Sorry I've been rubbish at posting been trying to spend as much time with my little girl as possible before the arrival of our little one.
So how is everyone? What have you all been up to? Have any babies decided to arrive early?
We've decorated their room again as they will be sharing for a while which will save us having to move for now
As much as we were set on not finding out we decided that we'd like the best of both worlds as we didn't did out with our first little girl. So at our 20 week scan we decided to ask and there he was in all his glory! Hehe a Little Boy! We're over the moon but were soooo convinced it was another girlie! I'm rubbish at guessing, I got it wrong both times!! Haha
So I'm 39+2 today and he's still sitting comfy my due date was adjusted to 4th April so just 5 days to go! Ha my little girl was born at 37+5 so this is my longest pregnancy and I'm expecting to go over although at the moment I'm still sleeping well and getting around quite comfortably so we'll see just a waiting game now really
When are you due rachn3babies? Xx

glad alls well with you and congratulations on a boy, one of each! thats great!
my boys were both lazy and overdue.. fingers crossed you have yours in the next couple of days
im not due till the 23rd so still 3 weeks left seems like forever especially as little madam is already measuring big!! she was 7lb at 35 weeks.. i have another scan and appt in a week to see whether she needs bringing early
how has your pregnancy gone? hope its been smooth for you do you have any names picked out yet? xx

Hehe yeh I've got a feeling this little boy will be late too. I really must stop reading old wives tales of possible labour signs though. I keep thinking oh tonight could be the night because of so and so and none of them have been right yet!! Haha I've had a really good pregnancy again which is fab just really looking forward to him arriving now as didn't have this waiting feeling with my daughter as she came early!
This little man was predicted as 6lbs 9ozs at 36 weeks so I'm hoping he doesn't gain too much more weight before birth. They didn't say they were worried or I needed any intervention though so hoping to have another natural labour
How early will they induce you if you're still measuring big? Did you have your boys naturally?
Yes we've picked a name and my little girlie nearly blurts it out every time we spend time with people! Haha hoping to keep it a surprise until he's here though have you got a name yet? What are your little boys called? Xx

im not sure but the consultant i saw at 21 weeks promised they wouldnt let me go over my due date.. yes both my boys were natural no one expected lewis to be as big as he was and everyone still looks at me like im mad when i say he was 11lbs.. lol my 2 are charlie and lewis. we're calling the baby Alice i had no chance of keeping my 2 quiet about it lol! its great theyve been involved all the way through and seem to be excited now.. we told them she was coming after the easter bunny had been so they kept asking yesterday why she wasnt here yet! lol! fingers crossed shes as impatient as the rest of us and comes on her own early im officially full term tomorrow
hope your little boy doesnt keep you waiting too much longer xx

Yes my little man Jake William is here!! he was born on Wednesday 3rd April at 11.30am weighing 8lbs 14ozs! One big boy for me considering my daughter was only 7lbs 3ozs! Labour was 10h 50m but that's because he was back to back mw said it would have progressed a lot quicker if he wasn't. I didn't have any pain releif but had to be monitored the whole time as our heart rates were higher than they'd liked!
He's absolutely gorgeous though! Such a good boy and his big sister loves him to bits! He's 12days old today and is just over his birth weight after losing just 2 ounces on day 5 so doing really well he does have a bit of jaundice which they want to see gone by weds otherwise he'll have to go for a blood test so hoping its gone by then!
How's all with you?? Xx

Aww congratulations I keep checking back here to see if you posted. Really happy for you:) I was advised to keep my boys near the window for natural light when they were born to get rid of jaundice.. I'm sure you already know that but it worked for me I thought I was in labour yesterday.. Had pains all day that got considerably worse I went in to get checked at 930 and found out at 2am it was a uti and my cervix is still high and long :/ I'm getting induced in 8 days now though so not long to wait xx

Aww fab! Congratulations! Ill have a read of your story when I get a minute
Jake is good putting on lots of weight and has gained a pound since birth he's still got his jaundice but his tests came back normal so nothing to worry about there with is good just getting used to being a mummy of two and learning how to juggle them both ha I'm loving it though! How are your other little ones adjusting to Alice? Xx
