Hope it's ok for me to start this, I'm used to coming in at the end of the day not the beginning!!!
I'm 5+5 today Cannot believe how much I'm running to the loo or how sore my boobs are!! It's all good though, at least I know I didnt imagine last weekend! Off out for the day today, not sure where yet though, I said something easy would be nice, I'm still very tired in the nicest possible way
Got some family coming round tomorrow to help me pack up my flat, moving back in with my parents in a couple of weeks which will be interesting to say the least!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Running to the loo- check, painful boobs- check!
I'm also so tired! Up at stupid O'clock then shattered an hour later!
Sounds like a busy weekend packing for you!
I'm spending the day sorting out the house, we've got some furniture to build. This evening we're going to an open air cinema so taking blankets and we've ordered a BBQ picnic hamper from the pub where the film is so that should be fun.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Jem- good luck with the move, it'll all be ok :-)
Custard- ooh open air cinema sounds fab, ive always wanted to go to one of those! Make sure E does most of the building!
Im off for lunch with some of the lovely ladies local to me from MD and the fb baby group, for a chin wag and some grub. At 8+4 im feeling ok, a bit bloated and nauseous at times but fairly ok other than that.
Then iver the weekend we'll be packing and house shopping as we've been told that we will be in by the 17th at the latest. Thats two weeks!! :-)
Hi to all that follow! Have a great bank hol weekend. Enjoy the sunshine ( if you get it).
04/05/2013 at 08:54
Custard, I've always wanted to go to an open air cinema, have a great time!!! Take it easy with the furniture building... I'm exactly the same, waking up early then exhausted not long after
Gemini have a lovely lunch sounds like you've got a weekend a bit like mine wit packing, just don't do too much!
04/05/2013 at 09:01
Jem- good luck with all the packing and moving.
Custard- the open air cinema sounds lovely, I've never been to one, living in Manchester the weather isn't predictable enough to book one!
Gemini- enjoy your lunch with the lovely ladies.
AFM- I am just basically counting down until my early scan. Until then I'm not letting myself believe it, self preservation and all that. I am on symptom watch 100% of the time, I have had waves of nausea, but not actually been sick. How bad is it that I'm wishing for morning sickness?! I am sleeping really well at the moment which is fairly out if character, which I'm relieved about as last time I was awake at 5am and unable to get back to sleep. I keep silently talking to my little baby and telling it to grow!
04/05/2013 at 09:21
Imp I was exactly the same as you. When I was waiting for my early scan. Wishing that I had morning sickness , I think it's totally normal.
I am really tired, and I think the antibiotics are making my ms bad again. We are supposed to be going to a BBQ today, I don't feel like it though.
04/05/2013 at 09:32
Morning all, after having lovely weather all week we have woken up to a drizzly grey morning! Humph! Think it's supposed to clear up though, we're off out shortly to pick up our new car and hopefully going to look at some baby stuff :-)
Jem - Bless you, I hate having sore boobs! Good luck with the packing, don't tire yourself out too much!
Custard - That sounds like a lovely evening, I'm jealous!
Gemini - Have a lovely lunch :-) don't overdo it with packing etc either.
Imp - I hope the time until the early scan goes quickly for you. Waiting is horrible but will be worth it I'm sure xx
Viv - Hope you feel better as the day goes on.
04/05/2013 at 11:24
Cant believe im posting here but here we go!
Jem hope you get packed up ok. I didn't realise you were going back to our folks. Sorry if I've missed it but how did things go with your OH? Also I can't believe your giving away tests, I just bought more y'day so I can test everyday basically up to my scan! Lol! Yes I am mental!
Custard that sounds awesome! I live in Scotland so even less likely to get weather for that!
Gemini hope your lunch is good, sounds like a nice day out!
Imp hope your ok lovey, I'm also on scan count down! I've felt a bit sicky this morning but still mega early for me so not expecting anything.
Viv hope your feeling a bit better. If your about later I'll post my email address, I would love to see your first scan pic if that's still ok?
BE oooh new car! What are you getting? Hope the weather improves and you have fun shopping.
