16+5 I think today! Bump featuring Nando's butterfly chicken with chips and coleslaw for lunch with two slices of Cadbury's swiss roll grin

Waitingonasmile Fri 21-Jul-17 17:59:10

Thank for new thread millsbynight. I ate a whole footling subway today shock, but Nando's sounds lovely. Chicken burger with medium spice, mashed potato and peri peri chips. Mmmm

thingymaboob Fri 21-Jul-17 18:49:57

So jealous of everyone's bumps. Am 15 weeks. Got a bit of flab there. I'm also jealous of everyone eating stuff. Still got hyperemesis and still vomiting everyday!

Gemxo Fri 21-Jul-17 19:17:59

Gorgeous bump X

Issywizzybelle Fri 21-Jul-17 19:37:44

Loving everyone's bump pictures - I keep forgetting to take pictures but definitely got something in between of bloat and bump but already in maternity trousers as nothing else is comfy and almost hurts wearing

rememberpurpleronnie Fri 21-Jul-17 19:43:19

Great bump! I'm just back from the USA on a work trip- discovered motherhood maternity- a whole shop dedicated to maternity clothes! Not just a crammed rack in a dark corner! I went a bit mad as it was so nice to be able to try things on- when I buy online I never send anything back if I don't like it. They stock Jessica Simpson maternity which is lovely, even though I'm not generally a fan of her style. If you are going to the USA definitely worth a visit!

millsbynight Fri 21-Jul-17 20:35:17

waiting I had a meatball marinara sub the other day... drooooooool! So good!

thingy sorry to hear you're still suffering sad Not being able to enjoy food while pregnant is the absolute pits.

klaw87 Fri 21-Jul-17 21:06:56

Just placemarking!

Bumps are looking fab will try and remember to post a pic of mine tomorrow. Have also booked a gender scan for next Sunday... eeeek so excited!!

millsbynight Fri 21-Jul-17 21:27:16

So exciting klaw! DH making me wait until the 20 week scan as cash is a bit tight sad Was really hoping to book something for this or next week but I've waited this long so I guess I can wait another 4 weeks! It's torture though, I'm desperate to find out!

klaw87 Fri 21-Jul-17 22:13:13

@millsbynight hubby was adamant we should wait to 20 week scan but I managed to talk him into agreeing while he was distracted when out shopping... I'd booked it before he could change his mind 😂

shaaan1329 Fri 21-Jul-17 23:11:42

Lovely every night I keep thinking I'm showing, but after a good nights sleep I wake up in the morning and you can't tell... Definitely seeing a food baby every evening I think!

I'm undecided whether to book a gender scan or not! Baby's dad left us when I was 8 weeks, so doing this all by myself (first pregnancy so terrified yet so excited!). Although i definitely want to know, I'm not sure how I'll feel going alone, I can't justify spending that amount of money on a scan and having nobody to share the special moment with so I'll probably just be waiting til 20 week scan!

At my twelve week scan baby was so active so sonographer couldn't get measurements for back of neck, got to go back on 16th of August to have blood tests because of this. Has anyone experienced this before? I don't quite understand all these screening tests and measurements etc! sad

Briggs18 Fri 21-Jul-17 23:22:52

shaaan1329 sorry to hear that remember we are all here for support and I'm sure you will be just fine smile is there a friend or family member you could maybe take with you? it is a lot of money I'm very impatient so had to book one! My little one was very active too wouldn't have been able to get measurements however I opted not to get the test done so not entirely sure

NovaArt3mis Sat 22-Jul-17 06:54:12

Thanks for the new thread mills

Exactly the same issy, huge a bedtime but less so in the morning.

That sucks thingy, hope you feel a bit better soon.

We're just going to wait til 20 week scan too. I've convinced myself it's a girl so I'm not feeling too impatient. I would love another scan to make sure all is ok though. This part is so difficult because I feel better(ish) but won't feel movement for ages so just have to trust that everything is going to plan.

Disinterested Sat 22-Jul-17 08:34:09

Thanks for the new thread smile

I finally found the babies heartbeat today and have fallen even more in love. It was magical to hear. It's gone hiding again but I am putting it away until next week so not to get obsessed!

Happy Saturday everyone smile

Disinterested Sat 22-Jul-17 08:34:58

Oh and I've got my gender scan booked for the 5th of August - two weeks today. I don't have the patience to wait until my 20 week scan on the 11th of September! 😂

Waitingonasmile Sat 22-Jul-17 09:12:49

Shaaan1329 If you want one you should get a friend or family member to come. You are the one doing all the hard work so deserve a lovely experience/treat to yourself.

My sex scan is next Wednesday. Really excited but also nervous that something will have gone wrong since dating scan.

Iamchanging Sat 22-Jul-17 09:52:03

We are 20 week scan date buddies distinterested!

MegRam Sat 22-Jul-17 12:52:42

Hi all, loving the new thread.

DH and I have just been to look around the nursery we want to apply to - very early I know but the waiting list is long and we need to apply for a place soon! Crazy to think about when we don't even know the gender yet!

I'm just trying to think about how much mat leave I will want to take! So hard at this point! Anyone else who's planning to go back to work got any ideas of how long they're planning to take off??! confused

Waitingonasmile Sat 22-Jul-17 13:07:47

I think I'll take 10 months megram

Decaffstilltastesweird Sat 22-Jul-17 13:29:27


I might be extremely late to the party, seeing as you are on your fourth thread!

If it's ok to join you though, I just had my dating scan yesterday and my EDD is 30th January, (same as sureitsgrand whose username implies she might be Irish like myself me)? This is dc2 for us. We have a 2 and a half yo DD.

Love the bump pics btw smile!

Rosehyd2 Sat 22-Jul-17 13:39:00

@shaaan1329 My 12 week scan went like that, the sonographer couldn't get the nuchal measurements as baby was moving around so much. I have a midwife appointment on 2nd August and she said to mention to the midwife about blood tests if we still want the check done. Fingers crossed all goes okay.

NovaArt3mis Sat 22-Jul-17 13:43:01

We're hoping to have enough saved to take the full year meg but I only get SMP so we'll have to play it by ear, I think you just need to give 30 days notice to amemd your return date.

Hi decaf

Just got my anomoly scan appointment letter for Sept 1st so thats exciting. Think we're going to tell a few more people tomorrow.

ForumUsername Sat 22-Jul-17 14:03:40

@Decaffstilltastesweird I'm Irish too
EDD is 20th Jan

I'm going to take 6months and see how I get on
I may take an extra 3 or 6 months but they will be unpaid so will have to see how we are getting on
