ermmmmmmmmm..... already started this morning poppets

Thanks guys for the congrats..... it still seems strange to be having a girl but I'm sure we will get used to the idea. Need some suggestions for names though as we dont agree on anything....... middle name will probably be Elizabeth as thats a family name so what goes with that?? We never agree on girls names although had a few if it was a boy. Its such a novelty this time to know the sex in advance.... I think its brilliant.... I wasnt allowed to know back in Peterborough, UK.

We didn't have a name for our daughter either, we named her Hannah in the end as it was the only one we both liked. Then about an hour after she was born the song Lola was on the radio. That had been on my list but hubby wasn't keen. Anyway, as you can imagine, we heard the song during a very emotional time and decided to give her two first names (middle name already decided, also a family name!) so she became Hannah-Lola, but within weeks we dropped the Hannah and she is just our Lola! Funny thing though, our family in UK mostly still call her Hannah, as do a few friends here that dont see her much, and I find I easily switch between her two names depending on who I am talking to!

So, you've already been in Pumpkin Patch etc?! When is she due?

I only bought a couple of pinky patterned fleecy throws as I bought a couple for the cats to sleep on too. Next week when nipper goes to pre-school I'll pop to Botany and have a look around and see what I need.

Bub is due on 19th January but I'm having a c-sect first week in January at about 38 weeks so I'm over half way now Somehow its made it all more exciting for me now I know its a girl.... of course I wouldve loved another boy too but this is unknown territory for us and so new and exciting.

Damned fine girl,thank you. In tonight but wifey's on an early so got the boys.
S'posed to be ironing but every 5th item it leaks like a 89 yr old with bad prostates.
Waiting for our bloody University to get its act together. Were waiting for it to get our training transcripts together,been 6 weeks now,until then can't put in our application.
Already told work we're leaving 29/10,and our leaving do is 11/11,and was hoping to fly out end November. Doing my shaven head right in,it is.
And apart from all that-our rented property is sold,so we've got about 6 weeks accomodation left. Bugger. Still dead relaxed though,cos I know it's going to happen,so just keeping the BP in order.
How's you? you must be starting to get a little more uncomfy now-or are you bloomin lovely?

Wow.... its all happening for you. I dont even know what month it is most of the time.... we had a Playgroup meeting tonight and suddenly realised that its the end of August and that we have to plan our christmas party for the kids soon.... these back to front seasons mess with ya head!!

I was feeling great til I got that dose of flu the other week now I feel a bit fat and uncomfortable.... certainly not blooming now. Ive been suffering with a pain thats like sciatica lately so have taken it easy today and its a lot better.... I hope its just coz I moved house and did too much. TBH I hate being pregnant... I didnt like it first time around and this time I had more sickness.... I'm looking forward to when its all over..... hell then the sleepless nights arrive..... lol.... jeez why didnt I stick with just one?

Off to bed now as its getting late... have a good-un.
