Girlie's could be a good sign, When I started labour It felt like AF cramp's to me, But didn't think nothink of it even though I could'nt sleep that night. Then next day they got closer and more painful, I went to see my midwife that day who told me I was 2 CM's open. So I new labour had slowly started. x x x
Awww natt, totally understand hun, I wont lie I had the Epidural, It didn't even releave all my pain, and had baby's bum or feet in my rib's. The gas and air was good as long as labour was kept under control. My sister used to say Dont Lose Control what ever you do. She's had 5 kids so I new it was said for a reason lol. Well I lost control ended up crying like a baby lol. Wish I didn't now then I would not of have the epidural. It also fuck's your back up and can leave you paralised for life. Not good really. Wont ever be having one of those again. Natt even if it make's you sick pall though it hun. Your strong and you can do it. x x x
Yh it's like when you've been the dentists and they've numbed you lol very odd! Got the hospital tour tomorrow so I can always have a word there if I need to. Be nice to go into labour whilst there lol
Natt I think my pains are blue gettin lower more than anything. Trying to relax and not look for pains so it actually starts lol
Although epi's can be dangerous hundreds if not thousands are done daily with no problems. My grandad had them but higher up in his back than you do for labour so he could still walk and has been fine, they lasted for 3months too. Epi's personally don't worry me but everyone's different xx
Jess - Yeah I have heard that Epidural can leave you paralized, that's what's putting me off asking for one to be honest That plus I don't want to be bed bound, surely there are other pain meds they can give us other than gas and air? Aww thank you chick, I'm actually getting nervous now as I wanted to cry the other day when I had period pains! xxx
Laura - How did your hospital tour go chick? You have been quiet today so hopefully you have some good news xxx
Yh it was good natt, no news tho! The wards have all been redone over the last 12months so all the rooms are really nice and spotlessly clean! The ward was silent too! No screaming ladies which apparently is how it always is, they just get on with it and labour which made me feel better!
The only pains I had was in my hip which was really REALLY hurting by the end of it, Simon had to drive home bless him!
The only place we didn't see was the theatres as they had emergencies just before the tour and both being used! Think that might have scared me had we saw it tho!
Also you only have to stop in 4-6hours if the labour is straight forward and you want to go home, if not you can stay I or if there's been problems they will keep you in overnight etc.
These pains I'm having now need to turn into something or jog on tho! Feel like someone's drilling into my pelvis/hip and right under my bump hurts when I stand fed up and missing OH today! xx
Argggggh stupid 'previous thread' button! Now I've gotta write that all again!!
Surgery went well hun, she was sleeping when mum called, so she's coming home tomorrow think ill pop round and see my teddy bear thank you for asking
Yay for daily movements! It's brilliant news Hun won't be long before matts feeling snook too! Which reminds me your not far off half way through your pregnancy! How cool is that!
I thought the m&s would have passed by now Hun make sure your keeping hydrated and plenty of vits down you, we want a healthy mummy!
Well lil man's still only 4/5ths but mw said his head is fixed, not all that bothered as he could engage whenever. Been wrapping Xmas prezzie a this afternoon so I'm now surrounded by boxes and bags too tired to move them lol I've suddenly gone really tired! Think I may pounce on Simon and have a mug of raspberry leaf tea lol get this baby out! Xxx
Im so glad it went well honey. I hope shes back to running around soon with less pain!
Man...Im usually done with my shopping at this stage but ive bought only 2 persons lol. I so cba! Must change that attitude!!
Laura LOL Having a big bum when pregnant is normal. My arse went wamp lol. Even my baggy PG like trouser's (SWEET PANT'S LOL) were getting tight round my bum lol. x x x
Sarah Totally true hun, I agree, It's to do with a good happy and loving relationship. But not when stressing over TTC... I wont deny it, we've all had our moment's right. Not saying I get stressed now because Iv been realy relaxed and chilled out this cycle. x x x
Natt I would have hun, But That Gas & Air is Weird... It's a mad buzz, But made me feel like I was gonna be sick... But apart from that when keeping it under control it really halp's the pain. lol, Ended up not being able to say much... x x x
First off..LOVE the new piccie. She is absoutely gorgeous hun
I know exactly what you mean. TTC takes so much stress and pressure its unbelievable. I felt it building every cycle longer that went. I would cause fights over everything and anything. I know it was just my frustrations at still being trying but I couldnt stop it. Soon as lines started to form on those OPKs id turn into a nightmare!!
TTC is really a good test of a relationship Id be more woried if there werent a few arguements and strains along the way! x
