How are you all? Good weekends? Had a relaxed one here, I'm so exhausted and had two hr naps both afternoons! Goodness knows how I'm going to manage this week when I can't have one!
Today I'm off out for lunch with my sis and my mum is taking M, then we are going to stay at my mum's for the night, looking forward to it. Pregnancy wise, sore boobs continue, tiredness is unreal and bloated doesbt describe it. No nausea yet but still early for that I think?
Hope all are ok. Might not get back on today so have a good day ladies xx

Sounds like you have a lovely day planned! Remember not everyone gets nausea/sickness, you might be lucky.
I have my booking in appt this morning, quite looking forward to it and it all being official lol going shopping after for some bits for my sons 4th birthday party. Sore boobs, intermittent nausea and exhaustion, all fun haha

Weekend - sounds like a good day planned. Maybe try a 20 minute power nap? Or just a 2 hour early her time to make up for the missed nap!
Isis - very exciting about your booking in appointment, have you had to.choose a hospital to give birth at?
After a rather emotional and very down then up weekend, I feel rather like it was a dream. Been feeling exhausted all weekend yet annoyingly not sleeping well at night. Had to pull the car over on the way to do the horses this morning as thought I was going to see my breakfast again, but so far I have managed to keep it down! I seem to feel fine while I am actually eating ( although I cant face chocolate or anything sweet, whats that all about!!) its when I stop eating, doesnt bode well for my waist line!
Happy Monday guys and hope we all have good weeks

Pp, I seem to be eating constantly too! Will get back to exercising soon. I'm hopefully having a home birth, I had one with my son which was amazing. I'm a bit concerned if I do need to go to hospital as our trust is in special measures or whatever they call it.

Hi all, happy Monday (groan!)
Weekender- hope you have a lovely day out, try and take it easy if you feel tired!
Isis-Hope the booking appt goes well!
PP- Hope you feel better soon - and that you keep everything down! If eating little and often is the way to keep the sickness at bay then go with it :)
AFM back at work today after a week off - bleh! Got a grand total of 4 hours sleep last night (I think part of it was anxiety as I knew from today I'd be telling people at work!) so I'm even grumpier than a normal 'back to work after holiday' Monday! BUT H has just let me know we got our combined screening test results through the post and they are low risk 1:24499 which is a relief so feeling quite happy after that!

WE - Glad you managed to get loads of sleep! Enjoy your day.
Isis - Hope the booking in goes well. Have you got your scan date yet?
PP - You have had a dramatic weekend, hope its sinking in now.
Rose - Have you told your work colleagues yet? Hope it went well and you can sleep better tonight. Very good results as well!
AFM - First day of my holiday, had a lovely lie in but now feeling knackered again (how is that possible?!). Weather here is rubbish, currently waiting for a gap in the rain so I can take the dog out.
Oh and here's my scan pic from Saturday as promised.

Weekender - hope you survive the day without a nap!
Isis - hope booking in goes well! V exciting!!
PP - I haven't had chance to congratulate you on the twinnies!! It's so exciting!!
Rose - great news about the test results! Brilliant!
Mrs V - fabulous scan picture! Hope you get some good weather while you're off!
AFM - had an amazing weekend the wedding! They loved their cake that I made so that's a relief. Really didn't enjoy the lack of fizz drinking but I still boogied till last orders! I'm another feeling tired and bloated. Put a pencil skirt on for work that is soooo tight I imagine it'll be the last day of wearing. However I suspect its the food baby rather than the baby baby at this point!!

Hi ladies, scan is now booked for 15th August and booking in appt mostly went well although apparently my son was low birth weight so I'm being referred for an opinion. It's the first I've heard of it and I'm a bit upset tbh but I'll see what happens.
29/07/2013 at 13:43
Aww fab scan pic Mrs V! How exciting :-) Have told some work colleagues- expect the news will spread on its own now knowing my work!!!
29/07/2013 at 13:59
Ok so my mw can't do sums, he wasn't low birth at all, such a relief. Sorry, stress over!

Afternoon all. Isis glad its looking good for a home birth.
Not much to report here. Just in from work, going to grab lunch before collecting the kids from my SIL. A has her martial art class tonight. Not much pregnancy related to report, other than I appear to have lost my notes! Can't find them anywhere! I was sure I'd put them in my car glovebox when I came out from last appointment but now have no idea where they are!
29/07/2013 at 16:48
Not sure if anyone will be back on as we tend to be morning people :)
Weekender, hope you enjoyed your lunch.
Isis, glad booking in went well and the baby weight thing was sorted out.
PP, huge news to take so not surprised you had a bit of an emotional rollercoaster.
Rose, how was it telling colleagues? Were they surprised? A few of mine already know and have hinted it's going to cause shockwaves when the rest find out :-S
Mrs V, lovely pic. Very jealous of your holiday too. I always feel tired especially when I've had a lie in for some reason.
Sweetpea, glad the cake went down well and the wedding was good.
LR, hope you find your notes soon.
AFM, nothing much to report at all. One week until the scan. Hopefully it will come round quickly and all will be well. It feels like a lifetime since I booked it. Going to leave work now and go home and tidy up. Been out all weekend so the house is a tip and I haven't had the energy to do it.
Hope you all have a good evening.

Little Dude- it was okay, very nerve wracking and I've only told a few! My boss already knew so not sure why I am so anxious about it all but I think it's a bit like you- worry what they might think. Daft eh!!
We've put our scan pic on twitter/fb now so the cat is well and truly out of the bag. Someone's said the baby looks like Homer Simpson!!! Worst bit is, now I look at it, I can sort of see what he means......! :-(

Rose, my 20w scan with Jude looked like his spine was corn on the cob, he came out looking like a baby so don't worry!

My first day here. Tested this morning, already seen doc and got pack. Feels surreal as I'm expecting things to go wrong, but I'm happy and excited too! After swearing we'd tell no one we told my mum and sis :)
I've downloaded 3 apps and bought 2 books!!
