Hi ladies just doing a little stop pit check on you all before we have our hands full with our bundles of pink and blue....
So a quick update from me 34 weeks now so 6 weeks to go, been in and out of hospital the last 2 weeks, hind waters went and baby is now acting like a plug to stop any thing else going on, iv had steroids and that should help with babies lungs, had a scan done and his gonna be big! his already showing up at 2 weeks in front lol little chubba.
Had more bloods done today as my liver is finding the pregnancy a tad hard....and got more to be done monday coming....then next thursday a meeting with some top consultant and then again on the 29th september to decide the next step.....Iv also been told i have group b strip
In all i feel fine, my blood pressure is still a good 114/70 so thats good iv still not had one day of sickness...crazy really but im not moaning
So i thought id see how your all doing??????

hi huni yes i found out i could not wait after losing 2 last year i just had to know,
i feel the same so heavy when walking around its very hard at times, with my first i was a week late but both my sisters frist where early so you never know, my first labour was not bad, the hospital broke my waters and it was all over in around 4.5 hours, i had a back to back baby for my first so hoping this time round his not back to back id like a water birth but with every thing thats happened i cant see it going that way

Can't believe we're all so close now to meeting our babies. I'm currently 35+1 & just feeling really tired but no other real problems. This time I have some strange personal growth chart so even though I'm measuring as I would expect (34cm at 34 weeks & 29cm at 29 weeks) my baby is plotting just above the 90th centile & may have to have a growth scan if I'm still measuring big at my next appointment at 36 weeks. Seems a bit crazy as my daughter was born 6lb 10oz at 40+4 & my bump isn't exactly huge but I'm not gonna turn down another peek!!!
I'm hoping for a home water birth so have started putting things into a box rather than a bag but then my hubby can put it all in a bag if needs be. So on Wed my mw is visiting me at home to go through things with me. I can't believe I'm actually looking forward to the labour this time. I can't have a home birth until I get to 37 weeks so between 2 - 8 weeks for me before baby arrives. So excited!!
Oh & iron tablets - not nice!!!

Glad to hear you're all well/ being well looked after. I'm 37 weeks and full term today. I only finished work yesterday so my 3 yr old and me are still in our jammies today.
My pregnancy has been slightly more traumatic than last time, but still relatively brilliant and straightforward, so can't complain. I had my routing bloods done at 28 weeks. My doctor rang me a day later to say I was anaemic and could I go and pick up some iron tablets. (They make your poo black! But I feel soooooo much better. I didn't even realise I'd felt so crap!). Then I had more bloods to check my iron levels and they found out I was B12 deficient as well. So been on supplememts. They've also checked my thyroid which is, at the moment, fine (my mum's went underactive in her 2nd pregnancy).
Because I only finished work yesterday, I don;t think it's sunk in that I only have 3 weeks to go! My daughter was 3 days early and I have it in my head she's going to be a week early. That's 2 weeks away! I actually can't wait now. I'm only short and they've estimated her to be 8lb so I'm just in pain!
Hospital bag is half done :/. Baby has got everything. We're calling her Elodie Lucy. Her big sister is VERY excited, especially as my sister had her little boy 2 weeks ago. Just ready for this bit to be over and the new chapter to start. Got my MW coming Monday and just doing my birth plan. Whoo hoo!
Love to you all xxx

Well I ended up with a growth scan & despite my growth chart plotting this baby on 90th centile the scan showed he's closer to 50th line & weighs approx 6lb 2 (at 36 weeks) so not concerned. My homebirth meeting went rather badly but hope to meet up with mw again next week (with my hubby for support) to make sure she knows that I'm sticking to my birth plan & not following her strict rules. Just need to get to 2nd Oct as I'm not allowed a home birth until then. So between 1-7 weeks & baby will be here (I don't like to think of 1 date as then you get disappointed if they don't come 'on time!!!'
Last time the hv didn't visit me until around 15 days post birth as the mw usually hands you over to the hv at around 10 days (mine took awhile to contact me!!). Not quite sure what they'd do before the baby arrives, maybe just give you lots of leaflets & explain the services available to you.
5 days to go till October starts....!!!
