Morning all, how is everyone this morning?
I'm still buzzing from my yoga class yesterday morning, I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for next week. Baby wise, all is ok. I *think* I may have felt some flutters last night but not really sure. Possibly still too early.
What you have planned this weekend? We're going to look at bathroom tiles today, fun hey! Tomorrow we'll take it as it comes.
Have a good one and hi to those who follow.

Morning WG - Pleased to hear you enjoyed yoga. was it a pregnancy yoga class? Ive considered one, but wasn't sure. Time will tell if the flutters you felt are baby or not :) I hope they were!
I'm working today and Sunday.. yay! ha! H is away assessing a DofE group so I guess its not so bad that i'm having to work. Baby wise all is ok, still having the odd pain, they woke me up again last night. Fingers crossed it eases soon.
Hi to all that follow, have a lovely weekend xxx

Morning WG and Boo.
Im pleased you enjoyed your yoga class WG- I also do a weekly pregnancy yoga class and love it. It is also quite comical seeing lots of pregnant women trying to maneuver bump into said position!
Boo- I hope work goes quickly for you. Do you manage to have the bank holiday Monday off?
H and I are off to a bbq and then meeting his brothers for a drink before the boys all go to the local beer festival whilst I spend the evening with a girlie friend. It should be quite a nice day.
Happy weekend and hi to all that follow x

Boo - it isn't specifically a pregnancy yoga class but the teacher is trained in pregnancy yoga so she adapts or gives me alternatives positions when necessary. She does do a pregnancy class locally but I can't make that particular day unfortunately. I hope work isn't too bad and that the pains soon ease. Are they pains in your bump?
Peachy - haha I'm sure some positions will be interesting the bigger bump gets! It sounds like you have a nice weekend planned, enjoy! Just noticed you're due the day before me :-)

WG - glad yoga was good! I'm going to start doing my yoga book this week. I've slacked off lately with the house move and my back has suffered. Hope you find some tiles! It might be flutters! Hope so :)
Boo - hope work isn't too bad. Hope the pains ease soon.
Peachy - sounds like a lovely day you have planned! Hope the weather holds out.
AFM - had the girls round last night which was lovely. H is on a lads weekend so thought I'd invite them round. Haven't seen them in so long so it lovely catching up. Got one of my best friends coming round tonight for a takeaway and sleepover. Should be fun. Today I might attempt to make a start on tackling the garden which is overgrown. Not sure how my back will hold out though :/
In baby news, after my worry of quiet movements, I've spent quite a bit of time really concentrating on them and have noticed them much more. I think it must have been because I've been so busy. Also H felt a kick for the first time on Thursday night which was lovely. His face just lit up it was so cute :)
Hello to laters and lurkers x

WG glad you enjoy the yoga, I'm going to look into it later on. Enjoy tile shopping!
Boo hope work goes quickly for you and your pains ease.
Peachy sounds like a lovely day, enjoy the BBQ
Browny glad you had a good night, enjoy your takeaway tonight. Be careful in the garden with your back. Lovely for your h to feel baby!
Off to London to meet some friends today as its one of their birthdays. It wasn't organised properly until yesterday so I'm hoping everyone gets there on time, my friend is a nightmare at arranging stuff and normally relies on us to do it but we said as it was her birthday she had to choose what we were going to do. Think we are having a wander round Covent garden then having a late lunch.

Thank you for all of the hope that the weather holds- fingers crossed!
WG- oh yes I hadn't noticed that before. Bunny you must also be due in the same week? Exciting stuff!
Browny- enjoy the sleepover that sounds like fun! Hope you have lots of chocolate and ice cream at the ready?
Bunny enjoy your day in London- I love Convent Garden, so fun to watch the street performers.
Have fun ladies.

Browny - enjoy catching up with your friend tonight. Hope your back is okay enough to get some gardening done.
Bunny - have a lovely time in London.
Well, we've been tiling shopping and now I'm more confused than ever about what I thought I wanted. There's far too much choice our there! Feeling very tired today so I'm looking forward to a night in front of the telly with a takeaway tonight. Ooh a soak in the bath beforehand though!
03/05/2014 at 20:45
Yes peachy we must be! Im the 15th. Its going to be a very busy October if the babies behave themselves and arrive near their due dates!
WG I agree on the too much choiCE! If I can't decide on something I tend to choose about 3 and let h make the decision. Then I normally realise that actually I want one of the other ones! A bath sounds great, might have one too now you've made me think of it.
Had a nice day but very tired now. I find that I'm not too good at the most with full days out, I get too tired. Was hoping this might ease off in the 2nd tri!

