Also tarlia I haven't been diagnosed with SPd but I had it quite severely with dd last time so quite possibly its making a late come back? Hopefully it doesn't get any worse I don't think I could face it!

orange not quite as big as this baby's head he is way over the 97th centile which as far as I'm aware is how high the graphs go lol. I have another scan on 4th of September to check on its progress

I just ordered a pink lining changing bag gunna have to return the cath kidston one I brought she's ago. Dh isn't all too happy but he doesn't have to carry it round does he lol

PS didn't mean to worry you blush

Good luck pinkbuttons. So lovely to see hair, wow! Beautiful picture. With a head in 95th percentile does it have to be induction/c section? Natalie was that the problem you were having? Fingers crossed you get the birth you want pink!

Tarlia Fri 16-Aug-13 07:30:33

Grain? Groin rather! And sorry for the total death of punctuation haha.

Tarlia Fri 16-Aug-13 07:29:20

👍Yay jelly that's fab news. Hope your last day goes super quick and is uneventful.

pink go team piles and grain grab. Pregnancy is oh do glam!

I really like their Bebe bags, Nat but I've been resisting the urge as I have a really lovely Oioi bag I hardly used last time and with the package we got our pram comes with a matching bag too - which DP will use as his changing bag at weekends as last time it drove me mad that he would use things up and not replace them or even warn me.

pinkbuttons Fri 16-Aug-13 07:19:22

Im with you on the piles and lightening pains tarlia and blondies although had one last night in which I didnt manage to avoid the attractive crotch grab, really felt lije she was hoing to kick herself out even though shes head down.

clapham and roxvox that is appaling behaviour !!!
I am starting to think about maternity leave and my problem is the opposite:
I work for a very small company ( 10 employees) as a part time manager. My boss is happy to let me do everything my way but 3 meetings I have tried to set up regarding ml haven't happened in the end and the employeesare stressed about dealing with her. And dh is starting to say again about me returning to be a full time housewife because of all the hassle. I am on holiday until next Monday and at least 2 a day I have phone calls from the employees asking me to sort things out sad

Tarlia Thu 15-Aug-13 23:20:40

Oooooh, just noticed this, probably behind but I think we could all do with some...

cake cake cake for all x

Tarlia Thu 15-Aug-13 23:13:03

blondies made me chuckle, you are my pregnancy twin with the urge to groin grab and I have a thrombosed pile too. I should speak to the Dr at my check tomorrow, but I'm so embarrassed! I've never had piles other than post labour last time where I had to push for my life. I've not got constipation or anything else to blame either.

Nat do you have SPD this time? Def could be related, as mine is all in that area this time.

I've been having "lightening" pains in my groin tonight, just about managed to not grab my self a la Michael Jackson in front of customers at work grin

I've also got piles grin damn iron tablets for anemia!

Natalie - when we were kids the cats were always getting fleas. My mum got these flee collars which solved the problems. She also got a very glaring aerosol for the carpets from the vet to keep the house clear. Not sure where the cats picked them up. Min you thy also likes boing me and I used to catch them on my ankles. Ick

Empress77 Thu 15-Aug-13 22:41:59

Just zipping in as I can do flea advice- did you treat the household at the same time as the cat -get a spray from the vets and mega blitz the place, RIP or whatever brand they do -after a mega hoover & hotwash of the cats beds, anything that you can wash like cushions. do the car too. And treat the cats too - they need to be done every month, especially in the summer - if using Frontline definitely use Frontline Combo only, or Advocate or Stronghold is good too. 1 flea makes like 1000 eggs so it is a battle and you need to keep up the monthlyness to get rid of them properly as each egg will then hatch and wont die till takes a mouthful of cat blood - by which time its layed a good hundred eggs....and do on.
Evil critters fleas.

Pregnancy = extreme suffering even if its not an illness! i can barely cope at all!!

I don't know nat could be. its when I try and relax. Took me ages to get to sleep last night and started annoying dh too!

My friend suggested a soak in the bath before bed.
