I really hope there's no thread yet because everyone either had a wonderful nights sleep, or they're busy getting babies out!!
as always, baby out vibes to Counter, Bertie, and Trifle.
not much going on for me, going to pop in to house of Fraser after work to try to exchange colours on those polarn o pyret bits, hopefully they let me. If not, Holly Jolly will look lovely in her blue and green print :)

morning Wispa. I only joined the thread yesterday so didn't want to start today.
Hope you get your stuff changed ok today.
I second the baby out vibes for those who need them.
AFM - I've had a return of insomnia so I've been up since about 4am. Gah. Baby CA is kicking away nicely this morning which is lovely. I got on ok at the mw yesterday. She measured me and wrote down 26cm. I was 27+5 yesterday so the measurement seems a bit small but then she never mentioned anything so I guess she would have said if she was concerned? A quick Google leads me to believe that 2cm either way is ok?!?
Hope everyone has a lovely Thursday. Not long until the weekend xxx

Baby out vibes to all those that want or need them.
Monnie I hope you're ok.
Wispa good luck with the exchanging, did you buy them in HOF?
I'm in a grump today, bad nights sleep and a headache do not make for a happy imp! My ball seems to be helping my hips so much though, I've been sitting and bouncing for at least an hour each day and so far the pain is a lot less. I'm still going to ask for a physio referral though in case it gets worse.
Busy day at work today so I might not get back on until tonight.

Morning wispa :)
Hope you manage to exchange them. I may have to have a look on their website, you seem to get se cute bits from there. Not that my H would be best pleased as I can't seem to stop buying little clothes!
Had a nice day out yesterday and mil treated me to a new dress for when baby has come. It's hard not knowing what you will fit Into though. Counter you asked about the pains I was getting, just achey in my back and pelvis and have some fairly strong braxton hicks in the night. Last night I was almost crying as the pressure of her moving in my pelvis was all a bit much And made me wee 7 times!
Baby out vibes for counter and trifle, and myself, ha!

Morning CA I missed you. I'm sure the mw would have said if there was an issue, they'd have referred you for a scan. Boo to the insomnia, hopefully the holiday helps.
I hope the lack of posts means there's lots of babies on the way!
Wispa, good luck with House Fraser. I imagine they'll let you. If not I remember your stuff from polarn o pyret and it's all gorgeous, I'm sure she'll look lovely in her blue and green print :)
CA, have a fab holiday lovely lady!
AFM, my arm isn't quite so achey today after my whooping cough jab yesterday. I'm surprised at just how much it hurt...what a wimp! Off to pick up some Easter goodies for my godkids later, otherwise a fairly quiet day.
Hi to all who follow, happy Thursday!

