Good morning ladies!
I may have been woken early by a small person who is having a string of early rises, but as I'm not really sleeping myself I'm not bothered in the slightest, it gives me something to do instead!!
Feeling chirpy as Ninabeanie and I are term today . The end is in sight....Our babies are nearly here! (Hope you're a getting this memo babies!!)
Not much planned for today. Off for the weekly food shop (yawn!) Then may batch cook later while O naps if I can be arsed. Otherwise it's just a play day with my boy
Have a good one all xx

Morning Coco, happy term day :-). Hope you have a good one playing in the sun.
Not much planned here either. Friend who did my bump picks may pop over (I'd post a couple but MD no longer gives me the opportunity to add a pic, must take that up with the admins) and mw dropping my home birth box off later. Pool ordered to arrive later next week so baby had better stay snug a while longer!

Happy Full Term Day to you and ninabeanie! I hope you're not having to wait too long for the babies to arrive :)
Batch cooking is a great idea! I can understand not being motivated to do it, especially in this heat!! Enjoy your play day with O xx
AFM - I'm another newbie joining third tri this week!! Eeekkk. It doesn't feel that long ago that I was joining first tri!
Today I'm working but then have the weekend off again.. I could get used to this! My friend and her 4 year old daughter are visiting from Sheffield. I haven't seen her for months, so I'm really looking forward to it. She has also offered us her bugaboo pram, as she's not having any more children and its in great condition. She'll be bringing that with her too, hopefully I like it as it'll save us a lot of money buying a brand new one!
Babywise all is ok too!
Hi to all that follow - Have a great day! xx

Coco - happy term day to you and NB! Not long to go now hopefully. Hope the good shop isn't too much hard work and enjoy your day with O.
BF - enjoy seeing your friend if she pops over.
Boo - great to have you join us! Hope you have a nice time with your friend and her LO. That's really handy about her letting you have the pram!
AFM, I've had a terrible night. H was out late with clients last night so I never really sleep properly until I know he's home okay. I managed 3 hours between 9pm and midnight and then he got home just after 1am. We were chatting about baby names for a while then he fell asleep. Problem is when he's had a few drinks his snoring is horrendous. I couldn't bear it so went into the spare room but had to move all the baby stuff I've just been dumping on gne bed. I then didn't get to sleep until about 4am and then of course F wakes just after 6am! LO at nursery today so at least I've got the chance for a rest, once a couple of deliveries have been anyway!
Hope everyone else is well x

Coco - happy term day! Hope you have a lovely day with O. I started online shopping a while ago - I find going to the supermarket exhausting! Good luck!
BF - I think you can add pics on the 'advanced reply' but not sure if you have to be on a computer for that.
Boo - hello and welcome to third tri! Hope you have a lovely weekend with your friend and lucky you getting her pram!
WG - sounds like a horrible nights sleep! Hope you can have a nap or two today to make up for it.
AFM - started iron tablets yesterday. I'm worried about overdoing the tablets as have read what can happen if you have too much (damn google!). I've been told to take one 200mg tablet twice a day, but only took one yesterday. I get dizzy spells but not all the time and same with breathlessness so I don't know if I should just take one a day initially and see how I go?
What's everyone's weekend plans? H is going paintballing tomorrow then we have friends over for dinner and I'm cooking so I hope my back holds out! Then going to do some baby organising stuff on Sunday like getting the car seat fitted, pram up etc.
Hello to those that follow! X

Browny - I've never googled anything about iron tablets so I don't know what stuff you've seen about overdoing them. If it was me, I'd be taking the recommended 2 per day purely because that's what was advised. If it's any help, I was taking 2 per day during the last few months of my first pregnancy. Hope your back holds up for cooking dinner tomorrow!
As for our weekend plans, they consist of gardening and potty training! Hopefully have a BBQ on Sunday.

Just popping in. Hi all hope your good?
I'm 35+3 and uncomfortable :( Braxton's are so strong and running after a toddler is getting harder.
Browny if that's what you've been prescribed you'll be ok. Last pregnancy I was to take 4x200mg a day this time I've to take 3 a day.
Has anyone packed their bag? I can't mind what I need?

WG - I know you are right I'm sure they wouldn't have prescribed me something that could be dangerous I just think I scared myself lol.
Snowflake - thanks that's reassuring to know, I must be on a low-ish dose then. I'm in the process of packing my bag. There is a good list on MD at the top under 'bump to baby' x
