I'm almost 39 weeks pregnant due to be induced on Sunday night due to baby's heart condition and gestational diabetes.
Anyway, yesterday I had internal exam to check my cervix and was given a bishops score of 5. OB has been saying bubs head is very low, cervix was soft and thinning but no dilation yesterday. He felt that it was unlikely I would go into spontaneous labour before induction.
So... Since about 3am this morning I've been getting period like pain coming and going. Felt like I needed to go to toilet (tmi) but nothing happens! Got up to make a cup of tea and standing made it worse. Sitting down again and it's dull and not as bad.
I've had no loss of plug that I've noticed or show. Waters not broken or anything.
This is my first too so i have absolutely no clue. Our hospital is an hour away (only one that has a NICU to take care of bubs heart when born) so a quick trip to check on me is not really an option.
I'm thinking I just sit and relax and see if it gets worse.
If it continues I will ring midwife at OBs rooms but they are not open yet. I don't think it's anything?
Any thoughts?How much weight do I put on the OBs opinion yesterday? Could the internal bring something on (he didn't do a sweep or anything) ?
