Yay Zeez! Glad your NT scan was a good one and everything is looking good!!! Sorry you didn't get any good pics I can't get a nice profile of Bean cause she is sitting with her head buried in my left hip so my bones get in the way of getting a good angle on that! But hopefully you'll get some good ones on your next scan So exciting for your DH to see all that and finally have it all feel real

Thanks for your suggestions on alleviating constipation. I eat fruit before every meal and vegetables with lunch and dinner. I eat a high fiber cereal for breakfast that is high in soluble and not just insoluble fiber. I have been eating a lot of clementine oranges but went out and bought some kiwis after reading your post. I'm not big on watermelon but I also bought some grapes. I love soup but DH won't cook it and I've just been too tired!!! But you're right, I should make more soups. I'll ask my mom to make one today as she is visiting with my dad. Also, I drink 9-10 cups of water/herbal tea and 3 cups of milk a day so I sure hope it's not dehydration!!!!! I think my body is just slooooooooowed down…it has to be the darn hormones cause if I eat more fruit and veg I'll have NO room for protein at this point THANK YOU for your suggestions though - let's see if the citrus helps things at all

As for me, I'm not sleeping much since about Monday so I'm TIRED. Just can't get comfortable and seems that as soon as I do, I have to get up and pee My back keeps spasming so I think Bobo Bean had a growth spurt and my body is trying to adjust to her new weight. At least I hope that's the case and it's only temporary!!! I'm exhausted. I took a new belly pic on Thursday (see below) and the whole updated progression is on my journal as always.

Hope everyone is well!!!! xx

Mrs chezek- So sorry for your constipation. i totally understand your pain. With pregnancy your hormones do slow your bowels down as everything is relaxed. i have been trying to drink more fluids but I also find it difficult. I hope you are able to sleep better after LO growth spurt but she will only get bigger from here I have been using extra pillows...but still finding it harder to sleep as well!

I have my followup u/s to check my LO kidneys this Wed. I hope all is ok. He has been moving like crazy..I even can see the little kicks now, still little hard though. Hope everyone is doing well!!

Here are my 12 week, 15 week, and 20 week belly pics!!

Hello lovely ladies!

Loving the bump pics - i will have to take some. I took some a couple of weeks ago but there weren't great! DH is not much of a photographer!! I will try and take some tomorrow before i go out. It is my birthday tomorrow and i just keep think this is the last birthday I will have before i am a mummy!!! I really can't believe i have only 15 weeks to go! I have been trying to work out mat leave but it gets quite complicated - but only have 10 weeks left at work after xmas!!!!!
She is moving loads now - and I love it, I thought it would be really weird but it makes me feel reassured that she is well.
The nursary is coming on well - I will post some pics once we have the furniture in place. Going to buy a glider chair on sunday and maybe look at a few other bits. There is just so much to get and so much choice it is difficult to know where to start!

Hope you all have a good week xxxx

Happy belated birthday Joey!!!!
Did you get to take any pics? Would love to see how your belly is progressing I look forward to your nursery pics. I can't wait to get started on ours!!!!

poppy - can't believe you're at 20 weeks already!!!! Looking forward to your team announcement. Any guesses as to what you're having? I had a 'fat day' today too! Went to the gym and just felt like an elephant around everyone else who was running around and exercising as I was sluggishly moving from machine to machine. Whenever I feel that way I put my hand on my tummy and feel for some kicks and think how lucky I am to be growing a beautiful baby girl and it makes me feel better At least for those few minutes

IT IS QUIET around here Where is everyone? Busy with the holidays I suppose…I haven't bought ONE xmas present yet! I am SO screwed! Need to get to the stores pronto. And our tree is half covered in lights and that's it. My mom is coming by tomorrow to help me finish decorating it. I just have NO energy. It's terrible cause xmas is my favorite time of year!!!! And normally I'm all about decorating, baking, singing carols and so on. This year, it's like I'm stuck in a sink hole and it's all passing me by and I'm too tired to try to keep up

Hope everyone is well though! Miss you ladies

Poppy- I see you are yeah!! welcome to my club

Chezek- It is quiet on here. I have been busy with xmas and trying to organize the "junk" in the room which will eventually become our little boys room. I didnt realize how much stuff I had stuffed in the closet and drawers hubby calls me a closet hoarder..

I know how hard it is to get this xmas stuff done with no energy... just get a bunch of gift cards, Im sure everyone will understand. My mom decorated my tree on Monday as well

AFM, Im sick with a head cold, not fun. I can't sleep either I had my u/s yesterday and no more hemorrhage!! But LO kidneys are still mildly larger then normal. I have to wait for them to call with a follow up. The kidneys may resolve on their own I hope before birth. My cervix is also soft but closed so I started on supps to prevent braxton hicks. On a better note, LO has been a little kick boxer...very reassuring!!

clarkey - YAY for no more hemorrhage!!! I'll keep everything crossed for your LO's kidneys though

poppy & sash - woo hoo for team !!!! We need more blue around here Congrats to both of you!


AFM, I continue to be just flat our tired SO much to do still this and next week but it's all exciting stuff so at least that is getting me through. I'm trying to put together our baby registry as I finally ordered my shower invites (for my mom who is hosting) and she'll be sending them out soon so I want to make sure people have a list when they go looking! There's so much stuff so it's overwhelming...we got most of our big items sorted out but now it's time to fill it out with the smaller stuff that guests can get for us...any cool ideas for stuff on your lists????
