    Finally getting somewhere!
    My blood pressure was quite high at my midwife appointment yesterday (usually in the low range of normal) so I was referred to assessment unit. They monitored me for a few hours, wasn't going any lower - gave me a sweep and some medication. Ended up having to stay in overnight to be regularly checked!

    Had gone down a bit this morning but they decided to induce rather than prolong anything!
    Had a pessary inserted so it's pretty much a waiting game now :)
    I feel so ill though haha. X

    UPDATE
    Sorry it took a while to update!
    The tablet worked and my waters were broken around midnight Friday/Saturday! Was put on a drip to kickstart the contractions, ended up having an epidural (definitely recommended and I never thought I'd want one) and was fully dilated by 1pm Saturday afternoon. Started pushing at 2, baby was getting distressed so delivered by forceps in the end.

    Baby Daisy arrived at 2:57pm 22/06/13 and is amazing!! Weighed in at just under 8lbs and well worth all the drama :) ill do a birth story at some point over next few days xx

    Slowwww progress! Had the pessary in for 30 hours, went from being a fingertip dilated to being just able to touch babys head but not able to break waters yet so had a tablet inserted and another check in 6 hours to see what's happening x
