I'm 39+6 with DS2 and ready for this pregnancy to be over grin
Anyone in the same boat?

Ilovemypyjamas Sun 14-Jul-19 20:15:21

Me! 39+1 today and feeling really tired, squashed and grumpy. Keep getting cramps at nighttime and thinking this is it.... but nothing so far!

Fedoos Mon 15-Jul-19 02:24:32

And me! 40+3 with DD2 and SO ready. Had a few cramps on and off but nothing more than that. Already booked in for induction on 24th. It can't come to that. Can it??! DD1 was born at 39+4 so I was convinced this one would be here by now.

unicornsprinklesss Mon 15-Jul-19 14:03:16

Keep me updated! DS1 was born at exactly 39 weeks so I'm hoping this one will be out soon. Happy due date to me!!! But no sign of baby sad Just feeling as tired and massive as ever, yay.

@Feedos my sister went into natural labour a day before her induction was booked - there is hope!

Ilovemypyjamas Mon 15-Jul-19 16:34:40

Baby is still in here today! I had my daughter at 39+4 so I am hoping history repeats itself. Fingers crossed for you both! grin

unicornsprinklesss Mon 15-Jul-19 20:44:15

You're not going to believe this - my waters have just broken! shock No contractions or anything yet. Called my midwife who has told me to stay at home resting until proper contractions start which could be 12-24 hours.

Hellosunshine30 Mon 15-Jul-19 20:48:02

Ohhhh how exciting. Keep us updated. Hopefully your don't wait too long

I've had BH all night. Constantly. I feel so bloody uncomfortable. 38 plus 1 here x

Fedoos Tue 16-Jul-19 08:41:38

@unicornsprinklesss How exciting (and not jealous at all!)! Good luck, hope all goes well.

40+4 here and still nothing 😭

Ilovemypyjamas Tue 16-Jul-19 09:01:05

@unicornsprinklesss hope all is going well! Nothing to report here either...

unicornsprinklesss Tue 16-Jul-19 09:10:23

Thank you everyone! And keeping my fingers crossed for you all. Still absolutely no contractions angry

unicornsprinklesss Tue 16-Jul-19 12:40:24

Update: now getting mild tightenings like ramped up braxton hicks. Nothing too unbearable but hopefully means DS2 might be here by tomorrow!

Ilovemypyjamas Tue 16-Jul-19 14:12:18

That is exciting! Good luck!!

unicornsprinklesss Tue 16-Jul-19 19:00:33

In hospital, 4cm dilated with 1 minute contractions every 4 ish minutes. Hurry up baby!!! I'll keep you posted.

Ilovemypyjamas Tue 16-Jul-19 19:05:49

Ooh see you soon baby!! Super news OP x

Hellosunshine30 Tue 16-Jul-19 20:10:24

Oooh keep us posted. Good luck

EAIOU Tue 16-Jul-19 20:19:18

Good luck OP! I'm having a cup of tea here and you're having a baby 😂🥰

Fedoos Tue 16-Jul-19 23:01:44

Eek, you'll be meeting your baby very soon, OP!

There were a couple of hours earlier this evening where I was getting some pains and I thought things might be starting off here, but they seem to have eased off again now. Booooo.

Mrsmummy90 Wed 17-Jul-19 00:07:03

Good luck!! 😊

unicornsprinklesss Wed 17-Jul-19 09:20:43

Hi all! My little bundle Isaac was born at exactly 5:40am this morning after a long and painful labour, (no epidural as it made me pass out last time haha) weighing 8lb3oz. Baby and me are doing good! DS1 is coming to meet his little brother in a bit.
Hope you're all ok x

Mrsmummy90 Wed 17-Jul-19 10:40:15

Congratulations!! 😊

Hellosunshine30 Wed 17-Jul-19 10:41:26

Aw this is great news @unicornsprinklesssehat a lovely name. So chuffed for you. Congrats x

Fedoos Wed 17-Jul-19 10:48:48

Aw, congratulations! Bet your DS1 is excited!

Shahlalala Wed 17-Jul-19 10:57:35

I’m a bit behind at 36 weeks but wanted to pop in to say congratulations unicorn!

Shahlalala Wed 17-Jul-19 10:58:07

Braxton hicks and nanny down pains here, but I fear I will probably just have them for 5 weeks. grin

Shahlalala Wed 17-Jul-19 10:58:23

*jabby down pains

Ilovemypyjamas Wed 17-Jul-19 11:57:42

Lovely news! Congratulations OP! I've been having lots of movement, so hoping something might happen soon - probably wishful thinking though grin

unicornsprinklesss Wed 17-Jul-19 15:06:27

Thank you all! Can't wait for your babies to start popping out, let's keep this thread active smile

My mum took DS1 to the hospital to meet his little brother and his reaction was "ahhhh he's cute but shall we go home and leave him here now mummy?"

Fedoos Wed 17-Jul-19 15:39:28

Aww, bless your DS1 @unicornsprinklesss. How old is he? My little girl is almost 4 and beside herself with excitement!

