I think most women go between 2-4weeks after stopping the shot !! It is all quiet on the Western front for now though !! how are you all doing , any plans this weekend?xxx
Church this morning and I had a family get together or "baby shower" yesterday. It was pretty fun. I wish you luck with everything. Gosh, I'm so jealous. So I'll be waiting for you as you may deliver before the group. So exciting! Is this your third daughter?
Knowing me I shall defy every odd and carry this baby to term and just be the size of an elephant instead !!! this is my 2nd girl , #1 was a boy

I've got everything to put in the bag but not actually packed it yet.

For the baby, just need some more sleepsuits but got everything else. It's funny how much more relaxed I am this time around, as a first time mum I overthought everything lol.

Some great ideas mrsb! I find out in the next couple of weeks if I get a vbac or not, so I'm waiting to finalise my bag as I'll need different stuff depending. My basics are:

Dressing gown
Night shirt
Cheap undies
Maternity pads
Nursing pads
Nursing bra
Nappies
Wipes
2 sleepsuits and 2 vests
Home outfit for baby and me
Camera, fully charged
Lip balm
Socks
Tens machine

Great idea about the energy foods, I think it really helped contribute to my c section last time that I hadn't eaten for 24 hours and had vomited my last meals back up, plus all my water. I had an epidural in me for the last 12 hours and ate and drank nothing during that time. I read that sweet oatmeal is a good idea, apparently they call it the 'midwives pethidine' so I'll probably find some biscuits or something with it in.

Disposable undies
Hard candy
A robe

Toothbrush etc.
Mouthwash
4 nighties
4 day outfits
shoes
slippers only for hospital that I will throw away once I leave
4 cute socks
My tablet
Camera
SD card
My own personal hospital gowns (2) and matching dress and baby matching outfit

My baby's bag contains:

two cute outfits for pictures

pink and black zebra teddy for her
diapers

3 hats
2 blankets
4 hats

That's all I can think of for now, but I think I covered both our entire bags! I'm pretty sure we are set for everything. Besides her car seat sitting in the room. Oh the anticipation!!!!!

The only other thing that's not packed is my extra cell battery and charger, I will get that at the last minute!!!

I'm fairly certain you all are going to be way more prepared than me. I heard the hospital supplies diapers/wipes/etc. on different list suggestions so wasn't too worried about being prepared in that region.

For baby:
2 layette sets (one newborn, one 0-3)
2 coming home outfits (one newborn, one 0-3)
hat
mittens
2 pair socks
a little pack of wipes
10 diapers: 5 newborn, 5 size 1
baby lotion
swaddle blanket
2 bibs

Me:
nursing pillow
2 nursing tanks
nursing bra
breast pads
pads
lanolin
2 pair of PJ bottoms (one will be worn to come home)
a cotton dress with easy boob and "area" access
robe
flip flops
socks
toiletries
one regular tank
...think that's it?

Also packed the hubs a toothbrush, deodorant, razor, and change of clothes (incase he has to come straight from work).

So... Had my vbac appointment on Thursday and looks like I will get to labour! Hooray! My consultant tried to tell me I had cpd (small pelvis) but as my midwife said, there is no real way of knowing without physically measuring it. Isabelle was back to back so that probably explains why she got stuck as I was pushing her out.

Anyway, on with the bag packing!! Forgot to mention I will be taking some tiny baby clothes as Isabelle only weighed 5lb15 at 39 weeks! All the newborn stuff was ridiculously big on her.
