Hope you all find this!

Interesting discussion at NCT class: apparently, more midwives are booked at full moon, as more babies are born then! We checked, and our full moon will be 17th May (my original due date, revised to 12th May). It will be really interesting to see how many are born early or late to coincide...

yey new thread!

not much to say here, did some studying this morning then went to town but forgot to put my support bandage on and came home in agony.
Have midwife in morning to see if BP gone down (not likely as done next to no bed rest!) and then have physio at 3pm. inbetween though i do get to have a lovely pub lunch with some very good friends!!!!

Sorted out my shed today and found carseats (2nd and 3rd stage), bouncer, stairgate, small stroller buggy and portable highchair from DD and also found my sisters gorgeous bouncy pram....its beautiful but i just dont have the need for it so am selling it with sisters permission (she didnt want it either!) lol
Plan to do a car boot sunday with my sister to help raise funds so we can book a hummer for my BIL 40th birthday in June to take us out on a wild night on the town!

What's going on with the stats page? Every time it updates I've been edited out! sad Are people copying the most recent list? I'm posting from phone so can't really check properly.

Bonkerz Wed 16-Mar-11 20:07:57

new stats sounds good.

Ohh new thread!

I love the title and thanks Loopy so much for the advise.
I really want to give it a go but only know one person who has done it, my MW said disappointingly we have the lowest rates in Wales where I live.

Has anyone BF after having a nipple piercing? I took it out about 2 years ago but have noticed I 'leak' more from the holes on the side?

DH bought me a new iPad so this is my first post from it!

cowboylover Wed 16-Mar-11 20:09:54

I am up for the new stats as well x

MummyWilliams Wed 16-Mar-11 20:27:04

cowboylover I saw something about nipple piercing and feeding on embarassing bodies. All I can remember is that it shouldn't be affected. But like you are experiencing you might leak more on that side.

MummyWilliams Wed 16-Mar-11 20:27:22

I'd like a new stats thread too!

cowboylover Wed 16-Mar-11 23:09:29

Cheers mummywilliams!! The things we don't think of when having these things done at 18!!!

I didn't want to google it as always comes back really scary x

I had to have my belly button piercing removed when pregnant with DD. They say you shouldn't get tattoos on your back (epidural level). Can cause problems with having it done.

cowboylover...I have a nipple piercing...took it out when pg with DS and had no problems what so ever with leaking...put it back in afterwards and now took it out again!
I have a tattoo on my belly also but thankfully, even though I've got huge both times it's still perfectly shaped! A few wavy patterns through it but actually looks quite good lol.

Anybody else waking up really early? I'm bright eyed around 6:30 every morning waiting for DS to roll out of bed lol....I wouldn't mind so much but it means I'm falling asleep by 9pm!

Is anybody here planning a home birth?? I am hopefully having DD at home but wanted to ask people what I should be thinking about in preparation? Also, should I let my neighbors know? Don't want anybody thinking I'm being murdered! Lol

Hello all, sorry I've not been on for a while but things have not slowed down since the wedding in December as we're now renovating a house and move at the end of the month! Thanks Sesame for a new thread, have saved it and once mat leave starts I will be watching eagerly to see who gives birth first. Someone in my nct class has already had hers!

Not recommended if you have a quick second stage either I think? I was pushing for over 2 hrs with DS so think I will start the tea at 32 weeks. Not that it made much difference first time around ... hmm

If I remember rightly - Holland & Barratt do a Raspberry Leaf Tea with Raspberry extract which tastes ok. I've heard people say the raspberry leaf tea on its own is vile.
