I am feeling particularly energised this morning! Must be due to the sunshine! Im in my linen trousers and a baggy top again today, I asked H if I looked like a hippy or just like Im wearing a potato sack, he had no idea what the safest answer was!
After some cleaning and baking yesterday, i had a lovely afternoon with my friends and their baby! I got lots of cuddles and gave him a feed too. He is gorgeous!! I ended up telling them as I was bought a pint of scrumpy! Im really glad I did as they were both really excited and she gave me lots of recommendations for prams & car seats etc! She also emphasised to me that ’no matter what I read or what people tell me, you cant plan too much and when it comes to pregnancy, birth and raising the baby, we have to do what suits us best, not what has suited other people or what the latest research suggests’
They had been to visit another friend of ours who is pregnant and kept asking questions but then would respond with “well that’s not what I read” I think my friend just got fed up! J
I think there are a few scans taking place this week so good luck to everyone who is having one, 3 more sleeps for me!
Missdeedee- good luck with your exam!

Ahh that's nice mrs bass, I wondered whether you'd tell them. How are you feeling about your interview? I'm working from home this morning so I'm in linen pants ands t shirt. I've not even brushed my hair yet!!
Hope the exam had gone/ is going well mdd!
AFM, well todayi feel better than I've felt in ages, not remotely sick and generally just better. This if course means I'm racked with nerves and I'm now totally convinced something has gone wrong. I'm seriously considering paying for a scan this week, despite having a scan a week on Thursday. This worry is driving me mad!

Hi ladies, the carpet fitters have just arrived. The room is almost done. Hurrah :-)
Mrs B I think you friend is right, listen to every option but you need to do what suits you as family :-)
Imp - I'm feeling better too. Less tired. The queasyiness has gone. I'm hoping its just because we are heading into pregnancy bloom territory!
03/06/2013 at 10:56
I hope you're right HF. Until I see that little baby on the screen I'm just not sure I'll believe it.
Yay for the carpet, how lovely that the room is nearly finished.
03/06/2013 at 10:57
Yeah I cracked! I really enjoy telling preople and I prefer doing it to face to face rather than having to do it over text or phone call! I really need to stop though, ive got cariied away!
the plan to focus on the interview rather than the scan isnt going too well so far!!
How soon will they be able to get you in for a private scan? If it is going to put your mind at rest, it might help. If it helps at all, ive been feeling fine for a couple of weeks now! even my tiredness is getting better!
Horsefan i hope you are right about that! Is your scan this wed or next?
03/06/2013 at 11:01
I reckon I'll be able to get in by Wednesday for a scan, we're both off work from Wednesday until Friday so I reckon during the day will be fairly quiet. I really don't want to spend the money and I don't think H would be too happy about it either. I'm going to hold off for now.
03/06/2013 at 12:29
Mrs Bass - ah, your poor H, that is a bit of a trick question! Lol. I think that your friends advise is pretty wise.
Imp - just be glad you're feeling ok. Apparently this is roughly the time when the placenta starts taking over so we're meant to start feeling better. What does your H feel about paying for a scan?
HF - I can't want to see flash of the completed room.
Two weeks until I finish my job. I can't wait. Me and this little bean don't need the stress that's coming my way right now:-(.
03/06/2013 at 12:42
Well survived the fateful bowling! Then went out for a gorgeous meal which I ending up saying goodbye to about two hours afterwards totally gutted it was really nice food too! off work today and tomorrow as have my scan tomorrow! Whoop! 13 weeks today so feel about time!
03/06/2013 at 13:14
Penny he really doesn't want to pay for a scan. In his eyes it's only an extra week to wait which I know is the sensible way to look at it, but these pregnancy hormones are not making me sensible!!!
I hope you're ok and the job isn't too bad? Try and take it as easy as you can, it's not worth getting too stressed. How was your evening with FIL? Did you get home at a reasonable time?
RL- good luck for your scan tomorrow!
03/06/2013 at 13:50
Penny, i know, im mean! I didnt make him answer though! Not long now Penny, do u have a break between finishing and stating the new on?
Rosy Lee- Good luck for tomorrow!! what time is it?
Imp how long has it been since your first scan?
Ive had a few twinges today which im sure is just more stretching etc, its just a bit unerving as i havent had any for a while! Feeling a bit nauseous too but im putting that down to eating too many cookies!
I think my friend just caught me prodding my belly trying to work out if it is firming up yet!!!! Oops!
03/06/2013 at 13:53
I keep prodding my belly too!
It'll have been 3 weeks since my lady scan this Thursday. So not long really. Then my nhs scan is a week on Thursday. Ahhhhh! Can't time go a bit quicker?!
03/06/2013 at 13:56
i think im starting to get a little bit of a bump and i keep prodding it to check. it is probably just firm blubber thought!!
