Baby was doing so many ninja moves this morning, particularly in my side that I had to get up! Still had a bit of a lie in. H has a day off today so I'm trying to convince him that we need to go to a sainsburys to do a food shop, although actually I want to go because of the clothes sale! The nearest one is a 20 minute drive away so we shall see, but I did promise him lunch out. My little lamb order of breast pads and my first lot of reusable nappies should be coming today too, although the text said between 12-1pm, right in the middle of the day.

Morning bunny. I always forget about Sainsburys for clothes, I used to see some nice things in there when we did our weekly shop there. Hope you pick up some bargains in the sale! Exciting about the delivery, they always give awkward times don't they?
AFM - well I'm now on my 4th (or is it 5th?!) lot of antibiotics this pregnancy. I decided to phone my MW yesterday afternoon just on the off chance that the test results from the hospital were back. She gave the hospital a call and was told they wouldn't be back until this afternoon and, given the fact that she's not back at the surgery until Friday, she suggested that she get one of the doctors to prescribe some antibiotics as I'm showing the symptoms of another UTI. She didn't want me suffering until Friday or early next week! So I've just been up there to collect them. I've also been reading up about UTIs and a possible link between them and GBS, which I had last pregnancy. I have to say, I'm wondering if they've picked that up again this pregnancy but at least the tests they did on Sunday will pick that up.
I intend to not do much at all today. I'm going to hang some washing out shortly and then go through H's expenses for him and then sit and watch telly the rest of the day. Oh I almost forgot, my mum will be over later to highlight my hair!

That's good that you've been given some antibiotics, I hope they work! Would gbs explain some of your other bouts of illness? Enjoy your lazy day and getting your hair done.

WG: Hope the antibiotics help. Enjoy your rest day
Bunny: Hope you manage to get to sainsburys for the sale! Our local sainsburys doesn't stock clothes but we're going to see my family this weekend & my mum works for sainsburys so I might see what we can get with her discount!!!
AFM: I actually spent awhile thinking about this baby yesterday! I'm fairly convinced now on the name, just need to chat with my friend (which I'm a bit nervous about). I can also start to visualise my home birth & have decided that I want to have my pool upstairs in the nursery as it'll be so more relaxing as I know I won't be able to keep our living room tidy & this way I can put the pool up at 37 weeks (2nd Oct!!) & it'll be ready as I've heard that 2nd babies can come quickly! I also had my lazy daisy class last night which was lovely to learn more about how to use each contraction to it's full potential & great breathing techniques. So I'm now looking forward to it (in a weird way) just hope he doesn't come too early!! We're off to visit family tomorrow for the long weekend which'll be lovely & I'm also thinking it might be the last time we travel up there as a family of 3 which is exciting!!! Now to find some energy as I want to take Isobelle swimming today & my bump feels very heavy today for some reason. At least from tomorrow my family can entertain her!!!

Afm h is working from home today tomorrow and fri as we have no child care and I'm on a study day but working tomorrow and fri

Bunny - I remember the ninja baby moves well! I hope you make it sainsburys for some baby bargains, I'm hoping to go Friday when my H is off :D
WG - So sorry for you keep having to have antibiotics :( I hope you have the relaxing day you hope for and enjoy having your hair done later x
Blackkat - I hope the name chat goes well and you feel happy with your name choice. Enjoy your weekend :)
TRF - Sounds like you've got a busy week planned for next week. Make sure you don't over-do it though - 3rd tri really gives your body an internal battering!
AFM - I'm 37+3 today (or 4+6 out of the womb ;) ) and I've just reserved Ame's first christmas present - she won't even be old enough to use it by christmas but one of the other 2014 mummies linked a bargain deal at Argos to me and I couldn't resist - oops!

Bk that's good that you are fairly certain about the name and are thinking of how to sort your home birth. I like the sound of lazy daisy classes but the nearest to me are a half hour drive.
Rf sounds like you are on a mission! Love that baby is being very active even if you are feeling it!
PS sometimes it has to be done! You can't say no to a bargain can you?
Well we got to sainsburys and spent a fortune! Not all on clothes but we did get quite a bit in 3-6 months as we have hardly any and an outfit in 0-3 as we only have 1 outfit in that size and convinced ourselves that we might need to put them in an outfit if going out and its cold as we got the matching hoodie too. Also got 2 toys that were half price, they are fisher price a soft lion activity cube and elephant chime ball. We are going to put these aside and some of the 3-6 month clothing as possible Christmas pressies for baby. Saves us spending out when I'm on maternity pay, although it feels a bit odd buying stuff before baby is here!
