yikes

Oh my goodness, just noticed my two tickers! Can't believe I'm so far along already and have hardly any time left at work. This pregnancy just seems to be going by so much quicker than with Plum and because I'm always so busy with her sometimes I've forgotten for a few moments that number two is on its way

Realy can't wait for our overdue 20 week scan (7th Sept) it will make things seem so much more real. I've got a nice bump now, obviously pregnant but very pleased to say that this time around I've managed to keep a bit of a handle on the weight gain which made late pregnancy so tiring last time.

Can't believe Plum is going to be a big sister, I think she will love it.

I was only saying the very same thing today!! Where has that time gone? and I don't think I have put weight on (well not as much as i did with M) as I don't get chance to just eat all day, or whatever I do eat M ends up with half i didn't have to share before :))

Half way there Rivka 8o :))

I know - halfway, as I said before, YIKES!

Thats why I haven't put on as much weight this time, I don't get the time to sit and trough like last time.

Jojo - definitely going to be finding out the sex, unless of course baby is modest and keeps its legs crossed :D. I know not everyone wants to know but for me it will help me to get to know my new little one before it arrives - it was important with Plum and I think will be even more so this time.

Actually more nervous this time about the birth. Ignorance is bliss and all that!

How are you Chilli?

I am fine thanks, really excited, not sure how I feel about labour- one day I think Ohhhh I can't wait it's such a wonderful experience and I am glad I know and am more aware of what I can do and the choices I have, but another day like today I woke in a panick 8o but if I get anything like I did last time mother nature has a very special way of making you WANT to give birth as you are so tried and swollen you just want to have the baby no matter how much it hurts!

I think we are going to find out aswell :))

Honestly you lot! since when was "Yikes" a call to panic stations, barmy women! If it was something frightening I'd say something like "golly" or "bejeebers" naturally.

At first I was convinced its a girl but DH is sure its a boy and for some reason I believe him. We'll find out soon enough.

Is it really like shelling peas? Like chilli says one day I think pah nothing to it and looking forward to it, next minute arrrrggghhhh!

Bit smaller than that.... luckily.... :D

Second time, after a vaginal delivery, your body just remembers how it all works and gets on with it. You know that despite the doubts you had during your first labour, you got through it and you survived. So, the second time around you expect it to be as hard or harder and it's usually a bit easier so you end up a bit ?( when a few hours in they're talking about positions for delivery and stuff.... and then they hand you a baby and you go "oh!.... is that it then... but I...... oh!?!"


See! :D

A girl at works daughter has just had her 3rd. She called her mum to look after the older 2 as she felt a bit sick. Her mum rang her TWO HOURS LATER and said 'do you want me to keep the girls over night to give you a rest?' and she replied 'well they might want to come and meet their new sister!' I think she just coughed and the baby fell out.

I think both Rivka and Chilli are having girls.

a bit of both really. because I'm finishing so early it feels a bit strange, could probably manage to carry on working for a month or so yet but I want to spend some quality time with Plum before I'm overwise occupied.

Hope you're enjoying your maternity leave, R. :D Does stopping early mean that you'll have to go back to work sooner after the baby arrives, or have you given up your job completely?

Hey, R, you've just changed your ticker and you've suddenly got another week of work to go before your maternity leave! I'll have to change my last post and now say that I hope you "enjoy" your last week of work before you stop!

Hope you feel better. I'd really want to get in to tie up loose ends. Feels most unsatisfactory if there are bits hanging around that you didn't explain to people.

yes I'd hate to leave a mess for my cover. You know what its like, there are little bits and pieces that too you are easily sorted but you just know that they could create a hullabaloo if left for someone else. I've been given strict instructions from the doctor not to go back in until Monday which is my last day so I'll have some sorting to do then!
