Ah, hi everyone! smile

Hi everyone, busy day here. DD's 4th birthday party, I've been in my feet all day and I'm EXHAUSTED!! I have a really sore back too. Following on from previous threads chat, I don't get a linea negra either, but have noticed my areola getting darker. I've been in my maternity clothes for a few weeks now- baby number 3 and I'm showing much earlier than my previous pregnancies.

Hi everyone!
Not been on much but everything seems to be ticking along ok still. I've been living in my Next ultimate maternity jeans, sooo comfy! I need another pair.

Speaking of mat clothes, Don't bother with New Look maternity pyjamas, I ordered a pair that were supposedly over bump and they are most certainly not! Hardly any stretch, cut quite low and just feel like normal pjs. Their maternity leggings are good though.

GinIsIn Sun 14-Aug-16 20:57:13

Hi everyone! Ooh I need to look at next maternity jeans - have been wearing the debenhams red herring ones but while they're great when you're stood up, the lack of stretch in the denim is a bit diggy in when you sit down.

Went to visit the PILs this weekend and their dog was OBSESSED with my stomach- she would not stop trying to put her head on it all weekend. It was so odd! She's always like me, but she just wouldn't leave me alone - wanting to lie in my lap with her head on the bump all the time.

Holly1987 Sun 14-Aug-16 21:05:21

I bought my first pair of maternity jeans today. Didn't really have a clue where to look or what I was looking for blush So just got a black pair from asos for £28 to start me off! Went for over the bump as I'm worried I'd be constantly pulling up the other ones lol So we'll see how they are. Luckily all my other clothes still fit!

Evening all, marking my place.

Boss of back from hols yesterday so will be he first chance I've had to tell her I'm expecting. Have a thought she knows already but will probs guess tomorrow when she sees me, tummy quite hard to hide now at 14+1 smile

Shellbell0403 Sun 14-Aug-16 21:20:10

I'm not really showing much.. got a tiny wee bump but looks like a wee round tummy with to much food although not eating alot... when does the bump start to get bigger? Nearly 14 weeks 😀

kikisdelivery Sun 14-Aug-16 21:28:22

Ooh, a new thread! Marking my place on this one and catching up on the other one after a busy weekend!

gumbootsandjandals Sun 14-Aug-16 21:44:57

I've never had a linea nigra. My belly button has never popped out either!

I think I am heading into my last week of normal trousers. My work uniform is being held together with a hair Tuesday, and the zip keeps getting lower. I retrieved two pairs of maternity work trousers and a pair of jeans from storage yesterday. I went into mat jeans at 17 weeks last time so will be one week earlier despite weighing slightly less.

I still don't have a nice bump. I've just lost my waist all the way around.

topmammy Sun 14-Aug-16 22:12:06

I still don't have a proper looking bump shape.. looks more like podge. When I lie down on my back my stomach is pretty flat too. I'm sure I'll just wake up one morning soon with a bump out of nowhere grin

Mysterycat23 Sun 14-Aug-16 22:37:17

Fenella that is so cute! My dog was doing that today. She had been off me for weeks but is now my friend again.

Bump wise, met up with 2 friends today who are due 1 week and 2 weeks after me, one has a bump and in maternity clothes (like me) and one has zero bump and still in normal clothes. She also has not been sick once, the jammy sod!! Me and other friend were gobsmacked and very jealous happy for her!

We went car booting today and got a couple of baby gros.. actually cried a bit looking at the feet/sock part, it is so tiny! DH now traumatised!

GinIsIn Sun 14-Aug-16 22:42:01

Mystery - it would be cute if the PILs' dog wasn't fucking MASSIVE and really heavy! grin

Who else is having movements? My friend described perfectly as feeling like a butterfly in a cage. Have definitely had some of those, kind of every other day I've noticed. How about everyone else 16+2 here x

divadee Mon 15-Aug-16 07:05:02

Morning ladies.

little I have had a couple I think. But like you only every couple of days so i wasn't sure if it was wind at first. Yesterday it definitely wasn't wind.

twocatsandatoddler Mon 15-Aug-16 07:37:28

little I get the occasional flutter too, every few days.

I'm really struggling today. I blame the Olympics - I haven't been going to bed super late but I was hoping to get some early nights this weekend to catch up on sleep and that just hasn't happened. Practically falling asleep on the train this morning.

SkyLucy Mon 15-Aug-16 08:06:02

Morning all. Who was talking about dizziness recently? I'm still sitting up in bed at the moment, I'm so dizzy I can't get up properly! DH made me some toast before leaving- I'm hoping that will raise my blood sugar level shortly. Weird though - anyone else had it/got any good coping strategies?

SpinALittleFaster Mon 15-Aug-16 08:14:07

Marking my place smile.

I tried maternity jeans yesterday but there's nothing to hold them up so they kept slipping down. DH told me that I probably stretched them out last time, charming! I ordered a new pair last week so hopefully they'll turn up soon. Desperately need new work trousers but haven't found anything other than wide or pencil leg so far and both look awful on me. I had some from New Look last time but the quality was terrible and they had to be thrown out when I finished working.

LaceyLee Mon 15-Aug-16 08:18:23

Morning all. I'm getting some movements but not regular yet, still early days at 15+1. Didn't feel anything til about 19 weeks in 1st pregnancy.
Apart from jeans most of my non maternity clothes fit but I've found I just look fat in them whereas I look pregnant in maternity stuff! I'm liking my h& m leggings. Got a couple of bits v cheap in JoJo. Jeans come up big but they are good quality.

That dizziness doesn't sound good sky I've not had that but you could mention to a midwife perhaps... Hope the toast helps.
