hi there just wanted to ask some advice! im coming up 39 wks on sunday, and my 'bits' are feeling quite swollen - is this normal? bubs is really low and pretty much fully engaged and in the right position, theres alot of pressure down there feel so heavy just want her out! im constantly having to wee all the time even if its the littlest amount. last night had a horrible sleep couldnt get comfy got up at least 5 - 6 times to wee and was feeling like its swollen down there and lots of pressure. so just wanted to ask if anyone has had the same feeling and is it normal or not?? when she moves sometimes i get like sharp pains in my bits too. with DD i never got this, she was born at 39 wks- my waters were trickling out and contractions were irregular so was induced after 24hrs. so any advice wopuld be great!
i got my prescription stuff for heart burn and have to say is the most nastiest tasting stuff ever !! had to take it twice almost spewed it all back out first time!!! but it did work for rest of day and night!
hi there! i live on a dairy farm, have a 2 yr old DD and due for 2nd DD in 2 wks! are u in nz or auz? i grew up on a sheep n beef farm myself and wouldnt have it any other way for my kids! my DD loves outdoors and animals so its the perfect lifestyle for us to bring up our family on
im 37 n 1/2 wks and still have heart burn its awfull!!! i thought it would have gone as bubs has dropped and well engaged but nope! so finally getting prescription stuff for it so will have releif finally!!!! i tried not to take much for it as mylanta and galviscon can cause a build up of antacids in the long run if you take it to often (what i was told by MW anyway!) nothing worked for me id try the quickeze but 10 min later ilt come back again just awfull heart burn!
good luck kylie fingers crossed for you your bub comes! saw my back up midwife yesterday and look likes shell be my LMC now as my midwife is still sick (my last visit with her was before xmas) and will be suppossedly for awhile still woulda p****d me off but i really like my back up so not that worried and had her for last few visits anyway. just a bit anoying when you choose someone then when you only got 2 or so wks left they arent there for u. everything still all good with lil lady still same position n what not growing perfect, MW said she has a feeling il go early so fingers crossed shes right thatl make me happy! all my bloods n iron levels are great and mid-stream urine clear so thats good! and yay got a script for my heart burn so will finally get releif from that!!! any way sending good labour vibes to all u ladies due!
hi there, like everone else said dont go over board on clothes they do grow out of the small 0000 so fast! i got alot of suits given as gifts and some of them were never even worn! we had i tight budget and rarely only got what we needed which was cot and matress, car seat, stroller, the basic clothes onsies and body suits really are the best! got given a change table with a bath in it literaly only used a handfull of times found easier giving her a shower with her dad! and changed her on a mat on the lounge floor! bouncer are also a great buy!! and just all those bits like nappys , wipes etc etc youll firgure it out right away!
