My cousin had their December baby yesterday. He was only 5lb 8oz and is having some blood sugar issues...he was originally due Dec 4.

Iíve had a sore throat for days, my boobs are leaking at times, I have a stupid hemorrhoid 😔 ...and I am a walking human oven. Literally. I am always hot.

And enough of my complaining Iím sure. Planning to get more done today to plan for baby. She must know I am not organized yet.

Aw hope he's doing well silas,

I feel like I'm actually sick of my own voice complaining at this point but everything hurts or is uncomfortable or much harder to do than it should be. I just want to stay in bed until she comes now.

I hope your cousins baby is doing well Silas!

Iíve found this week a bit harder. Getting a lot of pains down below and periods when my back is in a lot of pain and some pain in my tummy if Iím walking for too long. Midwife again tomorrow, I hope heís starting to engage which would explain the pains.

Anyone done their hospital bags yet? Need to get round to doing mine but having a complete blank about what to put in. Youíd think Iíd remember having done it three times now!

Silas- Hope the chiropractor works! I wonder if I should try that too? Feeling like my lack of exercise is going to make labour harder for me but everything hurts so I have zero motivation to even go for a walk.
Hope your cousins baby is doing well.

Natasha- same! I have my bag sitting there with a couple of pads and nappies in it and pretty much can't figure out what else I need lol

Well plus there's a chance baby will be born at home so I guess that's why I haven't put much thought into packing a bag.

Going home outfit

And a Muslin.

Roughly done, but itís a start.

Both our bags are half packed on the top of the changing unit. I'm hoping not to be in too long but bein my 3rd c section will definitely be a night or two,
In the babies bag there's just nappies, wipes plenty of sleep suits and vests and a blanket pretty much. Mine has big knickers, pjs, a towel, new slippers, lip balm, LANSINOH! Maternity pads. Don't forget a pen. I'm planning on taking a bag of snacks cus I always get so hungry bf and hospital rations don't do it and I've spent so long in that hospital over the past few years I refuse to pay the prices of the hospital shop lol haha
That has stuff like oat cereal bars, dried apricots, lucozade, chocolate raisins, mini cheddars etc.

I swear ladies, I am amazed. I went to chiropractor and got a test adjustment on my right hip. I feel a difference and although not nearly what I need it to be - that little relief is awesome. I go back tomorrow for another adjustment. My hip/back is super inflamed and swollen so it will take a few adjustments. Iím just hoping after tomorrow itíll be enough to help me get through the rest of this pregnancy. I also had my neck adjusted ...AMAZING. Never been to a chiropractor before and now I have no idea why, lol.
Anyhow, I really suggest it. I already feel a difference in my body & baby has been moving like crazy today so not sure if she liked it too or not but Iím feeling better. Was able to drive without any pain today and itís been a while!
