Hope everyone is ok, has been very quiet recently!
Well I am now officially off work until bump is born. Had a dodgy few days with my back which meant I was off sick from work. Those coupled with not sleeping etc saw a return of my vomiting and a horrid vomit on public transport experience, and then I almost fainted on the tube on the way to work yesterday. Just made me realise that I have struggled in to work for a while and whilst that was fine I really just can't do it any more. So when I got to work I had a chat with my boss and my Gp. As a result I am now signed off sick until my annual leave that I had planned prior to my mat leave. It is like a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders and I had the best (albeit still interrupted and uncomfortable!) sleep I've had for weeks. So today I will be pottering around the house, may treat myself to some box set viewing!

JJ-so pleased you are off. You haven't had it easy. My last day tom, wahoo! Having to work super hard but so relieved to nearly be off.

Hi ladies, can I join in here now? I'm only JUST in third tri but OMG I'm in THIRD TRI!! Woop!
JJ sounds horrible for you, but I'm glad your work have been understanding and you can get some rest, it must be a weight off your mind.
Rio - Last day tomorrow! Amazing, it must feel SO real now!
AFM - So, here I am in third tri which I never thought I would make! I've got a lovely long weekend planned as H and I are going to do our Christmas shopping on Monday at Bicester Village, we're staying nearby on Sunday night so its like a mini holiday!
We painted the baby/kid's room (2 step kids every other weekend) this week so this weekend I will be making sure its all cleaned nicely and getting bedding sorted etc. Also got some family over to watch boxing Saturday night. I woke up this morning thinking it was Friday which was a blow when I realised it wasn't. So cant wait for a lie in!
I've been generally ok throughout my pregnancy, I'm almost waiting for things to start really hurting! Only 10 weeks to go until my last day at work...the countdown is ON!
Hi to anyone who follows! x

JJ - I hope you get lots of rest before bump arrives!
Rio - have a lovely last day at work
Rod - welcome to Tri number 3....the place where babies are born.

JJ - glad you're off now, the vomiting sounds awful. Enjoy pottering about the house.
Rio - yay for it being your last day tomorrow!
Rod - Welcome to 3rd tri!
FM - I hope all goes well with your scan tomorrow.
AFM - I'm now on maternity leave (whoop, whoop!) and have managed to get lots done today with the kids being with MIL. I've been having lots of BB this afternoon and have a sore back so I'm hoping my bath will help calm things down. My hospital bag is sort of packed - the stuff I need has been dumped on top of the bag and not packed properly, so I'll get that sorted tomorrow as well as make up the cot and Moses basket. Then I should be done!
