Thread 9

Shiny new thread. Welcome all those due to pop out a baby in March 14, whether you're an old hand or a newbie, come join the fun!

Saggy it's so good to hear from you. Please don't feel like you're lowering the thread! Far from it. I'm so pleased for you that you are continuing the pregnancy. You're going to be great x

commsgirl Wed 25-Sep-13 21:22:54

Saggy lovely to hear from you. Keep talking to us whenever you want, don't you dare worry about lowering the thread! You're going to be brilliant x

IceNoSlice Wed 25-Sep-13 21:23:49

Just me then <twiddles thumbs>

Beccadugs Wed 25-Sep-13 21:34:08

Thinking of you saggy as everyone has said you and your baby are Martians so this is where you belong!

Prambo Wed 25-Sep-13 21:37:41

Saggy, you are an inspiration and such a strong lady. I'm so pleased you're finding strength and friends on that other thread. You will never bring us down with news of your lovely baby. Wishing you peace xx

Thanks, girls, for house cheerings. Was it BWP who mentioned the missing kitchen drawers? I'm on it. I can't cope with a shoddy kitchen with the amount of time I spend cooking, so that's really important to me.

Can't wait to see you tomorrow, RockChick. You enjoying your anniversary evening? wink

Gawjus, I just can't get you out of my head. Remember, won't you, that we are your friends and will never judge you thanks

PiratesMam Wed 25-Sep-13 21:45:09

Ice cheers for sorting out thread ten. TEN! 9 went in a flash, I don't think I read half of it!

Saggy Have read your other thread and glad you came back to update us on here too, thank you. You and your baby are still Martians and like the others have said, we are here through the good and bad. Thinking of you xx

Thank you. You have all made me cry! blush
Anyway, just getting on the new thread so I don't lose you...

Prambo Wed 25-Sep-13 21:59:00

Thinking of you, too, today, Imeg thanks

OwlinaTree Wed 25-Sep-13 22:13:28

saggy glad you are back. I had a little cry too, glad you are staying with us.

I'm not on the fb page gawjus but hope you are OK.

I haven't watched this home birthing video but are the children really called horse and tree? I did a pre natal yoga class last time which was great for teaching you moves to do for an active birth, sadly I was induced so movement v limited in the end! I'd definatly recommend the yoga tho if you are interested in active birth.

IceNoSlice Wed 25-Sep-13 22:14:40

Hmmm think I was a bit premature with the 'nearly halfway' bit. If the threads continue to move as fast as they have done, we won't hit 20 weeks on this thread. Oh well, I did say 'nearly'.

I worked from home today sitting on my exercise ball all day. My back feels great! I defo recommend!

BionicEar Wed 25-Sep-13 22:28:52

Saggy, you have made one of the hardest decisions ever in your life, but from what you have shared, I know that this baby has been blessed with you and your family, and what a lucky child that is to have people who are going to love, protect and fight his/her corner.

Yes it's not the journey that you imagine you would take with this baby, but this baby will bless your life.

Stay with us, share your ups and downs, allow us to be part of yours and your extra special baby's journey.

It doesn't matter what the diagnostic is, this baby is still wanted, much like the rest of the Martians babies, and you belong here with us.

liberuna Wed 25-Sep-13 22:39:24

Saggy so happy to have you back

Pram congratulations on new place, its so hard to find somewhere that ticks all the right boxes. Well done.

Im 2 for 2 on gender guesses. Can't wait for mine but it's not till the end of October sad

16+2 and still no movement. Lots of pains and stretches though so I guess that means I'm still pregnant?

Rockchick1984 Wed 25-Sep-13 22:45:05

Well, back from my romantic evening - so stuffed full of curry and onion bhajis its ridiculous! And yes, have enjoyed the evening very much twice

Hope Gaw is ok, just seen all the stuff on fb sad

Pram looking forward to tomorrow, will make sure I have cake in!!

Saggy you don't bring the thread down, everyone on here will go through something negative at some point and I know you would be one of the first to offer comfort - that works both ways!

Not watching the poo-birth video, I was paranoid enough about not wanting to poo when I was in labour last time (DH assures me I didn't) so seeing that would terrify me!

commsgirl Wed 25-Sep-13 22:45:26

Lib you're definitely still pregnant smile

Ice I think I need an exercise ball. Might look a hit odd in the office though!

I can't believe we're on thread nine and April are only on two!

Liberuna its not unknown to feel nothing until 20 weeks first time round, don't worry. My placenta is at the front, and I haven't felt anything yet, and I know from the recent scans that baby is definitely having a party in there! 16 weeks tomorrow. Just be patient. My PG app says that at first its very soft and gentle like the stroke of a fishes tail. I'd say from experience that that is spot on and very easy to miss.

Do we have FB? How did I miss that? May I join please?

PainAuxRaisins Wed 25-Sep-13 23:03:30

Glad you're back Saggy - send a msg to Greymoose and she can add you to FB. Hope Gawj is ok too.

commsgirl Wed 25-Sep-13 23:04:09

Saggy just l send greymoose a message with your Facebook link and she'll sort you out smile

Prambo Wed 25-Sep-13 23:04:49

Saggy, I've forgotten how you join, sweetheart, but it's summat to do with GreyMoose. You PM her your fb link, I fink.

Rock, your house better not smell of sex...wink

Bionic, your post to Saggy was beautiful and just what I wanted to say.

AbiBub Wed 25-Sep-13 23:40:49

JK10 Thu 26-Sep-13 00:42:16

gawjus hope all okay.

saggy so pleased your back.

pram fab house news, looks great.

Your all gonna hate me! Can't believe so many of you love eating blue steaks and butcher shops! I'm a veggie! Used to be a barmaid and my stomach would turn when ppl ordered blue steak baguettes!! The bread would turn pink, awwww! Saying that though my 4 kids and DP are meat eaters and I cook it for them every night just can't bring myself to actually touch it and cutting it raw makes me heave!

JK10 Thu 26-Sep-13 00:42:55

Oh and I hate incompetent builders.

MummyPig24 Thu 26-Sep-13 01:00:16

saggy I'm glad you are staying with us. It's a tough decision to make but I'm glad you have made it. You are an amazing woman!
