    Rowan- I think I would go for the elective c-section, why do they have to give you a spinal and an epidural for the c-section?

    Thanks hon - they havent given me the option of an elective yet unfortunately - unless martha is still breech at 36 weeks - so I suppose she'll lead the way

    I am a bit funny with anaesthetics - locals tend not to work on me and Im v v resistant to general as well and take a long time to wake up - so for an elective the Dr was thinking if I had a spinal and an epi which could be constantly topped up it may be the same affect as a normal epi on someone else

    Im trying to be positive about it but struggling at times! I think Im just so concerned to get martha out safe and sound its making me a little anxious!

    sorry am rambling on! You now when you just need to process something and get your head round it? I need to relax and take Marthas lead - if she turns then v labour it is with the risk of an emergency section just the same as anyone else but with GA - if she doesnt then hopefully elective section it is....

    if I could opt for elective tho I definately would! :)

    lilrojo- thats great hun, its feels so good to make hit each new milestone.

    Rowan- you are not rambling! Is the only thing that makes you nervous about the vaginal birth the thought of something going wrong and having to have general anesthetics? If I could have a vaginal birth again this time I would be all over it. Im terrified about the csection but I know its whats best for me. I think you are right little Martha will show you whats best for her. Just try to relax as much as possible and think about a positive birth experience.

    Gill- Congrats and welcome!

    Thats great news Nichole!!

    How is everyone else doing?

    I am doing well, i've started the count down until her arrival, 28 more days!!! I had my last growth scan last week, she is still only in the 10th percentile for size, but they don't seem to be worried about her bowels or size. They think she is just a small little girl. I just want her here so bad!

    Today I had my last scan and all is looking good.
    My induction date is next Monday (28th November) it can take up to 24 hrs so fingers cross it will happen after first attempt.

    Because of my diabetes I have to go in to hospital on Sunday night to monitor my sugar levels.
    My friend's little boy was very ill just 3 hrs after he was born because his sugar levels were so low. Lets just hope that our little girl will be fine.
    I was really controlling my sugars and carbohydrates well ( 9 weeks since I was diagnosed as diabetic ) and I put on only 4kg! ( 8.8lbs) during whole pregnancy which is so good as I really want to loose lots of weight after pregnancy.

    Hospital bag nearly done! Just some snacks and few little things to ready, but main things are ready.

    OMG this time next week I could be screaming my head off!!!
