Wow jeannie !! Thanks for the pic! you scored! They are gorgeous. I will definitely check them out. Hope you can run fast from DH with those on!
Yes I feel funny getting maternity clothes so early... I think I'm going with dresses if I can as the summer here is total punishment. Wish - you are all over it with the maxis. Got to get something for work though... Not feeling the earth mother vibe yet.
Is anyone dying their hair right now? I have not done it since before embryo transfer and I'm starting to look like Mrs Crabtree the old lady who drives the bus on South Park ... A bit scared of pouring chemicals over my head during first trimester.... Apparently henna is quite toxic also I discovered. Keen to avoid all those things if possible. My toes need a paint but holding off on those too.
thanks Nirok I rechecked my due date on the ivf calculator and now it's may 7 instead of may 8 - an odd number, gah, thanks for that

For once I'm looking forward to the weather getting a little warmer - then I can resume my usual wardrobe of dresses with 3/4 leggings. Wondering how I'm going to go about shaving my legs with a belly in the way later on though
Butterfly I haven't dyed my hair since starting the ivf cycle either. Thankfully my latest colour is blending fairly well with the natural roots coming through, but it is noticeable to me at least! I actually need to go to the hairdresser to get a decent amount taken off because my ends are quite dry and split, but even walking past them in the shopping centre makes me gag with the smell still
Ihave two hairdresser friends who assured me that the amount of chemicals used dying your hair is extremely minimal and wouldnt be enough to be that far absorbed, too affect bubs. Doc also backed this up, so I got mine done at about 6 weeks. But each to their own
Butterfly I totally agree on the work stuff with Maxi's. Many of the girls here wear them regularly and Ive always been hesitant. Might give it a go with a cute crop jacket to dress it up.
As for work heels I might need to give these up, I swear my feet never used to hurt this much before being UTD. Looks like this shortie will be getting shorter and wearing flats!
I'm a shortie too ... Re heels I was reading that a small heel was best for pregnancy spine ergonomic stuff but can't really imagine dealing with anything but flats.
im sure you are right Arlais about the hair thing ...I'm probably just being paranoid, as per usual ...
Another shortie here! I've only worn very small heels since BFP, but usually I'm in flats or a small wedge anyway - definitely won't be attempting any of my "stripper" heels for a long time yet
I'm lucky that my workplace is reasonably casual. We can only wear jeans on Fridays, but during the week I wear most of the same tops I would on weekends, just with work pants or skirts. I tend to have a bit of a hippy style anyway, so breaking out the maxis won't be at all unusual for me
Arlais - Im already having trouble with my work skirts and pants. Im so bloated that someone asked me the other day if I was UTD. I said I just like to eat.
So I had my scan and bub is looking like a little alien but apparently thats perfect. Get my Panorama/Harmony test results in two weeks which cant go quick enough.
Butterfly I havent dyed my hair since ET. I think I look horrid but my DH says its fine. I am waiting till after my 13 week scan and then i will probably do it.
Sorry for the Rant post but my brother (whom I havent spoken to in over 5 years) and his wife have just announced they are due just a week before me!! Im so devastated they've stolen my thunder and that my mum didnt care to mention it and I had to hear it through a friend!!
Usually if my mum doesn't tell me something about my sister, she thinks she is protecting me somehow. I've actually got a sneaking suspicion my sis is UTD with #5 - which I really won't be impressed about if it turns out to be true - she announced she was pregnant with #4 a week after I got engaged. I basically feel like I can't do anything special without her getting knocked up to get some of that attention back
