    So, today I am 1-2cm dilated. Still they think I'm going to need the induction tomorrow. Currently writing a birth plan (wasn't going to bother when going to the midwife led unit, as there was no point, but now I've got to go to the hospital I feel the need to make a few points!). Still hoping for as natural a delivery as possible - I can't have pethedine or diamorphine due to allergies, so they are out of the equation! Also hoping it will all be quick, although I doubt it!
    Bag is packed though, with loads of snacks in (I'm a coeliac, and I know the hospital don't provide gluten free meals). So will be that and oh bringing in McD's chips etc on his way in!
    Worried about the fact that oh will only be able to be with me during visiting hours, that I'll be in hospital on a ward with other people overnight (and will not be able to sleep at all as I really struggle at the best of times), and that oh will be kicked out after birth if I give birth overnight.
    Want to be out of hospital asap!

    Hopefully it'll not take too long seeing as you are already starting to dilate. Good luck! X
