Happy New Year to everyone! I hope all you ladies are doing well - babies are behaving, and that those on the way come safely and are heathy. I will be starting round 2 of Clomid in another week or so, and am thinking positive thoughts!

Happy 2013 to you all! Hope everyone is doing great. Emma, I had a dream last night that you went into labour! That's weird, I know. But I had a dream that Jen went into labour too and then it turns out she had, so hopefully it's good luck for you.

All is well here. I'm feeling pretty good. I started swimming this morning since walking outside is getting a bit chilly and uncomfortable. It was really nice to be in the pool. I didn't immediately feel like it made much difference to my back and the weight of my bump, but when I got back out, yikes, it all felt so heavy again! So hopefully it's helping. Hopefully it's also just generally good to get used to being in water since we're planning to have a water birth. I'm not typically someone who likes being in water all that much or loves the pool/beach, so I wasn't sure how that would go, but it was nice.

We also went for our maternity ward tour on Sunday. Even though we're hoping all goes well and we have a home birth, I still wanted to see the hospital so I could at least be okay with the idea of going in if I had to. Tim and I both really hate hospitals (one of the reasons we want to have baby at home) but I thought if I at least saw it, then I'd know what to expect and it wouldn't be such a scary unknown. Actually, it was pretty okay. I'd still rather stay at home, but it wasn't as bad as I expected. I'm used to more American style hospitals, which somehow seem bigger and busier and scarier, but this was nice. Quiet, everyone was really friendly, it didn't smell like a hospital, and the rooms were nice and not too impersonal. Even the surgical theatre wasn't too scary. So that made me feel good and I don't feel as worried about having to go in now if I need to because it's not such a scary unknown anymore. They even have a really nice private suite (that you can pay for, she said it was like 100 a night) with a big plush double bed where partners can sleep as well, plus a table and mini fridge to bring in food and drinks in the room, like a hotel! Fancy.

How was everyone's New Year's? Hope you all managed to do something fun. We totally thought about how we really should go out since it will be our last NYE to not have to think about childcare, but just couldn't motivate. We picked up a pizza and sat at home in front of the tv! I took a bubble bath and we just barely managed to stay awake until midnight. We're getting so old now! I felt bad because I was the one who really didn't feel like going out, but my poor husband was almost asleep on the couch by 11:30pm! Hope you guys managed something more fun!

Nope still not in labour Mind, I wish your dream had been a premonition though!

We stayed in for NY but had dh's mum and dad round plus one of their friends, my sis and her bf, then were joined later by a couple of family friends. It was nice but everyone kept going on about pregnancy/labour/weight gain (I've done pretty well so they were complimenting me) but it did get a bit tiresome! I know it's lovely everyone is excited but no one is more impatient for lo's arrival than me and dh!

Oh I know what you mean! After the holidays, I am so darn tired of talking about myself. I saw lots of family and friends I haven't seen much (or at all) since I've been pregnant and all anyone wanted to talk about was me and pregnancy and babies. I just wanted to know what everyone did at the pub the night before and who got really drunk, etc. All I feel like I ever talk about is myself now, which is really awkward. It's also really weird like you say to feel like people are evaluating your body. I generally tend to have pretty positive body image and don't ever think much about weight or appearance (even though I'm a bit overweight). I just generally like how I look even though I try as much as possible to just blend in and not stand out in anyway. But it's weird to suddenly be the one everyone is staring at and commenting on. I know people mean well and like you said, they were mostly compliments, but it was a little unnerving. I've not gained much weight at all even though I eat plenty and as everyone says I'm 'all bump', but it totally made me self-conscious. Like should I have gained more weight than this? What if the baby isn't growing right? Am I not storing enough fat to be healthy? I'm measuring right on track and the midwives are really pleased and obviously everything is going fine, but it did make me feel a little weird for a bit. I guess you can't win, can you?

mrspeanut, are you still pregnant?!

Jess, how is your first cycle of TTC going?

Just thought I would post a quick message before the night ends - I hope everyone is doing well! I have begun my 2nd cycle of Clomid... thinking positive thoughts!

Things are okay - I was positive about this cycle, until I screwed up and forgot my clomid one day... so, I am still hoping things work the way they should. Otherwise, I just want to get on with the next cycle!
