sorry for not posting yesterday, never got the chance!
I was hoping to be posting some news this morning, possibly even a BA! But alas not!! It did seem like things were starting yesterday, had a lovely day playing with M which included a walk round the block, M went on her scooter and I waddled behind with a cup of ice cubes (only craving I've had) we got back and i started with a bit of back ache, then early evening started having a show (totally new experience for me as last time I went from being a sleep, waking, waters going and baby arriving 6 hours later!) started then getting tightenings which were coming every 15 mins or so. Decided that M should have a sleep over at my parents just in case. H and I went to bed about 10ish as H had been up since half 4. And then nothing! It all Seems to have stopped! So H left for work about half hour ago, I'm trying to get back to sleep for a couple of hours and will then get bouncing on the ball to see if things start again!!!
will try and get back on later but popping that I will be distracted by events!!!

Mrs h hope hat things start up again for you, how exciting! Would definitely try and get more sleep if possible.
Not much to report here. All's fine with baby. Hoping for a normal work day today so I can get home at a reasonable time now reports are done.

MrsH - hope things start up again soon!
Bunny - hope work is ok and you get home at a decent time
AFM, not the best nights sleep. Pubic pain killing me everytime I moved. Think I walked too much yesterday. My H is on his 4th early shift and is out the house for 13 hours so I'm just exhausted now looking after the other 2. I. can't imagine having 3 can be any worse than being heavily pg with 2 :-(

Mrs H - hope things start again soon, get bouncing! (after a sleep of course)
Bunny - hope you get home at a decent time
Ally - Having spent the day dealing with 2 who didn't sleep at the same time all day, you have my sympathy I realised how much I need A's afternoon nap!
AFM - midwife yesterday was v.quick, thanks to the screaming baby that was accomponing me. I think I'm measuring ok for dates although she didn't tell me what and didn't put it in my notes so I don't actually know. It wasn't my mw as she was off again, although I've now seen this one more than the once I've seen 'my' mw.
Am exhausted after yesterday, really didn't want to get up this morning. Have a few long days ahead, tonight I need to sort out what I'm going to wear on Fri and Sat, and sort out my camera for Sat, tomorrow evening I have hairdressers, Friday evening is my work's summer party and Saturday we have a Christening. I'm already looking forward to Sunday!

MrsH, hope things get going again soon and you have a quick and smooth time of it.
Bunny, hope you have a good day.
Ally, I'm hoping 3 is easier than pregnant with 2 as well, hope you can get some rest today.
BG, that doesn't sound like a particularly good MW appt, but sounds like you have a nice weekend ahead.
AFM, had a crappy day yesterday at work, cut my finger and got shouted at by a parent so glad to have the day off today. Taking Jacob swimming then have some housework to do. H has a few days off which are nearly all booked up with fishing so we won't be seeing much of him. Other than that, feeling okay and looking forward to a weekend with no plans.

That sounds like an exhausting few days BG!
26/06/2013 at 07:58
Missed you there Margot, sorry you had a crappy day yesterday. Hope today is better. Pretty much zero chance of me getting a rest today, only saving grace is that the sun is already shining so the kids can spend the day in the garden

MrsH - baby out vibes for you, hope things get moving!
Bunny - hope yopu have a good day at work.
Ally - poor you ! If its any consolation I have the exact same thing, then I get moaned at by my H for tossing and turning and waking him up!!
BG - Glad all was well at MW. Mine didnt measure me yesterday, think she must have forgotton!
M - what a horrible parent?! Hope today is better.
AFM - lots to tell! Had MW yesterday, Bean in 3/5 palpable so way on its way to being fully engaged, yay! Then I went to what I though was my normal tuesday night church group and it was another surprise baby shower!! Lots more presents, including the cutest little sheepskin boots!

