Morning all, hope you're all managing to stay cool, or at least comfortable, in this weather.
I had a fab day yesterday, spent most of it in water so was nice and chilled and picked up a bit of a tan. It's the start of my working week today, and it's going to be a fast paced, busy one. My rreplacement started last week and is great but very keen and is keeping me on my toes with lots of questions and suggestions.
Little Bob was ever wriggly last night, it was like she'd gotten herself wedged and was panicking to get free/turn I imagine all those acrobatics will have worn her out today, at least she can catch up on sleep during the day...

BG - your photos from yesterday looked like you had a great time. Hope work is ok today
Its cloudy here this morning, hoping the cloud takes a while to burn off so its cooler for a bit but I doubt it. Managed to tear my maxi dress yesterday so am back to having 2 summery things that fit. May have to go to Asda and see if I can get a cheap pair of shorts in a big size and hope I can do them up. My H is off today so we'll hopefully get a few jobs done around the house. J isn't coping well with the heat so if its really hot this afternoon we might go to the local swimming pool or the shops or something just to get inside somewhere cool!

BG your work sounds exhausting!!
Ally hope you can pick up a couple more light summery bits to wear, I'm having the same problem!
AFM - I am suffering with my hips/SPD and also seem to keep getting a sciatica type pain (shooting pains from my bum down through my leg). It's agony and is making moving about very difficult, am finding it quite frustrating. That alongside the heat is making for bit of a miserable me!! I am SO ready for this baby to come now. On a brighter note, we've had a nice couple of days - H works freelance and has a couple of weeks break so there's been lots of paddling in the sea, lunches out and George's first sports day which was very cute. All helping to make me a bit cheerier lol!

BG, sounds like a lovely day yesterday, hope work isn't too tiring.
Ally, hope you can find some clothes that fit, I'm struggling too in the heat to find things to wear.
Dinx, not long to go now!
AFM, no more work this week, although I'm going to sew more costumes on Friday morning which I'm looking forward to. Jacob and me are off to swimming this morning which will be nice then popping to town then the rest of the day will be spent just trying to keep cool!

BG - sounds like you'll be busy again today. Good that your replacement is asking lots of questions, hopefully that means they'll be ok when you're not there. I'm still getting emails from mine now with questions.
Ally - rubbish about ripping your dress. I'm in the same situation, don't want to buy any more clothes with just 1 week to go.
Dinx - hope your feeling better soon, hopefully not too long to wait now!
Margot - enjoy the swimming!
AFM - 39 weeks today! Not a lot to report really, probably just spend the day in the garden again and off to my friends for fish and chips tonight
Have a good day everyone

Apologises for being AWOL for the last ten days or so! My excuse is currently sleeping in his Moses basket. I realised I never got round to asking for a PP. I haven't logged on so at the moment don't know what I have missed but will try and catch up over next few days.
So my news - I will do a separate BA and BS as soon as I can - Samuel Joseph arrived 8 days late at 2.47am on Sunday 30th June. Sam weighed in at 8lb 6oz and us gorgeous. Labour and his birth were quite quick in the end and more straight forward than M's. as a result here we are ten days on and things are great. M loves being a big sister. We have a tongue tie to sort but still able to breast feed.
Going to have to stop there as M has just woken up. Will start catching up with the last 10 days, in the meantime hope everyone is well! Xx

AHHHHHHHHH CONGRATUALTIONS :D
10/07/2013 at 08:47
Huge congrats MrsH, lovely name (current 1st choice for my baby too :-))
10/07/2013 at 09:02
Congratulations MrsH! x
10/07/2013 at 09:06
Congrats Mrs H.
Just a quick hello from me as I am killing time at Docs before having my whooping cough jab.
All well with me, baby was properly studing arms/legs out last night. They are so small and spindly. It was nice but at the same time a bit freaky. You'd have thought being #2 I'd be used to it but when you feel actual limbs its a bit like I have an alien in there

Bridget – a day in water sounds amazing! I’m jealous!
Ally – oh no, how annoying about the dress. My maxi dress is so long I noticed that it’s been catching on my flip flops and has various little holes at the bottom but I can get away with that still. Hope you manage to find some more bits – my new outfit for in the house at the moment are my pj shorts – they are so cool.
Dinx – sounds like your past few days have been loads of fun. Hope it’s managed to take the edge of the pains a little. Not long to go now.
Margot – enjoy your time swimming and keeping cool!
Twinkletoes – enjoy your day (and the fish and chips!)
Twink – hope mw goes well this afternoon. How exciting about twinklets room nearly being done, are you going to give us a flash when it’s finished?
MrsH – so glad to hear you’re all doing well! Congratulations!!
IDC – actual limbs is definitely freaky – I find it weird enough if I think too much about their being a baby in there let alone actual body parts!
AFM – not much to report – mw this afternoon, it’ll be the last one I go to by myself as by the time of my next appointment in 2 weeks H will have finished school for the summer and will be able to come along with me, which he seems to be looking forward to.

Massive congrats MrsH!! Lovely name as well. Hope you are all doing ok xxx
BG - Good that your replacement is so keen, better that than completely disinterested! How long have you got before your ML starts?
A - bad news about your maxi dress, hope you manage to stay cool today and your LO too x
Dinx - feel so sorry for you, must be horrible to be suffering with SPD and now sciatica pain as well, especially if it's hot where you are. Sounds as though it's been nice for you to have some time with your H though. Hope you feel better soon.
M - woo to no more work this week. Enjoy swimming later.
TT - not long to go now!!
twink - nice that it's a bit cooler for you now. Exciting about the nursery, have you got some pictures to show us? Hope MW goes well.
IDC - nice to be feeling so many movements, even if it is a bit freaky!
Sapphire - hope MW goes well.
AFM - have a really bad back at the moment, it's horrible. Spent most of yesterday evening trying various positions on the sofa with my pregnancy pillow to get comfortable. Interviewing for my ML cover this afternoon. It's all a formality as she is the only internal applicant and my boss pretty much made her apply...my work are so backwards sometimes! I've designed a really hard interview test all the same though *evil laugh*

i will def flash once the wall papers done :)
10/07/2013 at 11:05
Hi all! just a quick hello today.
Congrats Mrs H, we did wonder where you had got to!!
AFM - not a great day, my gran has taken a fall and it appears it happened at half 9 last night, not being found until 830 this morning by my aunt. Just waiting for news and hope to get up to the hospital to see her later. Have good days all!

Not much to report here, better day at work which is good. Just off to take the girls swimming which I loathe as it's really late and I'm tired but some reason they come back completely hyper.
Baby seems fine, GTT went ok (although I'll guess I know for sure when the results come back) and WC jab was fine. Arm was a bit achey but no problem. Bit cooler here today but it's forecasted to be 28 on Saturday!
10/07/2013 at 18:42
Will be around properly tomorrow. Nothing to report today.
Huge congratulations to MrsH. Hope you're both doing well?
There's a few us due round the same time I noticed. Will be an exciting time in August x

Just a quick one to let you know mw went well - bump still growing well and baby has now started to engage. She said it's between 1 & 2/5s engaged already! :)
