    hellloo, im back.

    well i have good news and bad news.

    good news is, im now 2 cm dilated!

    bad news is, my cervix is still long so could be like this for another few days :(

    I was having contractions on the monitr but i couldnt feel them, only constant peroid pains.

    the midwife did a sweep and said to hire a tens machine to help with the tightening pains.

    who here used a tens in there labours? is it really worth me trying it?

    Hi Layla, I hope things aren't too long for you now, you have just mentioned something that I knew nothing about. I have been having horrible back pains for the last few days like strong period pains could that mean I am having contractions as well but not knowing?

    Time just goes so slow, but at least I know I only have 1 week before being induced.

    Hi Layla,

    You won't know me as i'm from the first/secong trimester at the mo but have been following all of your progress and the others in the third!

    When I had my first baby a couple of years ago I used a tens machine for about the first 10 hours of labour (it was a long one!) and it was really good. The only reason I took it off was to get into the birthing pool to try that too! Its sort of painful but in a way you get used to and then it becomes nice and does provide relief. I would definitely recommend it and am going to get one again!

    Anyway good luck and hope it happens for you soon!!

    I used a tens machine and found it really helpful. It's like they say, kinda painful but in a good way, like scratching an itch! I used it till then end, when hubby was just max-powering it all the way LOL

    Hi Layla - Hope things get moving for you soon, being 2cm dilated surely is a good sign!?

    Pips - I'm hiring my tens machine from this place:
    http://www.tens-hire.co.uk/ it's £20 plus £3 p&P for 6 wks hire (they send it to you 3 wks before your due date) They didn't charge me extra to post to Scotland.

    YAY!!!

    he said its fine to go ahead with the induction, i got to phone the hospital at 3pm on monday to find out what time i have to go in, they induce you in the evenings there instead of the morning.
    im so excited now, there is an end in sight! :D
