BROOKING NO ARGUMENT for pain-free sneeze births and an abundance of empty birthing pools - pt 12!

I think this is the first time I've ever started a brooking thread! shock <hopes she doesn't break MN>

Right, I'm going to do a new thread before we run out of room. Hang on...

Fluff - Jen has got me on the fb thing - thanks smile

Fluffster - I've accepted your friend request. Ready for action on the group assuming you're not mid-sneeze grin

<waves to everyone else>

Good luck Fluffter - BROOKING for a mild and pleasant sneeze and soon.

Cakes - what a shame re' the EMCS as you were doing so well to get to 9cm, but like you say, a happy gorgeous amazing baby is all that matters. Good luck with getting back on your feet and getting home.

Smegs - had that one too. Sick for 24hrs but stomach dodgy for about a week. Good luck. Try to keep hydrated even if sick all the time.

Scarlett - your gender prediction story sounds so familiar. DS is 80% insisting that we're having a DD this time, though I'm laying money on a DS2 and am mentally prepared for that outcome. DP says he'd be v surprised if we got ourselves a girl. But there you go. I'm still certain that either is bloomin marvellous, just give me that baby. Oh and remember those nappy armageddons - nothing for it but a bath...

Just had a parking ticket - 8 minutes late (time on mobile was out by 5 mins). W*nk. And strange chest pain seems to have developed into a trapped nerve under shoulder blade or badly pulled muscle. Grrr. Was doing pretty well with this pg until week 28...DP now away for a fortnight so I will have to grin and bear it. Sleep is the tricky bit and am shock by how much paracetamol I have taken in this pg though never more than 2 tabs a day and not every single day. Feel v guilty... sad

TTFN, thinking of Cakes and Fluff in particular.

Sorry didn't mean you peed your self fluff, yours is very likely to be your waters, I just wanted to share my funny humiliating story, there are not many times in polite conversation you can drop that little anecdote in smilesmile

PrincessPumpkinshoutsBOO Sun 07-Oct-12 17:02:02

Ooh Fluff sounds very exciting, newborn snuggles very soon smile when I was in labour with ds2 I thought my waters broke and very proudly went off to the mw for checking (had been having contractions for 12 hours, I have very long first stage) she had to discreetly tell me I had actually peed myself a little bit blush it was the very large baby engaging.

Thanks for adding me to the FB group Fluffy!!!

thank you fluuf, have friended you.

PM'd you Ninja smile

<a bit late to the party>
Huge congrats to cakes and baby Isla, what a lovely name. Sorry to hear about the dramatic entrance but I hope you are healing well? Looking forward to seeing you on the post grads thread (which I am equally crap at posting on).
Can someone pm me re the fb group?

Well no more glugs typical! smegs it didn't smell of much of anything, so definitely not wee. It was a lot for CM but maybe it was just that hmm

Aww smegs take it easy sad don't overdo it, just get lots of rest.

ScrambledSmegsEvilTwin Sun 07-Oct-12 09:31:41

Fx for you fluff. Probably too 'ick' but, er, did you smell it? Waters have a straw-like smell, different to wee or other emissions...

I'm still being sick. Very weak now. Dd is having a sleepover at GP's, we were meant to be getting on with clearing the junk spare room and sorting baby stuff, no chance of that now. Rubbish sad.

I completely forgot to comment on cakes delivery, self absorbed or what! blush

I was surprised how long it took to get you to hospital too - you were lucky they transferred you when they did! emcs sounds scary Mary, but I'm glad it went well smile

TheLittleFriend Sun 07-Oct-12 09:18:48

Exciting fluff! Maybe give it an hour or so to see if anything else happens, then ring Mw or mat ward for advice. Very excited for you grin

I'll pop upstairs in a mo and sort out fb for everyone smile

Just got up and had a glug of fluid come out blush - no contractions though so it could be leaky waters (it was def not a big gush though, just a glug) or it could be a preggo's ample supply of cervical fluid i suppose. Now just sitting with a pad on and seeing what happens!

What do I do if I keep glugging but have no contractions, phone the midwife in a few hours dot advice?

That's it, I'm officially losing the plot.

That last post was meant for post grads. And it took me an age to type on my phone.

Meant to say yesterday, well done your DDs Scream and pomme on the improved sleep.

Hawthers sorry to hear your worries re DS1. I guess there's not much anyone can say to make you feel better about it as you will probably always worry about how his early arrival might impact on his future. But I can say there are lots of babies born at term who are behind in their development, my DS included and I have stressed so much in the past about kids the same age developing much quicker. I'm sure as your DS gets older these differences will become far less noticable. It must be upsetting for you if you're worried, you naturally want your DH to reassure you and if it then becomes apparent he's worried as well it can make everything appear much worse.

Thanks for new thread Biscuits. Sorry to hear you're sleep deprived. I admit that I would probably do the same as your DH if it were the middle of the night and toy just want DS back to sleep ASAP. But yes if he spent more time with him in the day this might possibly help to prevent the rejection.

Wow Cakes! Sounds a bit scary, but totally worth it for your brand new cutie! Well done for getting through it!

ScrambledSmegsEvilTwin Sun 07-Oct-12 00:32:07

Hmm - maybe ask your Midwife or HV?

Sorry I'm posting so late. I've caught DH's viral bug thing and have been sick all evening. Now MNing in bed next to emergency bucket sad. Sleep evading me.

They mentioned to Dh about the debrief but not sure i've had anything that was specifically referred to as a debrief. Forgot to mention that at Hospital they said Isla was back to back as well as my body stalling.

We have two district general hospitals that the southern part of county uses, both are a similar distance time wise from where I live but one is in England and one is is Wales and we wanted the Welsh one smile

I really am cracking up. Apologies Little and Cakes. Of course I was referring to Cakes's DD's arrival. blush

I'm still traumatised from one of DD's nappies from earlier this evening. Poo up to the back of her neck and all the way down to her feet. No exaggeration.

Biscuitsandtoffeeapples Sat 06-Oct-12 21:58:03

Wowee Cakes - what a dramatic arrival! So glad you're both home and safe now though. Hope it is all going ok?

Wow though - an hour and a quarter in the ambulance! shock. Is that how far you live from the hospital? You're in Wales though no?

Fluff I've PM'd you too so you can sort me out while you're sorting out scarlet as it were. It's ok if you're already in labour, you can just do it between contractions winkgrin

Wow that was a dramatic arrival Little. I hope you're recovering well.

I thought I'd posted earlier, but I'm clearly cracking up. Just nipped in to ask Fluff to hold off on the sneeze birth for a little while as I've just PM'd you my FB details. Would you mind adding me to the group please?
