Morning ladies, hope everyone is well. I had a lovely afternoon & evening y.day. There were 2 babies at my coffee date, a 1 week old and a 4 week old! They were so cute but so tiny. Im scared again that im going to have responsibility for one of them soon! scary!!
Myevening was very entertaining as everyone got soooo drunk, Not jealous of their hang overs this morn!
Im heading off to my mum's in a bit then going to a Hitched meet up this afternoon!
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Mrs Bass- sounds like a lovely day you had yesterday and another one planned for today, enjoy! Oh and happy full term to you today, eeeks!
I shouldnt have said I had the best nights sleep thursday night as last night was horrendous!! Me, my mum and sister went shopping in town. I felt fine up until about an hour beire we came home and my pelvis, groin area was a little achy. Then last night omg, could I sleep?! It was that painful, I tried to wedge a pillow between my thighs, was pacing up and down the landing, bouncing on my ball and all in all had about an hours sleep. In the end I had to take some paracetamol, the first time Ive taken any sort of pain killers during my pregnancy. I must have overdone the walking. Its still aching this morning but as soon as hubby got up about seven, I was able to get a couple of hours sleep. Sorry for the moany post...grrr im turning into an old woman, ha!
Today friends are popping in for a cuppa, around 10.30 and then it was planned we were going to go to Ikea, might go this afternoon or tomorrow but either way I'm taking it easy :-)

Happy weekend everyone. You ladies are all so close now! Scary but exciting.
Mrs B - I am enjoying watching other people make fools of themselves drunk :) enjoy your day.
Gemini - good idea about resting up this weekend.
Custard - enjoy shopping and seeing the in laws. Hope the movements are a positive sign.
Afm - planning a really quiet weekend maybe with some Christmas shopping i can be bothered. Had an awful nights sleep and really only nodded off at 8am. Had my whopping cough jab yesterday and it absolutely kills so I couldn't sleep on that arm. Work has been ridiculous this week and yesterday we had a mini family drama which I think has given me a headache and jaw ache from grinding my teeth. Anyway moan over. Going to start looking at cots this week so I'm looking forward to that.

Mrs b - hope your day was fab
Gemini- I really hope the stories about the pelvis/sleeping stuff really are true I.e it goes straight away!
Custard - my lo does some huge moves now - looks really funny (and feels odd too!!)
Little dude - it does ache doesn't it! I had a golf ball lump for well over a week! Hope yer teeth grinding worked- what is it with families at times like these? Grrr
Afm- mum has indeed come round now which is nice. Had a visit from the I laws today which was good and then tonight we have a takeaway tea planned and a very lazy day tommo!!

Thanks Gemini- People keep saying "oh, any day now then"! Yikes!
Custard- I know, they should have it in small print on those sticks we peed on! Ive found my bumb geting more active the last couple of weeks and the movemnts have been more visable!
Little Dude- sounds like you need to lock ur self away and relax! My arm only hurt for a couple of days after my WC so hope yours is better soon!
weemee- hope you enjoy ur lazy day today!
I had a great time with the Hitched gang. Im being very well looked after by my mum! Bless her! heading home after lunch in an attempt to miss crazy M4 traffic then a lasy afternoon and early night planned. Have to be at work at 7:30 tomorrow! Yuck! That is usually when my alarm goes off!
24/11/2013 at 10:03
Mrs Bass- safe trip home later, hope the traffic isn't too bad!
I slept well last night, thank goodness! The trip to ikea went well, we bought the storage units and boxes then got the changing mat and gro bags from Mamas and Papas as they had 30-50% off so they were cheaper than most other places in the end.
Today its a day of jobs, putting up the vinyl stickers and sorting out bits and bobs around the house. Hubby has already made himself a list and had been to the tip by 9.15, all whilst I was asleep, bless him. Hes a good 'un! Just need the blind to arrive tuesday and decide on some curtains. I like the brightly coloured tab topped ones from mamas and papas but we only have a short window. Could end up buying new from ebay and getting the MIL to chop some off and hem them again. Might do a flash tomorrow if the stickers are my friend and go up easily, doubt it though!

I've had proper drama re my ongoing UTI issues this week. Saw Midwife Wednesday but was at home in afternoon, she advised taking fresh urine sample to surgery in morning as they get sent for testing at 1pm. So I did and requested a doctor appointment for when results were back. Well the receptionist was trying to book an appointment for a weeks time, pointed out I was 35Weeks and needed antibiotics asap... And the next thing I know I was being ushered into Doctors office!!! (Wasnt quite what I wanted - I meant 24hrs later when they'd tested wee. But whatever. Was prescribed antibiotics and anti-sickness tablets (for labour). Well all good, starting taking antibiotics..... 24hrs later (and not feeling any better) the GP rings - results are back. The bacteria is resistant to the antibiotics I've been prescribed. Aarrghh! So new prescription issued for different antibiotic - the penicillin one I had in October that made me queasy, terrific!
Anyway, so far, not feeling sick yet but only on day 3 of 7 ....

It looks fab! And I'm glad i wasn't the only one who found the letters tricky!

It was just positioning them and making sure they were all straight and level that was the hard part, without them sticking to my hands!
I love them though, makes the wall really vibrant!
