Hope you are all well - baby out vibes to all that need them - having looked at last night's threads I am expecting to see some BA's very soon!!! It could be a bumper May 1st!!!
I started having really strong period type cramps last night that settled into what I can only guess are mild contractions for 30 seconds every 15 minutes... so I went to bed to get some rest and they carried on for a while, but then seemed to tail off - so frustrating!! So can you please add me to the list of those that need baby out vibes. I am hoping that they get going again now I am up and about ... I have a reflexology appointment at 12pm, but I am unsure whether to cancel or not .....

Morning al! Oh things are starting for you too.. Baby out vibes coming your way!...no advice on the reflexology appt I'm afraid..keep us all informed x
Afm.. My first real day at home with no major plans apart from the need to get round to some proper nesting.. Oh and my new washing machine is being delivered today.. Very excited about that.. I'll start washing all my cute nappies once that's in!
Will keep an eye here today.. Baby out vibes for all that need... Xx

I think we might be in for a repeat of the bumper BA day we had a fortnight ago today! Baby out vibes to all who need it.
Al- sounds very promising! Hope things get going a bit more for you today
Bexy- enjoy your first proper day of rest.
AFM- for those who missed my update yesterday baby is fine but measuring 9lb6oz already (at 38+2). Low but not engaged. Would really like this baby out before he gets much bigger. At this rate he'll be 11lb at due date! Was so uncomfortable yesterday evening. I think he's run out of space so when he has a good wriggle it hurts! Off out for lunch today. Got a mountain of ironing to do. That's it for me!
Have a good day all.

Wh.. You sure got a big one in there... Must be getting uncomfortable... Baby out vibes to you too! Hope the ironing isn't too boring... Get some tv on while you do it! Enjoy your lunch x
01/05/2013 at 07:34
bexy - enjoy your nesting, don't forget to relax on your first day off!!
WH - baby out vibes for you too - I am not surprised that bubs has run out of room!!
01/05/2013 at 07:37
Al...hope the pains return and labour starts for you soon! not sure about reflexology but isn't it meant to help get Labour going so may be worth still going? might be wrong though! Good luck and baby out vibes to you >>>>>>>>>
bexy...oooh new washing machine, hope it arrives early! Enjoy washing and nesting!
WH...wow! that's a good weight already!! baby out vibes to you to, after your lunch out of course!
Afm... the tiny bleed I had yesterday didn't return which is good, got my pre-op appointment today at hospital so will see if they are concerned at all. Just sorting things like washing and tidying at home and maybe an online shop this morning so H is sorted whilst I'm in hospital this weekend!
Will pop back later to hopefully see some BAs !!!! :-)

libby - hope that your pre-op appointment goes well - not long to go now!!
01/05/2013 at 07:52
Baby out vibes to all who need them! And I hope everything went well for Gopher yesterday!
Al - how frustrating for you! Hope things pick up for you soon! Unless you are in lanour, i'd still go to your appointment today! It might even help!
bexy - have a lovely chilled day! And enjoy your new washing machine! :-)
WH - Hope things happen for you soon too! An 11lb baby sounds a little too hefty! Enjoy your lunch!
AFM - went for dinner with my pp Saffron last night. Was really nice to see her, and I can't believe the next time I do i'll be on the other side (possibly). We are bunny sitting a girl in works bunnies for 12 days, and my goodness they are going to be a handful! Compared to my 2 boys who are so well behaved, these 2 are loud and messy. My living room floor is covered in wood shavings already. They're thumping their feet which is frustrating as I can't figure out what's upsetting them.
Off to see the MW today for my 38 week appointment! She'll be stealing yet more blood from me to see if i'm anemic (sp) which I don't think I am as i've no symptoms to suggest so. Then it's off to work for the afternoon to induct my mat cover into her job!
01/05/2013 at 07:53
Missed you there libby! You sound so organised! Hope your pre op goes well today!
01/05/2013 at 08:00
Morning all. Just on my phone so no time for personals just now, will try and get back on later. Baby out vibes to everyone who needs them!

