Congrats to all the new arrivals! Still quite a few to go from the list too.

Lora the shop man had a cheek! Is he a friend, someone you know? I'd have slapped him.

DD hiccups a lot too - putting her back on the breast cures them, IF she goes on. But hiccups are a sign of a good feed.

Congratulations on all the new arrivals! So many beautiful names. They seem to be coming at speed now!

Due date today, and no sign of her budging. Pains between my legs are real bad though, so hopefully that means something is happening.

I've also had some slight pains quite low down in my belly, towards my hips. They're not really like period pains, more like dull stabbing pains that come and go. Also feeling quite sick the last couple of days, like I've got a big lump in my throat.

Good luck to everyone else still waiting!

Lora1982 Sun 13-Jan-13 14:01:59

Yeah i know him quite well so even though he was being severely thick i can laugh about it. My friend whos late 30s got asked if she was the grandma to her kids the other day so i got off lightly :-D

octanegirl Sun 13-Jan-13 14:06:00

My granny died this morning. I'm so upset as I really wanted her to meet her great grandson.

CreepyCrawly Sun 13-Jan-13 14:25:44

So sorry to hear that octane xx

creepy that sounds like the start, exciting!

octane im so sorry to hear that hope you are ok x

lora something similar happened to me lady in local shop asked how much longer without realky looking and was quite apologetic when i told her i already had tge baby!

theboutiquemummy Sun 13-Jan-13 15:23:28

Oooh Octane big hugs n lots of love so sorry for you loss xox

Lora how loud are the farts ! Glad the hiccups mean good feed I wish they had a fuel tank that said full up x

salt1 Sun 13-Jan-13 15:47:45

so sorry for your loss octane xxxxx

Tugstonia Sun 13-Jan-13 16:32:04

So sorry octane, hope you're ok xx

Tugstonia Sun 13-Jan-13 16:37:08

Congrats to hormonal, happy and lostbobbles smile

Hope things kick off for you soon creepy. I've had a few period pains and back ache and yesterday had the teeniest, tiniest dot of bloody mucus but nothing since. Also getting daily phone calls from the PIL which is driving me and DP a bit mental!

Tugs might b best to unplug phone! i told everyone i was due a week later than i really was to avoid that as all others were late. backfired a bit when she arrived 3 weeks early and everyonr thought she was even earlier!

bealos Sun 13-Jan-13 17:24:35

I empathise tugs I had the MIL from New Zealand ringing up this morning 'just to check'. Sweet really though. She left us another number just in case they might miss something on the other side of the world.

I find that every time I ring someone now, they answer with "are you in labour?". Could get tiresome if it goes on for the next 3 weeks! DP also panics when he misses a call from me!!

Sorry to hear your sad news octane

So sorry, octane sad I lost both my grandfather and an uncle whilst pregnant with DS and I have every sympathy sad

SilverSixpence Sun 13-Jan-13 19:06:25

Congratulations to the new mums, I've got 9 days to go but really want this baby out early! In laws are back in Thursday and would love a night or two on our own with baby before they come! Ds was 5 days early too (due date is 22nd) so am hoping something will happen soon.

Hormonalhell Sun 13-Jan-13 19:44:43

My date of birth for Charlie is 12.1.12 but can't change it cos on phone smile

Thanks woody good luck everyone smile

Bunny222 Sun 13-Jan-13 23:03:28

More cramps but nothing else happening for me. DHs bday on thurs so he doesnt want bump to arrive then! I would be happy to just get started.

Baby still back to back, trying stretches and swimming to get him turned.

Any one had any success with this?

woody2313 Mon 14-Jan-13 07:45:46

Feel like baby's head has dropped today - much more difficult to walk, lots of pressure on pelvis... Still over a week til due date yet yesterday I had 2 phone calls and 4 texts asking how I was/recommending pineapple etc to get the birth going shock Had a wave of pain that I thought could've been a contraction yesterday, tried to contain excitement ... and wisely - that was 12 hours ago!! Must've been BH or a big kick, ha ha. smile

godzookey Mon 14-Jan-13 12:01:17

morning ladies,
So, a v depressing morning for me - having finally psyched myself up for the sweep, the midwife tried 3 times but i just couldn't handle it at all!! I do feel like i've let myself down, god if i can't handle an internal exam then how the hell am i supposed to give birth.

The midwife even said she thinks i should forget about birthing centre and just go straight to labour ward and get an epidural at 4cm dilated due to my low pain threshold and i think she's right. Feeling v v sad..

DH gone back to work now so i may just have to pour myself a largish glass of wine.....

CreepyCrawly Mon 14-Jan-13 12:09:58

Ah godz don't feel too bad. I'm putting off having a sweep for the same reason. I have a pretty high pain threshold (I think!) but it just terrifies me! I had a smear last year and hated it. Though I don't think we're actually meant to enjoy them. TMI but the only thing that ever goes inside me is DHs penis. No fingers, nothing else. Not ever.

When they do a sweep, do they use that horrible lever thingy like they do with a smear? Just thinking about it is making me cringe!

No excitement here, so I'm going to put my feet up and have a crisp sandwich followed by a Crunchie smile

Tugstonia Mon 14-Jan-13 12:18:03

Bunny mine was back to back at last mw appt and I've been doing all the techniques on spinningbabies.com and thought it had turned, but not 100% sure. Worth doing I reckon.

Woody thanks for keeping the list up to date! smile Sounds like things are going in the right direction for you. I've had lots of downward pressure and loads of discharge (sorry tmi) but nothing else seems to be happening, no contractions or BH or anything.

godz sorry you had such a shitty morning. The thought of a sweep and vaginal exams in general fills me with dread and makes me feel sick so you really have my sympathies.

I have booked an acupuncture appointment for Friday (due date) and hoping my practitioner will help things along a bit if nothing's happened by then.
