Morning all, hope everyone is okay even though it is Monday!
Had a painful day yesterday with lots of pain from my appendix scar - good that it's started a lot later in this pregnancy but was hoping to get away without it at all this time. Better today but still very twingy. Quietish day ahead at work although a late one with a governors meeting.
Last week on 2nd tri for me and a few others as well which is scary - people on 3rd tri actually have babies!
13/05/2013 at 07:45
Margot - Don't want to lose you to 3rd Tri yet, ive only just got on here! Hope the appendix scar pain stays away today.
AFM - Off to work today but really cant be bothered. Hoping it will be a fairly quiet day, but it never really ends up that way normally.
13/05/2013 at 07:53
Margot - 3rd tri is a scary thought! Seems like its going so quickly for you! Sorry your scar is painful, hopefully today is an easy one for you.
MS - hope you get the quiet day you're hoping for.
AFM - taking a sick day today which I never do. I have felt so rubbish over the weekend, nauseous and my bump really aching by the end of the day to the point where its actually very painful. Not sure if its growing pains or if I should call the midwife? Shame as we had an amazing day at the Harry Potter studios on Sat but I kept having to sit down. Will be spending most of today in bed!

Margot – ouch, sounds painful. Hope it’s not too bad. Have a good day and hope the meeting doesn’t go on too long.
Mummysimpson – fingers crossed for a quiet day for you.
Popcorn – it sounds like you could do with the rest! And a case of my mum, telling me to remember I’m pregnant can’t do everything like I did before.
AFM – so today is my last day on 2nd tri. Can’t quite believe I’m 28 weeks tomorrow! I had a brilliant time at my friend’s wedding on Saturday, the horrible weather didn’t dampen our spirits at all. Though I was impressed I managed until gone 12, until bump started giving me pains below – think it was just tiredness as not had any more pains since then. However, leg cramps have woken me the past two nights… You know the kind, where you know you have to stretch your leg but feel you’re going to die at the same time?! H offered to start massaging them before I go to bed. Busy week for baby this week – 28 week appointment today, whopping cough tomorrow and then anti D on Weds.
Hope you all have a brilliant day – and I’ll be back late this afternoon/evening to update you on midwife and to bid farewell to 2nd tri!

margot - ooo that doesnt sound too nice.
Mummysimpson- hope works not too bad for you
popcorn - i feel exactly the same. hope you feel better form your sick day
Sapphire - have fun in 3rd tri see you soon :)
AFM - i am at work but regretting not ringing in sick. i feel dreadful. really drained of any energy and feel really uncomfortable. i dont knw if it actually hurts of just discomfrt but my bump feels sore. :( sure its nothing just need to take things slowly today. could do with being in bed for the week but never gonna happen.
hope everyone else is good xx

I can't believe some of you are moving to the 3rd tri already, time is passing by so quickly!!
Margot- hope your scar isn't going to bother you too much, and your day at work goes quickly.
MummyS- that's what I'm hoping for today, a quiet day.
Pc- glad HP world was fab but sorry you're not feeling well.
Sapphire- cramps are the worst aren't they, hope H an massage it out when it happens for you.
AFM- I'm doing ok. Had another busy weekend so feel quite tired today. Bump is doing ok and gettin more and more active which is good and today I'm starving so must be having a growth spurt I reckon!!
Poppy - 21+1 x
13/05/2013 at 08:34
Margot - That scar pain sounds nasty you poor thing. Hope it's a bit better today
Mummy S - I am totally in your "can't be bothered" camp today. I really don't want to be here. Mumdrum will get you through!
Popcorn - Have a rest, you have done too much I think. If you are worried give the MW a call though
Sapphire - Well done! That is very late. I can't remember the last time I made it past 10pm never mind midnight!
AFM - Had some weird stretchy pains this morning, nothing I was worried about. Wish my bump would appear a bit more though. When is it likely to "pop out"?
