    I was all prepared to relax for the next couple of weeks too and then I got a jury summons in the mail on Friday! I hope I can get out of it, but apparently pregnancy is no excuse, even though I will be 36 weeks when I have to go! The funny thing is I would love to be on a jury (was called once a few years ago, but got dismissed the first day) just not right now!!!

    If you are bored, maybe make a few things for the nursery. I am making some stuffed animals and probably some cute curtains in the next few weeks. Also, I was advised to sleep as much as possible and read any books you've been meaning to because after baby is here you won't have time! :)

    lol i have been off since 4 march and am climbing the walls!

    i find it helps to plan one small thing each day, meet a friend, go for a walk, get nails done.

    It's my first day too so far:

    Hubby brought breakfast in bed at 08:30 and I stayed there till 11:00 watching rubbish on TV.

    Had 1 rasberry leaf tea, put a load of washing on and I'm just about to go and do the washing up lol.

    I'm not dressed yet but I think after the washing up I'll make some dinner and get on the sofa under duvet lol

    I am ready for my mat leave now and I still have 3 weeks to go. I am finding work exhausting at the moment, even the non-pregnant people are struggling with the enormous work load. 15 days on the ward left...I am counting down every one!

    Ki Kaz, what did you do for work?

    I'm tempted to bring my mat leave forward. I can't cope much longer...

    Just noticed you are from Devon too, where abouts are you?
