Sorry I've been such a bad MD'er lately. I'm struggling to get up in the mornings so haven't been on here before work and after work everyone is away for the day.
Hope everyone is ok and all your pregnancies are going great. I'm doing fine, just working away and counting down the weeks!!!!
Happy Thursday everyone xxx

Morning CA! Good to see you :-) We all have busy lives and times that make it harder to post. The main thing is you're getting your rest etc...I'd not want to get up super early either if it weren't for O :D
Sorry I didn't get back yesterday ladies...between my Mum being readmitted to hospital, a broken boiler and the traumatic monthly trip to the hairdressers with O it was a bit of a crazy one! Today is O's 2nd birthday; can't believe my baby boy is 2!! We're going to a petting farm and country park near our home today, and then cooking him his favourite dinner of roast chicken with all the trimmings later :-) ILs are popping round today I think, and we're hoping to have a mini tea party at my parents this weekend if my Mum is home and up to it...she really wants to see him open his presents!
Will try and pop back later, hope you're all well xx

CA I hope you're not working too hard, although I suspect you probably are! I bet you're looking forward to your holiday now. Not long!
Coco that does sound a busy day, I hope your mum is well enough for this weekend. Today sounds lovely, I hope you have a fab time.
Well I'm shattered. I think the first tri tiredness has returned, the insomnia has too though sadly! Anyways I'm not going to moan about it, only a couple of days until the weekend and I can chill out.

CA - good to hear from you! Glad to hear things are going well for you
Coco - happy birthday O! Hope you have a lovely day celebrating and I really hope your mum is on the mend soon.
Imp - sorry you're feeling tired :( yay to it nearly being the weekend! Any plans?
SaSaSi - love the shoes! Not long until the scan now.
AFM - not a horrific nights sleep but not great either. Hips started hurting half way through the night again and every time I turned over I had quite a painful uncomfortable feeling inside my tummy - can't really describe it any better than that! Garage wasn't as bad as I thought yesterday although I do wonder about putting all the little bits and bobs on the van when they cant really be packed, like buckets, tools etc. I'm sure the removal men know what they are doing! We put a few things on gumtree yesterday and a lot has been sold already! Very happy. The loft is on the agenda today! :/

Candy Apple - good to see you on here - don't feel bad about not posting alot, I have been the same, sometimes life is just too busy!
Coco - Hoping your Mum is going to have a speedy recovery bless her, she has been through the mill hasn't she have a lovely day today for O's birthday, sounds like you have a lovely day planned
Imp - Boo to insomnia, its pants! hopefully you can have a nice chilled out weekend
Sasasi - love the shoes, they are fab!!
Browny - sounds like you had a positive day yesterday with the garage, hope today goes well with the loft.
AFM - all ok, restless legs seems to be easing if I make sure I drink lots. Planning to get all the baby stuff down from the loft at the weekend and give it a once over and list what we have so I can then take off the to buy list.hoping I have some gender neutral clothes although I think I got rid of a hell of a lot as we thought we would not have any more.

CA - nice to see you! Hope work is going ok. Third tri is coming up quickly now isn't it!
Coco - Happy birthday to O! Hope you have a fabulous day and that your mum feels well enough to have you round on the weekend. Chicken roast sounds yummy.
Imp - sorry about the tiredness. I don't think I'm quite back to first tri levels but I am really tired by 8 now. Bed is so appealing.
Sasasi - LOVE those shoes. I'm dying to get some irregular choice. You can pick several outfits from those from the colours too.
Browny - good luck with tackling the loft! Sounds like you had a productive day yesterday but after the house is all done you need to take it easy! Can't be helping the hips/stomach pain.
NB - that'll be exciting! Sorting through the clothes, bring back memories too no doubt. And if you don't have many gender neutral clothes it's a fab excuse for a spot of shopping. I got a bag full from MIL on the weekend and that was so fun. Can't believe I will ever birth something so tiny though!
AFM - no baby news really. H handed in his paternity leave form which makes it all seem a bit more real. I won't get my MatB1 for another 3 weeks though so my forms have to wait until then. Think I've decided when I'm going though - 39 weeks start maternity with 2 weeks annual leave before that. Had some poo news that H's company will be going through job cuts and restructures yesterday but they're thinking it can take up to 2 years to get the ball rolling so he will be staying til after paternity to make sure he gets time off and then will be looking for something new. He was mega depressed yesterday but it's not imminent so hopefully we won't both be out of a job at the same time!

NB - I find when I drink more I feel so much better. Good luck tackling the baby stuff! Hope you've kept more neutral than you think.
Jonesy - sorry to hear about your H's work. It's such a stressful time and to have it hanging over you for that length of time isn't nice at all!
03/04/2014 at 13:09
Forgot to add that I'm feeling exhausted today. I was sick this morning. Maybe I overdid it yesterday so going to take it easy today. H is running around doing loads and I feel bad :(

CA - don't worry, we know you care even if you're not on here. Hope you feel less tired soon.
Coco - Happy Birthday O! Hope he has a lovely day. And vibes your mum gets better soon.
Imp - Sorry to hear the insomnia is back, bring on the weekend, eh?
Sasasi - fabulous shoes, love them!
Browny - I told you to take it easy young lady, don't feel bad - there are two of you to look after remember. Do as your told or there will be big trouble!
NB- exciting going through everything - and if you did throw most away, then you'll just have to buy more!!
Jonesy - sorry to hear about H's job, but these things can take a while, so once baby is here and you are a bit settled, maybe he can look for something new. Keep my fingers crossed it works out OK.
AFM - not much to report - went for MW/Consultant appt today and it was a bit of a waste of time to be honest. They did my BP and wee sample, asked how my Crohn's was and then sent me on my merry way. Too early to hear the heartbeat allegedly! Pah. Oh well. Five weeks yesterday until my 20 week scan so I shall focus on that now,

Browny - sounds like you had a productive day yesterday! But do not try to do too much, you need to rest a little / a lot too. Being sick is not fun :(
NB - FX you do not have to buy too much ...then again shopping is always fun!
Jonesy - FX your OH gets something before it comes to any of that. Not the news you needed at the moment and Im sure your OH is gutted but everything always pans out for the best x
Gavi - I heard our babies heartbeat at 16weeks, I thought that was standard?! Though I am in NI. Boo!! FX your 20 wk scan flies in for you.
Stupidly hungry today...think Im going to go for a chocolate bar lol
