WW all thr baby out vibes are still being sent your way, I hope we get to hear your ba really soon .
I'm awake way too early so thought I'd start the thread. No idea why I woke up but I can't get back to sleep, my acid has kicked off so I've taken a ranitidine.
In better news I'm going out for lunch with a friend today and then meeting another friend for coffee later on, where they may be cake involved!

WW - Tons of baby get a wriggle on vibes heading your way.
Imp - sorry your acid is playing up this morning. Enjoy your lunch and your cake....sounds like a good day to me :-)
AFM - The cankles were back in force yesterday ...v uncomfy! Checked the list and v little left to buy for baby now as we gave all the main bits from O. Just need to finish the hospital bag when I get paid tomorrow and then I'll get a new cotbed mattress next month :-) We've not a lot planned for today...think O is suffering with hay fever as he has been snuffly but he doesn't appear to have a cold, bless him!
Hi to all who follow...will try and pop back (2 year old phone snatching dependant!)

Imp - sorry your acid has kicked off. Have a lovely day seeing your friends.
Coco - hope O feels less snuffly soon and your cankles don't continue to be so uncomfortable.
AFM - I seem to have reached 37 weeks - eeek! Had 2 busy days with H, which included our couples workshop and seeing the MW. Not going to do much today as I didn't sleep well last night with the heat, peeing and heartburn keeping me awake! Just need to get my hospital bag packed up and have a few more bits to buy and I'll do that over the next few days.
Hi to those who follow - lols of baby out vibes to WW!

Happy term day Ixia - it won't be long now and I'll be doing your BA :-) :-) Hope you get a better sleep tonight....I agree that the heat really isn't helping!

Hello ladies. Is early waking normal for 3rd tri? My body seems to be awake by 5.30am the last week or so and it's a nightmare trying to get back to sleep!
Imp - Enjoy your lunch and afternoon with friends. Cake sounds good!
Coco - Hope those naughty cankles behave themselves today and you can rest as much as possible today x
Ixia - Happy full term! Definatley need to get that hospital bag packed now!!
WW - Hope baby doesn't keep you waiting too much longer
AFM - I've got my 28 week appointment with the consultant this morning where they should be giving me the outcome of the MDT (multi-discplinary team) meeting they had about me with my surgeon & physio. We are expecting them to tell me how late they'll let me go and what the plan of action is for monitoring me in later pregnancy. Or at least that's what I'm hoping... knowing my luck it still hasn't happened and he'll be all 'oh I didn't get round to it - come back in so and so weeks'. I think I'll cry if he does as I'm fed up going to see him and not getting anywhere!!

Imp - boo to acid. I'm getting it today as I forgot my pills this morning. I didn't realise what a marvellous job they were doing til now. Lunch and cake for afters sounds awesome! I hope my mat leave includes many a lunch out haha. Hope you get a better night tonight with a bit of a lie in. I bet all through work you were desparate to stay in bed and now you're off you get up earlier than before!
Coco - how exciting that everything is all sorted! Or pretty much. I checked through my hospital bag list and it's only things like snacks, camera, chargers etc left to sort. Scary. Hope the cankles aren't as bad today although it's glorious sunshine here so maybe no luck with that?
Ixia - happy full term!! Sorry you had a crappy nights sleep, lots of rest today then. Have you got much left to get for the hospital bag?
PS - really hope your consultant appointment goes well. I feel your pain. I have been waiting for mine to osrt out what needs doing regarding my heart since Feb and im seeing him again at 34 weeks so really need to have got the info by then. Really hope you come back today with a plan! If not definintely cry, that might even speed things up! Good luck
AFM - had a beautiful nights sleep after a couple hours packing. No wee breaks or nothing! Should be finished with the house tonight and then we should be all set for move day on Monday! We are away for the weekend so it'll be nice to do absolutely nothing after 2 weeks of constant activity. Baby wise, nothing new to report really. I think we're both quite happy as we are
Hi to those that follow and loads and loads of vibes to WW - Come on baby!!!
12/06/2014 at 10:08
Coco Booo to cankles. I'm suffering too but generally they're worse at the end of the day. Yay to nearly having everything for baby coco, you're scaring me a bit with the hospital bag. I've still not finished mine- I've only just started it!
Ixia happy full term day! :) take it nice and easy today lovely.
PS I hope the cons gives you the answers you want and need.
Jonesy yay to a good nights sleep! It makes such a difference, especially when you're at work still. Eeek to move day on Monday, what are you doing this weekend?
12/06/2014 at 10:09
Look how tiny they all are!!!! :)
12/06/2014 at 11:09
Imp that washing is the cutest!! Also I love your shed! So pretty. I loved seeing all the little babygrows on the dryer. Got me all excited. I also ironed all the baby hospital bag stuff which I am sure I will never do again haha.
We are visiting MIL this weekend. She's giving us all her decorating stuff so H can get cracking on the house. One of his mates is having a bbq on saturday and then we will see his daughter on fathers day. Should be nice one!

