We've got newbies to cheer us on, the February Warm-Up is complete, after waiting nine long months it's only bloody time for March Madness! Welcome to JS thread no. 46!(1000 Posts)
Welcome, welcome, welcome to the 46th 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 45th grads thread is HERE
The thread we have graduated from is HERE in its 59th 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. I really hope that worked!
Fecking DS woke up at 4am, DH got him straight back to sleep no worries, but there's zero chance in hell that I'll go back down too now <weeps a little at the fact this will new reality v soon>
DH &I were also discussing how it's going to be weird to discard one of the names we've grown to love over the last few months. This bump is known as boy name/girl name, it's going to be sad to throw one of those names away!
Hope everyone got better sleep than me
See you all later I guess
Right there with you .... Been awake for an hour. I think we're going to give up and just call baby bean as that's what he's been known as for the last 9 months
Ta for the new Fred!
Thanks Thurs! 10/10 for new Fred
sky I'm sure I've read that only ~10% of births start with waters breaking, so in theory it's not v likely it would happen to u when out n about... although there is of course the LOS to counter that!
Watched Philomena last night - what a tear-fest!
Morning all! Just place marking til a more decent hour...
Nowhere near as much sleep as I'd like, but feck it! C'est la vie...
Actually can't believe it's March already. That bloody flew in!
Pinch punch viroids!
Excellent new thread Thurs
ill I forgot to answer you past night. I had an 8week scan at 7+6 on the fertility clinic to confirm viable pgcy then got discharged and told to register with mw.
Happy March! Though the 3.30am wake up wasn't too happy....got through a bit more of my book though!
Haha Mermaid, after I made the Fred I picked up booked up and woke up at 8am with the light on, book next to me and DS hollering about Cheerios
It's absolutely pissing down here. I hoped to just take DS to the park to wear him out for an hour, but it looks like I'm going to have to engage my brain a bit more than that. I seriously can't be fucked.
Looking forward to getting normal trapped wind, if any after this pregnancy where it seems to gets stuck in top of my bump and then wake the baby up as it slooooooooowly travels down
Thanks for the new thread Thurs.
Yay, it's March, my favourite month! Now to plan something of a special birthday with an 8 month baby bump.
Congrats on getting the all clear Yoga, must be such a relief.
Sky I have a couple of changing mats from the Nappy Lady that I'm planning to use over the top of the cheapo padded ones. They are thin but waterproof. She recommends the big ones for protecting your bed before waters break so maybe pop a small one in your bag in case you have to sit in a taxi.
Sky I carry a couple of maternity pads in my bag. I have an inco pad in the car. Of course, being this prepared means they won't break when I'm out! Obviously carrying your notes is important.
As for calling an ambulance if your waters break - no. It's not a medical emergency, in fact it doesn't even mean you are about to give birth. I would just go home and call the labour ward to let them know. Only exceptions would be if there is more than a show of blood (that is a 999 jobby), or if there is meconium staining (then I would call the labour ward straight away and take their advice).
Oh, thanks for the new Fred Thursday and very well done on linking the stats
Fuck sake. Typical. We get the plastering done and next day it chucks it down with rain. Stuffs never gonna dry. Mental cat has also vommed all over the floor and my gag reflux is not what it used to be
Fanks for the spanking new Fred and excellent Fred filling Thursday! I wish now I had logged on last night. Had the pregsomnia from 3-5ish... part hunger from my 10 hour fast and part paranoia after experiencing a small leak last night. Leak was likely to have been wee escaping after a particularly hard punch to the bladder. Have been experiencing period like cramps off and on in no regular pattern and at about the same intensity since about 3am. Would love it if it was labour but suspect it is just punchy baby... will ask the sonographer how me cervix is looking. 99% sure today is the right scan day
kate your dp sounds lovely. I am sure he has just said what most DPs think but are too chicken to admit
like mine he will relax a bit when he can see and feel movements and you'll get used to it too
Finally unpacked the cot there... have been putting that off for a while. Just a Chicco Next2Me so not a lot of work, but still!
In-laws making their plans too, we have most of the weekends in April now booked up with visitors from Ireland, starting on the 9th. Really doesn't seem far off at all now!
I spoke too soon, the stats linked at the top are view only. Here's the link to the editable stats:
At least you're seeing someone today sky, they'll be able to tell you! My experience so far this pregnancy is that I've had tonnes of niggles that tempt me into thinking it might be the start of things...but is actually just my aging body losing the will to carry on
country have you got a dehumidifier? We had our kitchen &a barn plastered in the new year and that made the world of difference.
Things are deffo getting close - I just cried because a delivery I hoped would come this week won't be arriving til a week Saturday AND I just cleaned the bathroom including the grout. That just screams crazy nesting hormones to me.
Thanks thurs didn't think if that!
Pains still happening quite steadily. Nothing that is interfering with my day but I am feeling crabby and tired. Might start noting them if they carry on after lunch.
Thursday you're not bloody old woman
like me, I am old
country cursed flippin rain!
gx for a sneaky queue jump sky! My body certainly feels aging, I'm quite looking forward to getting back to doing some fitness stuff in due course.
I just channeled my hormones to write a strongly worded email to the bed people who let me down.
I'm bloody starving today. Really want an enormous burger. Guess bean is about to grown again. Oops to late buddy your getting evicted!!
Sat waiting for my growth scan. Then gonna head home and hibernate cos the weather is shit!
Is it tomorrow country? Squeeeeee
