Morning ladies, sorry I didn't get on yesterday
Bunny: Hope the braxton hicks aren't too painful but hate to tell you they don't mean you won't go overdue. My sister had loads of bh & her son didn't arrive until 40+13, you can never tell!! Hope the yoga was nice
MrsL: Enjoy your long weekend, up to anything nice?
AFM: I think pregnancy brain has well & truly taken over just titled this post Thurs 1st tri!! & I keep trying to use the car key to open the front door & vice versa. I had to have a growth scan yesterday as he'd crossed a centile line (from just above to just below 90th). Seemed like a strange guideline but it was lovely to see him again, & yes it is definitely a him!, & he's measuring fine on the 50th centile, weighing roughly 6lb 2 currently.
I had a horrible mw meeting at home to talk about home birth. I thought she seemed really nice when I met her 2 weeks ago but considering she kept saying how pro home birth that she is she almost completely squashed everything in my birth plan with lots of silly scare tactics & strict rules (which I know for a fact are advice but not rules) & some complete lies. I was so upset on Wednesday & yestrday I was just angry about it all. It looks like she's fully booked next week byt my hubby is coming with me the following week (at 38 weeks) to get our views across. Thankfully yesterday I spent the afternoon with a friend who's recently had a home water birth (am borrowing her pool) so feeling much better about it all & seeing another homebirth friend this afternoon. She also scared me about my iron count. Aparently it was very low when it was tested at 28 weeks (only 1 off what's 'allowed' in a homebirth so now on the spatone & trying to eat more iron rich food as she'll test me again at 38 weeks.
I did, however, book myself in for a pregnancy massage for 2 weeks time which I'm really looking forward to, although it's crazy to think that I might have a baby before then!! 1-7 weeks left (bet he'll be late!!)
Hi to anyone who reads all my message!! x

Hey BK I've just got back from having my nails done and a mooch around the shops and feeling knackered now! H has half day today so when he's finished work were going for lunch and to see his friends new baby. Tomorrow we have our new bed being delivered but not much else which I'm happy about.
Sorry to hear about your appt with the mw but glad you feel a bit better after seeing your friend. Pregnancy massage sound amazing! I'm tempted to book something like that for when I finish work!
