I caught up with a group of friends last night. There's 6 of us and we've all known each other for years and years but through different means. A couple of us would meet up and realise we knew the same girls and it has ended up with 6 of us who meet up for dinner every 3 months or so (though we may catch up individually in between) and they are all so lovely! One had guessed I was pregnant and one (though I hadn't confirmed it) knew because my 7 yr old nephew blabbed!
I didn't really get to do a big announcement because another of them announced hers first!! Completely unexpected, by her and us ha ha. She's due 9 days after me. I'm so excited!!!! Our mum met in hospital when they were expecting us. We went to the same pre-school and primary and then were best friends for a while in secondary even though we weren't at the same school. We started hanging out again about 4 years ago and get on so well, it's brilliant to have a pregnancy buddy! Between the 6 of us we've got 15 kids and 2 on the way. It was a great evening. I was dreading going because I felt so rubbish but I'm so glad I did!!!

Morning counter :)
I am good actually sleeping really well yay!
Not really much to report still counting down my days to the scan!
My parents are pretty excited and dads going OTT on buying baby stuff.. He picks up bits and bobs when he goes shopping lol.. Since last week I have 7 packs of nappies, baby wipes, cotton wool, lots of other bits which I have forgotten he's currently looking at sterilisers lol! My sister has 2 girls and he's now thinking if we have a boy he's going to have to buy lots if boy things! To play with when we visit! I think he's very excited haha!

CC that is super-cute! I'm a bit envious, wish my folks were a bit like that! Good news about the sleep, everything seems easier if you've slept well x

My mums is a massive worrier and she's worrying about us thinking she and dad are taking over and interfering ( she had this thing with my sister and her hubby when the 2nd niece was born) so it's made her paranoid! It's nice that they are excited but they love their grandchildren and children too haha!

Lol i might change as there as been some confusion over my dates could be anything to 6 weeks further on than this - midwife said i just had to wait for scan hoping im only 9 weeks just now though - gives me longer to sort house and save pennies lol x

Mad day yesterday. It was open day at school so had to work. Today I'm going to ride this morning the late lunch at my parents for my sisters birthday. I think I'm beginning to feel less sick all the time which is good news. Last week in 1st tri which is very scary!! Hope you're all feeling well and having nice weekends.

Yesterday I went and collected my bargain eBay cot (£15) and caught up with an old friend (worked for me in my last job and is a fabulous girl) and she's very happy and loved-up which is great. Went to bed in the afternoon as felt like crap. Nice evening with hubby with a disgustingly unhealthy takeaway, Strickers and giggling until we were crying.
Today, feel like crap again but am in the office. 2 of my girls are in too, so it's a little nicer than being alone. I have bribed them with a short weekend day (empty building, no phones) in exchange for a day's holiday when they most want it (Christmas or summer) and they were up for it. Hoping to catch up with a friend tonight, hubby is at work and Harry *should be* doing homework!
My symptoms are very manageable currently which makes me very, very happy. Perma-nausea, but low-level, I am eating more like a normal person now and my horrific weight gain has stopped. Am constantly tired but sort of used to it now, and VERY sore boobs and nipples, but it's only really a problem when they're not tightly wedged in to a bra!
