Morning mrs L I didn't get on either, in the middle of 4 long days 9.30-22.30 but today is the last one, took some al and left at 8pm last night as was knackered. I have a run of 3 together next week then after that il be just doing 2 a week which shall be lovely and kind of like part time working as I'm taking the remainder of my annual leave throughout August step and oct so I have 32 days left to work which sounds soooo lovely! The long days have really killed me!
Furniture coming tomorrow for boys room which is great as we can crack on with that. Baby v active and now responding to prods from the outside lol. Still no further forward on a middle name

MrsL - Sometimes I don't notice movements if I've been busy. If you're worried have a cold drink and lay down, I find that by doing that, movements start up again. Also, squidge does have quiet days from time to time.
RF - I can imagine the long days have been tough!! 32 days doesn't sound long does it!? Do you have suggestions for a middle name and can't agree? or is there not any that you like?
AFM - GTT this morning :( Roll on 10.30am when I can eat!! So hungry. Didn't sleep very well last night either, it was so so hot! Was tempted to have a cool shower at 3am this morning! Not much planned for the rest of the day, hopefully going swimming later which will be good.
Hi to all that follow xxx

Mrs l I hope baby decides to have a wiggle. An ice pop gets mine going, although they've also been a little quieter during the day recently. I wonder if the heat has an effect as its making me feel really tired.
Rf 2 days a week sounds great! Not many working days left now. That's lovely that baby responds to prods.
Boo hope that you don't have to wait long for the gtt and have a nice snack lined up for after!
Baby has been quiet during the day recently but they are certainly making up for it at night! I hope this doesn't mean they are going to be a nocturnal baby! Did gardening yesterday in preparation for the party but may have overdone it as my hips were achy last night. Need to do a little bit this morning then will find jobs I can do sitting down.

Haven't been on since Thursday as was working all weekend, hope you're all well.
MrsL, hope you're getting a few kicks today.
TRF, I'm sure a name will come in time, how lovely that baby is responding to you.
Boo, swimming sounds heavenly! Hope you get to eat soon.
Bunny, another active baby! You and boo are both 3rd tri now, are you not? It's soooo exciting!
AFM - have woken up today loaded with the cold, feeling very woe is me! It was threatening yesterday, but today it's full blown...only saving grace is that I'm not working til Saturday so hopefully it's gone by then. His going to come home on his lunch break with bread, bacon and lucozade, so it's a day in bed for me.
Baby wise I'm 19 weeks tomorrow so next week is our FA scan. I've added some cheeky wipes to my growing cloth stash, and feeling very excited about it all. Looking to pick up a sling and a changing bag next so keeping an eye out for deals. Only occasional flutters from baby but I have an anterior placenta so was expecting it to be later anyway...would be nice to feel regular moves though.

Saffron yes I suppose we are! I'm going to go over next week after we've had the garden party and k's birthday as I wont be on really for the rest of this week. That's good that you are feeling flutters. We've got cheeky wipes too and used them quite a lot with k. They are also handy as flannels in the bath with baby and using as burp cloths if there were no muslins to hand.
After saying this morning that baby's been quiet during the day they are deciding to have a disco this morning. They must be listening yrave music the movements they are making! I should get back on later today but if I don't I will see you in 3rd tri!

MrsL - hope he gets wriggling around for you today. A fizzy drink and ice lolly would get M budging when she was having a quiet moment.
RF - exciting that baby is responding to being played with now.
Boo - hope the gtt goes well. Enjoy your food afterwards!
Bunny - sounds a lovely idea having the party for K. Take it easy with the gardening.
S - hope a day resting up in bed gets the cold leaving you sooner. You'll feel the movements properly soon.
AFM - didn't get back on yesterday but mw all went well. Apparently my iron stores were high, but they'll just review that when next bloods are done. Something I wasn't expecting after needing iron tablets with M. Was great having H with us so he could hear the HB there rather than me recording and playing it back to him. We then celebrated with ice-cream down by the river. A nice chilled out day today I think.

The GTT wasn't as bad as I was expecting, so that's a relief! I treated myself to a costa afterwards too to make up for not eating for over 12 hours! I've also got round to booking my NCT classes today! I know I know... how late am i leaving it!?! I was in denial for so long, now I'm beginning to realise, I can't keep researching or putting things off. I need to make decisions and buy stuff! Scary!
bunny - I hope you've had a more restful afternoon. It's so hot today!
Saffron - yes, i guess we are 3rd tri now! Some people say 28 weeks, so I plan to stay until then, albeit a couple of days away. I don't feel ready for 3rd tri just yet!! ha.
I hope you are feeling better soon and have enjoyed your day in bed!
Sapphire - Sounds like you had a lovely day! Enjoy your chilled out day today.

RF - take it easy my lovely dont overdo it, if you need to rest work will have to wait! x
Boo - hope you've cooled down today. Im glad Im at work at the moment as its air conditioned how sad is that! baby has had a few small wriggles today so think hes ok in there, just different from the bigger kicks Im used to.
Bunny - hope youve managed to sit down more today, will try the ice lolly later ;)
Saff - sounds like you are getting stuff sorted, what day is your scan? will you find out the sex?
Sapphire - enjoy your chilled day

Thanks ladies, I've slept for a few hours and feel a bit better. I ended up actually being physically sick so was feeling very sorry for myself, but I hope the worst has past now.
Good to know that you've got on so well with the cheeky wipes. I am sure that Ks party will be lovely, x
Hope you've had a relaxing day Sapphire, that's good news about your iron levels.
Aww boo, I'm not trying to chase you and bunny off, it's a scary step so just you stick in 2nd tri for as long as you like...I now have visions of you posting in here on your DD!
No MrsL, we won't be finding out the sex. Just desperate to know that all is ok as I haven't felt much from baby, I know it's normal, but I think we all panic as scan day gets closer.
