I'm due on the 17th...2nd baby and so excited. Currently in slow labour so contractions in the evening completely irregular and turning into a disappointing nothing!!!
How are you getting along??

BeanoNoir Thu 01-Aug-13 21:49:38

I hate bloody braxton hicks, never had any with dd and now getting loads in the evenings. Really annoying that they're kind of uncomfortable but nothing like the real thing. Also I keep knicker checking every time I go to the toilet as the bloody show was the first sign things were starting with dd. Feel really sorry for myself tonight.

Lola I think your due date is the same as mine (7th)?

lola1980 Thu 01-Aug-13 22:00:12

Yes, same due date! I'm with you on the knicker checking, anything to suggest it might happen soon. Got a mw appointment on Tuesday and she may offer me a sweep if I'm favourable, kinda hoping I won't need one though hmm

Evening all.

Harriet Eleri born at 5pm today. Went to hospital at 1.30, was 4cm. Things cranked up quickly, waters broke at 445 and Harriet born 15 min later grin. All fine, back home now.

Thanks zing for your endless advice, patience and reassurance.

Good luck all!

LittleMilla Fri 02-Aug-13 02:50:31

Fab news Tom - huge congrats! And pleased it was all quite speedy in the end. Hope things down below aren't too, ahem, sore as a result!


TomDaleysTrunks Fri 02-Aug-13 05:02:25

Thanks both! Nope, small graze but otherwise ok.
I'd forgotten the constant boob and refusal to sleep in Moses basket grin!

TomDaleysTrunks Fri 02-Aug-13 05:19:42

Thinking of reebok, beans and spag Bol.

Isitme1 Fri 02-Aug-13 06:22:45

Yay another baby is here! !
congratulations tom

HJBeans Fri 02-Aug-13 07:56:17

Congratulations Tom!!! What wonderful news to wake up to!

Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know while in the first days of getting to know your DD. Can I tell you how encouraging it is for someone still waiting to see your posts going from 'nothing to report' to 'refusing to sleep in Moses basket' in just a few days? smile

Enjoy every minute with your new girl and congrats again. grin

As for me, still absolutely nothing to report.

ZingWidge Fri 02-Aug-13 08:34:14

Beans it will be your turn soon!smile

ZingWidge Fri 02-Aug-13 14:57:04

how's everyone today?

BeanoNoir Fri 02-Aug-13 19:43:44

Hello! I'm very new to the thread Zing but I'll answer you anyway! 39+2 and just braxton hicks but still obsessively knicker checking for signs of a show. Got very down last night about things not happening (already had with dd by this point) but trying to be positive today.

Any news from anyone else? I spoke to Reebok on a different thread and presume she's probably in the thick of it or with her baby by now?

moominmaiden Fri 02-Aug-13 20:19:13

Hello! I haven't been around for a little while as my little man has been keeping me busy with his constant feeds - he's already stunned the midwife by gaining, rather than losing weight in his first week! He's beautiful smile. Have been well myself, although I could have done without my stitches getting infected. Poor DH witnessed the tear and has announced that he does not want to be 'down the business end' next time...

After nine months of vague confusion I know understand the importance of buying muslin cloths grin

Congratulations to everyone who has delivered and commiserations to those still waiting to pop in this humidity! Reebok I've been thinking of you even though I haven't been able to keep up with the thread - hoping your disappearance means you are snuggled up with a new arrival flowers

HJBeans Sat 03-Aug-13 03:44:48

Up most of the night with lots of discomfort under bump, but pretty sure it's all down to trapped wind. This plus constant need to wee very tiring and annoying, but I guess due to baby moving lower and everything getting compressed? Do wish if I were going to be up at night and in pain that it was at least useful pain... sad

Isitme1 Sat 03-Aug-13 04:30:19

Hope Reebok is enjoying hee baby x

mrsspagbol Sat 03-Aug-13 06:10:28

Hello! Sorry for the delay in returning to the thread - my dd was born by emcs on 31 jul 2013 and i am so in love.

Thank you reebok, hjbeans, zing et al for keeping me company through those horrendous overdue days flowers

HJBeans Sat 03-Aug-13 06:50:04

Congratulations mrsspagbol! Wonderful news - thanks so much for coming back to tell us. So encouraging to hear that the waiting does eventually turn into babies! Hope you enjoy every minute with your wee girl. grin

Here, I've not slept since 3 and have realised that i) my 'trapped wind' pains don't seem to be relieved by passing wind or using the loo and ii) they seem to come every 10-12 minutes and last for about 30 seconds.

Wondering if something useful might be happening after all. All still quite mild, though, so holding off on waking DH and sharing this wishful thinking anywhere but MN!

Airfryer Sat 03-Aug-13 07:39:15

Hjbeans, I'm still holding on too! 40+3.....tired doesn't quite cover it eh

lola1980 Sat 03-Aug-13 08:47:05

Oh I've given up thinking I'm ever going to have a baby. Although I'm glad my labour didn't kick off last night after all - OH went out for the first time in months, and came back absolutely mortal and he's very VERY poorly now! I'd love to be sympathetic but I can't help remembering the 18wks of morning sickness wink

lola1980 Sat 03-Aug-13 08:49:19

Beans and airfryer - I had around two hours sleep last night so feeling the same. Had a very strong urge to go for a walk at around 4am, was very awake! There is the distinct possibility of naps today...

ZingWidge Sat 03-Aug-13 09:10:28

I couldn't resist creating a follow up thread - please carry on on new link here:

also, it might be best to not fill this old one up - idon't want returning people to think it's just finished ITSWIM
