Yay!! Well done Bubble & KPT thanks smile

Thumbwitch Sat 29-Sep-12 06:51:30

I think one more in antenatal, there are still a lot of us left to pop!

Congratulations Bubble! thankswine

Littleplasticpeople Sat 29-Sep-12 06:19:54

Congrats bubble thanks

Sounds like you are doing a great job Pinpan smile

Now then, today seems like a good day to have a baby ...<ignores the fact I've had no signs whatsoever>

ThunderboltKid Sat 29-Sep-12 05:48:59

Weesooty the itching sounds awful...maybe as you've had such a shit pregnancy you'll get a lovely easy baby??

Pinpan hang in's new to both of you so there's bound to be hiccups along the way. Wishing you many more peaceful moments!

Bubble glad you got into theatre on time! She's gorgeous; enjoy the squishy cuddles and hope you have a speedy recovery.

Is the new thread going in post-natal or are we staying in ante-natal for one more?

pinpan Sat 29-Sep-12 05:26:05

Yep, jinxed it. confusedsadhmm

Bubblebell1 Sat 29-Sep-12 05:20:35

Just a quickie to say baby bubble arrived at 1:36am via emcs.

Had a show wednesday and it seemed to continue over 2 days. Regular strong tightenings every 7 mins until this evening when they turned into pressure and pain in my bum and cervix.
Labour was quick and intense and contractions were every 3 mins by the time they took me to theatre.
she pooped inside so now being monitored.
I'm ok just exhausted and have sore boobs. She hasn't stopped feeding since I got out of theatre!!

She's gorgeous and I'm smitten. Good luck to all you girls left to pop grin

pinpan Sat 29-Sep-12 02:36:25

Pssst - that's two textbook wake/feed/change/feed/sleep sessions in a row. There's hope! grin <jinxed it now> <slinks off for a nap>

pinpan Sat 29-Sep-12 01:02:45

Good luck bubblebell! And congrats/good luck to the new babies and contracting ladies.

The womble is currently running on a wail from midnight til 4 am kind of a schedule, because Bad Mummy doesn't recognise the I'm overtired signals. But we're getting there, I can see a light at the end of the tunnel when I've had a couple of hours sleep, and she's adorable in the peaceful moments. Alas, my stitches have gone nasty so I'm on antibiotics (and sitting down very carefully), and we might be in for a bout of baby diarrhoea as a result, but heck, she produces so much poop that I'm not sure I'll even notice! grin

Maybe one of you bored-waiting-for-labour girls could set up Gizzy's awesomely named new thread in the post natal area, and we can decamp there when we get to the bottom of the page. I'd do it, but I've only got half a brain, and I can hear the womble waking up... wink

WeeSooty Sat 29-Sep-12 00:28:13

Good luck bubblebell!!! grin

Bubblebell1 Sat 29-Sep-12 00:18:08

Hi all. Just to let u know I'm in labour and waiting for a theatre slot. Hopefully 1 is free before I have this bubba

WeeSooty Fri 28-Sep-12 22:18:09

Evening all smile

Will try to catch up, not quite with it tonight! Itching is dirving me completely mental.

Misspolly congratulations! And I love that name! Hope you are both well.

Winnie I love your birth story!

Squiggly Happy Birthday! And good luck!!!

Heartbeep Congratulations!

Goodsense It is great getting a new kitchen, I’m so pleased with mine, just like standing in the middle of it admiring it all!!

Ok, we seem to be stacking up babies, can I be next please?

Well I’m feeling pretty rubbish today, this PUPPS thing is the worst thing I have ever experienced. I am sooooo itchy, I feel like I could scratch my skin off! Doc prescribed some non-steroid cream and it works for a few hours then goes back to being itchy. I’m struggling tonight, I don’t understand why some people breeze through pregnancy and I seem to be just lumbering from one crap symptom to the next. Feel sh*t at being pregnant and worrying if I’m so bad at being pregnant how will I be a good mum?!?! DH is doing a brilliant job at being there for me but I feel he must be thinking how crap I am at this as well.

Sorry feeling sorry for myself tonight!

In other possible labour symptoms… My bump is rock solid today.. what does that mean?? Come on baby!!!

GizzyBoo Fri 28-Sep-12 18:11:58

Good point thunder....will get it removed.

