At ast you woke up with snoring not contractions TTid!! Hope that baby stays put for you until you're ready!
Tried a new approach this morning but still managed to have a ridiculous row with hubby. We have agreed that we need to talk tonight - long overdue! The last 6 months have really taken their toll on our relationship and we need to start communicating a whole lot better and being much nicer to each other. New job was the first step but we also need to break bad habits that have crept in caused by the stress and frustration.
RF you are both awesome and mad at the same time! Good on you for entering!! Like Ttid I laughed at the idea of doing the strathpuffer and then a marathon as a training run!! Im still doing my hour walk most days but can feel hints of SPD creeping in so not sure how much longer it will last. Started at 30 weeks last time but usually starts earlier in subsequent pregnancies.
Oh and re. the button - hubby had to come in very shame-faced last night and ask could I please move it back again as his trousers had stretched a bit that day and now they were too loose (new work trousers). There will be no more sewing alterations!!!
I would say having a wibble now its all becoming real is very understandable Caro. Have you got anyone with a god listening ear to plan a lunch date with on Monday (or will that not work with school holidays - ok maybe a playdate!). Sounds lie you are making the best decision for you re. wigs etc, And very sweet of M to get a buff to keep you company. It sounds like she is taking it in her stride so far.
Hubby starts new job today so fingers crossed its all going well. It has totally upset my morning routine as never had him getting ready to go at the same time as I am getting Matilda ready to go - I was a grumpy cow this morning so will need to apologise and find a way to accommodate each other so we don't start every day bickering!! He asked me to sew a button on his trousers this morning - doesn't he realise I have everything planned down to the last minute in the morning grrrrr!!
Had a meeting with 2 people from my team yesterday - 7 hours driving plus 4 hour planning meeting = long day!! Our manager couldn't give us details but reading through the lines I think our CEO is about to get sacked for gross misconduct - yikes!!! We are a very small organisation so this will have a massive impact. She said to 'hold on tight its going to be a bumpy ride...'
Oh Janie that is a nightmare and how cruel (and cowardly) for them to send you a letter and basically run away leaving you to stress over it over the holidays. When are you due to go back? I was very impressed with your determination and professional approach to dealing with your horrible nursery situation - sounds like this needs more of the same. Sending you some hugs - and hope you get to catch up with Caro!
Hubby is starting work in his new job on Wednesday. He has a months notice to work at his old place but as he was only getting 2 shifts a week hes able to do them Fri and Sat and start the other job straight away. He's so happy, it really is great!
M is not well today, very lethargic after daycare. She didn't seem herself when I picked her up and am a bit sad that possibly no one noticed (they may have and I just didn't see them when I collected her but no one commented). Anyway doubt she will be at daycare tomorrow but hubby will have to deal with it as I'm up in Hamilton for a meeting for the day 3.5 hours each way!! Will be knackered afterwards but I've got a new audio book so am looking forward to the peace and quiet and also meeting up with my 2 favourite colleagues for a planning afternoon - yay!
Looks like a fair bit of impending house moving or wanting to move going on. Once hubby has completed his probation period we are hoping to start looking - dying to have our own place!
Oh and I think today we arrived at the 'why' stage - deep breath........
Ttid and Sonya I understand your worries - my mum will def come up but she's 3 hours away. I have plenty of friends who'd happily help but my concern is if I go overdue many/most will be away for Christmas.
Hugs to you both, life is stressful enough at times without adding late pregnancy into the mix!! I am so relieved that hubby's job seems sorted now as I didn't fancy the current scenario with hating job, juggling evening shifts etc when this baby comes.
Right hubby and Matilda cooking pancakes - would be rude not to sample!!
