So i had a SS on Fri morning lost some of my plug, she said that it prob wont be successful as my cervix was still really high and thick but i lost my plug anyway, wasnt even expecting that, started having pains the night before the SS and they were every 15/20 mins not timeable. Then Friday daytime they dropped to every 10 mins and have stayed like that since, i know they are labour as i have to breathe through them, Since sat night i have had them through the night so im lacking sleep, they seem to ease after sleep but get worse towards the end of the day when i have been up all day, Im tired and i have another SS tomorrow, tomorrow i will be 41 weeks exactly, due to be induced on Friday as baby is large, i just dont feel like im getting anywhere, None of my babys have exactly found their way out on their own! I have tried everything barring castor oil, as i draw the line at that! ANy advice i know that friday is the limit regardless but i dont want to be induced and spend more time than needed in hospital HELP PLEASE!!

labor will come on it's own. You cannot control it or help it along. Inductions are not horrible and do not cause you to be in the hospital longer. IDK who you've been talking to, but they have unnecessarily filled your head with crap and scared you/.

ve been induced with my second, had to stay in hospital for the meds to work then the labour and recovery what i ment was i would like to be at home to labour then go in and be at least 4 cm so i dont have to spend time away from my bubbas im not scared of being induced just fed up of contracting every 10 mins for the last few days and i feel like im not progressing, was the same with my daughter and it took 8 days before they realised that the reason i wasnt dialiting properly is because she was coming out forehead first, with my son i was induced, i just feel like my body cant do anything right, i cant fall pregnant properly, i cant give birth properly and all the midwives keep telling me is "youll be fine" i know ill be fine but why tell me ill be fine because i have big feet (actually what one midwife toldme) im fed up and tired and i cant even eat properly as the contractions make me sick! just wanted advice if anyone had had a labour as bad as mine usually are and what they found helpful?

nothing helps. you signed up for this when you got pregnant. it sucks, but you knew what you were getting into.
