After receiving a jiffy bag stuffed with raspberry leaf tea from my mum (who swears its what got my little sister shifted at 13 days overdue), I drank five cups of it yesterday and then we went out for a curry.
I couldn’t sleep at all last night… what started it was worrying about being induced and not being able to sleep the night before that! Anyway, just before 4am i felt a pain which made me look at the clock to make a note of the time. After that, these sensations which could have been contractions were coming every 10 minutes, fairly regularly, for over two hours.
At about six o’clock, they even started to be about eight or nine minutes apart. But then, after one at 6.15, the next two weren’t quite as strong, and i drifted off to sleep. I woke up an hour or so later, worried that they had disappeared, but i seem to remember feeling one and going back to sleep. I woke up again at just before 9am and woke Tony up to tell him. The feeling still seemed to be there, but nowhere near as strong as in the night.
I’m now up, had my breakfast and shower. They seem to have subsided for now. We’re going to get ourselves out and walking and see if we can kick start them.
Watch this space…
