Belated thanksgiving wishes to you ladies across the miles!
How is everyone?
Hopie im sorry things are rubbish with DF, we had a period like that around 20 weeks where we were bickering alot and we found having more time together helped lots, we all have rough patches, hugs xx
Fit Thomas' room sounds as though its coming togther beautifully, DH has to do the final few bits in ours this week then i hope we can relax before baby arrives.
Jaspie i hope the move went well? You should have lots of time to settle in before lil man arrives. Do you have any names in mind yet?
I had a really crazy day at work yesterday, will be glad to finish now next week although my first week off is pretty jam packed already so im hoping week 2 will be more relaxing. Today DS has yet another party (honestly ladies when your kids hit 3-4 they have a better social life than you do!!) and tomorrow we need a trip to Ikea for some lights etc. Im picking up babies mattress on wednesday then we can get the cot made up.
This shit is getting real now!!! 🙊

Hi ladies! Been so busy this week!
While I was at work yesterday OH moved most of the stuff in so I've spent the morning unpacking while he goes and gets the rest of it. We're still sleeping at the old house until Sunday so we can do things gradually. The corner sofa arrived this morning it is amazing I love it. Sooo comfy. Me and baby J are going to do lots of lying on this! Still got somemore to move but getting there.
Blu have a good ikea trip, we need to go there too! Probably go in the week though. We've got a couple of names we like, going to see what he looks like. How about you?
Fit that's amazing the mw got hold of Thomas's foot! Glad all went swimmingly at your appointment
Hopie sorry you and DH are going through a rough patch Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving?
Bernie hope all is well and you're settling into motherhood and life as 3!

Glad things are getting there Jaspie 👍
There are just no names that we love so i think we will end up seeing what he looks like when he arrives now, boys names are so much harder than girls i think.
I feel shattered tonight, was having lots of periody cramps earlier and a little gushes of discharge (sorry TMI) so wonder if my cervix is doing its thing.

I will be 37 weeks on wednesday! Weve had a productive day today and got all our baby stuff ready. Decided to buy the chicco next to me crib to use in our room today and it looks soooo lush.
How did the unpacking go? X

Jaspie glad the move went so well - the new couch sounds like a great place to snuggle with Baby J.

Blu you are so close now, hope you get to relax and put your feet up! Baby Blu will be here so soon, eek! Our due dates are only 13 days apart.

Hopie and Bernie hope you are both well.

So exhausted here, though I finally got an adequate amount of sleep last night for the first time in weeks. We had our furniture delivered this weekend and of course it didn't go smoothly and resulted in us having to go mattress shopping after the fact...at least the Black Friday sales were still on. Plus they didn't deliver our nightstand tables so now the yahoos are coming back next weekend.

So next weekend is when Thomas's furniture is finally being assembled, assuming a million other things don't go wrong between now and then.

Oh fit things never go to plan do they! So annoying when you just want it all finshed.
Ive not seen the snuzpod jaspie but will definitely be googling it. Hope you are all super happy in your new pad.
Bernie and Hopie how are you both?
I think were as ready for baby Blu as we can be now so my plan for this week is a big clean and getting the xmas decs up 🎄

Hi friends! Thanks for the holiday wishes -- Thanksgiving was wonderful (well despite my not-nice brother in law..ha!) My mom managed to do most of the cooking. She cooked for 3 days. And I ate enough in one day to last 3 days! It was just wonderful.
DF and I have made up too now. Thanks..yes, we all hit rough patches, don't we at times? I missed out on ttc last month and this month he will be in California. Ugh! It is his annual Christmas party they fly out to where the headquarters are. I have gone every year but this year no spouses invited , plus I don't way to fly away that far from my mom right now. Hopefully AF is bit late and then maybe this month will work..ha!

Congrats on the move Jaspie!! That is great you guys were able to do it gradually. Smart to get a very comfie sofa. I got one for DF last Christmas at West Elm-- looked so nice and was pretty comfie in store, but got it to the house and it is not comfie at all! Glad you are all done with your unpacking now. I have to look up what a snuzpod is!

Blu-- wow- you think things are starting to move along so maybe Baby Blu will arrive a bit earlier? Exciting!! I hope you can get a restful weekend in..you do so much between work, having a little one and everything else!

Fit- Such amazing news from your midwife appt.. Yeahh!!!
I didn't realize you and Blu are due only 13 days apart.. My gosh!
Sorry the furniture delivery didn't go as you hoped. Yes, surely things don't always go as planned. You guys got new floors too? That is the best. We have to get a new floor for the apartment so badly but are putting it off. Not sure what to do with the furniture when new floors are put in, as the building won't let us leave the furniture in the hallway! Good luck with Thomas' furniture assembling this week.

I bet Bernie is great and super busy..and tired! Let us know how life as 3 is going! Take good care mamas-soon-to-be!

Nice to hear from you Hopie, glad you had such a nice Thanksgiving and that you and DF are getting along again. Yes we replaced the floors too, they look amazing but what a pain! We had to rent a huge storage locker. Is there a space near your apartment that you can rent temporarily?

Hope you are having great weeks Blu, Jaspie and Bernie. Hope Baby Jameson is doing well and looking forward to hearing about Baby Blu's arrival any day now!

We are gradually getting the house put back together (hard when we both work full time and I can't move furniture) and Thomas's room is getting finished this weekend if it kills us!

Work is having a baby shower for me today which is so sweet, and they're also letting me use some leftover vacation time to start my mat leave early, so the 18th is my last day - can't wait!
