Morning 2nd Tri gang?
It's lovely and sunny here today, hope it is wherever you are too.
Just been offered a seat on the train for second day in a row, today's was a tater enthusiastic chap as there were at least 3 free seats so I just took one of those.
Had a strange night's sleep as I was waiting for a very important text (I'm BW's PP),alas not text yet.
Feeling loads of movements now, at least hourly. They still take me by surprise though, I really should get my head around the fact that I'm pregnant.
I'm starting the ball rolling with recruitment for my replacement today, meeting with lots of recruitment agents. I hate recruitment, it's tedious and takes so much time.
Good luck to Boris for the scan today.
Hope JB is doing ok

BG - Hope the meetings with the recruitment agencies go well and it isn't too tedious. It's great feeling movements all the time, I've had a leg or arm prodding me all morning lol
Nothing much to report here, waiting for the docs to open so I can get an appt and hopefully get a sick line
Hope everyone is well
18/04/2013 at 08:04
BG - hope the meetings go well.
Ally - hope you get to rest and GP signs you off.
Afm - had physio yesterday for my spd and sore back. Turns out my pelvis is buggered. I'm very sore today but hopefully sort itself out soon if I do all my exercises. Got D's swimming lesson this morning then a day of housework. Sun's out here too so hopefully get in the garden later.
BG, hope the recruitment process goes well and isn't too tedious and fingers crossed for a text from BW!
Ally, hope the GP is understanding.
AFM, looking forward to another fairly chilled day here. Loads of movements last night, some which made me jump, and lots visible from the outside which is pretty cool for this stage. I ordered some cloth nappies last night, think this is a new hobby!
Good luck to Boris for today, will keep my eye out for an update later, and hope JB is feeling better.

Daisy, missed you there. Hope the exercises help quickly, and enjoy D's swimming.

BG - hope the recruitment isnt too boring, we've advertised for mine now, not had a great caliber of candidate so far. I'm worried my replacement wont be 'right' and I'll lose my clients by the time I come back!
Ally - hope you get to the docs, sounds like you need some proper rest.
Daisy - I really feel for you,my friend has SPD and you dont realise how bad it can be until you see it.
Margot - Yay for movement! Did youget some funky nappies? There was a report on our local news last night about encouraging people to go for real nappies to save landfill etc.
AFM - H felt Bean kick for the first time last night finally! It took him pressing my belly quite hard for a while and I now have a sore tummy so he wont be trying again for a while! He was chuffed though! Cot arriving (again!) today and chest of drawers, then all we have to get is a chair, but we've seen one in Ikea and we're up near one on holiday in a week or so, so will pick one up on the way home.

Careful Margot. I've heard fluffy bums can be very addictive ;)
PC your H must be so happy. Hope delivery is right this time
18/04/2013 at 09:23
PC - I ordered two Little Lamb OSFA, one in turquoise and one in purple, and two Tiny Nippers, one in giraffe print and one in purple with white stars.
Daisy - it is already addictive! I'm trying hard to be good but there are so many good offers on as it's Real Nappy Week so it would be silly not to take advantage.
Off to town briefly this morning, Joshua has been invited to a Heroes and Villains fancy dress party for twins in his class and wants to go as Tree Fu Tom so I need fabric to create a costume!

Morning BG, Sun?! Definitely none of that here! What a lovely man on the train! How exciting waiting for BW’s text!
Ally, Hope the dr grants you the sick note
Daisy, Oh no, I hope the exercises help
Margot, I love seeing the movements on my tummy, it never gets boring!
PC, Your H must be thrilled! Sure he’ll be feeling it easier in a couple of weeks.
AFM – terrible weather here this morning, rainy and windy. Bit grumpy today – Uncomfortable sleep, grouchy H, and tram was very busy (makes me worry for my bump). Think it’s time to start wearing my ‘baby on board’ badge. I’m not doing very well at coming back to this thread later on (no signal on phone at work) so hello to laters & lurkers :)
18/04/2013 at 09:47
BG - great witht he movements :)
Ally - hoep you get your sick note & get some rest
Daisy - dont do too much. make sure you rest up
Margot - i am loving real nappy week lots of good deals. i've been given a lot of cloth nappies so im going to wait til twinklet arrives before i start buying any more just in care i dont get on with them
Porckchop - ahh excelelnt for your hubs
PW- hope your grump goes
AFM - i feel dreadful today. proper exhausted. been sick and want to cry. feel really weak and shakey :( rubbish nights sleep as it is blowing a gale here but its sunny and not raining so i guess that is a positive.
Good luck to boris for your scan. cant wait to see you saturday :)
18/04/2013 at 09:52
Sorry for not getting on yesterday, I was on a course all day.
BG - good luck for the recruitment today, hope you manage to get through it ok. I think mine will be given to someone internally and there's only one person I can think of that might apply which will narrow it down considerably!
Ally - hope you manage to get to the Drs and get signed off x
Daisy - sorry that your spd is so bad, hope the exercises start to work for you. Enjoy swimming.
Margot - that's so cool about the movements :)
PC - how exciting that your H got to feel the kick but sorry it's made you sore. Hope the cot arrives ok this time.
AFM - H and I sat down and agreed a bit of a plan for when we want to get the nursery done by, travel system ordered etc as I was starting to feel like everything was going a bit quickly and I was worried that I'd end up having the baby with nothing done! We have a plan now though which made me realise we have plenty of time. Midwife tomorrow, she said she would try and listen for the heartbeat so excited!
Good luck to Boris for scan x
18/04/2013 at 09:53
Oh dear, missed a couple!
PW - ah sorry you're feeling grumpy, feel better soon x
twink - oh dear, you don't sound very well, are you able to rest up today or have you got a busy one ahead of you?
18/04/2013 at 10:22
BG nice to know there are still some gentleman around
Ally hope gp sorts the sickness out
Daisy how awful, my friend had spd and I don't envy you at all
Margot enjoy your relaxing day, have you used cloth nappies before? I'd love to but H won't budge to the idea :-(
PC yay to H feeling baby! Hope cots ok today
PW hope your day gets better, nearly the weekend
Twink hope your feeling better soon
Popcorn exciting stuff!
Afm we went to ikea and got wardrobe and chest of drawers which H put up. Cot is at in laws, not keen to put it up yet but we did put up bear stickers.....think we got carried away! Won't be around over the weekend, it's our first wedding anniversary on Saturday and were off tomorrow for my surprise weekend away! Eek! H is giving nothing away so very excited!
18/04/2013 at 10:39
Back from docs with a 2 week sick line. I need it for the exhaustion, never mind my bad back. Been up since 5.30 and can't keep my eyes open :-(
18/04/2013 at 11:14
Hello everyone, I'm still at home but if I walk up or down stairs then I get really out of breath and dizzy so I am clearly still not right so it is just a case of taking as much rest as I can get. It's a good job we don't actually have to get much sorted for Noodles as I don't think I'd manage any shopping trips, at least I just need to send H up in to the loft. We've got most of it down now and just need to get out the pram & carseat.
Sorry for no personals but I'm on my phone but I have read them all. glad you have got signed off Ally, that must take a weight of your shoulders.
18/04/2013 at 11:21
im at work and as they dont pay off sick coz ive had too many sick days (6 in 12 months. none while pregnant) i've got to come in. :(
18/04/2013 at 11:25
I don't get paid for the first 3 days I'm off sick Twink, it sucks :-( can't go on my sickness record though if its pregnancy related illness thankfully
18/04/2013 at 11:30
