Morning AR! It's your insomnia buddy here to join you! I'm actually quite chuffed its 5am and not 4am! :)
It must be a rather emotional day for you and your H. Its good he has the day off and it sounds like you'll all have a fabulous weekend! Was it lovely looking back at all the baby photos? I hope today goes nice and quick and you can then get on with celebrating with P and your family and starting mat leave!! Woo hoo! How's the bump pain?
I've been feeling uber crampy (like period pains) deep down for lots of yesterday avo and woken up with similar discomfort. BH are also regular and uncomfortable. My bump hurts in one spot which i suspect is muscular but even laughing or sneezing is making me whince! I remember less than 2 weeks ago saying I was happy for this baby to be late so that I could enjoy some down time...I take it all back! Mother Nature is working her magic and I'm defo physically and psychologically ready for baby SP now!! Quiet day today although meeting a friend for tea and cake this afternoon then H and I start our final official weekend of two-some plans ie eating out, cinema, walks!

Ha I'd be too scared to queue jump so get a shuffle on Isis!!! I thought the pains should be high up in the uterus rather than low down to be a contraction? I don't think its that...I reckon its all just general aching and preparing! Not sure about cinema yet - fancy that monuments men. I quite films based on true stories!
I bet it was just lovely looking through the photos and seeing how your little lady has changed and grown! It's such an incredible time by the sounds of it! So glad you don't have to rush to work and can enjoy the morning together!

So there is some correlation between the pains and the BH....the pain is mild and the BH aren't lasting long....you are scaring me a bit though....I take it this can happen days in advance or even settle down to nothing again??

Aaaaw ABC you are a leap year baby!! And it's your 30th! How are you celebrating this weekend? I hope you have a fabulous few days and enjoy being spoiled!
No loss of plug or show here hence me thinking these pains won't come to much! Thanks for the vibes although it feels really alien that I've reached that point!!! Argh!!!

Morning guys, massive congratulations to mrs v and loads of baby out vibes to Isis.
Ar- happy birthday to poppy and good luck with the hand over, must be such a relief to be finishing.
Sweet pea- how exciting, as a first time mum I am definitely not an expert but sounds like something might be happening!
Abc- have a fantastic day and hope you get spoilt rotten!
Not much to report here, could have joined you earlier if I realised tou started early as been awake forever, rash spreading and itching nicely, and got stopped twice in town yesterday by random strangers remarking how enormous I am!! Desperately want to make it to 10th march ( c section date) but have had enough of being pregnsnt now! Twinnies nice and active and spend plenty of time wrestling, hoping they aren't quite so active when they come out or god help us!
Baby out vibes to those that need it and happy Friday! Xx

AR - special day for you today then, lovely stuff! I always get a bit emotional on/around my son's birthday. It's a real 'take stock' time of year for me, much more so than my own birthday.
Sweetpea - definitely low down pains are often the start and the other stuff might not creep in until active labour commences. But, as you know, that stuff can happen for some people weeks before any real action. Let's hope yours is not a drill! Some people have suggested to me that late world be good but I'm really not up for that and totally understand you feeling it's now TIME. :)
ABC - I'm with you, let your bro have today and you have tomorrow. Are you doing anything over the weekend to celebrate? Kitchen is nearly there then, marvellous!
Work was awful yesterday, we couldn't pay our salaries, including mine. Just tough on my department and I was pi$$ed off because I predicted this and raised it formally 5 weeks ago and was shouted down. Ah well. Hopefully today. Leaving for work now so we can start checking the status of things.
Anyone else get to my kind of stage and get paranoid about period pains/back pains/twinges? I didn't have a natural onset of labour with Harry but am hoping I will this time with baby having engaged so early and being in the right position etc. Plus all my fears about my old cobweb-ridden womb needing to evict Baxter early! I don't panic but I get lots of tightenings and twinges and back pain similar to my previous labour pains and I can't help but wonder... Even though I've AGES to go yet! :D
