Boo to monday!! First day back at work for me but we dont have to be in until lunchtime so its not too bad, although we do have a first day backdinner which means I wont get away again until 7.30 ish. Mondays will usually be one of my days off this year though which is nice. Slightly worried about hiding being pregnant but we'll see how it goes.
Nothing to report pregnancy wise really except for peeing 4 or 5 times a night which is so annoying! ! Managing to feel fairly ok as long as I eat constantly but small amounts. If I eat too much it's as bad as not eating. Great fun! !
Hope you're all well

Morning AR! Hope its a good day - positive and full of hope for the year ahead! The getting up in the night makes me want to cry especially as its now going to be the status quo for the next how many years?! Hope it settles down in 2nd tri!
We leave Gothenburg today. We are back at the radisson so got the worlds biggest buffet breakkie to look forward to once H is awake! Feeling good in general though. Not long till 2nd tri!

AR, hope it's an easy first day back? Is this an in-service day, or whatever you call teacher only days in England? Enjoy someone else cooking your dinner too ;) glad to hear you aren't feeling too bad
SP, a buffet breakfast would go down well here right now!
Well after a weekend of feeling absolutely wiped out, constant headache, irrational crying (ie Rachel saying goodbye to Ross when she was moving to Paris, and more irrationaly, X Factor), I was up with M a few times last night then was wide awake after the last tome I was up with her, absolutely starving! Was eating toast at 4am this morning. Sign of baby having a growth spurt perhaps? I actually feel quite good this morning which I'm surprised at. Today is singing at library this morning, little bit of shopping after, home for lunch, promised M wed do some painting then she has ballet at half three, hopefully she's going to enjoy it she wasn't too sure last week, think being their first week she was a but unsure of me leaving here even though I was waiting in the next room. She came through at 645 this morning asking if today was ballet day...good sign! Going to attempt something half decent for tea too instead of the usual frozen stuff stuck in oven that I've been dishing up!
Hope everyone is having a good day xx

AR - first day back at school, all the buzz and seeing folk again! Hope it goes well.
SP - I'll almost be glad when you're home, I have breakfast envy. Glad you're not feeling too bad. You're leaving us VERY soon. Exciting!
WE - cute that M is excited about ballet. I don't know about irrational, I'd cry if I was watching X Factor too lol (Strickers is back v soon, cannot wait!)
I feel wretched. Sinusitis is back, head weighs a ton, fatigue is full-on and sickness is permanent. Still managed to have a half-decent weekend, because seriously paced myself. Went to cinema yesterday, I blubbed for the entire last 20 minutes of the film (still didn't unblock head though, pah!). Spent half of yesterday in bed, had an early night and still struggled to get up. I'm at my desk and feel capable of NOWT! Really wish I was in bed. Lots to do here though, it's a bit manic so hopefully - once I've woken up - that'll distract me from my self-pity!! I prefer it when it's stressful. :)

