How are we all?
Another busy day here today, got toddler group Christmas party this morning, home for lunch, got some housework to do, then M has gymnastics this afternoon. Tonight H is out at footy so I'm going to get all the Christmas presents out and finish my wrapping. Baby seems to have changed position again and I'm getting big movements rather than kicks.
Can't believe it will be Christmas eve in a week, it's flying in!!
Hope everyone is doing well x

Weekender- enjoy the party...and wrapping!
AFM- we have a toddler group party today too, but it is the afternoon. Think I will pop to the shops this morning. A has her Christmas dinner at school today too - she is very excited, especially as they made hats yesterday! Had started to do a bit of a deep clean yesterday, especially after having so many people here at the weekend. Started it and my H said he would get the cleaner in who we have on an ad-hoc basis to do a once over of the house, she is coming tomorrow....bliss!

Ooh I wish my H would get a cleaner in Section4, although could do with someone to tidy and declutter too enjoy the party this afternoon xx

Weekender, 95 days on your ticker! Have a nice evening wrapping, I moan at all the wrapping but I kind of enjoy it too :)
S4 - deep clean. Oh my, that sounds lovely and perfect timing.
AR - that sounds marvellous, really fab :)
AFM, I appear to have 'popped'. Can no longer be mistaken for a fat lass, I look preggo from under my boobs right down now. And Baxter is kicking/punchng in all directions, huge spread of them yesterday evening, up high, down very low, left and right. It was lovely. Got a 2hr+ round trip tonight to pick up hubby's Christmas present. We banned Christmas pressies (£10 limit) but then I found this secondhand dressing table and it became my present, so for him (he's crazy about books) I got this Edwardian-style revolving bookcase for the lounge, I love them and there's a perfect spot for it. He's at work until 1am so I can get it home and wrap it without him having a clue. Plus we found out that the piece of carpet we ordered to have whipped for a rug for the lounge will be with us this weekend in time for everyone coming round for Christmas so I am a happy bunny :)

Weekender- Enjoy the wrapping! Enjoy those big movements.
S4- I am so jealous of your cleaner! Bless A, that's really sweet, hope she has fun.
AR- Sounds lovely and relaxing. We went last year and I love ducks so opened the door to feed them and they all came in the villa!
Counter- Is Baxter a contender for names because I really like it!? Glad you are getting lots of lovely kicks. Oh sounds lovely, very thoughtful gift!
AFM- Baby has moved position again I think as I seem to be getting boots in my bladder region. Also some seem to be hiting my lady parts I think?! Getting my hair done tonight so looking forward to that. I am quickly runnin out of clothes due to a big growth in bump so hopefully get some this week. Almost Christmas :)

Ha ha Bertie!! I LOVE Baxter, but hubby is so taken with Edgar and Wilfred. I might be able to get him to agree to it as a middle name, for either boy or girl. I know that sounds crazy but I just like it so much and I love unusual names (but traditional names, not made up names lol)
Funny you should say that about 'lady parts'! I am getting lower kicks than I ever remember getting from Harry, right in the pubic region, took me by surprise the first few times. Let us know what you buy, I need some inspiration for maternity clothes. Shopping bores me, I am better off knowing what I need then hunting for it!

Good morning ladies
Weekender- you do have a busy day, enjoy the party and eat some lovely party food
S4- I'm totally OCD and love cleaning but even I would relish a cleaner I'm so jealous
AR- 13 hours, I need to get myself down to center pacs haha
Counter- yay for he bump, give us a flash!!
Bertie- getting your hair done is always a nice feeling! Also I got a huge delivery yesterday from h&m in their sale, I got 2 pairs of leggings, 3 tops, a jumper, pair of jeans and a tunic top for £30
AFM- I'm off work this week so I'll be a bit quiet, however lots has happened.
Yesterday I ordered my new car but it's still being built so I can't have it until January.
I booked the gender scan for Saturday morning
And I finally had an nhs scan that was good! Yesterday was my skull scan to make sure the babies skull and brain had formed properly as they couldn't tell at 12 weeks
So here is 17 week old baby!

Ooh get you! With your new car and your new scan ;) Great pic!

Thats a good idea and it would be lovely to have it as a middle name as it has meaning and its unisex, bonus! The lower kicks feel a bit like a shock dont they! I saw her from my first 20 week scan right down in my pelvis, she must like it there!
Monnie- Lovely picture! all systems go pregnancy wise for you! Which car have you ordered? Good luck with the gender scan, how exciting!

I currently drive a 3 door fiesta, iv just ordered a 5 door one. My husband works for ford so I'm very lucky in that I get a new one every 9 months for a fraction of the cost.
