    My story: admitted 9am on 12th and had the 24 hr pessary inserted at 12 pm, no realy pains just mind cramping and tighning everything had settle down by 2am. Pesser removed at 12 pm on 13th was 3 cm and they decided I did t need another pessery just break my waters. Waited until 8:30 then the consultant broke my waters at 10:40 as the midwife I had couldn’t reach! Because baby wasnt full engagemed consultant wanted me on the “ dreaded “ hormone drip. StRted contracting straight away and was pushing by 12:00 midnight and he was born at 00:42. it was 2 hours from being 3cm and breaking waters to him being born xx

  • Had baby Tillie Rose last night 15/09/2018 at 11.01pm after severe pre-eclampsia and another poor growth scan. Was induced and had contractions within 20mins of pessary and shot from 4cm to 10cm in 5mins. she came with 3 pushes and weighed 4lbs 8oz and 17" long. She so much tinier than even the weekly scans suggested. All happy and healthy and feeding like a dream. Hoping to get home tomoz image
