Guess what? It's my last day at work today! Got a fun day planned as it's children in need, so lots of making goodies with the children and face painting before I wave bye bye for ten months, currently feels so surreal!
It was lovely to see Little Pixies BA- congratulations! Big baby out vibes to those needing them! :-)
I had my MW appt yesterday too, she had a job finding babys head as he was really far down.. 3/5 engaged. obiously this could be like this for weeks and weeks but would explain the discomfort in my pelvis!
happy Friday all!

Oh Gem enjoy your last day!! Must be a good feeling! I'm finishing up at 36+3 too!!
Was delighted to see LPs BA too! So pleased baby sparkles is here!
That would certainly explain your discomfort but good news that he's getting in place though.
I had the MW y'day, baby is most definitely breech (which I knew!). When she was feeling around the head it was very sore and my bumps still sore at that bit. He really does not like my MW apps, as soon as she comes near me to start prodding around he starts bouncing about like mad! Other than the breech all is well, measuring fine and everything else all ok.
I have the midwife again in 3 weeks and my scan with the consultant at 36+6 so he has 4 weeks to get turned round so I'm going for a read on the spinning babies website!
Hope everyone is doing well and BE - loads of baby out vibes coming your way xx

Happy Friday everyone!
Gemini- you lucky thing, have fun!
Missdeedee- ive heard lots of good things about spinning babies website, hole it helps!
My bump is still acheing after a day walking round the palace (updated the post late y.day) hope it eases off soon, we are heading home today after a great week so I'll be taking it easy!
My 2 besties are taking me for lunch tomorrow so I think it might be my "surprise" shower!!

I think the pain turned into braxton hicks over breakfast. I described the constant pain to H as when u are absolutely bursting for a wee. I know its not that as im going about every 10 mins! Then I got waves of it getting really painful! There is no way im going to cope with real contractions!

Gemini, hope you have a good last day, sounds like a fun one!
MDD, glad the mw went well. Lots of spinny baby vibes coming your way.
Mrs Bass, glad you've had a good trip, have a safe and restful! Journey home. Enjoy your shower tomorrow!
Loads of baby outs to BE!
Afm, quiet weekend planned. Think we'll do a few bits round the house on one day and have a day out somewhere on the other. Pootle is kicking away like a mad man, some are quite painful! It's shocked me at how powerful some if them are

I started my leave last week; I needed to bring it forward as I was just to tired to work anymore! The end is in sight now and I'm sure I'm not the only one who is relieved!
I'm 35&5 now, head engaged, having proper BH contractions every evening starting at around teatime. I've broken out the TENS machine and am on the ball to cope with the pain. Managing to get a few jobs done each day, and sorting out my hospital bags today.
I'm also knee deep in cusion wadding as one of the dogs has shredded a cushion whilst I was upstairs and I can't bend over to clear it up! that can wait until H is home I think!!

MrsP- sounds like a good weekend!
Sange-that sounds painful, I hope the tens is working.
I decided that I was having BH this morn, carried on for a while. I started to thimk if I should start timming the pain! But then it stopped!
We have just got home to a very cold house! H seemed to forget that he had a heavily pregnant wife who needs to go to the loo every 10 mins and decided to take the scenic & longer route home. Luckily we got back b4 I wet myself!

MDD- ouch to the MW poking around! Big vibes that he moves and turns around!
Mrs Bass- take it easy! Enjoy the day with frend, hope your spoit! Braxton hicks are so uncomfy! :-(
Mrs P- have a lovely relaxing weekend, they are the best!:-)
Sange- hello! Sorry your in pain, hope the tens machine and bouncing on the ball helps a little!
Well work is now done! Feel a hormonal, emotional mess. I am utterly overwhelmed at the generosity of my work friends, the children and parents. I had a car full of presents and cards! Including a Morrck hoodie,baby clothes, flowers, indulgent smellies, baby toiletries, nappies, wipes, v tech toys, lamaze toys and blankets to name a few. I had a good cry!
Said I'd go and watch the childrens nativity if im still with a bump, nativity day is due date so shall see!
Now an evening in with hubby, chinese and tv! Hubby even bought me a maternity present his morning before I left for work!
