** THIRD TRIMESTER CHAT **

Hey everyone, Just a quickie to let you know my brave little soldier is here, 2nd September 2011, have put a thread on the birth announcement board along with details about my traumatic labour/birth. Discharged from hospital Tues (6th) afternoon, little man was very unsettled and getting used to his new home at first, so a few long sleepless nights and zombie-like days but settling in nicely now and cant imagine life without him! I am slowly getting back to normal, healing well, just frustrating...

Hey Ladies! Just had the sweep, wasn't too bad just a bit more uncomfortable than a smear. Had been having a few period type cramps in lower back and low in tummy since last nite but nothing regular. Midwife said my cervix is slightly posterior, partially effaced and thinning. 1cm dilated and head is at -2 station and 3/5 engaged, whatever all that means lets hope this does the trick. Midwife coming round again on Monday (5th) and will offer another sweep if no sign. She has also booked me in fo...

Hey everyone, Still no sign of little man, never got round to doing the deed, but I have been out this morning to waitrose and got some raspberry leaf tea, which is surprisingly nice and also a fresh pineapple and lots of lovely biscuits ready for visitors! Not too uncomfortable, but getting less and less sleep at night, its such an effort even to turn over and my pelvis cracks and aches a lot and its a misson just to get out of bed to pee, I hobble like an old lady, but once I am out everything...

Congratulations Elizmac on the birth of baby Ross! What was his weight?? x I am still waiting! Today is my due date according to scan, wed (31st) if going by IVF dates. Midwife is coming round to do a sweep this Wednesday if I have not started by then. I really want him out now! Been eating fresh pineapple, and bought a birthing ball to sit on at home. Midwife told me to try but my heart is not in it! Too much effort I am off to buy some raspberry leaf tea later hmmm maybe I should have got that...

Hey all! Can't believe how close we all are now! One more week till I finish work Chatter, that does seem early to be having a section, sorry to hear it though. Elizmac, kidney stone sounds painful hopefully you have passed it now! Regarding the lady garden debate I've always preferred the natural look, as I've got really sensitve skin so in the past have had some nasty rashes and soreness when trying to "tidy up" so am leaving it, but worried what medical staff will think Had my 32 week review ...

Hi everyone! I was recommended Asda little angels nappies by my cousin who has a boy and said theyare brilliant, then my sil said they were no good, but she has a girl so maybe they are better for boys. I've bought some anyway, I too have bought a mixture and have Huggies and Pamapers to try! Booboo, totally agree on the comfortability thing for babies, when i first met my niece she had jeans and a top and I thought God she must be sooo uncomfortable in those being only a few days old.... I've a...

Hi just a quick question.....has eveyone had their fundal height measured before 30 weeks? My midwife said she would start measuring from then but when I went she didn't so am a bit concerned as not seeing her till 32+4? I walked out without realising with my baby brain!! Quite disappointed really as not had any kind of freebies yet either and keep forgetting to ask! feeling a bit cheated really!

Hey everyone! Mind if I join in the breast feeding discussion? I really want to do it too, I think it prevents a lot of bugs, and colic etc, but have said if it didn't work I wouldn't beat myself up over it. But after today's discussion after my scan about breastfeeding they do seem to push it on you!! I really want to give my baby the goodness from me and all my antibodies and I think its free so thats a bonus! And will also express later if I can. A girl at work told me to get the Dr. Brown bo...

Hey everyone! Aww sorry to hear about you're results Taxi, what a worrying time for you I hope everything turns out ok, and before I got my nuchal results I had also decided I was not having an amnio whatever, but its also terrible to think our babies may not be perfect after its taken so long for us all to get here. I think what the others say is right, they are basing it on your age more than anything, I think you should def try to get an earlier scan Tinyteacher, I know how you feel, the firs...

Hi Adreamz, sorry I couldn't answer earlier, I can only log on at home as don't know my password to log on my phone! I got it from TJ Hughes! If you don't have one of those near you, you may be able to order online. Think they do them in Dunhelm Mill, and maybe argos too!! I wish I'd shopped around for my body pillow but I was desperate! I now have my body pillow in front of me, (I go to sleep on my left side) for my tummy and between my knees, a memory foam pillow behind my back, and the triang...