Busy week at work :-(
13/05/2013 at 08:35
Twink - missed you there. Take it easy. If you feel unwell by lunchtime why don't you go home xx
13/05/2013 at 08:37
LP- missed you too! Bump will be popping out soon, definitely by your 20 week scan I would say xx
13/05/2013 at 08:38
poppyseed - i would but i dont get paid so i make my self feel worse fretting about money. catch 22. glad you had a nice weekend :)
LP - i felt just fat at 15 weeks then it started to really bump up so it will come :)
13/05/2013 at 08:53
Margot- Hope your scar pain goes away! I want to stay in 2nd tri for ages as I feel like I need at least a year or 2 to prepare for baby!
MS- I'm feeling the same about work. I'm here but really can't be bothered. I can see blue sky and I want to be outside making the most of it!
Popcorn- Hope you are feeling better soon. Some rest will definitely do you some good.
Sapphire- I'd just at the chance to have my legs rubbed every evening! I might tell H I've been getting crampy pains too :) haha. Have fun over on 3rd tri!
Twink- Hope you are feeling better soon and achey bump stops!
PS- I've been starving since the start of pregnancy so hoping I'm not having a 20lbs baby!
LP- I had some stretchy pains yesterday too just on one side. They were coming and going so definitely dont think it's anything to worry about and just something that I'm sure we will get used to over the coming months! I'm still just feeling a bit tubby but bump is coming on a bit more!
AFM- Not a lot to report. Had a lovely weekend and now it's all over and back at work. Rubbish!!
13/05/2013 at 09:45
Good morning lovelies
Margot – Third tri already?! Scary but exciting, nearly on the home stretch. Hope the pain from your scar eases up and your meeting isn’t too bad later!
MummyS- Hope your day isn’t too busy!
Popcorn – glad you had a good weekend. Maybe having today off to rest and do nothing will make you feel a bit better, just don’t be tempted to catch up on the housework or anything!
Sapphire – Another one we are losing to 3rd tri?! Glad you enjoyed your friends wedding. Busy week indeed for baby, nearly into the single digit countdown! Exciting x
Twink – hope the discomfort eases soon. Maybe go home early if your not feeling any better by later on xx
PS – Glad to hear baby is more active. And I’m with you on the growth spurt, not stopped eating all weekend!
LP – People have told me its around 17-18 weeks when it really pops out. I’m 17+2 today and I must say the belly is starting to expand! Everyone is different though but I’m sure it won’t be too far off! X
Sam – the joys of work on a Monday morning. I think we all feel the same! Boo!
AFM – nothing much to report from me. I’ve been eating non-stop over the weekend, just constantly hungry so I think baby is having a growth spurt!! Still getting these pains in my side but they seem to have eased a bit, I’m wondering if it’s just one of the joys! 3 weeks today til scan day, not coming quick enough!!!
17 + 2
13/05/2013 at 10:42
Sapphire - another one graduating to 3rd tri, good luck and we will see you there soon! Respect for lasting until 12 at the wedding :)
Twink you sound like me today, poor thing. If you can't leave work early then make sure you have an easy night tonight and go to bed early love x
PS - take it easy and enjoy feeling all those wriggles. I'm feeling loads just laying in bed which is cheering me up :)
LP I had stretchy pains around week 16 then all of a sudden popped around 17 weeks, it was lovely to have a proper bump at last!
Sam boo to Mondays, hope the week goes quick for you
Mrs Mack I have had some pains in my right side but have read that it's quite normal as your uterus tilts to one side, making the fit right side more uncomfortable. Try laying more on your left and see if it helps? There is a big growth spurt around this time x
13/05/2013 at 10:49
Margot eek to 3rd tri! Ill be following you a few days later. It's going quick now!
Mummysimpson hope work goes quick
Popcorn hope you get some rest and feel better soon
Sapphire eek to 3rd tri for you too! Boo to leg cramps!
