Just trying to get everything together now! Time isn't waiting for anyone!
Take care ladies and have a fab Sunday and lovely week
Glad your placenta has moved!

Can they only estimate the baby weight from a scan?

Totally agree. I also think what I've wanted has changed since my initial research, mainly due to my teeny boot space!!

You definitely sound more outdoors than me so I agree, something 3 wheeler would be perfect for you. I will be walking, but just in town so I want something light and not too bulky

Has anyone started getting things ready for their hospital bag? I've got a few bits so far.. really not looking forward to the joys of maternity pads and big knickers! Some 'to pack lists' say to get disposable knickers.. I can't think of anything worse so I'll probably just get some cheapy primark ones!

I've had to come downstairs as I woke up super early and didn't want to wake DH up with my tossing and turning.

Had brekkie... now think I need another one!

They measured the thigh bone, abdominal and head circumference and determined it from that... 1910g... No wonder my back bloody aches!

And re the muddle post, don't laugh smawfl... You'll set me off!! He he he... I'm being drained of oxygen!!

I think I'm making a slow start. Bought some black bath towels! How random! Going to use a pulley case for me and LOs changing bag for baba's things.

I'm 100% with you on the cheap pants as opposed to disposable!

Plan for today... Spaghetti hoops on toast for breakfast, walk, christening this afternoon. I'm gonna need a siesta by 3 o'clock!! x

Didn't mean to upset you FSB, don't feel bad!!!!!!!!!

As for hospital bag...we are still trying to decide on home vs hospital and I'm about 60% home leaning...but either way I think i will still have a bag ready so I'll have to work on that but probably not until fall!

Argh i have to work this afternoon/evening! So annoying after being a teacher and never having to work weekends...

FSB - thanks for the birthday wishes, I'll gladly take them despite it not being my bday Your posts sound so much like how I'm feeling at the moment! I'd thought baby brain was just a handy excuse prego ladies could use for forgetting things, but I now know it is REAL!! And not only does it makes you forget things it makes you very muddled up sometimes! Hope you've had a good day and glad the scan went well

Smawfl - I was chatting to a lady at my aqua class about hospital bags, she had started hers. Well she had 2 - like you FSB - one for her and one for the baby. She said she'd been told by a friend who'd had a baby that disposable pants were for the best as by that stage when you need them you'll just want to throw them away. I suppose if they're just cheap pants then you can still do that. Not looked at prices but guessing disposables might actually be more expensive than some cheap Primark ones? I'm also scared by the thought of maternity pads

Gaia - hope the pram search doesn't take too much longer for you!! I know how the hours can disappear when you're researching these things though. It'll be worth it in the end!

Shh - hope you got a few more bits done this weekend? I didn't realise how quickly my bump would start to get in the way of everything. Seemed that I was fine with most activities up until 3rd tri and then suddenly this massive bump appeared and has seriously slowed me down! I know I'll miss having a bump, but at the same time I'm looking forward to having baby in my arms and being able to put her down, rather than carrying her around all day in my tummy!

Had a lovely day in London, went for a nice lunch then had a trip down the river on a boat, then got off at Greenwich and had an icecream in the park. Got a bit sunburnt but it was nice to actually feel some sun on me, so I don't mind too much! I got lots of tummy strokes from my friends, which I liked, although baby wouldn't perform for them, she went still as soon as they put their hands on my tummy! The tube was totally packed and I was very happy when on the first journey a nice man got up and offered me his seat However, this only happened on that first journey, got lots of other trains and no one offered me their seat. I wasn't desperate to sit down and was fine standing, it was just interesting to see people's different responses. I don't get public transport when I'm at home so it's probably the only time anyone is going to have given up their seat for me.

Having nice restful day today - yesterday was exhausting!

Hi ladies HAPPY 30 WEEKS to you, Pusscat, and to DS! It's been a while since we've seen her around here...DS hope you're doing well! And Pusscat, glad you had a good time in London!

Shh, glad you had a nice day with your daughter.

Shh and Smawfl, I'm really sorry about the SPD...Smawfl, hope you get some good advice and relief at your appointment this week.

FSB, I'm glad to hear your placenta has moved up, that's great news 4 lb 3 oz sounds like a really good weight!!

Smawfl, I have a bag out in the nursery that I've designated as the hospital bag, but I haven't put anything in it yet we just finished clearing out the nursery last week so I'm still basking in that success. But I should pack soon.

Gaia, how cool that you are still leaning toward home birth. What are the factors pulling you either way? I would definitely consider that if I weren't high risk.

AFM, not much to report either, making slow but steady progress on preparations...which I think is nice actually; it doesn't feel overwhelming and it gives me a lot to look forward to.

Even though my bump has always measured just 1cm behind, I don't feel like it has grown nearly as much as I thought it would by now, and people's comments about how small I am are starting to get to me a little. Fortunately I have a growth scan on Fri, which will hopefully set my mind at ease.

Munchkin does seem to be getting stronger, judging by his movements. AND I am pretty sure he's head down now based on where I feel hiccups. Fingers crossed!! He seems to prefer my right side and usually has one of his joints wedged into my side. I think it's an elbow but it might be a knee. Hope to find out at the scan.

Have any of you spoken to your doctors about labor or a birth plan or anything like that? I plan to start talking to mine about that starting next time I see him, which is in about 3 weeks since he'll be away for my next appointment.

People are always saying I look small for how many weeks I am and it does get to you a bit doesn't it? But I think a lot of people actually have no idea what size women 'normally' are at particular stages of pregnancy. It seems until I resemble a whale I'll be judged to be little! I was 1cm behind at my last MW appt and got another on Wednesday so just hoping I don't fall behind any more. I have a feeling I'll be about on track judging by how much I think my bump has grown. Hope your scan goes well. Do you get the extra one because you're high risk?

Glad baby seems to be head down Hope he stays put for you! I'm thinking mine has moved to transverse as I keep getting pains as if she's stretching out and poking both of my overies at the same time!! And I felt hiccups on my lower left side yesterday. Really really hope I'm wrong and she's head down though.

I've not properly discussed a birth plan yet, I think it's fairly regimented when they talk to you about certain things here. But I have discussed going to a Birthing Centre with my MW so she has a general idea of my wishes! Think I'll bring it up on Wednesday as I she said the birthing centre will want to see us before we go for the brith, so want to know when that would be. It might be more of a last minute thing though as I'll only be allowed to go there if everything is straightforward, which at the moment it isn't -TURN BABY TURN!!
