I haven't got my notes too hand but yes by now they are supposed to have spoken to us at least once, if not two or 3 times about breast feeding.
I definitely feel there is no "personal" touch with my mid wife, I'm just another women on her list as it were...
Welcome Mrs Doddy!
I think I spoke to soon with my not suffering because as of today, my back is killing me. Really achey, finding it hard to just walk around, having to go really slow. This is not good when I've a 5 bed house to re decorate!
I hope you don't mind me joining you ladies! I'm due 24th March but will be having an elective c-section at around 39 weeks x
I've been having lots of indigestion, and heart burn!! Also feel like a frail old lady as i've got SPD and excruciating back pain. It's especially worse when i've been sitting down, and go to a standing position. I feel like all i do is moan about how much pain i'm in. My poor hubby must be fed up of constantly hearing it!!
This has been the best pregnancy i've had so far believe it or not, my others I was constantly in and out of hospital with problems. I've actually enjoyed the pregnancy so far but to be honest, i'm about ready to be done now. I'm struggling to even put my own socks and shoes on as bump gets in the way and the constant pain is driving me nuts. Ahhh, feels so nice to have a little moan!! haha x
Anyone else feel like they can hardly eat without feeling like bursting? I swear my stomach is about half as capable now. :P Anyone drinking RLT? My midwife started me on that combined with nettle tea. Notice an increase in braxton hicks after drinking it. I drank RLT with my first but not as much as is recommended so I can't say it made much of a difference. Any home birthers out there?
Well my growth scan went well shes weighing 2lb 13oz atm and predicted birtg weight is 8 lb 11oz so not as big as they were making out! Got my glucose test on thursday and another scan on the 24th of january... also have a private 4d scan on 13th of jan as a anniversary present to OH and I
Ooh also got her pram today was well chuffed at it as was in the 'boxing day sale' in mothercare
I was so unprepared for breast feeding with DS and he wouldn't latch so I gave up. I felt horrible, I had this tiny baby who hadn't properly eaten for 24 hours and I was receiving no help as they were short staffed at the hospital. Mind you this will be 7 years ago come March, but it sounds like we're suppose to be natural pro's on it still. There is still time though.
Anyone still unprepared for their baby? I'm suppose to be moving soon, so I really have nothing done, but I'm hoping to move next month, February at a push as long as I can find a house I want. Right now there is nothing, but I'm guessing no one wants to move at Christmas.
Hi ya'll I am a bit further than most of you, I am due on the 11th of March so I will be 30 weeks tomorrow. I feel like I am not really able to relate to a lot of the stuff in this tri yet though as most of it is labor watching! This is my third and final LO and its a little girl after 2 boys. This week I have been having a lot of hip pain due to her dropping down already, my back is also killing me. I can't sleep due to not being able to find a comfortable position or being able to breathe. I have all the big items bought just have yet to put them together and clean the bedroom out (she will be sharing with my 3 year old for a while). I plan to do that New Years day since I will be off work. Have also gotten a lot of clothes, mostly 0-3 and 3 months. Need more 3-6 month stuff but figure I have time for that. I had to completely buy everything new since this is the first girl but I love buying girly stuff! I do have her hospital bag packed though! Just not mine
Congrats everyone! Since both of our children are fully grown we had to rebuy everything.. and in a quantity of 2x everything hah. We've asked for no shower because we have bought way more than we will ever need and use ... But I heard through the grapevine that there is 1 possibly 2 suprise showers in the works.. Not sure what I will do with all of it if that is the case.
We got the city jogger double stroller and love it We bought the Britax B seats for the travel system to go with it but it adapts to most seats anyway. We had the nursery all set up till I decided I wanted to repaint it again because I didn't like the color so its a construction zone right now. Hopefully it will done being painted today and I can start putting it back together! There is some stenciling though that I want to do so that will happen later once these coats are dry.
