M was transverse util 36 weeks I think - may not be remembering right tho - then she turned back to back for labour - well I was induced at 42+2 so lord knows when she would have come out naturally lol!
I read a lot about ecv and decided I wouldnt have it but I know people who have and its been ok - defo worth trying the inversions!
tbh Id chose a c section if I could - I was given the option due to Ms birth but dh cant take paternity leave (self employed) and I dont have anyone who could help me out really so its not an option - it took me a good 8 weeks to recover from M's birth (a v rushed forceps delivery) and all my friends who had sections were up and about waaaaay before me - I didnt get skin to skin or anything like that but I dont think it made any difference with me and M bonding
Thanks ladies. I know the most important thing is that baby arrives safely - I must sound like a spoilt brat on here sometimes haha!! "mew mew I want a girl" "mew mew I don't want a C section" !! Crikey moses (as Stan would say!), I need to get a grip!
It always seems to me that other people's pregnancies go faster than my own. I think the last month has gone pretty fast though, and it's weird to think I only have about 6 weeks and that includes Xmas and New Year so it should go pretty fast. I'm getting pretty big now, although I haven't put much weight on in the last few weeks. My weight gain is still 2lbs short of 2 stone... I gained 2.5 stone with Fin and was heavier to start with... I think that gives me license to completely stuff my face over Xmas!! For the baby's sake, obviously!
Has everyone got names for their new babies yet? Our new little man will be called Dexter. It's been very different to my 1st pregnancy when we didn't even find out the sex. Fin hugs my tummy and says baby Dexter, and talks about his baby brother - very cute
Oh everything- can't help you there, but i hope he positions himself right.
& i think most will understand why you don't want a Csection, not good trying to recover with a new baby and a toddler....so fingers crossed it goes well for you!
Well i got the dopler and thought i would give it a go....and lo and behold i found the heart beat straight away! (Star, its the same one you mentioned)...but ive promised myself not to use it constantly as i'll drive myself nuts, so maybe once a week or less even. It was nice to hear again tho
and as far as names go i've got a girl's name i like, but no boys at present! and the girls name needs a middle name and i can't think of anything!
We don't have a name for our baby blue yet. We've talked about a few and there's one in particular I really like and although DH doesn't dislike it he isn't ready to commit to it yet. It's been that way with all the names I've suggested so far so I think its his turn to come up with something now...
Rowan I'm with you there, it seems all of our pregnancies are flying by - even my own! I can't believe I'm 26 weeks already. I've been counting down to my maternity leave and I only have 20 days left to work after today and then I'm off (I work part time). Can't wait
Talking of cant wait I'm going for my 4D scan tomorrow night. I had one with Maia and it was awesome. All the little facial expressions she did as a newborn she was already doing in the womb when I had my scan. It's so exciting to see you really do have a little person in there waiting to come out
Chelli I think you do right not to get too addicted to the Doppler. Enjoy it once or twice per week when you do have a listen. It's great to have in for reassurance as well if you're having a bit of a worried day x
Ooh that's great news Starlight, I just came on to ask how your scan went and found your post... I'm looking forward to seeing the pic
My little man has been bouncing around from one hip to the other and down into the middle all night again! It's lovely to feel him being so active, and I got a great video of him wriggling around while X Factor was on... I think he was dancing
Hi ladies, sorry I've been quiet for the last few days. I have an early scan on Tue (will be 8+1) and am terrified! Trying to keep busy and keep my mind off it. I also have my first proper scan date which is 7th Jan (will be 13 weeks). I will be on if we see our baby on Tuesday, but I know I won't be able to relax fully until after the 13 week scan.
In the meantime, am loving reading about all your little wriggling bubbas! Chelli, I can't wait to find out what you're having, surely not another boy?! I am convinced mine will be a boy, don't know why. I can't believe we were patient enough not to find out last time. I am desperate to know this time around!
