    I did with DD, but just realised the other day that I should be doing it again...haven't though ...I feel very unprepared this time, haven't even finished re-reading my birth skills book...

    Did you find it helped? The midwife said to use Vaseline every couple of days but like you I don't want to tamper down there especially when I'm being treated for preterm labour! Lol

    Hoots I wouldn't touch down there if your being treated for preterm labour. Does it matter what happens down there? The most important thing is to keep baby in, any chance of tampering with that is not really worth it IMO.

    Hoots I've been trying to decide if I want to try that, or get my husband to do it for me! Not sure if I can bring myself to do it.....the Epi No sounds like a good device but it's just another expense that I probably can't really afford

    I used olive oil i think. No idea whether it helped...I had a small perennial tear, maybe it would've been huge without the massage ...but maybe it would have been just the same

    perhaps you should check with an OB before you start though, given your particular situation...?

    I keep hearing that there is no major/worthwhile improvement and yet a lot of women swear by it. Is it mind over matter? Luck of genetics? Or does it ACTUALLY work?

    IM so confused wether to do it, the doc actually told me to do it when I was having that speculum thing but it was excruciating so not sure I want the added stress. Might think about it a bit longer, worse case it's going to hurt no matter what!
    First day of forced bed rest (@ 7am) and I'm bored already lol

    Hoots my eldest boy was born at 34+4 and had a couple of little issues when born (not related to his prematurity) and is now a strapping 3.5 year old who towers over other kids his age and is happy and healthy and has no problems. Its a scary thought, but try not to stress too much... Gosh 28wk and measuring 24, she must have been tiny!!!
