I am officially now overdue!! I spent all pregnancy telling everyone I was certain he was coming early and he's been stubborn and proved me wrong!!

Amz26 Sun 08-Jan-17 00:34:47

Well hopefully he will be here very soon! How are you feeling? I bet you're a little fed up now X

Is this pos

Amz26 Sun 08-Jan-17 01:14:37

JuliaLeigh- yes I would say it is a positive! Congratulations X

JuliaLeigh Sun 08-Jan-17 01:15:55

Just like super early right?? N Ty!!!(:

Tinyhumanjan17 Sun 08-Jan-17 04:57:07

Looks positive! If you're not convinced test again in a day or two!!

Amz I'm not too bad... However I have actually started having contractions so it appears he doesn't wanna be too late!!

Currently every 7/8 minutes and although painful still bearable so got a way to go yet I think!

Ahhh live birth thread πŸ˜€
I've managed 2 of those (sort of) on mumsnet, it sort of distracts you!! I'm currently up with the result of my 2nd birth thread, who's 5 weeks.
Do you know what you're having? Hospital or home birth?

Tinyhumanjan17 Sun 08-Jan-17 05:12:56

5 weeks wow I bet he/she is so gorgeous!!!

Having a hospital birth cos of a medical condition unfortunately!! We're having a little boy ☺️ dh was so excited when he found out I was secretly really hoping for a girl lol

Bigfam Sun 08-Jan-17 05:17:10

Thank you, she is, her name is Romy. 😊
Have you got any names in mind? Is this your first? I'm giving you quick fire questions to distract you!
We've got 4 girls and 1 boy so everyone was hoping for a boy (except me grin) but as long as they're healthy that's all that matters.

Tinyhumanjan17 Sun 08-Jan-17 05:40:53

Hahaha thank you it is actually really helpful to have a distraction I can see why u did a semi live birth feed!!

Romy is such a gorgeous name!! Our family is notorious for boys!! This is my first but I have 8 brothers and sisters and between them there are 15 kids but only 4 of them are girls!!

Wev picked Isaac for him we struggled so much to choose a boys name!! I'd like a girl but I'm not sure I'd do this again!!!

How long were u in labour for last time? I was my sisters birth partner for her 3rd and she was only in labour 3 hours! This all kicked off at 4pm yesterday!!

Amz26 Sun 08-Jan-17 10:20:33

Oh wow Tinyhumanjan17 yeah he doesn't want to be late! How you doing ATM X

Bigfam Sun 08-Jan-17 10:53:53

How are you doing tinyhuman I hope things have progressed for you.

My labour with Romy wasn't too bad, from my very first pain to her being born was 5 hours, I got to hospital at half 5 and was 8cm dilated, she was born at 7.33am smile
My shortest was no3. My waters went at midnight and she was in my arms at 2.10am

Isaac is a gorgeous name, wow only 4 girls!
Once you're holding baby, most of the pain is forgotten.

Hi, have been checked over by labour ward... contractions are still painful but fairly mild in comparison to how bad they are gonna get, theyre every - minutes but my cervix is still closed sad my notes say 25% effaced but shut so it looks like im in for a long long labour! spent most of the day walking around, now just come for a lay down with my tens machine cos iv only had maybe 4 hours. i just dont know wht to do with myself! they said this bit could go on for days... i dont think i can cope with this for days!

Hope you're OK tiny you never know, you may surprise yourself and cope really well, if not when you're offered any pain relief, take whatever they offer & remember every contraction is a step closer to you holding your baby! Hope you've managed to get some rest.

Tinyhumanjan17 Sun 08-Jan-17 21:03:00

Iv slept a little!!! Tightenings are manageable and currently every 8-9 minutes! Really hoping and keeping my fingers crossed things ramp up and happen overnight!!

Bigfam Sun 08-Jan-17 21:47:28

It feels weird to wish pain upon someone, but I too hope things pick up for very soon! πŸ˜€

Bigfam Mon 09-Jan-17 20:53:36

How are you tiny?

Tinyhumanjan17 Mon 09-Jan-17 21:12:39

Still pregnant lol!! Contractions are just random now but consultant appt tomorrow so will hopefully get an induction date!!

Bigfam Mon 09-Jan-17 21:32:37

I'd hoped the radio silence meant things had ramped up. Good luck for tomorrow, I hope they do give you a date, let us know how you get on smile

Tinyhumanjan17 Mon 09-Jan-17 22:14:24

Nope just been a busy bee today trying to get him out!! I will do thank you for checking back really means a lot! X

Amz26 Mon 09-Jan-17 23:19:50

Just seen your posts tiny sounds like you're not having an easy time.. I hope they're looking after you well X

Tinyhumanjan17 Tue 10-Jan-17 03:52:18

Keep your FX for me i think this is it finally!! Clearly the baby was waiting for me to paint my nails and straighten my hair!!! Who wants to be born to a messy mummy!!!

Bigfam Tue 10-Jan-17 07:48:03

Yay tiny so no appointment with your consultant hopefully!
Romy arrived the one day I hadn't managed to wash and straighten my hair, I was most displeased grin
Good luck, looking forward to seeing your birth announcement & pictures of course x

Amz26 Tue 10-Jan-17 10:38:16
