Baby out vibes for Ixia and anyone else that needs them.
I've been awake since 5am and I've finally given up on the idea that I might get back to sleep. My brain is churning with all things baby related so I've decided to just get up and watch some tv with the hope I might get a nap later on today.
I seen the mw yesterday who said that Baby CA is 4/5th engaged. I don't feel it and don't think I look like my bump has dropped so I was surprised at that. Baby also seems to be lying side on, possibly slightly posterior so I'm hoping they will make a turn soon. They've pretty much been lying this way for about 20 weeks though so I'm not sure of the chances of turning now!!!
I'm planning a final check of the hospital bags today and I'm not too sure what else.
Anyways, happy Thursday everyone xxx

I too am wide awake, I'm too frigging hot!! Had mw appt yesterday too and am 3/5 engaged apparently. I get paranoid now with every single twinge although that didn't seem to stop me painting the nursery yesterday! Got the crib bedding washed, that's being picked up from a friend tomorrow. Hoping it starts to cool down after today, expected to hit 26/27 degrees here... Which ordinarily I would love and would be found sunning myself in the garden but not this year!!

Morning CA! Thank you for the baby out vibes. Great news for you that baby is so far engaged. Hope they turn if they can! Boo to being awake so early, hope you manage to rest later.
Hi to those who follow and apologies if I missed anyone, posting on my phone takes ages!

Morning Ixia, I have the same problem on my phone!!
Have also now realised after about twenty sneezes that the pollen count is also stupidly high today. Yay, itchy ears, nose and throat for me today!!

CA - sorry you couldn't sleep, what sort of baby things are you thinking about? Just general worries? Hope baby turns soon. Are you fed up yet or not fussed if you go over?
Kapowski - gosh that is hot! Where abouts are you again? It's going to rain here today so think it'll be cooler. No washing for me today!
Ixia - baby out vibes! And happy due date!
AFM - my first NCT went really well last night. I really enjoyed it and there is a really lovely bunch of couples. 4 of us in total- there should be a fifth but they rang last minute to say her waters had broken so not sure whether we'll see them! The teacher was very anti-epidural and pro birthing centres which I thought was a bit bad, as surely its all about choice not trying to persuade us one way or the other. I had a good laugh anyway and think we'll get on with the couples well :) woke up this morning and my hips are killing me. I think I must have slept funny :( so a chilled day is on the table for me today!

CA - 4/5 wow!! Hope baby surprises you and turns into the right position. That might be all you're waiting for! A nap sounds good. Do you think you have everything ready?
K - how's the nursery coming along? What colour is it you went for? God I hope it doesn't reach 27 degrees for you. That sounds awful. It looks very grey and cloudy here which is fab! Yay for crib bedding. You sound very sorted. and yay to 3/5 how exciting! Lots of babies coming soon.
Ixia - happy due date! Many baby out vibes to you. Hope you're not waiting too much longer.
AFM - shattered. H has been doing overtime and as he takes me in this has meant v early starts. I'm taking a half day Friday though so plan on sleeping the afternoon away then! Got our floordrobe sorted into chest of drawers and the actual wardrobe last night which means we finally have floor space and the crib set up. I've also pretty much packed my hospital bags bar drinks, snacks and anything I need to just grab on the way like chargers. It's all starting to come together ahhh!!
Hi to those that follow xx
Hi Browny - make sure you chill out today, glad you enjoyed your NCT class! I'm on the London/Herts/Essex border, my bedroom is already 22 degrees!!

Browny - cross posted! Gald NCT went well. Really good news that you get on with the other couples too. Hopefully the hip pain will ease today if you.plan on a chilled one?
Also I don't know if this will work but I meant to flash the nursery a while ago. Hang on! I think that worked? Not the best pic in the world mind but I have to say I love the orange!!
03/07/2014 at 08:22
Hi Jonesy! Sounds like you are getting sorted and I LOVE the orange!! Hope you get some sleep tomorrow. Ours is just neutral at the moment, I plan to pick colours out of the bedding and accent around the room, somehow!!
03/07/2014 at 08:58
K that sounds easy enough to do. You can get some lovely bright bedding and it will be easier once you know what you've got! I've found bright gender neutral stuff quite hard to track down so a lot of the stuff we've bought looks quite boyish (so says H).
You can get some lovely bunting and pictures and stuff though. As I recall you're quite crafty no? I'm knitting a blanket, that's the extent of my craftiness!

Right, now on the laptop so I can post properly!
K - sounds like you got a lot done yesterday! Hope you don't get too hot and uncomfortable today.
Browny - glad you enjoyed your NCT class. Enjoyed your chilled day and I hope your hips stop hurting.
Jonesy - love the orange! Hope you manage to get some rest tomorrow.
Thank you for the baby out vibes ladies - I'll take all I can get! I haven't posted on here the last 2 days because I've been hot, tired and hormonal and don't want to drag the thread down! Just going to do some laundry and a bit of light housework today.

I've got some of the Classic Winnie the Pooh stuff which although mostly white and beige, also has reds, oranges, greens, blues etc. in it. I was going to get white furniture and then some paint samples and paint some picture frames etc. looking for some wall decals too.

Ixia - hope baby shows themselves soon! X

Jonesy - you sound organised! Love the bright nursery!
Kapowski - gosh hope the weather isn't too bad today! We are doing the same as you - neutral colour and then will add wall stickers/bunting/pictures when they arrive so its more gender specific.
Ixia - don't worry about bringing the thread down - we are all here if you need a moan! Hopefully not too much longer for you to wait. Get bouncing on that ball and drinking raspberry leaf tea!!
I've been resting all morning and now its just my left hip that hurts - better than both I suppose! I've downloaded Juju Sudin's birth skills onto my ipad so have been reading some of that to occupy me.
