    So induction is now on the table. Midwife did say that if Bub is growing the right size, there is no reason to induce. However, it sounds like OB wants the baby out earlier to be on the safe side. 38w....so not long to go now and am a bit freaking out.

    Mine is in a week and I'm starting to freak out too!! I'm not sure why but i think it has something to do with how our little family dynamic is going to change, the actual thought of possibly giving birth vaginally (Because I'm trying for a vbac my induction process will be different to last time ... i hope it works. While I've prepared myself for a csection i really don't want one again. )
    Good luck, lets hope our babies get here safe and sound!!

    Thanks!! Pretty over it right now but know i will kick myself for wishing it was over! Will miss some aspects of pregnancy - my fav being feeling movements.
    But in the last week or so i have immense pain in my pelvic bones when i walk, stand up or shift positions in bed. I've got full waddle going on and feel huge!! I'm super moody from being tired cos i can't sleep properly at night. I don't remember feeling this way last time, must be because everything is looser this time maybe? Hoping labour and birth goes my way this time!!
    Only 5 more sleeps til i go to hospital, eek!! Still have so much cleaning to do but have no motivation! Lol!
    Only in my second week of maternity leave, left things too late thinking I'd have 4 weeks or so.
    Main things are done though. Bubs clothes are all washed, bassinet ready, ready for bottle feeding if breastfeeding doesn't work again (was not ready at all last time!!). Hospital bag is packed and ready. Just need to put car seat in and we're all set.
    Am i forgetting anything? 😞

    You should have more experience than me! First time mom here. Ya, I'm fine with the induction. I can't imagine to hang on for another 5w. It is getting very uncomfortable and the diet is making me miserable. Yes, I'll miss the movement. Bub isn't too gentle sometime, though. I thought i would have two weeks off on the maternity leave but it looks like i'll be working all the way through the induction date! FX that bub doesn't want to come even earlier than that. I'm not ready. I haven't even packed the hospital bag and clean enough for the house. I think you have pretty much everything.

    I'm overthinking everything, it's what i do. Last time i seriously under packed!! Felt like such a fool! Not enough nappies or wipes for starters. Poor hubby had a list of stuff to get.
    Omg yes the uncomfortableness!! If i had to go an extra 2 weeks i may have gone crazy!! Even these 5 days to go are going slow.

    My mum arrives thursday and we will be spreading my dad's ashes and having our goodbyes on saturday. I haven't been dealing with his death really (2 and a bit weeks ago) I've been distracted with my toddler and the impending arrival of #2, plus I'm scared to let myself feel the full extent of my grief, but i think saturday will break me. Wish he could be here to meet his second grandson but at the same time I'm glad he's finally out of pain. Still, wish i could have seen him one last time. We were on our way up to where they live when he passed away. It still doesn't feel real.
    Feel guilty for being happy and excited for bub to arrive. silly i know. Just such a hard time. I know he is with me though.

    I am sorry for your loss. It is so difficult to get over the grief. I was grieving for a year for my losses. It is difficult that bub will be arriving at the same time. Hugs. Xx

    Thanks lovely. It's been tough, but i try to look at the positives. He held on for as long as he could. To make things worse though, my mum got the death certificate the other day which says he was full of cancer - my mum and dad were never informed of how bad it was and how much it had spread. They just kept pushing him to have radiation that really wasn't doing much but causing him more pain. So it makes my heart hurt to know he was suffering longer than he should have. But as i said, positive thoughts - he is free from the pain now.
