Another busy day at work for me today. Have another training course this morning, but given I ducked out of one last week I should go to this one. Hope I can get everythung I need tofinished today, last Friday I was logged in at home until 10pm.
Does anyone have nice plans for the sunny weekend? We have my SIL's 30th period drama party tomorrow, starting at 2pm and is indoors in central London, I'm looking forward to the party but would have preferred an outside location! Let's hope there is air con at least.
Good luck to Ally today, hope you get an induction date soon!

BG - hope you don't have as much work to do this Fri. Enjoy your weekend, I'd be loving the fact its indoor with air con lol.
Thanks for the good luck :-) I'm so nervous about it, hate internals (don't care in labour but its different when you're not) lots of favourable for induction vibes would be appreciated :-) still not actually sunk in that I'll be having a baby soon. Got a few more bits organised yesterday. No plans for the weekend til we know what the baby plan is.
Will report back when seen consultant

BG, the party sounds like fun, especially the indoors and air con bit!
Ally, hope today goes well, lots of favourable vibes heading your way.
AFM, arm is sore after WC jab but mum-to-be massage was fab and I feel quite relaxed now. Off to school to sew costumes this morning whilst Jacob does another taster in the nursery class, I'm really looking forward to it as it's lovely to sit in a room on my own and just get on - those with kids already will understand! School fete tomorrow and I'm face painting for the afternoon, hope they put me somewhere shady.

Morning BG, party sounds fun this weekend! Hope its not too hot inside for you.
I'm currently in bed as I am having 28 week blood test this morning so can lay in a bit until then. Then MW this afternoon and working from home after that so a more relaxed Starr to the weekend. We have a 4d scan this Sunday which I'm quite looking forward to. They used to creep me out a bit but I'm hoping as its my own baby it won't feel so weird!
Good luck Ally!

I don't know there is air con there for sure, I hope there is and it's not just open windows and fans.
Ally - I know what you mean about the internal, fingers crossed it's favourable news
M - I totally get why you're lookin forward to being on your own. Glad the massage was good
PC - sounds like a nice relaxing day, good luck with your scan tomorrow, hope it doesn't freak you out!
12/07/2013 at 08:04
BG - party sounds fun, lets hope there's air con, this heat is doing me in!
Ally - Hope the consultant agrees to induction and gives you a date.
M - You always seem to have such active fun-filled weekends!
Pop - yay for a lie-in. Youll have to post your 4d piccie on monday!
AFM - been tied up the past couple days sorting my gran out, she's broken her femer, needs an op but needs blood transfusions etc before they'll do it. We have a family visiting rota, and given that I dont have a lot on at the moment I'm doing the lions share of the afternoon hours! Off to see a friend this morning, then up to the hospital, then we have friends coming for dinner, I'm too busy to have this baby! lol

