Will this become the live birth thread? Will Lodger 1 leave? Will waves be smiling throughout this thread?

Doula is on call, bags are packed, acrobat was a teeny 14 weeks foetus when I started posting - he is about to become DC3, I'll stop being sick and a whole new chapter will begin.

The answer to the last 2 questions is a great big YES! And the first …Well let's see what young acrobat decides!

You've done so Well Waves and very soon you get to meet your gorgeous new baby, with no twunt or TB or L1 to spoil it. And you'll stop being sick which can only be a good thing!

Enjoy the sunshine and your music and I hop DD feels better today.

<delurks to make terrible puns>

Tidal waves
It's a sea change
On the crest of a wave
The tide is turning
It's a new wave

<that's hooking as in crochet, just so as there's no misunderstanding wink>

I've been reading your posts for a while delurking to say good luck and yay for acrobat

MysteriousHamster Sat 13-Jul-13 08:23:51

Good luck waves, not long to go now!

AgathaF Sat 13-Jul-13 08:26:55

Ooh a shiny new thread. Hope it's a lovely one with a lovely new baby born in an appropriate time slot grin.

Have been lurking since very early on and have to say you have found some amazing strength in the face of such a horrid situation (twunt should be ashamed of himself but as hes a twunt I doubt he will ever think he is to blame for anything wrong in his life) and I hope it will stay with you forever.
You have a pair of wonderfully balanced dc who are a credit to your parenting skills so little acrobat will be in the best possible hands in your household, where ever you may end up.
Good luck flowers

The big question - has trainee twunt gone yet? angry

I've had an email from trainee twunt saying he has left, i will be home at around 2.30 and will report back definitively then. I got through my set whilst having contractions. Now sitting in a field, looking at the sea whilst the DCs get a bite to eat. DD is loving it here, it is a bike and music festival and she has been taking photos of the bikes on display.

Little acrobat is certainly having an interesting last few days/weeks in the womb. My doula reckons things are definitely happening but will be stop start because of the emotional baggage I have been carrying through the pregnancy. She has written up my birth plan, so I know that she will be a good advocate for me when we get to hospital.

This afternoon i plan to relax. Should be easier to do so if trainee twunt has actually gone smile

SpecialAgentTattooedQueen Sat 13-Jul-13 12:15:43

Wait trainee twunt texted to say he has no intent of even leaving when you demanded?! I want to post a red angry face, but won't if I've 'jumped the twunt'

Just in case I'm right... angry

OOOH so does your Doula think Acrobat will arrive soon or not?

I think he'll arrivee with jazz hands in a bang! (No pun intended)
