Sending oodles of baby out vibes to Ixia, as well as Imp and Kapowski whose due dates are literally just around the corner!
I had a terrible night's sleep as woke with a nightmare...think everything is just in overdrive at the moment and my mind is playing havoc with me. Otherwise all fine here bar the aches and pains that come with this stage of pregnancy (period like pains a plenty over the weekend!) Nothing major planned today but will take O out for the morning somewhere :-)
Hi to all who follow xx

Sorry to hear you had a bad night coco, I hope today is better.
I'm pretty rubbish at getting into the third tri thread, but all is ok. This is my last week at work. Saw the Tour de France yesterday which was fun. Looking forward to Friday and holiday beginning. Hi to all who follow. God luck to ixia, kapowski and imp.

Coco - I have been just the same this week, bodies are getting ready I think! have a nice morning with O
Raincloud - hope your last week at work goes smoothly!
AFM - I am already at my desk! insomnia is raging with me at the moment, just cannot settle. managed to get get a lot done over the weekend ready for the bedroom swap so we are ready for next weekend and painting/new carpet/new beds - then baby can come and I will stress no more! Big week this week, two induction days at school plus last day at nursery for M, prom for Lauren and then they are off on holiday for a week with my parents - I got very upset about it all last night, I actually don't want them to go but I know I will let them, will be counting down the days until they return. Think it has really hit me with M as she is only 4 and although she spends every day with my parents, if something was to happen to her in Corfu due to baby I couldn't fly to get to her which is freaking me out a bit. ho hum, they will have a fab time I am sure!
Hi to all that follow, will pop back later x

Coco - sorry to hear of the aches and pains but hopefully it's a good sign!
RC - bet you can't wait to finish work! Hope your last week goes well.
Nina - you have a lot going on and you are bound to get overwhelmed! Try not to think about the what ifs - easier said than done I know!
AFM - feeling fed up at the minute. I went into town with my sister yesterday afternoon, walked for all of about 10 mins and my back was killing me. I'm just so fed up of being so immobile. Then I couldn't even comfort my nephew when he was unsettled as it hurt my back. I'm worried about it still hurting once my baby is here and how I'll cope. I think a trip to the docs might be in order. I have physio today - first referral up here and its a group session so probably just everything I've heard before but I'm hoping to speak to them afterwards see if they can give me any pointers. I also have a pregnancy massage booked in for Friday (can't wait!) any ideas what I wear? I have to lay on my side apparently.

Coco sorry you're not sleeping well. I've found the hormones are making my dreams mad too. Enjoy your time out with O, is it sunny?
RC happy last week at work! I hope you have a great week.
NB it does sound a lot going on in one week, it's bound to effect you. I hold the insomnia gives you some rest and you get a decent sleep in.
Browny I had a massage and had to strip down to my underwear. Although they had one of those pregnancy cushions with a belly hole so I could lie on my front. I would wear a 2 part oitfit so skirt and top rather than dress so you can feel less exposed if it's just your top half that's needed?
Sorry you were so sore yesterday too. It's do hard being immobile. You have all my sympathies.
Afm well dd is tomo! I'm feeling a bit happier about that fact I'm likely to go over, I'd much rather happy feet was here but there's no point stressing about it, what's important is their safe arrival.
Any baby out vibes are much appreciated though so keep on sending them!

Quick Hi to everyone - its my last week in work and we have an auditor here checking us until Wednesday - I look like a whale as no proper work clothes fit me :(
Hi to all xxx
07/07/2014 at 09:24
Coco - sorry you had a bad night :(
RC - yay to it being your last week at work!
NB - hope you manage to get some decent sleep soon - you've certainly got a lot on at the moment.
Browny - sorry you are so immobile :( like Imp said, I had to strip to my underwear for my massage. I also lay on my side but they kept me properly supported with rolled up towels so was very comfortable!
Imp - baby out vibes to you. I have a feeling you and Kapowski will be queue-jumping me!
Sue - hope your last week at work goes well.
Nothing much to report from me. Pains are getting worse and I ache everywhere but nothing seems to be progressing or becoming consistent.
07/07/2014 at 09:30
Oh ixia. You poor thing. Is it period style pains? I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for your mw appt tomo, are you hoping for a sweep?
07/07/2014 at 09:41
Imp - yes, it's like bad period pains and tightenings, very low down and all around the front and lower back. MW has already offered me a sweep tomorrow and I've said yes - it's worth a try but I'm aware it may not work.
07/07/2014 at 09:43
It sounds like "stuff" is happening ixia, just annoying that it's not turning into anything- yet!
Good luck for thr sweep tomo, what time's your appt?
07/07/2014 at 09:48
Thank you Imp. The appointment is at 11.40.
07/07/2014 at 09:50
It can all change so quickly ixia so try not to get disheartened, I know it's hard though as you just want to meet baby now.
07/07/2014 at 10:03
I keep telling myself that the due date is only an estimate and she won't be there much longer! I think we all just get so uncomfortable and we're so keen to meet them that we want them to make an appearance!
07/07/2014 at 10:08
Browny - if it helps at all, I had horrendous hip and back pain with Molly and it went virtually as soon as I gave birth it will imrpove
Imp and Ixia - lots of baby out vibes coming your way!!!
Sue - hope the last week at work goes well
07/07/2014 at 10:20
I know it's tough ixia, I've been winding myself up for weeks and now the dd is here I'm driving myself totally bonkers!
The heat isn't helping I don't think!

Hi everyone, late on today and it seems busy!!
Imp, baby out vibes still on their way to you, but glad you seem OK about going a couple of days over.
ixia, seems like something is trying to happen, so hope it progresses soon.
Sue, happy last work week. I empathise with the clothing issue. I'm down to one pair of jeans, 2 tshirts and 2 dresses, one of which makes me look enormous!
Browny, hope the physío goes well and eases the pains :-)
Nina, what s busy week you have!! Please find some time to relax amidst all that rushing around!
Raincloud, happy last week at work to you too, hope it goes quickly for you :-)
Coco, I still have insomnia so I sympathise. Hope you're having a good morning out in the sun.
AFM, had scan and consultant again today, and more confused than ever. Sonographer says my cervix is still clear, baby head down, left lateral so perfect position and no fibroids seen. Hurrah. Consultant has now said they can't just have disappeared, even though last appt he said they had, and whereas last time he said if still no problems today he would support me giving birth where I want to, now he's saying fine to discharge me back to midwife care, but he'll be surprised if my mw is happy to deliver at home. Ffs!! The hospital mw I saw said she'd be fine with it, and I know the other mw on my community team would be, but mine is so over-cautious, I am worried she will try to put me off. I know I have the right to stay at home, and I will be, but could do without the hassle of fighting my corner. Seeing her on Wednesday anyway so nothing I can do until then, and I may get a pleasant surprise!

Imp - thanks for the tips for my massage - at least now I have more of an idea! Can't believe its your due date tomorrow! So exciting! Baby out vibes xxx
Ixia - sounds like things are happening - baby out vibes to you!
Sue - good luck for your last week at work
Nina - thats good to know, I hope its the same for me!
BF - well at least its good news on the fibroid front. Let's hope your MW will let you have the birth you want.
Physio was ok, didn't really tell me much I didn't know or what was already common sense but got a couple more tips at least. I wasn't expecting them to tell me something miraculous that would make all my pain go away, just to help me manage it more. I think I'm just going to have suck it up and not do much for the next 2 months! Oh and lots of massages of course! ;)
