thanks WillYou, if people missed it at the end of the last thread here is our postnatal board smile

I reckon I have a while to get through here before I will need postnatal!

Foolish me - didn't realise the other thread is postnatal! Should I request to get my post deleted or just leave it as a monument to my inability to read?

Anyway, here's what I was saying...

*

We have moved again!

I think, after a long time of being clueless, that I can sometimes identify Braxton Hicks. They usually occur for me at the very top of the bump. I have had a night or two of some mild period-type pains - are they BH as well? I'll ask my consultant next week.

Ordered an EpiNo on the advice of a friend who has had 2 natural births with children with frankly enormous heads - tore terribly with the first, used the EpiNo with the second and had no problems. It arrived today and doesn't look too intimidating, but perhaps when I actually start using it I might change my tune! Can't use it until 37 weeks so back in the box it goes.

Spoke to my mother in law today - she is so excited to be a grandmother. Really quite lovely. They'll be in the UK just after the birth and I think for the first time she really was upfront about how excited she is - not just about the bean, but also seeing us as it has been 18 months. She misses her only son!

I am in a good mood today - can't wait to see the parents in law, can't wait for Christmas, and can't wait to meet my baby!

Found you! I was in the other thread looking around confused confused

Walnut8 Wed 14-Nov-12 04:07:41

fandango if it makes you feel any better, I'm 36+4 but will probably go over by 2 weeks! in the last antenatal thread I was on, I was due on the 13th, but didnt give birth until the 28th so was one of the very last ones!

sorry about the GD stacey sad I hope you can still have the birth you want. It's interesting over here, homebirths are practically unheard of (seen as too risky), no birthing pools in hospitals, no birthing centres (that I've heard of) ... it's all hospital birth with midwives and consultants.

Have overdone it today and feel shite. Spent whole morning in the city, taking DD to see a very creepy santa. She refused to sit on his knee at first and so I was made to get in one of the photos. Bad idea! Now am depressed by sheer size of thighs in photo. Needless to say i didn't pay for that one!

Glad your dh has understood brooke

mama good pram choice, if we weren't so tall I would have gone for the iCandy, I also looked at the bugaboo and agree it's not as sturdy.

I have no pains sad the only time in my life I want the pains. I have been telling bump to get out quite loudly so now dd has joined in. Last night dd was stood at my bump shouting get out, followed by dh and then me, we did it for around 5 minutes but still nothing. I love feeling her little limbs inside me but I just want to see them now and look at her in her Moses basket and hold her.

Walnut8 Wed 14-Nov-12 04:58:34

cute strawberry smile .. my DD keeps asking me when the baby will be "finished". How far along are you now? Now that we are at the business end, is it time to find that due date list again and update it?

Walnut8 Wed 14-Nov-12 05:24:34

Oh just realised there is an entire thread devoted to our stats?! whoops blush

Hi everyone. Don't get much time to post on here and it moves sooooo fast! Just to say I've got my ELCS booked in for 17th December. I'm sure there'll be a few babies popping out before mine though smile.

Mummycox Wed 14-Nov-12 06:32:35

I'm on maternity leave and I'm awake at 0630...

Return of the morning sickness sad well nausea anyway.

WillYou those questions you mentioned about the birth did you get the answers yet because I think I can help as I had a very similar conversation with my diabetes specialist midwife the other day and will further be discussing it with consultant today. I've been told I can labour in the pool (my hospital has waterproof monitor) bit not deliver. I think they want CFM but I'm pretty sure you can fight it? Definitely still bf in fact even more reason to do so. No reason why you should have to labour on your back you just might have to stay close to the bed.

Looking forward to our scan results today!

Brooke I'm glad your letter worked smile

Oh and EEK knotty grin
