Just wanted to say hi guys!
I don't post much now as i have a very hard time since the boys were born as i found motherhood a complete shock. Hopefully now we are all settling into it though and it seems only 5 minutes since we were waiting in anticipation.
Best wishes to everyone.

I'm still waiting...... had another pineapple last night, but feel no twinges whatsoever.
I am going in tomorow (tues) at 7.30AM!!

If anyone has any tips about how to cope with induction that would be great. Feeling a bit scared now, but somehow it just doesn't seem real either.
