How are we all today?
I'm feeling a lot better after almost a full night's sleep. A did wake once but H heard him before I did and went to sort him. I woke up at 5.30 and for once am ready for work with plenty of time to spare, bet I miss my train now...
Woke up to the lovely news that one of my mummy friends had a baby girl over night, she has a boy A's age so I'm thrilled we'll have a 'matching pair'.
Dug out the dream genie pillow last night, not sure if it helped me sleep or not, I seemed to tangle myself up in it a bit!
Big bump hugs to all

Glad you feel better today. It's amazing the,difference a good night's sleep makes! It's lovely that your friend has 2 and that the second is a girl like yours.
Not much to report, had midwife yesterday. Bump measuring pretty spot on and baby is head down, although not engaged which is good. H came and asked a few questions about labour. When he heard baby was head down I think he was thinking that the baby will arrive early. I'm still convinced it will be late! 15 more school reports to write! Over half way now.
Glad you had a better nights sleep BG. Lovely news about your friends baby
Nothing much happening here. My H took the last 2 days off work so I feel better having had a restful few days. He's back on nights tonight so I'm hoping for an easy night from the kids. Have just dropped J's nap to make bedtime easier - its working but my god, he's a grump from about 5pm. No baby news, think we're organised other than buying the mattress for the cot. My mum's bought us a travel cot for downstairs and it arrives today - figured we needed somewhere to put baby safe out of the toddlers reach lol
Hope everyone is well, baby out vibes to those who want them

Missed you there bunny, glad all went well at mw. Think my baby has been head down for weeks now, wish it did mean they'd arrive on time! Getting there with the school reports! :-)

Bridget – glad you managed a better night sleep. It’s amazing how that changes the start to my day. Awwww… yay for your friend.
Bunny - glad mw went well yesterday. Ours has been head down since 28 week appointment, apparently a bit keen to get into position.
Ally – glad you’ve managed some restful days. And fingers crossed you get an easy night of it. Ha ha – I like your thinking, I used to ‘help’ my mum with my brother and there’s only a year between us so maybe having baby out of reach is a good thing.
AFM – sorry I’ve been a bit AWOL past few days. H was away at the weekend and after a rubbish night sleep I decided to just have the weekend to lie in front of the sofa and relax. It was my mum’s 50th birthday on Monday, so went over to hers for lunch with my brother. Where brother saw bump move and got to feel a powerful kick for the first time, which freaked him out and reminded him there is a baby inside me. Going over again on Saturday as she’s having a big party then, so wonder if baby will freak him out again then. Then had a friend over yesterday which was lovely as she’s been really stressed with uni work the last few times I’ve seen her (she’s just qualified as a social worker). Baby has been fidgeting about loads recently and also experienced hiccups for the first time!
Hi to all that follow and baby out vibes to those who need them.

BG, congrats to your friend! It'll be great for your little one to have a girly friend already!
Bunny, great news MW went well. Bless your H for getting involved. Have a good day!
Ally, hope J soon adjusts to no naps and it makes things a bit easier for you. Good idea with a travel cot downstairs
Sapphire, sounds like you've been v busy! I love showing people my belly moving - makes it so real!
AFM - MW yesterday went well - baby is 4/5 palpable (1/5 engaged) so moving in the right direction, and she's getting me a prescription for gaviscon! Woo! Felt awful in the afternoon though, all hot and woozy, with some indigestion. Think it's the weather here, or maybe a bit of a bug. I'm glad I'd been to the MW in the morning otherwise I probably would have panicked! Feel a bit better today :)
Baby out vibes to those who require them! Who's next up? Anyone care to do a leaderboard?

19/06/2013 at 08:35

2nd - 22nd - MrsH2009
3rd - 27th - *JLS*

19/06/2013 at 09:21
Ahh good stuff! Not sure who scottsmum or Alexia are ? This is when you need the Hitched ability to see people's post history!
Baby out vibes for MrsH! Only another week until due date, JLS!
19/06/2013 at 09:31
Yeah they weren't familiar to me either - although if I take them off the list it puts me in the top 5 which is too scary lol

Bunny - Good news about bump measuring spot on and baby being head down

Saphire - Sounds like you've been keeping busy! I think I felt hiccups for the first time last night too, quite amusing!
Twink - Good luck at the midwife, I'm there today too and also have Friday off :-)
PW - Good news about the gaviscon. The weather was horrible yesterday wasn't it? Very muggy. Glad to hear your feeling a bit better today.
AFM - Argh... thats a bit scary that I'm now in the top 5!!! Working from home today for the last time, can't have a working from home day next week as my replacement starts on Monday. Seeing the midwife for my 36 week apt today and then hoping to have a relaxed evening after a busy weekend and being out the last few nights.
Hope you all have a good day!

Morning everyone - late to this, started one this morning but obviously didn't look very hard to see if someone beat me to it!
We've been swimming this morning, nothing else planned other than a bit of tidying and housework this afternoon before the school run. Get my section date next week which I'm waiting impatiently for, can't wait to know when we get to meet our baby!
