Coco all the luck I can send for the haircut. I know how traumatic it is! Are you having a big party for O? How exciting and scary that he's 2.
I'm exhausted after trying to put the house back to normal after the flooring has been finished. Baby wise just the usual heartburn, sore hips and back, and tiredness. All made worthwhile by happy feet kicking away in there.
C has told me that he's got to go to Las Vegas with work when I'm 32 weeks pregnant, I'm not thrilled about it and we've had a bit of a row last night. Plus I'm now having to see if I can rearrange our nct classes as he'll miss them. Grrr.

Coco - Poor O! Good luck with the hair cut - my mum is a hairdressor so I am hoping because haircuts will be done by granny there will not be any tears or tantrums....am I being totally naive? Growing up & helping in her salon it broke my heart seeing all the little ones in such distress! Enjoy the party prep :)
Imp - Are you please with your floors? Glad happy feet is dancing happily and easing your pregnancy problems. I would not be too happy if my OH had to go so far at that time either, thats far from ideal. When its work its much trickier to get out of. How long is he going to be away for? Can he make sure he has no more trips for the remainder (and beyond for a while!)?
AFM - Nothing new to report, just tiredness as usual! Hi to all who follow.

Hello Sas, he'll be away for 5-6 days including travelling. He only started at this new company in October so he still feels as though it's difficult to say no to things. He doesn't do much overseas travel, it's just unfortunate that this one has fallen when it has. He hopefully won't have any more overseas travel for a while, but he will have nights away but only normally a max of 4 hours away.

Coco - glad O is better now after his nightmare. Sounds like you have a busy day ahead! Hope O behaves at the hairdressers for you. My nephew had his haircut last week by a mobile hairdresser and he was fine. He's had it cut before by his auntie, again will have been in a house. Maybe the relaxed familiar setting makes it less stressful? He is a bit of of girl though, liking his clothes and gets very excited about his shoes so maybe he was excited to have his hair cut lol.
Imp - have you finished sorting the house now? Hope so, but make sure you don't overdo it! Sorry to hear about your H, not great timing!
SaSaSi - hope the tiredness eases soon, even if its just to give you a small break before third tri symptoms kick in!
AFM - I had an ok nights sleep - read a bit before bed which helped relax me I think. I was only up 3 times to pee (modest amount for me!) my hips were hurting from the early hours but no shooting pains. Need to make a proper start on sorting the garage out today (its a tip!) which I'm not looking forward to. X

Morning all. A quickie while A plays.
Coco - good luck with the haircut, my dad gave A his first one and it was awful (wonky), he needs another but I've been putting it off! Hope you manage to get everything done x
Imp - oh no I'd not be impressed. Still, better 32 weeks than 38, hopefully if he does this one then he won't be asked to do another in quick succession IYSWIM.
SaSaSi - hope the tiredness goes away soon, where is the promised 2nd tri 'bloom'?!
Browny - glad your sleep was ok. Hope the garage-sorting goes better than expected! It'll feel good when it's done or at least you've made a good start.
AFM I'm knackered... A started crying around midnight and the plan was to settle him and go back to my own bed but he wouldn't let me go. Just wanted to fiddle with my hair and touch my neck ALL night. (He does have a double mattress on the floor, I wasn't hanging over a cot!) He mostly stays asleep while he does so, I think we need to wean him onto some kind of little taggie/soft toy etc but how?! Need to dig out the No-Cry Sleep Solution again as neither of us want to leave him to cry, but can't go on really. Most nights he's ok it's just some where he seems to need a bit of extra comfort and it'd be good if he could get it from a comforter rather than needing us. Baby girl is still quite quiet and bump hasn't grown but she did kick last night. Tried to get H to feel but he couldn't feel anything, never mind.

Morning you lovely lot, happy hump day.
Coco - how exciting for O's birthday - hope he is a good boy and gets his haircut with no problems.
Imp - glad the floor is lovely and Happy Feet is making you smile. Massive bummer about H's work, I'd be peeved too, but moreso as I love Vegas and want to go again! Hopefully it'll all be ok though x
Sasasi - sorry you're still tired, hope it eases soon.
Browny - make sure you take it easy with all this sorting out missus!
Saisi - sorry A had a bad night. No idea what to suggest, but I am sure someone clever will be along soon.
AFM - I am a very happy bunny as H got the new job he wanted! He is so chuffed. It's better pay, which will make life a bit easier when I am off, and better environment in general for him to work in. PG wise, nothing to report, feel a bit tired but nothing else really. Got midwife and consultant tomorrow, so hopefully get to hear the heartbeat tomorrow :)

Coco - Hope the preperation goes well and O's haircut is a success
Imp - very annoying about OH, How long will he be away for?
Sasasi - hope the tiredness eases up soon
Browny - be careful with the sorting out, make sure you rest lots!
Saisi - Sorry you had such a rough night, I cannot offer any advice to help unfortunatly as I have only just managed at 4 to get Molly into a very good routine with bedtime/sleep. Lessons have been learnt for next time!
Gavi - Fantastic news about OH job, really pleased for you. GOod luck for tomorrow with consultant and midwife
AFM: Had our 20 week scan yesterday and baby is doing well, very very active so it took a couple of attempts to get all the measurements required and then they could not determine the sex so that solved the argument of us finding out we had a lovely chilled out day, ordered some new accessories to go with the set we had for Molly for the nursery from M&P's and managed to get Molly some bargainous clothes in there too. Really haven't posted much in the last few weeks but I have been so manic at work I have just not had the oppertunity and there doesn't seem to be much activitly on here in the evneing anymore - good to catch up with you all though

Saisi - poor A :( hope tonight is better. Can't help on the comforter front, however my nephew uses a muslin as his comforter which will be a pain to phase out especially as my sister is pregnant again so Muslins will be around for a while to come!
Gavi - so happy for your H and glad it will make life easier for you when baby arrives!
Nina beanie - congrats on the scan! Lol at not being able to find out the sex and the argument being settled for you! Hope things settle down at work very soon x

NB - nice to *see* you again, hope all is ok. At least baby not playing ball saved any arguments. Make sure you take it easy at work.
