Hi ladies!

Aww Thanks for thinking of me!

STILL pregnant im afraid!

still smiling just about, really starting to find it tough now, my back is in agony and desperately trying to keep walking so gravity can help things along!

on the plus side, like Kirsty said - the army have granted Peter his Pat leave early as he has to go to Kenya for 6 week on the 1st march - so at least he wont miss the birth and will hopefully have a week with the baby before he has to go!

Have my 40 week appointment tomorrow and the hospital are aware of our situation so hopefulyl will have some good news for me!!

Cervix is fully effaced but still nearly 1cm thick so just desperately trying to get it paper thin! Have had 4 - yes 4 - sweeps now, and still not a sausage!

Hoping the 5th will get thigns moving and if not im looking to buy a stick of dynomite from somewhere!!

Will let you know what happens tomorrow..

Lots of love to you and babies

Have u tried evening primrose capsules? sex?

Will keep my fingers x bubs makes an appearance sooner rather than later, so hubby gets time b4 he goes.

havnt tried the evening primrose hun, how do you take it?

drinking about 4-5 cups of RLT a day, and since hubby been home daily sex as uncomfortable as it is!

Also eat about 9 pineapples and am on the birthing ball for about 2 hours a day...

u insert it at nite.

i suppose u can only do what ur doing. but unless baby is ready nothing will happen.

what about a long trip on a bumpy bus??

Awww, at least you have a date should things not get moving by then hun, so you've got a rough idea of when Bean will arrive. :)
Fingers crossed he/she makes their grand entrance soon! :D xxx
Get out walking. Dnt wanna put u off induction. But after 2 normal deliveries and being induced this 3rd time. Havin the pitocin was hellish. Look into it more b4 u go through with it. I wish someone had told me too xx

Loves weight.. training!
My goodness I'm shocked at how many sweeps they've given you! ((Hugs))
My MW's wouldn't go near till 10 days over! lol

Sorry missed the boat on the RLT tablets - not sure where time goes honestly. Hope you can forgive me.

Really hope all goes well for you when Lo does show up :) enjoy the rest while you can and relax as much as you can. Glad your DH is home too. x
Oh, how I feel for you! My DH lived abroad when both of ours were born. When I had DS he came back the day before my due date for his 4 week paternity leave, and day after day passed and no baby! I was SO desperate! I tried everything you have mentioned, as well as reflexology and acupuncture. I had at least 7 sweeps... Nothing worked! In the end, I gave up trying to start labour and decided to chill with a glass of wine (rare treat as it is when pg!) and some pregnancy friendly sushi. A few hours later I went into labour!

I went into labour naturally with both of mine, but both were 12 days late and I had to fight against being induced with my DS (policy was to induce at term+10). I just did not like what I had read about induced labours - read up before you accept it so you know what to expect.

Anyway, fingers crossed that won't be needed!!! Lots of labour vibes coming your way and hopefully you will go into labour tonight!
