Jay - I've been able to hand express colostrum for a couple of weeks now and I the last few days its been coming really easily when I palpate in the right spot so hopefully it will mean feeding shouldn't be a drama and actual milk will come in quickly.
Survived internal examination! I am 3cm dilated already, cervix nice and soft so she was able to do a good membrane sweep and expects I'll go into labour in the next day or two. Thank goodness!!!!!
