Yep still with bump but there has been some activity overnight, hence such an early morning post. I've had no sleep as every 20 minutes (since that excellent Ricky Gervais Simpson's episode) i get pains and I wake up! Thankfully there was a Green Wing repeat on about 4am to keep me happy for an hour.
Ouch!! Not getting my hopes up though, lots of people have told me these 3rd babies can trick you with lots of false labours so we will see!
I came across his news story about breastfeeding and weight charts yesterday although for me this is nothing new, I've only known this for a 3/4 years! Thank goodness it's made the news though, really bothers me how many mums have given up or stressed about feeding because their babies "don't weigh enough". Not that I believe in weighing babies much anyway, you can tell if they are healthy and thriving, if you have concerns then that's the time to weight them. As with everything baby related, I say you watch the baby not the clock/calendar/schedule/scales..

Exciting stuff! Sending labour vibes you way! Must admit I was disapointed by the Simpson's episode though :(

Good luck, Tracy. Hope things are moving along for you.

Yep at the not weighing babies! My second son and my daughter were rarely weighed. I'm so pleased there finally seems to be some enlightenment about those weight charts...
