Impatient Mama
OK, it is getting ridiculous now. I have been having prelabour for 5 weeks already and I am over it. Come on bubba, if you are going to cause Mummy grief then the least you can do is make me go into full labour, not this start/stop business you've been doing!!! I think she's decided to hibernate for the winter. At this rate she'll probably go overdue (and by then I will be climbing the walls). Plus the crappy weather is making me feel even worse because I feel so unmotivated to do anything.

But hey, at least I know she will be as healthy as possible when she does come and maybe she'll be a better sucker than Ned was in the early days. She has dropped further now as indicated by the head bouncing on the exit and the tiny and frequent peeing! Here she is at the moment:

Better go....

I'm still here.....
But probably not for too much longer. I am having a lot of pressure and period cramping/contractions now so I think it will probably happen some time in the next week. I am still a little bit dilated and she is really moving down now. Matt is starting to get impatient :) Ned is clingyer (is that a word?) than ever and will not let me out of his site. Anyway, here is a belly shot from the other day:
Apart from the above I am feeling pretty good though so hopefully all will go as planned and I will get a VBAC with this bub. The obstetrician is pretty confident I can do it which is a great confidence boost and very important to actually achieving it I believe. At the moment she is in a good position so fingers crossed....
Off to look around the web now.

Made it!
Yay - I made it to 36 weeks. Things have realy settled down now and I haven't had any more contractions (well not more than a few a day anyway) since about Wednesday so I am thinking that I will now make 37 weeks too. I think she has found a comfy position and is reluctant to leave it. Well that and its very cold outside my tummy, as I keep telling her. I am glad because Ned has been sick with bronchiolitis again and I wouldn't want to leave him when he has been how he has and I also wouldn't want to expose a newborn to it.

Anyway, just a quick update...

She's in a Rush....
Well I had my 34 week obstetrician appointment yesterday and told him about the contractions I'd been having (as close as 10 mins apart over 4 hours the day before and irregularly for the past week). So, given Ned came early, he decided to do all my swabs and an internal to see what was happening. I am already a cm dilated and she is engaged. So my hopes of making it to 37 weeks are looking pretty dicey. I am not going to go into labour in the next few days but more likely the end of next week or the week after. Inconvenient for everyone really as I have lots of plans next week and Matt is going to Melbourne for an awards dinner on Friday. My ob is going away the week after next. So if she is going to come she has to either come next weekend (19th/20th) or the weekend after (26th/27th). I'd prefer the latter but it is more than likely she will come the earlier dates. Plus the hospital is overflowing at the moment so that's also a concern.

What is more of a concern is how DD will cope on the outside and if she has to stay in hospital after I am sent home. I don't know how I will cope having to travel back and forth to the hospital for feeds etc and with Ned in tow? I am willing her to stay put as long as possible and hopefully she will listen to me. If I can make 36 weeks at least she might be able to come home when I do.....fingers (and legs) crossed!

34 Weeks
The contractions/stretching pains are starting to notch up another gear and things are starting to get ready for labour. Matt is going away on the 18th so my money is either then or the week after because my obstetrician will be going away the week after and it will be 36 weeks (when Ned was born). I can only hope that she will stay in there until 37 weeks. Nausea is getting worse at night too and I can only lie on my left hand side to stop it. I am also having trouble bending well and truly now and lifting Ned is getting impossible.

Anyway, here is this weeks belly shot:


You can see how round I am now, particularly in the bare skin shot. I have another appointment on Thursday. Will post again after that.
