    Nicolejoy - it seemed extremely busy with inductions (I was being induced) when I was there so I imagine that's what the problem was.... I was 5cms before they moved me to the delivery room too, so it wasn't an option before then.... just the luck of the draw I guess!

    That's crazy - I was also induced, a Friday morning around 8am or something like that - they were rushing to get me in early, I think... I'd stayed overnight the night before (my waters broke the previous morning but my contractions didn't start). And when I was induced, I was in the delivery room the whole time!! It must have been really busy when you were there!! Where were you before the delivery room?? In the labour ward?

    In the labour ward yes, it was tough being there without any support or pain relief (well tens machine) to be honest - it was a good 14 hours or so from the pain getting pretty strong to me being sent to a delivery room where I could be with my husband and theoretically get some pain relief. Oh well, we got through it and the baby is none the worse bless her!
