Hey friends, how are we all?
Fit how was your shower? Sounds like fun, not long left at work at all now!
Lovely update Hopie in glad you enjoyed thanksgiving and it sounds as though your mum is doing great 👍glad you made up with DF and hope you can TTC soon.
As for me ive finished work today and im officially knackered. Just got home from my christmas doo/leaving doo which was fab and the work girls bought me some beautiful flowers and gifts. Everyobe has been so amazing about baby that its hard to believe i now worried so much about taking the job!
My feet and ankles are ridiculously swollen tonight, not attractive at all so planning on some rest this weekend,speaking of which its bed time for me. Nite nite, look forward to more updates soon xx
Blu- congrats on your start of mat leave!! What wonderful colleagues you have...so nice! Yes, seems like last week you were pondering on taking the new job and finding out you were pg and now baby is due any week now!! It sure has flown, do you think? Hope elevating the ankles works some. Do compression socks help at all? i still make my mom wear them even though she is 7 months post-op...haha. It sure does help her circulation though! Thanks - she is doing better..seeing small improvements each week and I pray it continues.
Fit- thank you! I am glad things are better too with DF. Yes, what a pain having to rent a storage locker for the furniture, but I guess that is the only way really to have the new floors put in? Glad they look amazing - nothing like having shiny, new floors.
So great you start leave early now on the 18th -- next Friday- whoa! You sure are so busy/active with the home set-up and Thomas' room that I hope you get some good r&r time in too.
I bet your baby shower was fab! Tell us about it!
Jaspie- hope you are feeling good and all is well- I am sure busy with new home and Bernie- hope all is going great with the 3 of you!
TTC well..DF goes to Cali tomorrow. My first year not going and would have been perfect timing but oh well. I'm glad I am staying with my parents..just don't like being all alone anymore it seems. Have had a lot of memories this holiday season with first finding out we were pg this time last year.. It's tough..I still think back to it all would have been so perfect..so great.. but I trust God has a plan and I just need to keep the faith.
Any way, look forward to all of your updates!! Maybe Blu will surprise us with some early news next week?! Take good care. xxxx
Hey Hopie, i hope you catch the eggy before DF leaves! My ankles seem a little better since finishing work and the midwife came yesterday and said baby is engaged and ready to launch so I hope he doesnt make us wait too much longer. Im 38 weeks today and at this point with DS #1 was in labour.
How is everyone doing?
Hows motherhood Bernie? Xx
Hi girls! Shower was great, Thomas and I were so spoiled.
Sorry you don't get to go to Cali with DF Hopie. FX you get your BFP soon!!
Had a scare with my blood pressure yesterday - I checked it a bunch I'm the drugstore and it was in the 140s/90's range. But of course when I went to see the midwife and she checked it it was back down to a normal level.
They're going to check it once a week at my appointments and I'm being sent for lab work but I've been told to quit checking it myself as I've never been told to do so in the first place as it was always fine at my appointments.
Anyway it made me realize that I've been stressed and miserable with all the home renos lately which can't be helping, so I'm going to try take it easy a lot more.
Hi ladies! Glad to hear you're all well! Fit I'm glad your BP was normal at the midwife. Doing work at home is stressful because you just can't get away from it and have to live in the chaos. How much do you have left to do?
Hopie hope you get to try before DH goes away. Everything crossed. Yes it's weird to think that this time last year we had just found out we were pregnant with our angels Glad you have some company xx
Eeek Blu great news that baby Blu is engaged! Ready to launch is a great expression! Glad you're feeling better for finishing work. Fingers crossed something happens soon!
Bernie hope everything is going well!
We're all settled into our new house and loving it, it's cosy and homely already. We've decided on a wall decal for baby J's nursery and the cot was delivered yesterday kindly bought by the in-laws. Going to start decorating in the new year. Can't wait to break up for Christmas - 2 weeks off next Friday. Then in January only 4 weeks left in work!
I can't believe our next two rainbows are almost here!!!
Glad youre all settled Jaspie, the house sounds fab, do you have a theme for his nursery?
Fit taking it easy sounds good, my BP has crept up a bit too, its still in normal range but high for me. Hows baby Thomas's room coming on?
Ive decided to have a clary sage bath shortly in the hope of kicking things off x
Oh thats gorgeous, they have some jungle themed bedding etc thats very similar to that in mothercare. We still need to order some wall art but I think I want something with his name on so we will have to wait haha.
Im having lots of periody cramps today, really hope it turns into something x
Hi girls sorry I've been MIA. Feeding every two hours, lack of sleep and the visitors have made the last couple weeks a little hectic. So happy to read your updates and Blu, I can't believe you are so close!!! Can't wait! Fit the shower sounds wonderful and jaspie, I love the nursery! Hopie glad to hear your moms doing well and hope your DD gets back soon! You all are going to love motherhood! It's exhausting but starring at your baby is the best feeling in the world! I'll be on here more, I can't wait for the babies to be here
