I never did get round to personals yesterday.. apols!
Twink - good luck at the mw today, lots of spinny baby vibes
JT- Hope you had a productive day. I hate painting woodwork, so tedious!
Popcorn - how did the chat with your boss go?
M - soo close now, I can almost smell a little newborn!
Duckford - safe journey today. Definitely take bag, noites and carseat with you!
PW - I hope you're feeling a bit more positive today
Noodle - I think it's a postcode and mw lottery when you'll get a sweep. Fingers crossed you won't need one at all.
Daisy - I really hope your mum is wrong.
Luna - hope you're a bit more comfortable today
AFM - WFH today as H is in Scotland until late tonight and I also have mw this afternoon. Typically not with 'my' mw, I've only seen her once at 6w, she's always been on holiday since then so I've seen other mws. I wouldn't be bothered but she's so lovely and down to earth I was hoping to see her more.
Have booked next thurs off work so including today I only have 9 working days left...eeek!
Have had poor *bunny* on my mind a lot since reading her post yesterday.

Morning BG, I havent been able to get bunny or baby K off my mind either, just heartbreaking. I wish I had holidays like the MW's and HV's do lol. I was visited by my HV early because she is on hol for 3 weeks of August lucky moo. Its a pain when you like your med professional and they just arent about :( not long now work wise those 9 days will fly by.
Im a bit more comfortable today, more discharge this morning probably due to my second speculum (hate those things more than I can say lol) just relaxing before starting to tidy up :) hi to all who follow xxx
08/08/2013 at 08:34
Thanks BG - hope mw goes ok. 9 working days isnt long :D
Luna - sod the tidying up :)
AFM - mw this afternoon. hope baby has turned else will be referred to hospital. Hubs is working nights for the rest of this week so quiet nights on my own :) i was thinking about Bunny a lot last night. makes me very sad :(
hope everyone else is ok x
08/08/2013 at 08:44
hahahahaha I wish twink but if it doesnt get done I will be reported for living as a mole woman lol x
08/08/2013 at 08:46
BG- good luck with the mw, yay to only 9 days left.
Luna- make sure you do plenty of relaxing and not too much tidying up
Twink- really hoping that baby has turned for you.
AFM- went to see my friend and her two girls yesterday, one is around 18months and one is 3 months, they are such a delight and was so nice to hold the little one. Cant wait for my little boy to get here now! Not got much planned today, hoping to go car seat shopping this weekend.
08/08/2013 at 08:47
BG - I am so jealous, wish I only had 9 working days left. I have 8 weeks! Ah!
Morning luna, I can't stop thinking about Bunny and Baby K either.
Twink - Seriously sending you vibes to get that baby turned around! I am chnting "turn" in my head for you.
AFM - Not alot going on. V tired this week. Baby sparkles must be having a growth spurt or something. Yoga tonight though. Loving having it on a Thursday, it signals that it's nearly the end of the week!
08/08/2013 at 08:48
Crossed with Mummy S - Hi there, what car seat you going for or do you not know?
08/08/2013 at 08:50
Hi MS I am trying to persuade my bum to get off the couch haha. OOhhhh car seat shopping, ours came with the pram so we never got to do that bit :(
LP - think everyone is the same with bunny and baby k :( enjoy your yoga sesh nearly the weekend! x
08/08/2013 at 08:53
Morning all I didn't manage to post yesterday but I did read bunnys update it is so desperately sad.
BG I'm yet to see 'my MW' she is also always on holiday when I make appointment. The MW I have seen though is lovely and I wish she was 'mine'
Luna glad to hear you're feeling more comfortable, try and take it easy if you can
Twink fingers crossed for a successfull MW appointment lets hope that baby's turned.
AFM took Isla to a free play day at our local park yesterday afternoon. Most of the activities were aimed at school aged children but she still had fun running around and we did watch a talk about some animals. They had a snake, turantula, tortoises and some cockroaches. Isla was brave and touched the snake. Think I ran around a bit too much though as my bump ached terribly last night. All good today though. Hi to everyone else x
Blimey I typed slowly then. Hi LP and MS xx
08/08/2013 at 08:56
Morning all, another here who is thinking of Bunny and Mr Bunny, such sad news x
BG, that's a lot of holidays for your MW! Only 9 days, eek!
