New thread as the other one is nearly full shock!

Our next baby should be pmgkt's, but I won't if any little cheeky monkey will sneak in before Thursday?

MarasmeAbsolu Sun 30-Dec-12 12:10:09

Congrats Sanam and Birdies!!!
I am looking forward to plenty of links to birth stories smile smile

I have been having the sudden kicks down below too - painful. And also plenty of very tight tight tightenings. Not painful in a crampy way, just putting a lot of pressure down below. But baby is going absolutely mad at night. Haven't slept very well for a few nights, I cannot go to sleep before 2 or 3 am (and wake up at 11am [shock!!]grin.

Otherwise Pixel, yes, still at work. I have one of these jobs which never really stops and is a bit all consuming in a great but also depressing way. I do enjoy it a lot, but on my terms, which is not quite the case at the mo!!

We are going to friends tonight to stay overnight, since they'll have DD tomorrow (I am really scared she will have a total breakdown when she realise that we have "left her" - that's definetly one of the big worry of not having family around). So that was my last night in my bed, with just "us" in the room. Scary.

Pascha - any movement on your EDD yet?
Apple will you get all your missing bits and bobs today?
Complicated good luck smile
I will now attempt the bag!

Good luck to all in the waiting room and hoping that the happy fews who have already boarded the plane are enjoying their cuddles!!

Lora1982 Sun 30-Dec-12 12:36:13

Well done everyone for avoiding christmas day and so far new years eve arrivals :-D

Woody is there a way of keeping edd and actual arrival dtes on the list? That might proove interesting

marasme oh god I hope I get the last bits today or tomorrow at latest. Have done nothing so far today and need to get moving but I feel sick with anxiety. Suffer anxiety anyway and the thought that I might actually have this baby sooner rather than later has set it all off! sad

GOod luck packing bag am sure your dd will be fine and excited.

MarasmeAbsolu Sun 30-Dec-12 12:49:03

Lora I like your idea of running stats on the list smile
As for avoiding NYE - my friend's b'day is on the 1st of Jan, and she hates it sad obviously close to Xmas, but also a day when all are hungover and not up for a celebration smile
oh well!

Apple same here sad bricking it. And listening to Lana Del Rey is a BAAAADDD idea - gave me a panic attack. Let's think positive - what is the worst that can happen if things aren't ready!? your DH will have to do it all!

Tugstonia Sun 30-Dec-12 13:16:24

wow another baby! Congratulations birdies smile Hope you and your baby girl are doing well and can go home soon. Stupid growth scans causing you all that stress angry

CreepyCrawly Sun 30-Dec-12 14:54:16

Will there be any babies left for January?! Congratulations sanam & birdies!

I'm feeling a million dollars today, having been told by 3 seperate people that I look tired and worn out. Why is pregnancy a green light for people to insult you?! I had a bloody good sleep last night too!

Hope everyone is well!

sanam2010 Sun 30-Dec-12 15:08:34

Congratulations, birdies! Hope you're feeling better after the c-section!

So funny about your growth scan, according to ours my daughter was below average in everything (between 30-40 percentile) and she was 52cm, 3.7kg and head circumference of 35cm! Not massive but definitely not below average!

I came back home from hospital this morning, really happy to be back home and now waiting for my chance to have a proper shower finally - the showers in the hospital were a bit disgusting and the water wasn't warm!!

lollipoppi Sun 30-Dec-12 15:10:10

Hello!
Please can I join in smile I'm due 20th jan, with Dc2, we don't know what we're having (other than a baby of course)
Congratulations to all of you and good luck to those still cooking x

Complicated24 Sun 30-Dec-12 16:01:14

Huge congrats Sanam and Birdies. Fantastic news. Birdies I had a feeling things were happening for you as missed your daily updates. All that worry about percentiles for nothing. Wonder how big our baby will be as we were told it was 5th percentile.

Marasme good luck for tomorrow and hope your little girl settles in well at your friends. I'm taking iPad to hospital so will look out for regular updates.

Today I have given house a good clean - don't think I was nesting just panicking that it needed a good clean! Then went out for a walk with DH. A combination of sciatica and Brixton hicks meant it was a very slow walk and am now vegged out on sofa totally fit for nothing! Induction tomorrow. Can't quite believe it.

Hello welcome lolli

Panic is over well mostly picked up breast pump with dcs this afternoon then as soon as dp got up went and got car seat! So baby can come won't budge now till end of jan

still feeling pretty anxious as it's not an ideal time dp still working and dcs still have week of hol left so am unable to really wind down which isn't helping matters!

Hormonalhell Sun 30-Dec-12 16:20:42

allchik yes I seem to notice the cramps and tightenings more on an evening too...they just never get any more painful although they do feel very uncomfy.

Do you all go to bed every night wondering if tomorrow will bring your baby? I know I do...just waiting is the worst hmm

octanegirl Sun 30-Dec-12 17:15:51

Yes hormonal it's very odd waiting for a life changing event with no inkling of when it will happen! I thought it might happen on a full moon but no.....

