Hi, I am 40+1 today, it is very hot and I have had back pain for the last two weeks so not feeling up for much activity when I can avoid it. Does being less active have an impact on when labour sets in? Am really desperate to get things going soon (this is my 2nd baby, first was 4 days late and I would rather not be induced) but physically not feeling up for much and taking every opportunity to get help with my toddler...Any thoughts?
Oh, I am hoping that I am not too inactive - although for my standards I am hardly doing anything. Still cleaning out my horse's stable every day though not much else bar running after my 2-year-old (when I have to) and baby is well engaged now so hope I don't have to wait too long, Good luck to you too! x
Hey mucking out it more than have done in years! so good for you. And yes i agree re 2 year old, i have one of those who gets me involved in everything! and is a little madam at times sothat keeps me busy too!
I'm 40+3 and know exactly what you mean. DS is with my mum today and I can't move - am glued to the sofa with a fan and the tennis on - I seem to alternate between feeling ok (went swimming and for quite a long walk yesterday and did lots of playing) then totally knackered...if I went into labour today I don't think I'd have the energy to go through it.
My sister's dd arrived in weather like this and a thunderstorm set her off. Keeping my fingers crossed for a break in the weather...
...and the thought of sex at this size and in this heat?????
Hi everyone! At last, baby was born on 1 July after a short labour and very uncomplicated birth, hurrah! I was not sure I could make it through labour as I felt so exhausted but it was a lot quicker this time (jut 2 1/2 hrs established labour - had 16hrs with my first!) I managed with just gas and air as it all came rather fast - so glad it is out (now the heat is over too for those of you still waiting) - I wish you all good luck for your birth experiences in the coming days and weeks!!! xx
