In hospital. DH fallen asleep. I have had drugs and am dancing around the room singing abba songs v v quietly. Not in established labour yet but contractions every2 mins. Bit bored by myself, anyone up?!

I am up. I am not in the UK so will be up for a bit.

Yay for you! First baby?

2nd! My c section was booked for tomorrow, so I'd completely stopped expecting to go into labour naturally, so was ridiculously surprised when I did! How daft!

How exciting!!

Conserve your energy while you can though, you'll need it later!

NCShouldLTB Tue 24-Nov-15 02:35:23

Ooh, wow. Yes, you probably should try and get some rest...at least sit or lie down rather than dancing!

Excited for you.

It's just so great not having back pain for the first time in months!

Just going to bed, will probably be up again for more night feeds so will check in if I'm awake enough. Remember to breath, it really does help. Picture yourself, holding your baby and stay positive. It's going to be wonderful. So exciting for you and your family flowers

Good luck. The dancing is probably good as it will help baby to get into position. flowers.

My MW had me writing the alphabet with my hips - looked like I was doing the Time Warp grin.

MargaretHale Tue 24-Nov-15 03:06:24

Ha I'll try that!

Morning! How exciting. Hope your doing okay? Fingers crossed all of your dancing will jiggle the baby out smile and its not hiding or staying put because of the Abba tunes wink
