Could labour be near?

First time mumma here so apologies in advance if I sound ridiculous 😂 Currently 37+6 and I haven’t really had any signs of labour (which isn’t a bad thing I guess haha!) however I’m so incredibly uncomfortable and it’s gradually getting harder every day!

I haven’t experienced any bleeding or cramping. Do you think I might have an infection? I was cleaning the kitchen after my lunch and sm...

Baby movement

Anyone that has been through labour before does baby movements change before labour? My baby has definitely dropped and last few days has been a lot more busy and making much bigger movements than usual - is this a sign he is getting ready to exit?,

Pregnancy doesn’t feel real

Hi so I just found out I’m pregnant on Sunday by using at home tests. I went to the GP on Monday but they didn’t test me there, they basically just gave me my scan, midwife & due dates. Is this normal? I felt I would have had a bit more reassurance if they had tested me there too. My partner and I have been trying...

“Laziness”

Tonight my family called me lazy and said all I’ve been doing is eating and sleeping all day and it bothers them. This is my first pregnancy, I’m doing it alone, my mom offered her home back to me so I can relax and take care of myself since I’m high risk but then when I relax she calls me lazy. I’m sorry I’ve been ...

Bleeding at 13 weeks

I just had my dating ultrasound today, and everything looked good. Few hours after I came home I noticed bright red blood when I wiped, after a few wipes it became brown and stopped. I was light overalls but pretty scary. Wondering if anyone ever experienced bleeding at this stage.

Birth and shoulder dystocia

Just reading about people’s experiences with this. I wanted to give birth naturally and have seen videos of women giving birth and their midwives simply slipping a hand in the side as the baby’s being born and unlocking the baby’s shoulder from being stuck. Is this not what is typically done? I didn’t realise tha...

Movement low down

Does anyone else's baby movements still feel really low down? Every little bit of movement I feel, feels like it's hitting my bladder and I have a sudden urge to pee every time! It's the weirdest feeling .. and I just thought I'd feel him a bit higher up now 🙈 I'm 23 weeks.
