Noo, sorry to hear that, but at least you know about it and can plan for baby's safe arrival.
More, I know what you mean about all the pressure to BF, but don't let it get in the way of doing what's best for you and baby. If you want to carry on with it are there any local groups or services you can contact for support? I have a group called little angels and one of the girls calls me regularly to ask how I'm getting on and give me advice about any problems. Something like that could be useful for you or perhaps a breastfeeding group? When I'm ready to start expressing I'll definitely be asking them for support and advice.
Sorry I haven't been on here lately. Began mat leave last week and was very busy doing some work stuff from home and getting some baby stuff done around the house. One of my very good friends also got married this weekend so was away for that.
Still no baby here. At my midwife appointment last week they didn't even check me as Isla is still not engaged. Since then I've been doing lots of squatting, stairs and ball bouncing and I think she may have moved down a little, will find out at my appointment tomorrow.
I am going to try and get caught up with this thread tomorrow and see what has been going on with everyone.
Sorry to be MIA for so long and hope you're all doing well!
Eeek hope it's not too long a wait for you now Mrs Eddie!
Today I am mostly feeling happy This time 2 days ago I was having really bad issues with indigestion / heartburn and (I'm ashamed to say after all this time waiting) was getting a bit fed up with the whole pregnancy thing. But today I feel like my normal self for the first time in a long time Also I got an unexpected day off work as I had a bad 24 hours on-call yesterday (I ended up at the hospital most of the night last night) so after a lie in to catch up on sleep I took myself for a lunch out then some window shopping for baby things (no buying until the 20 weeks scan ). My bump is definitely baby not bloat now and I can tell that people can tell I'm pregnant when I walk down the street which I LOVE!
Although I've obviously been over the moon since we found out I think today is the first day I've actually enjoyed being pregnant yay!
Hope everyone else is ok? How is the BF going morebabies? And Noo how is your BP?
Toms, I've heard that standing on your head helps (seriously)! It helps make more room for baby to move around because it relaxes the uterine ligaments. I've been kneeling on the edge of the couch and putting my elbows on the floor to get a pretty-much inverted posture. I'm trying to get this girl to go head down though. She's been moving lots, but mostly just left to right. Still head up for now.
It's great to hear from you Mrs. Eddie! I've been wondering how you've been doing. I can't believe in two days you'll be full term. Hopefully little Isla will make her appearance soon!!!
Toms all three of mine were back to back and only turned once it came time to push I had horrible back labor with all them but this one was definitely the worst and is what made me give in to the epidural when I did.
Buttercup hopefully she decides to slip herself around soon!
Baby1 glad to hear you're feeling better and finally getting to the point where you can enjoy your pregnancy a little bit! Hopefully it sticks around!
AFM I think pumping hurts my supply big time. I've only been doing it once a day but I feel like it takes a good number of feedings from LO to get it back and I just don't get much out from it. Problem is I can't avoid pumping once school starts for the kids due to the amount of time ill be out. Sports have already started for them so I don't know, we'll see what happens. I'm not going to stress myself out about it too much and will just take it as it comes.
