Morning girls, my last day on the boards probably - unless induction is very slow and boring lol and I get on tomorrow :-)
Have had a rubbish nights sleep thanks to my children! Just about to get up then we need to drive through to my mum's work to drop them off, pick up some magazines etc then hopefully get a nice lunch before going in at 2 for the prostin. Am hopeful it will kick off quickly, had some bleeding and a bit of a show last night so the quick examination yesterday obv dislodged something. CK will keep you all posted :-)
baby out vibes to JB and TT!
18/07/2013 at 07:08
Good luck today Ally, will be looking out for your BA.
18/07/2013 at 07:17
Best of luck Ally. And to you too JB, have a feeling you're very soon!
Ooh, reminds me of 18/4/13 with all these BA's around the corner!
AFM - on the train to work, finally away where I don't have a training course, hurrah! Might actually be able to spend some time handing stuff over to my cover. Bump is all good, although my bowels are not. Apologies for the way TMI before breakfast, I'd normally ask my mw friend about stuff like this but I can't brin myself to ask her about this! My stools are very, very loose. Have been for a couple of weeks now. I'm just as regular as I was before, so it's not diarrhoea. It's just effortless pooing . Is this just a joy of pregnancy I never knew about? I thought it may be caused by the recent heat wave? I really hope you all tell me you've had similar. Apologies again for the TMI.
18/07/2013 at 07:32
Good luck Ally - hopefully things will move quickly for you now!
JB - hope you're not too bored stuck in hospital. Is it hot?
BG - no idea why they are loose and have been fir is long? Try and drink lots to prevent dehydration.
Afm - a but fed up with the heat bcawuse it is making me feel too lazy to do anything because its so hot I would rather just sit around. Will do some ironing this Morning whilst son is a nursery and then that'll be all I can be faffed with! Today is meant to be a real scorcher here. Hottest day yet possibly. Bleurgh.
18/07/2013 at 07:33
Ally - good luck, hope all goes smoothly, cant wait to see your BA!
JB - good lcuk to you too incase your CS is today!
BG - cant say I've had similar, although I did this morning, I'm more hoping its the start of something though!
AFM - awful night, was awake from about 1am til 5am I think, I remember it starting to get light. Thought I was starting to get some niggles with periody type pains on a few occasions while I was laying there, but I expect it was more just the uncomfortableness of sleeping and I was just awake to feel it! I'll have any baby out vibes going, cried on H last night that I just want it over! Off to my sisters this morning while A/C in the car gets fixed, cant bring a baby home in our car oven at the moment, hopefully it'll stay out while were without car!
IDC - I feel your pain on the heat, get up, showered and dressed feels like a struggle at the moment!
18/07/2013 at 07:47
Ally, hope induction is easy and quick for you!
JB, hope you aren't in too much longer before Noodles makes an appearance.
BG, I've also found it easier to go lately iyswim, if it's been going on a while then I wouldn't worry too much.
IDC, I know what you mean about not wanting to do anything.
Porkchop, hope you can get some rest today and the niggles are the start of something.
AFM, another hot day here too. Off to work this afternoon then I need to go and collect a cow costume for our school play (don't ask!) before open evening at school so a busy afternoon all round. All well with baby, hospital a week today for my section date, can't wait to actually know when baby is coming.
18/07/2013 at 07:50
Ooooh so exciting Ally! Hope it all goes swimmingly, look forward to your BA.
JB - good luck when your time comes!
BG, you're not alone, I've been exactly the same!
IDC it's hard going in this heat isn't it?
PC - I am SO with you on being over it. I've had a strange few days, although am starting to feel a bit more 'at peace' again now. Sending baby out vibes your way (so long as it doesn't counteract mine, lol!).
AFM - due a week today, whoop whoop!! Like PC I didn't sleep well through the night and have been awake since 5am. Also just feel over being pregnant and want baby out now (sorry, think I said this yesterday, like a broken record lol!). I'm dropping G to pre school for 9.30am then going to do a couple of hours work in my studio, then my sister (who's due in 5 weeks) is picking me up and we're going for a nice lunch, so looking forward to that.