AFM still can't believe I'm on here but at the sametime I actually feel quite positive about things (no idea why!) so after getting 2-3 today I'm even more sure that I OVd around the 17th/18th (we DTD on the 16th) which makes me about 4+3. EPU will scan me (because I have the bicornate uterus and they want to check where the embryo has implanted) but not until after 8 weeks so I've booked an early scan for 2 weeks today which should make me about 6+3. I'll be bricking it on the day but feels a long way off yet and as I say for some reason I actually feel quite positive that this wee bean might be a sticky long termer so feeling relatively ok at the mo!xx
04/05/2013 at 12:06
Hope it's ok to join in?
Jem, I am earlier than you but with you on the sore boob and constant loo trips. I never knew it would start ths early. Good luck with the move.
Custard, hope you have a lovely time at the cinema, that sounds ace,.
Gemini, I hope the sickness goes or at least doesn't ruin your weekend.
Imp, wishing you lots of morning sickness, but only to keep you reassured.
Vivixon, hoping time flies for you.
Bumpenvy, enjoy the new car and have fun in the baby aisles.
Missdeedee, sending you lots of sticky vibes, we ov'd on the same day. Will keep fingers crossed until your scan.
AFM I am very early at 4+3, I saw my gp yesterday as I was there anyway, but I guess not much will happen for a couple of weeks. Still trying not to get too excited but its so hard! I'm still in a daze about it all. Now panicking as we booked a holiday to Thailand the night before we found out. I will be there from 12 to 14 weeks so hoping I don't miss any scans.
This lovely bank holiday weekend will be spent looking for a new washing machine - oh what joy.
Have a great weekend all.

Hi all I hope everyone's having a good start to the long bank holiday weekend? Nice to see misdeedee and mrs penguin in here.
Just got in to find an important looking brown envelope on the door mat. I'm pleased to say we are officially low risk for Down's syndrome 1:15138 chance apparently. Another thing i don't have to worry about. X
04/05/2013 at 15:58
Imp, I can totally understand about the morning sickness, when it's been such a journey to get here, that's kind of the big giveaway isnt it!? I'm off my food at the moment and really struggling to eat much but again not been sick
vivixon, that must be horrible, just use the weekend as an excuse to get some rest
Bumpenvy, hope you enjoyed your shopping trip! I ended up in kiddicare this morning and had to keep reminding myself I can't buy anything at all yet
missdeedee sorry I haven't updated. OH is having a few problems at the moment and hasn't said anything for definite. However, he has said the house is going on the market next week and he has taken me shopping today and bought me some vitamins and clothes. I'm so bloated I already can't get into any of my normal clothes!!! I'm moving temporarily back to my parents because work have moved me pretty much to the other side of the county and I can't cope with the drive, they live halfway between me and work so will do for the time being. I can't believe I'm here either, keep wanting to pinch myself, feels like a complete miracle, i really hope your scan goes well in 2 weeks.
mrspenguin, hope your scans fit around your holiday. I've always wanted to go to thailand, it looks amazing!
mrsB that's great news!!!

Sorry I never returned yesterday, ended up doing playstop gym yesterday with LO, then lunch then my friend dragged me on 6mile wall, then I had to zoom round Tesco, then go sort my horse, get LO's tea, put her to bed, make a curry for H & i and finally colapse in a heap :-)
Got my trailer fixed today. Hurrah. Only £150 in parts, mechanics labour was free as his girlfriend sometimes borrows trailer! Have decided to hang onto car and trailer for now and review the situation next Jan I.e. when car Tax is due but MOT still has 4months to run! Baby wise - been really queasy. Blurgh. Dont feel like I'm actually gonna be sick, just that nagging queasy feeling. But Yaay for symptoms!
05/05/2013 at 10:17
Jem - good luck with the packing and the move. I can't imaginne moving back in with my parents - you're brave! Ha ha.
Custard - how was the open air cinema?
Gemini- hope the packing and house shopping went eell- bet you can't wait to move.
Imp - oh bless you talkking to your baby. It's not bad to be wishing for MS, I'm doing the same.....
Vivixion - how are you feeling today, any better?
