So i am lying here in bed doing some of my "positive visualisation" for birth when i get a *gush*!!!!! Ran to loo and looks like either my waters are going or its a show at least. Have put a pad on and will wait and see what happens. Maybe my prediction of a 23/4 birth will be right! Not sure whether to be excited or bloody terrified after last time. Can i ask for some vibes please???

Sounds promising MM! Vibes aplenty for you! Hope u r all ready just in case it's the 'real' thing!
AFM - only just woke up so will be back later to check for any developments! Good luck. Xx

Woo! Exciting! Fingers crossed it all goes smoothly this time. Different baby, different labour remember. Keep us updated!
Morning Mrs H.
AFM- first proper day of mat leave today. Not got much planned really which will be nice. My bump is making a lot of noise this morning. Think baby must e blowing bubbles! Given up taking raspberry leaf tea capsules as I can barely take then without chucking up. Will get bouncing once tomorrow's leaving meal is out the way.
Have a good day everyone

Wh.. Day one of maternity leave sounds ideal to me.. I need to get on the raspberry leaf train soon I guess..
Afm.. Day off today.. Was at London marathon yesterday..watched my brother finish in 4 hours.. I was an emotional wreck.. Was lucky enough to hey VIP grandstand tickets courtesy of sil who works got virgin.. Free food and drink All day and a glimpse of prince Harry! So today.. I'm having a lazy one... Coffee with a friend and the food shop at the most I think!

Maisie - how exciting, keep us posted!
WH - enjoy your first day of mat leave
Bexy - sounds like a fun day yesterday, don't blame you for having a relaxing day today :-)
AFM - had a nice relaxing weekend as my 3 year old has been away all weekend. Looking forward to her coming back later though. Currently lying in bed with J watching Thomas the tank, he just said 'baby, kiss' which was very cute and he pulled my top up to give bump a kiss
Hi to all that follow

MM - just replayed to your other post! Loads of vibes - good luck x
Mrs h - have a good day, I will also be checking for developments!
WH - it's my first official ML day too, it feels more real today, and very nice! Well done on reaching Ft, that's just fab - enjoy your day with noisy baby!
Bexy - well done to your bro and how exciting about your glimpse of Harry! I'm more excited about the free food and drink though ;)
Ally - enjoy seeing A again, glad you got to relax this weekend, don't rush out of bed this morn!
AFM - had 8 hours of ante natal classes yesterday - so useful but a little overwhelming if I'm honest! H left feeling excited but I was feeling a bit daunted for the first time in pregnancy... so apparently I'll be giving birth and then responsible for a tiny human in the next few weeks, Holy Cow! Not sure why but I had a little cry last night - I'm still so happy and excited but guess my chilled attitude to it all had to have a dip at some point! Sure the hormones don't help either. All well with baba, he or she is hicoughing loads ATM and very pushy/wriggly which is so lovely.
Going to my friends for tea tonight and think I need to get into this cleaning / nesting business this morning, it doesn't really come naturally to me!
Have a good day all,
22/04/2013 at 08:10
mm...hope it's something happening for you, keep us posted!
Mrs h....hi, hope your good?
WH...yay for 37 weeks, must be such a relief passing each milestone with baby still tucked up inside!
Bexy...well done to your bro, sounds like a lovely weekend, enjoy your chilled day today!
ally...bet you've missed your little one and will be glad to have her back, enjoy Thomas the tank and bump kisses!
Lamby....wow, 8 hours? I always feel a bit overwhelmed after an episode of obem let alone a whole day of classes! sure the nesting will kick in soon, if not then get your H to do it!!
Afm...another one on first official day of ML, taking the kids to school in a bit then coming home, tidying, resting and a bit of food shopping and NOTHING else! (she says!!)
All fine baby wise, exhausted after a weekend spent walking through Richmond park for hours on Sunday and saturday was spent walking to and around two local parks so my legs are sore today!!!!
pop back later and baby out vibes to all who need them!

Good luck MM!

