Well, congratulations Bertie!!! And good luck today Counter, today is the day no matter what! And finally, we haven't heard from trifle, have we? Could there be a third baby in the mix, too? If there is, you know what that means, Monnie
Anyways, I hope everyone is doing well. Off to volunteer this afternoon, but otherwise hoping for a quiet day.

I have everything crossed for you counter
And trifle please please tell me you haven't popped yet!
Wispa you will give me nightmares haha!
Have fun volunteering!
Afm- I can't believe I'm next, this is a very scary time!
I do feel like I'm under house arrest with all my appts though :-(
Today I'm going to tesco, which is the highlight of my week haha!

Oh don't you just love the first day back at work after a bank holiday???? No!
Congrats to Bertie.
Counter, come on baby baxter. The day is here!
Wispa Enjoy your easy day, I'm jealous.
Mon enjoy tesco, I actually enjoy food shopping, in fact I can spend hours walking around the supermarket. I am a bit odd though!
AFM- shattered.com. I'm not sleeping too well again, the anxiety has started back up which means that my sleep is dreadful. Work is fairly busy today though so I'm hopeful that a busy day will tire me out enough to make me sleep better tonight.
Happy feet is 29 weeks today and some type of squash, not one I've ever heard of so I'm off to google what it looks like!

Big congratulations to Bertie!
Hoping that Counter and Trifle are both well on their way by now too!
Wispa - Hope you have a nice quiet day!
Monnie - You next :) Hope the midwives can start being a little more helpful so you don't spend the rest of your pregnancy waiting around for them!
Imp - hope you start sleeping better soon!
AFM - I had a super busy Easter weekend so didn't manage to get on here at all. Got a few more maternity clothes so I actually have more than 2/3 outfits to wear! Started buying a few bits for my hospital bag so will get that put together soon. Had a nice family bbq and time in the sun with OH and the dog.
Only complaint is last night I just could not sleep for worrying about the actual labour bit! My mind would not switch off from thinking about being in hospital, what if I have to have a c section, what is OH has to leave, what if there are complications!

Afternoon all :)
wispa - hope the volunteering goes well :)
monnie - eek eek eek! You're next, bloomin ell, that's come round! I hope Tesco wasn't too much of an ordeal!
imp - you are very odd haha, I don't like spending too much time in a supermarket. Sorry to hear about the anxiety, that's not good, I think we all have some of that, it depends on how we control it I suppose. Hope you get a better sleep tonight and congrats on 29wks :)
Vix - I hear ya with the worrying about labour, that is a focus of mine right now especially after hearing about the pain relief available at our antenatal class last week! I also have pelvic pain/discomfort and that is a huge worry of mine when trying to give birth :( I try not to worry about it if I can help it! The different scenarios run around your head don't they, I hope you manage to not let them take over and just think of the bundle of joy you'll have at the end :)
AFM - not much to report, we put up the stickers in the nursery yesterday, they look cute. Still in discomfort with my pelvis, all around that area really and little dude is jumping about in there as usual :)
Bertie, many congrats again and come on Baby Baxter :) xx

Congratulations to Bertie and Counter.
Wispa - hope you enjoyed your day.
Monnie - you're next!!!! Eeek!!!! Time flies doesn't it!!!
Imp - sorry you're having such a bad time with your sleep and anxiety. I really hope you are tired out today (in the nicest possible way) and you get a better sleep tonight.
Vix - sounds like a very productive weekend you had. I think at this stage it all seems to get so real feeling, its hard not to start thinking about labour and how you'll cope/won't cope.
LeeLee - sorry your struggling so much with your pelvis. Hope you can find something that relieves at least a bit of the pain. Yay to getting the stickers up though!!!
Trifle - I have everything possible crossed that things start very, very soon for you. Baby out vibes!!!!
AFM - back to work today after nearly 2 weeks off. Blurgh!!!!! Its so awful trying to catch up on all the emails and everything that has gone on. Work is pretty chaotic just now. At least I've only got 7 weeks left to work before mat leave though. Thats a positive!!!
I need to tell the gym tomorrow when I'm going to finish up classes. I really don't know how long I can keep teaching. I'm feeling ok-ish just now and I don't want to stop things too soon but at the same time I do want to start winding down. I teach 3 nights just now and my initial plan was to cut back 1 night after holiday (which is now) and then teach the other 2 right up until maybe the end of June but thats only 1 week before my due date so I'm really not sure. I also have to tell them how long I'm taking off and what I'll be going back to teach. I've avoided making a decision on this and I'm now going to have to think about it properly tonight and give an answer tomorrow.
Baby wise little CA seems to be happy enough in there. Been moving around and kicking my ribs now and again. I can't believe they are actually big enough to be kicking right in my ribs - not sure what room is left for growth in there!?!?
Hi to all that follow xxxx

Evening everyone. Congratulations to Bertie and Counter, just you on the overdue bench now Trifle.
Wispa, hope you enjoyed your quiet day.
Monnie, oh dear to Tesco being a highlight, that doesn't sound good! I hope you managed to have a fun day.
Imp, sorry you're sleeping badly, I hope tonight is better for you.
Vix, glad you had a nice Easter, and yay for clothes! I seems wasteful to buy too many, but you do need enough to get you through. I know where you're coming from on the labour bit, but Try not to focus on the labour itself too much, it's normally such a short time in the grand scheme of things. Honestly, having a newborn is far scarier! ;-)
LeeLee, is the nursery fairly sorted now? Do we get a flash?
Trifle, loads of baby out vibes for you, I hope things happen soon.
CA, I'm in awe that you're still teaching gym classes! When are you thinking you might be able to go back?
I've had a pretty good day today, been to toddler group ith as, and then out wells shopping this afternoon. Unfortunately I got stuck in some massive traffic on the way home, and what should have been a 30 min journey took an hour and a half. J got bored and I had to sing old macdonald a lot! Attila put in a request for some steak tonight, so once J is asleep I'll be having steak in pepper sauce. Nom. (Don't tell anyone it'll be medium rare, bad SG.) Babywise all is good, I've been getting quite a sore back, and I struggle walking too much now, but it's all manageable. I've had, and am having now, loads of quite strong BH, they don't hurt, but they're not comfortable. Hopefully this'll mean a nice speedy labour!

Hey Spikey - booooo to all that traffic. It's awful getting stuck like that. I hope you enjoyed your steak. BH are quite off putting and annoying.
I think I'll take 4 months off my classes but I will only be returning to do 1 night a week I think. There is no way I'd be able to do them all again realistically. I probably won't want to either.
