Morning all, hate Monday morning! This weekend has felt really long though which is nice. H managed to feel the baby move last night which was lovely :-) He's now gone to Scotland for work until Thursday, I hate it when he's away :-(
How is everyone?

I've been sooo busy, not been on here for weeks! All well this end and on the countdown to find out what we are having :o) 2 weeks n 2 days to go - I cant believe I'm already 18+ 3 already - it really has flown!
Hi to all who follow - have a fab day xxx

How lovely for your H BE to feel the baby moving. I hate it when my H is away too, I hope it goes fast.
Weemee, not long until your next scan, how exciting!
AFM, I feel like a broken record, I'm still exhausted! The inlaws being here all weekend really wore me out, I was a wreck yesterday! Nothing to report baby wise.

BE - arrr how lovely for your H
Hi Weeme, wow how are you so far along already? Almost halfway!
Imp - back to work for a rest then?
AFM feeling very chuffed with myself after yesterdays endurance ride. Feel asleep on sofa watching F1 last about half 9, mimoved to bed at somepoint, and woke this morning feeling fine. Hurrah. Doing it all again Sunday but with the addition of a Bon Jovi concert on Friday night too. Eeek! Have felt a few fluttering kicks from bubs too, which lovely - and much earlier than last time (am 14+5)

BE- It's lovely for your H to feel baby. Hope Thursday comes soon for you!
Weeme- I'm finding that it's flying too. Not long to go now to find out what team you are on.
Imp- Hope the tiredness passes soon. Try and take it easy this week and have plenty of early nights!
AFM- H felt baby again last night. He is normally too impatient but I made him sit with his hand on bump until she kicked. He let out a little 'Oh!' when he felt her haha. Had a lazy day yesterday and I am trying to book Tuesday, Wednesday off work so I can have a little break. Going to find out how many holidays I have left too so I can start sorting my maternity leave out. It can't come soon enough!

Horsefan- missed you there. Glad you are feeling fine after yesterday. I really need some of your energy! I feel fine doing day to day things but think I would collapse if I even tried everything you have got going on! haha

HF, it really is back to work for a rest! You are one busy lady, I've no idea how you do it all!
Sam, how lovely that your H got to feel her, I bet it's an amazing feeling!

BE – Great about hubby feeling baby move….mine couldn’t for ages but now his hands are never off my belly haha.
Weeme – exciting times. Hope baby behaves and you manage to find out the gender in a couple of weeks!
Imp – Hopefully you will get a bit more energy soon. I certainly did after about 16 weeks…..hang on in there!
HF – Yay for feeling first flutters!
Sam – I know what you mean about ML. I feel like I’m just going through the motions. It’s nice to have plenty of holidays to use up though! I’ve only got 8 full weeks left of work til I finish, got holidays booked in for the rest of them!
Chimp – nice to see you. Hope time flies til scan day!
AFM – nothing much to report really. Exciting that my ticker in my phone app now reads 15 weeks to go, time is flying in! We picked up cot mattress yesterday and the wallpaper has been delivered so need to get cracking on her nursery.
Kicks and wriggles are getting stronger and more regular, and I can now tell that she favours the left hand side of my body where she seems to dig herself in every now and then haha.
Got yet another scan on Wednesday, just a follow up from the spine scare episode so should hopefully be a quick and calm appointment!

BE your lucky h, he must have been so pleased!
Hi Weeme, notlong until your scan now, how exciting!
Imp im not surprised your knackered, you had a busy weekend!
HorseFan- glad you have recovered from yesterday! You'll have to store up some energy for this weekend!
Sam, fingers crossed you can get a few days off!
AFM- This is my week off before starting my new job! Got some plans towards the end of the week but have a couple of days of no plans! My to do list today consists of emptying the dishwasher and as it's sunny and going to do some washing and get it on the line! Im on 'flutter watch' hoping to feel bubba move about soon. Its not helping though that my tummy is still not happy ith my aftr Saturdays curry. no idea if I can feel baby flutteres or if its just my gut! :-)

Hi Mrs Mack- which wallpaper did you get?! Ive seen some really cute paper in B&Q with owls on that I quite like!
01/07/2013 at 10:01
We got the mamas and papas scrapbook wallpaper in pink. I loves it!
01/07/2013 at 10:52
Forgot to say, Good Luck Penny with your first day at the new job!! Let us know how it goes telling you new boss the big news!!!
01/07/2013 at 11:02
Mrs Bass- Enjoy your week off work! I know which wallpaper you mean in B&Q and it is lovely. Good luck with baby watch. Once you start feeling movements it won't stop :) It's super lovely!
Just found out that I have 13 days holidays left. I can use 10 days up to finish on the 2nd October at 36 weeks and then that leaves me with 3 days to take until then. Also, only 14 weeks until maternity whoohoo.Looking forward to a few days off work this week and spending some quality time with H :)
Penny- Good luck today! x
01/07/2013 at 11:47
That's good new Sam, especially that your H has time off too. Unfortunately my H is on a training course all this week, would have loved to get a way for a few days!
Ive decided that im going to sort through all my clothes today, see if i can take some to the charity shop before the move! I am however still sat on the sofa in my PJs!

Hi all, no time for personals today unfortunately as in at work on my lunch break. Might get back on later. So 22 weeks today, oh how the time is flying. We went to kiddicare and mother care yesterday. Spent a small fortune on baby things but in starting to feel a little more organised now. We ordered our pram. Went for the babystyle oyster. We also got some bambino mio cloth nappies, which in very excited about! Hope your all okay. X
01/07/2013 at 13:20
Oh and mrs bass, i have that wallpaper. Its lovely. Hopefully going to put it up in the next couple of weeks. They have a matching ceiling light and lamp as well. X

Hi everyone, sorry can't do personals as am on my phone - not sure on the rules on internet usage at the new place yet! It's all going very well so far and I told my line manager my news. She said congrats and asked how many weeks, then said she will tell the MD. I explained that I didn't know when I took the job (ahem) and that I've only just had the scan. Hopefully its all going to be ok......
01/07/2013 at 13:45
MS- I know what you mean about starting to feel more organised. It feels very real when you start getting everything together! I've been looking into cloth nappies more today and I have completely confused myself. Starting to drive me mad!
Penny- Sounds like they took the news well and I can't see it being a problem now! Glad everything is going well :)
01/07/2013 at 14:04
Penny Im so glad that it went well!!
Think i should just tell my new manager on monday. The longer I leave it, the more worked up I'll get!
mummysimpson- you will have to flash up the finished room!!
