Uuurgh, poor you with OC as well as SPD!!! That really sucks having either is horrendous but both must be unbearable!!!! I've been a bit concerned about OC myself as for the last 4 days or so I had horrible itching on my hands & then 1/2 way up my arms, and on my shins/calves. I was going to go to the doctor this morning just to be safe but now today it seems to have calmed right down so i didnt go in the end... Can it ever go away & come back?
Aaaah, that's great that you've been assured you won't be stuck on the bed! For me it was like that unfortunately... Stuck there being monitored most of the time after being induced, then when I went up to delivery I was told point blank that it would be continuous monitoring until baby was born & that was before I even went on the drip to speed up labour that had stopped progressing... So that's why it was so rubbish for me. But yeah, as they've told you you're not going to be in that situation that's great & you'll be fine :-) x

I would get a blood test just to check hun you never know! I wouldn't say my itching was really bad when I was tested but my levels were through the roof! They've all come down now with medication though. As far as I know once you get OC that's it you've got it iykwim? As I said before though go and get a blood year just incase x

Lovely, hope the next 2 hours fly by! I hated the waiting about for my GTT, can you not go home and come back? I had mine done at the hospital and was allowed to do that if I wished.

I'm just off the DAU for a check up, it's probably nothing but they woul like me to get checked anyway x

hi, i too have same due date- 4th may.. hope our babies come by 38th week.. gud luck
Oooohhh, another 4th May-er! I'm hoping we're both that lucky, and baby comes as soon as they reach term!

I've been feeling so tired lately, but put it down to pregnancy...found out today from a blood test last week I'm anaemic, so hopefully now I'm on iron tablets things will perk up a bit! I'm not fancying the idea of worse constipation though, it can't be any worse than it is right now!x

Thought I'd share with you lovely ladies a couple of pics from my 4D yesterday...one of them melts my heart, because he started making a crying face! Definitely set off my motherly instinct of wanting to give him a cuddle and make sure he was ok!x
he is so cute!! i love ur baby... looking at ur scan i too imagined how my baby might be inside.. i went for movie yesterday and the baby was getting super-excited with the musical sounds and action sequences.. thanks for sharing the pics..

I'm due May 4th, this is my first, Oh second I have a feeling he's gunna come early though. At my last midwife appointment he was head down & everything was fine, my blood pressure had even dropped! So fingers crossed it doesn't hike up near the end, my bloods came back as all good too.
Been having lots of lower back/hip ache this week.
Got my next midwife app in a couple of weeks, last trip to the cinema before i get too big at the end of march and then hospital tour on the 2nd april trying to keep busy so the weeks don't drag

My 2 hour GTT was the start of my minor SPD I'm sure! I was SO sore after 2 hours in an uncomfortable chair! I nearly fell over when I stood up

It was *lovely* knowing it was all clear. No reason to be smug, but I was anyway!

Well there was one comfy chair and when it became free I got straight in it, in fact I nearly feel asleep! It all seemed to go ok just got to wait a couple of days for the results.
