Good luck with the consultant Ally, hope he's measuring big enough to convince him of an early induction but not so big it's worrying!
AFM - didn't get back from the hairdressers til almost 10 last night, the colour went wrong so she had to redo it. It was that awkward moment where I could see it didn't look right and was hoping she'd say something before I had to, luckily she did and was really sweet about it.
Work summer party tonight, we're at a rooftop venue and the forecast is rain, rain and a bit more rain so I'm not expecting to stay long. Partners are invited too so my mum is picking A up from nursery and havig him for the night.
Little bob is all good, a bit quieter but I'm used to her having a few quiet days a week now.
Confirmed my mat leave yesterday, I'm working up until 38 weeks then annual leave until EDD. That's only 28 working days including today of I don't use the odd day of annual leave, which I'm hoping to.

Morning Ally, hope the appointment goes well and you get an induction date set.
I'm seeing my consultant at 9.30am, so just after you (or a lot after if they are running as late as last time!) and should know by today when my baby is coming, which I think will make it feel a lot more real! Other than that, the usual tired aches and pains, but it's Friday so at least no alarm clock for two days, and so far no supply teaching requests for next week either which is good.
28/06/2013 at 07:37
Oh that's not good re the hair BG but at least she noticed! I'm getting mine done tomorrow, long overdue - my roots are horrific. Hope you have the fun at the party, shame about the rain though
Margot - let us know how you get on. I'm always thankful of an early appt in the hope that they can't be running too late 1st thing in the morning - hopefully you aren't kept waiting too long
28/06/2013 at 07:44
Margot - so excited that you'll know how long (or the maximum) you have to wait to meet your little girl, exciting!
28/06/2013 at 07:55
It's my last day at work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ally - Hope all is well at the consultants, are you hoping to get an induction date?
BG - mine has a couple quiet days a week, worries me, but I guess its a pattern that is normal for our beans?! Hope the party isnt a wash out!
M - Are you gonna let us know your CS date?
AFM - pottering around tidying my desk and clearing my emails, lunch with some of the girls from work then I am done for 10 or so months! On the downside I have thrush, doctor gave me a pessary but I'm not sure I've done it right? May do a post for the rest of MD to ask.
28/06/2013 at 08:12
Ally - good luck at the consultant
BG - glad you've got your ML sorted. you're doing exactly whati am doing :)
Margot - good luck at the consultant :)
PC - wooooooo last day boooo to thrush :(
AFM - i'm all good. tired as hubs did a out of hours job last night at got in at 2.30. nearly finished the painting of the hall stairs & landing so gonna finish that tonight then hopefully for hubs will be a DIY free weekend. 2 weeeks til Twinklets room is papered then i can flash :) Twinklet seems ok - wriggling around alot. i feel proper full at the moment. not eating alot. big meals scare me coz the fullness is horrible.
hope everyon else is ok
28/06/2013 at 08:15
BG, how lovely to have an end date for work, not long to go now!
PC, hope the thrush clears soon. I'll share the date once I know it, no secrets here!
Twink, hope you get your DIY free weekend.
Morning ladies (waving from the overdue and fed up bench!!!)
Ally - hope the consultant goes well
BG - 28 days will go quick! Glad the hair is ok now. Have fun tonight!
Margot - I envy you getting a date - at least it's something to aim for!
Pork chop - woohoo for last day! No more Sunday night/ Monday night feelings! Enjoy while you can!
AFM - well still here! The plan is see MW tomorrow for 2nd sweep, then again on Tuesday and if need be they will start trying to evict my little man on Thursday!! Having really bad bedtime issues with M - sure its all related to baby but will post separately later when I'm a bit more with it! The longer we wait for baby the closer M's birthday gets so I built her present last night - wooden kitchen - it looks great, knackered me but still didn't shift LO! But glad it's done now!
Hope everyone has a good day!!!

Morning. I wrote a long reply but my phone wouldn't post!
Ally and Margot hope the consultant appointments go well, let us know how you get on.
Bg good job the hairdresser was lovely about the mistake. Fingers crossed that the rain holds off a bit tonight.
h put up a height chart sticker in the nursery yesterday and had bought the Moses basket downstairs. I think he's getting really impatient now and just wants to meet baby. It means I can get to the chest of drawers in the nursery now and put away all the stuff we've just hunted in the cot!
28/06/2013 at 08:29
Mrs h sending you baby out vibes!
My post should say bunged in the cot not hunted!
28/06/2013 at 10:15
I'm back but no date :-( The person I saw today wants me back in 4 weeks to book the date, just seems like a huge waste of time to me as there are no issues other than previous sections. Hope the next 4 weeks flies by! Might console myself with some nesting later ;-)
28/06/2013 at 10:24
Margit, that is rubbish. I got my date at 24 weeks (and no I'm not sharing). Ally - hope your consultant agrees to induce you.
AFM - my friend had her baby last night, 8 days overdue, and for some reason it had put me in a real grump. Actually everything it's putting me in a grump today and I feel on the edge of tears the whole time. Would love to think it was the *** but pretty unlikely.
28/06/2013 at 10:28
Oh that's rubbish you didn't get a date Margot :-(
I got a scan and baby currently estimated at 8lb 13!! Have to go back in 2 weeks and Dr will examine me to see if I'm favourable for induction so I'm still hopeful they'll induce at around 39 weeks
28/06/2013 at 10:36
Ally, fingers crossed for two weeks time and eek at nearly 9 lb already!
JB, look after yourself today, some days are just harder than others for odd reasons. Not long to go now x
28/06/2013 at 17:07
I'm getting rubbish at posting at the moment -sorry!
Ally yikes to nearly 9Ib baby fx for induction
BG glad she sorted your hair!
Margot that's rubbish about not getting date, seems pointless like you say
Porkchop yay to last day! I know nothing about thrush sorry!
Twink glad the DIY is going well, look forward to seeing the room
MrsH out baby out!
Bunny exciting about nursery
JellyB sorry your in a grump today .
AFM my annual leave has officially started today. Next week we start all our antenatal classes, so will keep me busy. Went to mw today to get bp rechecked and its fine today. Sciatica is slightly better, so physio has put me onto a review on request, to contact him should it get worse.
