Morning ladies, I seem to be awake unusually early for me. I slept well though so that must have something to do with it.
First of two vets appointments this week for my kitty who has an upset stomach. Am hoping they can get it sorted without it costing an arm and a leg! Apart from that, not much else going on today, just a spot of housework.
Hope everyone's ok, baby out vibes to BG if your cold has cleared up!

Hope your cat is ok popcorn, and the bill isn't too ouchy for you!
AFM - still no sign on baby. Have midwife this afternoon for a stretch and sweep, never had one with A as he was more punctual, not looking forward to it, but am looking forward to finding out if she thinks I'm favourable or not. I'm really resisting the urge to make a joke about me having a poor p u s s y too
Off to soft play this morning to tire A out so that he sleeps through mw appt, I don't fancy explaining to him why the lady has her hand up mummy!
My cold is still there but much better now, so thank you for the baby out vibes.
Will update later

Ha BG that made me laugh! Hope it goes ok and A sleeps through it, can imagine it could be traumatic otherwise!

Goodness, baby out vibes to you!!
I can join in now as I'm 27 weeks today. I was sick again yesterday and in bed by 7pm; hopefully it was a one off caused by my recent craving for clementines combined with the latest symptom; reflux. Diet is clearly going to need managing as I can't rell if I'm hungry or have indigestion!
Off to the consultant today; not sure why other that I'm consultant led due to my age and 3 previous losses. I feel fine (other than tired) and baby is kicking well. And the dentist for a filling later on after work. It's all go!!
Popcorn - good luck at the vets today, hope your little kitty is ok x
BG - good luck today and fingers crossed A sleeps for you!
Afm - not a brilliant nights sleep, woken a few times by I and then couldn't get back to sleep. Busy day today, soft play this morning and then swimming lessons with I this afternoon. Good job she's at nursery tomorrow, I could do with a restful day!!
17/09/2013 at 08:06
Welcome Sange, hope the consultant appointment doesn't prove too much of a waste of time.
Banzy - that sounds like a normal night for me lately, always having a few random hours awake during the night. Hopefully you'll have a few better nights. A was supposed to have swimming today too but it's probably best we don't go and make our colds worse. I'm also thankful that tomorrow is a nursery day!

