I'm trying to cook breakfast, clean up the kitchen, calm DD, read MN and create the new thread....all at once. I AM MAD, I SAY!!!

TwilightSurfer Wed 06-Aug-08 12:58:51

....and it seems I've only slightly burnt our biscuits. shock

mummypud Wed 06-Aug-08 13:02:06

cograts on the new thread ts! expertly done as always .... not much happening at the moment here, niggly pains that dont turn int o anything , will some one tell this baby it has to arrive on a day when i have childcare covered and dont just have back ups!

LadyOfWaffle Wed 06-Aug-08 13:04:24

Wow, so many babies already! Congratulations everyone!!!!! I can't believe i'm only 2 days away for EDD, although the MW said I have (well, she asked if I was ok with it - but what can you say?!) to book in for a 'stretch and sweep' for the 15th Aug., maybe it's a sign she doesn't think baby will come? And discussed induction. Baby is still 4/5 (with an arrow pointing upwards next to it?) engaged, still the same painful twinges but nothing really consistent yet... I was so convinced I would have baby early! The MW I had on Monday confirmed I had severe SPD, but said there isn't much they can do now - she is trying to rush me a physio appointment but doubts i'll get it in time. I am glad I asked the new MW, so miffed the other one shrugged it off three times. That's about it for an update from me... all getting abit tedious now! x

ooooh, biscuits! Must jot that down for DH to get...mmmmmmm

LadyOfWaffle Wed 06-Aug-08 13:04:53

mummypud - you're due the same day as me

CaptainCaveman Wed 06-Aug-08 13:14:31

Ooooh it's a bit echoey in here <ahem> where Are you all?

miamla Wed 06-Aug-08 13:15:48

VG just had a closer look at the stats and noticed the size of your little one... blimey! well done girl! its making my eyes water just thinking about it! how's he doing today? has he managed another feed yet? hope you're managing to get a cuddle or two in

message to all who aren't first timers
come on then, why did none of you warn me about the explosive luminous orange poo?? Theo managed a corker earlier... over my trousers, himself, changing mat, the carpet. Just started cleaning up and he shot another one out! it was at this point that i shouted for DP to come and assist. Once he'd stopped laughing at us he helped admirably.

cyteen Wed 06-Aug-08 13:23:51

Oh dear grin at explosive poo.

miamla Wed 06-Aug-08 13:26:58

and yes, you're right, i had to take my ring off because it was a bit tight on my finger

so we weren't really not engaged but it is lovely being re-engaged

CC i'm here * waves

they booked me in for a date to be induced on my EDD. i imagine its just a general policy to make sure there's a plan B if plan A doesn't happen

TS loving the new thread! i'm going to try and keep better track of this one, i read about a page from the last one!

one of my "friends" keeps referring to my DS as "Leo". i have told her repeatedly (including in a text message as well in case she keeps mis-hearing) and this morning we've had a card for baby Leo. I suspect she's doing it to wind me up. I guess i should just ignore it and wait until she gets something engraved and then laugh at her! Hey, maybe one of you girls should have a baby called Leo and then I'll pass the cards and presents on to you! I wrote friend in "" because we've not really had much contact since i broke my back 2.5 yrs ago. she didnt really cope v well with the news and argued with me that i could have told her sooner. hmmm what when i was in the ambulance? would that have been better? oops, this has turned into a bit of a rant. she's just a bit of a strange woman, i know, i should just ignore her

miamla Wed 06-Aug-08 13:28:00

cyteen hmm, thanks for your support! i hope you noticed it was explosive poo times TWO!!

cyteen Wed 06-Aug-08 13:31:13

Yes, sorry mate - I'm just getting in the lulz while I still can wink

CaptainCaveman Wed 06-Aug-08 13:36:22

the thing is miamla you do forget! Oliver pooed all over the towel on his change mat yesterday. Peed all over it today! The brain tricks you into forgetting so that you go on to have more than one child!!

