Hey Jaspie, thanx for starting the new thread! I have to say im a little pissed at the closing of our thread 😬
How are we all?
So glad OH felt baby kick, how exciting is that.
Bernie your due date is creeping so close, it seems to have flown by.
How are you fit and Hopie?
I'm doing OK, the SPD seems easier the last few days I'm just struggling to get comfy especially at night time and have stacks of pressure where baby is lying. I'm looking forward to the end of this pregnancy now and hoping the next few weeks go fast. DS has been poorly all week with a virus and inflammed ears the poor thing, blooming winter bugs! I've just gotten into bed now, ready for a rest 😀
Thanks for starting this Jaspie!! Yay for OH feeling Baby J kick. Thomas played hard to get for ages before my DH got to feel kicks too. After DH would come running only for Thomas to hide DH would say "you're a little ba$tard just like your dad."
Glad you're feeling a wee bit better Blu but sorry DS is ill - hope the little guy gets well soon.
How are you Hopie and Bernie? Are you in the 2ww Hopie? Bernie you are so close now!!
I am out of work 2 hours early after the day from hell to go to my midwife appointment. On the plus side I found out I still have several vacay days left so I've already booked 2 of them off, yay!
DH and I have our first prenatal class (of 6) tonight.
Happy v-day Jaspie and happy 24 weeks!!! Time is flying.
Prenatal class went well - I'm the furthest along in the class and will be 37 weeks when we finish - whoa.
Midwife appointment went great. My bump is now measuring a bit over a week ahead, Thomas demands roomy accommodations LOL. The midwife palpated him and he is head down and anterior which is ideal - hopefully he'll stay there.
Hope you ladies have a great day! not looking forward to work grrr but I just keep telling myself only 51 days until my last (half) day and I have 2 days off next week!
Hey ladies! glad I found you! bummer that we got shut down! Im doing well. we are all ready for jameson! until last night I realized i need to pack a hospital bag for me too lol 13 days til induction day!!!! Glad you guys are doing well. and Jaspie thats wonderful you feel him kicking!!! and blu this boy does the same thing!!! sorry about the app everything ok?
Hi! So glad to find you guys again.. Thank you Jaspie for setting up this new thread. Great name!! On the plus side of group getting closed, I finally managed to find your pregnancy journal and read back a bit - Adorable photo of baby bump-- you look just fabulous!!! Amazing OH felt baby J kick!!!!
I get so overwhelmed with all of the different groups/threads on this board, that I usually just stuck with our old one. Guess the moderator thought it was disrespectful since m/c board, but I like to think all of your stories gave lots of hope to anyone who might have read it.
Fit- you are just about 31 weeks now? Time sure is flying like crazy! Great appt. and yes, that would be ideal if baby Thomas stays in that position.
Good you get to take some extra much needed vacay days. How long maternity leave do you guys get in Canada?
Bernie - just about 12 more days!! Funny- I would probably think of packing my own bag at the last minute, glad you thought of it soon before. We are all soo excited for you!
Blu- sorry to be a moron but what is SPD? I hope you feel more rested tomorrow and yea- so many little kids sick this time of year. Hope DS feels all better soon. I think you need an all-about-Blu day on Saturday. Do whatever you want and get lots of r & r. I bet these last weeks of pregnancy will go fast..Time is flying.
Yes, I guess I'm on a sort of 2ww here. Chances really are like 1 in I dont even know how many thousand. Such a long shot. I had cramps yesterday, which was really strange. Implantation cramps 10 days after? Hmm.. I just like to symptom hunt because I am well, bored and feeling hopeful makes me happy.
Time to cook dinner for my parents.. Asian chicken..yum! Take care mamas-soon-to-be!
Hopie that's what I thought, that it might give people reading it some hope. But I guess if they clicked on it they would just see pregnancy chat rather than the journey it took to get there. I hope it didn't upset anyone. Oooh fx for implantation cramps! There's no reason it can't be your month.
13 days til induction day Bernie! Wow! I feel like it's gone so fast!
Fit glad you had fun at your antenatal class, I'll be 31 weeks starting my NCT classes and 36 weeks when I finish
OH and I started talking about what to do about work after maternity leave. I'm going to take a year off and then we're thinking of me working 2 days a week and OH working 3 days a week so that there's always one of us with the baby and then I'll get my full mat leave allowance and also mat leave in the future when we have our second. I like the thought of OH being with him for 2 whole days too just the 2 of them
DS is much better thanks he will be back at school tomorrow, he ended up on antibiotics for a nasty ear infection and perforated ear drum the poor thing.
Hopie im so excited for your TWW, have everything crossed for you, what an amazing christmas gift that would be!! SPD is where the ligaments holding the pelvis together become too loose so the pelvis bones move and cause pain around the hips or between the legs! Its not much fun.
Jaspie your pregnancy is flying by rapidly and your bump is really cute, your plan for work post baby sounds good 👍
Bernie you will be a mommy in less than 2 weeks, OMG!! Cant wait to see pics of our first rainbow babe. Are you feeling ready?
Fit how was antenatal? Wouldnt worry too much about baby measuring ahead they never know how much water etc there is and theres plenty time for it to change. Are you feeling ok?
Im 33 weeks today, really think I need to start packing my hospital bag soon, I still need to get a few bits and pieces like a few nighties, granny pants and toiletries. Im looking forward to getting babies room sorted now then we just need to get his car seat and moses basket etc down out of the loft.
Lovely that we can all still keep in touch 😊 xx
Thanks Blu and Jaspie. Strange to have cramps like I did the other day!
Jaspie- that is so awesome you get 1 year off maternity leave (I think it is like 8 weeks here). And soo great baby J will spend 2 days with his dad and the other 3 with you. That is so sweet!
Yes- I like to think our old post gave people hope. While really bored once, I read a thread that actually had as many posts as our's did..I skimmed a lot but it was interesting to see how the ladies ended up over the years! (ttc after a loss board).
CONGRATS on V day, I forgot to say that yesterday!
Blu- thanks for explaining SPD. Ouch. Did you have that while pg with your son? Are there any stretches that could help - or anything that helps? Glad it is a bit better today and glad DS is on the mend with the rx.
Amazing you are 33 weeks today! And Bernie will be a mom in less than 2 weeks. Thanks for the excitement and well wishes, I guess next week I will know but chances might be higher of actually winning the lottery.
Fit- how are you and what are the classes like?
I'm going to take a few days off from the internet, from my parents, from life, really. I haven't given much effort to my relationship..so we're going to enjoy some time over the next few days. I feel badly leaving my mom for 5 full days, but I need a break, as terrible as that sounds. I hope to come back next week refreshed and can't wait to see all your updates! Wonderful weekend, everyone and Blu- get some good rest!
