I only grabbed mine cus it was like 3 in primark sale and I didn't have a bag big enough it was a nightmare when I was in a couple times early on with sickness I had about 5 little bags with me lol so I thought I'd grab one when I saw them.

What is everyone craving this time around? I'm not really having strong ones this time, only for the smell of flash bleach recently which is a sign of getting anaemic for me. My bloods are being checked tomorrow though.

I haven't had any really specific cravings just wanting sweet stuff like cakes and pastries! I thought I wasn't really putting weight on so I've been over indulging!

I'm having a really hard time deciding whether to do homebirth this time, my midwife says I should just prepare for one anyway incase it turns out to be fast then at least I will be prepared. 2nd labour always faster right?

They say subsequent labours are faster but I guess you never really know with these babies

I've had no cravings this time round. Very strange.

I'm so tired the last few days. Work plus school runs, three kids and the daily grind of housework etc is running me ragged!

I'm super tired too, meeting has definitely kicked in over the past few days but apart from that I can't be bothered to do much. I get breathless so easily she's so high up!

Hi ladies. Thought I would update.

So last Thursday my blood pressure was at 172/120. I went in and was monitored for around 3 hrs. BP went down to 134/84 and despite contractions 3-4 minutes apart my cervix length was 3.5 and so I was released. I had to do a 24hr urine collection, and I turned that in on Friday. My BP on Friday was 142/86. I was given orders to rest and I came back today (monday). BP was 134/90. On good note the protein in urine was acceptable levels so no pre-e yet. But I do officially have the diagnosis of gestational hypertension. I'll be getting a NST and be seen every week now.

It's been a bit of a roller coaster.

Eek hope she stays in a little bit longer silas. We're nearly at the end now! My c section has been scheduled for 30th November but I'll stay here with the December mummies
