Sorry I've been AWOL.... As you know we moved on saturday. Didn't stop until about 11.30pm Hubby and his dad had to take 2 trips to get everything over to the new house - we had more stuff than we thought!!!
They didn't come back from their 2nd run until about 10.30 so we unloaded the rest of the stuff and then basically went to bed. I got some boxes unpacked in the time hubby and his dad took to go back to the old house and load up the van again.
Kept getting told off by my MIL though for lifting things.
Baby seems fine though, we heard the HB again (finally, after not having heard it for 3 weeks!!! cause the doppler was packed away) on the first morning we woke up in this house (so sunday).
Then sunday we just unpacked and unpacked and unpacked some more all day, didn't stop till about 11pm. Then yesterday we walked to the nearest town to get some things sorted and have a look in the shops. On the way back we dropped into the GP's surgery to get registered. And then got back home at about 5.30pm and didn't stop unpacking more until about 11pm again! Hubby did most of it though I kinda just sat there talking to him, cause I was tired and really couldn't be bothered!
This morning I sorted Lucas' room and our bedroom out whilst hubby was working on the last boxes downstairs. So we're almost done now finally!!
We still want to decorate but we'll have to do that bit by bit, cause of money. We got some pretty cool space bits for Lucas' room yesterday though! Obviously we're going with a space theme in his room.
Anyway, they gave me a phone number for the MW at the GP's yesterday, as they said it was self-referral, but I can't seem to get through. I've rung them about 4 times now, the phone just keeps ringing!! 1 time it gave a busy tone, so I'm guessing they're around... but I don't know why it keeps ringing so long all the other times!! Pain in the ass that they're so hard to reach! Unless they gave me the wrong phone number??
I'm gonna be 16 weeks aswell on friday, so I'm supposed to have an appointment soon!
Anyways, enough chat about me/us. How are you girls???
Wow I'm impressed you guys got that some so fast. I know when we move we'll probably have a room a boxes we won't touch for ages! Well done. Silly that the MW don't have an answering machine! My intake with the midwives was through an email application! Lol
Glad that AF is gone Caitlyn! Onto the next cycle! Have you set anything up with doc before O? Hope so!! Congrats on the Passion Parties. My good friend is a consultant and our childhood friend who now lives in the states is like trainer or manager for them! She gets to go on trips with the company all the time because her sales as astronomical!
We're all done now!! Even hoovered afterwards!
My back is hurting now though!!
Glad it's all done, and can't wait for dinner now, cause hubby is making a nice chicken thingy (either chicken breast wrapped in bacon with cheese in it or chicken breast in a sauce with mushrooms and onions I think it was). And we're having some spinach and ricotta tortellini with it aswell! Bet I'm gonna be stuffed afterwards (usually am if we eat something like this, which isn't very often!)
Glad AF is gone Caitlyn!! Do you reckon you'll be able to get better timed donations this month?? At least you were able to keep doing your exercise the past month!
I kinda got discouraged with the exercise. And I am going to wait one more month to talk to the doctor's. The donor should be around in theory... I guess we will see lol. He is gone this weekend but I am hoping he is around the week after. I'm getting fed up Enough about boring me though.
Glad you did so much unpacking and got 'er done, Ella I'm like Talia... heck, we still have a basement of unpacked boxes.
Well hopefully next week will be opportune for many donations! I think it's good to do one more cycle and see if it was maybe a temporary thing before you see the doc! And here! Finally got a decent bump pic in the dress I'm wearing to a wedding this sat! And you can see my gross elbow is healing up a bit!
And hopefully you, Caitlyn, can get some donations in around O-time this time!!
We've lived in a house that had been half packed away for the past.....uhm.... 9 months or so, so we're happy that we can finally have everything out again! There are some boxes that have been stuffed under the stairs in a cupboard, cause they've just got rubbish in it!
At the moment we're deciding on paint colours and had a look through some shops on what we want to buy to decorate the house. Just got some nice bits for Lucas' room. His room is gonna be a space-theme, bought him a rocket shaped cushion, there are matching curtains and matching bedding which we still want to get (they're quite expensive though, mainly the curtains!) Then we bought him a lampshade with some robots and rockets and stars on it and a little rocket nameplate for his door. And we got some glow in the dark stickers, shaped like moon, stars and planets to put on the wall! Can't wait for his room to be done, it'll look so nice!
And we're going with a purple colour for our bedroom, for which we only really need to paint 1 wall, buy an ottoman (nice purple one) and put some shelves up. Possibly buy a chest of drawers or something like that at some point, but that's not too urgent at the moment.
And for the living room we're going with a nice greeny colour on 1 of the walls and we've already got some green ornaments to go with it and we want to buy some curtains (with matching cushions aswell). Can't wait till it's all done, cause it'll look really nice and we've never actually been able to do any of our houses up, as we knew we wouldn't be there for very long and we had to return it in the same state (colour wise) so we never bothered!
Yay I love starting fresh and picking things out that are your own! Exciting!
Speaking of which we might be doing the same sooner rather than later. We're going to go look at a house my parents put an offer on and if we like it they'll sign and sell the place we're in now. After some renos and some time to save a bit more we'll buy it from them! Could be out of here pretty soon! It's a very spur of the moment thing so we're still in shock but with the renters ( we have renters in the basement) lease up in nov and baby on the way there's no time to lose!
Ella, that sounds awesome. Glad you're making it a home And I love the space theme, that is awesome! My little sister's room will probably be space themed. Are you going to do some real constellations?
Talia! Look at that baby belly!! And I am so excited for your possible house acquiring! Lol.
