Good morning everyone.
Congrats to Weathergirl on her 12 week scan yesterday - we will see on this thread soon!
Sorry I wasnt on yesterday, was at a team building day with work - it was fine and we got a nice lunch.
Nothing to report - just waiting on my 20 week scan this Monday.
I will be back on later :)

Morning Sas! Yesterday sounds good fun! Your scan will be here in no time :-)
Baby is so active it's lovely..With O I had an anterior placenta but it's posterior this time and I can really tell the difference in the strength/frequency of movements! Off to group with O this morning and then a bit of garden play and packing planned for the afternoon...feel like we're getting somewhere now!
Will pop back later, have a good one all xx

Sas not long until the big scan now. Are you still staying team yellow?
Coco have you got lots of packing left to do? Yay for lots of baby movements.
AFM well yesterday I did nothing! The floor is almost finished but he'd got about an hour left to do today. It's looking good, I can't wait for it to be finished.
Baby wise, not much to report. Happy feet is 26 weeks today, and is a lettuce!

SaSaSi - not long left until your scan. Exciting!
Coco - yay for lots of movements! Hope you are nearly done with the packing :)
Imp - happy lettuce day!
AFM - I managed to spend a lot of yesterday dozing on the sofa. I was obviously more tired than I thought! Not much else to report - little lady's movements are definitely getting stronger; some taking me by surprise sometimes :)
Hi to those who follow!

Morning, April Fool's Day! I think I've seen a couple of spoof stories in the paper already.
SaSaSi, not long at all until your scan! Will you stay team yellow? Hope the next few. Days fly for you and at it's here before you know it.
Coco, ahh so lovely that you can feel lots of movements :) Have a nice morning!
Imp, Happy Lettuce Day!! Happy Feet is getting so big and strong :) So glad that you're pleased with your floor, looking forward to seeing a flash when it's finished.
AFM, we didn't get the house. Someone went way over the asking price which we just couldn't match, so back to the drawing board. I'm so sick of looking at houses!
I'm off out to buy a new water jug this morning after ours flew out of the fridge last night on a suicide mission and smashed all over the floor - you can imagine my joy! Nothing much to report babywise, getting quite a lot of wriggles and kicks all throughout the day now which is lovely.
Missed you Ixia, a day of dosing on the sofa sounds pretty perfect to me!

Fig - sorry about the house :(
01/04/2014 at 09:07
SaSaSi - not long to go! Are you finding out?
Coco - glad to hear the packing is going well. Ours starts properly today as H is home!
Imp - hope he finishes it off quickly this morning. Glad you like it so much! Happy 26 weeks!!
Ixia - a relaxing day must have been what you needed. Lovely to have so many movements :)
Fig - so sorry about the house. Maybe something even better is around the corner.
AFM - had an awful nights sleep. My hip was killing and then I kept getting tiny but extremely painful almost shooting sensations in my leg at various points :(

Morning all, hope everyone is well
Sasasi - team building sounds nice. Not long til your scan, awesome!
Coco - so lovely that you're feeling so many movements, can't wait for that bit.
Imp - good news on the floor, and a lettuce?! Wow :)
Ixia - A nice restful day, sounds lovely.
Fig - I am so sorry, that is mega pants. I know it's a pants thing to say but I do believe these things happen for a reason - your perfect house is out there somewhere.
AFM - In a bit of pain today, just backache and general aches and pains. I am guessing this is just par for the course. H has a third interview today and he was really nervous this morning, bless him.
Hope everyone has a good day!

Ixia I agree that a day dozing on the sofa sound lovely, you must have needed it.
Fig You know I'm sorry about the house, you must be totes fed up by now. I really hope YOUR house is just waiting around the corner for you.
Browny sorry about your hip and leg. I get that sometimes at night, there's no rhyme or reason to mine so I don't have any advice. When do you see the physio?
Gavi More vibes being sent your way for Mr Gavi, he must be doing well so far. The aches and pains do seem to be par for the course I'm afraid. Have you tried a pregnancy pillow or sleeping with a pillow between your knees?

Sasasi - glad the work away day went well. A nice lunch is always a bonus. Monday will be here before you know it! Nearly halfway.
Coco - hope the packing goes well but it's good you can see the light at the end of the tunnel! You must be so excited.
Imp - a day of nothing sounds good to me. Are you having the same type of floor as last time? Are you off all day again today? Jealous. Happy lettuce day to your little happy feet.
Ixia - I love dozing. Sounds like a pretty good Monday to me! Yay to stronger movements too.
Fig - so so sorry about the house. Don't lose hope though! Your house is out there somewhere. Happy water jug hunting too.
Browny - really hope you sort this hip pain out soon. Sounds horrible and not sleeping is the worst. Does paracetamol help at all?
Gavi - hope the interview goes well for your H! Loads of luck for him. Sorry about the aches and pains. Sadly I think they are just normal. Weel, they're becoming normal for me anyway
AFM - another one with aches and pains. I get a really bad stitch pain in my lower bump when I walk anywhere which is really painful at times. I *think* it's round ligament pain but will ask my midwife about it when I see her after Easter. Not good as it means I am avoiding any walking that's not necessary and I'm not sure my waistline (or what was once my waistline) will thank me for it. Other than that I can feel baby move more but H hasn't felt anything since last week as the kicks/punches aren't strong enough most of the time. They're really low down too and seem to be focussing on my bladder which is such a weird feeling!

Gavi - good luck for your H. Will keep my fingers crossed.
Imp - 17th April so not too long to wait. Sometimes the pillows between my legs work, other times they don't so I don't know what to do for the best.
Jonesy - sorry to hear you are in pain too.
I just rang the estate agents and we've been accepted for the house! So happy! Operation move is in full swing. Been sorting the spare room this morning and now we've sat down to look through the removal company quotes I got through last week.

Coco - I am yet to feel anything but at same time I dont really know what to look out for! Enjoy packing!
Imp - glad you enjoyed a day of rest and great news you are happy with your floor!
lxia - nothing wrong with a day of rest and dozing, its how I spend my Saturdays & Sundays
Fig - sorry about the house & water jug :( House searching really is tedious!
Browny - have you spoken to anyone about the pain? Do you suffer from sciatica? Great news about your house!
Gavi - good luck for your OH! I still get some pains, when I sit up etc. Seems normal & they dont last long.
Jonsey - pains are not pleasant but appear common and part of the course for many of us. Hope you get some relief before Easter.
AFM - we are firmly team yellow - at the minute haha! Got the room sizes for our possible house, they are grand, bedrooms smaller than we have but we knew that would happen. Both agreed worth it for a utility room, ensuite & garage! Bad news is builder thinks it could be a year before the house is built, I would like to have been in before christmas but everything for a reason. Will get plans showing dimensions and price later this week. FX.
