Thought I'd start the thread today as I'm in work ridiculously early!
Hope everyone is well, mid week already :)
My ASOS delivery arrived last night and it all fits! The only thing going back is the dress as it looks horrible on. Pleased to have some more clothes to choose from. Need to try and stop spending money now as I'm becoming increasingly worried about how we will cope financially whilst on mat leave. Depressing to think that I'm the best off money wise now than I'm going to be for several years!!

Its fab having clothes that fit. What did you buy?
Had our scan yesterday and everything looking good. It's possibly a she but we will find out next week as we have volunteered to be a dummy for cardiac training scan :-)

I'm on early starts forever more now Jude is at school, first full day today. We're dressed so its a good start! I've been buying quite a few maternity bits, 6m is quite a long time to go if you're not feeling comfortable.

Ck - I bought 2 tops, a jumper for work and some trousers which are black and floral (they sound horrible but look nice on!). I wondered why you were having a cardiac scan, good opportunity to see baby again!
Isis - You don't sound like you enjoy early mornings Isis!! I know, I refuse to wear horrible ill fitting clothes for months!

Morning ladies, Mrs V glad the clothes were all nice (apart from the dress!) I strung out buying mat clothes for ages but it was becoming a pain and I caved in about 15weeks I think.
CK fab news y'day, I guessed pink from your scan pick (means nothing though!!) I was worried about your other scan but that's good it was just a volunteer thing!
Isis I hope J gets on ok today for his full first day.
Not much from me, I think my baby is anti sleep every evening! From about 7pm it's moves moves and then as soon as I go to bed he goes even more active! I guess the broken sleep is great practice!x

MrsV glad to hear you got some fabby news clothes - it all sounds lovely!
CK - delighted it all went so well with the scan! Brilliant news and defo looks pink!
Isis - Hope J gets on well today!
MDD - I can't believe they say that wee boys are lazy in the womb! I think you have an athlete in there!
AFM - 15 weeks! Yay! Had a lovely time with my mum yesterday doing normal things like shopping and going out for a cuppa....and learning to knit in the M&S fitting room! Ha! What a pair we must have looked. Still waiting for the bump.....

Mrs V - you are in early!! I know what you mean about watching the pennies, Im doing the same, I spent a small forunte in H&M the otherday getting new clothes as im bord of the maternity stuff I have. I got stuff from their Basic range rather than their maternity range so i can wear it after, its all pretty stretchy!
CK- your scan pic looked fab! when is the cardiac trainning scan! hope you get confirmation on whether she is a she!
Isis- Did Jude enjoy yesterday afternoon?
missdeedee- it is good practice but id prefer to be storing up sleep!
sweetpea- happy 15 weeks! Ha ha, that knitting will come in handy! my mum said she was going to knit some bits for the baby but her friend said not to bother as she was awful at it and she should tell her friend what she wants and she'll knit it for her! I have a sneaky suspicion that was my mum's plan all along!!
I am knackered! So glad today is my last working day this week. I plan to do sod all tomorrow, may not even get out of my PJs! Mum asked if i fancied going to the Cake and Bake show at earls court on sat, the though of the journey there and then walking around all day really put me off the idea! I think they are sold out though so i think ive got out of it!
No more leg cramps but my calf still aches, espececially when i first got up this moning. Not sure if its from the cramp or my bruteish attempt to massage it!
Baby kicks have really died down. I was expecting them to get more often but its the opposite. I get a little concerned every now and then but I am still getting a kick or two in the morning and in the evening so I know every thing is ok. Baby must have found something more interesting to do in there!

Well it was awful, Jude had to be peeled off me :( the lovely teacher rang to say he was fine though so that's good. I'm just off out with my friend for lunch and we're going to mamas and papas for a browse lol

Mrs V - I know how you feel, I've been getting more worried about it but had a chat with HR today who helped me work out how best to maximise my annual leave useage and KIT days so I dont loose out.
CK - Glad the scan went well and you have another opportunity to see the baby.
Isis - Glad the school run is gooing well and he is settling in.
MDD - Does the movement wake you up?
SP - Happy 15 weeks.
Mrs B - That's great having a short week. I wouldn't bother getting dressed either, day time TV all the way.
AFM - I had a pretty good nights sleep last night but didn't want to get up this morning. Seems like its winter all of a sudden. Last day of work tomorrow before my day off. I would be excited but I've got sooo much work to do and no doubt I'll have to have amy blackberry with me all week :(
I spent £250 on Seraphine clothes yesterday because nothing fits any more and there is finally a bump which is sort of obvious now. Really got to stop spending now.
