I tried to get back on yesterday, but kept getting bombarded by people texting and coming to visit.
Baby out vibes to Lamby and Bexy! hope something happens for you soon!
Absolutely nothing to report here. LO is still happy to sit in there and showing no signs of moving :-(
Hope everyone has a good day!

Morning! Baby out vibes RKB!
Nice and sunny here which makes a change!
Have given up on the NHS referrel and phoned my friends dad who is a physio and does acupuncture. He's going to see me for free on Monday evening and has described a few exerciese for me to do in the mean time. It was awful yesterday so fingers crossed I can get even a little bit better will do! Lovely evening with friends last night, and un beknown to us we got free dinner! They were trialling a new tapas menu, but we just ordered thinking it looked nice, but it was free for the first night! Very glad its friday I am whacked!

RKB - loads of baby out vibes to you! Are you in full on eviction mode at the moment trying everything going?!
PC - so pleased that you manage to get something sorted in absence of the NHS referral. Hopefully the referral will come through shorty though so treatment can continue. Bonus about your free meal!
AFM - had a really bad nights sleep so am still in bed resting! Off to meet some of the NCT girls for lunch and need to do a few errand in town after. MW appointment went well yesterday and she said that baby was fully engaged - I can certainly feel it with lots of pelvic pain at the moment. She did say however that in first pregnancies the baby can stay there for a while so I could be here for some time more!
Have a good day all x

Rkb! Baby out vibes for you too! Have a good day.
Pc... Good news about the private referral! It's not what you know hey!
Ferbs.. Have a lazy morning and enjoy your lunch! I'm still in bed too.
Afm.. Had reflexology yesterday... No twinges yet tho! It felt lovely and relaxing though... Today I'm meeting a friend in town for lunch and fitting in a bit of housework when I can bring myself to get up! X

PC - that's good you'll get someone to look at your sciatica! Hope you get some relief soon. That's fab about your dinner! I went out for dinner a couple of weeks ago with the girls in my office and because my colleague knew one of the managers, we got the staff discount!
Ferbs - I'm not really in full eviction mode. I kind of feel bad trying to make baby come out if they're not ready. I've been taking Raspberry Leaf Tea, bouncing on my ball, long walks, and if H doesn't annoy me, sex. But thats it! Sorry you had a bad night! Hope you have a fab day! I'm not convinced my baby's head is engaged, but my mum said it might not until I actually go into labour!

Sorry, missed you Bexy - fx something happens for you! Enjoy your day!
one of my friends is coming round this afternoon for tea and cake (she makes amazing cakes!)

I'm hoping this will envoke the law of sod. I'm really looking forward to seeing her and eating her yummy cakes that I'm hoping I might go this morning and have to cancel.
17/05/2013 at 09:47
Bexy - enjoy your lunch. I need to also get motivated and do some washing etc but am feeling too lethargic...!
RKB - I think that there is a lot of sense in having the attitude that baby will come when he or she is ready. Yum yum enjoy your cake! If you do go into labour you will have to tell your friend to save you some for after!

RKB – sending you baby out vibes! Enjoy your cake, I HAD to bake some banana cake yesterday as we’d got bananas going overripe, I mean what else would I have done with them?!
Porkchop – ooo, free tapas can never be bad! Glad you can start some physio while you are still waiting on your NHS referral to come through.
Ferbs – enjoy a lovely lazy morning and lunch!
Bexy – the housework can wait that little bit longer while you rest up in bed!
AFM –I started the iron tablets yesterday, I don’t know if it’s them or me imagining it, but I start to feel a bit dazed after the morning one, will see how I go over the weekend though, see if my body gets used to them. Annoyed with myself too, I got confused with days of the week and basically I missed putting my repeat prescription for my gaviscon in on time and I’m probably going to run out over the weekend – so I’m going to have to buy a bottle for back up! On a more exciting note - I finished my little bear for baby! Pretty pleased with it myself.

Good morning ladies!
RKB - your fully cooked + are making me laugh. I hope you don't have to add too many numbers to the end of that and your baby is here soon!
PC - I do love a free meal! Hope the physio will help when you finally get it.
Ferbs - yay for fully engaged baby! Enjoy your NCT lunch.
Bexy - I think I am far too ticklish for reflexology.
AFM, work day today, though I have managed to do two loads of washing and generally faff about on the computer for 2 hours (and submit 2 VAT returns!!) Baby was mega wriggly last night, to the point that it was waking me up.
Probably taking M to soft play after school to meet up with Sofa Leopard, Nala and I think Gingey Wife.
Mr R is at a conference tomorrow and golfing on Sunday so I am hoping I might get over to see WH and have cuddles with Sebastian!
I wrote an actual list for my hospital bag last night so might tackle that this weekend.
I have started pumping and hand expressing to try to get some colostrum to harvest. Had vague success yesterday, in that something came out. Not nearly enough to be breaking open a sterile syringe but something. Hope it'll get more. I've bought some pots this morning to keep the syringes in in the freezer should I have any success.
Hope you all have a lovely day.

Sapphire - there really is nothing else for it when you have over ripe bananas!! I now really want a banana...and we don't have any in the house :-( such a cruel world I live in! Take care if you're feeling funny with the tablets! And that is one epic looking teddy! And in my fave colour too!
Rusty - For some reason i'm unable to put a zero in post's when I start them...i can use all other numbers though! But I felt the fully cooked statement should continue on now that i've started! Send on some cuddles from an internet weirdy if you see WH and Sebastian! He's just so scrummy looking! How come you're having to harvest the colostrum? I've seen that a few have been doing it, and I wasn't sure why.

RKBHow come you're having to harvest the colostrum?
It's recommended if you have Gestational Diabetes. Hopefully means you can regulate baby's blood sugars instantly rather than having to wait for your milk to come in. My milk never did come in with M so to see colostrum coming out is a massive hurdle for me!
17/05/2013 at 11:55
Oh right! That makes sense! That's great news if you're getting results this time round! :-)

Well this looks quite today. Normally by lunch time we are least onto double pages. I suppose there has been alot of grads.
Rkb, Baby out vibes to you
Porkchop, Hope you feel better after monday and it doesnt ruin your weekend.
Febrs, Hope you sleep better tonight. I normally find a good night follows a bad one.
Bexy, hope things get moving for you soon.
Saphire, Thats cute!
Rusty, Not long left for you now is it?
Afm, baby mega wriggly, its actually painful now. Benn a busy week so looking forward to a nice weekend off with no plans. Got to start getting organised. I have my last growth scan on mon. When i went to the midwife tues, my uterus was measuring 42cm, so im ecxpecting her to have turned into a chunk. Also getting my section date next week. Wahoo.