Realised last night that my half arsed attempt at packing my hospital bag really needs to be looked at - if it does happen any time soon I'll be panicking that I haven't got everything, so will get any last minute bits today (including face spray and a handheld fan!).
Hi to all that follow, have a good day.
18/07/2013 at 08:00
Dinx - good luck trying to find spray and a fan, Plymouth seems to be sold out! Darned weather!
18/07/2013 at 08:22
Ally - good luck today
BG - I've been the same too.
JB - good luck to you too.
IDC - I know the feeling. Got lots to do but can't find the motivation. Cooler here today so hopefully get a few jobs done.
PC - hurry up baby vibes to you
Dinx - have a lovely lunch with your sister. And you manages to get the rest of your hospital bits
Afm - slept better than I have in a long time. Was woken up by a lion king book being thrust in my face and D saying read it mummy. Nothing new with baby. Got my hospital pjs yesterday so I think I have most things now. Just need to pack it. Much cooler here today which makes a change. Will hopefully get lots done. Been neglecting the housework. H is back again tomorrow so I want all the jobs done by then so we can enjoy the weekend.
18/07/2013 at 08:28
I'm soo glad I'm not alone on this one, thanks girls!
18/07/2013 at 08:57
Ally - Good luck! Looking forward to seeing your BA soon!
BG - Not sure on the bowels situation, I know you can have a "clear out" nearer to when you're due but not heard of it any earlier. Hope you're ok!
IDC - Ditto with the heat!
PC - Hope you get some rest today, hopefully somethings starting to happen for you too!
Margot - Busy day for you, hope it goes quickly!
Dinx - Have a nice lunch! Feeling the same re: hospital bag, mines packed but I have to throw in a few last minute things. I've packed leggings and tops for after and I'm thinking it might be too hot to wear them. Not sure what else I can pack though as I'm wearing the cooler stuff every day and don't have a lot of it.
Daisy - Glad you had a better nights sleep.
AFM - Nothing happened last night unfortunately. Did everything the MW suggested other than DTD as its too bloody hot! No niggles or anything so assume it won't be for a while. Apparently my mum was 2 weeks late with me, hoping thats not the case for mine!
Another boring day for me, need to nip and get some food for a few more days... boring!
Have a good day all!
18/07/2013 at 08:58
Ally - good luck for this afternoon, hope it all goes smoothly and quickly for you. Look forward to reading your BA!
JB - hope you are not in for too long before baby makes an appearance x
BG - I've had that for the last few days as well but I think mine has been a bit more of an upset tummy. I'm blaming it on the heat and felt really dehydrated on Tuesday. Keep drinking plenty.
IDC - yup, I'm so over this heat as well. I don't know how I'd be coping if I was even a few weeks further on, I feel massive hot and sweaty all the time and can't be bothered to do anything at all. You're brave to be attempting ironing in this weather!
PC - tons of baby out vibes to you lovely, sounds like you need them!
Margot - roll next week for your section date!
dinx - enjoy your lunch
Daisy - enjoy the cooler weather, hope it makes you productive.
AFM - had a nice day off yesterday with H - went to the cinema as just wanted to be cool and indoors. Have been starting to feel rough with the weather being so hot and there being no escape. Went to pregnancy yoga last night and spent an hour bouncing around on the exercise balls to help stretch out our back, felt amazing. Definitely going to get H to blow my ball back up tonight so that I can carry on bouncing around! Quiet day at work today so planning on writing a lot of my handover *yawn*
18/07/2013 at 08:59
Sorry TT missed you there - come on baby!!
Ooh and I've finally graduated from a blummin' aubergine!
18/07/2013 at 09:04
Must have posted at the same time popcorn - cinema sounds lovely so does the yoga! Really wishing I'd have bought a ball now!
