Morning all, another rubbish sleep for me, I'm going to look up the long range forecast and I think I might invest in a good fan! I slept on top of the bed sheets all night and a record 4 trips to the loo too pee last night. I have woken with the starting a of a headache too. Awesome!
BUT it's Friday!!! Yay! Looking forward to the weekend and no work.
Imp if your around hope your doing ok and the next few days pass quickly.
I think I might have to cave this weekend and buy a couple of dresses as I have such a limited wardrobe now and this weathers just further restricted it! I also have our scan tomorrow afternoon so hope baby dd is in there wriggling around. We've been getting all the decking replaced in the garden this week which will be finished today so looking forward to the weekend to get outside!
whats everyone's plans?x
19/07/2013 at 07:29
Get yourself some dresses, I can't believe you've held out for so long! It was really hot here last night. We had just a sheet, the fan on full and all the windows wide open but it was still boiling hot.
AFM, well, the last few days have been a roller coaster of emotions. I'm still not fully on board, but I'm taking the journey as we've no other option. I'm terrified about how we'll cope, but I think somehow we will. Plus, there's still an 80% chance that everything with baby is perfectly healthy. Hurry up this next week so we know our future.
19/07/2013 at 08:04
As you say, 80% is a very very good chance that all is perfectly fine. I'm sending you all the positive results vibes.
I do have some dresses but they're not mat clothes just some looser clothes that I can fit, however because its sooo warm I need to pick up some extra stuff, most of my mat clothes are tops and a couple of pairs of trousers but I can't stand the waist bands on me at the mo, it's too warm!! I'll have a look this weekend and pick up another couple of things, I feel like I'm wearing the same stuff constantly, oh yeah, I am!!
19/07/2013 at 08:08
MDD - new look have some nice dresses at the moment and some good ones in the sale.
Imp - really sorry but i must have missed what's happening with you at the moment. Ive had a look and cant see anything. Hope that everything turns out okay with baby. X
AFM - Not feeling too good. Woke up and feel dizzy and light headed everytime i stand up. Back in bed now, having something to eat and drink to see if that helps. Had a good day yesterday but it didn't really seem like it was my birthday for some reason. X
19/07/2013 at 08:09
Morning :-) MDD, I feel your pain! Good luck for your scan tomorrow xx
Imp - I've got everything crossed for you, 80% is a good figure! Stay strong xx
AFM - Trying to persuade H that it's a good idea to go for a breakfast beach walk at 7am tomorrow with the dogs, not sure that he wants to get up early! So glad it's Friday, have really struggled with the heat at work this week. Not got much planned for the weekend, may go cinema to watch Despicable Me 2 :-)
19/07/2013 at 08:11
Sorry you're not well MS, take it very easy in this heat.
I had a phonecall late on Wednesday asking me to go in to see the MW yesterday. My screening results came back as high risk for downs etc, 1 in 5 chance so we are having an amnio on Tuesday so that we know for sure. The wait is agonising, as is the worrying aboou how we'll cope.
19/07/2013 at 08:19
Okay, in very sorry to hear that imp. I really hope everything turns out fine from the further tests you have. As others have said an 80% chance is good. X
19/07/2013 at 08:28
Hurrah for Friday!! MDD I've been in nothing but dresses (even to do the horses!) for weeks now! I have 1 pair of maternity trousers and they're not comfy in any kind of heat so they have been abandoned! Matalan had a dress sale on last weekend, I picked up 3 maxis for £25 so might be worth a look - none are maternity but all stretchy material that go over my bump perfectly.
Imp, I am keeping everything crossed for you. 80% is a pretty good number - remember what someone else said, if you had 80% chance of winning the lottery you'd think it was great odds. Keep positive, although I know how hard it is! Have the tissues handy when they call with the news - when they tell you it's all ok, you will sob!
MS - keep drinking loads, this heat does funny things to us!
BE - the thought of an unnecessary early morning is horrible to me, but the thought of being in the beach (in the cool!) is lovely!
AFM - busy couple of days ahead. Tonight I'm helping my friend jump my/her horse (she's my horse, but is on full loan with my friend and has been since the end of March - I feel weird saying 'my' horse when I now have no financial or day to day responsibility for her, but saying 'her' horse doesn't feel right either!) then tomorrow they were booked in for a dressage lesson but friend's OH is taking her away on a short-notice holiday tonight, so we've asked the trainer to ride the horse instead of give a lesson, and I'll have the job of getting her ready and washing her off etc after. I hope it's cooler, I feel a bit vulnerable wearing floaty dresses and flip flops around the horses (and would be very critical of anyone else doing it!) but I can't bear wearing anything else at the moment.
