Morning everyone. Hope you are all well.
Didn't get to the thread until late yesterday so thought I would start one instead! Although I'm having trouble checking it at work as the mobile Internet signal is poor and it doesn't like loading up the page. Blackat I think you asked how far along I am, I think I'm 7 weeks, although docs would date me at 8. My tummy is so big already!! Its bloated all the Time and I look the same size as I did when 16 weeks pregnant with k! I know I had a small bump with her and this time round I already have more of a pot belly anyway, but if it continues to look like this I don't know how I'm going to hide it for 5-6 weeks!

Bunny - I'm also feeling bloated at the moment, in fact it feels like I'm gaining pounds by the day! Have a good day at work.
AFM, I've not been around for a few days as we were away for the weekend. Had a nice break but glad to be home to my bed and shower! Pregnancy wise I'm feeling much better than I did on Friday and haven't had to take much paracetamol at all since then so I'm pleased about that, still really tired though. In other news, I'm off to see a psychic medium with mum and her friend tonight, let's hope he doesn't give away my secret haha.

Bunny - I can relate to the bloating! Hopefully It will ease soon.
Afm - sorry for my negative post yesterday, I feeling so down :( its my day off today so I plan to rest! Its been an emotional rollercoaster since thursday night.
hi to all that follow xxxx

Hello my munchkins, hope you're all well.
Bunny - They say second pregnancies start showing sooner. Won't be long before we need a bump flash from you!
WG - Glad you're feeling brighter. My nan loves going to psychics even though neither of us really believe! Always fun though.
Boo - Why are you down lovely? Have a hug!
AFM - Not much news. Hubs is away tonight so nice night in and early night of star fishing for me. 2 sleeps until scan day!
25/02/2014 at 10:59
Bunny - yep, bloating tends to happen for a week or two, then can go - mine went but is turning into a little bump now!
WG - Glad you're feeling so well, have fun tonight!
boo - hope you're ok x
Ducky - enjoy your early night!
I'm still feeling crap, and was in such a bad mood yesterday - didn't help that I ended up tipping my lunch all over the kitchen floor just after taking it out the fridge yesterday morning! Feel a little better this morning, although still constant nausea and horribly itchy skin everywhere - it's driving me mad!
I'm dreading having to tell everyone about the baby this time, worried it's going to go against me when I tell work, and also worried that the people in the society who I'm doing the show with in a few weeks are going to tell me that I can't do it anymore (I'm sharing a role with another girl so they could just get rid if they really wanted). Think the stress and worry of it have been causing my bad moods recently. At least my friends and family who don't yet know will be happy for me (I hope!).
Anyway, that's my moan for the day!

Thanks PP, I always worry about work anyway, and feel like I'm being left out of a lot of stuff - there's me and another colleague who do the same job, supposed to be on this one particular project, except she's the one who's getting involved in it and all the trips, and I'm getting nothing. It doesn't help that my boss is in the US, so I never see her, let alone hear from her. Anyway, enough about that - helps to just get it out . I'm also struggling with cooking, evenings tend to be the worse time for me anyway and there's been a lot of them recently where I've planned to cook, got home and just can't so MrDD's had to fend for himself - he doesn't particularly mind as he'll tend to just get a takeaway instead!
25/02/2014 at 12:06
Thank you ducky, DD and PP. I am feeling much better today :)
Ducky - only 2 sleeps to go!! Very exciting!!
Deedee- it will be a relief to tell work, I understand where you are coming from though.
PP - i havent had an issuue cooking yet, but eating i have! I will be half way through a meal and feel sick, I cried yesterday whilst attempting to eat lunch as I felt awful. Ha!
25/02/2014 at 12:15
Hello all, I hope nobody minds me peeping around the door here! I'm not sure I 'know' anyone other than Ducky so just wanted to say hello. I used to be on MD OT a bit but never really graduated properly from Hitched OT.
Deedee, I feel a bit the same about telling work as things are so up in the air with my job being a temp contract, it's all added stress isn't it.
PicklePants I've not been great with cooking either the last few days, the sickness has really kicked in so the most I can do is stick something in the oven and hope it doesn't burn too much! H hates cooking so he got a takeaway the other night while I nibbled biccies... but he ended up with food poisoning so not going to try that again any time soon.
25/02/2014 at 12:39
Bunny - my bloating seems to get worse throughout the day. Sometimes I look about 20 weeks pregnant!
WG - glad you had a good weekend and you're feeling better. May it continue! Let us know how you get on at the medium!
Boo - no need to apologise. First tri is really hard and sometimes we need to have a moan. Thats what this place is for!
Ducky - you must be so excited for your scan to see them again :)
DD - don't worry about work, its really not worth it (wish I could take my own advice though!)
PP - hope you are ok x
Pandorasbox - welcome :) tell us about yourself. How far gone are you?
AFM - bit down about the redundancy but I'll be ok. Just a sad ending but this is right for me right now as it was getting me down and stressed and I hated working there. At least we'll be able to move quicker now. Got all that to look forwards to! Going to spend the week up north with my mum and sister next week which will be nice.
Thought I'd want to go to second tri asap but going to wait until 14 weeks as I still can't believe I've got this far. Xxxx

