Happy Friday ladies,
Baby out vibes to Penny and Mrs P. I saw your update Prnny, sorry you don't think the sweep worked. Hopefully no more power cuts today and this baby gets moving on its own.
Another day of work for me but at least it has been a short week. Probably TMI but I think I've started to lose my plug. Can't believe how close things are getting :)

LD- that's exciting news! I'm also a bit jealous- 34+6 and no sign of plug at all over here!!! (Not a sentence I ever thought I'd be saying....)
ABC- Bless L how funny! Glad lots of nice kicks:-)
Lots of baby out vibes for Penny/Mrs P.
Not much to report here. Baby still feeling nice and low and moving a lot, think he's going to be comfy in there for a good while though! I did have what I can only describe as cramps last night -quite low down, I'm not sure if the were BH as nothing went tight and I haven't really had them yet to know what they felt like?? (plus I though they were tightenings rather than cramp so probably just stretching pains)

Big baby out vibes to Mrs P and to Penny! - not long now girls and your bundles of joy will be here!
LD - i didnt know you could lose your plug so early??? this is news to me! i will now be on knicker watch even more so than normal!
ABC - good news with the kicks, long may they continue
Rose - i have been having lots of BH, my bump goes rock hard and i get a lot of cramps! its all meant to be positive though apparently its our body preparing Bla Bla Bla!!!
AFM - same old same here! feeling really big now and getting uncomfortable which is kinda crap as potentially i still have 9 weeks until this bambino arrives! anyway! happy friday everyone! x

Little Dude, hope work goes quickly. Can't believe you've lost your plug, not sure I've lost mine yet!
Abk, good luck at the midwife today!
Rose, sounds promising to me. All sounds like preparation in good time.
NLH, hope you're not too uncomfortable. I'm convinced you'll be early (hopefully not too early though) you might even be first in 2014!
Afm, thanks for the baby out vibes! Need things to start today if I want to hit that 4th Jan date! Officially on the overdue bench now :-(
Seriously though, I'm not too uncomfortable yet (but not far off) and know he will just come when ready so am just going to relax as much as possible before it all kicks off.
Baby outs Penny! Xxx

LD, losing your plug already, omg baby will be here before you know it. I always think you are just a couple of weeks ahead of me but you are a bit more than that so it's always a surprise seeing your ticker
ABC, hope midwife goes well. Your poor H being woken, M is the opposite if I lie in she comes up numerous times, if H lies in she leaves him alone! So unfair
Rose, another who is much further ahead of me than I think. Hope the cramps ease off
NLH, think positive, term is 37 weeks which is only 4 weeks to go so it might not be as long as you think x
MrsP, baby out on the 4th vibes to you! Hope you can relax lots in the meantime
AFM, got home yesterday afternoon and no more bleeding. Got hold of my community midwives this morning so they are going to speak to hospital consultant and call me back. Last night I packed an overnight bag for M, arranged babysitters to be on standby in case i need to get to hospital quickly, did an online food shop, ordered Ms new bed and ordered a few things we need for baby just so I'm organized if he puts in an early appearance. Plan for this morning is to pack a bag for me just in case, then do a little housework and put my feet up. M is back at nursery this morning so got a few quiet hours :)
Hope everyone else is doing well, baby out vibes to Penny too

Weekender, glad to see you are home and no more bleeding! Hope you have a relaxing day x

I'm not convinced it was the whole thing but after googling images (urgh I don't recommend it) some of it has come away at least. It seems really early though but my google research assures me it means nothing haha.
ABC - glad you are getting lots of kicks. Hope the mw appt goes well.
Rose - that sounds like Braxton hicks!
NLH - Sorry you're feeling uncomfortable.
Mrs P - That's a good idea to make the most of relaxing while you can.
Weekender - glad you are home now and good work with the organisation. Have a good day resting, I know what you mean as I always think your at the same stage as me!
03/01/2014 at 09:55
Friday already, would love to work a 2 day week permanently!!
LD - I'm not sure I would know if I started to lose mine?! Pregnancy is so glamourous isn't it?
ABC - Welcome to 3rd tri. That is funny, but I'm sure your H isn't very amused!
Rose - Sounds like your body is getting ready, I've been getting more tightenings too.
NLH - Think positive and hopefully baby will be on time. I know what you mean though, I am very impatient at the best of times so I think I'll be a nightmare as DD approaches.
Mrs P - Glad you aren't too uncomfortable, hopefully baby won't keep you waiting much longer.
WE - I'm glad you have been able to get a bit more organised just in case, but hopefully baby is going to stay put for a while longer.
AFM - Not much to report. Took a bump pic this morning for the first time in ages so will try and upload it later on. Definitely growing! This weekend I'm going to start washing baby clothes and getting my hospital bag started. Oh and order the pushchair, tried last night but the site wasn't working for me :(

*pops head in***
Baby out vibes to Penny and Mrs P! Come on babies! These winter babies sure like to keep us waiting!
Hello to everyone :-)
03/01/2014 at 09:59
LD, thanks for the vibes. I lost part of my plug at 35+6 but it doesn't mean anything unless your waters break so I wouldn't worry. Trust me, I checked with various midwives several times! It is a bit gross though lol.
ABC hope all is OK at the midwife
Rose that doesn't sound like BH as your whole uterus goes tight and you can't really mistake it. I found that I had cramps around your stage because baby was doing so much growing so it might just be that.
NLH I reckon your baby will be here in less than 9 weeks.
Thanks Mrs Penguin.... I'm only begrudgingly allowing you on the bench with me cos I'm sending you loads of baby out vibes for a 4th Jan birthday!!
Weekender, glad you're home and you sound very organised which I think is very sensible. Make sure you do rest up though OK?
Nothing going on here, sweep didn't work. It's been 24 hours now so just have to wait for Sundays one. At least I have power today so can distract myself with the Internet and crap TV.

I'm so slow to type on my tablet....
Mrs V can't wait to see the bump pic! !
Gemini thanks for the vibes. Hope all is good with you and baby F X

Penny - your having a jackfruit :-o
03/01/2014 at 11:19
Penny, I have no choice but to take it easy even if I didn't want to, H is fussing like a mother hen! He's doing housework without being asked and cups of tea keep appearing in front of me but I've just got up and had a shower so yeah I'm def taking it easy
Sorry to hear the sweep didn't work. When I had one with M my bishops score was 2 I think? I went on to have a positive induction though, hopefully you won't need that though x
03/01/2014 at 11:30
Show us the bump pic Mrs V. Sounds like you've got a nice weekend planned. I love organising things.
That's good to know Penny! I was going to mention it at my next mw appointment.
Ahh that's very sweet of your H weekender. Make the most of it!
03/01/2014 at 11:43
Aww weekender bless your H. My score was 5 yesterday but that's still in the 'unlikely to work' category. Apparently it needs to be over 8? I'm just going to wait and see what happens on Sunday now I think.
