    Just been to the doctors, everything is fine, head still not engaged but cervix is finally open, 1cm dilated. Doctor said that it will be around a week now, what are other people's experiences with this?

    Also I haven't had my show yet, should I have done as the cervix is open? (I wished I had asked this but only thought of it on the way back)

    Sounds like you are on your way hun, great news.

    I thought you got your show once the cervix started softening and opening, but then again i didn't notice i had one with Amy as it came in one big lump and i flushed it without knowing!!

    It varies in different times hun depending on your body.

    Hope things go fast for you, you could go in tonight
    :D :D :D

    cool babsi!

    dont worry about not having a show, you may have flushed it without knowing.

    my cervix has started to open too, hope you have your baby soon! :D

    Thanks, I didn't realise it could be that fast, the doctor seemed so sure it would be a week, hopefully he is being a little too cautious.

    Now another question, which may sound stupid, is the best sign to have in some ways as all I have had the last 2 weeks is period pains in the back and some BH's but mainly in my lower back.

    Hopefully it will be soon now.

    Same here, i have had period pain front and back for the last few weeks, it will have been your cervix softening and dilating causing it.

    At least your on the right side of it now! :D :D :D

    Thanks, I really thought nothing was happening the last 2 weeks and it was one of those things, and had an internal 2 weeks ago and nothing changed and was expecting today would be the same.

    I hope one of us goes in soon, there doesn't seem to be many babies atm lol

    Thought something was going to happen last night, got some really bad back pains but nothing and it has gone away now :( Since the beginning of the week am in pain when I walk specially in my stomach, had this when I walked a little bit but now it is just getting up to go to the toilet.

    Please be soon!!!!

    I am now beginning to get a cold, trying to take as much vitamin C as possible.

    I have been getting tightenings every 20 mins since 5.00pm

    they are not hurting tho, just tight so im guessing they are just braxon hicks rather than contractions :(

    I have had it all tonight, cuddles haven't seemed to do anything for me and for all the pain it gives me i am not going to try again either i have had it 3 times a day for a week!! Lol
    I have got a pineapple tonight i am going to try ( i heard you are supposed to have loads before it will do anything though!) i have had a steaming hot bath and i can't think of anything else, so i am going to give up from this point, it's making me feel worse that nothing is happening and it is making me more irratable which isn't fair on OH and Amy- if it's going to happen then it will if it's not i'll just be induced. :D