Hello everyone I'm still here! If you saw my post last night I had another panic with some whopper tightenings. Took myself off to bed and managed to sleep so I guess they stopped again. Have sent H off to work and I'll carry on as normal to see if anything else happens.
Alocin, our bodies really like to trick us don't they? Lots of baby out vibes for you. I would still go to your appt x
Bexy, enjoy a quiet day at home
Wh, sounds like its time to start adopting those baby out techniques! Glad all is well with baby x
Libby, not long to go now! I am so jealous! Still a few weeks to my CS assuming I go all the way.
Rkb, hope the bunnies settle down a bit or it could be a long 12 days! Enjoy inducting yor mat cover - just a few days to go!
01/05/2013 at 09:35
Al - I would still keep your reflexology apppointment, I have heard that it can help get things going! Lots of baby out vibes to you
Bexy - have fun on your first proper rest day
WH - wow, sounds like you have a big one in there, must be very uncomfortable! Have a good lunch and hope that the ironing doesn't take too long
Libby - glad to hear that the bleed was a one off. Not long to go for you now!
RKB - good luck at MW today. Sounds like the bunnies are keeping up occupied! Hope that they settle down quickly, maybe it's them finding a new environment difficult?
Morph - you still here?!?! Must be horrible for you all this stopping and starting. Hope that things continue to ease off for you or either ramp up and stay that way so at least you know one way or another what's going on.
AFM - Had another good NCT class last night, am so pleased that we have such a nice group. We have an all day session on sunday and my H (typically!) suggested going to the pub next door afterwards which everyone seemed keen on. Hopefully it means that we will make friends for when on ML. Talking of ML, am thinking of bringing it forward by a week as starting to feel very heavy and emotionally charged. Hearing all the stories of you ladies having twinges and tightenings has made me wonder if leaving it to 37 weeks is too much and doesn't give me enough time to relax and get my body ready. I need to speak to my cover and make a decision. Bump is also feeling very low and heavy.
Hope that Gopher is enjoying some lovely newborn cuddles right now. Baby out vibes to all that need or want them x
01/05/2013 at 09:53
workinghardAt this rate he'll be 11lb at due date!
He is so gonna beat M's Kleek record!
01/05/2013 at 10:36
Libby..glad the bleed stopped..hope all goes well today at hospital...
RKB..sounds like a busy day ahead...dinner sounds nice...hope the MW goes ok..
Morph..hope things get moving for you soon so you arent in limbo like this..must be awful...
Ferbs..if your feeling like finishing early and its possible then you should....i certainly didnt realise how tired i was until i actually stopped...now i seem to have a productive morning but im in need of a catnap by 2pm!

Sorry on my phone so cant do personals. Hope everybody is well, and baby out vibes to those who need them.
had midwife appointment yesterday, she seems to think when baby gets to 8lb they will get her out cos of the GD. i REALLY HOPE SO. SHE ALSO SAID 5LB 1 whioch i measured at last weeks growth scan was big, although the sonographer didnt seem overly concerned. Im seeing the GD cons in 3 weeks and having a scan then, so will find out then when shes coming i guess.
01/05/2013 at 13:52
Where were you plotting on the percentile charts at the last growth scan MrsC? That doesn't sound big at all, especially compared to mine and WH's scans.
Funny how different areas do things differently, isn't it? I have a section date due to having a big baby but if the 8lbs rule applied here, it'd probably need to come out this week, which is far too early in terms of lung development etc.
01/05/2013 at 14:40
Pretty much wrs. Even measuring as big as I am they've not said they'll bring my induction forward. I was nearly 8lb at 36 weeks! It's more the proportions of baby the GD midwife is worried about ie if abdominal measurement is massive compared to rest it's a higher risk
01/05/2013 at 15:24
A quick update on me - I went for my reflexology and have been contracting ever since - currently sat bouncing on my ball with my tens machine on!!! Please can I put in a request for "nice calm home birth vibes" please!!
01/05/2013 at 15:25
Oooh this is exciting! Hope it all goes well. I've been inspired and booked a session myself.
01/05/2013 at 15:30
Oh exciting news Alocin - hope all goes well!
Received a letter this morning saying the results of my GTT came back negative. The midwife just phoned me though saying that my consultant doesn't want to wait until the end of May for my growth scan and they want to see me next Thursday. I have antibodies in my blood that I had in my last pregnancy too and no one was bothered about but this time they're going on about them all the time. The growth scan seems to be in relation to the blood they took last week so not sure what's going on tbh
