almost there now!
36 weeks and 2 days today, still hanging in here. just thought id have a little write because its all getting a bit tedius and boring now.
fed up of just about everything from heartburn to my little girl pushing her head into my cervix as had as she can. worse than that i was in hospital with full contractions stably at 7 mins apart and they sent me home and gave me dyhydrocodine which after some research and friends telling me of their experience actually stops contractions and can cause breathing problems at birth. so I stopped taking them. funnily enough i'm now back to strong braxton hicks.
I absolutely love pregnancy but before I got pregnant I underestimated the moans of pregnant women now I fully sympathise. (especially with lack of sleep towards the end)
i have done as much research as i can about breast feeding too, as a teenager myself i don't know many people who have breast fed but i am 100% going for it. breast is best. which is great because my mum is due just after me and is going to try breastfeeding for the first time so we can discuss and compare.
mine and little girls hospital bags are packed and ready now!! still not written that birthing plan though keeps slipping my mind. all bottles and breast pump all sterilised and her moses basket and cot are both all ready for her.
fingers crossed she will come a bit early as i can no longer walk without being in agony,cant even turn over in bed without hurting. constantly sleepy and just this week ive felt run down and poorly.
any birth stories and advise on natural methods of induction?
i am tempted to ask my midwife about a early sweep due to the constant pain im in. any sucess with these?
