Morning! How are we all today?
We're off to H's dads this weekend. He lives by the coast so if the weather stays nice hopefully we can head down to the seaside or something. What's everyone else up to?

Ooh enjoy Penny, sounds bliss!
My H is away with the lads tonight and its the first night on my own in the new house (we've been in a year!) I can't wait. Trashy tv and a long bath for me. I think I will have a walk in the park to enjoy the sunshine too.
Hi to all that follow.
01/06/2013 at 12:38
Penny - hope you get some sun :-)
Hi MrsP - sounds like you have relaxing on the agenda too. Good for you.
I have a small announcement... I have finished the decorating. Hurrah!!
And I've ordered material for curtains- my sister made LO some bunting and every 5th panel is using this material so should tie in nicely - what do you think?
01/06/2013 at 13:31
HF, well done on the decorating! That material is gorgeous x
01/06/2013 at 14:08
Morning all, Penny hope you have a lovely weekend and hope the sun stays out for you.
Mrs P enjoy your free night, sounds good!
HF mega well done on the decorating!! That material is really nice, it will look so cute! Do you have any gut feelings as to whether this one is blue or pink?
AFM terrible news this morning, my friend who is pregnant has had a MC, she's just over 12 weeks and had her scan booked on Monday. She was in hospital yesterday and got home today. I'm so upset for her and just shocked really. I've been so desperate to tell her and was thinking of doing so after our scan next sat. I don't even know what to say, just gutted and really scared again.

