Congratulations Rach, he's a perfect size for his gestation! Looking forward to hearing more.

This morning I just want to cry. After hours of what felt like latent phase contractions they've stopped. In the night I woke feeling really sick like I was about to have diarrhea but I got back to sleep and everything has gone.
I felt it all slowing down about 9pm but then the ones I was getting seemed to be stronger even if they were longer apart.
This morning I tried to encourage my oh to have sex but he was tired and not in the mood so he was a bit snappy with me for trying just to get labour going.
I feel achy in my bump but I don't feel like things are progressing at all.
I just feel ever so down.

Sending hugs pg. It sounds like things are progressing just slowly.

Awwww PG, I hope things come along quickly and soon. With the missing tickers I forget your gestation but I think you are 'overdue' right? You were close to my due date.....


Squig, a few hours in the crib in the morning? Sounds like bliss!

My due date was the 4th June but I was thinking he would be here about the 10th as my dd was a week overdue.
I've had some more bloody show (I hate that phrase) today and the odd few cramps but nothing like yesterday at all. I'm seeing the Midwife tomorrow so hopefully she can do another sweep and let me know if the pains I've felt are actually doing anything at all. Otherwise I'll have to wait till Monday for an induction time.

Oh PG, I am so so sorry. It’s awful. I hope you go into labor very very soon.

Allie, I spoke too soon. She obviously heard me & has refused to sleep unless being held since yesterday afternoon. But she seems to be having some digestive issues which are causing her extreme discomfort. There's a it of poop but it really pains her to get it out, even though it's runny not hard. So I'm not really sure what to do. If anyone has any experience or advice, I'd like to hear it. She is now exclusively formula fed but she strained a lot even when she was getting breast milk.

Baby probiotics and/ or gripe water help a lot!

I've finally made it!
Dylan Michael was born today at 12:20. He's a big boy, 9lb 11oz and got stuck so we had a big panic with getting him out and all the Midwives ran in but he's here now.
