Morning ladies! I didn't manage to get back on yesterday as i can't find my laptop charger!
MW went well, she got the blood she needed from me and has booked me in for a sweep on the 22nd if i need it! bump has dropped quite a bit overnight i thnk, but as always, i'm pretty sure that doesn't mean anything is going to happen any time soon. been invited out on saturday to a hen do, so i'm planning on going to that.
Baby out vibes to WH!! hope we see you BA soon!!
RKB 39 wks

Having properly come too now (family keep texting me this morning for various reasons) I can feel baby right down in my pelvis. This is a new feeling, anyone else experienced this?
09/05/2013 at 08:02
Morning rkb... No I haven't felt that. My mum said yesterday she thought I had dropped down but no pelvis pressure for me as yet.
Afm. Car in for mot and service this morning... Then not much planned really! Maybe today I will get my feet up! X
09/05/2013 at 08:10
Hope your car makes it through its MOT bexy!! Try and get your feet up! You always sound so busy!
I think baby might have hiccups...which is a very odd sensations considering where they are lying!
09/05/2013 at 08:11
I just started replying and lots everything I wrote (annoying when that happens!)
RKB - Thats exciting stuff, hope things start moving for you soon. Can't help with the pelvis pressure as I'm still quite far behind you, hope it eases a bit though!
BB - Hope you manage to put your feet up!
AFM - Last day in the office again (I could get used to these 3 day weeks!) will probably end up having to do a bit of work at home tomorrow though as I'm stacked with stuff before I go on my maternity leave.
Have a good day everyone!

RKB, none of my 3 bumps have ever dropped, they stay up in my ribs to the last minute. Enjoy your hen do - I would go as well!
Bexy, hope you get to relax today
Well I was 37 weeks yesterday, hooray. Nearly there! Im full of cold again though so would like junior to stay put until its gone. Seeing mw this morning then was planning a trip to town ans getting A's haircut this afternoon but apparent,y the weather is to be awful so it'll probably just be back home for us.
09/05/2013 at 08:23
Morning all, sadly still here!
RKB- yes, mine feels quite sort of locked in down there at times. Probably engaged now? Fingers crossed you don't make it until your sweep!
Bexy- good luck for the mot! We're really lucky that my car as H's van are both company vehicles now so we don't have that annual pain! Hope you manage to fit in some relaxation.
TT- hope you manage to get all your work done today. It's hard work finishing everything up isn't it? God knows how many spreadsheets I must've sent my mat cover!
AFM- I am officially fed up. I appreciate I'm not even late but all I can think about is how massive this baby is going to be if I make it to induction next week. He is the length of my bump head to bum. And I'm nearly 5ft10! Got quite hopeful yesterday after the plug came out. Got another sweep this afternoon. Had a bad night as S ended up in our bed somehow so I had no space! Got jobs to so today but sleep calls first. My dad had his biopsy yesterday so he gets his results today. Any vibes much appreciated.
Have a good day ladies
09/05/2013 at 08:24
Missed you morph- sorry you're still feeling rubbish. Did you say you have a section date now?
09/05/2013 at 08:25
TT - 3 day weeks sound fab! Hope you don't have too much to do tomorrow!!
Morph - yay to 37 weeks! I think the weather isn't to be that great anywhere today. My sister and I were going to go for a walk later, but I won't if its miserable! Hope your cold clears up soon! And good luck at the MW!
09/05/2013 at 08:29
WH - sending lots of vibes to your dad! Hope the results come back clear! How have you managed to get a sweep before your due date? My MW won't do it! Not that I want her to, but the option would of been nice! As uncomfortable as I am, I am happy to wait for baby.
09/05/2013 at 08:32
Well because I have GD I'm booked for induction at term anyway an as soon as I told her he was 9lb6 at 38 weeks she didn't seem to mind doing it!
09/05/2013 at 08:40
Morning everyone. We have a decorator in today painting the living room and he's unplugged everything so got no WiFi to get on laptop and reply properly. I've got my growth scan this morning and will hopefully get some answers as to what the antibodies in my blood are and what their concerns are. Will try and get back on later to do personals but decorator will prob be here all day then we're off on holiday tomorro
Baby out vibes to all who need them

