Good luck today @ChipsAreLife and @HugeAgeGap

Placemarking Grin

UrsulaSings · 04/09/2020 20:19

Place marking also

liquoricecravings · 04/09/2020 20:22

I hope it's gone well today @ChipsAreLife and @hugeagegap.

@ShiningStarz I hope your labour starts soon! I can't believe our due date is only 5 days away though! These last few days seem super long. I can't wait to have my little one in my arms.

I've been reading birth stories collected by a midwife called Ina May and they're all really encouraging.

emma278 · 05/09/2020 10:03

Hi all! Thanks for sorting the new thread! Hope everyone is well. 39+2 here and no signs at all of movement. Midwife on Monday so maybe find out a bit more then. Aside from sleeping im feeling ok. Even bravung a bikini wax later today in preperation for delivery πŸ˜‚ x

mamamemmmer · 05/09/2020 13:53

Might be having a Sept baby rather than an October one, so jumping on this thread x

WillowT · 05/09/2020 15:48

@smilymami the other thread is full so just wanted to say congratulations! Lovely news!

Margo34 · 05/09/2020 15:49

(The other thread ran out of space).

@Smilymami congratulations! What a close call for your DH too! Hope you're recovering well.

ShiningStarz · 05/09/2020 16:00

Oh my gosh @Smilymami he is absolutely gorgeous !!!! So amazing seeing these little ones arrive, so precious and enjoy this special time xx

ShiningStarz · 05/09/2020 16:01

@liquoricecravings I have no signs at all
Today!!! I think I'll have to wait until
Induction :(
How u feeling?

liquoricecravings · 05/09/2020 16:08

Congratulations @Smilymami! That sounds like a dramatic birth. I'm pleased your DH managed to get to you in time. It looks like Neil has lots of hair already οΏΌ x

@ShiningStarz no signs today. We've been for a walk to see if that helps. I've been drinking raspberry leaf tea for a couple of days to see if that will help and I might try a warm bath later. I just want a cuddle now! And to stop feeling so heavy! My app says the baby is the size of a watermelon and I'm definitely feeling that weight on my front now.

ShiningStarz · 05/09/2020 16:11

Haha @liquoricecravings is that the baby centre app, mine says watermelon too!!!
I feel surprisingly really good, not heavy and my bump is small! I am also so ready to meet little one!! Still can't believe there is a baby in there!!! Have they mentioned induction to you?? Or are you ok to get to 42 weeks?

sianyflewog · 05/09/2020 16:22

Congratulations @ChipsAreLife and to you @Smilymami! Xx

MooseWL · 05/09/2020 16:25

@smilymami what a cutie congratulations! Glad you made it to the labour ward, what a fast second stage!

liquoricecravings · 05/09/2020 16:34

@ShiningStarz my midwife is happy to let things take their course at the moment as I've been so low risk throughout the pregnancy. I'm still going to try a few of the tricks to see if I can get labour started - it's worth a try.

ShiningStarz · 05/09/2020 16:38

Good luck over the coming days @liquoricecravings πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•
