My last day on 2nd tri - sob!
Thanks Jem for the bra recommendation. There are mixed reviews online about the M&S fitting so think I'll hold off until I can get in store. I have just ordered some online from Debenhams though! MDD - good list! You've reminded me I need thermometers - I'll keep my eye out for offers in boots / double points weekends and so on. Dizzy - echo not worrying about movements. I thought I felt a tickle at about 16 weeks but then felt nothing at all until close to 20 weeks. The movement didn't become really strong or obvious until 22 weeks, and now the little monster won't keep still! Chimp - great news on your hb! Are you having a birthing pool or going for dry land?
3 days of work then annual leave. Hurrah! Had the worst night's sleep last night - I kept waking up with heartburn. At 3am I had to sit on the edge of the bed for 20 mins after taking gaviscon until it subsided and I could lie down again. Pregnancy is so glam!
Hope you all have a great day :)

Mrs 50s, good luck over on 3rd tri! Xxx
Slept badly too, husband snored like I've never heard before. Off to get me a pregnancy pillow and a snore pillow for him!

Good morning :-)
Mrs 50s - good luck in 3rd tri. One step closer go meeting your baby :-)
Mrs P - my h is luck he doesnt snore!
Not much happening here. Another wet day! Went to look at buggys yesterday as I need a new one since my buzz is broken. Love the nipper 360. Aaron has gymastics this afternoon but thats our only plan for the day :-)

Morning ladies, 50s can't believe your off to 3rd Tri! It's flying by!
Mrs P, I've bought a pregnancy pillow, I find it really good, only it's a pain if you try to roll over!
I didn't have a great sleep either, I always have a rubbish sleep on a Sunday though.
Nothing much from me, I *think* I felt some fluttery movements last night but I'm not totally sure, I keep thinking maybe I'm looking for them and its just normal feelings that I never normally notice. It could have been the baby though! I have so much on at work this week but I only have this week then off for a fortnight!! Woohoo! We're not going away, I have my scan right in the middle of the two weeks but I can't wait to just be off work and get stuff done around the house!

Morning CK missed you lovey. Have fun buggy shopping! I'm not far from you and it looks like its getting ready to pour again! It's still warm though so I feel like I'm in an oven with a jacket on!

Hi ladies, just popping my head in today to see if you are all ok. Busy at work :-( Don't they know I need time to come on here?!?! Rude!

Mrs50s- Good luck in 3rd tri and I will see you over there soon! Hope the next 3 days go quickly and you can enjoy some time off.
MrsPenguin- Sorry you had such a rubbish nights sleep. Hope the pillows make things more comfortable for you both!
CK- Have fun today. No rain here this morning.. yet.. but it was chucking it down ALL day yesterday!
MissDD- I was the same with movement. You will know it's baby soon enough! Very jealous of all this time off work people have coming up!
AFM- Had a lovely weekend. Picked my nephew up on Saturday morning and he stayed over and we had step daughter overnight on Friday and Saturday. Was lovely when we dropped them both off yesterday though. I literally collapsed after they had gone! Had a 'little' (hour and a half!) nap. I have slept so much this weekend. H got up with the kids on both days and left me in bed until 11am! Haven't had that much sleep in ages!

Mrs 50's - Good luck on 3rd tri! Time really is flying now!
Mrs Penguin - sooo glad my husband doesn't snore he does however have fidgetitis!!
CK - Sounds like a lovely quiet day!
Missdeedee - jealous of time off work :( I have a week at the end of Aug but that feels like ages away!
Little Pixie - Same here work busy but we need regular breaks right?? lol
AFM - quiet weekend which was actually lovely! Got a list together of all the things we still need and hope other people will buy for us ha ha! Also realised the amount of shifting furniture around we need to do upstairs and reorganisation! (we have a 2 bed house and currently 2nd bedroom is spare room/general dumping ground) Will begin that task this weekend oh joy!

Samjh87 missed you there! I'm jealous of all that sleep!!

