We're really racking up the threads!

Im really low and heavy too dusty Due on the 5th and mine have all been born within 2 weeks before due date so from 22nd onwards!

Fruit, I wish, a small apple after a meal is ok most of the time! I dream of mangoes and nectarines and banana milkshakes!

I've been having some spasm type things in my lower spine the last couple of mornings... like a pulsing pain, lasts maybe 20 seconds then goes... any ideas? I wonder if it's all the laying on my hips, think my back has had enough!

First meal pizza sounds fab @Stroan ... I don't know what mine will be... maybe an Indian or same with the pizza... can't think about it yet though or I'll cry again coz I can't have it - a couple of weeks ago I broke down to dh coz I really really wanted a kitkat, he thought I was a crazy person!!

It must be such a strange mix of emotions for everyone going from 1 to 2, I'd actually like a similar gap @Stroan

36 weeks today and now starting to feel it! Waddling has well and truly commenced!!

@boodles101 It seems so unfair that you are having to wait so long when there's two in there. I really hope the nice consultant is better this week.

@happydays00 hopefully you won't be waiting too long, you have a good enough reason for baby to be born so might be ahead of some of the other ladies. Mine is at 11am as others are booked, not sure how that will work for fasting. I might need a 3am snack!

How old is your DD? Mine is so excited and I think she will be wonderful with her brother but she's also used to being really busy so a new pace might be strange.

Aww @DustyDoorframes how lovely! How is the post-holiday recovery going? I was struggling with maternity clothes a few weeks ago, ended up permanently in leggings. Although my jeans now fit again as I've lost about a stone. Too hot for jeans though!

Eek @knobjockey that's quite a bit bigger. They do tend to overestimate though. Do you feel like this one is a lot bigger.

@ivegotthedecaf hope "d"p bucks his ideas up so you can have a relaxing weekend. As relaxing as four kids and an annoying partner can be....

@kyles101 I could eat a whole watermelon in one go right now.

Dyra Sat 10-Aug-19 09:45:26

GD fasting wise they can put you on a glucose drip and monitor sugars. But most likely they will just change the order of the list on the day so you would go first. It's a rare day when we go in original list order.

So excited for you all. Babies really soon!

The first thing I'm having when I get home is pate on toast.

Stroan Sat 10-Aug-19 09:50:12

Thanks @Dyra I assumed that would be the case. I'm sure I'll find out on Thursday.

My Mum brought me pate and fresh baguette to hospital last time! This time I've requested pineapple upside down cake.

DustyDoorframes Sat 10-Aug-19 10:01:36

@Stroan I like the sound of your mum!
Holiday recovery well underway- we literally all lay in a heap for most of yesterday- didn't even unpack! DP took the kids to the cinema in the afternoon, which was about the limit of activity we could collectively muster. He's brilliant, he's already doing way more than his share, and he quite often sends me to bed if I'm struggling a bit. But that does mean we are both knackered all the time!

Now I'm back it's to-do list time, at home and work. Feels like there is a lot still to prepare for, and no excuses now...

IVEgottheDECAF Sat 10-Aug-19 10:19:14

Ty stroan my hope atm is they all go out for a couple of hours later so i can nap! Got some music on now and cleaning the kitchen chaos! Amazing how quickly it looks like something off 'How clean is your house'!

Any one had any news on maternity allowance? My 6 weeks since confirmation text is up on Weds so i should have a letter by then but dont feel like i will!

Exitstrategist Sat 10-Aug-19 11:09:28

I am seven weeks waiting on maternity allowance and haven’t heard anything.

IVEgottheDECAF Sat 10-Aug-19 11:10:09

exit 7 weeks since the text?

Exitstrategist Sat 10-Aug-19 11:18:45

Yes- I got the text on 22nd June. Can’t get through on phone. Don’t respond to email. Unbelievable

IVEgottheDECAF Sat 10-Aug-19 11:28:53

Urgh that is crap. I had put i wanted to receive money from 24/6 so this week that is 8 lots of money!

Exitstrategist Sat 10-Aug-19 13:56:44

Update- just got the letter from maternity allowance saying I am entitled to full amount. First payment backdated will be made on Thursday so took exactly 7 weeks from text

Puglover88 Sat 10-Aug-19 16:40:51

Does anyone else’s bump just suddenly jolt out of nowhere like their baby has just had some sort of weird spasm?!

challengeyourreality Sat 10-Aug-19 18:54:22

@Puglover88 yes, mine does that too, I called my MW about it and she said it could be a cough or a sneeze.

Don't know what I will have has my first meal but definitely planning sushi in the first week and lots of unpasturised cheese.

Started batch cooking tonight, planning to make double most nights now and just freeze the second portion.

Also got DH morivated to help with the nesting so got lots of heavy lifting done today.

Tomorrow going to look at another pram on way to SILs birthday party. I really hope it's as well maintained as it seems to be from the photos. I love buying second hand but it's a real lottery. My dream purchase right now is an artipoppe sling - if anyone knows a good second hand site for that please, please direct me!

Florencenotflo Sat 10-Aug-19 20:13:19

Oh I definitely want pate on some nice crusty bread! It's the only thing I've missed! Oh and an ice cold glass of Pinot Grigio.

Shall I make a new thread? Not sure I know how to add the link but I'll try!

Hope that works!

iano Sat 10-Aug-19 20:17:39

Got my section date through (at 40+6) as they don't want to induce me. Looks like I have a pre-section appointment the day before. Do I need DH to come for that? I'm just wondering what that's all about. I don't what him wasting a day paternity leave if I can go on my own and it's just a chat.

Stroan Sat 10-Aug-19 20:47:18

Thanks @Florencenotflo

Think the other link got doubled up. Does this one work?
