Woohoo Pic! Good luck. Wish I could say the same...

Picante Thu 20-Aug-09 05:45:55

When are you due duchesse?

duchesse Thu 20-Aug-09 05:49:41

Was due either the 9th (my dates) or the 17th (US dates). Am happy to think I am 40+3 at the moment. Feels better than 41+3.

Keep having BH but no progress. Had a show yesterday but nothing more to report.

How's it going?

Picante Thu 20-Aug-09 06:19:33

Bearable at the moment! Got my doula coming round in a bit. Annoyingly ds is up already so it's not going to be all candlelit and dimmed lighting - more like cbeebies!

Oooooh, I'm so excited for you. I've been wanting this post title for weeks too grin

Will keep my fingers crossed that everything happens nice and quick for you. You never know, baby might be out and you'll be back on here by this evening telling us your birth story.

Sending hugs
