Keep meaning to update here! DD2 arrived in the very early hours on Halloween. Water birth and all to plan (ie complete opposite of DD1's arrival!)

We are completely besotted with our littlest girl even if she is trying to rip my nipples off at every opportunity!

Congrats to everyone who had their baby already!

My maternity leave started this week, and I'm really enjoying peace and quiet... No early mornings, no commute! smile

Baby not engaged yet but at my 36 week appointment midwife said the head is just above pelvic bones, ready to go in. Don't think s/he moved any more down yet though... We'll see what she says this week (seeing her on Friday).

12 days left till EDD!

GreenGiant3 Wed 06-Nov-13 18:37:25

Wibblypiglikesbananas Wed 06-Nov-13 19:29:42

Green - baby will be here soon! My friend was booked in for an induction on Monday and went into about naturally on Sunday - it was like her body knew so fingers crossed for you!

GreenGiant3 Tue 12-Nov-13 13:06:44

Wibbly I'm still here! Baby is showing no real signs of coming! have mild period pains but I've been having these on and off for days so not expecting much... Induction tomorrow!!

I can't seem to post on our FB group page, so this is to announce that DD2 arrived today (40+6) at 9lb 2oz (despite bump measuring small and me being very petite in stature!). Contractions started at 8am and really ramped up at 2pm so we headed into hospital (45 mins away but DH did it in 30!) my waters broke in the car and I had the urge to push on arrival. DD2 was born 19 mins later. No name as yet.
Ps I'm Joanna Gale on FB

Monique2013 Tue 12-Nov-13 23:51:12
