Good morning! This is way too early to be awake on a Saturday, but try telling my brain that! I'm still in bed though and listening to the wind and rain battering the house. I'm not sure I'm in a rush to go out there today!
I've got a busy day ahead, meeting a friend for coffee this morning, hopefully getting my boobs measured at John lewis and then I'm off up Sheffield for a late lunch with some friends.
Happy feet is moving around loads mord lately which is lovely, it's still not regular and sometimes I still don't feel anything. 3 sleeps now.

Morning all and Imp
Imp - sure does sound like you've got a busy day ahead with lots of chat and laughs, lovely. :) I get you with the wind , blummin eck it kept me awake most of the night. Not long now until your scan, very exciting and so good to hear happy feet is happily dancing away :)
AFM our little fella has been prodding me more which is great, we had a couple of days where we nearly contacted the midwife as there was hardly any movements and cause for concern but thankfully I feel him again, not proper kicks but flutterings and feels like prods and not strong enough for H to feel yet. :( I hope this is all normal at this stage. I can't believe we are 6 months woohoo!
I've had pelvic/pubic discomfort for a few weeks, it's tricky moving and getting comfy in bed and walking and getting out of a seat. I'll check that with the mw on 3rd March for our next appt.
Gonna do research into buying baby stuff today, cost and practicality etc as I had a meltdown last weekend with sobs, silly I know :)
Hi to all and have great weekends xx

Imp - I know what you mean about the wind....we're in the South East and it's been battering the house all night. Sounds like you've a lovely day planned, enjoy catching up with your friends. Also, yay for more movements!
LeeLee - All sounds completely normal to me at this stage from experience bit if your pelvis etc is giving you too much grief definitely speak to your me, as they can refer for physio. Enjoy your baby shopping research :-)
AFM - Been feeling a not pants with my ibs but starting to feel more human I think! Barely slept with the noise from the wind, but it's gradually starting to ease off thankfully. Have to go to town today to get some food and also window shop for baby. H had to work last night, but as I've got tonight off we're having a nice belated homecooked Valentines meal. Also had our anomaly scan date through...27th March when I'll be 19+6 :-)

Imp - hope you enjoy your day and weather dies down a bit!
LL - how lovely to feel your baby moving around. Hope you are feeling more chilled than last week.
Coco - glad you have your scan date through. Do you have tablets for when you have a IBS flare up? enjoy your valentines meal!
AFM - sound of the wind freaked me out last night, sounded horrendous and my windows and doors seemed to be shaking! I thnk it sounded worse than it is as I'm on 4th floor flat and on a hill anyway. So glad it's the weekend!

Morning! Hurrah for the weekend.
Imp, have a lovely day with your friends! Good luck at John Lewis, I hope you come away feeling much more comfortable.
LeeLee, all the baby shopping is very overwhelming, it's hard to know where to begin. We've been doing it slowly, and only looking at specific things each time we go into the shop. The first time we went we looked at absolutely everything and both bolted from the shop in a panic lol.
Coco, glad you're starting to feel more human. Enjoy your window shopping. Your meal with H tonight sounds lovely.
CJ, hope the wind has died down a bit now? Enjoy the weekend!
AFM, we have a table booked tonight at our favourite Chinese restaurant but we're going to see just how bad the weather gets before deciding to go or not. It's really dark and wet and cold here today. I love Chinese food, but not enough to catch a cold and ruin my asthma again.
Scan is less than a week away now, roll on next Friday!

Morning all - happy weekend!!!!!!
Imp - Hope you enjoy your busy day. Sounds fun actually. I hope you get some new bras that are comfortable too. Its great that Happy Feet is moving more. I get times when I don't feel anything too. That will be when they are having their power nap!!!!
LeeLee - glad you are doing well. Wow to 6 months. Thats brilliant!!! Amazing how quick it seems to come in, especially when it seems to drag at the beginning. Hope you have fun looking at baby stuff.
Coco - Hope your IBS settles down soon. Hope you have a lovely meal tonight, enjoy it. Thats brilliant you've got your 20 week scan date through already. I only got mine 3 weeks ago and I go for mine on Wednesday!!!!! Your area seem waaaaaay more organised. Have fun today.
CJ - hi, hope the wind dies down soon and you get some sleep tonight. Have a good day.
Fig - I really hope the weather dies down and you get out for your Chinese meal tonight. Finger crossed but, you're right, not worth getting ill for. You can go another time if you aren't able to make it today. Woohoo for countdown to scans!!!!!
AFM - I'm continuing with Operation Clear Out today. I'm at the stage where its really looking a lot worse but I think it goes that way before it gets better. Really hoping that today it starts to look better or I might just give up!!!!!
Pregnancy wise feeling great. Only 4 sleeps until my scan so not too much longer to wait now. Its seemed like a lifetime to come round.
Hope everyone else is well.

