MY HOSPRIAL BIRTH WAS A NIGHTMARE.TO START WITH I WAS ALREADY 2CM BUT MY CONSULTANT WANTED ME ON THE DELIVERY WARD SO DEMANDED HE MAKE ME 3CM AND HAVE MY WATERS BROKEN.
THE MIDWIFE WAS SO STUPID(I HAD A TERMINATION AT 18,REGRETEDIT BUT GLAD IVE GOT RILEY NOW)AND THE MIDWIFE BEGAN TO SAY SHE DIDNT NEED TO BE THERE FOR ME AS ID DONE IT ALL BEFORE,THIS BEING IN FRONT OF MY MUM(BREAKING PATIENT CONFIDENTUALITY!)MY MUM DID NO THANK GOD BUT I HAD TO TELL THE MIDWIFE TO READ MY NOTES,HER REPLAY WAS SORRY I SHOULD HAVE READ YOUR NOTES.
NEEDLESS TO SAY I DID HAVE A VERY NICE MIDWIFE WHO WE PUT UP FOR NIMINATION IN THE MIDWIFE OF THE YEAR(SHE DIDNT WIN)BECAUSE SHE MADE ME AN MY FAMILY FEEL AT EASE.
ALL BIRHTS ARE DIFFERENT BUT I THINK IT DOES DEPEND ON WHERE YOU GO AND WHAT THE STAFF ARE LIKE.
I WOULD MUCH LIKE A HOME BIRTH SECOND TIME ROUND BUT WOULD HAVE TO DO LOTS OF TALKING TO THE HUBBY.

IM SORRY,I DIDNT MEAN TO PUT THE FEAR OF GOD INTO YOU ABOUT BIRTH,I THINK IT WAS BECAUSE I WAS EXPECTING EVERYTHING TO GO SO SMOOTHLY.WE DID GO TO PARENT CLASSES AD THEY DID SAY PREPARE YOUR SELF JUST IN CASE,BUT I WAS SO SURE NOTHING COULD GO WRONG,BUT I WAS PRE-ECLAMPTIC.
I DIDNT DO A BIRTH PLAN BUT REALY WISHED I HAD NOW BUT HEY MY LITTLE MAN IS HERE AND ALL THAT WAS WELL WORTH IT FOR HIM AT THE END.
HOPE YOUR DOING OK ANYWAY.

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
