oooh sounds uncomfortable. The heat won't help at all will it. Keep bouncing. Only 21 days if worst case scenario and he doesn't come before the induction date. I know that seems like forever but hopefully it will go quickly. How's Jake btw? Is that him in the picture?
Jane I love the name Sophie. Its been one of our top names for a girl too. And it goes really well with Amelia. I haven't really had too much thought about names yet. I like Jack but its very common. I like Reggie too but other half hates it so that's out. For a girl we already picked Lily Sue (middle name Sue is both of our mum's names). Not 100% if we'll have Lily yet. I quite like Thea for a girl too.
Boys names are tricky though aren't they. Spencer was a favourite for a while but not as sure anymore. Its tricky... Have you thought of a boys name just in case? 2 weeks until your scan- not long!
The names Lily Sue and Sophie Amelia are super cute. I am already set on a girl name if I have one, but we had to go through over 100 names before we agreed on a boy name. I think the men are more picky about boy names so it's harder to find one.
I have pretty much been rolling out of bed, putting on whatever fits and coming to work. Today I am actually wearing a dress so I thought I'd post a bump pick. I only have to come into the office for 6 more days. YAY for working from home!
Before my due date was July 23, but they were going to wait until August 1st to induce me. I"M SO GLAD I only have 21 days left! LOL. Much more doable than 34 days, so I think I can hang in there.
And yes, that's my sweetie Jake in the pic. He was only about 3 months there. He is doing good. He struggles with the heat as well since he is an old guy so we have been chilling out in the A/C together.
Wow mackjess you look great! Your bump has grown a lot since the last pic you posted. Love the dress too. I can imagine it would be frustrating waiting as you get to the end. It must put a lot of strain on your back. I love the name Finn for a boy its really cute.
Jake is too cute! He looks like a very friendly dog.
If it wasn't and muggy I don't think it would be too bad. I'm just bigger and slower, but far from miserable. I only feel bad about 5% of the day and that is probably when I first get up and gravity sets in, other than my feet. Got some compression socks to wear around the house as it's too warm to not wear sandals outside, and that helped yesterday. Wish I'd gotten them sooner, so ladies if your feet get bad don't wait like I did!
I saw two ladies in the waiting room that had some serious large and in charge bumps, and they moaned just getting up and sitting down. It was another 90+ degree day, and I felt so bad for them. I'm grateful I'm not there yet and hopefully stay where I'm at the next few weeks. My last day of work is July 11, so at least if I am at that point I won't have to go anywhere.
Love the photos ladies, just wonderful. Mackjess you look fab in thedress! So today I am saying hello pregnancy! Nausea, no appetite , tired. Test line almost as dark as control. Will stop when same colour, hopefully a couple of days. Feeling crappy but good, you understand!
MLM you should take a pic now even if you don't post it. That way when you are 11, 14 weeks you have the comparison. How have you been feeling.
Phez, welcome to pregnancy! lol, hope the first tri isn't too hard on you.
Lovely bump bobster. And it's pretty common here in the states to work up til you have the baby. One girl in my office was at work Friday and had her baby Sunday! When I told someone I would be induced on the 18th but my last day of work was deffo the 12th, they asked "why so early?" Ha. But it's an office job so not too much of a strain on me. Hope that continues. I work 3 days in the office next week and 3 days in the office the week after and I'm done. I have a feeling I might sneak in an extra day or two working from home that last week.
AFM, no change. Finn seems comfy and chilling out still. OB appt later today but i think we'll just be confirming what time I come in on the 28th if he hasn't shown up by then, and nothing new.
The more I read about pregnancy/maternity leave in other countries, the more I think the US has got it wrong! I'm sure it has got to be terribly uncomfortable working right up to your due date. I know that's what I will have to do as well though.
I have been feeling significantly better the last few days. The nausea is so much more tolerable, and I think I've only thrown up once in the last 4 days. I will start taking weekly bump pics starting tomorrow I think, when I am officially 9 weeks.
I ordered a Doppler online the other day- DH thinks it's crazy, but supports it if it gives me peace of mind. I can't wait to get it!
