Morning, been a bad md'er recently and have hardly been on, sorry guys!
Anyways, coco, hope the rest of the move goes smoothly and that you don't over do things and get to rest! Any ideas yet on what decor you want?
Afm, 25 weeks now :) feeling baby move loads and love my bump! Can't stop eating though, I'm hungry allllll the time! Day off today so just chilling, might pop to the shops and stock up in fruit to snack on to try and fill me up rather than junk!

I've been awol for ages as find it hard to get on here during the day!
Coco -congratulations on your move!! You will feel amazing when you are all unpacked. It's also quite handy to be pregnant when moving as gets you out of the hard stuff!! I think listen to Pea and try to relax, less moving duties more project managing!
CO - long time no see!! wow 25 weeks - glad you have a chilled day planned
AFM - feel bubba move as well which is lovely feeling and think she was hiccupping or something last night as H could feel it as well! Chilled out day today and then tomorrow seeing my grandparents for lunch at my parents

Morning ladies xxx
Coco, hope the rest of your move goes smoothly and you get settled soon. Bet you can't wait to get a nursery all sorted :-)
CO I'm constantly eating too! Glad you're having frequent movements. I'm still waiting for mine to be more than the occasional flutter.
CeeJay, have a lovely family lunch today xx
AFM, sorry for no recent update. Consultant was a bit stressful. They are concerned about a fibroid again, just when I was starting to relax. One has moved low towards the cervix and may block baby's exit or restrict growth. They are asking me to consider an elective section, which is the last thing I want really. My plan was initially home birth although I accepted a while ago that it was unlikely due to risks with fibroid, but even in hospital I was going for meds free hypnobirth. I need another scan at 28 weeks so until then I need to try not to worry.
In happier news, I had an amazing day yesterday. Popped into John Lewis to get the changing bag I want, and noticed the Silver Cross pram I want has gone up massively in price for 2014, from £600 to £700. I couldn't work out what the changes were, and it was busy, so we went to Mothercare, where we needed to go anyway, to ask. As we got to the pram section the one I want (Surf) was on display with a ticket saying they were selling it off as an ex demo now the new season model is in. Best of all, it was the colour I want, bright red, and only £450! We snapped it up there and then. It has a few cosmetic scratches from being the demo model, but otherwise perfect and looks fab. ILs are paying for it, but that's irrelevant since I don't want anyone, them or us, spending more than necessary. Got home, did some gardening, and chilled out in the sun. Fab day. Today OH is leaving (in a few mins) for the US for 5 days on business, so I think I'll pop over and have lunch with parents.
Hi to anyone who follows, hope you're having a good weekend xx

Haven't been on for a while, been really busy at work and struggling to find the time to get on.
Coco - glad the move went well..make sure you rest up and don't do too much more.
CO - lovely that bump is moving loads. I am hungry a lot too...I don't really like fruit much which may prove to be an issue!!
CJ - Sounds like a lovely weekend, and how cute are little hiccups. Can't wait to get to that stage
BF - sorry the fibroids are playing up. It may mean you don't get the birth of your dreams, but personally, as long as baby gets out safe, there's no point in getting hung up on how they come out.
AFM - not too much to report really, starting to feel little flickers I think. Had a good look at prams this week. Am torn between the iCandy Peach 3 and the Bugaboo Cameleon, might drag husband to JL over the Easter holidays!
Enjoy your Sundays ladies

Coco - there was a Friday thread as I posted on it but it was started quite late in the day and didn't get many posters. Hope the move went well and you are finally getting to relax :)
CO - Can't believe you are 25w already!! I need to get stocked up on the healthy stuff too... junk is my friend at the moment lol
CJ - Hiccuping bump sounds adorable (if not a little strange!) - I can't wait to feel Paperclip moving in there!!
BF - Sorry to hear fibroids are causing problems. In an ideal world I'd love to have a water birth but I know health problems are meaning I'm 99% going to have to have a elective section ahead of my due date. I initially was gutted about it and really unhappy but I know that ultimately I have to do what is safest for not only the baby but for me and as long as we're both healthy and alive at the end of it all that's what really matters :)
Gavi - Good luck with dragging H pushchair shopping. I bought mine a while ago as it was end of line stock and my H was adamant he wanted that specific one - been cluttering up the nursery ever since!! haha
AFM - Today I'm 19 weeks! Can't believe I'll be halfway next week and if I do have the C-section then I'm probably at least halfway now already. My head cold has nearly gone (9 days of head goo is NOT a nice experience) but I do keep having the odd coughing fit which results in me being sick. Glamourousness of pregnancy eh? Friday's coughing fit also involved me weeing a teeny bit haha. I can be sure my sinuses are finally clear today though as this mornings coughing fit resulted in projectile vomit out of my nose! Was hideous yet kind of satisfying at the same time in a weird way lol

BF - can understand why you are anxious but it sounds like you are having fantastic care. All that will matter is that baby is delivered in the safest way, whatever that may be, Well done on the pram bargain
Gavi - yey to flutters! Those are the two prams I'm torn over! Wanted ICandy first, then the bugaboo and think need to go to JL and make a decision.
PS yey to 19 weeks but boo to you feeling so poorly. If it helps I am already suffering from weak bladder issues so kick to work on my pelvic floor muscles! glad your sinuses are feeling bit clearer!
AFM - I'm on operation slowly clear out flat but never seems to happen, and buy stuff for baby! Going to see my gparents at lunch today at my parents and ask them how they would feel if I gave their surname as a middle name to our baby (in my culture, it's considered bad form to name babies after people who are still alive - don't ask me why - I'm hoping ths is difference as will be their surname, rather than their first names). I like it as a nod to them and of course my mama, as it's her maiden name!