Imp, enjoy your busy day, it sounds like it should be a fun one.
LeeLee, yay for lots of kicks, sorry you're suffering with spd though. I've heard keeping the knees together as much as poss helps, putting a plastic bag on the car seat to slide out both legs together, putting clothes on sat down legs together etc. Hope the midwife can help.
Coco, glad the ibs is easing. Enjoy shopping today. Do you think you'll need to get much for number 2? I've bought a Moses basket mattress so far and that's it!
CJ, it's been so horrid weather wise recently, I hope it eases up for everyone soon.
Fig, hope the weather improves for you so that you can go out. Takeaway if not?
Ca, the clear out sounds unfun but productive. Not long till the scan now, woop!
Afm, have had a nice morning at soft play with the little one, he gave us a full night's sleep and a lie in until 7.45 which was amazing and much appreciated! Not doing much this afternoon, he's currently in the car with H listening to music, H took him it while he fixed something inside the car then he didn't want to come out, so I'm eating a crumpet and mding from the sofa without being hassled by a toddler, bliss!

Leelee I'm glad he's moving more again. What sort of pain are you getting? Have you got a sleep pillow?
Coco how was your valentines night last night? Did you see anything you liked when window shopping?
Cj has the wind died down for you now? It has here.
Fig- I hope you had a nice evening even if you didn't make it to the Chinese.
CA- how was the clear out? Have you created a lot of space? Not long until scan day now.
SG- I hope your day continued how it started. It sounds like you got a well deserved sleep!
Well yesterday was non stop. It was lovely to see my friends. One of them is due to have her baby in 6 weeks and she thinks he's going to come early. Her first did as she has a heart shaped uterus and he ran out of space.
I also got a new bra, which was much needed.
2 more sleeps!
16/02/2014 at 13:04
CA, glad to hear you're feeling great pregnancy wise! Only 3 sleeps for you now!! So exciting. How was operation clear out?
SG, sounds like a lovely day yesterday! Hope today is the same,
Imp, hurrah to a new bra! Glad you had a nice time with your friends yesterday. Just 2 more sleeps for you!!
AFM, we didn't make it out last night as the weather was still shocking and H had a touch of man flu. He's looking much better today though so I'm glad we stayed in. We can go out another time. I've been clearing out the rest of my wardrobe this morning. I've cleared enough space that I now have a drawer just for maternity gear and all of my summer stuff has been relegated to a bottom drawer as I'll have no use for it this summer!
It's a lovely sunny day here. I'm going to quickly finish off my wardrobe and then we'll go for an afternoon walk.
Hope everyone is having a nice Sunday!

Evening all. How can it possible be Sunday evening already?!?!
Spikey - hope you got treated to another long lie again this morning!!!!!
Imp - Yay for new bras and only 2 sleeps to your scan. It'll be here in no time!!!!
Fig - thats a shame you missed your dinner last night but not worth it when one of you isn't feeling 100%. Well done with your clearing out and making space for your mat stuff.
AFM - the clearing out is going ok thanks Imp and Fig, extremely slow though. Today has been lovely here so I managed to get 2 washings done and hung out. I'm a happy camper. No clearing out today as I'd been neglecting the housework when I was doing it so I did some cleaning instead. Happy to say I completed all the tasks I set myself this morning which means I'm going to chill on the couch for the rest of the weekend. Best bit is that I've changed the bed sheets today so really can't wait to go to bed tonight!!!!
3 sleeps until scan day!!!!!!
Hope everyone is doing ok xxx
