Hope you aren't working all weekend.
We have the buyers of our campervan coming to collect it. Very sad to see him go but know it makes sense. Then we are planning a major tip run, my h thinks I'm nesting already, but I just want to take advantage of feeling good. I'm feeling fab after a pregnancy massage yesterday, was bliss!
Hi to all and hope you all have great weekends.

Morning MS hope your work goes quickly!
I'm off work now for 2 weeks, wooooo hooooo!! We've got friends coming along for lunch today, no plans for tomorrow. So looking forward to the next couple of weeks, were not going abroad but we will be looking at cars, prams, nursery furniture and I have my scan a week on Monday. Think we might go to edinburgh maybe next week as the festival is on.
I'm just glad not to be at work for 2 weeks!
Everything fine with me, used the doppler again last night and heartbeats going strong, about 20 mins after that I then felt what was most definitely the baby! It was the same sort of thump in the same place 3 times in about 20 mins. I was delighted! xx

Mrs P, sad to see the camper go but I'm glad you got it sold so quickly. Was the massage really good? I could so go one, I feel permanently sore at the moment.
Hope you get all the tidying done, I'm have major tidying planned over the next couple of weeks, we have a cupboard at the top of the stairs that's about to burst!x

MDD, enjoy your 2 weeks off, sounds bliss. The massage was amazing, I knew my back ached but she found so many knotted points. I swear I was 2 inches taller afterwards.

Morning all, this could potentially be my last post on 2nd tri, got a busy day tomorrow so not sure i'll make it on but I will try. Been swimming with H and Isla already this morning, it was nice and quiet, back home now and Isla's gone down for her nap. Staying at home for lunch then we're going to pop out this afternoon but not sure where yet.
Out with friends tomorrow to a summer fete. Hoping Isla will be able to meet peppa pig!
MS don't work too hard x
MrsP glad you're feeling fab after your massage. x
MDD yay for holiday and yay for feeling baby move! Sounds like you have a fab two weeks ahead of you. Enjoy and take it easy x

Hi ladies, H is taking our LO shopping this affy (presumably for my birthday pressie!) after dropping me at yard so I can ride my horse (we only have 1 car). Tonight I'm going out for a curry/girly night with a couple of friends. Tomorrow my parents are popping down to see us. Dad will drive himself to work on Monday morning, Mum staying bit longer to babysit whilst we are at scan on Monday and me+her going out Monday evening. She is getting train home on Tuesday. I'm just about to make a lasagna and plum cake to feed them with tomorrow night!
MS boo to working weekends!
MrsP massage sounds fab! We are going to centre parcs in Sept. I'm planning a day on my own in spa and hopefully they do pregnancy massage too.
MDD hurrah for no work, baby kicks and heartbeats. Must get my doppler out - been resisting so far in case can't find heartbeat!

O.m.g. Hubby just texted me from burger king. Really fancy a burger now. Texted him back telling him to bring a burger. He says he's already left. Errr hello, waving the pregnant wife flag here!!!!! Bring me a sodding burger!!
03/08/2013 at 14:38
Did he bring you one HF. I've just had a chicken salad, but am now salivating at the thought of a whopper!

AFM It's been one hell of a week. tbh can't actually remember what I put in my post the other day. Long story but last Sunday I had some really sharp pains at the bottom of my bump that actually had me in tears and I was struggling to breathe with them. Monday was very achy but not too bad. Then Tuesday I got half way to work and the pain really set in. I walked through the door and someone told me I looked like chalk (nothing like making you feel better!!!). I left it an hour and was still struggling so I rang the midwife just for some reassurance. She put me through to the PANDA unit who told me to go straight in. I know I drove down there but I've no idea how! Got there and they listened for babys heartbeat which luckily they were able to find pretty quickly then had a bit of a poke around which was soooo painful! Dr came over and told me they were concerned the cyst I had might rupture so they were admitting me, would scan me to see how things looked and would potentially be operating that afternoon if the cyst looked like it might rupture or be twisted. In the meantime I was kept nil by mouth. When they took me for my scan it showed the cyst had already ruptured so the pain was from that and from the fluid there. Baby looked fine but had their head where the cyst used to be so just aggravating it more. They decided they wanted to keep me in overnight to make sure both me and baby were ok and gave me meptid with an anti sickness injection. About hald an hour later I wa very very sick all over me, the bed, everywhere which was lovely! The midwife helped me to the shower and sat me in there and brought me some shower gel and a robe so I could get cleaned up. When I came out they brought me some toast and told me just to eat what I could (which was all of one slice despite not having eaten all day!!) My brother dropped off a bag with some clothes for me and OH visited for an hour. When the dr did his rounds the next morning he repeated what I'd already been told and said I could go home and rest or stay in and rest but whatever I did it was the rest bit that was important. He was lovely which considering how much I don't like doctors was a real surprise!! I chose to go home and my uncle came to pick me up about an hour later. Spent 2 days sleeping and went back in to work yesterday albeit at about half speed. The other girl in the office was absolutely vile, she pretty much blanked me all day, I even apologised for them keeping me in and she just bit my head off saying 'you know I don't like being left on my own' so that really got my back up. But 84 days to go before I finish and I really am going to do everything I can not to have to go back. Still a bit sore and tired now but they said I probably would be for another week or so until all the fluid was absorbed and the irritation has gone. Baby has been kicking away which is great but keeps catching the bit that hurts which brings me to tears again but at least I know all is ok
Wow that was an essay!!!!! Need to get on here more often lol

Jem. That's sounds awful. Hope your feeling better now. Cant believe the other girl at the office was so rude about it! Get plenty of rest.
All - i work every Saturday unfortunately, as im a beauty therapist. Cant complain though as i only work two days a week, (Mon and sat)
03/08/2013 at 20:11
Oh Jem, how awful and terrifying for you. I'm glad you're on the mend and that baby is ok. Take it easy for a while now and stuff that horrid woman at work. What a b i t c h xx

Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend :) & the weather has been as nice as it has been up north, hot with a cold breeze perfect!!
Jem sounds awful, hope you are feeling better & rest as much as you can!!
AFM had a relaxing weekend as the next 5 weekends are jam packed party, weddings, Edinburgh & London!! Just ordered some converse as I have a feeling I will be needing some comfortable shoes for all the walking I will be doing!!
04/08/2013 at 12:30
Yes, H went back thru drive-thru and got me a burger. Hurrah. Horse looked a bit lame yesterday, hoping its nothing serious. In fact he had new shoes last weds, so I am actually hoping the Farrier fitted one too tight or something (tis preferable to horse having injured himself!). 20week scan tomorrow. (Even tho I'll only be 19+5)
04/08/2013 at 18:59
Evening all. A stay-at-home whilst recovering from the food poisoning weekend for me! Feeling much better today but weather has been dreadful!
04/08/2013 at 20:02
