Morning! I've been a bad md'er too and haven't posted for a while, sorry all!
Coco, how are you finding the new house? It takes a while to get settled doesn't it but you will get there. Lovely to feel baby moving so much isn't it!
Afm, 27 weeks now! Does that mean I belong in tri 3?! Not sure the official time to move, wow time is going fast now. Next on the agenda is pram shopping and decorating the nursery :)

Hey Coco and CO :)
Glad to hear bump is doing well Coco but sorry they are waking you up early!
CO can't believe you are 3rd tri already!! Enjoy all that shopping time x
Afm - I'm 20+2 now and my scan is tomorrow lunchtime. Lots of stress atm with consultants not being able to decide what to do with me in late pregnancy and giving birth but I'm back there at 28 weeks and hopefully I'll have some decisions then. Looks like it'll be pre planned c section though at between 38/39 weeks. Hope everyone is well x

Coco - hope you are settling in ok! Glad baby is active but not that they are waking you up so early!
CO - I never know when third tri is, I think its either 26+6 or 28 weeks - depends how you view it. If you do move over to third tri we'll miss you!
PS - good luck for your scan tomorrow.
AFM - felt good this morning, baby has been kicking away :) already cleaned the spare room this morning ready for moving but now I'm exhausted and finding it hard to breathe with the dust! So having a break before tackling our bedroom. The logistics of living here still, cleaning everywhere (including the carpets!) and having a cat is stressing me out. I just know what estate agents/landlords are like with trying to take money from the deposit! I don't want to give them any excuse lol.

coco - glad that baby is wiggling away in there. I hope that the bump party is moved to a more considerate time for you!!
CO - enjoy shopping! Do you have any ideas which pram you may go for?
PS - Good luck for your scan tomorrow!
Browny - take it easy with the packing! How long until you move?
AFM - back to work today :( lovely weekend up.north catching up with friends. Thought we had found a pram, but the reviews are not great regarding the wheels. A bit gutted tbh, as we both love the pram!
Hi to all that follow! Hope you have a great day! xx

Morning all, going to try and get on a bit more this week, stupid work!
Coco - nice that baby is moving lots but not cool that he/she is waking you up!!
CO - I think you're allowed to stay here til 28 weeks :) Third tri is where you have a BABY you know!
PS - wow, 20 week scan already! I remember you getting your BFP! Good luck lovely x
Browny - try not to go too mad, make sure you rest! Glad baby is kicking lots.
Boo - sucks being back at work! What pram is it you liked?
AFM I too am back at work and CBA to be honest! Felt a kick last night and there is definite movement in there :) I am being really naughty at the moment, and I keep ordering stuff online for baby. Must stop or else I will be bankrupt!!

Coco - it's great to hear baby is so active, not so great about his/her timing though! How are you settling in to your new home?
CO - I think 3rd tri might be 28 weeks but don't hold me to that! Do you have a particular pram in mind?
PS - I hope all goes well at your scan tomorrow. Hopefully the consultants can make their mind up soon so you know where you stand.
Browny - you have had a productive morning! Make sure you rest plenty too.
Boo - which pram were you looking at?
Gavi - you made me smile about your spending online, I've been pretty reserved so far. I think it's because I'm waiting to find out the gender :-)
AFM, I've been back to the GP this morning (I feel like that's all I'm doing at the moment!). I have a chest infection and have been told to rest. Got more antibiotics to take - I'll soon start rattling like a pill box. Really need to get F's feet measured but I think it'd better put that off until later in the week. I'm also guessing taking F swimming twice over the weekend wasn't a good idea either.

Boo - we move Saturday morning. Starting to feel the pressure now! Which pram are you looking at? What are the issues with the wheels? There are always negative comments from someone or another but take it with a pinch of salt. Unless, of course, it's a common complaint!
Gavi - movements are lovely :) what have you bought? Let's have a flash ;)
WG - sorry to hear you aren't well. Get well soon x
22/04/2014 at 15:04
Gavi - yay to feeling baby move! Its hard not to buy stuff too, especially when everywhere seems to have sales on!
WG - take it easy! You've had an emotional couple of weeks, no wonder your body is feeling run down. Take some time to rest and recover xxx
Browny - The move will all come together. Are you doing it all yourselves or have you got a van taking all your stuff up?
The pram we love is the silvercross wayfarer. The complaints have been about the wheels, great for urban use but not great on any other surface. My best friend has offered us her bugaboo gecko, its in perfect condition. So thats one to consider too.
22/04/2014 at 16:51
Browny - I bought a couple of sleepsuits and a big muslin for swaddling, feeding etc
Boo - have you heard of the Silver Cross Pioneer - it is due out soon, and has sturdier wheels than the Wayfarer (the reviews for that put me off too)
22/04/2014 at 17:10
Boo - I haven't looked at that pram so can't really comment. I hope you find something you like soon.
Gavi - that babygrow is lovely :) and that picture of the baby being swaddled is so cute!! :)

Coco that's great about a wiggly baby, shamthough.at 5:30am!
Co I think 3rd tri is 28 weeks, but not too sure. Sounds like you've got lots of fun shopping to do. I love buying baby stuff.
PS good luck tomorrow with the scan. Why are they not sure what to do with you?
Browny another wiggly baby! That's good. Definitely take it easy with the cleaning. I know what you mean about estate agents/landlords. Ours tried to take £40 for a dirty washing machine drawer! Luckily for us they didn't check it before the new people moved in so we said they couldn't prove it was us. Next time I made sure that the drawer was spotless!
Boo good to hear that you had a nice weekend. Can't really comment on the pram, but as gavi said if a different model is coming out that might be better, or do they do different wheels?
Gavi that's great that you felt a kick! Where did you get the large muslin from? I'm looking to get a couple for feeding.
WG hope you feel better soon and the antibiotics kick in soon.
Told people at work today and made a few cry! It was lovely seeing their reactions and they were all really pleased. Rest of the staff will be in tomorrow so I can tell them. Didn't Mind being back at work, was just planning though

Hi all! I've been away do long!
Coco- are you all moved in? I'm a bit behind! Hope you get unpacked soon, all a bit chaotic at first isn't it?
Hi CO, wow you're so far along now! Exciting!
PS hope the scan goes well. I loved our 20 wk one, much clearer to see and the scan lady went through all the info and showed us lots of things like the spine, etc, it was great to see so much detail.
Browny, hope you get the packing and cleaning done. Good luck for the move.
Boo, bad news about the pram, but glad you had a lovely weekend.
Gavi- cute buys!
WG, hope you feel batter soon. When will you find out the gender?
Bunny- it's lovely to tell people isn't it?!
AFM- we had a lovely week in France, relaxing and sunning ourselves, few galleries& we hired bikes to cycle round which was fun. Then a big family get together with H's family yesterday& Sunday- 20 people!! Now I'm busy trying to get my next MA assignment finished for Friday. Have done 1000words, 3000 to go. Be glad to finish this module as I don't think much of the tutor. Regularly feel baby move now, feels like muscle spasms! We didn't find out the gender at the 20 wk scan, H decided he couldn't not tell me so opted not to find out either. He is more relaxed now we've had two scans& is starting to talk about names& what we need to buy and stuff. Im so pleased as now we can share ideas more without him stressing. And finally my grandmother has come through her op to remove two growths. Still will be weeks before she is back to normal, and we're still waiting to find out if the growths were cancerous or not but at least she is through the first hurdle.
