    My Bubba is still happily breech, and I am meant to be having a c-section this Friday... But the clinic was meant to call me on Friday to confirm the time, when I rang that afternoon, the lady had already gone home and isn't in until Tuesday, and no one else knows... Just feeling a tad frustrated. I really like my OB, but with how anxious I feel all the time - is the baby still moving, etc etc you all know! - it would be nice to have some confirmation! Sorry for the whinge. Take care beautiful ladies.

    I hope you get some answers soon, I can imagine how frustrated you are and think they are lucky you haven't blasted them by now ( great control on your behalf). Try and relax by the sounds of it, it will all be happening before you know it.

    Mrs simmo - I didn't feel any BH with my first pregnancy, but holy! I have been getting them since 20 odd weeks this time and they are annoying!! My tummy tightens (visibly rounds out) and I get stabbing pain in my cervix... (tmi) ESP if im standing up.

    Meshell - I took heaps of maternity pads into hospital last time (I actually commented on another thread about lochia a while ago) but had virtually NO post partum bleeding - the middy asked me how my 'loss' was and I had to ask her what she meant... Lucky I guess - although other posters commented that it's not 'normal' to not bleed - erhum, it was for me, and i hope for a repeat!

As for induction I've heard the pain is bad as its trying to make your body do something which it isn't ready to do n the pain is rather intensified. As for pain relief post birth just like Panadol or something? Also post partum bleeding is it very bad??
    Natural labour is best if possible and they say your way more likely to need an epidural if you are induced ( cause during a natural labour the process is spread over hours ( my waters broke just before 2am and I had him about 3pm) where as when your induced the whole thing is a lot quicker and the body can't adjust to the pain, from what i have been told I expect it's like comparing a punch with a push. I totally respect all those who have had to endure the pain of the punch.

    I was only given panadol and even though I was still in some pain ( with the tear and the afterbirth pains- uterus contracting back to normal size) I found it was all I really needed. Can't remember the bleeding to be too bad was down to like a light period within a couple a days. Did get normal period exactly a month from the day he was born though which sucked big time cause I had heard you don't get them while breast feeding ( had some that didn't get theirs the whole time they bf) guess its like the stretch mark issue, your either lucky or your not.

    Oh mrs simmo, I wasn't getting any Braxton hicks till I reached 34 weeks, now I seem to get them all the time. Like dragon said, your whole tummy goes so tight and full of pressure for a while then releases. I sometimes get pain in my pelvis along with them, they feel very strange but not painful, more uncomfortable than anything

    Yep I get that too, just all part and parcel of your bubba growing and moving. I can't get up in a hurry anymore as its a sharp pain that makes you stop short and catch your breathe for a second. Sometimes bubs could be against a nerve too. If your worried call your midwife or hospital and speak to someone though. Mind you, I'm only a first timer too, just what I have read in books

    If you can take a heat/ice pack to hospital, I say do it! Never know what you are in for. Some need ice for their bits after bruising or a tear - I needed heat for my c section wound - it really helped.

    I'm one of those that has had full on bleeding after birth and mega pain not so much from one stitch it's more from internal pelvic bruising. The pain was incredible this morning 24 hours after delivery. I started with Panadol then took the works, I was so stressed out it was affecting my breastfeeding, heart rate etc and ultimately would affect Jaan. The benefit of having an obs they will prescribe what you need.
    From my research into induction I had already decided I would have an epi if i needed induction as the contractions can roll one into the other with no relief. And I'm pro calm birth! I do think its important not to have a traumatic experience though as can lead to stress to baby so it's all about balancing the pros and cons when you find out your own situation at the time.
