Morning all, hope you don't mind me starting the thread today.
How are you all? Hope you enjoyed the bank holiday. We went out for dinner with friends last night and I came back and slept like a log! Got a crazy week coming up at work so apologies if I don't get on here much this week x

I hope this week isn't too bad and you manage to rest. Totally understand the sleeping part, I'm totally exhausted!
Afm - nothing to report, just the usual tiredness. H came back last night after being away all weekend and said that squidge has grown quite a bit. I'm looking pregnant now, not just fat - how kind!

MrsL - I hope your busy week at work isn't too crazy. At least it's a short week I suppose!
Boo - Yay to looking pregnant! Hehe. Baby has obviously grown in the last few days.
AFM, I'm not feeling too bad. Tired after the weekend but we managed to get a few jobs around the house done as well as having a couple of BBQs so all in all, a nice weekend. It's an extra short week for us as we go away on holiday on Friday and I cannot wait! A quiet day for us getting a few bits of housework done before we go away.

MrsL - hope this week isn't quite as bad as you think it'll be!
Boo - Must be lovely having H home. They really do say the funniest things don't they? My H said the other day "you're going to be huge" meaning bump is going to be, but I was still like "what??!!" Haha!
WG - Ooh is this your Cornwall break? Sounds like a lovely weekend to me.
AFM - Another busy weekend here. Felt poo on Saturday so I rang on sick at work (I do the late shift) and felt so much better for doing so. We had friends up from Brighton for dinner on Sunday which was lovely...The girl is due in 4 weeks so lots of baby talk :-) Then yesterday we sorted O's bedroom furniture and bought his feature wall wallpaper...gone for the pirate range from Next. We have a Next outlet here and managed to get it for £2.99 a roll instead of usual £15 a roll :-) Today will just be a chilled one a weather looks a tad changeable. Off down docs now though to find out about switching my mw over as we've just moved area.

Hello ladies. 2nd tri slacker here!
MrsL - Hope work isn't as crazy as you are predicting x
Boo - My husband said something similar a while ago - cheeky gits eh!!
WG - Enjoy your holiday on Friday - I'm jealous of your BBQ's over the weekend as I was at work the entire time!!
Coco - £2.99 a roll instead of £15 is an amazing reduction! Hope the midwife switchover is painless for you x
AFM - I'm jealous of all those of you for whom a bank holiday means time off work as it's the opposite for me and means busier workload (joy of working at a holiday park)! Yesterday my husband and I both felt Paperclip for the first time, I thought I was imagining it so he put his hand on my tummy and he felt two 'kicks' (more like gentle pokes from the inside!!) as well. It's very gentle still and you have to really concentrate but at least I know they are finally making their presence known :)

Massive slacker at the moment, I just can't motivate myself!
Mrs L - hope work was OK in the end
Boo - men are so charming, aren't they?!
WG - Where you off to on hols? I go four weeks on Thursday and I can't wait!
Coco - great work on the wallpaper, what a bargain. What hospital will you be having the little one in now?
PS - so exciting that you both finally felt Paperclip! sorry you had to work over the weekend.
AFM - not much to report, got my scan tomorrow, so I am starting to get the scan fear again. Gah!

Coco - wow that was a good bargain with the wallpaper! Can't wait to see photos when the room is done. We're going to the New Forest this time (Cornwall in July) so a trip to Peppa Pig world is on the agenda!
PS - it's so lovely that you and H got to feel Paperclip move. I can't wait to start feeling things! I thought I did the other day but not sure.
Gavi - where are you off to on your hols? We're going to the New Forest. Will you be finding out the gender tomorrow? Hope all goes well. My scan is 2 weeks tomorrow eek!

Nope, not finding out the flavour, keeping it a surprise :)
I am going to Holland for a few days with H's family on a boat, and then H and I are flying to Ibiza for three nights in a nice hotel. Which means I'll be in a bikini. God help Ibiza!

PS - great for you and H to feel movements, makes it all feel so much more real doesn't it? This one didn't start giving me stronger movements until I was almost 24wks and now never stops...sure now you've had movements it'll only increase in frequency and strength :-)
Gavi - good luck for tomorrow, sure all will be fine...enjoy seeing baby again.we're still under Southend thankfully hospital wise, and in fact about 15 minutes closer to the hospital too :-)
WG - V jealous, I love the New Forest. Whereabouts are you staying? O will be v jealous of F too..he's a big Peppa fan! We've said we'll probably go next year :-)
