Hey I'll join you in the new thread ... so how many have we had to date, surely we must hold the record for most threads for an ante-natal month grin

The cupcake/fairy cakes sound scrummy and I may have to make some over the weekend (can't be bothered today ... now there's a surprise -LOL)

Mum2b2BabyRoo Thu 20-Mar-08 11:44:27

They are scrummy! Just eaten another one... better slow down or there will be none left for DH when he gets home! Yay - Bank Holiday weekend! I get 4 days solid with DH!

Carey87 Thu 20-Mar-08 11:44:28

Hi everyone,

BR - I have a dry tickly cough too atm, hope it gets better. When you said RL I actually read it as Real Life.. shows I spend too much time chatting on the net really. Also.. 'if the baby doesn't come before Weds' ? Wow! 1/5ths engaged is the same as deeply engaged!!

Ellie - GRRRRRRR to that doctor!!! I'll give him a f%&!ing hunch by the time I am finished with him!!!!

That was going to be my next question! So 1/5 means very engaged, while 4/5 means not so engaged? Is that rite?

TheMaskedPoster Thu 20-Mar-08 11:50:42

oh - lucky you Mum2b2BabyRoo getting to spend four days with DH. My DH is working on Friday (which is good as the money is needed at the moment due to us wanting to upgrade our wheels) - but the rest of the weekend he is around ... saying that friends are coming over on Saturday for a 'Footie extravaganza'(DH's words - not mine hmm) so he'll be LOL-ing with man-pal all evening whilst I try not to be boring and head off to bed to early! And one DSS is coming over which is great as he is superb with DD, therefore giving me a break!

Oh and the other plus side - a GREAT excuse to eat copious amounts of choccie!! yipski

TheMaskedPoster Thu 20-Mar-08 11:51:58

Good Question Carey - I'm not sure of what that means etc too...

ThePFJ Thu 20-Mar-08 11:54:45

LOL... sorry VS. Kill me now.

VictorianPASqualor Thu 20-Mar-08 11:56:23

Hey Ladies, someone, I think it was BR asked how the telly thing went, well, basically, I went to meet up with 4 MNers and we did lunch whilst being filmed and talking about MN/baby stuff.
Afraid to say it was mainly me talking (big gob) blush

Then the tv crew came round my house and I had to answer loads of questions in front of the 'puter whilst DS was jumping all over me!grin

Took about 2 hours for the interview and obvs they'll edit it down to what they want. I think I talked constantly about VBACs and breastfeeding though blush I wasn't very nice about Health Visitors either hmm

What a bloody night I had last night, ctx ALL night, started at about 9pm and I was leaning over my birthing ball, they werent really painful, more uncomfortable but when I went to bed they kept waking me up, was determined to get some sleep though, I was not going to be going anywhere without a few hours kip as I was shattered! Seem to have stopped now though so feck knows what it was, obviously not labour.

VictorianPASqualor Thu 20-Mar-08 11:57:06

Lol, you didn't add Ted's weight, so mine was better <sticks out tongue>

ThePFJ Thu 20-Mar-08 11:57:34

I like VS's better. I seem to having big spikey pains at the bottom of my tummy on and off. This better not be labour.
>.<

What do people describe contractions as feeling like?
I heard you can get them at the base of your belly or at the top, or at the sides... OR all over?
Is that true?

Carey87 Thu 20-Mar-08 11:59:49

ok - need answers!

1/5 engaged - start line or finish line???

Contractions - what do they feel like??? (and I have never had any period pains so no idea what they feel like! sorry blush)

northeastmummy Thu 20-Mar-08 12:00:31

BR - this is from a while back now but I had lots of movements from DD1 when I was in labour. It was a funny one because I was already dilating and having contractions then they broke my waters and put me on a drip to induce me. Before they broke my waters I was having 3 contractions every 10 minutes (although I couldn't feel them at that stage) and she was certainly wriggling. Maybe not as much as normal though.

ThePFJ Thu 20-Mar-08 12:01:01

Finish line.
1/5th and 0/5ths = DEEPLY engaged.

Carey87 Thu 20-Mar-08 12:01:25

Thank you!!

OP’s posts: |
VictorianPASqualor Thu 20-Mar-08 12:01:29

It's hard to describe, mine are like the braxton hicks but with backache similar to period pains, my whole stomach doesnt hurt, just parts of it, and different parts each time, like sharp pains, last night they were mainly quite low.

PortAndLemon Thu 20-Mar-08 12:03:13

Just to complicate matters, you can also get contractions in your back if you are in the early stages of back labour.

Carey87 Thu 20-Mar-08 12:03:49

Oh ok - all last night i was getting like an 'ache' at the bottom of my stomach and lower back ache but it just kinda kept coming and going. Didnt think anything of it as I'm only just over 35 weeks.

OP’s posts: |
VictorianPASqualor Thu 20-Mar-08 12:04:58

Imagine you have an icky tummy, and you are about to go to the toilet to erm .... release your bowels blush Like that.

ThePFJ Thu 20-Mar-08 12:05:02

How to describe a period pain.. its like a burning 'grainy' horrible hurty pain down there and around your lower belly I guess.

My back is killing me now VS and have had another bout of spikey pains. Cant be labour though. Am determined its just body revving up. Will tell you all if they continue.

Carey87 Thu 20-Mar-08 12:06:19

Imagine you have an icky tummy, and you are about to go to the toilet to erm .... release your bowels Like that - thats what it was like last night!!

Oh well, whatever happens happens, pretty sure its not though, probably just brain wanting it because of DP SIL

When they say 4/5th it means the midwife can feel 4/5th of the babys head, So 1/5th means it is far engaged.

I looked it up the other day!
