@MGC Bertie - good luck tonight / tomorrow!! It's my due date as well, so a lovely day for bubs to be born. 😄
Suspect I'll be waiting until a bit later in the week.
Good luck to you too ladydee!
Hey @bbhope my diabetes doc gave me my Accuchek Performa free as well, seems like that’s the model we get as a freebie. Like @MGC Bertie said, it could be something dodgy out there LOL. As I mentioned, I test 2 hours after lunch & dinner, but that’s 2 hours from when I finish eating, not when I first started! I’m probably doing it wrong but since I’ve been doing it this way since June I better stick with it. So your diabetic educator wants you to test 1 hour after meal. I suppose you could test again at the 2nd hour but that would be annoying I suppose, not to mention you’d go through the test strips much quicker. Maybe ask her why she prefers 1 hour testing as opposed to 2?
@MGC Bertie – OMG, your waters broke? Best of luck with everything, can’t wait to hear about the arrival of your little girl.
@lileitak – wow, you’re so close, any day now! So exciting
@Beeanksta – such wonderful news on the birth of Ashwin, congratulations. Hope he can get out of special care nursery soon
@Ladydee – best wishes on the safe arrival of your little bub. Happy Monday xxx
AFM – I start parenting classes tomorrow! I know I have a DS already but I feel like a new mum, I’ve forgotten everything!
My goodness its all action on here today!
@McG Bertie can't wait to hear your good news, hope your birth experience is what you hoped for.
@Ladydee you're a mummy by now, looking forward to photos. Hope your c-section went well, I'm surprised how much better my recovery has been than expected. So excited for you
@lilietak any news yet? Did your little man suddenly decide to make an appearance today? What plan did you Ob come up with? I hope you get to meet your little man soon.
Hope everyone else is doing well.
AFM - bub is nearly 2 weeks old and doing pretty well. He is adorable. The last two days though he has decided its fun to be awake from 9am-to about 2-3pm, just will not sleep. He is mostly quiet and settled, and will lie in his bassinet just chilling only stirring for a feed every few hours. Any awesome settling ideas would be most welcome. We have our next health nurse visit on Wednesday so will chat to her about it.
@Nicky1977 - baby brain has got the best of me - I can't remember if I congratulated you already! But if not, BIG congrats on the arrival of Matthew! How are you & your lil man doing? ☺️ xx
@Beeanksta - congrats hun! I know it's tough not being able to have your bub with you. But absence truly does make the heart grow even fonder. Hope he will be back home with you soon xx
@lileitak & @Ladydee - I can't believe it's your due dates already?! How exciting!! Wishing you both all the very best for the coming few days! xx
@MGC Bertie - thinking of you hun & looking forward to hearing your news! xx
Nothing yet, but all went well at my OB appt today. In addition to monitoring she did an exam and a sneaky "stretch & sweep". Apparently my cervix is ready, and she hopes I go into spontaneous labour this week.
But because bubs growth has levelled off and my fluids are low I'm getting booked in for induction Saturday morning if nothing happens.
Very happy to have an end date. 😀
@lileitak - you are on the homestretch! Quick, make the most of sleep ins and just having a life in general! lol Nah, you are about to embark on a beautiful adventure hun; hope your last pregnancy week is a great one xx
I'm trying to cram in as much as I can before he's here. Thinking a nice massage and manicure tomorrow would be nice. 😀
