Kveta I am really sorry to hear about your friends baby. I hope everything works out well for them.

Thanks for the new thread.

I have been doing housework this morning and moving all the ruddy toys upstairs so I am not doing it during labour grin I might have over done it though as now I have strong BHs so sitting down now.

rhibutterfly Sun 27-May-12 13:17:19

kveta hope good news arrives from your friend soon xx and love the new thread name.
My feet are so humungous(don't think i spelt that right) that i haven't been able to get flipflops on since thurs, don't know what i'll do to pick up from school tomorrow ;(

blondiedollface Sun 27-May-12 14:33:54

Marking place, love the new thread title!

Kveta Thoughts with your friend, hopefully as she is in the states she is somewhere with top-notch facilities and they will do all they can for her premie DS.

Xx

gwenniebee Sun 27-May-12 14:43:03

Kveta I was telling my DH about your friend and he was sympathising with your DH.... hope everything works out well for them.

Great thread title smile Here be me marking my place!

My feel also appear to have been replaced by something more akin to balloons... wondering if I will float off, foot first, into the sky....?

bemybebe Sun 27-May-12 14:45:00

Checking in... star BH vary for different people. Most in my NCT class did not experience any yet and we are all also June people, I have mine since around 22 weeks and they can be rather frightening by their intensity. The consultant is saying having them as well as not having them is normal and different from person to person and pregnancy to pregnancy...

I am 36+2 today, seems still a long way away but the arrival of the babies (and how cute are those!! grin) is making it just so so real. Cannot wait to meet my own lo, but just not yet hopefully. Hang on in there for three more weeks please!

SeriouslyStrongCheddar Sun 27-May-12 14:47:43

Kveta - thanks for setting up the new thread. Hope things improve for your friend.

Marking my place on this final (hopefully!) thread!

Can I just say, on a slightly whiny note, that of all the 'problems' I envisaged in pregnancy, sore hands was not even on the list. Carpal Tunnel sucks. Have given up with splints and will just ice hands and wrists now and again. Appreciate this is a totally minor thing compared to what some are dealing with though, so whinge over.

Have scan & consultant appt tomorrow, which I'm dreading (as always) but will at least know if baby is breech or not. Spoke to my mum earlier who said that when she was in labour with me, I turned breech during labour and the doc had to turn me back again!

Please baby, if we get you the right way up before that point, don't do that to me! grin

MammaInTheMaking Sun 27-May-12 16:02:12

seriously I've taken to holding a cube of ice (those plastic cubes with water that go in freezer) in each hand to get some relief from the swelling and carpel tunnel. I get 2 new cubes each time I make a loo trip in the night. Is nasty but works a bit. Don't know what to do about my feet though...

Smallwonder Sun 27-May-12 16:41:04

grin great new thread K grin

Nothing to report for once, feet up listening to boys splash around and DH doing the barbie. I bloody deserve it me thinks! wink

justwantcheese Sun 27-May-12 18:13:04

I would be really grateful if someone could add me to the list as I can't seem to so it off my phone. It's justwantscheese dd2 due 6th June. Thanks

DairyNips Sun 27-May-12 18:19:35

Just signing in on the new thread smile

kveta thanks for setting it up. Sorry to hear abou your friend, how sad, hope everything works out for them..

Spent all day swapping the furniture from our room to the boys room and vica versa. I am knackered, my sciatica is totally playing up now so I'm limping about like an old lady. I haven't even lifted much, dh did the lifting, I've just been hoovering and moving lighter things about.

TeaandHobnobs Sun 27-May-12 19:20:00

Thanks for the new thread Kveta. Very sorry to hear about your friend, fingers crossed for them that everything works out.

So pleased to hear I have been joined by two more team members, woohoo! grin C'mon the rest of you wink - no seriously, hoping for lovely calm deliveries at the appropriate time for everyone still waiting! I am rooting for you all.

SSC sorry about the carpal tunnel, that is most inconvenient sad Hope it will clear up fully after the birth.

gwennie hope you are putting those feet up!

By the way, if anyone is interested, I just ordered some nursing bras from www.nursingbra-shop.co.uk/ - prices are a bit less than figleaves / the shops, and there is a 45 day returns window (which is handy).

