Hopie have a wonderful (and well deserved) break.
Fx you return with news of a BFP!!
Glad DS is better now Blu! Good luck with getting the nursery sorted, then hopefully you can relax!
You are sooo close Bernie - can't wait to see pics of Baby Jameson and hear his birth story.
Jaspie what a great plan for you and OH to work reduced hours after mat leave so someone is always with Baby J. I so wish we could do that too, but the cost of living is so ridiculous here. Not that the cost of daycare isn't as well. Thankfully we get a year of mat leave here too so it's a while before we have to worry about daycare for Thomas. I just wish a heap of money would fall out of the sky in the meantime LOL.
Thomas was very active yesterday, love it. Last night I had a book and then a dinner plate resting on my bump and he kept kicking them off...DH was dying laughing. This weekend is our maternity photo shoot and our 6 year wedding anniversary, and next week I have 2 days off work!
Have a good time away hopie! blu, so glad your son is doing better!!! fit Im very jealous of your year off!!!! I wish we got just a little bit more here. I have been counting down the days til the 16th! im hoping that I have some dialation at my appt on Monday, because if not I have to decide whether to continue with the 16th and hope it doesnt take forever to induce or try to wait out 1 more week max. we also have the last high risk appt tmw so that will be the last time we sneak a peek before he gets here!! Have I mentioned that Im soooooooo ready lol. i look like a whale and i have tree trunks for feet and im still at work I do have to share my good news for today though! my insurance fully covered my medela breast pump! and that feels like a victory here in CA where they like to charge out the tush and cover nothing!
Hey everyone how was your weekend? Hope youre all well?
I cant believe how close you are to meeting Jameson Bernie!! Cant wait to hear all about it. Fit your bump looks brill, Im feeling pretty big this last week or so.
Jaspie hope your party went well and your getting prepared for the big move.
Hopie did you manage to relax iver the weekend? Dont feel guilty for having some me time.
DH has been away working since fri so DS and I have had a nice weekend just the 2 of us, im looking forward to having him.home tomorrow though even though he can be a pain in the arse and will bring me far too much washing back haha. Im on the final countdown now... last 4 weeks at work eeeeeekkkk x
Eeek Blu! 4 weeks left in work!! Yay! Glad you and DS had a nice weekend together.
Bernie hope your appointment today went well! Excited to hear your update!
Hopie and fit hope you're good xx
I had a great time at the party thanks! Had today off work and had midwife appointment and everything looks good, bump is measuring exactly 25 weeks so all good! Got my MatB1 so will sort out my maternity leave tomorrow. I have 10 weeks left in work not counting the 2 week Christmas break!
Bernie glad you got your breast pump covered, that's great news! I feel your pain though, the running joke here is that BC stands not for British Columbia but for "Bring Cash" because everything is so damn expensive.
Woo hoo 4 weeks of work left Blu, that is awesome!
Jaspie glad your appointment went well.
Hopie hope you're enjoying your time away and relaxing.
This weekend was our 6th wedding anniversary and our maternity photo shoot. Not sure how our photos will be since it was pouring rain with gusting winds, but our photographer was great.
Thomas's ultrasound is in 2 days, eek, it's been 12 weeks since we last saw him! 32 weeks today!
Hi Girls! glad you all had nice weekends! Jaspie the party sounds nice, and blue so glad you got to have some time with just DS thats wonderful. And I think hopie is still relaxing! lucky! Fit so glad you get to see thomas again! Its so exciting and comforting to see them! my Dr. appt went well and we are still scheduled for induction Monday so we just have days! I know how this whole thing works, but somehow Im still in shock that I will finally be someones Mom! We cant wait! tmw is my 29th Bday and my last day at the office so Im very excited and i have a lot to do today!!! Talk to you ladies soon!!!
Oh Bernie so exciting! I can't believe it's just a matter of days until Jameson's arrival! Our first little rainbow Happy birthday for tomorrow and hope you have a great last day in work!
Fit sounds like your photoshoot went well despite the weather. Have fun seeing Thomas again in 2 days! Happy 32 weeks!
Hi all - happy to see the updates! Fit- I can't believe it has been 12 weeks already since last scan and you are 32 weeks already! That is too funny about baby Thomas kicking the plate off your tummy. I had no idea kicks were so strong. How cool! And so cool you also get a whole year off there. So you have lots of time to consider daycare. I can't believe how expensive daycare is here. Back when we talked about it, we figured I would just stay home the first 5 years because with my salary, it wasn't worth working.
Bernie-- my gosh - do you have only 5 more days? I know you must feel uncomfortable and just like come on already. I feel it has gone so fast. Congrats on getting the pump covered. I have found too that persistence with insurance certainly does pay. We all are so excited for you!
Blu- hope you enjoyed day with DS and DH is back home now so you have some help. Did you say just 4 more weeks of work to go? Awesome! I did have a relaxing weekend, thanks. Did wonders!
Jaspie - already 25 weeks!! great you can start sorting out your mat leave. When do you guys move into your new home? Glad the party was great!
No happy news from me. Thought there was some hope but nope. Chances were so small. Guess we'll see what this week brings. Otherwise I really need to look into third party options -- time is just ticking away and I'm getting old!
Oh hopie big hugs hun, hang in there and keep trying and you will have your rainbow! Glad you managed to have a lovely weekend. After friday i only have 3 weeks at work its gone fast!!
Bernie im totally excited about the imminent arrival of our first rainbow baby 🙊 it seems to have flown by, the scary thing is.... im next! Omg! Happy Birthday xx
Fit I hope you post Thomas's ultrasound pic, i cant wait to see our little dude soon.
Jaspie I hope you feel better today? Any news on a move date?
I had a lovely day off lunching with my friend and her gorgeous squishy 4 month old. Cant believe ill have another baby soon, its so surreal.
Thanks so much Blu! I think I got 'spoiled' in the past. Only 2 other times we tried, it happened right away. This time I wasn't even certain of the dates since my cycle seems to be a lot shorter since the m/c -- they say that happens when you get older. Ugh. But thank you so much for the hope! Mother Nature has it all wrong. Some people - like myself don't get that strong urge to have a baby until later. I wish I had it sooner. Now it is so strong.. I just have to make this happen somehow!
Haha... yep, you're next!! I bet it feels surreal.. I feel like the time has just flown by for you guys. So so soo excited for you! Glad you had a lovely day with your friend and baby.
Bernie- the day is almost here!!! Wishing you all the best and can't wait to sign on here and see the news! ) Take good care Fit and Jaspie!