Twink hope you feel better soon, soon be home time!
Poppy seeds glad baby is active!
LP my bump popped about 19 weeks and then again at about 23 weeks. It will happen!
Sam hope the week flies by for another weekend off
Mrsm scan will soon be here!
Afm day off today for me after weekend night shifts. Having lunch with some friends later, whilst H does some gardening and then well have a chill out night ready for a long day at work tomorrow. Woke up this morning and all my bump was over to the right. Was a very wierd sight, tried to get a photo but baby moved when I rolled over to get phone.
13/05/2013 at 10:56

Margot-hope today the pain eases. 3rd tri next week eekkkk, how exciting
Mummysimpson-hope you have a quiet day at work
Popcorn-hope you manage lots of rest today,no advice about the pains has the bump changed shape etc?
Sapphire-booo to losing someone else to the 3rd tri! Hope the appointment goes well
Twink-try abd take it easy at work, sometimes my bump is sore as opposed to painful ive just put it down to a growth spurt
Poppyseeds- I have days where I could eat everything in site, its odd!
LP-my bump didn't really pop out until 22 weeks, it will happen soon
Samjh87-glad you had a good weekend
Mrs mack- will fly by for the scan now. Glad the pains have gone
AFM 24+5 today got my 25 week appointment later. Baby very active and wiggly.
Have a lovely day everyone
13/05/2013 at 10:58
Missed you duckford, glad your nights are done- when do you stop them I wasnt allowed to do them after 20 weeks. Hope you have a lovely day
13/05/2013 at 12:36
On here late today and I'm on my phone so can't do personals.
Had a busy weekend away at a wedding. Now back home to mountains of washing and ironing.
It's hail stoning here today so a day indoors I think.
Hope we are all well and had a lovely weekend
13/05/2013 at 16:12
Twink – hope you’ve got a bit more energy now and work isn’t too manage. Make sure the H runs around after you when you get home!
PoppySeeds – cramps are evil! No other word for it! Yay for baby getting more and more active – it’s amazing feeling baby more and more.
Little Pixie – I’m usually in bed by 10, which made me extra impressed, though I did have to have a nap yesterday evening as I was struggling. Your bump will ‘pop out’ when it’s good and ready!
Sam – I won’t tell on you to your H, don’t worry! Yay for lovely weekend – boo for being back at work.
Mrs Mack – sssshhh, don’t say scary things like ‘single figures’!! I’d imagine it’s just one of those delightful side effects of pregnancy that people never worn you of. 3 weeks will start to fly by…
Popcorn – thanks, will see you over there soon!
Duckford – how weird and rude that baby then moved so you couldn’t catch the photo! Hope you’ve enjoyed your lunch.
Noodle – how was your appointment?
Jellytot – boo to the washing, I’ve given up on ironing (we only iron H’s shirts anyway) but I can’t get the board out, it’s too heavy for me!
AFM – I’m back from the MW, I’m measuring spot on average for my bump – so to all those people I’ve seen that have been saying I’m huge! I also remembered to record baby HB for H, clearly knew I was recording it so it’s daddy could here, because it started getting excited! So, thanks for keeping me sane in 2nd tri, hope the rest of your 2nd tri run smoothly and I shall see you soon in the scary 3rd tri. Eeeeek!!
13/05/2013 at 16:33
JT-thats the worst thing about going away!
Sapphire-glad the appointment went well, I bet your H will be pleased to hear it!
Just back from my appointment all ok, my bump is measuring 3 weeks behind did anyone have this? Im not too worried as im sure it will catch up but would be interested to hear if anyone else had the same
13/05/2013 at 16:44
Sapphire- great news about measuring spot on. Good idea about recording HB for H! Must remember to do this if H can't make it to any appointments (although he is adamant he isn't missing a single one!). Good luck in 3rd tri! Very exciting times.
Noodle- How many weeks are you now? Can't offer any advise as I haven't had my little bump measure yet!
