That sounds really sensible, Ronale. I've been thinking through emergency c-section scenarios but haven't got as far as special situations. Thanks for raising it! :)

I've just been looking back at previous threads of mine to try to work out when I got heartburn last time - turns out it was way back in the second trimester, so I've made it to 34 weeks without this time around yay! And I noticed I had a mini freak out about the amount of time I had left at the same point last time - 5 weeks to go, so it would seem I'm processing things at around the same rate :lol:
Really hoping nat and jen have babies soon! You both sound fairly ready!
Fellare is looking good from her posts on fb, hopefully things are travelling well with the pregnancy also.

Hope your heartburn disappears soon! Does the amount of time you have left seem too much or too little? How are you going? :)

Yes, doing very well. Love being pregnant. Anything between 5-10 weeks to go. Im happy either way. Found a park i can stay so feeling a bit more settled. If it wasnt for all the appointments id still be moving, though.

had heartburn for over a month now. Its nasty. Im over that bit but it does give me a chance to practise labour skills.

I'm not sure it's not enough or too much time, just a realisation point - 5 weeks to go. Seems a bit surreal sometimes that there will actually be another person here soon!
Everything seems to be progressing in a boringly normal fashion. Next ob appointment is tomorrow so will have confirmation then. I will be surprised if there are any issues though!

So on top of the heartburn im now naureous. Cant eat a thing other than junk food. Cant sit comfy either. Just squat, which is really tiring. 3rd trimester is hard work!

Pregnancy brain is hitting hard today. Drove to the wrong town. An hour out. Then booked a cabin and looked in the fridge for tea bags. Drove the wrong way so many times.

Im tired from the walk yesterday (what made me think 9km walk was easy). I know it will get worst too when properly sleepdeprived.

pmsl.

Looks like im next. Eep, time has flown. Had photos taken today! Thanks, mummykrissy. Feeling a lot better tonight. After loads of bh last week, things have settled again. Cervix is closed again, phew. Im now looking forward to settle a bit and relax my way through the last bits on the list. None of them are urgent, i feel. Last move Is this weekend. Im still amazingly comfortable! Im looking forward to sorting out the clothes and things i got. I did that 4m ago and have largely forgotton. It will be nice to have a pile of blankets to play with.

How are you today, fellare? I'm hoping your baby decides to stay snug and warm inside for a few days; it's pretty cold in SE Australia at the moment!

I know. Though the cold doesnt bother me, its the random rain and wind that is annoying. Ive set up my birth space a few times now but the wind keeps undoing it and the tent is a constant mess. Other than the heartburn and inability to sleep, im fine. Bit bored, mostly just sitting around knitting. Wanting to hide from the world and all the crazy. Got to still get the car seat installed :oops:
