Due in August thread... Part 7!(768 Posts)
We're on safari with the labour spotting signs... How long till the next baby arrives?
Pull up a birthing ball, sup some raspberry leaf tea and tuck into the 'big boy pineapple balti'. We're on the home straight!
<parks big bump --and arse-->
I'm end of the line welcome ambi, your 4 days before me
No more que jumping like the naughty August 11 ladies, lol.
Sounds good who said about pains?? Can't be arsed to look on prev thread lol,
I'm not due til 31st but had funny goings on last week or so, braxton hicks really stepped up a notch then I had the odd 'ahem' leak, then last night I wake up at half five to a deep backache that radiated to the front making my bump go very tight, these were every ten mins and then poof they vanished!! My baby is back to back so just wondered if it was braxton hicks but different to my other two babies because if the position of bubs. Very strange 'tmi alert' went to loo and had some very strange lumps of discharge but weren't like a show I don't think. Third babies are meant to be monkeys apparently and this one is Definately taking full advantage of that fact and playing me up! U would think I'm a pro by now but I am in fact useless and do not have a clue........no matter how much I google ;)
Oh, marking place with Cadbury's Fingers. Thanks for setting up Thread 7! x
Hiya justine and everyone.. I feel more clueless this time than I did with DD. I was induced so have no idea what "natural" labour feels like. Don't know if I've had BH, thought I may have had a show last week but now I'm doubting it. Getting all sorts of shooting pains then turns out to be wind. Its driving me mad. My hands are only now starting to swell and my knuckles are sore. I'm so ready to have this baby right now. The thought of being overdue is frustrating too and I'm worried about missing DDs first days at school. Ok moan over - apart from all that it's been a fairly unproblematic pregnancy.
Thank god I've one more week at work, I'm exhausted. My cousin had a baby boy yesterday, he's so gorgeous. even though I'll have my own in a few weeks!
skim read thread 6 to find out what I've missed.
Hm, I'm getting bored of TV and symptom watching now. I'm analysing every little twinge but with SPD and other aches and pains I can't decide what is interesting and what is same old same old. Thought I might be getting period cramps earlier but decided it was just my trousers digging in! MiL back from hols in France so I've been given official permission to get on with it!
Welcome Ambi sorry for being a whinge but I'm 40+3 and fed up!
Same here ambi my eldest starts school on the 4th September and I will be seriously peeved if I have to turn up there still pregnant!!!
Same as u I haven't had any problems as such just with hips and back and feel like such a meanie that I can't even walk kids to the local park I was induced with my first and my second was born super quick (45 mins) at 6 in morning so I'm wondering if I slept thru the first niggles. So I have no idea what I'm looking out for just clutching at straws, second baby was born at 38 weeks so this one coming at 37 /38 weeks would be nice ( think I'm dreaming big lol) I've really had enough now shouldn't moan about being preggas but this one is deffo my last!! I'm far too impatient!!
Glad everyone's doing well <sits and drums fingers waiting for next baby to be born> ;)
MrsM Why did you have to mention Cadbury fingers? Grumble...
Anyone know what the period pains are? I once heard that period pains ate actually mini contractions. If so, I guess they are more feelable BJ
Oooh. BJ?! No no. None of that, thank you very much! I meant BH. Braxton Hicks. Crikey

That's what I had last night frilly, but I get them worse if I need to make wind or the ahem other lol.
This pregnancy stuff is so annoying!! Just one of u needs to go into labour and give us a update like every ten minutes so we can cross symptoms off our list! hamster frilly any takers? I need entertaining!!
Currently laying on my bed (nest) debating whether I can iron in here with minimum effort!! X
MrGeres I came on here to post pretty much the exact same thing as you! I've been waddling like a duck all day, should have seen the mess of me trying to play with DS and clean up after he spilt dinner on the floor.
I would love this baby to come within this week as I'm soooo fed up being pregnant, thanks very much.
Problem is, I have a close relation who is due her first this week and has had no signs that labour is imminent. I know for sure she will be if I pop first (even though this is my DC2). I know there isn't anything either of us can do to really speed up, or hold back our babies arriving, but it is playing on my mind a little.
Marking place here...thread 7, wow! There's bound to be lots of babies on this thread
Just had a lovely Sunday dinner with my mum and dad as DP is still away. Really enjoyed it even though I definitely can't eat as much as usual!
Whoops posted too early...
Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday evening and getting to relax.
Just marking my place! It's been a long time now since I last posted as had a few family things going on and completely lost track of the thread as it was moving so quickly!
My friends threw me a baby shower today, was very nice and got lots lots of lovely presents! We are now sorted for everything so my baby has permission to arrive as soon as it likes now!
Spent today cuddling my friends 5 day old - so cute! Seriously made me want mine out so that I don't have to give him/her back!!
Also my friend who is a student midwife was down for a visit so I asked her to feel how engaged babe is as I've definately felt more pressure down there since last check and wanted to know if it was my imagination - 3/5 palpable, which compares to 4/5 palpable on Wednesday so moving along!!
And here's the link to the postnatal thread, for whoever is next.. how exciting, can't wait to see you all over there..
Thread 7!!! Oh my goodness... I really hope I get to meet my baby this thread
mrsM my low down pains are shooting pains in my cervix which I think is pressure from the baby weighing everything down. I'm hoping it's a good sign that he's engaging because walking today has been a challenge! It has felt like he is going to drop out at any moment. No such luck though
How very dare you mention cadbury fingers! You have started a craving!!
Frilly it would seem you have a lot of sex on the brain lol. Go have some for me please
Justine my pains are worse when I have wind . I get all excited and it turns out to be that lol.
<marks place with shortbread fingers>
Another TMI : my right breast is leaking clear fluid and back pain all day please tell me its a sign 39 today!!!
DH and I ate a whole box in about 2 seconds flat. I'm a devil for them. Sorry about that x
Well it looks like I'll be inaugurating with the first thread 7 baby tomorrow morning! I'm very nervous, so wished I could've done it naturally but hey ho, just doing what's best for LO.
Signet, I share your feelings about impending motherhood and the sense of doom... I keep thinking they'll cut me open, rumage around and say "nope, nothing in there, false alarm!" I'm crazy I know, but it all feels so surreal that I keep thinking I've imagined the whole pregnancy...
I'm off to bed for an early night, if I ever manage to sleep, as we're having a very early start. See you all on the other side...
Oh and if the already mummies who have had c-sec pop in and see this, any tips for post c-sec and recovery would be appreciated (or actually any of you who already have kids and have had c-sec)
Good luck Chic!! I'm do excited for you x