Hi browny, thanks for the welcome. Your username seems familiar to me but not sure why! I'm 10 weeks, H and I expecting our first, we had a private scan at 8 weeks as we were too excited to wait and everything was good. Just waiting for the NHS scan appointment to come through now :)
25/02/2014 at 13:38
Bunny - sorry to hear you are feeling uncomfortable, hope it eases soon.
WG - weekend sounds lovely. Hope the medium keeps quiet. I'm not really into that stuff personally but I bet it's interesting.
Boo - that's what we are here for. Hope you feel perkier soon.
Ducky - how awesome that you'll see the sprouts again so soon...look forward to the pic!
DD - sorry to hear work is rubbish. Easier said than done, but don't focus on it too much...there are more important things in life, one of which currently resides in your belly.
PP - don't cook if you don't have to. Hope you feel better soon
PB - welcome to 1st Tri (finally!!) - how are you doing date twin?!
Browny - you stay here as long as you want lovely, can't believe you'll be off soon!
AFM - I just got back from being at the midwife for TWO hours! So many forms and questions and then had to wait ages in the blood test queue. They still date me by my LMP so think I am further ahead than I am. I look forward to proving them right at my 12 week scan, hopefully. Other than that, I am quite tired and a bit grumpy today but nothing in the way of nausea which is nice for a change.
Hi to all that follow! x

Hi everyone! Haven't been posting on the thread too much because I don't find I have time for personals and i don't want to be rude and just post about myself!!!
Bunny - I feel really bloated too, only a few weeks though till you can tell everyone! I was actually thinking I might start measuring myself each week to see if I am actually getting bigger or if it's all in my head!!
WG good luck tonight!! How interesting would it be though if she did guess.
Boo a day off of rest sounds perfect, hope you're enjoying it!
Ducky I think I'll join you with the early night (not literally of course!), I was on call last night so feel like hell right now, like I'm going to fall asleep at my desk. No doubt I'll get home and perk up. grrr.
DD hope you're wrong and work take it really well, if your good at your job and eager to continue on things then I see no reason why you shouldn't. Hope you're feeling better soon.
PB Hi!! You know me too I go under a different chocolatey name elsewhere! Nice to see you here.
Browny - that sounds like a really positive way to look at it, and a week with your family will be nice too. Stick around here as long as you like! No point rushing off.
Gavi - PRUNE!!!
AFM I am 7 weeks today and I'm a Blueberry apparantly. Can't quite believe I'm 7wks tbh. Sickness is lingering, I've never felt so hungry and sick all at once it's horrible. I told work last week (not sure if I've updated since then), I nearly passed out in front of a colleague so I had to tell her, then I had to tell boss. He's been good so far and is already thinking ahead for when I'll be off (it's hard to recruit in our industry). I've got out of the phase of wanting to tell lots of people now though so I'm finding it easier to keep the secret.

Surely there must be another fruit the same size as a prune, that is less gross than a prune. Actually another of my apps says kumquat.
So bubble looks like this.
Hope you feel better soon Malteasers...I went through that phase of enjoying the secret...I am starting to get bored of it now, and just want to tell people!!
25/02/2014 at 17:32
Weather girl hope you have fun tonight at the medium.
Boo - Hope you have enjoyed a day of rest
Ducky enjoy your quiet night in.
DeeDee I'm sure people will be pleased for you x
Picklepants hope you managed to relax. Can't answer the food thing my h does it all!
Hello Pandoras box!
Browny - As you said you've got to think about the positives of the redundancy.
Gavi glad the appointment went well, except for the wait! That's what happened to us last time. You spend longer waiting for bloods than with the midwife!
Malteaser that's great that your boss is being so understanding.
Gavi loving the kumquat!

Hi all, just a quick one from me as I'm still at work-open evening 'til 7.30! But scan this morning went well. Baby waved at us, which was awesome! They dated me at 14 weeks not 12+6 as I had worked out, but there is no way it's 14 weeks so I am assuming baby is just on the long side. New due date 26th aug. hope you're all well.
25/02/2014 at 19:01
That's great news raincloud! How exciting!
25/02/2014 at 21:51
Bunny: what makes you think you're 8 not 7? Hope the bloating doesn't last too long,
WG: Bet it's nice to be home, hope you have fun with the psychic medium, sounds like a laugh!
Boo: Love your new ticker! We're all allowed a downer day now & again, hop you've had a good day today
Ducky: Enjoy your early night
Deedee: Sorry to hear you're not feeling great, I remember the itchiness from last time, hope it settles soon. What show are you doing & how pregnant will you be? I'm in Grease but only really small parts until a month ago when someone dropped out & I'm cha cha. Mine is in June so I'll be 5 months but hope I can get away with it!!
Pickle pants: Hope you were able to relax today & are feeling better for it
Pandorabox: Hi & welcome. Hope you got some good pics from the scan
Browny: Are you enjoying daytime tv yet? My job finished last time when I was 12 weeks last time. I then did supply teaching for a bit & ended up going back to where I did supply teaching after I had my daughter but it was weird not having a job for awhile & being a lady of leisure
Gavi: Gotta love form filling, exciting to get the ball rolling though
Malteasers: That's 1 way to have to tell your work!
Raincloud: So cute that your baby was waving
AFM: I just can't seem to stop eating!! I also had my 1st nausea feeling this morning whilst driving to work & managed to find of my travel sickness bands in the glove compartment from last time. Not sure if it was that or the ginger biscuits I'd bought for just in case but it settled down ok. I'm also really tired although that might just be the fact that my toddler seems to be favouring waking up at 2,3 or 5am at the mo. Not fun! Now just to get rid of this sore throat from trying to do a P.E. lesson on the field in the rain yesterday!!!
