Busy day at work ahead here, plus a meeting tonight so this may be it from me today! All well generally, last week before Easter holidays which is fab, and two weeks today until our scan.

Hope you have a good day M.
I've spent half the night in the bathroom with D&V. Alex doesn't have it but I imagine he will be tomorrow which'll mean no nursery this week. I knew this would happen once I used up all my carryover holiday up! This also means I'm probably going to miss the last class of my photography course, which is the one I've been looking forward to most and have spent lots of time and effort getting my competition entry ready.
Overall, woe is me.

Margot - hope the day flies by!
BG - boo for D&V. I think all my family including me have it over the past few weeks, its pants! Have you told work yet? Did you get your bonus?
AFM - had a quiet weekend, H doing more DIY and working and me just pottering about and watching TV! Some of Beans kicks seem to be more kick like than flutter like, can only feel them very low down though but I guess that's my anterior placenta? Only 3 days this week and next as I took a couple extra days either side to use the last of this years leave. woo hoo!

PC - not told work yet, was hoping to get bonus fri pm but got a call from nursery and had to go home. Payday is Wednesday so I can definitely tell them then, if I make
it to work this week.
Enjoy your short week, is it a long weekend of DIY for you two?
Just been sick again. Makes me do glad I didn't suffer from morning sickness this time.

Well at least you dont have to hide it if youre at home! DIY for him, not me! I stay out the way and make tea on request. He's got to work over the weekend though so not as much time for DIY as he would like.

Margot - hope you have a good day lovely :)
BG- oh no :( you poor thing. hope you feel better soon
Porkchop - all sounding good :)
AFM - i've been to Amsterdam this weekend so wasn't around. was quite worried id be dead boring and not want to do as much or want to go to bed early...but i think that thought made me even more determined not to be. it was a great weekend. i didn't even feel pregnant. i felt fine as normal. my work skirt is now feeling a bit too tight. 4 weeks today til scan. i cant wait to feel some kind of flutter to know twinklet is there as at the moment i just feel totally normal. i know that 2nd tri is meant to be the best so i'm trying to embrace it...but its a little scary when you've had so many signs in 1st tri.
got my midwife appointment on Wednesday :)
Hope everyone else is ok :)

Margot, nice to have the easter break coming up!
BG, oh dear, keep your fluids up won't you! Gutting about the photography course, i hope you make it.
PC, i can feel my kicks low down too (posterior placenta) i think it's just because the baby is low at the moment. Enjoy your short week!
twinks, bought any maternity clothes yet - they're so comfortable!!
AFM, have my anomaly scan at 2.25, totally bricking it now, I'm so so worried about the baby. I don't even care now that because of this heart stuff i won't be in MLU, i just want baby to be well.
25/03/2013 at 09:44
Twink - get some maternoty clothes, you'll wonder why you didnt sooner!
PB - good luck this afternoon, as I said on FB most 20 weeks scans turn out fine xx think positive thoughts. I felt the same at mine and mine was late afternoon, waiting makes it worse!
25/03/2013 at 09:46
I know, hubs keeps telling me that - i just can't stop thinking about how we'd cope.
25/03/2013 at 09:49
Best of luck PB, hope the morning goes by quickly.
I'm trying to keep my fluids up, but my stomach seems to have other ideas. I'm praying Alex doesn't catch it now.

