I feel the same but only just 36 weeks today! These last weeks seem a lifetime 🤣

The insomnia 😩😩😩 I get a few hours a night maximum.

The pain and pressure down low accompanied by BH and my baby bearing head down into my cervix, I feel like I’m forcing myself to hold her in, so uncomfortable.

37+4 and went to triage last night due to pain and potential trickling waters. Nope, just peeing myself lol.

So ready for baby to be here now!

@LavenderSweetPea huge congrats 🥳 hope u are both doing well❤️

@Cheetocat lol same, after so long of hoping & praying she doesn’t come early the mood has completely flipped, I’m like right it’s time, let’s go 😂 I was out kirb walking yesterday!! Haha

Feeling the same eviction vibes haha I'm torn between doing all the physical stuff to get baby to come but also weighing against aggravating the SPD/PGP and suffering even worse for longer!
Going to try my pump today so can get idea of correct flange size and see if that sets anything off.
Not sure I can face kirb walking but will see how desperate I get!

My main motivation isn't really the pregnancy side effects anymore apart from one or two things, I just can't wait to meet baby now, I found out I was pregnant before I was even four weeks along and we're so ready for him!!

What's bothering me - my hands swelling in my sleep is now causing my thumb to dislocate constantly and it's really painful, obstetrician says it's "normal" 😭

I also get these stretches of time where it feels like baby is pushing a pine cone out through my undilated cervix when I'm on my feet 🤣

Just out of my last growth scan (i am 36 weeks tomorrow) - 7lb 4oz 😳🙈😳🙈 planned cection booked for 39 weeks exactly but have in my notes if i go into spontaneous labour before then, I will go for vaginal. I am so nervous about no more scans, especially with how big baby is🙈

Wow @PeeBeee that's a beautiful weight, well done! Which ever way baby ends up coming into the world at least you know they're nice and developed x

Hey @Ihatewinding it’s really not advised to use your pump before baby is here, hand express colostrum for 5-10 mins at a time a few times a day only x

Well ladies... I am being induced on Wednesday 😅 I can confirm baby is head down!

@anony1111 we must have the same due date as I'm 36 weeks today also! I feel so far behind all the others lol. The next 3-4 weeks are going to drag with all these lovely birth announcements. I'm just soo impatient and want her here now 😂😂😂

Oh I know and I have been hand expressing colostrum. This was more as I can tell the flange for my pump is way too big and they recommend 1-2mm larger than nipple diameter AFTER a pumping session so figured something to do as a one off so can get ordered and ticked off the list. Got nothing as expected but can at least submit my hopefully final Amazon order now 😅
I'm expecting feeding difficulties due to strong family history of tongue tie and firstborn had one too, so would rather be overprepared this time around!

@AllAboardTootToot thanks for making the new thread 🙂
@Shrillwaffle @LavenderSweetPea big congratulations to you both & the safe arrival of your babies 🥰

Ladies 38weeks today & surprised I've made it this far!! 😂 this wednesday midwife is coming & said I can have a stretch & sweep if I want too? But thats depending on my cervix or something? (Never had one before so feel totally clueless about it) Don't know what to do either way as its my birthday on Sunday (4th) hope I end up having her then 😊 lol x

Congratulations @Shrillwaffle and @LavenderSweetPea ! Baby Lena is beautiful 😍 It’s so exciting!
I was worried today as baby wasn’t moving but I’ve eaten some ice cream and played the piano and he’s moving again now.

@PeeBeee and @babythreeincoming congrats on babies being in the right position and getting dates for their arrival booked in!
I am just home from scan as well, my boy is still stubbornly breech and also massive, 7lb7 (36w3d). We had to wait a while to see the consultant, but decided not to try ECV and we have booked a section on 20 Feb (39+4). Will be an emergency section if I go into labour before then but they were very keen to schedule it after 39 weeks to avoid some risks, despite his size.

It was a lot to process and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed but positive about the decision. Need to catch up with the rest of the thread chat

I went into hospital at 8:30am for reduced movements and still here - lots of checks but hoping to be able to go home soon. Really want my boy to hang in until planned section next Wednesday.

@Hankthehonk that is the exact same date for my elective too🥰
