Morning Ladies!! it's the weekend again! and with any luck, the last one with just me and H provided this little one shows up on time!
I'm once again in one ar$e of a mood again curtosy of the feckin cat. back has been quite achey last night which i'm hoping is a sign that i'm suffering pre-labour symptoms, and i don't just have a sore back.
Off out tonight for one of my aunts hen do! hope everyone has a lovely day!
And baby out vibes to all who need them, especially WH!! hope baby makes an appearance soon!

Morning rkb! Sorry to hear about your back.. Hope you have a restful day so your ready to party tonight!
Afm. Having a lazy morning... Got a wedding today! Bring on the tent like maxi dress!
11/05/2013 at 09:10
RKB- sorry your back's sore but I hope it's a sign! Enjoy the hen.
Bexy- have a great time at the wedding! Hope the weather stays dry.
Afm- nothing to report. Been losing a lot of jelly but nothing else happening. Decided against a 3rd sweep today as I don't really want a high risk delivery at the weekend if I can help it (problem with having dr friends- I hear too much!), and induction Monday should be fairly easy if I'm already dilated from last one. Off to soft play this morning with Rusty and Nala, then tomorrow is my brother's birthday so popping over there in the afternoon.
Have a good one ladies

Wh.. Sounds like a good decision about the sweep... Monday will soon be here! Have a nice time with the girls at soft play!
11/05/2013 at 09:48
Rkb - my can't permanently annoys me! Hope your back ache is the start of something.
Bexy - enjoy the wedding!
Wh - sounds like a sensible decision. Enjoy the last weekend as a family of 3!
AFM- having a lazy morning, then nieces birthday party this afternoon. I appear to be retaining a lot of water my thighs are solid! When should I worry?
11/05/2013 at 10:12
RKB - sorry to hear about your back. Hopefully it's a sign of things to come! Have fun at your aunts hen this evening
WH - shame that nothing has happended naturally although there is still time before the induction! Sounds like you have made a good decision about the sweep. Have fun at soft play this morning
Bexy - have fun at the wedding, am sure you will look lovely in your dress
PC - I have been very fortunate and not retained much water but my friend has loads of fluid all over. Her MW told her it was just one of those things but if you are worried perhaps speak to your GP or MW. Hope that you have fun at your niece's party. How old is she?
AFM - Am officially on maternity leave! Very strange feeling! Last few days were absolutely manic but feel confident in my covers ability. I now need to focus on me and baby and put work out of my head!
Went out in London yesterday evening for a friends birthday and after getting pushed and shoved have decided to call it quits now on any more trips into the centre. People on the tubes are soooooo rude, even with a big bump and baby on board badge! Am feeling shattered today so am planning on taking it easy and having a morning in my pjs in front of the tv! Need to pop out later to get some final bits for my hospital bag but now I have no work on Monday I don't suppose that there is any rush to do it all this weekend!
Have a good day all x

She's 3 Ferbs! Sounds like staying at home is the best plan for you. I cant imagine living in London and having to use the train while heavily pregnant, its bad enough for a weekend when not!
11/05/2013 at 14:34
RKB - Enjoy the hen do and really hope the back is a sign of things beginning.
Bexy - Enjoy the wedding, hope you don't have our weather! Sure you will look fab in your bumpy maxi dress :)
WH - Sounds like the right call with the sweep. Hopefully things will happen before, but if not Monday really isn't far away so GOOD LUCK - can't wait to see your BA.
PC - Enjoy the party today. My MW has only mentioned swelling in ankles and hands really, and said as long as they go down after resting it's fine. I've been really lucky that I haven't had swelling much at all, but I don't know if in your thighs it's just one of those annoying, but harmless things. I really don't know though, sorry.
Ferbs - Congratulations on finishing - you're going to love ML ;) must be such a relief. Sorry you were getting pushed about, so rude, and does sound like the right decision to stay away from the centre for these last few weeks. Enjoy your first week of freedom!
AFM - Had a nice morning meeting two friends for tea and cake. Was kind of hoping I'd have to cancel due to giving birth, but it was lovely to see them for what will probably be the last peaceful date I'll have in a while. Have come home to H cleaning the whole house! I did a lot when I started ML but the novelty quickly wore off so am happy that he's decided to take over. We were going to go for a walk but it's peeing it down so I may do a bit of baking and do some gentle wii fit exercises, if my massive weight doesn't break the board!
Have my sweep on Monday, but from putting out a thread about early ones, it seems highly unlikely that it will start anything, but worth a shot!
Have a lovely weekend all,
Lamby 38+6 x

