MrsChezek: Tanks, its been a week of it, wasn't in again until after 7, at least OH came to rescue us with the car. I just keep telling myself, 3 more weeks! Typical you will be off bed resd when your ready!
iPretti: Dont you just hate the gas pains, like we need anything else to content with. You end up thinking 'uh-oh what's this?' then suddenly !! I know you getting frustrated and have been for a while Did you hear back about your gall stones?
KTE thanks for remembering about my gall stones. I saw a surgeon about them and it looks like my surgery date is March 28th. I was orginially told it could be done the same day that I give birth so that I could have one recovery date, but now I'm being told that it has to be 2 weeks after so that the swelling in my uterus could go down. The surgery is too remove my gall bladder. I'm just looking forward to being done with all of this.
personal questions for you ladies... have you still been DTD? OH and i still have been regularly since he always wants it bit i'm finding it uncomfortable, some times i just say no way not tonight, but i've heard from some of my friends they stopped DTD until thy wanted to to get labor started
We have stopped DTD now, just until we want to try it to start labour, but we had already cut back as it just did not feel "good" for me anymore. I think it is partly the cm I have going on, there is a lot of it, and it is not the lubricating type if you know what I mean So it felt weird and I have not been too keen. Now we will save it til this baby has to get out
Ipretti: Aw that is a shame they can't do it at the same time.
heaveneats: We have prob DTD once, we didn't do it much when I was pregnant the first time around either. I'm not a believer that it kicks off labour anyway, I think it's more coincidence but if people are up for it at the time and are desperate for LO to arrive it's not a bad way of trying to bring things on really! LikeI say, personally, not really for me. It's not comfy!
AFM: Got my birthing dress! Hurray! I went to look at some nighties and really did not want them but I found a beach dress from Primark, £4! It's short but covers the modesty and is airy for the top. The plan is to get these hospital bags packed over the next week - starting tomorrow - still have a few bits and bobs to buy which is why it will take the week but I finally have my list!
Heaveneats - we have just started dtd again, but we hadn't done it since bfp up until I had my cervical suture removed as I have to be on pelvic rest until then. I probably wouldn't be that fussed otherwise, but a) I really needed it after that long and b) I'm quite hoping it helps to at least soften my cervix up a bit before the consultant checks if I'll be favourable for an induction around my due date. If I'm not I may opt for and elective section instead as he doesn't want me much past my due date.
As for dtd, we've been doing it all along, some positions are definitely more comfy than others at this point! As for inducing labor, the sperm supposedly softens the cervix, orgasm can kick off contractions....so you dont necessarily need to dtd for that, if its too uncomfortable
Ahh he is soo gorgeous Anna!! Makes me want to meet my little man even more.
Hope your first night with sol at home went ok, stelly!
Hubby and I haven't really dtd that often at all through the pregnancy - we have probably done it a handful of times!! I do miss it but we had a scare with spotting after sex early on which really put me off. Once I've finished work and am ready for him to come though, I think we will try it again!