PC hope the vets goes ok and doesn't get too expensive
BG good luck with the sweep hope it gets things moving for you
Sange I always think the more appointments the better, even if they seem a bit pointless as its another excuse for someone to check on baby. Are they doing it just to keep an eye on you more or are they limiting your birth options?
Banzy hope you manage to make it through the day on little sleep- think of it as practice for when baby arrives lol!
AFM not much to report. Another rainy day here. Off to a play group this afternoon which hasn't been in since July so looking forward to seeing a few of the mums there
Baby out vibes BG
17/09/2013 at 09:10
Sorry Sange missed you there - busy day for you, hope both the consultant and dentist goes well!
BG - good idea to stay away from swimming, plus you wouldn't want to risk your waters going in the pool, imagine that!!
JT - have a lovely time at play group x
17/09/2013 at 09:13
Popcorn - sorry to hear your cat is poorly. Mine is currently sitting on the arm of my chair purring loudly. Wanting more food I expect!
BG - Hope your Midwife appointment goes well and that she thinks labour will start naturally soon. Great news about the house too - here's hoping for a smooth purchase for you.
Sange - Welcome to 3rd Tri! I don't suppose the clementines are doing much for the reflux. I was out and about on my bike yesterday and that gave me the most awful heartburn, I then had curry for dinner which was not a good idea. Gaviscon all round!
Banzy - Sounds like you've got a busy day. Enjoy!
JT - We are expecting rain too later. Hope you have a good catch up with the playgroup Mums.
AFM had a few niggles last night, baby felt really low and like it was pressing right down. Sat on the ball for a bit and I was still feeling a lot pressure when I went to bed but no sign of baby today.
Had an emotional moment this morning just as we were leaving to walk to school, A said to K 'You are the best big sister in the whole wide world' and they had a big cuddle and K replied 'and I love you too'. They skipped together most of the way to school. It was so sweet. I hope they are always that close. No doubt they will be fighting within 10 minutes of getting home tonight!
No great plans for today, I need to get A some new ballet shoes so pop out and do that. I need to practise with the caboo/close carrier later too.
17/09/2013 at 09:14
Banzy - I quite dislike the swimming teacher so I'd secretly be a bit pleased if that happenned! My friend has warned me not to flood the ball pit at soft play tooday .
17/09/2013 at 09:33
Popcorn- Hope the vet appointment is straight forward and it doesn't end up costing you a small fortune!
BG- At least you get your poorly 'cat' looked at on the NHS so won't be out of pocket ;-) haha Hope A has fun at soft play and sleeps through for you.
Sange- Welcome to 3rd tri! Hope you appointment goes well and they are able to explain things about being cons led a little more to you.
Banzy- Sounds like you have a busy day ahead of you but at least it should tire I out. Look forward to your restful day tomorrow!
JT- Looks like it's rain all round, hasn't stopped for a few days here! Have fun at play group.
Noggin- That is so lovely about A and K! It actually maked me a little choked up because I'm super hormonal at the minute (yes, I might by crying at X Factor every week.. completely normal yes!?).
AFM- Stayed off work yesterday. Had a banging headache Sunday night and hardly slept. It's not something I would usually consider sick day worthy but I felt awful and felt like it's about time I put myself and baby first. Feeling a bit better today but we will see how I get on.
17/09/2013 at 09:34
Hello everyone, I am so sorry I have been AWOL for ages! I've completely given up on posting here from my phone and as work is so busy I don't get much laptop time. Hope you are all doing well. Just less than 3 weeks til maternity leave so then I will be back properly to bother you all!
Hope that baby is out soon BG x
17/09/2013 at 09:44
Popcorn- hope the vets isnt too expensive and your cat is ok!
BG- I hope the S&S does the job!!! Baby out vibes!!
Welcome Sange- I only came over yesterday! I had some reflux and indigestion last week, wasn’t pleasant!
Banzy- Hope you get a better nights sleep tonight and a restful day tomorrow!
Jellytot- enjoy catching up with the mums!
Noggin- that is so sweet! Im looking to get a Caboo, let us know how the practice goes!
Sam- You should definitely be putting yourself first! Glad your feeling better today and that the headache stays away!
AFM- I am knackered today, i keep waking up around 6:30! We have our first NCT class tonight! No idea what to expect. Do I need to take a pen and paper to take notes?!
17/09/2013 at 09:56
Popcorn, hope your kitty is better soon! x
BG, hope the sweep gets things moving! Baby out vibes still being sent! :o) I have just noticed your signature too saying due now, made me smile!
Sange, welcome to 3rd tri! Hope the appointment goes ok, good luck at the dentist!
Banzy, my nights are getting that way too. Once I fall asleep it is normally ok, it is just the falling asleep that is a problem! Hope you get rest tomorrow :o)
JT, enjoy catching up with the mums :)
Noggin, aww how sweet is that! I find it hard to stay composed when I hear things like that, I can't wait for those moments with B and this one! :o)
I have had a couple of very uncomfortable days, horrid cramps all day on Sunday and yesterday I just felt very uncomfortable, couldn't breathe or eat much, baby was obviously sat in a very awkward position. Have been getting headaches too so been trying to drink more, if it carries on I will ring my midwife today. I had such an easy pregnancy with B so this is somewhat of a shock to the system lol.
Have a good day all!
17/09/2013 at 09:59
Sam, hope you feel better soon! xx
Hello Tina! Looking forward to having you back about soon!
Mrs Bass, I alwayss take pen and paper with me to places like that just in case but from what I remember about the NHS classes I just listened and discussed with the others. We got hand outs too x
17/09/2013 at 12:44
Chimp- sounds like you havent had a pleasant coupld of days, hope you start to feel beter soon! Thanks for the info, I doesnt hurt to chuck a note pad in my bad does it!
I just poped across the road to get some lucnh and its raining and my waterproof coat doesnt really do up over my bump any more! might have to invest in a cheap poncho to see me through the next couple of months!
17/09/2013 at 15:43
Quick update from me, mw said I'm a 'good 2cm' dilated, managed a good s&s. Have another booked for Friday and induction delayed until next Wednesday (40+12).
Hopeful I won't make it that far though
17/09/2013 at 15:48
BG- Good news and hopefully either this s&s or the one on Friday will get things moving! It really is starting to sink in that I will also be having a baby soon, I go from every emotion from complete joy to utter terror in a matter of about 10 seconds when I think about it! haha
MrsBass- I also don't have a coat that fits :( I was hoping I would be able to hold out for another 6 weeks but judging by the weather there is no chance!
17/09/2013 at 18:26
Wow BG, that's good news - I remember with K I had about 12 hours of contractions to get to 2cm! Sounds really promising.
17/09/2013 at 18:52
I'm trying not to get too excited by it, some people can be at 2cm for days.
Had a few cramps on and off but they seem to be getting lighter. Maybe tomorrow, who knows!
