    Thank you all!

    Nope her bedrooms not done in the slightest! But got everything else sorted, only got my section date this time last week so I've been running about getting everything ready the past few days.. Her crib is sat ready for her in our room & the Moses basket is downstairs all happy waiting lol.

    Can't wait to see all of our babies! x

    Hi meaggers!

    I haven't seen you on the thread you started way back in May when you were worried about your short cervix and preterm labour! I was wondering what ever happened to you. Look how far you've come...Wow you're 38 weeks and 5 days! Well into full term. Congratulations girl. And good luck!! Can't wait to hear all about it...such inspiration.

    And your bump looks great :)

    Hiiii! I'm ok thanks, yeah very nervous though! I'm doing absolutely nothing today :) don't think it's hit me that a baby is coming out tomorrow! Feels so strange. I'm ready for her now though, had horrible spd the past few weeks I can't even turn over in bed :(

    How're you? Xx

    I've got a really bad cough that pulls the muscles under my bump, hope this cold goes soon.
    hopefully the spd will disappear after baby is born. babies change really quickly in the first two hours after birth, if you can, get your birthing partner to take loads of photos x

    Make sure you take a last bump pic or vid! x

    Yup I had her! Isabelle Alexa, born at 4:47pm on Wed weighing a tidgy 5lb13 at 39+1! Her blood sugars caused concern cos she's so little but she seems happy + thriving now, we only came home yesterday and my phone didn't work at hospital to update anybody before now :nope: was horrible but worth it! I ended up on a drip cos I was dehydrated and I was projectile vomiting after the op, ew.

    Recovery wise its going okay and my scar is healing well. Got told to stop doing so much by the health visitor today though cos its day 3 and I've walked up and downstairs about 8 times today :dohh: want to stay mobile but then need a wee and need to go back upstairs, its so hard! Pain wise isn't too bad, I'm just uncomfortable - its hard to think I had major surgery so soon ago!

    Breastfeeding wise, we had a little nightmare.. She was amazing at first latched first time every time and fed really well, her blood sugar was too low so they topped her up with formula so she didn't need a drip and she wasn't interested in boob after that and wouldn't latch properly making me bleed then she started feeding every half hour for 20min a time so was reopening them and I spent all the second night crying with her! Day 3 today I've given her formula and I've waited til my nipples healed and have started expressing! So best of both worlds til she will latch again, if she doesn't at least I tried and she had 2 days of colostrum and will now have a few bm bottles a day :)

    Sorry for the massive message! Hope you're all well!! xx

    Thank you :)

    Advice, umm.. Expect to be delayed, I was there from 8am and only had her at 4:47pm because there were a lot of women who needed stitches/forceps/emergency sections, take things to keep you occupied! And afterwards get up as soon as legs regain feeling, helped me a lot or I'd still be scared to get up now! Good luck :) xx

    I think I forgot to update on this thread... sorry!

    Liam Oliver was born at 9:48am on September 28th and weighed 9lb 6oz and was 21 inches long. He actually had flipped to footling breech by the time I delivered. Because of this my Dr. said I made a good choice with the c-section, that the version would have bee very risky, since footling breech babies have a higher risk of getting tangled in the cord (that and he had a 15in head at birth- I am glad I didn't have to push that out my hoo hoo ;)) The c-section went fine and recovery was alot easier than I thought it would be! Little guy had low blood suger at birth, but it was corrected with a little supplement. He also had jaundice, but luckily didn't need photo therapy. I was able to breastfeed him for a week, but then he started refusing to nurse, so I have been pumping and bottle feeding. He eats like a champ! He already eats 3-4oz every 3 hrs and I think he is ready to eat a little more at a time!

    Here is a pic:

    Wow! Lots of babies being born!!! Congratulations, ladies!!!

    I'm doing well, with no signs of impending labor. I'm not due till the 25th, so I guess that's okay. :haha:

    Congratulations cazi and Katia!

    Twinkie, he's beautiful! Glad it went well!

    Wilf, hope everything goes well!!

    I'm still hanging in there. Due Friday, but really no signs that she's gonna come soon. Had a contraction yesterday after doing some shopping, but nothing after that. Maybe a couple last night too. Guess I'll find out at my appt today if there's any progress.