ThunderboltKid Fri 28-Sep-12 17:59:27

Gizzy I'm wondering whether it might be better not to put baby names up unless a poster announces it on the thread themselves? I would put mine on Facebook but not on here as it will make me too identifiable IYSWIM.

It was KPT083 - little girl born lunchtime today (she went in to be induced on Sunday). Gorgeous little baby smile

cakes82 Fri 28-Sep-12 15:46:26

39 wks today here too, sweep booked for a week tomorrow if no sign of baby. I'm getting fed up of waiting now, have had BH and a few peculiarly placed niggly pains but nothing that would suggest baby imminent. Was 2/5 engaged on Monday so heading right way at least.

Congrats to the new mums, hope everyone is feeling relatively ok, whatever stage your at.

There has been a little girl born today but I'm not sure which MN and FB names go together.

The full moon in Northern Hemisphere is 3.20am GMT Sunday so that might encourage the babies hmm Have a good weekend everyone!!

Heartbeep Fri 28-Sep-12 14:39:04

Thanks beeble and everyone else for the well wishes. I'm just so relieved DS is here & I can't stop kissing him grin DD is 3 and she can't stop staring at him & stroking him, our house is just so full of loveliness today smile

Come on October babies, we're all waiting to hear about you!

Best of luck ladies, won't be long.

Beeblebear Fri 28-Sep-12 14:00:36

Good morning all.

Congrats to heartbeep! I do remember you from way back on the thread, nice to hear from you.

Happy full term day to me! 37 weeks today. Now if baby would wake yp and give me a squirm, that would be great! He is probaby still dozy from the tylenol I took last night. Finally got a half decent rest though with this cold and sinus headache.

Willpop in again soon. Ttfn

Thumbwitch Fri 28-Sep-12 13:56:29

Congratulations MissPolly and Heartbeep! thanksthanks
Squiggly - FX all goes well for you too and you have your little bundle very soon. smile

I'm feeling really lumpen today and it was fecking hot - 34degrees!!! shock Mind you it's due to storm heavily and the temp should be back down to around 18deg tomorrow, with a bit of luck. Can't stand being this size and hot, it's foul.

Feet have swollen up again - prob due to sitting on the train for 4h in total (2 each way) to go and have my back seen to - but it's worth it to fix up the SPD! Very sore at the mo but in the next couple of days it will feel sooooo much better.

I think the baby has gone vertical but not sure, I really hope so though!

RnB Fri 28-Sep-12 13:53:57

Congrats Winnie and Heart and good luck to anyone in early labour smile

I couldn't sleep last night because of painful contractions, but they have pretty much stopped today sad

goodsenseofdirection Fri 28-Sep-12 12:37:10

fluffy and gizzy that sounds pretty uncomfortable. Hope those little ones decide that head down is comfy asap!

weesooty how are you doing? Have they managed to give you anything to combat the itchiness?

Great birth story winnie it all went so quickly - or at maybe the MW just got it a bit wrong confused on the timings.

elvis i'm at about the same stage as you - 36+6 here so potentially got another 5 weeks to go which seems like forever. no signs of any kind of tightenings just yet.

Congrats heartbeep and good luck squiggle - come back and keep us posted on your baby news.

loopy i'm feeling much better today thanks! grin can start enjoying my leave. Or at least supervise the kitchen installation first hand wink which is very satisfying!! Good luck with your last 6 days at work - will you be able to take it easy a bit?

GizzyBoo Fri 28-Sep-12 12:35:13

Happy due date msinterpret grin

The clary sage doesn't smell the greatest to be honest. I mix it with lavender to help. Its not a bad smell though. I got mine off ebay. Was only a fiver!
Jasmin oil is also a good one to try.

Saying that after a week of doing everything but drink the stuff this wee one is still showing no signs of moving!

39 weeks today hmm

Good luck Hetty x

Msinterpret Fri 28-Sep-12 10:11:28

Hello all, long time no see blush

Exciting to hear about all the new mummies! Congratulations all with thanksthanksthanks and not a little envy - it's my due date today.

SO far feeling quite chilled; think because contractions with DD began the equivalent of this evening so I'm thinking, 'Well, my babies are just obviously very obedient and can already tell the time/date from in utero...' but ask me tomorrow and I may be a little more cross!

Anyone who has used it, what's clary sage oil like? Does it resemble any other oils? Was thinking of getting some yesterday but £££ and didn't want to be repulsed for that price! grin
