Only a small entry as not much to update on but wanted to mention i think there was more movement this evening. I was sitting at the computer about 30mins ago and felt those flicks again - 3 seperate ones! Fingers crossed this is it......im pretty sure on this one as its definately not gas. I guess time will tell!
Nearly half way there, cant believe that ill be 5 months next week!! I am loving pregnancy! I had a dream last night we had a baby girl and i was feeding her and settling her in her cot, i woke with such a warm feeling!!
Finished the rest of the border off last night, so thats all the major stuff done now, just little bits to do.
I bought 2 very expensive maternity tops off the internet the other night and they arrived today, one i dont like as its no where as nice as the pic makes out and the other is slightly too big so i am sending them back and have ordered 2 replacements and one more as they have a sale on lol. They arent hugely dressy but are very smart and will last throughout the rest of my pregnancy.
Im still feeling more of those flicks.....not so much last night but the other night there were quite a few when i went on the computer and when i went to bed. Not noticed any this evening but im at work so not really sitiing quietly to notice. I cant wait til this shift has finished.
Went shopping today with mum to order the pram but the silly shop assistants spent ages looking on their system unable to find the colour we wanted. So we gave up and im going to try and order tomorrow from somewhere else. This is the one we are having:
Hopefully the place im going to ring will have that colour in stock (bf chose it!) or will will have to have the black.
My nursing chair arrived on Friday, put that together and put it in the room, its really finished it off nicely!
Didnt feel many of those flicks for a couple of days but they were definately there today when i was reading my pg magazine, one prod was particularly obvious so im now 98% sure its baby!
Oh, and bf couldnt get the time off for the anomaly scan so we rearranged it, a day earlier - 9th July 3.30pm.
IM DEFINATELY 110% FEELING MOVEMENT!!!! And it has been the same as that very first prod i suspected at 17w 5d. It started getting very obvious a couple of days ago, 2 july. Its more noticeable when im sitting down quietly, its very constant in the evening (but that is when im relaxing so i guess i will notice it more then). Baby has been going all night tonight too lol. There was one point when i even felt a kick from the outside when i put my hand on my belly!!! So hopefully if we can catch baby at the right time, bf will also be able to feel it! Its soooo reassuring now i have that movement going on.
Our pram/travel system arrived a couple of days after ordering, the company i rang did have the colour in stock bf chose so i was very pleased about that!
We had a lovely day today sitting in the garden in the sun with a bbq! And the dogs loved it too, especially when they got their barbequed chicken!!!!!
My sister is buying us the baby monitor so i have done alot of research and have chosen either the tommee tippee or angel care movement moitors, also been looking at various breast pumps for when i return to work and so bf can get involved and do some feeds.
My 21 week scan on Thurs, oly 5 days to go! Im excited but a little nervous at the same time, i hope everything is ok, am going to get the sonographer to particularly check the face as i was born with a hair lip, although im very lucky as its hardly noticeable, most ppl dont realise i have it until i point it out. Oh and i have my 22 midwife appointment booked for 14th July!
Those movements are more frequent which i love! Its so comforting feeling them!
My Scan is tomorrow, going in at 3pm, a little earlier than planned as my sister has asked her colleage who scanned me before to do me as the others arent so good, plus this lady has been with me from day one so its reassuring to know im going to have her.
Went to the shops the other day and bought some nappies, decided they are so expensive we are going to start stocking up now!
I only have 3 months left at work now, im so pleased i feel like i need to get away from all the rubbish going on there at the moment. Not sure how i stand when i return as i want to go part time. My current boss is fine with that but there is a takeover in feb so it depends on what the new boss says. If they say no they i will leave and find work elsewhere, perhaps locum - good money and choose my own hours. Either way when i return from my maternity leave i am going to work part time hours. Wish i didnt have to work at all lol!
I spoke to S yesterday, she is going well, is just over 27weeks now! She said she can actually see her belly moving now when baby moves lol. I like it when she tells me something new, its then a 'marker' for me to know when i can roughly expect the same!!
My friend E hit 11 weeks on Friday, time is going quick now! Think she is very anxious, i guess wih knowing mine and S's history or past m/c it makes her nervous. Although she hasnt had any m/c herself so im sure she will be fine. The silly hosp cant fit her in for her 1st scan until she is 13w 6d, so the waiting isnt helping her. Plus if her dates are slightly out she may miss the timing for the NT scan which is rediculous.
Im feeling so much movement now, throughout the day when baby wakes up, and have felt it a few times when i put my hand on my belly too. Still trying to catch the right moment so bf can feel that.
I had my midwife appointment yesterday, all went well! Blood pressure was normal and urine was clear, fundal height measuring on target at 23cm, wow didnt realise my uterus was above my belly button already, thats mad!!!! She listened to the hb with the doppler and baby kicked it twice lol!!
Bf *may* have felt a couple of small kicks the other night but they werent particiularly strong to me so i cant really say for definate yet!!
Not much else going on, lots of rubbish at work still, i cant wait til my maternity leave starts!!
Yay for 24 weeks!! Its been my next milestone i have been aiming for. Mainly because a baby is legally defined as being born with a chance of survival after 24 weeks. Obviously there is no way i want my baby born early but there is some comfort to know that i have reached this stage and every week after this gets better and better!
I have been seeing lots of kicks through my belly which is great, poor bf still hasnt felt them, baby stops every time he puts his hand on!! My friend T at work felt baby yesterday, she was at the right place at the right time lol.
Going to pop round my sisters house at the weekend to start making plans for the baby shower. Looked at some invitations last night and there are so many to choose from!!
My work colleague E is 13w 6d tomo and goes for her 1st scan at 11.40am, she is nervous, im sure all will be great though and am keeping all crossed for her!! S doing good, she is now 30 weeks!!
I have worked out i only have 10 weeks left at work (am on hol for one week inbetween so 9 weeks left i guess!) wahey!!!
I did intend to write on here yesterday but forgot!
Bf finally got to feel baby kicking the other night!! We were laying in bed and i felt a very small kick so he put his hand on my belly, i fully expected baby to stop like normal but instead it gave 4 or 5 really big kicks!!! Bf was really shocked at how hard those kicks were lol. And i must admit, theyt were prob some of the biggest kicks i have felt! He also got to feel some more last night so baby is finally playing ball!!!
E had her scan and all was looking good, her NT measurement was good at 1.5mm and baby was wiggling around and measuring bang on target, im so relieved for her!
Me and my sister have sorted some of the details for the baby shower, we are going to hold it at one of our local pubs and have hired the restaurant. They will lay on the buffet and will put up all the decorations we want too, although it might be fun if we do the decs ourselves! Think we have chosen the invitations:
They arent too costly and they look really nice, have a ribbon in the middle which ties to close the card.
So far we counted about 55-60 invites sent out via facebook (eek!) but im counting prob at least 25 that i dont think can make it (lol i hope so or it will be a bit too crammed!). Will order the card invites this weekend and get them sent out at the beginning of the week.
