I just thught I'd see if anyone was still checking in here...? We are all rapidly approaching our due date and thought it would be nice to reconnect.
Lots of love
Yay - I'm not alone! I am doing really well. Still got 6 weeks at work, which is fine by me as I love my job and not too huge yet so it's easy enough to get around. You must be so excited to finish up though
This week my sleep has been a bit disturned - apparently it's our bodies preparing us for sleepless nights! Personally I'd prefer to stoc up on sleep now but c'est la vie!
Do you know what you are having? How is the bursery coming along etc?
Yes, not getting enough sleep! I'm thinking of getting a dreamgenii body pillow, which you can use afterwards for supporting baby whilst breastfeeding - have you tried anything like that??
We don't know what we are having as the baby's cord was between its legs at the 20 week scan - shy like its daddy he says!! Hubby was keen to know what he was letting himself in for, but it will be a nice suprise now! Did you say previously you are having a boy?
We've been buying loads of stuff for the nursery, but can't decorate yet until the bathroom is finished - so it will be another job for mat leave! I love my job (speech and lang therapist) too, but I'm feeling under pressure to get everything finished and I also have a masters assignment to be in for Monday (last one for a year!!). What do you do?
I have a 5ft body pillow - long sausage like thing and it's fabulous! It props up the bump, supports my knees and generally helps me sleep
We are having a boy... I was so convinced it was a girl that I'm glad I know or the poor thing would be in pink! It must be so exciting thought - not knowing - in a way I wish we had the surprise but I'm not sorry we know. Do you get another scan? My hospital do one at 34 weeks so I get to see him again in 2 weeks!
Your job sounds interesting - I work in PR for a cosmetics company and I love it I work on a global basis so get to travel a but which is a lot of fun, but even my day to day job is fun
Are you doing ante-natal classes? Mine start next week with the NCT - i am actually looking forward to them! They do meet ups too so I get to meet other mummies-to-be in th area. Where do you live Lu?
Our nusery is getting there but I still have a head full of things that we don't have - moses babsket, nursing nighties, maternity pads etc - God it's glamourous!
Hello, I still look in every now and then. Glad to hear you ladies are doing fine! Ive got 3 weeks to go at work I finish 20th July and baby due 9 th august. Can't wait to finish, Im just so tired by lunchtime. Im a special needs teacher so can't just have a quiet afternoon ha ha. Both your jobs sound interesting! I like my job but am looking forward to some time off and hoping to take 12 months off. We've been trying to pay overdrafts etc off so hopefully should manage!
Good luck with your antenatal classes. We started ours on Tuesday and it was better than I thought! Take care ladies we've not long left now, can't believe how quick the time has flown! x
Hello! Yes it late to finish but as a teacher and all our school we don't have annual leave to tag onto to mat leave. Also if I go right to the end of term I can put 6th Aug as my official start of mat leave so it gets me a few extra weeks of pay. Im planning to take 11 months off and go back the beg of July so will only have to work a couple af weeks then its the 6 weeks hols! I am getting tired but starting to wind down ( although don't tell my boss that ha ha)
Aw its nice washing all the little clothes isn't it! Glad you enjoyed antenatal, i find it odd as well seeing my OH in that situation its just not him although he thinks its ok and finding it interesting! Think its panicing him as well ha ha x take care enjoy your time off when it comes x
That was meant to say all our schools holidays!
