Breathing through the scanxiety, putting all our faith in Jill and fantasising about illicit paddling pools and fanjo fans - it's JS grads thread 32!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the 32nd grads thread... celebrating the success of Just Shagging in getting us viroids upduffed!

For those that don't know, a 'viroid' is from the original JSing thread 1, where someone was trying to type ladies (in reference to all the JSing ladies), but their phone decided to call us all viroids instead!

The name stuck and we've been the JSing viroids ever since.

The thread we have graduated from is here in its 50th outing. WARNING: they're all a bit kerazy not to mention randy!

There is also a Just Mumming thread here for once your babies come along, or to keep up with the graduated graduates!

There is also a private facebook group (so it doesn't give the game away in your news feed!)... if you want to join to see photos of new babies etc, just ask in-thread!

Here is the stats list, please update your own spot with any updates.

Place marking!!!

La, you're having a baby this month.

LaLaLaaaa Wed 01-Jul-15 13:06:58

Eek.

Loitering with intent...

LaLaLaaaa Wed 01-Jul-15 14:32:32

RM! How you getting on with your lovely new bundle!?

Heard last from wiggly a week ago on Facebook. I'll do a quick Facebook stalk to see if baby's come yet

mountaingirl01 Wed 01-Jul-15 14:38:07

Thanks for all the support viroids, feeling a bit better today although may have had a meltdown on dh earlier

Interested as to what would happen if hv didn't think the house was suitable for baby?! I know we'll be OK, but have tiled floors downstairs and cat who is prone to spontaneous hunger driven violence, both of which could be seen as 'threat to baby' ho hum.

Am I the only one who actually likes this heat?

Place marking! Hello gringrin

Indigoblue2 Wed 01-Jul-15 14:48:40

S'up homeys? I am officially on mat leave!!!! No more trimming horses feet for me does happy dance can't believe I made it to 34 weeks doing my job full time, and tbh I could easily have kept going a few more weeks but DH is insistent enough is enough.

Now for decorating my nursery, buying all the shit I don't have yet, doing my garden, getting the maternity swimsuit out the cupboard, having all our windows replaced and catching up with you lot much more gringrin

Indigoblue2 Wed 01-Jul-15 14:49:35

Btw I went to a la Leche meeting yesterday and it was fan-fucking-tastic! I learnt loads smile

Loitering within tent x

pretzelpieces Wed 01-Jul-15 15:15:04

I survived the stuffy conference room! grin thought I was going to puke everywhere most of the time but thankfully didn't.

I feel the same about raisins mae and jelly for sure the worst is when they sneak them into otherwise savoury foods. For the love of god NO

I'm not looking forward to having a HV. Everyone I speak to has a story about a rude or unhelpful one. Mind you with my various mentals related referrals I'll be well used to people poking their noses in and asking unhelpful questions by then wink

pretzelpieces Wed 01-Jul-15 15:15:24

Oh and thank you for the fred la! grin

honeysucklejasmine Wed 01-Jul-15 15:15:55

So, my red cell count is rather pathetically low. Anaemia FTW! Also really struggling with hayfever. Eugh, damn pollen.

Also, have not seen crazy cat all day. She wasn't hiding upstairs last time I looked. Will go on another hunt now. sad

LaLaLaaaa Wed 01-Jul-15 15:18:06

Are you actually in a tent pis?

Indigo - hooray!!!! It's awesome! I'm having a nap! At 3:15pm! On a weekday!

Mountain I love the heat! I just also love finding ways to cool down if I get bit too warm. The feet in water is proving to be a winner.

Only time I don't love the warm weather is when dressed in too many clothes and having to do something I don't want to do that is uncomfortable in the heat!

LaLaLaaaa Wed 01-Jul-15 15:20:02

Boo honey sad does that mean iron tablets?

I'm not sure what HV is looking for - our house is pretty unthreatening apart from the smell of cat wee

honeysucklejasmine Wed 01-Jul-15 15:32:20

Can't find crazy cat. Hopefully she is napping somewhere and will turn up eventually. sad

teejayem Wed 01-Jul-15 15:38:47

I like the heat too, just not with a baby who wants to be on me aaaaaall the time.
We did some feet dunking in the paddling pool earlier but he still seemed to be happier with his hot little face glued to my chest. It's 36c here. Pretty sure my boobs are producing something akin to Horlicks as oppose to refreshing milk.
Ooh! I've just had shopping delivered and I got some mojito ice lollies. They have real life booze in them. Will report back on lolly-worthiness.

RhiannonElward Wed 01-Jul-15 15:45:38

Thanks for the thread La! Do you think this'll be the one where we get to meet Minila? Could be...grin

OK I'm 25+2 now and have bought one pack of nappies and 3 sleepsuits. I need to get my shit sorted out.

Boo for anaemia, it's horrible and late pregnancy is quite hard enough without that.

Jealous of you viroids who know how to appreciate heat. I hate it, my sweat moustache has spread all over my face and DD won't get off my lap despite my pleas. I am going to beg dp to finally sort out the garden so I can spend the weekend in a paddling pool made for toddlers. Might need to reinforce that first, I am HUGE.shock

WouldRatherHaveCake Wed 01-Jul-15 15:56:44

Hello viroids, not been around much and nothing interesting to report! Hope you lot are doing well

ChatEnOeuf Wed 01-Jul-15 15:59:18

Widdly's still to pop...can't believe it - we shared a due date.

maemay Wed 01-Jul-15 15:59:36

In general I'm a fan of heat and sunshine, but this is just toooo hot!
I think my happy medium is between 22-25 degrees. 21 or less I'm putting my jumper on, but more than 25 I'm melting.

Tempting to leave work early to beat rush hour on the bus. Really hope my TfL "Baby on Board" badge comes soon. Hot jerky-abouty buses are no fun when you're already feeling nauseous and there are no seats and you just want to collapse. (at least my bazoomas won't be bouncing around on the bus anymore though, eh!)
When I do get the badge, I'll have to pray that I don't bump into someone I know while wearing it as that could be awkward (8+4 weeks, so not really telling people yet!)

Pis "loitering within tent" love it! ahahaha! grin Are you going camping somewhere or just getting it out for some shade?

Tee Mojito lollies sound like THE ONE. Whittards used to do a "cucumber and mint cooler" (basically a posh cordial) which was yummy when made into ice lollies. I should get my lolly-maker set out again! ...Though my freezer is currently chocka-full of potato waffles!

WouldRatherHaveCake Wed 01-Jul-15 16:16:58

I've been hating the heat with a passion - DS just can't cope and cries. A lot...
