Wendy, Aw bless your hubby, he is so sweet! I didn't think I would be able to wait for my first scan but it went really quick! Hang in there. Hope your feeling ok x
Carly, we don't have any names picked as of yet, we were planning on waiting until we new the sex of her. We haven't discussed it any further as we have been so busy with DIY recently. We have the middle name picked out as she is going to be named after Gavins mum. I will post up the 3d scan pics when I get it all sorted out for you all to see. Sorry you have had a bit of a cry, if it makes you feel better I had a little cry over curtains I was sewing
Hey rachael, hope the job is going well
Well just a quick one from me as I'm shattered from sewing annoying curtains! Time for cuddles with the hubby. Hope you have all had a good night x
Wendy, my birthday is December 27th A Christmas birthday isn't so terrible.
Carly, we're team by choice. There aren't many surprises in life and I'm so looking forward to finding out for ourselves what we're having. . Or I guess it will be what we had
We have names picked out either way though. Could only settle on one boys name though so if it's a boy it had better suit him. We have a top pick girls name and two backup names if a girl just doesn't seem to go with our top name.
And our house is brick inside so there will be nonpainting of the nursery . Oh well.
Carly Really? I can't find anything for boys, do share. The only nursery things I have found are pirates or aliens and I think they are a bit much for a baby, I would find them scary at a young age. The other option is cars but i'm not sure about that. For girls I will definitely have Winnie the Pooh, Me to You or Minnie Mouse. I liked Hello Kitty too but I thought it was more for an older girl. I can't wait to find out what i'm having so I can properly choose! What name did you choose for a girl in the end? I know you were looking for a name beginning with A weren't you? I'm sorry about your hubby going away, it will get harder the further along you are. How long is he gone for? I'm not sure about the pillows, I'm hoping I wont need one but we shall see what happens x
Rachael hun! Lovely to have you with us. How's things going with you? You enjoying the new job? x
Emma Ugh I wish it was going quick for me but it's dragging! I think i've talked hubby out of early scan, I think it would be lovely to have but if something wasn't right I think I would have one hundred and one questions to ask and the person doing it wouldn't be my doctor so I guess I am just going to try and hold off till the 12 weeks. Just wish it was now! How's the renovations going? Hopefully everything is about done and you can start relaxing x
Nat Ooh so you may have baby on your birthday! How nice would that be! It's going to be such a special time of year for you. Aww that's a shame you can't decorate the nursery but i'm sure you can get it looking lovely by hanging some pictures and things. How's things going on the job front? x
Well i'm keeping not too bad! I get really tired after work and by 4pm my back is killing me but symptom wise i'm doing better than most! I feel sicky in the morning but haven't actually been sick yet so fingers cross it will continue like that! I told my boss my news as I thought it only fair to give as much warning as I can that I will be off for the majority of next year and he was actually really happy for me. He knew what i'd been going through with the pcos tests so seemed happy I got my wish of a natural bfp
Well I best get on with some work, talk to you all later x
Awww this is nice!!
Hello, im Natasha and im 23 years old (with 1 anniversary, i refuse to be older than 23 lol) I have a 2year old son called Auron (who was not planned, but couldn't imagine my life without him) and im due November 5th with another boy, we're calling Elyjah. We decided to try for another baby in feb (after coming back from visiting my home town) and i had a positive test March 3rd (date's given i was already pregnant before we decided to start trying) so i guess you could say we're either uber fertile, or just meant to have children together! I've been with my fiancÚ for 4 years next month, and have a massive love for the joker, chocolate and Tim Burton films
Natasha! Congratulations.. Not long left for you now!! Welcome to the thread
Wendypops- I thought that mine was dragging at first as I was waiting for appointments and everything but believe me it picks up lol! Things are nearly sorted in the house.. well for now!! The carpet goes down on Friday so I cant wait to have normality back at home!! Fingers crossed your sickness doesnt get any worse for you! I think it is handy to tell your boss as if you do get bad with your morning sickness or need anything then he is aware of it all and can understand.
Natalie- I really dont know with names as there are so many girls names that are so adorable! I am sure that your nursery will look fab once you have finished with it. You are so creative and inventive so you dont need to worry about painting
Well I have a short day ahead of me in work and then home to more DIY, then a half day tomorrow due to my physio and then thats me for the weekend!! I cant wait!
