Good morning ladies!
HF, how was last night? Did your lo sleep in her bed all night?
my name is imp and I'm an eBay addict! I need to stop bidding for and buying maternity clothes! Eeek! I'm going to have to hide the parcels from my hubby!
I still seem to be feeling tired all the time, I wish it would bugger off! I've got my first pregnancy yoga class tonight, its not until 7.45, so who knows how I'm going to survive. I'm looking forward to the class though.

Morning imp, step away from the eBay!! Although tbf you have to get stuff, you literally will have next to nothing that will fit!
Yoga sounds good, Once I have some energy I might go back to swimming, although not sure if I can brave a swim suit!
I'm with you on the tiredness, I'm exhausted permanently. I could honestly go to bed after dinner at night! No sickness for me so far today which is good and that was even after taking the bin out this morning! I've ordered 'the trousers' this morning imp so I'll let you know when they arrive. If you've gone shopping crazy you can tell us all the good buys and the dont's! Still a bit of brown blood this morning but its getting lighter so hoping it buggers off soon!x

I hope you like them once they arrive, I'll feel very guilty otherwise!
Glad your sickness hasn't appeared today, hopefully you'll get a day off! It should maybe start to ease a bit now, I know mine did.
I actually started back up swimming on Sunday, I'm going to try and do 2 yoga classes and 1swim each week, or 2 swims and 1 yoga class. I don't want to put 4 stone on!

Imp - well, eBay is better than paying full price, so carry on ;-). Enjoy yoga tonight, let us know if its any good.
Mdd - yay for no sickness! I will be ordering 'the trousers' soon too, just waiting for payday. I'm glad that the blood seems to be stopping. I hope you feel less tired soon. Apparently, many symptoms fade after 12 wks so hopefully you'll feel better generally in a week or two.
Arm - final bits of packing today, then I'll go pick up my friends, and we'll head off to the airport! We've got an early flight tomorrow so we're staying at a hotel near the airport tonight. Can't wait!

Penny how exciting!!! I am so jealous! What have you decided about your shorts and the rest of your clothes?
18/06/2013 at 08:45
I've decided to take the maternity stuff, and also anything stretchy like jersey dresses, rather than my more restrictive or tight clothing. I know I'm not huge, but I'd rather be comfortable. I'm wearing maternity jeans on the plane so that I'm not worrying about needing to undo a button if I get bloated or uncomfortable. I still feel a bit of a fraud wearing them, which my H finds funny. He keeps reminding me that I am pregnant - but sometimes I'm still too scared to believe it! It'll be nice to not worry about hiding my little bump on holiday though :-)
18/06/2013 at 08:48
I think that's the right decision. I can't imagine anything worse than being hot and wearing clothes that are too tight! Enjoy showing of your bump!

Hi everyone one
i have been told about this post for the first tri so thought i would come on over and post, I got my BFP on friday and i am 4+5 today
18/06/2013 at 09:37
Hello ladies, I thought I would pop back to give you a quick review of my delivery I received y.day. Imp, maybe you should ignore this post!
I found all of the material really soft, its lovely!
I got these skirts from ASOS,
this is just super stretchy with an elasticised waist so can we worn post bump!
I got this in green, i thought it would also be perfect for a vintage festival im going too. Its a bit gappy between the top buttons so i may need to safety pin there!
From New Look i got these tops
although instead of blue its a raspberry coloured one which is nice!
The tops are great and fit nicely at the top, they are quite long which of course will be perfect when the bump is bigger but are a bit baggy now. (im still wearing one today!)
can be easily dressed up and I plan to wear to an engagement party next month. Might have to get some maternity spanx thought as the material is a bit clingy around the bum and hips! It is a really nice length too!
It is not as dark as i was expecting, wouldn’t call it navy! Really nice and comfy though and can be quite casual or can be dressed up!
I also got a plain vest top too! Next on my list is maternity tights!
Good luck with all the scans coming up, I will be lurking for photos!! Have a nice holiday Penny!

Hi neverlosehope! Nice to see you over here :-)
Hello Mrs Bass - thanks for the reviews. That ASOS pencil skirt is nice and I plan to get those maternity multipacks of tops from NL too, they seem quite good value. That maxi dress is gorgeous. You've got some really nice bits there. And thanks, I will! Can't wait :-D
18/06/2013 at 14:45
Right ladies. I'm off to collect my friends soon and then won't be able to log on much after that, so good luck Mrs P, Jem and missdeedee for your scan!. I'll try to log on and see those baby pics if I can!
18/06/2013 at 14:53
Mrs Bass, that's a great list, thanks for that!
Penny, have a fab holiday lovey, I so wish it was me, it will be great. And good choice on the clothes! My scans just the day before you so not sure if you'll be back? Hope it's great weather and you have a brilliant relaxing break xx
18/06/2013 at 14:57
missdeedee I fly back on the 26th so I'll miss your scan, but I'll be thinking of you :-) x

Hi ladies, late the party today.
Yes LO slept thru in her new big girl bed. However she was sooooo excited about it, it took us till 9pm to persuade her to actually go to sleep!!
Had a crisis overnight with the riding club I belong too & am on committee for. The Ride Organiser who is due to run a ride a week on Sunday has quit citing "too much hassle" which means she can't be bothered with our structure surrounding spliting the ride into several sections so if an emergency occurs its easier to locate a fallen rider or sick horse etc. There are at least 20 paid for entries already so we really don't want to cancel ...
..I can foresee I'm going to be talked into taking it on .... I'm the only member of committee that doesn't run a ride all year. ( Quite happy with my job of running website!)

Imp, keep on ebaying, then you can recommend us lots of lovely things.
MDD, hope the sickness stayed away all day!
Penny, hope you have a fabulous holiday!
Neverlosehope, congratulations on you BFP and welcome to 1st tri
Mrs Bass, nice to see you again, hope you are having fun on 2nd tri. Lots of lovely purchases there. My bank balance may not thank you though.
HorseFan, brill news on LO. Hope you don't end up taking too much on at the riding club.
Afm, one work day down, one to go. Just realised that I may be on to the 2nd tri threads when I get back. I'm scared! Will miss you lovely ladies ( although I know a few of you will be heading up before me)
18/06/2013 at 19:04
Hi ladies, like NLH, I was told to pop over to 1st Tri today.
Got my BFP on Saturday and think I'm 4+5?!
(Really needs to get down with the post ttc lingo)
18/06/2013 at 21:29
Hello rebajay! Hello NLH too! :)
Evening ladies, can I join please?
I got my bfp today and I think I'm 7-8 weeks, not entirely sure though! I've made a MW appointment for Tuesday and I should get a date for an early scan then so should know more next week.
Feeling fine other than a touch of heartburn and peeing every two minutes. I've avoided morning sickness in my previous pregnancies so hoping to avoid it this time aswell.
Hope you are all well x
