jessplussomeonenew Sat 19-Apr-14 09:51:25

Ah, there you all are.... smile

PoppySeedBun Sat 19-Apr-14 14:00:12

Well done kitty for starting a new thread.
No news here sad
Found this link on another thread indicating that even with a few contractions it could still be weeks to go ...
m.birth.com.au/physical-signs-of-prelabour/differences-between-prelabour-contractions-and-first-stage-labour#A2H

So trying not to get ahead of myself.

Marking place

BlindKitty Sat 19-Apr-14 15:18:57

puppy 4 1/2 weeks to go eek! Am starting to worry (mostly about work tbh and not getting stuff done. Do need to start winding down now though

poppy oh really? Although didn't merk and thunder have a few early ones and popped our their dds shortly after? Just saying wink

longlegged come on in and tell us your story smile

morerummorefun Sat 19-Apr-14 15:19:14

hi, I yhink I may have joined this a while ago but it's a very fast moving thread... im 33 weeks tomorrow but have got an irritable uterus so mw say poss chance of going early (seriously doubt it though dc1 was late)
Scary to think its almost over and is over for some of you - congratulations btw!

Angelina77 Sat 19-Apr-14 15:56:08

Afternoon all, I'm lounging in bed while partner is at the park with step-daughter. Very uncomfortable now, can barely lean forward as it feels like there's something crushing my rib cage constantly, and always on the right hand side.

Have any of you 30+ weekers felt the baby drop down at all? I hope that helps when it finally happens, not sure I can wait another 8-9 weeks though.

Hi longlegged, same due date as me! Race you smile

BlindKitty Sat 19-Apr-14 17:36:15

morerum did you have a slightly different name before?

angel hope weekend with sd isn't too tiring!
Think my bump is starting to drop but still getting a LOT of indigestion and high feelings so not sure.

morerummorefun Sat 19-Apr-14 17:44:51

blindkitty yes my nn was donna1984, my bumps dropped its lovely to be able to breath again. . . but then theres the waddle! Heartburn still an excellent issue for me also im taking ranitidine 2x daily and for most it helps but the occasional glug of gaviscon helps haha!

morerummorefun Sat 19-Apr-14 17:46:09

excellent? recurrent even! stupid phone blush

BlindKitty Sat 19-Apr-14 21:39:29

Just sorting my chill out music ready for the big day (assuming I go to chosen birthing centre with iPod dicking station). Any suggestions?

BlindKitty Sat 19-Apr-14 21:40:07

Or docking station haha!

Tallyra Sat 19-Apr-14 22:37:48

Haha kitty!!

Welcome newbies! Tell us your story...

Angelina77 Sun 20-Apr-14 00:42:58

Haha, nice typo smile

Weekend has been good so far, thanks. It's the longest she's stayed with us and it's settled into normal family time, which is nice.

BlindKitty Sun 20-Apr-14 04:29:20

That's great news angel, your obviously putting your mummy skills to good use already!

So, as you can see I'm in the 4.00 club again (hip pain oh and now I'm hungry grrr). Only thing that usually helps us getting into spare bed but I've obviously pissed Dh with my tossing and turning as he's beaten me to it!

BlindKitty Sun 20-Apr-14 04:51:19

* youre

PuppyMummy Sun 20-Apr-14 07:56:39

kitty hope u got back to sleep.

Happy Easter all, hope u hav a good day.

Sun is out here. no particular plans except some gardening!

BlindKitty Sun 20-Apr-14 09:00:23

puppy is the weather better near you then? Looks like rain here!

We're off to the rugby (joy) although have our friend and her little boy with us, who is literally th most amazing kid in the world!

Bunnygirlie Sun 20-Apr-14 09:45:12

Ooh an dicking station kitty I expect that will be the last thing on your mind when giving birth!
Hope you are feeling better.

Horrid start to the morning here, sickness always seems worse after a late night when I've overdone it. Spent half hour hugging the loo whilst trying to stop a double nosebleed. Oh what fun! tbusad

Hope you are all having a better Easter Sunday! tbusmile
