    I was offered this with my 4th but I refused. Had to be done in theatre because its risky and there's always the chance they can turn back. Thankfully he got himself head down. He was in an unstable lie though not breech. They induced me and I ended up in an emergency section anyway ha. But go with your gut feeling. Everyone's situation is different xxx

    I had my apot with the consultant on Tuesday. I feel up the wall!!!
    I thought I was going to go and come out with a firm section date and plan in place but nope!
    So I am 35 +5 today and they want to see me on 2nd April I will be 38 +3 I think. I will have another growth scan and they want to examine me to see if they can brake my waters. If they think it would be possible they will book me in the following day and start a slow induction (as I have had previous section)
    If they can't they have booked me a section for April 12th day before due date as back up. They are chocker there was no earlier dates.
    However in the meantime my little man is still doing somersaults and getting himself in all kinds of positions so they have told me if that continue at 37 weeks I need to be checked out and if he's still in an unstable lie will have to be admitted until I can deliver.
    So I just feel in limbo haha! Bags are packed just in case but I do know that no longer than 4 weeks tomorrow he will be here.
    How are the rest of you? Xxx

    At my last MW app at 35 weeks she couldn’t figure out which position my baby was lying in but doesn’t think she’s head down anymore, possibly transverse, but said if she’s not 100% confident she’s head down at my next app will send me for a scan, was telling my mum about it my mum said she had same experience with me and had the turning procedure thing done and it was horrendous, took ages, it was painful, there is a risk to the baby, and I turned back around again before she had even left the hospital, so warned me not to be pushed into it, then funnily
    enough a girl at work said exact same thing the next day - she refused to have it done, I don’t like the sound of it but I haven’t done a whole lot of my own research on it really either, I would do a bit of your own research first before deciding if your comfortable with it or not xx

    OMG MM what a nightmare! I hope they can just come up with a concrete plan very soon! I’m not surprised you feel in limbo, hopefully whatever option they go with goes smoothly, what do you think you would prefer? X

    Wow, so frustrating!!
    I can't believe how nhs care differs from hosp to hosp and even within the same hosp!
    My friend got her section date at 20 weeks, same place as me, they told me I had to go to vbac clinic (I didn't) and I got mine at 28 weeks. Funnily enough when I saw a lady consultant!
    I think if you want a section that is it, thry should get you booked in not mess you about. I was really upset for 8 weeks.

    I finish work today! I made it!

    Haven’t really posted on here as been so busy, got my section date for the 24th April so 2 days before my due date. Kind of feel like he will come before that though as he is so low and keep getting bad cramps, everything is nearly ready just sorting out the other 2’s bedroom and then that’s it. Just hope the final 5 weeks speed on by.

    He was also measuring 5lb 6oz at my growth scan last week so will see what size he is at my 36 week scan x

    Still waiting!! He’s too comfy in there! Had terrible contractions all through the night but still only 1cm dilated! So it’s a waiting game til they can get in and break my waters. Hopefully it won’t be too long! Can’t wait to get my epidural haha xxx

    Ah hope he gets a move on soon! Yeah I don’t blame you for getting the epidural, I’ve heard lots of women saying once they got the epidural and could relax for a bit things started moving much faster, good luck! X

    Hope you aren't in too much discomfort!! I was adamant I wasn't having an epidural and ended up begging my OH for one

    Are you glad you got one in the end? Do you think it helped move things along? I’m just not sure what I want to do about pain relief, went to a class where the midwife basically said just try and get by without epidural just breathing and gas and air x

    I am in terms of pain, It eased the pain almost instantly but I was on the drip and got to 8cm before the took me down for an emergency section so I didn't reach pushing stage. My friend hypo birthed and said it was amazing but I don't think I can relax myself that much!!
    I would say don't rule anything out and don't be upset or scared to ask if you do feel you need it

    Thanks night owl, it’s not something I’d even really thought of until she mentioned it so it wasn’t til I got home I really started looking in to it. Don’t think I feel very comfortable with it to be honest so we’ll see what he’s doing on Tuesday but probably will decline it x

    It's all been going on for me this weekend! Started having tightenings and pains on satSatur morning about 11am... Still going by 3pm so started timing them and they were coming every 3-5mins! Rung birthing centre and they wanted to see me as I'm preterm. Doctor examined me and cervix was closed but they wouldn't let me go home coz I was having contractions! So had to spend the night in the hospital. Eventually got to come home at 11am today! Still getting tightenings and pains but not consistent enough to time. I turn 36 weeks tomorrow... I'm just hoping it's not guna be like this for another 4 weeks!!!
