Morning big bumped beauties!
Hope you all manage to keep cool today.
As I said yesterday we're off to SIL's 30th bday period drama party from lunch time today. There's no a/c, but apparently the room doesn't get much sun so should be cool. Need to go and pick up her present this morning.
I was v.productive last night and started eBaying the clothes that have been piled on the spare bed since I sorted out my wardrobe in December last year! Once the spare bed is clear I can get rid of it and get some drawers to put Little Bob's clothes and actually start thinking about getting things out of the loft to sort through the neutral baby stuff. Phew.

Have a lovely party. Sounds like you're getting organised.
Afm - another night of little sleep. Just can't get comfy. we're off to yet another local music day. meant to be 25c later. I've looked out the sun tent so hopefully wont overheat today. H is still asleep. So I had to get up with D. Hope he takes a turn tomorrow.
Hi to all that follow.

BG - you sound busy! Have a lovely party.
Daisy - know what you mean about sleep - I don't think I'll have problems getting used to lack of sleep this time - I'm already there!
All Ok here though otherwise - meant to be hot so that'll be interesting!!

BG - enjoy the party, hope its not too hot for you!
Daisy - enjoy the music, keep cool!
Rhian - morning, hope you have a good day
AFM - been up since 4am, went to the loo then was too hot to sleep and baby was wriggling. Decided to get up and go to the next sale, I was shocked at how quiet it was as I heard they're normally crazy. Got a mixture of boy and girl stuff and have 15 days to take it back so hopefully baby's not too late. Off to see my manager later as someone at work gas given him some baby stuff for us to borrow them at a BBQ thus afternoon. Hoping its not a late 1 as I'm shattered already!
Have a good day all

Hi all. Another bloody 5am wake up today. It wouldn't be so bad, but I woke at 4:45 anyway as my body was clearly anticipating my son waking. Bleurgh.
BG - enjoy the party. Will you share a pic with us after?
Daisy - my H is in bed. He rarely gets up with me and son. Hopefully you can kick him out of bed tomorrow.
R - think its hot everywhere today. Frozen grapes are a good cooling snack if you feel hot!
TT - well done braving the Next sale. Hopefully you will get some good stuff to borrow too!
Me -baby is still big and wiggley. Luckily no creepy hands or feet sticking out again. This weekend I am hoping hubby will get a shift on in sorting stuff out in the house. His crap is EVERYWHERE. I feel like I am living with a teenager. My nesting instructs are starting to kick in and it's just depressing because I can't really sort it out, I have enough to do sorting out baby clothes. Hoping to pack my back this weekend, just so it's done!

