    I forgot to say, I did get signed off in the end, which is great since there's no way I could've managed much longer. Only two weeks, but at least now I can start taking things at my own pace.

    Grich, is there a chance that you could be ahead? :) yay for a good appointment!

    JDH, what are you planning to buy? :)

    I see the MFM tomorrow and I am so excited for another scan! :happydance:
    Then the day after that I see my OB for my 24 week appointment.
    Ladies, the third tri just keeps getting closer! Woohoo!
    Are you all feeling easily fatigued lately? Just making dinner exhausts me.

    I have not been that tired I think that will come soon though. I don't think that it is possible that I am further along because I had an ultrasound when I was 5 weeks along and all you could see was an empty sac so I think they are pretty sure with the dates. I'm just hoping that mine already had its growth spirt and that's why it's measuring ahead ��

    So I went yesterday and got my moses basket, ordered cot (pick up Sunday!), chose and paid for pram and car seat, (pick up in October), cot bedding - bumper, sheets, etc, steriliser, bottles, baby monitor, a cute little babygro, a bath box, some nappies and a nappy bin! :happydance:

    Still got some things to buy but feel happier that i've made a start.

    Baby was so active this morning, I just sat and watched my belly move for hours :cloud9: So in love already.

    Also my invitations for my baby shower came this morning, they're lovely. Having it at 32 weeks on 7th September. That's not actually that far off which is scary but cool! :baby:

    How is everyone else?? :hugs:

    Wow jdh you are organised! I am lucky I got given a massive nappy cake when I gave birth as I hadnt even bought nappies yet!

    Storked I was feeling quite tired but have started taking iron which has helped a lot. In saying that its 8.50pm over here and I am ready for bed...

    Grich hope baby doesnt get too massive! Did they take the measurement from measuring your fundal height or from measuring baby on ultrasound?

    Everything is good over here. Me and dh have stopped talking about baby names now because we cant agree on anything, but secretly I am thinking we will name her Sienna :shhh:

    I hope all is well, grich. Just remember that baby's position, amount of water and size of placenta can all affect fundal measurements. Neither they nor ultrasounds are terribly accurate. If there's nothing underlying, our bodies don't tend to grow babies we can't birth. :)

    I'm exhausted lately. SPD ever present. And I nearly passed out in a queue in the shops today - didnt realise I was at that stage already. Hubby had to come and pay while I sat down.

    Fundal height so I'm not to sure if that's accurate or not.

    Manda, take it easy :-/

    Steph, thinking that you will wear DH down on names? :) good luck!

    Grich, not too sure of the accuracy of the fundal measurements. Sorry. For not knowing more!

    JDH, sounds like a wonderful start! Shopping for baby and seeing them move is just amazing :)

    Well I saw the MFM today and my girl looks great! She was head down and we couldn't see her face today but she was crossing her feet and shaking her fist at the screen at one point. Love it! And I finally managed to capture a kick on video for my DH. Just one though since all movement ceases when I film lol.
    I tire easily and I am so hungry all the time.

    grich - some babies have growth spurts at different times too, so yours may not have one for a while, it should even out over the next weeks though. Or you may be further along, who knows in the weird and wonderful world of pregnancy lol

    Happy V-day anchor!

    Manda hope you are feeling better...

    Storked , yes I am hoping I will wear dh down on names. Afterall, he hasnt put that much effort into finding a name, and no effort into growing this baby! If we cant agree i think I should get more say:smug:

    I realize I'm a limitless behind in the group due my absence from babyandbump but I love this forum & thought I'd go ahead and jump on in anyway!

    DH & I spent over 2 years TTC, got a BFP on our 6th round of clomid but sadly discovered a MMC June 12,2012 @ 11 weeks.

    We started seeing a team of amazing specialists & after many months of lots of testing we did our first injectable treatment cycle (femera, follistim, trigger w/ timed intercourse) in February & got a BFP !!! Such a great surprise!

    Our baby girl is doing wonderfully & is expected to arrive November 11th ! She'll actually be born in Sicily due to DH being military & receiving orders there. We've been visiting with family one final time & our flight leaves Tuesday !!!

    Steph, you definitely get more say! My husband always says that the final word is mine as I am The Creator lol.

    Aak, welcome and congratulations on your rainbow! And how exciting to be going to Sicily- eat something tasty for me :)

    Lovely bump! I'll have to see if I have a recent one.

    My 3 year old's been unwell. And it's hot today. Now I'm home, he's out of private nursery and home with me. He's due to start school nursery in September. I'm sort of excited for him!
