Wow ladies check out those bumps, lovely. Mine is coming along but still on the small side. When I get the laptop out I will post a pic.

My face is so spotty today!

Mlm and mrs phez, pleased you're feeling better and worse (more pregnant), respectively!

Liking the name lily sue bobster. Amelia is my mums middle name so partly why I wanted it as the bubs middle name, plus it's pretty and goes with Sophie. I like Luke for a boy but it won't go with my surname so was thinking Gregory/Greg but my family aren't so keen. After my 20 week scan once I know the sex I will borrow a name book from someone just to make sure I've made the right choice.

Bobster, are you excited for your shopping trip this weekend? I see mamas and papas have a sale online at the moment. I want to order some baby grows but still don't want to jinx it.

How was your OB appointment this afternoon mackjess?

Yey for the Doppler Mlm, you've still got a few weeks until you can use but exciting to receive it. Have you decided which room in the new house will be your nursery?

Jane i'm suffering with lots of spots too. I've been reading online and have been soaking my face in warm water with epson salt dissolved in it which seems to have dried the spots up a little but not completely. Then been using a cheap which hazel gel afterwards. Its terrible though- such a greaseball. I wish I had glowy skin like other pregnant ladies. I'll let you know how this regime goes though as if it helps you might want to try it.

Just been out for tea with a friend and had a goats cheese and red onion pizza. I looked it up on the NHS website beforehand and it said it was fine to eat cooked goats cheese but then when it came it was cooked but not sizzling. Now I'm worrying about the chance of listeria and feeling completely selfish and stupid for eating it. Eekk. Have you ladies ate anything you're not really meant to eat?

Phez I too am glad your symptoms are giving you reassurance. Its awful though isn't it. Feels like a constant hangover/travel sickness. Bleugh.

MLM glad you are starting to get over yours. You're lucky. Mine seemed to go on forever and even now I still get a moment or 2 of it but then it passes. Do you have any feelings about what you're having? I think taking bump pictures is a really good idea so you can compare yourself.

I think the US's maternity system sounds a bit unfair too. Maybe if you work in an area where you're not required to do much physical stuff its better but you must still get tired when not doing a lot and I think people deserve a few weeks to relax before all the sleepless nights come.

Oh let me know how the spot regime goes bobster- I'm on the clearasil. Just watching Eastenders and it's just come out that Kirsty's not pregnant!!- I wonder how many people do this in real life?

I wouldn't worry about the goats cheese on the pizza bobster, it would have been hot in the oven before it came to your table. I've had a couple of alcoholic desserts and wonder if I should but I honestly think its such a tiny amount it doesn't matter and its not like I've drunk a whole glass of wine or something.

Here is my 18 week bump photo, not a great pic sorry- my bump is still on the small side.

Mrs phez, do you think you will start showing sooner with #2? many women say that's the case.

Cute bump Jane! You can see its taking a baby shape which is lovely!

Thanks for the reassurance about the pizza. I think i'm just over worrying. Forgot to mention- I had another scan today at work! The dr who did it though is not used to scanning 2nd trimester babies so it was difficult for her to get a clear profile shot. Saw it wriggling around and kicking though which was amazing. She said she'll try again another time for a clear pic if I want. Yay!

Must watch eastenders. Bet Max has gone mad! She's so weird I don't know how she thought she'd get away with it... bizare!

Nice pic Jane! With Dexter I had aa lot of bloat which gave the game away quite early (to my boss anyway). And my bump itself was also quite early so I hope this one isn't earlier! We'' have to see. How on earth do you upload pics? You don't have to explain if it's a pain but I have no idea.......I'd love to share my test progression tho!

bobster, I wouldn't worry about the cheese. I've had plenty myself. I worry more about the meat being heated up enough.

mlm, glad you are feeling better.

nice little bump you are starting on Jane. And my appt went well. baby is still head down and we're still waiting.

phez, if you are posting click on go advanced and there's an option to manage attachments. I haven't uploaded them from my phone before.. I always have to email it to myself than save it to my pc.

How was your shopping trip bobster?

DH and I have decided to dismantle our office room completely and make it a dedicated nursery rather than trying to accommodate both really pleased about this as I know it would be a tight fit and disorganised. Not looking forward to finding a place for all the junk currently living in the office room though
