I was bothered about the size but now I just feel so awful I'm less bothered and just want to have it. Still not contractions, really bad tightenings and feeling really sick and weak. I feel terrible because I can't play with DD as I feel so bad. Thankfully my parents and DH are all here. I'm feeling what I can only describe as swollen and painful down below and around my pelvis. Surely it can't be like this much longer before I go into labour?!

Lpjkp have you tried a warm bath with a few drops of Lavender or Tea Tree oil? I read it helps it to heal and I've used Lavender before and it's amazing?

Ohhh I havent tried that...I'm trying to get by with warm salt baths, and putting my maternity pads in the freezer...I really thought labour is the worst of the pain, but the after-labour has kicked my ass the most!

If you google it there is loads about how good it is post birth, only needs 5-7 drops to a bath. Hope it helps, I'm dreading the post birth. I've already got a new bottle of Lavender and some arnica granules to take ready! Hope it eases soon, love the Avatar xx

Oh I also read you can put a few oil drops on your pads.

Mix the essential oil with some salts or baking powder so they dissolve in the bath other wise they will just sit on top. Also keep drinking loads of water. Arnica will also help healing

Oh LP. I'm sorry you're suffering so much. Did you have to have a lot of stitches? Have you posted your birth story anywhere? Did I miss it?

I had tons (took 90 minutes) but luckily (?!) mine are inside mostly so wee doesn't really get on them. I'm scared what sex is going to be like though.

MM - don't worry about size. I was measuring 43 at 38 when I was in labour. Scan the week before she arrived growth scan had her at 7lb14 with a head size over the 95th line - yet a week layer she arrived 7lb 8oz and an exactly average head!

LP - if its really bad get it checked out just to be on the safe side re:infection. I got one and it was incredibly painful.

BH have slowed and almost stopped. More teasing for me then! Although I have to believe that they are doing something and that it can't be too long!
