I had a lovely but busy weekend. Start the antenatal classes tonight. I am really looking forward to them, but also a little nervous as I'm sure there is lots I don't know and it could be a bit information overload! We are doing the nct ones so hooefully there will be nice people there. None of our friends have babies so it will be nice to make some friends with people in the area.
baby out vibes for ferbs.

Morning Bunny, have fun at your class tonight, hope you meet some lovely people.
Not a lot going on here, lovely weekend and now back to work, not sure what today holds as I've already had a text asking me to help cover another class so will see what I end up doing.
Baby out vibes for Ferbs!

Bunny - good luck at your class this evening. We found the NCT classes invaluable and have made some good friends already. I have been seeing te girls loads since classes finished and whilst on maternity leave. It's so nice to have like minded people in the same situation. Hope your group are as nice as ours.
Margot - hope that your day at work is ok, glad you had a nice weekend
Thanks for the baby out vibes - hoping that the little one will listen to them soon!
AFM - reflexology woman is coming round at 11am. I am hoping that she will be able to help and get things moving as am getting increasingly frustrated now. I know that I am only a couple of days over which is not rare for first babies but having had the false alarms and stops and starts for weeks, I am ready for this pregnancy to be over! Once I have done th reflexology I may do some baking so that I have some stuff in the freezer to take out for visitors when baby does decide to eventually come.
Have a good day all x

Bunny - Hope you enjoy the classes, weve been going a few weeks now and finding them useful.
Margot - Glad you had a good weekend, hope work doesnt cause you too much hassle today.
Ferbs - baby out vibes! Cant believe you are thinking about baking for guests when they visit after baby! Ours will be told to make themselves a cuppa and bring biscuits if they want them!
AFM - more antenatal this afternoon, i dont mind mondays now, only a half day at work! And only 3 working weeks until ML!! Was watching Bean have a little party in my belly last night all wriggles and rolls on my belly which I havent had much of so it was nice, H always misses it though! Got my bag packed at the weekend, and everything else is sorted so I am physically, if not quite emothionally ready for this baby!!

Bunny - hope the classes go well
Margot - have fun at work :-)
Ferbs - hope the reflexology does the trick!
AFM, had a lovely weekend enjoying the sun. My H went away on a course last night until Thursday so I'm on my own with the 2 kids which will be fun! No plans the next few days, just to survive the next few days would be good lol
Hi to all that follow
A 34+2 (how???)

Missed you there PC - well done on being organised, I should really do the same but still have no motivation

Bunny - hope you have a lovely day and enjoy your first antenatal class, I’m sure there will be some lovely people there.
Margot – sounds like you could have a busy day. Hope you have a good one.
Ferbs – fingers crossed that the reflexology starts to give baby some encouragement to come on out.
Porkchop – being physically ready is a good start! Yay for only working half days on Monday. 3 weeks isn’t long until your ML starts.
Ally – hope they realise mummy needs lots of being nice to for those next few days.
AFM – had a lovely weekend at our NCT classes, our group was lovely and we’ve already arranged the big meet up for when everyone has had their babies for October, which seems a very scary thought! So tired now though, I think 10-4 both days left me more knackered than I realised, (I was in bed by 9.30 last night!) but I’m now definitely feeling loads more confident and relaxed about things. So I’m feeling really positive about the breastfeeding session on Thursday evening. Baby was going pretty crazy last night. I have my 32 week appointment at lunchtime, quite strange from now on I’ll be seeing the mw more regularly. I’ll pop back later to let you know how it went.

Morning bunny, hope your classes go well tonight! I'm sure it will be great! We start our nct one's tomorrow and also feeling a bit nervous! I think it's the pressure to make friends
Margot, hope work's okay today
Baby out vibes Ferbs! Hope the reflexology woman can work wonders!
PC, how nice to have classes on a Monday afternoon! God work on getting your bags packed, something I really need to get on with.
Ally, eek - hope solo parenting goes okay for the next few days!
Sapphire, glad the NCT class was really good. We've got a whole weekend of it next weekend so have taken Monday off work to recover! Hope your appt goes well
AFM - Had a lovely weekend enjoying the sun with my closest friends who were visiting. Got today off work and have received my Mothercare delivery - pram, cotbed, car seat and changing table!! My tiny lounge is now chocka! At final NHS antenatal course tonight and first NCT class tomorrow, so don't think we'll get to play until later in the week. Just doing odd jobs for the rest of the day - could do with popping out to buy some new mat t-shirt though. Only got one top without sleeves!

Boris - who are you waiting to hear from about antenatal? Only I just googled ones in my area for NHS ones, phoned the childrens centre and booked us in.

Porkchop its different in my area I needed to fill in a form telling them a few days n times I could do then ill receive a letter to say what dates I have. X

Pirate Wife – having next Monday off work sounds a good idea. I couldn’t have coped working today if I’d had to.
Twink – welcome to 3rd tri! Slow things down!!
Boris – glad you had fun last night and you’re having today to relax and recover from your excitement.
Noodle – ooh , exciting decorating the nursery!
So I’m back from the mw, everything looking good. Bump still measuring around the 50th centile, making me a very happy person, clearly wasn’t impressed with mw invading it’s space though as gave her a thud. My cheap and cheerful nighties and gown for my hospital bag arrived this morning. So I've added those to my pile of bits I've sorted and the slippers I ordered are in so will go collect those later.
