Morning, how are we all?? Hope everyone had a good weekend.
I was up late watching the football then my OH thought I was getting up at the same time as him for work this morning (I wasn't) . So between that , being up late and Baby CA having a party most of the night I've not had much sleep. At least I can have a nap today if I want. I'm going to have a day round the house I think and get some chores done, in amongst some relaxation and maybe a nap.
Hope everyone has a lovely Monday.

Morning CA! Hope you manage to get some rest in today....your ticker makes me v excited this morning....not long now!!
Sending lots of baby out vibes to Vix too!
Had a very busy child free weekend...finished off O's bedroom (just get to get the matching duvet etc now), reconstructed the cotbed ready for baby, washed oodles of O's old baby clothes, found homes for said clothes in drawers and wardrobe and had a general clean of he house....my hips are shot now, definitely overdid it. My parents dropped O back last night and he didn't sleep very well so have a feeling we'll have an early nap today!! Off to soft play this morning first though.
Have a good day all x

Helloooo. I am third tri I guess now, so thought I had better come and say hi.
CA - sorry to hear you're so tired, this world cup is messing with my body clock a bit too. Not cool. Hope you get a nap later.
AFM - so yes, third tri! The one where you have a BABY, scary stuff. I'm a bit tired today too, after watching the football too, but am off work until Thursday. Mum is here today and tomorrow painting the nursery. And my pram is being delivered today, eeeeek. Very excited about that. Not much to report baby wise, nice and fidgety during the day, and quiet at night time, which works for me.
Look forward to getting you know you all, although I am sure some of you are hoping not to be here too much longer! xx

Missed you there Coco. Hope you have a nice day with O and that he's not too tired. Sounds like a very productive weekend!

CA and Coco - hope you both manage to put your feet up and get some rest today.
Gavi - welcome to 3rd tri! Hope you enjoy your days off and get some rest yourself.
Not much to report from me. Did far too much yesterday so taking it easy today, just a trip to B&Q when H gets home to get a new toilet seat as I broke ours on Saturday.

CA - hope you have a nice relaxing day today!
Coco - sounds like you had a productive weekend! Try and take it easy today if you can.
Gavi - *waves* welcome to third tri! Scary isn't it?! Yay to pram being delivered. What did you go for?
Ixia - take it easy today!
AFM - had a lovely but busy weekend (as always!). We went to Royal Ascot on Friday which was lovely but we didn't win anything! Not one single race between us :( we also got sunburnt as the weather was gorgeous and we didn't take any sun cream. Luckily a friend had brought some but by the time I put some on I'd already burnt. I took a chair which I'm glad I did as the picnic tables didn't do anything for my back! Saturday I had brunch with some friends and then had a sit on Chiswick green in the sun which was nice. Then back home and spent yesterday lining-papering the nursery (well H did!). Can't wait to paint it! Hopefully most of it should be done by the end of this week. Then just some shelves to put up in the wardrobe and I can start washing and organising :)
Unfortunately H's car started making funny noises yesterday so got it booked in to the garage tomorrow. I hope its nothing expensive!
Baby out vibes to those that want/need them! X

CA - was that the Portugal v USA game? I managed the first half before I fell asleep! Glad you are having a relaxing day although think you should knock the chores on the head and spend the whole day relaxing!
Coco - sounds like you've been very productive - was it nice going through O's old clothes? You must feel great you got the bedroom done!
Gavi - congratulation little miss third tri! it's definitely the one which feels the most real I think. Yey to your pram coming - pram twin!
Ixia - ha to your toilet seat - and glad you are taking it easy!
Browny - sounds like fab weekend! clever move to take a chair to royal ascot. Hope the car has no serious problems!
AFM - I'm on day 6 of my incarceration at hospital! I can't complain though as have my own room and being monitored all the time as I'm Little Miss Pre-Eclampsia! 34 + 3 today and scan on Wednesday which I am hoping to make! Monday I was at work, Tuesday I'm here but feel like I am being very well taken care of and having lots of visitors which really helps!
Hi to all who follow

