firstly a huge congrats to coco and sisi, so happy for you both. Any update from barefoot?
sorry I didn't get on here yesterday H and I had a lovely long anniversary weekend together. Got lots of bits sorted on Saturday - ordered the cot and a new bed for us. had a lovely meal sat night and went to a medieval night in London on Sunday and stayed in a hotel. Yesterday we came back and relaxed all afternoon was lovely.
babywise we had our 4d scan on Sunday. Baby was gorgeous, was asleep on his hand for most of it but was so lovely. He's currently measuring 3lb 1 oz and all looked ok. He was in the breech position but at 29 weeks I guess he's got lots of time to move? not much to else report, had as few bump pains but think it's where everything is stretching.

MrsL - I was just wondering about Barefoot. Haven't seen her around so I'm hoping it means she's at home cuddling her baby! I'm glad you had a lovely weekend and your scan sounds fab. I kind of wish we'd arranged one now! Not sure if 32 weeks is a bit 'late'.
AFM - the bad period type aches I had over the weekend seem to have gone however I'm still finding everything hard going. I'm not sure I can carry on like this until due date! I'd like to think she arrives a little early like her brother did. Another day at home for us today, I just can't face doing anything else. Poor F!

MrsL - your weekend sounds lovely! Glad you had a nice time.
Nothing from BF yet, hoping she is ok.
WG - glad the pains have gone, rest up as much as you can!
AFM - hair cut this morning then midwife this aft for 38-week check. Going to mention my headaches to her. Hips and pelvis were very painful again last night; I'm assuming it's due to baby being low and it's normal at this stage. I just hope I don't have to put up with it for long as it's not nice! Every slight twinge and I'm wondering if it means anything and I'm doing my own head in! Had my first text yesterday asking if I'd had any twinges and it annoyed me! God knows how I'll be if I go late (which I probably will knowing my luck!) x

Mrs l that's sounds like a great weekend. Glad that the scan went well. My baby is breech too at the mo when I went to see midwife at 31 weeks and she wasn't concerned in the slightest!
WG glad that the aches have calmed down. I'm sure f won't mind some quiet days, you need to rest!
Browny ooh last hair cut before baby! Can't believe that you are almost at the end. Definitely mention this headaches to the midwife.
Its sunny here at the mo so going to get some washing out! Started sorting some cupboards in the kitchen yesterday so hoping to carry on with that and see how many I can do.

Mrs L how lovely you got to see baby boy again
Browny enjoy your pampering, I missed it with Isaac as went into labour so was in need of a cut, colour and pedicure desperately lol.
Wg - a restful day sounds like what you need
Bunny sounds like a day of nesting
Afm GTT today, I'm absolutely starving! Just waiting on my repeat bloods at 11 then off home. Need to stop off to pick up curtains for boys room and a few other bits, need to get curtains up too. But I'd imagine first port of call is getting a bacon butty somewhere , new car came yesterday and it's lovely...I'm terrified to drive it though so I'm still in old car today having h take me for a driving lesson at the weekend [blush]
Take care all x

Hello rf. Hope you have managed to have that bacon butty by now! Sounds delicious.

MrsL: Sounds like you've had a lovely few days. My son (I love saying that!!) was head up at my last appointment a few weeks ago but I was told it's nothing to worry about at this stage. Do you have any photos to flash from your scan?
WG: Glad the pains have gone, make sure you do actually rest up today & there's certainly nothing wrong with taking it easy (otherwise I'd be in trouble today too!!)
Browny: Enjoy your haircut, some hairdressers & the like get very nervous having a pregnant lady around!! I hope the twinges you're feeling are the start of something & don't go on too long. Hope that's the last annoying text for awhile!
Bunny: Hope the kitchen sorting is going well, I really need to do mine but don't have the energy so I'm impressed.
RF: Hope you had something nice to eat after your GTT. I love the driving lesson idea. I had to get my sister to do that when I'd been travelling for a year as I completely couldn't remember how to drive a car & my hubby had to do it with me when we got our new car just before Isobelle was born (which was lucky as I had to go & rescue him from London at 34 weeks as he was very drunk & had missed the last train home!). I'm sure you'll be confident in it in no time at all!
AFM: I was intending to go to the farm today but just too tired so a sofa day (with a bit of tidying in between). I woke in the night to pee for the 1st time & hopefully it was just because I'd had a drink of milk before bed & something that's now going to happen frequently. I then couldn't get back to sleep for ages. Does anyone else have weird dreams? I've been having them since around beginning of 2nd tri, I don't remember most of them but they are very strange like 1 of the things I remember last night was that, for some strange reason, we had to tie a long tail thing onto our old cockatiel which made him into an eel, then I lost him in a large fish tank! Very weird. I had also had a dream about an actual name for this baby. The only trouble is it's a name that 1 of my oldest school friends son (whose 6), I now can't get it out of my head but don't think I can actually use it. Would you?

WG - I think 32 weeks is the latest you can have a 4d scan, at babybond (where we went) it is anyway. Hope you manage to rest a little bit if youre feeling tired x
Browny - hope the twinges lead to something soon! how did midwife go?
Bunny - hope you get things sorted! im no worried about baby being breech just yet!
RF - bacon sandwich sounds amazing, im so hungry this week!
Blackkat - no weird dreams just leg cramps and needing a wee in the night. i havent really dreamt much about baby at all!
Ok so heres a little flash of my man...i may delete later! Im so in love already!

Bk Iv not had bad dreams this time, last time they were frightening and sensitive but not had them, have had odd dreams though. I'm the same if I wake at night tajes me ages to get back to sleep, if at all
Mrs L lovely photo!!!
I didn't have my bacon butty, they'd stopped serving breakfast stuff came home and had some soup [sigh]

MrsL: What a cute image, I have to admit to being a bit freaked out by some of the 4D images you see but yours looks so cute.
RF: Hope you at least enjoyed the soup, even if it wasn't a bacon butty!!
As for the dreams last time they were quite raunchy but this time they're very strange. & I didn't exactly dream about the baby but (bare with me - it's a bit strange) I had a long piece of white tape that I had to write the name that I wanted to name my baby on & stretch in out on the bed & then put matching tape in a square around my head, but then my husband bend the tape on the bed so I had to start all over again. Yes, very strange I know!!

Bk I think if its a name both you and h love you should use it. Not had any strange dreams that I can remember. I had one dream around 25 weeks that I gave birth on 21st September and a week later dreamt I had baby at 36+2 which I worked out as 19th September so we shall see!I can't believe that's the first time you've had to get up to wee!
Mrs l that's a great pic!very clear and cute.
Rf that's rubbish. Soup doesn't live up to the expectations of bacon really! Hope it was really yummy soup!
