Any 38 week ladies want to buddy up for the last 2 weeks?


I'm 38 weeks on Saturday with my first baby. Is there anyone who wants to labour symptom spot until d day?! Here are my symptoms so far:

Nausea
Mild period cramps on and off
Very regular bowel movements
First tri bladder pressure back - need to pee all the time!!
Some vomiting no matter what I eat
Feeling out of it and emotional


Sounds wonderful doesn't it!!?

Anyway i thought this might be a bit of support for us during this scary but exciting time!

Im in! For me its been vomiting and diarrhea last night, nothing really today. Feeling super emotional due to silly midwife from this morning saying that baby was breeched, sent me for a scan to confirm that she isnt! Some braxton hicks, but nothing more than that really.

Cant wait for it to be over now.. sick of waiting and guessing!

I'm due 9th Jan according to LMP and 11th Jan from 12 wk scan.

My symptoms at the moment are:
Period type cramps
Back pain
Lots of pressure down below
Needing the loo every time I stand up
Struggling to sleep at night
Really emotional (could cry at any point today )

Can't believe there are only a few more weeks to go!

I'd love to! 38wks, due on the 11th Jan.

Having cramps on and off, especially after walking any distance.
Generally feeling a bit nauseous, although I haven't been sick yet.
Needing to pee all the time.
Very uncomfy, really struggle to sit in a comfortable position now!

I think we are all well and truly in the same boat! It's so reassuring to see that the symptoms we're getting are so similar. It's so uncomfortable now - mrs mel I can't even sit back on the sofa can you? I have to sit forward.
Christian'smum that 1st tri bladder pressure is such a pain isn't it! I thought I'd seen the back of it and was sleeping through the night for good then - until I had to start using hubs as a lever to turn myself over!

Anyone got swollen feet? Mine look like pods! Midwife said it was normal but they look and feel very tight.

Is anyone going to use labour starting 'methods' such as clary sage, red raspberry leaf tea, etc!! Think I might! And you're supposed to keep moving aren't you? But I couldn't get my act together today, felt so lethargic but managed some housework and bag packing this evening.

Hope we can all support each other and everyone has more easier than not labours!

Yes its a pain having to get up and wee so many times a night ... Oh I am defiantly nesting ... my house is spotless and cleaned my mums on Christmas eve then done my mum-in-laws boxing day I just cant stop!

I'm trying RLT and EPO doesn't seem to be doing very much but hoping it will help during labour.
I have had so many people tell me to keep moving, I usually hardly sit still but now that I have started maternity leave I am struggling to find things to do to keep myself moving!
Anyone got any tips on keeping busy?

Christian'smum: Me too! Are you folding baby clothes and rehanging them over and over or is it just cleaning? I am! Someone I know was cleaning the bathroom floor on hands and knees at 2am while their husband was pleading with them to go to bed, 2 hours later her waters broke!

And lol to the new 2ww chatty!
