Hey ladies! Glad to hear you're all well (if a little sweaty ). As always I have my fingers crossed for those elusive bfps for those of you who haven't got them yet.

We are all good, Felix is so busy and learning something new every day. He chats and babbles, crawls all the time, is working out toys he's not been able to use before and is currently obsessed with lift the flap and touchy feely books. We're off to our first birthday party tomorrow, the first of a little bunch of 5 babies all close in age, Felix being the youngest.

The sleep! Argh, the sleep. Four months was the worst - the four month sleep regression lasted just over a month with us and it was horrific. He was up every couple of hours and didn't nap at all. Bleugh. His sleep is better now but has never gone back to how it was before the regression . He was starting to regularly sleep 10-12 hours before and now is still up at least once, usually twice in a night. He can occupy himself a bit more in the day now though so it's not quite so draining.

I have horrible dreams too so the sleep I do get is often very fractured and restless it's so annoying isn't it, having crappy sleep even when the baby is asleep!

34 weeks now

And yeah I have enjoyed pregnancy so far and still am, but I think I'm slowly getting to the point where I'm done. My tiredness is back and kicking my ass. If I don't nap twice a day forget about it.

I have a plan in my head but not a paper. Basically going to try natural though I'm open to pain relief as I'm a baby when it comes to pain. Delayed cord clamping and cutting, and immediate skin to skin contact

Good attitude re: pain relief snuffles. If you go in with an open mind then you won't be disappointed. You're right about not knowing how you'll take to the pain. I thought I had a really low pain threshold but turns out I don't and managed with half an hour of gas and air!

Basically we were on our way to the baby shower and DH told me there was a surprise but that I had to stay in the truck. He wouldn't tell me anymore and I was on the verge of crying because I was freaked out that I didn't know what was going on. So we pull up and he comes around to my side of the truck and he opens my door and I notice that he's getting ready to cry which brings me even closer to freaking out. He then pulls the ring box out of his pocket and gets down on one knee and asks me if I'll marry him right there right now. Of course I say yes and then I get out of the truck and they have a little make shift aisle set up with flower petals on the ground and candles on the sides of the isle. Also has a little arch made out of tulle, burlap, flowers, and hanging mason jars. So we get up to the minister lady and start saying our vows and I feel like a jackass because I don't have DH's wedding band with me, and then all of a sudden the minister hands me his wedding band. So we finish our vows and everybody awwww'd and clapped and then we started the baby shower

I'm hoping to be able to do just natural, but I'm fully expecting to end up with an epidural.

Yey Mrs Snuffles! You must be on cloud 9 just now! Defo be open minded about labour. I notice (from watching an abundance of American maternity programmes) that it seems the majority of women get epidurals and also labour on their backs? Maybe it's only in the hospitals filmed. Anyways, huge congrats and welcome to the wives club! Next stop - baby!

Trying - how you doing? I see its ivf in November? That's so exciting - it says your in Scotland and I don't think I ever noticed! I went to the Leuchers Airshow today with Heidi - it was awesome!

Mini - hope preggo is treating you well!
