Possibly. With Shaun they said they try to book it 10 days because it can take a couple of days to get things going. 10 days over was a Monday and that's when I was booked in but I had him on the Sat.

I'm desperate now. I feel like I'm about to have a nervous breakdown. I hate not being able to move or do anything.

Aww Laura, sorry you're having a crappy time! Think they said at my antenatal class they book your induction for 12 days over and that they now offer you a sweep at 40 weeks rather than a week over. We're lothians though, might be different for Lanarkshire?

We're heading home tomorrow. Don't think I've overdone it this weekend but I certainly feel tired! I have proper cankles now for the first time in my pregnancy and my engagement ring is beginning to feel a bit tight. I'm assuming it's not something I really need to contact my midwife about though, right? Xx

Swelling is normal as long as you don't have any other signs of pre-eclampsia.

It could well be 12 days now. I had Shaun 8 years ago lol. They are forever changing things!

They had changed some things from when I had Kaiden and that was only 3 years ago

Stupid phone keeps double posting! I'll go look up the other symptoms. I haven't felt faint or anything like that that I would associate with pre-e though so think I should be ok xx

Morning ladies. Well I looked up preeclampsia symptoms and am now feeling a bit stressed about it! Most of saturday and yesterday I've had a pain just below my right ribs which I thought was just James' feet but apparently it's quite a common symptom! That and tiny spots in front of my eyes once or twice this weekend and the swelling in my hands and feet now has me worried. We won't be home til about 4pm today which I think may be too late to go see mw but I think I might phone them first thing tomorrow morning. xx

Can you not phone triage at your hospital or mw and arrange to see them as soon as you get back? Might be worth finding an NHS clinic where u are and getting BP taken.

We're just about to leave Nottingham now. I might give my mw a call on the way back and see if I can go in when we get home. I'm probably overreacting but I just saw the symptoms andnpanicked slightly. Been awake since half six stressing about it xx

Hey ladies, sorry i wasn't on at all yesterday. my phone was being gay when i look at one thread lol.

Paige is doing great hun. She's a little DQ(drama queen) at nights lol but sleeps like a angel through the day. think i need to try and keep her away somehow later on and try get her into a pattern of sleeping better through the night. Its not been to bad the past few days its trying to get her down after she wakes around 9/10 lol took my nearly 4 hours just to get her to settle back down she has a high pitch cry to .. So i think this calls for a bath tonight then milk instead of milk then bath haha.

Yeah her cord fell off i notice after the day that there was dry blood on her belly button and there was some on the nappy lol just need to give it a good clean.

I keep getting loads of gifts form people i hate opening them up in front of everyone haha cause they all look at you. but its all from ryans side. I feel kind of like there getting a bit over the top just little fair do's its there first granchild well first baby in that family but sometimes i just which they wouldnt keep planning to pop up for the hour or to and just give me and her dad a few days to our selves to get the adjust of it. I never seen my mum since the day before i cam home until sunday because i couldnt go far and i only stayed at mums like 2 hours yesterday because i had to wait for midwife and then ryan taking ages going for a shower. plus his mum wanted us down little earlier.

Then his little brother kept wanting to hold her. stroke her nose, give her the dummy. I really just wanted to say stop it and take her home lol

sorry just having a little rant of i guess i just thought that once we got home we'd have the first week to our selves for bonding and whatever before any member of family came to see us as i just had an op and wasnt up to anyone coming. my family respected this i just wish his done the same.

Aaaaaah! apart from that everything is ok. I need to to back to doctors at 3pm for my rubella shot which i better get this time since the midwife on friday took the letter up to there lol

register Paige tomorrow so ryan mums is going to watch her while we go . I could of ask my mum but she has Ammie and a house full.

Ohh my scar is looking better to midwife yesterday took of my badge with me making some random faces lol. she's checking it again today to make sure defo no leaking if so they she'll need to take a swab of it . but i dont think its leaking. Just need to take it easy little bit more so ryan will need to step up .

Sorry for this one sided rant post girls. I hope your all well and BB i hope your getting some sleep lol xxx
