@Megsarama26 so very glad to hear you are dealing well, you definitely have a few good spirits looking down on you and plenty of us sending positives vibes your way. Positivity does amazing things.
Yay Megsarama! Although those three hour wake-ups must be wearing thin So very pleased to hear those odds are improving, I have a really good feeling that your story is going to have a beautiful ending
Flower - thinking of you too and hoping all is well with your little family
To all those finishing work - I'm so jealous! I have 10 weeks to go, it feels like forever! I spend all day trying not to hurl, today I gave up, came home and slept on the couch with the dogs.
Had a know-it-all colleague start lecturing me about parents being over protective, not exposing children to allergens and the consequential rise in chlidren's allergies ... nothing like a bit of parent blaming to brighten the day ... so I told her we were going to use the dogs' bed for a bassinet and peanut butter for nipple cream...
It is pretty tiring, mainly because of spending all day in the nursery then having to do tasks at home in the evening. And the worrying! @megsarama they have me expressing 3 hourly during the day but only twice at night at 2 and 6. So you get a bit of sleep which is nice.
@emski72 that's such a good idea!
Yay to all those who are finishing work soon! I still have 5 weeks to go.
@Megsarama26 you are incredible! Love that those babies are still holding in there. Believing that they will stay even longer now - clearly nothing is impossible!
Flower so glad to hear your little Miles is doing well. Thinking of you!
@Wishnhope I totally hear you about the sleep. It's frustrating me the lack of sleep I'm already getting. I'm getting nervous too!
AFM - I'm 32 weeks and had my ob appointment yesterday. Turns out baby is head down and ready to come out and the period type pain I've been getting every afternoon is small contractions/Braxton pains. Been advised to start taking it a bit easier during the day!
Baby feels so heavy pushing down like it is. Anyone else experiencing that?
So good hearing how much closer everyone is getting. Not long now!
I have another 2 weeks to my next midwife appt.. but am sure I have been getting movements that feel like the head is definitely moving down and engaging.
Dr's tomorrow for my flu shot!!! Hoping he can give me something for the dermatitis i have developed under my nose from my sinuses being horrid!!!
Form in to work also to have the friday off before my babyshower!!! Invites are being posted today!!!
Megs & Flower glad to hear you're both doing well!
I'm getting a pedicure at the moment and it is heaven! I've had an awful cold & throat infection this week so figure I needed a cheer me up treat :-)
Go Meg's!!!! So happy for you!
Enjoy your pamper time mrs hopeful! Good on you @hopeforlife my bubs is head down but not engaged, but I have been getting period type pains too only once or twice a day and don't last too long so I wasn't to worried.
Im so glad Miles is doing well flower.
Afm I had a mw app yesterday and asked when I should have the whooping cough vac, while still preggers or after and they said you don't need it because it's the end of season...? Thought that was weird... Also I'm starting to freak out a bit, I feel really unorganized or something? Maybe just nerves I should have the rest of my things in the next few weeks and bags packed so hopefully that makes me feel better.... Probably part of my problem is that my parents are off to Vietnam tomorrow for 2 weeks and they are the only other people who run the motel so if I went into labour in that time, dh would have to stay at the motel while I went alone.
Re Whooping cough, DH is getting it this arvo and I will be asking the same question, regarding now or after bubs is born. Will report back.
Since I am no longer working I can start up my sewing again!! (Sorry the photos are so large)
