Happy due date to CJ, I know she doesn't get on much anymore as has log on issues but I think she lurks!
BABY OUT vibes for VE and BW (plus a load for me too!)
Insomnia has got me and I'm wide awake ridiculously early, joy!
Busy ish day today, mum over this morning and I've got a big batch cook spag bol to make, plus I've got to take the dogs for their spring haircut (!) and then a 1st Birthday party later for an NCT friend's 2nd baby. Shall be ball bouncing and walking as much as I can!

Lots of eviction vibes to all who need them! I'll be requesting them next week too.
Hep- sounds like you have a productive day planned. I might be the only pregnant person I know not planning to batch cook. I can't be bothered! Hope you have time for a catch up nap later.
AFM- anyone else getting really hot? Took sammy to ride in the afternoon yesterday and had to strip down to a vest! I was boiling, then last night I had the covers off. We went for a long walk in the morning so by the end of the day I was shattered. Working from home all week. Last week at work! Woo hoo! Scan and consultant tomorrow lunchtime. That's about it for me.
Have a good day everyone
36+1 ( how did that happen?!)

Baby out vibes to Hep, VE and CJ if she needs them!
Hep - sounds like you have a very busy day ahead! Hope you get a bit of rest at some point!
AFM - back to work today. 3 week count down is on until I finish! Cannot wait! Been getting a bit more sleep of late, but the minute I have to get up to the loo, it takes me forever to get comfy.
Packed my hospital bag yesterday and H had a shot at putting a nappy on a stuffed toy as practice as well as dressing it. It was so cute to watch him. He's so unsure of himself, but seems a bit better now. I had a small happy cry packing baby's hospital bag. Can't believe Litttle One will be here soon!
Hi to all who follow!
15/04/2013 at 07:06
Missed you WH! I've been fighting with the heat too. H even commented how warm I was. I laughed and said "well i'm an oven, so I should be!"
woo to last week at work for you! I'm a litttle jealous! Hope the scan and consultant goes well.

