So far I've been pretty regular in going to the toilet during this pregnancy, but know the anaesthesia can make you constipated. So have let DH know what he can and can't give me if I'm suffering. Ann sounds like we had similar painful experiences whilst cycling. I don't want to go through that again.
Ngaiz yes I also believe that baby will turn if she is meant to. I did two exercises last night, but not wrapped about doing them as they feel quite uncomfortable. I'll try the acupuncture but then that's it.
October I will go to the library tomorrow and look for Babylove, probably now is as good a time as ever to sit down and read a book. Today I was in baby bunting and a new born was crying in another aisle, as they do, and I felt really emotional. I then had to tell myself to get a grip. I'm wondering if it's all the pregnancy hormones making me so emotional?
Keri good to see you are doing well with the healing after the cs. Congratulations once again.

Octoberbaby I second Robin Barker's Baby Love. It was my bible with DS - such a great buy! There is also a toddler version.
Riss, I also came across Save our Sleep before DS was born and decided to give her routines a go. I wasn't totally by the book as I think it's really important to listen to your baby and use your instinct to know what they need - especially in those early weeks - but I found it really helped me with getting my milk supply up and knowing that DS was getting enough sleep. He self settles really well too.

Glad to hear you are doing well Keri and the pain is manageable. Must be so restricting to not be able to do stuff you normally take for granted. I know at the moment I have to get DH to take out the rubbish cause I can't lift the bin! So annoying.
Awesome that Erin is doing well but sorry to hear you have had a tough time Amps. Thanks for the advice too! Every little bit helps.
AFM I have been pretty regular at the moment so not too worried but I will make sure to get some prune juice when I know when I will be induced. I have my ob appointment this morning so will find out if my BP is getting better. If not I guess I might be getting induced today! My DH is freaking out and so am I a bit. Just trying to go with the flow. Whatever is best for bubs. I packed my hospital bag last night just in case.

I was given Baby Love by Robin Barker and I also recommend it (although I haven't tested it yet!). I've read perhaps three different books and to me it had the best guidance and most flexible and balanced approach. Borrow it if you can but you'll probably end up buying a reference copy if you like it!
All the best today Rtkirk!

Argh! Rtkirk! Good luck!!!
In the subject of books, I would thoroughly recommend Baby Bliss by Jo Ryan. Less full in than save our sleep but still good solid advise. We followed it and it really worked for us. Plus, Jo also runs seminars by phone where you can call in and she will help you with your issues. If you get really stuck they also do home visits, which my friend did with her "difficult" baby and said it was worth every penny!

Good luck today rtkirk.
Still no movement here, though ob said definitely very low down. Love her to bits as she's very low intervention compared to many in her field and really fits with what we want. We won't have any vaginal exams until next week to see whether induction is doable or not.
Having said that, plenty of bms yday and looser than normal, along with a quieter bub hopefully means sooner rather than later it will be here.
On books I did read baby love with my first. Definitely not a fan of save our sleep, her philosophies just don't sit well with me, but would recommend anything by Pinky McKay. The best parenting books I've read though were by far Buddhism for Mothers and the Calm Connected Child.

Good luck rtkirk today!! I like you're attitude of what's best for the baby.
Thanks for the tips on constipation remedies, will check them out. Also will get back on the prunes and apricots.
As got books, our midwife lent us baby love, which we've slowly been getting through. We've also read the dad factor and we're in the middle of no cry sleep solution. Plus we're revising all of our calm birth books. I've looked at pink mckay's website too.
I too am not sure what to expect after the baby is here and would love to be able to equip myself with the skills and confidence to go with the flow. I suppose we're all human and will make mistakes and feel down at some point.
38 weeks today and bubs seems quite content. No signs or symptoms of any movement. I know that baby is very low a was in a good position last week. And blood pressure was good. So just waiting to see.
I'm drinking raspberry leaf tea, I think someone mentioned it. ?? Have no idea if it has any impact, but I'm a fan of herbal tea so it's nice to sip on. Not putting my complete faith in it though.
Also, doing my stretches watch morning and have a Swiss ball that I bounce forward and back on. Sometimes it comfy to just sit on.

Thanks for sharing Amps. I hope you're not in too much pain. I appreciate the tips about preparing. So funny, my friend mentioned it to be just the other day. It's funny how topic on here can just pop up in your everyday life.
Keri keep resting up there. Glad to hear your coping without the pain relief.
