Oh my goodness Laura! That must have melted your heart! So gorgeous..

That's completely rubbish Sprout - how on earth did they manage that? How frustrating..

Naughty body went into fake labour mode again yesterday, period pains, so irritable all day, went to the loo 5 times (sorry!) then regular tightenings then nothing. So odd, I didn't have a single niggle with Poppy so I guess i'm just not used to it. Apparently your uterus is more sensitive second time round so even a kick in a funny place can set off all sorts..

Millie I really feel for you sweet.. you need to stop getting yourself into such a state Is there a particular reason you're so scared of stillbirth or is it your anxiety preying on it? The chances are just minuscule and you've been monitored so closely, there's nothing more you can do to keep Imogen safe you just need to trust your body and the doctors (and her!) I also go hours with baby going quiet and then she'll have a mad hour where she doesn't stop so it isn't just you having these lulls in movement hun. Remember that they sleep a lot in there and your friends being kicked constantly are definitely exaggerating.. I think it's a really good idea that you've disconnected yourself a bit, it won't do any good googling stats and things that can go wrong. Is there anyone who can come over/take you out just to get your mind off of baby for a while? Sounds like you're being totally consumed by it all and your brain could do with a rest.. Sending love and hope tomorrow goes well xx

Sorry for fake labour mode yesterday Kate such a tease when that happens lol. Hope the real thing happens soon for you!

I'm not sure, there are a couple people I used to work with who had them and I guess with friends saying they had movement constantly makes me feel something is really wrong. It makes me feel better though you say they are exaggerating .. I get so upset on my Facebook feed seeing people post saying stuff about how much their baby kicks and never stops and don't get to sleep because of kicks etc.
I feel on the bad side of statistics too I think that's why I'm convinced something will go wrong! When I came off my pill I was 20 and read most people my age conceived within 3 months which didn't happen for me then I had multiple miscarriages which again is meant to be low risk in your 20s and then I had hypermesis at the start of this which I read again isn't common. I just feel if anything happens it will be to me as I'm on the wrong side of statistics. Lol I know that sounds silly just so desperate for her to be safe. All friends etc are working today it definitely isn't helping being in the house etc. Hoping tomorrow and actually sorting a plan will make me feel more positive xxx

I know how you feel Kate! It feels like it's time then it stops.

Oh Millie you poor thing! You have to stay away from Google and try not to let it worry you so much. We're almost there, I'm sure Imogen is okay. Try not to panic now that you are so close. I try to stay away from Google now too, and I had to temporarily remove a facebook friend from my newsfeed because she likes to post sad birth stories and stories of moms dying when in labor or c-section and stuff like that or sick babies and stuff. I don't think she's doing it on purpose but I just couldn't handle it. Especially after she did a story about a 50 year old lady who had her first child and how she died right after c-section and didn't get to see her baby and stuff like that. I don't need to read that stuff right now so she's off my feed temporarily. Just try to stay away from facebook and Google until after Imogen is born. The safest transition from pregnancy to birth, as long as baby is fine, is to let it all happen naturally. Especially in a single birth where baby is doing fine. Now if something is wrong then induction becomes the safest route I've been told. Induction is no walk in the park either and carries risks for mom and baby I've been told, as well as c-section. So hopefully T.J. comes by 40 weeks so it can happen naturally. This is definitely a scary time in more ways than one but just try to relax and breath. We're almost there.

Oh Millie had a little taste of what you're going through yesterday, got into the car and realised bub hadn't really been moving much, so gave him a good few pokes which has always got him kicking before...tried to get him to move for what felt like ages (probably about 5 minutes) and then started to panic...I could feel all the blood drain from my face. Half of me was trying to reassure myself and the other half was imagining horrible things...then, finally, he goes and gives me a big whack! Best feeling ever. But yes, I can totally understand just wanting her out, however much you know everything's likely to be fine.

Millie I know how you feel, I was so worried about stillbirth I kept having nightmares about it right up until the girls were born. Even just before going in for the csection I demanded a ctg to check on the girls because I needed to know they were still ok. One of them never moved much, and now that she's here, she's a bit of a less wriggly sleeper than her sister.