Holy c r a p!! I cant be on the leaderboard!!!! Baby out vibes to VE, Hep and CJ!
Wow Hep you are busy today. Might get things moving though!!
WH - yep i am roasting all the time too and it makes me really crabby!!
Well done on getting your bag done RKB!
AFM - I have woken up really grumpy! Poor G will be glad to go to pre school!! As usual i tossed and turned all night so didnt sleep great. Had a lovely day at the park in the sun with H and G yesterday and did a nice long walk. Hope my mood improves soon!! Not even sure why i feel such a grump!
15/04/2013 at 07:33
Rkb- wow, you're working so late! What do you do again? Take it easy this next few weeks. It took my H a while to get to grips with nappy changes but you get enough practice!
15/04/2013 at 07:34
Mm- the *** maybe?! I was in a bad mood yesterday actually mostly because I was tired and hot. Hope you get some rest today
15/04/2013 at 08:10
I managed another hour after I posted this morning so not quite as shattered!
WH, yes I'm getting boiling too! I wondered if it was just me!
RKB, my H just 'got' the nappy thing when it was our real baby IYSWIM. It's the number of wipes he used that always made me laugh
MM, hope the grump eases off soon!
I'm off for a bath quickly now
15/04/2013 at 08:18
Lots of baby out vibes for Hep, VE and BW
Hep - hope your busy day does the trick!! I need to start thinking about batch cooking too.
WH - hooray to your last week at work. I have been feeling really warm too, easpecially at night - think it might be linked to adding the bad pad to the mattress!!
RKB - Glad that the trial run with the nappies went well!! I just about have my hospital bag packed too.
MM - hope your mood improves ... although it could be the ***.... maybe a sign of a queue jumper???
AFM - had a busy weekend, lots of sorting out finished and NCT all day yesterday, felt shattered last night and was asleep from 8pm, but then slept really badly, which is frustrating! Last 4 days at work this week, WFH most of the week, but in London on Thurs ... the countdown is on!!
15/04/2013 at 08:21
Hep...you were up early, I had to drag myself out of bed this morning!! Enjoy your busy day, tons of baby out vibes to you >>>>>>>
WH.. I've been feeling hot for ages but the last few days I've been worse too! Yay to last week at work, it's my last week too!
Rkb...well done getting organised! Not long left at work for you too, exciting!
mm...i've been grumpy too, think it's just that time now and were fed up! Not long to go though! Enjoy your plans today!
Afm... we finally booked our section, it's on Friday 3rd may, eek!!
Spent the weekend feeling Ill but not too bad this morning, kids back to school today and my last week at work, thank god as I've had enough now!
Hope it's as sunny out as it looks through the window baby out vibes to those needing them and I will pop back in a bit!!
15/04/2013 at 08:50
libby - oooh exciting to get your CS date fixed - not long to go now!!
15/04/2013 at 09:28
Hep - sounds like you have a busy day planned. Hopefully all the activity will trigger something! Lots of baby out vibes
WH - yes, I am constantly boiling! Keep kicking off the covers as wel! Lucky you wfh all week and woo hoo for it being your last week!
RKB - well done on packing the hospital bag, another thing for my to do list! Glad that the nappy trial run went well!
MM - like others have said, maybe the mood is the ****?! Noticed from the leaderboard that you don't have a PP. Am happy to offer my services if you want them!
Al - Am also sleeping badly lately which really sucks! Hope the last few weeks at work go quickly for you!
Libby - Exciting news about the section, not long to go now!
Afm - have my 32 week mw appointment this afternoon and again H is in meetings so can't come with me which means more pitiful stares in the waiting room!! He managed to make it last time and recorded the heartbeat so not too fussed about going solo this time!
The ladies at my work are so sweet and have had three of them bring in nappies that they collected from Sainsburys in their free offer over the weekend for the "baby bump" as they call him/her! So thoughtful!
Baby out vibes to all that need them! xxx
15/04/2013 at 10:07
ferbs, H hasn't been to any appointments with me, apart from 12 and 20 week scans. I didn't think it was odd. Sure no one is pitying you love xx
15/04/2013 at 10:21
Eek I can't belive the leader board is now showing May ladies! Lots of vibes for you overdue ladies. I went 9 days overdue with O and it sucked.
Hep, sounds like you have a nice busy day planned, enjoy!
WH, yes I am really hot as well (oh the irony!) and I am ALWAYS cold. I didn't even put the winter duvet on the bed this winter, I just have my summer one on still!
RKB, well done on doing your hospital bag, that's my task for this week. When is your next appointment?
MM, I get the grumps as well some days. Have some cake to cheer yourself up x
Alocin, woo hoo last week at work! You will skip out of there this week!
Libby, gosh that seems so soon. I am so jealous!
Ferbs, my H hasn't been to any mw appointments with me, I don't think most do. He did come to the consultant though. That's really nice of people giving you the nappies. I don't shop in Sainsers so didn't get any.
AFM, not much going on here. Made the most of the sunshine yesterday and took the kids to Chessington as our merlin passes expired yesterday so it was literally our only chance. I expected it to be horrendous as it was a nice day and although it was busy it was actually ok/. I couldn't really go on anything so I just walked around (pushing the picnic in A's buggy!) and was most impressed I managed 5 hours there. I thought i'd be in agony but I was fine. I also slept rubbish last night but we are home now for the rest of the day waiting for the boiler man so I am about to start tackling the ironing of the pile of baby clothes I have washed. Grabbed a few bits in Tesco this morning for my hospital bags so want to get them done this week as well.
15/04/2013 at 10:26
Rusty - I don't mind H not coming, it just seems that everytime I am in the waiting room at my Drs or the hospital every other person is with their OH except me!
Morph - glad you had fun at Chessington yesterday and that you were feeling ok after. Hope the boiler man doesn't keep you waiting all day
15/04/2013 at 13:31
Good afternoon ladies, I am still here!!!
Happy due date CJ, see you on the overdue bench tomorrow, it's getting quite crowded!!
Hep - bloody insomnia, I feel your pain, why do our bodies think it is a good idea to not let us sleep when we certainly won't be soon!! Well done on the batch cooking, I cannot BA this time, Tesco will be our friend. Oh and my Daddy who used to be a chef keeps bringing food round!!
WH - yes! I have been roasting this time, I was cleaning the fridge this morning and got so hot I stripped down to my undies, H was a bit surprised when he walked in!!
RKB - how cute that your H has been practising!! He will be fine once it is a real baby.
MM - I hope you are in a better mood now, it could well be the a r s e. Which I will get if you are going to have the baby soon
Alocin - yippee for almost finishing work, it is such a great feeling when you leave! Sounds like you had a busy weekend!
Libby - 3rd May, how exciting!! Not long to go now. It must be lovely knowing when baby will be here.
Ferbs - how odd you get looks, I invariably go alone and leave I with H if he is at home so I get time to read a magazine whilst I wait. He has been to some appts but really as long as he was at the scans I don't see the point. All it is is wee testing blood pressure etc, bit boring really!!! Nice to have a stash of free nappies.
Morph - brave lady going to Chessington yesterday, am glad you had a good time. I hope the boiler man comes soon. What is this ironing of the baby clothes you speak of???
AFM - lovely day yesterday, after feeling pants I took some paracetamol,felt better so spent the afternoon in the garden with H and I. So nice to get a few things done. This morning we have been on a play date with crisps and cake and now I is down for her nap so thinking of going for one myself.
On the negatives, back is really sore today, sleeping badly and my tens pads which I ordered om 22nd March are STILL NOT HERE!! I am blaming them for me not going into labour as I am too scared to without the pads!! I have chased them again but reordered from someone else today. Fingers crossed they arrive soon.
H did the food shopping whilst we were out so another boring job off the list.. MIL has I on a Tuesday so happy to not have baby tomorrow so I can get things done! Or just enjoy the peace!!!

Thanks so much for offering your PP services Ferbs. I wasnt really sure what one does apart from the BA? I kind of thought if i was with it enough to text i would be with it enough to update MD? Or is there more to it??
VE. I dont think i will queue jump anyone! Although baby is very low i dobt feel as though anything is about to happen......!
15/04/2013 at 14:06
As I understand it, a PP is to also give support as well as keeping everyone updated/pass on your BA. Offer is there if you want it xx
15/04/2013 at 14:10
Awwww thank you. Will definitely give it some thought!! Xx
