Hi Penny83! Welcome. I agree with the nap thing, infact I got home from work today at 3pm and went straight to bed Iv just woke up lol.
So heres a thing Iv been wondering about... why are women who are trying to bring labour on told to DTD drink pinapple juice go for a long walk etc? Iv been doing these things all through-out my pregancy and (thankfully) it hasn't produced a baby... so are they truely old wives tales told to make us feel like we have some control over when our babies are comming, or does doing these sort of things have a different affect on our bodies/babies after a certain point in our pregnancy?
Hope everyone is having a good day today x
I think yr body will only go into labour when it's ready. Apparently you have to dtd like 8 times in 20 hours to bring on labour and I can't see anyone after 38 weeks wanting to do that x

That's so cute what your daughter asked! I'm seeing my OB tomorrow.
I have only seen a mw once and my OB once so far. Not had a GTT test or anything! I feel a bit abandoned! Does anyone else feel like that?! X

Oh my goodness rooster, you've only had 2 appts so far? I totally understand why you might be feeling abandoned! I have seen my mw at least 6 times, or maybe 7?

Snoopchick, how cute of your DD! Glad scan went well!

And as far as the inducing of labor, I read that all of those techniques only work once the body is "ready" hormonally to give birth. Specifically, that the receptors in the womans body which respond to the chemical in sperm which helps start labor are "swtiched off" until the baby and the mother's body are ready so it can't do anything. Then, once the baby is ready to be born, the receptors will "switch on" so to speak and you can in fact induce. If that makes sense?!

Im glad your scan went well Snoopchick, your daughter sounds like shes really excited to be a big sister!
I knew all that stuff didn't make sense I guess they just come when they're ready! Is time starting to drag for anyone else? I thought after xmas time would fly by and LO would be here before we knew it but so far this seems like the longest part, I think I need something to look forward to between now and my due date to hurry things up a little lol.
Have a good day ladies x

Snap Iv got midwife on the 19th, health visitor on the 26th and social worker on March 14th (My dad and my step-mother are trying to adoptand apparently the SW needs to talk to all his kids as part of the consideration process) OH takes his driving test on March 25th (Im sure I get more nervous about this than he does) then hopefully a baby on April 20th. Then the excitement begins OH and I are planning on going out as a family most w/e to all the places we havent had a chance to go to together because Iv been working, i.e the zoo, aquarium, lands end etc then weve got tickets to see Rihanna in June which is another thing that Im counting down the weeks too lol

Glad I not the only one! X

Does anyone else have a 'feeling'they might go early or overdue? I know that know one ever knows for certain (unless yr having a planned c.section/induction) I just have a feeling I will have this baby before my due date...or maybe it's just wishful thinking! X

Time is still flying by for me! But that's because life is insanely busy right now!! My sister is getting married on March 2nd as well (and I'm her Maid of Honour!), so we have a big family event coming up too before baby is born, so there's just lots going on.

You've got Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day and Easter? Although I know not everyone celebrates all of those. Hopefully time picks up for you a little bit. You could always plan something yourself in a months time or something that you're looking forward to? A pre-natal massage, or a weekend away with OH, maybe a big girls night in with movies and munchies? Just something fun that will happen sooner to help break up the wait.
