Sending lots of vibes to WW ....hope you've had a better time since you'd last update and baby is well on the way by now, if not already enjoying cuddles!
Lots of luck to Pep too....hope things picked up for you yesterday.
AFM - Busy weekend here....302 miles covered in 2 days, but was worth it to see a squishy newborn on Saturday and attend a christening yesterday. Can tell I've overdone it though as have horrendous cankles this morning and am just generally v v achy! An easy day is on the agenda...vegging and then taking O to soft play so he can run around and I can stick my feet up with a cuppa!
Hope you're all well xx

Morning Coco, glad you had a good weekend and have an easy day ahead. Feet up with a cuppa sounds ideal!
I had a fairly good weekend. Went to the matinee ballet at the royal Albert Hall with the ILs on Saturday, then out for dinner. Got home at midnight, very tired and achy. Yesterday we aimed to get out in the Peak District for the day, but on and off drizzle put paid to any plans for climbing or long walks, so we ended up having a nice café lunch, and a short hour long walk to try to work it off a bit. Today I need to blitz the housework then drive into town for a few things, come home and sort a major to do list for my last week at work this week. I'll try to pop back later though, and hope everyone else is OK and that WW is a proud mummy enjoying her cuddles!

Hope you are doing ok WW and baby is here/almost here!
Coco - sounds like a hectic weekend. Rest up lots today!
BF - your weekend sounds lovely. Hope today isn't too busy.
AFM - hectic weekend here too. IL's over Friday night which was stress from start to finish - then over to Hull on Saturday for my BIL's girlfriends 30th meal, my back was killing so I only lasted until 10pm but meant we could relax in bed to watch the England match. Was falling asleep during the second half I was so tired! Then yesterday we went to Brid which is where my dad's ashes are scattered and had a lovely walk along the front but my legs are paying for it today.
Yellow to those that follow! X

WW - hope everything is going well with you. Can't wait for an update
Coco - gosh you got around a bit at the weekend didn't you?!?!? Glad you had a good time. Not so good about the aches and cankles though.
BF - sounds like you've been busy too. Hope you have a productive day.
Browny - busy weekend for you too!!!! Hope your back is a bit better too. Its hard to stay up for the late night kick offs in the World Cup
AFM - even though I finished work on Friday I feel like today is my first day of maternity leave. I have no idea what I'm going to do. I feel lost already. The sun is shining here and I think its to be nice all day so I might try to get out and about for a bit. Not sure what I'll do though.
Hope everyone has a lovely Monday

Coco your weekend sounds lovely. Sorry your cankles are up, this heat doesn't help does it? I hope O burns off all his energy so you get an easy ish day to rest your weary feet and ankles.
BF good luck with the housework.
Browny how was it with your inlaws? This is the first time they've stayed at your new place isn't it? Glad you had a good weekend otherwise!
Afm I had a lovely weekend and we've nearly got the nursery finished now. Just waiting for some bits and pieces I've ordered to arrive and then I'll flash it. Today will consist of pottering. So not much really but that's ok as it's sunny i just sit in the garden!

missed you there Imp - glad you had a lovely weekend and got the nursery finished. Its so exciting!!!! Can't wait for the flashes!!! Enjoy some relaxation in the sunshine xx
CA I missed you there. A walk I the sunshine will be lovely! It took me a few days to adapt to being off but now I'm fine with it, you've been so busy you're bound to take a while to adapt. Try and just do what you fancy doing, or nap if nothing else!

Hello ladies! Apologies that my visits here are so sporadic!
Coco - you really did cover the miles this weekend! Hope your ankles go down soon :)
Barefoot - I am on my last week at work this week too, hope you get everything sorted!
Browny - Your walk sounds lovely, hope you don't take too long to recover.
Candy Apple - Enjoy the relaxation of your maternity leave, hope you don't get too bored!
Imp - looking forward to a nursery flash!
AFM - working from home this morning as I have my 36 week growth scan this afternoon. Have painted the second coat on the windowsills in the bedroom and we put up the new blackout blinds yesterday so I managed to sleep later than 4am when the daylight used to start streaming through the old curtains! Didn't get through my to do list this weekend and need to get stuff sorted before my baby shower/garden party next Saturday!! Baby is very active today, currently kicking my bladder which makes me wince a lot!! I think I am paranoid that baby is coming early as my mum still has another week and a half of holiday! My plan B maternity cover finally accepted this morning after getting cold feet on Friday so I have to plan lots of handover in 4 days!! Eek!
Hello to all those who follow!

Coco - hope you have a lovely relaxing day and you feel less achey soon.
BF - hope you have a productive day and get done the things that you need to.
Browny - hope your legs feel better soon.
CA - enjoy the sunshine!
Imp - glad you had a lovely weekend. Looking forward to seeing a flash of the nursery!
Kapowski - hope the scan goes well. Glad you managed to sleep longer than 4am and that your maternity cover has accepted.
AFM - had a busy weekend seeing my parents on Saturday and met a friend for lunch and a walk yesterday. Ended up walking further than we anticipated so ached really badly last night and couldn't get comfortable so I forced myself to have a lie-in this morning and am doing very little today. H has been told he can have tonight off work so we're having a Chinese takeaway tonight - I cannot wait!

CA - its hard to adapt to being off. I found it really hard when I was made redundant, but you soon get into a routine. Have a chilled one today and don't put pressure on yourself to enjoy the time as it'll just stress you out iykwim! Just go with the flow!
Imp - yes it was the first time and if I had anything to do with it it would be the last! Well my MIL and SIL were fine it was just FIL. Too much to go in to but it really wasn't ideal them all being here. I think H has seen how it wont work when baby is here thank god so if FIL is coming up they will have to stay in a hotel. Glad you have your nursery almost finished, can't wait to see a flash!
Kapowski - sounds like you have a busy day on your hands! Baby stay in vibes to you!
Ixia - its so easy to overdo it isn't it. Its nice you can have a relaxed day today and enjoy your takeaway tonight!
After I posted my first post I think I had a mild panic attack. I have a history of anxiety and I just felt overwhelmingly anxious, could hardly breathe and my heart was racing. I just felt so panicked and anxious but there wasn't a reason for it. I put on some relaxing music (that I usually listen to during times of stress etc) but it didn't work so I took myself off to bed and laid down listening to the music. I think I slept a bit too, but I feel loads better now. I have no idea what came over me. I have been feeling quite breathless in the last few weeks but I'd read its normal in pregnancy. Just going to take it easy the rest of the day. Hopefully it was a one-off :/

Ixia - Chinese take away sounds amazing!
Browny - Sorry to hear you had an anxiety attack, hope you are feeling a bit better now?
My 36 week scan is done, baby is still head down with an estimated weight of 7lbs. Happy sonographer, happy consultant and happy mummy :) Booked in again for 40 weeks but he said in the nicest possible way he hopes he doesn't see me!
