Jolly and Joyful January 2012 Mummies!!

So, do you just get a back-up Ob? I've never had a private Ob so I'm not sure how it all works. Sounds like bad timing on their part, but I suppose they need to take holidays at some point..
Have you ever checked your own cervix (like when TTC)? It feels more mushy (lol!) when pregnant, but it's easy enough to find if you know what you're looking for. I can tell how effaced and dialed I am now without anyone else needing to touch me. .
Seems like Indy was on the right track staying up nth a few hours! Can't wait to hear all about it .
I'm still waiting.. had my Blessingway on Sunday which was just divine. Feeling totally blissed out and ready to meet my darling bellybabe now

Oh a blessingway sounds like a beautiful tradition (have to thanks Mr Google LOL). Won't be long till your bellybabe is in your arms
The drive wasn't too bad as it was night time going down so he seemed settled anyway and coming back I drove a bit so it kept me distracted. I am also over sitting and laying more and more. I sit on my ball to try and help bub into correct position. Will find out tomorrow I suppose if it has helped at all.
I never thought to check my own cervix. It used to be regular thing when TTC so I have a fair idea of what it should feel like at different times so will see if I can reach LOL.
Nothing to report here. Except for the constant texts and calls to check if anything has started. Going to be a long few weeks if he goes over

Ooh 'tis a race huh??! Well, I'm not winning... just doing a lot of wincing really!
Actually I think you won! Looking forward to hearing all about him!
Carley- I'm so sorry to hear your Nan passed away. You did well to manage such a big trip though, if only it were under better circumstances. And constant calls and texts checking in sounds like fun to deal with! I hope your little man realises it's much more comfy on the outside and decides to join the world soon!! Don't worry, I'm not feeling a thing either- despite *supposedly* having contractions last week! We must have some stubborn monkeys!
alemona (sorry was about to call you Mrs Timms! ) great to hear from you! So lovely that your Belssingway went wonderfully on Sunday, sounds like a great way to welcome bubs into the world.
Absolutely nothing going on here either. After getting excited last week with the 'contractions', it was a bit of an anti-climax to still be around a week later not feeling any different! But my obs is back from holidays tomorrow, and I've finished getting all my lecturing material ready so I'm taking it as a sign for all the stars to align and bub will be here soon! And if they're not I will be having stern words with them! I am grateful that I've made it this far, and that this time I will have bubs with me instead of in the SCN- it is going to be the weirdest feeling to bring bubs home after 3 days instead of nearly a month! DD is still clingy as ever and I am worried about how she will handle us being away having bubs. I'm sure she'll adjust- DH will only stay with me for the first night and then he'll be home with her so hopefully she won't get too upset. But she is a definite Mummy's girl so I guess we'll just have to take things as they come!
OK Jan babies, time to come and join us Earthside!!

I did a check myself, well with what I could do with my tummy and I am squishy and have a 'neck' cervix so I assume that means non effaced and have a maybe 2cm gap that is fairly normal after my last 2 pregnancies so looks like he won't be coming anytime soon. He isn't engaged either.
So back to taking it easy with maybe a bit of floor scrubbing and walking just to see if it helps at all

Just wanting to announce my 2nd son, Jacob William arrived 11/01/12 at 9.19am 8lb 3oz and 53cm. We are both well, he was delivered by c section so mummy is still sore and tender.
Goodluck January mummies!

Carley- can't be much longer for us huh?! I'm hoping your little man gets a wriggle on and joins you very soon!!
I'm hoping this bubs hurries up too! Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to be this pregnant! After being told I was having contractions a couple of weeks ago, my obs bought me back to earth last week by saying that bubs was so high up they were nowhere near ready for birth and if it were my first child he'd be talking c-sects due to baby being so high up. He has an induction date planned for DD's b'day! No way do I want both my babies born on the same day!! But today at least with my obs' middie, she felt the baby's head straight away on doing an internal and said I was 1.5cm dilated- so she's stretched me to 2cm and said I'm now favourable for an induction (which I apparently wasn't at all last week). I am doing everything I can to ensure that I don't have to have that induction, hoping that something gets moving this week!!

Come on baby starlight! If I am induced it will be on hubbies birthday so seems we have an induction trend of sharing birthdays. Hopefully your internal stirred things up and you will be introducing your little one in no time
Still nothing here. I am sure he is still high as I am awfully uncomfy and breathing is hard. Off to see my old GP on Wednesday so will be asking for an internal to have some sort of idea what is going on. Surely a quick internal and sweep would be better to start with than a full blown induction.... Well I hope so anyway. He has not quitened down and when he stretches I swear he is about to put a foot through my cervix which is painful but doesnt start anything

alemona - how are you going?
I'm the only one left now! Come on bump!
Posted 28 January 2012 - 01:45 PM
Hope you are holding your bub soon.

Watching anxiously for news! C'mon babies!
Just so blessed: Keely Grace, Imogen Elise, Jakobi Jai and my better half Steve
