blonderthanred Sun 11-Nov-12 23:50:30

Oh poor your legs Faif!

Although in some ways I kind of miss being pg, I have tried to take the odd moment to appreciate the return of my ankles and not needing to wee all the bloody time!

FriendofDorothy Mon 12-Nov-12 08:54:55

After feeling better yesterday my fucking cold is back with avengence.

I feel like shite and I am sitting at my desk feeling rubbish sad

FriendofDorothy Mon 12-Nov-12 12:40:31

Have been to work and I am now back home and planning to spend a couple of hours under a blanket on the sofa. Thank goodness for TOIL and a nice boss.

I have a scan this afternoon though so will have to get up later on.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Mon 12-Nov-12 13:47:08

Rest up while you can dor! smile

FriendofDorothy Mon 12-Nov-12 16:34:58

Just had our scan. Everything looks fine with Winston measuring averagely on most things but 90th centile for belly. She reckons he weighs 6lbs 5oz which sounds massive!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Mon 12-Nov-12 16:43:32

Great news dor. Will he grow much in the next month? 6lb is a nice dinky baybee!

FriendofDorothy Mon 12-Nov-12 16:48:01

They reckon half a pound on a week. So we are looking at a 9 pounder!

blonderthanred Mon 12-Nov-12 19:09:39

Fab news Dor.

Faith Bounty are doing a 25% offer on dreamgenii products.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Mon 12-Nov-12 19:14:28

Oooh I'll check it out. I've tried sleeping with a normal pillow but I'm getting uncomfy still.

dor shock ooh that is rather large! confused

Can I ask about weight gain? Obviously I'm on the bigger side (BMI about 30) and I don't want to gain too much, though I know some is inevitable. My friend - a dietitian - said to aim for 7kg. So far I haven't gained anything yet. I just lost 4lb through puking and gained it back! Will I start gaining soon now I'm in my 2nd trimester?

blonderthanred Mon 12-Nov-12 19:19:41

There is quite a good thing on I think baby centre which gives a good idea of what you can expect to gain at different weights. But I gained lots in 1st tri and then v little (1st overall). I'd just concentrate on eating healthily, rather than actual weight.

FriendofDorothy Mon 12-Nov-12 22:44:50

i have gained just over 2 stone and my BMI was 36 to start with. I haven't gone mad with the eating but I have been so faddy about what I have wanted to eat that I have had to be a bit lax.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Tue 13-Nov-12 09:41:58

Good to know dor. When you think that at least 6lb is baybee plus the placenta....
I'm finding it quite liberating not 'dieting' but eating what I fancy although I'm struggling to eat enough fruit and veg! I'm trying to exercise to help my core too although the shifts are helping with that! Nights start tonight for the first time in 2 years!

Oh I've realised as well - my abdo pain has eased since I got diffed, suddenly got worse again but I've twigged it's since I ran out of decaf tea bags so I reckon caffiene aggravates it!

FriendofDorothy Tue 13-Nov-12 09:45:53

Well I counted back to my last scan four weeks ago and I have put on 3lbs, the baby has put on at last 2.5lbs all on his own so I don't reckon that I have personally put on weight in that time.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Tue 13-Nov-12 10:03:03

No doesn't sound like it! smile

HavingALittleFaithBaby Tue 13-Nov-12 13:48:19

Help me decide please - do I a. Go to gentle Pilates at 2.30 at the local leisure centre, b. go for a walk round the village or c. Chill bearing in mind I'm working a night tonight?

blonderthanred Tue 13-Nov-12 15:20:46

Walk - if you haven't gone already!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Tue 13-Nov-12 15:34:37

I made it to Pilates! I really feel those classes help me stretch out judges that have got tight with this abdo pain. I feel nice and relaxed now ready for a nap before I get ready for work! smile

blonderthanred Tue 13-Nov-12 15:57:29

Oh good for you. I just fancied some fresh air and thought you could breathe some in on my behalf... But Pilates is almost certainly the most beneficial. Was it pgy Pilates or just a basic class?

Wish it wasn't so grotty out as I am getting cabin fever. L has had a couple of really bad nights and I am so shattered. No surprise really but it is hard to function. He is just a bit windy and unsettled I think. Only wants to sleep on my chest. It's still all wonderful and he is a delight but a hard couple of days.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Tue 13-Nov-12 16:32:52

Just a basic class with her saying If you're pregnant, wider legs..all the pregnancy specific stuff near me is still some drive and double the price. Also they want a 10 week commitment which I can't meet.

My sister got cabin fever after her c/s! Is there anyone you can meet with to go for a walk?

blonderthanred Tue 13-Nov-12 17:55:06

Yes it's just the weather and dark mostly, plus I haven't got my shit together at all the last few days because of L being so unsettled. I am making sure I get a walk around the block as often as poss, around every other day but yesterday and today there was barely any daylight and I've been in a haze of crying baby. Can't wait for you all to have yours! Do we know how cake&cava is getting on?

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 15-Nov-12 08:51:29

Woo hoo, MSB got a new job! He is delighted because its a change he really fancies, stiff competition and a big pay rise smile I am now trying to negotiate having 8 months mat leave since he's be Mr Bread Winner from now on!

queenrollo Thu 15-Nov-12 09:37:48

That's great news faith

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 15-Nov-12 09:51:30

Mmm smile wonder if he'll agree to me going part time?! Urgh nights have nearly finished me off! I think I've got a kidney stone left side now (last time problem was right sided) based on the pain. That's it, I'm calling the needles people when I wake up!

blonderthanred Thu 15-Nov-12 09:59:15

Fantastic, congratulations MSB!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 15-Nov-12 16:16:36

I'm so pleased for him smile no more Saturdays too!

I pleasantly stirred at 2.30, had a long bath and washed my hair! Lovely.
I am wondering if I am feeling movement. Not often, just odd times. Last night I had a really cold drink and I swear I felt Pickle wriggle! Exciting times!
