Hey ladies, grumpiest mare in the world here! Had a good cry last night! Really fed up. My legs/back/bump/feet hurt permanently. If I don't eat I feel sick, if I eat I get horrific heartburn. Walking brings me to tears half the time. No signs of anything happening and Harry goes tomorrow. And I'm due back at work (just 2 days) w/c 28th April and want every single day now to then to be with my baby! And then weirdly I've ended up stupidly upset because I haven't heard from my sister in 10 days. I was so worried and concerned when it was her turn, dreamt about her, offered to do her housework and her shopping and just stayed in touch and I feel miserable about it and now don't even want to tell her if baby *does* come because I've now got all emotional about it!!
Right. Sorry for the moan. Need to be positive. Going to get up and do some work, then consultant appointment, and I think this afternoon I'll start that blooming baby quilt I've got all the stuff for and never did get around to!
Really hope everyone is well, lovely to have 3 new folk from 2nd tri. And Bertie - are you still there?!?! :)

Aww Hun I'm sorry, you still never know you could get a surprise today xxx concentrate on you right now, forget yoursister. Xx
Afm- growth scan and consultant today, I came to bed early last night with a headache and iv woken with it too, I'm hoping it's just a headache and jot blood pressure related! Iv got to be seen on the maternity assesment ward today for a check up so I guess I'll find out then! Xx
Just ducking in while killing time at the hospital waiting for breakfast and hopefully the peadiatrician so we can be discharged this morning.
Counter, sending you so many baby out vibes, not sure what Baxter is playing at but definitely time for he/she to make a move now!! Doesn't the baby know you have a plan to stick to?
Hope everyone else is doing well. I miss this thread!x

Counter have a massive hug. It sounds as though the world is weighing heavily on you right now. Will the consultant be talking to you about a plan? Might you feel a bit better after that? Do you know with your sister, I would just call her. She's just had twins hasn't she? I'm not making excuses but maybe she's absolutely swamped? Don't let it longer and upset you, just give her a call.
AFM I'm doing ok again today, had some pains in the night but not too bad. Which, in comparison to normal is absolutely fine and dandy with me!
Had a shitty email from a client overnight though which has put me in a funk this morning so I'm going to have to deal with that first thing. Mardy bum client!
09/04/2014 at 07:50
Missed you Monnie and flossy!
Monnie I hope you get some reassuring news today. I'm glad you're at the hospital today so you can be checked out. Vibes being sent.
Flossy I hope you get home today.

Monnie - you're having a crap time of it hun but it always feels as though they're on the case, they're keeping a close eye on you thank goodness. Hope the scan goes well and you get the info you need, and consultant appointment is useful. What time do you have those? Let us know x
Hey Flossy - escape from there soon as you can lol! Hope everything is fab and you're feeling okay. Looking forward to seeing updates x
Imp - THANK YOU for the hug! I'm really a bit emotionally wobbly at the mo and don't want to end up crying down the phone!! I know she's busy, the twins are ten weeks, I just thought one text or a reply to my emails would turn up at some point. I expected I'll hear today now I've b!tched about her!! Sounds like it's good you had a less-bad night than usual so you have a bit more energy to sort that arsey client, good luck!! :)

Hi ladies. Just managed to get online for a bit, can't believe I missed so many BA's hope your all doing well M is now six weeks old and time is going soooo fast!!! She's got terrible colic at the moment so we don't get much time to ourselves but she is just amazing I can't explain to you how much love you feel for this little person
Baby out vibes for those who need it! Miss you all xxx
09/04/2014 at 08:21
Counter, I'm sorry her so fed up. I can't imagine how it feels to have such a short countdown back to work, but rant away! It's what we are here for. Sorry I can't offer any good advice but it can offer you vibes. I'd feel the same if it was my sister. We facetimed pretty much daily in the weeks leading up to her section in February, so I expect her to be just as concerned for me.
Monnie, good luck with the consultant today, I hope the scan shows baby is the perfect size and everything is just fine. They'll probably be keeping a close eye on BP and headaches, though, but hopefully it's unrelated and no PE!
Hiya Flossy! Hospital out vibes for you now ;). I hope you're enjoying newborn cuddles and aren't too knackered.
Imp, glad y slept better, but your 'Mardy bum client' sounds awful. Hopefully there will be nothing like that at work today.
AFM, day 3 of Easter hols at the museum! Swelling wasn't as bad yesterday, which was great. Still put my feet up when I got home, though. I had the joy of being sexually harassed by a drunk member of the public yesterday at work. He leered at my boobs and and told me I had a 'lucky hubby'. It was gross. I had security escort him off site. He was bothering a young mom and her 5 children, too. Actually trying to hit on her and tying to interact with her kids individually. Totally not on. I'm hoping to be doing to art installation today. We are having children make Vikings to populate our map of the Viking world. It's really fun! Oh and we have greyhounds visiting the museum today! Actual greyhounds! I'm going to come home and Wispa will think I've been cheating on her.
Welcome to Ixia, I didn't get a chance to come back on last night, but I see she's come join us as well :)

