Just a quick one from me as I need to get to work, busy day ahead - my last day of the week but suspect I'll be bringing stacks of stuff home. All good with baby.

Morning Marogt, have a good day!
After my moaning about not much movement I had quite a bit yesterday! I definately think its moved though as I've gone from sharp low kicks to high dull thuds, wish you could see inside through a little window! H put the car seat isofix stuff in the car last night but it doesnt seem to fit right, its really wobbly, so weve got Kiddicare phoning back today. Why is nothing straightforward??

Hopefully u don't bring to much home have a good day.
Afm scan on Thursday cant wait :-D
I think I have felt movement's last few days but not sure its like I have trapped wind only these are shorter n less harsh but they definitely feel like a whoosh lol I expected them to feel all feathery lol
So question have I got wind or are these movement???
Hi to all that follow xx

Sorry for my absence over the weekend, I can only get on on my phone over the weekend and I don't like to not do personals.
Margot - Lucky you having today as the last day of your week! Hope you don't have to bring too much home with you though!
PC - Glad to hear your starting to get lots of movements. We borrowed an isofix base from a friend to try after reading online that it wouldn't fit in H's car despite his car having isofix. It did fit but was a little wobbly, the person who lent it to us advised to make the pole longer than you need it which should help secure it.
Boris - I think they sound like movements, I'd describe mine to start with as the feeling like when you have a bit of an upset tummy and its gargling but without the noise!
AFM - Not much to report baby wise, started aquanatal last night which was nice and met a lady in my village who's due 2 weeks after me so will be nice to have a friend around. Work are looking for the temp who will replace me at the minute and I hate it! he he! They're making me do the interviews too which I really don't want to do. I'm worried they're going to prefer my temp and won't want me to come back or else they'll be really rubbish and I'll come back to a mess!
Have a good day!
16/04/2013 at 08:57
Margot - hope you have a good day
PC - yay to feeling movements, hope you manage to get the isofix sorted
Boris - I used to describe the movements as like little bubbles popping in my tummy. Not long til scan time!
TT - that's good you've met someone due around the same time. Most of my mummy friends are from aquanatal! Really should see if there's a class on near me now as I've moved house and don't know many people round here
AFM - nothing much to report. Phoned in sick again today. Utterly exhausted and my back is still sore. Going to doctors on Thursday to get a sick line for a couple of weeks hopefully. Nothing planned today, weather rubbish :-(
Hi to all that follow

Margot - hope your day is ok and you don't need to bring too much home with you.
PC - glad you are feeling more movement, hope you get the car seat base sorted out.
Boris - I have no idea what movements will feel like but it sounds like it could be the start of them for you, how exciting!
TT - Nice that you've met someone near you who is due around the same time. I'm sure your work won't prefer your temp :)
Ally - sorry you're feeling so bad, that's rubbish. Take it easy x
AFM - have started being sick after eating, like I've overeaten and there's not enough room. It's hard because I'm flippin' starving! But I just can't keep it down properly. It's not all the time, just when I eat a main meal so I think it's on to grazing throughout the day. I think I have started to sprout a little bump too, about time!
16/04/2013 at 09:27
Margot - dont bring too much home with you.
PC - Good to the movements but not for the car seat. Hope Kiddicare can sort it for you.
Boris - I think that sounds like the start of some movements to me - how exciting for you.
TT - nice to meet someone close in due date to you.
ally - hope you feel better soon xx
PopC - that is not nice. I hope grazing throughout the day helps.
AFM - I am starting to feel more and more movement now, not proper kicks yet but movement and I dont know why it has taken this long seeing as we have seen the baby on screen but the fact it was so unexpected, but omg, i'm pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
16/04/2013 at 10:26
Margot hope work goes quick
PC what a pain, lots of time for it to get sorted though. Glad baby is moving more
Boris sounds like movements to me!
Twink nice to meet someone else due around same time. Boo to the temp
Ally hope your feeling better very soon, poor you
Pop ah yes been there with the vomiting after eating. Grazing is the way forward sadly
Poppy yes your definately pregnant! Eek!
AFM H finished painting nursery yesterday, carpet is going down as we speak. Won't be putting furniture in for a while yet (when we actually buy it!) enjoying our time off and looking forward to our weekend away! Baby had lots of movement yesterday, must be asleep today hardly felt anything
16/04/2013 at 10:42
hey all nothing really to report here other than stretch marks have appeared on my stomach, just 2 but Im a bit gutted hehehe. hope everyone is doing well. xxxx

First time on the 2nd tri thread. I have been completely awol for a few weeks. I have no idea why but I am back as a 2nd tri lady and going to get stuck back in!
Margot – Glad all is well with baby. Hope you don’t have to bring too much home!
Porkchop- Glad the little one is moving more. Hope you get car seat sorted out!
Boris – Not long to wait til scan. I’m still early days of second tri so had no movements yet, can’t help on that front, but can’t wait to feel it!!!
Twinkletoes – worried about this at my place too, in case they hire a super administrator and don’t want me back hehe.
Ally – sorry to hear you are suffering. Hope you are feeling better soon!
Popcorn – Good idea to eat less more often to see if that helps. Fingers crossed that works for you!
PS – exciting times feeling baby move more!
Duckford – Glad to hear nursery is coming along. Hope you enjoy the rest of your time off!
Luna – boo to stretch marks, but all part of baby making I suppose right?
AFM – I am 13+3 so officially 2nd tri yes? Still being sick in the mornings but not feeling as bad generally throughout the day. Had my scan and got and official due date of 19 October. Scan was amazing, baby was kicking and waving and moving about everywhere! will certainly feel that if it keeps up that level of activity hehe. Now patiently waiting for next midwife appointment in 3 weeks to see if she will listen to heartbeat. Still waiting for bump to appear too!
16/04/2013 at 11:12

porckchop - annoying about your carset
borris- EEEEK scan week! hope they ar emovements how exciting :)

