Hi everyone. Hope you are all feeling better (especially Wendy/ Pebbie1!). I was really excited on Monday - actually had some energy so went to the gym for a gentle workout (including spending quite a lot of time sat down with a mag doing pelvic floor exercises) but then Tues/ Wed and today am so knackered that I want to sleep 24/7. What a con!

It is nice to see so many new names (mummyclo I recognise from first tri)

I am Julie-Ann, 34 and live in Dorset. Got a 13 year old son (Garion) and OH is Simon (or Goose!). It is his first child and he is very excited!

BabyB2 - that sounds amazing! You are going to have loads of pics to show us. I am slightly envious!

RAspberry leaf tea. We will need to have a thread during first tri for helps and tips on labour. I can't wait!!!

Are you all excited about giving birth? Or worried about the pain?

Hi Julie-Ann!
Great to see you here in second tri
How lovely that your oh is so excited! Amazing times.

I'm really looking forward to giving birth again. It was full on and painful but I felt so amazingly strong! I loved that feeling so yeah, can't wait. Lets hope I can do it without pre eclampsia this time

Raspberry leaf tea ROCKS! It doesn't induce labour or anything, it actually makes you dilate quicker (hence I went from 2 to 8 cm in half an hour). I drank 1 cup a day from 34 weeks and will absolutely be doing that again this time around!

Wow that's amazing! Home birth sounds great and just nice to be in the comfort of your own home. I really disliked being in the hospital sharing a room with 5 other women and 6 other crying babies. Kept me up all night! I can only have hospital birth as I'm high risk but I'm really hoping for a water birth

Its the heat that kept me awake when I had other 2, They just dont let you open a window or anything! I would like the older kids to meet baby brother/sister asap aswel and not have to wait to visit the next day at hospital or something as they are sooo excited already. Only worry I have is running out of gas and air x
A water birth sounds great this is my 2nd choice if I have to go into hosp x

Hi I'm Fee and live in Somerset not far from Bristol. I'm 25 and OH is 29. This will be our second child as we already have a gorgeous girl who is 3.5yrs and very excited.

I always though Raspberry tea was to help induce labour. Never had any last time but going to try this time. I'm also really excited about giving birth, mine went so well last time. I had one midwife (male! Although at that point you don't care) and although painful he made a massage oil, lights really low, relaxing music. So praying it'll be similar this time. Fair play having a home birth, would be great but I'm sure my MIL would just walk in or something really inappriate.

Is there a May babies thing for our signature?? Noticed few other months do.
