Hope there's some news from MrsH today.
Busy day ahead of me with pretty much back to back meetings all day, the first one is wih HR to give them my Mat B1 form and confirm mat leave dates, so starting on a high and have hairdressers tonight so finishing on a relaxing high too. It's just the bit in between I'm trying not to think about!
Hope those of you not at work enjoy the good weather

Looking forward to seeing a BA from MrsH soon!
BG - Hope you have a good day and what ever happens in between is as good as the start and end of the day :-)
AFM - Sorry for not getting on yesterday, I literally don't get a minute to myself with my temp around. I've been getting into work for 7am and leaving at 6pm to try and get stuff sorted before she gets in and after she's gone. My feet and legs are absolutely massive due to swelling, the only shoes I can fit into are my Uggs and flip flops. I was starting to get a bit worried about it yesterday as I hadn't felt baby move but I think I was just so busy I didn't notice. Seems to be moving a lot today which is good. Today and tomorrow left at work and then I finish for maternity leave!
Have a good day everyone

I have pretty much the same as you work wise, penultimate day for me though thank goodness! Enjoy the hairdressers, I'm getting my eyebrows sorted at lunchtime, not sure that will be relaxing!
Not much to report baby-wise! I think I have thrush which is wonderful so I'm gonna try and get to the docs so I dont have to pay and I'm not actually sure if I can take anything? Taking my replacement to meet my clients today so a bit busy, then last day tomorrow and all I should need to do is clear my desk and emails! whoop!

Missed you there TT, countdown for us! Am impressed youve gone a week longer than me, I am really struggling this week so glad I am nearly done!
27/06/2013 at 07:36
Hope all the meetings aren't too bad BG, at least you get to relax at the hairdressers later :-)
Nothing much to report here, I'm finding I just come on here every morning and moan about being in pain :-( I feel like baby has moved down so don't know if that's whats making the pain worse. Am actually hoping at my growth scan tomorrow that baby is massive so I can beg for induction earlier than due date
Hope everyone else is well

Missed you there TT and PC
Hope the swelling goes down TT, at least its only 2 more days left then you can relax a bit
PC - the doc should be able to give you something, pretty sure canesten is fine in pregnancy. Enjoy your 2nd last day at work :-)
27/06/2013 at 07:44
TT and PC - Hope your penultimate day is ok. Do you have anything planned for next week yet?
Ally - you poor thing, you are allowed to moan here y'know. Not too long to go now sweetie.
27/06/2013 at 07:46
BG, at least your day is sandwiched with the good bits!
TT, hope the swelling goes down and nearly the weekend.
PC, woohoo for last but one day!
Ally, hope you get your induction date, not long to go now.
AFM, off to work this morning, Jacob is having a taster morning in the school nursery but I know he'll be fine, he's so excited. Will have a heap of marking for tonight, then consultant for section date tomorrow!
27/06/2013 at 07:56
BG - Monday and Tuesday H is off so we're having a few date days. Wednesday I plan to pack my hospital bag and write my birth plan as I've still not got around to it. At that point baby can arrive any time but it can't come until then! he he!
PC - Yay to nearly finishing work!
Ally - Hope you start to feel better soon
Margot - Exciting about the section date tomorrow!
27/06/2013 at 08:15
BG - were having our roof done! Monday H is off so will prob just potter about together, Tuesday I will go see my gran, wednesday my sis is taking me out for breakfast. Not thought about the rest of the week - watching Wimbledon!

Bridget – a bit of pampering sounds a good way to end your day. Hope it’s not too jam-packed a day.
Twinkletoes – not long to go now. Make sure you’re putting your feet up when you get home!
Porkchop – enjoy your penultimate day!
Ally – I don’t think you do moan every day, and you know what even if you did, here’s the best place for you to be doing that!
Margot – have a good day at work and hope Jacob enjoys his time at the nursery! Exciting that you’re so close to knowing your section date.
AFM – mw went well yesterday. Baby still head down so all in the right direction still and she mentioned baby was close to starting to engage. With that and her making various references to baby could arrive at 37 weeks, suddenly made it all seem very real – I mean that’s only 3 weeks away! I’m fully expecting to go over though, so I’ve just ignored her but had made me realise I really want to actually finish putting my hospital bag together which I started ages ago. H is getting better from the bug that has been going round, but has managed to pass it on to me! *Not impressed* So I'm resting up to try and get rid of this quickly!
Oooh - meant to say I'm hoping the lack of update from MrsH is exciting news ahead!
27/06/2013 at 11:11
Morning all! Baby out vibes for MrsH!
BG, hope your busy day is going well! Exciting about confirming mat leave dates!
TT, Glad baby is having a busy day. The quiet ones are always a worry. Might be worth ringing mw anyway if the swelling is sudden.
PC, oh I reaaaalllyy need to get my eyebrows done! Hoping they’ll last another fortnight until mat leave! Hope you manage to see a doc, I’m not sure what you can take either.
Ally, Hope you’re coping with the pain, not long to go now. x Good luck for your growth scan tomorrow
Margot, Hope Jacob has a fun day! Good luck for your cons appt tomorrow
Sapphire, that’s exciting! Why did she think the baby would arrive early? I’d love to be a week early I think – I’ve got a real fear of being induced. Hope you feel better soon x
AFM – Have booked an NHS physio appt for next Weds which is fab, so just hoping hips don’t get worse before then. When I booked she recommended putting a duvet under my sheet so it’s really soft and OMG, I really didn’t want to get up this morning! Unfortunately, I was woken up at 6am by what I thought was the cat licking my face. It wasn’t, it was a nose bleed! Ooops.

Pirate Wife - tbh I don't think she does, she's clearly just qualified as a midwife - she's no where near as good as my other one, so I think she was trying to focus on "in 3 weeks it'll no longer be premature" but focussing on that just confused me as to why it would come that early. Glad you managed to get a physio appointment - the duvet under the sheet sounds amazing, I may have to try this! Boo to the nosebleed too!
27/06/2013 at 12:37
Sapphire, I think you are right that she is just preparing you that babies don't all arrive at 40 weeks. I remember being told that I was fully engaged and it was unlikely I would make it to my due date. Zoe arrived 11 days late !
AFM, I had a rather confusing phone call from the dr last night with regards to my blood test that was done in Tuesday but fortunately my midwife rang today and explained it much better. Basically my iron storage levels have risen a tiny bit, but not enough given how much iron I am taking. My basic iron level has gone from 10.4 to 10.6 which is still in the lower end of normal but combined with the lack of storage is probably why I am feeling so rubbish. I am currently on 3 iron tablets a day but my body really isn't tolerating them so have gone down to 3 on alternate days and 2 on the other. The midwife has also suggested adding in spatone to see if that helps, although my levels got down to 10 with me taking spatone everyday so I don't hold out much hope.
On a more fluffy note, I have washing line full of babygros and vests which look very cute.

Sorry for lack of personals. I'm on my phone.
Fingers crossed MrsH.
I got signed off work today til the date I start my mat leave. So relieved. My spd pain has had me in tears all week. I can barely move.
Feel really bad leaving work in the lurch but I can't manage anymore. Especially now with H working away.

Afternoon everyone. Sorry for lack if personals, got a short time out of class for planning so just popping on. Baby hasn't moved as much the last couple of days, but I think it's just moved slightly. It was certainly having fun playing with my bladder last night! I think it's arm must be right by it! Getting on top of paperwork slowly at work, hoping then I can relax a bit in the last week or two. Got 3 weeks and 1 day left. Very jealous of those finishing this week!
