Meltdown at gone midnight

I am having a major "Oh my god, I'm having a baby in a week" wibble - anyone got any calming tips? I should be excited not worried, right?

Tomorrow is my last day in work, which is good, but which is also making me realise that my life is just about to change, big time.

But on the upside, mr.ncot has just made me a hot chocolate, so I should probably drink this, chew on some rennie tablets and go to bed, attempting to go to sleep! Night all....

Oh petal, hope you're feeling better by the time you read this. (((hugs)))

I think anyone in their right mind would be a bit worried about it all! I'm a bit surprised they've had you working right up till now, you must be exhausted, which can't help (if it was by choice, then fair enough but you still must be exhausted). Try to have some lovely rests, read a big chunky book you've been saving, have more hot chocolates...

Please report back in later when you can/ feel like it to let us know how you're doing.

I think it would be more strange not to be nervous at this point...

Sending good thoughts your way!

It must be more solid with an actual D Day. I'm trying to to remember back to my 39th week, but all I can recall is feeling uncomfortable & wanting the baby to come out RIGHT NOW *G*

I totally remember feeling like that! I was totally crapping myself, LOL!

Best thing to do is focus on anything that might help you in the weeks following the birth.

Have you got all the essentials for your hospital stay? You need LOADS of maternity towels. You need big bridget jones pants (so they won't press on your scar). You need to leave a clean set of bedding out so Alan can change it and make the bed all fresh for you when you come home. Have you got the baby seat fitted in the car? Have you got very loose jersey pants or skirts to wear for the first month or so? Have you got the freezer full of easy to defrost and reheat meals?

If yes to all the above, all you need to do is have lots of baths, paint your nails for what might be the last time in 6 months, and revel in the excitement!


Wow, you're going to be a mummy! It's brilliant! :)))

Hope you're feeling better. I was a bit nervous to say the least ... I seem to remember having a conversation with N where I confessed that I didn't think I was cut out to be a parent. Too late by then, I was about 39 weeks ... :D

It'll be fine. You'll be fine. Relax, and enjoy!

I can't believe the time has come round so quickly. I was planning to send you some tips I was given by a friend for the hospital and afterwards, but I guess its a bit late now. Let me know if you are still interested.

Time is going so quickly that I'm organising going back to work already. Beth is 9 months today so I've still got 3 months though.

Hope everything goes smoothly.

Tips are always good
All tips and tricks gratefully received. Go into hospital for a planned c-section on Friday. Baby is breech and has no room to turn :-)

Just popped in to catch up...
I suggest watching a goofy movie (have you seen "Waitress?" It's a fun pregnancy movie.) And soaking your feet in hot water. Convince mr.ncot to rub them for you. Remember that millions/billions of women have done this before and those of us who have done it recently are happy to provide emotional support.

I don't honestly remember what I did. I just enjoyed the weather, kept busy at work, read a couple fast and fun books.

P.S. Read about the c-section. It's a bummer, especially when you were hoping for something very different. But I can tell it is a relief to know it is truly needed, and that your little one will be coming into the world in the best way for him/her. And in the end, it doesn't matter how baby arrives...it's that baby gets here safely.
