update

Still nothing very much happening - contractions still intermittent (about twenty minutes apart) but getting a bit stronger and more painful. I'm VERY sleepy and thirsty and have just been for a walk up the garden steps to say hello to the chickens to try to move things along. B is going to massage my feet in a minute with lavender essential oil - apparently around the ankle is now the place to concentrate on rather than avoid.

Kate and Vic are here helping us to pack (well, packing for us, if the truth be told), whilst I concentrate on this and B tries to sort out the two huge jobs he has on next week so that he doesn't need to go on them himself.

Dad apparently has yet another infection. But they don't want to prescribe antibiotics until they know exactly what the best thing to give him is. So he's confused and sleepy again.

Surprisingly, I am much calmer today. Aren't hormones great?

  1. Fingers crossed. Everyone's different, but it sounds like you're going down the long slow route LL had for each of ours. Tiring, but not unpleasent. Could be days yet!

  3. This is really exciting. I hope you love giving birth as much as I did and have a wonderful exhilarating birth story to tell us really soon.

    Maybe the problems with the solicitor are for the best - if baby wants to come in the next few hours, moving house on Saturday is out of the question anyway.

    Fingers crossed and prayers being said for you. I'm so excited!

  5. This is the bit I hated the most - SO tired of being pregnent and SO ready to meet this new person, having played host for so long to s stranger. I hope your labour goes well, and it is everything you have hoped for. Stay beautiful :)

  6. Oh goodness, I feel quite emotional. I'll be thinking of you, Ally dearest.

    If you could hang on until Monday, your baby would share my birthday :-)

    All the best
