Yay digi! Huge congrats and a great way to start the new thread! grin

Great work on the stats stitch - thank you.

What about a sweepstake on the number of posts we get to before I pop - I'll start the ball rolling with 212

Blackkat Wed 23-Nov-11 16:47:29

digi so so thrilled and hurray for team yellow! Thanks for new thread too.

doo so pleased scannage went well grin

wiw will lay of the pineapple, a timely warning smile

Biscuitsandtea Wed 23-Nov-11 16:52:47

Oooh WIW - love the sweepstake idea - I'm going with 78 posts. So we have:

Biscuits 78
WIW 212

Any others......

I do feel relieved to not be bottom of the list now - thanks Digi - fingers crossed we can welcome Kat across next week to take up that newbie position smile

bigmacandhappymeal Wed 23-Nov-11 18:11:22

Hurrah digi welcome and congratulations on your graduation! Fabulous news and welcome to Team Yellow.... thanks also for the new thread...

Great news doo about the scan - so lovely that you got to see chubby cheeks smile

We've spent the day at the hospital as i woke up this morning puffy and after a trip to the docs had high BP and protein in my wee (I am nothing if not glamorous). However, after 5 hours, it would seem that all is well and i'm back home again. Hospital bag went into the back of the car and car seat was ready in case they induced me. Gulp. I'm going back on Friday for repeat checks.

Ooo sweepstake.... I'm going to go for 171 posts smile

I have left chilled toffee crisps out for everyone. Trust me, they're good.

Blackkat Wed 23-Nov-11 18:37:16

mac sorry to hear you've had such a stressful day but so pleased to hear that all is well and you are back home. Fx for Friday. Mmmmm toffee crisp grin

IzzyWizzyletsgetbusy Wed 23-Nov-11 18:48:40

Marking my place...

bigmac glad everything went well today, hope things settle down for Friday.

wiw I'll be looking out for your news soon...

Bizarre to think I should have a baby by the end of this thread...still doesn't seem possible!!

harassedandherbug Wed 23-Nov-11 19:04:26

Oooh lovely new thread, thanks digi and congratulations on your scan!

izzythat sounds like you're going for a long pregnancy wink

bigmacthought you'd been quiet today lovely. Look after yourself, not long now x

doo ooh they like worrying you don't they?! I get the opposite, the next person that comments on my size is going to get punched...... Very glad all is well, can't believe we're almost there!!!

wiw you'll be just fine without rlt, I didn't take it with L and she was my quickest easiest birth.

News..... well not much! Had a private 1-2-2 ante natal class on Monday evening which was fabulous and well worth the money. She was a mw and used to do aqua bumps, so I know her and was just lovely. High point of the evening was her telling dh what to do if the baby arrives before the mw'...... his face was a picture. Poor thing! On Tuesday the mw brought the home birth box. It's huuuuge and filled with scary looking stuff. I'm all for being prepared, but looked at a couple of things, freaked and put the lid back on! Yesterday was not a good day, but today is fine. Been out for lunch with a friend and just feel loads better.

Minnie74 Wed 23-Nov-11 20:11:52

Thanks digi for the shiny new thread and congrats on the scan.

doo your scan sounds really cute, must have really cheered you up too.

bigmac good luck for the rest of the week, sounds like a scary start to the day but I'm really glad you're ok. Thanks for the toffee crisps too-I'm on a mission to find chocolate which doesn't make me throw up at the moment! I can make myself sick at the drop of a hat now!

harrassed Bit jealous of the home birth box. It wasn't something I ever thought of in the beginning (being a real wuss smile) but now I'm nearing DDay I'm wishing I'd given it a bit more sensible thought. Might have traumatised my cats mind you-not to mention dp!

blackkat i'm joining you on the birthing ball but think I might draw the line at 8 pineapples (even though I do love it I don't think my heartburn would)

Having been a bit nervous of maternity leave I'm already enjoying it! I love sleeping in and my ankles are back to normal! Did some last minute baby shopping today and think I'm now just about sorted-even packed my hospital bag shock Scarily making it all real now though! grin

<wanders off chewing on a chilled toffee crisp>

harassedandherbug Wed 23-Nov-11 20:28:00

minnie originally I wanted to do it purely for practical reasons as due 22nd Dec and dd is 5, so really didn't want dh and I to be vanishing off to hospital on Christmas Eve/Day. But I'm glad we made the decision now. Hoping dd will stay at home with us, but have plans in case she doesn't want to. She said today that she doesn't want my screaming to wake her up...... we have had quite a frank and honest discussion about it!

