Morning ladies. An early one from me. Can tell this low GI diet has been going on a while, I was actually dreaming about white toast!
Hope you all had a good weekend. Baby out vibes to all who want them and hoe munchkin's ok.
Well today's the day! Off for induction in a bit. Bag packed and repacked. Not nervous about the actual labour bit really but terrified about pushing this giant out! At least as I'm already a bit dilated hopefully they can just break my waters without a pessary which should speed things up a bit. My guess is about 11lbs. Any guesses ladies?!
I'll probably be back for personals later unless things go very quickly. Have a good day everybody

Good luck WH! Hope all goes well - try and deliver before I get my ferry to France at 4pm so I don't miss your BA lol ;-) I'm guessing 10lb 6. I'll have CK on texting duties to let me know when you've had him :-)
All good here, had a lovely weekend at the in laws, A turned 4 yesterday and had a great birthday. Disney tomorrow which we're all excited about :-)
Hi to all that follow and baby out vibes to those who need them. Will catch up with you all when I'm back!
13/05/2013 at 07:12
Good luck WH, I bet you never thought you'd be heading in for induction. I'm going for 8lb 10oz, just to be a bit random k-)
Ally, have s lovely holiday. We just got back and it was so lovely to have that time out as a family of 3 where we could prioritise zoe before her life changes for ever.
13/05/2013 at 07:42
Good luck WH. You will be fine! Hopefully this time tomorrow you will be having newborn cuddles xx
13/05/2013 at 07:59
WH - best of luck for today! Looking forward to reading your BA. Hope that all goes well. My guess for weight would be around the 10lb 7 - 11lb mark!
Ally - have a great holiday!
JB - welcome back, glad you had a good time away
MM - hi lovely! Hope that you are well
AFM - first day of ML today! Planning on going to aqua class this morning before popping to mothercare to get the rest off hopsital bag stuff. Made a good start over the weekend and just need one or two last bits. Then need to wait in for the Virgin man so may try and make a start on washing baby clothes etc. H's cousin was induced yesterday so am impatiently waiting for baby news!
Have a good day everyone and again, loads of luck WH x
13/05/2013 at 08:31
WH, good luck, can't wait to hear your BA! I bet baby s no where near as big as they are saying. I'm going for 9lb 2oz
Ally, have a great holiday
Jb, welcome back
MM, hope you're ok? Off to read your other thread in a mo.
Ferbs, yay welcome to mat leave!
Afm, not much to report. Fed up and tired but on the final straight now. Only one more weekend now before CS date! I have very little plans for this week - it's too much like hard work going anywhere. Have to take A to his 6 monthly eye appt at the hospital on weds - he was born with a cataract in one eye that needs checking every 6 months to mae sure it's not effecting his eyesight which so far it isn't thankfully but we have to keep going until he is 8. Then mw Thursday. Aside from that it'll just be school run and pottering at home I think.
Have a good day everyone x
13/05/2013 at 08:35
Good luck WH! Hopefully it'll be quick and we wont see you back later! Looking forward to the BA!!
Ferbs - hope you get everything you need. Dont fill your day up too much, there's always tomorrow!
AFM - I think have the laziest baby ever, which coupled with a anterior placenta makes me worry all the time! It's always been quiet, so I dont worry too much, but sometimes I just wish I had a really wiggly one! First antenatal class this afternoon, no more monday afternoons at work for me as the last one is my last week at work. No physio referrel through yet, will have been a week tomorrow so I'll be chasing!
13/05/2013 at 08:39
Hope you've all had a good weekend
WH - Good luck, hopefully we'll be reading your BA very soon. I guess 9lb 10oz
Ally - Have a lovely holiday
JB - Glad you had a nice holiday
MM - Hi!
Ferbs - Lucky you being on the first day of your mat leave! Have a lovely day!
Morph - Morning, hope you have a nice relaxing day!
PC - I've just realised your due at the same time as me. Is your due date the 17th July? Hope your antenatal class goes well!
AFM - Went to get a few bits for my hospital bag this weekend and bought the most comfortable pj's from primark! I tried them last night and they're lovely, so soft and stretchy! May have to invest in a few more pairs! Had my first experience of swollen feel last night, I think that was from all the shopping I did yesterday as they've gone down this morning. Off to aquanatal tonight, just hoping my swimming costume still fits as I've not been in a few weeks and it was getting a bit snug!
Have a good day everyone
13/05/2013 at 08:55
WH - Good luck for today! This must be a whole new experience compared to last time! Hopefully will be reading your BA very soon.
Ally - Have a fab holiday!
JB - Glad you had a good time and quality time as a family of 3 before it all changes.
MM - Hiya!
Ferbs - ML - Lucky you! Enjoy these last few weeks of relaxation.
Morph - Bet you are getting excited about meeting LO now! Hope all goes well at the hospital this week with LO.
PC - Babies can't win can they, we either worry that we don't feel them enough, or like me, we moan when they are constantly moving it gets really uncomfortable!
TT - yeah for Primark PJs - I dug mine out from last time and they are so comfy!
AFM - well 34 weeks done, 6 to go, but really counting down the 4 weeks left at work!! We had a scan on Saturday which was great, as it was one we paid for they spent loads of time and we were able to take M and my stepson. M has been to the midwife with me so couldn't understand why she couldn't hear anything like she usually does! Stepson found it fascinating (he's 9 so able to understand a more). To H's relief they did also confirm that this one is a boy, I think H was trying not to get to excited since the 20 week scan as he didn't quite believe it was a boy, but we now have photgraphic evidence! (although looking at the picture it could be anything!!)
Hi to those that follow! xx
13/05/2013 at 09:03
TT - you're a week ahead of me, I'm 24th July.
MrsH - lovely that you can involve the little ones!
13/05/2013 at 09:24
Morning ladies! Just a quick one just now. Good Luck to WH today!! Hope everything goes well and we'll be seeing your BA soon!!
I'm not feeling too good at the moment, but i'll try and get on later for personals. Right now i'm going to get something to eat for baby and then back to bed. :-(
13/05/2013 at 10:07
WH, I'm guessing 10lbs 5oz xx Good luck babes. Looking forward to hearing from you later xxx
Ally, A has a good birthday ;) Hope you enjoy Disney!
Hi JB. How was Greece? Hope you didn't mind me texting you. Glad you got the milk machine!
Ferbs, enjoy mothercare. I noticed in my hospital notes yesterday that they are very specific about what you can take in with you initially when you have a section. Makes packing a bit easier!
Not long now Morph! Hope A gets on ok at eye check.
PC, I have AP too and it took forever to feel reliable movements.
TT, enjoy aqua. Hope the suit fits!!
MrsH. Glad the private scan was a lovely experience for you all.
RKB, hope you're feeling better soon.
AFM, had a fab birthday weekend especially my day out with Mum yesterday. She bought me some shirts that I can see being great post baby. They are so going in my hospital bag.
WH has just scared the life out of me with a text saying she's just seen my consultant, who will be doing my section and that this will be me in four weeks. Eeeeek!!!!
Off to a friends in a bit. She is having M whilst I have baby so thought it would be good to see her before the big day. Also got some vouchers so might pop to shops later.

