    I love my mum to bits but she just really upset me saying how she thinks the birthing centre is a bad move coz I can't have drugs and they send you home after 24hrs etc

    Hugs Channy. Sometimes parents are just concerned when you decide to do things differently to how they did it

    You're her little girl. She is probably just trying to "protect" you in a way. I found going home was so much more comfortable. If bubs dirtied or puked I could wash things straight away, could talk to people, get formula milk ready quickly (BCS - bad cow syndrome), shower and walk around naked and no one complaining...too much. Bathing bubs was also easier. And I got more one-on-one time with the visiting midwives.

    Also remember to make sure your DH/DP wear enclosed proper shoes as you never know if you will end up in theatre. I'd also pack a few changes of clothes for bubs if staying a few days - like 3 or 4 at least. Some of my kids had no problems after birth but one of them kept doing pukes and needing changing several times a day. Worst case scenario though is that you'd just wrap them in another blanket/wrap.

    Will stop crashing thread...I promise.

    Little Ted- don't worry about crashing the thread! Its nice to have you around. How are you doing atm?

    Re. Hospital bags. I agree with the comments about not using a lot of the stuff packed for labour! By the time I arrived I was ready to push and couldn't use any of it. While I was at home labouring I simply didn't want to! So my advice is pack it in case you need it, but not too much!

    DH packed clothes and snacks for himself.

    I took lots of old undies to throw away after use. My hospital provided pads so I used theirs up first and saved mine for back at home. I preferred to wear nighties rather than pants due to the bleeding. with a nightie I could hitch it up around my hips while in bed, with blanket covering me of course, and sit on the bed pad they put down with just my undies on, to stop the nightie getting stained. in pants they would have been stained much more easily. for me at least! Also if your birth doesn't go to plan and you need a catheter or have a lot of stitches, like me, pants would get in the way and rub in the wrong places! So pack a nightie even if you'd prefer pants just in case.

    Any recommendations for encouraging a breech baby to turn? I've been doing the breech tilt and the fwd leaning inversion and not sitting in a reclined position.

    He has flipped from vertex to breech and back and back again in the last 24 hrs and I want him vertex!!

    Don't want to give him any time being comfy breech.

    I agree about the labour bag. I didn't touch anything that i took, I just wasn't interested. Take anything you think you might want though, something might end up useful.

    Also, I should have packed a dummy for bub, but I didn't. After 2 nights of her screaming all night, the midwife asked if I had one, the next day ident mum out to buy some. She only uses them on rare occasions now, but it was good to have one

    Nawwww sorry MCB

    It's so hard to keep up with all you gorgeous pregnant ladies and I don't want to bust in always posting about me and Vale. I feel bad for not doing personals

    Thank you for asking about us
    Vale is finally 6kg's!! Hoorayyyy! Got rid of her 000 clothes and she is mostly in 00's now. She's so amazing! She's really vocal. Like will have full blown conversations with you for up to 5 mins. Obviously she's not saying words but the sounds are so cool and so expressive! She rolls now and I'm pretty sure I mentioned that she is on solids which she ADORES! Loves her watermelon. She smiles heaps too. like all day everyday. Still doing great on the sleeping with 8pm-6am sleeps, feed then back down until 8:30-9am
    Some updated pics for you all
