    Can't you ask for a single person's room @[email protected] ?
    I'm sorry to hear you've been having such a rough time. Like Carly said, maybe you could ask the OH for some earplugs or headphones for some music? I'm really really hoping your waters break when she's head down! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!x

    Congrats @Starrynight on the birth of your son! Doesn't sound at all like the dream birth but glad you came out of it so positively! Hope your family and friends can help you out soon when you get back home. A 3rd degree tear and episiotomy isn't a laughing matter. Take care of yourself so that you can take care of the baby!x

    Saw the midwife today. Baby is head down, locked in and looking ready to go any minute. Also measuring 40 weeks already (I'm 38.5). Certainly feels like it!
    I'm getting a sweep on Wed in the hopes that i can avoid full on hormonal induction next week.
    Tbh i still don't know how i feel about induction. There just seem to be so many additional risk factors. Not too mention added pain and stress. Part of me would rather have a c section, but the recovery is rotten and I've got a toddler who won't understand why jumping on mummy is a bad idea!

    Getting really anxious again :/

    I would choose induction over c section any day, recovery is slow with c section. I was induced with my daughter, it ended up long and painful but all worth it end and I had no tearing, so very speedy recovery. X

    The past few evenings I have been having short sharp pains in the pelvic area. Sorta in the middle. Anyone else having these sort of pains and know what they are.

    Things are getting LOW. Honestly, I can hardly walk. Braxton hicks, losing bits of plug, nesting like crazy. I'm 38 weeks tomorrow. Surely I'm going to be early?! :pray:

    That's your babies head knocking about in your pelvis. In all honesty, that feeling makes me feel sick. It's all good though, shows everything is going how it should x

    Your ligaments between your pelvic bones are starting to get a bit stretched due to the baby and the weight you have to carry. It will go away one your little one is born.x

    Saw midwife yesterday and I'm 4/5 engaged, so that explains the struggling to walk lol.
    Getting a couple of sweeps tomorrow morning so hopefully they will work and i won't need the full on induction. Tbh i feel like i could go any moment now!

    Exciting to read all of your stories babies are on their way!!!
    I spent a week in hospital as baby was moving from head up to head down way too much...
    offered me c section for today. Until they examined me this morning and offered induction....!!
    Which is happening as I am writing :)
    I sent my OH home to sleep. I am tired and have horrible heart burn.... that’s going to be so so long....
    i have been put a pessary to help my cervix.... it’s now been almost 8 hours. I had NO symptoms... until the minute my partner went home and am now having 5 minutes contractions but they aren’t painful...
    hopefully will have a baby on August the 15th!

    Anyone else really struggling? I can barely walk or leave the house. Tree heartburn is still awful. I'm constantly in pain but not 'the right kind of pain'. All the while I'm looking after an energetic toddler!
    Aware I'm just moaning now, but soooooooooo fed up!
    Sweep did v little btw. Some bleeding and have been much more uncomfortable since then, but no signs of actual labour unfortunately. Got another booked for Mon
