Due Sept 07...The first thing I will do is....... eat Brie, Parma Ham, drink wine and anything else banned... then, I will tie MY OWN shoelaces!'(548 Posts)
Ok folks here is the new thread. I have put it into ante natal again for now, we can always start a new one in the post natal forum once we have all popped.
:D Could have used that for a thread title.... Once you pop you just can't stop
LOL, I like that one too
I think it's right that we should still be in the antenatal section, it's only the beginning of September after all, and some people might still be waiting at the beginning of October. Please not me though.
Don't mean to be contrary Mrs F, but I ain't popping anymore after this one! I have well and truely stopped popping!
I like the new thread title. <<whispers>> My dh bought me a long reach shoe horn a few weeks ago! After I wrapped it around his head for the bloomin cheek of it, I did actually use it. But the good news is I can actually bend down now.
Big hello to everyone! Congratulations to the new mummies and their babies. And a special mention to little Cerys. I'm so happy you're heading home soon. I'm sending sparkly purply healing wishes your way, and a big kiss too!
Mrs F, I really like Chatty's idea of getting your dh to refuse your babysitter's leave! Seriously though, its such a shame you could be let down at such short notice. I hope you manage to sort something out. I often think its a shame we don't all live in the same town, then we'd all be sorted on so many levels.
I'm not popping anymore after this one either
Though for a mad moment today, it did occur to me that I've got just enough time to squeeze another one in before I'm 40. Don't know what came over me.
Hey everyone - new thread - the one where i have my baby!
39 weeks tomorrow!!!!!
Kinki that's nothing! My thinking went something along these lines:
I was 23 when I had DD, am 25 now with 2nd. Could get in another 2 when these 2 are nearly 8 and 10, then another 2 when I hit my 40's LOL. . . DH nearly had a heart attack! (He's 10 years my senior! )
I am definately not seriously planning any more though, unless I can be guaranteed a pregnancy like my first, this pregnancy is bad enough to put me off for life!
Like the new thread name BTW just reminds me of what else I have to look forward to when this is all over (if it ever ends that is!!)
Am still convinced LO's not coming in the next week
Still gives me more time to take DD into town to feed ducks and enjoy our time together
Little update on the Homer front: DH found me having a quiet moment today in IL's garden and asked if I was Ok (not that I thought he cared enough to actually voice!) but I ended up just breaking down and we talked a bit and now he's actually going to do some stuff. . . . but we have got to start communicating apparently. . . Said that I have been communicating but he see's it as nagging and doesn't blooming listen anyway so what's the point etc etc, finally got throguh to him and he's actually acting like a grown up now . . . but for how long?
We'll see eh?! Not expecting miracles but also not losing hope
Right, that was an eventful day (not) and, with any luck going swimming with DD tomorrow. . . got to find somewhere open on a Sunday that sells arm bands now my little precious is growing up so fast [sniff]
Have a good one tommorrow ladies, no more popping until I get back, you hear?!!
good luck ladies Sorry for dropping in, the title was so tempting. I have this image of the midwife handing a mom her baby and then a glass of wine and plate of ham.
maybe that's just what I'm dreaming about for myself come March.
Morning ladies. As you can see from the ungodly hour at which I am posting - sleep is being particularly illusive! I woke up a few hours ago and realised that I am going into hospital tomorrow night to have my baby - suddenly I am scared - I'm not sure I know what to do with a baby!
I feel ok now about the idea of an induction - my blood pressure is really unstable and I am terrified that it is putting my LO at risk - it is better that he is out where I can see him and make sure he is ok.
I love the name for the new thread! I actually have a shopping list for my DH to get when the baby comes which includes Brie, Pate, Wine and a rare steak - yum! In addition to eating all of the yummy things which I have been denied over the past nine months I would also like to be able to scrub the hard skin off my feet by myself (TMI?) and put my own socks on!
Anyway, I am going to make myself a hot milk and try to go back to sleep. My best friend is throwing me a baby shower this afternoon and I want to be at my best for it! Have a lovely day everyone!
good morning all

Many congratulations Kelmcd and welcome to the world baby Arben. Another gorgeous lovely baby to add to the growing list.
Wish wish wish my baby would hurry up!!!!
Haley2u - I would let your x partner at least be at some of the birth - He might be a complete tosser, but he is the father and there's nothing you can do about that - unfortunately! The baby wouldn't be here without him! Does that sound patronising? Sorry.
Have got a massive craving for trifle - got to get to my nearest supermarket now. xx
Oh, hayley, I'm sorry, I didn't realise you had had such a rough time, I can't believe I have missed it... are you totally estranged now?
Is he going to be having a big say in how you bring up your child? What a tough situation,you are just going to have to do what you think is best for you
Just caught up on your other thread hayley, what a horrid situation imo if it would stress you out having him in there, then I would tell him he has to wait outside and he can see her afterwards.
Congratulations Kelmcd - another gorgeous baby in the arrivals lounge.
Hayley - I'm sorry to hear you are having such a tough time. I think you have to think about what is best for you - not what is fair on him - sod fair, you are the one who is going to be giving birth. If you would feel better without him there then that's your call - he can come and see her afterwards without having to be there for the intimite (sp?) bits!
Hope everyone is having a lovely morning!
thanks everyone for being so kind. i might let him at birth but after what he has done to me , dont want him on birth cert until he proves him self to be a dad. anyone can be a dad but takes a real man to be a proper father, just dont want him having rights over her. especially when iv spent last 2 weeks in and out of hospital and he could not even contact him. i a feeling a fool letting him in there and my parents are et against the idea. but at sme time i dont want to be the reason he was not there when she asks i years to come. not heard from him all wekend hd no money either which he promised but wants to be there, just sounds completlly like he taking the piss dont you think.
i could quite happily never see him again. but will give him chance to see daughter althiough will be at my family home on my terms.i am soo confused over al this and just wish wed would hurry up and come get that bit out of way, then i can just protect my daughter and look forward to live with my 2 kids.
sorry to rant just noone else i cant talk to
Hayley - That's what we're here for - feel free to rant as much as you like! It must be a very distressing time for you. Hang in there - just think - soon you will be holding your beautiful daughter in your arms!
totally agree with others Hayley - you should do what feels right for you - especially for the labour bit. You don't need any extra stress! We are here to listen to prob's
Congrat's to kelcd and spangly
I am a bit like some others and feeling pretty chilled about it happening - don't feel it's very imminent but will happen when it happens!
Hope everyone has had a relaxing weekend
ps. well done kyala for having the chat
so i aint a demon if i decide i dont want him there for birth i just wanna concentrate on me and baby and he aint been there for me so he dont deserve to be there
