In your notes nds they should write what babys position is, mine did explain what she was feeling to me as well.
Getting fed up of the lack of sleep ,my o/h told me Ive started snoring pretty bad which is common in pregnancy apparantly but Im so embarassed :/ Not to mention I cannot lay on one side for to long without getting terrible pains down my legs.
Im desperate to get to the end now, it just feels like its never going to get here.

just had a look in my notes.. don't understand them lol..
last one says (if anyone knows?) - presentation 'ceph' or caph i can't read the writing.. engagement 'brim' and lie 'long'?

same here.. feels like i've been pregnant forever now.. all be worth it but definitely feeling the same claire xxx



edit - just had a quick google and have worked out that baby is head down, lying straight up and down which although i don't understand what that means read it's a good thing and that brim means shes at the top of my pelvis ready to engage. so all good from what i understand x

quick update from me.
been in hospital for last 30 hours - had reduced fetal movement so have been put on monitors three times, last two have been perfect. was sent for a scan which shows baby is measuring very small, but fluids placenta etc are all fine and normal. have had steroid injection last night just about to have my second dose - not pleasant especially in the bum! - to help mature babys lungs incase of early delivery - then off home we go, back in a week to remeasure fluids blood flow then back in two weeks to remeasure baby and go from there. maternity leave automatically commences so off work as of now even though only had a week left which i'm grateful for to be honest as was struggling



any news from anyone? hope everyones okay. keep us updated! xxx

Oh goodness nds sounds very eventful and worrying. Sounds like youve got the opposite problem to me, we have another scan tomorrow to measure her again and check my fluid as thats a bit high. I suspect she might be around 7 and a half pound tomorrow which freaks me out especially if theyre going to let me go over due. :/
Will update tomorrow, you look after yourself x

Hi ladies, had my scan and she is bigger than average but following the upper line on the chart. Now estimated to be 7lb 9oz Shocked , waters are borderline. Was a different consultant today, he said he's not concerned and theres no need for any more scans. However because Ive had a previous section then I need to meet with my consultant and discuss a plan of dates etc..

I havent had any leaky boobs as yet, I dont think I'll have baby before due date now to be honest.

it sure was! hubby was more worried than me though bless him.. i think she will just be taking after me as i'm only tiny but it's still a waiting game, just wish we knew the answers..

hey don't forget these are just estimates though and could be off!
keep us updated on what your consultant decides?

getting fed up of this early hours cramping though lol.
mrs s let us know how your scan goes.
hope everyone is well otherwise xxxxx

Nds, that must have been frightening but least you were in the right place!

Nutty, it's just an estimate so don't worry too much - easier said than done I know!!

Mrs s, feels like my milk is coming in but not had any leakage yet - will always remember one morning when feeding Tilly that as I went to latch her on my milk shot half way across the room as I was full to the brim!!!

Getting super tired now, waddling as well so just want to meet the little nugget now as I just want to lie how I want in bed - bought a wedge bump pillow and it's fabulous!!!

I've got one session of outside work left and then I can get my last few orders out - don't officially finish until nov 3rd 😳.

Baby is head down and at rim too, m/w said she wouldn't be surprised to see fully engaged at next appt.

it sure was!
that's fab to hear, she's getting ready then Very Happy
you're doing great to keep working - i'm glad i'm not having to work my last week, i am so sore and tired now, good on you!

i've felt a couple of times like i was waddling but i think it was probably more making sure i didnt wet myself (which actually i think i may have done slightly the other morning cringe!)

are you guys keeping active? i'm too tired to want to do anything Sad i'm cat sitting for the next two weeks so that's a half an hour walk every day for me and have been bouncing on my ball a little.. is that meant to help?

Id say its likely to be braxton hicks and baby dropping more into your pelvis. Probably worth just mentioning anyway at your appointment as they can reassure you.
Ive noticed Im getting braxton hicks more often now, wish it was labour instead lol. Getting fed up of my uncomfortable swollen feet now, they feel so tight and sore and Im also getting pains in my hands through the night and by the time I get up its hard to grip anything. Apparantly its common in pregnancy to get carpel tunnel syndrome :/ I had no idea.

Yeh Ive heard water helps to be honest I couldnt drink any more lol. When I get my braxton hicks my whole bump goes rock hard and feels quite uncomfortable. Its hard to describe but theres no mistaking them.
3 weeks left today and it just feels like its never going to end, I just cant imagine it ever being over lol. Got midwife and then a consultant appointment next tuesday. We are going to hopefully have an idea of dates etc then, Im not keen on going over due with her size and am hoping they may offer induction at least on my due date.

yeah im hoping they suggest induction for me at 38 weeks as they discussed, they defo wont let me over 40weeks, im surprised theyre letting you over? with it being FET pregnancy, you would think ivf and FET would be similar! x

Theyve not even mentioned the fertility treatment , from all what Ive read online pregnancies are normally treated the same as natural pregnancies :/ Just goes to show how it varies from each trust.
