Hello ladies. Isn't it lovely having a long weekend?! Hope you're all nicely relaxed :)
We're waiting for a phone call for a scan appt, but otherwise - if we don't hear - we go to day care for monitoring at 2pm, then try to get scanned, then see consultant sometime in afternoon. For someone who intended not to set foot inside the hospital at any point, I'm there a lot! Had labour pains last night and overnight so although I have zero hope of spontaneous labour, a less unfavourable cervix would be wonderful news. I reckon we're to be looking at Wednesday latest to evict Baxter, we're on 40+16 today per the hospital's dates. I'm going to ask their advice first, and unless there's a reason not to I'd like to try one more set of gels, but go straight from that in to C-section (same day) if waters can't be broken. They may not agree but we'll give it a go :)

Counter so much good luck and baby out vibes for you today. You must be getting totally fed up by now.
I'm exhausted. I had the worst sleep and the worst dreams, my dreams were so awful I can't even bring myself to talk about them. Plus C has now woken me up so at this time as he was so noisy getting out if bed. I'm in a real grump. Urgh!

So sorry, Imp. Those dreams can be outright horrific, and linger far too long. Hope you're able to get a good start to the day and shake it off x

Thanks counter. I'm being way too dramatic so I'm going to get out and snap myself out of it!
What's your plan this morning? Just waiting to hear about the scan?

I'm still in bed. I've had Rice Krispies and Easter egg :) We're walking Lily to the beach in a bit, it looks lovely out. I'll call about the scan whilst we're out. It's a weird feeling, if there's any concern on fluid levels I'll probably have a CS today, but we don't know. Ah well, go with the flow :)

Easter egg for brekkie sounds like a good way to start the day to me.

Crashing in to wish Counter good luck, that is one comfy baby! Hope you are holding your baby very soon (I reckon it's a girl....) X
Hi to everyone else

Counter - I really feel for you. Sending all the baby out vibes I've got to you that your little one gets a move on soon. Must be so comfortable in there!!!! Sounds like you've had a good start to the day already.
Imp - sorry you had such a rubbish sleep. Hope you have a chilled out day and feel better later.
AFM - last day off before returning to work tomorrow. Really not looking forward to it. I need to put the place back to normal today after all the decorating and furniture building. We ended up building the crib yesterday because OH wanted to. What could I say?!? Looks fab. I can't stop looking at it. Happy days.
Hope everyone has a lovely Easter Monday xxx

Best of luck Counter - lots of baby out vibes to you!
Imp - sorry you had such awful dreams. Hope you manage to get some rest today.
CA - It's lovely getting things ready isn't it!
AFM - pleased a busy Easter weekend at work is over. Off today and will do some laundry and baking of some description. It's raining and everywhere is busy so not going anywhere! H has text me to say he has the night off so we may get a takeaway tonight.
Hope everyone has a lovely Easter Monday!

Counter, so many baby out vibes to you! I really hope that Baxter gets a wriggle on soon.
Imp, sorry you had horrible dreams, hope you can squeeze a nap in today and that your grump has eased x
Hi Weekender :)
CA, so exciting that you've built your crib. I would keep looking at it too...there'll be a baby in there soon!! Eeeek!!!
Ixia, enjoy your day off, yum to takeaway for tea :)
AFM, we had an offer accepted on a house on Saturday! They've already moved out so if all goes to plan we could be in within 4-6 weeks. I'm trying not to get my hopes up though as we've been here before and then it all fell through. We're hoping to book the survey next week.
Hope everyone has a nice Easter Monday, baby out vibes a plenty to those who need them x

Tentative congratulations to you Fig! Hope everything goes well!
21/04/2014 at 10:39
Thanks Ixia :)
21/04/2014 at 10:43
Counter, I'm beginning to think Baxter thinks our baby out vibes are really baby stay in vibes. All the good luck in the world for getting him/her out ASAP!
Imp, dreams in pregnancy are so vivid, I'm sorry yours were bad, though.
CA, the crib looked great! And how sweet that it was your OH who wanted it built :)
Ixia, enjoy your day inside and I hope you enjoy whatever delicious thing you bake!
Congratulations, Figaro!! I know things can fall through, but you've got to have some good luck this time.
AFM, a lazy day today, but the sun has come out so might do some laundry, hi to everyone else, hope Easter Monday treats you all well!

Just crashing to say good luck counter!!! Yours has to me one of the most long awaited birth announcements in md history!!!
21/04/2014 at 12:08
CA the crib looks fab! I hope work tomo isn't too bad, just count down the days until Friday if it is!
Ixia what will you bake? I've just made some flapjacks, they smell amazing.
Fig eeek about the house. So excited for you. I will be keeping my fingers crossed for you.
Wispa enjoy your lazy day! The sun is out here just now but I think we've got rain forecast for later, sad times.
Well I've snapped myself out of my grump. I've been shopping, baked some flapjack and I'm now sitting in the garden with the cat.

Imp - we've got banana and honey muffins in the oven, hot cross buns on the go and H has started making granola.
Wispa - hope you've enjoyed your lazy day :)
