Happy Tuesday ladies!
Can't believe we're in July already...really looking forward to the birth announcements we're due this month
Not a lot to report here but I slept comfortably ....I actually slept! I feel so much better for it this morning. Not a hint of achiness in sight for the first morning in ages! Taking O to a toddler group with a friend and her little boy this morning...hoping it will take my mind off waiting for news of my brother, as well as wear O out!!
Will pop back later for personals x

hi coco - well done on sleeping well and being ache free!
Am shattered here as was up watching germany against algeria here last night. i actually went to bed at 8 once Little Sue was in bed and my H woke me at 10pm for the game!! Baby was jumping all over the place and I was having non-stop BH's - I honestly though she was coming!!
New joys this morning - my breasts have started leaking!!!!! Have pads on and a fresh T-shirt at work - God - only 8 more days- enough here!!!
Hi to all!!

Morning! Coco glad to hear you slept. Lovely when you get more than 3-4 hrs isn't it? Enjoy toddler group!
Sue, I'm actually going to say yay, for leaky boobs! Means sthg is happening and your body is working :-)
I'm tired too, but had about 6hrs due to a sleeping tablet and earplugs. Yesterday I was a nesting demon: as well as housework, I did 4 loads of laundry (not baby stuff), de-mossed the patio, cleaned external windowsills, defrosted the freezer, pruned a tree, sorted hubby's dry cleaning and took Dad to and from a hospital appointment. Oh, and started some work CPD stuff. Plan to do more housework today, clean some more windows, weedkill the paths and some more laundry, maybe start the baby clothes. Hypnobirth tonight which I have decided I don't like, but it's paid for so I feel I should stick with it and give it a go!

Morning all, sorry for being AWOL but I've been busy helping my sister with my nephew who is just adorable!
Coco - glad you slept, good luck wearing O out!
Sue - not long to go at work now! Bet you can't wait :)
BF - sounds like you have been productive. I hate cleaning so not sure the nesting instinct will ever kick in for me!
AFM: MW appointment today, NCT classes start tomorrow night. Everyone keeps saying how small I am but I think I'm huge...can't win can we?! Loving my new nephew being here, really making me excited for baby Browny's arrival! Nursery is now painted, cot is up so have started washing baby clothes and organising things! We rearranged the living room last night to position the changing unit and Moses basket. It looks ok - it'll do for now anyway!
Hello to laters and lurkers - baby out vibes to those that need them! X

I cannot believe it's July and I am having a baby this month!!!
Coco - enjoy toddler group and good luck wearing out the small.
Sue - getting close!! mine leak overnight and I wake up with a wet sticky arm! Have to sleep in a crop top thing which I hate!
BF - You are a lady on a mission!!
Browny - Bumps are so different on every woman! Glad you are getting all sorted.
AFM - had MW at 8am this morning (forgot I would be on mat leave when I booked it!) and had strong heartbeat, good size bump, normal wee and BP and am 3/5 engaged! Eek! Then I popped to Mothercare to get fitted for nursing bras, the sales assistant was amazing and lovely and I left a very happy mummy to be (although a little poorer!). MIL is coming round to help paint skirting boards for the nursery shortly. As much as she is helping, I hope she isn't here long!!

Coco - great news about the sleep. It makes a world of difference doesn't it. Hope you enjoy toddler group and I hope it's good news for your brother.
Sue - BH and leaking sounds promising! Definitely gearing up to something eh? Good result for Germany too although I don't think it was too difficult a match for them haha
BF - blimey! You've been busy. Hope you enjoy hypnobirthing a bit more tonight. Have you been practising? Does that help or put you off more?
Browny - flash please!! We've moved our moses basket downstairs too but the only place it will go is in front of the under stairs cupboard. Hopefully this means I will be let off hoover duty haha
K - exciting news from the midwife! Do you feel like anything's happening? Also do you know what size mothercare nursing bras go up to? I saw their sale bits online today but nothing in my size :(
AFM - loads of BH and quite a lot of on/off period type pains since last Monday. Still pretty sure nothing will happen for ages but at least it feels like my body is practising! New chest of drawers in our room should be up tonight so we can arrange the crib etc and then our house is pretty much how we want it in every room. Apart from odd bits of decorating but nothing urgent! Gettting impatient for work to end, everyone is annoying me and our department is def getting outsourced so everyone is in a bad mood. Boo

Sorry to hear work is crap :( not sure any things happening just yet, BH are uncomfortable but not painful or regular.
Not sure on sizes, I've just got 36Es!

Just popping back to say hi to those I missed earlier.
Browny, we're at the same stage of organisation I think! I've washed the clothes today and brought my old crib over from parents' house yesterday to use as a downstairs bed. 40yrs on and still in lovely condition. Glad you've finished the nursery.
K, hope your skirting is all done now and looks lovely :-)
Jonesy, I've tried to practise the relaxation stuff but I don't like the CD or its music. I'd be better with the words recorded over music I like, or nature sounds etc. Or even reading the words while listening to my own stuff. I can do that with the book, but in classes the instructor seems to have the attitude that if I'm not getting on with the "official" way, I'm doing it wrong and not trying hard enough. Our NCT lady on the other hand fully supports relaxation techniques and was getting us to practice in our own way which I found much better. I'll see how it goes tonight and then talk to hubby about if I think it's worth bothering. Problem is, I just don't want to go, but on the other hand am really looking forward to NCT again tomorrow!
How long have you got at work now?
