Nearly 35 weeks now. Loads of pain in pelvis and pressure like it's 'full'.
Woken up today and can't stop pooing (sorry for tmi) but not upset stomach iykwim.
Strong uncomfortable braxton hicks every 20 mins.
Just been feeling generally crap last few days, no energy and like I'm coming down with something.
Can't sleep properly and all of a sudden feel very pregnant.

Just a self indulgent wail really as I can't do this for possibly 7 more weeks- I'll lose the plot!!

Hi Ginger and ilove

I was a blubbering mess yesterday too!

Hairdresser went fine - I am SO pleased I went as I had a disastrous haircut about 10 weeks ago and she has managed to fix it so it looks nice again smile

Still mild pains and (sorry TMI) lots of show still appearing.

Planning a chicken curry for tonight with pineapple for pudding.

Have tried to persuade DH to DTD but so far no action in that regard....) ;)

Ginger try and get some rest. Might help a little.

Lairy glad the hairdressers went well. That waa quick! My hair normally takes 3 hours!

Ooo still having a show!! That's better than nothing! if dh won't do anything try solo. An orgasm causes uterusto contract

Just realised hes not moved a lot today. Ive had 1 kick. Since 11ish

GingerRodgers Sat 02-Aug-14 15:39:10

Lairy, hairdressers sounds lush. I'd love some pampering. All sounds good with the show! Fingers crossed.
ilove, can you pop up and get checked?

ilovemonstersInc Sat 02-Aug-14 15:43:58

I dunnoo if I had a bit more show? In a bit of pain now. I cat napped for about half hour. Ds1 is being a good big brother amd entertaining ds2 (ds1 is 4 next month and ds2 is 1) its very sweet to see.
Feel like im cramping really bad.

baby has moved (shuffled) and was pushing down a lot. Ive had a bit of movement too.

Tmi but think it was more plug without blood just really thick mucus not like thrush like when I had show minus the blood iyswim

ilovemonstersInc Sat 02-Aug-14 15:58:58

Shouldn't have but did googlw image and looks like more plug

GingerRodgers Sat 02-Aug-14 15:59:26

No such thing as tmi here! grin
Hmm, with dd I only saw the first bit of my show- was like a big blob of blood stained snot.
I know it got more bloody and loads more of it but the midwife dealt with it as I was too out of it by then!
As long as you're happy baby is moving?

ilovemonstersInc Sat 02-Aug-14 16:37:20

Yep hes moving more now like hea trying to wiggle out of me lol

GingerRodgers Sat 02-Aug-14 16:55:39

This baby makes the most painful movements! I'm sure dd wasn't this bad or I've blocked it from memory but it's awful, great big breathtaking movements.

ilovemonstersInc Sat 02-Aug-14 18:43:18

Lol. Wheres the eviction notice grin
Getting irregular painful tightenings alongside a pulling sensation. Also had bit of a clear out.
Dh thinks I have to wait until the date ive been offered fora sweep hmm he doesn't quite understand how childbirth works lol.

Not been able to eat all day which isn't me! All of a sudden fancy a take away so its on its way.
lost some pinky stuff too

LairyPoppins Sat 02-Aug-14 20:19:42

Still waiting here. More regular tightenings, some of them a bit painful, but not quite 'contractions' yet. I think it could still be days...... sad

ilovemonstersInc Sat 02-Aug-14 20:26:14

Ohh lairy <sends us all labour pain vibes>

ilovemonstersInc Sun 03-Aug-14 06:40:45

Had pain every 4-5ish mins lastinf 1min. Quite painful.
Then nothing. Then at stupid o'clock this morning they woke me up then nothing and again been awoken by pain

how is everyone

LairyPoppins Sun 03-Aug-14 06:47:55

Oooooh ilove, that sounds promising!

I had no niggles in the night and have woken up feeling like I will be pregnant FOREVER.

It's double bad because my family know something has been happening Te past couple of days and they all think birth is imminent!

It's crap, all this waiting, isn't it?

Are you having pain now? How bad is it? Anything regular?

ilovemonstersInc Sun 03-Aug-14 08:47:41

Pains have bloody stopped.
Been like this for weeks now.
Im tired from it all now.
Tired from not sleep properly last night but feel like I have the energy to clean so will get some cleaning done.

I was reading on baby centre that sex/diy and nipple tweaking are good ways of helping things along.

Id love to have more sex but im just so big lol. We still have sex so its nice to know even at this size dh ia still attracted lol.

Have you got anything planned for today?

Ginger how are you doing?

ilovemonstersinc Sun 03-Aug-14 20:10:58

Is no news good news?? grin

GingerRodgers Sun 03-Aug-14 20:36:32

Not a great day, very tired and emotional. Off to bed shortly.
Just been out for tea and when we got home realised my feet and lower legs are massively swollen all of a sudden. Feel very dizzy and short of breath so hoping it's just aches and pains and a good sleep will sort it.

ilovemonstersinc Sun 03-Aug-14 21:02:51

If you don't feel any better ring mw and see what she says.
hopefully it's just because you have been out

LairyPoppins Mon 04-Aug-14 05:20:30

Morning ilove and Ginger

Ginger, I agree, get swelling checked out today if possible - in my last pregnancy that was one of the main signs that I had pre-eclampsia starting.

ilove any pains picking up again?

I have been woken every 1/2 hour or so in the night (starting at midnight) with pains and contractions - just got up to have some tea and toast and hoping they progress. I have an appt with the MW at 9am.

ilovemonstersinc Mon 04-Aug-14 08:18:13

Lairy thats what ive been worried about this time.I have kidney problems and so I more at risk of p.e and upto now apart from kidney infections ive been fine until last appointment. It was one of my highest bp's and protein+2. They should have checked the amount of pro but it was a different dr who didn't read all my notes so didn't. Ive been getting headaches but just watching everything.
ginger how are you feeling today?

Lairy I hope they progress for you. Nothing here apart from period pain back ache but im sure I have another uti.

Timeforabiscuit Mon 04-Aug-14 08:21:38

How are you doing this morning ginger?

GingerRodgers Mon 04-Aug-14 08:51:27

Swelling in feet gone this morning. Was there all night though. Felt awful, very dizzy and short of breath. Must have over done it yesterday.
Thank you for asking!
Hope everyone else is doing ok?

ilovemonstersinc Mon 04-Aug-14 09:11:35
