Firstly, wishing Ally a very happy 30th birthday, have a super day!
I replied to yesterday's thread last night updating that I plucked up the courage to tell my boss, it went well but he's unsure if we should tell CEO until after a meeting with him nex Wedbesday, I hope he changes his mind as I'm desperate to go public now!
Otherwise, apart from a cold just in time for the long weekend, all is good!

Glad your boss was understanding, only a couple extra days if you have to wait, most of that is Bank Holiday anyway!
So much for my lie in this morning! H got up early to go to his mum's to get her DIY done, and was wittering on to me while getting ready so here I am wide awake. Off to my sisters later and taking the children swimming, then tonight I'm off to a Maundy Thursday meal at Church while H slaves away! Gonna catch up on OBEM seeing as I'm up!
Morning, and a very happy birthday Ally, hope you have a fabulous day!
BG, hope your boss changes his mind and you can go public, you've been so patient!
Not a lot planned here today after yesterday's adventures - boys were both horrid by the evening and I felt really drained. Need to take Joshua to school and do a job that I forgot earlier in the week, then SIL is popping in with easter eggs which will be nice. Joshua finishes at 1.30 and if they are behaving, I'm going to plonk them in front of a DVD and laze about. We're not going away now, my parents said the caravan is still just too cold so we will try to do some other nice stuff over the weekend instead.

Morning all. Thanks for the birthday wishes. We're heading out soon for a fun filled family day out, probably more for the kids than me but H and I are going out on Saturday night. I've been spoiled this morning with lots of lovely presents. Hope everyone is well,will try and get back on later for personals x

Bridget - have you got to work over the bank holidays? You've managed to keep it hidden this long so hopefully the extra few days won't be too bad.
Porkchop - enjoy your day! You definitely deserve a rest.
Margot - mmmm, easter eggs! I think I need to get H to buy me one. I've been eyeing them all up for a little while now.
Ally - Happy Birthday! Have a brilliant family day out!
AFM - think I felt baby from the outside last night, but I was just dropping off to sleep - so it could have just been inside and my brain getting confused! Pirate Wife - those are some pretty shoes you showed yesterday, wearing flats to a wedding is something I was trying to not think about. I do love my heels for dressing up, especially as my H is so much taller than me, I end up looking tiny. I tried the dress on again yesterday and worked out if I try and alter it, I'll be able to wear the dress without revealing my bra and having to wear a vest top underneath. Just need to have a proper think about how to shorten the straps!

Sapphire, not not workin over the holidays, not in again until Wednesday, but it's just another week. We've held off telling H's nan in case one of his dozens of cousins puts something on facebook, and I'm desperate to wear maternity cloths now, I've literally run out of work wear.

Morning BG, good work on telling your boss. Maybe he doesn’t want to tell the CEO yet, but I wouldn’t let that stop you wearing what you like again. It wouldn’t be your fault if people guessed from seeing a bump!
PC, sounds like you have a nice day lined up. Enjoy :)
Margot, Oooh Easter eggs! Hope you find something nice to do over the weekend
Ally, happy birthday! Have a fab day!
Sapphire, the straps are a little bit too big for me too (just under the arm shows a little) but think a tiny pin would hold it in place. Plus maybe my boobs will grow again and hold it up?! I’m a flats girl anyway so it’s a relief I don’t have to wear heels!
AFM – last day in our office before moving to a new office after Easter! It’s a busy day as I’m covering for my boss, and it’s also year-end so lots of bits and bobs to do in between packing for the move! No baby news. Feeling fine and hoping it lasts for many many weeks to come!

BG, weird that your boss isn't sure about telling CEO. It must be such a different world out there in the private sector!
PC, My hubs does that to me "you stay in bed and rest dear while i bang and crash about the room talking 19 to the dozen".
Margot, shame about not going away, but shivering in a caravan isn't good.
Ally, Many happy returns of the day!! The big 3-0 woohoo!!
sapphire, i missed yesterday i'll have to go back and have a look!
PW, year end here too - busy busy busy! It's like trying to land a jumbo jet on a postage stamp here!
AFM, i think i saw baby move when i was laying in the bath this morning, awesome! I'm off to a pampered chef party tonight, then a lovely full day with hubs tomorrow including a lie in because he's working a twilight tonight and won't be home until nearly 2. Normally he's an early riser and i'm not, so this works out lovely for me! I'm seeing my bestie for lunch on saturday, driving up to banbury to see another buddy on sunday then driving with my mum and another friend to Chichester on monday to see my baby sister who is at uni there. A full but lovely long weekend!

Bridget - I know not ideal, but at least you know it's not too long now. Also, sorry, I don't know why, but I had got the impression that outside of work that you'd told people already.
Pirate Wife - yeah, that's what I was thinking about a pin! Although I'm hoping the boobs don't grow too much more, I've already gone up to a 38G and I know I need to be remeasured from this one. Hope today at work goes smoothly.
Pombear - sounds like a brilliant long weekend ahead of you there!

Hi ladies, good to catch up with how everyone is doing, I don't seem to get on much at the moment.
Have been feeling really rubbish the past 2-3 weeks (headaches, feeling sick and dizzy). I went to the docs yesterday and have a urine infection! So, I'm now on my second set of antibiotics since being pregnant, which sucks. Hopefully I'll start to feel a bit more normal again now though.
Otherwise all good. Getting proper kicks now which you can see/feel from outside which is lovely. G is being fab at the moment, finally sleeping a little better (touch wood) and we've started a reward chart which seems to be working wonders for his behaviour. Just wish I didn't feel so tired all the time. I'm really not getting the whole blooming bit. I do suck at pregnancy!!
Anyway, have a fab long weekend all (in case I don't get on again).

I have told a few people outside work, but only as I've seen them, no mass announcement. I have a lot of people from work on fb and didn't want it getting back to there via that method.
Well boss decided to hold off telling CEO, I told him that doesn't sit right with me. Really I don't want CEO to think I'm wasting him time by spending an hour talking about resourcing, only to announce a day or two later and have CEO think that I (rather than boss) withheld that info. Gah, stupid work politics. So conclusion is to see if resourcing comes up at meeting, if it does then tell him, if not then tell him at end of meeting. I know resourcing will come up though.
Anyway, some personals...
PC and M - hope you both had lovely days
Ally - hope you enjoy the chocolate place, sounds like my kinda place!
PB - how lovely, hopefully your H will feel it soon. Have a fan weekend, sounds jam packed!
Dinx - boo to the infection, hopefully once that's cleared you'll feel a lot better.
PW - sounds like you deserve a rest after today!
Happy Easter all!
