Hi girls. OB appt today and my BP has risen again (same timing as with my DD). Bub isnt engaged so not worth attempting an induction today. Had a steroid shot and off for more tomorrow plus additional monitoring. Hoping that we can push through to next week but looks like I will be booking in a csec for anytime!!!! Eeekkkk!!!! I am scared/nervous/excited all in one ball

@sydma I found it hard to pack this time! My bag includes:
Nursing singlets and bras
Black cotton pants (I get the cheap ones from kmart so I bin them if needed)
A comfy dress
Few loose tops to put on over nursing singlets when visitors arrive (I felt self conscious last time in just my singlets)
Two pairs of pjs with button tops
Nipple cream/breast pads/hydralite breast discs (amazing!!!!)
Usual toiletries including some nice smelly wash to make me feel a bit special

@HopefulK and @SugarBerry
I had alot more trouble finishing up in the role I had with DD (upper management). I was doing crazy long hours to get done! After the first few days it all disappeared though. Make sure you have a pamper session - facial or pedi - in that first few days to help with the relax!!!!

Hiring of my replacement hasn't happened, so now I've just got to shrug and move on.
My company is up for sale, depending on what happens I might get made redundant or not have a suitable job to come back to.
No real point in stressing now though!

I have now been booked for C Sect as baby is still breech, 12 days to go
@dancingbutterfly thanks for your hospital bag list! Its my first time so its great to know what to need especially for a C Sect.
I have a loose fitting/mat dress from target I was going to take but it has a high neck so would be no good for feeding. Has anyone found any more suitable dresses from anywhere? About the granny undies, I've had people tell me to get these, however I have no idea what sort to get. Do you actually mean the really high waisted granny undies? They look so flimsy like they wouldn't hold a giant mat pad anyway?
Again any help would be appreciated!! And one more thing, I want to make sure I have enough supplies for bub, I am going to buy a thermometer today & baby panadol, I have nappy/rash cream, I thought I might buy a few sachets of formula just in case. Can anyone recommend anything else I need? You know just in case things go wrong in the middle of the night and there's no shops open? Thank you
Hope everyone is doing well xx

yep total big massive black undies. I got mine from best n less and kmart. The kmart ones are more comfy imo.

Baby supply wise.... I would recommend:
Thermometer - an ear or forehead one
Nappy rash cream - I love moogoo bum cream or sudocream
Baby wash - Again moo goo bubbly wash is lovely
Baby panadol is good to have but its quite a few months before you can use from memory
Eukyrub is great (similar to vicks but all natural) & when bub is tiny you pop it on the outside of their singlet rather than on their skin.
Formula sachets can be a good idea, I wouldnt go a tin unless you def want to bottle feed. You can always grab one easily if need be.
For you I would add to your bag lanoslin nipple cream, hydralite breast discs (pop them in the fridge at hospy and home for amazing relief for sore nipples) and breast pads.

Have some yummy snacks for yourself when you get home. Things that are easy to grab and eat while you are feeding. Bars, juice boxes, chips, mini chocs. I was STARVING for the first few weeks especially as my milk cane in!