Hi NLH, hope you're doing well, despite the colic. I'm jealous of your cuddles!
09/04/2014 at 08:56
knock, knock - can I come in???
Counter - sorry you're having such a crappy time. Sending positive vibes to you and I hope things start happening for you soon xxxx
Monnie - I hope its just a headache too. Good luck with your appointment today.
Flossy - congrats on your arrival. Hope you're doing ok xxx
Imp - good that your pains weren't as bad last night but still not good that you're struggling with them. Hope your angry client isn't too bad when you get in touch with them.
NLH - lovely to see you. Hope you're getting on ok xxxx
Wispa - glad the swelling was better yesterday. Stupid drunk man!!!!!!! Your day sounds really fun. Hope you enjoy it.
AFM - I believe I'm now 3rd tri. How did that happen!?!?! I've got the mw today for my 28 week appointment slightly early. I'm going on holiday tomorrow and need a 'fit to fly' note from the mw for the airline. Apart from that Baby CA has been a lot more active the last week or so which is great especially as I've got an anterior placenta.
I'm off work today (woohoo) but I've got a list of stuff to get done but nothing stressful. I'm having lunch with my friend today who is pregnant and exactly 3 weeks behind me. I haven't seen her since new years eve and haven't spoken to her other than texts either. Will be nice to catch up and see how shes getting on.
Happy Hump Day everyone xxxx

Counter sorry your feeling so crap. Baxter is really holding on in there! Am I right that you get induced Saturday? Or have I imagined that? It's sometimes best to have a good old cry and get it all out. Also with regards to your sister I would be upset too. Maybe she is just busy with the twinnies and doesn't want to bother you? Hope the consultant goes ok today. Ooh you will have to post a pic if you do make that quilt :)
Monnie good luck for today. Do you more scans booked? Hope the headache is just one of those pregnancy things!
Hi flossy lovely to hear from you. Glad your getting on ok and get discharged shortly!
Imp hope the pains have eased now. Stupid client, exactly what you want first thing! Hope your day is ok though.
Nlh lovely to see you here. Glad all is well with you and little one. Hope the colic eases soon. I will take some of those baby out vibes if you don't mind :)
Wispa glad the swelling has improved. Ew that man sounds vile, hope you're ok. Your day sounds lovely and full of fun things, enjoy!
Afm had some pains in the night, hoping it may have been the start of things but sadly not lol. I'm off to Bury today with mil for lunch and a nose in the shops so will be nice to have a day out as I don't have many plans this week.
09/04/2014 at 09:05
Oh missed you there candy apple! Welcome to 3rd Tri :) hope the midwife goes ok. Where are you off to on holiday? Sounds like a nice day planned, enjoy catching up with your friend, having a pregnancy buddy is lovely.

Hi Bertie - Hope you have a lovely day shopping and lunching with your mil today. A quiet week sounds good!!! We are off to Fuertaventura (sp) tomorrow lunchtime. Looking forward to a chilled out week.
Trifle - hi lovely. Fingers crossed for something happening soon!!!!
09/04/2014 at 09:21
Hi trifle baby out vibes for you!
Candle apple oh that sounds lovely, I am very jealous! Think it will be a while before I get another holiday!
09/04/2014 at 10:23
I have a sleeping baby so thought I'd have a nose, baby out vibes counter and Bertie! Bertie I'm intrigued where you are, I'm not too far from bury.
09/04/2014 at 10:35
Hey Isis, vibes are appreciated! I am in Haverhill, kind of in between Bury and Cambridge. Where abouts are you from?
09/04/2014 at 11:44
Counter, sending baby out vibes to you and Baxter. I hope you get a lovely surprise later today.
Monnie, good luck with your appointment with the consultant. Lovely that you get to see your little princess again!
Flossy, hope you're home by now :)
Imp, boo to mardy clients! Tell them to do one. Really glad your aches aren't so bad today.
Wispa, glad your swelling isn't so bad today, that's great news. Yuck to the drunk man, I'm glad security dealt with him. Kn0b.
CA, hiya! Lovely to see you here :) Good luck today with the mw. Have a lovely lunch with your friend and a fab holiday!
Bertie, enjoy your day out with your mil, lunch and a mooch around the shops sounds lovely.
Trifle, hi! Baby out vibes to you too.
AFM, had my whooping cough jab today, ouch! My arm aches a bit now. Went to maccy d's for pancakes and a hash brown afterwards to cheer myself up. Couldn't face walking down the steep stairs to use their loos afterwards so nipped into John Lewis to use theirs instead and whilst there I thought I'd enquire about the estimated due date of the Peach 3s...they've only bl00dy arrived!! So I paid and it's coming on Tuesday!! I'm SO excited!! If my super furry cat wasn't moulting so much right now I'd be pushing him up and down the street in it by Tuesday evening! Haha
Hope everyone is having a nice day, half way through the week already :)

Wispa, thanks for the invite to rant! I have been pretty darned grouchy. I don't think anyone would believe how much I mess around and laugh at home but every time I'm on here it's pregnancy woes this and pregnancy woes that, lol! That man at your work sounds bloody repulsive. Glad you had him removed. The actual work (depraved drunks aside) sounds really lovely!
Hello there Candy Apple, long time no see! Good to have you here. Very glad your hols have come round. I remember you weighing up going and I think it's a great stage to go away, you're going to have such a lovely time! Hope the catch-up was nice, sounds long overdue.
Bertie - was it a good lunch? Lovely weather for a wander. Are you getting much swelling from the walking or not too bad? What sort of pains were you getting? I'm intrigued/excited!
Trifle - maybe the pains will come to something? How many weeks are you now?
Figaro - the jab blooming hurts doesn't it?! And doesn't stop hurting for about a week, from my experience. Boo. Great news about the pram. I am often joking about popping Lily in pram/sling etc and everyone looks at me like I'm a proper freak, so I'm loving that someone else is on the same wavelength ha ha!
