Hello mums,
Today I am 5 days over due and ready to dive in after this baby!
Yesterday we spent 10 hours in maternity and was pretty frightening at one stage.
I went in for a basic appointment to discuss my options and induction if necessary, And realised bub had been a little quieter then usual, So they popped me on the CTG just to check up on the little one.
They discovered his heart was accelerating rather high and the movements where very unusual . I was on the CTG for 2 hours then they sent me off for some lunch and a good walk around, I came back to the hospital where they had me on CTG for 10 minutes then 6 people came in ripping monitors off me and asking me to race to the ultrasound clinic as they think baby is in distress ( it all happened so fast I became emotional ). I went for the ultrasound where they found baby was NOT in distress and no meconium in the waters ( YAY!) and baby is just measuring smaller then he should ( which they weren’t concerned about). I had to go back and spent another hour on the monitor where he behaved and all looked great. My first pregnancy was so smooth and complication free and my labour was perfect! He arrived ON due date and I guess it really does go to show every pregnancy is really such a different experience.
I am REALLY hoping to avoid induction which is booked to take place next monday ( terrified at the thought of being induced).
I’m just glad I trusted my instincts about his movements and they did make sure all is OKAY!
Mums definitely know!

  • Don’t stress too much about having an induction. At least you’re not caught short with labour, you’re in hospital right from the very start. I was induced and it’s not scarey at all. It’s tough, but that’s just labour, you’ll be fine

  • I’m glad it’s worked out well. It’s true, every pregnancy is different and you do need to go with your mother’s instinct. Congratulations on your new baby.

  • Hi ladies!
    Well yes this baby did eventually.make his arrival!
    At 10 days over I was induced and it was a horrible experience…. its turned me completely off wanting more children. They started me on the prostin gel which gave me pains through the day then at 5pm my waters were broken and it just went downhill from there his heart was decelerating with contractions and meconium was in my waters so i was prepped for ceaser then 2 minutes later his head was out…. anyhow his here his healthy he weighed 7lb3oz and was 54cm long. Meet Michael ♥
