I haven't even started thinking about or packing my bag yet. I'm only 31 weeks so i'll do it when i'm about 36 weeks. I'm going to have to do 2 bags (one for my home birth and one in case I need to go to hospital which I REALLY hope I don't have to do)

You can buy an overnight bag from mothercare, maybe it's a job well done without doing it????

Thats pretty good buut :shock: @ the price!!
 
a jug...wow i never thought of that before !!! good idea bexxie!!!
 
I am sure you will be able to get a jug or similar from the hospital (thinking of space)
:D


Keep them coming!!!!! :D
 
the jug yes I know it hurts so bad first wee as really stings,can you remember that Tam? Ouch!

I think some of the bathrooms have a bidet thing with a shower in so could use that 8)
 
I don't remember that clearly, but it does ring a bell :)

I had problems with the other tho :cry:
 
ooh dont remember that VERY clear. My mum made me eat a basket of fruit and I had,had an epiesiotomy (sp?) so double ouch ouch......all worth it tho..
 
Aww hun no dont worry,it is just a little sore after birth and you knwo when you cut your self or graze even urine would sting it so thats all,also the number 2 we are joking it isnt that bad it is the thought.Thats all otherwise I wouldnt be doing it again.

phew haha

im seriously dreading giving birth. im just not a person who likes pain very much! i have no problem admitting that im a wimpy women!

oh well its gonna happen so i might as well accept it!
 
The giving birth bit is not the problem,the contractions are not as bad as people make out they are like period pains and have an epidural if you find it hard going,I am having one and i had just gas and air last time,I didnt like the pushing but then that is painless,just weird I guess......you will be fine I promise.
