Blessed - good luck for the scan today and of course, update us when possible PS. im glad u slept good too... makes me feel less guilty Beautiful bump too
Vitfa - nothing wrong at all with blubbing like a baby... and so glad ur getting the care/observation you need xxx
emera - sorry hun..... but im excited cant help it
PS. how far apart should contractions be before we ring labour ward? i cant remember...
Mitch - let us know how ur hubbys interview goes I hear you on stressy jobs... at the moment i cover London up to Derbushire/nottinghamshire but when i return to work i will be covering the whole of England. Training that many staff and doing that many over night stays with a newborn is well, impossible. I know deep down that i need to look for a new job on mat leave
Crowned... you as well! Update us!
P.Blaze - ahhh i love unexpected baby gifts and hun you DONT really have perhaps another month to go... because they would induce you just before going 2 weeks overdue right? and besides, your not going to go that far over.... positive thinking
Pristock - i kept you and your family in my thoughts that day and we are always here for you hunni; whenever you want to check in xxx so much love to you xxx
Hi Lads....hope all are well and babies are behaving...
Pristock - thanks for popping in and our love as always...
Vitfa - sorry to hear your swelling is no better and your BP is a bit up too - having something this big in your abdomen must put such a strain on our bodies - so glad you had a midwife appointment and they can monitor you now...and I would have blubbed too. think positively and all those foot rubs from DH that you now MEDICALLY need!!!
Mitch/FT: work police checking in to say I'll be keeping a close eye on you once babies are here.... hope your DH interview goes well Mitch!! Similar situation here Mitch with DH given up his job to do self-employed work, hugely increases his wage to what we were both on and means I don't have to go back either - I will want to go back to work but its nice for the pressure to be off if my work don't offer part-time (which they wont!! or never have done before!!!)
Emera - OMG YOU ARE SOOOO GOING TO BE A FEBRUARY FRITTATA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm pretty excited for one of us to be contracting, and every 10 minutes?? Thats immense. Go baby go!!!!!
AFM - been up since 5am, including 6 wee's in 6 hours of being in bed. Done some much needed pruning in the garden, been swimming, walked the dogs...got yoga later but not sure i can be bothered but a little bit of me thinks at least i'll be tired later and maybe sleep better???!
I can't believe this hasn't been mentioned yet but PANCAKE DAY!!!! I want your suggestions please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm a bit of a fan of lemon and sugar and for the pancakes to be quite thin and crispy....nom nom nom xxx
WAULA - urgh just READING what you have been up to makes me tired LOL Poor you and lack of sleep though, that sucks
I meant to mention pankcake day earlier actually... im a typical pankcake with sugar and lemon or syrup girl myself boring i know. not a fan of jams etc. I might have some ice cream and maple syrup though... yum
Urghhhhh i dont know whats brought it on but i REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYY want to go to an all you can eat chinese where i can fill my plate wtih chinese appetisers, with heaps of seaweed and loads of satay sauce any other food just pales in comparison..... boo......
Vitfa, did she take bloods from you when she said your BP was up? I'd have thought she'd want to do a LFT etc.
Emera, keep that pacing going trying some belly dancing too please.
Just been to my aunties, she bought me a lovely little pack of lovely organic baby products, and ordered us the foot muff for the quinny. I'm so excited to be 38 weeks! It's mad, but it did make me realise I actually could have another month to go (boo hoo).
She didnt no - im back at clinic end of the week to recheck if higher then she said more action will need to be taken - im assuming this means bloods and a trip to the mat hospital -
Hi ladies, I'm back from the midwife.
She said baby is completely engaged, and that she expects I'll be having a baby within a week or so. I'm both terrified and excited by this! I would really like to hold out until next Monday, as that's when DH is beginning a week off school AND when my regular midwife is back from vacation, but we'll see if baby agrees.
crowned that's quite some news!!!!!!!!! do you feel like LO is completely engaged??? Your range of faces made me laugh!!!! So its between you and Emera...who has gone quiet...eeeeeeeeeeeeep!!!!! Is there such a thing as labour dust???! xxx
Well, been for a walk with OH and cooked dinner for Roh and OH, I ate a bit too, but not that hungry! Its been a couple of hours now I think, OH timed a few contractions for me, and it seems they are around 5-8 minutes apart now. Still able to talk through them though. I've no idea if they are going to keep it up, not really sure if I should call my mum or not, she'll be pretty pissed off with a false alarm I think, its 1.5 hours each way to get here hmmm, what to do...
Sorry for not replying properly to people, have skimmed through, but not really able to focus. Trying to be very zen! not easy with Roh and OH tearing about shrieking!
Wow Crowned, so you could end up being a February Mum too!
Waula/FT - I'm with you on the pancakes - lemon & sugar normally. Although I also like golden syrup. There's a crepe van parked about a mile away from my house and i did have his nutella & banana a couple of weeks ago. I might try that tomorrow, but i don't think anything really beats lemon & sugar.
ooh, can't wait until tomorrow night now! Maybe i'll also have some for breakfast actually.
oooh emera...this sounds GOOD!!!! 5-8mins apart is good stuff!!! you keep all zen i'd probably give your mum a heads up just in case... a lot can happen in 1.5hrs and did you not have a fairly fast labour last time???! xxx
EDIT: my money is now on Emera....(sorry crowned!!!! )
