How many babies are we going to get on this thread?

Bellaboo123 Sat 01-Dec-12 04:15:58

Thanks honey

EggsMichelle Sat 01-Dec-12 04:18:36

Thanks Honey

Bella it's getting exciting for you! I'm also relieved its not my turn today, this cold is making me feel terrible, not had a cold this bad in years! I'm hungry too but scared ill be making frequent toilet trips again.

Watching deep blue sea, such a cheesy film!

Thanks honey

I would quite like to meet my baby now tbh. Was stupidly sick last night, not sure why but it wasn't fun. I want to be me again and not ill and uncomfy. (and with a squishy newborn).

Hmm...I've missed a whole thread haven't I?

I have no news, the baby is still there, due date Monday and nothing. Went for acupuncture yesterday and after two needles everything went black soooo that didn't suit me. I have bought a lovely clary sage and jasmine oil from neals yard and last week had the best session of reflexology I've ever had so it's not all bad.

Think I had better go and find out who has had their babies on the last thread!!

Clarella Sat 01-Dec-12 05:07:44

Lol dp honey!

Gah I always post on the old thread!

Ooo bella maybe it is?! Hope so.

o body mentioned my cervix till the actual sweep at 40+1 and unless they do an internal for some reason (eg going into labour, checking how dilated or something else to do with consultant care) I'm not sure they do?I've had my hopes up/freaked out so many times in the last 4 weeks with niggles and pains and contractions I'm starting to think I'll ignore anything that does start happening!Sorry there's so many people with colds. It makes it just so crap and I agree you really don't feel like doing the labour thing. I'm still feeling very oddly woozy but no actual cold symptoms other than watery eyes. Hoping I'm fighting it.

Hope you haven't got what I had stacey it's bloody hard being sick with a bump.

Clarella Sat 01-Dec-12 05:08:29

No body ...

2blessed Sat 01-Dec-12 05:23:09

- now up for toast and tea. Bah - I'm sleepy! --This will teach me not
to nap in the afternoon.--

Havent had time to read through everything but <waves> to everyone. And bella that sounds exciting!! How are you going now?

knottyhair Sat 01-Dec-12 07:13:48

Hi all, just checking in on new thread (I don't post much blush). Good luck to all of you showing signs of things happening! I'm just hoping my little girl stays put until ELCS booked for 17th. Will check back later to see if there's any developments for anyone!

kiwi5 Sat 01-Dec-12 07:15:33

Hi. Just wanted to wish all you ladies the best of luck. Hope you are all snuggled up with ur little ones after a lovely labour! My december pudding was not meant to be, i lost it back in may. I am now expecting a june strawberry! Take care of yourselves and have a wonderful christmas. Unmumsnetty love xxx

Pop sounds like it Bella I did a lot of pacing and rocking on all fours in my early stages and I think that really helped move things along. If they stop then quickly sleep as mine did for a good hour and a half before they came back with a vengeance! Exciting!

That should say ooo not pop hmm

kiwi that's lovely news best of luck for an uneventful pregnancy!

pmgkt Sat 01-Dec-12 07:26:47

Marking place!. I had some braxton hicks last night, and my mum, who is staying for a few nights sent everyone to bed, saying just in case let's get some sleep now. Slight over reaction but great way to get an early night and I slept very well too.

JoJoB77 Sat 01-Dec-12 07:49:31

Morning all

Was up with DD at 430, she's not well poor baby sad

I'm not due until the 17th and thats fine with me, i'd like DD to be better if thats ok new baby, can you hear meeeee....!

I'm having lots of BH throughout the day, generally painless tho.

Hope all ok smile

Checking in ladies, and good morning.
Ooo sounds like it could well be it bella! Keepus posted.
Best of luck kiwi hope you have a smooth and happy pregnancy.
Hope there is some progression v soon clarella, I'm bad enough now I dread to think what I'll be like when overdue!
I can't remember who mentioned clary sage? (stacey maybe ?!) but I've been using it for a while now and nope, nothing. I mix it with bio oil and put some in my bath.
I have a really weird sensation in my fango this morning (sorry tmi) it's different to the shooting pains.. Almost feels.. Bruised?? Anyone ?!

Clarella Sat 01-Dec-12 08:00:42

I thought you'd maybe popped too strawb!

Cookies, I had a swollen bruised feeling for a while over a week ago, also in top of thighs. Yet another sign that's buggered off leaving me feeling like I'm 28 weeks again!!!!!

Clarella Sat 01-Dec-12 08:02:01

Congratulations kiwi!

How are you and Felix today spotty?

I'm ok thanks am home at the moment. He had his lumber puncture and it was clear of meningitis but was slightly yellow which could be down to the jaundice or an hold brain bleed so they want to do a brain scan sad but I'm quite optimistic. Going to stay tonight and it'll be the last night as dp has to go back to work Monday so I'm never going to get to see Felix sad

Mummycox Sat 01-Dec-12 08:14:01

Good luck Bella and Kiwi

Hope all the nasty bugs vanish for you all soon.

Spotty hope it goes well today. Poor Felix.
