    I guess I'm lucky because no one has tried to touch me yet! I also haven't had any really inappropriate comments, so I'm kind of surprised that you guys are getting a lot of them...and at work! ...mostly I just see everyone's eyes focused on my belly, which before I announced I found pretty funny because I could see their minds ticking over, but them not wanting to ask! ...but, it's mainly just me noticing how my thighs etc are expanding...

    Lindsay - I think I started packing it on at about 20 weeks...it's my own fault since I've been stress-eating with the best of them, but I'm also constantly starving... Fingers crossed you are one of the lucky ones...

    tommi - I too am worried about what I'm going to have to do later to shift the extra kgs... DD was 2 before I got back to my Pre-baby weight, am hoping it won't take that long this time!

    by the way, is anyone else completely exhausted? I'm about to start taking some extra iron to see if that helps...

    I have one lady at work who constantly touches me waiting for him to move, I eventually told her that unless she is willing to come sleep with me lol it probably won't happen!! She hasn't touched me since! On a funny note has anyone noticed their lil ones are moving more to certain songs? Mine is constant moving to the Pinacolada song bahaha

    I would never in a million years touch someone else's belly (unless it was someone close to me and they had asked me if I wanted to), so I completely do not understand all these people! Good response Hoots

    hoots, your bubs must be a bit of a groover

    Happy weekend everyone

    Everyone's nurseries sound brilliant...DH is still in the process of prepping/painting ours. I'm now slightly more confident that it might actually be finished by the time bub arrives

    Pilbara where did you get the Curious George decal? I love CD, he was one of my favourite books as a child and I just ordered a set for my niece for Xmas!

    Hi sounds like everyone is well and nurseries sound great.

    Mum leaves at the end of this week. She has polished my place top to toe. Done stuff I'd want to get done and stuff id never worry about. But means less strain on me and less chance of overdooing it and having more bleed ... and means more incubating time for baby!.

    Im almost relieved im just using decals and not painting babys room. ive gone more little girl thsn baby too. I have flower and butterfly decals all tying in with our primary rainbow colours. (No rainbows, just those colours!!)
    All linen and clothes washed (thanks nanny). Hung and folded. :thumbup:
    Dh has had the big furniture set up for months but has unpacked and put together all the little things, rocker, bassinet, mobile etc and the whole nursery is pretty much complete with him being home this weekend. The pram is now set up too. Only car seat to go in which he can do next fortnight when he's home again. :thumbup:

    Being due so early in Jan, I want to be all set up and enjoy xmas. that and limited dh time home and that dreaded premmie risk. I don't want to be doing baby prep at all in December. Its pre xmas festive season month!!

    Wow im at that point where im amazed daily by the tossing, turning movements, seriously weird and distorted belly lumps (sometimes small so I think knee or foot, sometimes large and I think bum!), shes strong at pushing outward, rolling waves across my belly and all sirts of strange things.

    I cannot wait to meet my baby girl. And as you guys would understand, I cannot explain the bond and love I have for her already.

    I am back to uncomfortable sleping and find my back ribs are now aching only when im on my side. Makes for hours of tossing and turning.
    Dh said this morning I make alot of groans, sighs, aahhhs, constant tossing ..... deep nose breathing and snoring. Poor buggar is probably looking forward to going back to work to get some sleep.
    Id say once nanny leaves I'll just move myself to the spare room for his next few home stints.

    He's based working from home from last week of nov and all december excl. 1week and then home for a 5 week block from xmas eve and a 4 week block from mid feb. Its gonna be great to have so much bonding time with baby.

    Good morning all! How was everyones weekend?

    We had a productive yet tiring weekend. Best part no socialising or visitors yay! haha

    Sunshinebell sounds like you are all set with the nursery! YAY! it was so hot yesterday that we could only do one coat of the gloss paint on the windowframe/doors etc in the nursery - looks like I will be giving it another coat tonight. CANNOT wait till the painting is over with! only 2 more coats and I am done YAY! haha. DH is doing the cot and things so i can just relax and decorate now woohoo. So great that your DH is going to be home for such a long period, you are a superstar I dont know what I would do if my DH was away even for a night, especially while I am pregnant.

    Happy monday! at work only 12 weeks of work left till maternity leave yay! counting down counting down

    Petri has been kicking up a storm the last 2.5 days, he is wild but i wouldnt change it for the world, makes me feel so much less anxious knowing and feeling that he is there. in the last 20 minutes i have felt him move and kick about 10 times! oh make that 11! haha .

    Got to go, sorry this post is written poorly very rushed. Will be back a bit later on

    Sounds like Nanny has been very helpful Sunshinebell! I would love for someone to come in and give my house a big clean (I am secretly considering hiring someone to come in and do it, but I haven't mentioned it to DH yet. It feels so lazy, but I just can't seem to move beyond this tiredness, and just vacuuming leaves me wiped out) ...AND I see by your signature that you only have 12 weeks to go! ...that has snuck up on me somehow, must be awesome to be on the home stretch

    tommi - how are you coping with still being at work? ...only 12 weeks to go? You must finish up right around Christmas?.. How long do you plan to be off for, or is that undecided?

    AFM - nothing much new here, I've started taking iron supplements to see if that makes me feel better, and yesterday I made a huge pot of vegetable soup to have for lunches in the hope that I can slow down this weight gain a little... I've also been having loads of Braxton Hix contractions, which is kind of strange We still haven't got as far as collapsing the spare bed in what will be bub's room, so no real baby's room preparations going on yet...best we get onto that soon! Had a cuddle of my DH's brand new grandson on Saturday (he was born on Thursday)....such a little cutie! Babies babies everywhere

    hope everyone is going well! Xx

    Morning Pilbara! I am going ok at work, getting tired but otherwise ok, things may change in the lead up to christmas (which I said I would work through...oops) Thankfully my position is corporate so not too much physical work but i will say mentally I am not as onto things as i normally am. I am finishing on Jan 10th, I am probably being overly hopeful that I can keep going until 14 days before Petri is due but I figured over christmas will be lovely and quiet and this gives my work LOADS of notice to find a replacement. We are looking at me having 10 months off so returning In October at this stage. I may decide to take more time (unlikely I would take less haha) it will just depend. I am hoping to return to uni June next year also so it might be good to come back to work in order to use my breaks to get some assignment work done haha. Should be interesting I thought it was hard working fulltime and studying part time, add mr petri and i may have to do some rethinking lol.

    I also understand the being tired, too tired for housework thing. I cleaned on Sunday then painted and not even painted very much and I had to sleep on sunday afternoon. gone are the days I could do it all hahaha. I have contacted a local cleaner as I want my oven cleaned and my windows - two things I cannot do atm. that said I cleaned my glass sliding doors on the weekend as I could not stand the grubby hand marks on it any longer haha (we had visitors with little children last week) I dont think it is lazy at all - we have to do what is best for us and our family.

    I know this is a weird suggestion Pilbara but I started drinking milo (as suggested by the midwife) along with my elevit which contains iron and I felt alot better for it, less tired. Maybe that could help? Milo is high in iron apparently. YAY better than eating loads of broccoli and dried apricots hahaha
