I'm 39+2 weeks with my 2nd baby, been having Braxton Hicks for over a month now & no signs of baby! Contractions & cramps have been getting stronger over the last week but no show or waters breaking & I'm just sick to death of the constant pain now 😪
My 1st baby was 9 days late, my waters broke but I didn't go into labour so had to be induced with an emergency cesarean 12 hours later because baby was too big for me, 3cm bigger than the average baby in head circumference & 9lbs 7oz. I'm starting to feel really low now as it seems like my body doesn't have a clue how to birth a baby, only to torture me 😞 has anyone else been through anything similar & gone on to have a natural delivery? I'm booked in for a c section on 15th if no baby but I'm thinking of cancelling it because I want to try for a natural delivery but at this point I'm feeling like a total failure 😥
My friend pretty much sneezed & had her baby the other day & that's what tipped me over the edge! She literally went from cramps to baby in 8 hours yet I've been cramping/contracting for a week! It's soul destroying!! Any advice or words of encouragement would be great as I'm getting very low now, thank you!
