    PMSL you dag. Yeah well I didn't want to poo in front of anyone either and I had that and a whole lot more happen, I think I'm more embarassed now then I was at the time though.

    Try and get some sleep hun, I would ring OB in the morning for sure, I'm betting eh will want to put you on a monitor and check for contractions. Hoping then for you that nothing happens overnight. I was praying SIL wouldn't go lastnight with the storm. Didn't want to go out in that.

    And yup, I'm an awesome Aunty. I can't wait for this little man to be hear. He already jiggles around when he hears my voice. He must love me already

    Hi B456
    Sorry I misunderstood I thought that you wanted to go into labour
    Yes it is common for baby to move when in labour
    And I still think that you are in early labour

    Oh one last thing .. I also prefer you girls to do a poo before rather than during

    B456 - I have ben having the same. Last night at 10.30pm, the contractions started and were about 3 mins apart. After about 4 hours, they continued getting stronger and stronger, so we headed to the hospital and then they stopped! After an internal, they found I was only 2cms dialated and she could feel the bag of waters. The midwife was lovely and told us to get some sleep, which we did, but the contractions didn't start up again until about 6.30am and they weren't nearly as intense. The Ob wanted a trace, and the baby is perfectly happy in there, so we decided to go home.

    Once home, I was able to get another hour or so sleep, but poor DH was too wired to get any sleep at all. The Ob thinks it will probably be within the next 48hours, so now we are just waiting. Have only had mild cramping throughout the day, but nothing else. I had a show last Monday, so I am hopeful that things will happen tonight, but how long can this pre labour stuff go on?????

    LOL, Brooke, got to be looking gorgeous for those first pics after bubs birth hey. It is amazing the pick me up a haircut will give you. Enjoy it hun.

    I told SIL she can go over the weekend. I am supposed to working out at the Blacktown show, what a perfect excuse not to have to hey. Am taking her to the accupuncturist on Friday, so hopefully that gets things moving along for her. Already they are whinging for the induction.

    Yeah, I think Teh's pretty cute too, Shame she's such a cow most of the time, a cute cow though. Her hair often gets her attention too. She's my little Nicole (kidman) hope she makes the money like her

    Thanks for your answers and advice everyone. What was happening was early labour contractions, and we are now back home with our little girl.

    Hi, am still here too! Nothing through the night, and a few mild sort of crampy pains today. Am feeling a bit sick though, so who knows?????? I hate waiting, I am the most impatient person I know, and I am also a control freak, so not having any kind of control over this is driving me nuts!! DH has put a ban on me talking about "what if" stuff as he is getting sick of me too! He says - just relax and he will come out eventually. Easy for him to say!!!

    I hope for your sakes Rachel and B4 that things are happening for you soon!

    Ok this is only for the girls who are not going to have vaginal bypass surgery.

    Are you all taking and inserting EPO?

    It is known to help bring on labour

    For the girls who are going to have vaginal bypass surgery.

    Keep away from the EPO

    PMSL Alan @ vaginal bypass surgery. I like that one.

    I have had SIL pouring the stuff into for the last couple of weeks. She will be 40 weeks on Sunday and he still isn't engaged and there are no other signs whatsoever. How do we get this little man moving? They want to book her in for induction next week.
