Morning everyone, hope you are well.
Boy was it hot and stuffy last night! I hope that the evenings cool down although it doesn't look like it. H was playing with baby in bed last night and when he put a bit of pressure on a certain bit of my tummy or stroked a bit baby was kicking. Lovely except I was trying to sleep! Got midwife today as I've got my 28 weeks appointment a week early.

Bunny- that sounds so nice for your H. We invested in an air conditioning unit for bedroom and it was best thing we did. I can sleep under duvet and in my pjs in any weather! My mw appt was fine yest and heart rate good. She rushed me out in under 5 mins, not sure if all are like that after booking in appt. just patiently waiting for movement now.

Morning bunny, yes last night was sticky. I woke up early this morning and opened all the windows in the flat as it was too hot to get back to sleep. Good luck at the midwife.
AFM midwife went well yesterday, baby was kicking the Doppler when she was trying to listen to his heartbeat, cheeky boy! Managed to film him kicking last night and sent it to family as they are desperate to feel, he certainly out on a performance for them on camera. Got my matb1 form too so will hand that in at work today.
Have a good Tuesday all x

Sorry rio missed you there, you will feel movement soon! X

Bunny - that's really lovely that your H was playing with bump last night. Hope the MW appointment goes well.
Rio - your air conditioning unit sounds fab! Glad your MW appointment went well, albeit rather brief!
MrsL - pleased your appointment went well yesterday too, I bet family loved seeing video of baby kicking.
AFM I slept rather well considering how muggy it's been. Didn't wake up until 6:30am which is a real lie in for me these days! Today F has his playgroup end of term party, fingers crossed the cakes we made are a success, then straight after that I want to walk up to the shoe shop and get his feet measured. Walking around in this mugginess is really hard going but I'll have to take a slow walk! Then, after lunch F has his friend coming round to play. Tonight I'm starting aquanatal yoga so looking forward to that. I did it when pregnant with F and loved it.
Have a good day everyone x

Bunny - that's lovely that baby and H are playing together already. :)
Rio - glad your mw appointment went well. The appointments will prob get a little bit longer when they start measuring your bump. You'll feel baby soon, I didn't feel M for quite a while because I had anterior placenta.
MrsL - lovely idea doing the film for your family to see baby squiggling about.
WG - have a great time at the party. How can cakes not be a success?! Enjoy the aquanatal yoga too.
AFM - it cooled down quite a bit last night and when I woke was very excited to realise I'd slept through. Got another bargain for the nursery today - an ikea poang chair for £17. H going to collect it after school today. We considered one last time but ended up just keeping sofa bed in there... but that needs coming out to make space.

B - aww, how lovely for your H - not for you of course!
Rio - Glad your MW appointment went well. I love AC so to have it in your bedroom must be lovely!
MrsL - Glad it all went well at your MW appointment yesterday.
WG - Hope the party goes well - I'm sure the cakes will go down a treat!
S - That's a bargain, I've got one and it was great with L (and when I was in labour with her - the equivalent of a bouncy ball).
AFM - All seems in with baby, lots of little nudges and movements. I managed to stub my toe badly yesterday so I'm hobbling about today - thankfully, it's not broken. A little over a week to the scan, time is flying by. I've been very tired after going to the London Comic Con at the weekend and it's taken me a while to recover from it!
Hope everyone else is ok.

bunny - I hope your appt goes well today. That's so lovely for your H!
Rio - Glad that your appt went well yestday. You'll feel movements in the next few weeks :)
MrsL - Pleased to hear that your appt went well too yesterday. I bet your family loved seeing the video of baby move. Have you decided when you will finish work?
WG - I'm sure the cornflake cakes will be a success! Everyone loves them! Enjoy aquanatel too!
Sapphire - Great bargain! I've heard lots of positive things about them.
DS- I can relate to time speeding up! Since 20 weeks it's flown by! My sister went to comic con at the weekend too, she said it was so so busy! I hope your toe heals soon - stubbed toe is so painful!
AFM - Not much to report baby wise! Thank you WG (I think it was you) for recommending the mothercare app! It's great! I don't feel so stressed out about it all now :) Today my manager announced she's leaving. I'm so worried about how that leave things! I know I can do the job in hand but the extra pressure is not something I want or should be dealing with at 6 months pregnant! I hope regional are able to offer some support fairly soonish!
Hi to all that follow xx

Bunny - how lovely for your H. Mines was always a bit freaked out when he got kicks, especially when he had his back to me in bed one night and got kicked in the back!
Rio - I'm waiting for movement too. I'm sure we won't have too long. My tummy feels like it has something in it (if that makes sense!) but no movement as yet.
MrsL - great that you managed to capture some movements, your family will love it.
WG - hope your walk doesn't take too much out of you. I'm sure the cakes went down well! Enjoy yoga.
Sap - we have a poang too - that is a bargain! must give it a go for labour this time!
DS - lovely that your getting lots of nudges. I have a habit of stubbing my toes quite often, ouch!
Boo - hope you get things sorted soon at work. Extra worry isn't what you need!
AFM - R's 4th birthday today, so we were up to open presents at 620am! Then had 4 friends over from 11, so that was 6 kids including my 2. I need to go and lie down somewhere quiet!! We're currently watching frozen for the 2nd time today while O has a nap.
Still nothing to report baby wise, another week until I see the MW .

DS - didn't even think about when in labour. Was just going to dig out my trusty gym ball again. Ouch to stubbing your toe - that's the worst thing.
Boo - hope you get the extra support for your job, you don't need any extra stress.
DD - happy birthday to R. A lie down definitely needed after your busy morning!

Rio that's good that baby is well, shame you felt rushed. Air con sounds amazing!
Mrs l glad that midwife went well. It's always amazing to watch your tummy move isn't it?
WG sounds like a busy day! Hope everyone enjoyed the cakes.
Sapphire you are very good at getting bargains! That's great you slept through.
Ds that's lovely that baby is wriggly. My h would have loved to have gone to comic con, bet it was a lot of walking.
Boo I hope that your bosses get the support in that you need and the change isn't too unsettling. I've also downloaded the music from the mothercare app so I have some classical pieces on my tablet to help hopefully calm baby when the time comes regardless of whether I have access to internet or not.
Dd hope you managed to get that lay down sounds like a very busy morning!
Midwife went well. Baby is fine and bump is measuring 1cm bigger than weeks at the mo. Makes a change as last time I was 2cm smaller! I think I'm going to end up giving birth to a baby near double k's size aren't I?!

WG enjoy Aqua Natal x
Sapphire you're a bargain queen!
Ds not long til scan now! Are you going to find out the sex?
Boo I'm finishing 2 and aHalf weeks before my due date, hope he doesn't come early!
Debbydoo hope you've managed to have a quiet day
Bunny I love watching my tummy move! Glad midwife went well x
AFM my day was tiring I worked 11 hours, it's so busy at the moment! I'm exhausted!
