Happy belated birthday Bernie and I can't believe you're having Jameson on Monday!!!! It's amazing that our first rainbow is joining us already.
Hopie sorry this wasn't your month...Baby dust for you next month! Although they can be a pain and take away from the spontaneity I found temping and opk's really helpful. Without them I probably would have missed my window because I didn't ovulate until day 21 the cycle I conceived Thomas.
Blu it is getting so close for you too!! How are the renos coming?
How are you Jaspie?
We had Thomas's ultrasound yesterday but it was a bit of a bust. The machine was *ancient* so the images were grainy and he was almost unrecognizable as a baby. It was literally a close encounter of the blurred kind. To top it off they charged us $13 for 4 photos, 2 of which are so badly blurred you can't even make out what they are.
The sonographer also wouldn't tell us anything, so I'll have to wait until Monday to discuss the results with my midwife. We did get to see the heartbeat and Thomas moving on screen though.
Hope everyone has nice weekend plans. It's down to crunch time for our renos so DH and his friend will be tearing out carpet and moving furniture all weekend while I clean and pack boxes.
Hey Fit, so sorry the scan was a letdown, we had a scan with DS at 37 weeks as the midwife thought he was breech and all we saw was a mass of arms and legs lol.
We had the decorator back on Thursday so the nursery is all painted and were going to order the carpet this morning 😁 I'm off work on Wednesday so hoping they can fit it then and I can sort the rest of the room by next week. We are reusing the cot, wardrobe and changer we had when DS was a baby so that's cut the cost hugely, we just need a new mattress and I've bought new decor. I'll be glad to have it ready now though and I've also started packing my hospital bag.
Were off to a Christmas market tomorrow so hoping to stock up on some goodies for the festive season.
Bernie I'm so excited for Monday for you, hope you have a great birthday?
Hopie, I have everything crossed for next cycle for you, it WILL happen soon I know it. I never temped or anything so can't advice with that but Fit may have a good point. How are you feeling?
Jaspie how's plans with the new house coming along? Can't believe you're very nearly in 3rd tri!
Hope you all have a great weekend.
Ps I'm going to have to get email adds for you girls as my tablet won't let me post pics so I can mail you pics of baby when he arrives xx
Eeek Bernie 2 more sleeps! I can't believe it! How are you feeling?
Fit sorry the scan was so blurry! Can't believe they had the cheek to charge you for pics too when they are clearly impossible to see. Hope you have a successful weekend sorting the house out.
Hopie I agree with fit, temping and opks taught me so much about my cycle and ensures you don't miss your window, your timing could be off so if you nail that down you have a much higher chance especially as it happened quickly before. Opks are super easy to use if you don't want the commitment of temping every day. Used together though the opks tell you when you're ovulating and the temping confirms you have actually ovulated so you can be sure your timing is spot on. Fingers crossed for you next cycle!!
Blu sounds like the nursery is well underway! Can't believe you're next!! Definitely we need to swap emails so we can see pictures of baby Blu! How many weeks do you have left?
I can't believe I'm almost in 3rd tri either!! Time is going so fast. We've been really productive over the last few days and chosen a sofa and chair set for the lounge, ordered our bed and chosen our buggy. Seen some nice cots and nursery furniture on Ikea website too. Really can't wait to just get in there now and start making it our home and getting the nursery ready.
Hope you all have a great weekend, we're going to do some packing and I'm going to make a cake. Still got some pumpkin puree in the freezer so going to make spiced pumpkin bread mmmm. I can pretend that it sort of isn't as naughty as a regular cake 😂
Pumpkin bread sounds amazing please send some my way?!! Ha. We sorted the carpet yesterday and its being fitted on Tuesday so my day off on Wednesday will be spent organising the nursery ☺
Sounds like you're organised now too and IKEA have some fab stuff in at the moment.
Looking forward to the Christmas market today xx
Bernie can't believe it's your big day!! Eek! So excited for you and know you'll do great! Can't wait to hear about Baby Jameson joining the world.
That's great about the new furniture Jaspie, new stuff is the best! And pumpkin bread, mmm. I got some pumpkin spiced Greek yogurt from the grocery store. OMG. SO delicious. When do you move to your new house?
Blu that's great that the decorating is going so well and that you're close to getting the nursery squared away. So close for you too! Yes we'll definitely have to exchange emails, I can't wait to "meet" Baby Blu! Hope the Christmas market is nice - I haven't even begun to think of Xmas shopping, my brain has been so occupied with renos.
