Ooo shiney new thread! I wonder if we will have any births in this one

StylishDuck Thu 26-Oct-17 00:00:36

New thread. Thanks! grin

I’ve not been very active recently. More of an occasional lurker. 30 weeks today!

LoobysMummy14 Thu 26-Oct-17 00:03:53

Counting down the weeks until Mat Leave, 8 weeks and counting! 29 weeks today and feeling VERY uncomfortable sad

shaaan1329 Thu 26-Oct-17 00:11:37

Can’t believe we’re on #6 already!

klaw87 Thu 26-Oct-17 03:28:00

Eek #6!

And I STILL have insomnia 🙄😴👻

klaw87 Thu 26-Oct-17 03:48:32

I don't know why there's a ghost emoji on that last post... confused

WLMcI Thu 26-Oct-17 08:00:49

@klaw very seasonal of you lol 😂 Solidarity on the insomnia, I wake up most nights around 3:30/ 4 and have to use a YouTube sleep meditation video to get back to sleep (which only works sometimes). Plus I have bad reflux at night as soon as I lie down, even propped up, so I have to stay awake and read as long as I can until it calms (4 hours after dinner, you would think it would be OK by then but no!)

31 weeks today! Maternity leave starts the 26th of November for me at 36 weeks and I am excited because I will have an entire remodelled house to clean, paint and move back into...So I won't be bored 😶 Got lots of hospital bag stuff and my birth plan sorted on my days off this week, starting to feel very real! I used the birth plan on the NHS website, just printed out the blank form and wrote on it.

ndo4000 Thu 26-Oct-17 08:26:50

Thanks for new thread!

Insomnia strikes again.... moved house yesterday and had to sleep on the sofa bed as the cleaners come today. Urgh. So tired. House is a MASSIVE project so slightly pooing myself. Hoping it’ll feel more manageable once it is clean (previous owners left it filthy angry).

Owl1011 Thu 26-Oct-17 08:40:00

Thanks for the new thread mills smile

I've also been waking up a lot at 3:30am recently and struggle to get back to sleep! interviewed all day yesterday for my maternity cover and it left me feeling really weird and threatened about someone else doing my job for 10 months! It sounds pathetic but I feel so strange about it! sad

millsbynight Thu 26-Oct-17 08:47:05

@Roseandbee that’s what I was thinking! I wonder if we’ll have any babies arrive on this thread. Eeeeeeep!!

klaw87 Thu 26-Oct-17 09:10:00

I do love a bit of Halloween haha I'm obviously getting prepared 😂

2am seems to be my witching hour and then I'm awake for a good few hours, I'll have a few good nights then a few bad ones - it's so frustrating! Just thankful I'm off work this week so I'll be able to nap later if I need too.

I started looking up hospital bag lists yesterday, I need to get a few bits (for me mostly, pads and cheap nighties etc) and then will probably get it packed as soon as poss so it's just ready then.

Birth plan wise I literally have no idea - think I'm going to wait until my nct classes so I'm a bit more informed although I do want to try not to have too much of a 'plan'

ChocoMunchi Thu 26-Oct-17 09:10:32

Actually made me a little emotional thinking about all our babies being born... how very exciting 😊💕

Do u know u can get gaviscon free on the minor ailments prescription scheme.

ChocoMunchi Thu 26-Oct-17 09:17:39

Just thinking about birth plans and wondered if anyone has noted about skin to skin contact with both Mum and Dad (if dad is there) following the birth. There’s lots of research into it helping with bonding, reducing PND and settling baby following the birth.

Most hospitals Midwifes should routinely offer this but I suspect it’s still something that should be written on your birth plan if it’s important to you.

klaw87 Thu 26-Oct-17 09:28:25

That's a good point @ChocoMunchi I hadn't thought of things like that to go on there, I also want to look into delayed cord clamping and stem cell banking too

SJ1989 Thu 26-Oct-17 11:24:09

@klaw87 I asked about cord blood donation but my hospital don't do it!

Seem to have a quiet baby yesterday and today still getting some movement when lay on my left side but not much an more gentle nudges rather than the usual kicks and bumps!

MegRam Thu 26-Oct-17 12:19:03

I'm having the same @SJ1989 - still feeling movement but it's much gentler than before. I was a bit worried but I've been tracking it this morning and she's definitely still wriggling, just not as string! I'm 30+4.

Anyone else feeling 'quieter' movements?

SJ1989 Thu 26-Oct-17 12:22:46

@Megram I'm not overly worried as still getting some movement but not nearly as much as softer, called the unit an they said get some lunch an nip in about 1:30 if it doesn't increase with it being over 24 hours

ForumUsername Thu 26-Oct-17 13:47:42

Thanks for the new thread 

@ChocoMunchi from what I’ve read on skin to skin with Dad it’s important within the first 24hours for bonding but also going forward too

We plan on the following
If all goes well skin to skin with me until baby feeds then with Dad until they move us

If I have to get a c section Dad will do all the skin to skin until I’m able

Think we’ll also try to have skin to skin with both parents over the first few weeks too
During and after feeds etc

Maybebaby2 Thu 26-Oct-17 14:33:39

@ForumUsername yes as much skin to skin contact over the first few weeks is definitely recommended.

I think I also read somewhere that if baby is offered skin to skin after birth they will naturally move and towards the breast for feeding. Please don’t worry I’m not that idealistic that this will happen but it would be interesting to see smile

Sounds like you have a really good plan and I hope to do the same with some infant massage as well.

Maybebaby2 Thu 26-Oct-17 15:40:43

Re birth plans, is it worth me making one before I have scan at 34 weeks to see if placenta has moved? If it hasn't moved I could be given a c section so any plan would go out the window. Do I wait and make it after scan? What are others with low lying placenta doing?

katmarie Thu 26-Oct-17 16:12:54

Yay new thread!

Talked to my midwife today and she was saying that skin to skin and delayed cord clamping is a standard part of the delivery process for our trust, and that they will give us at least an hour, as well as helping us to do the first feed in that time if baby is willing, so that’s wonderful. Odd as it may sound that’s what I’m setting my sights on, my reward for getting through the labour is that first hour with baby, and that will make it all worth it. I really can’t wait now, 28 weeks feels like I’m in the home stretch. grin

MrsPworkingmummy Thu 26-Oct-17 16:26:33

Woohoo. Thread 6! Not long now ladies.

I would definetly write skin-to-skin into your birth plan if that's what you'd like. I did last time (nearly 6 year ago now) and the midwives were so supportive. Literally, as soon as baby was born we had skin to skin and she fed for about 45 minutes - if really was a wonderful experience. I was absolutely terrified of getting PND as my own mother is very unemotional and very unloving, and I honestly think that helped the bonding process - for me as well as baby. Skin to skin will be an absolute must for baby 2!

MrsCorr Thu 26-Oct-17 16:37:44

Hi everyone, not been ok here in a while. With regards to the birth plan, the only thing I had in place last time was pain relief up to and including epidural lol.
It all went out the window when I needed an emergency c section but I did skin to skin as soon as I was in the recovery ward. My son latched on the first time I tried breastfeeding, it was amazing watching him know what to do at only minutes old! Breastfeeding didn’t work out for me but that memory is so precious to me. I also did a lot of skin to skin while I was in hospital, so did my husband and carried on doing it at home. The first few weeks they cuddle right into you 😍 it really is lovely.
Is anyone else in Scotland getting the baby box? Is anyone else in Scotland?? I ordered mine a few weeks ago, think a lot of it will come in handy.
