Em - I am pleased you were able to retrieve your missing garlic, I have to say I really did have a good giggle at that one.
Serafina - Monday is so close! So excited. You must be over the moon to have made it to your edd. :-) And 68 pieces of awesomeness in three weeks is a great achievement.
Abk - I truly couldnt be happier to read that your mom's surgery went well. That is such good news. There is such a special relationship between babies and the elderly, my grandmother was so in love with my children, she had Alzheimers but she had such an intense connection with them there was so much love and life in her eyes when they were together. I am over joyed your grandfather was here to meet your precious wee John.
Shiloh - I hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend with your step kids!
Rainy - i am totally with you, where have all those weeks gone, it doesnt feel like i have been pregnant all year, even though we obviously have. Wonderful news that your midwives are happy for you to go to 41 weeks. Yep had to do the swab here too, no idea what "boop" is but im certain you did just fine. :-)
Gracisue - I have to say the supermarket or the shopping mall are two places that make me nervous at the moment, just in case something happens, waters breaking or the like, I definitely dont think i want that many people around when it happens. Glad to hear your contractions have slowed down considerably.
Afm - 37+5 and Saturday evening here, and this little girl is making things pretty uncomfortable. Lots of tightenings so hopefully they are doing what they need too in there as outwardly they are getting a little frustrating. I seem to be nesting in the evening here, making sure everything is nice and tidy before i head to sleep just in case things start in the night. My darling husband is sound asleep with ds1, he is so in need of a holiday working 6days a week is incredibly taxing. I am very ready to meet our wee girl even though my pool isnt here, birthing on dry land is something i havent done before but if i have to of course I will.
I hope you all have wonderful weekends! x
