Baby out vibes for SG, Wispa and wW. Come on babies!
It's my baby shower today, not until 4.30 and I'm having a dilemma about what to wear cos of the stormy weather. Having a nice time with my mum, although I'm starting to get ready for her to go home again. I've done 48 hours!

Hope everyone is well and that we've had some baby out action through the night? Lots of baby vibes out as ever to Wispa, SG and WW xx
Have a lovely baby shower this afternoon Imp :) Hopefully the weather will dry up by this afternoon to help make your clothing choice a little easier. Glad you're having a nice time with your mum, how long is she staying for?
We finally exchanged on the house yesterday afternoon! We're moving in two weeks...hurrah!! Got lots of packing to do now and have an awful lot of cr@p to throw away.
I'm feeling a bit crampy today, like when you know AF will probably arrive the next day. It's exciting that my body is starting to get ready but I so want baby to stay inside until after we move! Baby stay in vibes to me lol
Hi to all who follow, have a lovely weekend xx

Baby in vibes for you fig.
Amazing news about the exchange though, I'm so happy for you. Exciting times ahead, a new house and a new baby! :)
My mum is here until tomo evening. A while yet, lol!

Morning all! Finally dipping my toe into third tri - still can't believe I'm here!
Imp - have an amazing baby shower - hope the weather eases for you. It's throwing it down here :(
Fig - great news about the house! Baby stay in vibes to you!
Baby out vibes to those that need them!
AFM - 28 weeks yesterday and starting to feel like a proper pregnant person now. My back aches most of the time and if it's not my back it's my hips. Didn't sleep well last night because of my hips and I have a dream genii plus have put a quilt under me. I just don't know what else to do! We just got back from Spain yesterday which was lovely and relaxing although I did feel restricted as I couldn't do much in the heat and with my back! Probably just what I needed though.
Hello to those that follow! X

Hi imp, I hope your baby shower goes well. The weather is weird here to, I have a similar clothing dilemma as I'm meeting a friend in town for lunch. Have lovely day.
Great news about moving gug. Hope it all goes smoothly.
Sorry you're not sleeping well browny. Glad you enjoyed Spain though.
AFM I think I should be here now (28+4). Exciting to have made third tri. All good with me, busy birthday weekend this weekend and next, so looking forward to them.

Welcome to 3rd tri Browny and raincloud!
Baby out vibes to SG, WW and Wispa, and baby in vibes to Fig :)
Imp - enjoy your baby shower! Apparently we are due storms, currently it's warm and humid :(
Fig - yay to exchanging on the house!
Browny - sorry you're not sleeping well, but glad you had a relaxing time in Spain.
Raincloud - enjoy your next 2 weekends!
AFM - had a relatively lazy day yesterday and decided to make up for it today by getting up at 8am and doing lots of chores, but I'm already feeling like I've overdone it so I'm on the sofa aching and tired :( I need to learn to chill out!

Evening all! Boring but productive day here. Day out climbing cancelled due to weather, so we thought we'd take a drive to the Cotswolds instead. Cue torrential rain and us turning round 5 mins from home. Used the day productively and expensively, ordering new sofas from John Lewis, buying cot mattress, despairing at the idiot teenage numpty assistant in Mothercare, and coming home and ordering car seat base and loads of other stuff for half the price on Amazon. Hubby is now making pizza dough, I've made an apple and pear crumble to pop in the oven later, and we'll try to dodge the showers tomorrow and at least get out for a walk.
Still no news on the 3 expected arrivals?? Come on SG, Wispa, WW!! We're all waiting xx
Imp, hope you're having a lovely afternoon with your shower x
Figaro, that's great you've exchanged. New baby, new house. How exciting!
Browny, glad you had a lovely time away. Hope you feel less achy soon.
Raincloud, happy birthday weekend(s)!
Ixia, hope you have a nice relaxing evening to make up for the busy start x

Evening ladies! Baby out and baby in vibes all round where applicable!!
Imp - Hope your baby shower has been lovely, got mine in 2 weeks, can't wait!
Figaro - loving the exchange news, hope the rest all goes smoothly!
Browny - I enjoyed my trip to Spain too when preggers, shame we had to come back! Hope the pain eases for you.
Raincloud - yay for birthdays!
Ixia - get those feet up!!
Barefoot - I also found a numpty MC assistant today, must be the day for it! Hope you get out and about tomorrow.
AFM - having an emotional day today, had our first parentcraft session this morning and that combined with the aforementioned numpty resulted in a breakdown in the middle of Mothercare. Feeling a bit overwhelmed I think. That combined with a lack of sleep (more being disturbed by the Mr waking up at 3 and not going back to sleep!) has resulted in many tears today! Got a bag for hospital though and have decided on car seat, just need to order it now and get a few more bits for hospital bag (nappies, cotton wool and maternity pads mostly).

