Couldn't see another thread so thought I'd start 1.
Not much to tell from me today though. I'm still finding it hard to get to sleep but I remembered a work colleague had borrowed my dream genii maternity pillow & I hadn't put it back in the roof so tried that (earlier than I thought I use it) & I think it helped. Toddler waking up at 6.30 isn't helping. Especially as I have a shed load of work to do & no motivation to do it. & when I get motivation said toddler wants my constant attention. Have finally managed to put her down for a morning nap (don't remember the last time she napped in the morning) so hopefully I can get stuff done.
Off to see Peppa Pig at the theatre tomorrow night then long weekend with the family which I'm really looking forward to (which includes my birthday on easter sunday so my mum'll get me a birthday cake as hubby isn't great at organising things!!)
Hi to any that follow x

Morning BK - that's annoying about not being able to get to sleep, I hope the Dream Genii helps tonight. I need to get some marking done but the kids prevent me from getting it done too.
AFM - I did another CBD this morning and it now says 3+ so I found that reassuring. I'm starting to feel really nauseous this morning so I'm just lounging in bed still with O and L whilst H does some housework, bless him.
Hi to everyone else!

Morning. Sorry I've not been on much. After being away for the weekend my sister has been visiting for the last two days.
Bk glad that the scan went well yesterday. I've also started using an extra pillow between my legs for sleeping which has helped. Much earlier this time for me too!
Ds that's great that the cbd says 3+. Enjoy your lounging around this morning, hope that the nausea eases.
Bought some maternity leggings yesterday and a new top in debenhams and some new bare minerals make up, but now we have no money for the rest of the month so need to watch that! Going for lunch at a farm shop with my sis before she goes home and then we are off to the hospice for a support meeting for bereaved parents. Not been to it before so hopefully it will be upbeat and not too saddening as we are very much of the mind set that we need to remember and cherish the positive memories of k and often talk about her in that way rather than getting upset. We're even going to have a garden party to 'celebrate' her first birthday in July so I'm hoping others there are of a similar mind set.

Hey ladies, can I please join in? I can't promise to make it on every day, as uni is pretty hectic right now, but will do my best.
BK - glad you finally managed to get a bit of sleep, and hope you managed to get some work done.
DS - glad you got your 3+, hope you've enjoyed a lazy day.
Bunny - your plans for K sound lovely, I think that the way that you are remembering the good times is a beautiful thing to do.
AFM - well, I'm only four weeks today, so still very stunned that I'm actually here. I got my 2-3 on a CBD yesterday, so planning to test again next Monday in the hope of seeing a 3+. So far I have sore boobs, and my veins on them are becoming quite visible. My stomach feels a bit odd, and I keep getting period type cramps that come and go...this has been happening since maybe Wednesday last week and I've had no spotting so assuming it's normal? I'm getting tired much easier than usual, having the occasional headache (very unusual for me) and nausea kicked in for the first time last night. I'm hoping that these are all positive signs, and looking forward to the next eight months, and of course the end result.
Thanks for having me

DS: Hope the nauseous passed, it's not fun. I found eating helps even when I'm not hungry
Bunny: That sounds lovely about the garden party for K
Saffron: So fantastic to see you here. Although I think you've picked the quietest day to join! Headaches, nausea & incredible tiredness? yep, all sound pretty normal to me, hope yours don't last too long though x

Saffron - welcome! All of what your describing is very normal x
