MS, so exciting re Florida! They're really good with air con out there so you'll never be far away from a cooler temp if you need it. Have fun at aquanatal.
AFM - was supposed to be going out tonight so swapped nursery runs with H, but it's been cancelled! Still need to hang around work late as it's the first of the 3rd interviews for my replacement this evening. It was nice to set the alarm for 7 rather than 6 last night.. I spent most of yesterday designing an excel test for the interviews, I just hope I've made my instructions clear enough!
Little Bob seems ok, am keeping an eye on if I'm bruising - I knocked my knee on Monday and it looks like someone has whacked it with a hammer - but other than that no complaints from me.

Morning ladies and bumps,
MS- Hope you have a lovely time at aquanatal. Good luck with all the packing, it will be worth it when you get to Florida! So exciting.
BG- I literally couldn't get up at 6 if I wanted to any more! I used to spring out of bed, be out walking the dog etc but even though I'm not exhausted all the time getting me out of bed is a bit of a nightmare. Hope the interviews go well. I'm sure the excel test will be fine! Hope the bruising goes down soon.
AFM- Still on a high after yesterdays scan :) Went out for a meal with H last night and then sat relaxing at home discussing baby names, looking at clothes etc. Every morning from 3-4am I'm waking up about every 45 mins. Need to invest in some black out curtains as the ones we have up are pretty rubbish for keeping the light out but I seem to be tossing and turning a lot too. Told H's daughter we were having a baby girl last night and she was over the moon! :)

MS - exciting about Florida - Jealous!!
BG - Still interviewing? The joys! At least you got an extra hour in bed this morning though!
Sam - Glad the scan went well. I didn't get on yesterday so this is the first I've seen - congrats on being team pink! x
AFM - We had 20 week scan part 2 yesterday. The doctor we seen wasn't happy with part of baby's spine and wants us to go for further scans at a different hospital. He said it is most probably nothing, but in the next breath muttered something about spina bifida (but probably not!). Needless to say we are a bit worried now, but taking comfort from the fact the appointment isn't until Tuesday next week and thinking if it was more serious we would have been seen much sooner. He thinks it could be just that the baby is lying at an awkward angle so keeping our fingers crossed for this. I never do this but.....any spare vibes for a healthy picture on Tuesday will be most welcome!

Mummy S - I am so so so jealous of you going to Florida. I would kill for a holiday right now!
BG - Good luck with your interviews. Do you have some good candidates?
Sam - I am having the same issues with the curtains too! It's just so bright so early now. I love my silver curtains but might have to switch to a darker colour. Don't want a blind as would have to have 2 or one very large and expensive one as the window is huge. I just don't want to be spending the money at the moment. Maybe an eyemask would be better?!
Mrs Mack - So sorry you are dealing with this. I really think you are right. The scan would be alot sooner if they were really worried. How are you ? xxxxxx
AFM - Not alot to report. Got my first pregnancy yoga class tonight. Eeeek! Never done yoga before but feel like I should do something.

MS - woohoo! holidays!! - You enjoy - sounds ace.
BG - if the instructions aren't clear enough - surely its a test of their initiative :o)
Sam - I agree blackout curtains are defo needed - its a struggle getting back to sleep after the loo trips!
Mrs M - sending all positive vibes for Tuesday, they are prob just being uber cautious - but that doesn't make the waiting any easier does it - big hugs xxxx
LP - exciting! I was thinking of trying to do something similar - but struggling to get into any of my PE kit tbh :o(
Rosy Lee - welcome!! :o)
AFM - I've been having some odd stretchy/ stabby pains in my tummy, did a bit of goggling last night and apparently normal (uterus stretching etc) .... it is odd only appears to happen at night when I'm on the sofa! working at home this morning so having a nice chilled start writing reports :o)
06/06/2013 at 10:09
Mrs M- Sending you all the vibes possible for Tuesday. Will be thinking of you and waiting on positive news after your scan xxx
LP- I was thinking about starting pregnancy yoga too but I am being super lazy haha. I have been doing lots of walking now the weather has cheered up a bit though! Wouldn't hurt doing something to help with the flexability though. Let me know how it goes.
Rosy- Welcome to 2nd tri! Hope everything is going okay so far and looking forward to hearing more from you :)
Twink- I need to book you to come to my house! You are full steam ahead on project nursery by the sounds of it. What colour carpet have you gone for?
Weeme- I have the same pains on and off. Definitely think it's all completely normal. Ohh lucky you having a nice chilled start to your morning.
06/06/2013 at 10:21
Yes all going well so far! Defo need to get some work clothes soon sitting with my flies undone then having to remember to do them up before I stand up is so not the one! ha ha
06/06/2013 at 10:33
Rosylee that just made me spit my cuppa out!!! It's exactly how I am sat today and indeed did forget yesterday in the office (so glad I sit near the back!!!) :o) its a sexy time isnt it!! :o)

Sam - its a cream carpet, but it is bleach resistant so should protect it a littbe bit,. its being fitted on the 22nd so all the woodwork & paiting will need to be done byt then...then we have to wait til the 13thof July for the papering to be done by my friend. i really wish i could wallpaper!
06/06/2013 at 11:17
Sorry weeme! ha ha! Its glamour all the way! Just sat and ordered a skirt and trousers off Next....
06/06/2013 at 11:41
Twink- ohh will be lovely! At least if everything except the wallpapering is done then it won't take too long once the papering is started! I'm not TOO bad at papering when assisted by my mum. Left to my own devises I think I would *** it all up! Will be worth it when it's all dont and definitely want a flash!
06/06/2013 at 11:52
Rosylee - I've just been browsing trying to find some work wear with not much success :o(
06/06/2013 at 11:58
yea the papering will only take a morning coz my friend is really good at it. if i attempted it i'd make a right hash of it haha. i will deffo flash :)
06/06/2013 at 12:33
Mrs Mack- That sounds scary. Try not to worry, as you say, if they were really worried they would see you sooner surely?
AFM- I'm off work again as there is slapped cheek in school again. Went to midwife and she has taken blood to check I haven't caught it. Also heard heartbeat while I was there which was lovely!
