HavingALittleFaithBaby Tue 19-Mar-13 07:20:39

Oh but on a positive note, I'm 35 weeks today! How time flies smile

bluer Tue 19-Mar-13 07:37:02

Eek! Its getting close now faith! ! Must be exciting. I'm at the half way point nearly...getting nervous about the scan in a few Weeks but i'm also desperate to know boy or girl! How can people not find out? ? ! It's driving me potty!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Tue 19-Mar-13 07:50:15

Yes not long! I'm pleased I've got this far to be honest! I got a bit worried about early labour at one least I'm nearly term now. I think I'll be more excited when I've finished work. I can't wait for Friday afternoon! smile

Do you have a feeling of what you're having blue? I think you're having a boy.

MsJupiterJones Tue 19-Mar-13 15:41:27

I think it's 6 months Dor but I know plenty of people who have swapped earlier. Most buggies have an 'almost-flat' option if you wanted to try it. L gets his best naps in the pram so I am in no hurry to change!

Oh I am getting so excited for you Faith! I was just reading Baby Names threads and wondering what yours will be. PLEASE tell me she will have Faith as a middle name?! (Unless she comes out with an unexpected appendage.)

JethroTull Tue 19-Mar-13 19:27:41

Did all of you that have laid know your babies names before they were born or did you have some to choose from & then match the name to the baby?

JethroTull Tue 19-Mar-13 19:28:27

Roll on Friday ^Faithy*!

bluer Tue 19-Mar-13 20:48:49

I think it's a boy too for some reason...i've not really considered agirl at all...I just came imagine it for some strange reason. Well hopefully be finding out soon

HavingALittleFaithBaby Tue 19-Mar-13 21:25:07

I do wonder if its the association between your MN NN with 'blue' in it though?!

jeff I think might be a girl....

Wahoo 3 shifts to go! Work is mental. Lots of patients who are hard work and demanding and I just can't run round after them!

Oh, want a laugh. Tonight MSB said I can get his tea ready for when he gets home every night while I'm on mat leave because I'll be at home doing nothing hmm. I responded by telling him he had no idea what it's like to be a parent! smile What a wally!

FriendofDorothy Tue 19-Mar-13 21:58:14

We had a few names to choose form, but I think I knew all along what it was going to be.

bluer Tue 19-Mar-13 21:58:39 df made a similar comment the other day. I really feel a bit sorry for him...he has absolutely zero baby experience and I think he may be going into this completely unaware! I think he's in for a shock when it finally clicks that life will change. He's going on about garden plans etc that will require a lot of time and energy for example!
Maybe I'll have to change to pinkr grin

MsJupiterJones Wed 20-Mar-13 06:26:47

I have only just started cooking again and L will be 5 months next week. Some most days I don't even get around to having lunch before TBI gets home from work never mind starting on dinner!

Re. Names, we chose two boys' names and two girls' names before we knew which he was. Then chose from the two boys' names when we met him. But there was always a front runner. His middle name was decided years ago as it is a family name from my side.

However, in a morphine-induced haze the night after he was born, I came up with a new name which I thought was the best name ever. TBI vetoed it but it grew on him so it's now a second middle name (the clue is in my username...)

HavingALittleFaithBaby Wed 20-Mar-13 21:43:29

morphine induced haze baybee naming! grin love it! We have a name we are pretty set on if it does turn out to be pink. I have no idea what we'll call a boy if it pops out with a winky....we had a boy's name all set, last week he said he doesn't like it any more! shock I'm hoping it'll just seem natural when the time comes.

I have 15 hours (2 shifts) left to work. Last lot of uniforms are ironed! Felt very strange to realise next time I iron I'll be back in non extending uniforms!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 22-Mar-13 06:10:26

Well that's the last 5.45 alarm for a while well until my baybee wakes me demanding milk
<hopes stays Pickle stays put for a couple of weeks>

LazyMachine Fri 22-Mar-13 06:55:07

We named LazyBoy at around 28-30 weeks. I'm a complete control freak little prone to organisation and was much happier when we'd sorted out his name!

LazyMachine Fri 22-Mar-13 07:01:59

Happy Last Day of Non-Baybee Work, Faife!

JethroTull Fri 22-Mar-13 07:16:23

Yay! Last day at work Faith - hope it's not too busy.

JethroTull Fri 22-Mar-13 07:19:32

We haven't talked about names, or where the baby might sleep or anything really. I am too scared that by talking, out loud, about stuff, it will jinx it. 12 week scan is on Monday & I'm hoping that might make me less terrified!!

bluer Fri 22-Mar-13 07:41:50

Happy last day at work faith! !
Jeff we were exactly like that, I think it's normal especially when you've waited and hoped etc. part of me is scared about the 20 week scan in case anything is wrong. We're holding off on the name chat till then but we did buy a pram!
Hope your little one isn't as camera shy as ours was...although seeing them face in and waving was amazing!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 22-Mar-13 15:58:16

It was...sh1t, Er literally! Lots of poo! Very busy confused but I'm done! Wahoo! Now if Pickle can just stay put for a bit I can get around to relaxing! smile

MsJupiterJones Fri 22-Mar-13 17:50:57

Congrats Faith!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 22-Mar-13 18:23:01

Thanks! grin

Oh jeff, brimming with positive thoughts for you. Remember the odds are in your favour after the first scan. Only 3 days to go. <proffers cod of comfort>

FriendofDorothy Fri 22-Mar-13 20:03:01

Ah I have just zoomed my way round the NCT nearly new sale. Bought some lovely clothes smile

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 22-Mar-13 21:27:01

Sounds good dor!

I am starting a cold. Bloody brilliant timing although I guess I could still be at work?! Curled up in bed with a hot chocolate. I did splurge and have a rose wine spritzer. It was delicious. It contained so little wine the bottle doesn't actually look like its been opened and poured from hmm

MsJupiterJones Fri 22-Mar-13 21:49:55

Oh no that's what happened to me! Look after yourself. thanks

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 22-Mar-13 22:01:52

I have always had this affliction, push through to the end then crash and get ill. I frequently get colds on holiday! Ah well, it'll pass! I bought breath right strips so hopefully I won't snore too much (poor MSB!).
