Hope your all doing well, and babies too.
Well I've got to wait in today for a delivery for H, boooooring! Never mind, just means I can put my feet up and chillax.
I've decided i'm going to call my midwife team this morning as babies movements have been less for this past week. Still getting the "10 movements in 24hrs" that they say, but a little concerned that they are reduced and not as strong, so I shall see what they say. May go to aquanatal tonight, depending on if I can be bothered, but not been for the past two weeks, so really should.
Have a fab day everyone!

MummySimpson hope you have a relaxing day and get a good result from the MW. Lots of baby wriggly vibes coming your way.
Afm not a lot to report. Working fom home today so hope to get out and enjoy the sunshine at lunch. Not feeling much baby movement yet, a few flutters but that's it. I'm starting to get uncomfortable and struggling to sleep. Bought a dream genie pillow but can't really get on with it. I have a woman coming tomorrow to give me a pregnancy massage, I can't wait!
Quick tmi question, but is anyone else suffering really bad trapped wind?
Hi to all that follow.

MrsP- thanks for the vibes. Enjoy your day working from home and the sunshine. Hope your pregnancy massage helps you to sleep better. Can't really say I've been suffering with trapped wind, but I've always been a windy person lol. x

MS- I posted a few days ago saying that baby movements aren't feeling as strong. I did a quick google and it seems perfectly normal at this stage. Let me know what the MW says but I'm sure as long as you are feeling movements it is all fine!
MrsP- Hope you manage to get a nice break in the sunshine for lunch. I hope you manage to get on with the pillow, might be better a bit later in pregnancy? I struggled to sleep for about a week at your stage but then it fixed itself.. up until now! Fx it does for you :)
AFM- Nothing much to report. My sister sent me some pictures of clothes she has got for baby last night. She really has got a better wardrobe than me already! Had to politely tell her not to buy any more as she has so much 0-3 month size clothes I'm worried lots aren't going to get worn. So greatful though because my mum and sister have been buying bits and pieces for a while now so that we have everything ready :)

Mummy S - Have you been doing more the last week? Moving about, walking etc? I always find baby sparkles moves less when I move more. I am sure it is nothing to worry about but speak to the midwife to put your mind at rest
Mrs Penguin - I wish my wind was trapped! I just keeps coming much to OHs amusement! Hope you get a better sleep after the massage. I did also have a period of bad sleep around 18 - 19 weeks. It sorted itself out though
Sam - That's lovely that they have been buying stuff. We got some more bits ourselves last night, I can't keep OH out of mothercare at the moment! No real outfits just sleepsuits and basics. Got a good selection on the go now. Just need some basic whites.
AFM - Confused! I have bought long sleeved and long legged body suits for the baby. But do I need vests? Popper vest type things? I guess they are good under other outfits? Help!
Yoga tonight, can't be bothered but I know I will feel great afterwards so going to keep on at it.

MS - defo call midwife. Hopefully baby just changed position or something but doesn't hurt to get it checked out
MrsP - I live my dream genii. What is you don't like? The whole turning over thing?
Sam - how lovely of your sister - but yes, babies quickly grow out of 0-3. My 'little' one was only in them a month or two max and she never fitted the newborn size! But she was quite a big'un at birth :-)
AFM - went to visit MIL yesterday. Was given a tour of the new decorating. Whilst the colours etc were nice, whoever she got to it, hasn't done a v.good job. I was quite shocked. The cutting in at corner between wall/ceiling was terrible (seriously I can do a better job and I'm not exactly a professional) and he has missed half a ceiling in one bedroom.. I didn't know what to say - didn't want to burst her bubble but equally don't like the idea of her being ripped off.
Lazy morning planned this morning followed by pick-your-own this affy.

LP - yes, you need vests! We found baby lived in nappy+vest permanently. Then outfit or sleepsuit went over the top. If you are planning on using cloth nappies - you usually need next size in vests.

HF, it is the turning over. I've always slept on my side but turn frequently. I keep getting tangled with the pillow and sheet! I think it will be lovely when I'm bigger and less mobile, and it's great as a back support when sitting. I've taken to using a really old flat as a pancake pillow we had which I can turn with me.

Good morning, we have a lovely sunny day today, hopefully it stays for the weekend!
Mummys- when should you start to feel the “10 in 24hrs”? Enjoy your relaxed day!
Mrs P- Im the same with you on the baby movements. My placenta is at the front which I imagine would prevent me feeling some kicks but I wouldn’t have thought it would stop me feeling the baby wiggling around?!
Sam that is really sweet of them! My mum has bought a few things but only when Im with her so she gets thing I like and that I need!
Little Pixie- apparently they do need the popper vest under the baby grows, especially as newborns!
HorseFan that sounds awful, has the decorator defiantly finished?
AFM- one of my best mates text last night to say his brother and wife had been for their 12 week and found out she had mc which is really sad. Makes me feel so lucky to be doing so well.
On a happier note, today is my Friday! Yay! H’s band are playing at Camp Bestival this weekend so me and one of the other wives and their 2 yr old are going for the weekend. Weather should be good so im looking forward to enjoying the sun, having a wonder and catching some music. On the other hand this will be my first festival while pregnant (therefore sober!!) so not looking forward to sleeping in the tent, especially as H will be sozzled!