V jealous of your lie ins......still got to do the school run!

Freezingmyarseoff Wed 23-Nov-11 20:28:01

Hooray for Digi that's great news.
And I'm glad you're reassured now Doo, I was going to say that I had exactly the same thing with DD but have slightly missed the boat now - sorry. FWIW, I'm also going back for another growth scan next after last week's scan. Apparently there is low amnio fluid but not much I can do so I'm taking the calm approach as best I can.

Bigmac sounds like you've had busy day but great you are going home. Good luck for Friday

Ooh, I'm very excited at the prospect of all these imminent births. grin

Waves to all

mmmm toffee crisp - nom nom

dooscooby Thu 24-Nov-11 09:04:32

Fab news on the scan front digi and thanks for starting the lovely new thread.

bigmac sorry you had a scary day yesterday, pleased you got checked out though and youre back home now.

Sorry i was a bit obsessed by the growth scan yesterday, i think a few hrs sitting in the waiting room on my own gave me too much time to worry-thank god for dh and you lot!

harassed only one week until we're fully cooked now-wow, i almost dont believe it but am starting to get excited (plus moments of sheer terror!). I'd refrain from looking in the homebirth kit any more, but im a big wimp with stuff like that! Im feeling nicely protected by the 5 ladies who are fully cooked at the top for now, but ive got a feeling you wont stay up there long so it might be a lonely ride for me- hope it doesnt go too quiet in here over xmas!!

Right, im still lounging in bed and should be at work, like now! Must get cant be arsed now!

wombatinwaiting Thu 24-Nov-11 10:54:00

Love the story of your DH harassed - would have loved to have seen his face. What a good idea to do the 1:1 antenatal class. Thanks for the reassurance on the rlt too.

FWIW minnie - I don't think you're too late to change your mind about a home birth - I have heard of people arranging them a few days before....

Hope you can take it a bit easy today bigmac after yesterday's antics - thinking of you x

So due date is today! Don't feel in the least as if anything is happening and still not too uncomfy so settling in for a bit of a wait. Had a bit of a shock last night as my best friend here had her baby 5 weeks early after severe bleeding and emergency c section. Went to see them with breast pads and nursing bras today as she hadn't got those yet and they were fantastically upbeat if not a little shell-shocked. Baby is in NICU and will be there for a week which is standard practice for early babies here but is doing v well at 5lb6oz. Feels all topsy turvy as I was supposed to be going first!

stitchinline Thu 24-Nov-11 11:38:10

So the gtt is now done - and wasn't that fun! Currently sitting in cafe having hot choc as nearly fainted on way to tube - silly me was in such a hurry to get to work i forgot to eat once it was done. blush

Happy due day wiw

Think I have worked out who popped ( I love that expression) by my amazing powers of deduction so excitedly waiting for confirmation.

Hope everyone else is good today. smile

cep Thu 24-Nov-11 12:29:11

digi great news congratulations.

bigmac sorry things were so stressful yesterday, hope things are ok today.

wiw good luck over next few days hon.

i'm knackered ds2 was cluster feeding till 02:39 this morning, sooo tired, however on a high he latched straight onto my boob without a shield for his last feed. for the whole 20 mins, which is the first time since birth, so yay.

shellshock7 Thu 24-Nov-11 13:21:37

New thread!

Doo fab scan news, hopefully you can relax abut it all now as you say smile

Congrats on the scan digi so happy for you smile

WIW with your latest post I'll go for 183 posts! Glad to hear your friend and her baby are doing well.

I spoke with the MW about the cervical stitch and she said its only a worry if you have had a cone biopsy, not the laser treatment, and I would have been having the stitch a lot earlier. Was glad I rang and she didn't make me feel like I was wasting her time, so thanks for the good advice.
