Hi everyone! Pink thank you so much for starting the thread. I've been wondering how everyone is doing. It's been so nice reading up on where you guys are at. Things are good here. I'm feeling pretty great overall and, like all of you, trying to get my head around stuff we need. I bought a few things on ebay- crib, change table, and pram and got amazing deals. We loved the Stokke stuff but it was insanely expensive in the shop- so we just bought used stuff from rich people who were happy to get it out of their homes. :-)
We found out that we're having a boy, but we aren't telling anyone. I just don't feel like getting bombarded with blue stuff. I sort of thought I was having a girl, so it took a week or so to get my head around the idea of a boy, but I'm all onboard now.
Glad to be in touch!!

Hey smurfing good to see you and hear that you're doing well... I had a sick week last week and i think i've figured it out that it was less MS and more indigestion and i've got to lay off the chilli otherwise i'll feel rotten the next day. quite difficult for me as i tend to add chilli to everything! oh well you do what you have to right?!

I had my scan on monday and we also decided to find out what we're having and its a boy and a girl! which i'm very happy about, i think for them it probably would have been better if they had been the same sex but i was just so happy to see that everything was fine in there and so far all limbs etc are present and accounted for, huge relief!

x

Wow Pink that is amazing! Congratulations!!
A boy and girl will be so nice- it will be fun choosing names!
How's everyone going with the names, by the way?
We thought we had some ideas but since it took us so long to get pregnant, the names we originally liked don't seem so great anymore. i think we're over them. LOL now, we just need a new one.
I feel embarassed to say, but one thing I'm really struggling with is being ok with the weight gain. I know that the body needs fat stores and I promised I would love my pregnant body (and I mostly do) but sometimes when I get a look at my but in the mirror I really have to take some deep breaths (and my boobs have grown so much they almost scare me LOL).

I know what you mean, some of my favourites we can't use as it doesn't go with our surname or the OH has point blank said no! we've got a couple that we like, but I'm not going to definitely decide on anything until they're here. Cos I think you need to look at the baby and see if the name suits it, so I'm going to have a few names that are contenders!!

Don't be embarrassed smurfing I don't buy into this whole everyone must love pregnancy especially if you've been trying as long as we have. To be honest I think it sucks, so far all day nausea, loose stools (sorry tmi!) and farts that could win an Olympic gold! Isn't endearing me to the whole process! I'm not so fussed with the weight gaining mine is I really don't like my belly button, was always an outy and now it looks weird! and it's sensitive, god knows what it's going to look like when I get bigger! So it kind of makes me not like looking at my bump which is a shame, we're women always critical of our bodies so I think it's only natural x

well I'm glad I'm not the only one having mixed feelings about my body. I mostly love the experience- but some days if I catch a good long look at my butt I have to take deep breaths and say "the extra fat stores are for the baby and will be necessary for breast feeding". LOL
Funny you mentioned the farts. My DH was saying that the baby will be able to recognize the sound of farts before he recognizes our voices since he hears them so often! TMI
I also have an outie pink and it is SO sensitive. The other day our friends 3-year old put his finger right into the button and I almost barfed.
I'm trying not to stress now that my in laws have arrived (remember way back I mentioned that they decided to come for 4 MONTHS- well they are here now). Thankfully they have gotten their own apartment for the duration and are just with us for the first week. But I still find it crazy- and their apartment is only a block away. Yikes.

Smurf - the comment your DH made, made me laugh! that will be highly true in our house aswell!
and just reading that comment about the 3 year old made me want to gag! i'm glad i'm not the only one with a sensitive belly button area...whats even more disturbing recently is when i'm sitting or lying down, there has been activity underneath the area, causing my belly button to go in and out! fascinating to watch but really disturbing aswell!!

Good luck with the inlaws! at least once they aren't with you anymore, if it all gets too much you can pretend you're not in!

Drsquid that didn't sound good... i sometimes forget that i'm pregnant and push myself a bit too much and then two little people let me know about it afterwards! Your nearly 28weeks! Ooo thats exciting, how big are you? i feel massive already and am nervous about how big i'll end up and whether i'll look like tweedle dum!

Got a few bits and bobs from my sisters over the weekend, so feel at least like i'm starting to prepare. I've just sent off to the 'Twin course' at my local hospital, so hoping they've got room and we'll be able to do the tour in Jan sometime.
