This is my second pregnancy and after 15 days of braxton hicks and two major false alarms I have had enough. I want baby out NOW! I have been 1cm dilated and baby's head is engaged for well over a week now. I was having contractions (quite painful) for 5 hours last night only to stop after a hot bath. So all my excitement thinking baby is finally coming has been seriously deflated by the ceasing of contractions. I am not getting a sweep until Tuesday next week, baby is measuring over the 100 percentile, so I am going to be like a burst couch after pushing this bruiser out! And to top it all off my husband managed to wangle nearly a month of paid leave as support to me as I haven't been well for the last month, will have to go back to work soon. So potentially I could be left home in labour with no-one to look after our four year old daughter. My family live 200 miles away and his live 1500 miles away. I'm freaking out this baby won't come when my husband is still at home and I have a traumatic birth, end up having a c-section and can't look after my daughter.
Baby please come!!!!
