hope you all managed to get some sleep last night!
I was feeling very perculiar last night from about 6pm onwards, feeling sick, horrendous pelvic pains and lower back ache. I was glued to bouncing on my ball and using a hot water bottle. Guess this is going to be a regular occurence from now on!
I've got MW appointment at 11.15 so hoping baby is making his way further down, I can only hope that this is what the pains are.
Hi to all that follow ( not many of us now!)

Gem hope last night was a good sign! Hope the midwife goes well
Another awful sleep for me, this is brutal, I'm running on nothing! I think all in all I maybe slept for 4-5 hours but woke at least 5 times. Nevermind 11 more days at work for me after today. Baby wise, movements are getting pretty sore now as there's clearly not much room! Oh and still breech x

Sorry you both aren't sleeping well.
Hope the pelvis pain is a good sign Gemini. Good luck for your mw appt.
MDD - that sounds rubbish when you still have work. Is the baby supposed to have turned by now?
Afm - not much to report baby wise. My H is insisting on having a pillow between us at night in case he rolls into us. But it just makes me feel really trapped with that and the maternity pillow! Like building a fort every night. Our cot is being delivered today which is another item ticked off. Got work today and a day off tomorrow to go Xmas shopping in Westfield.

Good Morning everyone!!!
Gemini- Fingers crossed the midwife has good engagement news!!
missdeedee- I don't know how you are managing so little sleep and working still! do you have any holiday to can use to finish earlier or take a long weekend?
Little dude- Im not surprise you feel a bit trapped! Im sure he wouldn't do any damage even if he did roll into you! Can you whip it out the way once he has fallen asleep?!
When i woke in the night for a wee, I thought I felt a bit damp between my legs and though "crap, is it happening" then realised that i was just a bit warm and sweaty! ha ha!
Ive just written a list of everything that need doing over the next couple of weeks and there is more than i realised! doh!
We managed to book on a tour of the hospital Saturday morning, better late then never!!

Morning all, will get back on for personals later.
Had physio this morning and now have an attractive belt to wear. It's lovely when walking but really painful when sitting. I'm going to be an expert at whipping it on and off. Been told to avoid stairs, have 4 flights at home, oops, next step is crutches so fingers crossed I don't get to that stage.
Hope everyone's ok x

Hiya NLH, of course you know me :-)
Hiya custard, Mrs Bass, Mrs P, little dude,HF and anyone Ive missed!
Back from the MW but am a bit confused. She had a good prod and poke, looked at my notes and said, ooh baby is further down than last time. In my notes last time she had put 3/5 eng, this time she put 4/5 eng( I looked when I got home). So surely based on what we know about how they write it, 4/5 would be further OUT than last time? Unless she writes it as eng and not as palpable? So infact baby is heading further south? Who knows, ha! Other than that all ok, told her my spd isn't great at the minute, which she said its because baby has his head in my pelvis! So now its a waiting game, could be 2 weeks, could be four, could be anywhere inbetween, who knows?!
Ive got my next MW appt in two weeks when I'll be 40+2, then if nothing still, she'll come to see me the following tuesday at 41 weeks (17th dec) to give me a sweep.

arg, that's scary, hasn't Vivixon had her's? which makes the list even scarier!
NLH- Welcome to 3rd tri! It gets scary here! (in the nicest possible way! :-) )
HF- glad u are feeling a bit better today. How long is your course of antibotics for?
Gemini- from what she said i would assume its 4/5 engaged rather than palpable. was it the same midwife?
I thought they would do a sweep on or nearer to your due date!
Well ive got my snacks for my hospital bag so just waiting for my nursing bras and then it is ready!
Went to meet my friend for coffee and went to Mothercare as they had a 20% off everything. I've realised that Im pretty low on sleep suits so i got some of them and some milk storage things and some nipple cream! all at a bargain price! Then I went to Mamas and papas as they had 30% off so i got some more sleep suits!
think i have enough now!

Hiya Mrs Bass.
Yes same midwife i've seen the whole way through. She said they cant do a sweep until im technically a week late at 41 weeks. She said its common practice now through the Nhs but guess it depends on your midwife? Not sure.
Sounds a good bargain shopping day for you then! :-)
