Baby out vibes to all who need them!
Had MW yesterday, Bean is head down, but kinda lying on the side! Fits in with where all my movements are. She also said that the pelvic pain I've been getting is probably just ligaments moving and softening, and to try and support my bump when I turn over in the night. Not much else to report, think I'll try and wash some of Beans clothes tonight then I can pack my hopsital bag at the weekend!

Morning PC, glad all was well with the MW appt. Have fun washing tiny clothes, I probably ought to do the same at some point.
All good here, good day at work yesterday, this morning Jacob and I are off swimming then popping to town for a few bits. Hopefully have some more nappies and wraps arriving in the post this week too which is exciting! Here's a pic of the bunting up in the nursery for those who are interested:
Hope everyone else is well, lots of baby out vibes for those who need them x

Hope the night time pain isn't too bad - know exactly how you feel!
Well, the day has finally arrived - my last day at work for 2013! Woohoo!!! I'm now 37+4 so have done quite well but will admit to being knackered! It's going to be a long day and I've alrady popped to a client's on the way into the office! Everyone keeps saying I can have a lie in tomorrow but M has preschool so it will be an early start then as well, but at least I can drop her off tomorrow and then have a couple of hours of doing nothing before operation blitz the house starts!
Hi to those that follow as may not get on again today!!
PC - glad all was well with the MW, that probably makes sense re the pains. Hard to remember to support your bump though when you're half asleep lol
AFM - nothing to report, was hoping for another day in the garden with the kids but it's very cloudy and has been raining overnight. I stupidly left all the toys outside not realising rain was forecast! Still feels warm though so hopefully it will dry up soon. Got the last of the baby clothes washed yesterday, just need to iron a few bits - a change from the 1st time round when I remember standing ironing vests and sleepsuits, not a chance of that this time! Will try and get bag packed soon as my H is away on a course all next week so I'll have no chance of getting anything done then
Hope everyone is well - baby out vibes to those who need them

Missed you there Margot - nursery is looking lovely, the bunting is great
MrsH - enjoy your last day at work, well done on working for so long, I've finished already and only 33 weeks!

Porkchop good that head is down. Enjoy your baby clothes washing
Margot the bunting looks great, lovely nursery
MrsH have a great last day!
Ally it's meant to be the worst day of the week this week, boo! Exciting to pack bag
Afm midwife is doing home visit this morning. Back to work for me tomorrow and I actually am looking forward to it, not the 5am get up though! Then I've got exactly 3 weeks till my annual leave starts followed straight into mat leave. Our driveway project continued gah!

PC - great news about baby's head! Great weather to wash an dry babies clothes outside
Margot - bunting looks fab!
MrsH - yay to last day at work! Weather is meant to stay nice this week so hopefully you will get some time to sit and relax in the sun before house tidy!
Ally - how annoying about the rain. Hope that weather gets drier up there for you
Duckford - hope that all goes well with midwife. Hope that tomorrow's early start is not too painful! We did our driveway a few months back and the mess drove me mad but it will most definitely be worth it!
Afm - have just taken out loads of meat from the freezer to start batch cooking this afternoon. Before that am going to see if I can get a nail appointment this morning as a treat. Am devastated as after 9 months of no stretch marks and constant oiling and moisturising, a couple have popped up on the bottom of my bump :-(
Have a good day all x

Morning all, well im officially with you today so scary!
Porkchop-glad the midwife went well, sounds like a fun evening
Margot-nursery looks fab, I love the bunting fab colours
Mrsh-yay for last day at work, hope it goes well.
Ally-its gone cloudy here too, I want the sunshine back! Have fun washing clothes and packing
Duckford-on countdown now until mat leave, those 3 weeks will fly by
Ferbs-one stretch mark will fade easily, just annoying after all these months! Have fun batch cooking
AFM have had awful sciatica last night and today, think I overdid it yesterday staining the cot. Trying to get the nursery painted but think I need to take it easy today

Porkchop – glad mw went well yesterday. Enjoy washing the baby clothes – be nice to know the hospital bag is done, if you get it done at the weekend.
Margot – love the bunting! Ooo – exciting stuff with the nappies. I realised after buying all the big bits for the nappies I needed, that I hadn’t ordered any nappi nippas – so those should be arriving in the next few days for us.
MrsH – enjoy your last day! At least you’ll be able to rest while M is at preschool.
Ally – hope the weather cheers up, it sounds the same here. Wow, I hate ironing that much, I’ve not even considered ironing baby clothes. They look fine though.
Duckford – hope the mw goes well this morning. You make sure you take it easy at work. But not long to go now until you’ll be off again.
Ferbs – I wish I was able to do the batch cooking would be really handy but we only have a small fridge with freezer box, so just means H is going to be cooking some more. Boo to the stretch marks, but fingers crossed they’ll fade after baby arrives.
Noodle – taking it easy sounds the best thing for you! You don’t want to overdo anything.
AFM – I packed baby’s hospital bag last night, just need to get some cotton pads and it’ll be fully completed. So I guess that means my bag will be next on the list..

Hi Pc, that's great baby is head down. I'm getting more pelvis pain in last couple of weeks, guessing it's just a normal part of baby getting bigger. Can't imagine how uncomfortable I'll be by 40 weeks!
Margot, gorgeous bunting! Love the colours! H is out tonight, so think mine will be going up Thursday now. Gah!
MrsH, hoorah for maternity leave!! Definitely have a quiet day tomorrow
Ally, cloudy here too. Won't take long to get the toys dry though I'm sure! Have a good day
DF, hope the MW went well. It's nice when someone actually wants to go to work!! Hope your first shift back goes well
Ferbs, what are you batch cooking? Stretch marks are a bummer. I keep getting H to check under my bump for me!! I've heard they're hereditary so can't be helped. I'm sure biooil will 'reduce their appearance' afterwards though
Noodle, sitting down is prescribed for today!! Take it easy
Sapphire, good work on getting hospital bag sorted! I'm really struggling to get things together! Probably won't happen til i'm on mat leave now
AFM - well, my ankles are well and truly cankles now!! Raised them up at night but they're still huge and hideous! No real swelling elsewhere so don't think it's blood pressure, just one of those things I think. Only 2 days left until weekend - just booked a pedicure for Friday on my day off! Can't bloody wait!
05/06/2013 at 15:12
Noodle - welcome to 3rd tri! Owch to the sciatica. Make sure you are it easy
Sapphire - well done on baby bag. I was a complete last minute girl and ony started mine once on maternity leave. During our episode last week when we thought that I was in labour I was still throwing stuff into the bag!
PW - am planning to do lasagne, chicken casserole and chicken tagine today. Mum said that she will do some other bits for us as well so hopefully we won't go hungry and live off takeaway or bad stuff. Sorry to hear that your ankles have swollen, don't think that the heat helps. Hopefully a nice pedicure will help
05/06/2013 at 15:46
Thanks for the welcome everyone
Sapphire- your very organised getting your bag sorted, you can make a start for me too if you want!
PW- put your feet up, the heat isnt helping. Enjoy your pedicure in friday
Ferbs-oh all that food sounds lovely
Have spent the day resting but still painful, hoping it settles down soon