Nothing more to report from me at the moment (40+5). Taking up residence on my gym ball with a big bowl of pineapple, haha.

unicornsprinklesss Wed 17-Jul-19 18:17:00

He is 2! @Fedoos
The gym ball is a bloody life saver.

Ilovemypyjamas Thu 18-Jul-19 13:01:15

Okay, had my sweep this morning. Midwife says I am 3cm dilated and cervix is very thin. She hopes that labour will start in the next day or two. Fingers crossed!!

Hope everyone else is doing well! smile

Fedoos Thu 18-Jul-19 14:21:39

Oh that sounds promising @Ilovemypyjamas!

I just got back from having a sweep too. I'm only 1cm dilated but still hoping that the sweep will get things moving.

Fingers crossed for us both!

Ilovemypyjamas Thu 18-Jul-19 16:31:41

How are you doing Fedoos?

I'm having contractions every 4 minutes here, lasting 1 minute. Waiting on a phonecall back from the midwife now... Feeling a lot of pressure in my bits and my bum. Hoping this could be it!

cravingmilkshake Thu 18-Jul-19 16:48:59

Hi all,

I am 39+4 - first pregnancy- lost my mucous plug yesterday morning but nothing since then! Lots of movement today though!

Hopefully something happens soon!! ❤️

unicornsprinklesss Thu 18-Jul-19 17:10:38

@Ilovemypyjamas YESSSS!!! keep us updated.

@cravingmilkshake fingers crossed smile

unicornsprinklesss Thu 18-Jul-19 17:16:52

little isaac home today x

cravingmilkshake Thu 18-Jul-19 17:21:07

@unicornsprinklesss he is gorgeous- love the name!!

Fedoos Thu 18-Jul-19 18:31:27

@Ilovemypyjamas Amazing! Sounds like things are moving quickly for you! Can't wait for an update. Still nothing doing here after my sweep. Maybe I need to see your midwife, she must have super powers! I'm beginning to feel like things will never get started. Will be 41 weeks tomorrow 😭

@unicornsprinklesss Just gorgeous 😊

Fingers crossed @cravingmilkshake!

unicornsprinklesss Thu 18-Jul-19 18:41:55

Thank you all!!! Crossing my fingers for yous!!!

Ilovemypyjamas Thu 18-Jul-19 19:38:01

@Fedoos yes, she was pretty vigorous! Still at home just now, the contractions are getting a bit stronger but not too bad yet. Trying to eat some dinner and rest while I can.

@unicornsprinklesss Baby Isaac is just beautiful, congratulations!

@cravingmilkshake hoping you get going soon, I had lots of movement the past few days too so maybe it is a sign!

Ilovemypyjamas Fri 19-Jul-19 17:01:09

My contractions stopped but I'm dilated 5cms. Got sent home this morning after a very tiring night at the hospital! Knackered.

How is everyone else getting on?

unicornsprinklesss Fri 19-Jul-19 17:11:09

@Ilovemypyjamas that's annoying but at least it's progress! KEEPING MY FINGERS CROSSED!

I'm adjusting to life with two kids, still resting after the birth. Breastfeeding is bloody exhausting but I'm so glad he's here. I still look about 6 months pregnant though haha.

Isaac is just gorgeous, thank you all (I may be biased). He has his check up in a couple of days time!

Hope you're all well x

Hellosunshine30 Fri 19-Jul-19 17:25:01

I'm due a sweep this coming week. I'll be 39 plus 3. Baby was only 2/5 or 3/5 engaged. I don't know if I should go ahead with it or not. I'm in 2 minds as I've heard it is so painful.

Mrsmummy90 Fri 19-Jul-19 17:36:50

39 weeks today. By this point with dd1, I'd already had her. Can't wait for this baby to make an appearance! No signs whatsoever that she's close to being born though!

Fedoos Fri 19-Jul-19 18:02:48

Aww, I've been thinking about you today @Ilovemypyjamas and wondering how you were getting on. That's frustrating but good that things have moved on. Did they say when they'd expect things to get going again or is it just a waiting game?

Glad you and Isaac are getting settled in at home @unicornsprinklesss.

I had a sweep yesterday @Hellosunshine30. It was uncomfortable but not painful and once it was done it was done, I had no discomfort afterwards.

Fingers crossed something happens soon @Mrsmummy90.

STILL nothing to report here. Feeling quite down about it today ☹️

Ilovemypyjamas Fri 19-Jul-19 19:33:32

@Hellosunshine30 the sweep wasn't painful, just felt a bit uncomfy and odd. As soon as she stopped doing it, it was fine.

@Fedoos I think the sweep almost started something and then it stopped. So I've decided I don't want to force it, I'll just wait now confused don't feel sad, I am sure these babes will come when they are ready brew cake

Hellosunshine30 Fri 19-Jul-19 20:07:33

@ilovemypyjamas @Fedoos thanks. Some people say it's pointless if you aren't in labour. It apparently only works if you were due to go into labour within 48 hours or something. This is my 1st and I bet I go over, although if I could go tonight I would be happy haha.