Bridget – ouch, hope today is nowhere near as late as that! Period drama sounds fab. Have lots of fun and hope there is air con. If the hot weather is meant to be returning like the forecast suggests, I’ll be hiding indoors again – thinking of having a clear out of our books.
Ally – hope all goes well with the consultant, lots of vibes coming your way.
Margot – sounds like you have some creative few days, enjoy the sewing and the face painting – I would defo be requesting some shade.
Popcorn – enjoy your relaxed start to the weekend. Hope all goes well at the mw.
Porkchop – wow, that is a busy day. Make sure you’re making some time for yourself to breathe and relax too.
AFM – baby was being very naughty yesterday. It was really quiet all morning so I rang up the unit and was told to monitor for an hour with an ice lolly. Which I did, baby only managed 7 movements and hiccups – which I had been told to get up to 10 so rang back but they decided I didn’t need to be monitored. Typically less than an hour after that baby then perked up beyond belief and spent the rest of the evening moving non-stop as if to let us know they are doing ok in there! Bless H though, he came home from school during that hour in case I did have to go to hospital for monitoring, which made the hormones kick in and I had a little cry! At least today, baby has already been beating me up – so I know we won’t be having a repeat of yesterday.
Just remembered – FIL was chatting to H on Skype the other day and kindly decided to give his suggestion for if we have boy.. apparently we should name him Enoch. Thankfully H said no way was that going to be happening!! I do love how people will just tell you what you should call your baby!
12/07/2013 at 08:19
S - my gran is sure we're having a boy and that it will be called Joseph, not matter how much I tell her it wont!!
Hi all. Son woke at 5:15. I can't quite function yet.
12/07/2013 at 09:25
BG, party sounds fab. Hopefully you can still enjoy the sunshine at the weekend
Ally, hope your appt goes well! Let us know
Margot, glad the massage lived up to expectations!
Popcorn, hope bloods and mw go well. How exciting for a 4D scan!
PC, sorry to hear about your gran. I hope the op goes smoothly. Remember to use lots of the hand gel whilst you're visiting!
Sapphire, glad baby woke up. Mine has been quiet this week, but still moving regularly. Never know when to call triage... luckily he's had a bit of a play this morning so can relax for a few hours. Enoch....interesting!?!
IDC, hope you find your functions later!
AFM - meeting the NCT girls for coffee this morning, first meet up since our course 3 weeks ago. Really hoping we gel a bit! Gonna be a scorcher again today - currently sat in the front room in my PJs with daytime tv on and the front door open - very classy!! haha
12/07/2013 at 09:33
BG - god love you working so late last friday :( fingers crossed you can get everything done today and that training isnt too mind numbing. Have a lovely time at the party.
Ally - Sending tons of induction vibes!
Margot - I need to book in for WC jab, not looking forward to it. Have fun painting faces tomorrow!
Popcorn - Im very jealous, Id love another 4d scan! hope the MW goes well.
PC - really sorry to hear about your nan hope she is ok and they can do her op soon.
Sapphire - Glad everything is ok naughty baby giving you a scare! As much as I love old traditional (especially hebrew) names Enoch is not one Id be going with lol.
IDC - cuddles, hope you are waking up gently now :)
AFM - had a really rough week last week lots of problems with the IL's which sparked anxiety attacks for me. Better this week, did nights earlier in the week back on day shifts from tomorrow. Hubby, brother in law and mum have cleared the nursery. so we just need to buy the paint. Mum and sisters have arranged a baby shower for me they couldnt keep it a suprise because we all work full time and had to arrange a dat we were all off lol, it took a while. 31 week MW appt went well. Hi to all who follow x
12/07/2013 at 09:35
BG - hope you manage to get everything done today and enjoy the party tomorrow
Ally - good luck for today
Margot - hope your arm feels better soon. Mine was worse the day after but quickly recovered after that. Enjoy the school fete tomorrow
Popcorn - hope you had a nice lie in!
PC - hope your grans feeling better soon!
Sapphire - I've noticed less movement this last week, maybe it's the heat making them tired? Glad it's been wriggling lots already today anyway
IDC - boo to the early start, hope you managed to go back to sleep!
PW - enjoy your coffee get together
Luna - sorry to hear about the IL problems, hope your ok
AFM - had a really fed up day yesterday, week 2 of maternity leave and I'm so bored already! There's only so much time you can spend sitting in the garden when it's this hot! Also getting fed up of people ringing to find out if there's any news yet. The MILs been texting every day so yesterday I didn't reply and after 3 hours she called me as she was getting worried. I was planning on not telling anyone I'd gone into labour as I don't want people rushing down until we're ready but that's looking unlikely to happen with the amount of calls and texts I'm getting already. Then had to tell my mum she can't come down straight away as we want to come home and have a few days on our own first, she wasn't too happy about it but at least she knows now. H just has to tell his mum now. The family are 3 hrs away so I'd prefer them to come down when I can deal with having people here for the whole day as its not like they'll just come all that way for an hour.
Anyway not much planned today, going to go to hobbycraft and buy a cross stitch for the baby's room to give me something to do. The fish and chip date I had with my friend ended up being rearranged to tonight so looking forward to that later.
Have a good day everyone

TT, sorry you're getting fed up. It looks like it's going to cool down a little here on Sunday - hopefully you get some relief. We're hoping we can have some family time too before we get all the visitors - it's really tricky to manage people's expectations, especially when they're constantly badgering you. I think my in laws will come up after a couple of days but need to tell them they have to stay in a hotel and can only pop in for a hour at a time. They usually overstay their welcome but if I'm upset I've been known to be very blunt!! Hope it works out when the time comes.
Luna, sorry you've had an anxious time. I'm glad things seem to be picking up now x
12/07/2013 at 10:36
Well I'm back. Slightly disappointing cos she won't induce til nearer due date so am booked in for next Friday. Cervix is soft but not dilated so to see her again on Wed and if still not dilated then I've to go in on the Thurs for the pessaries. At least there is an end date in sight!
12/07/2013 at 11:02

12/07/2013 at 11:26
Hi TT Im ok just got to get a grip lol. Hope you have a lovely night tonight, hubby and I are on the brink of stopping talking to MIL completely. Hope your IL's are understanding, I am completely with you on the being left alone to adjust for the first few days.
Sorry I missed you there PW, thank you, I feel like ripping hubbys head off at the moment but feel terrible because he isnt actually doing anything wrong he is just very wrapped up in family problems. Im the same feel like such a classy bird hahahahahaha.
Ally sorry it wasnt the news you were hoping for but at least you have a date :D
Twink - thank you! yeah we know exactly what we want to do just waiting to buy the paint :( cant wait to see your nursery flash xxx
