mamapo, I'm on my 3rd cold in a row now! (latest one is DH's fault, bringing new germs home from work). Once you're finished working though you'll probably find it clears up much more quickly smile as you'll have more time to rest.

I seem to have a baby surgically attached to my boob. Just thought I'd share!

2blessed Fri 23-Nov-12 12:09:15

Ah honey, sounds glorious. How is Dash doing? Apart from having a good ole feed!

AlisonDB Fri 23-Nov-12 12:19:14

Whoop whoop we're half way through Friday!

Spotty hope you are ok, and being taken care of!

DS has a half day on a Friday so we had Pizza & garlic bread for lunch, we're now settled on the sofa, watching Cars2 and stuffing our faces with biscuits! (While the little ones are asleep)

Bless him honey it's nice to hear how well he is!

Well today I have: cleaned the windows downstairs, sorted the dry washing, ironed the school and work shirts, swept the whole of downstairs and got down on my hands and knees to clean the glue splodges off the living room floor! Lots of stomach cramping now but I think it's just the housework! Lol

How's it going spotty ? Have you got stuff to keep you entertained?

SpottyTeacakes Fri 23-Nov-12 12:26:18

No nothing sad apart from my phone hmm just waiting for lunch then have to have another trace. Also need a shower think I might try hand expressing something after that. Consultant will be round this afternoon (my lovely one).

Still haven't slept. Anaesthetist has given me the ok for an epidural if I want one, had anyone had one? Dp won't be here until seven I don't think angry not much point in him even coming.

StaceymReadyForNumber3 Fri 23-Nov-12 12:34:36

Oh spotty that's shit. Hopefully with a shower and some expressing you can keep yourself busy.

Talking of expressing, I can get a good few drops by hand, is there any reason I can't use a pump before baby arrives? I'd like to have some in case sugar levels drop but I don't have anything to store little dribbles in. I was thinking if I could express properly that would be better.

SpottyTeacakes Fri 23-Nov-12 12:40:19

The only reason they don't advise it is because it's such a small amount it can get lost in a pump but if you have enough that's great smile I did with dd b

Walnut8 Fri 23-Nov-12 12:41:16

dont want to get too excited but crazy BH here again tonight.

Spotty I had an epidural. Think I will try to make it as far as I can this time without one and then have it again.

Walnut8 Fri 23-Nov-12 12:43:07

PILs (our emergency babysitters for DD) have gone away this weekend so chances are it's happening

SpottyTeacakes Fri 23-Nov-12 12:44:50

Oooo exciting Walnut grin

StaceymReadyForNumber3 Fri 23-Nov-12 12:55:08

Haha walnut probably, sods law and all that!

Good luck.

Thanks spotty I'll sterilise the pump and see what I can do.
