    Waters intact, still contracting but they're luckily not doing anything. Just had pethadine in the hope that I can sleep 10 hours of tightening and I got desperate.

    Great, thank you Phoenix. And do you think the newborn ones will give me a good idea of which first size ones to buy, or I'd be next hiring a first size set after the newborn set? Xx

    How are you Elf's Mummy?

    I'm finishing on 24th June as taking 3.5 weeks hol and then 4 days mat leave before due date.
    I'm counting down already :)

    I've got really bad swollen ankles today, came out of no-where.
    Any suggestions to ease?
    Can't wait for the warmer weather so I can wear flip flops xx

    Same. I had it with both my other pregnancies. 99% chance of getting it again. I was induced with my daughter at 35w6d and she was born the following day via cesarean. I was determined to carry my son longer, and he made it to 37w5d. I badly wanted to VBAC but nothing I did got me to dilate. Not even to 1. So, I could not be induced.

    I would really like to go to 38-39 weeks this time. I am even considering pushing to go as long as all my blood work/scans/NSTs are normal, but it can change so quickly that I don't think any of my doctors would let me go past 39 weeks. So, I am REALLY hoping to dilate this time. My doctor will let me VBA2C if I can. However, they have all of the policies in place to provide a "gentle" cesarean, which I had with my son, and I am really okay with that, as well.

    Of course, if I am lucky and I don't get it this time, I will carry all the way! It's just so unlikely.

    Quick update I've been transferred to st helier as they are better equipped at dealing with threatened pre term labour they've decided that though my cervix is shut I'm still contracting so they need to find out why. I'll be having an Mri tomorrow to see if it's my appendix grumbling. I'll read through later when they've given me drugs xxx

    @Phoenix and Unicorn, i plan to work from home from 1st July onwards, i will already have handed over so will just be checking the work of my interim and helping them out so i wont really be working working lol. right now i come into the office 3x a week. haha! Phoenix i c ant believe you took your leave so early! that's so cool! how long is your leave though? mine is only 6months so every second counts.

    @Unicorn i will become so impatient if your baby arrives early! 82 days to go! just cant wait!

    @Phoenix, a washing up bowl is such a great idea for the baby! oh my gosh! i didnt think of that! my bathroom is also really tiny, thank you for the tip! i think i will do the same, planning to move houses sometime this year so can buy a baby bath when we move.

    You guys are all sooo organised! i will get there in the end i guess.

    Maternity leave here is 9 months but tbh I'm not sure I'll be going back afterwards if I can avoid it.

    I think once he outgrows the newborn ones at 12lb the birth-potty size should be fine, but not too sure.

    I have mostly newborn (up to 12lb) and then the rest are "birth to potty" I only have a few 'first size' (7-18lb) nappies.

    Why would you think that NBkm3? I think people mostly use this thread to update and only really reply to each other if someone has answered a direct question so I wouldn't worry about people not entering into conversation, I think everyone is just a bit busy!

    Don't worry Purple, I'm planning on holding on to him for as long as possible, I'm more than happy to go after you ;-)

    I'm good thank you Ttc, spent all day yesterday at a spa with a friend, made myself sick by swimming after lunch but had a back massage and pedicure which was fab! We've got friends visiting and we'll be going out for lunch with them today and then tomorrow I'm going to pack my hospital bag and we've got NCT, which I am really enjoying and looking forward to :)
    I'm still trying to get the balance of doing nice things we won't be able to do when the baby arrives and taking it easy, don't feel like I've got there yet as I feel pretty overwhelmed with everything some of the time. How's everyone else doing? Xx

    argh! I think being in the 30's makes it so much more real! Lol

    No plans for us really. Bit of diy probably and sorting the house out, we've only lived here since august and already accumulated so much crap lol xx