Peachy - I hope you enjoyed the BBQ yesterday, perfect weather for it! Unfortunately I do not get the Monday off either. I have today off so I shall be enjoying the sunshine whilst I can :) There are quite a few of us due in the same week, maybe 5 or 6 of us that i can remember! Exciting time ahead.
WG- The pains were lower bump/groin area, so I'm assuming they were stretching pains. They continued throughout the day yesterday but they have stopped today. Would you recommend a yoga class? Did you do it before you were pregnant?
Browny - Amazing that H felt baby kick! Did you managed to have a day in the garden yesterday? I hope your back was ok.
Bunny - I love covent garden! I hope you had a lovely afternoon.
afm - I am going to enjoy the sun today as I am working tomorrow. I got a msg from H yesterday saying that we're now day guests to a wedding that we were initially invited to the evening for. I now have 4 days to find something to wear! Online it will have to be as maternity occasion wear in stores are far and few between. Fingers crossed I find something!
Hi to all that follow xxx

Sorry I haven't been around this week, work is a bit pants, and we went to York for a couple of days to celebrate my dad's 60th,
WG - what sort of tiles are you thinking, we just had our bathroom done but luckily, I knew exactly what we wanted. Hope you had a nice takeaway.
Boo - sorry you have to work! I would suggest just getting a nice non-maternity maxi dress, easy to dress up with wedges and nice accessories, and should last a bit through pregnancy too.
Browny - lovely that H felt little one kick, can't wait for that bit. How is the new home, are you settling in OK?
Peachy - hope you enjoyed the BBQ and catching up with friends.
Bunny - where did you go for lunch? I used to work in Covent Garden and do love it there.
AFM - not much to report. Feeling lots more wiggles which is nice. Still not sure what is going on with work...there's a meeting with the new agency on Tuesday as to whether they will give me a job or pay me off (I would definitely prefer the latter!). Am halfway today, which feels like a real milestone. Scan on Wednesday, which I am starting to feel a bit nervous about.
Happy weekends all!

Bunny - I know just what you mean. I hate making decisions so ask H but then I don't agree with his suggestion haha. Bless him, I often tell him he has no taste with things like that. Tiredness hasn't really eased for me either - by the end of the day I'm exhausted!
Boo - I'm pleased to hear the pains have stopped. If they worry you at all, please do ring your MW. It's always best to run it past someone just to put your mind at ease if nothing else. I've done yoga on and off for years (mainly off these last few years!) and I'd always recommend it to people whether they're pregnant or not. This is the first time I have done it whilst pregnant though but I just found being chilled out and calm for a whole hour really beneficial. The gentle stretching is nice too and as bump gets bigger some of the postures will help make space and feel a little more comfortable hopefully. I have also done pilates in the past and that was fab but I've not tried it during pregnancy. When pregnant with F I did do aqua natal yoga and would recommend that too.
Gavi - we're having the whole ensuite re-done and having some cupboards built in so we have somewhere to store stuff. We think we've decided on gloss white cabinets with a glittery black worktop. I wanted matt white tiles for the walls too but thinking about adding some strips of mosaics to break it all up a little. I'm just worried it's going to be too black a white! It's only a small room so I'm not really sure if I'm just being pedantic about it all. I hope you find out more from work on Tuesday, fingers crossed for the pay off! Happy half way day and yay to scan on Wed!
It's a lovely day here. H has been out the front trimming the hedges and I've been ironing with music playing loud whilst F plays in the garden. I'm also starting to believe this all might be happening day, what with the bleeding and everything I've tried not to get excited about it all just in case. It's amazing what difference a bit of sunshine makes!

WG - how exciting to feel flutters. Hope you're having a nice weekend
Boo - hope the pains have eased off. Enjoy your bank holiday
Peachy - hope you had a nice weekend
Browny - sounds like you have a lovely weekend planned. Yay for h feeling the kicks
Bunny - hope lunch worked out ok?
Gavi - hope the scan goes well x
AFM - h and I had a night away in Gloucester last night was lovely, came home today and did some shopping this afternoon. Tomorrow I'm seeing my parents and friends for dinner in the evening. Not much to report on the baby side if things. I'm still feeling tired, please tell me it will wear off soon xx
05/05/2014 at 10:15
Boo hope you enjoyed the sun yesterday and work isn't too bad today. Have you found anything for the wedding?
Gavi that's lovely that you can feel more wiggles. I'm sure your scan will be fine. Hope work give you what you want.
WG yes it is happening! The sun does make a difference, I made h go to mothercare for the first time this pregnancy yesterday. Got any plans for today?
Mrs l a night away sounds lovely. Enjoy dinner tonight. I'm afraid I'm still tired, its eased off a bit but any activity above the norm and I'm shattered!
We are gardening today so I will have to make sure I don't overdo it. In laws are coming to help this afternoon too. Think I might have to dig out the suncream!
