Hi everyone, I'm actually due today, been to doctors and she said I'm 3/5 engaged (does that really mean anything?). Been feeling uncomfy all day and now have this horrible 'pressurised' feeling too, thing is it's more around the bowel and hip area than anywhere else. Feels like I constantly need to poo (sorry to be this graphic ) Could this be the start of something or am I just cruelly constipated? Can't get comfortable at all, although a hot water bottle on the back is helping a bit at the moment. I'm scared!!!!
Cloudy, don't think I have but on the other hand it has been quite 'dischargey' down there recently, no blood though. Two weeks and I think I'll be battering down the hospital door with my hot water bottle!!
Thanks Kalex, keep them crossed! It would be a bloomin' miracle if he decided to put in an appearance - or even start to - on his actual due date though me thinks!
It's really important you get some sleep now if you can, exciting as things may seem. If it's the start of someting you need your rest while you can, if it's not the start of something you need to try to forget about it.
You need dp/dh for this. On your big toe there is a print like there is on your fingers. Find the arch bit in the middle and get dp/dh to press with thumb very hard! It will hurt a bit but it's meant to make your uterus contract. Do it on both feet. You can also do it on the inside fleshy part of your feet but press upwards for that one. We did this one day in the afternoon and again before I went to sleep. 2 hrs later I went into labour!!! I'm convinced it worked.
