Here's the stats page

Well done Peace

Your manager is a witch! Sod her and take your time off. Err - why do you have to steam every day for the rest of your life? I thought it was a bad cold?! Sounds odd advice!

I suffer a bit of insomnia at the moment too. Find if I exercise it really helps - even if I'm nackered, it means I sleep better next day

Like the thread title! grin

It was weird, he said the reason I'm coughing is that my nose is congested (but it feels like it's in my chest) so if I inhale steam it'll go away eventually, and he advised me to do it every day forever to ward off juju colds. He was an ENT specialist so I do believe him.

Just had BHs for five minutes, waah. DH's first reaction to anything tummy-related is "shall I take you to the hospital?!" aww <3

Found you! The countdown to Christmas babies has officially begunsmile

CatFaceCrayola Mon 06-Oct-14 22:50:21

Will there be any births in this thread??

Peaceloveandbiscuits Mon 06-Oct-14 22:52:37

Mine is a Quorn Roast, though grin

Peaceloveandbiscuits Mon 06-Oct-14 22:58:46

Oh good question! There's some late November EDDs on the stats page. If not this thread, the next one for certain I reckon!

I feel calmer now the shop is sorted and I know I've got a week of rest ahead of me. Thank you for the support today and last night.

Roonerspism Mon 06-Oct-14 23:33:12

Peace - I have sinus problems which does cause similar issues (and sinus issues are notorious for flaring in pregnancy)

My ENT has given me a steroid nose spray which I use mainly in the summer. I have also massively cut down dairy. Do you suffer headaches? My ENT has not advised steam. It does help when I'm choked with a cold, but not day to day...

Peaceloveandbiscuits Mon 06-Oct-14 23:38:21

Tbh I've always suffered really badly with colds and ENT stuff since I was a child. My nostrils are too narrow to breathe through so when I'm congested I'm wretched. But this cough just will not leave my body! I'll try the steam for a bit and see what happens. I also think resting will help.

CatFaceCrayola Tue 07-Oct-14 00:30:56

Glad you're feeling calmer Peace.

I've just had a strange funny turn in the bath. One second absolutely fine, the next second: dizzy, sick, shivering and shaking. Had to get DH to come to my rescue. Still feeling a little shakey but much improved. Odd

Peaceloveandbiscuits Tue 07-Oct-14 00:32:46

That sounds scary Catface! sad are you safely into bed now?

Lucy90 Tue 07-Oct-14 05:01:03

Found you all! Im wide awake at this ridiculous hour on my day off ad usual! Time for a cup of tea i think!

Roonerspism Tue 07-Oct-14 05:03:54

I'm awake too - head spinning.... Hormones. I still have 9 weeks of work to go! Our mat pay is crap so I have no option but to work right up...

Hope you are ok catface

CallingAllEngels Tue 07-Oct-14 06:27:07

peace your manager should be ashamed of herself angry

Now rest (that's an order!).

28+2 today

Lucy90 Tue 07-Oct-14 06:27:21

Managed to keep myself entertained by ordering new furniture for the nursery and a new bed for me and OH, he doesnt know yet! Hoping to have the nursery finished by the end of the week!
Catface that sounds a bit frightening, hope youre feeling better today!

PourquoiTuGachesTaVie Tue 07-Oct-14 07:13:27

Marking Place. 32+6 and no more work for me now as the dr signed me off until mat leave starts.

Problem is I still have a few personal things left in work that I need to bring home.

Had the worst heartburn last night. Had to figure out how to sleep practically sitting upright. Then my calves started cramping. Oh how I love being pregnant hmm

Taura Tue 07-Oct-14 07:42:45

Well we had a pretty rubbish weekend. Luckily it was other people, not us or the bump, but still...
My mother got taken to hospital on Saturday night with a suspected heart attack (and had to be transferred from her local hospital to one in my city - a couple of hundred miles, because they needed to use an Angiogram), and we found out on Sunday that BIL and his wife have separated (they have a 3yo adopted son too sad) so we're just crossing our fingers that bad things don't come in threes...
On the plus side, only 15 working days to go before pre-mat Holiday...
And 30+3 and baby is I think now starting to turn head down (kicks up high now)

stationaryace Tue 07-Oct-14 08:06:39

32+2 weeks today. Moving house just now and had our bad three things yesterday, one of which was a leak shock. GD clinic today and first extra scan so I'll finally get to know how big this little monster is - my midwife hasn't mentioned figures before so I have no idea. 15 more working days til my mat leaves starts which is good as apparently I'm not going to sleep much anymore.

CatFaceCrayola Tue 07-Oct-14 09:27:09

Pourquoi...time to relax smile

I still feel pretty sick but nothing compared to yesterday. And I actually slept quite successfully (in comparison to how I've been sleeping recently)

And DH has an unexpected day off so can look aftet me today smile

Peaceloveandbiscuits Tue 07-Oct-14 10:06:33

Pancakes and "maple flavoured syrup". Yas. I'm going back to bed now.

Peaceloveandbiscuits Tue 07-Oct-14 10:32:45

Oh I've broken a tooth. Well, actually it's crumbling around a filling. Fuck. I've taken half a co-codamol and buried my head in the sand. I'm not ready to face dentistry without X-rays or anaesthetic.

SassehMonsta Tue 07-Oct-14 11:28:55

Ouchies Peace! Glad to hear you are feeling marginally better CatFace.

30+3 today as well, had my flu and whooping cough jabs this morning as was too ill last week to make my appointment.

Everything went mad last week, sick for 3 days, landlady put house on market for other investors/landlords, blood sugars went mad with stress, and decided to start my mat leave yesterday. Luckily, house is now in the process of being sold to another investor, lovely lady, who viewed at the weekend (had 4 house viewings on Sat!!). Bloods are back down to sensible levels now as well.

Still have some things to do to prep for baby, but plenty of time now Im on mat leave - I also have things I need to collect from my office at some point though.... No idea wether to go in on a day when I know people will be there, or hit it up at a weekend to remove my stuff (I have access pass and key for 24/7 access purposes!). Booked in for antenatal classes as well, in Nov, and also a tour of labour ward. Eeeks.

8-10 weeks until baby! AAHH!

LotsaTuddles Tue 07-Oct-14 17:14:33

Peace, theycan use anaesthetic as long as it's only a local (I find this out afterI hada filling done).

Is anyone else REALLY thirsty?

Peaceloveandbiscuits Tue 07-Oct-14 17:24:34

Oh Lotsa that's good to know! Thank you.
I'm so fed up with going to the toilet that I'm not drinking as much as I should be confused it hurts so much to get out of bed anyway, let alone with a full bladder!
Has anyone started NCT/antenatal classes yet? My first session is next Wednesday and I'm excited, but also nervous! I'm not very good at social situations and "ice breaking exercises" are my worst nightmare. Besides, it's 8-10pm which is laaaate for me these days!! Sounded doable when I booked them months ago wink

Somersetgirl1990 Tue 07-Oct-14 18:02:18

I've had 3 nct classes so far - love them, everyone is really nice and it's great to be around people that are also pregnant! Dp loves it as well which surprised me! The first week we did a few ice breaking things, but they weren't too bad and were actually quite fun grin
