    Measurements mean nothing !
    With my last baby I measured exactly until 40 weeks when I suddenly measured 45 !

    I’m in and out the hospital due to reduced movements. They’re very quiet which is rather irritating. I’ve also had a headache for days and seeing flashing lights, luckily my blood pressure is good.

    I've not had my bump measured so it's obviously not that big a deal!

    I got a growth scan but not because of anything bump related, the growth scan was booked since my booking appointment!

    They probably don’t need to measure you then if you’ve had a growth scan and that’s why they haven’t done it x

    Therefore ur MD wouldnt do a manual growth measurements regardless if its related or not coz u will have ur notes with ur file which is checked by the hospital and MD wen u attend thats wat i was told

    Yeah they dnt do it manually if u have growth scan i was abit concerned lol as with all my previous pregnancies i was measured every time i attended the MD appointments and i know pregnant women get measured by MD just for reassurance
    I called my MD yesterday and she sed they dnt do it if u get or have had a growth scan, which makes sense

    Anyways enough of that as long as everyones okay :)

    I’ve not got any holidays left to book between now and Mat leave because I’ve saved them up so I can take them before the baby arrives. I’m on countdown to finishing though. 6 weeks today I’ll be sat at home relaxing instead of being at work. I’m already getting into the mindset of ‘oh well that won’t be my problem soon...’ oops! Haha

    six weeks today I’ll be holding two baby boys !
    Not long to go now at all.
    I’ve not worked since having my second but we’ll see what happens in the future as I want to re train :)
    Our half term is a week later than normal so still two weeks at school. Not complaining though as it means after half term it won’t be long until baby day x

    Well I’m seeing the consultant on 11th November to get the go ahead for the planned section. I’ll be 34 weeks then. I’ve been told to expect them to arrange my pre-op around 36 weeks or after. Not sure when they’ll give me a definitive date. I’ll be 39 weeks on 12th December but I’m kinda hoping I get Friday 13th as my section date as I can’t imagine many wanting that date! I’m fully aware I won’t get a choice with the date but I’ll certainly ask for it or say it is preferred if possible. On 13th december it would have been my auntie’s bday who was like a 2nd mum to me and helped to bring me up. She sadly passed away aged just 56 when I was 14. It would be lovely for our baby to share her birthday with her. We also found out we were pregnant on 13th April this year and in 2012 we got the keys to our first house on 13th december. I definitely feel like it’s a ‘sign’ but what will he will be with the date.

    How come you’re being induced @Baby Ali ? X

    Am geting induced due to having gestational diabetes
    I had gestational diabetes with my previous pregnancy and i was induced a week b4 but it didnt work lol he was born on his due date after having the drip and lots more of other things
