    Panda-through work I have learnt that it can be difficult to establish BF but generally only if there is a lot of blood loss. It is suggested that this can happen because the body works on one thing at a time and it's priority is self preservation not milk production. The same thing can happen if there is a PPH after natural birth. Of course, it is always going to be different for everyone but not a general rule just for CS.

    Bedlover-I really want to go into spontaneous labour too. I'm not worried how bub is born but I do want to know what it feels like and I also want the excitement of 'holy sh!t, I think I'm in labour' hehe

    Amps-glad you're little family is safe and well.

    Had to change the roll call as it will only allow 16 smilies. My BP has dropped back to normal and my swelling has disappeared, very strange but Ob is still closely monitoring me, just in case. Waiting on the results of my 5L of urine now.

    Also, for those of you with pets. Did/have they started acting strange?? In the early stages if my pregnancy my gentle giant (bull mastiff) became overly affectionate and would just sit with his head in my lap. He's been back to normal for some time but things have changed in the last three days.

    He's sniffing my groin a lot (normal dog behaviour I know) but has also been going to sleep in bubs room at night. This room has always been open but he's never been interested in going in there. At times during the night I find him sitting beside my bed just watching me like he's waiting/wanting something. I get up to let him out to go toilet and have a drink but he doesn't want it. ??... Anyone else

    Hi there ladies, hope you're all well.

    Team panda I've been asked to do a similar thing but I don't have a cs on the cards. My midwife said to express some colostrum for two reasons.
    1) it releases Oxytocin which can bring on contractions
    2) if I end up having an overdue baby, which she's not saying I will have just yet, but they can come out hungry and may need a top up on what I was able to produce. So she's getting me to freeze small syringes and date them.

    If this doesn't work I'm going to have a stretch and sweep on Friday and possibly have an Easter baby!

    But the interesting thing last night after expressing was that I got sooooo many Braxton Hicks and had period like cramps. Could the expressing have brought it on? I don't know? I was so excited to feel something remotely like early labour so can understand why some if you want that feeling of going into labour.
    Anyway, got hardly any sleep, felt like bubs was awake most of the time, kicking about in there. Felt the head push down a bit. And also had a slight bit of groin pain. This morning it's just a dull ache around my abdomen.

    Well I thought I'd share. Not sure if I'm imagining it or whether my body is starting to do something.

    I had that same discussion with one of my girlfriends yesterday about not knowing what labour and vaginal birth would feel like. I would have liked to have felt it too, but I do believe that this is the right thing to do, if she is not turning there is a reason for it. She may just be very comfortable in there or she may have a shortened cord, who knows. just want her out safe now, especially as it's the last week and I still get paranoid about things going wrong.
    Ngaiz our cat has been acting strange the last three days. She just stares at me at times and last week she was going into our bedroom every morning and hiding under the bed then coming out in the evening. Anyway DH has been preparing her for the new arrival by making the lounge room her haven. She has a nice bed in there, a cat plug -in pheromone. The day we get back from hospital we will introduce the baby to the cat and very carefully let her smell the baby. My DH has discussed all this with the vet. She doesn't sleep in our room any longer and we have been making the changes slowly over the last few months.
    Lotsa how exciting, looks like we will start having our next batch of babies in the next week. yes sounds like Braxton hicks being brought on by the expressing, oooh you could go in early too.
    i actually slept through the night, thank goodness, apart from two toilet runs and sore joints. I'm getting a lot of kicks and pokes in my bottom left side now, they hurt. I got woken up by DH this morning, but clearly remember dreaming about my obstetrician who I was fancying in my dream. I think because I'm seeing him so often now I'm getting quite attached. Tell you what, so different from my fertility specialist. Her appointments were very rushed and clinical, ob's are relaxed and warm and lovely.

    Though I'd share something my cousin and I did yesterday, just waiting on edited copies. Please don't quote because I'd like to delete it later. I'm not normally one to strip of But I feel more comfortable in this body than I ever have in my life.

    My pets don't seem to care at all! I'm finding it very interesting that although the mantra of all our learning has been 'almost everyone will produce enough milk' that a high proportion of new mums are having supply issues. Good on you all for persisting for a while to see how things go. I guess they do warn it can take 4-6 weeks for supply to be under control.

    Ngaiz you look fabulous!!

    My 2 dogs were very curious to begin with and occasionally barked at bub grumbling in the first couple of days, but they quickly got used to it.

    We let them sniff her but have been teaching them not to go near her face. Our older dog has taken to laying in front of her bassinet when it's in the lounge, watching the front door - so I think he's going to be Annabel's little guard dog!

    At the moment DH and I are chilling out with miss A on the bed and the puppies are curled up at our feet. They sleep in the laundry overnight, but we let them out fairly early in the morning and they'll snuggle up in our room. This is what we did before bub came along and continuing just with some new "rules" means they seem to have accepted her into the pack and aren't showing any signs of resentment or jealousy

    ArLais thats great to hear how the dogs are settling in with the baby. How lovely that one of them is protective of her. You must taken some pictures of your dogs with bubs.
    Hwaterhouse yes there does seem to be a lot of issues with breast feeding. Best we are well informed as it may happen to us too.
    Im back at the hospital again. Went to the toilet around an hour ago and was bleeding. They dont think i should be worried but im on fetal heart monitor at the moment.
