It's sneeze birth's galore thanks to our fanny stretchers! We're soaking in piss and praying for Bat's hospital bag. We're avoiding our mens 'Annie Sloaners' and eating all the cake! It's JS Gras 39!(1000 Posts)
Welcome, welcome, welcome to the 39th 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 37th grads fred is HERE
The thread we have graduated from is HERE in its 53rd 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.
Ahh my hospital bag had a mention, so proud! It will be complete in the next few days, promise
"A few days"
Bollocks, I say! Bollocks!
Ha I don't blame you for calling bullshit, I'm blatantly going to be running around mid contraction finishing off the packing!
I finished off the last thread.
Thanks for the new one jelly!
gaggia did a baby! So sorry I missed it! Bet you were a champion! Is he a bonny ginger? Massive congratulations my lovely
you're totally one of my faves
pretz I came across an Instagram profile you might like. Very inspirational instagram.com/bodyposipanda/
I'm back!!! Had to completely reset my phone in the end as it went all screwy. Of course I lost my contacts, put on Facebook that people should text me. Which of course means I'm now getting random messages from people thinking they are hilarious
Glad you and baby are okay Would!
Exciting stuff on the baby movements front for a few of you. Honey it will happen for you soon!
Too many hours at work today. Knackered.
Hey would glad you are OK!
I just realised I missed out the 'd' in grads....fucking idiot
Hi tink <waves madly> he's not a ginger!!! This boy be raven haired! He's mostly furious about life in general though so he's definitely mine
<waves at la> night feed? J is enjoying a rare off boob moment.
would so glad about your scan that you didn't need....if that makes sense.
pretzel I was normally sore after scans too, sonographers can be brutal with the poking and full bladder really makes stuff worse.
honey you're 18 weeks??? Whaaaaaaat! You're almost half way!
I pissed myself Last night. No control over it. Bollocks. It just rained out while I was having a drink. Even though my fanjo is intact I feel like I have internal organs hanging out of it. Nice.
mountain have you done you're birth story yet?
Oh ga - sympathies! I'll be joining you with the pissing soon I'm sure having done my pelvic floors approximately 3 times during my whole pregnancy.
Feeling a bit sorry for myself today, had a horrible pain yesterday which I've had twice before - once at 30 weeks and another time at 34 weeks.....so I know it isn't labour related but it bloody hurts and I didn't sleep well because of it and feel a bit achey this morning. We were supposed to be going to ikea this morning but I can't imagine anything worse when feeling a bit shite so poor mr bat has volunteered himself for a solo trip tomorrow! We are spending the afternoon with friends (Eid holidays here before you think we are all jobless) so I need to stop being such a grump before then! Not sure if the pain is anything I should look into - last time it happened the doc and midwife both said oh it's probably stretchy pain and didn't seem concerned - but I did worry a bit about my half packed hospital bag at 4am when I was awake in pain with baby going nuts! Anyway enough of the woe is me - it could be worse, I could be off to ikea!
Ga I know! Mental! I am excited but also in denial.
Had a pizza hut last night. Yummy stuffed crust. Sadly still can't face chicken breast so ended up with Hawaiian. It was good though. And I have left over for
Aww bat maybe phone the mw to get checked out anyway?
Got another scan today courtesy of that pre-eclampsia study I'm doing.
Feel like a drowned rat there's so much rain where I am today!!!
Oh we also signed the contracts for the new house today!! :D
Ooh, Jelly when are you moving?
Bat my bag was about 90% packed when I went into labour. It's very unlikely you'll have super painful contractions from the get go, so you'll have time to finish it. I would recommend though that you make a detailed list of what you still need, so that you can grab everything and chuck it in your bag if needed. Especially for things that you can't put into the bag right now, like phone charger or going home clothes if you don't have that many day to day. Sorry you had a rubbish night.
DP is firery ginger, and we thought DS would be too. Everyone did. First question everyone asked when he was born was what colour hair he had He is blond now! But now we think this one might be ginger
Jelly, how exciting. I like taking part in studies. How often are you going to have scans?
My back pain is getting worse. It was kind of left side of my pelvis/hip, but it's spreading now. Bending over or to the side at certain angle is painful, and walking sometimes too. I think I need to dig out my gym ball...
Think I just managed almost 12 hours sleep! Woke up a few times for the necessary wees and turning but managed to get back off to sleep almost straight away from them. Soooo much better than usual!
Waiting on my manager and hr's decision today about whether I can do office work or if I have to wait for an occupational health appointment. I don't mind either way now because since I have the fit note from my GP saying I can do office based work I can still continue with my other job and it's up to the ward if they want me off sick for the rest for now but at least I won't have to do clinical shifts
bat as has been said, if you are still in pain might be worth asking someone about it. When's your next appointment?
jelly I'm jealous of you seeing your little baby again! Feels like ages since I saw babycandy
honey how was your breakfast pizza? Pizza is my favourite food!
and chocolate but it's harder to class that as a meal I could eat it every day
jc I'm glad to hear things with work are more sorted for you now. Must be a massive relief.
sky thanks for that. I think I find her 'before' pics too triggering though (even though I know exactly how shit and cold she must have felt physically being that underweight).
would yay for heartbeat and boo for rubbishly equipped midwife who worried you for no reason!
jelly thanks for the thread!
Thanks all. Appreciate the support.
18 weeks today. Where did all that time go?!
carrot you have my sympathy. also suffering with back pain
