*** Tuesday 3rd Tri ***
Daisy - happy due date for yesterday, hope you get your sweep today and that it kicks things off.
BG - glad to hear you're nearly sorted - but what will you do with yourself for the last few weeks I'm much the same though, I'd like to be sorted by 37 weeks 'just in case' - even though I'm quite convinced I'm going to go way over.
Noggin - lovely idea to hide things in A's desk! What did you get in the end? 10 days over 3 weeks is excellent, lucky you!
JT - happy birthday for Saturday! I'd start washing if I were you - I thought it was too early as well but have been told just to get on with it so started over the weekend - I'm a few days behind you.
Popcorn - glad the kidney-type pain wore off. How did you NCT class go? We had our first one last week, we didn't learn anything (we've been doing other prep like hypnobirthing so already learned a lot) but the people seemed nice and the main reason we signed up for them was to try and make local friends with babies due around the same time!
MrsB - yuk, hope the dog is better now (for your sake as well as his/hers!) Enjoy your Cornish holiday!
LP - loving the final countdown singing! Woohooo for reduced working hours as well! When do you completely finish? Nursery flashes needed at the weekend!
Sam - I know what you mean about the sudden realisation. I went to a local homebirth group meeting recently and I was the only one there without a child - it was mayhem and I just thought 'this will be my life soon - argh!'
TT - what kind of thing did they cover at parenting class? What a great idea - the focus always seems to be on the antenatal side, the pregnancy, labour and birth - but then what?! My family laugh at me and say I wont know what to do with a baby that doesn't have 4 legs and live in a field, but I think they might be right!
MS - so glad everything is ok, this pregnancy lark is so stressful!
IDC - happy baby week! When are you due?
AFM - survived work yesterday but was in a lot of pain - in fact, pregnancy hormones got the better of me and I cried most of the drive home, wondering how I will cope for the time I have left. I've decided just to focus on the next 2 weeks and if I need to leave earlier than planned, I will - I want to make it through til the end of August though as my M/L cover starts next week so I need to be able to hand over.
In brighter news though, we almost finished the nursery last week! It still needs a blind, curtains, some wall decorations (bunting nearly made and I need to make some wall art) plus I'm not happy with the bookshelf we already owned (it's cheap laminate so I couldn't paint it to match the rest of the furniture) plus the nursery chair hasn't been painted and put in there yet, but the main room is complete.
Some flashes on my blog! http://projectstork.wordpress.com/2013/08/18/project-nursery-nearly-finished/
