when did you girls (if you have) get stretch marks? i'm 36+4 today and not got a single one yet which has really shocked me as i got loads on my hips and legs from puberty so i really expected id get them in pregnancy! everyone says i will have escaped them if they haven't come by now?!
I'm due 27th, atm feeling great mostly. Getting more difficult to walk as bump is lower now. Day two of maternity leave, yesterday I got bored and started doing extra cleaning lol. I want to get baby clothes washed, but am waiting for a lovely sunny or windy day to hang them out.
I'm due 27th March. So far, I'm not really struggling much at all. Apart from the getting up every other hour in the night to have a wee. I started using a pillow a couple of nights ago too to prop up my bump.
Other than that, I'm still quite mobile, I was putting flat pack cabinets together yesterday! I have only suffered backache a little if I do too much in a day, but a sit down soon solves that I'm quite pleased at how I'm coping so far!
I'm on maternity leave now and I have spent this week putting the house to rights. Each room has had a day where I've concentrated on it to get it clean and tidy. Today is the bathroom's turn (and I'm procrastinating!) I've washed all the baby's clothes now and just have the nappies to do, but the weather's taken a turn for the worse here so they'll have to wait!
The only bad thing is that midwife reckons that although baby is head down, she is also back to back so I'm trying to get her to shift (though i'm not convinced midwife was right... as I often have a big solid lump near my belly button which I reckon is LO's bottom!)
Winterbaby86... no stretch marks here yet either. I'm surprised, but pleased I hope it continues, but I won't be overly upset if I do get some!
Siuan - snap! my little one is in the ROP position so i got told by the midwife on wednesday when i went to get checked out suspecting my waters may be leaking. she's been engaged since 33 weeks but she's fixed in a bit of an awkward posterior position i just hope she moves before or during labour! it could explain my backache and the fact my bump looks small as she's tucked around the back!
I'm due march 24th. MW says since its my first I'm likely to have LO late.
I'll wait with you all
OH and I are pretty much ready just waiting. I've had no signs of anything happening though. I had my first BH contraction a few days ago, but nothing since!
winterbaby86 - the funny thing is that I think OH is more worried about baby's position than I am! I mean, what will be, will be. But he's obviously been reading up on it 'cos he came home from work yesterday and told me that I'm not allowed to sit down 'cos it won't help baby turn... you can imagine the reaction he got from that little gem! lol!!
I think my cleaning all day and bending down to pick up stuff from the floor etc will be more than enough to keep me active!
He's even worried about me going to visit family next weekend, an hour's drive each way... 'cos that can make baby turn into the wrong direction apparently. Bless him, at least he's trying to help
I am due March 28th. This will be mine and OH's first baby, and we are excited for her arrival, yet it seems so far.
So far, I have been having uterine tightenings several times throughout the day, everyday. I am not sure if baby has dropped but I sure have been getting up at night up to 6 times at most. But that's all I have been feeling. Other than that, I am fine.
Would anyone like to wait with me and keep updating on how each other are doing until something happens??? I thought this might be a good idea for us late March mamas to stick together and kill some boredom as we play the waiting game.
Im due on the 27th! And havent had any symptoms yet... Hoping shes not a April baby. I cant wait another month haha x
Stretch marks - so far so good (except one under me boob which i got near the begining and has now faded) - so bio oil working.
Any of you got the serious nesting urge...but absolutly no effort to do any thing about it??
I lay on my bed dreaming of cooking load of meals to freeze, and organising all the clothes to various sizes, and making everything look lovely...but that is about as far as it gets ....actually getting off the bed to do these things seem way to much!
I was doing great up until a few days ago, when I got sick, and now I'm just fed up. Being this pregnant with a cold has really just shot me down. I'm hoping I feel a little more chipper once I'm feeling better but for now I'm just ready to be done!
Baby dropped sometime last week, so I'm happy about that. Still nothing happening with my cervix though.