I'm writing this from bed. Been up since 7 am for no reason and now I'm having a nap!
Penny I hope you enjoy the seaside if you get to it, sounds lovely on a day like today.
Mrs penguin, enjoy your you time! I love a day/night like that every once in a while.
HF the never ending decorating is finally finished!!!! Yay! Love the fabric too, very cute!
It's gorgeous and sunny here today so we've been out for lunch and a bit of a stroll. It's been nice. I'm exhausted though now so I'm off to sleep for a bit.
01/06/2013 at 14:51
Penny that sounds lovely, enjoy yourselves!
MrsP I love having the place to myself to do things like that, enjoy!
HorseFan congratulations on finishing the decoration! now you can put your feet up for a while!
missDD that is horrible news, your poor friend. You just assume that once you get so far along you are out of the danger period but this proves not. I don't know what tosay about telling her your news, maybe leave it a bit. Im sure she will be thrilled for you but it might be a bit hard to take for a while!
Imp- I didnt get back on y.day, my interview is wed 12! I have to find suitable interview outfits that fits now!!
Last night we got a Chinese take away and got the projector out to watch Game of Thrones! I even treated myself to a couple of alcohol free beers!
H headed of this morning so I have had a stroll to the shops, got some washing on the line and have been chilling in the sun. Got a bit too hot so Ive come in too cool down for a bit! I think my friend took pity on me when I said H was away all weekend so we are going out for dinner tonight! He is very excited about the 2 for 1 on cocktails offer they do, going to have to worm my way out of that one somehow!!
01/06/2013 at 14:57
Only just see your post mdd, that's really sad and I bet really difficult to take in. I hope she's ok. Hope you are too.
Mrs bass, enjoy your evening out. Even without the cocktails! I've no idea what is wear to an interview at the moment, i feel like a whale!
02/06/2013 at 08:53
Morning ladies, looks like we are going to have another sunny day here, looking forward to catching up with my friends and their 4 month old later today!!! Can't wait for baby cuddles!!
Had a great evening last night! My friend seemed happy enough with me saying that I was just cutting back on booze at the moment! Had a couple of mocktails and a nice dinner, then we walked along the harbourside to meet some more friends at a pub for a few drinks. Luckily as they are all boys they didnt seem to pick up on my multiple trips to the loo!
Pregnancy wise Im am feeling fine, which is still a bit unnerving! Although my friend told me she felt fine until week 14! Getting really nervous about scan on Thursday now!!
02/06/2013 at 09:04
Sounds like a lovely evening mrs bass. I'm glad your friend believed you. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have got away with it, I clearly am too much if a drinker! Lol.
There's no point me saying don't worry about the scan, as I know that's impossible. Not long to wait now though so hopefully the next few days fly by for you. What time is it at on Thursday?
I've managed to sleep in until 8.30 this morning which is a record in this pregnancy. Going to go out for a pub lunch and a walk this afternoon. I want to make the most of the sunshine and get a bit of exercise, I don't want to turn into the size of a house ( not yet anyway!)
02/06/2013 at 10:13
Im surprised I did, i did get a text from a friend saying the friend i was with had text him to say i wasnt drinking as id had an intervention!!! It was just a joke but i though that would have actually have been a good and sadly believable excuse to have used!!
luckily its at 10am so i wont have to wait all day!! im going to focus on preparing for the interview for the next few days to take my mind of it!!
I know we have said this before but i never thought I would be wishing that I had morning sickness or some other symptoms!! :-)
That sounds like a great day! Ive been waking up early too, 7am this morning which sucks for a sunday!
I am already well on my way to becoming the size of a house unfortunately! I look pregnant but it is all blubber at the moment!!
02/06/2013 at 10:29
Morning ladies, Mrs Bass glad you got away with the no drinking and you had a good night. It's good you have the interview to distract you from the scan. I hope next week goes quickly for you.
Imp I love a pub lunch, hope you have a good time. I also fear I'm going to be huge, I've just got back from walking the dog and met two of our neighbours outside and I'm so conscious that I've got a belly, they must think I've been on the pies! With this warmer weather it's hard to hide it too as I didn't have my usual dog walking multi layers on!!
I was starting to worry last night that I didn't feel as bloated etc but think its just panic after my friends news yesterday. I look huge again today and have felt pretty sick all morning so I'm sure all is fine! I've got my exam on Monday, which I've not really done much for, I've pretty much given up now and then hoping next week passes quickly as we have our private scan on Saturday. I'm just wishing the weeks away at the moment!x
02/06/2013 at 10:40
Hopefully the interview distracts you and you get the job mrs bass.
Missdeedee, I know what you mean. When I was out yesterday I was conscious that my belly was on show, H said it wasn't but I was convinced it was. I feel like my bloating had gone down a bit, I'm a bit worried about it too. I'm trying not to get too worked up as I've only really a week and a half until my scan. Not long until yours, eeek!
Good luck for the exam anyway, you might surprise yourself!
02/06/2013 at 13:05
Sorry ive been awol..still no internet at the house so having to use my phone.
Sky and broadband being fitted in two weeks so will be back on the ipad daily! Although by then ill be in 2nd tri..eeks!
I hope you're all well and enjoying the sunshine, if you have it! Were doing gardening bits today as well as trying to pack, we go to Turkey for two weeks tomorrow, can't wait! Have another scan tomorrow morning too as I was too early for nuchal last time.
Will check in when I get back but take care everyone! Look after those babies!
02/06/2013 at 14:02
GeminiLook after those babies!
This made me feel all
We have babies in our tummies!!

Hi ladies, well I went out to a band in a pub last night, didn't get home till midnight, LO woke up just as I went to bed, spent flipping ages resettling her and then eventually got to sleep myself approx half 1. Got up at half 7, went to yard, was out riding for 9am. Lovely ride. Home for 12. Shower and walked into town to go to medieval festival. Ate hog roast followed by strawberries & cream (Yum!) and watched some sword fighting and birds of prey (LO really like the huge owl). Feel surprising okay. Maybe I will crash & burn later :-)

Hi all. Just a quick one as still at FIL's and on my phone.
Mrs Penguin - hope you enjoyed last night?
HF, love that material. Sounds like you've had a fab day today too.
MDD - oh, your poor friend, how gutting. I can't imagine how that feels. Maybe keep your news quiet for a little while, until she's able to deal with her loss a bit more.
Imp, hope you had a lovely walk and lunch.
Mrs Bass - not long til your scan, exciting :-)
Gemini - have a fab time in turkey!
Afm - had an ok weekend, did loads of walking along the seafront but starting getting stitch-like pains so tried to take it easy. Had a Piña Colada flavoured milkshake (it uses syrup, not alcohol) in the sunshine, which was AMAZING. Want to go home now but FIL is insisting that we stay for dinner. Which is nice of him, I know, but I'm tired, and just want to curl up on the sofa in my jammies now!
