Oh ok you're going to bed... don't want to get anyone's hopes up (including mine) but i've had 5min appart contractions since 8pm... not painful really.. just intense (having to breath through them).

Hope its not a false start but either way i think its just the beginning.. very different to what i've had all week.

Will SMS Syl as promised if it developes further.

Going to bed... will report in in the morning.

Couldn't lay down.. pain got worse.. going to time them all carefully now.

Typical that it all happens when no one is awake to talk to sad.gif

I'm still here Karen

not getting any closer .. still very uncomfortable... going to wake Jared up soon and go for a walk to the shops... don't think i can handle another whole day of pains like this ... need them to progress so i can get it over and done with. I've had no sleep.

Just had one then... 56seconds.. will see how long til next one.

Definitely go for that walk...and squat squat squat...do all you can to push your little girls head onto your cervix!

Oooh Meliss, this is exciting hearing it unfold....what's happening now??

Was meant to have a lie in this morning while Charlotte slept and DH went to do our fruit and vege pickup from the markets, but of course charlotte woke when DH got up (all the noise he makes!!) so he left and she was awake and wanted me up!!

So been awake since 5.30am....yuk.

Korrine - lovely to hear from you, very lucky you were using your sids monitor. We had one but never bothered installing it under charlotte's cot. I think for the next one we will.

Karen - you up early again?? Was it jack being demanding again? Or are you just an early riser?

Danni - sure tale signs of teeth, i agree, Charlotte has been the same the last few weeks and her eye teeth (three of them) are coming through. Not a happy camper.

Ali - how was dinner?

Put charlotte to bed last night at 7.30 and she finally stopped talking, giggling and wriggling around at 8.45pm! Was hoping that would mean i got a sleep in this morning, but as i said above, 5.30 was our waking time this morning...aaaargh. Glad tomorrow is mother's day and i can get a sleep in.

Hi celeste. Hope you got a sleep in this morning.

Kristy - what movie did you watch? Did you actually watch any of it?? blush.gif  wub.gif

Well better sort out brekkie for little miss.
Will check in later to see if there's movement at the station (meliss station that is).

Korrine, how scary about Jesse! So glad to hear both boys are home safe and sound now.

Deb, soccer this morning otherwise i would still be in bed nice and warm. Have to be on the otherside of Campbelltown by 8.30am

How exciting. I hope this is it Meliss. Bummer I won't be around today to read your posts. Hope I have lots to read when I get home. Syl, please sms me with the news as soon as you know, pretty please.

The SA girls have decided they will keep secrets now and tell noone (but one or two) when they are in labour or getting induced so you know nothing (or they tell you a porky) and then you get a birth announcement. So boring. I love to hear the happenings, love to know what's happening.
So tell all (well what you can handle)  laughing2.gif

Karen, Have fun at soccer.

Deb, We had Pursuit of Happiness and no we didn't watch it. We are tonight though.

I have footy today from 12-5pm. I have to go down to the ANZ this morning to activate my card and make B and J their own bank accounts. And then go to HN to print some piccies and buy some frames. Tonight we are probably going to the Quiz night at the footy club. We hadn't booked a table so not sure yet. Not sure I want to go yet, I won't be able to focus with A as she loves to do a runner at the club (goes outside with the kids all the time) See what happens.
Tomorrow have to leave at 8.20am for footy match then go visit one of our mums then be at another match at 11.30am then presentations at 2.30pm then to another mums after that, about 4pm, then home about 6pm for dinner. Lovely mothers day  wacko.gif  tongue.gif

Enjoy your weekends everyone

(I'll keep checking in Meliss when I can for any news, fingers crossed for you)

I hate waiting......

Meliss you better not all of a sudden have a fast labour. Amanda has dancing this morning....wait till i get home at 12 and then have her before i leave at 3.30  biggrin.gif

Ben and Chris have their first BMX races today...

With my headache whoever asked.....
Is it from my neck? No i think it is because of my sinus issue. My face is swollen under the eyes and there is pressure accross my face and behind my ears.

Can my neck be fixed?
That will depend on what the bone scan shows. The CT showed only the lordosis so now I have to have a bone scan. Apparently my bones might be to strong and rather than painfully wear away to make room for the lordosis straigtening they just compact together and grind against everything else. But this is speculation just now.

Morning everyone.

Just popping in to see how Meliss is doing.
Meliss- sounds like today or tomorrow you will be meeting your newest addition to your family! Well I hope so for you. Wishing you an amazing labour! Can't wait to hear news.

Hello to everyone else. I haven't read, just so busy. We pick up the keys on monday so then the fun will really start. I can't wait lol.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Mothers Day tomorrow.

I'll try popping on during the week if I get a chance.. I think the computer will be one of the last things to move as it will take a few weeks for it to be reconnected  sad.gif .