Birdies congrats! I'm also looking forward to the birth stories smile

Woody I think Lora's idea of keeping the EDDs will be very interesting. Loads have come early.....

Lostbobbles Sun 30-Dec-12 17:17:42

Big congrats Sanam and Birdies. (Birdies wish you a quick and speedy recovery)

Welcome willo and lolli

Good luck Marasme, hope your DC is ok with your friends, sure she will have a blast.

Well done Apples, good days purchasing :-)

I had a bit of a crap day yest, got hit (well squashed) by an idiot (far less unsavoury words were used at time) who decided not to wait two seconds and let me walk from the side of my car round to the curb but instead to just keep driving hitting me with his wing mirror and squishing me against my car. Luckily i was not hurt and managed to protect the bump and rush through and get feet and self out of the way. The prat didn't bother to stop either so as another car was blocking his way, i banged on his rear windscreen and then (don't know what came over me) went to his door, told him he'd hit me and he just he started swearing at me!! so i hit him with my umbrella. He drove off and i then proceeded to burst into tears. Got his car reg but because i wasn't badly hurt there is no point pursuing with the police.

So anyway little drama over, I have been having the same sharp pains and lots of BH in the eve as well and awful pelvic pain when rolling over or getting out of bed. (which is about 10 times a night, for the very disappointing 2 drip wee's) tut tut baby!

woody2313 Sun 30-Dec-12 17:39:33

Welcome Lolli! And congratulations to Birdies! Hope you are ok now Bobbles - can't believe that driver shock

woody2313 Sun 30-Dec-12 17:46:39

bealos definitely the same Lucy as now my Facebook homepage is full of pics of you and your ds! How odd! Looks like you had a lovely time though !

JBtulip Sun 30-Dec-12 19:09:41

Hi, can I join too please? I was on at the beginning I think but then got completely distracted with work, sorting everything out and life in general! EDD is 3/1 and we don't know what we are having.

Congrats to everyone who has already had their babies, I can't wait am having lots of BH in afternoon and evening over the last couple of days but they seem to stop when I go to bed.

bealos Sun 30-Dec-12 19:27:36

haha katolia - where are you based? I'm in Hackney.

Birdiesinthesnow Sun 30-Dec-12 20:55:51

Thanks everyone. We've named our little girl Xanthe.

complicated I know! I bet yours is 50th centile!

Welcome lolli and jb

bobbles that's awful. Hope you're ok.

woody good work on the list!

Hope everyone else is ok.

happyhow Sun 30-Dec-12 21:23:48

Love the name Birdies (it's on our short list...!)

Welcome Willo and Lolli

I'm currently on the gym ball again - hoping the midwife will tell me tomorrow that Baby is more engaged. With only a week til due date, I hope so! Also got another scan and appointment at the hospital tomorrow as have too much amniotic fluid so they're checking to see it hasn't gotten any worse in the last two weeks.

Hubby refused sex this morning... I was close to getting him to cave in but he has amazing willpower. Don't think I'll be using that technique to get Baby moving south... sad

Also, went see Life of Pi this afternoon - it's really good!

Lora1982 Sun 30-Dec-12 22:51:38

My guys refusing to help me with sex aswell. Selfish sods arent they... It was all fine and dandy 9 months ago :-D his 'excuse' is he doesnt want any snotty mucus plug on him or for the baby to get his head poked. I explained that he would need a massive willie that could bend round corners.

My wisdom tooth still really hurts....all the way up the side of my face ive got a little pharmacy on the coffee table infront of me to help ease it.

Midwife appointment on the 3rd so il be 40 weeks and desperate to meet this guy. Mum let us play with the pram today and i still love it thank god. But we still arent allowed it until babies here.

Happy new yrs eve eve everyone :-D

Hormonalhell Sun 30-Dec-12 22:52:06

Awww that's a lovely name birdies

That's awful lostbobbles shock but grin at u hitting him with your brolly!!

Have fallen off thread again, which given the perpetual disorganisation I find myself in concerning this baby shouldn't be a surprise.

I am so thrilled to read so many babies are here! birdies I adore the name Xanthe, it is one of our contenders.

I am 38 weeks today. Neither birth pool or home birth kit have turned up yet but I figure I have at least a week as DS was 39 weeks. I don't really care about nye this year as we are using this time to Get Shit Sorted in our house. So far this has involved buying most of ikea yesterday and then turning the house upside down rearranging. I think it's more chaotic then it was before hmm

So anyone out tonight? Or in bed by 10 like I suspect I will be grin

djvesi Mon 31-Dec-12 10:19:50

Happy New Year for this evening everyone! We'll be off on a wild adventure to our next door neighbors' house, who live all of 4 metres away from our front door :-) Across some treacherous icy paths nonetheless. smile

I'm 37+4 now and whereas reading this thread used to be quite reassuring, now I'm seeing all these beautiful babies arriving, I'm starting to get quite nervous and can't quite fathom that we'll be joining you soon!

Congrats to all the new mums! Love reading your birth stories, especially the pain free fast and easy variety wink