Sunday is our first wedding anniversary, so we're going out for afternoon tea with both sets of parents. We were going to go for a meal on Sunday night but we might go on Saturday as I don't think I'd manage that much food all in one go on Sunday! I really ought to buy H a card... rubbish wife!
19/07/2013 at 08:34
MDD, I am also rapidly running out of clothes, enjoy your shop! Hope you are going to flash a pic of the decking when it's done.
Imp, I wish I could forward time for you. I think you are being amazingly strong and I'm sure you will cope with any outcome. Please shout if you want to talk. Hope the weekend flies by for you.
MummySimpson, hope you had a lovely birthday yesterday and that you feel better soon
Bumpenvy, how lovely to have an early beach walk, hope H agrees to go!
Afm it's Tour de France time. I bought this weekend for husbands 40th, so we get the train to London today (1st class, so excited). Staying there overnight and having dinner at Gilbert Scott with some friends who are about to emigrate to Singapore. A champagne brunch at st pancras tomorrow ( can you tell this was booked pre bump). Eurostar to Paris, 3 days there with Sunday being the finish of the tour. Just need to work out where to watch it. Sorry to waffle, but I am so excited!. Have a lovely weekend all, Bon voyage! x

Mrs50s, happy anniversary! Have a lovely weekend x
19/07/2013 at 09:22
Morning everyone !
MDD I have the same wardrobe problem. Going to have to give in and buy some dresses tomorrow. I'm hoping to get some maxi dresses which I can always use with a cardigan when it gets cooler ( although at only five foot I need to find ones I can take up!)
IMP- I can't imagine how you're feeling right now it must feel like an incredibly long wait. I know its easy to say but 80% odds really is good for your little onion. I hope you can keep busy and do something nice over the weekend to help pass the time quicker x x
MS take it easy today. How about a nice cool bath?
BE a 7am walk would normally be my idea of hell but in this heat is much prefer it to a lunch time walk!!
Mrs50s enjoy your anniversary. I love having afternoon tea.
MrsP have a fab weekend , sounds lovely. Hopefully you can find somewhere cool to watch from
AFM off to bounce and rhyme this morning then going to come home and do nothing for the day. I think I've been pushing myself a bit much the last few days going out in the heat for walks with W pushing her up hills etc and been feeling a bit dizzy, so I'm having an indoors day today. Living room curtains are staying closed to keep the sun out!
Hoping to go get some cooler clothes tomorrow as I roasting!
Also realised in probably meant to be on the third tri now as I'm 27+1. I don't want to go though- there's people having babies over there! I'm not ready for that I'm happy as I am!
I will move over Monday I suppose. But will pop back in to check on you all xx

MissDeeDee – Sorry you had a rotten sleep, I’ve resorted to sleeping on top of the duvet too! Hope scan tomorrow goes well and baby behaves!
Imp – Thinking of you lovely and hoping you get a good result next week. Like you say 80% is a really good chance of everything being fine. I know it’s no use saying not to worry, but I hope it doesn’t drag by too slowly for you lovely.
MS – Rubbish that you’re not feeling too good today. I wonder if it is the heat, I’ve felt a bit rough the last few mornings too…glad you’re back in bed, might as well stay there eh? Feel better soon!
BE – I’ve struggled at work this week too and I’ve only been here two days! Looking forward to my weekend is a bit of a cheek really haha
Mrs50s – can’t believe you are managing that at all never mind in this heat – legend! Hope you have a lovely anniversary on Sunday! X
MrsP – Wow, you have quite the weekend ahead. Enjoy every minute!!! X
JT – I know what you mean about moving to third tri – that is some scary business. I’m 27 weeks tomorrow, we can be brave move over together !!
AFM – To hell with it I am in work with a vest and flip flops on today, I tried the shirt and real shoes thing yesterday and I nearly died! Feeling a bit cooler today but would still much rather be in my back garden with a nice cold drink with my feet up!
My little lady is getting more and more wriggly everyday, her wee kicks were quite sharp and made me jump at times yesterday – good to know she is getting stronger though so she can carry on beating me up for now I guess.
Well, 27 weeks tomorrow so I guess that will make me third tri like JT. It’s a really scary thought! I haven’t been a very good 2nd tri-er recently so must try harder when I see you all over on third tri. Will be keeping an eye on all your updates of course!
