Little Ted (05-12-2013)
Aww i think a group squishy hug would be great.
Nomie I hope this dream becomes a reality in the not too distant future, sorry about your poor sister needing more surgery..
Hope the FS was helpful Funchu and that it is not long before you get your BFP would be lovely to your little bub before next xmas.
LT thats great that things are going so well for you this time. Fingers crossed all continues to go well for you.
DH put up the xmas tree yesterday when i told him not to, told him i was not celebrating this year. Since my ***** of a boss couldn't be bothered to arrange other staffing i will be at work all of Christmas for a 3rd year in a row. Am so ****ed off i am the only one who has worked the last 3 yet everyone who works day shifts has been given it off even if they only asked for leave in September i asked last december. The exact wording was that they are my shifts and it is not fair of me to expect others to do my night shifts when they aren't people who like doing nights. Went through one of the other rosters at work for another ward and have noticed the 2 NUMS are both using me as the other NUM has put her most inexperienced RN's on which means not only do i have my ward to run and care for but i have another 2 wards to watch to check these incompetent staff do not kill anyone over the 3 days I am more then ****ed off. Apparently I am meant to be happy by the financial aspect yes i will earn grossly over $3000 for 3 nights work which will be very highly taxed anyway I do not want any of this money regardless of what it is which i keep saying I am the only one who has not spent xmas day in 3 years with their family. Add on the year i was in the UK i spent it in tears as well as i didn't get to be with my family so this is my 4th I do not get to see them, its the 2nd year in a row I will not see my Inlaws even though i promised this year I will. I am meant to be happy with the offer of the week before xmas off I said get stuffed and was asked why i was being this way i asked for leave and she needs staff off that week and wanted me to take it first i again said no there is no point in that. She said you wanted leave you asked for leave and i am offering you leave, mmm excuse me but xmas and the random week before xmas when your whole family including your husband are working full time are not the same am i meant to celebrate that week on my own now since DH won't even be working locally either
Hope everyone else is getting happily prepared for xmas though, sorry don't want to drag anyone else's down.
Sounds like you need a massive group hug Wobbler!
I can't believe even with a year's notice your work didn't give you leave! I would be so ****ed & tempted just to stuff them & call in sick .

Mahoosive hugs Wobbler!
Your boss sounds like a right royal turd!!
So sorry that you're being completely victimised & treated so badly. Roll on maternity leave & kissing her un-sweet ar5e goodbye I say!!
Muse was awesome!!!
I'm feeling pretty deaf and blind right now, and making it through the day is going to be soooo hard. But completely worth it!!
Those guys sure know how to throw one hell of a party!!
If like to announce the safe arrival of Lewis Jack weighing in at 3.6kg and 50cm long on Friday 29 November at 5:50pm
The basic run down on my birth:
Thursday 9pm gel in cervix is still long and tightly shut.
Friday 4:30am second dose of gel as cervix has shortened but still not open
8:00am ob comes to break waters and tells me I'm 1cm. I'm hooked up to the Synto drip and felt great.
8:10am holy crap this hurts
8:30am ok this is bad what do I do - middy suggests heat pack and back massage
9:00am ok this isn't fun anymore how about we just leave the baby in there forever. Middy suggests gas and gives me a form to read for an epidural. Contractions are coming every 35-45 seconds and lasting a minute and sometimes more and sometimes doubling up.
9:30am ok this gas isn't working can someone call he midwife as I've run out if gas. My back is going to break I'm sure of it and I'm starting to lose the plot
10:00am middy says ok at 11am we'll check you. Dh continues heat packs and back massage while I suck that gas back like its going out of fashion. Getting quite high by this stage.
10:30am dh is begging me to have the epidural and I say let's just see cu I think I'm like 8cm dilated
11:00am midwife - you are 2cm dilated. Me - give me the f**king epidural now!!!!!!
11:45am epidural given and I cry and hug my epidural lady and promise to name the baby after her
12:30pm baby gets distressed and drip turned off and ob comes to see me. I'm 3cm he says I must stay on my left side.
1:00pm drip is turned back on
2:00pm baby very distressed again and drip is turned off.
2:30pm ob comes to see me and says I've done a great job I'm at 5cm he's going to start the drip again but he says I need to be prepared for a c section
4:00pm call the midwife in baby is freaking out again and my epi is wearing off. I can feel up to my mid thigh and starting to feel tightenings in my belly
4:30pm ob comes in and says ok I've booked the theatre you are still only 5cm baby isn't happy and you've had a tough slog. He turns the drip off
5:30 comes back and says ok let's have one more look, by jolly gosh your 9 am and I think I can stretch you to 10cm I think I can turn the baby around too as he was prosterior. Reaches on up there turns Lewis stretches me out and says ok give me a push, I can push effectively and then he says well ok then let's have this baby now. 5 pushes later lewis is placed on my chest and I'm in shock!

Great news Disney - so proud of you!!! You did great What a beautiful baby boy. What did you think he was going to be?
I had to laugh about the epidural comment - I had one with my easiest labour (in the end, but also posterior) and yes, you do feel that way about the anaethetist!