Morning all, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.
MM- Eeek! Vibes to you and looking forward to your update. But queue jumping over me...tsk!!
Mrs H- Have a good day and catch up with you on here later.
WH- Enjoy your maternity leave and your meal tomorrow.
Bexy- Good on your brother, I admire him! Bet it was a lovely day watching it all going on.
Ally- Aw, what a cutie your J is. Bet you can't wait to see your 3 yr old later.
Lamby- Blimey that's a lot of ante natal info in one block. Not surprised you felt overwhelmed. Glad baby is being acrobatic.
Libby- Yay to starting maternity leave. Don't overdo things tidying etc after your weekend walking!
Hep- Hi and congrats again. Hope your family are all well and happy.
Rusty- Hello, saw you pop by.
AFM- Well I'm 3 days overdue now, grrr. Had a nice weekend to take my mind off things though. Two of my friends brought round a picnic lunch on Sat and then H and I went for an ice-cream and a stroll on the common afterwards as it was sunny. Yesterday we went for a walk round the arboretum again and the spring colour cheered me up. Woke up with the birds this morning so it's going to be a long day!
Have a good day, and baby out vibes gratefully received :-)

MM - Eeeek, sounds very promising and exciting! 23rd April birthdays are the best - come on baby! Lots of baby out vibes for you. good luck at triage, let us know how you get on
WH - Enjoy your first day of ML and taking it easy. Good luck with the RL tablets
Bexy - Enjoy your day off, coffee and shopping sounds like bliss right now whilst I am sat at my desk in work!
Ally - Think I missed your move to 3rd tri over the weekend - Hi! Hope that you are feeling weel. That's so sweet of J, he's obviously very excited about the baby's arrival!
Lamby - I can empathise completely with the hormones taking over and the tears flowing - had the same on Thursday after a really stressful day at work. Glad that ante natal class was useful if not a bit overwhelming. We start our NCT class tomorrow and then have the NHS one on Sunday. Until then, I have enjoyed living in a blissful state of denial!
Libby - Another one on the first day of ML - enjoy! Sounds like you need to relax after all that walking!
Hep - Hi! Hope that all is well with you and baby Iris!
Rusty - Hi to you too!
Gopher - Hopefully all the walking this weekend will help the baby move and get things started! Lots of baby out vibes for you!
AFM - Had a super busy weekend and am paying for it today! Feeling very tired and have loads of pressure down below, no doubt from all the walking we did. Was so lovely to have the sun out, made such a difference to my mood! Now I am back in work though am not feeling as uplifted! Counting down the days until ML - only 15 to go!!!
Have a good day and lots of baby out vibes for MM and Gopher x
22/04/2013 at 09:54
MM - oh sounds promising - let us know how you get on at triage x
MrsH - morning!
WH - enjoy your first day of mat leave!
Bexy - sounds like a lovely day yesterday. Enjoy your day off
Ally - wish i could get rid of my 3 year old for the weekend. Enjoy having him back x
Lamby - what on earth did you do for 8 hours?? Hope it was useful?
Libby - also enjoy your first day of maternity leave!
Gopher - lots of baby out vibes for you x
Ferbs - hope the next 15 days fly by x
AFM, we had a busy weekend of gardening on Sat and then decorating yesterday. I am a broken woman . My bum cheeks seem to have born the brunt randomly and are killing me . We had to do it though. More decorating next weekend to finish off and then that's it for me. I just feel so guilty leaving H to it.
Nothing really planned for this week. Me and A are off to town in a mo to pick up a few bits. I have the day to myself tomorrow, no plans for weds, thurs I have the mw and Friday I am supposed to be at the hairdressers but think I may delay it a couple of weeks so it doesn't need done so quickly once baby is here. I am sooo bored. I really need to have this baby. Rustys other thread has convinced me I need a pedicure though so I think I will try to book one in this week.

Well panic apparently over. Was on the monitor for a while - all ok. They did an examination and took a swab but they dont think its my waters. Possibly lots of discharge (sorry tmi) but i am still not convinced really. Will just have to sit tight and see what happens i guess. Feeling deflated and a bit of a div.
22/04/2013 at 11:45
Don't feel a div! Hope it is the start of things and baby will be here soon xxx
22/04/2013 at 11:57
Not a div at all, I'm sure 100s of woman have similar things happen.
Hope things get moving soon x
22/04/2013 at 12:18
Yeah i guess so. I just felt so sure it was happening. I have had tightenings all morning too. Nevermind. She will be here when she is ready!
22/04/2013 at 12:26
You are not a div at all! Hope that it is the start of something at least and things get moving for you soon x
