Monday is the big day

Counting days until Monday for when my planned section will take place. Really tired and fed up by now, as it's been several weeks that my body is itching all over. I had so many blood tests, as the MFs are worried I might have a liver dysfunction. The medication makes me utterly drowsy, so I don't feel like taking the prescribed amount, I am also worried about the effect it has on my baby, who also hardly moves even if I take 2 pills out of 4, and if I take one, it has no effect whatsoever and the itching just drives me crazy. I stay in bed and keep watching at the clock.
Went to see the anaesthetist (sp?) this week, and hope I won't go in labour before Monday as the hospital is pretty far. I already booked a taxi and packed the bags.
Also inquired about the price of the private room, hoping that my husband would be able to stay with me overnight, but they charge an insane amount of money, £478 per night, and if I have to stay 4 nights in the hospital, it's just too expensive. So, general ward it is, with other Mums and wailing babies and hords of visitors and passers by, with me on a morphine drip for 24 hours and a pee bag attached. Anyway, anything is better than this constant itching.

Just wanted to say Good luck to Trishkins and anyone else who is having a baby this month!


Good luck Sassolino & sure all will go to plan. xx

Trish - good luck to you too, FX you don't go over. xx

Oh yay, hugest hugs and good luck for a speedy (and gentle) recovery. Let us know how you and bubs are doing when you get chance.

Will be thinking of you on Monday and sending lots of vibes.x


Good luck Sassolino and thanks for thinking of me.

I'm due on Sunday but I'm going to end up overdue, I just know it. I am fed up now too. I spend most of my time crying for no reason at all! What on earth have I got to cry about????

Will be thinking about you on Monday. Let us know as soon as you can that both you and bubs are OK.



Good luck sassolino, I hope you recuperate quickly and all goes as smoothly as possible xxx


All the best for Monday >Big smile

Best of luck for Monday!

Just a thought, but I had DD by CS and, at the hospital I was in, all ladies who had had a CS got their own room. May be the case at your hospital too ..........
