So finally after all the issues we've had with this pregnancy, the iduction particularly they finally took me in!! Arrived at hospital at 3, gel went in at 5.15, contractions started about 30mins later, was took back up to the ward and hubby sent home at 8!
Was told they were going to examine me again at 11 to see what progress had been made & to make a plan as to whether i needed more gel, or if they were guna break my waters then or wait until the morning!
Well 11 o'clock came and i was put on the monitor, it was picking up my contractions every 7-10 mins, was told baby's heart rate seemed fine. They send there was not point in examining me because as I was contracting they wouldn't be able to put more gel in anyway!
I was taken of the monitor, offered paracetamol and told to get some rest! I got up, got as far as the toilet only to be called back as they had noticed babys heart rate had dropped well below 100 a few times so I needed to be checked again!Everything fine with the second trace!
So here I am still on the ward 11 hours and 14 mins since the gel went in and im contracting strongly every 2-3 mins! Have just had a 50 min hot shower and am now lied in the bed waiting for something else to happen!!
Really didn't want to wake people up so thought id message on here xx