18/07/2013 at 09:26
Ally best of luck with your induction hope its speedy
BG no idea I'm afraid, I've heard alot of people get it just before labour
IDC the weather is lovely but the heat is very tiring
PC hope its very soon for you! Hope car gets sorted soon
Margot when do you think your section will be?
Dinx hope it's very soon for you too!
Daisy hope you manage to get your jobs done today
Twinkletoes baby out vibes!!!
Popcorn sounds a lovely day off
Afm had all the antenatal classes again yesterday, last week next week. Going back next Tuesday to see if baby is still breech and mw is going to see from there I think. Head is still under my ribs for sure so keeping my fx
18/07/2013 at 09:40
Duckford, it will be sometime between 12 and 16 August as they do them in the 39th week but only on weekdays - hoping for earlier in the week but will have to wait and see!
18/07/2013 at 10:16
Ally, lots of luck for today! Hope things move quickly for you
JB, hope you're doing okay
BG, erm... not had that but have def been less constipated in last couple of weeks. I've just been putting it down to a drop off of progesterone in last few weeks.. although you might be right that it's related to hot weather.
IDC, know what you mean. Hopefully this'll be the peak day for you
PC, sorry you had a crappy night's sleep. Exciting about the period pains... no reason why it wouldn't be a sign of early labour! Baby out vibes!!
Margot, hehe cow costume! Hope open evening goes well
Dinx, sounds like it's time for baby out vibes!!
Daisy, haha love the alarm clock this morning. I'm very jealous it's gone cooler where you are
TT, baby out vibes!!
Popcorn, great idea with the cinema. What did you see?
DF, I hope baby moves this week. Have you been doing lots of mad exercises?
AFM - farrrrrr too hot. Also didn't sleep well last night - was up for hours just feeling very frustrated. H is away with work which I don't think helps. I think it's more that I can't see an end in sight. I check the weather daily and it just goes up and up!! 33c next Tuesday apparently! When will it end?!? I want the baby out but not in this weather.
Anyway, today I'm going to go to the Trafford Centre to cool down and finish off my baby shopping. Might have to treat myself to boost my mood a little.
18/07/2013 at 10:21
Good morning lovely ladies,
Ally – hope induction goes well and that today is your last day on here!
JellyBaby – hope you’re doing ok in hospital.
Bridget – no idea about the looseness, I’ve not had anything like this so I can’t help, sorry.
IDC – I know how you’re feeling with this heat, just take it easy.
Porkchop - *baby out vibes* hope baby doesn’t continue to make you too uncomfortable for much longer. You never know it could be the start of something, fingers crossed, otherwise try and get some rest.
Margot – ooh, not long now until you find out when baby will be making an appearance. Hope today goes well.
Dinx – enjoy your lunch. I hope you manage to get a rest today. I got some spray from Boots in the baby section as it was reduced at the time - though with the holiday stuff all being out. I’m sure there’ll be plenty of sprays/fans around.
Daisy – packing your bag will be the easy bit now you have all the bits and pieces.
Twinkletoes - *baby out vibes* coming your way too. I’ve questioned my mum on how late I was too, 10 days, apparently. I’m hoping neither of our babies are as comfy as we apparently were.
Popcorn – enjoy the quiet day at work. Least it’s not a crazy day after your relaxing one yesterday.
Duckford – fingers crossed baby decides to turn before Tuesday.
Pirate Wife – just try and find what works for you to keep cool. Have fun at the Trafford centre.
AFM – was sleeping pretty well until about 5am, I just couldn’t get comfy again after a toilet trip. Baby has been moving in some seriously weird positions, really strange seeing it trying to push out loads more than before - so starting to see the bump move out in all different ways. H has started nesting himself I think, as I just get massive cankles if I try standing for any length of time at the moment in this heat. And H is doing a great job of tidying, I'm so proud.

I have just ironed 2 tshirts, 2pairs of jeans and TEN shirts,. All my husbands suff, not mine.
I am literally melting now and have sat down with iPad, drink and handful of digestives!
