I personally wouldn't stay in....get yourself walking!! If you would prefer to stay in the house as dull as it is housework is key!
AFM - Nothing to report. Just a stubborn baby clearly far lazier than it's big brother!! Off to soft play this morning and a long walk this afternoon.... Make the most of time alone with my son while I still have it!

Alipops - how exciting! Hope things develop!
Coco - hope things start for you very soon, but like you say use the extra days to enjoy O just the two of you!
AFM - I'm thinking I need to get more active! Due to my back/hips I rest/sit down most of the day but i have had some niggles here and there so maybe if I bounce on my ball more and be upright more things might happen quicker than they would otherwise. It's still early I guess but anything to help! I didn't have a massage last week and I'm feeling my hips hurt more now - just shows the good it's doing me. I'm going tomorrow so hopefully that will ease them a bit. Nothing planned today so just planning a chilled one.
Baby out vibes to those that need them! X
Well, the cat has conjunctivitis and is on eye drops, and swimming turned into walking yesterday since I felt too crampy to risk the pool. Typically, once I had a bath after, all the pains went away, despite Clary sage in the bath and hubby using it in massage oil for my back. No more signs today so I must also have a stubborn baby. It's Dad's birthday today and would have been nice form his grandchild to share it, but never mind. Today's plans: someone is coming to fix my campervan's roof, and someone else is taking out TV for repair.
Alipops, I am so envious but excited for you! As Coco says, keep walking and active, and hope it's all a good sign!
Coco, hope your walk moves things on. I can't do long walks anymore without feeling like a sledgehammer is battering my pelvis. Managed 2 miles last night, but it was a struggle that took an hour!
Hi to all who follow, and baby out vibes please!

Ooh hi Browny, sorry our posts crossed. As above, activity should help if you can manage it. Have a nice chilled day x

Thanks girls - I think I might go for a walk around the village after lunch, I'm just conscious that I'm still losing mucus/bloody show bits, but I should be fine to nip round the village a few times as at least I can get home fast if necessary.
Unfortunately, we've decided to cancel our anniversary weekend away on Saturday, need to make the decision at some point. Yesterday I was fine with it but today, I think it's risky now. We might even have our baby on our Wedding anniversary instead haha, that'd be superb timing.
I'm par-taking in some house work at present and doing as many laps of the house as I can in the process haha!

Alipops I hope things continue moving in the right direction. I think you've made the right decision with your weekend away as it would be hard to relax if you're expecting baby to arrive!
Coco enjoy soft play with O and I hope that the walk gets things going.
Browny enjoy your chilled out day and possible ball bouncing! I've got to blow up the ball we've got still.
Bf I hope that the pains come back and stay! Sounds like a busy day of repairs!
Well we've woken up this morning to find muddy footprints in and around our bath! A cat must've come in the window during the night, but no evidence of it still being in the house or having gone anywhere else. First job today will be cleaning the bathroom! Got a hair cut later then I'm going to continue sorting out stuff in the nursery. We had so much stuff shoved in there its hard to find homes for it all.

Ali - I think you've made the right decision about not going away at the weekend, I'd be a bit nervous too. Hopefully things will start happening now.
Coco - I really hope the long walk this afternoon gets that stubborn baby moving for you, he/she is obviously far too comfy in there!
Browny - have you tried leaning over your ball and sort of rocking/swinging your hips? We do this in aquayoga (without the ball though haha!) and it really helps achey hips and lower back.
BF - the pains must mean *something* is happening, fingers crossed they come back and actually lead to something for you.
Bunny - naughty cat! Enjoy getting your hair cut later today.
AFM - F is at nursery today and I've just got back from having my nails done. Jobs to do today include dusting and vacuuming, start washing baby clothes for the hospital bag and to make some enquiries for F's birthday party.

Hi ladies, sorry I haven't been on for awhile,
Allipops: Sounds exciting. Definitely get a maternity pad on & go for a walk! Fingers crossed you don't have long to wait
Coco: Enjoy the time with O, hope things get started soon for you
Browny: Hope you enjoy your chilled out day & get your massage tomorrow
BF: Hope the pains were beginning of something to happen but in the meantime try to keep yourself busy
Bunny: How strange about the footprints, hope it didn't take too long to get sorted. Enjoy sorting the nursery out
WG: Sounds like you've got lots on, hope you achieve what you want to.
AFM: Feeling all emotional today. Started toilet training yesterday but it's not exactly going as hoped. Who'd have thought sitting on the bathroom floor (on a cushion) could be so tiring. Think I'll try for a few more days then go back to nappies until she's ready. Also went for a swim this morning as I stupidly thought how relaxing that'd be but it's not exactly that in the school holidays with a toddler. Other than toilet training not doing anything else today or tomorrow.
Hi to anyone later than me!!

WG sounds like you have a busy day. Hope you enjoyed having your nails done.
Bk hope you manage to relax a bit after your stressful swim! That is a downside of being a teacher, always being on holiday with all the children!
I cleaned the bathroom and there's definitely no cat in the house, I just hope it doesn't happen again! Had my haircut but lost all motivation and just been sat on the sofa for a couple of hours. Must do some jobs before h comes in so I can pretend I've been busy all day;)!

Sorry for getting on so late!! Hope you are all ok.
Alipops - sounds very promising..hope contractions start getting regular for you soon! Good luck and thats a pity about your weekend away - i'd have done the same though.
Coco - sorry that things are not starting yet. Like you I have spent a lot of special time with my daughter in the last 2weeks. Hope things start for you soon.
Browny - hope some moderate walking starts things moving for you. Just take it easy. Late pregnancy is not a fun time!
Barefoot - sending you massive baby out vibes and well done on 2 miles. I wouldnt make it that far!
Bunny - you must have got a fright! Hope you like your hair! Nothing better to get a girl feeling better. Im counting the days until I can get my roots properly coloured!
WG - sounds like a nice day. What age is f going to be?
Blackkat - sounds like you need a hug... Swimming with a toddler is a lot of work! Hope you get a good nights sleep and feel better tomorrow. Toilet training is a hell of a lot of work and demands a lot of patience so good luck.
Afm - tomorrow is the day! I am a big mix of emotions...scared about the operation and nervous and excited to meet the baby. I have to fast from midnight tonight and I go in at 11am and c-section will be anytime from 1pm onwards so I will be starving! Will post an update probably tomorrow evening letting you all know how it went and introduce my new daughter....wish me luck!