Oh Ferbs, I have a train journey to do tomorrow. Hope people are nice to me!
Lovely to see you earlier WH. Next time baby will be here!!!
Lamby, enjoy peaceful coffee and cake whilst you can!
Porkchop, when did you last have your BP checked? When you push in, does it leave an indent?
Bexy, hope you enjoy the wedding.
RKB, back ache is a good sign. Hope it progresses into something soon.
AFM, went to soft play earlier so M is already exhausted and asking when can she go to bed. I want to pop to shops but know she'll fall asleep in the car if we do. Done housework and put some wall stickers up in the baby's room. Very colourful in there!
Might have to do some work tonight as out all day tomorrow. So looking forward to it though. Shame about being a year older!
Baby is going nuts kicking me in the last 24 hours. Actually stopped me sleeping last night!
11/05/2013 at 15:32
Lamby - you have a very good husband! Mine doesn't clean the house when I ask repeatedly, least not off his own back! Glad you had a good time this morning with your friends. We were thinking of going for a walk too but it's just started to rain here also. You now have me thinking about doing some baking...
Rusty - I was on the commuter train yesterday so hopefully the weekend crowd will be nicer to you. Hope you have a great day tomorrow at the Ritz! Happy birthday and enjoy gorging on all the scrummy cakes!
11/05/2013 at 16:39
Had my BP checked Tuesday and it doesnt leave an indent. To be honest my thighs have been really hard for a few months, and I didnt rally connect the two until I had a pedicure and the lady mentioned my calves were hard too. Think I'll just mention it to the MW next time.
11/05/2013 at 19:25
Hi all, Didn't get on Thurs/Friday - was at a wedding with zero phone signal (didn't know those places still existed!)
RKB, lots of baby out vibes before next weekend! Feels like yesterday since we were both on the TTC threads and now you're nearly at your due date!
Bexy, hope the wedding is a good'un
WH, enjoy your final weekend! Sounds like a nice one :)
PC, not sure about the water retention. When are you next seeing mw?
Ferbs, hoorah for mat leave!! Time to put your feet up and chill out, definitely no thinking about work!
Lamby, bless your H doing the cleaning unprompted! Hope the sweep on Monday brings results - it must work for some otherwise they wouldn't bother, surely!?
Rusty, the baby's room looks brilliant. I much prefer a colourful nursery to muted pastels.
AFM - had an immense 11 hours in bed last night, and yoga this morning. You'd think I'd be all relaxed and calm but instead I've been pretty irritable! RKB, like you, my cat is doing my nut in! He won't leave me alone and could do without it. Been out for a nice late lunch/early tea with H though - sticky BBQ ribs and fries. Yummy yum yum! Staying in with trashy tv tonight I think.
11/05/2013 at 20:07
Ah, 11 hours sounds fab!
12/05/2013 at 10:54
Morning Ladies! -
Bexy - hope your friends wedding went well and you had a good day!
WH - Happy Birthday to your brother! and Happy Due Date I'm hoping you're not here this morning in the nicest sense (i.e. you're off to have your baby!)
PC - Can't help with the water retention i'm afraid, but make sure you mention it to your MW! Hope your nieces birthday went well!
Ferbs - Sorry to hear about your trip on the London transport network. People can be so ignorant sometimes! It's not like we expect to be given priority or anything, but a little bit of courtesy goes a long way. Take it easy though! if your not working on Monday, go shopping then (Most people should be in work on a Monday!)
Lamby - My MW wouldn't give me a sweep before my due date, but i'm now taking the approach of Baby will be here when it's good and ready, so i'm not too bothered. How lovely to have your H tidying. I wish mine would do that. He doesn't even seem to want to clean up after himself just now, let alone tidy the house.
