Good luck to popcorn for her scan today
AFM - busy day today as it's my little man's 2nd birthday! currently waking for him to wake up to ipen all 2 of his presents (his main present of a playhouse is being erected this weekend, so he only has a present from someone else and I wrapped up some golf clubs I'd bought him last night when I realsied he had nothing to open ), then after jelly and icecream for breakfast we're heading off to soft play for his little party.

Morning BG, hope your little boy enjoys his day!
Good luck Popcorn xx
Another fun day at work for me! Got a chiropractor appointment later on too. Still wanting to be added to the 2013 facebook group pretty please!
Hope everyone is well.

Morning BG, happy birthday to A hope he has a great party! Enjoy the day
Good luck to popcorn today. Thinking of you.x
AFM I've got my 16 week MW appointment this morning. Having to take Isla with me so thinking I might strap her in the pram otherwise goodness knows what havoc she'll cause in the room whilst we are there! Then catching up with a friend this afternoon. Feelin pretty tired today despite sleeping well. Think maybe baby is having a growth spurt in there. Hi to everyone else xxx

Hi BE just missed you. Hope you have a good day despite being at work

BG - I wouldn't worry about opening presents. Our boy had random stuff to open in the morning and the novelty soon wore off. Jelly and ice cream for breakfast sounds great.
BE - do people use the FB group much? I'm not on there
MrsB - 16 week appointment will probably be a quickie (was for me) so I wouldn't worry too much.
Me - I woke up at 5.59 with my boys face (and the dogs face) inches from my own. Very creepy and I was so startled it made him cry! He's been a bit poorly the last couple of days, but of a temp and maybe a bit of something chesty or throaty? He certainly needs more cuddles and is being a general fusspot! Quiet day for us today I think. House is a mess so must make progress with tht. It's Neverending!
Baby a-ok. Luckily no major kicks during the night. If I go for a wee really quickly and then get back into bed I think baby doesn't wake up, otherwise I get endless kicks and can't get back to sleep

Big good look to popcorn today! xxxx
B Gump - Morning, hope your boy has a lovely birthday
BE - I am also still waiting to be added to the group, does anyone know who the admin is? Hope your appointment goes wellx
Mrs B - Do you think it is a growth spurt? We are about the same time and I too am shattered today for no reason!
IDC - I think that would really freak me out too. Hope he is feeling better soon xxx
AFM - Just tired and really cannot be bothered with work today. Nothing is interesting me today and I am just generally in a poo mood.
21/05/2013 at 08:28
BG happy birthday to A, hope he has a lovely day
BE hope the chiropractor appointment goes well
MrsB good luck with your 16 week appointment
IDC hope your boy feels better soon
LP hope your day gets a bit better and you're not too tired
AFM not much to report really. Still feeling the occasional kick but not much. Off for a meal tonight for my friends 30th,
Hope we all have a good day x
21/05/2013 at 08:33
LP I get weekly e mails from baby centre and this weeks said that in the next three weeks baby will double its weight. So I'm guessing that's what the tiredness is as I'm shattered but not done anything I don't usually do. Hope you feel better as the day goes on. x
21/05/2013 at 08:46
BG - yum! Jelly and icecream for breakfast. Hope he enjoys his day
BE - Enjoy your day
MrsB - Hope the midwife appointment goes okay, ive got mine tomorrow

