Where are all the early birds today? Hope all you ladies on ML had lovely Tuesdays?
Not much to report from me, other than excrutiating sciatica and no physio referrel all is dandy! Few interviews today for my maternity cover so fingers crossed someone has potential! I worry about my boss being left to cope on his own, he a love, but such a martyr!!

Morning pc! I'm here..hope the interviews go well today...you will soon stop worrying about work I promise.. I have!
Afm... Midwife was fine yesterday.. She suggested reflexology to help get things moving and I know some other ladies here have had it so I have booked in for some tomorrow. Today is non eventful really... Meeting mum for lunch but apart from that the weather is miserable so ill just be at home pottering!

PC - hope that you find someone to cover you at work. We had two rounds of interviews and fortunately the last person who turned up was right for the job. Like Bexy says, you will stop worrying about work! I am ony now starting to wean off and concentrate on me and baby, never thought it would happen!
Bexy - glad that MW went well. I was also wondering about reflexology in the next few weeks. Like you say, it seemed to work well for others on the 3rd tri who have now had their babies. Enjoy your day pottering!
AFM - am booked in to have a pregnancy massage which was a present from my sister and mum. I can't wait! Had a terrible nights sleep with backache etc so a massage is just what I need right now! Before then I am taking my nana out for coffee with my sister as have not seen her for a while what with being so busy and she is so excited about the baby!
Have a good day all x
PC - hope you get your cover sorted soon! Hope the Sciatica died down a bit!
Bexy- glad all is well after your MW app yesterday! Hope you enjoy the reflexology tomorrow!
AFM - well it'll be my due date tomorrow, and little one is showing no signs of wanting to make an appearance. Can't say I blame them! It's probably nicer in there than out here! Might go for a walk later and see if I can encourage them along. Thought I had a bit of a show yesterday, but because it was quite clear and stringy instead of the usual blob of blood stained mucus most people describe, i've kind of discounted it as nothing. Went to bed with a really sore back, but again! Nothing came of it *sigh*
RKB 39+6....and fully expecting to still be here this time next week!

Ferbs - have a lovely time with your nan and enjoy your massage!!

Hi ladies, just a quick one. Need to take A for his appointment to check out his cataract. Appt not until 9.30 but I need get there an hour early to park.
All fine here. Seeing a friend later for a catch up but no other plans x

Ferbs... Enjoy the massage. Sounds lovely that does...
Rkb.. Hope a walk gets things moving for you.. Baby out vibes!!!
Morph.. Hope the appt goes well..

Porkchop – rubbish, I hope you get a physio referral come through soon. Fingers crossed, the right candidate turns up today. When do you go on ML?
Bexy – glad mw went well yesterday. I’d never heard about the reflexology, how interesting!
Ferbs – enjoy your massage today and coffee, sounds like you have a nice relaxing day planned.
RKB – hope the walk gets things moving along. *baby out vibes*
Morph – hope the appointment goes well, an hour early to park, sounds crazy.
AFM – I officially came over here yesterday, but I was late to the party I think - at lunchtime so I don’t know if anyone saw. My whopping cough jab was giving me issues sleeping, as it hurt to lie on that arm. I’ve got my anti-D appointment this afternoon, need to remember to take the Kindle to have something to read while I’m hanging around after. Baby wise not much to report – except the kicks are definitely getting stronger!

Quick break until the next one!
Bexy - hope you have a nice chilled day! I cannot wait until ML!
Ferbs - sounds like you have a lovely day planned too, I'm jealous!
RKB - baby out vibes!!!!!
Morph - hope all is well at A's appointment.
Sapphire - finishing on 28th June, 6 weeks friday.
First candidate was ok, some gaps in his skills but I think he'd pick things up quickly, seemed pretty switched on. Next one is not so good on paper but we shall see.........

Sapphire....welcome to 3rd tri!! Hope the whooping cough arm eases soon!
PC.....sounds positive so far!
15/05/2013 at 12:50
Baby out vibes are much appreciated ladies! Thank you!
Morph - hope A's appointment went ok!
Hi Sapphire! Welcome to the 3rd Tri! hope your appointment goes well this afternoon.
PC - hope the interviews are going well!
I 'think' I've lost more of my plug this morning, but i really can't decided if that's what it is, or if i'm just getting clumpy discharge at the moment. It's like trying to figure out if I'm pregnant or not all over again without the luxury of a test to tell me......actually, that would be amazing if you could get tests to tell you if you're about to go into labour or not...Sadly i doubt anyone will be able to create them seeing as no one knows what sets labour off in the first place. Might try and get H involved in some MU tonight...Happily I suspect he'll jump at the chance seeing as i've been avoiding his advances for weeks now. I still can't imagine going into labour and having baby RKB, it just all feels a bit surreal like it's not going to happen to me ever.

PC, can't believe your referral hasn't come through yet! Have you got an occupational health service at work you could contact in the meantime?
Bexy, hope the reflexology helps move things along! I'd not heard of it before I joined this thread, but if nothing else it sounds calming
Ferbs, enjoy your massage! Sounds like a wonderful day
RKB, eek - due date tomorrow!! Hope the non-show was a show and that things kick off soon!
Morph, hope the appt went well
Sapphire, welcome to 3rd tri!!
RKB again, oooooh! if it's not usual, then I reckon it must be the plug. Remember a thread not long ago about plugs and a lot didn't have blood in like you'd expect. Could be a due date baby!
AFM - have woken up 2 days in a row with muscular pain in my shoulder and chest. I think it's from sleeping on my side but not sure what's changed to suddenly make it very uncomfortable. Frustrating as it's not like there's an alternative position to sleep in! So yesterday was my sisters scan and she's having a boy!!! Very exciting as our baby boy will have a ready made playmate!

Hello everyone, i think i belong in here now!
I'm a bit rubbish at getting in here these days as i can only access easily at work and we've been immensly busy lately.
Porkchop - sorry you're still suffering, that's a shame. Good luck with the interviews.
bexybexy - reflexology worked for a friend of mine, she had her baby the following day!
Ferbs - enjoy your massage, that sounds lovely!
RKB - fingers crossed you'll soon have your little bubs to cuddle!!
Morph - sounds like a fairly chilled day - enjoy!
Sapphire - shame the whooping cough jab hurts, did you tense your arm? I'm wondering if i'll have mine on Friday during my antenatal appt.
AFM, can't quite believe i'm in third tri!! Madness! Quick catch up as i've not been on in ages, i start and end every day with horrible lower back pain, i had to get hubs to roll me onto my side the other night as i couldn't move, it all hurt too much. Every afternoon i have horrible back pain higher up as if its the back side of my ribs. Really hurts. Apart from that all good, loving feeling bubs move so much, it's so magical! I love having a proper bump too, feel like i'm never on my own!
