Well I am a teacher so I finish end of July (can't remember date) but then mat leave will officially start at beginning of september. So not that long really to go!!
Same as me snugglenush my last actual day at work will be Friday 26th July xx
Hello all! Good to hear all your news. I am not feeling as sick now but occasionally have a bad day - but rather that than all the time.
@Snugglelush - amazing that you have been able to feel baby from 13wks. I keep feeling a sensation like when your eyebrow sometimes moves by itself like a flickering - is the feeling you get similar to this?? (That is if my description actually makes sense to you!! ).
It is so good to hear all your different points of view. I too am a teacher so as my head said i have timed it nicely as will finish end of July and mat leave will start from Sept. - Genious! (Thank you mother nature).
Hope all your scans go well. I am still waiting for a letter from hospital for my 20wk scan. 16 wk mw appointment on 8th April.
i'm chatting to work about holiday and mat leave this week. i think my leave will start 1st Aug as it fits in with their holidays so looks as if a few of us will be starting similar times.
tulip my 16 week appt is the 9th, close appts again, wonder if our scans will be again too?!
good about your appt ruby but not about your pains, hope you are ok now?
Just got back from my 16 week app - it went v well. Heard the heartbeat! Defo like a train so i reckon I am getting another blue bump! I am 15+2 today but my uterus is measuring 18 weeks!
Scan 2nd May and then consultant app the week after cos i had a csec last time.
thats great dmari and snugglenush
snap micromonkey! not too long now...
Hello everyone! Fell like I havent spoken to you all in ages!
@ruby glad your midwife appointment went well and hope your pains have lessened now, try and take it easy and get some rest, when are you off to Turkey? That will be fab for you and im not too jealous lol!
@dmari great news about your midwife appointment too. You are due 1 day before me and your 20 week scan date is 6 days after mine lol
@snugglenush great about your appointment, another blue baby maybe then lol? are you going to find out at your next scan?
Good luck to all of you that have your appointments etc next week cant wait to hear about them all.
I had my midwife appointment last thursday, heard baby's heartbeat which was fab and then we've been able to hear it on our own doppler since saturday which was really good too, midwife was happy with everything and not seeing her again now till mid may. Have got my 20 week scan on 17th of this month so looking forward to that. Will be guteed if they say babybond got it wrong and its a girl though cuz have done lots of shopping over the weekend, now have changing mat, clothes, vests, baby gros, dummies, 2 packs of nappies and some moses basket sheets lol
Whats new with everyone? Hope you all enjoyed the Easter weekend xxx
@Tali_Elli Yes I will be finding out! Scan is 2nd May - I don't see midwife again until 20th June!!
I've not bought much yet - got a pramsuit and i've just bid on a moby wrap as don't want to buy a double pram really!! Quite like the idea f 'wearing' my baby hehe.
I am just dieing to get at Logan's old clothes and either wash em and sell them or wash em and get them ready in the new room hehe. I am convinced it's another boy . . . . but then there is this tiny doubt in the back of my mind. 4 weeks today until I find out though!!!
@snugglenush well at least its less than a month until your scan now and I'm not seeing midwife again until 16th May which seems like forever! I was living in Ireland when I was pregnant with dd but used to see my midwife there every 4-6 weeks!
Everyone seems to have clothes they can use, all my dd's are no good now we know we're having a boy lol so its costing us a fortune, its like a first time baby again lol!
@minieggs i need to ask about that form as well cuz im sure there's a certain time you have to have this filled in by and I'm not seeing my midwife again until I'm 24 weeks, does anybody know if there is a time issue with these forms?
Who's feeling movements now? Mine have got so much stronger in the last week no mistaking it now, wouldnt say I've had a full blown kick yet but lots of moving around and bubbly sensation gets stronger everyday, cant wait till my partner and dd are able to feel him too although im sure that will still be a while off.
I'm starting to get a bit nervous about my 20 week scan now, my younger brother has a cleft lip and although thats quite a minor issue in the grand scheme of things I know they can be hereditary and its really affected his confidence all of his life and he got quite badly bullied when he was younger not to mention having countless reconstructive operations on it which have left him with two scars. Will be really upset if baby has got it too but then my dd hasnt so am trying to stay positive, anybody else have any worries like this?
I still haven't got my maternity excepmtion form! And my work have said they will jsut have my matB1 form at 28 weeks as I won't be leaving until 31 weeks - but it does seem odd as officially you have to hand it in at 24 weeks.
I'm feeling movement everyday now! Not at regular times but something everyday - they are getting stronger, but not strong enough for hubby to feel yet.
@Aimsie - welcome and congrats! I think my midwife sorted out my antenatal classes - I went in the August last time and was due end of September.