BE - ooh what car did you get?
MrsP - hello! I'm going on holiday for week 12-13, and I'll have to rearrange my 12 week scan too. It must happen, especially in the summer months, so hopefully they have plans for this kind of thing!
Missdeedee - yay for the 2-3 and for the positivity :-)
MrsB - good news on the DS. Hope you're having a lovely weekend.
HF - wow another busy day for you!
AFM - I feel like crap today. I woke up at 7am and lay in bed staring at the ceiling for 3 hours worrying about this job situation. I'm supposed to resign on Tuesday but am having a major panic about it all. H has just kicked me out of bed and is forcing me to get dressed and get out of the house today. Don't feel like doing anything. Also had more brown spotting this morning so who knows what's going on. I might not have a job issue after all. Sorry for moaning but I need to let it out somewhere.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Hi penny I've just read your other thread about your new job. I haven't been in your situation but if I was I think I would tell your new employers that your pregnant before you resign from your other job. I know they shouldn't retract their job offer but I think I could understand if they were a little pee'd off. If you don't tell them til you start and you're 4.5 months and they don't like it they could make it tough for you. I think if I was an employer I would appreciate the honesty from the start. Also from your perspective you won't have anything to worry about as everything will be out in the open. Please keep us updated xxx
05/05/2013 at 12:41
Thanks MrsB. I think I'm just in a slump that I can't drag myself out of, which is stupid cos I'm pregnant and have a great new job to look forward to so I have no right whatsoever to moan....I'm just so worried about doing the wrong thing that i can't stop thinking about it. I don't think these pregnancy hormones help either! I really want to tell the new employer but I've not even told my parents yet and probably won't for several weeks yet so it seems wrong to do that. I think my most sensible option is to tell the new employer after the 12 week scan, which is still 5 ish weeks before I would start. Anything could happen yet, I know that. And that still gives them time to withdraw their offer and for me to beg to stay in my job! Going to the new job is the right thing to do, I just need to make sure I handle it right.
What are your plans for this afternoon? I'm going to the pub with friends for lunch soon - and guess who's the designated driver?? Ha ha.
05/05/2013 at 13:19
Jem, that's not great about your work but makes sense to go to our folks. Have you told your mum about the baby? I know your OH has alot going on also but I'm sure things will work out for the best in the end. I'm with you on the bloating, I've had the hair bobble button trick going for the past two days!
Mrs B that's great news, good start to the weekend for you!
HF you had one seriously busy day y'day! Hope your having a lazy day today!
Penny I saw your other post, I'm not sure what's best love, as you say the important thing is you and the baby and trying not to stress but I would be exactly the same! They legally can't retract the offer, the difficult thing is your 3 months notice, if you were starting soon you could have just told them in a few weeks and said you didn't know! What does your H think is best? I know he works with you now so will know more about the job and the employers?
AFM I went to my parents last night for dinner and my sister was there and my mum gave us both a lovely little box and inside was loads of pics of us as babies/kids, my baby braclet from the hospital, weight card and other things like my brownie sash and badges etc. Was so nice and so strangely timed so I told her about the pregnancy. We were going to wait but I'd want her to know again if anything went wrong so didnt see the point in not saying. Felt ok yesterday but today I've felt sick all day so far and I've also got a bit of a sorehead that I just can't shift! The sickness is full on (although not actually been sick) I feel like I've got a mega hangover and that way that you can't even imagine eating anything and you just want to sleep! Despite feeling rough I'm really glad of the symptoms, so happy to deal with it x
05/05/2013 at 14:11
I think I'm going to accept the offer and say I didn't know. At this point, if I wasn't actively ttc, I might still not be aware. My H knows how much I hate it at our work, and how much I want the new job so he basically said to go for it and if I end up jobless we'll use some of our savings until the Maternity Allowance kicks in (which is all I'm getting anyway). So he's supportive which is good but he's not the one who actually has to do it iykwim.
Awww that was a sweet gift from your mum, and what strange timing! I bet it was lovely to see all your baby bits and pieces. And yay for symptoms, even though you're feeling a bit rough :-)