Went out for Sunday lunch with two of DH's colleagues today, and tried out a local pub which has recently had a fancy makeover. It was really nice - really good food (at a price though!) - but best of all, I have learned that it is a member of the "Mumsnet Family Friendly Programme" grin, which meant it was overrun with children (in a good way? confused) and there are lots of parent and baby activities held there. Yay! smile

And best of all - DH went back to work yesterday, since his two weeks of Paternity Leave are up, to learn that the partners have decided to give him an extra week and a half of compassionate leave so he can support me at home! grin How ridiculously nice is that?! So now he doesn't have to be back until after the bank holiday weekend. I did however point out that if he is going to be at home for longer, he should be waiting on me hand and foot grin. I was not pleased when I had to ask several times over the course of 2 hours yesterday to get some lunch hmm

BabyTea is now 1 month old (OMG shock). Back to the hospital on Tuesday for his eye test - hoping to catch up with some familiar faces while we are there smile

Right, you babies, you be nice to your mothers - cephalic presentations please, enough kicking for reassurance but not so much it hurts, and arrivals at an appropriate time!

T&H xxx

CathFin Sun 27-May-12 20:45:50

Kveta - so sad for your friend, hope their baby pulls through ok.

Tea - can't believe its a whole month since you had Baby Tea already - time flies! Lucky you and DH too getting a bit of extra time - makes a huge difference when you work for a company that does the right thing!

Warlin - hope birth went okay and Congratulations!!!

I think I might pop, feel absurdly large now and suspect I look it as every time I tell people I've got about 4 weeks to go they look pretty surprised. Naturally I'm worrying whether I've got a monster size baby growing after DS being 9lb4oz too... sure it will be fine, just would like to get it over and done with (as I'm sure everyone else here does too!)

McKayz Sun 27-May-12 21:11:18

I was coming to post something. Nothing important but something. I wonder if my memory will return once I give birth or if after 3 children its completely knackered.

StarlightMcKenzie Sun 27-May-12 21:18:00

Blimmin BH again this evening.

Gotta get a TENS sorted ASAP. Also my birth plan. I am really procrastinating as I am quite 'particular' lol

emblosion Sun 27-May-12 21:22:00

Just checking in on the new thread! <waves>

Kveta Sun 27-May-12 21:23:19

Kayzr, not if my mum is anything to go by :D

Lots of bh here too, getting quite painful. Too hot to sleep, but we are in bed already and hoping the room cools down soon. It's 24 degrees just now, got the gro egg out earlier to check it is still working!

Hope everyone gets some kip tonight!

ellybett Sun 27-May-12 21:28:17

Fab thread name kveta, am very sorry to hear about your friend.

Said it on FB but just for official purposes huge congratulations to warlin and dh. That is one cute bubba. Hope fan is doing well too. Can't believe baby tea is a month old! Seriously that time has gone ridiculously fast!

Well, LO seems to have either changed positions to a more transverse one or I am carrying a baby octopus as I'm feeling limbs all over the place! Got my 36 wk mw appointment tomorrow so will get position checked then. Got to take DD with me though as CM is doing her best to spectacularly let me down at the moment, probably because she knows that once our contracted is terminated then we'll not be returning to her, cos she's pants.

dairy cannot believe you were so energetic in weather like this! I am good for absolutely nothing right now. However, due to DH having 'man flu' it means he's good for nothing either so I haven't actually managed to be as thoroughly lazy as I'd like to!

Have been at my great-niece's christening today, which makes me sound really old! Was lovely day but far too hot for posh togs and patronising comments about 'not long now'. You can't hit people in church though, I checked.

AmethystMoon Sun 27-May-12 21:43:45

Evening all, thanks for the new thread kveta
Huge congrats to warlin yay! So good that more babies are here grin
Hope all is going well fan x
Wonder who will go next?
Can I join the big fat swollen feet club too? I have comedy feet grin
Lovely to hear all is well tea and that's fab news that your DH's work have given him more time at home smile
So sorry to hear about your friend's baby kveta that is so sad sad
Sounds like you've been busy surf no lettuces yet but been planting runner beans today. Tomatoes tomorrow smile
Hope you all get a decent night's sleep x

surfmama Mon 28-May-12 03:43:04

lovely new thread for me to moan on. too hot. have heartburn. hope all junies are having sweet dreams.

SeriouslyStrongCheddar Mon 28-May-12 08:12:24

Morning all

Hope everyone's well today.

Just thought I'd pop on to amuse you all with the fact that I was awoken by a rather disturbing dream this morning. Dreamt that a very large, purple, praying mantis was clinging to the underside of my right foot and looking up at me. It let go eventually. So much for a lie in on my first day of holiday / maternity leave.

Very strange. grin

Will pop back after scan and consultant appt to report MiniCheddar position!
