    Thanks redCreamingSoda, maybe I was a bit grumpy yesterday afternoon? And took your post the wrong way

    I guess the thing for me is, I don't have internals, never have so I really just need to go off my own instinct to work out how labour is progressing (and my midwife observing external signs). I am wondering whether I will have a pool this time, but I am worried the temptation to get in too early will strike again and have the same pattern of halting progression. Might just stick to the home bath...

    13 weeks to go, but realistically, I'm expecting to go over by a week, so more like 14 weeks