Good luck to popcorn today!
BG- Hope your little boy had a lovely birthday! I wish I had jelly and ice cream for breakfast!
BE- Hope work goes quick for you today and the chiropractor helps. I'm not on FB so afraid I can't help you there!
MrsB- I'm feeling tired despite having lots of sleep too. Hadn't even thought it might be down to a growth spurt! Duh.. Good luck at your MW appointment. Let us know how it goes.
IDC- Hope you little boy is feeling better soon. Thanks for the heads up on the quick toilet dash. Will know to make it as quickly as possible when I start feeling baby moving!
LP- Hope your mood picks up and you have an easy day! Feeling sleepy here too and had to drag myself out of bed this morning. I was so comfy cuddled up to H!
JT- Have a lovely time tonight and enjoy your day :)
AFM- After having about a weeks break from nightly toilet trips it has started again the past few nights. Up at 3-4 o'clock desperate for the toilet and with a really dry mouth. Because I'm usually in bed earlier that H these days (I always fall asleep downstairs and crawl to bed!) he always remembers to bring a drink up to bed for me now. Not got much planned for the next few days as we are poor so just waiting for payday. Lucking forward to an early finish on Friday and a long bank holiday weekend!
21/05/2013 at 08:56
MS- Let us know how you get on tomorrow. I had mine last Friday and got to hear baby's heartbeat. It's so lovely! 2 weeks tomorrow until scan, eek!!
21/05/2013 at 09:11
Massive good luck popcorn :)
BG - awww happy birthday to A OMG jelly n ice cream for breakfast Im soooo jealous!
Morning BE hope work and chiropractor go ok
MrsB - hope your appointment goes well, good luck keeping Isla strapped in :)
IDC - hope your LO is ok, Im sat surrounded by mess atm but have to do an essay first, hubby will be up soon mwahahahaha! I have yet to master having a wee and gettibg to bed quickly enough to not wake the baby lol.
LP - that was me the day before yesterday, hormones officially suck!
JT- enjoy your meal
MS - hope you get to hear the heartbeat tomorrow :)
Sam- you got a weeks break?? how lucky were you??? Waiting for payday here too.
AFM - Ive got a blood test today and returning to work tomorrow. hubbys nan is still in hospital. I am starting to think there is a strong possibility she will be coming to us rather than returning home. Im really looking forward to starting maternity leave. We had our tour of the labour unit last night which was brilliant. hubby came away feeling really positive. I came away considering a water birth which I hadnt really considered seriously before. Sounds weird but it has stopped me being so anxious and made me more excited hehe. Hi to all who follow xxx
21/05/2013 at 09:21
Luna- I thought that the weeing in the night had stopped until I was going to get bigger, how wrong I was! How is your hubby's nan? When are you looking to start maternity leave? I haven't even really thought about it but think I want to work as long as possible so maybe 37 weeks? I used to work as a midwifery assistant in a low risk unit so have seen lots of water births. It's definitely something I want to give a go and it's good to know that even if the pain gets too much there is the option to be moved on the the delivery suite and have more pain relief.
21/05/2013 at 09:39
BG-happy birthday A! Hope he has a lovely party
Bumpenvy-hope work isn't too bad, good luck for the chiropractor
Mrsb-hope the midwife is ok, im sure I had a large growth spurt at 16 weeks, it so tiring.
IDC- oh bless him hopefully he starts to feel better soon. I know what you mean about the kicks, the baby was giving me a massive kicking at 6 am today
LP-hope work isok and your mood improves
JT-have a lovely meal tonight
Ms-good luck for tomorrow, I love hearing the heartbeat
Samjh87-the toilet trips come back im afraid lol.
Luna-sorry to hear about H nan, hope she recovers soon. Im aiming for a waterbirth too, glad you liked the unit tour!
AFM 25+6 off to cornwall tomorrow for a few days for me H's birthday.
21/05/2013 at 09:45
Hi sam n noodle! I was aiming to leave at 38 weeks but having anual leave from 36 weeks. But GP has told me I should think of starting it at 35 weeks because of how physical the job is :( Hubbys nan was doing better but has got a little worse. I dont think she has fully taken in how much damage has been done to her heart and just how many repercussions there will be from that. Thats what I liked about the water birth idea too, the fact it can be used as pain relief and they said I can get out at any point and be assisted to the bed. Im getting very excited hehehehe! x

Afm gp called me back yesterday and signed me off for two weeks for sciatic pain. That would leave me with 4 weeks/11 13hr shifts to get through. I'm already finishing at 32 weeks due to 6 weeks annual leave to take so really don't want to be signed off sick till then. Trying to rest and hoping to go for a swim later, may help baby move off my sciatic nerve.

Hi all back from MW appointment, all good with baby B. heard the heart beat which was reassuring. Second time I've heard it now as we listened to it at 12 week scan too. Always an amazing sound. Isla was good. I kept her entertained with a flapjack and her teddy x
21/05/2013 at 12:03
MrsB- Glad your MW appt went well and you got to hear babys heartbeat. I can't imagine hearing that sound ever tiring! It's so lovely.
Work has been manic today. We are so short staffed with holidays/ sickness that I have been rushed off my feet. I'm ready for home and bed already and still 5 hours to go.
21/05/2013 at 12:20
havent quite got time for Personals but hope you are all ok :)
BG - happy birthday to A
All with A;ppointments - good luck & i hope they go well.
AFM - i'm all good. work was no where near as bad as it would of been yesterday so i'm in a good mood. Twinklet wriggling lots. Managed to video her moving from the outside (obviously) and sent it to my mum which she was excited about. looking forward to a long weekend.
21/05/2013 at 17:42
Thank you for your good luck msgs, scan went really well :) baby was in a funny position at first so the sonographer man made me jump up and down for a bit to get baby to move! It worked though and baby was laying with legs in the air and arms behind head almost, bless.
Will try and upload a picture later, currently at lakeside, having a celebratory nose round kiddicare!
BG happy birthday to A, hope he had a lovely day.
MrsB glad your app went well
Hi to everyone else, sorry for lack of personals but am on my phone.
Much love popcorn and little wriggly pops!
