A late start to the thread today!
Well thank goodness that week is over! I am exhausted and cannot wait for no alarm tomorrow morning!
Hope you're all well, has anyone got any exciting plans?

Hope you have a lovely restful weekend. I'm working as usual doing lates today, tomorrow and Sunday so no exciting plans.
I had my first active birthing class last night (basically an antenatal class with yoga and relaxation, birth breathing and the usual birth 'education'). It was great and I slept really well last night after the yoga!

Imp - hope you get to have a lovely lay in tomorrow!
Ixia - yay for sleeping well after the yoga! Have you signed up for a course?
AFM - no pregnancy news really, other than another painful night with my hips and leg. Weekend plan entail seeing H's friends tomorrow night and then we're having some friends over on Sunday with their two kids so might go for a walk/picnic if the weather is reasonable! Also might head to JL either today or tomorrow to have a look at the Pacapod bag I'm considering and maybe another play with the pram we want! :) 19 weeks today! X

Imp, hope you have a lovely long lie in tomorrow x
Ixia, hurrah for sleeping well! Your class sounds great.
Browny, sorry you had a bad night with your pains. Fingers crossed for nice weather for your picnic.
AFM, I *think*, technically, that I'm third tri now, although I know there's some contention as to when 3rd tri actually starts. I'm going to be a coward and hang out here for another few days as all of the baby out vibes in 3rd tri scare me a little bit!
Hi to all who follow :)

Imp i know exactly how you feel. I am shattered already! Hope your day isn't so busy and that you have a nice relaxing weekend.
Ixia - the classes sound really good, are they separate to the NHS ones? I am assuming they are? I think I might buy some kind of yoga dvd.
Browny - sounds like a nice weekend planned and I hope the weather holds out for a picnic. What pram have you been looking at? And happy 19 weeks!
AFM - I have a meeting with the company that are taking over our department this afternoon so I have a good opportunity to ask why we can't transfer there when the work will essentially be the same. Hopefully I can come out of it with something positive but every meeting so far regarding redundancy etc has been borderline pointless. Final decision is due to be made end of the month though. Can't wait for the weekend as H isn't playing rugby so we can actually spend a Saturday together. Need to go and book viewings for more houses and hopefully catch up on sleep. I've been having really bad dreams all this week for some reason. Not good.

Fig - eeek 3rd tri!! You'll have a fair few from here following you soon so don't be scared!

Hi Ixia glad your class helped and that you slept so well. I always sleep well on a saturday after my yoga class.
Browny I reckon go and see the pacapod, I bet you'll love it. Your weekend sounds lovey, do you find walking irritates your hip/back/bum? Mine seems to flare up randomly with no pattern.
Fig, eeeek to third tri! I'll be moving up next week too so you won't be alone!
Jonesy have a lovely day tomorrow, I hope you manage to get some viewings booked. Good luck with your meeting too.

Fig-I was wondering when 3rd tri started! I'll follow you over there. I like it here-3rd tri seems scary!
The classes I am doing are through this company: www.thelazydaisychain.co.uk

I don't like posting on my tablet as I can't see the other posts very easily.
Browny and Jonesy hope you both enjoy your weekends!

Hi Everyone - have'nt been on in ages as work is mental and by the time I get LittleSue to bed I am nearly on my way to bed too!
I cannot believe how quick this pregnancy is rushing by - tomorrow is half way point - 20 weeks. My H has finally caught on that I mean it when I say at 30 weeks I cannot move or fix up a nursery so bless him he's starting to wallpaper # 2's room tomorrow! I have my next scan on Tuesday so I'm hoping we can get a ''100% girl (at the moment its 80% girl) so can paint it pink!! Baby is kicking A LOT which is nice and Little Sue got her first proper bike yesterday evening and after only 2 hours of practising is brilliant without stabilisers!!
Have a great weekend all

Fig - I take third tri as being from 28 weeks, but I know some do 26+6 don't they? Either way its exciting that you are almost there!!
Jonesy - we like the Britax Affinity. Good luck for the meeting, hope you get some answers x
Imp - if I do too much it flares up, but mainly its when I lay down on a night. I also get a trapped nerve which just depends on if I stand/sit at the wrong angle! I really want to go see it but we have too much to do at home today to go :( I just know I'm going to love it and want it!
Sue - good to hear from you. Nice that baby is kicking so much :)
Just ordered some boosters, reusable breast pads and some liners from little lambs as they have a sale on via fb. It also prompted me to look at wipes and I ended up ordering some from the nappy lady. So a productive morning! X

Afternoon all, happy Friday! I cannot be @rsed today!
Imp - have a nice relaxing weekend, sounds like you need it
Ixia - that class sounds lovely. I want to do something similar I think
Browny - sounds like a lovely weekend. What's your pram of choice at the moment? Hope the hip and leg pain eases. Your purchases sound pretty cool
Fig - 3rd tri is scary, don't blame you - it means you'll have a BABY. I think most people move over at 28 weeks
Jonesy - hope the meeting goes OK, and you can enjoy the weekend.
Sue - hope scan goes OK.
AFM - I am a bit tired but I think it's because I had a huge lunch! Nothing pregnancy wise to report - I think I feel the odd flutter but it's a bit early so might be in my head. Lots of lunches and dinners planned this weekend, but not a lot else - can't wait for a lay in tomorrow.

Hi all, happy Friday!!!!
Imp - Hope you enjoy a long lie tomorrow and manage to catch up on some sleep tonight.
Ixia - I hope you enjoy your class tonight. Sounds really good.
Browny - sorry your struggling with your hips. Sounds like you've got a nice weekend planned - hope you enjoy it.
Fig - 3rd tri already?!?! It seems so quick doesn't it??
Jonesy - hope your meeting went ok today. Have fun lining up those house viewings. Hope you get something soon.
Sue - lovely to hear from you. Glad all is going well and the baby is nice and active in there. Yay to getting the nursery done.
Gavi - your lunches and dinners sound very good. Hope you have a lovely time. It could be baby that you are feeling. Its exciting.
AFM - I'm so glad its Friday, its been a pretty hectic week. Good news is that I only have 2 days to work next week then I'm off for nearly 2 weeks. Yay!!!! I think I'm classed as 3rd Tri today but, like Fig, I'm a bit scared to move over. Not sure whether to leave it until after my holiday or make the jump in the next few days. Think I'll hang around here a bit longer if thats ok with everyone??
Pregnancy wise - Baby CA has been extremely active today which is so lovely. I want to stay like this forever!!!!

Hello ladies. Won't do personals as I'm so late to the thread but thought I'd pop in an say hello now I'm back from my lil caravan break in Devon. Hope everyone is well and I've not missed too much :) I got recognised by a stranger today as being pregnant (whilst desperate to use a toilet - staff member in the garage let me use their staff one once she spotted the bump!) - so feeling better about the fact I look pregnant and not just chubby as my H kept saying he couldn't tell either way!
