we went to labour ward and had some lovely gel rubbed into unmentionable places to try to bring on contractions
the people come back and break my waters
more waiting (with a little bit of pain thrown in)
now i get the drip that will definitely make me have contractions
waiting with lots of pain and walking
10 hours later i get an epidural
we go to sleep
we get woken by epidural machine regularly malfunctioning which means it lets out ear splitting beeps.
