Hope you are all well and lots of baby out vibes to NottsLass, I am hoping to see you BA very soon.
AFM - I had an incredibly frustrating day yesterday - none of the parcels arrived, loks like they are being delivered today instead, just wish they had told me - grrrr. Also I was supposed to have a home visit for my 34 week check and discussion about my home birth with my midwife. They told me I would get a call in the morning to let me know when they would be coming. By 11:30 I had no call, so I called them, got no answer, so left a message. Someone finally called me back and to cut a long story short, ended up being told that they were too busy and I was not priority, so now have to go to a clinic this afternoon to do it all (they are now saying that they don't actually need to come to me at home, despite my midwife insisting when I last saw her that they needed to) - I think that is only happening today because I pushed them. I was furious - if I hadn't chased it, they would have just left me hanging and i would have never got a check this week at all - not happy (sorry that turned into a big rant). I really need to speak to them about it all, because of the potential feeding issues with the clecft lip/palate too, so it is all making me feel quite anxious.
Sorry to rant .... anyway, reflexology was lovely yesterday, and my pelvis felt lots better afterwards too, so I think it seems to be having a similar effect to accupuncture.
I have been wide awake for ages, but slept quite well ... hoping today is a better day!!
Hope you are all well - I will pop back later to catch up

Morning al! How very frustrating.. I hate it when deliveries don't arrive! I hope you sort that mw out today too!
Afm just a half day to work then it's the long weekend.. Looking forward to some relaxing time with h and my family. Hope to get nursery finished properly too! X

Alocin, how bloody annoying! Not a priority...cheeky biatch! I'd be fuming too! You don't sound over anxious, you sound like a mum to be who is needing things in place before the birth! Perfectly reasonable!
Bexy, ahh a long weekend sounds fab! Hope your half day goes quickly and you get the nursery finished!
AFM, just trying to work out if things are actually happening...this early labour is confusing! Had more bloody show and it definitely looks like plug stained with blood, nice! Enjoy your breakfasts! Had some contractions so just hoping they become regular. True and speedy labour vibes needed please! Scared! NL x

bexy - enjoy your long weekend - don't forget to post some pics of the nursery once you are done!!

Ooops two threads today! Here is WH's post:
Morning ladies. Hope everyone's well this morning and looking forward to the weekend! Baby out vibes to NL. Did anyone brave OBEM last night? Heartbreaking, poor poor couple.
Out early this morning to my last client meetings, then lunch with our creative agency. Hoping to meet my friend's newborn later on. All fine baby wise, very little to report really!
What do you have on this weekend? S has a party tomorrow and I need to do his cake and prepare his party games, sat is his party then Sunday his birthday. Can't believe my little scrap is now 4!. Monday we're doing a bunny hunt with friends.
Take care everyone
S born March 09 at 30+6
no 2 due May 13

And my reply!
Yep I watched OBEM, heartbreaking but glad I watched as I think seeing info about these things helps raise awareness. Such a brave couple.
AFM the pin lady def worked her magic as I slept without excruciating pain and can walk again. Honestly that woman can work miracles!! N has school this morning so we're just getting ready, then I'll drop him off and pop to a friends for a cuppa and feet up! This afternoon we need to go to town for a few birthday bits for my H who's birthday is also on Sunday.
WH, what have you got for S? Sounds like work is ramping down for you now!!
Baby out vibes to NL!

