Just wondering, we had our consultants appointment today and have our section date booked in for 21st December, had to have a section with the last three so had no choice with this one, but it does mean that a - bubs is home in time for christmas with the big brothers and b - I don't have to even consider having the banana smoothie :cheers: :cheers:

Surely we can't be the only ones who are now counting down the days till, not the joy of the birth, but the hell of where do you put both mother-in-laws, who will no doubt stay for christmas, we currently can't see the spare bedroom for all the junk thats in it!

Oh and if anyones wondering yes it is only 20 wks 3 days to christmas now!!!!!

Congrats on having your date booked!
DS was a natural birth so I only know the feeling of wondering when instead of knowing! Next (hopefully) baby will be born via section though so I'll have my chance then!

And just 20 weeks, :pale: !

Hi Sarah

Us too, our little man is due 11th November. But both my girls were early, so I am trying to get organised. I have been sorting out the baby stuff, plus buying birthday present (dd2 25th October) and Christmas presents. I am really hoping for a natural birth. Dd1 was natural and dd2 was a section. But as long as he comes out safe and sound thats all that matters.

Its not the Mother-in- Law that I have an issue with, its my parents :(. I am really not looking forward to that bit at all. Luckly we have no space, so no one will stay with us lol.

It's worse than just 20 weeks for us, in the space of the next 21 weeks, we have 3 birthdays (an 8 yr old a 2 yr old and mine), 2 weeks camping, 1 baby being born, christmas, mrluvpie in court (giving evidence I should stress) a possible family court hearing for custody of the eldest boys.

I really don't know where we are going to find the time to re-find the allotment!!!!

Nikki - I'm hoping after this one arrives everyone realises we don't have the space for them to stay anymore, at least I wouldn't have to keep tidying up then!!

to be honest I'm feeling hideous, which has come as a complete shock as I have 2 boys & didn't get any pregnancy symptoms with either of them, so i've convinced myself this one must be a girl!

you poor thing, I felt fine with the first two and terrible with No 3, but all boys, just my body obviously could cope with genes from my idiot ex, but hated brummie genes floating around inside me!!

Yay, congrats to you all - lots of little ishers on their way!

I'm sooooooooo broody right now. Gawd knows why - I've a three year old boy who doesn't listen to a word I say, and a 9 month old boy who, despite the living room looking a like a ram-raided Hamleys, prefers crawling towards the fire, or any available plug socket. My nerves are shot....but I still want another. Can't have one, so need to stop moaning and hope I can be Cyber Aunty Twiglet to our new little ishers instead!! :lol:

Enjoy your pregnancies, ladies. It's a fabulous time, isn't it? Even when it has to be viewed retrospectively!

Ahhh, congratulations to all the bump bearers! My little girl is 10 weeks old and I'm already broody! In fact, I was broody the second they held her up for us to see (over the c-section blue screen...). It was wonderful. If only I had more than 2 bedrooms and a bit more income. We just don't have the space for any more!
