I’ve batch cooked, nursery is sorted, I feel fairly relaxed. Just waiting for this little one to make an appearance

Anyone else waiting now?

mumma2b2020 Mon 16-Mar-20 10:42:09

Yes me! 😩 When are you due? x

csmw Mon 16-Mar-20 10:50:19

Me too 15 days and counting 😬

ShirleyPhallus Mon 16-Mar-20 11:02:37

Thursday! I’m starting to feel like the baby is already late because of it!

When are you both due?

singme Mon 16-Mar-20 11:04:01

Me! I’m 38 weeks now. Still could do quite a bit of housework and tiny freezer not amenable to batch cooking! But enjoying taking a walk in the fresh air with a podcast every day!

Meee.. 39+6. Stuck at home self isolating as my toddler has a blooming cough. Which isn’t anything new, she’s always got a cold/cough! It’s so frustrating. We are on day3, isolation with a toddler should really be used as some form of torture. My daughter is the light of my life but she’s a whirlwind & getting her out to burn off steam at nursery, softplay, swimming, gym class etc is really needed 🤦🏼‍♀️

I’m kinda hoping baby stays put until she’s better .. so we can at least get her out the house once baby is here!

mumma2b2020 Mon 16-Mar-20 11:30:19

@ShirleyPhallus due 2 weeks on weds!

NixGostling Mon 16-Mar-20 11:31:57

Yep, 41+3. Bored now, we have an induction booked in couple days but hoping baby arrives on it's own before then!

csmw Mon 16-Mar-20 12:39:57

I'm due on 31st, hoping she will make an early appearance though.

ELW85 Mon 16-Mar-20 15:01:36

Yes! Due this Saturday so only 39+2 but totally agree that he feels overdue already.
Is anyone feeling any different? Any changes in symptoms?

misstoblerone85 Mon 16-Mar-20 15:05:14

Me too. I'm 41+1, due to be induced on Thursday but bored of waiting. Have had everything prepped for weeks.

Have a 2 year old DD but finding it hard to keep her amused as I can only really waddle short distances

Me... csection booked for Wednesday!! Can't wait! So uncomfortable right now!

Thompl16 Mon 16-Mar-20 15:17:36

Me! I'm desperate to go into labour now and have an energetic three year old to deal with while I can barely move I'm that huge!

Letsallscreamatthesistene Mon 16-Mar-20 15:25:02

Meeee! Due on friday. Im so bored ive taught myself how to draw!

ELW85 Mon 16-Mar-20 15:32:26

I keep looking for any little sign or difference but I don’t think anything is happening. I really don’t want to be induced!

ShirleyPhallus Mon 16-Mar-20 16:11:26

Gosh I can’t wait then for this thread to be full of babies hopefully very soon!

I have been having period like cramps but then they just disappeared. No other symptoms but I’m also looking out for every little twinge or pain!

ELW85 Mon 16-Mar-20 16:44:28

@ShirleyPhallus - yes! Exactly the same! I get them then they disappear!
Are you booked in for a sweep or anything?

ShirleyPhallus Mon 16-Mar-20 16:53:32

Hey @elw85, I feel like we are on all the same baby threads!

I have a midwife appt on Wednesday so will see what happens then. Nothing booked in but tbh I’d like to know how far I am in terms of cervix being ready so I can be informed for potential sweeps etc. I’m really hoping these cramps have at least done something and it’s on the move somehow!

MockingJay27 Mon 16-Mar-20 16:55:58

Yes i have the same due date as you (19th), I think I will be late! No signs except the odd bit of cramp at night the last few days which goes away by morning x

Marshy86 Mon 16-Mar-20 17:04:36

I'm not even due till next month and I'm soooo ready for this baby to be here ! Currently only 35 weeks and there's is potentially 7 more weeks to go HG sickness throughout but has returned this week with avengeance, heart burn if I sleep on right side, dead leg when I sleep on my left and constantly feeling exhausted.

How is everyone feeling today? Any signs of any babies?

mumma2b2020 Tue 17-Mar-20 07:53:23

Nothing yet 😩 How about you? @ShirleyPhallus

ShirleyPhallus Tue 17-Mar-20 08:08:20

@mumma2b2020 nothing from me either!! Hoping someone else has got some lovely baby news to cheer us up grin

ELW85 Tue 17-Mar-20 08:12:39

Nothing at all.
Just watched the Deputy Chief Medical Officer day on BBC that women in late 3rd Tri (34+ weeks) are most at risk of COVID-19 and just not explain how though??

Letsallscreamatthesistene Tue 17-Mar-20 08:16:51

No baby yet! Sweep on thursday, but he seems VERY happy inside me
