    Default Anyone else counting down the days?

    I have 15 days to go till EDD. I'm so very excited at the idea of birthing again.
    Filled with joy and excitement in anticipation

    Obviously can't wait to meet my baby too.

    And at the the same time, there's a lingering sadness that this might be my last time.

    Anyway, anyone else in the last few days of pregnancy?

    I have 3 weeks until my scheduled c section, I'm terrified!

    It's definitely my last time and I'm really sad I won't get to experience another vaginal birth, I'm filled with anxiety over the whole procedure and keep imagining the worst (anxiety truly sucks).

    But I can't wait to meet my baby and introduce him/her to its siblings

    Yep. 1 and a bit weeks to go. I'm so over effing pre-labour. I've been awake all night with contractions and as soon as I get up they fizzle out. Grrr!

    Ooh that's exciting I'm a bit jealous you are getting contractions. It's your second though right? Not long now!

    Yep second one. The contractions suck a bit though, cos they just make you exhausted for the big event. Is this your first ScubaGal? You must be so excited! I've been thinking about you and ExcuseMyFrench...I knew we were all fairly close together. Best of luck to everyone waiting...really hope everyone has a wonderful birth and is soon enjoying newborn cuddles. Squee!

    I'm due in 2 weeks. It's my second too and I don't think I'll go early.
    I am too comfortable and no signs of pre labour.

    Default Anyone else counting down the days?

    @Silver flute how is baby going? do you think it's still breech?
    Have you had a chance to look at the spinning babies website?
    Fingers crossed he does turn
    How was your first birth?

    @ScubaGal 3 days to go...!!!! Eeek!
    How exciting
    Are you going public or private? I'm having a stretch and sweep as soon as I clock 40 weeks.

    @Crumpet87 I'm in Melbourne. Is this your first?
    @AngelicOne is this your first csec? I understand how scary that could be.
    I hear that scheduled CS can be a really good experience though
    Will you have help at home after the birth?
