Lintu I only started back at work two weeks ago and it has been so difficult to concentrate and get motivated! Am going to have to try to do some now as I'm massively behind

In fact, I only packed all of my maternity stuff away about 8 weeks ago so that's all going to have to come down from the loft fairly soon.

We both think that we are having a girl, although I think it would be lovely for my son if we had another little boy as there will only be 18 months between them. We also have loads of boys clothes that have barely been worn! I bought far too much last time. I know I will lose all self-control if we have a girl though and buy lots of pretty outfits.

Hey girls, I'm in! I'm 28 and Due 2nd January with my second. I have a Christmas Day boy already so hoping for a New Years baby next

Getting married in December and didn't plan to be 8 months pregnant but oh well! I'll have to buy another dress I guess!

We'll def be finding out the sex, can't wait to tell my son he's having a brother or sister

I think we have the best time to be pregnant as we have summer in second tri and can cosy up in third when we're all big rather than sweat. Then babies are born in winter and we
Can snuggle up then when they're 6 months old it's summer

Welcome ocean! Congratulations!!!

Ugh, I wish we had cooler weather here as I usually get stuck wearing compression stockings during pregnancy but here I am in Bangkok. Nowhere to hide! It only gets hot, hotter and crazy hot

Will have to have piles of stuff shipped here from home (Canada) as we didn't really expect to have a baby while being posted. But the post got extended...

I'll probably wait until the 12 week scan to tell the family and the rest of the world. It's easier since I don't see them though.

I'm self-employed at the moment to thankfully, I can tailor contract around what I can do.

Had a rough day with my kiddos. Going to be early

Welcome to the club Ocean_pearl. I've updated the front page with your details. Good luck with the dress shopping... I started dress shopping three months after my son was born and I must say it was hard. At least when you're pregnant you have a reason to be bigger. I think it's almost better to get married then rather than soon after you've given birth when you can't blame your weight on your bump. Dress fittings are the most challenging when you find your shape changes every time you go for one. My dress ended up being altered about 10 times in the end!

Yay! Thanks for making an official thread! I love the name you picked, too. Even though I'm in Southern California and we don't get snow here! I still love it!

Welcome to all the new ladies! It's so exciting!

As for telling my family I don't intend to wait. I've told my mom last night, and we plan on telling my husbands family this Tuesday.

With my last pregnancy I went 8 days overdue, I'm hoping that happens again so I have a baby even farther into January! I dread having a baby around Christmas. A close family friend has a son that was born on Christmas Eve, and he just got his first birthday party last year for his 13th birthday. The poor kid!

I'm afraid when I go in for my scan my doctor will tell me I'm farther along than I think, but inside I know it can't be. When I tested last weekend the line was BARELY visible.

Mushy I knew the exact date of conception with my last pregnancy as we had IVF. This gave a DD of 10th July. When I had my 12 week scan they moved my DD to 6th July. After a bit of complaining by me I got it moved back to the 10th. In the event, DS didn't arrive until 23rd July, 17 days after the predicted scan DD and 13 days after the correct DD. I am going to make sure they stick to my IVF DD this time round rather than trying to bring it forward based on the scan as otherwise the pressure to induce should you go over is massive. I ended up with an emergency induction last time as there was grade II meconium in my waters when they broke and it was an experience I never want to repeat. I was so traumatised by the whole thing I had quite bad baby blues for a month or two afterwards. It was very different to the home birth using the hypnobirthing method that I had planned
