I was going to but decided not cos of the price.
Got home from my mums today to a 'mum to be' card off my friend and shes only gone and got it made for me!! Eeeeek!

Need to read up online about a way of sterlising and sealing it in a bag ready to take to hosp.
BUT OMG HOW CUTE IS THISSSS!!!!!

Oh wow!! That's so cute! And what a lovely thing for your friend to do
I *think* you can boil them then put it in a bag and keep it in the freezer to keep it sterile. I'm sure I've read that they don't nee sterilising tho? Really should read up on it and find out lol
I've got my rainbow heart one packed and ready, so excited to use it
Xxx

Aww how lovely of your friend, I have a cord tie too. My friend wanted to use one but her hospital wouldn't use it in her c section so she gave it to me. Hoping I get to use it. This is mine

Well I managed to get through health visitor without crying, thank god she was very matter of fact and forthright, if she'd been anything else I would have been a puddle on the floor.

Started packing hospital bags today, I have one for during labour with bits for me and oh and one for after which has got bits for baby and me in it. Starting to feel very real now. Just got towels and blankets to wash and then I think we're all set. Only thing extra I'm going to do is cook loads of stuff for the freezer.

I know someone was talking about evening primrose oil a few days ago, I got some today, when is it that we should start taking them?

They apparently just dissolve in you so advised to insert in night and pop a liner on incase of leakage lol!
Im hoping as soon as I know hes turned i can start popping my rlt & epo again!

Last thing i want is a speedy labour....BREECH! Lol!! Xx

I'm in so much discomfort tonight, gonna give in and take some painkillers shortly I think. Bottom of my back is aching and I'm getting Braxton hicks all over the place...there's a part of me that thinks 'this is it' then I think nah it's far too early for my labours, plus had no show or anything else so think it's just baby wiggling down x

My other half doing my head in.... After months of trying to get him talk names and giving me stupid answers he's decided tonight he wants to do names and again coming up with stupid ones and is really pissing me off. He won't stop. I've told him to shut up but he's still going on! I'm going to punch him in a min!!

I'm trying to keep my mind occupied-currently watching Geordie shore but gonna take my ball upto bed with me when it's finished to see if I can get some relief.
Why doesn't the body remember what labour feels like so that we don't get our hopes up every time we get a niggle?
I've not told Chris that I'm niggly-he's in a bad way mentally today and is currently at his and don't want him rushing round here for no reason x

All my labours have started off really slowly and slowly got more intense over 12 hours and it's not until the intensity massively builds that I let myself believe that I'm in labour.

What are the names eaw? x

Noahs was quite sudden.

I had a few niggles in the early hours but slept through.
Went for a sweep at 9.30am and she could feel me contracting as she was going it. I think that sweep gave it a nudge cos by 10.30am i was having contractions 3-5ms lasting a min.
Got to hosp 1pm and he was born 5.44pm after 40mins of pushing.

So i hope i know when this all kicks off again haah! X
