Welcome to our new home! Right, time to get that baybee out lazy!
<outs out throw cushions and a birthing ball for lazy>
I am so very tired. Why am I not asleep?! Time for bed I think!
Well done! I'm just up after weird baby dreams to find lots of snow again...bugger!
Yup, tonnes here too and still throwing it down! I have the car booked in for 1.30 and was planning to walk to the hospital for training. I might rearrange it! I really don't want to go anywhere. Rather hoping boss will ring and say training is cancelled...
No snow here... Lovely blue sky.
I'm sitting in bed with a small boy who needs to poo. Yoga later! It's a varied life I lead.
It's stopped here now and is sunny. Phew!
You wouldn't want it any other way though, right, blonde?!
<<makes self comfy>>
faith can I have a snow update late on weds if it's still hanging about? Our Consultant appt on weds has been cancelled, and rearranged for 8.45am Thursday......I'm already weepy at the thought of that. I've not been getting up much before 9.30 since A arrived as I've been catching up on sleep. We'll have to leave home about 7.30 on Thurs am.....
I have managed to squeeze into a pair of pre-preg jeans....it prompted tears this morning. I hate shopping anyway....but now I have no choice because all I have that will fit is sumemr dresses and skirts....
Course, snow problem
terrible I know! The main thing will be the route you travel. I wouldn't come along side the river (hairy) but the slightly longer routes should be ok. That luffly yellow thing in the sky is currently working on the white stuff
In your position, I'd be looking for short term clothing solutions, mostly joggers! Easy pull on clothes to make life easier. Is there a sports direct near you? (I guess it's not your normal style but as a short term option until everything settles down...)
I'm still sitting on the sofa watching Homes under the hammer. I'm loathe to move!
we'll be main road from H'castle onwards....have a 4x4 and HOLB actually knows how to drive it (he used to off-road as a hobby) so as long as it's not too dreadful we can usually get about.
Do you know what......I'm still bleeding a little post-natally. I'm SO uncomfy from having to wear pads....can't wait for the loss to stop so I can get rid of this itchy irritated feeling.
<peeks head round door, closes it again as far too scared to come in>
Maybe we could create a holding room for early differs before they actually feel able to venture in here? S'alright jeffers, you know where we are when you're ready.
Well I guess you're allowed a 4x4 since you actually live in the country queenie. Especially if he actually knows how to drive it then I'll make no comments about Chelsea tractors
I'm wearing maternity trousers and leggings and I ain't ashamed! Got some lovely wide leg ones I live in. Don't think anyone can tell and they keep my tummy warm, bonus.
Mostly choosing clothes these days on whether they provide easy access to my breasts anyway.
blonde yep.....i dragged some stuff out of a drawer the other day and then thought 'there's no way I can breastfeed in that'.....so i need some bf tops that are a bit more stylish than my ratty old long sleeve t's.
faith we're only a few hundred yards from the main road, but the first winter we lived here we got properly snowed in. Couldn't even get HOLB's car off the drive......so as soon as we could we bought a 4x4. We did buy a pick up, as we need to buy wood/coal etc so it made sense for us.
Well it would appear that all my lovely pupils have guessed i'm pregnant...because I was off class last Monday morning. Apparently someone whose mum is expecting has knowingly told everyone that that is when women go to midwives...wouldn't mind but the reality is that I was at the garage with my stupid car! Oh well at the min I look a bit rotund so it was only a matter of time a
hey Jeff <waves>
You could probably fob them off for now bluesy?! I am very rotund now!
queenie Tis chilly here but no snow forecast so I reckon you'll be ok...hope the appointment goes smoothly.
I only have one more long day to work (tomorrow) hooray! I do believe I've been having Braxton hicks today . It's just too hard on my body!
Ah I suppose so but I am very bloated which isn't helping matters, since I lost the weight etc and now it's just my tummy seems more obvious! Ooh at last the end is in sight for work! I was off yesterday...really dizzy and tired and now I can't sleep. Got a parents night to do tonight and I am so tired at the thought.
<sniff sniff> Do I smell a lazy baybee?!
Like the name adjustment blonde
Wahoo another ESH baybee has been borned! Oh my life it's my turn next!
Ok so I'm officially freaking out been to see the paediatrician about the codiene. Now the reality is at present it's not too much risk to Pickle but it can cause breathing difficulties and they can have withdrawal symptoms. Therefore they'll put an alert on my notes for when I come in to have the baby and we'll have to stay in for 48 hours after the birth to monitor Pickle. I feel like I'm putting Pickle at risk by taking these meds now and am stuck between just wanting to stop the painkillers and knowing I can't manage without them....I am determined to cut down as much as possible. I think it'll be easier when I'm only working short shifts and when I go on mat leave. I just feel a bit pants about it all. It's frustrating that I waited so long for an op and got diffed just before they fixed. I know it'll ultimately be ok, I just feel like I want my baybee to have the best chance possible and I'm not giving it that by taking the drucks
Right faithy. Let me give you a bloody good talking to.
Bearing in mind that my whole working life has been working with people who are opiate dependent, including many women who are on heroin, methadone and other significantly stronger opiates than codeine.
Here are the facts...
1) You need to take the codeine at the moment.
2) The chances of your baby being born opiate dependent are pretty slim.
3) Pickle MAY have withdrawal symptoms but it probably won't.
4) Withdrawal symptoms are an art not a science (as in, people can be on shed loads of opiates and the baby has no withdrawals or vice versa)
5) Pediatricians are always cautious and generally they know bugger all about opiate withdrawals.
6) You need to take the codeine at the moment.
Yes, thank you dor I do think the needles have helped and I've been pushing my limits by having more caffiene and fizzy drinks lately which I know that makes the pain worse - my pain was massively improved in my first trimester (when I couldn't stomach tea and hasn't rediscovered my luff for coke!) so I have resolved that after the weekend (once I've finished the remainder in the house) I will cut them out again and see how I go. I bought some elderflower cordial to treat myself instead
He did say the amount I'm on is low risk and they have these plans in place for the minority that need it rather than it being expected. Just made me a bit wibbly! I'm tired too.
I'm meant to be going back to the homeland
Solihull tomorrow to see my mates. But the weather forecast is dire for Sunday. Normally I'd stuff it and go - I did last year! - but at nearly 30 weeks I'm much more cautious. I want to see my friends but I can't really be arsed to travel and am very worried about getting stuck over there! Planning to decide in the morning.
I meant to ask you how much codeine you are on.
I'm prescribed up to 30mg, 4 times a day. I usually take 3 x doses of 30mg and 1x 15mg, or 2x 30mg and 2x 15mg.
I am soooooo itchy, have been for a couple of days. Mostly round my buzzwams and belly, bit on my Lower back and thighs. I have not had any omega 3 for a week -ran out and only got a new supplement today. Do you think that's why I'm itchy? My skin is just dry? I switched from bio-oil to diprobase tonight.
Did those who have had their baybees have Braxton hicks? I think I've had them the last two days but would like RL experience descriptions as the net is confusing me...
Worth checking with your midwife or GP about the itching - I know that it can possibly the sign of more serious things during pregnancy (probably not though so don't start panicking!)
As for the codeine - I wouldn't panic too much about it. You're not on stupid amounts.