Imogen will be fine and she will be here soon. You'll feel so much relief, but you'll worry about other things once she is here. I find the worry much less now that I can look over and physically see the munchkins. xxx

Millie your poor thing. Anxiety is absolutely horrible & totally plays on your weakness & thoughts. I know it's easy to say but it is so so rare. Just keep pushing the hospital for monitoring, scans etc. Go sit in triage until they do something if it makes you feel better.

We went in every day the week leading up to Roberts birth as I knew something was happening! So they had to do the tests etc as I refused to leave until they had. And when we went into premature labour I still had to push them as they tried to fob me off saying I wasn't in labour but I was right. Anyway what I'm trying to say is trust your gut, if you don't feel right then go in and demand help, tests etc whatever will make your anxiety ease as you are right, the worrying won't help either of you.

It won't be long and Immy will be in your arms safe and well. Sending love and hug xxxxxx

Looks like I'm joining January mummies I'm currently 35 + 3 days been in and out of hospital due to reduced movements and growth she has growth restriction and my placentas not functioning like it should do the plan is to induce me on Monday when I will be 35+6 they wanted to get me to 37 weeks but the stress of hospital visits and worrying over movements they booked me in sooner! They say it may take a while for induction to start but if any problems arise I'll be closely monitored and may need c section! They also a chance of her being in special care because she's coming early and she's so small!

Had discussion with consultant today and induction booked for the 22nd
So 39+3. They are happy with her last scan and the traces and said my anxiety won't affect her so just try going a little longer. Said I can come in twice a day if I have to if I worry about movements and don't just sit at home etc. Seeing midwife this week where hopefully will get sweep beforehand xxx

At least you know exactly where you are sweetie, seems like a good compromise - are you happy with the outcome? We're all here to help you through with the anxiety, you'll be on your way to seeing Imogen in less than 10 days!!! xx

Thank you xxxx

Yeah I think I am. I mean I just want her here safe asap but the less chance of her getting distressed during birth the better and also she said 39 weeks will really minimise chances of anything like feeding problems as although full term is 37-42 she said some natural gestations are 42 so therefore 37-38 is taking earlier than baby wants if that makes sense lol and since she seems happy on scans and traces then 39 is best for her. If it was going off 3rd scan which showed not good growth she said it would be different weighing up risks and benefits but as all seems okay apart from the fact she has no pattern then she may just be a baby with no pattern but they understand how anxious a time it is so agreed on 39. Will defo be hard the next 9 days till I can go in but they said come for monitoring whenever and don't sit and worry at home etc. Come this far now so I suppose an extra week and couple of days to ensure she is defo ready is worth it. Xxx

Countdown is on Millie!! How exciting! Can't wait So are you hoping for sweep and then induction? At 39 weeks, you're at a great gestation for induction to work. We tried mine at 36 weeks and they weren't budging. I recommend you take an air bed and so your OH has somewhere comfy to stay next to you if it's allowed to and lots of snacks. I thought babies would arrive on the day of induction, but they ended up unable to accommodate me in delivery unit and instead admitting for two nights before even starting induction, so be prepared as I was very disappointed and upset.

Bethany 35+6 is pretty good! Try not to worry too much. Lots of twin mum friends of mine had their babies between 28-35 weeks as it's common for them to come early and babies have been fine. Like you say, some needed a bit of time in SCBU but many didn't at 36 weeks which you'll very nearly be at. He/she might be quite diddy but a bigger baby isn't necessarily more developed than a smaller one of the same gestation if you see what I mean.

We had a photographer come to take pictures of H&H today. They were here 4 hours and I'm so glad they've gone now. It has been a bit exhausting trying to move the babies around as they wanted them in different poses and I was lactating a lot and needed to get on the pump and have a shower.. we didn't get to eat until he left at 1pm so it's been a bit of a trying day. OH and I both so tired and arguments are starting to happen about who last did a nappy or feed. Need to breath and try to be patient with each other! xxx
