That's so great - no c-section and babies home with no problems - you must be so pleased. Really happy for you. I bet it feels good now that you can reclaim your body and lie down in all sorts of positions! Good luck with all the feeding/sleeping etc
I can't believe one of us has given birth. You're right, Denise, it does make it seem really real now. I'm still not due for 4 more weeks, so I hope not too soon for me, but baby's started to drop and I'm 1/5 engaged (ouch - not very comfortable when it burrows its way down there), so at least baby's the right way round.
My ribs have been a lot recently, which is a relief. But my pelvis pain is not good. Last night I had to wake DH up as I got stuck and couldn't move in bed! He had to haul me up! LOL! It's so sore. I couldn't go back to sleep, so I got up at 4am and wrote all the Xmas cards, so at least it was productive. I'll be shattered later.
Denise, glad your renos are nearly finished. This could be the last week for ours, which is so exciting. Our kitchen floor went in last week and it looks great now. I don't blame you for getting a cleaner. I can't even do up my shoe laces!
Good to hear from you, Nikki. Shame about the itching. Hope it eases up. Is there anything you can put on it? Maybe ice would help? (Not great in winter) I'm getting BH contractions all the time. Sometimes they hurt like period pains and are always very tight, but they're OK. I can't believe your baby is so big! Mine's about 15th %ile, but they're only measuring using tape measure on tummy, so it's not that accurate, especially now the baby's started to drop. Hope it doesn't get any bigger! How do you know about your cervix? Are you having internal exams? I'm not, so have no idea. I am quite happy if the baby stays in for a few more weeks. I'm not ready yet! (Though not being able to sleep is getting tedious.)
Anyway, catch you all soon and good luck!
