BFP Due Date July / August 2018

Ruby100- How exciting that your baby is getting closer and closer to you in spirit and physically . Having all the plans for the third trimester will make this time go so quick and the third tri is imminent. The 30 week scans will make it seem even more real and part of you.

 The home classes are a great idea and you can then have the newborn one tailored to all your specific questions. We have booked something similar. Silver cross seems a popular pram choice, there are so many lovely single ones out there

Must check out TKMax, think it is the only shop I haven't ! Those boppi pillows are brilliant too. Will have a look.

Annie- lee-
Brilliant news that you now have 34 weeks as a date to aim for and how reassuring you'll be all local too once your date is specific . You are so, so close to meeting those little ladies.

The icandy looks lovely and looks the best in front styletwin pram.

We have  gone with the side by side beast thing in an Emmaljungal double. It  actually fits through our front door ( thank God!) it was an ebay bargain as it is the Viking 735 and latest narrower model. Really chuffed. Also eyeing up the bugaboo donkey 2 as one for the car too. It looks lovely and mother care are doing 0% finance on it. The resale value is excellent too. Having two prams, I'm greedy like that  ;D

Babies really kicking away now so looks like they were ok with the sun thing. Now I fret about squashing them and squashing them
In to each other as I turn over in bed  ::)

Hle- have a google at what's local to you or call your midwife community number and ask the rest of the team about them.

Had an antenatal and breastfeed class last week  which I've had to find out about myself on google as the midwife has not been very helpful, she  even laughed when I was 16 weeks and asked about antenatal classes. She asked, why I would want such classes. Was a bit put out but soon got over it. Did ring the local midwives who guided me on breastfeed classes too and where to go on google.

Sorry to hear about the furniture, just when you were ready to get it and set it up, a big step. Hopefully the new set will turn up quick.

Yes to the contraction things, sometimes I get cramps with the tightening. They are getting g tighter and more intense/ last longer and can't breathe properly through them when at their worst. I find rest helps.

As long as yours are not regular and consistent and go away with rest they are likely the body prepping for later. If any thing seems unusual for you, you can get them checked out at your local triage to see if they are the real deaL.

Sm89- lovely you enjoyed France and got to see your boy and his cute Lil face at the scan. Hope all goes ok with your testing for diabetes tommorow.

Clarabelle- I'm sure the diagnosis won't affect the baby and that is a tough thing to find out . The clinic will guide you and hope the appointment comes through very quick and you don't have to adjust your diet too much, as you have done a lot of that already.

    Sm89 - good luck with diabetes test tomorrow. A friend of mine had it done too. And ooooh I am jealous of your holibobs, how lovely to get away before baby comes, enjoying couple time together.


    Anilee - eek 34 weeks & you will meet your babies  :)  I am sure your local hospital will get it all booked in soon. Having the date really helps you to plan and organise!


    Clarabelle- sorry to read about the diabetes.  You'll be well looked after now and get as others have said the quicker its known the better managed it will be.


    Dreamer- I have that weird feeling I am squashing baby when I roll over too and I only have 1 baby in me  ;D  funny you should say about antenatal classes, my midwifes been useless here on that front too. With my DD we paid for NCT classes, absolutely brilliant for making mummy friends (all still close friends now) however i knew from early on i was having a section so paid little attension to natural birth talks & now I am panicking I know nothing!  ??? 




    Hello to anyone I've missed. Sorry for being quiet, the anxiety is crippling sometimes but I am trying my best.


    I am 25 weeks now, already huge and measuring ahead. If one more person gives me a pity look of "August your due, really??" I think I'll cry!


    We've ordered our pram *a bugaboo fox* and the nursery furniture is all in boxes in the babies room. I have brought loads of baby bundles of clothes off eBay too and lots of friends have passed me on bits and bobs (upstairs resembles a jumble sale)


    Because of my anxiety I struggle to look at a lot of it but DH has pushed me a long with a lot of the buying.  Councellor I see assures me I am not jinxing things by being organised.
    We dont pick up the pram until August and we won't start the babies room until I am at least 30 weeks. 


    I still get quiet days movement wise.  Other days are much better. It drives me a bit bonkers! My DD is still massively excited & cannot wait for her brother to come. We have booked a 4d scan for half term so we can take DD. Next midwife appointment is at 28 weeks for the dreaded anti -d jab because of my crappy blood group.


    Anyway, thats me updated. Lovely to read and hear from you all. Roll on  mid summer hey girls!

    hi Girls,

    just a quick one! i had another growth scan yesterday and all is good he is beautifully average in size and weight (4lb 12 ozs) @ 32+4 .

    Anyway our consultant wanted to talk to us about being induced if I get to my due date because of my age... 40 blah blah...

    She has said I am at a higher risk of a still birth although because we had a DE not as much as a risk as a 40 year olds egg....  The inducing is nothing to do with me having an IVF pregnancy (i thought that would be the reason rather than my age) Anyway... she said have a look online and gave me a leaflet!  i have to give her a decision in a few weeks.

    So! is it worth having one? whats the pros and cons in your lots eyes?! xx

    Hey ladies,

    Just a quick one from me this time as hoping to get advice from our non first timers of the group...

