    Try to stay cool calm and collected, and relax as much as possible, conserve your energy!!

    It sounds like you are close!

    If you want labour to progress, definately do things like walking and fitball, it can only help things. Google tips to bring on labour.. I think it would be beneficial now things have started for you. I would suggest trying to get a good nights sleep if nothing hapens!

    For me, I had globs of clear ewcm like snot, about the size of a large marble, twice, about an hour apart. An hour later my waters broke. Contractions were light irregular and on/off until about 14 hrs later.

    I had the first glob of ewcm 11pm, waters broke around 1 am, we went to hospital early as we had a long drive so were there by about 4am... contractions didn't really start until about 6 pm, I hadn't slept a wink since about 10 am the day before... By 8 pm I was a wreck, at 3 cm and falling asleep for a min or two between contractions... I got an epi, had a great nights sleep, but I stalled at 6cm even with cintocin. emergency csect 10am.
    I really do think if idea had a good nights sleep I may have labored alot better and possibility of having avoided a csect.

    Good luck!

    About 20 mins lol. I only had a 4 hour labour though so things went way too quick for my liking.
    Good luck hope it happens soon.

    I'm thinking I will just head to the shops now and get stuff for dinner, just carry on as normal tonight and try and get a good night sleep, unless anything major happens.

    Apart from the light cramping every so often, everything is as normal so I think I'm probably better off trying to sleep tonight and then I can help it along tomorrow if need be!

    It's bub's great grandma's birthday tomorrow though, would be a pretty cool present for her!!
