    Ok I wasn't bothered about getting baby out but now I'm over the 39 weeks I'm a bit more keen.

    I don't want to have sweeps or be induced so I really want baby to come in the next few days.

    Has anyone/everyone noticed how much more tired they are in the last couple of weeks? I've gone from feeling pretty normal to needing a good two hour sleep every day.

    My bump feels heavier, I can't stop weeing, lots of pressure, period pains, BH etc but no 'show'.

    Come on baby, I'm a bit bored if waiting, just want to crack on with post baby life now!

    Same as you Jellycat, I had no bloody show but lots of mucus plug. I probably only have one day left of waiting :happydance: Hopefully they call me tomorrow for my induction. I hate having to wait for them to call to say "Ok, it's your turn. Come on in!" argh. I need to be prepared! I need a few hours notice! Luckily, Hubby is staying home just in case.

    Oh I hope so too!! But I've been wishing for it every night this week and woke still pregnant. I'm going to try not too think too much about it today because I'll be even more disappointed tomorrow. At least I know I might have my LO tomorrow in my arms!

    Not holding much hope on my sweep it was a trainee midwife doing it and wasn't uncomfortable in the slightest either my cervix has moved down more or the sweep wasn't done fully ? Either way I'm just going to wait but not get my hopes up

    Hope the sweep works for you!

    Feeding isn't going well here. I'm torn between carrying on bf and switching to ff. I think what bothers me most is what people will think of me. But I do feel ff would be better for us as a family. Has anyone else felt this way?

    It is so painful and takes so long. She's not settled after and isn't sleeping at all really at night. I'm lucky to get a couple of hours. I haven't had time with dd1 & i'm so tired I take it out on dh. I don't enjoy feeding dd2 and I can't wait for it to be over.

    I'm having trouble with night time, but it's more on my part than on Jesse's. He feeds great and falls deep asleep afterwards, but I have trouble sleeping cuz while his noises are adorable, they're also VERY loud. No one mentions that part, do they.

    If you think that FF is the right thing for you then it's the right thing for you.
    What other people think should NOT be a factor here. It's not an easy decision, but ultimately, you need to do what's best for you, both your kids, and your own sanity.

    I have been unable to BF. I've been hand expressing and pumping because I feel so sad and guilty about it. In a week I've collected only half an ounce. People who know me tell me its ok, but I still feel bad, bc I feel like my body let me down. I was at the mall and gave him a bottle and got some pretty judgmental looks :( But Nate is doing well on formula and it has given DH an opportunity to also feed and bond with him that way while I go to bed early. Certainly more convenient, but also more expensive. So I am happy about those parts. Just hard to accept that I cant produce enough.

    You have to do what is best for you and your family! There is nothing wrong with deciding to FF :)
