Pleased everything else is ok.

I don't think Tootie is listening to anyone ... hopefully though he/she will get good talking to from our Consultant tomorrow? Will let you all know what he says! ::)

Loads of love

PS - The calm and patient bit will probably only last 5 minutes or so! ;D

Hi Everyone

Hey Dee not long now!! You'll be fine, just think who you will see at the end of it all....little Tootie  :)

I see I'm No. 8 on the list now, its coming round fast now. Today I was on a course at work called Pregnancy & Beyond. I panicked a bit as my colleague due the same day wasn't there...I thought she was in hospital....just delayed on the motorway!! Needless to say Angela and myself managed to worry the course leader & attendees by saying we could have our babies anytime now!! Good fun....especially with me noshing on fresh pineapple this lunchtime. The course was great though it would've been useful to have been on it a heck of a lot earlier but it certainly gave food for thought. Subjects discussed were what sort of communication did you want to have with work and also thinking of options of returning to work.

Anyway it really tired me out, had dinner then went for a lie down...slept for a few hours so now I'm wide awake! Off to see the midwife tomorrow at 1.45pm, get to find out if bubbs has moved a bit. One of my old neighbours has lent me her inflatable ball for me to bounce around on.

Come on out Tootie

love & hugs

Camilla

Hi Girls

Feeling tired, lazy and happy ... so cheating on the posting front. ::) Here's today's news that I have posted in the Rainbow Clubhouse.

Dee said:
Hi All

Back from the consultant ... feeling chilled and happy! ;D

Mr Consultant wasn't there so saw his registrar ... a lovely lady who I really like.
And bestest news is that it looks like Tootie is starting to consider coming out to play - it's not likely to happen for a few days yet but at least he/she is on the move. ;D
Cervix is softened and I am 1-2 cm dilated! ;D

I also have an appointment to be induced should nothing have happened by next week. But ... am not planning on having to keep that one! ;)

Will be back later ... am tired so am going to go and have a nap on the sofa before I pick DN up from school.

Lots of love
Dee

Back from the midwife. I finally remembered to tell her about the occassional visual disturbances I've been getting plus the headache I had for 3 days earlier this week. My blood pressure is fine plus no protein in my urine. I have been advised that if I get my headache back to take a couple of paracetamols and if it doesn't go, to go to the hospital for some monitoring. I'm seeing my midwife at the parentcraft class on Monday, she'll take my bp then...plus I've got my proper appointment on Wednesday next week.

I think today is one of those down sort of days...I'll be fine tomorrow, I think I'm just a bit tired and grouchy  :eek:

Sounds great Dee that Tootie is starting to think about making an entrance.

love & hugs

Camilla

hey Dee

Great news - every cm dilation now means a shorter labour when it arrives. I had about a week of latent 1st stage before Alex arrived I reckon it helped a great deal.

Evening All

No news from here ... Tootie is nicely settled and I am feeling so so calm and relaxed.  Feel like I know there is light at the end of the tunnel and we will reach the end of the tunnel in Tootie's own good time now.  Don't know if that makes sense after I have been so wound up over being overdue but somehow the fact that I know progress, albeit slow, is being made ... just restores totally happiness and harmony.
A couple of my mates and my sisters were like ... oh aren't you nervous now - but I'm not just feel totally chilled, happy and relaxed.  ;D

Zoe - Hope you liked the car. xxx

Camilla - Sorry to hear it's a down day today ... I definately blame those on the hormones!  Big hugs to you, hun - I hope tomorrow is much better. xxx

Gemma - We have had our travel system/pram since I was about 20 weeks (if not before) ... but it's the one superstition I have stuck by and have refused to have it in the house.  It's still round at my sisters house in DN's playroom!
Good luck for the midwife tomorrow. xxx

And my final personal for the day ... sorry only catching up with those who have posted since me - cheating I know but just blame the hormones and Tootie!  Anyway .....

Suz - Welcome home, hun ... I have been reading Phil's account of Siobhan's arrival - wonderful!
I'll keep the epidural tip in mind but am hoping to avoid one as I suffer with a bad back and would rather be able to feel what I am doing in case I damage it any further, if that makes sense. xxx

^hello^ to everyone else
Loads of love
Dee

Hi girls,

Just a quickie - came home again after being in hospital for last 3 weeks.  No more bleeding since 26th november, one head engaged and they think might of moved placenta out of the way.  Just waiting for waters to break now, the hospital are very pleased to have got me to 34 weeks, want me to go another 2 weeks, but i dont think the babies want to.  Getting tightenings often now, not very painful yet, can cope at the moment.

They did put me on a drip to stop the contractions, but i came out in a rash, so they took me off it. 

I know all the midwives really well now, they are all so nice. 

Sorry for the me post, but i cant sit here for long.

Hope you are all ok,

Love Susan xxx

Hopefully Tootie is on their way as I type if not already here!!

Well I survived 6 babies in my lounge (including one set of twins). Just 2 of us left now who are due to pop soon from my NCT group. At least it has been a better day than yesterday...plenty to keep me occupied.

Tomorrow Mum and I are off shopping for some final bits and pieces. The cot mattress is here and I had confirmation that the kiddie furniture is going to arrive next Thursday  :)

Hope all is well with everyone

love & hugs

Camilla

Hi All

Great news about Tootie arriving, at last!!!!
I went to the hospital this afternoon to sign the consent forms for the c-section and go through what happens etc.  Had some blood taken, met the anaesthetist and talked through that procedure, sounds ok  :-\ :-\
Anyway I came home and have been soooo tearful ever since and don't know what to do with myself.  I guess it's a combination of nerves and hormones and as I type this I can't see the keyboard for tears. DP has gone out for a beer so I hope you don;t mind me off-loading here. I think it's the huge build-up to the big day and don't get me wrong I wouldn't change any of it for the world - I can't wait to meet "Shrimp" it's just not how I thought it would be........maybe a warm bath will help. 
Hope everyone else is ok.
Susan - glad you're home and all is well.
Take care, sorry no other personals, love Bev H xxxxx

Hiya

Bev - awwwww you'll be fine, next Tuesday isn't it?  14th? or have I got that wrong?  ;)

Remember at the moment you're hormonal and just want to meet your little shrimp it's what you've strived for for so so so long and you nearly didn't do that last positive cycle and now you are just about to embark on your last weekend without shrimp in our world.

You're bound to be scared etc but it will be soooooooo worthwhile.  My friend swears by c-s and besides shrimp can't come out bum first, that would be incredibly painful, especially as you are so tiny!

Nearly there Bev, I reckon a little girl!

Love Sue
