can't really define how I feel, bit tearful, very tired, strong bracton hicks (nothing new there!) and really breathless. Wonder if things might be happening. Baby no three. Has anyone else had feelings anything like this?

<sends birthing vibes>

BH made me breathless anyway and by 38 weeks I bet you are tired! I hope it is a sign that things are moving on for you but who knows - stubborn babies come when they want! ;)

Good luck

My DC3 will be 3 weeks old tomorrow. This time 3 weeks ago I was feeling really agitated, stroppy and generally odd. I had been having strong braxton hicks for weeks and when contractions started that evening for ages I thought 'wow these braxton hicks are really strong' before my DH said 'er do you think they might actually be contractions?!'. I laboured through that night and my gorgeous little boy arrived at 7.30am the next morning.

So... maybe it will be the case for you! Come on baby!!

Thanks! For some strange reason I had thought I'd have the baby this weekend! Dd was early, but I never thought that ds would be, so not quite sure why I felt that. Anyway, have to make sure my head doesn't now feel "late" otherwise it could be a very long three weeks or so! Feel much better today, so maybe i'd just overdone things a bit. Congrats on your little one, monkey. How's it going with three so far?