16/04/2013 at 11:57
Margot, have a good day at work!
Porkchop, Saw your post on your car seat. My H has an audi A3 so wondering how that will go now. Not getting car seat delivered until June though. We might get the base from somewhere which fits them for you (Halfords maybe).
Boris, Eeee, 2 days til scan day! Definitely sounds like that’s baby moving. If it’s not a feeling you usually have then chances are it’s baby.
TT, Glad you had a nice time at aquanatal. I’m planning to start a class next Monday! Think it’s always going to be difficult knowing you’re being ‘replaced’ for a year. I’ve been pretty unmotivated in my job for a while so definitely think the cover will do a better job! Ooops.
Ally, hope you feel better soon and the sun appears where you are. Lots of rest and treats for you.
Popcorn, that doesn’t sound good. I’m noticing I’m getting very overfull now after just a normal portion. Disappointing as less room for dessert!
PS, haha, yes, you are pregnant!!
Duckford, hoorah for finishing the painting! It’s lovely to see things moving along
Hi Luna, get moisturising!
Mrs Mack, welcome to 2nd tri! Glad the scan went well. Hope the MS eases soon
Twink, I was def bigger at night than in day for a long time. Can’t really tell the difference now though. Not long til scan!
AFM – Been to midwife appointment this morning. She was much more on the ball than usual and answered my questions without me having to even ask them! Heard the heartbeat for first time which was lovely. She thought he was awake and moving around. He kicked me a few minutes later so must have been right.
16/04/2013 at 12:31
Margot – hope you’re having a good day and you don’t bring too much work back with you.
Porkchop – how freaky would that be, if there were a little window you could peek through?!
Boris – just a few more sleeps until you get to see baby again! My MW is encouraging and said, if you’re having to question if it’s you or baby – assume it’s baby.
Twinkletoes – that’s nice to have met someone so close in dates.
Ally – hope the day off gives your back a chance to rest and you feel better soon.
Popcorn – not nice, I hope the little and often technique helps you.
PoppySeeds – I do this! It’s not that I forget I’m pregnant, but have the odd moments when it really hits me that I am.
Duckford – all sounds like it’s coming along with the nursery. Enjoying the time off together, sounds brilliant!
Luna – boo to the stretch marks, hopefully they’ll calm down, if not they’ll just be your sign to show you’re a proud mummy.
Mrs Mack – welcome to 2nd tri! Glad all went well at scan.
Twink – why do our bumps do that do you think? I felt massive last night. It’s weird how tight it goes.
Pirate Wife – yay for your midwife doing a good job today and getting to hear the heartbeat. I love it when people answer your questions without you having to answer them.
AFM – 24 weeks today!! Otherwise, not a lot to report. Got the MW tomorrow, need to remember to write a few things down, if it’s not written down – I’ll forget to mention it. Hopefully will find out when I’m having my anti-D jab done, as I’ve not heard anything yet and I’ve a feeling I have to go to the hospital for it.
16/04/2013 at 12:34
PW - glad your MW was better today. Forigve me if I'm being patronising but you'll need to get the specific base for the carseat so it'll depend on what seat you get if you can get the base at Halfords. I think the leg on the base is dodgy, we'll see later hopefully.
16/04/2013 at 13:04
PC, no worries :) We've got MaxiCosi Cabrio I think so pretty standard. Think the isofix or family fix both fit H's car. Did check on website, but it's a good reminder to check again before we head off.
16/04/2013 at 13:06
Is anyone else totally exhausted? I feel more tired now than I did 1st tri. Prob not helping that I have a 3 and 1 year old to look after but I am lacking the energy to do anything at the moment :-(
16/04/2013 at 13:50
PS - nice to be having movement :)
Duckford - must be so exciting to have finished painting - sorry if you've said before but what colour have you opted for?
Luna - boo to stretch marks :( hope you get away with just a couple
Mrs Mack - hello! it's nice to have someone that I remember from the 1st tri thread on here :) Glad your scan went well.
twink - I'm a bit like that, I blobby bump during the day but look much bigger at night!
PW - ah lovely that you heard the heartbeat, glad your appointment went well. It is annoying about getting full before you feel like you've finished eating, I might start having dessert first - priorities and all that!
Sapphire - yay 24 weeks!! :)
Ally - sorry that you're feeling so exhausted, I still am too so I don't know how you manage to cope with tiredness and looking after your little ones, you're a hero! I guess just try and rest whenever you can x
16/04/2013 at 16:39
Just popping on quickly to say. Hello. At work on my phone when I should be doing well, work! Told the children in class this morning that I'm having a baby. Can't hide it anymore and want the children to know before the parents. They were either pleased or didn't care. Got asked a few questions, if its a boy or girl, what we are going to call it,eetc as well as how do you know you are pregnant, do you want to be pregnant and to get pregnant a man has to help a bit doesn't he?!
16/04/2013 at 17:29
Sorry I'm too late again today.
I went to my cardiac appointment today, i do have atrial ectopics (a random extra beat followed by a deliberate missed beat to catch up) but they're not worried because my heart is fine.
In laws have been at mine today with hubs decorating, should be interesting when i get home...
