Lie = Your glowing vs Truth = Your sweating, freezing, puking and an emotional basket!

Lie = After the first trimester your ms will disappear vs The truth = It will be there in the second trimester and the third..... and probably after you give birth! Get used to it!

Lie = You don't look even look pregnant vs The truth = whatever, you look pregnant from space!

Lets see what we learn from the second trimester! grin wink

Lie - you will get gorgeous, flowy, shiny pregnancy hair
Truth- your hair looks like you've dumped a bag of chips on it and resists being attacked with the straighteners.

Lie - you will bloom in second trimester.
Truth - you will spend most of the time asleep and dribbling so will miss the so called bloom

Managed to drive all the way to Stratford on Avon grin and back today for sis's birthday - took 4 hours to get back, thanks Silverstone...

Have had endless hayfever today which is driving me insane. I cannot keep blowing my nose, it's giving me a headache. Also, the sneezes pull a muscle in my lower belly, which is aching now. Please, plants STOP PUTTING OUT POLLEN. I am getting a bit ragey about it now.

I was glad to see my Mum today though (away from hospital) - she's back there now, and it's looking like he won't last through the night (but they said that before). I feel less crappy about not being with her through this.

One and a half days of work until my scan! Then off on hols on Wed lunchtime.

Good luck for the scans tomorrow!

Hola!

Lie = you might want to think about maternity wear soon...

Ha! That was like 3 fricking weeks ago! I'm so fat I hate you, you dumb patch of idiocy clotting up the Internet, up yours!

And this one goes out to my "smart"/"observant" colleagues who think my wardrobe choices are a suitable topic to idly chat about having shown no interest before "SCREW OFF you nosy self satisfied twonk!"

Actually, I had a lovely day with brother and his wife. Fried brekkie, long walk of at least 5 miles, ice cream, bagged soe cheap kilner type jars for £1 ea at a charity shop (great for kimchee) and had a BBQ. Would recommend it.

Shame it's Sunday eh?

Ooh good luck to those having scans!

And glad to hear the bleeding stopped tarka.
