It's getting quiet in the 3rd tri these days. I hope you're doing well and baby is on the way, Trifle!
i had a horrible nights sleep last night. It felt like I was lying in bed awake all night, but I know I at least got some sleep because I did have a weird dream. Had to stop myself from tossing and turning too much thanks to the achey arm from the jab, but the jab really wasn't that bad! Volunteering today, hopefully I'll manage to stay awake through the afternoon and make it home for a nice nap.

Wispa you have my sympathy, that describes me most nights. I find I feel a little better if I get up for a few minutes, cool down and then get back into bed. I hope your arm eases soon, mine only ached for about 48 hours then was fine just a little itchy.
AFM I woke up at 4am, again! This time I had a headache so took a paracetamol, eventually went back to sleep though so that's a result. I woke mr imp though whilst looking for a paracetamol so he's tired today too.

Morning wispa and everyone to follow :)
wispa - I read about your visit to the docs, I had an ECG done a few years ago and sod's law it was ok at the time! I had to have a monitor on me for a week and everytime I felt a palp had to press a button so it recorded it. When the monitor was checked they confirmed I have an extra beat (3rd beat) now and again which caused the palps. I hope they find some answers for you it can be very troubling. I hope you have a good day being a volunteer.
AFM - off to our second antenatal class this afternoon then a tour to follow around the maternity unit. Hope everyone has a good day xx

Morning all - Hope baby Trifle is on the way!
Wispa - I think it is the curse of 3rd tri that you will get less and less sleep! I can never get into a comfortable position for long enough to really sleep! Hope your arm doesn't ache too much today!
Imp - hope you are not feeling too tired today! I keep waking up at 4/5am hungry so have to rustle around for a biscuit!
LeeLee - Hope you antenatal class and tour go well :)
AFM - not a lot to report, tired thanks to having a super wiggly nocturnal baby, though I keep telling myself I don't mind baby moving as long as it is attempting to turn itself the right way around rather than being breech!

Hey Leelee enjoy your antenatal class tonight! :)
vix sorry you're tired too but hopefully they're fidgetinga round into the right position!

Wispa, it is really quite here now isn't it? Boo to the bad night's sleep, I was the same and it sucks!
Imp, boo to the bad night's sleep for you too. Hope your head is ok today.
Leelee, hope the antenatal class and maternity unit tour are both good. We don't get a tour of our unit at all (though I was there last time so don't need it this time round.)
Vix, lots of turn now vibes for you! J didn't turn till 37 weeks, so time yet!
Loads of braxton hicks happening here which is very uncomfortable, and also I need a wee all the fexing time, I literally go for a wee, wee 3ml, stand up, and need a wee again, it's driving me nuts. Also, since I'm having a whinge, I had about 2 hours sleep tonight and am v tired. On the plus side, we're having an office bake off, and so I'm mostly eating cake and using the sugar rush to stay awake!
Baby out vibes to Trifle, vibes generally to Monnie, and hope everyone else is having a fun Thursday.

Sorry there are so many of us not sleeping well.
Wispa - I sympathise. I had my whooping cough jab yesterday too and it was so sore overnight and today despite the jab itself not hurting!
Imp - hope your headache eased quickly.
LeeLee - have a great time at your class and hope the tour goes well.
Vix - hope it is baby turning itself the right way.
SG - sorry you are so tired. The needing to wee all the time would drive me mad! Office bake off sounds great!
AFM - another one who had a disturbed night. I've been wide awake since 4.30am and went downstairs at 5.30am to sort out some laundry. Just got back from work so have a couple of hours to relax before my antenatal class tonight.
Baby out vibes to Trifle!

Oh SG, sorry to hear you're sufferimng too. Perhaps the Bh will be a good sign though, at least your body is practicing- just a shame they're so blooming uncomfy. Enjoy the cakes, I'm jealous!
Ixia sorry you've had a bad night too, it must just be the way it is in 3rd tri! I hope you manage to relax for a few hours ahead of your class tonight.
I've just bought some baby bits in the aldi baby eveny, nothing major- just some more cellulat blankets, a hooded towel, some socks and some packs of swim nappies.
Oh and I ordered myself some new dresses from DP's as they've got 30% off everything!

Hey ladies - I don't manage to get in here too often...
Wispa - Hope your arm stops hurting soon.
Imp - Hope your head stops hurting soon too.
LeeLee - Hope that your tour of the maternity unit was good - did you have to book it or did they just tell you when to go?
Vix - Fingers crossed for sensible baby turning round!
SG - Can't beat cake. Hope you get some sleep soon though.
Ixia - Sorry you are not sleeping either, I think I am just starting to get into that phase now.
AFM - have this week developed lovely painful pregnancy side effects of haemarroids and thrush... nice. I am in the process of looking at flights to Spain to go and see my dad for a few days which would be lovely, am a bit nervous about going on my own though!
Baby out vibes for Trifle and hugs for Monnie x
