So due date has been and gone (euughhh) but today we celebrated my grandad’s life.
He had a lovely service and it was brilliant to see all the family come together to reminisce over the good days, we laughed and cried but we supported each other.
It’s been a really long day and although it was so nice to talk to family that I haven’t seen in a while we had to leave for a midwife appointment. I had been booked in for a sweep.
I had read a lot about these sweeps and they sounded uncomfortable and painful, and they were right, she attempted to do the sweep but couldn’t do it as I have something called an unfavourable cervix, Brilliant!
I had also mentioned to her that I was feeling reduced movements again, she said being as I’m overdue to go straight to the hospital and she will call it in. She explained to me that there is a high possibility of me being induced. I was so flipping nervous when she said that.
We went home to pick the hospital bag and folder with all my maternity notes and went straight to the hospital.
I was put on the monitor and yet again baby heart rate was fluctuating too much. They kept me in for further observations and after a couple of hours they gave me the option to stay in and observe me or go home and keep and eye on things, as long as I came back in the morning to be observed again, I took the latter option.
I think baby Pratt is going to make an appearance soon…
