Hi everyone, back from our hols in the lakes. It was freezing and raining alot of the time but still enjoyed it. I am massive now though - may be food or may be baby (prob both) but I am actually waddling. Oh dear.

Great that we have a new thread and will meet our babbas in a matter of weeks really!

So sorry about your news bunny

Welcome to diecio

<waves to everyone>

allchik Sat 22-Sep-12 18:52:29

Just a heads up ladies....loadsa 50% offers for mamas and papas.

I need to get my arse in gear with our house, we moved in in March and started off doing loads of decorating....then we ripped up the carpets and ripped out the gas fire....and then kinda stopped.....so we now have scummy floorboards that need sanding and varnishing, and a gaping fire hole where the bricks need cleaning, the wall needs plastering and a wood burner needs to be bought n installed....will look lush when its done but what a BLOODY MISSION!!!

Really want to get the place looking nice before the babies here as guessing he/she will be a tad time consuming smile

MarasmeAbsolu Sat 22-Sep-12 19:02:27

allchick - you described our flat down to the detail. We too started ripping, only to give up with the bits that were stuck on so hard it'll take hours of steaming to get them off.

Pascha Sat 22-Sep-12 22:47:38

Widget appears to be having a party tonight smile. I can feel body parts all over the place and very definite bum and head. Don't know which is which yet as both are still very bony but they are both doing a rumba in my tummy.

Lol, cat just crawled under the duvet and started licking my bump!

I guess it needs grooming....

katolla Sun 23-Sep-12 10:18:57

Finally felt my first kick! Thank goodness, i was starting to think the nausea was just food poisoning. DP was giving her a rub and she kicked back, really strong. She'll only do it for him though sad

Can i please be added to the list? My due date is 28/01/13, I'm 33 and live in north central london.

Thanks to Pascha for mentioning ebay, that's my morning wasted then.. :O

allchik Sun 23-Sep-12 11:58:26

Grrr just motivated myself to go to the gym for the first time in yonks and it was bloody closed!! Was proper up for it too!

Pascha Sun 23-Sep-12 14:17:35

Brilliant news Katolla at least you've felt it. She's kicking you inside you know, in a couple of weeks it will be really noticable I promise. I'm going back to ebay for jeans next. Having spent the morning in town trying on high street jeans they are all crappy and uncomfortable so I'm looking for some Seraphine ones as I know the trousers are the right shape for me.

Gym? <shudders> <looks out the window at the pissing rain> <looks at woodburner merrily chugging away> <settles back into chair with cup of tea>

allchik Sun 23-Sep-12 17:18:58

Ooopascha uv got a woodburner!well jealous! Were hoping to get one fitted before crimbo but theyre so bloody expensive!
But got all these lovely thoughts of sitting by the xmas tree snuggling with the baby with the fire crackling away (best dig out the credit card!) smile

Tugstonia Sun 23-Sep-12 17:48:53

That's fab you're feeling the kicks now Katolla! DP felt our little bun kick the other night, he was v excited smile

Anyone else suffering with a cold? I am full of snot and have a horrible sore throat sad Drinking lots of hot lemon and honey and sitting on my backside bidding on stuff on ebay to cheer myself up.

Pascha Sun 23-Sep-12 18:05:31

You can all share my log burner grin I put a picture on my profile. You can't see the marshmallows i'm planning to toast later...

CreepyCrawly Sun 23-Sep-12 20:12:35

Hi all, I'm just wondering if any of you have experienced/can explain this.. When baby is active, I get a massive build up of 'feeling' right about where she is, and then she gives an almighty kick before going still again. I'm not worried or anything, but the build up is quite intense and just wondering what she's up to in there.

Hope everyone's had a nice weekend!