I just posted a thread at the same time! Here was my post-
Morning lovelies. How's everyone doing today? Hopefully the lack of thread at gone 8am means some of you are off having babies? Sorry I didn't make it on yesterday, I was feeling fairly rubbish most of the day, dizzy still and a bit sick. I'm feeling loads better today, but have an appt to see the MW anyway to check bp and iron levels. Appt isn't till 9.30 so I've dropped J at nursery and am back home for a little while having a chill before heading to the MW then work. Bliss! Hope everyone's well today, I'll try to check in again later for personals.
Wispa, I hope they let you swap, If not the colours were still really pretty. Enjoy your day generally.
CA, lovely to see you here, sorry I didn't get on to welcome you yesterday. Boo to the insomnia, it sucks lying awake. I think 2cm either way is completely fine and you've a lovely trim bump.
10/04/2014 at 08:20
Wow how slow did I type lol.
CA hope you get a good sleep today to make up for it. I was always 2cm behind on my measurements until the other week and now I'm 1cm bigger so don't worry. 2 either way is fine.
Imp glad the ball is helping. Defo ask for a referral though as you don't want to be in pain all the time! Hope work goes ok for you today and no more mardy clients!
10/04/2014 at 08:22
Wow, how slow was I at typing lol!
Imp, sorry you had a bad sleep, but I'm so glad to hear that your ball is helping you lots. Good idea to still go for the referral though, better safe than sorry and all that. I hope your day at least goes quickly today and that you're soon back home again.
Bertie, your day out yesterday sounds lovely, so kind of your mil to treat you to a new dress. What's it like? Sending baby out vibes x
CA, the mw would have definitely said something if she was concerned and as Imp says you would have been referred for a scan. Boo to your insomnia, I hope lounging in the sunshine helps :)
10/04/2014 at 08:23
Ha, jinx Bertie, our first sentence is almost identical!
Figaro glad the jab was ok, I thought it would be worse than it was, I'm sure my flu one hurt more. Mmm Easter treats, send some my way ;)
Sg glad your getting it checked, hope the app goes well and a bit of extra time at home before work can't be bad.
Gah, how can so many people post at once, I'm not that slow am I?
Imp, sorry you're feeling crappy, I hope you pick up as the day goes on. I'm glad the ball is helping, but seeing a physio seems like a good plan in case they can help.
Bertie, yay for a new dress, hopefully it will fit! (I have to go dress shopping for a bridesmaids dress over Easter so I know where your will it fit worry is coming from!) Lots of baby out vibes for you!
Fig, I'm glad the arm is less sore, and you're not a wimp, it's ouchy! Enjoy your chilled day.
10/04/2014 at 08:24
Ha I just don't think I can keep up today figaro!
10/04/2014 at 08:25
SG, glad you're feeling lots better but good that you're still getting checked out. Enjoy your chill :)
10/04/2014 at 08:26
Me neither Bertie, it's too fast for my slow fingers!
10/04/2014 at 08:38
Hey Wispa, hope you get the switch you want but I loved those colours anyway :)
CA - *definitely* she'd have said if it was small. There's a margin of error anyway, plus I think going forward they're more looking for the trend of growth so if she didn't see what she expected she'd send for a scan right off :)
Imp - good call re asking for referral. I wish I had. Hope it's a better night tonight for you, bloody insomnia! The arch-enemy of the pregnant lady.
Bertie - new dress is all good! And it's promising you're getting pains (although I shouldn't really say that based on my experience ha ha), sometimes that pressure is unbearable, feels like baby is fighting its way out through every organ and bit of flesh in its way lol!
Figaro - good news your arm has eased off so quickly, hope it continues that way.
SG - glad you're seeing MW, you don't seem in a good way at all. Hope all is well. Maybe you've been fighting a virus or sudden low iron. Hopefully it's very fixable.
I had a rubbish night. Sleep just didn't come plus I had some pains. I dozed but didn't sleep properly until 5.30, to 8am. Yuck. Am v grumpy and have headache again! Have option to go to MW appt or not today (we spoke on phone y/day after my consultant appt). Tempted to skip it as if she doesn't see my high blood pressure she can't lecture me about home birth, which probably isn't on the cards anyway. And still nowt from my sis. Feel so sad. It's her b/day today so I have to contact her and be all bright n' breezy!
Did LeeLee & Monnie make it on y/day?, *waving* at them in case not.

Gosh this thread is moving fast today!
Wispa - hope HOF let you exchange some bits :)
Candy Apple - Don't worry about your first measurement, I measured 24 cm at my 28 week appointment and the midwife wasn't that concerned. The first measurement tends to be a benchmark and as long as you are steadily increasing each time I don't think they worry too much. Hope the pregnancy insomnia doesn't last too long!
Imp - sorry to hear you are in pain, definitely ask for a physio referral, they can show you little things to do to make life a little more comfortable!
Bertie - Big baby out vibes for you! Glad you had a nice day yesterday :)
Figaro - Glad your arm isn't hurting too much. 2 days on and mine is still red and sore :( Guess my body didn't like the jab!
SG - Glad you have a midwife app, hopefully they can get to the bottom of the dizzyness, it can't be very nice!
Counter - I was hoping when you didn't appear on the first page that you might be otherwise occupied! Lots of baby out vibes for you!
AFM - Again not too much to report, arm is still red and sore from whooping cough jab, but I will survive! Lots of wriggly movements from baby, I hope the saying 'active in the womb, relaxed out of the womb' is true!

Hi just a quick hello to you all from me and Grace and sending baby vibes to all of you who are getting close now especially Counter. Xxx
