    Hope everyone is doing well!

    I will make some adjustments to my birth plan with my first but otherwise things will stay the same: no interventions or medications unless medically necessary, I will labor in whatever position I want (never laying down!) and push in whatever position I want, absolutely NO coached pushing from nurses/doctors, delayed cord clamping of 2 minutes or more (last time I requested this and I definitely got only a minute or less!!), allow placenta to detach naturally, and requesting early discharge so long as me and baby are doing well!

    This sounds perfect!

    it is definitely along the lines I plan to go down.

    I did a very brief one today, preferably water birth, midwife led. No drugs and delayed cord clamping and hopefully no induction.

    waaah it is getting so close now!

    I am so excited! OH gets home from his military deployment in 2 weeks and then we have 2.5 weeks til due date! I iwll be so happy when he is here and home! I can imagine I will be so happy il produce enough hormones to go into labour lol. Xxx

    Pretty sure i lost my mucus plug yesterday. I had some consistent braxtin hick contractions the day before. Every half hour to 45 mins for a few hours. I'm 36 weeks now, so the twins should be fine to come at any time.

    My csection is scheduled for the 21st, so I'm getting close to meeting my new littles.

    This is very exciting! The end is imminent! 36 weeks is great :)

    have you had any more tightenings since you lost the plug?

    I've been having more frequent tightening, but nothing painful or too close together. I have monitoring appts twice a week so if my contractions start getting close they should notice at those appts. Getting comfortable to sleep is impossible, i can't wait for these kids to get out so I'm not dealing with the pull of all that weight at night

    I will be exactly 39 weeks on my induction day. I have no real medical reason for be induced, this is just more of an convenience request as this is my 5th child and I was hopeful to have it a bit planned out so that things are a bit calmer.

    Hey ladies, can I join you?
    I am the lone straggler in my April group and feeling zero signs of anything. Historically I have days of contractions leading up to the real deal (happened every single time after my first) and that hasn't even begun, so I feel strongly I'll be a May mama.
    Hope you all are well and it's ok for me to thread crash :)

    Welcome! How are you doing? Are they planning on inducing you soon?



    I apologize for disappearing. I've been nesting and sleeping. I'm 1cm dilated. I was excited until I googled it and it was like don't be too excited it can stay that way for weeks... The nursery is set. Everything is in its proper place. I may change how I have his clothes in the dresser though.

    I hope everyone else is doing well! Staying strong. Covid free or recovering.

    Nesting and sleeping sounds ideal! Im glad everything has got sorted!
    My OH returned from his military deployment and has finished his 10 days isolation, so I am beyond happy he is here for the birth. we have sorted so much in the last week but so ready for this baby.

    that is great you are already starting to dilate, definitely a positive, as that must mean your cervix has effaced!

    hope everyone is well! So excited over here!

    I can't believe all of us are due soon or overdue! It's crazy, time has definitely been flying.

    Update on me:
    I had a failed induction last Wednesday (39 weeks exactly), they had given me pitocin since I wasn't fully thinned out...contractions were every 2 minutes, but not doing a dang thing with my cervix. I have been at 2 cm dilated since 38 weeks, I have done 3 membrane strips as well, still nothing! He just is really chill in there, but had fun flirting with the ladies playing catch me, moving constantly, they had to come in every 10-15 minutes to move the heartbeat monitor, since they lost him <3

    We will be going in for our 2nd induction on Monday; than I will be 39 weeks and 5 days. We will see what happens, DH and I are very laid back and understand things happen at the weirdest times....so hopefully this time works. The only real reason we are doing inductions is because just the convenience of our 3 children; makes it easier...I will keep everyone posted :)

    Hey sorry I have been away ages life has been crazy!
    Baby Lily born on the 30th April @ 8:27pm 39+1
    6lb 6 1/2
    19 inches long.
    Had a problem with reduced movements and they booked me in for a
    Induction on Friday 2pm I went there and they checked me before going to put in the pessaries but I was already 2cm and they could feel my waters so they broke them and put me on a hormone drip. After 2hours 27 mins she arrived on codine and gas and air.
