Bad night for me last night, reckon I got 4 hours sleep. I'm shattered. It's my anxiety that's keeping me awake ratter than being uncomfortable too, Urgh!
Got the mw this morning, am hoping she's going to book my induction so I've at least got a date- hopefully I won't need it but I can't just wait without knowing what my end date is. Plus I'm really anxious to not be in hospital at the same dates that I was induced with my last baby, that's not a happy anniversary and I don't want this baby sharing it.
I'm hoping she might also attempt a sweep, got a feeling my cervix won't be favourable though!

Morning Imp - hope the MW appointment goes ok today. Is that what you were worrying about during the night? Or just everything? Sorry to hear you are feeling anxious, with everything else I'm sure it makes things harder to process/deal with. I'm sure they will accommodate your preference of dates considering. Would you rather it be afterwards so you have no risk of baby arriving on the same date? I hope it doesn't get to that and you go into labour naturally anyway. Baby out vibes!
AFM - spent yesterday at my sisters helping out. Love having squishy newborn cuddles with my nephew he's so cute. Today think I'm going to have a chilled one and try to reassess what needs doing around the house/for baby. We are getting there slowly!
Baby out vibes to those that want them! X

Ixia - sending lots of baby out vibes!
Imp - Sorry you've had a bad night, must be especially tough with the anniversary of your last baby around the corner too. Big hugs. Hope the mw is accommodating today, which I'm sure she will be given the circumstances.
Browny - It's going to be so lovely having your LO so close in age to your sister's. Glad all is coming along with the house, hope you have a nice chilled day.
AFM - a better night and no really aches which is a welcome change! I did get a random squirty nipple incident last night though which I've never had before!! (not just a leak!!) Today Mum and Dad are coming over to see us and are bringing our new moses basket. We turned our bedroom around yesterday too to fit the crib ready for baby...It all looks fab (and starting to feel v v real!!)

Imp - sorry you are feeling so anxious, hope this passes and you get your meet your beautiful baby soon on a date that works for you xx
Browny - glad you had a good day with squishy cuddles, and lovely to have them so close together in age!
Coco - glad you had a better night (minus squirty nipple!) and have got your room sorted!
AFM - we went out for dinner last night (again!) which was lovely, but I didn't sleep well. After staying up to watch football history I was then awake from 4-6 with cramping/pains and an anxious feeling not knowing what would happen. Had a good chat with some of the girls and feel a bit better this morning. Stay in there a little longer baby! Got midwife appt tonight at 6.45pm so will see what she says! Pains seem to have stopped again so I may have a little longer...

Imp- sorry you had a bad night. The anxiety won't be helping but there's not much you can practically do about that. I am sure that the hospital will work around your last induction date considering the circumstances. I imagine the anniversary is also what's adding to your worry? Loads of hugs for that coming up. That's got to be tough. Fingers crossed she offers a sweep!
Browny - hope you have a lovely chilled day. Newborn cuddles sound lovely and must be getting you so excited for your own. How lovely for your little one to have a cousin so close in age too! My two cousins on my mums side are very close in age to me and and my brother and we had loads of fun growing up together!
Coco - squirts nipple?? How odd haha. Glad there were no aches last night though. Yay for the bedroom being sorted. I love seeing our crib all ready.
K - hopefully the midwife will be able to reassure you a bit. It would be so much easier to just have a date of when it was going to happen rather than worrying for days when some of the signs appear. Pain easing off May just mean things are getting started though but baby out vibes all the same!
Ixia if you're about I hope that baby is getting ready to come out!!
AFM- had my last pre due date midwife appt this morning, scary! Baby is back on the top of the scale weighing 7 lbs already if it's right... With 3 and a half weeks to go!! Well, possibly 5 so it's not looking good for a dinky baby haha. I registered with a new gp in my area as well so I don't have to travel when bean is here for the jabs and things so I feel all prepared. I have my final consultant appt in 2 weeks and then see mw 3 days overdue. Got the day working from home which essentially means I am going to have a nap now!

Its quiet today!
Coco - glad you had a better night, lol at the squirts nipple! I haven't leaked at all - even when around my nephew :/ sounds like you are getting organised!
Kapowski - sorry you had a disturbed night and that you were feeling anxious. Glad you feel better about things now. Good luck for the MW - do you think she'll book your induction date?
After waiting for weeks for the medela swing breast pump to come down in price I went on eBay and found someone selling one new, very local to me so I've just been to pick it up. Sod's law says it'll come down in price now, but I'm too impatient and wanted it crossed off the list! That's all the big things purchased now so its a weight off my mind.
The later things are getting, the more I'm getting scared of labour. I'm reading birth skills by Juju Sudin and have bought a hypnobirthing book (more for breathing/relaxation techniques as I find it helps with my anxiety so hoping something similar will help in early labour) I'm hoping I'll feel more confident once I've read those and once the NCT classes finish. I'm a worrier by nature but its just so hard as its all so unknown! Tell me I'm not alone?! X

Missed you there Jonesy - bet its all feeling real now! Definitely coming to an end with your final appointments booked in! How are you feeling about it all? X

Jonesy - mine was estimated at 7lbs at 36 weeks... eek! Enjoy your nap!
Browny - you are not alone! I've been quite calm up until now and am starting to worry about the most ridiculous things!
I've just started cooking a batch of spag bol to go in the freezer and have bleached the kitchen! Pottering around cleaning and sorting bits. Unsure if MW will book induction or just leave me to it...