Good morning ladies,
MrsH – ooo, that was all sounding so good. Sleeping sounds a good idea. Fingers crossed the bouncing on the ball gets things going again and baby will be here soon.
Bunny – hope you have a good day and get home at a ‘normal’ time.
Ally – I hope you get some rest in today.
Bridget – how weird that she didn’t fill in your chart. I’m sure she’d have made it pretty obvious if you weren’t measuring as expected. Sounds like some exciting but tiring few days ahead.
Margot – oh no, at least you won’t have to deal with any parents from school today. Enjoy your day, hope it makes up for yesterday’s rubbish day. A calm weekend sounds good to me!
Porkchop – exciting news about bean getting engaged and about your 2nd surprise baby shower. All in all sounds like you have a good day yesterday!
AFM – my mum made me laugh last night. She rang and mentioned that it suddenly hit her that the next time she sees us, we might have a baby! So I think she's thinking of trying to 'pop over' to ours one weekend in July. Poor H has been a bit ill with something that’s been going around at school so hasn’t been sleeping well, but last night was the first time he was awake in the middle of the night when I just couldn’t get comfy either as baby decided 3am was a good time to wake and go crazy on me. Have the mw at 1.30 today.

Sorry for being awol had 3 very long days at work!
MrsH- fingers crossed something starts kicking off for you today
Bunny-I hope works ok and you get finished at a good time.
Ally-take it easy today, I sympathise with the pain im finding it a struggle. Are you managing to sleep?
BG-im tired just reading about your busy weekend lol!
Margot-hope your day is better today, yesterday sounds awful for you
PC- another suprise baby shower how lovely, baby well on its way to being ready now
Sapphire-hope your hubby feels better soon, good luck with the midwife later
AFM 31 weeks today, baby very wiggly but less kicks, is that normal I assume he is running out of space to kick his legs out.
Lookig forward to a relaxing lunch with friends later, have a lovely day all

MrsH – how frustrating, especially as it’s different to your previous birth. I hope the ball helps get things moving and there’s a BA tomorrow!
Bunny – glad you got the reports done. Have a nice day!
Ally – Goodness, I hope your little one’s behave today and you get a better night’s sleep tonight.
BG – glad you’re measuring fine. I don’t seem to get much written in my notes either, and also see a different mw every time. We don’t get assigned a mw at my hospital though, just an ever-expanding team it seems. Your week sounds busy, but full of ‘fun’ events at least!
Margot – sounds like a rubbish day yesterday, hopefully today will be better. That’s rubbish your H is spending his leave fishing. I’d be pretty annoyed and it would end in tears!
PC – Yay to the baby getting engaged! I was 1/5 engaged last week so hoping for 2/5 next week too. Need to do some more ball bouncing this weekend I think
Sapphire – bless your baby having a party at 3am! Hope your mw appt goes well
Noodle – movements have definitely changed here over the last few weeks. Seems less than before, but sure that’s just because he’s in position without much room.
AFM – Have decided to try and see a physio about pelvic pains I’m getting, on the assumption that it’ll only get worse. Waking up every time I try to roll over at night, very frustrating – and painful! Just trying to suss out whether there are NHS options (that won’t take more than a couple of weeks), or whether to go private. Got midwife next Tuesday so hoping to get a referral then if not before. Six days left at work after today! Woo!

Morning ladies, haven't got time for personals today, I've come into work to hand a project over and finish some audit stuff. Struggled with the drive in this morning, took an hour and half to get here, so was in abit of pain by time I arrived. Woke up feeling amazing though, the pillow positioning physio recommended is working!
Had midwife yesterday and my BP was unusually high, no other PE symptoms so hoping its a one off. Going on Friday to get it checked again.
Lots of baby out vibes for mrsH

MrsH - hope baby gets a wriggle on :)
Bunny hope you're not too late
Ally - try and rest up today lovely
BG - crikey thats a busy few days
Margot - glad you're off today. yesterday doesnt sound nice.
Porkchop - yay to being engaged and even bigger YAY for second suprise baby shower :)
sapphire - bless you mum! good luck at the mw and hope hubs feels better soon
Noodle - think it sounds normal. have a lovely lunch
AFM - nothing much to report tbh, baby seems all good. still not heard if antenatal session on tuesday has been cancelled or not. who knows!
26/06/2013 at 14:47
Noodle – movements definitely changed with baby getting bigger and moving about for me.
Pirate Wife – ouch, hope you manage to find a physio.
Duckford – hope your BP settles by Friday.
Twink – that sounds proper poop if they cancel the session – I’m sure you wouldn’t be the only ones assuming that would be going ahead no problems.
So, I’m back from mw – all went well, baby still head down and she said was very close to my pelvis so is clearly getting ready to start engaging. *scary stuff* especially as she followed it up by talking about baby could safely be arriving in 3 weeks. Errr – please don’t say crazy things like that!