Mrs50s/chimp - I had a birth pool at home last time, but never made into the sodding thing. Gave birth leaning into an armchair. This time, first twinge and we are filling the pool!!
MrsP - I have a dream genni pregnancy pillow from last time. I love it :-)
Ck - enjoy gymnastics
MDD - hurrah for movements :-)
LP - least being busy makes the day fly by
Sam - well done on all the sleep!
AFM - went to bed just after 9pm last night and bar a 3am wee I slept until half 6 this morning. Hurrah. Off to Tesco today and then might do some baking. (Currently playing with Duplo & LO still in pjs tho!)

I'm sneaking on at work seeing as the IT guys haven't realised the site isn't blocked at the moment!!!
Mrs 50s good luck i 3rd tri, we'll all be joining you before you know it!! With the M&S bras, I got fitted in store, I told them I was pregnant when I made the appointment and they were lovely, hope you get something that fits
MrsP I have the summer pregnancy pillow, it's brilliant for helping me get to sleep although I do keep waking up tangled in it lol
ck enjoy gymnastics
mdd I felt first fluttery movements early on then again 2 days later, only felt something once since then so I've been torturing myself!!! Your scan must be quite close to mine, I'm going 2 weeks today. Will be nice to have those 2 weeks off!
sam I am so jealous of all that sleep, but sounds like you had a good weekend
RL sounds like last weekend was beter than next one will be!
HF Duplo sounds waaay more fun than tesco!!
AFM had quite a busy weekend, got a few bits for baby although my mum said not to get any more as people want to get things for me but they don't know what yet. I've told her I have a list of stuff and if they want to get off that that would be lovely. Sat watching tv yesterday afternoon for a bit and got the most incredible pain low down to the side of my bump, I struggled to breathe properly and had tears streaming down my face for a good half hour then it gradually eased off. No idea what it was although I do have a cyst on the one side so I'm wondering if it might have been that. Otherwise not much to report other than I really really don't want to be at work! Booked 2 weeks annual leave in December to tag onto the front of my maternity leave so 17 weeks to go!

RosyLee- It seems to be the week of list making on here! H's mum said she would get our crib so that is another thing we don't have to worry about. I have started a list with prices and where to get from. Isn't really THAT much.. I don't think!
Horsefan- Well done on the sleep! Hope you have a lovely day :)
Jem- Naughty naughty sneaking on at work. I would cry if work blocked mumdrum! haha Have no idea what the pain could have been but take care of yourself! Another one that really really doesn't want to be at work. I feel like a zombie today and can't believe I still have 2 months working to go :( This makes me sad!

HF - I've heard so many stories like that, and our hot water system is so slow (low pressure - takes 40 mins to fill our small bath!) that's we're - if you'll excuse the pun - splashing out on a rigid pool with heater / filter so we can fill it 2 weeks before due date and the temperature will be constantly maintained (and the water constantly filtered - we just have to follow the instructions and clean the filter weekly) so it will be ready to dive in at a moments notice... in the meantime, it'll make for some lovely relaxation time (with or without hubby) without having to worry about squishing my whale-like body into our teeny bath! It's a 4 week hire so will be filled from 38 to 42 weeks.

Thanks ladies, I found the dream jeanie pillow for £25 in tk maxx today. I just had a quick try on the bed and think I could have slept right through til tomorrow morning.

Missdeedee- not long now until your break! Bet your sooo looking forward to it!
Samjh87- sounds like you had a busy weekend! Good job you had a good rest afterwards! Sounds exhausting! :-)
Rosylee- sounds like a busy weekend of sorting for you this weekend then..dont do too much!
HF- mmmm baking, yummy! Hope you've had a good day!
Jem- take it easy! Yay for only 17 weeks! I love saying it in weeks rather than months as it seems a lot less! :-)
AFM- had a lovely weekend at the seaside in Norfolk, walked about 8/9miles over two days..legs were aching a bit yesterday though!
Been to see my parents' new 'red fox labrador' puppy, so have been having uber cute cuddles tonight!
I also fell in love with the Mamas and Papas jamboree bedding and Nursery range but not with the price tag so have been eyeing up ebay. Managed to bag a bargain and buy a few bedding bits that were new at a quarter of the price! :-)
Sorry for anyone that I've missed...hello to all that follow!