Hi, sorry I've not been around very much at all. Everything is just so hectic just now with work!!!
Baby out vibes for Wispa, Spikey and WW
Imp - hope you had a lovely time at your shower and found something to wear in the end. Its all very exciting!!!
Fig - baby stay in vibes for you lovely!!!! Yay to finally exchanging. Its so exciting for you, get packing and moving!!!! I'm pleased that this is all sorted and you can start planning the move properly now.
Browny - welcome to 3rd Tri, can't believe how quick your pregnancy is going. Sorry you've had so many aches and pains. Glad you had a nice holiday though, even if you couldn't do as much as you would have liked.
RC - welcome to 3rd Tri to you too. Hope you enjoy your busy weekend celebrating brithdays!!!
Ixia - its good feeling productive but its really tiring too. Take it easy!!!!
BF - you sound like you've been very productive. Well done with your purchases.
Kapowski - those hormones really are hard to deal with!!! Glad you're having a productive weekend getting stuff sorted.
AFM - I've been AWOL. I have no idea what I'm doing with my time!!!! I'm feeling brilliant but starting to get really uncomfortable now. Sleeping really is a hit or miss. I've tried everything - loads of pillows, some pillows, no pillows, duvet, no duvet. No matter what I'm just struggling to get comfortable. That said, if this is the worst that I've got to put up with I'm doing pretty darn well!!!!
I had my baby shower/leaving night out with my work last night. It was so lovely and I really enjoyed it. I'm supposed to finish on Wednesday but I'm toying with the idea of staying on until Friday to tie up loose ends. My first few weeks off is annual leave so it would give me 2 days more to carry on until next year which might be more beneficial to me when I've got a baby and I'm working. I'll see how I feel this week but I would be working my actual hours or possibly leaving a bit earlier if I do stay on the extra 2 days.
Anyways, hope everyone is having a lovely weekend xxx

Imp - hope you enjoyed your baby shower!
Fig - hope baby stays put until after the house move!
Browny - welcome to 3rd tri :) Hope you enjoyed Spain.
Raincloud - welcome to 3rd tri, hope you have a nice weekend.
Ixia - hope you have a slightly more relaxing day!
Barefoot - glad you still had an enjoyable weekend even if your plans did change!
Kapowski - boo to MC numpties!
CA - glad you enjoyed your baby shower. I can sympathise with the being uncomfortable!
Hope the absence of Wispa, SG and WW means there will be some baby announcements soon!
AFM - apart from the pregnancy aches and pains I am not too bad, just really hoping baby doesn't keep me waiting much past my due date! I'm not very good with waiting and hate not knowing whether to try and do lots in the next few days incase baby comes early or to make the most of potentially having 3-4 weeks before baby comes!

Imp, how was your baby shower lovely, hope you had lots of fun.
Fig, fantastic news on the exchange. Lots of baby in vibes (not least because I'm stealing all the baby out vibes for myself!)
Browny, welcome to third tri! A holiday in Spain sounds lovely, I'm very jealous!
Rain cloud, welcome to third tri too! Happy birthday weekends.
Ixia, I hope you had a sit down after posting that. You're very pregnant, take it easy!
Bf, sounds like a productive day, even if it wasn't what you had planned. Hope you make it out today.
Kapowski, have a huge hug lovely. Darned pregnancy hormones.
CA, glad yo had a nice time at your leaving shower. Is so hard to know what to do work wise, you could pop at 38 weeks and value some time off, or you cold still be hanging on at 42 weeks wishing you'd worked longer.
Vix, the uncertainty sucks monkey bums. I so know where you're coming from.
Afm, still very pregnant. I'm so pissed off. Everything hurts, I can't do anything anyway as I cant really walk, but I can't make any plans in case the baby comes so keep just waiting around then the baby never comes, and probably will never come, I think I'm just going to be pregnant forever. I know I'm being ridiculous, but this last couple of weeks have felt like 2 months. Get out Attila!
Baby out vibes for Wispa and WW too, and happy birthday to Wispa today. X

Imp - how was your baby shower? Hope you had loads of fun.
Fig - congrats again on the exchange! So good when you know it is definitely happening! Have you already started packing? It always feels good to throw out all the old stuff as well.
Browny - welcome to 3rd tri - sorry to hear your back playing up. Horrid to be in pain. Hope you had a lovely holiday
RC - welcome to third tri! was it your birthday this weekend?
Ixia - definitely need to chill! With all the aches, pains and stresses of pregnancy you need it!
BF - rubbish your plans being ruined by weather, but yey to buying stuff. Always feels good to tick bits off the list
Kapowski - ahh to your meltdown - hope you are feeling a bit better now. It's such an overwhelming time. Glad you got your bag for hospital. In my head that's one of the things that makes it feel real.
CA - sorry to hear you've been missing out on the sleep but pleased you are feeling fab. Wow to leaving work soon - ha I'd just go on Wednesday! Glad you enjoyed work leaving/baby shower
Vix - wow so close now. Hope you are getting lots of rest and relaxation
SG - lots of baby out vibes - come on Atilla!
AFM - feeling very sorry for myself with SPD/PGP - and on crutches but got phsyio on Wednesday so hoping that may alleviate some pain! Been really busy with work which is why not been on here much but stating to hand over my cases so hoping the pressure will ease off - don't think I'll last until 26 July!

Evening everyone, especially SG and Ceejay who I didn't "see" yesterday. SG, do we need a shoehorn to winkle that baby out??!
Ceejay, sorry you're still hurting, roll on maternity leave!
I'm very very achy today, but my own fault. Decided to go for an 11km walk over the Cotswold hills, with a midway stop in a village for a pub lunch. Shattered and sunburnt now, but feel at least I'm trying to keep active and healthy. I can see myself waddling and whining about groin/pelvic pain all day at work tomorrow, but no regrets!