Hi Natasha! Welcome to the thread Haha I like that! I never wanted to be older than 21 but that didn't exactly go to plan Aww what lovely names for your boys, quite unusual spellings for both. It's nice to be a bit different x
Emma Good to hear everything is coming together. How is your back? You decided what theme to decorate your nursery or are you going for neutrals? x
Well ladies, none of you warned me that I was going to be so hormonal this early on I was sitting in the toilets at work crying for five minutes this afternoon cause my work was just pissing me off. I have never been like that before! And believe me, my work pisses me off at the best of times lol. I guess it's all part of being preggers x
Wendy - your hormones will be all over There I warned you
Work is ok. We're in training currently and to be honest most of what we have covered could have been done in about half the time or even less. Quite boring really
As for symptoms I seem to be really lucky, just tired and I have sore boobs. OH commented on the size of my nipples (something along of the lines of looking like JCB starter buttons ) I get the odd bit of nausea, but I do get cravings and food aversions

Hey Rachael glad you are feeling well and work is going ok.
Emma- I wish I had the skill to sew anything. You still have plenty of time to pick the perfect name. To be honest when I first joined and started talking to you I thought Pippin was actually going to be the babies name. I cant wait to see the 3d pics!!
Nat- Brick sounds beautiful. I am sure your nursery will be lovely.
Wendy- Well I have a few ideas. Gray elephants with white background, Mickey, or Peter Pan. I LOVED Peter Pan and Tinkerbell when I was younger and still collect Tinkerbell things and have a Tinkerbell tattoo. But we have decided to do a neutral nursery sooo we are going to either do winnie the pooh or just light brown, green, and yellow. I agree that Hello Kitty is for an older girl. We still cant agree on a middle name for a girl. IF we have a girl her first name will be Kensi for sure. I have fallen in love with the name Leigh but he doesn't like it at all. So we are back at the drawing board. I am glad things went well with your boss, and your feeling good!!
Hi Natasha-Welcome. I bet you cant wait for november to see your little man. I also love Tim Burton films, which is your favorite?
Well Mike left on Tuesday morning and he will be back on Friday afternoon. His birthday is on the 25th so I wanted to surprise him with his favorite ice cream cake when he gets home. He called me yesterday to tell me he bought me a present. He is such a goof. He is going to his best friends tomorrow to visit their new baby again and have a birthday dinner. Tomorrow I am determined to get my errands done and my school work done. So hopefully I get some motivation between now and then. Hope you ladies have a great day!!! Talk soon!!
Thanx for the warm welcome everyone!! I see some of you aren't very far along yet, so glad that part's over and done with, felt constantly sick until i hit week 12 with both pregnancy's!! 2nd tri was deff my favourite, still able to sleep and be generally comfortable and no sick feeling's with glowing skin and the start of looking pregnant!! Something for you to look forward too
And for the time being, as uncomfortable as i am, im quite happily going from day to day. On one hand yes im exited to meet little dude and have cuddles, but on other hand it means christmas is coming, and i haven't started shopping for it yet!! Have any of you started, or like me slightly dreading??
mavsprtynpink Favourite..... tricky!! There's soooooo many to choose from!! I can't choose one!! I love batman returns (selena's breakdown give's me shivers every time i watch it!) edward scissorhands (also a massive johnny depp fan!) and of course the nightmare before christmas!! Can't choose one from those 3, it's too hard >.<
What about you, have you any particular favourite's?
Location: Richmond KY. Originally from Chicago IL.
Natasha- Nightmare before christmas is probably all time favorite. It is hard not to LOVE Johnny Depp though. There is this really awesome keychain at the disney store of nightmare before christmas and everytime i see it I have to put it back because its soooo heavy.
Hey ladies!!! So obviously by my ticker I I am not far into my second trimester but I am showing WIDE if you know what I mean so I just look fat not pregnant atleast to me. And I am only 5 foot tall so that doesn't help my case. Just starting to feel a little self consious. I have been trying to walk at least 4-5 times a week so I dont grow HUGE and I have actually lost weight since getting pregnant, but I still feel huge. Any ideas?? My husband and I have been out and I have seen women give me looks, trying to figure out if I am pregnant or just fat. My husband is a very fit man, so I think they wonder like hmmmmm? I dont know I am from Chicago and you just grow up thinking everyone is judging you. Now that I live in Kentucky its hard to not think that way. I know people in the south are more kind or so I have heard, but when you spend your whole life wary of people you wonder. Sorry for the ramble, just had to get some thoughts out.
