ferbs hope things are progressing well for you.
bexy baby out vibes for you.
had a lovely meal at our wedding venue last night. Its lovely as the wedding coordinator always remembers us, although my top obviously wasnt tight enough as she didnt realise I was pregnant until h mentioned it!
off to london today to see charlie and the chocolate factory.No cheap hotel, which is a shame, but going to enjoy the day anyway!

I was too slow! Have pasted mine here:
Morning all, hope the sun is shining where you are. We're back from our little break, it was lovely to have some time away and my parents were fab with helping with the boys, but it is nice to be home.
All well with baby, still very active and I feel the size of a house already, with another 10 weeks growing still to do! H decorated the nursery while I was away, so hopefully later today I can get in there and start sorting stuff out - want to put the girls stuff away but keep the boys stuff until we know for certain, just in case they are wrong!
Lovely news whilst away as well, my neighbours who have had a long TTC journey are expecting twins this year, so pleased for them and their daughter.
And we *might* have agreed on a girls' name - not the one I have liked all along but something different which H and Joshua suggested at the same time.
Lots of baby out vibes for Bexy and anyone else who needs them - was lovely to see some BAs whilst away, congrats again to RKB & Munchkin!
Bunny, have a fab time at the theatre!

Ahh we all went for it at the same time! Have posted mine again here!
Good morning ladies
Well, following on from my last post, things now appear to have stopped completely and all pain has gone away. Am still having some show and my bowels have been quite regular (sorry for TMI!) so am hoping that this is my body gearing up...albeit very slowly! Been trying to get things moving by bouncing on the ball, walking and even agreed to MU! Fingers crossed something more substantial will happen soon! Baby out vibes would be much appreciated!
Plan today is to try and carry on as normal. Going for amother walk with H then have friends coming round later.
Have a good day all.
Ferbs (39 weeks today!!)

Margot, glad that you had a good break away and exciting about maybe having decided on a girls name!
Bunny - have fun at the theatre this evening
01/06/2013 at 10:17
Bunny enjoy Charlie and the chocolate factory!
Margot glad you had a nice break, exciting to have a girly name sorted!
Ferbs lots of baby out vibes, if not have a relax in the sun conserving your energy for labour!
Afm not much going on, my H is digging up the Tarmac on our drive to block pave next week, which will look lovely when done I'm sure but I currently have a skip on my font lawn and soon several tonnes of paviours. The mess is driving me mad, but once it's done our house is finally finished after 4 years! Just In time for baby. Lots of moving, midwife coming out next week and hoping to convince gp on monday that I can go back to work next week, still in pain but being at home doesn't make it much better

Quick update. Had sweep booked this morning with midwife but she had a feel and seemed to think baby may be breech which may explain why head not engaging. so currently at hospital waiting for a scan to see what's going on.
Will update later x

Bunny - glad you had a lovely evening, enjoy the theatre!
Margot - Shame you had such rubbish weather down here at the beginning of the week, its flipping lovely now! And good news on the name, I really like your first choice, and its on our list but I think we'll settle on another as H isnt keen. The name thing really stresses me out!
Ferbs - lots of baby out vibes to you! Have a lovely evening.
DF - have you been to physio for your scaitica? The exercises I got given have been amazing, its pretty much gone now! Hope your H doesnt make too much mess, you have my sympathy on that one!
AFM - bean has been wriggly this morning after a quiet couple of days so that's good. Had a lovely evening at friends last night, and have borrowed her medela swing so pleased about that. H is working this afternoon/evening so I'm off to a friends for a little bbq with her and her son. Make the most of the sun it may be gone by next week!
01/06/2013 at 11:25
Bunny - enjoy London. Meal out last night sounds lovely, don't know when H and I last got out just the 2 of us!
Margot - glad you had a lovely time away. Are you going to share the girls name or keeping it a secret?
Ferbs - how frustrating, hope things kick off soon
Duckford - I'd be the same re the mess but it will be great when it's all finished. I have so many jobs I want doing in our house but not enough money to do them all!
Bexy - hope scan goes OK and baby isn't breech, let us know how you get on
AFM - 33 weeks today. Have woken up in nesting mode and have been clearing out cupboards and wardrobes, cleaning windows and may make a start on sorting through baby stuff next. Currently having a tea and biscuit break. My H is working today and tomorrow so I'm stuck in with the kids as we only have one car and I can't be bothered walking anywhere. Luckily it's dry just now so they're out in the garden but I think it's to rain later :-( Only 3 more shifts left at work, this time next week I'll be finished for a year :-)
Hope everyone else is well
01/06/2013 at 12:01
Bexy - missed you there earlier, hope the scan goes well and its not breech just awkward!
Ally - I'm still waiting for nesting to kick in, my H is doing that so far!
01/06/2013 at 12:28
Hi all, hope you're having nice weekends!
Bunny, have fun at the show! Nice that you're close enough to pop into London for the day!
Margot, sounds like it's all go with lots of nice stuff recently. Are you going to disclose the name?!
Ahh ferbs, sorry things have slowed down. I was hoping for a BA this morning! Hopefully it'll get going again soon
DF, goodness - digging up tarmac sounds quite ambitious! More than a bit of casual DIY anyway. Hope you're enjoying the sun
Oh Bexy, hope the scan brings some answers. How frustrating x
PC, yay for a wiggly bean! Enjoy the BBQ
Ally, ahhh nesting! Don't overdo it!
AFM - We've been moving furniture this morning and now I'm off to meet a random girl for lunch. I 'met' her on twitter, had coffee about 3 months ago but not spoken since (even on twitter), but have just got round to meeting up again! She's due 3 days after me at the same hospital and lives 5 mins away so I figure a good friend to have during mat leave. Hopefully we have enough to chat about again - I'm pretty shy so this is quite ambitious for me!!

