    OMG Eko next week!!!!! That's crazy!!! I'm soooo excited for you!!!
    My NOT so little bump is doing great. My girl gave me a scare yesterday when she barely moved but she's rolling around in there nicely today so I'm happy
    I can't wait to meet her! 8 weeks and 2 days to go

    Choccie, sounds like bubs could be engaging as RR already suggested. I get that too. She likes to give my pelvis a good thud so I actually have to hold that area to walk . 4 weeks until I finish work too!!!

    Hope everyone is well on this lovely Tuesday

    In terms of getting your head around being a full time mom I found it quite nice actually in the beginning anyways and only after my 1st cause after I had number 2 I felt a bit trapped and sometimes still do! In terms of the adult conversations there is always play group and mothers group so you can still have that, although with saying that I never did either I'm a shy person so when it comes to face to face conversation I'm very useless haha

    The internet. Lots and lots of the internet.

    Honestly I used to go bonkers. I mean the first probably 6 months weren't bad because I was simply too tired and too busy to care about contact with other adults. But after that time I think I really began to miss being me and not just mummy.
    I used to send DH out with his mates a lot and tell him to go to the movies but I never did that myself. I should have. He used to say a lot "You never ask for a night to yourself or ask me to take care of DS so you can go out" and it's true. I didn't.
    I would say to him a lot that I wanted him to offer as I did with him but he just didn't think that way. So this time around I'll just be saying "I'm going out" and spending some time with friends. Or even just going to see a movie by myself or something.

    I went slightly mental as well and had 2.5 years off with DD, now being back at work for 10 months I dont want to leave LOL!!
    My advice would be to throw yourself into mothers groups, activities when bub is a littler older like muscial and interactive things which helps you meet people with babies the same age and before you know it you will have coffee dates coming out your ears!! Another one is to study part time to keep your brain going or start a new at home business

    Well I've had a crazy month. I found out I have a melanoma on my eye.....I had blurred vision in one eye which we thought was just due to pregnancy. And 2 weeks ago I had my eye removed. I'm coping well and adapting to monocular vision. I'm focusing on the good news which is I'm ok now and so is bub! I'm 15 weeks and bub is helping me everyday realise the important things.
    I wanted to share my story in case anyone has any health issue.....get it checked out, it's better to get it early. I'm positive and know this is just a hurdle in my life, thankfully I'm lucky enough to have a wonderful family and friends and this amazing little baby!

    I hope everyone is well and enjoying this pregnancy journey. I am loving being pregnant even though the loss of the eye has been a challenge.

    Wow Miss Feary - sorry I must of missed this post yesterday, im glad you are coping well and have very positive results and also the baby to look forward to.
    I hope your recovery is an easy one!

He shifts in and out of engagement but that was the first time that it happened so violently and man did it hurt. Bet you can't wait for maternity leave.

    AFM - Someone pointed out to me that I'll be having this baby next week . I was like "Yay! 9 days! That's not long at all" but somehow next week seems so much closer than 9 days.
    Suddenly I'm wracked with "I'm not ready" and "there's still so much to do..." but really there isn't. I need to tidy our spare room for my sister as she gets here on Saturday and clean the house (she's a bit OCD and I just know that even though I'm very pregnant she'll expect a spotless house .

    But realistically there's not much else to do other than that. So I might as well get my nesting going while I've got the energy heh.

    I also thought it could be the baby's head engaging but was told this is not common with the second pregnancy and normally does happen until labour commences? Even the midwife said at my last app she wouldnt expect the baby to engage until labour so now im confused!
    The heavyness hasnt really changed since it happened either!

    EKO - I dont want to start mat leave cause im back to mummy duties, I like working lol! I know murphys law right! I am looking forward to having this baby but worried about having the toddler at home as well!

    I bet you are counting down the days now, are you going to have a stretch and sweep to encourage labour or just go with the flow?

    Nope, I'm having an elective c-section so unless I go into labour early I'll have my bubby in my arms on Thursday next week!