Got our carpet ripped out this weekend, flooring is going to be done next weekend - finally! Our house will look so nice and then we can finally get Thomas's nursery set up. 50 days till Thomas's due date!
Hi friends! Bernie- we are all anxiously awaiting your news. I had Wednesday in my mind, but I see from the girl's posts above, you were going to be induced on Monday. Thinking of you!
Fit- sorry the scan images were so blurry but just so great you saw him moving all around! You guys sure have gotten a lot of nursery work done. Almost just 45 days to go! Funny you mentioned that pumpkin greek yogurt- I was going to buy it the other day..now that you say it is so good, I will.
Jaspie- I had leftover puree and made pumpkin bread too! Yes, it is much healthier than real cake. Nice job on getting so much furniture taken care of for your new home, Jaspie! I love the way you guys in UK call a stroller, a buggy. I'm going to take up that term!
Thank you both for the tips on temping, etc. I should be doing it. This month's window is out since it is this week and I have felt too sick to even look at DF! My stomach has been terrible for days. (ever since I hate half a pumpkin loaf!) Plus we have been arguing.. 5 fights the past 10 days. Not good.
Blu- hope you got your Christmas shopping done early at the market? Good to know IKEA has some good stuff. We still need to get furniture.. I was looking on there last year for baby furniture and it sure is much more affordable than anywhere else.
Nice job being just about done with the nursery! Yes, we definitely have to exchange e-mails so can see baby Blu photos.
It is dark, dreary November weather here. Think I got spoiled by 7 months of sun and warm temps. I've been feeling rather down, saw therapist but she sorta made me feel worse. ? I was like - why am I paying so much for this? I don't know if I am better just sorting out on my own. Sure once I feel better and DF and I get along better I will cheer up.. Just a bad week.
Anyway, looking forward to Bernie's news and all your happy updates! Take good care!
Hi Ladies, how are we all? I cant wait to hear Bernies news!! Baby must be here by now.
All is good here, bump is feeling huge and heavy and im rocking swollen ankles! The nursery is almost done, just waiting for hubby to put the sides on the cot then we can buy a mattress and make the cot up, I just need some wall art to finish it off. Ive only got 2 weeks left at work now and im definitely feeling like I could do with a break now.
Jaspie hows that bump coming on? Not long til moving day now, bet youre excited.
Hopie sorry you think youre out this month, hopefully its a xmas rainbow for you. The weather is crap here too.
Fit hows baby T doing? Wont be long now eeeeekkkkk xx
Glad all is great, Blu! I bet you are ready for the work break. Just 2 more weeks..who-hooo! Does keeping your feet elevated high help the swollen ankles?
Yes- hopefully we hear from Bernie soon. She was having a c-section, right? Which means extra days in the hospital to rest, so hopefully she is back home with baby this weekend. Can't wait to hear!!
Fit and Jaspie- hope you're having great weekends.
Yes Blu..this month is out. I don't have any desire to even look at DF let alone anything else. lol
The good thing about not being pg is my favorite holiday is on Wed and I am blessed to have my mom cook her famous turkey and stuffing for us! See, when i was pg I was so incredibly nauseous, I couldn't eat for over 2 weeks! Heck, I couldn't even drink water. Need to look on the bright side of things, huh? Have a great and restful weekend!
Hi ladies! Hope everyone is well!
I've had a very busy weekend at my best friends hen do! Had a great time but shattered now! We went to a comedy club Friday night then a club then go karting yesterday and I just watched, and then the Adonis cabaret show last night. We went to a club after but I stayed like 30 mins and then me and my pregnant friend left at about 10.30 We're in a hotel and I can't wait to go down for breakfast I have woken up starving! Been suffering bad with the heartburn this weekend, if I'm not drinking gavisvon I'm chewing rennies I hope you can't OD on heartburn meds!
Ordered the buggy on Friday and bought a new sofa for the new house. Moving in on Friday now so LOTS to do this week!
Bernie I can't wait for your news! Hope everything went well and you're recovering well and settling into life as 3!
Hopie I could eat a thanksgiving dinner right now! Enjoy it, you never know you could be pregnant by Christmas again!
Blu 2 weeks left in work I'm so excited for you! Hope it goes quickly for you and how exciting the nursery is pretty much ready.
Fit hope all is good! You're not far behind Blu!
