Very Happy Very Happy

And getting really excited... Thumbs Up

Although i did fall over this morning when walking Georgia-Mae to school Embarassed i landed on my hands and knees and bump has been active. DP is stressing at me a little - but i'm fine!

Hiring a tens machine next week from my MW's for £10 - how good is that!? Saves a few pennies and a trip into a bigger town.

As for names our original choice is out of the window (Rossi James)
and on the list now are Harry (Joseph as middle name), Harvey and Reuben.

Feeling fab although a little uncomfy at times - and nearly have everything for bumps arrival - LMAO!

Oh hun, i hope you are ok, what a time to fall over!! Get yourself checked if babies movements slow down won't you. I'm sure you'll be fine though!

A bargain on the tens machine hire though Thumbs Up I can't believe you only have 2weeks left - could be anytime now i suppose? Could you try and hold it in until i am back though? LOL I don't want to miss the announcement! Very Happy

Names are fab too, I love Harry myself (the others are all nice too though! Yes ) Xx

I really like the name Harry, it sounds like a proper cheeky little boys name. You're so lucky you're near your due date, I feel like I have ages!
I hope you've settled nicely in your new place now and doing your mummy nesting bit. So exciting, all these new beginnings xx

Not long now!! Baby

I finish work 2 weeks today- went thru my birth plan on
Tuesday, considering a TENS too, can get from hospital for a one-off payment of £20 which I just leave with them when I'm done! Midwife seems to think that I should be OK for normal delivery as been quite a while since last c-section so have had plenty of time to heal- fingers crossed! She also thinks that consultant may let me go over a few days to see if I go by myself. I think I may do as when I had James, I had apparently started to go into labour a few hours before he was born by c-section although it was very early stages. James was 40 weeks +4. I just hope my instincts are right and that I go into labour close to delivery date. I think I would have been close with Gem too.

Hope you are settling into your new place OK?

We are settling in great ladies, thanks ever so much! I love it here already! It really is pretty perfect! Just a short walk with Georgia-Mae to school and back everyday and in the middle of a village which is very friendly - all it lacks is a village shop but tbh - that does not bother me. We lived out in the sticks for 5 years surrounded by nothing but fields - so village life is a bonus for us!

I thnk Harry is definatley at the top of our list but i just wanted some other names incase after his arrival we don't think it suits him!??

Lou, i decided to try a tens just as i never had that option with Georgia-Mae and a number of people recommended them.

Went through my birth plan last week with new MW and i mentioned alot of things i was unhappy with during my last labour. I told her that the midwife told me off for moving, for getting onto all fours, for trying to walk - she wanted me to lay on the bed and be monitored the whole time even though their was nothing wrong. She said i will be encouraged to walk, use a birthing ball, get a bath or into any position i want too. She did tell me not to rule out drugs though (as i mentioned pethidine and gas and air made me violently sick last time). She said they now use diamorphine - as another option. I;m ust going to go with the flow and do what feels right.

I really, really cannot believe how quickly time has flown since i announced our news Scared

and that we find a name we both love in that time!

It was Harry but i now have a baby cousin named this so out of the question.

I like so many - Mark cannot come up with any he likes.

Although he apparently likes Samuel now (which i love!?)

Take the diamorphine, it is FAB Thumbs Up I don't remember very much!!

No seriously, I wouldnt use it again umless I really had to, I was sick throughout my labour, not sure if it was the morphine or the gas and air, I also never asked for it but I was told they would give me something to help me sleep during the night (they didnt want me to deliver in the night as they were shorted staffed) so I was giving it
