OMG Girls, What is going on. Everyone now has been or are in hospital.
Mary, I really hope you are not heading towards being in labour. If you are through remember that are more than 28 weeks. When I was pregnant with my twins I kepped asking my Doctor at what stage will my twins survive. Every fornight be would say nothing. Then at 27 weeks he said all would be ok. You are a week and a half past that.
It is totally natural to be scared. Just take each hour as it comes and if bub arrives soon you are in the best place. Of course you don't want bub arriving early, but 28 1/2 is a great effort. Pick your doctors brain and find out everything you are worried about. You asked me a while back about breast pumps. I have a electric Meldela swing. I love it.

Hi Kath, Glad everything has settled down for you at the moment. As for braxton hicks. I was the same as you. The more I did the worse they got. Mine started getting very painfull. Wear I would have to try and breath slower.
The last few weeks I did't do much at all. Try to slow down a little. Easier said than done. Great that bub is a good weight. The same weight as my twin sister when she was born. 4 pounds 4 oz. I was 3 pound 12 oz. We were born at 31 weeks.

Rae, Glad you are now home and ok. I can't believe all you girls have now had a trip to hospital. Like the other girls have said, if anything changes go straight back to hospital. Its annoying that the hospital classes that as a booked in visit to the hospital. We ivf girls have paid enough. I have to pay a excess of $500 twice a year to go to hospital.
As long as bub is fine that is all that matter though. It will not be long till you are all mum's. It is so normal to feel a bit scared. I remember being in hospital early with my twins. I would hear the ladies in labour yelling. I would lay in bed and cover my ears, but can't be that bad as most women go back to have more childen. Thinking of you. Just take each day as it comes.
Take care Kel xxx
