Well, now seeing a rheumy nurse practitioner, who seems very nice. Change in meds to sulfasalazine, aiming to be off prednisolone by the summer (apparently!), hope this will all prove to be a good course of action! In the meantime, 1st grandchild is about to put in an appearance, so my nerves are ever so slightly on edge! Worked my fingers to the bone knitting (I'm rubbish at it, but there couldn't be more love put into the bits I've made!), so hands ache like mad - they will feel so much better once I can hold baby in my arms! Will let you all know whether a he or she arrives!

    Thankyou. Really looking forward to it, bit stressful right now as daughters in hospital, being monitored as there's no fluid around baby, though baby seems fine!

    On another note, cos I'm not v clever at these things, I don't know how to put the little pic cites in my posts?!

    Right Sharon

    to your left as you type your reply?

    See them all?

    Just click on one and it will appear

    If you are after some that aren't here (like the knitting one)

    http://www.cosgan.de/smilie.php?wahl=16&ziel=haushalt is the website. I have it saved to favourites. With those you right click over the piccie you like, then a box says something about your clipboard.....click on NO.....then the 'link' for your chosen smilie turns blue. Right click on the blue bit and a box says all sorts of things you click on copy......come back here right click and click on paste and it will be there.

    Doesn't look like it will but it is :xmas_cheesygrin:

    No fluid?? Mmm....so log as they are both ok - when is baby due?

    Love

    Thanks, tho only the word appears! Must be doing something wrong! I'll get a younger person on the case!

    Baby's due on Monday, they're monitoring both daughter and baby, say there's cause for concern but not panic! Now, if we could just get that message up to my brain!

    They've given her stuff to get her started, which didn't work, so giving her more today (unless they decide different on docs rounds!). My thoughts are that they may do a c-section.

    Keep you posted!

    Hi Sharon

    Don't worry the 'word' turns into a piccie once posted :xmas_cheesygrin:

    Monday eh? How fabulous a Christmas baby :areindeer:

    So long as they are looking after her that's the main thing. I hope baby comes soon

    Love

    Thankyou everyone!

    Barbara, I'm a bit slow on the uptake, but not sure why I should post separately?

    I'm nanny, sil mum is granny - we share the same Christian name, so this makes life easier!

    Thankyou - think I've got a severe case of baby brain!

    Had my first cuddle when she was about 20 minutes old! More cuddles last night, off to hospital for more in a little while! Mind you, may not get a look in tonight because our other daughter is going to meet her niece for the first time!

    I was going to be with our daughter and her husband for the birth, but then things went a bit haywire! Hence being able to have cuddles so soon!
