Chocomama1 Fri 12-Jul-13 21:17:16

Someone told me to tweak my nipples lol apparently this works

Reebok Fri 12-Jul-13 22:02:20

Lol ok I would try but my boobs hurt anyway!

I was due yesterday. This is my second baby. I'm roasting hot and pretty uncomfortable. I've had one sweep already which did nothing. I'm just hoping the baby will come soon!

Due on the 23rd... If one more person tells me I 'have a while to go yet' (MIL) I might scream smile

Due on the 18th, no signs yet. I'm booked in for an elc that day if I don't go into labour by then. DC1 was induced at 42 weeks so I'm pretty sure I'll be having the section.
Good luck to everyone. smile

Due on 6th July sad
Bored of waiting, really want to avoid an induction
Bought some evening primrose oil today and have been mainlining raspberry leaf tea ....

Hi, I'm also due 17th with my second and in slow labour.
I could have wrote your op myself lol

GivemeaCamembert Fri 12-Jul-13 22:47:10

Due on the 18th too, having lots of random twinges and pains but they never develop, so frustrating. Can't be doing with the heat and i've forgotten what my ankles look like!

TomDaleysTrunks Sat 13-Jul-13 05:18:52

Due on 27th. Had irregular contractions all yesterday afternoon / evening with lower back pain. Stopped at 11 last night but now can't sleep. So frustrated.

ReikiMummy Sat 13-Jul-13 10:31:12

Due date yesterday...
doused oneself in the aromatherapy oils from midwife yesterday...
Lower backache most of the day yesterday...
Seems to have gone again this morning though. smile

I think LO is just too comfy!

Isitme1 Sat 13-Jul-13 10:33:49

Had a lot of pain last night. Was in tears and couldn't move at all but then they just stopped hmm
Guessing its slow labour again.

Wow everyone...alot of us. If you give birth let us all know!!

This heat today is too much. I feel like a hot hippo already....slow labour is the worst!!!!

TomDaleysTrunks Sat 13-Jul-13 11:19:43

Isitme have you tried bouncing on a ball or a long walk? Hope things get going for you.
Few more twinges but nothing to get excited about!

cogitosum Sat 13-Jul-13 11:33:54

Due yesterday. Had a few twinges and a bit of a (ahem) clear out over the last few days (started a thread about it) but nothing else.

Actually feeling pretty good just really excited about meeting him! I've been walking a couple of miles a day and bouncing manically on the ball!

Isitme1 Sat 13-Jul-13 11:37:36

Tom I did go for a walk yesterday and I dont think dh will want me out in this heat today
Cogo ive had a bit of a clear out too so hoping something will start soon!

TomDaleysTrunks Sat 13-Jul-13 11:45:38

No in sat in the shade but have cleaned the spare room today. Seemed to help increase the twinges!

Chocomama1 Sat 13-Jul-13 11:49:14

Yes take it easy today ladies.... stay cool

Reebok Sat 13-Jul-13 12:22:12

Had same problem again isitme...it seems contractions like to start overnight so I don't sleep but fine in day. Been like this for two weeks. I just want this LO out! sad heat is killing me today and my crazy DH suggested we go for a walk to encourage baby out. I responded with a 'are you nutty?' look.

Isitme1 Sat 13-Jul-13 12:29:12

Im still very crampy but this is manageable. If I would of had another 10 mins of pain last night I would of gone to hospital.

Chocomama1 Sat 13-Jul-13 12:58:41

Yes my contractions are in the evening aswell...i wonder why this is??

gertrudestein Sat 13-Jul-13 13:39:55

I've also got that - not sure if it's wishful thinking? Or just stronger than usual BH? It's getting me down because I can't sleep at night because of the pain, then during the day nothing happens!

Jollyb Sat 13-Jul-13 13:45:32

Hi I'm due on the 27th but booked to have a section next Friday.

Had some cramps last night and went into a panic as have been in complete denial about the fact that I could go into labour before my section date.

Finding today really tough - don't want to be near anyone. Feel like a mother cat who just wants to be left alone in a cupboard until she gives birth. It's taking all my effort to stop snapping at DP and DD.

Six days to go . . . . ,