Imp - lovely washing line! Too cute. You just have to hope you don't have a massive baby now lol my sister brought a lot of stuff in a small size as she thought she was having a small baby and she came out at 8lb7oz. Everyone says "don't buy a lot until the baby gets here as you don't know what size they'll be" but that's like telling someone not to test when AF is a week late, it's impossible.
Coco - this heat is killing my feet. Cankle fever majorly this end too so I feel for you as I can at least rest mine, you have a 2 year old to run around after.
Ixia - happy term day! Are you next in line after me for due dates? To be fair, the way I'm feeling, you'll probably have a baby before me.
PS - hope your appt goes well today, I've got my fingers crossed you get answers, and good ones.
Jonesy - yay for a good nights sleep - I managed to sleep through till 5am before needing the loo and I was cheering inside haha
AFM - no baby and no signs of her, get out, Get Out, GET OUT!!!!!!! I know I only have until Saturday until I get induced but I don't care, I want her out today, I want her out a week ago. I'm over pregnancy now, I just want to meet her. I've stopped getting contractions at night so I'm even less likely to have her randomly now which I think is making it more miserable for me. very glum and moody lol sorry all. My sister went 10 days over and on day 9 she put on her breast pump and that was it, an hour later in the hospital. I'm tempted to put it on but because I had the sweep and lost the plug I just thought it would progress normally but I know Wispa was using her pump a couple times a day and she's a mummy already! I'm a little scared to put it on incase it does work though lol, it's crazy.

Not going well so far. Was meant to see him at 10.40am but he is apparently running 60/90 mins late. Argh!
12/06/2014 at 12:18
Imp - hope you have a lovely day. I'm very jealous of the cake :) your washing line looks so cute!
Coco - poor O with hayfever - it sucks! You sound very organised with your baby stuff :)
Ixia - happy term day!
PS - let us know how you got on at the appointment. Hope they made some decisions to put your mind at rest.
Jonesy - well done you on being so organised with the move! Have a lovely relaxing weekend.
WW - baby out vibes! Lol at being scared it might work. Do it! Have you tried raspberry leaf tea?
AFM - H loved his anniversary gift and we had a lovely evening out. Meal was nice then came back and watched OBEM on C4+1 lol. Getting my new washing machine delivered this aft so I'm house bound but can't wait until its here so I can do some washing! Been living like a scruff for ages! My mums been doing the essentials for us but its not the same.
Got the ILs staying tomorrow night for the first time - usually it was my family staying but as we've moved its going to be the other way around! It'll be weird - I hope his dad's not his usual demanding self or he'll be told where to go!
World Cup starts tonight! :)

Hi Everyone - hope you are all ok!
Imp - Hope you are enjoying cake as promised :) Loving your washing line!
Coco - You sound prepared! Well Done
Ixia - 37 weeks and counting!! Not long to go!
PS - I'm starting to also think early waking is a symptom of 3rd Tri - horrible!! Hope you did get your appointment and good news
Jonesy - You are busy!!!!! Good luck with the move and enjoy a well earned weekend away!
WW - So sorry you are still pregnant - I am sending a LOT of baby out vibes to you. Stay strong + posiive. Worst case scenario - 2 more days :)
Browny - Anniversary sopunds gorg!
AFM - very very tired in the heat here (30 +) and not sleeping well at all. Am fine in the mornings at work but come 2-3pm I really am sufering - I keep getting quite noticeable BH's which are freaking me out a bit. Anyway - only 4 week s left in work
Talk later - xx
12/06/2014 at 17:41
PS - hope everything went well with the consultant.
Jonesy - yay to having a great nights sleep! Hope you have a lovely weekend.
Imp - I love that photo!
WW - sorry the contractions at night have stopped. Get out baby!!
Browny - glad you had a lovely anniversary.
Sue - sorry you are suffering with the heat :(
AFM - my hospital bag is packed and I've made some more things for the freezer. Now trying to get comfortable on the sofa to put my puffy feet up!

Hello again ladies. Had to go into work after my appointment so couldn't get back to reply.
Jonesy - Pleased to hear you had such a great sleep. Good luck for Monday!
Imp - Such a cute picture!!
WW - Must be so frustrating for you. I say crack that breast pump out and give it a go... can't do any harm x
Browny - Hope the washing machine arrived as expected and you made the most of a day being trapped in the house
Sue - Get yourself a nice ceiling fan and I hope it helps with the heat!
Ixia - Glad you've got the bag sorted and hope you managed to get some rest this afternoon
AFM - Saw the consultant (eventually!) I've been told a c-section is my only option and that they won't consider me trying any alternatives. I'm quite pleased the option has been taken out of my hands as I would of constantly questioned my choice if it'd been up to me. Really surreal to know that by a certain date my baby will definately be here. If anything happens before the date they've given me then I have to call them immediately and go straight in and they'll do it ASAP but in theory if everything goes well we now know when Paperclip will be here. Feels crazy!
12/06/2014 at 20:06
Sue - I don't envy you in that kind of heat! Not long left at work now!
Ixia - hope your feet are less puffy! Well done on sorting your hospital bag in a day!
PS - great that you have a plan in place now :)
Washing machine arrived and H has just fitted it. Its on the first cycle now - can't wait to do a load! Sad arent I?! Had a bit of a down afternoon so I took myself off to bed once the washer arrived and had an hour or so nap. Starting to feel a bit better now which is good :)
