Morning campers! How is everyone today?
Think baby sparkles has tunred a bit as I am feeling wiggles and not so many kicks. Panicked at first as thought the movements were less but now realised she is in a different position. Spent last night helping OH to pack up the lounge in preparation for the laminate flooring to be done on sat. I am soooo excited!
Hi to all that follow xx

morning Little Pixie
them moving is sent to test us sometimes :) flooring sounds good
AFM - i'm ok. nothing new really. i dont think twinklet has turned yet but we'll see. as everyone keeps saying theirs plenty of time. see what the midwife says tomorrow :)

Morning LP. Can you ask OH to come and do the laminate flooring in my kitchen , we bought it months ago and I'm still waiting for H to lay it!
AFM , glossing the skirting in our bedroom today while W is at nursery. Got lots of rooms to get done so hoping it won't take too long and I can move onto the next room

Morning twink, missed you there. Good luck with the MW tomorrow

Just seen Sapphire's BA, congrats!!
LP - It's strange when you start to feel a different type of movement but you soon get used to it. My baby was laying head down on my bladder for weeks and then suddenly went breech so all the wriggles felt completely odd for a few days! I have no idea how s/he is laying now and neither does my midwife apparently!
twink - hope baby has moved for tomorrow
JT - hope you get everything done that you need to today
AFM - hoping for a less stressful day at work today than I had yesterday. I am going to talk to my boss about my concerns around my replacement's workload but don't expect to get anywhere. H said that all I can do is point out that I think it's not working and then they have to deal with the risk of her not having time to get up to speed before I go off. Pregnancy massage tonight which I am soooo looking forward to. I feel like I've earned it this week already!

LP, hope the flooring goes well, it will transform the room.
Twink, still plenty of time, hope the MW goes well tomorrow.
Jellytot, hope the glossing doesn't take long.
AFM, another quiet day today, need to take H's car to get the air con recharged and might drop into my parents as well, other than that need to get some more housework done so it doesn't need doing next week, and might try to make a list of what needs adding to my hospital bag on Monday morning. Slightly terrified that this time next week I'll have 3 children!

Popcorn, missed you. Hope your boss listens, but if not at least you've raised it and it's their issue to sort out. Enjoy the massage!

About to dive into a meeting so apols for no personals.
Congrats to Sapphire!
AFM - busy day at work ahead, slept really well last night for a change and feel better for it. My day was nowhere near as productive as it should have been yesterday, it still feels like I've for ages so nothing is that urgent!
Baby v.quiet this morning, will have a coffee in a mo to wake her up.
H off to Scotland for a couple of nights today, he scared me last night asking what my plan is if I go into labour while he's away. I don't think he was impressed with my answer of 'panic!'
07/08/2013 at 09:10
lp it is strange then they move and all their movements change pattern
Twink hope there's good news at mw tomorrow
JT hope you get all your glossing done
Popcorn hope work goes ok, enjoy your massage, sounds amazing
Margot so exciting about baby coming next week! ( and terrifying about the 3 of them!)
BG glad you slept well
Afm not alot going on here, lots of Braxton hicks and aches/pains/niggles - just end of pregnancy things. We're going away tomorrow for two nights as my bil is getting married on Friday in Berkshire...so will be taking all my hospitals stuff/car seat etc just to be on safe side. Looking forward to a last little getaway before baby comes

Jellytot - OH isn't laying the flooring. He is totally useless around the house at DIY bless him! He is paying a mate to do it. He also has no time for that with him being a gardener, very busy time of year for him :-)
07/08/2013 at 10:49
PC- your H is right, its not your fault or your problem if it all goes t**ts up after you leave so try not to worry x
Margot- so exciting you have less than a week to go!
BG - I like your answers or what to do if you go into early labour. I think I'm burying my head in the sand about a back up plan as have the MIL coming for CS date to watch W but she lives three hours and works so no idea what to do if I'm early
Duck ford- enjoy the wedding, hope you have a nice little break before baby arrives
LP- I think we will end up paying someone to do ours. We've so much left to go in our house and there's no way it can all be done before baby is here
AFM , having a tea and toast break from my painting. I'm getting more fine than I thought. I always end up burning out too soon though so knowing me will be sat on the sofa by lunchtime!
Congratulations to sapphire. Sympathies to pirate wife- it's horrible when someone jumps the queue!

Sorry for lack of personals again. Posted a separate thread yesterday asking for advice/venting. basically saw mw and this baby is not forthcoming! So booked in for induction on Sunday. gutted to say the least but feeling more positive than yesterday. by Monday i should be a mummy!! My H has taken today off so we're going on a day trip to Chester.
Congratulations to Sapphire.
Thinking of Bunny today though, what shocking news. so hard to comprehend.
Hope everyone else has a good day! Will make an effort with personals tomorrow! X

LP- its weird when they change position and the movements are different. It takes time to get used to the new ones
Twink- good luck for the midwife tomorrow, hopefully little twink has moved
JT- good luck with the glossing
Popcorn- have a lovely massage tonight
Margot- have a good day, slightly scary that your date is approaching so fast
BG- glad you slept well, fingers crossed nothing haooens whilst H is away then haha
Duckford- have a fab few days away, enjoy the time just the 2 of you
PW-there is still a few days until sunday so you could you still go into labour yourself. Hopefully lots of walking today will help
AFM 37 weeks today eekkk, sciatica back with avengence. Saw the midwife yesterday she is happy with everything so far, I was a bit suprised to learn I wont get a sweep until 41 weeks if needed, is that the same for everyone?
07/08/2013 at 11:53
LP - hope the new movements are ok and you get used to them.
Twink - hope there's good news from mw tomorrow
JT - don't get high on the fumes.
Popcorn - hope meeting with your boss goes well and enjoy your massage.
Margot - can't believe it's nearly your turn
BG - glad you had a good night's sleep.
Duckford - have a lovely few days away.
Noodle - Mw refused to sweep me til 41 weeks first time round too but this time she's agreed to sweep on dd.
Afm - in a proper grump and very emotional today. In alot of pain which nobody can seem to do anything about. 38 weeks now. Was talking to mum earlier about going into labour and she likes me think I'll go way over again. Joy! D is at nursery today so will at least get to lie down x
