Lovely bump shot MCB and happy birthday! We are off to the beach on a holiday when I'm 32 weeks, looking fwd to getting some beachy bump shots!
Happy birthday MCB!!! Great pic. Glad you enjoyed your day.
Channy - I've had the injection twice - I didn't notice it. One time placenta came out well and the other time it was partially retained (they also managed to drop it on the ground that time too!). I don't know what the research says about this. But I've gone onto have retained placenta without the injection too when we lost a bub at 19 weeks. I think I've been more focused on my babies as they've come out. Can't say I thought about the injection too much though.
Knowing that our next labour should be shorter, I'm also hoping for no drugs - it's always a let's see how it goes thing. Good to have it sorted what your ideal birth would be, but then be prepared to make decisions on the other things if you have to, ie. think about what would be your drug of choice if needed prior, rather than having to make a rushed decision in there if things change. I found that both the gas and remi fentynol both make me stop breathing, so I can't have them - I haven't heard of anyone else having this problem though.
Hopefully you all will have wonderful labours within a normal length of time and won't have to worry about pain meds or complications.
MCB- happy birthday! Enjoy your day
My birth didn't turn out according to my preferences, but it was a positive experience, and relatively short once my waters were broken.
MCB you look stunning. Happy birthday lovely xx
Ive not been around much lately, Ive been really sick and then went to see my sis and new baby nephew in QLD, so had no time to post at all.
I have been reading along though.
Bond, so glad bub is doing well, and I admire your strength sticking you your plan. Hopefully tonight's tightening is something!
MCB happy birthday, It sounds like you had a lovely day. you look stunning.
