YAY Lizzy how exciting..............Now im no expert on the "plug" but it has to be otherwise what the hell is it???? :snigger: SO it won't be long im guessing....just looked at my sheet of paper from antenatel and it says that the plug can occur up to 10 days before labour??? so don't rush in hun!!! but if your waters break then at least u know to go straight in eh!!! That's the one I fear I jst don't want to be doing my weekly shop and then waters breaking half way round!!!!

Scottie sorry to hear your sad news and also Lisa and it's always sad when someone passes but on the other hand as you say if they are suffering sometimes its kinder they went as no more pain! someone told me when you hear of a death the next thing you hear is a birth?? lets see if that's true!?

Well my feet are a little better so went to a car boot didn't really get much apart from a few baby books??? then had to go pick up a chest of drawers we won on ebay which is for the baby's clothes as run out of room in the wardrobe!!

Yes I know what you mean poppit some things are good on ebay and I will get rid of my clothes I just sold my fetal monitor for £18 so although I paid £23 still good return as I got it brand new!!
And I do hope not to get post natel too!! That just must be a nightmare!!!

Right im off gonna get ready for x factor again such a thrilling life i lead!!!!!!!!!!!

It's great when peanut does the old disco dancing!!! Mine doesn't as much now but that's prob down to the fact there is not much room left on the dance floor!!!!

Well today is a miserable day as it is pissing down with rain....But I am going to see a friend for coffee and see her baby who is nearly one now so hopefully catch up on some gossip etc

Have a nice day!!!

Good morning everyone,

Sharon, sorry to hear about your swab. It's good that you know about it though. As we were saying last week, it is a great idea to have it done. I sent for mine last week and will mention it at the clinic when I go on Wednesday.

Poppit, Glad you got your water problem sorted out. Is the water still dirty though?

Pammy and Sooz, Hope you have a good day,x

Anyone heard from Lizzie? Sounds quite encouraging the signs she has been having, although what she describes, I had that twice in 2 weeks almost 2 weeks ago but in smaller amounts and checked with my GP and Maternity Unit and they said it was hormonal related.

Not much planned today. Will probably cook today as I don't feel too sick today so far. It is sunny here today too and so if it stays dry, Alfie may be agreeable about going for a walk,x

Hi all ladies

I hope all are fine, I was very busy in the weekend because I and my husband went to shopping for me and my baby and we finished all things except bath for baby , cot and matress, sheet. I am wondering if any one know reasonable prices for cot or crip in any shop? and for matress too?. My husband is very happy because we finished most of shopping and he encourge me to pick up the hospital bags because he worried if the labour will begin and the big is not prepared, oh my poor husband.

Good luck for all ladies

Bloody inland revenue!!!!!!!!!!!! :cross: :cross: :cross: :cross: :cross:

I've been waiting for a tax rebate for months and months and I've just spoken to my accountant and it seems they are nowhere near ready to pay it back so she is putting in a complaint about it.

We could be doing with that money now because we are trying to get things done in the house that obviously cost money. Drives me mad so it does but I'm trying not to get too angry about it.

I'm making the dinner this afternoon. Although I feel sick, I am not worse by what I'm doing so it should be ok. DH wanted me to make a steak and mushroom pie with a herb crust. I think the poor wee soul misses my cooking! :snigger: I suppose he would do really with me cooking almost everyday before.

i agree with you lisa the inland revenue are quick enough to get the money off you and fine you when your tax return is late but giving it back they do take their time. hopefully they'll hurry up for you now.

just swept the passage and shovelled the leaves n crap in the bin-my backs killing me now!! :sadface:

Hi Ladies,
Everyone is sounding far more active than me! what with all your cooking and cleaning and leaf sweeping! :happy: I'm feeling suitably lazy by comparison!

I'm still lounging in my pj's and snoozing on and off! ..trying to catch up on all the sleep I've been missing ..am having less fidgety limbs at night, but (soz if tmi) the piles seem to be causing some blockage and I'm constantly full of wind!!! :O
Had to do a late night run to the shops last night for pessaries and fibogel!!!!! :snigger:

Good job you did that test eh Sharon! It's to be done from 36weeks isnt it? Worth it for the piece of mind.

