Morning! Here we are again, Monday! How I love you so.
how was everyone's weekend? Did you do anything exciting?
Well I think today will mark my last day in 2nd tri, I can't quite believe I'm going to be 3rd tri. After everything 2013 threw at us I really didn't think we'd get this far.
I'm still lying in bed, my hips, back, leg and bum are killing me. The sciatica is at it's worst so I think I'm going to ask for that referral now.
In better news, happy feet is kicking away, I think they want breakfast!

Morning Imp - sorry to hear you're in pain this morning. Hope it eases off soon. Yay to third tri! Such a huge milestone. We'll miss you over here!
My weekend was busy and I was shattered last night. Saturday we went to look at the Affinity pram again just to confirm its the one we want. Mothercare have an offer on so it works out the same price as the website I saw it on online! Not ready to order it yet though, still feel like its too early. Then we went to JL and they had every-other pacapod bag there other than the oban! So annoyed, but had a play with some of the others. My only concern is the main section in the oban being too small, as we're using cloth nappies I'm concerned the pods wont be big enough if we go out for the day, so I'd need a decent sized main compartment. Back to the drawing board? :(
Then we saw friends Saturday night which was fun, although a late one. Yesterday we saw some friends and their kids and although we'd planned a picnic due to the weather we ended up at an indoor play area thingy which was nice.
Hello to those that follow x
Imp - Happy last day! Sad you're moving up as you're leaving us, but thrilled that this means you're one step closer to your longed for baby :-) I've been suffering with sciatica too so feel your pain - hope the referral helps! See you in a few weeks :-)
AFM - Been struggling to get on with life being a tad chaotic. Thankfully mum out of hospital now with antibiotics to clear infection and drugs to disperse her haematoma (result of a botched op/being discharged before she was well enough for those who don't know what was going on). We went for a tea party to celebrate O's birthday on Saturday and she is finally on the mend, albeit nearly 3 weeks on from the op! We all has a lovely day and O was spoilt rotten! Yesterday was clearing down and packing here ready for the move on Friday. ..O went of to the ILs to play with his cousins and we cracked on! Think he must've stuffed himself as had a lovely midnight waking to him being sick all over his bedding and himself :'( Fully strip needed! He's fine today thankfully.
Anyway I'm rambling now...shall pop back yo check in on everyone throughout the day xx

Ah! Happy last day in 2nd tri Imp!! How exciting. Good luck over there, will see you soon. Sounds like you need to get that referral going, sciatica is not something you want to leave. Hope you get something to help with it soon.
Browny - busy weekend! Glad you had a nice time with your friends but sorry the weather wasn't as nice. When are you thinking of ordering the pram? If you get it on a price plan or something don't mothercare have to sell it at the lowest price or something? I'm sure I read that somewhere...
Coco - oh poor O. Sign of a good time at the IL's though! Sounds like packing is moving along. You go this week don't you? You must be so looking forward to getting in and being settled.
AFM - long weekend as I worked both days. I am now exhausted so had planned for an early night but H did something to his knee weekend before last playing rugby and wants me to come with to the walk in centre tonight. Hopefully it won't be a long wait! Baby wise my bump seems to have got massive and kicks have been getting harder although H has still only felt 3. Bean seems to go very shy whenever H puts his hand on my bump to feel.

Imp, yey to 3rd tri!! I'll be brave and make the move with you, like kids moving to big school together lol! Sorry your sciatica is bad today, I hope the referral comes through quickly for you. Lovely that Happy Feet is kicking so much though :)
Browny, sounds like a busy but lovely weekend. Pram browsing is exciting! Hope you find a changing bag that you're happy with soon.
Coco, I'm so glad to hear that your mum is out of hospital and on the mend. Hope you're doing okay x It sounds like O has had a fab birthday! Glad he's feeling better today. Do you have much more packing to do ahead of Friday?
Jonesy, boo to working all weekend! Will you get some time off this weekend to balance it out a little? At least the Easter weekend is in sight :) Hope you're not waiting long at the walk-in tonight and that your H is soon on the mend.
AFM, quiet weekend. We went out for lunch with my parents on Saturday and then just slobbed around on Sunday - it was bliss! Popping out to visit a friend this afternoon and then I need to knuckle down and start my new contract work.
I have the mw tomorrow, which involves bloods for anaemia this time. Joy! I think this is also the start of the mws measuring my bump to see how big baby is, which I'm looking forward to :)
Last day in 2nd tri for me today too...eeek!!!

Imp - sorry to hear you are in pain, I found the referal to Physio for sciatica really helped when I had M, I am just waiting to see how bad it gets this time round
Browny - wow busy weekend! I need to do the same thing with regads the changing bags, I have a clear idea of what I need.
Coco - sounds like you need a rest! glad you had a nice weekend and that your Mum is now on the mend after everything she has been through. Where are you moving to?
Jonesy - Baby has been the same for us, I cannot wait for OH and the girls to be able to feel baby, molly is desperate! Boo to working all weekend too, hope you have a short wait this evening at the walk in centre
AFM - Have had a really busy weekend, lots of crafts with Miss Molly and planning for Lauren as she is having a 16th birthday gathering of about 20 friends at ours next weekend, so of course outfit, hair etc is key! Rob worked virtually all weekend too so I was flying solo and feel exhausted today. handing in my MATB1 at work today, hoping to meet with HR about my maternity pay etc, I want to get it all in writing so I know where I am.

Imp & Fig - I guess if you are both graduating to 3rd tri then I'd better follow!
Browny - what a busy weekend! I'm off to have a nosey at these pacapod bags.
Coco - glad your mum is out of hospital. Not long now until you move!
Jonesy - bump is the same for us. She goes quiet most times when H puts his hand there. Hope your H is ok soon.
Ninabeanie - hope you manage to get a bit of rest following your busy weekend.
AFM - it's monday and my 2 days off! Work has been hectic and 3 lates in a row plus not sleeping properly have left me drained. The house is a tip and needs a good clean but I can't be bothered.

Happy Monday everyone. Bleurgh!
Imp - sorry to hear you're in pain. Have you got your bouncy ball yet - is that helping at all.
Browny - sounds like an exciting weekend, I love the ones where you decide what you're spending money on.
Coco - young lady, you need to slow down! Poor O, although it was probably too many sweets.
Jonesy - good to hear you're getting a good bump, I am sure H will feel the kicks soon enough. Hope you get some rest after your working weekend,
Fig - sounds like a nice chilled weekend. Third tri eh - that's the tri when you HAVE A BABY! Eeek.
AFM - I am feeling pretty good today, despite the grey weather outside. Had a lovely Sunday - went to Lakeside, bought a couple of bits for the nursery and had a look at buggies - pretty sure we are set on the Bugaboo Buffalo - the only annoying thing, is that we like it in one of the new colours, which they don't do in the Buffalo. First world problems eh!
