Well here it is at last, would have been sooner but laptop has been broken.Â It’s a bit war and peace like, but enjoy!!
It all started on the 29th November, during the morning I had had some uncomfortable tightenings, was hoping this was the start of things but wasn’t holding my breath! Midwife came about 1pm to give me my second sweep and after that tightenings were getting a bit more uncomfy. I had a sleep in the afternoon and woke up about 5:30 to regular contractions, still not too painful, but coming pretty regulary.
At about 7, I told Rich we should check everything needed for the pool, luckily we did, as we found out the hose wasn’t quite long enough, so at 7:30 we went to Wickes to buy another hose to join onto the end. Had to stop outside for a second whislt having a contraction, was pretty funny. I called my Mum and said this was probably it and said I would speak to her in an hour or so to tell her whether she should come over or not. Continue Reading
A late one is today’s blog, but it’s worth being up for.
Nicky has finally made it to the point of what can be described as no return, although being 9 months pregnant is fairly non-return in itself.
We had our midwife out earlier today and she did a stretch and sweep (I’m not going into details, but if you want to know Google it!) which kicked off Nicky’s contractions. She’s been putting up with them all afternoon and evening, and whilst they haven’t been long or regular they have been changing the expression on her face Continue Reading
By 3 days!! How rude! Everyone wants to meet you! So come out now!!!
Â Yeah still no signs of baby, no twinges, no pains as everyone keeps asking! Midwife did a sweep on Thursay (look up membrane sweep on Google if you dont know!) and she is supposed to be coming to try again today, but on Thursday my cervix wasn’t looking like baby was coming anytime soon Hopefully things have changed today and the next one might be more successful!

So it’s Sunday night, Top Gear has just finished and that can only mean one thing – The weekend is almost over.
This weekend, I have been working pretty hard on doing Maddy’s new bedroom, which after this weekend, doesn’t need very much at all doing – Hoping to get the majority of it finished on Tuesday when I’m off work. Maddy went to swimming on Saturday, and she was so good this week, and was kicking and almost looked like she was actually swimming – Were so proud.
Yup thats right, 5 days left! Well that’s until due date, doesn’t mean baby will come then. I could in theory have another 3 weeks left!
Finally though we are ready for her, clothes are washed and ironed and crib is up and made, pool and other bits are in the lounge ready, and the midwives homebirth kit is under the kitchen table ready to go, all thats missing now is a baby!! Not really been feeling anything like its coming, but then again I didn’t with Maddy, no warning, just waters breaking the day after she was due! Continue Reading
