Hi all, just looking for sympathy. Am 12 days overdue, and am meant to be induced on the 28th. Started getting contractions on Christmas Eve, ended up in the hospital at 12pm christmas day only to find I was one cm dialated. Decided to come home as there was a woman giving birth and the noise terrified me. Contractions carried on all day and got progressively more intense, was in agony at midnight so again went to hospital, to find out I am 2 cms dialated. After sitting in a bath for 1 hour decided to come home as very tired and emotional. Have spent all of today in pain, contractions are about 10 mins apart. I am just so tired and fed up, it really hurts and I just feel I cannot cope anymore. No show or waters breaking just a contraction. My OH has been so fantastic but I feel so alone, the hospital just say take 2 paracetomol and try a warm bath, which does nothing. Feel really sick and have had to force some pasta down me. I am now so scared about giving birth because I have just hurt for the last 2 days. When baby moves it really hurts again. Am so sorry for whining but I needed to offload. Just want to have this baby, have waited long enough now!!
