Could be me! I'm due before you but that doesn't mean much hehe.
Can't believe its only 13.5 weeks give or take until I meet our little one. Starting to get a bit real!
SageS - I think if I had to unexpectedly go on maternity leave early, my work would just sign me off on sick leave because I'm due to go on maternity leave at the end of the week *chuckle*. My only suggestiong would be to get as much out of the way as you can but leave some sort of instructions in case you have to leave early. It won't be perfect but at least people will have some idea rather than none at all if you can leave some kind of instruction.
MissFaery - Your 12 week scan isn't far off now It seems that those first few weeks both drag and speed past. I remember looking at my calander and thinking "Wow, I have SO long to go to my 12 week scan!" and then bam, there it was.
MyLittleStar - It sounds like you're coping well with the suprise entry of Max! I've been told neck pain is pretty common, can't really suggest anything for that apart from lots of massages *chuckle*. Would love to see some pictures of your little man when you get the chance. Gentle nudge? Lol. I think I'm next due but no doubt there'll be someone that has an early arrival in between now and then. I just hope it's not me! Lol. Of course we all want our bubs to be born when they're ready for their best chances so I'm hoping bub is just as comfortable as DS was. He was 2 weeks overbaked lol.
LilPetal - Selling your house must be scary. We realised we were going to have to find a new home when I was pregnant with DS (probably at about the same stage as you actually). Different story, we were renting. But we didn't find out we'd been approved for a house until the day after DS was born and it was SO stressful Do you have somewhere to stay for a bit if you can't find a house that you like in time?
MickeyMouse84 - 13.5 weeks is not long at all. It spins me out that so many people in this thread are getting so close to having their bubs
Hello to anyone I missed too!
AFM - Suddenly seeing my ticker saying "6 weeks..." has spun me out a little. And I guess hearing about little Max making his way into the world early has put the wind up me a bit *chuckle*.
I went into the nursery last night to 'organise' (ie. go all nest-y lol) and found that there was nothing really that I could do! Everything is pretty much ready to go apart from putting my clothes in my suitcase and I can't really do that until I'm a bit closer as I need to be able to wear most of the clothes that I want to pack.
So instead I'm sitting here twiddling my thumbs with only one week of work left to go before I'm on maternity leave.
I'm going to HAVE to find something to do when I'm on leave. I'm going to go insane sitting around waiting for the 28th of March!
This time I am buying a change table and a breast feeding pillow. Which I never had for DS but will make things much easier and more comfortable. Also some swaddle
wraps so I don't have to struggle with sheets.
A sling/carrier and some type of self swinging chair are also great for getting jobs done and freeing up your hands! My son could hardly be put down for first few months!
afm- feel like a zombie today as DS randomly woke up at 9.30 last night and refused to go back to sleep until gone midnight! I tried everything, in the end at 11.30 just gave up and had to let him cry which I've only done twice in his life. Hate it! But I had tried literally all the soft options to no avail. And he only slept an extra hour this morning to make up for it! Remind me why I'm having another? lol
Also keep trying to decide if what I'm feeling is wind or bub moving. 15 wks now and felt DS at 18 wks so could be possible!
