stop being so hard on yourself supersquish!! The days up to labour are so so so hard, you can't sleep, you can't get comfy, you have every right to moan!!

My first was really late and I was desparate to have it too. My 2nd was late too!! But you're not being silly, at 37 weeks you get told it could happen any day and then you end up waiting an extra month or so. I would be like you if I didn't have so much to do, poor hubby gets home from work to go upstairs and do more. It's great that bh are so strong but I panic a little when they start every 20 mins!!
You also wanted the baby here for friends and family to be able to meet him/her before they go far away so that probably makes you a little more desparate.
Hope it comes soon for you. xx
I can't wait to hear when the first one has arrived!!

thanks girls may have to go get some rasberry leaf tea- where do they sell it?? im sat eating pineapple...again! and bouncing on my ball lol
My appitite seems to have taken a nose dive, im hoping thats a good thing! was awake at 5am with cramps and backache then fell asleep again, and baby feels really low, my pubic bone really hurts lol
trying to distract myself with chores like laundry and cleaning, were house sitting atm and his mum and dad are back on sunday, so want to keep house clean just incase i dont get to come back and make sure their house i tidy etc wouldnt say i was nesting tho....
Anyone lost there plug yet? no sign of mine just increase in CM

Raspberry Leaf Tea from health food shop. Can get tablets or teabags (tablets are more expensive)...I quite like the taste but I think others find it vile! Mw said about 2 cups a day, I have 3. The pineapple you are eating...is it fresh? I think I read somewhere it needs to be fresh.
The pineapple may be reducing your hunger??
This decorating and getting ready for the baby I would not say was nesting either due to the fact it desparately needs doing...not something I want to do....maybe it's the same thing?? Everybody says I'm nesting too!!
No plug yet, I do keep checking and in some way want to see it but also don't!! Also increase of CM though.

well this afternoon i decided to try nipple stimulatiom- ive definatly encouraged more braxtonhicks...but no real contractions! i did 5 mins on each nipple then a 15 min break and repeted 4 times so will see what tonight/tomorrow brings! I have backache just below my ribs-dunno if that counts as back labour as its not my lower back?....
I wish our bumps came with a bestbefore date lol so u know when its time is up haha
16/08/2013 at 11:52
Lol!! Nipple stimulation...not sure i could go down that path...we'll see!!
I had no raspberry leaf tea yesterday and my braxtons were few and far between, had a tea in the bath last night and they started again. But they are just bh so in the right direction...but...?
16/08/2013 at 13:04

hi supersquish, i remember you from when i used to come on here, so pleased you got your bfp at last and it seems are about to have your bubba!
Hold tight, i found the wait at the end by far the hardest part. Sorry to say it but statistically 1st baby's often make their due date (guess your friends were lucky) really hope this isnt how it is for you though. i was exactly the same as you and nipple stimulation worked for me! also got me a good milk supply going, had milk at 2 days so never had the all night feeding some mums get which helped me get over the birth i know it seems wierd but in the privacy of your own bathroom twice i day i didnt mind if it got me my baby! I started at T+1 and had him T+3 so not early, but could have been a whole lot worse. i had raspberry leaf tablets as the tea made me feel sick, lots of bouncing on a ball!!
looking fwd to hearing your happy news xx

I really sympathise. Its so frustrating when you are off work and yet not up to doing lots of things. It can be a lonely wait too.
I would say try to enjoy the last few days of peace and quiet, build up your energy, calories etc. People swear by shopping trips too so that could be good - distracting, being mobile etc.
If I were to do my wait again I would try to get out more and do more for myself such as reading, lunch with mates etc. Not sure if I would actually feel like any of that though.
Best of luck! x

I also read that with nipple stimulation, they both need to be done at the same time.
Great idea TulipRose...I am reading Little Dorrit at the moment, just a little at a time and went to a friends the other day which was great to be away from these 4 walls. I can't drive anymore due to being a little momma and baba is steering the car much to the other children's amusement...lol!! So it's a case of walking everywhere and with this baba so low down it's rather painful.
16/08/2013 at 23:57
LOL! well im still pregnant....so the nipple stimulation didnt work Trying to take comfort in the fact that i can sleep as much as i want and laze about! Went for a lunch with my hubs today as it may be our last chance for a while, next time we will be a family (eek oh my god i love saying that)!!
Just had a nice warm bath, not having a cup of hot milk then its off to bed for me! See what tomorrow brings!
FYI- Given up on pineapple...burns my mouth to bits and all it really did was give me the squits lol! Think ill just let baba come when he/she is ready!
Night girls xx