Alocin, sorry yesterday was so unproductive. Hope it all gets sorted today x
Bexy, what's left to do in the nursery?
NL, speedy labour vibes a plenty! Xx
28/03/2013 at 07:59
Notts! Baby out vibes!!! About to eat my muesli!
Wh.. Sounds like a busy day... Didn't watch obem but I have it on the planner! Will
No doubt watch tonight while h is out! Will have tissues ready...
Hep.. Well I decided (as us women do) that I hated the wall stickers we had used so I have now taken them down and we are wallpapering one wall.... Will make sure you all get a look once the bunting is done and up! Glad the pin lady worked get magic!
28/03/2013 at 09:09
Yay, it's the last day of the working week!
Al - sorry to hear that you had such a fustrating day yesterday. Hope that everything gets sorted today and your parcels arrive and the MW is helpful this afternoon
Bexy - Looking forward to seeing a flash of the nursery when finished. Enjoy your relaxing long weekend with H
NL - Loads of baby out vibes coming your way! Each time I log on I hope to see either confirmation that something is happening or a BA!
WH - I only watched the first half of OBEM before the phone rang and have recorded the rest to watch this evening. From what I have heard I will need tissues at the ready
Hep - glad that pin lady worked. I may have to look into doing the same as for the last few nights have had terrible pain all up my leg and in my lower back
AFM - Another horrible nights sleep - am sooooo looking forward to the long weekend and hopefully some lie-ins. Had my first real craving this morning as woke up and NEEDED a smoothie. Not just any smootie but a freshly made one. Was at the point of telling H to go out and get me one before he left for work but instead threw lots of fruit into a blender and made my own. I now have a craving for another one! Oh well at least it is healthy!
Looking forward to a fairly chilled weekend of sorting out the house - we need to paint upstairs to freshen it up including baby's room and I also want to steam clean the carpets with my PIL's vax. Seeing some friends including another couple who have just announced that they are pregnant and on Monday we are off to the ideal home show as managed to get some complimentary tickets.

After contractions every 30-40 mins through the night they've gone and flipping stopped! Getting backache now which is good though and am walking to mw as H is with me so I feel more confident.
Sorry for no more personals, just had another contraction...ouch! Was all in the front though, not like a wrap around pain like last night. I really appreciate the vibes thank you xxx
28/03/2013 at 09:30
WH - H and I sobbed our way through OBEM last night - made me realise that although our little one is going to have some challenges in life, we are actually quite lucky ... definitely counting our blessings today
Hep - glad your pin lady worked her magic - Have a lovely weekend
Ferbs - sending you lots of sleeping soundly vibes for tonight. Craving smoothies sounds very healthy - I seem to have a thing for oranges and satsumas at the moment!!
NL - sending lots more vibes ... hopefully not long to go now!!
AFM - I have confirmation that the parcels will be delivered between 10:32 and 11:32 - so precise, so today is looking better than yesterday already!!
28/03/2013 at 10:07
Morning all!!! Speedy vibes to NL!!! Exciting! Don't be scared you can do it xxx
28/03/2013 at 15:27
Ferbs, that's a healthy craving which is good!!
NL, I predict baby will be here very soon!!
Al, did the parcels arrive?!
GB, how you doing? x
Just home from a busy morning here! N was a star again at preschool while I went to a friend's for a cuppa, then I took N to town for an end of term treat lunch and got him a little pressie. Plus had to get some very belated Christmas gifts for people we're seeing tomorrow(!!) Am exhausted now so we are on the sofa watching Pooh and relaxing!
Finished my knitted blanket lady night but still need to crochet a border on it so will do that tonight.
Hope all are having a good day x
28/03/2013 at 16:30
Oh NL I can not wait for your BA and really hope things will ramp up nice and quickly for you xx
28/03/2013 at 18:13
Today was definitely a better day - all the deliveries arrived and I had the best appointment with my midwife for my 34 weeks check and discussion about my home birth. I was with her for about and hour and she was so supportive of the home birth and discussed everything with me. She was also great when we were talking about the babies potential feeding issues and getting a plan put in place - I am now a happy momma!!
28/03/2013 at 18:52
Arghhhhhhh! Still nothing! Stop stopping! Getting very frustrated :-(
28/03/2013 at 18:53
Hope everyone's had a good day. Thanks hep for copying my post, I popped on earlier and couldn't find te one I started!
Long day today as lunch meeting went on a bit but I was chuffed that I came up with a whole new concept which is going to be used! Even more smug because my cover has come from a marketing background and I haven't had any experience really! Hopefully will bode well for my hopes to move over to a nice office based marketing role.
Baby was doing some crazy moves in one of my calls this morning, very distracting! Popped to see friend's newborn this evening, very cute. Can't believe in having one in the next 6 weeks!
Right, come on baby NL! I want a BA in the next 24 hours!
28/03/2013 at 18:55
Oh No NL - come on baby NL, stop keeping your Mummy and Daddy waiting it's time to put in an appearance!
WH - glad you had a good day - sounds like you are going out on a high at work!!
