Last sweep today

so we will see if it works!!! I have been having a few pre labour symptoms. . Loads of strong tightenings when on ctg they ask me if I can feel them but they aren't painful. .. but I had a really big tightening on Mon went up to 100 in the ctg monitor and lasted about 20 seconds but before I had it I came over all funny like I was going to be sick and I felt my boobs contract like I was going to leak milk. .. never experienced that before and I've had it a few times since!... was on the ctg for over 2 hours yesterday as little mans heart beat kept having decels midwife took the trace to labour Ward in the end cos she was not 100% happy but she said the drs said it was ok. we're see what today brings. . :)

  • Started having contractions every 10-15 minutes for about an hour and thought wooo this is started getting all excited but they have stopped! :( hopefully they might start up again. ..

  • With my last that happened a repeatedly in the evening (when the children were in bed & I relaxed I reckon) and I started getting in the bath each time - the contractions would then die off - until the night when I got in and they got stronger and stronger and he was born the following day. It worked as a way of decided whether to go to bed or stay up! Sure he will be here soon, hang in there! x