I'm back on my own again for the next 4 weeks - hubby flew back to Norway yesterday - but then once that's done he's home for a long long while. yay!!

He finished the nursery whilst he was home and we also settled on the name for the wee man ...feels so nice being able to call him by his name now!

hello ladies,

Lisa, I'm still here :hello: been getting weird 'wet' stuff though (tmi). not sure if its my waters......? its very little but its been a couple of times now since yesterday - need to wear panty liner :O Not wanting to rush into hospital cause a) no contractions b) feel like i need a good night sleep c) tomorrow we should have closure on our house sale!!! I want to go into labour knowing its all gone through. I'm a bit of a nervous wreck about it. Had lady garden done today though so good to go from that respect :snigger: Think she took some of the skin off though :sadface:

Sharon sorry about the strep B test. Thats a real bummer that you cant use the pool. Is that cause of the cannula? At least you know though and that is the most important thing right? Babys gonna be looked after. Did you make banana and date cake?

Lisa, bummer about the inland revenue. Poppit is right, they are quick enough to get money from you! X( Hope Alfie took you for a nice walkie :D

Vanessa those piles sound awful X(

Poppit take care of the back

Made chocolate crispie cakes today and ate most of them whilst making them. Oh, and once again packed more boxes.

ooh, Vanessa you just reminded me that I was going to ask you ladies your opinion on our boys names........ really struggling and at the moment its a toss up between Elliot Parkinson or Oliver (olly) Parkinson. We also like Harris and Zac(hary) Parkinson but have reasons why neither might be suitable. Its SO hard!

Vanessa, do we get to hear your little ones name or is it a surprise? GREAT news you got the nursery sorted :thumbsup2:

Heading towards labour AND moving house - Lizzy you are wonderwoman!!!
You must be super organised! :happy:

I'm happy to share name (mentioned it way way back when it was a vague potential name) on here only! (FZ), although Sharon you'll need to keep stchum! :smile: :shush:

Our wee man is definately going to be ..... [zx165] drumroll!

Jowan Alexander Thomson


Jowan is Cornish for John - I'm Cornish and Father in Law is called John
and hubby is an Alexander.

Lizzy, all 4 are fab names ...I think I'm heading towards Oliver - a classic - but what is hubby's name? All would go well with Elizabeth :smile:

wow vanessa, Jowan is a LOVELY name. Not heard that one before. Really nice and very unusual, well perhaps not in Cornwall but from where I am it sure is. Love it! We are also swaying a little more towards Oliver but really only cause we like the idea of being able to abbreviate (I known not everyone likes abbreviations) and Elliot cant really be shortened and also a friend of ours is called Elliot (though im sure he'd be honored)

Hubby is a Robin which is a shame cause I really like it for both boy and girl.

Girl we think Emilie, though maybe Milly :hmm:

Heading for an early night. Exhausted! :yawn:

Glad you're ok, Lizzie, I've been wondering about you all day. I hope that your wee one waits until you get sorted before trying to get out!

All the name talk is good and interesting, I was enjoying that. :D
We have a list of names for both girls and boys (just in case!) and have decided to wait and see how she looks before we give her her name.

We enjoyed our dinner, it was really nice and DH really appreciated it.
Alfie and I went for a walk but my back was really sore so we didn't go too far.
I didn't hear from the accountant again but am hoping I hear something in the next day or two.......bloody inland revenue (again! :snigger:)!

I meant to say earlier, I noticed in the bathroom mirror this morning that my face is darker over my cheeks. I'm thinking it might be chloasma. Is anyone else having this?

V lips are sealed its nice yr not telling the grandparents till baby born!

we have a wee short list

Declan James or Ciaran James other first names Ellis or eoghan . James is a family name but they all go with our surname Baragry i may stick a 2nd middle name in Eric after my dad
my bro calls the baby Horace but thats not on the short list lol

as for girl names its so much more difficult
Ava and Orla on the short list but DH came up with Cara which i really ike may use Erica as a middle name or even a first name but we cant narrow further than that at mo

felt ropey again this afternoon and then had 3 hrs sleep feel better and then had a lovely sausage mash cabbage and onion gravy bloomin lovely

no didnt do the cake today didnt feel like it lol
lizzy if you think water leaking best to get checked out cos of risk of infection but it may be just increased vaginal discharge that can also be quite runny lol

anyway off to turn off heating dh says its like a fridge in here im boiling!

