Abc - ouch, cant imagine working that long! What do you do?
All good here. Nursery for Aaron and playgroup for Phoebe this morning. I've got toddler committee meeting. Baby being it's usually wriggly self, nothing to report really. Usual BH's etc. Oh its sitting on a nerve which occasionally causes me to yelp but apart from that I can't complain. Have my boden preview order on the way (one dress, very well behaved for me! My sister bough a giant muslin and some frugi bits for me yesterday :-) )

ABC, omg that would be good going if you can work that long! Hope your back feels better
CK, sounds like a nice wee day, is the boden dress for baby? Won't be long for you now, your pregnancy has flown in
Not much to report here, got consultant at 4pm to see what plan of action is, ive got a massive list of questions to take with me. Quiet morning as my friend is taking M to soft play, so that will be nice. So will get a bit of housework done and put my feet up for a bit
Baby out vibes to Penny and MrsPenguin xx

Im so screwed if this is a boy lol!
Hope the cons goes well and you get lots of info from them xz

You've had a few scans haven't you? It'll be pretty certain it's a girl. Girls clothes are so lovely, and lots more choice compared with boys x
07/01/2014 at 08:41
My last one was at 32 but we had 3d at 28 or 30 (cant remember) all girl but i always worry. I do love boys clothes so id be happy to go shopping, would just have a lot to re sell!

ABC - I'm doing the same thing re mat leave. Some days I massively regret it, others I think about the extra money! Hope your back gets better.
CK - not long to go at all! Ahh your purchases sound lovely. I'm dying to know what this baby is so I can buy pink/blue things.
Weekender - good luck for your consultant appt. let us know how you get on x
Not much to report here. Got an NCT class this morning and then work. I'm getting a bit paranoid that everyone thinks my bump is very small. It's always measured spot on what it should but I have to admit, I am one of the further gone in my NCT class and the smallest bump by miles.
07/01/2014 at 08:58
LD I was like that last time and she was absolutely fine so don't worry. I've got a long torso though, so think there's more room for baby to grow up and down instead of out iyswim? Enjoy your class xx

ABC- I hope work isn't too busy for you and that your BH ease up, not sure if you're desk based or not but try to put your feet up and have a colleague make you cups of tea if poss!?!?
CK- Ohhh Boden preview order sounds exciting!! Let us know if you get anything good! :-)
Weekender- Hope the consultant appt goes well, will be thinking of you, and make sure you do put your feet up a bit today!
LD- Enjoy NCT. I know what you mean about small bumps, I think if you compare it to other people it can be a bit worrying sometimes but as long as your MW is happy then you're obviously just lucky! :-)
AFM not much planned today - I am thinking of going for a swim but it's so grim out there I may just stay home instead. Had the midwife yesterday and all look good - he is 3/5th palpable so I think that means 2/5th engaged which was a bit of a surprise! Though I know he could stay there for weeks yet, so not planning for an early arrival.... Want to enjoy some mat leave first please baby!!

Abc, hope the 10 weeks flies by for you. I wish I could have worked so close to due date, but I was counting hours not days by week 36!
CK, ouch, baby on nerve is not a pleasant feeling.
Weekender, thanks for the vibes. Good luck for the consultant, hope it all goes as you want it too x
Little Dude, enjoy the NCT class today.
Rose, all sounds good for you. Hope baby stays text book!
Afm, had a terrible nights sleep again, was up til 4 with terrible period pains and nausea, would gave been excited but it was constant not coming in waves. Hoping this get moving today, have a sweep this afternoon x

07/01/2014 at 12:37
Just crashing in - Mrs P I hope this is the start of things and that the sweep kicks things off for you!
Did anyone hear from Penny after her sweep on sun?
Can you believe it's little O's due date today!? He was at hospital for a hip scan this morning but everything is ok. Looking forward to your BA's ladies, I hope your all doing well and I hope Mrs P and Penny aren't getting too many annoying 'update' texts etc xx
07/01/2014 at 12:42
ABC - That will be a long 10 weeks, I thought I was mad working to 38 weeks. Hopefully you can manage it though.
Ck - Can't believe you are full term now. Any signs of baby arriving soon?
WE - Hope your consultant meeting goes well.
LD - If you are measuring spot on then thats all that matters. I have been getting similar comments but its not like we can do anything about it, is there?!
Rose - Hopefully that doesn't mean baby is going to arrive early just that they are in the right position.
Mrs P - Hopefully the pain means something and sweep goes well today.
NLH - Hello, hope the massage helps once the pain from it eases!
AFM - Another busy day at work :( Only 5 more Mondays left tho!! Baby wise all good, H laid the carpet in the nursery yesterday and built the cot so its coming together now.
Hope everyone has a good day.

Hi MissDeeDee, hope you are both well!
It's amazing how many update texts you get! Surely the answer is always going to be no news, as otherwise it would be yes, had it last week mum , must have forgotten to tell you! Or I'd be in labour and the last thing I'd be doing is replying to your texts!
Glad to here everything is good with O, happy due date! Xxx

Thanks for asking
Consultant went ok....she didn't seem concerned, said to stick to existing plan (scan at 32 wks to check placental site, then if not moved book section 38 weeks).
The answer to most of my questions was "I can't answer that" basically because everyone's experiences are different. Even things like would an emergency section be under spinal or general anaesthetic she couldn't answer because it would depend on severity of bleed and it would be anaesthetists call at that point.
She said there was a chance I won't bleed again, but also said if there was a heavy bleed that calling an ambulance wouldn't be out the question.
So feck knows what's going to happen but she also gave me an appointment (33 wks) at high risk clinic so at least they are looking at it now I suppose.
Oh and she thought I might as well be at work. But I don't think I could face going in this week so will sign myself off and review next week. I'm not one for taking time off work but I know Im not dealing with this particularly well and the thought of having to deal with work too is a bit overwhelming tbh.

Glad the appointment went well. Sorry there more unanswered questions than answered ones. Must be difficult feeling in limbo but you seem to be coping very well. Good idea taking a bit of time off work, you don't want to rush back too soon. xx
Today has been hectic, thanks for all your thoughts about my small bump question. I have a long torso so I think it must be this, never thought of it this way before!

ABC I'm an accountant so a sitting down job mainly but it's fairly stressful at the moment - she said if I had a major bleed it'd be better to be with people around that could help me....i would be completely mortified at some of my colleagues seeing that!
LD post a bump pic so we can see, I'll try to find my term pics from with M and share, but I wasn't very big
