Morning ladies and congratulations to our graduates! Can't wait to see pics of your lovely babies.
My h is working this morning which is odd as he never works weekends, but his work has had a major leak so he's going in to help savage thing and move stuff about. Then he's off to football this afternoon. Which is also a once a year thing! My parents and niece are here for the weekend so we're going Shopping and out for a meal. Can't decide where to take them.
I started to pack my hospital bags then got a bit agggghhh so stopped! Must crack on! I've slept really rubbish as I'm -5 pillows due to family in spare beds! I've been making a lovely nest with them!

Morning. Getting quiet in here now! :)
Have a lovely family day Custard :)
Been having some cracking pains since 4pm yesterday. A bath eased them but they are still going. Got mw over this am so hoping she will examine me. Think I need to get OH home from work at least for that as B is here and I won't relax :/

Can I join you please ladies?
I'm 28+3 today. I've been a bit lax on the 2nd tri thread as I don't really have much to report - just plodding along really. This week has been a bit busier pregnancy wise - Sunday we went to the pram centre, I'm after the Out and About Nipper and wanted to see the new V3 that's out. It's about £100 more expensive than the V2 but I'm not sure I can justify going for the newest model when the main difference is the colour. I really wanted the new purple but to save £100 I think ill go for the red
I had 28 wk midwife appointment on Tuesday morning, all fine. Bump measuring 29cm. Heard hb. Urine fine. I was back later for the whooping cough vaccine, didn't hurt at the time bump my arm is still sore now!
Wednesday I had the boring GTT at the hospital. The time dragged in, a whole morning sitting in a waiting room bored!
Back at the mw in 4 weeks now and another scan in 6 weeks to look at size and the kidneys as the baby had a very slightly dilated kidney at 20 weeks.
Not much planned today. H works all weekend and he's off to watch a Mui Thai fight tonight so just the kids and I. A has her martial art class and L is missing it as he has a birthday party.
Custard have a lovely day, hope you find somewhere nice to eat.
Chimpanzee hope its not to bad, try to eat, drink and rest as much as possible. Good luck!

Custard- Enjoy your family day!
Chimp- hope the MW tells you that the pains are the start of something and that OH gets home for you to relax!
Lavendar Rose- welcome! The more the merrier as its getting very quiet in here now everyones having their babies! :-) hope you have a nice weekend with the children after your busy week. My WC jab hurt me for ages afterwards!
AFM- having our hall, stairs and landing carpet fitted today, along with babys nursery carpet..yay! Then tonight Im out with work for an all you can eat meal, as my leaving party. Cant wait, as the food is amazing! Tomorrow we're fetching all the nursery furniture from the in laws as they have been storing it for us and hubby is going to start to put it up.
Have a good day everyone!

Custard sounds like a busy house! Hope you get your bag packed, I've half done mine!
Chimp sounds promising! Hope the MW goes well.
Hi LR I did think there had been nobody new from 2nd for ages!
Gem I saw your post y'day, no pic flash of all your lively gifts!? I love the smell of new carpet your house will be super new carpet smell! enjoy your meal, sounds awesome!
AFM - awful sleep last night. Went to bed at 10, woke at 1, lay in bed until 2pm and then got up as my heartburn was unreal!! Gavison, milk and water later still no change so I watched two films and did my asda online shop! Finally got back to bed at 5:45pm and then out to walk the dog at 8am. I had a spicy chicken pizza (takeaway) last night so pretty sure that was responsible. On a positive note, all the furniture is built in the nursery and I put things away y'day which was great! I've still to do the wall decals and put the rug down so I'll wait and flash photos when it's actually done but I just love it!
16/11/2013 at 09:54
MDD- all the lovely gifts are still in the gift bags, I shall take a pic over the weekend to flash :-)
Sorry you had a rubbish nights sleep. I know ive been lucky with the heartburn as I take a tum as soon as it starts and that takes it off. Nothing worse than bad heartburn!
Can't wait to see your nursery, im feeling so unorganised! Cant wait for this week, now ive finished work
I can get organised and wash baby clothes etc. hospital bag still isnt out of the wardrobe yet! Ha