Margot – hope today doesn’t drag for you. Yay, countdown to the Easter holidays can officially begin!
Bridget – oh no, hope the D&V doesn’t stay around your house for too long.
Porkchop – well, you need to rest so it sounds like you’ve had a good weekend. And yay, for short working weeks.
Twink – so glad you had a brilliant time in Amsterdam! I know what you mean about the symptoms in 1st tri, hopefully you might get to hear the heartbeat on Weds that will be able to reassure you all is well.
Pombear – hope it all goes well at the scan this afternoon. Afternoon appointments are definitely worse, let’s your brain go into overdrive but just keep thinking positive!
AFM – had a lovely weekend just lazing around with H. While he sorted everything with the car out (it had it’s MOT, thankfully it passed, best do already had to get a new battery and light bulbs this month for it). Baby is definitely getting more active.. I ordered a maternity maxi dress from New Look last week and collected them yesterday. Anyone else discovered that pregnancy is giving them really obvious love handles?! It means I’m going to have to keep the size 14, even though the 12 fit better on my top half, always typical! I wasn’t a skinny minnie before but at least I could wear big pants to smooth my shape out. So, I'm wondering are you all just wearing your usual underwear still?
25/03/2013 at 10:37
Morning Margot, Hope your busy day goes well
BG, Sorry you’re ill. Rubbish that it’s ruining all your nice plans too. Hope you feel better soon and A escapes it
PC, sounds like a lovely weekend! Glad you’re feeling more kicks. Mine are usually very low down too and I’ve got placenta in the normal place. I think he’s still got lots of room so I guess just sits at the bottom a lot?!
Twink, glad you had a fab trip not ruined by MS. Hope you have a smooth 2nd tri! Won’t be long until you feel movements now!
PB, good luck for your scan. Let us know how you get on x
Sapphire, I’ve bought a maternity maxi from New Look too! Picking it up tomorrow. Wonder if it’s the same one (it’s one that comes in Jade, pink and black I think)? Oh no, is it going to make my love handles more obvious?! My app said it’s normal to put on weight around the hips in order to support the bump, and there’s nothing you can do about it, so don’t worry.
AFM – Well cat had operation on Friday to have some teeth out. Ended up having 12 out! Now he’s feeling sorry for himself not eating, so just hoping he picks up soon. I’ve been to dentist this morning too but luckily all okay! Baby is moving around quite a lot. Really enjoying feeling the movement, always makes me smile!
25/03/2013 at 12:18
Sapphire - I have gone particularly wide on my hips. One week they were normal the next I had sprouted love handles. I've always been curvey but now I have a litte shelf by each hip, looks even better when the knickers dig in!
25/03/2013 at 12:45
Margot, I hope the next 2 weeks go quickly for you, i think your pregnancyis going quick as i remember your bfp.
BG, sorry your ill, i had it before xmas and its awful, it didnt last very long so i hope yours doesnt. And I didnt catchit so i hope Alex wont!
Porkchop, enjoy your extra days off, any plans?
Twinks, Hope you feel more kicks soon!
Pombear, Good luck for your scan, are you finding out the flavour?
Saphire, yes pregnancy gives me love handles too.
PW, Hope your cat feels better.
AFM, nothing new on the baby front really, Hvae my 28 week midwife appt tommorrow, baby is kicking about loads as usual. Its starting to sink in that in 12weeks time im going to have another baby, feels like the time is flying and iv got nothing ready. Going to go shopping at the weekend and buy soe stuff for my hospital bag.
Just been sorting out my days holiday to use up at work before i start my mat leave.
Had quite a productive weekend, we pretty much finished sorting out the spare room, which had become a dumping ground, which means i can now sort out other things, felt like that was holding everything up.
lets hope this week goes quicklly, only 3 days left!!

Pirate Wife - yep, that's the dress! I got it in jade. I'll have to wear a vest top or something underneath to cover my bra, but other than that it's really lovely dress. I've already announced I'll be living in it when the weather arrives. The size 14 hides the love handles the size 12 kind of clinged to them! I've always been bigger on my bottom half though, so I always have to try both sizes for dresses.
Porkchop - glad I'm not the only one! That's exactly what seems to have happened to me over the past few days.
MrsClarke - that's an exciting but very scary thought 12 weeks...
So exciting, I've just found out my friend getting married in May is 14 weeks pregnant! :)
25/03/2013 at 15:53
Ooh I’ve bought it in Jade too! I was hoping it’d be nice enough to dress up with shoes/jewellery/jacket for a (fairly informal) April wedding? Even if not, it wasn’t expensive. Sounds like I may have to order a size up and try some different bra solutions though!
25/03/2013 at 17:57
Argh! My boss just delivered my bonus letter. Thankfully I didn't tell him there and then my news as when I got in an opened the letter, it was another manager's, not mine. I wish my bonus and salary was that big! He's coming back within the hour, I don't know if he's got my letter with him or not though.
On the plus side, not been sick since 11, and have drunk 3 pints of water since then. Might brave a cracker for dinner.
Any update from PB?
25/03/2013 at 18:02
***crash** hope PB doesnt mind me posting, am sure she will be on later, but scan went well :-)
25/03/2013 at 18:03
Thanks for the update Koobie, appreciated!
25/03/2013 at 18:25
Oh how frustrating BG, hope you find out soon what your bonus is. Not good giving you another manager's letter though!
AFM, busy day here. Sat down for the 1st time today it feels like. H has taken A to her dance class so I'm sat watching Fireman Sam with J! We got J's room painted and all the furniture sorted and I cleared out all the toys and tidied it up. Got all the last bits done to A's room like hanging her fairy lights and door hooks up. Done countless loads of washing, made dinner for the next 2 nights and have just shoved something in the oven for tonight and H is bringing chips home with him :-)
Babywise, nothing much to report. Feel really big now, my brother commented 'holy f**k' when he seen me yesterday and I told him I had 4 months to go lol. It's my 30th on Thursday and I'm having a night out on Saturday so hoping the dress I bought looks OK on.
Hope everyone is well
