Hello all!

Random question but what happens when we all have had our babies - is that the end of our group!?

I was thinking about this earlier

@since2016 thanks for the new thread x

I had a try at having a trim down there as I have my midwife appt tomorrow and she’s going to take a swab to test for GBS. I could hardly see a thing 😳

@NotAsGreenAsCabbageLooking happy birthday xx

@welshweasel Congratulations.. such great news x

@AliceRR we have a lovely Facebook group that's migrated from MN if you want to join?

(Sorry just quickly lurking here as it came up on active threads! Don't think I've posted since the very early days but have been on the Fb group)

AliceRR Tue 22-Jan-19 22:51:15

@tinysalmon I’m on the Facebook group that came from this group if that’s what you mean? Makes more sense that that one would continue I guess - thanks 😊

@2019Mama 😂 I feel Your pain! Someone suggested using a mirror :-/

Since2016 Tue 22-Jan-19 22:55:26

We can always do a postnatal group for those (ie. me) who don’t do Facebook!

Yeah I don’t have FB either so postnatal group would be good. Especially as I’m a first timer and will have no clue what I’m doing once that little baby is placed in my arms! Lol 😂 x

Anyone else waking up to the ice kingdom? Be careful ladies looks really bad across the country.

I am hibinating away today other than a breast feeding class later at the hospital. Has anyone else had one? Its 4hrs long so unsure what to exspect tbh.

Place marking!

I'd be up for a new group 👍🏼

I can't believe that we'll be having our babies in this thread!! 🎉🎉🎉 x

Leonora94 Wed 23-Jan-19 06:56:49

Place marking 🥰 I’m willing to put money on this thread filling up before my baby is here 😂

MrsY87 Wed 23-Jan-19 07:45:07

Place marking...still no babies and contractions seem to have stopped 😩

MummyBM Wed 23-Jan-19 07:47:46

Has anyone experienced intense shooting pains in there boobs?! I’ve been leaking milk/colustrum for weeks and lots of it, so have just been hand expressing into bottles to relieve some pressure. Literally just gently squeezing my nipples and it comes out. But last night and this morning I have this intense sharp shooting pain in my left boob alongside a huge headache. The headache could be from the worst nights ‘sleep’ as I was up about 7 times last night. This pain is so uncomfortable in my boob. Anyone else had something similar?

Yakadee Wed 23-Jan-19 08:06:44

@MrsY87 - oh man! 😩

@MummyBM - I can't say I have, sorry. Sounds painful though. I haven't had any milk at all? X

MrsY87 Wed 23-Jan-19 08:16:26

@Yakadee I know! So frustrating!! On the plus side at least it might mean I can have a a couple of nights sleep at home in my own bed before they break my waters at the weekend!

Since2016 Wed 23-Jan-19 08:20:37

Oh @mrsy87 how annoying!!! But hopefully you’ll get some sleep?!

@MrsY87 - that sounds good! Fingers crossed x

Definitely up for a post baby group here - I’m not on Facebook either.

I was banished to the spare room as I’m so wriggly and have started snoring DH had to get up early for an important work thing. I didn’t mind as he had one of those wakeup lights so didn’t want to be woken up, and I wanted to see if the softer memory foam might help me sleep. It’s definitely much less uncomfortable when I’m rolling over so might stay in here! I got a diffuser too, I thought with the hearing etc the dry air might be making my breathing worse, I think it may have helped a little and might come in handy with the baby too so not wasted money.

Was definitely grouchy yesterday, cat is doing both our heads in. He’s stopped eating his normal food all together so wasted loads of money on it and has become so demanding and the last thing I want to do is play with him for hours. We are genuinely having to think about whether we can keep him as he can get very angry when he doesn’t get attention and claw up legs etc. I think we should have considered getting a kitten ages ago and maybe they could be friends and play (he’s too timid for another adult cat!). Somehow more cats seems like a stupid solution though! The cat used to be my friends so it’s a horrible decision to make sad

@welshweasel - congratulations!

My July 2016 group moved to a postnatal group and that was active for a while. It would be nice to have something like that again.

welshweasel Wed 23-Jan-19 09:08:21

No sleep but he’s very cute!

powkin Wed 23-Jan-19 09:15:23

@welshweasel - aww so so sweet!

maxiflump1 Wed 23-Jan-19 09:20:36

Aw @welshweasel he's beautiful : look at that scrummy little face!!

I'd be up for a post natal group on here too.

Sorry some of you are feeling anxious or grumpy. I'm sure it's just hormones and our bodies being exhausted.

Sorry if tmi but I seem to have quite a swollen and tender labia this morning! No idea what all that us about! Am 37+5 today and still waiting to hear when my section will be.....
