hope we are all well. Any interesting plans for the weekend?
H was meant to be doing some DIY on Saturday but has now decided he wants to go and view some houses (ours is nowhere near even ready to go on the market yet) so am in a bad mood now as still have no curtains up in our bedroom, a shower I can't use as he hasn't put sealant round the bath, and I need to get W some new shoes and am now not going to be able to get to the shops as we are going to look at houses :(
ive also just been informed the MIL is coming to visit this weekend so need to tidy the house today. on Sunday going to visit BIL and his little boy so at least that should be nice for W to play with him.
sorry for the rant, starting off the day in a very bad mood!

Morning JT - sounds like you'll be busy! Hope your mood lifts and you still have chance to relax.
I've got an antenatal class at 2, quite looking forward to it :-) it's my stepdads bday today so round to my mum's tonight, currently making a cake with a veg patch theme! Not much planned for the weekend other than a spa treatment on Sunday morning whilst H has a golf lesson :-)

Morning BE you will have to show us a pic of the cake , sounds very difficult!
Enjoy your antenatal class

JT oh dear, tell your H to sort his priorities out! Sounds like you have a busy few days ahead, try and chill at some point if you can.
BE your weekend sounds much more relaxing, especially the spa treatment, lush! Hope antenatal class goes well.
AFM vets with my other cat this morning for annual jabs, then coffee with my aunt followed by midwife app, should be kept busy! Tomorrow H has decided to take me for afternoon tea at the hotel where we had our wedding reception. Surprisingly romantic for him, I'm very excited!

JT- Sounds like you have a busy weekend planned! Hope you manage to relax at some point.
BE- A cake flash is definitely needed when it's all done. Enjoy your antenatal class and spa treatment on Sunday.
AFM- Feeling much better today. Had lots of sleep (all be it broken) last night so woke up feeling bright as a button. Have the midwife at 10.30 so only in work for an hour before I toddle off there. My last Friday where I finish at 5pm today as next Friday (my last ever Friday!) I will be finishing at 2pm. Felt like I was never going to get to mat leave a few months ago but is going really quickly now!
H is also treating us to a nice meal out tonight to make up for him being a grade A pillock ;-) xx

Morning all, just wanted to say thanks for all the congrats, seems those baby out vibes were pretty powerful!
Will be lurking over the coming days/weeks/months as you all get ready to meeting your LO's.

Popcorn- Sounds like a busy day for you! Major browny points to your H for being so romantic :)
BG- Still can't believe your little girl is finally here! She is just so adorable. Hope you are recovering well and enjoy all of those new born cuddles! x

PC afternoon tea sounds lovely. How sweet of your H
Sam enjoy your meal tonight. Have you managed to have a proper chat with him yet? I think sometimes its easy for them to forget how much our bodies are going through so they think everything should carry on as normal
Hi BG congratulations again.im impressed you're back on MD so soon, I'm assuming its because having a toddler and newborn is easy peasy and you've got lots of free time with nothing to do lol! She is absolutely beautiful, and I love her name, I'm pleased you managed to pick one you both are happy with

Jellytot- hope you manage to de-stress soon!
Bumpenvy- your spa session sounds lush!
popcorn- What a nice treat from your H you lucky thing! i didnt get back on y.day, my birthday is the end of october, its the big 3-0! Although not that we have a baby on the way, turning 30 doesnt seem a big deal in the slightest!!
Sam- only 1 week left!! amazing! enjoy your meal out!
BG- hope you are enjoying lots of new born cuddles!!!
Not much planned this weekend, H has a gig tonight and tomorrow night. Off to my friends who is due 2 days after me for dinner tonight so im sure there will be lots of baby talk! Have the hairdressers tomorrow and I think I'll get cracking on a fancy dress outfit for my friends 30th in a couple of weeks! A bump really restricts fancy dress options!!

Popcorn - Enjoy your afternoon tea, sounds lovely :-)
Sam - Glad H is treating you, have a great evening.
BG - Hope you're enjoying being a family of 4!
Mrs Bass - Have a nice evening full of baby talk! Good luck with finding a fancy dress outfit.
Cake is finished! Planned to make a start and then get dressed etc whilst sponge was cooling but here I am, 3 hours later, still in my dressing gown! Will post a pic in a min, apologies in advance because they always come out massive!

JT- We had a big talk yesterday. I do think because I've had such a straightforward pregnancy and carried on with most things as normal he doesn't realise how much of an impact it has on you physically/ emotionally and how tiring it can be at times! He was very sympathetic and apologies lots. Now if he carries on he is getting a slap round the head.
BE- That cake looks AMAZING! I can't believe you actually made that!! You are one very talented lady indeed.
Just back from the midwife. All fine with baby, MW tried to let H listen to the HB through the pinnard but he couldn't hear her. She said try using a toilet roll tube so no doubt H will be trying to attack me with toilet roll tubes over the coming weeks!

MrsBass- is it a theme fancy dress or just anything? I'm rubbish at fancy dress ideas
BE that cake looks brilliant. I would love to be good at cake decorating
Sam- glad you managed to have a talk. Can you really hear the heart beat through a toilet roll tube? I never knew that.
AFM finally finished cleaning the house . Because I've got a CS date booked I really don't want to go into labour before that as I would be so unprepared so am starting to get paranoid about causing labour to start by doing too much physical stuff . So that's my excuse for sitting down for the rest of the day now! I could do with getting the ironing done but have decided we will just have to wear creased clothes over the weekend.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend

JT- I have no idea about the toilet roll tube! You can apparently sometimes hear if later on in pregnancy if you just put your ear to your belly. I obviously can't confirm this as it's a tad difficult to get my ear to touch my belly! The MW I saw is quite batty so I don't know how much to believe her hahaha. H was tried to put the pick up on his guitar on my belly before today though to try and listen so no doubt we will be trying to toilet roll tube trick soon! I will let you know..
p.s creased clothes are the future. I only iron for work and special occasions ;-) Sit back and relax.

BE- that cake looks brilliant!!! how talented are you?!!
Sam- I'll have to try out the loo roll trick with H!!
Jellytot- the theme is Labyrinth!!! a friend has lent me a masquerade mask and i have a tshirt dress that matches so im going to Fabric land to see if i can get some glittery tule to make a puffy skirt! With a bucket load of glitter mae up, i think it might work!!
Ive been sat on my back side all say!!

Hi ladies! Ive been very naughty and not been on for a couple of weeks. Got my last week at work next week. I'm absolutely knackered. Really not looking forward to a full day of massages, waxing, manis and pedis tomorrow. I'm so ready to finish! Hope everyone else is okay? Who's next to pop?
20/09/2013 at 20:00
I did start a thread thus morning but it must have been the same time as JT.
Manic day at work yesterday and today! I've had a lot of twinges and pains the last 2days so will keep my eye on it. Baby still wriggling around LOADS though, keeping me awake at night!
Getting rid of I's dummy tonight so prepared for a rough night, staying strong at the mo though!
