Hope I was definitely crying and being VERY loud during my 6 mins of pushing. Especially when they stop you from pushing and make you do the small panting pushes.

Too bad you didnít get to take advantage of all the nice things the birth centre offers!! Transition in a wheelchair... yuck lol!!

Ready I canít beliece it wasnít an easy labour after all the prodromal you had!! Not fair!! But the third labour is the wildcard. Mine was definitely worse than my 2nd pain wise although not much longer. So glad your sweetie is here now though, congrats xx.

Weíve had a lot of babies born right at due date or a bit past... only 3 that weíre early I think!
I was so positive it would be so quick and easy, I should have known just based on my pregnancy. There was a lip of the cervix that she couldnít get through so the MW had to (4x) reach up during a contraction to push it back over her head. After that happened the pushing was intense (had planned to breathe her out). And then her shoulder got stuck so I jumped (no joke-you move fast when you have to lol) our of the pool for some more hand manipulation but then she was out. Iím just so happy sheís here and safe.

You ladies with your babies, are you still cramping much? I guess I forgot about the intense cramping after but how long does it last?

Hope I'm positive I screamed the hospital down when I was pushing. DH and my midwives assured me I didn't but I bloody felt like I was.

Omg Ready! That sounds so stressful. And hands up there during contractions! Nope!! So glad she's here safe and sound for you now.

I'm still having afterpains, they feel like very strong period cramps that last for a few mins. Not really regular or anything tho, maybe every few hours.

We took Ryan for his first trip out today, up to school to pick ODS up. It was a bit further than I wanted to walk but I managed. It did kick off my bleeding again tho, which had nicely slowed down.
More worrying was the big anxiety attack I had about leaving the house. I was fine once I was outside, but I really think thought I was going to have a full panic attack.
I've made an appointment with my gp to sort out some birth control and get back on my anti depressants before it all gets out of hand.

I do feel loads better for the walk tho. And tomorrow we're going to register Ryan. He'll be a real person ^_^

There seem to be about 4 regular posters yet to have their babies... I've been geekily compiling a spreadsheet based on the front page post, the fb group and some BnB detective work!

Mine lasted just under a week, and were worse after BF.
Now I have gas-like pain and diarrhea.
I also think my internal tears are healing more as the inside of my bajingo is itching.

I’m 11 days in and the afterpains are gone. I’m gonna day about a week they lasted but we’re only bad for about a day or two and then just noticeable, not too intense for the rest of the week.

I’ve noticed that I’ve been spending a lot of time on my phone, I guess because I’m sitting nursing a lot but it’s extending into my non nursing time so I’m going to only be checking in on the weekends now! But I’m definitely waiting on your babes for the few that are left on this thread xx

RnW and Hope - Congratulations! What beautiful babies the two of you have

Rosie - Thanks for doing that

Chel - This might be a stupid suggestion, but would probiotics help with the diarrhoea?

Someone mentioned that baby was unhappy at bath-time (Chel...was it you?). Our son used to be really unhappy with his baths to start with. We realised that he just didn't like being cold. We filled his tub just a little deeper, and I'd drape a washcloth over his chest to keep him warm. We also used to heat up the bathroom with a little fan heater. Once we started doing that, he absolutely loved them. He'd complain when we took him out

Is it worth starting a thread for us in another part of the forum? I know we're all going to be busy, but it would be good to keep in touch as a group.
Any suggestions on the best place to do this?

I'm on probiotics! I was religious before the HG and just resumed them this week.
It's slacked off now. Just healing itchy tears.

Siler screams bloody murder at washing/soap/head but I had hubs make water a bit warmer and just having it poured over him doesn't elicit the demon within. It's Florida warm in our house.

Yazzy-don’t worry. I’m not due until next week either and I’m SURE you’ll be going before me, lol.

I was getting hopeful yesterday. I was having contractions at work all morning. They were irregular, but to the point where it was difficult to concentrate on my tasks. My appetite was gone and I just felt like crap in general. I bounced on the birthing ball at my desk in the afternoon and diffused Clary Sage last night. Today I feel completely normal..grrr. I’m tired of people asking me about the baby and anxiously anticipating the birth.

Strezy - I'm in the same boat, since Saturday actually. Having irregular contractions, sometimes ~20 minutes apart for hours. They would stop for a few hours and then resume. I was sort of hopeful that things were starting, but I've barely had a handful yesterday and today.

I'm really getting fed up of the emails, phone calls and text messages. My parents have even started messaging DH at work! I turned my phone off today because it kept waking me up when I was trying to nap. I couldn't take it and didn't want to be rude
I'm perfectly calm until people start messaging to ask what's going on.