CA - Hope you get a nap in today! I was woken by the builders over the road which I wasn't best pleased about!
Coco - Hope you start to feel a bit better soon and enjoy soft play!
Gavi - Welcome!! Enjoy your few days off!
Ixia - Enjoy a restful day!
Browny - ouch to sunburn! hope it feels better today and that the car is ok!
AFM - First day of mat leave today - have a very long to do list but not rushing to do any of it, little and often is my plan!! Had a lovely baby shower on Saturday (organised by some lovely Hitcher friends of mine) and was spoilt rotten. Husband did a bit more work on the nursery yesterday, a bit more sanding and then it's ready for painting, skirting and new carpet.
All suddenly starting to feel a bit real.
Baby out vibes for those who need them... x

CeeJay - missed you! Hope your stay in hospital isn't too bad, been thinking of you lots x
23/06/2014 at 12:23
hey Kapowski - baby shower sounds fab. is it all starting to feel real now you're on mat leave? x
23/06/2014 at 12:50
CJ - glad you are having lots of visitors. I hope you make Wednesday's scan and that they are looking after you.
Kapowski - baby shower sounds lovely! Enjoy your first day of ML - not long to go! X

CA - Hope you have a restful day. I'm jealous of your ability to daytime nap!
Coco - Sounds like a very productive weekend. Hope you have had a good morning at soft play :)
Gavi - Welcome to 3rd tri! Enjoy your time off!
Ixia - Must take it easy in this heat - don't over do things x
Browny - Hope the car is nothing serious. Naughty you for getting sunburnt, hope it's not too sore today x
Ceejay - Own room sounds good. Glad you're not too bored and have lots of visitors :)
Kapowski - Hurrah for maternity leave! Especially in this sunshine.
AFM - I have seriously had enough of the heat. It can do one. I haven't had a proper nights sleep for over a week... I'm exhausted and daytime napping is out as I'm at work. -sobs-
23/06/2014 at 13:55
CA – Napping sounds good! Don’t do too many chores
Coco – I loved your photos of all the washing on the line, I need to do everything you have finished this weekend. Fingers crossed for a nice nap!
Gavi – Welcome to the third tri!
Ixia – Make sure you rest up today
Browny – weekend sounds lovely. Flash your nursery pics when complete!
Kapowski – enjoy your first day of maternity, baby shower sounds gab!
Ceejay – glad hospital is not too bad, you are in the right place and they will take good care of you both
Purplestar – I know what you are saying about the heat, OH rigged the fan up to a remote control so I can switch it on without moving out of the bed bless him!
AFM – sorry I have been a bit slack of late, work has been nuts plus we have just got back from four days in Disneyland Paris which was great. Was nice to spend some time with the girls before baby arrives, lots of walking so I am shattered but in a good way. I had a scan last Monday and all is good, baby is a good size for my dates (4lbs 2oz) and I am seeing them again in three weeks time when we will discuss all options. Baby has moved and is head down which is good, my hip pain has got significantly better over the last few weeks and my bump has dropped quite a bit too, I honestly think baby will be here by 38 weeks at this rate. I am itching to decorate the girls rooms (we are doing a swap with our eldest going into the small room which we will make more “grown up” and Molly and the baby will be in the bigger room) but I cannot really do this until they are on holiday from the 11th July with my parents for a week, once that’s done, baby can arrive!

Ixia - make sure you get lots of rest, especially when it's so muggy!
Browny - had I been at Ascot, it would definitely have rained...I'm not sure what's worse, getting wet or burnt!
CeeJay - you sound like you are coping very well, glad to hear you sounding so positive. Hope little miss has a few days to grow nice and strong.
Kapowski - enjoy mat leave! Tesco's doesn't sound that fun, unless you take a look at some of the cute baby bits, haha.
PS - sorry to hear you are struggling with the heat. I think there might be a storm today, so that might ease it off a bit, Drink lots of water.
NB - Disneyland sounds like fun, hope the girls enjoyed it. Sounds like baby is getting ready to come and say hi!
Pram has been delivered and made up and I am a little bit in love with it....