Luna, take it easy today and rest up lots between jobs.
Twink, hope it's good news at the MW.
MS, sounds like a nice day yesterday and enjoy the car seat shopping.
LP, loving the end of the week yoga sign!
AFM, not a lot planned for today other than a bit of housework and maybe a walk to the park. I want to try and get the last cleaning jobs out of the way today so we are all ready for next week. Need to go back through my hospital bag as well and check what I put in there as I can't remember!
08/08/2013 at 08:58
Thoughts are with bunny, it's incredibly sad xxx
BG - my boss wasn't really around much yesterday so I didn't get a chance to talk to her :( Hope your MW app goes well, it's annoying when you can't see the lovely one that you're used to - I had the same thing last Friday. 9 days for you, 12 for me woo!
Luna - argh speculums are bloody awful. Last time I had bleeding and was at the hospital, the doctor shoved the speculum in and then left the cubicle with the curtains wide open! Glad you're feeling a little more comfortable today, hope you get some rest x
twink - lots of baby turning vibes for you
MS - nice that you were able to spend some time with little ones and they were well behaved - when I spend time with young children they always seem to act up and it makes me nervous!
AFM - Work is turning in to a joke now, I keep getting given more and more to do and have less time to handover. People are being ruder to me when I haven't had the chacne to do things and are expecting me to stay late and work through lunch which just feels impossible at 7 months pregnant - I'm tired and hungry!!!! They've also confirmed that my role will turn in to a managerial position while I'm on ML and my cover lady will take on the responsibility of managing three people in my absence. It's farcical. I was awake from about half 1 last night just worrying and thinking about it all. Sorry, ranting, just feeling really fed up and sad that I am not able to wind down properly and leave work feeling happy :(
08/08/2013 at 09:05
Luna - I'd be more worried if you did like the speculum
Twink - at least you'll know either way soon.
MS - what car seat are you looking at?
LP - try not to fall asleep at yoga!
MrsB - well done Isla! Alex was at a pet party a couple of weeks back and was all excited about the snakes and wanted to hold one, that was until she took the out of the plastic box. He wasn't so keen then, in fact was a total wimp and wouldn't even let me touch one!
M - I know! She only works part time, but I think I've just been unlucky. It's the third time in a row I should have seen her but haven't.
Popcorn - I'm sorry work is so rubbish at the moment. I know it's hard but after this month I promise you won't care about it until a few weeks before you're due back.
Oh dear, I ranted for so long I missed loads of people!
LP - enjoy yoga, I love doing it although we're on a summer break at the moment and I'm really missing it.
MrsB - sounds like a fun day yesterday, you have a very brave little girl!
M - hope you get all your jobs done :)

MB, Margot Im still on the couch lol this housework may wait for hubby hahaha. Margot we packed our bags yesterday, makes it feel even more real as if the giant bump isnt enough :)
PC according to the midwife practitioner he hadnt waited for my cervix to tilt the right way, he just rammed it in :( I didnt bleed but she thinks it may have knocked my plug a bit :( How much longer do you have in work?
BG so would I hahahahahahaha!
08/08/2013 at 09:31
Think we are going to get a maxi cosi, but will be looking at the britax too. I didn't manage to get on yesterday so not sure what's gone off with bunny. But its nice to know we are all thinking of her.
08/08/2013 at 09:33
Ive heard maxi cosi's are great, any excuse to shop hahaha x
08/08/2013 at 09:50
Have you bought your buggy yet? if so and it's a travel system (i.e. can clip the car seat straight on' just double check which ones fit if you haven't already.
We have the maxi cosi cabriofix and my friend has the pebble, I actually prefer the pebble to the cabriofix, it's slightly bigger and the strap at the bottom is more like a padded bar, just seems more comfortable.
08/08/2013 at 10:14
BG- we have already checked that they fit into our travel system. All car seats seem pretty much the same to me. I guess its just a case of trying different ones out.
08/08/2013 at 10:37
MS If you buy the isofix base (familyfix)for the maxi cosi then the same base will do you for the next stage seat too.
08/08/2013 at 10:38
Hi MrsB - that's what we were thinking of doing, seems worth it to avoid having to buy another base for a bigger seat.
