You can cope. Your body is made to cope with childbirth. Hold on in there we are all here for you and baby. Try and think positive thoughts - easier said than done I know. My little cousin was born at 28 weeks some 35 years ago wouldn't believe it to see her now with her own little ones.

You can cope. You have to cope. From here on in you are never going to be number 1 again. No matter how tired how down how much pain you are in. You are a mum and your little one needs you!!

Stay strong. Childbirth is the most natural thing in the world. And the most rewarding x

Do your midwives know about the fibro ?

They might be able to stop the labour ( my daughter had to have hers stopped twice)

If your baby is born early the NICU team will take over and they are experts, totally brilliant. My daughter's baby had to be delivered at 27 weeks, the baby in the next incubator was 25 weeks, twins born at 32--- they're all fine.

NICU seems scary at first but go with it and you'll feel secure and safe as the nurses are so knowledgeable and so caring.

At the moment, it's one breath at a time. Focus on just breathing, it will help to calm your mind.

Hayley at the point when you feel you can't take any more, that it's gone on too long and you desperation kicks in, is often about when the baby is born. Soon you're going to give birth to a beautiful child, who you will love and will love you.

That child will go in to have their own life, friends and maybe family and by doing so will bring more people in to your life for you to love.

Hang on in there sweetheart we are all routing for you. Xx

I honestly can’t take no more I’m exhausted and shattered. I’m in so much pain

Have you had pain relief ? If the birth isn't imminent ask for an epidural, there are ways to get through this so ask your midwives for help.

In that case you have other options, pethadin or an equivalent is good.

oh Hayley, hang on in there, it is worth every bit of pain and exhaustion, promise. Being practical have you gone thru all the pain management options? Many women don't want an epidural, like myself 3 years ago but I had one in the end as the labour went on and on, I was exhausted like you but as soon as I had an epidural I could rest and then conserve my energy for the really big pushes at the end. They will be watching you and baby to make sure baby is ok in there so try and take that fear and let them deal with it. Go over some other possible pain relief that would be practical at ur stage and see wat would make you more comfortable. If you can get ur birthing partner to do the deep breathing with , it helps so much as ur focusing really hard on that and it will get you thru the hardest bits, ask midwife to do it with you. Ask for any other help they can give you . You can do it, everyone is by your side, love and hugs to you x x x

Hayley you can do it think of the little patter of feet and the tiny hands.I know it's the hardest days work in your life but it's the best days work in your life and it's the worst pain but the best pain in your life all because of the little treasure that you have created.The unconditional love in your arms. I would give any thing to have mine as babies again. I went into premature labour at 30 weeks and my son and he is so strong an 11 year old Messi footballer who plays and train for 6 days a week.so hang in there girl keep going it's worth it in the end and let me know what you have sending hugs to you both you will find your inner strength ❤️💐🤱

Aw Hayley it’s a lot for a fibro body to cope with but you can do it. You will get through this and you will have a lovely baby as a reward.

In the meantime put your hand up for any and all pain relief you can get.

Noticed this was posted hours ago so hope you have been safely delivered of your baby by now. All suffering from fibro battle pain everyday and at least labour pains do end with a result of something wonderful. Sending love and hugs xx

You can do this Hayley ,you will soon have a beautiful baby girl or boy😊 I know it's hard I've had 4 and said everytime I can't do it but I Did,I promise you it will all be worth it when you hold your gorgeous little baby for the first time,there's no feeling like it x

Arrrrr thinking of you. Ask for pain relief if you are struggling. You don’t want to be putting your body under any more stress than necessary. As a Mum to a 9 month old it’s the best thing in the world but also the hardest especially with the fibro and m.e.

You are doing great, you and your little princess will meet soon and you’ll forget about the pain... so they say!! Xx

Good luck and keep us updated xxx

No need for you to worry, I had my daughter at 32 wks. No problems. Even a decent weight 5lb 4oz. I had the worst pregnancy ever. Womb kept filling up with bloodwhil. My waters broke at 24 wks and stayed that way. My body was still trying to repair it's self so continued to try and fill back up with water. From then on I had to wear big bulky sanitary towels. Because I didn't have any waters. My labour was so quick, she was born in the ambulance. Good luck enjoy your sleep while you can. Xx
