Hope everyone is going well!!

Yesterday in another August DIG I'm involved in a member who lost her baby a couple of months ago just found out she is pregnant again. We are all so happy for her!

I've started to get some serious kicking & poking from my Bub. Hubby thinks he is going to come out with ADD. So far even the 20w scan picked up some of his physical traits (toes) & he is super active. Lucky to sit still for 10s!

I'm a first timer & 24w on Wednesday. I have seen a few posts on the internet about colostrum & milk, so I was a little curious & gave my boobs a squeeze this morning. I was actually surprised when a clear sticky liquid came out!! Haha.. looks like they are working away there.

Hi all, I joined the group months ago but have avoided social media since then. My bub is due 3rd August, a boy, and all is well with him and me.

I was a member of the EB March DIG back in 2010. Had a lot of fun with those ladies :) It's a shame FB has monopolised these groups. I'm not on FB.

Anyway, if anyone's still keen to chat, I'm happy to be part of it. I see there's a new thread opened for August baby arrivals, so I may take part in that too :)

I'm not on FB either. Privacy reasons. I do like Instagram for sharing pics with my family/friends, but have a private account with only a few followers.

Baby boy is due on 27Aug. I'm having a growth scan tomorrow and need to decide if I'm going to try for a VBAC or repeat section.

Best wishes for your scan tomorrow, and for your ensuing decision :)

As I'm almost 38w, the midwife suggested I make efforts to naturally induce my bub, to avoid the need for a medical induction if I go past 40w. Reason being, I'm turning 45yo this year, and although my first pregnancy and birth was textbook (at 37yo), as is this one (natural conception etc), I don't think they have the same trust in my body as I do. lol. I'm not keen on even bringing on labour with EPO or herbs, etc. anyway.

It does annoy me slightly, but also steels my resolve to continue with my decision to not be induced, so they'll just be monitoring bub's well being via CTG each week from now. OB appointment at 40+5 if bub hasn't arrived, but I think he'll be here by then.
