Morning custard how are you feeling?
All good here have the mw tomorrow and H is off thurs & fri. Aarons christmas party today and then we need to stay in between 12-6 for gas man. Fun!!

Ho hum! For now being on the bench!
I had my midwife appointment yesterday and baby was in a good position etc etc. Slight concern about slowing down of movements again so I had to do the movement tests. She responded so all is fine. Last night was the most active she has ever been. I have a fab video of her foot sticking right out my body (and my H screaming oooooooo!!) I've been feeling her lots throughout the night and having a few (dare I say it!) 'twinges'! All probably nothing! As I was told I would be early and baby will be small I am now fully expecting a 10lber in January! Midwifes lie! Pah!

Morning CK :)
Enjoy Aaron's Christmas party :) I hope here is food involved for you!
18/12/2013 at 07:09
The full moon didnt do for you then Custard! Do'h :-) Well done for capturing foot on video!
CK - enjoy xmas party and hope gas man doesnt keep you hanging on!
My friend in USA has just emailed (bearing in mind its middle of the night there) to say she is 4cm and at the hospital. How exciting!! No signs here - just weird 'stabbing' type pains in my spine. No idea whats thats about but can only assume i'd lifted something (a toddler!) awkwardly.

Custard why are you always awake so early when you don't have to go to work?! ;-) Booo for being on the bench, I hope it's only a short stay. That's amazing that you have video of her foot, we've been trying to catch videos of our baby but he never performs when we want him to.
CK I hope Aaron has fun at his party and you have fun waiting in for the gas man...!
HF - don't they say that some people start labour in their backs?! Good luck to your friend.
I'm like CK today except I'm waiting in for a washing machine delivery as mine chose to explode two weeks before Christmas, when I've obviously got loads of spare cash available to buy a new one. Grrrr. Is it wrong that I'm excited about the new one, though? Think I'm really turning into a mum now! Ha ha.
Went into hospital on Monday afternoon as baby was making some very weird movements, turns out he was just shuddering in his sleep. I didn't even know that they did that whilst still in there. I wonder what he was dreaming about? :-)

Morning Lovely ladies!
Custard - my name is moving further up that list #poops herself! - I hope the "twinges" actually become something
CK - good morning to you
HF - hopefully the back pain is the beginning of something?
Penny - Have fun with the new machine!
Mrs B - I hope things start moving for you soon, however if it is boxing day then it will be the best present for xmas ever!
AFM - really starting to wish I had finished work earlier, I hate to admit it but I am really struggling, think I would be ok if the SPD wasn't so bad and I had a bit of sleep! I am working from home today so that's not to bad, going to see if my boss will allow me some half days working from home over the next few weeks
on another note the babys room is pretty much finished and I am trying to get a few bits sorted for me hospital bag!
got two hour NCT class tonight until 10pm (yawn)
18/12/2013 at 09:06
Oh Custard I hope you aren't on the bench for too long!! That is totally amazing about the foot!!!
CK - enjoy the party!
HF - I was going to say the same thing as Penny about labour pains starting in the back. My mum said almost all of her contractions with my were like back ache right until the end! Fx!!
Mrs B - it's wonderful to know you'll be a mum by the weekend regardless of how baby turns up! Obviously it's just very cosy in there!
NLH - I hope your boss is supportive of you working from home. Fabulous news about the nursery!! Enjoy the class!
Penny I don't think it's sad at all that you are excited about a new washing machine. I love a new appliance too!!
Not much to update here. Both bubs and I are good! Work is immensely dull this week - I'm a trainer and not much training happens the week before Christmas! Ho-hum! Roll on Friday heh!
Have a great day all!

Penny- My h gets up for work at 6 and I'm generally up before him! I've given up sleeping recently! 4 hours has become a good nights sleep! Enjoy your washing machine!
Mrs bass - I'm trying to focus on the point that nobody is pregnant forever! (Even though it feels like I may be!)
NLH- that list suddenly flies! Just wait until Jan when all the December babies have arrived! (Hopefully!) enjoy your class tonight.

Morning sweetpea - enjoy the quiet time at work! :) x
18/12/2013 at 09:43
NLH- I hope your boss lets you. How long have you got until ML is due to start? Can you bring it forward?
Sweetpea- enjoy the chilled out working time! Must be nice in the run upmto a break!
Custard you're right, it has got to come out at some point!
As someone here pointed out, atleast I'll get Christmas at home!
18/12/2013 at 09:57
Mrs Bass if my baby arrives on time and your induction works quickly we could have our babies on the same day. But hopefully the slowdown in movements is a sign of impending labour for you!
NLH I hope your boss lets you work from home and that you don't fall asleep in your class tonight!
Sweetpea I'm glad its not just me! Hope this week goes quickly for you.
Custard, well I guess it's good practice for when baby gets here. Hope you can maybe have a nap today to keep your energy levels up for labour.
Has anyone seen Gemini today?

Morning all, on phone so no personals I'm afraid.
Baby outs to those needing them.
I had early start as H had pre op appointment at the hospital this morning, now sat having my hair cut and coloured - bliss! X
18/12/2013 at 11:27
Yep Penny, still here!
Nothing so far for me, just cramping. Dont think the sweep worked!
On a plus side, I had THE best nights sleep that ive had in months!! Woke up a few times for the toilet but didnt wake up unil ten. I feel fab and still in bed chilling wathing tv! Ha
3 more days until induction on Saturday. Im hoping that as im already dilating that ill be further along by then and that they might be able to break my waters before starting with the induction process. I can only hope!
Vibes for a speedy induction if it comes to that please!
Will be back later for personals!
18/12/2013 at 11:32
Penny, that'll be so exciting!
Oh I hope something has kicked off for Gemini, she has usually been on by now!
MrsP- enjoy being pampered!
I seem to have no energy today. Had a later than usual night but only woke once for a wee! Cant see me doing much today at all. Im getting saddly excited about some of the food I know is gojng to be delivered later!
18/12/2013 at 11:35
