Strong BHs, suddenly loads of colostum appearing, backache and I've booked my shopping to be delivered on Thursday, my due date. Do you think I've tempted fate enough?

MerlinsBeard Mon 27-Oct-08 15:38:48

can you even see your legs? i couldn't when i was that close!

you need to book a lunch date for the day after for it to work properly wink

mum2jakeyroo Mon 27-Oct-08 15:38:55

definitely - my ds3 arrived 2 weeks ago on due date and didn't even tempt fate. but then again I gave birth in the car. If I remember rightly aren't you are a bit away from hosp?

MamaG Mon 27-Oct-08 15:39:12

Ah yes good point - I'll ring my mum

MamaG Mon 27-Oct-08 15:39:42

lol mum2 - yes an hour away - don't want to gbive birth in the car (apart from anything else, its filthy!!)

mum2jakeyroo Mon 27-Oct-08 15:40:15

I planned a birthday party for day before - stress of it must have sent me into labour

ahundredtimes Mon 27-Oct-08 15:40:28

Oh god. I'm so excited.

It'll happen tonight. I know it.

[boils kettle]

expatinscotland Mon 27-Oct-08 15:42:01

Go, Mama!

Nothing here.

I've pretty much resigned myself to mid-November baby here.

Got a trip across the water planned on Wednesday, however, for a final stock up on ready meals.

mum2jakeyroo Mon 27-Oct-08 15:43:35

Yes we moved this year and ended up being 45 mins away - big mistake. Used to be 5 mins away. Ours wasn't the cleanest either - especially not afterwards - lovely job for dh.

MamaG Mon 27-Oct-08 16:45:59

Ah expat I reckon I'm kidding myself. I'll be mid-November with you!

100x, you might as well click that kettle off grin

NatalieJaneIsPregnantAgain Mon 27-Oct-08 16:48:47

Jeez, woman, you still here?

<chucks plunger at MamaG>

MamaG Mon 27-Oct-08 16:51:01

I'll be here for weeks yet NJ, am convinced!

expatinscotland Mon 27-Oct-08 16:51:16

i've been having random contractions for a week.

it's come to nowt.

midwife was like, 'oh, are they powerful BHs?'

i said, 'nope. i learned the hard way DD2, they're contractions.'

but this kid is still way up there and going nowhere.

i've already re-adjusted my bags for having to go across the water to the big hospital for induction and will epidural from the get go.

i don't give a toss if it slows things down - not going to care by that point.

at least, my parents will be here 4 days after he's born if we go down the induction route and then i can literally sit on the couch or lie in bed BF and do utter FA.

ToThrottleABlackBird Mon 27-Oct-08 16:52:03

Fingers crossed for you both that you go into labour soon. Just make sure it isnt before me grin

NatalieJaneIsPregnantAgain Mon 27-Oct-08 16:53:58

Shall I fish the DIY sweep instructions out? Am sure I have them somewhere...

I was reading about something on here the other day, can't remember what it was called, but some homeopathic doingsmebob that seems to get people going within 24 hours?

I am going to stock up in a few weeks!

expatinscotland Mon 27-Oct-08 16:55:28

i've tried curry, wine, sex, walking about.

MamaG Mon 27-Oct-08 17:01:23

I was going to try it without epidural but then thought why the fuck would I do that? Will I get a medal? No!

I had epidural with DD, first, after v long labour and didn't have time with DS - why the hell would I want to put myself through that again?!

No, I'll have as many drugs as they'll let me I think.

I read that thread about that homeopathic thingy but don't think I'll try it

NatalieJaneIsPregnantAgain Mon 27-Oct-08 17:01:54

How about cleaning windows? Digging the garden (good luck in this weather!!) if nothing else at least it gets a shitty job out of the way.

expatinscotland Mon 27-Oct-08 17:02:58

if i have to be induced there is no way on this Earth i'm going epidural-free.

in fact, i'm also going to go all American on them and get them to scan me for how big he is and how big his head is.

expatinscotland Mon 27-Oct-08 17:03:27

everything's spotless here.

garden done and it's FREEZING out there, too.
