Anyone else nearing the end ?

Nikki2ol6 Thu 15-Dec-16 13:55:13

I'm 37 wks and a few days.... I'm very uncomfortable! I wake up constantly to pee and I'm so tired and thirsty 😔 I also have an induction booked for 3 weeks if I don't have him on my own before then!

Dontwannabeabadmum Thu 15-Dec-16 14:47:51

I'm 36+5 have an appt with consultant booked for 40+3 and have been told if I haven't gone by then they'll be booking my induction for that week. Also been told I can have a sweep from 38w. So fed up of being pregnant now!!

I'm 37 weeks and 3 days and so ready to have the baby. Haven't seen my midwife since 27-ish weeks so don't have a clue what's going on really. 3rd baby but the pregnancy has been so different this time and I just seem to be feeling sorry for myself all the time grin

Hi yeah I'm 38+5 today! C section booked for next Wednesday smile

38 weeks today! So ready for this pregnancy to be over and to be able to walk properly again!

Dueindecember2016 Thu 15-Dec-16 16:37:25

I'm 39 weeks tomorrow with a sweep booked in for next Friday. How many sweeps do they give you before you are induced? I'm hoping I'll only need one!

BonesyBones Thu 15-Dec-16 19:37:37

Dueindecember I'm sure it varies by area, but with my last DC two years ago I was given 3 sweeps before I went into labour, between 40 weeks exactly and 40+10 when DS was born. A combination of the last sweep and laughing until it hurt at waynes world definitely brought it on I think!

Nikki2ol6 Fri 16-Dec-16 07:10:34

My midwife has never mentioned a sweep! It's not my first baby but I have never had a sweep before how do you get one and at what stage? I see her next week and will be 38+5

SerialReJoiner Fri 16-Dec-16 07:15:08

38+3! Getting to the point where every morning I wake up grumpy because I am still pregnant. Ugh!!

No plans or talk of induction. I have a home birth booked with my one-to-one midwife.

I've developed mild hypertension so have to keep going in for BP monitoring and blood tests. Most frustrating thing ever.

Dontwannabeabadmum Fri 16-Dec-16 10:53:19

36+6 and just feel sick and dizzy all the time now. My BP is normal so I know there's no problem but by God it's annoying!

I'm hoping that with my 38w mw appt being at 37+3 that she'll either do a sweep then or get me in any clinic she can for the earliest date possible!! Which because of Xmas will be 38+4!!!

37+2 with my first baby and finally on maternity leave. Everything aches a bit and the heartburn is driving me crazy but I'm quite enjoying a bit of quiet time now. However I just can't wait to meet this little one and am hoping not to go overdue xx

Princesspinkgirl Fri 16-Dec-16 16:11:35

It's tough work being this pregnant eh girls no intervention here till 41 weeks and that's just a sweep hopefully this pregnancy won't last that long I've had enough already lol

Alwayswaiting Fri 16-Dec-16 16:37:46

38+4 and so fed up with waiting for this baby to come! I just want her either here a few dats before Christmas or a few days after.... so I can enjoy it with my other children. I just wish I knew when she was coming!

Been walking loads and ate half a pineapple today!

Nikki2ol6 Fri 16-Dec-16 16:48:18

Pineapple gives me the worst ever heart burn! I walk loads too. I may do some dancing at The Christmas party

Dontwannabeabadmum Fri 16-Dec-16 17:11:32

Iv done nearly 5 hours of walking today!! I'm hoping that it's gonna do something!!!

Starlight85 Sat 17-Dec-16 00:10:54

I'm 37+2 with my first baby. Currently being monitored every other day due to a growth scan on Monday showing the baby is now on the bottom centile line. Have another scan booked for Monday and then 28th. I feel so ready for her to be out now with all the extra worry along with the tiredness and uncomfortableness!

Princesspinkgirl Sat 17-Dec-16 17:38:59

Dontwannabeabadmum good luck hope it works for you

Princesspinkgirl Sat 17-Dec-16 17:41:36

Alwayswaiting I know the feeling I wish I knew when this little lady was coming to I'm thinking that she's far to comfortable in there hmm I went normal food shopping today and it was torture felt awful the whole time just want this baby out i hope someone on this thread is lucky enough for things to start moving sooner rather than later

Dueindecember2016 Sat 17-Dec-16 18:29:01

I bought raspberry leaf tea today and have a curry for dinner. Come on girls!!! We need to all have positive thoughts!!

SerialReJoiner Sat 17-Dec-16 18:45:50

Am sniffing Clary sage oil right now, much to dh's dismay. The timing isn't great with Christmas coming up, but I am sick of being pregnant. So Very Done.

SpaceDinosaur Sun 18-Dec-16 00:22:45

I can't walk for miles because I puff up. It's so so frustrating.

Bouncing on the ball.
Drinking raspberry leaf
"Jumping" poor DH (although right now it's closer to a walrus dragging itself on land!)

Tomorrow is curry day but I've had an upset stomach for 3 freaking days already and it's done nothing GODDAMMIT!!!

Dontwannabeabadmum Sun 18-Dec-16 04:35:15

Oh won't come near me atm as it's his work Xmas drinks this afternoon and he really wants to get there so he's pulling out all the stops to keep him in until tomorrow 😂

Iv had a couple of little smudges of browny bloody marks in my pants today and any kind of standing makes if feel like bubbas head is gonna come out and had a little bit of backaxhe/period pains that are sort of going up and down bump and thighs but they're nothing particularly painful just there
