I had no idea either time and don't his time either, I was really sick with t, very little with n and none with this one which makes me think poss girl but who knows, t who was right from the start with n thinks this is a girl but could just be lucky guess. I swing from wanting a girl to a boy on a weekly basis.

In other news, I decided to bite the bullet and ask both my sisters if they were considering the only name we have on our shortlist. Youngest sister who is due next week and who I thought wouldn't have chosen the same did say it was on their shortlist until her Dh's work colleague used it so now def off. Other sister due March, has assured me that they aren't interested in it. So if we have a girl, we have one name... Yay!

I stupidly sent off my prescription exception certificate without a stamp, doh. Has any one done this, have left a message for mw asking for another one...

It might get there anyway, t&n'sm. I've done that with less important letters, never anything crucial but they've always arrived. The post office just charge the recipient for delivery, like a reverse charges phone call. And yay for girls' names! DH came up with an idea out of the blue the other day which has gone straight to the top of our list - I'm amazed as he never makes suggestions, and relieved as I was beginning to feel unsure about our previous first choice.

The past few days I've had relentless BH, at least one every 15 to 20 mins. With Iz I only had them for the last week or two before going into labour. I'm thinking it might be stress related - I did two solo trips to hospital with Iz this week, 1.5 hours each way on busy commuter trains, and will have to take him in again for his surgery on Weds. Have been very tearful too. Could do without a houseful of builders, though it will be nice to have the k-room finished before the baby gets here.

Lily - I have had lots this time (although also with J) - make sure you are staying hydrated - it helps a bit. I have been joking that I am only getting them when I over do it... like by standing for more than 5 minutes...

I (think) I have done my last bit of work before baby comes... have been off the regular job since Dec 12, but was still face painting here and there (without taking new bookings) - last party booked was today. :)

(you can peek at my work here if you like :) - Create A Face NL the tiger with the red and the little guy with the snowman are J)

Of course that means it is time to get ready for little man. Not quite 31 weeks and yet I have my list for my hospital bag printed. I am either cracked or trying to avoid doing my tax return... with J arriving at 36 I can't help but countdown to that, but I can't imagine how whiny I will be if this guy decides he wants to be full term or past due date! :)

Not long to go then vc! Yes I have found all sorts to do instead of tax return...

I am feeling meh at the moment, not exactly sure why just can't summon the energy to do much and have definitely lost my mojo for making jewellery. Gah, tried some extra iron today so hoping that will help. Hope everyone else is better?

I have lost it. I have a nesting problem. I have spent the morning antibacterial-wiping each individual slat of the nine wooden blinds in our house. I have spent B's two nursery days this week decorating baby's nursery and putting his furniture together. I am supposed to be 'taking it easy' and DH said earlier 'I was going to offer to take B to soft play so you can rest but you're going to have to come with us because otherwise you're going to clean, aren't you?' :D

Send help! I need committing!

Oh dear ph, step away from the wipes and SIT DOWN! Preferably with your feet up and a cup of whatever you like to drink...

Do you have a date yet?

Bah I know I shouldn't complain and feel so lucky but I am officially fed up with pregnancy. The back ache, the bum ache, the SPD, the heartburn.....even feeling him move inside is painful because he gets in some lovely positions for awkwardness. I am fed up of losing sleep and desperately want to find a comfy position to sit/lay in. These 10 weeks are going to drag big time....and I feel selfish for moaning about it. Especially when I hear about those desperate to be pregnant. *sigh*

Don't feel bad for whining a bit CC! I'm only 19 weeks and already uncomfortable much of the time and having trouble sleeping, so I can't imagine how the next 21 weeks will be. I think we all get a bit fed up with it at times!

I've been burying my head for the last week, but think this week is going to be a little harder. We had the Harmony blood test last Monday, 2 week wait, hoping it might be Friday but that is optimistic, maybe a week on Monday or even Tuesday. This week feels longer as it is the countdown! I'm just not thinking beyond that at the moment.

Hugs yp. Go easy on yourself this week (( ))

No idea RR - tonic water? Or have I dreamt that??

And moan away cc - I feel all of those pains. Apologies forvtmi, but I haven't had a proper poo since last Sunday when I had d&v :( I've had one tiny movement on Friday, but that's it. Taking lactulose but it makes me feel lousy if I take too much. Am supposed to be taking iron supplements too but just can't - I'd never go!! I'm sure you can imagine this is not great for the piles situation... I just want to poo... :(

RedRum - bananas (potassium) for cramp? I think!

nearlymum - you're probably already on to it, but dried apricots should help your iron and other problem!
