EEKS! I'm at the hospital now being monitored. Had contractions from 4am and it started being more regular at every 5 min.
I cannot decide if I should pray that this is the real thing or false alarm. Cos it really hurts. Cannot imagine another few weeks of this. But at the same time, like not ready for birth!!!
Wah! Raoow! Hang in there! Hope everything's ok n keep us updated!!
Yanting, my gynae Didnt do membrane sweep too n I just Heard about it from you guys!
my gynae also says my gate closed still.. No using of hand to check of dilation. Maybe tomorrow? I dont know man
A membrane sweep is a way of bringing on labour when you're overdue. It'll be the first step your midwife or doctor offers, before other methods of induction, to get your labour going.
What is a membrane sweep? - BabyCentre
Seems like today is the day! I'm 3cm dilated with contractions every 5 min. After doctor checked for dilation, i went to pee and wanted to eat cos super hungry. But i started bleeding in the toilet. Think it's from the internal check. So back to the bed.
Hope all goes fast and smooth. Update you all when I can.
Oh man raoow!! That's fast! N we were all chatting last night!!
All the best to you raoow! Hear from you soon

Mummies, bring extra phone batteries. I'm whatsapping hubby and gfs in between contractions. I wanted to walk so that baby can drop faster and contractions more manageable but now not allowed. Later in delivery room, I'll tell my gynae and heck care. Cos lying down for me really slowed down my contractions!!
Yanting is right. My EDD is 22nd. Today only 37 weeks 2 days! Baby only 2.2kg last Tues and later today was my next appointment and growth scan. But baby thinks otherwise!
Contractions are manageable with breathing now. But cos quite spaced out so I've time to recover. I'll see how it will be like later when more close together and longer.
Ya!! If want Epi must decide earlier. Coz Anesthetist takes time to come.
we are all behind you raoow!!!
Wow.. so exciting! !! Jiayou! Breathe steadily.
I caught a cold and the med gp gave me had no effect at all. Sick since ytd and no signs of recovery. What should I do? I'm afraid if baby decides to come I may have no strength to push.
