Thank you ladies so much for the raspberry leaf tea feedback. It sounds like it would be worth a try at least – and if it DOES turn out to shorten the pushing stage and dramatically shorten the bleeding then that would be AWESOME but if not….well what else have I got to do these days? Sitting around drinking tea is what I should be doing these days. Nesting has returned with a vengeance however and I often find myself battling low energy to do crazy things that heavily pregnant women clearly shouldn’t do.

Want a fright? Here’s the bump yesterday at 33w5d. Not hard to see why I’ve been having pelvic pain with that load I’m carrying! I’m hoping that tshirt will last the next 6 weeks but now I see it’s under a bit of strain! She’s hanging down looooow!


Fingers crossed Dave will take me fabric shopping this weekend. I intend to spend Christmas sewing! Sitting! Drinking bad tasting tea! NOT mowing the lawn in 28 degree (83F) heat while large and sore (told you nesting is trying to kill me)! Have a great Christmas!

  1. Drinking tea, sewing up a storm and having a wee one wriggling around in your belly – sounds like a pretty great Christmas to me. Enjoy! (And DEFINITELY step away from the lawn mower, jeepers! Way too hot for those sorts of shenanigans!)

    Merry Christmas to you and Dave

    Maybe check out Arnica tablets to reduce bruising too? You have to take them for a while before you go into labour. Would have been good to know BEFORE the Caesarean…

    You look fabulously ripe! I am not convinced raspberry leaf tea does anything. But in that final stage of pg then doing anything which feels like it will help things along is probably helpful!Have a wonderful Christmas and take it easy while you can xx

    i wish you and dave and your wee little baby girl in your belly an amazing christmas!
