Morning all, hope everyone is well this morning. Sorry not to get back to the thread again yesterday, I was so tired by the afternoon that I read but didn't have energy to reply.
Not a lot planned for today, housework this morning and will probably pop to my parents this afternoon for a bit as they are off on holiday tomorrow. Hoping that some more preloved nappies I've bought will arrive in the post this morning, although my collection already takes up two boxes so need to think more about storage! All well with baby, MW on Monday.

Great minds Margot. We both started a thread at the same time!!
Oooh more nappies. How many have you got now?
16/05/2013 at 08:10
Just saw your thread PS!
I've got 14 birth to potty size nappies plus 6 size 1s and 4 size 2s which I'm intending to use for night times. H says we have enough but he says this no matter how many times I explain the washing and changing logistics! I'd like to have about 20 for day time just to ease the washing pressure. How are you doing?
The sun is shining here and it looks like it will be a nice day, except for the rain this afternoon, oh well!
Baby is very active this morning and was last night too, kicks are stronger and stronger :)
i can't wait for the weekend to get here, I'm shattered!

Margot- I can imagine buying the nappies can get very addictive, there are so many cute designs
PS- nice to be feeling lots of kicks
AFM, hoping it stays dry so I can go out later. Two weeks until scan, starting to get nervous about it now. I've been feeling the odd gentle kick since 15 weeks but they are no stronger or more frequent than when I first felt them. I'm sure last time by now I was feeling them more often. I'm hoping its just the position of placenta.
I also don't feel like I've grown at all for a few weeks. But I think that's because I got a huge bump very quickly.
Hope everyone has a lovely day

Hi twink sorry missed you there, hope you have a nice day off with your mum x

Margot - hope you have a nice afternoon at your parent's and manage to have a relaxing day. I can see why the cloth nappies is so addictive, I have my Little Lamb ones now from the offer and they're just soooo soft I can't imagine using disposables now! Even H commented how much nicer they seem to be. I ordered a Bambinex all in one yesterday from Zulily as they were on offer. Not sure about how good it will be but was a good deal so thought I'd try it.
PS - Lovely to have such an active little wriggler in there. Not long til weekend now, have you got plans?
twink - sorry you're still feeling a little blue, hopefully a longer weekend will help x
JT - fingers crossed the weather stays good for you. I am the same with kicks, was feeling flutters for a couple of weeks that didn't change but in the last couple of days it's been feeling more like little nudges. I also seem to have had an overnight growth spurt after weeks of being the same so I'm sure it's on the way for you!
AFM feel like I look very pregnant today, bump is really out front. It's definitely helping my maternity jeans stay up ;) We've got a charity quiz after work today with a fish n chip supper which I'm looking forward to enormously! So between Mumdrum and swatting up I don't expect to get a lot of work done today! 5 days til scan...getting nervous now!

Margot- I'd say when it comes to washing you can never have too many nappies
Poppyseeds- Enjoy the sun whilst it's there
Twink - Hope you start to feel a bit more cheery soon
JT - Hope it stays dry long enough for you to go out.
AFM - Feeling sorry for myself today as i've got a cold. Not got much planned for the day. Went out for a coffee with my friend yesterday who has a 18mnth old and a 4 week old and she is already talking about having another! She is crazy! They are so cute though and she seems to have taken to being a mum so easily. Got my aquanatal class tonight but just going to see how i feel.

Missed you Popcorn - 5 days, you must be getting very excited about scan. Fish and chip supper sounds so good to me right now!
16/05/2013 at 09:15
It's so nice to have the sun out today, even if it doesn't look like lasting all day - definitely makes a difference first thing in the morning though.
Twink, take care of yourself and have a nice day with your mum tomorrow.
Jellytot, my movements didn't seem to get stronger for a long time despite starting really early but it turns out I have an anterior placenta, so that explains it. Baby is making up for it now though!
Popcorn, the nappies are gorgeous aren't they? Definitely addictive! Have fun at the quiz.
Mummysimpson, hope you feel better and can enjoy aquanatal tonight.
16/05/2013 at 09:17
M - I'm impressed with your collection already. I keep toying with the idea but have a horrible feeling I'd just stick with disposables then have a huge expensive pile siting there doing nothing. We'll see nearer the time.
pS - make the most of the morning sun
T - hope you feel better soon
JT - I had exactly the same thing around 18 weeks, hadn't grown much and kicks hadn't got any stronger, that's all changed post 20 weeks though.
PC - GL at the quiz, I love a good ole quiz!
MS - hope you feel well enough for aquanatal
AFM - still in sunny Spain, yep you read that right, SUNNY Spain! Had a lovely day down note coast with just H and A yesterday. Today we're having a lazy morning then after an early lunch heading down to a donkey sanctuary and then on to our favourite beach bar so H can enjoy a Guinness or 4 and A can play on the 'seaside'
Bump has been a little quiet the last day, still getting the odd movement though so not too concerned, probably heading for a growth spurt.
16/05/2013 at 09:49
MS - aw sorry you have a cold, hope you feel better. Give your class a miss if you don't feel up to it, no point overdoing it lovely x
Margot - it's really addictive. I must try and control myself until I've met up with my Real Nappy Guru friend, she's promised lots of advice!
BG - glad you're having such a nice time and that the sun has come out, I'm not jealous in the slightest honest! Maybe baby is enjoying the Spanish lifestyle and indulging in a few siestas? ;)
16/05/2013 at 09:54
Margot your getting a good stash of nappies now, I'm still in the undecided camp on whether to try them.
Poppy lovely to the strong kicks
Twink have a great day off tomorrow, hope your not feeling too blue for Saturday, I expect you to be on good form!
Jelly I don't think I grew alot between 15 and 20 weeks then 22 weeks I exploded. Not long till scan
Popcorn have a good quiz, hope you win!
Mummysimpson hope you feel better for aquanatal, I gave mine a miss this week as my swimming costume didnt fit!
BG you lucky devil! I don't think European posting should be allowed as its just been raining constantly here and were all fed up! Hope your enjoying the rest!
Afm I'm doing a short day at work this afternoon (just a meagre 8hrs!) which is a pain when it's forty miles away but the lie in was good. Feeling slightly less miserable than yesterday. Baby show tomorrow with H to look forward to. Duckling woke me up this morning doing baby aerobics was very cute, can't imagine him waking me up screaming in three months time is going to be as cute!
Have a good day all!
16/05/2013 at 09:57
Not much time for personals today ladies, just wanted to say hi.
Out for lunch with ladies in work later so hopefully I'm feeling better as I currently feel extremely sick, bad times!
Might get back later, hope everyone is good x
16/05/2013 at 09:58
P.S. Wooooooo my ticker works - AT LAST!!!
16/05/2013 at 11:53
Duckford - have fun at the baby show tomorrow. I wanted to go to the London one but I was only about 5-6 weeks pregnant at the time. Hope you find some bargains, are you looking for anything in particular?
Mrs Mack - hope you feel better for your lunch. Your ticker is cute, I might have to swap mine as I've just noticed I'm a cantaloupe and it's freaking me out a bit!
16/05/2013 at 12:11
Yeah I don't like that myself, I have a few fruit/veggy ones on my phone. I'm currently an onion according to one and a turnip according to the other. I'd say they were different sizes personally, very confusing! haha.
16/05/2013 at 12:17
