Actually, they have a genuine reason for wanting to come earlier, so I cant really say anything to them. FIL has recently joined a new job as professor, and wont get too many leaves. His current semester ends nov mid, and new semester starts jan mid, so they want to utilise that time, which is understandable.
I am hoping their visa takes time to come, so that they come a bit late. I just want to be able to celebrate our first wedding anniversary just between the two of us, and its on 9 dec. so, i am hoping and praying they come after that.

Hi girls, still here, pains subsided! Not fun, I kinda get excited they are going to turn into something and then disappear but could still be a sign that it isn't too far away (fx crossed anyway).
MCB sorry to here they terminated your contract early.
MID it might be different this time with the inn laws, well positive thinking for you. Be nice to have someone to clean and wash for you.
No other news with me.....ill let you know when there is.
Dying to hear MissX labour story, hope everything is going well for her.
Rainbow, I thought you'd grab some of those MCNs!

I don't know how I did it, they were sold out pretty quickly. Lucky timing I guess!
MCB - that sucks about your contract
AFM- I saw the obstetrician on Thursday and did the GCT too. All was good with baby, my fundal height was 29cm and I was 28+2 so that was good. Hb was fine, but she couldn't hold it long as he was hiding from here.
No protein in my urine and my BP was fine so that's great, means zero signs of preeclampsia at this stage. She referred me for a 30 week growth scan because it's standard if you've had a 24 week one, so that's good. And he was head down so I hope he stays that we - he has been head down since 20 weeks.
But now I'm waiting to hear (or hopefully not hear) from the hospital as I was told they'd call if there is a problem, most likely by Monday. So holding my breath, hoping that there's no news but I probably won't relax til Wednesday!
If my sugars were high I'll have to do the 3 hr GTT. If my haemoglobin is low ill have to have iron supps.
Less worried about that, just want my BSLs to be fine.

Michelle that sucks about your contract! Yay for nearing the start of third trimester.
Waiting hope you feel better soon.
MiD hope you can do nursery soon. Sucks about in-laws. Just tell them you need lots of rest and go to bed with a good book.

Ah bummer MsFaery!!! I dont think it will be long now though for you... sounds like your body is gearing up now!
Rainbow - glad to hear your results have come back ok
MID - Frustrating about your ILs, hope they wont be too annoying and you can get some time out
Arrgh what a morning, sorry need to vent! I applied for parenting payment over a month ago cos Im hardly working anymore (1 day per week) as my teaching contract finished, so Im only on call. Its taken 6 weeks to get any info from C/Link, and today I received 5 letters - some saying it had been approved, some saying it had been cut off (WTF??!!) So 2 hours on the phone later........ even though we are earning the same as we were 4 years ago when I had DD (in fact, I will earn LESS this financial year than I did when I ceased work with her) we are only eligible for under 1/2 of what we used to receive. Dont get me wrong, Im grateful for being eligible for anything but it seems strange that even though costs have risen, our income hasnt yet we are eligible for LESS? Only working 1 day per week cuts me off from payments. And DH is FAR from a high earner.. earns very little. I just dont get it I know we can do it, as we are very good at living on very little cos we did while I wasnt working with DD, its just so frustrating that its going to be even less now but more mouths to feed...not at all what I expected. I may not even be eligible for the paid maternity leave scheme
Anyway, on a brighter note we finally moved the stuff in to the babys room yesterday. Its not set up properly yet but DD and I started sorting through some clothes. She was so excited. Washed some of them and put them out to get some sun (particularly all the whites) - its quite surreal seeing baby clothes back on the washing line again! going to scrub the pram(s) today (one Im keeping, one is being sold) while we have nice weather.

Anyone else have or had a chronic hiccuper? I fear I'm going to have a guzzler on the outside!!!
Waiting - I can't believe you're next in line after MissF!!!
And then me
