Hello! I saw this in the active threads section and thought what a good thread title! Then I realised it was for us grin Thanks!!!

hermionejgranger Thu 15-Dec-11 21:46:36

Thanks bill for being so organised and brainy with thread titles! I've added flapjack77 to the FB group.

it's all starting to get scary close now isn't it?!

Hello - I need to get better at using FB but as my laptop has died, today is not the time.
Hope babyc is feeling better - I had a trip to hospital today as have been throwing up again. Panicked a bit when dp said "so she needs to go to the Delivery Suite?" but turns out that that's where the docs are so the antenatal assessment centre is next door!

Apparently have gastroenteritis and low blood pressure but Thumpy is just fine.
And I now have 3 hosp appts next week and two the week after, with Christmas in between!

On the plus side, plasterers today did a great job, painters turn up Sat am, carpet arrives on 21st, gets fitted 22nd, and then in-laws turn up on 23rd/24th to sleep in a finished bedroom!

BillComptonstrousers Thu 15-Dec-11 21:57:14

Hello new thread! babyc, all sounds scary, hope Baby stays firmly put! notcitrus glad you're okay. And welcome McQueasy!

Back pain seems to be easing off ever since I posted about it, so will wait and see if it comes back... 28 week blood tests have come back and I'm anaemic apparently, so picking up my tablets today. Is anyone else on them? Is it true they make you constipated?

Yesterday I did something I vowed never to do. I played the "but i'm PREGNANT!!!" card. Twice. The first time was when I got to work late, someone had nicked my parking space and the security guard wasn't going to let me park in the visitors spaces... it worked! Then last night I was shopping, queuing up in BHS, only one person in front of me, two tills open. One person wanted the price checking on something which took about half an hour. The other person had LOADS of stuff, then, when it had all gone through, went "mum, d'you want to put yours through, save you waiting?" to the woman stood behind me! Aargh!! I opened my coat to flash the bump, and did a lot of huffing and puffing and shuffling. They ignored me. Can't win them all I s'pose....!

mamasmissionimpossible Fri 16-Dec-11 08:40:55

EsmeWeatherwax Fri 16-Dec-11 10:05:28

Morning folks, can't believe we've made it to another thread!

We've had loads of snow here overnight, so currently living in a Christmas card! Very pretty. So not looking forward to going to pick up dd1 from nursery though.

IHeartIona Fri 16-Dec-11 10:46:00

I've missed this thread too! am due Feb 3rd with dc2 - may I join you? smile

deardear Fri 16-Dec-11 12:39:38

welcome to the newbies smile

Bill your thread title is fantastic again lol. How do you do it especially with a baby brain?

Hope babyc gets on ok at hospital.

Its snowed here this morning a bit but not stuck. Boss did a jig round the office which i thought was a bit OTT but hey ho.

Had a crap nights sleep again and have decided the sofa is definately my best friend atm. DH is off work on lay off days so he took Soph to school then met me at the stables and we did the ponies together. Kat is off today as she was sick as she was going to school so told her to light a fire - really didnt want to move to come to work! Wont get to see that until nearly 7pm tonight as going for a shift at the pub when i finish here at 2pm. Bunch of teachers coming in. hopefully they will be quiet so i can have a snooze and read the paper smile

this weekend will mainly be about sleeping.

Are we taking bets on who will be the first to pop? I know one of us is booked for an elc early but who will be first spontaneous?

PDog Fri 16-Dec-11 13:08:52

Lovely new thread Bill and great title. Sums me exactly as I am currently washing my lunch down with a bottle of Gaviscon. Heartburn is so bad, can't eat one bite without it flaring up. If you believe the old wives tales it is suppose mean baby will have lots of hair. DD was born with a fair bit and I did have quite bad heartburn with her - just not this early.

Hello to the newbies <waves>. I have no idea how to add people to the facebook group mamasmissionimpossible but I sure someone will be along to help you soon.

I have nothing much to report other than I am knackered, it is snowing and I still have CHristmas shopping to do. I did manage to get some newborn stuff unpacked and washed this week though. Oh I am very envy of those of you finishing work.

I reckon either Minnie or Woowa will be the first to go deardear. We had a guess the date, gender and weight thing on the facebook group - wonder who will get the prize for guessing everything right?

30 + something

CoffeeOne Fri 16-Dec-11 13:12:05

Kayano Fri 16-Dec-11 16:12:09


And yes I did get my taxi home. I did
However spend my last call at work distressed and sobbed afterwards because the customer did not understand, I didn't understand (prev person employed at THEIR end had messed up) and had to offer a callback due to potential vat implications , but then I felt like I was fobbing them off because I obv won't be doing the call back

(not that I understood any better at the end anyway) seriously, their old employee needed a slap blush

It was awful.

I am lucky to have a humongous tube of Jaffa cakes at home waiting for me lol

QueenFee Fri 16-Dec-11 17:00:49
