HELP?

Hey guys!
Am 9 days overdue. Had a sweep on 31st and since had tightening.  Non painful but feels like it is constant and have had mild back pain. Now tonight I have had moderate back pain I'm at the end of my tether. I have had my mucous plug but no bloody show. Last night I felt the urge to BM but couldn't and all day today I have been feeling sick and or the need to bm. However no regular pains. I called the triage they said to stay at home etc. I'm a ftm had high BP at my last midwife appointment.  I'm due for induction Thursday.  Am I in the early stages of labour? Should I go and get checked out? I'm so over this pain!

Honestly that's ridiculous that you're 9 days over due & you still haven't been induced yet. My doctor induced me the day after my due date because he didn't think I would be able to pass my daughter vaginally because the longer they stay in after your due date the bigger they keep growing. You should go in complaining of pain & have them check you out maybe they'll just induce you. Good luck!

Seriously hun! I know they can and sometimes will leave you until you are term plus 12 but a. It's my first b. We've already established that my baby isn't going to be small. And now c. This morning upon wiping after a wee there was pink blood as I wiped. With either a pink blood drop or something down the loo.

I'm waiting up until the day I go into labor to have my baby. I always think that maybe they didn't estimate ur due date correctly although they cant always be sure. Unless its something wrong then I'll get induced. Good luck to u I hope all is well and ur beautiful baby is here soon
