Morning ladies. I'm up early for some reason! Baby out vibes to all that need them.
Looks like it's going to be a lovely day today. I'll probably go out with my parents and S as they have him on Tuesdays. Managed to pull my hip flexor last night so won't be walking far if I can help it! Got my leaving meal tonight so looking forward to that. Not much else to report here!
Have a good day everyone

Afm.. Well and truly on countdown now.. Last four days at work.. Can't believe it..
Will pop back later if I can.. Looking forward to having more time to keep up with you ladies...

WH...enjoy your day out and hope it doesn't involve too much walking for you!
bexy...yay to your last week at work, I'm sure it will fly by!
Afm...woke up with a headache and feeling sick, not impressed as I'm supposed to be going shopping with my sister today and don't want to cancel! I have to take the kids to school and then wait in for the grocery shop this morning till 11am so I have a few hours to feel better!!
Will pop back in a bit!

Bexy - oh that's exciting, not long to go :-)
Libby - hope you feel better soon and manage to go shopping
AFM, nothing much happening. H is at work then A has nursery and dancing this afternoon. Not sure what we'll do this morning, prob just go out a walk if its dry. No baby news to report :-)
Hi to all that follow x

WH - ouch to your hip but hope you manage to have a good day.
BB - hope your last 4 days go quickly!
Libby - hope you feel better soon.
Ally - enjoy your day whatever you decide to do.
AFM - i have had tightenings from 3am this morning every 12 mins ish. Have never had braxton hicks so dont know if its the real thing or not. Going to drop G at preschool soon and have a bath to see if they stop or not - thats the test right?? Have had some diahorrea and blood streaked gunge this morning too but that could be down to the examination i had yesterday. Will keep you posted!!! X
23/04/2013 at 08:11
WH, sounds ouchy, take it easy today
Bexy, woo hoo last 4 days! Bet you can't wait
Libby, sorry you're feeling rubbish. Hope you are better for going out later
Ally, enjoy your walk
MM, I really think this is the start of things for you!
Afm, nothing much to report. Felt cr@ppy last night but think I just overdid it yesterday in the end as I spent the morning in town with A and then ended up sorting through the kids wardrobes all afternoon, getting rid of what's too small, wintry etc and then getting all their spring/ summer stuff out. The amount of clothes they have is just ridiculous. I the had loads of BH's so had a bath to ease them.
Nice quiet day today. O is at school and A in nursery so I am dropping them off and then staying at home and plan to sit in the garden, read a bit, crochet a bit and mess on the iPad! X
23/04/2013 at 08:26
ally...enjoy your chilled out day, enjoy your walk!
mm...all sounds promising, hope things kick off for you soon! Yes they say BH will stop in the bath but the real thing won't so worth a try! Good luck and FX!!
morph...take it easy today, I got carried away sorting through the kids room the other day and it is exhausting!

I hope it's ok to join you, I'm 28 weeks tomorrow so I thought it was about time I head into the 3rd tri group. Can I just ask how do you go about getting a pp or being one for someone else?

AFM - We have the interviews today for my maternity cover, I'm not sitting in on this round but really not looking forward to it anyway! Off to pick up the car seat base tonight (another thing to tick off the list). Hopefully having a relaxing evening after the last few days, did a run on Sunday and aquanatal last night plus H stayed up until midnight playing a poker tournament on his phone in bed so I think everything's catching up with me and I'm feeling tired!
Have a good day everyone

