Thanks @Nezz79. I have an RDO next Friday so am doing it then. Should use my RDO for RNR & take sick leave for GTT instead ;-)
@sarahf - I feel your pain, sounds like a lot of us are getting into the uncomfortable/injured stage. I'm getting a sore belly/hips/rib cage at night from laying on my sides, I need to invest in a wedge (if I can even fit one more pillow in our bed!) And sorry tmi but the constipation yesterday was the worst ive had all pregnancy, it always been an underlying annoyance as im sure it has been for everyone here, but I had to stop myself from going home from work I was so damn uncomfortable. Benefibre (as recommended by my GP) will be my new friend I think.
@BabyOB - I'm sure 28+2 is fine if they say around 28 weeks, unless you were high risk for any reason.
Hey @BabyOB yea I had mine yesterday GTT and I'm 30 + 1 sure I would have had it soon if I hadn't changed doctors... But got it done anyway... Was hoping to for go it all together but they caught that I hadn't done it 😝 so did it at the Kirwan clinic instead of the hospital though... Less "sick" people.
So a random question... Anyone have a recommendation for how I can stop the itch from insect bites... Mainly miggies/sand flies damn little things come out after the rain and I react worst to them than misquotes... Woke myself up scratching them last night and then of corse makes everything itch.
@Cherrymum2be - have you tried chia seeds? I put a dessert spoonful on my cereal or stirred into a smoothie. I have had no problem with constipation since.
68 days to go. I feel so fat and uncomfortable, can't wait for the pregnancy bit to be over! Bub is all elbows and knees at the moment and it hurts! There is obviously still enough room for him to do rolly polly's - and he twists and turns so much I have been ultra paranoid about cord accidents - highly unlikely I know! Hopefully he will head down soon and stay that way until d day. I hope everyone else is feeling good. Not long to go now for the March mums to be! I am really looking forward to some announcements soon! Are people willing to post bubs stats? Ie: weight, and length etc? x
How exciting @KitiK. We have 76 days as getting induced 9th April. I have an anterior placenta so don't feel so much movement, sadly. I'm finding walking normal a real struggle so have the waddle already. Lol. Can't wait for our 1st round of babies to start. Not long at all
