Hi all, sorry I've been AWOL! I've been reading on my phone and not really had the chance or opportunity to post. I've had terrible indigestion. I didn't even know that was what it was at first! Everything tastes awful at the moment, and I have a constant burning sensation in my mouth (yuck!)
I've finally been discharged from consultant care! Woop! My blood pressure has dropped and they're happy for me to be seen by just the community midwife unless anything serious happens (fx it doesn't) between now and when lo arrives! Soo happy! I am measuring slightly big though, so that's got me slightly worried (he/she will have have to come out somehow and thanks to an anti natal class I'm now petrified!)
Jamie and Harley, how you getting on with your little ones? All ready for the big Christmas?
Janey and missx how you doing in your pregnancy?
Wrighty not long now missy!!! How have you gotten on with consultant? What's the plan for you? Really excited and can't wait for you to have your little princess!
Susie, hope all your Christmas preparations are going well and your enjoying your family time as a mummy!
Ive also been put back to just being midwife led care for the last few weeks of pregnancy. Had scan on Tuesday and she still looks like a she and she is measuring 2 weeks ahead with estimated weight of about 7lb 6oz at 36+4 lol if i get to 40 wks they estimate her to be close to 10lb. They are letting me go full term and im booked to be induced on 10th Jan if she hasnt arrived by then. See my midwife a week on Monday and will be asking if i can have 2 sweeps before im due to be induced if shes not showing any signs of making her own way out. GD still under control and they are happy for me to continue as i am and dont want to see me again now. Got to keepa close eye on her movements and anything that worries me im to go straight to the ward for a check. If they are unable to do induction on the 10th due to no beds i will get daily monitoring where i go in for an hour or 2 and they stick me on a monitor to check peanut is ok until they have a bed for me
I know what the heartburn is like its awful im getting it alot aswell
Hey ladies, how are u all.
Yay for you both being back on midwifery led, it takes so much pressure and stress from you IMO .
Indegestion and heatburn are the worst! For about the last 6 weeks I could eat properly! Don't worry about having big babies, I said my labour was awful and I still feel like I won't do it again but I wasn't properly monitored and felt fobbed off, use your instincts and insist on treatment/drugs if needed! And don't forget I was au naturel so it probably felt a lot worse for me. I can't say being induced is worse than going on your own because I don't have anything to compare with.
Let's just hope your lo's are on there best behaviour!'
My tilly was 6 weeks old yesterday!! I can't believe it the time has flew, I no it's hard but try not to wish the time away. I did it and now it's just zapped straight before my eyes!
Well I am off out tonight with the girls for the first time :/ maybe a ten o'clock bedtime? Who knows ha!!
Hope your all well and are nearly prepared for Christmas! I can't wait now! First time in years!!! Xx
We had a lovely day, I did dinner for my husband and my parents (I know I'm mad, but it's our first year in this house and we'd been trying to buy it for about 2years, but couldn't sell our flat, so I really wanted to celebrate!). Baby has been a bit unsettled, we think he had a bit of a tummy upset . He's getting his tongue tie cut on 7th jan, not looking forward to that, but hopefully he will be able to latch on then. I've been expressing for the past few weeks which is quite time consuming!
As Jamie says time flies, Alex will be 4 weeks tomorrow, I can't believe it! He put 14oz on last week, he's getting massive .
I spent mine in hospital. Annabelle was born Yesterday 1/1/14 at 10:10am weighing 7lb 2 and 1/2 oz she's a cutie and will post my experience very soon only got home today after being in hospital since 30th even spent my birthday (31st) in hospital :/ lol
Oh wow! I've missed loads since Christmas, all I've done is sleep and eat!
Firstly, I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and new year! Meant to post on this thread too before Christmas, but totally forgot (my brain keeps forgetting things lately!)
Wrighty massive congratulations!!! I'm so pleased for you! What are the odds you both being born so close together!
Jamie good luck with Tilly's needles, I'm sure it'll be fine! It'll probably hurt you more than her!
Harley, sounds like an awesome Christmas, I went to the in laws after church, had communion wine and I swear I felt rather drunk! Hubby laughed at me throughout the rest of the service! Your very brave though taking on all that cooking, I couldn't cope (although I burn beans on toast - hubby is the chef in our house!)
Janey how you doing?
Has anyone heard from sugar butties?
As for me, plodding along. Nursery is virtually done, furniture arrives next week. I've only got three weeks left in work so defiantly feels real and 5 weeks till due date! I went round the women's to have all a look at the maternity wars, delivery suite etc and whilst this should have calmed me down, it's just put me in a panic!
Sorry for quick post, all I seem to be doing lately is sleep!
