I'm here too. we should start a book on number of babies to arrive by end of thread.

Hmm, who mentioned chocolate oranges. Been having on/off cravings for them in last week! seem to be back on a craving again now, way too early to have to fight this craving after a lack of sleep last night!

I don't have a chocolate orange sad. Will a box of mint Matchmakers do?

Checking in, glad to hear James is doing well and curly is sounding so happy and well.
book mint matchmakers are the food of the gods. Waitrose started doing mini ones recently in a grab pouch. Made my year!

GummiBear74 Wed 18-Dec-13 10:13:50

Chocolate oranges or matchmakers? Or perhaps both...

Going to Tesco later, so BOGOF sounds good to me (that's one for me and one for baby). I don't even really like orange chocolate, just have to have it at this time of year because my parents Santa never remembered & I always got one in my stocking!

puggle01 Wed 18-Dec-13 10:15:50

Place marking. Do they have dark chocolate oranges? (truly food of the gods)

Felix90 Wed 18-Dec-13 10:16:54

Just got back from the hospital. I am 1cm dilated and midwife said my cervix is soft and did the sweep. It was VERY uncomfortable but was quick and not as bad as I thought. I was totally expecting her to say she couldn't do it as I'm only 37 weeks today.

So midwife wanders off in to the office afterwards to call the delivery suite to book in my induction. Expected her to come back with dates after Christmas as discussed and she says 'so they can do tomorrow or Friday' !!!!!!!!!!!! So as a result I am being induced on Friday 20th and baby will be here before Christmas. I don't know if I should laugh or cry or throw up or what! Ahhhhhh!

Felix90 Wed 18-Dec-13 10:17:44

Oh god I really want a dark chocolate orange now. I like those tubs of segsations where you get a variety of different ones. Mmmmmmmmmmm grin

BookTart Wed 18-Dec-13 10:35:21

Felix - that's so exciting! Quick, rush out and buy lots of novelty Christmas babygros grin

Wow felix exciting news smile

enormouse Wed 18-Dec-13 11:01:24

Exciting stuff felix, I agree go forth and buy christmassy things. I've seen lovely Christmas baby socks.
Like these
pudding socks. If only ds could still fit them.

Speaking of chocolate oranges, has anyone seen the white one with popping candy? Dp wants it, and apparently Christmas isn't Christmas without one.

GummiBear74 Wed 18-Dec-13 11:30:45

I think tesco have the white one with popping candy - I saw it on the website this morning when I was trying to decide how much chocolate I need to add to our Christmas delivery.

Was intrigued, but then I spotted the Reese's peanut butter snowman and forgot about it entirely in my excitement grin