    In the last couple of hours I have had water uncontrollable leaking out, thought it was urine but it has no smell and has also developed into a slightly pink colour now. Its not coming out a great force a sani towl is being sufficent while horizontal then just sitting on the toilet when Iím not horizontal as its such a small trickle.

    Now this is couple with what I describe as bad period pains. Water hasnt stopped yet.

    Iím only 29 weeks so just worried this is too early for these signs?! 😱

    Hi ladies,
    I'm a lurker on this page but have no 2 due on the 13th July (and an induction date booked for 5th).

    Annilee - I don't have direct experience but I would say this is definitely a 'call the midwife' moment - defo go and get it checked out.  They need to check if its your waters breaking.

    Sally - I'm being induced about 8 days early too due to my age.  I'm very happy with that though as the risks do rise if you go overdue.  it also saves the last week of waiting.
    Also for me, my first labour was very long, and I had ages of waters having broken and contractions every 5 mins but nothing good happening, so then I moved onto induction drugs etc.  So for me, if I can go direct to that stage 2 without the long painful bit first then I am happy!!  I've booked a couple of specialist reflexology sessions in the few days before in the hope of getting things set up and ready or maybe even kicked off naturally too.

    xx

    Thanks ladies.

    Turns out my water has broken on one of the babies. Iíve been allowed to come home to pack an overnight bag, then Im back to the hospital for the night for monitoring. But good news is they said theyíll do everything they can to keep both babies in for a couple more weeks yet! 🤞🏼

    Hope everyone else is OK xox

    Annilee so glad you called and you are getting monitored at the hospital. Glad they will do everything they can to keep babies in longer. I know must be scary as earlier than expected but you are close to 30 weeks and sure it will be fine. Sending you best wishes xx

    Sallysmiles, iam also DE and turned 47 recently. My obgyn told me from the beginning i would be induced at 39 weeks. I never thought anything of it, as always knew i never wanted to go past due date. Now she says 50/50 chance of c section. I had a low lying placenta and now have gestational diabetes. So i may very well need a c section. My friend who had a baby at 45 with diabetes had planned c section at 37 weeks. ( baby can be big)I will do what is best for the baby.

    Lollipops hope your anxiety is improving as you get further along. Both my dh and i get anxiety as been through so much to get this baby. Ive still not even bought clothes. I saw some lovely unisex clothes on the mothercare site, iam in Canada but sister is coming from England in June so i can get her to bring some.

    Dreamer i should book classes but didnt get any help. Now finding classes booked up for when i want. I have so little experience with newborns.

    Sm89 good luck for glucose test. I made the mistake of not drinking any water that morning so felt sick 50 mins after test. I wish i passed but glad the will monitor me soon.

    Ruby100 hope you get nice photos with your scan.

    Hope everyone is fine. Hard to keep up with every personal. Though trying a bit.

    Iam still finding it hard trying to change eating even more for diabetes. I do crave sweet things but been good so far. Was down yesterday as was support to go to a show in town with mum , planned for a long time but dh was too worried something might happen to me or the baby if its too crowded. I know he is being over protective but i also know we,ve been through so much for this baby and was just scared. I cancelled but felt so bad about it. Its like a yearly skating show we attend. X

    Annilee-
    Sending you lots of calm and positive thoughts  ^reiki^ your girls stay in a bit longer. When those babes are ready to come, they are. Good that you got to go home  and pack your bag yourself and have your familiar essentials around you and that you are at your local hospital whom are taking care of you.

    Hello Suzie76- What a journey you have travelled  :-*

    Sally-

    What a great weight for your little chap.

    inductionwise, I've been reading around as am down to have that if the twins are not here by 37 weeks. Also, been watching too much of one born every minute. Based on these sources all I can gauge is the following:
    Cons
    Contractions may be more intense and painful  as you are forcing your body to labour.
    Labour can last longer.
    Pros
    Its like an elective section in that you are semi-prepared and can get rest in prior.
    Seems more relaxed as not an urgent, baby is coming type situation
    Baby comes a bit earlier and less risk of still birth of certain risk factors (not large risks but still maybe there)

    Is your instinct pointing you any way at the moment?

    * I may be wrong, the above pros and cons are just  my interpretation of the info around induction.

    Lollipops- wow! You have loads done and prepared for babe, you have come so far physically and mentally. Lovely you have the 4D scan booked with DD to share that moment. How precious and how real it all is now. 28 weeks is in a good zone.

    Squashing the babies does worry me like you. It did in the last pregnancy and all was fine . I do find though that when so tired I don't notice as much except when the babes protest about being moved and cornered.

    Like you, A few ladies  I know have met dear friends through NCt classes, our nearest one was 40 miles away so gave up on that one. Hope I can muster the courage to make some new friends at local baby classes. That's one area where I do worry about being an older mum.

    Sm89- hope today went ok?

    As typing this I'm sure twin 2 was trying to stand up in my uterus, the most freaks thing ever  :o distracted me and thought I'd lost the post, but relief, it is still here  ;D