Sadie789 Fri 19-Jul-19 20:13:29

38+5 and done with being pregnant. Can barely walk. Splitting headache. Huge baby hanging out the right side of my bump. Ready to go but nothing happening.

Ilovemypyjamas Sun 21-Jul-19 03:01:44

Baby boy born last night at 11.50pm. Just made it for his due date!
Almost didn't make it to the hospital in time, he was born 25 minutes after we arrived shock

All doing well xx

How is everyone else doing? X

Mrsmummy90 Sun 21-Jul-19 05:44:28

Congratulations @Ilovemypyjamas!!

I keep getting so many false starts that just trail off to nothing. Starting to think she's never coming!!

Hellosunshine30 Sun 21-Jul-19 06:21:14

@ilovemypyjamas wow congratulations! You must be so chuffed. Weight?

I actually had a weird night. I don't want to overthink it.

Had a terribly sore bottom back. Had one since 20 weeks but this seemed even sore with more pressure on it.
Had to go for BM at about 3am!(tmi apologies)
Feeling sick
Just been to the toilet and saw what I think is the start of a show? Like a clear kinda mucus.
My nipples were leaking all last night too.

Could this be it grin hope so although it probably won't be x

Fedoos Sun 21-Jul-19 07:05:19

Yay! Congratulations @Ilovemypyjamas! 25 minutes?! Wow that was cutting it fine! Glad you're both doing well.

Sounds promising @Hellosunshine30. Fingers crossed for you.

41+2 here and nothing to report. Feeling a bit more relaxed about things. Booked in for induction on Wednesday so the end is in sight and if baby decides to make an appearance before then it's a bonus.

Ilovemypyjamas Sun 21-Jul-19 09:11:26

He's 7lbs 11oz, but looks so tiny next to DD grin

Home now and resting.

My labour started off as feeling like I needed a poo but couldn't do it!!

Hellosunshine30 Sun 21-Jul-19 12:06:27

@Fedoos that's good you have the end in sight.

@ilovemypyjamas Aww lovely. Congratulations again.

Well, I've nothing to report. I don't think it was my plug as I did some go ogling and it was totally clear unlike ones I saw on here and Google. Still have a very sore back and feel sick. Nothing else. hmm

nutellabebe Sun 21-Jul-19 17:58:37

Hi all it's the OP (got locked out of my account so made a new one!) - promise it's me! @Ilovemypyjamas congratulations!!! yayyyyyyyyy.
I took Isaac for his check up today and all is well - he is a chunky monkey! DS1 is getting used to life with a sibling haha. Hope you're all doing well.

Fedoos Tue 23-Jul-19 13:11:41

Glad all was good at the check up @nutellabebe

@ilovemypyjamas, I hope you and baby are doing well.

Any news from anyone else?

I'm going for one last sweep shortly in a last ditch attempt to get things going before being induced tomorrow!

cravingmilkshake Tue 23-Jul-19 18:41:01

Hi all,

40 +2 today, went in for reduced movements-baby seems fine! Because it is the second episode, I have a scan booked for Thursday morning.

They also tried to give me a sweep today but my cervix is too high and I am booked for induction Saturday morning at 9am 🥺 I hope baby makes an appearance before then!

I hope everybody else is doing well!?

ememem84 Tue 23-Jul-19 18:58:34

39+2 today. Due date the 29th. Heatwave here. 36 degrees. So unbelievably hot and sweaty and ready to have baby. Ds arrived at 39+4. Fingers crossed.

Fedoos Wed 24-Jul-19 20:43:45

So, we didn't quite make it to induction. The last sweep did the job and our little girl was born in the early hours of this morning. 9lb 15oz! No wonder I've been so uncomfortable!

We are both doing well. Back home by lunchtime after a pretty straightforward labour. Absolutely besotted with her.

Hope everyone else is doing OK.

Hellosunshine30 Wed 24-Jul-19 21:26:16

Well done @Fedoos

I went into early labour late Monday night and baby boy was born this morning weighing 8lb 3. Pretty horrible labour, but so amazing St the same time.

Woo xx

Ilovemypyjamas Wed 24-Jul-19 23:52:58

@Fedoos and @Hellosunshine30 congratulations and a huge well done!!

Enjoy your lovely babies smile

ememem84 Mon 29-Jul-19 18:46:40

Baby girl - Florence Marie born this afternoon at 12.50. 8lb9oz. Best addition to our family.

So relieved to no longer be pregnant.

Ilovemypyjamas Tue 30-Jul-19 06:50:38

@ememem84 well done and congratulations! What a beautiful name for her too smile

Hellosunshine30 Wed 31-Jul-19 08:01:42

Well done @ememem84 fantastic news.

It's so nice to hear about all the July babies 😊
Can't believe my little one will be a week!