Are you going to try and persuade you H or are you going to try and hold off!?
03/06/2013 at 14:05
As much as I want to I think I'm going to hold off. We're pretty skint this month and whilst I could put it on a credit card I just think that I would be foolish. I'm just going to be a *** and a nervous wreck until a week on Thursday! Poor H!
03/06/2013 at 14:09
Imp - I know what you mean about wanting a scan regardless. My H is fed up with hearing me go on about it too but there's nothing you can do to *not* want it either, is there? I got home at 9pm last night which annoyed me cos I wanted to be home by 4 or 5. It seems like we didn't get any time at home this entire weekend. So none of my washing got done either so I literally had nothing to wear this morning, cos all of my 'fat' clothes are still in the washing basket. I had a meltdown this morning, flinging clothes across my bedroom, and wailing, 'i'm so faaaat and nothing fiiiiiits me', at my poor H, who just muttered, 'you look fine', before scarpering! Also I'm so jealous that your scan is only just over a week away. I've still got 3.5 weeks until mine, and i got my BFP before you, not fair ;-)
Mrs Bass - yay for twinges and stretches, it's all good :-). Oooh yeah a little bump might be forming, that's exciting!
Having a very bad today. Have just had a rant on Mossy's thread about the electoral roll cos I'm trying to deal with problems with data today and I just don't give a monkey's about it anymore. It's at times like these that I miss drinking! Lol. I'm going to have a (caffiene free) diet coke and a caramel and see if that makes me feel any better.....
03/06/2013 at 14:11
Having said that though I have just booked dinner and an overnight stay in our wedding hotel for Saturday night as it's our anniverary on Sunday. That's cheered me up loads. I'll just keep focusing on that . I think my hormones are stuck on 'super-irritable' mode right now though
03/06/2013 at 15:01
I imagine I'll be jealous that you're getting to see your baby when your scan comes around though penny!
I had a similar tantrum last night, I feel like a right cow at the minute. Grrr!
03/06/2013 at 15:27
Penny i hate getting home late after being away, i always like to haev some time at home before the weekend is over!
has the coke and caramel helped?
I am just really sleepy and fed up now. I want to go home!
Ive set myself the target of clearing to piles of paper off my desdk to keep me occupied for a while!
03/06/2013 at 15:51
Hi all! Sorry can't manoeuvre two pages of personals on my phone! Exam was B to the ollocks!! All I was allowed to take in with me was a bottle of water, nothing else! I was in there for 15mins before it started, then 15mins reading time, then 3 hours for the exam, so cue me in the last two hours needing to go out to the loo 3 times because I was feeling so sick! It was a combination of no food for so long and the worry of going to be sick and having to wait for someone to escort me to the loo, each time I had a feeling it was getting bad I had to go to the toilet. I did tell the invigilator woman on the second trip as I was then panicking that she maybe thought I was trying to cheat or something! Lol! So long story short, I mega ran out of time, I had 5 compulsory questions, the 4th I just got started and the 5th I did nothing at all so in never going to pass, I'm past caring at the moment though!!
Penny, what date is your scan? I'm 3 and a half weeks too, 26th I go. We're going for a private scan on sat though as like all you ladies I'm constantly worrying and just need the reassurance.
Imp I know how hard it is waiting but given the expense of the scans and that your 12 week scan is early I think your doing the right thing. Do you think you'll have to go back for another nhs scan too?
Mrs Bass if all is ok on sat I'm caving and buying some mat trousers! I'm sick of squeezing myself into the two or three things that fit me!
I'm on a roll here so
HF hope the carpets down and the rooms looking good, don't forgot the pics when it's done!
RL good luck for the scan tomorrow!
Was that everyone? I think so? xx
03/06/2013 at 16:00
Mrs Bass, they did help. I have also had a cup of tea and a bag of sweets. I guess this is why I'm so fat! Lol.
Missdeedee - ah no that's not great news about your exam :-(. Or about needing to get escorted to the loo so many times. Oh well, it's over now and there's nothing you can do except relax, cos it's done, at least for now. My scan is on the 27th - it's delayed until 13 weeks as I'm on holiday at 12 weeks. We're considering a private scan before we go away though.
03/06/2013 at 16:10
Well that is that done! most of it went in the recycling bin! at least i can see some of my desk now! might takle the draws next.....maybe tomorrow!
missdede, that sounds horrible, but you might surprise yourself, maybe the questions you did answer got you enough marks to pass?!
I haev the same idea as you. I have thursday & Friday booked off so if all goes well Thurs morning in going to pop to town on friday to get some stretchy clothes and get measured for a new bra!
Penny Ive just had a couple fo sweets & really want to go to the shop to buy more but I have resisted! Thinking about dinner already though!
Could you not get them to bring your scan forward as you are oing away?
