    Hi ladies, have only just found this thread-where has it been all my life! !???

    I'm 41yo and 32weeks. I recognise a few names from other threads. Wave :-)

    Going into this birth pretty anxious. I always presumed I'd be given a caesar due to my age (I'm doing shared care with a private Ob and having Bub at public hospital in Cairns which has fantastic service). But I have had a trouble free pregnancy so there's been no talk of it. Of course I'm just anxious to get the little fella out with the least stress to both of us.

    mammalinz - Phew! so pleased to hear the blood test came back all good. best wishes for the scan.

    MusicalGal - G'day again.

    Also fortunate to have had a fairly trouble free pregnancy here. Slightly swollen feet, and carpal tunnel in my right hand/arm. No problems with high blood pressure or gestational diabetes, and I've been walking a fair bit. The only thing is that they said the baby is measuring big. They made me do the glucose tolerance test twice but both times said I didn't have GD - not even borderline. So the baby is big for other reasons - maybe genetic, since DP is a big bloke, or maybe I've been feeding them too well.

    Various doctors that I saw at the Mater recommended inducing 7-10 days early, due to the increased risks of stillbirth in the late stages, with my age and the big baby. A friend of mine lost her little boy to a stillbirth, I'm extra nervous because of that, and she urged me to go ahead with the induction (sorry I don't want to be negative and scare anyone, just expressing my neurotic state). (My friend did go on to have two healthy babies later, so a happy ending, but still a horrible time) In the end I gave in and will be starting the induction process 7 days before my due date, at 39 weeks.

    I'll be going to acupuncture this morning, and then plan to walk around for a few hours - maybe help get things going naturally.

    Chook -how exciting! It's mostly because of the baby being big that they want to induce you, isn't it?
    Mammalinz that's excellent news that your blood levels are rising. Good luck with the scan on Wednesday.
    Hi MusicalGal. I too am having a pretty good pregnancy and like you assumed I'd be having a Caesarian or at least be induced early cos of my age. But have been told my I'm being treated like any other pregnancy. I guess we'll just have to wait and see as it gets closer.

    mammalinz - hope your scan goes well tomorrow.

    TeamPanda - It's the combination of age and the big baby, but the doc we talked to on the day said the risk of anything going wrong is still small.

    Everything looking good this morning, I can feel movements and listened to the heartbeat with my doppler. Hopefully will be back with a positive announcement in a day or two.

    Since starting maternity leave have been seriously nesting here. During the last few days have done a lot of odd jobs around the house, have gone through all the stuff we've been given, assembled furniture and washed and put away baby clothes.

    Have just gone through my hospital bag again, now will rest ready for tonight.

    Oh Chook, I'm feeling so emotional for you. Good luck and look forward to hearing some news in the next few days. Sounds like you have a lot of energy in these last few days. Hope I do too when I get closer!
