It feels like the cramps when you have a tummy bug so I asked her if it was normal and she said: yeah, probably but just call triage if it gets worse? That was her answer to most questions. So a bit useless. Anyone else have cramps like that? My tummy just feels bruised
My midwifes get 15mins per app in the health centre I go to ... So if you work out 9-5 is 8hrs, with an hour of for lunch, 7 x 4 = 28 ladies she has to see in one day, some ladies got more problems then others and you always get chatters! ... It's easy to see how they could rush some people ... Or fall behind!

My next app is Monday at 10pm... Bet il be in there for 5 mins max! They do feel like a waste time sometimes

Oh I see! Sorry Lol
It's not that bad as both my kids are at school but it can be hard getting up and ready for the school run everyday, Then from 8.45am-3.15pm their at school. Weekends can be tiring when they argue over silly things but I just try and ignore them x

I've got Marielle who will be 2.5 next month. I worked in a hotel bit am on mat leave now, but I also run my own business which is taking up quite a lot of time. So Marielle goes to nursery 2 afternoons a week so I can catch up with things. But this pregnancy is so much more tiring than the first one as I could just sleep whenever I wanted lol

Sorry about your MW pebbie. Mine is okay but there is currently no need for much to happen in an appointment. Last time I would see a midwife twice a week and then every time get sent to hospital for monitoring for a few hours or days. I'm a bit surprised they are not doing more blood tests on you though.

I am pregnant with a toddler and am a full time student. Currently I am working between 7-11 hours a day (near 11 when DH is off on a weekend and closer to 7 once he gets home in the week) to finish my dissertation. It is not so bad though because it is a lot easier when DH is helping with childcare for me to get some work done than attempting to get work done while looking after DS1 which is close to impossible.

Morning ladies, just dropped in quickly last night to catch up but if spent most of the day cleaning and scrubbing floors which really did me in. So tired.
Dh came home to tell me that a girl that works for him has just had her baby she was about 4wks ahead of me. Unfortunately she's had loads of complications and is in icu as her kidneys have started to shut down. On top of that her baby was born with downs syndrome and they didn't know. Looks like they don't offer screening at Bristol hospital. I feel so sad for her and now even more terrified for me and dh wouldn't let me talk about it last night. Whenever I try and talk about my worries he brushes it off. He seems to think pregnancy and delivery is super easy and at the minute if I Complain about a sore back or hips then I'm whining! last night I asked him to rub my back and he jabbed me with his thumb for less than a minute before he was snoring in my ear. Euggh rant over.

Anyway off to my cloth nappy demo today hoping to get some good info and maybe even some bargains

Sorry about your DH not being sympathetic, Zfbaby. DH wasn't last time either, when the consultant told me I was in early labour (even though I knew I wasn't) and put in a delivery suit the complained it would make him late for work and then left and he constantly complained how inconvenient the whole pre-eclampsia thing was for him. This time he is more sympathetic even though the back-pain I have isn't a medical issue like the last half if my pregnancy was with DS1.

I hope you enjoy the demo. Are you going to buy any today?
