    Hey ladies

    I feel like the baby is trying to engage - it feels like it's rummaging down below. Ewwwwwwwww!!!!!

    The pains are brief but really sharp. Did anyone else feel when their baby was trying to engage? Did you have sharp pains and did they get any worse as time went on?

    Thanks for all of your replies ladies - it's a wierd feeling isn't it? I can't believe how close we're all getting now, though I'm finding it hard to get my head around the fact that the baby could come in one week (when I'm at term - 37 weeks) or 6 weeks!!! It's just too big a timescale. I want to be prepared, but don't want to feel as if I'm hanging around for weeks on end! So frustrating!!!

    Does anyone have any good ideas about how to maintain a sense of purpose whilst on mat leave? I have a few jobs I want to get done - mainly sorting out cupboards etc, but I'm finding it really strange not having a routine or a need to get up in the morning (not that I can lie-in - my bladder and pregnancy bodyclock prevents that!!!!) Having said that, I want to feel like I'm being productive, but I don't have much energy! Ohhhhhh! Catch 22!

    xxx
