Huge congratulations to Hepburn .... and lots of baby out vibes to BW and VE ... I look forward to seeing your BA's very soon ..... are we on for a Hatrick today ladies????
I am on the train on my way to London - last day in London and last day at work today - hoooraaaayyyy!!!
NCT breastfeeding class last night, which was really good, and covered things like expressing too, so will be useful even if the baby has cleft palate and can't breastfeed normally. Looking forward to a day wafting around the office (a little bit of work to finish off, but not too much!!) and going out for lunch ... hopefully it won't be too taxing!!
Have a good day everyone

Hope BW and VE have news soon!
We are off to Legoland this morning.
Had a really high post dinner blood reading last night. Oops! It had been around 4 all day though. Seeing MW on Friday so hope she won't tell me off too much!
Glad you enjoyed NCT Alocin. Have a good day xx

Massive congratulations to Hep on the arrival of her pink bundle. Come on BW and VE!
Hi Al. Enjoy your last day!! And the sun is shining for you!! Glad the class was good.
AFM - Didnt sleep well last night so feeling very tired. G is at childminder today again so going to have a long soak then meeting a friend for a cuppa. Saw the midwife yesterday. All ok and measuring spot on. Baby has turned slightly from back to back but still a bit more work to do! BP was all ok with the swollen feet so i am obviously just overdoing it a bit!! Just pottering this afternoon getting odds and ends at home sorted.
Hope everyone has a good day.
Enjoy Legoland Rusty and hope your high reading was just a blip xx

It was post takeaway. We were up working until midnight. I was not cooking!!!
Hope your feet are ok MM. They look ouchy!
Al... It's here at last your last day! Enjoy it...
Rusty.. Hope the high reading was a one off!
Maisie.. Have a nice relaxing soak and a good day...
Huge congrats to hep! Who is next I wonder!
Afm.. Real nappy week has turned me into an addict.. I now have a nice stash on order and feel really confident about using them! Laying here thinking I really should get up! Work is getting such a drag now! The end is in sight tho!

Morning ladies! Fabulous news for Hep, I will forgive her for queue jumping as we were only two days apart!!
Alocin - glad the class proved worthwhile. Enjoy your last day at work, it is a fabulous feeling!
Rusty - Legoland sounds brave! At least schools are back so it won't be too busy, have a lovely day. I took my much younger sister there years ago and she loved it.
Re readings, a one off high is surely ok, if you are keeping it down most of the day.
MM - I hope you get some more rest today, get bouncing on that ball. I found best thing to turn I was planting potatoes on my hands and knees!!
BB - the end is in sight workwise, then you can spend your time washing and hanging out all your new purchases!
AFM - rubbish sweep yesterday, MU performed and nada!! Am a bit sore but think that is just pressure from the baby rather than breaking news. This baby is way too comfy! Taking I to free play today then my Dad is round this afternoon so plan to get some stuff done.
Baby out vibes to all who need them including me!

VE, Nala and Gingey Wife are going to be there too so hopefully M can go on some rides. Not sure I'd face it alone at the moment!
18/04/2013 at 08:00
Ah that sounds like a plan, I hope you have the same weather we have in sunny Essex today.
18/04/2013 at 08:20
Al- happy last day at work! Sounds like you have a nice gentle day planned. Hope they spoil you
Rusty- god, all those hills to walk up at LL! Braver than me!
Mm- good that baby is on the turn. Sometimes they turn in labour so you could well be ok
BB- when do you finish? In way too lazy for cloth I'm afraid but good on anyone who isn't as they do look cute!
VE- sorry the sweep wasn't successful. Lets hope you're not far behind Hep now.
AFM- not much on today really. Unfortunately got a mammoth data analysis job to so that isn't coming in til tomorrow morning (my last day!) which is annoying! Felt really sick all day yesterday and hungry. Just managed to stop myself puking over my laptop at work! Ok today so far though. Got a quick visit to a local client to drop stuff off then at home for rest of day. Still boiling at night. I keep waking up on my back. Sure you're not meant to sleep on your back but if I wedge myself up with pillows I'll be even hotter!
Have a good day all and look forward to some more BAs!

Firstly, huge congrats to Hep!! Lots of baby out vibes for BW and VE - come on babies!
Al - Bet you are so happy for last day in London! Hope that it goes well and it's not too taxing! Pleased to hear that breastfeeding class went well and you gained a lot from it
Rusty - Have a great time at Legoland!
MM - Hope you enjoy your soak and catching up with your friend. Good idea to take it easy, although I am one to talk as I always seem to be on the go!
Bexy - not long to go at all until your finish! Like i've said before, I really admire you for using cloth, I am far too lazy when it comes to washing!
VE - sorry to hear that the sweep was not successful. Hope that something happens soon - lots of baby out vibes!
WH - bet you are very excited about finishing tomorrow although how annoying about the large job. At least you can rejoice in it being the last big one before ML! I am also finding myself waking up on my back at night with the covers thrown over. Can't wait until I can sleep on my front again!
AFM - Last day in the office for the week today so am very happy and looking forward to a long weekend. Have felt exhausted this week. After today I only have 4 weeks left, 2 of which will be with my cover for a transition period. Managed to sleep really well last night which is a first for a long while. Hope that the same will happen this evening after my yoga class. Baby wise, baby is still wriggling away quite happily!
Have a good day all x

Anyone heard from GButterfly? She's not been on in a while. Hope that all is ok x
18/04/2013 at 09:22
She's on FB. All is ok at the moment. I think she has another 2 weeks now before it looks like they'll deliver but she's being monitored twice a week.

Hi all! Thrilled to see Hep's BA and wishing speedy happenings for BW & VE.
Al- Glad it's your last day finally and that your NCT class was helpful.
Rusty- Enjoy Legoland, should be fun. FX for decent weather for you.
MM- That's good that baby has shifted a bit. I know your worry, as mine keeps flipping about at this late stage and yesterday she was more sunny-side up. MW said that 80% turn in time though.
Bexy- Loving RNW too, great competitions and offers around.
VE- Baby out vibes! Sorry all the eviction efforts have been fruitless so far.
WH- Hope you feel OK for the rest of the day. Think I read that it's alright if you wake to find you're on your back, as long as you turn over when you realise?
Ferbs- Hurrah for a long weekend and sleeping better. Good that baby is busy doing yoga too!
AFM- 39+6 today. All OK when I saw the MW yesterday and she said she can do a sweep when I see her next week if baby's still in situ. I got an annual pass to the local arboretum for my birthday and managed a long but slow walk round for about an hour last weekend, so may repeat it this weekend to try and get things moving! Pineapple is waiting in the fruit bowl and I'm ball bouncing enthusiastically. Spare baby out vibes appreciated!
Have a good day :-)
18/04/2013 at 09:41
Thanks for updating me WH. Was thinking of her x
Gopher - lots of baby out vibes to you also! Hope that all the walking, pineapple and ball bouncing helps!
