I just had a long lunch with a girlfriend who's been back at home in America for 3 months and now I am even more unmotivated than I was this morning! I am just so tired all the time.
Oh, btw, had my OB appointment yesterday - all symptoms I was worried about are fine and normal. Blood Pressure is fine and baby's heartbeat was nice and strong and so loud this time round - was amazing! At about 138-140 BPM so it's dropped a lot since last time. I joked that we were now in girl territory with the heartrate = gender prediction and he said in his words it's all bullsh*t!!
Felt well and motivated enough to go for my first pregnancy swim last night. My legs must have so much blood and fluid build up they just need to be exercised. I did some walking and light swimming and it felt sooooo good! Definitely will be back in the pool soon!
Just realised how much I had written - ah well, took up a few mins at work!!
AmyEL is right, everywhere I read said above 140 is a girl and below 140 is a boy. Not sure from how many weeks this applies?

Hi! Thanks so much for the warm welcome.
Adden - Best wishes to control your GD with food & exercise.
Kmvw - Good luck, nothing does every seem easy!
Motherwillbe - Congratulations on your baby boy!
Meshell23 - Pumkinpatch is so cute too.
Grebbeci - That is so beautiful.
SL1009 - Great effort on the exercise front! & really great obs at your checkup.
No MS for me (with any of the pregnancies), feel a bit queasy occasionally. I do gag and dry retch when I brush my teeth... only time I've ever been sick was (TMI & embarrassing)when DH let one go and it smelt so bad I vomited.
I went to see a midwife today, and she we just beautiful! HB is 150, blood pressure is good. Baby kicked the doppler off when she put it on. So cute.
Take care everyone!
Today's research is around swaddles / wraps...
stretchy cotton wraps
I will be having a summer bubs - so I think I will need muslin wraps or maybe just stretchy cotton wraps. Waffle wraps I'm told are great, but thicker, so may start using these when bubs is a few months old and it starts getting cooler