I get that a lot creepy. Feels like a build up to something (sometimes feels like gas building up) and then it just goes. I assume its baby turning/rolling and the fluid shifting like when your in the bath!

allchik Sun 23-Sep-12 21:03:58

Me too! I read on my app that at around 25 weeks the bub moves from head up to head down n it can be quite intense (dnt think they stay there,sure they keep moving) last nite it was making me feel quite sick lol!x

PricklyPickle Sun 23-Sep-12 21:29:03

I get that too. I assumed it was bubs pushing at my insides before kicking me. I quite like it. unlike the kick i got to my lower regions the other day that make me fart in front of a colleague

knuckingfackered Sun 23-Sep-12 22:43:04

creepy n all
I get that too, its second time round for me and it reminds me of the later stage braxton hix stuff that happens.
Essentially the womb is going rigid, kinda contracting.
My only explanation is....... at 20 week scan I noticed there was alot of squirming I couldn't feel but more substantial things I could. I think the 'feeling' is a response to whats going on in there when baby is awake and moochin around.

Birdies Mon 24-Sep-12 09:00:30

prickly hahahaha! Was it a loud one lol?!!

allchik what's the app called that you've got?

Hope everyone had a nice day. It's as dark as evening here, bit shitty really. Might have to go shopping to brighten the day..

Complicated24 Mon 24-Sep-12 10:14:44

Just spent a lovely half hour catching up with all your news. So sorry bunnies. I haven't lost a parent since being pregnant but my mother had a stroke shortly before getting pregnant so that has been a huge worry. We lost two babies when I had no stress in my life and had lots of stress during this pregnancy and baby is really healthy. Doesn't make sense does it. Give yourself time to grieve and be kind to yourself.

Going on holiday tomorrow and am busy packing and realised I dont have enough maternity summer clothes. Just tried on bikini and am literally falling out of it. Shops now full of winter clothes so will just have to make do. Spent weekend house hunting and was lovely thinking of houses and gardens our child would want to grow up and play in. We have now read so many Ofsted reports!

Getting loads of movement all day but especially in evening. DH can feel kicks too now. We watched XFactor last night (I still love it!) and baby kicked during all really good performances. Genius child!

allchik Mon 24-Sep-12 12:06:17

Hey birdies Ive got quite a few (saddo!) but the one Im liking at the mo is called baby gaga....it gives a fun description of baby week by week and if you like it will also post to your facebook once a week with an update on babies development (my parents really like to read that)xxx

CreepyCrawly Mon 24-Sep-12 12:44:45

Ah that all makes sense. I do like the feeling, and of course the massive boot she gives me after the build up.

It seems she's a fan of the same American football team as DH though, she wriggles all the way through their games. There's time to change that though, I'll make a Steelers fan of her! grin

Have my 24 week midwife appointment tomorrow, looking forward to that.

Hope everyone is well smile

theboutiquemummy Mon 24-Sep-12 13:11:40

Pleased I'm not the only 1 getting that build up feeling mine also kicks me quite hard in what feels like my fanny now that hurts blush I'm loving the kicks n movement DH rubs cream into my bump at night n he always gets a kick from the baby

katolla Mon 24-Sep-12 13:15:29

Hmm.. I'm still wearing my pre-pregnancy skinny jeans which are a bit tight when sitting down, I just straightened up which caused a load of kicking. Hope i wasn't strangling her.. that's not a thing, right??

SquealyB Mon 24-Sep-12 16:50:35

Had a day full of needles today as had full GTT test....ouch ouch ouch. The nurse taking blood was far from gentle!! Oh well, all in aid of having a healthy baby come January.

Glad to hear everyone is well. I have a stupid question, I am getting a sort of pulse sensation down at the bottom of the fango, I get a couple of strong ones (not strong enought to make you wince but you certainly notice it) and then they go away again but I am getting them most days.....are these Braxton Hicks confused??

Birdies Mon 24-Sep-12 16:59:28

Thanks allchik

squealy that sounds more like downwards baby movements. Braxton hicks are more where your whole tummy suddenly goes really tight and slightly uncomfy (but not painful) and then a few seconds later it disappears. So not pulsing feelings.

katolla don't think it's possible to strangle smile but its good to give baby as much room as poss so think about ditching your tight stuff or get one of those adjusters so you can wear them with button undone.

SquealyB Mon 24-Sep-12 17:08:30

Thanks Birdies.....first DC so have no idea about a lot of these things despite avid devouring of baby books.
