Hi I normally am in the preggers forum but just would like to ask you lovely ladies a question.
Was your first baby early or late?
Also did your labour start naturally or assisted?

My son arrived either 8 days late by the date on dating scan, or bang on time by last period date! Had a sweep to start things off, though the mw didn't think it would do anything as my cervix was quite high still but my hind waters went 8 hours later and he was born 10 1/2 hours after that, so something obviously went right!

Hi my first was 12 days late (by scan dates) - went into natural labour but didn't get passed 4cm so was induced to speed things up
Currently 41+4 so this one's goning to be very late too!
Good luck hope yours arrives on time x

Charlotte was 12 days early (born on a Sunday).
On the previous Thursday I was leaking what I thought was wee as only very slight trickle. Friday night had a show. Rang mw on Sat morning. She said to wait as labour might not start immediately. 3am Sunday morning went into labour. Went into maternity suite, mw checked me was 1cm dilated and had to be put on anti-biotic drip as my leakage was hind waters not wee!
Born naturally, had pethidine as pain relief in labour for 19 hours, with 2nd degree tear.
All worth it in the end!
Good luck xx

My first was 2 days late and started all naturaly. my second was a different story he tried to come 11 weeks early and every week after that thank god he stayed in there lol.
he ended up 1 day early but had a sweep and my waters broken. It seemed once I was ready for him he didn't want to come out . typical bloke lol

my lo came 2 weeks early, went into labour naturally on xmas Day after spending the afternoon playing on the wii lol waters were trickling but didn't go prop so when I went in the mw popped them to help things speed along. He was eventually born on the 27th
Mar 20, 2009 3:57PM
my 1st was 5 days early and started naturally with no complications what so ever.
Mar 20, 2009 4:35PM
I calculated my due date as the 3rd but midwife said 5th - she came on the 4th so I think we can call that on time
My waters broke and she arrived 13 hours later.
Mar 20, 2009 4:37PM
Mine was natural, waters went first and he was born at exactly 37 weeks, so no time to panic about labour etc!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
