Mmm, I'd forgotten most of the really fun bits of pregnancy, so it's nice of you to remind me - cramps, random aches, nosebleeds (are you having nosebleeds?), braxton hicks, one foot lodged under the rib cage for hours at a time, less sleep than you get with a newborn...

(It is 8th week and I know this only because we're seeing Jon on friday)

Incidentally, I never did tell you my name idea (about as serious as unsolicited advice should be); you know how McK names for girls are really trendy right now? McKinley, McKenna, McKayla, McKenzie and so on. Well, you could name her McKnight. Throw in daddy's Batchelor name and she'll sound like not just one lawyer but a whole firm!

More usefully, we have a car seat of the right sort which we're not using, and can lend you. I can leave it with Jon at the weekend, if that's helpful for you.

Ooh - if you're really not using it (ie not likely to need it in the near future - I'm not due till April 3rd) then that would be brilliant! Thank you!

You (singular or plural) would be welcome to pop round at the weekend but I warn you it's going to be a bit frantic here - we have an antenatal class, a man coming round to put shelves up, Owen's parents visiting on Saturday & a friend visiting on Sunday ... no I don't know how this is going to work, I think I will just sit on the sofa with a mug of hot chocolate & hold court while people come and go. ;)

Ah, hang on, people in Oxford have also offered me car seats -- probably easier than you lugging it all the way from Cambridge! So thank you for the offer but probably won't need it after all. You're still welcome to pop in at the weekend if you want anyway. :-)

No nosebleeds (so far - touch wood!) or braxton hicks ... I'm actually rather hoping for braxton hicks as it'd be good to have a bit more clue what contractions might feel like! But I gather not everybody gets them...

you could name her McKnight

*giggle*

Hopefully you'll skip the nosebleeds. After all, you had much much worse nausea than I did it doesn't seem fair you'd get all the other symptoms too. I didn't get BH with B, but did with J.

We would love to see you, but I think we're only in Oxford long enough to eat dinner, we're staying in Banbury this time.
