You're so lucky, KC! I can't wait to feel movement!

I think there's something wrong with my scales. For three weeks now, it's said I weigh exactly 60.0kg, but my jeans are definitely getting tighter.

I don't want to look at any other scales now.

Sorry, CC, no useful advice here either. scrubbing the floor is supposed to help, though, and if it doesn't fix the baby at least you'll have a nice clean floor. The midwife at my clinic also said to make sure you keep your feet and legs warm -- something about warming up your uterus from the bottom so the baby will be attracted to the warmth. I'm not really a good person to guarantee effectiveness, though, although I wasn't exactly faithful about doing all that stuff, either. I hope your baby is more cooperative than mine!

Nice to have a positive update from you KC - its lovely when u start feeling movement!

I'm still here! Seems that all the braxton hicks i had on tuesday night were a false alarm as i've had pretty much nothing since - could be looking at a christmas baby after all! Please keep sending eviction vibes this way!

When I was expecting ds I appeared not to put weight on on the scales for weeks and weeks! My bump was growing but I lost weight round my face etc so I think my weight just kept at a constant for a while!

Anecdotally, I have quite a few friends who reckon a big glass of wine is the way to go. Sort of makes sense in terms of a mother being in the right frame of mind to give birth when they are relaxed and contented. I know it's easy to get steadily more tense as the due date approaches and passes which I'm sure doesn't help!

Good luck.

I feel like i'm hogging this thread a bit at the moment :oops: but just popping in to say hi, and let you know that i'm still here :D ! I've kind of resigned myself to the fact that my womb is obviously far too comfy and that this baby is in no rush to come out... so well be a post not pre- christmas baby. I'm just hoping that i can avoid induction as i'm 41+3 now officially (though i think i'm actually a bit less) :?

Hope that everyone else is doing well, and looking forward to christmas!

Glad you sound more relaxed anyway LCM! Fingers crossed for no induction for you.

I saw the midwife on Thursday...what a waste of time! Listened to the baby's heartbeat for 5 seconds, asked 2 questions and that was it, they'll see me end of march. Well worth a 60 mile round trip from work for that! At least I don't have to go back for a while.

I'm nearly 17 weeks and still being sick. Not nearly as much but still feel sick 24 hrs a day, just wish I could have a break from it. Hyperemesis was better this time than with DS...but with DS I felt mostly better by 14 weeks...I was so sure I'd feel better by now. I can't take another 23 weeks of this!

How is everyone else feeling?

Awwww sm, hope you feel better soon. I thought midwife appt waste of time too, although at least we know babies are still ok.

I'm feeling better than I was, had a rough night last night as didn't go to bed on time but in general I'm ok, as long a I eat regularly and nap during the day.

Baby brain has cost me £15 though and a pain in the arse. I know it's not a lot of money but it's money I could have done with not wasting. Just realised I've ordered a load of photos I don't need and not the ones I actually do need. All Christmas presents of course so no chance of them being here in time for Christmas now.

Bah! Was coming on here after a busy few days hoping to see a new lion cub :) come on, baby!

SM: I had similar with the HB midwife today - 10 secs on checks and a long list of what they want and need, and the only time she asked me/us what we wanted was whether vitamin K was injection or oral, and even then came with a 'we prefer to do injection' ARGH. Hope the sickness stops of you very soon (especially with Christmas food!).

Thanks Rah. Midwife appointments this time round seem to be a bit of a tick box exercise! It's a shame yours was too. I always assume the HB midwives would be more interested? Probably giant assumption!

I have Christmas food planned that I hope I'll feel like eating! Mediterranean style salmon fillet, a maple glazed ham with nice breads, and a really fresh light vegetable and feta salad. Not a roast in sight as even the thought of the smell is too much for me! But hoping for a better day nausea-wise on Wednesday!

Well that's it for 2013 babies then... Gulp.

I'm a bit scared. The puppy was super super calm in utero and is an utter whirlwind now. This.one is never still, we think she may put the puppy to shame and make.him look like a calm toddler. Gulp. I struggle to believe we will make a calm baby between us.

Just been to physio because my bum keeps.aching or.feeling like it has trapped nerves. Got a.load of exercises that I shall try to do although I k ow myself well enough to not.hold out too much hope. Sigh.

AkC, hope your spd isn't too bad.

MP, R was way more active than P in utero but he's super zen now. There is hope...
