How are we all?
I think I didn't sleep for 1 full hour last night. Couldnt get comfy and had cramp about 15 times. Long day at work for me. Started putting baby stuff into storage boxes so we can start to organise nursery- hadnt realised we had so many socks and bibs already ha!

Rio - oh no, rubbish and the sleep. Hope you manage to get some rest today. It's amazing how quickly you collect stuff isn't it?!
AFM - despite a rubbish night sleep here too, I am feeling pretty awake. A nice day here today, so I think we'll be playing out in the garden later on again. :)
Hi to all who follow.

Rio I'm sorry you hardly slept theyre the worst nights :( hope you can get a nap today and a better nights sleep tonight x
Sapphire. I'm jealous of you playing in the garden, while im at work. Hurrumph! #
AFM - 17 weeks today! As I came out of my flat this morning the lady next door came out of hers and she's pregnant too! We had a little chat, she's 21 weeks so we're fairly close. I want to suggest a (decaff) coffee at some point because we'll both be off on leave at the same time etc but I've not spoken to her much before and not sure how it go about it!
My belly is getting big, ive got a serious bump today, still getting dull cramps really low down, which the midwife said is most likely ligaments. Gender scan on Saturday...cant wait! x
OMG its an onion...!

Rio and Sapphire - hope your rubbish nights sleep don't make you feel too rough today
Rod - That's lovely about your neighbour; definitely suggest a coffee as it'll be a nice excuse to get to know her
AFM - Not much to report really, just plodding along. I've been quite emotional and grumpy this week, and getting stressed about work, prams, lack of bumpage, hip pain, etc etc etc... I must attempt to chill out!

Rod - don't be too jealous, M is being a rebel child this morning. While outside she's crawling around determined to play with the bins, in the house she's recently discovered she can climb so she's clambered on the sofa and has been kneeling on that leaning. When I bring her down to safety the grump that follows is like the world is about to end. No harm seeing if your neighbour wants to meet up for coffee. You never know you might hit it off with her.
Hazel - and breathe. Try not to worry about these things, everyone's bump is different, yours will show up when it's ready. Rubbish about the hip pain though I hope it doesn't get too bad.

Afternoon all :)
On my phone so can't write much but am 21 weeks today and had my anomaly scan yesterday. All was thankfully ok so am very relieved! We didn't find out the sex as I love having the surprise but after 3 boys I'm completely expecting this to be a boy too! Struggling a bit controlling my GD despite being on metformin so I think I'll be put on insulin as my next appointment.
Now my scan is done I'm looking forwards to buying some bits and pieces! And definitely want to get Christmas presents bought and wrapped ASAP so I don't have to do it heavily pregnant!
Glad everyone is doing ok too xx

Afternoon to you all!
First off - Hello! I'm done an intro thread but its just waiting to be modified apparently!
I thought it would be lovely to join in and get to know some people so finally got round to it after long time lurking.
I'm 14w exactly today and can't believe i'm in my second tri already. Found out at 5 weeks so seems like its taken ages to get here.
Feeling good health wise now and seem to be plodding along quite nicely, just not wanting to eat much. Has anyone else gone through this? I've lost 9lbs since finding out and struggling to put any back on (on thyroxine for underactive thyroid though so this may be contributing).
Had bloods yesterday for UAT so will speak to doc tomorrow and got MW appt next week so can ask about weight then. Not too concerned, just a bit odd as my friends seem to not stop eating!
Glad to see some of you are having a good day, sorry to hear about the sleeping, or lack of. Hoping this improves for you soon X

Alaina - Congratulations on your scan! Glad everything went ok. Have fun shopping!
Sapphire - I know. I'm being ridiculous. Like my H said last night, I get a little bit of discomfort walking upstairs and diagnose myself with some crazy worsening condition like SPD, when it's probably from overdoing it walking round the shops at the weekend. I'm my own worst enemy! Haha Hope M behaves herself this afternoon :)
