Jamie, glad midwife went well (sorry its late!) I'm not sure, it might have been too many if that makes sense... They were very rich and yummy thou!
Wrighty you are correct, the majority of anything (in this case a baby) is average. Think about bmi for a sec as everyone understands that. Below 17 your seriously underweight and therefore in the small 5th percentile 18-20 is under weight but that's a big chunk of the population therefore that's about 11th-25th percentile. Now the average bmi is 20-25 that's about 50% of the population therefore this is the 25th - 75th percentile. About 20% are over weight with a bmi of 25-30 so that's 76th-95th percentile, then finally you've got those who are dangerously obese with bmi of more than 30 so that's 96th-100th percentile!
With your baby measuring between 50th and 90th percentile, that means at the lower level she falls in the average size, but if she continues to grow at current rates, she's going to be in the small proportion who are large!
Hi ladies, anyone else suffering from insomnia? I can't remember what a full nights sleep is. Also, I'm ruining hubby's sleep too. He's on days for a change and when I do sleep (on hour chunks) I've been snoring my head off and waking him too! I suppose it's good practise, but I'd love some
Hey ladies how is everyone doing? Hope your all ok.
Sorry I've been AWOL I literally have nothing to report. Apart from being cranky and whingey ha. Just counting down the days now!
Harley I haven't had a full nights sleep in months! My mum just told me to get used to it. If it's not through lack of being able to it was because I had to get up and pee! I think later in when baby gets heavier they put so much pressure on you it's quiet uncomfy. I find drinking warm milk before bed helps (with heartburn too) but then I wake up to pee! Can't win ha xxx
Harley - yep im struggling too. It doesnt help having to get up 3-4 times a night to pee but i guess that peanut preparing me lol. x
Jamie - Im same as you not much to report lol sorry to hear you are not sleeping well either x
Well like i said nothing really to report bump is getting bigger and more and more in the way lol starting to have Braxton hicks and they seem to make me really really wanna pee even if ive only just been lol not sure if thats normal. Looking forward to my long weekend away starting Thursday going to Ireland on a plane. My first time ever flying lol. OH dad is having to take us to the airport as OHs car has boken down and we havent managed to get it fixed yet still not totally sure what is wrong with it its definitly something electrical and its possible the cam sensor or crack sensor need a specialist to come and have a look for us :/
Hope you're all well..... Glad baby is well Wrighty. I feel sad for you, Harley & Jamie that you're not getting much sleep so I'm going to make the most of mine... Sorry to rub it in.... You can get your revenge when your bundles are here and I'm like a roly-poly xxxx
How are you Gemz & sugar? Xxx
I had my scan today & I'm 8 weeks & 1 day, little bean looks normal with a good heartbeat. So we're delighted & shocked that it's tripled in size... Wonder if that's the reason why I'm so fat?! Lol roll on 12 weeks so we can tell everyone.
I'm feeling ok but having slight nausea before lunch so feel like I need to eat more to get through it but feeling blessed little bean is good & I'm not too poorly.
Janey glad your scan went well, we were 7ish weeks with ours and it's amazing the size of your little one.
As for sickness I found eating smaller and more often helped a little. But I got unlucky and had really bad ms and HG. So not much else helped ha. X
Hi girls, sorry I've been AWOL! I've been mad busy at work and building works going on at home so been on randomly!
Everything's fine with me, other than my sickness decided to come back for a few days, I'm super shopped out too! Mums taking me to krakow next week as a treat for my birthday last month, so will be really nice to spend a few days quality time with her - knowing that come the new year I won't be able to have that luxury!
Oh this will make you laugh. Hubby and I were talking the other night about trying to get john bishop tickets for his tour next year. Hubby agreed that it would be awesome, and it said we'd need a baby sitter. There was total silence down the phone as if it was an alien concept, when I pointed out that baby would be here then, it was like the penny dropped after some silence.... Oh yeahhhh he said. Couldn't stop laughing! Ona bright note I felt baby kick when my hand was on my belly, so hoping hubby will have that experience AT&T he weekend!
It seems that we are all having trouble sleeping! I'm waking up in the middle of the night to pee, but the other night I woke up and had terrible pains in my leg - shooting pains / pins and needle type. Wasn't pleasant at all. Have any of you got a maternity pillow? Seems to be helping me a bit, but does take a good chunk of the bed over!
Janey, I had pretty bad sickness back then too. Int he end the doctor gave me anti sickness tablets so they really helped too plus changing eating habits - smaller sizes more often. If it doesn't shift see the doctor! I had my scan at 6 weeks and baby was measuring a few days behind. When we got to 12 weeks the difference was amazing - plus again at 20.
Wrighty, as your past 20 weeks, depending onthe airline they may be funny with you. I've of gone the doctors to get a note to say I'm fit to fly aaa I'm going with Ryanair and their always little sods. Make sure you were those rather attractive flight socks to prevent DVT, move around the plane when you can too. I did this at 13 weeks, so about to experience it again. Most of all have wonderful time and make the most of the break before these things becomeS a thing of the past at least for a while
Jamie / Harley other than lack of sleep how are you both?
Jamie don't worry about your rant! I'm not sleeping, but doesn't appear as bad as you. I went to the body shop and spent 19 quid on bubble bath and some night spray which contains jujube and camomile called deep sleep and I've finally slept - might be worth a try? I'd not you've got less than 12 days to go, so your nearly there
Ooooh, I'm really excited for you Jamie, hopefully it won't be long until you get to meet your little lady
I'm not sleeping either, hubby is back on nights, so at least I won't be disturbing him! I ended up sobbing my heart out at about 5 this morning cos I was so overtired lol.
We spent the weekend buying wardrobe, chest of drawers etc and having carpet fitted up the stairs, the landing and the nursery. We've finished painting the nursery pale blue and put up clouds and a tatty teddy hot air balloon light shade, so cute. Just have the wooden aeroplane mobile to put up and get the rocking chair from mum's, so excited! Going to wash all the baby clothes and bedding this week and maybe pack the baby's hospital bag if I'm feeling organised .