Another one who isn't managing much sleep in this heat. H had just taken zoe for her swimmimg lesson, and then will go to the supermarket meaning I can have a lie in. he is going to work this afternoon so zoe and I are going to the cinema as it is just too hot for me outside.
13/07/2013 at 08:35
Bg- sounds like your getting very organised. Have fun at the party and hopefully it won't be too hot.
Daisy- hope it's cooler tonight for you to sleep. Enjoy the music day, the shelter tent sounds like the place to be!
Rhian- hope you find the heat ok today. I might invest in a small paddling pool to dip my feet in.
Twinkletoes- glad you got stuff in the sale and it wasn't a wasted journey. Enjoy the BBQ and sorting through the baby stuff.
Idc- hoping you have an easy day and your h sorts his stuff out.
Today h is out so I'm going to enjoy the peace and quiet! I'm going to sort out the baby clothes and put them away in the drawers as they are just in a pike in the cot
13/07/2013 at 08:37
Oops posted before I'd finished typing! I've got to pop into the local town to look for two birthday presents and I need a fascinator for the last day at term, as one of the teachers is leaving and shes the one you borrow things like that from.
13/07/2013 at 08:40
Jelly baby that sounds like a good idea with the cinema! I went food shopping the other day and spent ages in there because it was so lovely and cool!
13/07/2013 at 08:42
Daisy - definitely H's turn tomorrow. My H kind of got up with A, but really he was up with a nosebleed when A happened to wake so not sure that really counts as now I'm downstairs giving him breakfast whilst H is sleeping. Better be his turn to get up with him properly tomorrow. Have fun at the music event.
Rhian - haven't 'seen' you for a while, hope you and babies are ok.
TT - well done for getting to the sale. May be best to sort the clothes into a girl and a boy bag with the receipt close by so you can just send H or someone else back with the wrong colour. I'm sure you'll be able to take them back after 15 days for a credit note though.
IDC - hope your H embraces the nesting!
JB - cinema sounds like a good plan. Not long for you to go now, seems there's going to be a flurry of BA's soon!
13/07/2013 at 08:46
Missed you there bunny. I'm not that organised, it's taken me over 6 months to get round to listing those clothes! It seems to be the key to being able to get everything else sorted. Have a good day, and try to coo over the little baby clothes for too long!
13/07/2013 at 08:52
BG, have a lovely time at the party and well done on the ebaying.
Daisy, enjoy the music day, hope it isn't too hot.
Rhian, hope you stay comfortable in the heat.
Twinkletoes, sounds like a good result at the Next sale.
IDC, hope H gets a move on this weekend.
JB, enjoy the cinema.
Bunny, enjoy your peace and quiet and sorting the baby clothes.
AFM, warm here already. Face painting at the school fete this afternoon, only two hours thankfully so hope it goes quick. H out most of the rest of the day so just me and the boys, think we will spend most of it inside to try and keep cool.
13/07/2013 at 09:03
Morning all! 39 weeks today :-) only 6 days left and counting. So we should have at least 2 BA's next week
Not managing personals today, am shattered. J was really unsettled yesterday and temp of 40 so I ended up with him in my bed and my H slept on the couch. Think I got 5 hours sleep. Just woke up from an extra hours nap but need to let my H come up to bed now cos hes night shift tonight. He has 3 shifts left then off til after baby comes. The way his shift pattern falls tho means he's going to be due back when baby 9 days old which sucks but not a lot we can do.
Hope everyone is fine, I'm going to go and work out where we can go to keep cool today!
13/07/2013 at 09:08
BG, enjoy the party. I love ebay - hope you manage to get lots of sales
Daisy, know the feeling. Hope you manage to find somewhere cool and comfortable today
Rhian, glad all is well
TT, good work on the Next sale! Think you deserve a rest now!
IDC, hope your H pulls his finger out. Mine is a bit the same. Hate nagging him but can't be doing with things not being done!
JB, hoorah for a lie in!
Bunny, mine are in a pile in the dining room. Going to buy some drawers this weekend - can't wait for it all to be tidied away neatly!
Margot, Enjoy the school fete!
AFM - bad night's sleep - spent two hours of it on the floor of the nursery! Not really sure why, it was just a bit cooler in there. Got heat rash all over my hands and it's sooooo itchy. Was hoping it would cool down next week but doesn't look like it'll dip below 22c. Today I'm off to yoga and then sorting out the isofix and car seat at mothercare.
13/07/2013 at 09:52
Morning all, blimey it's hot already!
BG - enjoy the party today, hope it is nice and cool in there. Good luck with the ebay selling.
Daisy - have fun today, hope you manage to stay out of the sun a bit and can keep cool. I had a bad night's sleep too, rubbish isn't it?
rhian - hope you can stay cool today, glad all is ok
TT - that's good about the Next sale, result!
IDC - I sympathise with you, my H is unbelievable untidy but I think I'm only noticing it now because I don't have the energy to pick up after him as much at the moment. Make sure you get him to sort it out!
JB - enjoy the cinema, sounds like a good idea :)
bunny - have fun organising the baby clothes
M - have fun at the fete, face painting sound cool but hopefully it won't be too draining for you in this heat
Ally - sorry to hear your LO isn't well, poor thing. Hope he is on the mend soon and you can catch up on sleep x
PW - oh heat rash sounds horrible, can you do something extra to keep cool? I bought myself a little paddling pool last week to cool down. Have fun at yoga and good luck with sorting out the isofix.
AFM - it's baking already so I'm hiding out in the front bedrooms as they haven't had any sun yet and are still nice and cool. My current outfit of choice is an old cropped top, a dinky pair of shorts and my slippers. It's not my best look and it definitely won't be making the bump share thread any time soon but at least I'm cool for now! MW app went fine yesterday although little rascal has turned breech. Not a worry at this stage but I'm still doing plenty of yoga stretches on all fours to encourage turning. I think s/he just wants to be the right way up for our scan tomorrow ;)
Stay cool everyone!! x

Update on H - left him upstairs whilst I was in the kitchen washing up and I see he has made 3 Facebook postings, two of which are links to newspaper articles. Went up to empty washing basket and he jumped off bed and said he had measured the window for new curtain pole. Honestly, getting him moving is worse than getting blood out of a stone.
13/07/2013 at 21:10
Update: my first reply got eaten so just just a Quickie to say he got there in the end, and took some stuff to the tip. In my eyes, I would have done twice as much as him today, but by his easily-distracted standards, he's done pretty well.
14/07/2013 at 10:21
Margot - how did the face painting go?
Ally - is J any better today?
PW - hope you managed to stay cool in your room last night
Pop - hope the scan goes well today and you get some good pics
IDC - it's progress I guess!
AFM - wow how hot was it yesterday!? 31 in London where the party was. It wasn't too bad over lunch as the room we were in had a good breeze going through it with all the windows open. The 10 minutes walk there from the station was awful though, I couldn't let anyone hug me to say hi at first as I was so uncomfortably hot. As more and more people arrived for the evening it got quite sticky and hot, so me and H's family kept retreating back to the dining room where we had lunch. It was a fab party and everyone made such an effort with their costumes.
Got home to a lovely bunch of flowers and some chocolates from H's cousin for being photographer at their christening a couple of weeks back.
No plans today, I'm still in bed, H got up with A, although that wasn't until gone 8 as it was a long day for him yesterday. Think the paddling pool is a must!
14/07/2013 at 10:54
BG, the party sounds good, although I don't blame you for keeping out of the way in the evening. Face painting was good, hot and sticky but the children enjoyed it and it raised a decent amount so I was pleased.
Not a lot planned here today, H is in the garden with the boys and I'm trying to sew some reusable wipes but have just managed to put the sewing machine needle through my finger so taking a break till it stops throbbing! We need to pop out later to get some worm medication for our chickens as we've just found worms too, yuck. Barbeque tonight, hopefully it will be a little cooler by then.
IDC, glad your H achieved something yesterday, hope he keeps it up.
14/07/2013 at 11:25
The party sounds like it was a great day BG. J seems loads better thanks. Just playing out in the garden just now, much cooler today and I think its only to reach 22 by mid afternoon thankfully.
Just realised I only have 4 more sleeps at home as a mum of 2 if I have to go in for the prostin on Thursday, scary stuff