Great to see another BA this morning!
Custard, hope you have a nice day out. I'm giggling at the thought of your H going to savage things in work today.
Chimpanzee, hope it goes well with the mw and things get started for you x
LR, hello! We had similar with our pram, ended up with last year colours as it was over 100 cheaper.
Gemini, have fun finishing the nursery, can't wait to see a pic!
MDD, can't wait to see your nursery too! Sorry you had a rubbish sleep but sounds like you had a productive night.
Afm, still in bed, lazy cow. Didn't sleep well at all . Not feeling baby wriggles today, normally I am kicked to bits at 9.30 on the dot, will give him a bit of time to wake up I think. Will do some chores later, might wash some baby clothes too and then sit down and decide where to have a day out with H tomorrow.

A picture of a few of the gifts we recieved from my work yesterday, there are lots and lots more!
16/11/2013 at 17:14
Gemini, wow, what a haul! Lovely pressies, you must have been choked xxx
Oh, and of course, LOVE the penguin outfit x
16/11/2013 at 17:21
I was more than choked..sobbing lol!
One of the children's parents is obsessed with penguins so she bought the outfit complete with penguin rattle!

Hello everyone, hope you're all having great weekends! Massive congratulations to BumpEnvy!!
Custard- sounds like a lovely weekend. Do u get ur pillow nest back tomorrow? Im half way through packing my bag!
Chimp- really hope the pains have eased off
LR- welcome to 2nd tri! U have had a busy baby week!
Gemini-looking forward to a flash of the nursery!! Where is the pengie outfit from, love it!
Missdeedee- what an awful night, best avoid those spicy takeaways!
MrsP- hope ur lazy day continued and you felt dome wiggles. There is no routine at all to baby bass' movements any more!
AFM- hadca horrible night, bump is still aching and did more so lieing on my side with no support under it so I wrnt and got a spare pillow to wedge under which helped but everytime I turned over I woke up, felt the ache and had to rearrange my pillow. Somehow H managed to get himself comfy right in the middle of the bed too and I couldn't move him so had limited space! Grr!
My day improved though as 2 of my besties came to take me for lunch. I went up to the loo before we left and when I came down there were loads of bags in my lounge, a bunch of balloons and my friends giggling away!! They told me lots of people were comming round and i was having a baby shower! Had a great afternoon with lots of friends and my mum and cakes! They got everyone to decorate a bib and we got so many pressies! I will post some photos tomorrow!
H is off apple picking in the morning (for cider making) then im hoping to get the wall sticker and shelves up in the nursery. Need somewherebto put all the new stuff!
17/11/2013 at 09:13
Morning ladies, hope you're all doing ok! I've uploaded a couple of pics to my BA thread if you fancy a look! Hoping to go home today xx
17/11/2013 at 09:45
Congratulations BE! He's beautiful!!
Mrs Bass- The penguin outfit/pjs are from Tesco! :-)
Well, the wardrobe and drawers are up, just starting to build the cot. Must admit this Mamas & Papas flat pack funiture is fab, so easy to put up and so sturdy. Looks lovely! ( we went for the white rialto range)
Have a good day ladies!
17/11/2013 at 10:28
Mrs Bass, sounds like a lovely day yesterday!
Who makes the cider? Yum!
17/11/2013 at 11:09
Thanks Gemini, going to have a look out for them!
MrsP- it was a great afternoon! H does home brewing at the moment but him and a couple of his mates want to give cider a try. one of them has a press so they are off to get some apples to give it a go!! Could have interesting results!
My bump ache is much better this morning but a little tickly cough i had has got worse and im feeling a bit 'meh' hoping this doesnt get worse!
As promised here are some photos from the shower!
Design a bib game!
Pretty impressive haul of gifts!!
17/11/2013 at 17:43
