Ttid (()). I was awake at 3am last night too, with dodgy aches and wondering what on earth we would do if I went into labour right now! We are relying on my sister for looking after the girls but she just had an operation and is out of action for at least another two weeks (I've even looking after her as her boyfriend is useless!). But I am very lucky to have her nearby and willing to help. I do feel for you with no family over there and so much going on. Hope it all works out and you're in happy bubble of new baby soon then it will all seem worth it
Turbotid- forgot to say, a good friend of mine has two young boys and just gave birth last night to no.3 - a baby girl! Think she's in shock! So it is possible to have a different sex after two the same! (still think I'm having a girl though)
and Rosie passed her peanut challenge yesterday! 4 hours well spent in hospital, wasn't too bad as all she had to do was eat the peanut cookies I'd made (dr provided recipe, they're really yummy!) and then be monitored for 3 hrs. Lots to play with so was ok and well worth it to have no reaction at all. She had a peanut butter sandwich for lunch today! Girl loves the stuff! Don't know what the reaction was about last year then... she is a very rashy child do maybe was unrelated or she's grown out of it.
right, back to watching brave with Maggie. Tired after a sweaty morning at Wisley where I was made to play tag with my two for quite some time! Needed our giant ice creams after that!
It was so mega cheesy was almost good though! Rod Stewart really has lost his voice hasn't he.
caro- great to hear you're getting somewhere with the nhs system! Obviously shame if holiday put on hold. Pictures of Matilda's birthday look lovely, agree that strawberry cake looked scrummy!
hoggle - good news about the scan even if sex has changed! What is your due date? Loving all your talk and photos of snow! Still very humid and hot down in southeast England but other than swollen feet I'm loving it! Better than a wet summer any day
thanks for reassurance over c-sections. JT , forgot you had a breech third time round, so you survived having three kids and being post section? I'm so concerned about not being able to do much, lift baby etc, and having to get relatives to stay!! And turbotid forgot you're soon to have a section too! Scan not til next week so will wait and see but hubby is very against me asking for a breech birth so I may not have many options. don't want to try the external turning thing but considering moxibustion if anyone tried it?!
i would be the same about tube tying turbo, don't think it matters what age or how many kids you have it is a big decision.
House selling etc still in limbo. Possible that landlord will remortgage this place and let us stay on renting. If he does then we could just stop trying to sell our flat and keep renting it tout. Does mean we lose all the money we've put into trying to sell flat and are back to where we were, ie. in a house we don't like much with the hassle of renting a flat and paying huge tax bills, but is better than having to move. I have seen a house to rent just up the road though which Im going to look at today. Could squeeze in a quick move before baby comes....
Welcome and congrats to flipflop! I'm nearly 8months pregnant with no.3, did continue running but had to shorten distances due to pelvic girdle pain, I'm now just feeling too heavy (and hot!) so only doing a bit of bootcamp for core strength, although still intending to go swimming..!
I have been confirmed as big by the midwife, but not enough to worry them (except worries me who doesn't think my stomach can stretch any further!) and very frustratingly she thinks baby is breech. I think shes right as baby feels v different from last time. So I'm booked in for a scan in a week to have a look. Fingers crossed it has moved as last thing we need right now is a c-section. House buying/selling still all up in the air...
Enjoying being in my air conditioned lab today, was getting mighty hot down in surrey last week! I was very grumpy with the girls on several occasions just because I was too hot, and had my first experience of hugely swollen feet/legs! Not that I had time to rest them, especially with hubby at the cricket all yesterday too. Anyway, not moaning really as I do love the hotter weather!
Pip - well done on park run! Was it the Lambeth 'county' show?! I remember it well Was down your way meeting old nct friends in wimb park. Went to the water park bit and of course it was chaos, really struggled to keep track of the girls. Think it was you asking about mortgages and mat leave? New regs mean everything is much harder but if you're already got a return date set and then will have full pay it shouldn't be a problem, will probably involve extra phone calls. We pushed our recent mortgage app through just before I had officially told the uni I was pregnant. Bit cheeky but saved a lot of hassle (although was still a huge palaver about my fixed term contract - like they had never heard of one before?!).
Camlo- wow to 13miles! In what I assume was hot conditions! Hoped it helped with the black clouds.
Ikkle- well done to you too, nothing to be sad about surely. Can't wait to say I've done a run of even one mile again!
Caro - hope things are getting sorted by now. Must be so, so frustrating not to be able to make plans. Well done on the bike rides though
Right, best go do some work while I'm still being paid Have to take yet another day off this week (for Rosie's peanut challenge- hours of sitting in hospital with a 21/2 yr old - joy), so that makes it only 8 days left til I leave for ever. eek!
Been thinking just the same Ttid, why do these things happen when having a baby! Or is it bound to happen if you have enough . Hope your house build is going ok? My hubby definitely isn't keen on the mum bus! Funny how I was allowed to buy this one in my name and he owned his flashy estate
Olympic distance tri is 1500 swim, 40km cycle and 10k run. Tough cookie distance!
