Posted 05 February 2013 - 09:47 AM

Thanks everyone, for your speedy wishes! Im still waiting and getting  more impatient, unfortunately. Lucky my family is visiting, theyre a  very welcome distraction. But I feel kind of bad. Theyve taken 2 weeks  off work to meet our new baby and it looks like theyll hardly get any  time with her before they have to go back.

HOPE6 - know what you  mean about renovating. We also bought an old house, original condition,  so we spent the first 18months-2 years doing renos as well. It was  really nice to be able to have a bunch of friends over and enjoy being  in our nice house. Baby shower (and baby of course!) is good motivation  to get things finished!

Sunshiney - our hospitals policy is very  similar to yours and it freaked me out a bit too. Personally id be glad  to stay in for a few days, get some rest and have things done for me!  Our hospital says their policy is to discharge within 6-24 hours after  birth, with frequent midwife visits to your home. But when we attended  the prenatal training day at the hospital they said that in reality for  most first time Mums its more likely to be at least 24 hours. They want  to make sure you're breastfeeding properly before they let you go, and  the 6-24 hours more often applies to Mums who've done it before. Maybe  yours will turn out more like that too. Thanks for the tip about  accupressure points. I hadnt heard that so Im going to look into it.

ksds  and Dreaming - welcome to our group. Sorry to hear you've both had a  really rough time getting here. I hope the rest of your journey goes  smoothly and this is your sticky bubba. KSDS - good luck with your blood  test today. Let us know how you go, we'll be thinking of you.

emmy-g - doesnt it feel more real when you start putting the nursery together. So fun isnt it?

Jaynen  - what a good time to be made redundant. Seems to fit in perfectly with  your plans anyway. Hihi, you made me laugh... i have a mental image of a  stick figure pregnant lady walking around on sausages! My puffy has  taken over my feet and moved all the way up my legs - boohoo! Hope it  goes away really quickly when our baby comes. Hope yours does too, it just makes everything so much more difficult and uncomfortable. Its getting pretty close  for you now too. How are you feeling?

miss petal - glad your US  went well. Its so amazing seeing them move and wriggle and do normal  baby things like sucking thumbs isnt it? And congratulations on your  little girl! You'll even up the numbers a bit with your little girl - we  always seem to have more baby boys in this group.

Gaia - nice to see you again, thanks for visiting. I cant wait to join you in the other group. Hope you're doing well.

AFM  - reading miss petals post got me excited again thinking about what we  might have. I still think we're having a gril but cant wait to find out  for sure and see what s/he looks like. Hurry up and come out little  bubba!!  Ive been drinking oil each night, and taking walks each day,  but im starting to think that maybe our bubba is continuing a strong  family trait of DH's - a relaxed approach to everything, "I'll do it  later"! Like Jaynen, I keep talking to our baby each time she's moving  around and telling her not to be scared, its ok to come out now and we  really want to meet her.
