Pregnancy Update

Just been to see the midwife again today so I thought I’d give you an update. Everything is fine – baby measuring as she should, and is positioned well. I’m 38 weeks pregnant tomorrow which means there’s only 2 weeks to go!

I’ve seen the consultant two weeks ago and the plan is still to try a normal birth up to due +10. If that doesn’t happen then they’re booking me in to have my waters broken on the 18th. Assuming that labour will progress – I need to be dilating 2-4cm every 4 hours otherwise it’s an emergency c-section on the 18th July.

If waters don’t break then I’m being booked in for an elective c-section on July 20th.

So pretty much, baby will be here at the very latest July 20th!!

If truth be told I’m scared about the labour. Everyone keeps telling me it’s easier with the second as you’ve gone through it before. I was reading about signs of labour and it was saying that active labour doesn’t start until you’re 4cm. Well with Little Miss I never went into active labour so in my opinion this can be treated as a first pregnancy when it comes to the labour bit! And so I’m scared! I really really am! I know it’s irrational as I’m sure that everything will be fine, but I can’t help it. I hate the thought of having to go through it! But there’s nothing I can do now as she will be coming out one way or another!

Wish me luck!! :/

    Don’t be scared! It is going to be so beautiful and at the end of it you will have this beautiful baby that can’t wait to meet you!

      Oh I know… and the way I’m feeling now it’ll be so much easier having her out than in!

    Exciting!! I had similar with my first, and then ended in a cs with my second. To think not long until baby is here!

      I’m due in a week or so but likelihood is that it’ll be the 20th! Which looks sooooo far away!

    Oh good luck lovely! It’s scary and exciting in equal measures, I would swap places with you and have done it twice, so it couldn’t have been that bad ha! Take care xxx
