Emi - Sorry about having unwanted people asking to be in the delivery room! That is shockingly inappropriate to me! Definitely tell them no without any guilt, but I know it is stressful knowing you are hurting someone's feelings. They really shouldn't be putting you in that position in the first place!

I am sort of stressed about visitors in the hospital afterwards too. But give yourself the time you need before you accept visitors. This is YOUR labour and delivery and YOUR time with your baby. You don't even have to tell them your baby has been born until several hours afterwards. Making sure baby is fed, you are showered and comfortable, and you and DH have had sufficient time alone with your baby will allow you to feel more relaxed about the visitors you're not too thrilled about.

WanaBaba - So sorry about your stressful situation. I know that it is definitely not ideal that your LO be left with someone she isn't super familiar with yet, but I also know one way or the other, SOMEONE has to watch her and it's important that you have your hubby with you. Do you think there's a way that you could arrange a few playdates with your friend for your LO to get used to her...and maybe even try leaving her with your friend for a couple hours at a time in the next couple months until she gets a lot more comfortable with her?
Haha I do this too! But usually counting down so I'll say I have 7 weeks left then the next day it'll be 6 weeks and a bit haha so by time I get to six weeks I'll feel like I've already been there for ages haha.

We do see my friend around once a week so my dd is familiar with her and seems to really like her, if she hadn't started going through this 'stage' lately I'd be more than happy to leave her with her knowing she would be fine but for some unknown reason LO has decided she doesn't want to be away from me even for school which she usually loves. (Starting to wonder if it could actually have something to do with baby coming soon) great idea about leaving her with her a couple times before hand so at least it won't be the first time! Will have to have a chat with my friend and sort something out my only worry is what if these couple of 'practice' times don't go too well!

I have one close friend here, have only been here six months so not made that many friends yet, who I could leave dd with, she has offered infact but I know my LO will probably spend the whole time upset and asking for me as she seems to be going through a clingy stage at the minute, crying every day at nursery etc, not wanting to be away from me. So I would spend the whole time worrying about her and feeling awful for leaving her she's very close to mil so I know she'd be perfectly happy staying with her. such a tricky situation as I'm also gonna feel bad about the new baby being left on her own while I'm being fixed up if hubby is not there. I don't know what to do for the best.
Ugh I'm so sorry! That is so frustrating... Could your friend bring DD to the hospital and play with her in the waiting room so that OH can be with you, and DD not be too far away either?
I never thought of this actually, I will have to look into it and find out if there is a playroom and if the hospital would allow it. Thankyou for the suggestion
Your welcome! I know my hospital has a little play area for kids in the maternity ward, I hope yours does too!

I went camping last night with my friends and OH. I am completely sore today but it was worth it and I am proud of myself for going!! Oh man do I feel like I got hit by a truck today lol. My friend let me use her twin air mattress but she blew it up and it was not completely full so I was nervous I was going to be very uncomfortable. Luckily I actually slept really good but I did have to get up to pee 3 times and wake OH up to help me climb over rocks and whatnot to find a spot to pee. Other than that though it was a lot of fun! My recommendations for any pregnant ladies wanting to camp (hard mode-no bathrooms, ect) is have an air mattress, make sure your tent is on level ground (ours wasnt lol), and find a place to pee very close to your tent before it gets dark.

You are very brave! Haha! Don't think I could do it, just the fact I get up about ten times a night to pee would put me off haha. Glad you enjoyed it!

Well it's been confirmed today that the in-laws definitely won't be coming over so my friend has kindly agreed to have my dd while I go in to have section. She has assured me she will ring dh if LO gets too upset or anything and that they'll be fine! But I still can't help but worry. Just feeling so upset that this has happened as I was so relieved to know that LO would be with her grandma who she adores having a great time and wouldn't have to worry at all about her and could just relax but I just know that now I will be worrying about my dd because I'm a worrier and I just can't help it!

Well I have just got back from the midwife and everything is good but baby is back to back (no wonder I have had such a bad back!) and transverse and I'm also measuring nearly 2wks a head. My midwife appointments are now every 2 weeks x
