Hope everyone is well this morning and looking forward to a nice weekend. Plans slightly changed here - boys are being grotty and grumpy so I think we will try to get out for a good stomp round the woods later on to hopefully tire them out then veg with a film this afternoon. Tonight I'm watching Eurovision with a glass of wine and intending to paint my toenails - rock and roll! All well with baby, MW on Monday which will be nice as I've only met her once so far.
Last day on 2nd tri as well - scary stuff!

Morning Margot, it's my first day on 2nd Tri! Scary how quick it's going. Hope you tire your boys out! I may watch Eurovision too. My mum is babysitting my stepbrother's LO today so think we might go for a seaside walk as it's a nice sunny day :-)
Hello 2nd Trimester-ers! Xx

Margot- have fun in the woods!
BE - welcome! How are you? Your seaside walk sounds fab too!
AFM- I'm off for a pedicure at 12, I can't wait! I'm currently having a little lie in while H is downstairs with L :) but my belly is starting to rumble so I should go and get some breakfast. Everything is good with baby although a bit quiet this morning compared to normal but I am shattered today so could be why.
Poppy - 21+7
3rd tri ... Eek! Have a good weekend and enjoy your cheeky wine.
AFM - last day in Spain, we made it out for a little walk yesterday but the weather was unbelievably crap so we spent most of the day inside playing hide and seek with A, he's pretty rubbish at it though, jumps out saying here I am as soon as he thinks the seeker is struggling!
Our flight isn't until 9, hoping the weather will be a bit better so we can at least have lunch outside!
Bump is still on the quiet side but have had some big thumps this morning so thinking she has grown a bit. We asked A what we should call the baby, he said Bob (then proceeded to sing Bob The Builder). Poor little girl, I have a feeling Bob may stick!
Tomorrow A has a birthday party to go to and I'll be starting to sort everything for his birthday and party on Tuesday.

BE - welcome to 2nd tri, enjoy the seaside if you go
PS - ha, I'm still in bed whilst H entertains A, I just asked A to ask Dada to get Mama some toast but it's like Chinese whispers, H is confused why A wants him to get my toes. D'oh! Enjoy your pedi.

Happy weekend everyone! Sorry for lack of personals as I'm on my phone but I have been terrible this week and haven't been around at all so wanted to show my face!
Big baby news this week: on Wed I felt flutters for the first time (no more since though) and on Thurs the midwife found the heartbeat. So all very exciting here! I am an A grade pregnant lady with good blood pressure, bloods, wee and uterus height so am glad that I seem to be doing something right.
Off to this tonight, one of my favourite weekends of the year here: www.thelateshows.org.uk
Hope everyone is well x

Hiya PS hope you enjoyed your pedicure! I cant stand people touching my feet lol
Hi BG loving bob as a name hehehehehe hope you have a safe trip home!
Hi Duck hope you enjoyed the mini meet :)
TT glad everything went well at your check and yey for flutterings!
AFM well hubbys nan had a heart attack last week hence my sudden silent spell on here. We have been to'ing and fro'ing trying to sort stuff for her. There is a possibility she will be moving closer to us as none of her family help at home. Baby is kicking and punching a hell of a lot. I cant sleep all through the night anymore, Im permanently pee'ing! Hope everyone else is well and all good on the bump front! xxxx

Morning ladies, my last day here - as it's so quiet at the weekend, I'll go to 3rd tri tomorrow and spend one last day with you lovely ladies.
TT, how fab to feel wriggles!
Luna, sorry to hear about H's nan but she's lucky to have you to help out.
Not a lot to report here, planning a day of baking once we've popped to Asda for a few bits, and the usual packed lunches and sorting for school/nursery tomorrow - must remember to take my notes too as I'm going straight from work to MW and then back to work again. Baby is nice and active and I finally made a start on sorting out all the stuff in the nursery yesterday as H is going to decorate it whilst me and the boys are away at half term.

Morning all! Who won eurovision?! I gave in and went to bed before the voting started.
I had a super-productive day yesterday - I began sorting all of my clothes out and putting my 'thin clothes' (sob) away in plastic boxes to be stored in the loft. I have a LOT of clothes - 2 giant IKEA wardrobes, a set of 6 IKEA drawers, another set of 4 shelves in the spare room, a bit of wardrobe space in the spare room, and the drawer under the bed, and a permanent massive pile of clean washing on the spare bed as there was never room to put it away - mainly due to years of yoyo dieting (my clothes range from size 12-18). So the thin clothes are away, everything else has been reorganised so everything has a home, and it's starting to look a bit tidier. Added bonus is not having to look at my size 12's when I'm digging size 18 maternity jeans out
Today's mission is to sort paperwork, so we can get any old files in the loft as well - the office is becoming the nursery but there is currently a giant desk unit and 20 full files on it. Some are current banking and will move into the lounge (we recently bought big bookcases so we could do this) but as lot are thinks like bank statements from accounts I closed years ago. I think I might be a bit of a hoarder... I take the 'keep financial documents for 6 years' thing a bit too seriously. My motivation for doing it this early is similar to Margot - if my paperwork is out of the way, H has said he'll try and strip the wallpaper and knock down the built in wardrobe while I'm on hols in half term. Hurrah!

Sorry to hear about your H's nan, Luna, sounds like she's lucky to have you big
M - nice to have you hear for an extra bonus day! Where are you and the boys off too?
Mrs50's - sounds very productive! That is a lot of clothes! Mind you my out of season clothes live in the loft and I normally swap them over in spring and autumn, obviously this time it was just the maternity lot that came down. I've never seen all my clothes in one room!
AFM - fab journey home, A eventually fell asleep an hour into the flight but was no bother before then, just sitting quietly on my lap looking out the window trying to spot cloud babies. We flew into Southend, landed at 23:10 and were all home and in bed by 23:50, can't beat that! Usual washing to sort out today and A has a birthday party/picnic at a local farm to go to, will see how he goes though as it's at 1pm and he may be crashing by that point.
Little 'Bob' has definitely grown, the kicks are so strong now, I'm a bit worried what it'll feel like nearer the end!

Mrs 50s, sounds like a really productive day. I'm going to try and get a bit more cleared out of the nursery later today if the boys leave me in peace long enough!
BG, what a fab journey home, hope A is able to enjoy the party later. We're going with my parents to their caravan which is near Woolacombe in Devon, hoping the sun shines!
