It’s less than convenient! Who’s great idea was it to make pregnant women walk down a huge hill to the back of a school?! A man’s idea probably (no offence to the men reading this). Oh and not to mention walking back up the hill!!
Anyway, after the trek to the appointment I walk in to find its not my usual midwife! Why? I booked to see her so why am I seeing a randomer. Right when I really needed some friendly advice!!!!
The usual took place, blood pressure, heartbeat, everything ok? – no I’m pretty sure I’m in labour actually! I asked her to check my blood results as the hospital said they’d be ready… Apparently they wouldn’t be so she didn’t even bother to check. Why meeeee!
Off I go, baby is healthy, in pain, ready for my walk back up the hill. Yay. No more informed about what’s happening with my body at the moment.
Earlier I said I wasn’t having contractions. But I certainly think I am. I have a constant dull backache that every now and then becomes more intense accompanied with tummy tightenings and period pain. Especially this evening.
I’ve spent the afternoon round my Grandparents as a change of scenery but I’m also absolutely terrified of being one of those women who give birth unexpectedly on the toilet – the thought of having P1 witness that horrifies me!
I’m so going to have a really slow, painful labour. I can feel it – and it blooming hurts!!!!!!!!!
