Hi all I'm looking for mums who are 37 week to share experience with

milz2014 Wed 23-Apr-14 20:21:14

I will be 37 weeks tomorrow if that's close enough?

samandkat Wed 23-Apr-14 20:26:17

Yeah I guess lol what's on day or should I say a few hours lol

milz2014 Wed 23-Apr-14 20:27:19

Yeah, and it's being a naughty rugrat and measuring a week ahead! How you finding it?

samandkat Wed 23-Apr-14 20:30:21

Hell on earth lol I'm in constant pain and no one can do anything about it so I can't wait until d day mine is a footling breech so I'm booked for c section on 12 may I so can't wait

milz2014 Wed 23-Apr-14 20:33:06

I'm booked for section on the 8th May. Know what you mean about constant pain, my spine doesn't tolerate weight gain thanks to a previous spinal injury so am being particularly mardy with everyone. The next 2 weeks, or two and a bit weeks in your case need to fly by!

JuniorMint Wed 23-Apr-14 20:34:32

Hi, I'm 37 weeks plus 2 days. Due date 12th May (same as your section samandkat!)

Feeling generally fine, though heart burn and indigestion causing me bother especially at night- can barely lie down! Been to the hospital today for blood pressure monitoring but all was fine.

I am booked for a growth scan on Mon (when I will be 38 weeks) because community midwife measured me 37cm but hospital midwife said she could only get 35cm.

samandkat Wed 23-Apr-14 20:36:26

Oh tell me about it I could scream I can't bend because my bump is so massive ( anyone would think I was carrying twins but I'm not) my pre op is on 8th may I wish you luck is this your first

milz2014 Wed 23-Apr-14 20:37:53

Yup! First and only one lol! My pre-op is 5th, great, bank holiday buses blurgh! Is it your first as well?

samandkat Wed 23-Apr-14 20:39:58

I got heart burn and aching legs hips and spine feel like they are snapping and bump is gonna pop also tightnings are unbearable at times I'm glad your blood pressure is ok

samandkat Wed 23-Apr-14 20:41:19

milz2014 Wed 23-Apr-14 20:43:24

I feel for you samandkat, can't imagine feeling like this with an almost 3 year old!

peeapod Wed 23-Apr-14 20:43:45

milz2014 Wed 23-Apr-14 20:45:05

Woohoo peeapod! I went out and bought boots out of maternity pads this mornings - glamorous this isn't it?

samandkat Wed 23-Apr-14 20:45:08

It's not easy but it will be worth it in the end not long now

CbeebiesIsAboutToPop Wed 23-Apr-14 20:45:53

Hi, I'm on number 3 dd1 is 3 and dd2 is 2! 37+ 4 and have sweep on Saturday and induction following Friday. Really hoping I go naturally before induction though, although I just wan this baby out so will happily be induced! grin

samandkat Wed 23-Apr-14 20:48:25

Not only me who's impatient then lol I'm more than done with pregnancy I'm considering caster oil but I'm not sure lol

milz2014 Wed 23-Apr-14 20:50:11

Dare I ask what caster oil does?!

CurlsLDN Wed 23-Apr-14 20:53:14

Hey, I'm 38 weeks today. Have you seen the antenatal threads? You'll find lots of people at the same stage as you in the May one, here

sarahquilt Wed 23-Apr-14 21:04:50

I'll be 37 weeks in a couple of days. Feel like I'm carrying around a bowling ball! Can't sleep for the life of me - diarrhoea, sweating and heartburn at night!

Nades84 Wed 23-Apr-14 21:08:14

Hiya another one here smile 37+4 got my section booked for the 6th of May, can't wait! Really hoping I go into labour before then though so they can whisk me in, fed up with being the size of a house and having to get DP or DS to put my socks on for me haha! Never mind the constant SPD pain, heartburn, no sleep, BH's and everything else that goes with it, oh the joys...good job it's all worth it in the end grin

samandkat Wed 23-Apr-14 21:09:16

Caster oil is an old way of inducing labour by causing the bowel to contact and your uterusthey by triggering labor that or you can use raspberry leaf tea that apparently ripens and softens your cervix they by triggering labour

samandkat Wed 23-Apr-14 21:11:24

Does any one know what they are having I'm having a girl after having a boy so I will have one of each whoop

milz2014 Wed 23-Apr-14 21:13:40

Nope, I'm getting a surprise! Eeek!

Nades84 Wed 23-Apr-14 21:16:26

One of each will be lovely samandkat we're having a surprise, already got DS who's nearly 13 (arrgh!) I would like a girl, too much testosterone in this house lol but ultimately I'm not bothered either way!
