Oh Sarah...why am I not prepared for this child to eventually grow up and not always be happy and smiling?!! I am so not ready for hormones!

Been bouncing on the ball and my nipples are leaking oh my.

I hadn’t heard of kirb walking but I tried the sideways upstairs for hours! It didn’t work needless to say.

Is anyone planning on breastfeeding? I had forgotten how painful and never ending the first days are. Cluster feeding all night!

I'm planning on breastfeeding. Been trying to read and learn as much as I can to understand and anticipate how hard it's going to be! A bit scary trying to imagine how hard it'll be...especially at night. I hope you're doing okay Soph!

Bounced on that darn ball for 3 hours last night. All it did was make my pelvis and thighs stiff oh and send the baby off to sleep, didnt get my usual movements last night

Aww Soph. Hope it all works out soon.
I also plan to breastfeed but if it doesnít work it doesnt work. I can only try!

Thanks for the tip on stair walking. Every time I go up to the toilet I walk up sideways and was thinking of doing a fair bit of stair walking today but I wonít bother.

Iím actually starting to believe that nothing works... baby will just come when she is ready.

Heading to Greenwich for a wander in the park and the market for food.
Have a lovely weekend all!

Everytime i see a new post in here i get all excited thinking we may have a 'baby is here' or 'im on my way to hospital' post haha.

Getting loads of braxton hicks again today. My OH is taking my DD swimming. Lets hope i dont go into labour while they are in the pool!! I doubt it but would be bloody typical.

Is that you home now Soph. Have you agreed on a name yet? How has the recovery from elective section been in comparison to your emergency?

Hope you are doing well Soph, I plan on trying BF again this time but I'll not be putting myself under the same strain as I did last time. Do you have any lanisoh? It was a lifesaver for me last time because it does hurt.

Married, sadly as much as I wish they were smily and happy all the time, truth is their stroppy gits at times and I have nobody to blame but me for that because he's my double 😂

Hope you have a lovely day today London, as frustrating as it is, I think there just comes a certain point where nothing really seems like it is working and you just carry on with day to day life. That's when you'll be caught by surprise waters breaking in Asda or something though lol

Ooo keep active on the Braxton Hicks you never know it may turn into something more! I must admit im the same as you, every time I open this thread I expect to see at least one baby here!

As for me, OH let me stay in bed til 10 today as I actually slept all night and apparently baby was booting him in the back so hard this morning he gave up hope and got up and left me to it 😂😂 he did come with crumpets and coffee in bed for me which was a nice surprise.

Had to take my engagement ring off this morning however, my fingers are all swollen. Nothing else, just my fingers and I think it's just heat (heating was on fill tilt this morning) but I feel like sausage fingers haha! Quiet day for us, haircuts for Logan and Lloyd and home again as it's tipping down lol

Yeah I’m not now convinced anything helps to tempt baby out until they are ready. I also think the sweep gave me false hope because I knew I was already 1-2cm dilated and I had bloody show and lost mucus plug. It’s so hard not to obsess over everything though isn’t it! Not sure anyone can completely relax and just wait for it to happen.

JessyG the elective recovery was so so easy and can’t even compare to emergency. The whole thing was calm and lovely. 6 hours after he was out I was Showering without assistance and dressed in own clothes. Got home 48 hours later and was changing beds and doing housework. Definitely a positive experience.

Glad to hear it was such a good experience for you Soph.

Yeah ive changed my tune a bit... think she will come when she is ready and wants to come out.

Went for a lovely walk in Greenwich park, cold but not too bad and no wind or rain which helped. Then down to the market and stuffed my face with lots of food. I feel great now

Soph you saying that is like music to my ears. I'm in on Monday for mine and I've been panicking - not about the actual procedure itself but about the recovery. I'm so pleased to hear that it's gone so well for you so far.

Glad your having a good day London! Yummy food is generally a good way for a day to become a good one haha!

We've done a grand amount of nothing really today. Boys have got their hair cuts and are looking handsome, just about to pop a film on for us all and relax on the sofa as it's absolutely chucking it down still with no sign of let up lol might keep mini Mr attitudes attention for a few minutes at least!
