Grandchild 3 !!! Almost !

23 Jun 2008 1:48PM   Views : 378 Unique : 290

Today Susie and I went to the hospital for another check up as she is now nine days late!
She bounced in and I sat in horror in the Accident and Emergency room ..apparantly that is where all the midwives hang out, but I wasn't impressed as there were all sorts of injuries laid out around me with sick bowls etc so I decided to wait in the foyer!
Half an hour later Susie bounced out again..she really does look as though she is bouncing.Smile The midwife could actually feel the babies head and she is 2cm dilated already...sorry , probably too much information for any men who stray this way!
She was given a sweep..they didn't do that in my day! Told to drink a glass of wine and sniff some Clarysage which we then went and bought. She is going to be induced on Saturday if nothing has happened by then but the midwife was amazed that she wasn't in labour already.
So..only a few days to go now and we are all so excited, especially as she doesn't know whether it is a girl or a boy !
This afternoon she has gone swimming....and I am sitting by my mobile ! Smile

So unnerving that waiting isn't it Di! Hope she gets back from the pool first, before the baby! Daughter-in-law had our grandson in the living room in front of the wood burning stove. Some notes about Bovingdon on my blog, in reply to yours.

Good luck.

Your daughter seems to be taking everything in her stride...........going swimming no less!!!
With Rachel I felt I was in labour, so went into hospital. A 12 year old doctor looked down his nose at me and said "Are you sure you're in labour?" He then turned and smirked at the midwife "She'll be hours yet!!!"...............Rachel arrived less then 2 hours later - he'd gone home!!!!

Now I really am worried Karen Smile
Still nothing on my mobile so I should think she will be home by now ! Another day gone. At least we know that the baby will be born by Sunday ! Smile

Oh now we are going to get some stories Di!!!!
Well in my day I had a sweep!!
Didn't do any good mind you. I was told that it was all to do with being the third baby. don't know why but they are supposed to be the ones that play up getting started.
So to prove me wrong this is probably not the third baby!!

No it is her first baby Helen. I think that is why we are so excited..also she has had two miscarriages so we have been quite concerned about her, she has polycystic ovaries which leads to problems in pregnancy!
Not long to wait now though thank goodness. Smile

Hello Grandma Smile I bet you are all glad it is over ? and a new chapter in her life starts . What a big babt for a tiny girl . Yes make her rest .

As for you toung lady . See you have something in your tummy before you go to bed a small sandwich or a bowl of cereal and then a drink of warm milk . That seems to settle me and these days I sleep at least 7 hours which is wonderful . Clean bed linen , the perfume of Lavender oil and an open window also helps . xxx
