Blue strange you should say about the leg hair as mine stopped as well!
We are formula feeding yes, wasn't able to establish BF at hospital due to the light therapy & tbh it's been such a help with hubby and family being able to help with the feeds, I don't know how you girls do it especially on a 3 hour schedule !

Hope things start moving again for you sprout!

Sorry it's so stressful for you Millie, I know what you mean you just want them here safe and sound where you can see and feel and touch them rather than spending all day everyday worried about movement and if they are ok in there x I hope things start moving for you Hun x

Hi girls, been a bit quiet this week frantically trying to finish up things at work. Have just done my last day and now finally on maternity leave! Suddenly exhausted though with all the effort and the realisation that I'm full term tomorrow.

Can also no longer walk which is far from ideal. Started as a hip pain last week and has progressed to an excruciating stabbing through my lower back and pelvis every time I take a step. Midwife seems to think it's a result of my vertebrae being pushed together by the weight of baby and trapping nerves and is going to try and get me a quick physio referral. But I'm anxious about the potential prospect of another 5 weeks of this! At least I'm done on the tube for now. Got overtaken yesterday by someone on crutches which was a low point!

Bump's also measuring small again, so am being referred for a third growth scan. Beginning to make me anxious that it keeps happening...

Really enjoy hearing what everyone's up to. Well done to all the mummies and fingers crossed for action soon for everyone else!

I can't imagine how you must feel!
I'm losing it at 37+5 with pains I keep getting stop/start lol I go in tomorrow though as original plan was induction this week. I have a feeling she has moved her head though ..when I get pressure now with the pains I don't feel her head between my legs today..it's more to the left by that hip bone they won't do anything if she isn't engaged. So will have to see what happens. Her movements have been okay but still vary and hard to track. I can't wait for her to be here safe..my anxiety has been through the roof this week! Spend most of the day crying etc wishing she was here safe. I wish I could be excited for whenever her arrival is but instead I'm just impatient as with each day I feel itl be harder if things do go wrong. Xxx

Bless you, it must be so stressful when you're so worried. I'm just massively impatient and wanting it all to be over with. Let us know how it goes tomorrow! I have an appointment at the hospital at 8:45 blech but I don't actually know what for!? I'm thinking to discuss induction...and probably sooner rather than later as he's supposed to be so big.

Sarah & Blue, I couldn't say if mine stopped or not as I haven't attempted to shave them in months haha

Laura thanks for advice re Medela Shields! They have worked a treat and bobs now feeds from the Boob!! Top ups were making me so stressed having to make two bottles & I never got the formula tight first time round !! On a few occasions I went to shake it & covered the kitchen!!!

Any babies last night?!? xxxxxxx

It won't be long for me, the tightenings and period cramps are getting painful. A lot of discharge coming from downstairs. Almost there.

Must feel absolutely amazing to have finished Thunbs! So sorry to hear about your back though You're obviously just too lovely and petite to cope with the weight of another human being!! Really hope all goes ok at the growth scan and it's just a repeat of what they said last time..

You're so nearly there Sprout.. hope you have a good appointment and get a plan in place!

Sarah the twins are so gorgeous. Looks like they're doing wonderfully!

Oh Millie It'll all be over soon enough, I am sure Imogen is absolutely fine, if she only knew how much you were worryig about her! Hope you hear whatever you need to tomorrow to feel better xx

Hi everyone, I am keeping up on here but I don't always have the time to reply once I've read everything, someone seems to wake up and demand feeding.

Sorry that all of you still expecting are having such a hard time with discomfort and worries. I used to get fed up of being told to enjoy the last of pregnancy because soon it'll be all go, so instead, I will say that in my opinion, it gets much better once baby/babies born! I get very little sleep still, but I'm so much more comfortable even with a csection to recover from. Also there isn't the constant worry because you can see your little baby in front of you. Promise it gets better and you've all got such a short time left, even though it does drag on xx

The little ladies are both finally sleeping, but I see them stirring. Hazel has wanted holding all day, but I've finally got my hands free to have a pump and feed myself! Here's hoping they sleep a bit longer as mummy needs a rest!

Last night, we left them in their basket and went downstairs to eat. Came back and they'd snuggled up together See pic xx

Thumbs did you have your growth scan today? Hope it went alright!

Ooo Robbda I didn't realise they got concerned when movements majorly increased. I feel for you girls who have had/ are having inductions. I've heard you battle with strong contractions! keep us updated.

Sarah I totally missed the twin photo! How cute! Hope you are all ok! And Laura your girls are adorable, do twins tend to like sleeping quite close to each other? I presume it's similar to womv time?

I've been sent upstairs for a nap and all I've done for the past 15 mins I read bits on here!!Xxxxx

Ahhh Laura that photo is the sweetest thing!

So I went to my 8:45 appointment today, waited for an hour, got fed up and asked if it would be much longer to be told that I actually wasn't supposed to have an appointment after all?! >: ( Wasted about 2 hours, then spent the rest of the morning napping, so it's felt like a bit of a pointless day!

Is anyone else doing all the silly start-labour-at-home things?! So far I've tried sex, acupressure, lots of walking and nipple stimulation (OH doesn't even blink at the sight of me sitting watching tv with my boobs out anymore haha)

So cute Laura!
That’s funny about the boobs Sprout! I just realised that my new job involves working nights and being topless haha!
Good luck to everyone waiting for babies to arrive!

No appointment for a scan yet, Abi. Hopefully they'll call me tomorrow though - I'm just anxious to get it done and check that baby is growing...

Must be any day for you Sprout! Fingers crossed things kick off tomorrow!

It can't be too much longer.

Got to go back in tomorrow where hopefully can be induced depending on position etc and what my consultant recommends as need to give the go ahead as the last scan was good but it's still so hard to track her movements. I've rang so many times and gone in and trace be fine I find myself waiting now for hours until she moves again because
Because it's just so hard to track her. They never sorted my daily monitoring properly but not sure even that would help as that only sorts me for that particular time. She really worries me on a morning sometimes when she is silent for hours when I wake up and I think somethings happened overnight. She had been really good this week but def doing it again these last couple days. I had to turn my wifi and data off yesterday as everywhere I looked was either friends asking me if any news (friends I hadn't spoke to in ages!) Grr, stuff about stillbirths or stuff about people posting on Facebook about their wriggly babies and being kicked all day and night. I'm just so anxious now I couldn't deal with it all felt like it was all being rubbed in my face. Everyday goes on ages and ages now and I spend a lot of time sitting crying worrying and starting to feel sick and dizzy all the time from it heart racing etc. So hopefully my consultant tomorrow understands. I'm 38 weeks today and plan was with all her movements between 37-38 weeks so fingers crossed. I'm not sure it's good for her me being so so overly anxious I just want her out safe. I was always going to be anxious after multiple earlier losses but the movements have really added to that.. I couldn't do pregnancy ever again unless I had one of these babies all my friends seem to have that keep them awake at night and kick all day!
I've been taking evening primrose oil and raspberry lead tea capsules for a while to help soften cervix, tried nipped stimulation, clary sage oil which smells lovely and helps relax a little but doesn't really do much else lol, ate a whole pineapple, spice, sex a lot, walking,birthing ball, a bloody pregnancy dance with frigging slut drops in lol (youtube baby mama dance) , pressing acupressure points. Done everything lol. I have had tons of pains this week that go regular then they stop..they even got closer together the night before last then went on way to hosp

It's a shame as I love it when she does move and I'm going to cry at not being pregnant anymore and having her as all mine but really can't cope with tracking her movements anymore. Everytime I visit they say how important they are to track but I can't track them there's no pattern I'd be in so much lol xxx