Name talk is good fun eh ...although I was getting a bit stressed that we hadnt settled on a boy one yet!
For a girl it would have been sooo easy - we had decided on that from the very start of our TTC journey - she would've been ....

Lowenna Rose Thomson

Lowenna is another Cornish name, meaning 'joy'
and Rose after my mum Rosemary

Maybe we will be able to use it next time around, God willing!! :happy:

Lizzy, I have a cousin called Robyn - she's very pretty and carries off the name well! :smile:

Lisa, I have a friend who got that 'mask of pregnancy' business ...she gets it back ever so slightly every month now, but you would only notice if you knew about it!
It's strange the things that happen to our bodies during this pregnancy lark eh!

...and I had wondered about the James ...coz Robert is James Robert really isnt he??

Sharon sorry to hear bout test but at least u know eh .....im like you scottie I didn't do one neither!?

Scottie retail therapy sounds gd to me and I did that all last wk then feet swelled up and now find it difficult....but rested today so out shopping tomoz see how it goes!!!

Poppit Ive heard the same about sainsburys, tesco and mothercare they all give you some sort of shopping for a year or something as my friend kept going to the 24 hour tesco to see if her waters broke LOL so looks like we will all be shopping late on eh!! what if we pretend and get some sort of water bag dwn there??? :snigger:

Lisa Inland revenue well they take it very easy but if you wnt money back from them unfortunately takes bloody months!!! Shocking really maybe you should charge them interest for every month they don't pay it like they do????

Vanessa dont worry i had a wk like that where i did nothing but now am trying to get out but then i am sleeping better at night so maybe thats why? ohhh and I like zac and oliver!!!!

Lizzy glad you still with us....now you need to go shopping in asda every day now so you get your vouchers etc :snigger: good luck with the sale!!!

I'm so glad we are not the only one's struggling with girl names....we have a few ideas and then we change our minds again....we are going to see what happens when born but hubbie likes georgina and i like georgia LOL and then i like summer, we had chloe but don't know now!!! for boys it was easy we are calling him freddie george wilson which is because my hubbie is known as fred but actually named alisdair.....basically his mum nicknamed him fred when she didnt have a name then his father being scotish wanted alisdair so named him that but they continued to call him fred!!! his mum died when he was only 18 and he was really close to her and has found it hard to deal with so I decided to call a boy freddie to kind of honour his mum!!!! So now it will be a girl eh!!!!!

well tomorow im going shopping so see what bargains i can find again!!!

ohhh and i now need a new car as my little toyota yaris does not fit the pram in boot!! grrrrrrrr

speak to you all tomoz

Have I missed something here....Sharon, Vanessa, your cousins.....????? ?( I think i twigged you must kinda know you a while back but you REALLY know each other huh? How nice!

Why are girls names the hardest? I love all our boy choices but just never REALLY fell in love with our girls names. There's definitely some very pretty ones but somehow prefer our boys names.

This evening DH just came up with Jasper. I'm kinda drawn to it in a weird way but just think its a name I'd be inclined to call my dog!

Well Sharon, I took your advice and called MW, after another trickle. Shes happy for me to stay at home for the time being (phew cause i'm so tired i'm just not ready to have a night in hospital!). Told me to use a maternity pad and if it continues over night call back in the morning and if they tell me to come in I've to bring my pad. Nice! :O Alternatively, if it turns into a gush to call straight away. Hum, Im thinking discharge not waters ?( but you never know. Last leak was definitely very watery. Im hoping its not wee. How humiliating!

Maybe I should go stand in a supermarket all night :snigger:

Nighty night

you know when you meet /know someone with a name, lets say NEIL. we all form an opinion of that person. i having met severals neils over the years thye do have similar traits.
for that reason (SORRY) i couldnt consider the name james. my ex hubby was james (he was cornish too) :cross: and the children bear his name in their middle names (name grandfather father)
on the other hand ive never met a bad dave lol thats why i married him :snigger:

yes our nearest 24hr tescos is 2min drive from the hospital!!

also in wales we have a saying about the cornish.....they are welshmen that couldnt swim! the language is very similar too except the cornish spell their words more like english as opposed to some weird letters/spellings the welsh use lol

aye, the cornish language and the welsh are quite similar - they come from the same root I think, along with breton french.
morwenna is used in cornwall too!

