Hi! grin
This is the 4th baby, boy, having a homebirth.

Due on Wed, but having frequent(ish) cx, not quite strong enough yet, but def cx! Had some bleeding when went toilet, but didn't notice any show. DH gone to drop off the kids at mums leaving me here bouncing on my ball!

Not sure I'll be able to do a proper live birth thread, but I'll update.

How exciting.
Very best of luck Stretch. Keep us posted.

Go and cook a nice stew which you can either feed to the midwives if it's a long haul, or have yourself tomorrow between feeds. smile
