OK here is my moan-list:

My bad hips are back. I can't walk to the end of the garden without my pelvis throbbing like it wants to crack open. I can't push a pram without stopping for breathe every four steps. I'm ergo crabby to my lovely son. I have received a letter telling me I have to go for a blood glucose screening next Thursday. More blood has to be taken. Twice. I have to be there for two frigging hours. Did I mention blood has to be taken? It does. Then in May I have to have another scan to see if my placenta has shifted. I am fed up of having to plan how to roll over in bed in advance of doing it. I'm fed up with people expecting me to carry on as normal when I can't actually move that well. I hate shopping. I hate food shopping. For some reason online Tesco shopping is not an acceptable option according to my hubby. Tough. Just this second had a phonecall from my GPs midwife who has been checking her records and wondered what has happened to me (I'm currently seeing the midwife at the SureStart building and have been all my pregnant life); assuring to know it has only taken her 7 frigging months to check up on my existence. Don't get frightened about the NHS - no, no, we are in safe hands. *Rolls eyes*. It's cold. I've lost ALL my gloves and I have bad skin. But that's not a big deal just an extra pin-prick of misery to add to my over-all moanfest situation. I have a bad back now as well. Moan.

On the bright side I bought Boss a cricket set today from ELC and he loves it and can hit the ball and giggles like a maniac everytime he does.

Ahhh, that's nice.

NO I bloody well haven't!

Sorry to swear on your blog D, please forgive me in my temprimental hormonal state. I am contracting every night enough to keep me awake...last night till 4am and then NOTHING flippin happens and I am left trying to wobble through the subsequent day with no sleep.

Also my dh is ALWAYS asking me "are you contracting?" in a 'no pressure but it would be nice to get it out before I have to start work in Leicester on Monday' type of way. I lost it a bit last night. "LOOK, I WILL TELL YOU WHEN I STOP O.K?"

Very sad to hear about blood thingy. I am difficult to get blood out of too but Alhamdulilah I don't have a problem with needles...just the waiting times they have at the hosp.

I had a low placenta with A which I was scanned for to check it had risen. It had...I think it's fairly common. Look on the bright side at least you get another glimpse of your little one and may even be able to see 'bits' or not!

Yes, will be looking for bits and may just be mardy enough to ask them outright as I'm really wanting to confirm my hunch.

No sleep thing is a total bummer - you need all your strength for labour and you aren't given it due to sleeplessness. If you want to drop the kids off here for a morning (or PM whatever suits) you are more than welcome. I'd love to have an afternoon of mastermind :P

I would offer to *pick* your kids up but we are having "issues" with the car (*again*). I think I want to rant about this too but daren't in case my head explodes....*bites tongue*

*tongue drops off*

LOL, have you got a black leather chair?!

Careful about the sex enquiring thing, I know one friend who made a joke about seeing the sex of the baby on screen and the sonographer turned the screen away! I think it depends on who you get. My advice: Leave it until the end of the scan to ask, be really nice and have 'I don't care boy or girl' type conversations and I'll email you privately the description of the one who told us off record so you know if you stand a chance or not!!

I have a brown computer swivel chair... will that do? I think I'll just say "I was told it's a girl last time..." and see what reaction I get :P
