Morning all, and congratulations again to all our graduates over the last few days!
Last but one day of work here, likely to be a busy one as the end of term usually is but still, nearly there! And baby could be here as little as three weeks today which is a bit scary...

Very scary once countdown gets close!
AFM - midwife appt this morning, with bloods and MRSA swabs. Not sure if this is last appt before my section or not? Starting to feel a bit bigger now, but so far only 2st weight gain. Last time it was 3st (I blame Easter eggs) so if I can keep it under 3 this time that will be great. I mentioned this to my Mum and she said you easily weigh lots more if start retaining fluids. I said 1stone of fluid in 4/5 weeks would be madness...
I'm 35+2 today!

Ooh, congrats to the baby mummas out there too. Just heard Kate has been admitted in 'early stages' so maybe another BA today?
(because obviously she is a lurker on here, lol)

Margot - 3weeks is scary. Hope last two days go well.
IDC - hope your weight gain stays smaller. I've only gained one this time but 4st last time!! I was huge.
Afm - it's so nice having mum here. D has latched herself to her so I can sit do nothing lol. Off to shops later to get some bits then got to take dog to vets for his jabs. He hates it. So glad he's little. Nice and sunny here so might actually get the baby clothes washed now that the world's biggest fan of ironing is here.
Hi to all that follow x

Margot enjoy the last day of term, you'll know your date this week! Woo!
IDC hope apt goes well.
Daisy hope you manage to get all your things done and have a rest
Afm didn't sleep well last night, got up at 5am in the end. Lots of funny movement yesterday and bump has changed shape again, I'm praying this means he's turned but it may be my body playing a cruel trick on me...will find out tomorrow at mw apt. Very excited about royal baby!

M - hope your last day goes smoothly!
IDC - Hope all goes well at MW. My weight gain is madness, 2 stone is very respectable.
Daisy - Must be good to have your mum's help, I dont bother with ironing, make the most of her!
D - Hope you can some rest later today. I've given up on sleep, taking it as training!
AFM - still pregnant, still fed up! Although its a little cooler out there today I think. Went to friends yesterday and bobbed in their pool which was lovely! H is keen to get this baby out now as our friends we made at antenatal had their baby on Friday, and were due after me!! Friend is popping over at lunch, and then gonna visit my gran as she's still in the hospital.

Margot - eek it's getting very close for you now. Hope the end of term isn't too stressful for you.
IDC - hope the midwife app goes ok.
Daisy - nice that having your mum there is giving you chance to rest a bit more.
DF - fingers crossed that baby has turned for you!
PC - baby out vibes for you!
AFM - I think that knowing Kate has gone in to labour is actually making me more excited about my own baby hehe! I had a proper thrill of excitement this morning when I heard the news thinking "oooh that will be us soon" (well, 10 ish weeks!). Had a lovely weekend seeing family that I hadn't seen for a while so lots of bump prodding. Not much to report baby wise apart from that, lots of wriggles still although feel more like big stretches which make my bump look weird!

margot - Enjoy your last few days at work
IDC -Sounds like the last appointmetn if they are taking swabs, good luck. and I dont think 2 stone is much at all, must be water!
Daisy - enjoy your day and your mum being there, sounds lovely.
Duckford - Hope today is easy for you and not too tiring if you didnt get much sleep.
PC - enjoy your last child free days! hope you dont have a long wait
PopC - It is very exciting. I feel a bit like that too.
AFM - I had a very very hectic weekend, lots of late nights, but chilled relaxed days and lie ins, so it hasnt been too bad. We all slept until midday yesterday, even L, which is unheard of, but she really needed it and so did i! I am at work today for a rest :)

Morning All. Am I allowed in here yet? I am 27+2 today so I think that makes me third tri? I recognise most of the names from 2nd tri so will be nice to catch up with all you ladies! x
Margot – Enjoy your last day at work. Can’t believe you are so close to the end already! Eek
IDC – Hope midwife appointment goes well.
Daisy – Enjoy having a wee bit of time with mum helping out. Hopefully you will find some time to get your feet up for a little while!
Duckford – FX that baby has turned around!!
Porkchop – Keeping my FX it’s your turn soon lovely.
Popcorn – Sounds like you had a nice weekend. Yay for nice wriggly baby
PS – Glad you had a good few long lies over the weekend. Enjoy your restful work day haha
AFM – Just been plodding along since seen most of you in 2nd tri. We had a minor scare a few weeks ago with a little bit of spotting but all was well in the end.
For those of you who don’t know we are having a little girlie. She is a very wriggly little girlie and I am still, 27 weeks in, totally amazed by watching my belly move. I try and force H to stare at it all night like I do – but he gets bored after 5 minutes and I want to punch him haha.
MW appointment on Thursday afternoon, but other than that nothing much to report baby wise.
Cannot believe we are in the last bit already. 13 weeks to go, wooooo!!

Margot – hope today isn’t too bad. Just a matter of counting down the hours until the holidays can start and then not long until baby arrives.
IDC – how was the midwife? Hope it all went well and the weight gain stays under control.
Daisy – glad to hear you’re enjoying having your mum there, sounds like you are getting some rest.
Duckford – try and get some rest today. Fingers crossed that baby has turned for your appointment tomorrow.
Porkchop – hope baby doesn’t keep you waiting too long.
Popcorn – I totally understand the knowing about Kate being in labour making it more real for us too.
PoppySeeds – sleeping until midday, nice one!
Mrs Mack – welcome to 3rd tri, the weeks will be flying by soon.
AFM – had a lovely weekend with friends and family. Sunday, things became a bit more real, as BH were ramping up some more but I was getting back ache with them too. My brother was here so we rang his gf (a mw) just for a chat, but basically she said by the sounds of it – could be the early stages of labour. Which was exciting and scary at the same time. We’re not expecting anything to happen anytime soon, just a case of keeping an eye on them. Seem to have times in the day when it happens, then it all calms down for a good few hours.