Rusty - Happy Birthday! Hope you're having a lovely day so far!
PW - I can't remember what it's like to have a solid 6 hours sleep anymore. 11 hours sounds fab! Hope you enjoyed your Yoga. Get used to the cat being in your face. They don't seem to quit! It's been a very quick 40 odd weeks hasn't it! I can't believe i'm nearly at my due date either!
AFM - Had a fab night last night! Although it was a hen do, it was actually a charity night we were at for Autism. Our table was by far the loudest. The band were really, really good....we then found out the singer will be on the X factor this year. He's really good. We don't know how far he's got, but we know he made it to the boot camp at least.
When we arrived, the organiser greeted us all. She noticed my bump (not that it's easily missed anymore) and asked when i was due. I wish i'd got a photo of her face when i said "oh I'm due this Thursday coming". We danced the night away, and my mum took a photo of me and my two sisters. I had no idea how big i'd gotten until i saw this photo... i'm 39+2 here.
12/05/2013 at 11:04
I'm still here! Had a couple of painful contractions last night but they stopped!
Good bump RKB!
12/05/2013 at 11:11
Boo! Sorry to hear that WH! I know you only need to wait until tomorrow, but still!
I'm off to the cinema today to see the new Star Trek movie, I hear it's really good!
12/05/2013 at 12:18
Great bump RKB! My friend went to see Star Trek yesterday and said it was fab. Not my thing but H is desperate to go! Have fun
WH, sorry to hear that things have stopped. The end is in sight though! If you don't get on tomorrow, wishing you the beat of luck for your induction and looking forward to hearing your BA
We have just been on a tour of the maternity unit at the hopsital ad bumped into 2 couples from our NCT class so had coffee with them after. Seeing the unit has made everything very real now! Off to meet friends in a bit for Sunday lunch. They are also expecting so no doubt there will be lots of baby talk!
12/05/2013 at 15:03
Rusty - Happy Birthday! Hope you are having a lovely day and enjoy your posh tea! Get yourself nice and spoilt :)
PW - 11 hours sounds bl00dy amazing, annoying though that you don't feel great for it. Your tea sounds immense and has made me want to hit the pub. Really can't be bothered though ha ha!
RKB - Lovely photo and sounds like a fab night! I didn't request a sweep, my Consultant asked me to have it, but of course would be quite happy if it worked!
WH - Sorry you are still here, unless anything happens today, good luck tomorrow and hope it is as short and sweet as possible!!
Ferbs - Ooh I was the same with the maternity tour - felt very real, and got me really excited (weirdo!) Hope you are enjoying your Sunday lunch and baby talk!
AFM -Not a lot going on, just watched H's footy team lose at the play off semi finals literally in the last minute, I was nearly crying which is obviously completely hormone related as I'm not into football at all! He's now given me permission to go into labour though, good of him! Had a long walk earlier and have been alternating between bouncing and chilling, might have a little nap shortly. It's all rock n roll in this house ;)
Have a nice Sunday all x

Hi all, hope you're having good weekends all round.
We went to a friend's wedding yesterday (I didn't last very well and was home in bed by 9pm!). Am shattered today. Doesn't help that I also have a chest infection so feeling quite tired and sorry for myself. H is going between working and doing boy stuff, which I'm getting increasingly irritated by, although he did take G out for a walk this morning which helped to burn some energy off!
WH hope all goes well for you tomorrow.
