Up early again, am sure that this is natures way of preparing me for what's to come!
Had a lovely relaxing day yesterday, just what I needed after a stressful week at work. Only 11 more days left in the office and counting! Today we are off to the hospital for a "preparation for childbirth" session. Think its a lot of breathing exercises and optimum fetal positions. Hope that we also get a tour of the labour ward but if not I may ask! Then tomorrow my sister and best friend are throwing me a baby shower. Am so excited to see all my girls and eat lots of cake! Then have Monday off work and am off for a potter around London with my mum and sister before seeing Beyonce in the evening!
Baby wise, bump has definitely grown overnight. Lots of movement yesterday which H felt too. Have made a list of all I need to do in preparation for baby ... It's already so long and I'm not even done yet!
Bexy, hope that your last day at work went well and gopher, lots of baby out vibes for you.
Have a good weekend all x
P.s am 34 weeks today exactly, eeekkk how did that happen?!

Morning ferbs.. Glad you had a rest yesterday.. Sounds like you have a lovely weekend planned too... Hope the class goes well.. Sounds similar to the active birth one that me and h went on...
My day yesterday was lovely.. Did no work.. Ate cake and got flowers chocolates and £80 John Lewis vouchers! Now to make a final decision on the change bag I want!! Today I'm having afternoon tea round mums and our mobile beauty lady is coming to give us pedicures.. Lovely.. I am in desperate need of getting my flip flops on these elephant feet!
Will pop back x

Ferbs - I'm up early too, although that is normal for me!! Hope the class goes well and you enjoy your baby shower. Don't worry too much about the ong list you will get there!!
AFM - I had a nice relaxing day yesterday finished off with a lovely reflexology session. I have now finished off all my last bits of preparation including pedicure and waxing!!! So I am now basically waiting!! We are going to the launch event for a new cleft support group today, so we are looking forward to meeting some other mums and dads that have been through the same of us - other than that I am startgin operation baby out with a vengeance!! Please send any spare baby out vibes my way!
Have a lovely weekend

bexy - missed you there!! Sounds like you had a great last day, enjoy your pampering today!
27/04/2013 at 07:43
Al! You sound ready to go now! I don't think I can brave the wax! The event today sounds good.. Hope you find it helpful... Not long now hey!

Ferbs - I'm not sure hospitals give tours any more due to mrsa infection risks etc. I know ours doesn't. Sounds like you have a great weekend planned. Wear comfy shoes around London!
Bexy - enjoy spending your vouchers! Any idea which one you'll go for?
Alocin - hope you find the support group useful. My friends little boy has had the operation. You can hardly tell at all now.
AFM, Mr R booked us a holiday for October half term last night. Very excited. Will definitely have a big motivation for weightless when baby is here now!
Mr R is golfing all weekend so not sure what M and I will do. Will pop over and see my Mum in a bit and might get M's feet checked and mooch around Mothercare. I have my niece sleeping over tonight too and had a crazy idea of painting our (mouldy) porch.

Rusty! Where is the holiday? Sounds great! I'm toying between pacapod or babymel! Going to get myself to
John Lewis tomorrow to have a final look irl before I decide!

Ferbs- wow you have a busy day. Take it the concert is seated? Enjoy.
Bexy- sounds like you had a good send off! I have a pacapod this time. Can't remember name of it but you can carry it like a back pack or a normal bag. Seems very practical.
Al- enjoy the launch group. Really good you have everything in place already. Imagine it helps a lot.
Rusty- we're probably about tomorrow if you're bored.
AFM- had a lot of pressure last night. Actually thought things might be happening as it felt similar to before I had S but all subsided! Might go for a walk somewhere today and see I I can get him moving again. Somehow we all slept in til 8 this morning which is unheard off!
Have a good weekend ladies

Bexy - sounds like you had a good day yesterday and have a nice pamper day today. Enjoy spending your vouchers!
Al - lots of baby out vibes to you now that you are ready! Hope that you meet some nice people today at the launch and you find it useful
Rusty - Definitely wearing my converse on Monday! How exciting about the holiday, I always find that it helps to have a goal when trying to lose weight. H and I are also thinking of going away October as hopefully baby will still be breastfeeding so it will be easier to travel than when it's a bit older and starting to wean! Will probably book when baby arrives. Where you guys off to?

WH - yes we have seated tickets! My mum made me laugh and said that we should phone the O2 to tell them I am pregnant so that we are moved to a seat with lots of space. Told her that I am only pregnant not disabled!! Hope that your walking gets baby moving again. Do you feel ready for baby to come now? If so, have some spare baby out vibes!

There are so many of you so close to the end, I get excited reading all your posts about getting stuff done etc.
Rusty - holiday sounds a great idea. We're going in 1 week and I can't wait, not booking anything for after baby though as are splashing out on a big holiday at Easter.
As for me, well I had rather a rude awakening this morning from Zoe. She decided it was a good idea to get the nest of glass coffee tables and put them in front of the sofa, then attempt to jump off the back of the sofa and over the tables. Needless to say this did not go well and she now has cuts all up the back of her legs. Poor thing was shaking she was in so much pain. A dose of calpol and some mummy cuddles and a couple of hours later she seems a bit better, although she does now seem to have confused me for her servant.

Ouch, JB that sounds hurty!
We are of to Majorica. Can't remember exactly where but AI 5* for a bargain considering its half term. Upgraded to a suite too so we will have some living space if we need to the the kids to bed earlier etc. very excited! :)
WH, was expecting to wake up to a BA text from you this morning!! X

Started personals and MD ate it so just a quick one from me today!!!
Just a quick hello to say I am still here, been a bit quiet lately as I've been so busy but feeling so rough too!
On ML so hopefully will be on a bit more regularly till my section on Friday (how did that come round so fast!?)
38 weeks today and feeling a bit sad that my last pregnancy is nearly over but can't wait to meet her soon!
I hope everyone's ok and baby out vibes to those who want them!
