Hope everyone is keeping ok?
I am still feeling less sick - long may this continue!
Found out a 'frenemy' is also pregnant & due 2 weeks before me. Its annoyed for a long list of complex reasons which are mostly out of my control - so I am blaming my hormones! OH has been very good about my meltdown & believe me I know how ridiculously blessed I am to be having this baby when we thought we had a year of fertility treatment ahead instead of pregnancy. If she was due after me I dont think I would be quite so upset but I know she likes the name we have picked for a girl (announced it on facebook whereas we have decided to say nothing to no one about names). Its stupid - she doesnt know what she is having, I dont know what I am having - hell she doesnt even know i am pregnant!
Face slaps are very welcome lol

Looks like we posted about the same time - I've managed to just delete my thread though, but copied what I'd written before I did
Sorry didn't get back on the thread yesterday, was feeling so rubbish all day. Little better this morning, although still not right so having another day at home, although am going to attempt to work - if it gets too much I'll stop. Had some porridge this morning and I actually enjoyed it - first thing I've enjoyed eating for a few days!
CJ - congrats on a good scan and lovely scan pic yesterday x
SaSaSi - yey for feeling less sick! Hormones have a lot to answer for sometimes, I can understand the name thing - I had a friend who was due 3 months before me when I had C and wrote our favourite boys name on a post on FB once, fortunately she had a girl and I don't think it was top of her list anyway. Not a lot you can do about it, and you may end up giving birth before her anyway. x

SaSaSi - glad you are still feeling better. Sorry about the 'friend' but like DD says, you might end up giving birth before her anyway! Try not to let it get to you.
DD - glad you are feeling better.
AFM: I feel so tired today! I just feel exhausted. And my boss just rang me - I might have to go out to deal with a client and I really cba! :(

Thanks ladies - I really dont mean to sound ungrateful, lots of friends have fell pregnant during this journey weve been on & hand on heart none have affected me like this.
Thanks for not making me feel like a cow!
Deedee - hopefully another day gets you right back on track. I miss porridge, yum! Couldnt hack it at the minute though :( have you ever tried making it with apple juice instead of milk & adding bluberries, flaxseed & goji berries? Its divine! I cant wait to feel like i can eat normal again.
Browny - tiredness really does make every day a struggle. If you do have to go out, I hope the client isnt as bad as you are anticipating!

Browny - thanks. Hope you manage to find some energy, or even better don't have to go out x
SaSaSi - tomorrow's my day off anyway, and then work from home Friday so not going back in the office this week at least and can work laid up on the sofa under the blanket! I love porridge just with milk, adding other stuff just ruins it for me - apart from golden syrup, yum!

Hallelujah! You girls must be my lucky charms I didn't have to go out in the end!
I weighed myself this morning and I've only put 1lb on since before Christmas (when I ate A LOT) and when considering my holiday and how much I've snacked and eaten crap since I got back I think thats amazing! I still feel bigger though - maybe its the bloating??
Where is everyone today? x

Sasasi - I think hormaones make you lose it over ridiculous things anyway so I wouldn't worry too much. In the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter at all but I make mountains out of molehills constantly so I'm with you there. Glad H is being nice though. Mine just tells me to get a grip most of the time!
Deedee - Glad you're feeling slightly better today but it sounds like a good idea to just do what you can.
Browny - yay for not being called out! And massive congrats for only a 1lb gain. Im a little ahead of you weeks wise but a shed load more weight gain wise *sobs*. Pretty sure I'm putting it on abnormally fast so I'm trying to eat only healthy stuff. Problem is I only want unhealthy stodge. woe.
BB - I hope you have fabulous time! I am so jealous.
AFM - FINALLY had my proper booking in yesterday (12+3) which went fine. They've booked me in to see a consultant further down the line about my irregualr heartbeat (that I was told wouldn't affect pregnancy in any way by my gp) to see if he was in fact correct as the mw seemed concerned about it. They also then had a massive panic about the fact I hadn't got a scan booked and whether there would be time to get one in in time to do the nuchal test. I had rung them a couple of times about it before and they said it would be fine so I was a bit annoyed. They also tried to get me in the same afternoon which would have been pants as H wasn't at the appointment. However, it's now tomorrow at 10 so I'm getting very excited and very nervous. Glad I dont have too long to get worked up about it! Pregnancy wise nothing much to report, feeling a lot less knackered now which is great.

Hi Jonesy - glad to hear your appointment went ok and you have your scan tomorrow! Its so exciting, let us know how you get on!
Well the big boss finally got back to me about voluntary redundancy which is really poor and no where near as good as statutory if you can believe it! So looks like I'm going to have to go through all of the meetings etc and play this out. Boo I was hoping for extremely early maternity leave lol. x