If I don’t make it back today then I will see you over on third tri soon. Enjoy the rest of 2nd tri my lovelies!! xxx
19/07/2013 at 10:21
Morning all! It is so busy in here, can't believe how many posts already when I log on in the morning! Fab! :o)
MissDD, hope the headache goes away :( This hear is bad enough for headaches, let alone when pregnant too!
lmp, I hope the next few days go quickly for you. 80% is a huge amount, try and stay positive (easier said than done!) xxx
mummysimpson, hope you feel better soon x
BE, enjoy the beach walk, madness! ;) Despicable Me 2 is fab! x
Mrs50s, sounds like a busy weekend. I am just about managing to function in this heat lol. Happy anniversary x
MrsPenguin, sounds absolutely fab! Have a wonderful time :o)
Jellytot, have a lovely day out of the sun, the heat doesn't help when rushing about with everyday life! I have 6 weeks before 3rd tri and it is scary! See you over there! :o)
AFM, 21+1. Getting lots of kicks, can feel them on the outside now which is wonderful for OH and for B to feel. Nothing else to report! Have a fab weekend all x
19/07/2013 at 11:08
MissDD- Last night was the worst for me. It was so stuffy and so hot! We took the dog out at 9.30pm just to get out of the house for a bit as it was unbearable. Hope you scan goes well tomorrow and baby is behaving so you can see lots. Definitely get some dresses, they are so much more comfortable in this heat!
Imp- Have been thinking about you and hope the next week passes quicky. All the vibes in the world for you but like you say 80% is good odds! Sorry you are having to go through this. xx
MS- Hope the dizziness has passed and you are feeling better. I sometimes get that where it doesn't feel like my birthday, strange! Hope you had a lovely day anyway :)
BE- You are the pregnant one, surely it should be your H dragging you out of bed instead of the other way around!? haha. I don't plan on getting up anywhere near that early tomorrow. We have H's daughter tonight but he has been really good at sorting her out and letting me lie in for as long as possible on weekends as he knows I need the sleep!
Mrs50s- I could definitely manage all that food in one day ;) haha Spreading it out and having a full weekend celebrating sounds like a good idea though. Have a lovely day! Our 1st wedding anniversary is 27th Oct.. baby is due on the 30th. We had planned to go for a nice romantic weekend away but that is obviously out of the question now!
MrsPenguin- Your trip sounds amazing! Have a lovely time :)
JT- It hit me yesterday that people actually have babies on 3rd tri and realised that it isn't far away, I don't want to go either!! I did have a read through the 3rd tri yesterday though and there was LOTS of people ready for baby to be here so I'm hoping I will feel more prepared towards the end.. It just feels like it is all going too fast and I want to be pregnant forever haha. Take care of yourself and have a rest today
MrsMack- I have done exactly the same today. Maxi skirt, very top and flip flops for work this morning! Have a lovely day and I will see you over on 3rd tri in a few weeks.
Chimp- Lovely that OH and B can feel kicks now too! Have a lovely day.
AFM- Midwife appointment this morning, all was straight forward and booked in my next appointment for 9th August. I really feel like everything is going to go EVEN quicker now as appointments etc get more frequent. It's scary! Baby was very well behaved and she found the heartbeat straight away. Finish at 2pm today so a nice short day. Going to the park with the dog and step daughter this afternoon and then have nothing but a lazy weekend planned!
19/07/2013 at 11:46
Missdeedee - I've just bought loads of dresses from new look all around £8 each & some short leggings that are really thin & keep me cool in this weather! A fan does wonders I sleep with a fan even when its not hot :)
lmp - Hoping all goes well for you & that this week flies by, will keep everything crossed!
mummysimpson - Hope you are feeling better soon, this weather is not helping with dizziness. Try to stay cool & rest, hopefully you will be well enough to enjoy the weekend.

Samjh87 - Glad you got to hear baby's heartbeat :) have a fab weekend & enjoy your walk!!
AFM - Off work today as had a little bleed yesterday, all seems well now, just been advised to rest. Eager for my 20week scan even more now 1st August!!

Hi all, on my phone so can't attempt personals since you lot have managed two pages already, just checking in to say hello, nothing really to report, gonna ride my horse very very early at weekend to avoid heat (like 7am early - although I'm actually wondering about 6am!)
Then we have a few bits of DIY to do in house.
19/07/2013 at 16:09
Hi all. Feeling better now. Thanks for sending me get better soon vibes. Hoping to be able to go and watch H play in his basketball match later.
