    What happened? Why do you think you are 3 cm dilated? And if you are who says you will be in labour soon?

    Hiya Suzanne...

    I was having regular very painful contractions from about 3am. Every 15-20 mins, also very strange shooting pains. I knew something wasn't quite right. The pain has subsided as have the contractions. Seems like she may not make it this year. Just waiting for a decision from the docs as to what they want to do. They've been so slow!!! Getting quite fed up now. On the speculum they said 3cm but on the exam they are saying 2. Gggrrrrrr x

    Yeah she seems very happy. Been on the monitar a few times and she's moving about and hr seems all good. She's a monkey! I really don't want to stay tonight but looks like I'll have to incase things progress suddenly. Can't take that risk x

    Ooh, that'd be quite cool if she was the first baby born in your area in 2016!
    Usually end up in the paper if that happens :D

    Unless your waters have gone though, if she's that early they ought to leave you alone if contractions stop. They'd only want to get the baby out if your waters have gone (as there's a small chance of infection) or if the baby starts showing signs of distress.

    Fingers crossed all will be well whether she's born tonight, tomorrow, or in a few weeks :D x

    That's what I said to my partner pheonix! Although I wouldn't want my mugshot in the papers! I don't know what I want for the best now. I was in huge shock when they said she's coming and now heated up for meeting her but she's being a tease. Got back pain back and had a couple of contractions lasting over 3 mins. Maybe things are happening again? X

    Yeah I'm staying in. No they haven't. There's a not so helpful midwife on tonight. I'm contracting more now but still irregular, she's saying they won't exam me to see of I've dilated anymore as that might disturb things and bring it on. The signs are their to the fact I am in labour so I don't know why they can't have a look so we have a better picture :( I've relented and taking some codeine in the hope it may enable me some sleep. My partner has just gone home. Feeling very odd and emotional! X

    Yes try to get rest and eat and drink if you can. With my first o went in and got to 3cm then was induced and couldn't eat so I had no energy x Hope things progress for you and you don't have too much of an uncomfortable night x

    Well that was the worst nights sleep ever. I'm situated opposite the staff office so they were on n out all night slamming doors and there's this very inconsiderate women across the way who kept talking on her phone, on loudspeaker!! Gggrrr. Grumpy today! But seems contractions have perhaps started agiain. Don't know what to hope for the best. Obviously the longer she stays put the better. But I'm very tired and uncomfortable xx
