Good luck with your GTT test lovely!x

we are slowly starting to think about putting our hospital bag together mrs Clark, though the thought of doing it terrifies me! Hubby is convinced that baby will make an early appearance though :S x

Hey, April 25th for me, although I'm convinced i'll go overdue again. DS was born at 42 weeks after I was induced - he was just waaaay too comfy in there. Pregnancy has not been good with bad SPD that's had me on crutches for weeks now, and unbelievable exhaustion... So yeah, I'll be glad when baby is here!!!! It's been a real struggle!
Not started on maternity bag yet, but I have all my lists from last time so shouldn't be too bad! And not got a huge amount to buy for baby as we still have everything from DS...

I suffer with really bad SPD too Caroline that's why I'm being induced at 38 weeks. I feel ya on the exhaustion too! Everything is so much harder and more tiresome with SPD! Fingers crossed you don't go overdue! I don't think I could cope going overdue this time, I can barely walk as it is

I haven't even started my hospital bag!! Oops! I have sorted babys bag though so it's just mine to sort and pack, I might get on with that tomorrow actually. I can't remember what I need on it as I haven't packed one properly since DD x

Hey misummymoo! What made them decide to induce then? Did you request it? Is this the first time you had spd? I had it last time too and being induced was my worst nightmare & I'm desperately hoping I'll be able to avoid it this time... Obviously spd effects everyone differently, but for me, being stuck on my back in bed being monitored was the worst thing for my spd - sooo painful. Those people who said i wouldnt notice the spd pain once in labour were so wrong - i just had two lots of pain to cope with, haha!!! So yeah, this time I'm determined to avoid induction & get the water birth I dreamed about last time... Being in water is the only time it doesn't hurt - especially in the amazing warm hydrotherapy pool I get to go in each week!!!! Lol
Aaaargh, sorry, I hope that didn't sound like I was saying you shouldn't be induced or anything!!!! Just that for me personally it would be the worst option!!! Presumably for you it's the best, so best of luck to you & hope it goes well :-)

I was actually being induced because at 37 weeks because I have obstetric cholestasis. However today the consultant said he doesn't want to treat me as an obs chol patient as it was drug induced (it was antibiotics that caused me to get the condition) but he said they would induce me at 38 weeks for the SPD.

Before all these problems I was adamant I was having a homebirth again. Once I was diagnosed with OC I was told there was no way I could have a HB and I WOULD be indu ex before 38 weeks. I've came round to that idea now. I was like you and petrified of being induced for fear of being strapped to the bed etc but I talked to a MW who explained what would happen to me and none of it involved being strapped to a bed with a drip which has put me a lot more at ease.

I think ill be glad of the induction as I have been in so much pain wit the SPD this time. I had it last time but nowhere near as bad as this. I really don't think I could manage a homebirth this time to be totally honest! I think I may make an appointment with the midwife to possibly go through my options but I really don't think I could cope with going over due. I had to use a wheelchair today the SPD is that bad x
