Firstly today is Ixia's birthday and she'll be into day 2 of induction...can we all send lots of baby out vibes her way?
Kapowski - lots coming your way too. Hope baby is out before the Friday heat.
AFM - woken up with a cold Wah!! I think I had this just a little while before I had O too so I'm hoping it's just a sign *clutches straws* and will be kind to me! MW late this afternoon so we'll see what progress we're making! Otherwise just a quiet day indoors bar a quick trip out to pick up some nice new maxi dresses I've ordered for post baby!
Hi to all who follow x

Just had an update from Ixia "been in hospital for 24 hours and had pessary and 2.5 hours of monitoring yesterday. It was very boring with no WiFi or working tv! Going to delivery at 10am to have waters broken and drip, if there is a room available. " You can do this lovely, can't wait to share your news xxxx

Morning Coco - hope the cold is a good sign! Good luck for the mw today.
Ixia - good luck and I hope things progress well today! What a birthday pressie if the little one arrives today (hopefully!).
Baby out vibes to Kapowski too.
AFM - no news really. Hips feel ok today so might venture into town as I need to get a birthday pressie for a friend. Have felt a few niggles lower down over the last day or so. I think it's probably my pelvis loosening and/or baby moving into my pelvis. All good signs I suppose!
Hello to those that follow! X

Happy birthday Ixia, hope baby makes an appearance soon!
Coco - boo to cold! Hope it's not too bad x
Browny - glad you are having a good hip day, hope it lasts!
AFM - I've got a sweep booked at 12.30, hope it works! Not sure I want to be pregnant or in hospital on Friday in 30 degrees!! Got the cutting in and windowsill finished in the nursery yesterday, just skirting to add and new carpet to book in and it's almost there!
16/07/2014 at 08:29
Browny - hope the hips hold out for shopping today. Sounds like the Niggles are things starting to move in the right direction to me!
Kapowski - Hope the sweep isn't too unpleasant and that it gets baby moving for you! Well done on the nursery too!

Just crashing with baby out vibes for Ixia and also Kapowski.
Hi to Coco and Browny too xxx

Coco - hope the mw goes well and the cold is a sign that the end is nigh!! Are the maxi dresses for an occasion or just because?
Browny - enjoy shopping. Glad the pain is a bit better today. Niggles are a good sign! Movements for me have been a lot lower recently which I'm also hoping means bean has moved.
K - everything crossed for a favourable sweep today. Hope it's not too uncomfortable. Let us know how u get on. In a general sense obv haha. Yay for a nearly finished nursery. I smell a flash coming on
Baby out vibes to Ixia and a very happy birthday! Hi CA! How's your gorgeous girl?
AFM - I think I've got PUPP which sucks. I have a few stretch marks on my stomach and they are raised and incredibly itchy. I've been waking in the night scratching so hard they bleed :( apparently there's not much I can do so I'm trying to keep my hands busy! I seem to be getting some new ailment every week haha.

Good luck to Ixia, hope baby is with her very soon :-)
Coco, enjoy your retail therapy, and hope your cold doesn't develop too much.
Browny, glad your hips are feeling better. Enjoy your shopping.
Kapowski, hope the sweep works for you. Will be keeping an eye out for any updates. Good luck xx
Jonesy, sorry to hear you're itchy. Maybe baby isn't the only one who needs scratch mitts ;-). Is there nothing you can take for it?
CA nice to see you here, how's the little one?

BF - other than antihistamines not really. There are steroid creams and pills but I'm not willing to take those so I will just deal with as best as possible. Cold flannels and sudocrem have been getting me through so far! Hope you're OK

Coco - Sorry to hear you've woken up poorly but I've got my fingers crossed it's a good sign as you suspect
Ixia - Good luck birthday girl!! x
Browny - Pleased to hear your hips are doing well today, don't overdo it even though you feel good or you'll suffer for it tomorrow x
Kapowski - Hope the sweep went well earlier. Just saw weather report and it's saying 31 now in places (but with thunderstorms so hopefully it won't feel that hot!!)
Jonesy - I've no idea what PUPP is but it sounds unpleasant. Don't know what to suggest but hope it doesn't get worse :(
CA & Barefoot - Hellooooo!
AFM - I am soooo relieved that I've a few days off after seeing the weather report again this morning! I think I'd be passed out on the floor if I was having to be at work over the next few days. We've got 1 night at a spa hotel booked for tomorrow so I'm really hoping the room has air con / ceiling fan! I had my last 'full' day at work yesterday, then I've got a week off and when I go back from Thursday 24th I'm doing shorter hours up until I finish thankfully. Hope everyone else is doing okay in the hot weather x
16/07/2014 at 15:21
Jonesy - not sure what pupp is but doesn't sound very pleasant, hope it gets better soon x
CA & Barefoot - hello!
PS - enjoy your spa night, let's hope the temps don't make it as high as they are predicting.
Sweep was successful (but feckin painful!!), am 1cm dilated so they are hopeful something will happen soon. The whole process was not pleasant, I felt sick and then nearly fainted on the way out! Heat not helping I don't think. Hope ixia is getting on ok!
16/07/2014 at 15:42
PS - enjoy your days off!! Have u got much planned or just chilling? The spa sounds lovely I'm sure you will get some air con there. If not u can live in the shower. Yay for shorter hours too. PUPP is just like a rash thing. Apparently it means a reaction to fetal DNA which sounds odd but I've taken a benydryl so fingers crossed!
16/07/2014 at 15:43
Glad the sweep went well K. Hopefully this is the start of things!
16/07/2014 at 16:56
Kapowski - sorry it was painful but glad things are favourable!
CA hello! Hope you are ok!
Jonesy - that doesn't sound very nice :( hope it eases soon.
BF - hello! How are things with you?
PS - glad you've finished full-time now! I hope you have a lovely time at the spa and get so,e relaxing done!
AFM - one of our NCT group had their baby this morning! She was 36.5 weeks! It's made me feel really mixed emotions - scared as that means it could happen anytime for me (although knowing my luck I'll be late!) but also a pang of jealousy as I want my baby now too! Also a bit sad she won't be at the classes now (although they finish next wed) as I got on with her quite well. I'm selfish I know!

Hi PS, the spa sounds good :-)
Browny I am OK thank you other than being on antibiotics for an infected navel piercing (no idea how or why after it was done 20yrs ago) that's painful. Have had maternity bar in for the last 4 months so it's not that I haven't done things right. One of our NCT ladies had her baby the weekend too, at 37 weeks so she didn't finish the course. Hoping to meet her and her boy next week. Had mw visit at home this afternoon and another next week, otherwise nothing much happening baby-wise.

Sorry no time to post further personals but a quick update from Ixia
"Hi still no baby! Pessary didn't work-contractions but no dilation so couldn't break waters and 7 hours on oxytocin with no progress. Waiting to have an epidural and another go at breaking my waters."
Continuing to send lots of vibes your way lovely xxx