Hey all

Iv missed a lot in one day.

Lizzy getting very exciting now, I reckon you deffo going to be away before weekend if your not away already :snigger: Im in aberdeen on friday, staying at patio/hilton for anniversary so will be thinking of you lots.

Sharon sorry about strep B, Seems worth getting test done after 2 of you have tested positive, do you just get the kits off internet?

I feel like the luckiest person today, fell asleep at 11 and woke up at 8 thats 9 hours of non stop sleep, Dont know how I managed but long may it continue :snigger:

Loving the name talk, Olly is so cute and Poppit I know what you mean about people with same name seem to have same trait, Every Claire I know is very fat :snigger:

Our tooty is going to be names Tobey Jack Duthie, so long as it does come out a boy :snigger: Got quite used to the name now but not told anyone in family yet, keeping it a secret.

Sorry if Iv missed anyone, think Im still in total shock waking up at 8 womdering where the night went :snigger:

morning

Pammy Im sure it will continue as I have had a few good night sleeps that no need for the afternoon nap!!! although last night was the first night i got up at 3am for a wee but still feel good as got up at 8.45 so all good!!!

Poppit I know what you mean about the name thing i know a few jakes and i used to like that name but the jakes i know are all little shits so can't use that and also I know a couple of milly's and both are like tomboys and i used to consider it a real girly girl name so thats out too!!!! LOL

Right I have no cereal left so going to have to nip to sainsburys as I want some brekkie and have no bread!!! :bawl:

Morning All.

Isn't it funny how we all associate some names with particular traits. Pammy, I know no Tobeys'. I'm sure your LO will set an outstanding president :D

Glad you got more sleep last night Pammy. I got hardly any. My head was all a mush! Late last night we got an email confirming that our house sale has gone through :party: :dancing: Between that and 'have my waters broken, have they not' I just couldn't sleep. Went to bed 10:30, 2am still awake. Did get some sleep, thankfully but not a whole lot.

Called MW again this morning cause Im still getting this trickly thing. MW says sounds like waters but im nervous its just lots of really watery CM!! Got to go in at 11 and get checked. If it is waters they will discuss with me if I want to be induced today or wait and see. Eeek!!! Is my baby on its way....!!! Holy crap! Wish I wasn't so :yawning:

Enjoy breakie Sooz. I just had a nice bowl of fruit and fibre. Hoping it gives me some energy. Maybe I should have gone for the porridge option!

Good morning,

Lizzie, it sounds exciting that this might be it!!!!!

Lucky Pammy getting a sleep like that. I can't remember the last time I slept like that. I think you must have slept for us both last night! :snigger: I had an awful night...... Just when I thought I was getting into a reasonable pattern as well.

My eyes are puffy and I'm knackered this morning. I just got back from the Drs after having my FBC done again. I staggered through the town after, went to Greggs for sandwiches for lunch and then flopped into a taxi and here I am. I'm just having a drink and then going for a lie down for a bit.

Sharon, my LO was quiet yesterday, until last night and then made up for it after that. I felt her move all night. Every time I woke from one of my 10 minute dozes during the night, Alfie was lying sprawled out on our bed and so I kept having to put him back into his bed. I don't know what was up with him last night, he has been great lying in his bed. Maybe he was cold.

Hope everyone else is well and has a good day,x

Hey girls :hello:
loving the baby name talk. Seems like you all have good taste.
Although I'm not from cornwall I really like Jago, a friend of mine called her son that and it really suits him.
Lizzy, I like Oliver too, that's my brother's middle name. it was on our boy's list of names :happy:
We're having to go for an 'international' name, but are keeping schtum til she's here :P

Glad your house sale went thru Lizzy and can't wait to hear more news from you, I'm soooooooooooooooo excited :D

good that you got a good night's sleep finally pammy. I hope your back is feeling better?
I'm sleeping badly cos I've got a stinking blinking cold :sadface: and I hate it when I can't breath through my nose. Was up 3 times in the night too. X(

it's mad that Shar and Vanessa are cousins and carrying at the same time like your mum's did - what a nice coincidence

Sorry to hear about your uncle Scottie. Nice to think that soon a new member of the family will bring comfort :smile:

Hello to everyone else, I'm so tired I can't remember what I read!

