    Unfortunately there is not much you can take. I would try regular paracetamol, and a heat pack. But it should ease with time, after the initial "stretching".

    Mumgo has a sale today with a hospital bag pre packed with toiletries and a few other things, and they also have cheap maternity pads. I've ordered some, so at least I'll have the start of a hospital bag.

    I had a look at the pre-packed bags before they were on mumgo, they seem to be a bit of a rip off if I'm honest! 6 nappies? I think I went through at least 12 on the first day lmao.
    They're a nice idea, but not practical enough IMO. I almost considered making pre-packed hospital bags to sell on ebay because I wanted to be able to buy everything in one hit but it worked out that you'd have to sell a heap of them to make it worthwhile.

    Great business idea. Maybe you should do that and start selling them on here lol

    The jury is still out as to whether perineal massage actually prevents tearing. My sister used the "Epinoh", which is a balloon-device used to stretch the perineum; she tore anyway. Her OBGYN did warn her that it may not work. There is no harm in trying though!
    I wanted to go down the semi-elective episiotomy route with Oscar, as I knew he was going to be big...and I would have torn without it. My OBGYN then sutured the episiotomy incision, and it healed beautifully. A cut perineum heals "more neatly" than a torn one.

    Anyway, that's just my 2 cents! Good luck whatever you decide.

    I had an episiotomy with Max, so about 2 weeks ago now. It was painful the first week, but some pain killers took care of most of that. Now I feel pretty good! I had to have one because with premmie babies the drs don't want to put much pressure on their heads, makes sense.

    J- glad to have you back...

    Max is still in special care, but he only has one tube now, for feeding, so makes it much easier to hold him! We are trying to get him on sucking feeds now. He is soooo cute!

    I'm finding it a little hard to not be pregnant anymore. We both weren't ready! I didn't have any warm up time, if you know what I mean. He should still be in my tummy, i would only be 34 weeks today.

    Maybe I need some reminders that being pregnant isn't the most comfortable thing around...Eko, you're the furtherest along, remind me!