Sorry haven't been around much lately.
AR- Boo to back at work. Having Mondays off sounds good though, they are the worst day!
Sweetpea- Enjoy your beakfast :) Second tri is in sight for you.
Weekender- Eating tiast at 4am did make me laugh! Sounds like a nice busy day.
AFM- I had an early scan on saturday as I had a little bit of brown discharge on Monday. It was amazing and got to see the little heartbeat beating away :) According to them I am a day ahead than what I thought so 8 plus 1 roday. Only thing is yesterday when I went to the toilet I had a bright red bbit of blood on the tissue, nothing since and no pain so fingers crossed it was just somethign random.Trying not to worry as all was perefct the day before. So cruel though that once I relaxed that happened. Sypmtoms wise I am off alo of foods and yesterday I slept for over an hour in the afternoon, luckily through the whole football match H was watching :)
When did you all have your booking in appointment? I havent heard anything yet.
02/09/2013 at 09:35
Bertie, mine was due at 10 weeks, but due to her holiday I had it at 8.
Try not to worry about the blood. There's all sorts of reasons... I had it several times early on due to thrush, now I'm getting it because my cervix is irritated by constipation (TMI!) and straining causes a little bit of bright red blood, and later, afterwards, it will be dark. EPU said to carry on as usual, even okay to have sex if it doesn't cause bleeding, but keep an eye on it. I never saw so much as a pinprick of blood with my son, so I was really panicky at first (the first tri ladies will back me up on that!), but no pain and no heavy bleeding so I'm not really worrying.
02/09/2013 at 09:57
sp - make the most of that breakfast! If i remember right the getting up eases off in 2nd tri and then getsbadagain when baby gets big and sits on your bladder. Its worse though because it yougetstuck on your back and have to wake your H to roll you out of bed each time!
Weekender - yes staff day. Kids aren't back until thursday, which is my other day off! Hehe! Ballet sounds fab! I've signed P up for baby ballet which starts in a couple of weeks, no idea what she'll think but she loves to dance so i hope she'll like it.
Bertie - glad the scan went well. I'm sure theblood is nothing but do ring mw/GP if you are worried.
counter - taking it easy is the key. HOpefully work willtake your mind off feeling pants.
02/09/2013 at 10:02
Counter- Thank you, thats reassuring. I know that the chance of anything bad happening drops drastically after seeing the heartbeat at 8 weeks so i keep teling myself that.
AR- Yea I am going to keep an eye on it. I havent been in touch with a midwife yet but when i rang epu about the browny blood before they just said to monitor it and call back if I get pain and heavy blood that fills a pad so at the mo I am just trying to relax. easier said than done!
02/09/2013 at 10:07
Bertie I bled every week or two between 6-10weeks but its all okay! My GP said she bled throughout all 3 of her pregnancies. Bleeding can happen for all sorts of reasons so as long as its only a small amount and without any cramping its likely to be absolutely fine. It's a horrible feeling though.
02/09/2013 at 10:12
Oh poor you counter - you've had a rough first tri so far. Hope your day flies in and you're back in bed in no time.
WE that's a busy day indeed! I have felt starving at some points in the last few weeks also waking in the night with hunger! I wondered if it was a growth spurt...it's certainly been a growth spurt of my waist line anyway!! Hope ballet goes well.

Good morning ladies
AR - Hope it's a nice easy day back for you :)!
SP- a buffet breakfast sounds lush!
Weekender - Sorry you had a rubbish weekend, Sounds like you have a very busy day! Hope she enjoys ballet!
Counter - Hope you feel better soon :(!
Bertie - Glad your scan went well - I am sure it's nothing (blood wise) but you have had some good answers on here :)
Indigestion has kicked in this morning! Lovely haha!
My mum told my dad today that I am pregnant (He's old fashioned like married then babies etc) she was a little worried about telling him, but apparently he was fantastic about it and said "They are married what are you worrying about" to my mum, It's made my day haha!
MIL has obviously got over her disappointment and brought some baby grows while out shopping (Pretty cute ones from primark actually) She brought us 0-3 months because she thinks we are going to have a "Lump" charming, so I told her I am not talking to her anymore haha!

I was at a BBQ on Saturday and most of the time had a face like a smacked ar$e because wanted to be a) in bed asleep or b) drunk. But.... I was picking a new mum's brains about everything from monitors, to maternity cover, to bf-ing. All the while saying 'if we have kids'. I am sure she must have guessed but she was very sweet. I haven't really spoken to anyone in real life about genuine practical baby things so it was good. And weird, lol. I think now I am nearly 9 weeks and have had a scan I have moved from panicking about an early mc to assuming something much worse will come our way. it doesn't keep me awake at night (my restless legs and fidgety dog does that for me!) but it's always there. I should think lots of people are like it, but it's a sensitive thing to talk about. My mum would be the best to speak to (experience wise) but we don't really talk like that. She's not known for being supportive, reassuring or empathetic!!!!
02/09/2013 at 12:04
Counter,I know what you mean, I'm now stressing about next weeks scan (12 wk) and is it going to show something bad, or will the nuchal testing throw up something and maybe we shouldnt tell people until we have test results and then I thougfht maybe we should wait till after 20 week scan but H pointed out that there'll be no hiding it by then so I was being ridiculous. Hopefully after the scan I'll feel more positive and like I can move on.
CC, what a cheeky moo your MIL is glad your dad is happy for you x
Bertie, I know what you mean about panicking if you are worried at all speak to your epu or mw. You are right though, seeing hb at 8 weeks reduces the risk of loss, so try not to worry x

My friend texted earlier to see if M wanted to go and play and have lunch so I've dropped her off. Stopped off at cafe on way home so currently sat on my ar$e watching location location location while eating chocolate fudge cake and drinking a latte. Thatll be my caffeine quota for the week I've been spoiled with lazy time the last few days!