I just had a growth scan. Everything looking great. :smile:
She's about 2.5kg (which is 5lb 5oz) and they think she'll be about 3.5kg at birth.
it's starting to look like she's heading head downwards but hasn't made her mind up yet. Gonna get on all fours again in a bit to encourage her some more.
I think I'll give birth to some kind of baby giraffe, her femur length was off the chart :happy:
I've got a lovely 3d pic too.
here she is having a little nap :happy:
Pooch has attached the following file:

I'm back! :snigger: MW doesnt think its babys waters which leaves me embarrassed as to what exactly all that mess is :O Anyhoo, did an exam and I'm 2cm dilated and she said that she really didn't think this baby was far away then gave me a sweep. Which ladies, for all those nervous about a future one being uncomfy for me it wasn't in the slightest. In fact, I couldn't believe she'd done it. Didn't feel a thing! Time to sit tight and wait to see if it works. Going to use it all as a great excuse to do very very little today :snigger:

Pooch, glad the growth scan went well. :thumbsup2: What a cutie you have cooking in your tum. GREAT pic.

Welcome Cheryl biggrin2

ooh Lizzy, how exciting! woohoo I love the idea of you toddling off to Asda and potentially getting a life time of goodies :snigger:
Glad you managed to get a trip to the (lady) gardener in in time too :D

Welcome Cheryl - good to see you here. :D don't worry, our little babies like keeping us on our toes by deciding not to do much wriggling around sometimes. I bet it'll make up for it tomorrow :happy:

Hey, TMI warning (not that we really take much notice of that here! :snigger: ) is everyone else getting lots of discharge?
I'm having to wear a panty liner all the time now. I have a leakage problem when I sneeze or cough anyway (oh the dignity) but sometimes little blobs of discharge come out. It's clear/yellowy and doesn't smell. ?( but liner does get a good dose of it.

I just had a nap and now I feel totally dazed and confused :snigger:

sneezing or a cough.... X( hubby just laughs when i say 'oh dear' coz he know whats happened :snigger: as for the discharge..yeah but no but.
i think the most embarrassing event so far is having a darker bottom sheet on the bed and realising you've left a 'snail trail' :O DH thought it looked like something else :snigger: i said 'no' as we aint dont sincebefore EC so i aint gonna be going elsewhere am i?? :snigger:

im 32wks + now and i can get comfy sitting still...peanuts arse is against my rib cage....any one else like this??

also pooch i was rude earlier that pic is lovely! ishowed it to DH and he thought it was amazing xxxx

lizzy failing asda pop into tescos while you're at it!! (and sainsburys soive been told!!)

thanks Poppit :happy: I'm sticking to white sheets so I can't see the snail trail :snigger:
it's good that your baby's bum is pushing up at your ribs, wasn't it transverse a couple of weeks ago?
Mine had never been near my ribs. I'm not sure why but she's not interested in using that space at all. I wish she would, I imagine her being really curled up in a little ball lower down ?(

lizzy

effectiveness of sweeps not that well researched until overdue at term +7 there is a 50% chance of it working withinn 48hrs

my cons said to me other day that after 39 weeks a 1:8 chance but the fact yr 2cm is a more positive chance of it doing as obviously some of the hormones have already got flowing

as for leakage ...omg yeh
pee self at least once a day if cough or sneeze and if not in panty liner have permanent damp knickers

Just had a nice nap and can't really keep myself awake now. I will try to resist the urge to go and lie back down again because I will up all night again otherwise.

2cm dilated, Lizzie, that's really exciting! I hope you can at least get a good night's kip before having to go back again.

Welcome Cheryl,x :D

Pooch, I'm getting loads of discharge too and sometimes a bit of pee leakage (charming subject, eh? :snigger:) and like you had the blobs but the Dr and the unit said it was just hormonal changes and not to worry.
Another weird thing that happened the other day - I was eating some granola type cereal with pecan nuts in that tasted a bit of coffee and everytime I went to the toilet, I could smell coffee!
