Welcome to our new home! smile

OComeAllYeFaithBaby Tue 01-Jan-13 16:08:27

Yes I'd go for some decongestants right now, my ear feels like it might pop! Never mind, it's better than it was yesterday so I guess I'll mind. MSB has it too but is able to dose himself up to the eyeballs. I am making the most of him napping by watching Addams Family Values, one of my all time faves! smile

We took the decorations down. The living room is massive. I am very pleased with this!

Yes tis wonderful about our friends! We'll be on mat leave together grin

snowqueenrollo Tue 01-Jan-13 18:52:49

we watched that too! I'd forgotten how good it is. I've also taken down the decs, though I didn't put up as many this year.

FriendofDorothy Tue 01-Jan-13 21:27:54

Hiya. I am feeling better every day although I definitely get a fanjo ache if I do too much.

Edward continues to do well. He is lushness itself!

OComeAllYeFaithBaby Wed 02-Jan-13 13:31:48

dor just seen a tip on my ante-natal thread suggesting you out witch hazel on pads then put then in a fridge. Worth a try? How's things progressing with the house?

I am on the mend but poor MSB was kept awake by my snoring all last night! I sent him to the spare room about 3am - he has to work today! He ordered me a pregnancy pillow (I never got round to it myself) so I'm looking forward to trying that later!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 03-Jan-13 22:41:56

Evening all! I've encouraged bluer to come over and have a look in here! I'm definitely improving although my head still hurts. Poor MSB is suffering a lot! The pregnancy pillow is marvellous although took a bit of getting used to.

My Next stuff got delivered, got a nice black polo neck and two bump covering hoodies a long with a triple pack of baby grows and a fluffy grey sleep suit smile

How is everyone?

bluer Fri 04-Jan-13 07:46:03

Hello! I'm here <waves>
Thanks for the invite * faith* grin

snowqueenrollo Fri 04-Jan-13 08:43:58

welcome bluer smile

Hope you are feeling much better soon faith

I am getting SO uncomfy now. Baby is running out of room in there, the most cringeworthy thing it's doing is pressing limbs right into my groin. It's not exactly painful just kind of makes me feel a bit queasy.
My birthing ball arrived yesterday so I can finally sit in comfort, though it's not like being able to slob out on the sofa.
This morning I woke at just gone 7am for a wee and as I sat up in bed to get out I felt the head drop. It's happened a few times now so it's definitely moving in and out of the pelvis and engaging. Still a little anxious about popping early.....and starting to get a little bit scared now about the labour/early days of motherhood.

FriendofDorothy Fri 04-Jan-13 09:10:54

Hi bluer. Glad you could join us. How many weeks are you now?

bluer Fri 04-Jan-13 10:06:39

Hi nine Weeks on Monday according to doc....i'm a bit less sure (long cycles, very irregular) but morning sickness just kicked in with a vengeance so maybe eight Weeks more like?

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 04-Jan-13 10:50:31

Ooh bluer! Welcome, welcome. Pull up a chair. What's your current due date? Have you got your scan date? Not much longer to go....morning sickness both sucks and is massively reassuring smile Mine eased a bit by week 10 - not every day any morning. Triggers for me were tea <sob> I'm still on the decaf - normal tea tastes 'weird', baked beans, especially in the morning. What helped were ice lollies (though this was in August/September) and ginger biscuits. Mostly eating little and often!

queenie I'm glad the birthing ball is giving you some comfort. How is DS behaving now?

blonderthanred Fri 04-Jan-13 12:04:45

Hi bluer. Welcome! I was just thinking yesterday about those early weeks and how beautiful, strange and terrifying they were.

My baby is ten weeks old today. He is blimmin brilliant, smiley and bright but unfortunately still not growing fast enough. We have a tongue tie referral next Weds so maybe that will help. I am trying to express during the brief period of the day when I'm not feeding him so I can top him up with that but if no improvement this week I will have to try formula top ups.

bluer Fri 04-Jan-13 14:36:01

Hi everyone! Ah yes strange and terrifying indeed...current due date is 15th August but I don't think that's right! Our scan is the last day of this month but i've just found there's a place locally that does a reassurance scan for 35 quid...i'm tempted as another four Weeks seems ages! What do we think?

blonderthanred Fri 04-Jan-13 15:26:07

My dr said 8 wks was a good time to have a scan. £35 is a good price, I'd probably have done it.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 04-Jan-13 16:04:24

Yes don't go too early or it'll be inconclusive and heart breaking sad we debated massively about a scan and in the end chose to be patient (very difficult!). Local reassurance scans were more like £100 though....

DSis felt the baybee kick for the first time today, very exciting! DNephew asked me if there was a baby in my 'big fat tummy' hmm but made up for it by giving me and bump a kiss a cuddle when I left grin Ah 3 year olds!

bluer Fri 04-Jan-13 16:34:13

Aw three years is a great age...my friends three year old actually makes me more broody than teeny tiny babies <scared of new ones>
My last period was 7th Nov...I reckon I ovulated on 3rd Dec so...how many Weeks am I? ! smile

FriendofDorothy Fri 04-Jan-13 17:40:09

My 3 1/2 year old nephew has been so sweet with Edward. When he was crying having his nappy changed Barnabas was stroking his head and trying to calm him down with his toy monkey. So sweet!

Eden on the other hand keeps looking at him and hosting BABY! Most amusing!

FriendofDorothy Fri 04-Jan-13 17:48:00

The Mister is back on night shift tonight for the first time since I had Edward. I am a it worried about it as he is much more patient than me at night. Night shifts are horrid anyway and I basically lose him for three days and nights due to having to sleep hmm

HavingALittleFaithBaby Fri 04-Jan-13 18:23:40

I know that feeling dor! Next weekend I'm on night Thurs/Fri/Sat so with MSB at work Mon-Fri it'll be lame sad

Yes there's something about the 3 year old mentality. Inquisitive about the world but say it as they see it smile earlier he answered the phone Hello, Fireman Sam here, where's the fire? grin

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 06-Jan-13 13:05:38

Afternoon PESH! Hope we're all well? How's the fanjo dory?

I am definitely on the mend but still a bit snuffly! I have my GTT on Tuesday. Now she went through the instructions but it was a few weeks ago and I had just seen the baybee. I know I need to fast from 9pm the night before but can I still drink water in the morning? (Those of you who have been there, done that!).

blonderthanred Sun 06-Jan-13 21:28:32

I'm struggling to remember, Faife, I think water was ok.

I forgot I had mine until I woke up... Luckily had eaten early the night before.

Hope it goes well. Do you know if it's Lucozade or yucky glucose syrup at your hospital?

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 06-Jan-13 21:40:41

I have dug out my hospital trust book. Water is ok, no food after 9pm. It says lucozade (phew). Is it nice to eat cake again?

blonderthanred Sun 06-Jan-13 22:00:11

A bit too nice. I have my follow up GTT in a week, hope I don't turn out to have actual diabetes.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 06-Jan-13 22:06:19

I'm sure it'll be fine! Love the pic on t'other place tonight btw. How many weeks is L now?

FriendofDorothy Sun 06-Jan-13 22:41:31

Water's fine. They gave me toast after the second blood test.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 06-Jan-13 22:44:11

Hmm I might take some GF bread with me then. I'd be fainting without water!