Hi all...back for an update...sorry no time for personals..hope your all well..
So baby isn't breech...saw a new midwife this morning and she was 60% sure it was breech but a scan has shown that baby is head down just not engaging. Anyway....home now but back in first thing in the morning to be induced. EEEEKKKK!!
01/06/2013 at 16:12
Hope it goes well Mrs, good luck! Xx
01/06/2013 at 16:39
Hey guys am on my phone so aplogies for the lack of personals. Just wanted to say say eeekkk to Bexy! Great news baby is unlikely to be engaged. Hope all goes well with induction tomorrow. Am thinking of you lots xxxx
01/06/2013 at 17:26
Thanks ladies! Ferbs i hope things get going for you again soon Hun! Take care xxx
01/06/2013 at 17:33
Late back to this, been a busy day.
Ferbs, hope things pick up again soon.
Bexy, hope induction goes well tomorrow and you are holding your baby soon.
No big secret with the name - it's Emily, which H suggested, I'm just impressed that he suggested something sensible! It suits my taste as classic and not too flowery, so looks like the front runner at the moment, just need a middle name now - I like Ruth.
01/06/2013 at 18:30
Bexy - hope all goes well tomorrow
Margot - I love the name Emily, so pretty.
01/06/2013 at 22:22
Good luck with induction Bexy. Hope it's a quick one!
Margot, Emily is a lovely name. Good taste by your boy there. Emily Ruth sounds great too.
I had my baby shower at Mum's today with the Reading girls and M's godmother. Was rather caketastic (Hope my GD MW doesn't see this!!!) and I got some lovely pressies. Got some lovely Mum to be smellies so going to have a pamper session tomorrow I think! (Working tonight otherwise I'd be in the bath already!)
The stuff for my hospital bag is strewn all over the bed, must go and do something with that in a minute!
Weather looks fab again for tomorrow so will spend the day in the sun with M. Mr R is playing golf! Schools have inset here on Monday so Odeon kids is still on so I might take her to see Wreck it Ralph then.

Morning ladies, am broken after spending the day at a wedding yesterday. Had to leave before the party was even underway which is so unlike me! Lovely day but hips are hurting and am so tired today. Today is a big family BBQ with the parents of the bride, then tomorrow it's back to work which will be a shock to the system after 3 weeks at home. He me asked to finish early though so fingers crossed they agree to that.
02/06/2013 at 08:04
That's 'have' asked to finish early... Stoopid autocorrect on iPad!
Also forgot to say - love the name Emily Margot, and also baby out vibes for those that need them :)
02/06/2013 at 08:45
Bexy, hope it goes well today!!Good luck!
Margot, Emily is a lovely name!
Rusty, glad you enjoyed your baby shower! I'm a golf widow today too! Enjoy the sunshine
Dinx, you'll be exhausted by Monday! Enjoy the BBQ - good weather for it!
AFM - did a lot of walking yesterday and was generally pretty productive, but hips and back and aching today! Feel like I've run a marathon! Hoping this isn't going to become a regular thing as third tri has been such plain sailing so far!
Have a good day all xx
