grin All excited now. 38+4 today and woke at 02:40 with a little gush of fluid; levered myself geriatrically out of bed and drenched my pyjamas. 2 hours later and I have finished packing my hospital bag, put cameras & iPad etc on to charge, made DD's packed lunch, put out school uniforms, put all labour bags, car seat etc in the hall, put a wash load on (wet PJs etc) and paced up and down aimlessly. 2 contractions so far. DH and both children still fast asleep. I'm going to try to join them again for a bit.

But I cannot find my maternity pads anywhere, and I bought about 1000 of them...

Hope everything goes well.

Good luck x if contractions don't get established soon, give the labour ward a call. Mine always wanted me to come in for a trace if spontaneous rupture and no / irregular contractions. I always waited a bit first though xxx

How exciting!

Good luck op! grin How exciting! Hope you get some sleep.

Could the pads be in a bag still? Back of wardrobe? Under bathroom sink?

How exciting, hope it all goes well for you? I found i has been ultra organised and put happiest pads and breast pads in a drawer next to the one with babys neatly folded clothes, had of course totally forgotten how organised i had been once home from hospital and by the time i found the happiest he had grown out of size one!

Your DH can always pop out and get some pads for now if they can't be found. Sounds like you are all organised and ready to go, good luck!