Morning Ladies! I'm on before i start work this morning! *is sneaky*
WH - where is your hip flexor? sounds sore! Enjoy your day! and hope you have a lovely meal tonight too!
Bexy - I'm so jealous! I don't finish until the 3rd of May! Enjoy the last few days of work!
Libby - Hope you feel better soon. Enjoy your day with your sister!
Ally - Sounds like a nice quiet day ahead! Enjoy it!
Maisie - Sounds interesting! Hope that it's the start of something happening for you! You sound quite calm about it all too. I don't know how i'm going to be when the time comes!
Morph - your day sounds fab! Sorry you're feeling rubbish though! hope it passes.
Twinkletoes - Welcome to the 3rd Tri! for a PP, you can start a thread and request one, or if you have someone on the forum in mind that you'd like to be your PP, you can ask them! Exciting stuff about the Mat cover! Sounds like your needing a wee rest now though!
AFM - I've been sleeping a little better, but i'm waking up stiff and sore in the middle of the night/Morning, so although my mind is getting some rest, i'm still waking feeling like i've not slept...if that makes sense. The latest one is my fingers feel crampy and sore when i try to bend them first thing in the morning (and when i've been asleep and wake in the middle of the night needing the loo).
Baby has found new and interesting ways to make me uncomfortable too, it's new favourite haunt is under my ribs kicking my stomach! or while i'm sitting at my desk i keep getting the sensation that LO is bearing down into my pelvis. Yay!!
Got my last antenatal class this afternoon which H is to go to as well, so we'll see how that goes!
Workwise, i'm finishing up next Friday for my Mat leave, which is a bit surreal feeling, but i'm looking forward to it. I'm just trying to work through all my current workload, finish what i can and also draw up a general guide to the role for my cover to read so that she can get a better idea of the job once she starts without relying on my colleague. She'll manage just fine, i know she will, but i'd like to give her as much info as possible before i go!
23/04/2013 at 09:13
WH - hope you enjoy your day out with S and your folks.
Bexy - 4 days!!!!!!! Hope they aren't too stressful.
libby - hope you feel better after a few hours rest
Ally - sounds like a lovely relaxing day you have there.
MM - fingers crossed things are happening for you now! xx
Morph - what you crocheting at the moment? I showed my cousin the WIP of the Christening blanket yesterday and she cried!
TT - very impressed with your running and aqua! Hope you get an earlier night tonight.
Alocin, how are you getting on with your NCT buddies? Anyone had their babies yet?
RKB - I keep feeling like I'm squashing my baby at my desk. Felt mega guilty as I thought they were still breech and it was their head I kept banging on the desk, however, they have turned and it's its bum I keep bashing instead!
AFM, 33 weeks today! Had a complete "OMG, this baby is arriving very soon" freak out over the weekend and got lots of jobs done and bought lots for my hospital bag. Must get that packed soon.
Bloods are much more settled with my evening dose of metformin, which I am happy about.. None of the side effects either, so all good.
Had a paddy at my Mum yesterday and I told her that I wanted to keep our section date Q for now. She had since told my Nan, her boss and my aunty.. Grr! She couldnt see my reasoning for wanting to keep it quiet. I think she's been telling everyone our baby names too.
Matilda is poorly sick so I currently have her in the office with me watching the Lion King (office is in our garden before you all think I am mega mean!) Hoping to get all urgent stuff out of the way then have a duvet afternoon with her.
Hope you all have a good day.
23/04/2013 at 09:20
Sorry Al! Missed you there! - Enjoy your lunch!
Rusty - Can't say i blame you for being annoyed at your mum. I'd be the same, which is why we haven't told my parents anything, i'm quite sure my mum would blab if she knew our names too. Hope your LO feels better soon. the Lion Kings's a great film!
23/04/2013 at 09:32
Morph sounds like you have a nice chilled day planned. Hope you feel better.
Welcome to 3rd tri TT! Enjoy your relaxing evening.
Have a good day Al.
RKB i feel calm at the moment but only because i dont really know whats going on ha ha!! Havent noticed any more tightenings since i got up so its either stopped or i am not noticing it. I have a mum to be massage booked for 10 so have decided i will go along to that and chill for a bit. Have you been tested for carpal tunnel on your sore hands?
Rusty well done on getting your stuff sorted! Parents are a nightmare arent they. MIL called ladt night to ask if i wanted her to stay with us for a few days. Errrrrr NO! Bless her heart but that would be my idea of hell!! Hope M feels better soon
23/04/2013 at 09:43
WH - owch to pulling your hip flexer, hope that it gets better soon. Enjoy your leaving dinner tonight
Bexy - hope that the next 4 days fly by for you! Not long at all!
Libby - hope that you feel better soon and have a fun day with your sister
Ally - enjoy your day. Sun is shining so a walk sounds lovely
MM - Look forward to hearing an update from you - hopefully your 23/4 baby prediction will be right! Baby out vibes!
Morph - sounds like you definetely need to take it easy today. Enjoy your day in the garden
TT - welcome to 3rd tri and the home stretch! Hope that you manage to find someone good for your cover. Sounds like you need an early night this evening!
Al - enjoy your lunch with your NCT ladies
RKB - I have the same feeling whilst at my desk, very uncomfortable. not long to go for you now though. Have fun at your last antenatal class this afternoon
Rusty - how annoying about your mum spilling the beans, I would also be mighty angry. I also had a freak out moment this weekend when I reached 33 weeks - it's all a bit real and soon now! Hope that M feel better, am sure the Lion King will help!
Afm - well it's my birthday, the last one before baby! H has been an absolute star and filled the bedroom with ballons this morning when I got up to go for a wee! Have been totally spoilt with gifts and am off for lunch with some girls at work. So happy that the sun is out so that we can sit outside. Unfortunately H and I are unable to go out and celebrate this evening as we have our first NCT class so have decided to go for a meal on Friday instead. Am feeling slightly anxious about NCT - have had my head in the sand for so long about this baby actually coming out and am sure the classes are going to change that! Hope that we meet some nice people.
Have a good day all and enjoy the sun! x

Ferbs - Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have a fab one! Enjoy your NCT classes, they will have a wealth of information for you, and should hopefully put you at ease! I've been going to antenatal classes, and i'm still in denial this baby is less that 4 weeks away (potentially)
Maisie - It's only just appeared in the last couple of days, so i've not had a chance to get it checked out. I did wonder about it being CTS, and i pray that it's not because it sounds horrible! I'll maybe ask about it at my antenatal class this afternoon. I've got less that 2 weeks left at work! Surely my hands can last that long.....
23/04/2013 at 13:52
Happy birthday Ferbs xx
23/04/2013 at 14:34
Thanks ladies! Just been out for a lovely 2 hour lunch in the sun....do I have to do some work now?!
23/04/2013 at 14:47
Nah, nearly home time. Put your feet up!
23/04/2013 at 16:34
Hi ladies, back from my last antenatal class, was really good - just if anyone is interested and doesn't have one already, Sports Direct have gym balls at 6.49! Just picked one up along with some clothing in case we decided to go with a water birth! Feeling pretty positive about everything now.
physio woman also said she thinks I have CTS, so gave me splints to wear at night! Joy!

Happy birthday Ferbs!
Sorry to hear its CTS RKB. Glad the class went well though xx
