Morning everyone. I'm tired today, two late nights and I can't hack it! Didn't get home until 9:45pm Sunday night after visiting family, which was a lovely day, but tiring and we had our 2nd antenatal class last night which finishes at 10pm, but it's hard to get to sleep as it raises questions and things to talk about. We've been given honework this week, to ask how people organised themselves in the first week to make things easier and to look at a book to feed back to the group, although got 2 weeks gor that. We've ended up with Buddhism for mothers to look at so hoping its an ibteresting read with some good relaxation techniques thrown in too! Got midwife this afternoon so looking forward to that.

Morning Bunny, that sounds like a busy few days! Try to get an early night tonight if you can. The book sounds interesting too.
AFM, not a lot to report. Quiet day today at work, only teaching for an hour or so first thing, so hoping to actually get some planning done and catch up with lots of filing and paperwork too before ML. Meeting my friend's baby (finally!) on Friday which I'm looking forward to and want to get my baby blankets finished at some point too, but not sure when as we have a busy week ahead.

Bunny - sounds like a busy few days. I know what you mean about sleep being a struggle!
Margot - boo to paperwork! I have loads of that at home but can't be bothered to sort, file, shred etc!
AFM - didn't feel great yesterday, was hoping it meant things were going to start but no such luck! Taking M to dancing this morning, nothing else planned. Quite happily take any baby out vibes you have!!!!!

Bunny - sounds like a busy few days, hopefully you can catch up on some rest tonight.
Margot - A quiet day sounds like heaven, I'm pretty busy til I finish next Friday but hoping that means time flies!
MrsH - baby out vibes for you!
AFM - antenatal last night, H didnt freak out too badly, but then they didnt really go into what could go wrong that deeply, just spoke about vontouse, forceps, CS etc rather than why you;d get to that stage. H is doing my head in at the moment, he has a lot on his mind with work and getting the house sorted, but he's so grumpy all the time I just want to thump him! Hey ho, hopefully the DIY will be pretty much done this week then we can have some us time before Bean makes an appearance!

AFM - well all good with me. hubs put new radiator on last night in twinklets room..and the cat randomly had 2 kittens yesterday....2 days after the first 2. 1 died but the other one is doing ok and has made it through the night. NOthing else to report really. just plodding along :)

Got the mw this morning so have time to get on the computer.
Bunny - hope you get an early night tonight.
Margot - I would love a quiet day but got a very busy one at work
Mrs H - will send you lots of baby out vibes.
PC - Hope your H gets over the grumps. That's no fun
AFM - H got a new job. Self employed wasn't working anymore so he now has a wage with paid holidays and paternity leave (yay!!!) but it means that for the 1st 8weeks of the job he is working away in London so just me, D and the dog. I'm sure it will be fine. My mum is coming down mid july to help so it'll be fine. The only problem is that it takes us right up to my due date so I'm now hoping this baby is a little bit late so H can be there.
My bump seems to have doubled in size. I was hoping it would stay small as I don't really want another monster newborn. We'll find out in a few weeks at the growth scan. We moved D's room around to get some baby stuff in and it's really affected her sleep. Hope it goes back to normal soon. I'm so tired.
Hi to all that follow x

Bunny - that is a busy few days! Hope the book is interesting!
M - enjoy the baby cuddles! I thought of you yesterday, I made some scones and thought that this is the kind of thing Margot would do
MrsH - bucket load of baby out vibes heading your way
PC - sounds like you both need to have some time to chill together
Twink - congratulations on the new arrival! Hope this one is ok x
D - well done to your H on the job. I'm sure it'll all work out. A's sleep has also been getting worse this week, maybe we should have out own 3rd tri MINOS bench.
AFM - another awful night from A last night, I'd decided before we went to bed last night that it's no more mrs nice guy from me, as if H gets up to him he doesn't tend to wake up again, but if I go in, he's guaranteed to wake up at least once more. We had to listen to an hour of him going through his whole repertoire of reasons he needs Mama - no socks, can't find his teddy, wants milk, wants cuddle... You get the picture.
I'm shattered today and just praying the tough guy act will pay off soon.
Today we have the usual swimming followed by soft play. Managed to get a lot of cleaning done yesterday so will rest this afternoon.
Bump seems fine, having a quieter week I think.

Bunny - Sounds like you've had a busy few days. Good luck with the widwife
Margot - Sounds like today's going to be a good day for you work-wise :-)
MrsH - Baby out vibes for you!
PC - Glad to hear your H was ok last night, hope he cheers up soon though
Twink - Yay to one of the kittens surviving, sorry to hear about the others though. Do you plan on keeping it?
Daisy - Thats good news about your H's job but hope you manage to keep baby in so he can be there.
BG - Hopefully A will start to get through the night for you soon!
AFM - Had aquanatal last night which was lovely, seeing a friend for dinner tonight after work. Not much to report baby wise, started the raspberry leaf tea on Sunday although I keep leaving it at home and its been too late to drink when I get home so I've only actually managed 1 cup so far! Will start building up each week.
Have a good day!