bealcain Wed 06-Aug-08 13:51:01

sorry miamla....i should have posted the pix of ds2 showering me from my thighs down in his nice yellow poo!i got covered!

dizzydixies Wed 06-Aug-08 14:06:36

TS lovely new thread as always smile

CC he is BEAUTIFUL bless him! hoping the toe curling moments becoming less frequent for you

we had a good night last night but not such a great feed today - never mind as long as the good ones start out weighing the bad ones will soldier on - sat there last night chanting what I'd read off those sites as a kind of mantra blush

VG great to hear from you and hoping that DS2 will be right at your side very soon - lots of love from minidixie to mini VG!

so when do we start organising the weddings then? I think we're on a bit of a winner here with the boys out numbering the girls - some bartering please grinwink

miamla envy re rings - tried mine this morning and needless to say didn't happen sad

good luck anyone with twinges today, Dylan has just had big explosive poop so time to shout on DH to have some 'quality' time with him miniest one grin

back later hopefully

miamla Wed 06-Aug-08 14:07:56

cyteen revenge will be sweet!

glad to hear i'm not the only one with a towel covered in wee and poo! his "fountains" are really impressive!

ataraxis Wed 06-Aug-08 14:20:28

maimla - lololol at that grin. And when Theo gets a bit older you can have all the fun of 'standing up weeing' and 'outside weeing' - just remember with the latter that you always make them wee with the wind...

TwilightSurfer Wed 06-Aug-08 14:28:06

ARRGGGHHH I keep trying to sit and read MN but keep getting interrupted.

Thanks for the reminder about the poo Miamla. I knew there was a reason I put all those cloth diapers by the changing table....not to wrap wee one but to put down on the table each time she's changed.....easier to toss in the laundry I think. I think I have about 50 cloth diapers for that reason (all handmedowns from friends).

Bealcain, have you considered your labour may be stalled BECAUSE your hospital bag isn't ready.hmm LOL

Cyteen, I think you need to do that yoga position I talked about two months ago to get that baby to engage. Prop yourself up at about 45 degrees (seated more or less), open you legs wide and put your feet together (making a diamond in front of you with them). Rest there for a while. The slant (pelvic tilt), gravity and opening of the hip area will allow the baby to slide down

I'm with everyone on the CAT front. My cats are all WAY TOO cuddley at the moment. That's sweet except I have two that are 20lbs each....not to comfy in the lap mind you.

Foghorn {{{hugs}}}
Sarah {{{hugs}}}
Sorry no babies yet ladies...
Hey, what about Sibh???

VG I'm so glad you can be with us right now. I'm sending you and LO positive vibes.<<<<<POSITIVE>>>>>>>>>smile

dizz don't worry, you'll be able to wear it again soon. its taken a week for mine to fit again so still early days for you

changing cloths are a great idea, thanks for that one TS

libbyssister Wed 06-Aug-08 14:40:39

Hi everyone, lovely pics Captain, makes me look forward to mine! I forget sometimes that there's gonna be a baby hmm

Have been in quite a bit of pain since the ECV yesterday. Maybe it's just a shock to the system SUDDENLY having a head wedged down there. I'm walking very slowly on tippy toes. Mind you, my bad back seems to be better so maybe the breech position was contributing to that? I was told by the doc that there's only a 3% chance that the baby with move back to being breech now, so fingers crossed.

Better go and wake up DS1. He was having a hour's 'quiet time' in his room and dropped off to sleep. Good thing too, he's been a right grumpy little *&$% this morning grin

TwilightSurfer Wed 06-Aug-08 14:47:26

Libby NICE the ECV is working. The baby head in the crotch takes a bit to get use to so don't worry.

Your welcome, Miamla smile

dizzydixies Wed 06-Aug-08 15:06:18

TS whats the trick with the vaseline and witch hazel? I have still have one pesky pile which is not fun angrysad
