Wow, sounds like we're gonna have babies on this thread sooner rather than later! Exciting!
I had a Dr apt a couple days ago, and was told baby is measuring a bit small (measuring 31 wks while I was 33 wks). My daughter measured small too, and was late so I'm preparing myself for a long wait lol She is head-down already though!
I'm feeling pretty rubbish Feel very heavy and stretched and having dizzy spells. Last day at work tmro and have a midwife appointment on Monday so may see what the new plan is. LO is 2+ weeks big so hoping they won't let me go over. He's already over 6+1/2 pounds
I'm currently 35+2 (due 11th April) but baby could be delivered as soon as next week, due to suspected IUGR.
My first son was born at 36+5, again due to suspected growth restriction so I've had to be pretty prepared. Bags are packed and ready to go, I just need to wait for my appointment on Monday to figure out what they want to do next.
oh wow they could be babies on our thread sooner rather than later wooooohoooooo. Good luck ladies xx
Pita - great that baby is head down already! Fx for a growth spurt too.
Ceri - sorry you're feeling rubbish. I bet you can't wait to finish work, hopefully you'll be able to get some rest then. Although if your first week off is anything like mine you'll be shattered! I can't help but do things all day and then suffer with back pain in the evening.
I have my 36 w appt on Wednesday and if my mw still thinks baby is breech then I'll be going for a scan to check. Can't wait to find out (and see baby again) it's quite hard trying to mentally prepare for a natural delivery and a CS!
Wow I can't believe we could possibly have our first babies so soon in our thread!
Anyone else feel like just giving up on sleep altogether??
Last two nights really really sucked I went to bed at 10pm and got up to wee 5 times, woken by BH twice, woke up to hard kicks 3 times, my son woke me twice due to nightmares. Not to mention the heartburn waking me and the trying to get comfortable think i would have been lucky to get one hour interupted sleep. I prob got 5hrs all night even though was in bed 10pm till 7.30am
I think thats it for me and sleep now. Until well.... shes an adult i guess
wtb- your postage me laugh. today I was telling someone that other than not sleeping well I'm feeling pretty good. but that alone doesn't make me more ready to have baby because we all know the sleep situation doesn't get better for a bit haha.
on another note I went for a brisk 1 hour walk and lost part of my mucous plug. I forgot just how nasty that is. I know it means nothing as far as when baby is coming but reminded me that it's not too far! sometimes it feels like I'll be pregnant forever and other times like it's flying by. Anyone have tips for how to mentally stay in the moment you are in?? I really want to enjoy these last few weeks as it is for sure the last time I'll be pregnant.
Wtb what is sleep, I have forgotten that word existed . I wake up about 5 times to wee and my lo's wake up either because of cough or cold or just want me. . So I just take whatever I can get and I also wake up when I try to turn in bed .
I feel u Kazy this is also my last so I am trying to enjoy it before its over but it's not really working lol