13/05/2013 at 11:56
Morning all! Working from home today so get to join in :)
WH good luck with the induction, look forward to hearing your BA!
Ally, have an ace time at Disney (will you be OK with all that walking - I was broken after a day at Paignton Zoo lol!)
Ferbs wooohoooo for mat leave! I still have 7 weeks and it can't come quickly enough (although only 12 days actually in the office, hurrah!)
Morph wow, you really are on the home straight now, yay :)
porkchop what's your physio for? SPD? Hope they see you soon. Enjoy your ante natal class :)
RKB hope you're feeling better after a rest.
Rusty happy belated birthday. Hope you find something nice to spend your vouchers on.
bexy hope you have a nice relaxing day.
AFM - alongside chest infection I had a call from docs today to say blood test results are showing I'm anaemic, so onto iron supplements for me. No wonder I've been feeling so rubbish! Working from home this week which will help me to rest up a bit. Am exhausted and could do with a week to just chill!
It's finally starting to sink in that we're going to be having another baby, and that I need to do labour again! I've booked a session with a hypnobirthing practitioner because after G's birth think it will help to have some nice positive affirmations to help me relax about it all, so looking forward to that.
Had a friend's wedding on the weekend and have something every weekend now almost until maternity leave, with various weddings, parties and a week away.

Dinx - sciatica apparently. Surprised you've missed it, been moaning about it all week on fb!!
13/05/2013 at 12:35
WH - Hope that by now you are well on your way - good luck and FX we see your BA shortly! I also don't think baby will be as big as they say, so will go for 9lb 9oz!
Ally - have a brilliant time at Disney! Hope you really enjoy :)
JB - Hi, hope you are ok and glad you had a lovely holiday.
Ferbs - Welcome to mat leave! Enjoy washing the baby clothes and hope you hear from your cousin soon.
Morph - Glad you are on the home straight now, can understand why you are so fed up. Hope your last week is as relaxing as possible!
PC - That must be worrying, I'm sure I would be the same. Hopefully it means baby will be chilled out when it arrives though!
TT - I also invested in some primark goodies - best few quid I've spent! Hope you manage to squeeze into your costume later! Enjoy aqua natal - I'll miss it when I eventually pop!
Mrs H - Great news on the boy confirmation! And how sweet about your LOs :)
RKB - Feel better soon.
Rusty - Glad you had a lovely birthday. Naughty WH making it all seem a bit too real! Have a nice time at your friends and happy shopping with your vouchers - baby stuff or you stuff?
Bexy - Hope you get some chilling done today. I find events, like weddings take ages to recover from when pregnant!
Dinx - Hopefully you will feel better and have more energy once you go on the iron tablets, seems to be really common around your point for the levels to dip. Think you should maybe eat a few more burgers! Hope the hypnobirthing session goes well.
AFM - Had a non-sweep this morning unfortunately. She said my cervix was softening and she could feel baby's head which is good, but it was slightly too high for her to be able to sweep. So now it's either labour in the next 10 days or be induced on 23rd. Am hoping for the first, but have adjusted our expectations from this morning as things don't seem imminent! It's weird that I won't see anyone again though until I'm induced or go into labour. So either way I guess we're having a baby fairly soon!
Have done lots of jobs this morning round the house, but now that the sweep wasn't successful, I've relaxed and plan to mainly chill out and potter today!
Hope WH is doing ok!
Lamby, 39+1 x

Just a quick update. Had all my obs done this morning and examination. They'll definitely be able to break my waters as I'm a good 2cm dilated but I've been sent home until they have more staff on. Hopefully that'll be this afternoon!
13/05/2013 at 12:53
Thanks for update WH. Hope things get cracking this afternoon x
13/05/2013 at 13:01
Ah how annoying. Hopefully they'll get of started this afternoon. Great that things sound favourable though x
13/05/2013 at 13:04
Just popping on to say good luck to WH!! I hope they can get things started this afternoon for you. Frustrating that they're short staffed but great news they'll be able to break your waters!
All good here, just busy at work. Will be back tomorrow with a proper post!