That sounds fair enough tbh! My MW asked if the sonographer had given me an estimated weight when I went for my presentation scan last week, but I had to tell her that when i'd asked, the sonographer said it was an old wives tale and it wasn't accurate, so didn't give me one. Granted the sonographer was a grumpy young thing who seemed like she wanted to be elsewhere to the point i'd nearly asked her if I was keeping her from something. I have to say in general, my who antenatal care experience hasn't been great!
09/05/2013 at 08:43
Hi Ally! Hope the scan goes well! And if we don't see you! Have a fab holiday!!
09/05/2013 at 08:48
Morning ladies! You're all such early birds, will I be up at the crack of dawn when I'm on maternity leave?!
RKB - Hope the bump dropping is a sign, or though the law of sod says that as you've planned a night out something will happen then!
Bexy - hope you get some rest today, and the car passes the MOT.
TT - Are are you doing 3 day weeks until you go on ML? Dont do too much at home.
Morph - Hope th cold doesnt hang around too long. Weather here was awful in the night, probably working its way east!!
WH - baby out vibes for you, and vibes for your day xxx
AFM - I've got a red raised itchy area where I had my whooping cough jab on Tuesday, is this normal? The nurse just said about having an achy arm and I havent got that! H is back on the DIY after holiday, I got home yesterday to find the entire contents of the living room stacked in the kitchen! I can just about get to the necessary bits for cooking! Going by his normal timeframe it could be like this for a month, so we'll be eating and living in our bedroom!
09/05/2013 at 08:59
PC - my arm went like that after my WC jab. It was itchy for what felt like weeks after, although i'm sure my memory is just exaggerating that. I hope your H get's the DIY done in a shorter time frame than his normal!
And i'm only up early because H gets up for work and inevitably wakes me too and then I can't get back to sleep!
09/05/2013 at 09:02
My H gets up at 0630 so I expect I'll be up early on ML too, I'm no good and rolling over and going back to sleep. He usually also witters on a me too!!

Hello lovelies....may get back later to do personals xxx Baby out vibes to all who need them
AFM......been feeling pretty wiped out since my pains on Monday but thankfully haven't had anymore of those. My tightening's have gotten more frequent and also more aggressive...my belly contorts in to a manner of shapes, its really weird for me as I didn't get this at all with C. Going to the loo every 5 mins too. I can't believe its humanly possible to stretch any more, but with 5 weeks left (hoping to be induced if nothings happened by 39 weeks) I am sure my belly will give it a bloody good go!

Back from hospital after waiting ages to be seen. Few things from last bloods were abnormal so they've been repeated, bump hasn't grown in 2 weeks either. All well at scan. Estimated at 3lb 4 so far, way smaller than I expected but he only took 3 measurements and did say it isn't accurate at this stage. Had a detailed look at heart cos apparently the antibodies I have can affect it. All looking good though. Back at end of the month for another scan
09/05/2013 at 14:57
Twinkle toes - 3 day weeks are fab!
WH - I am with you on the fed up bench! Things are looking promising for you though - stay active this weekend and fingers crossed things kick off before Monday. Hope your dad results come back ok x
Porkchop - lol at your H - what DIY is he doing? WE have had a recent frenzy as well to try to get some stuff done
Munchkin - sounds like we are having a similar experinece at the mo. You have my sympathies
Ally - glad things are looking good, Enjoy your hols
I know you're probably bored of me and my drama but thought i'd update you all. Went along to my mw appt and we were just chatting and I updated her on last week etc. She asked how things were now and I said it is just like normal BH's now and casually mentioned I was having one - she felt my stomach and was like OMG its rock hard! Anyway, we carried on and I said 'oh there's another' and she felt again. She the ummed and ahhed as I worried her that she could feel them. Lo and behold I then had another and she could tell from my face without me saying anything (that was 3 in about 7/8 mins) and picked the phone straight up to day assessment who told me to come straight in. Cue tears from me and lots of faffing while we tried to get hold of my H as A needed picking up and she wouldn't let me wait an hour so I could get him. Anyway, long story short went in, had CTG, picked up tightenings approx 2 in 10 but sent away as they weren't as painful as last week but given instructions to come back sooner rather than later if they intensify. While I was there the lovely mw who looked after me all last week (and who spoke to my consultant about bringing my CS fwd to next week) came on shift and went straight up to labour ward to see if any slots had come up. They haven't but she said she is on shift all weekend and will check every day for me - I think she wants this baby out as much as me!!
