cherry - sounds like you had a half decent sleep hun Lol yeah i think when people watch OBEM they think all midwives are like that.. but the sad truth is they are not all lovely You get the odd thorn in the works.. but i think its the same with any proffesion.

Cottleston- woot for a long lie whats the secret lol.. id love seth to sleep that long! poor little Toby, not nice when they are ill.. haha i got a clear picture of the snot covered face in my head though.. thats happened to seth a few times. I always think how the hell did you manage to sleep ok with that all crusted on your face.. cant be comfy.
I was really quite peeved off that she kept on about it hun. I didnt mind her asking in the first place.. but once id said yes he is having speech therapy she should have dropped it. For all she knew he could have a condition or disability! In fact we want to get him checked for Autism.. which i need to speak to his speech therapist about. He has a few markers for it and has recently started having to touch walls etc as we walk anywhere. gets all flustered if we dont let him, so its something i want to get looked into. xx

Dont let the shitty ones upset you hun. Just kindly point out that their opinions are nlt what your there for.

Just been to have my anti d, and saw a lovley midwife :-D injection hurt like a bitch though, hubbys face was a picture lol.

Saw the cord and placenta donation people. And got all signed up and consent given :-D

A lot of women seem to have the wrong idea about this donation. Its a shame really, if they researched what it is, they could save someone's life.

oh wow Jenny! That is such a nice thing to do!! Can you have delayed cord clamping if you are donating it though?
our hospital dont offer that kind of thing otherwise it would probably be something i would look into.
Glad you got a lovely midwife! Those injections sound horrid though, how many do you have to have? xxx

Its not the hospital that do it hun, its an external charity. I can get some details if people are interested?

I dont know about it with reguards to delayed cord clamping. Id rather them take baby right away, as Freya had problems maintaining her oxygen levels born at 39 weeks vis section.

Imo babies have been born for thousands of years without delayed cord clamping, so its not a big deal for me. and as I have a rare blood type it feels even more the right thing to do.

The woman I spoke to there told me people would be amazed how many others will take a donation, to help save their own lives, but refuse to help back in the way of blood/organ donations. Makes me quite angry!


I only need the one jab before baby is born, unless I have a fall or trauma to the stomach.

ah i see. Be no good for me as i really really want delayed cord clamping. I watched a video earlier about just how much blood is still in the placenta (1/3 of babies blood) so i want minimum of 2 minutes delay which my midwife told me they will probably do no problem But I think its all part of my "I want a perfect birth" this time round since it went to badly first time round.

My sister has just signed herself and her kids up for organ donation. But i dont know if i could do it.. the last thing id be thinking of if my children died (god forbid) is letting someone wisk them off to cut them up before iv got to spend time with them. I just dont think i could do it. If there was a way of getting to spend time with them before they need to be taken then it would be something i could do. Which i know is really bad of me.. but i dont think id be thinking of helping others if i had to go through that kind of tragedy. I do give blood though (well when my body decides to give out.. hehe last time it kept stopping and starting) , and my children will be brought up to give blood.

Thats not so bad only needing one jab fingers crossed you never fall or anything hun xxx

aw poop... apparently the nhs says they dont do cord blood donations from twins because the placenta is smaller so theres less blood and cant be justified

That's a shame cottlestonPie, maybe next time if you have any more babies one day.

Myself and hubby are organ donors. Iv not thought about the kids being donors. It's something il consider if I ever need to, I can't deal with thinking about it.

Hubby gives blood every 4 months. He is A+. Im B-, but giving blood for me is hard, as my veins are crap.

Il give details here anyway, incase anyone wants to have a look.

I think its a great idea to delay clamping the cord. Ive seen that donation thing but never knew what it was lol still but in the middle about it. Ill just wait and see what happens when i go into labor or think about it while im off through march.

Well im now down to 5 days left of work today was going really well but because the kids are off and its friday it was mayhem i started to feel off around 2.30 and i had only started at 1. i when to get a drink and take paracetamol but when i got to my bag i found none so i had a quick drink of orange juice before heading back down stairs. Think i had bit of trapped wind but at times i felt like i needed number sorry for info.

My bump started to tighten up around 3.30 and it had been like that until i got home was having period pains to was that bad i could have cried. Anyways i got home went to loo and only needed a pee lol sat on the couch since and it seems like i just had some trapped gas now. what a pain eh lol. so glad ive only got 5 days left now.she came alive once i got this hot bottle resting on me lol

Hope every one else is doing ok today xx

ah cant do it in my hospital anyway. I cant believe it can only be done in only a couple hospitals. Its like donating bone marrow.. i looks into that too and would have to travel to london

So far i have only given blood once. before that where i lived they didnt do it anywhere near me. And we only just found out we can do it locally just before i found out i was pregnant. but as soon as i can afterwards i will be back at the donor sessions.. can you donate when breast feeding? Or how long after birth can you start if you formula feed?

Cherry - sorry to hear your getting sore again hun. Sounds like your getting a real bad dose of built up trapped wind I didnt realise the kids were off school today. Woo for only 5 days left at work.. that must be so exciting !!
