Marking spot. This MUST be the thread that my baby arrives on!

<marks place>

They've just started administering the pessary to the 2 ladies before me but they have clinical need so I'm going to assume they'll be done now and I'll be done in the morning.

Marking place- come on babies this is your month we don't want dec babies thank you!

Welcome Parofleurmapu, can we call you Fleur?

I managed to sleep on my left last night by turning back from my right every time I woke up and I have finally got baby's foot out of my ribs! Phew! I wonder how long it will be before he swings back to his accustomed ROA position?

Welcome*fleur*.

My wish list:

>I getto go post natal before the end of this thread
>this occurs all by itself without a kick start
>DS goes back to waking up at an acceptable time

I thank you.

Marking place. 39+3 today and have sweep booked on 7th, my due date. Been trying to keep up with threads but failing as they move so fast.

Hope all goes well for you Tits and your baby is here by tomorrow!

Good luck other mummies to be! I had maternity reflexology yesterday to 'balance hormones' and encourage wee one out. Here's hoping!

Chunkychicken Sat 03-Nov-12 11:25:51

Marking my spot (and hopefully not marking anything else if waters go, except with a show/mucus plug!! wink).

Hi thanks for welcome, you can call me Fleur buts that's my daughters name, was Paro before. Paroflmapu is a combination of all our names and the pets too!
I am 37 weeks so nearly there but good be sooner than I think, good luck everyone

Wishes for this thread

1. That bubs arrives without the need for induction
2. that bubs arrives in any way possible
3. that I stay sane while waiting and don't scream at the next person who asks me what's happening!

Am I right in thinking we're still waiting for our first Nov baby? Has to be tits turn, surely?!

Hello everyone. Another late joiner. Reckon I probably won't make it on this thread as only 36 weeks - not due till 30/11 so may be a December baby. Have had totally horrendous pregnancy (hyperemesis from days after conception (still being sick) and have been on crutches with SPD for the last two months as well). Just started mat leave and a bit freaked out by the whole thing. Desperately want pregnancy to be over so that I stop feeling sick/can walk again finally, but also don't really feel ready as have been so unwell for so long that I feel more ill than pregnant - not sure I'm ready for an actual baby! We have a crib and a buggy and some clothes but nothing else yet (no nappies, blankets etc etc) and I haven't packed a bag either. Can't get out so need to do some serious Amazon shopping this coming week, while also trying to get some work projects finished off at home. Anyone else incredibly unprepared?!

tits is being induced today so fingers crossed we have our first November baby soon!

MissMummy1 Sat 03-Nov-12 11:57:01

I'd like one more thread before baby arrives please! Or 9 more days at least (at our rate that's probably 2 threads, although anyone else notice how the antenatal thread is slowing down somewhat as you all graduate?) Anyway 9 days left at work until I qualify for maternity allowance!!!! gringringrin

Welcome Kalidasa and Fleur (gorgeous name for your dd btw!)

Kalidasa the sickness is so debilitating isn't it? I know I haven't had it nearly as bad as most people but had solid ms for the first 4/5 months that has now returned with avengance the past couple of weeks. Luckily no SPD this end so really feel for you suffering with both. Is this your first? I'm due 29th and although we have almost everything (still need moses basket mattress and my changing bag --that he still hasn't bloody ordered for me--) I'm not feeling even remotely prepared emotionally!

Am I the only person still working (if you can call my MNetting and eBay browising from the home office that!) ??

I have had the 24hr pro pess inserted, I really hope it doesn't take 24 hrs for contractions to start but with a rubbish closed cervix it probably will, but at least I'm on my way! smile

BarmeeMarmee Sat 03-Nov-12 12:31:37

Hi everyone-marking the new thread. Hi Kali - there's a name I recognise! Enjoy the Amazon shopping-a lot of mine was done there this time.

Anyone else any sign of any movement today?
