Have taken Bealcain off as I think she has moved to the June thread and added those that know the flavour they are having, does anyone else know yet?

MissChika Wed 13-Feb-08 14:42:15

My current craving is milk - arglllarggghh (sound that homer simpson makes when thinking of doughuts)

MrsHOP Wed 13-Feb-08 14:54:04

Thanks kitty!

was just about to exclaim that myself - there are tons of us, how fab!

Chika, I have just waded back through the messages (we're a right chatty bunch today) and found your link to nappy lady - Nunhead is perfect for me! well done you, I haven't got anywhere with the lewisham council peeps... have you set up to get email in your email options, and we can arrange meeting up? I am taking my mum to a crochet workshop this sat so can't do it if that is the date but will make sure I am free any other time!

The bagel monster xx

EEC Wed 13-Feb-08 15:19:26

milk and cereal of all sorts - yum yum - ooh and toast.

MissChika Wed 13-Feb-08 15:33:54

MrsH - will find out when the next session is and let you know. I haven't set up email on this site yet but will do and I'll email you the details.

EEC - I actually haven't had any cereal (as I generally don't eat it) but I have been thinking about crunchy nut cornflakes for a while now and often find myself lurking in the cereal aisle. Haven't quite managed to buy any yet though!

Any food will do!!! Mostly chocolate though....also started to like porridge and I hated it before! Also peanut butter on digestive buscuits when I'm waiting for other food to be ready....sounds yuch eh?

grin love the new thread xx

pigleychez Wed 13-Feb-08 19:06:43

Hi everyone!

Love the new thread. Im so glad everyone else is feeling the same about food. Thought it was just me - Pigley by name pig by nature!

im not fussy though- any food will do! Usually anything bad and junk though!
Favourite quick fix food is Honey on toast..yummy!!

Also anyone else found they are drinking more too? Ive suddenly turned into a fish!
Just had dinner and in the space of about 30 mins ive just had 2 bottles of J2o and a tall glass of Ribena! So unlike me as i would usually go all day with only a glass of coke/squash and the occasionally cuppa.

Wow! what a long list!

cass66 Wed 13-Feb-08 20:31:40

all this talk about food. got on the scales tonight - the girls wanted to weigh themselves after their bath so I joined in. BIG MISTAKE, don't do it! have put on loads of weight. thought I'd stopped eating quite so much now the nausea has settled. bugger.

especially as I went round tesos buying lots of indulgent valentines food this morning, Gu choc brownies, danish pastries, ice cream. even some pink cava. bugger. once I get over this initial shock I'll resign myself to fat clothes and weight watchers again after July. bugger.

Min912 Wed 13-Feb-08 21:43:54

Had a bit of a shock this morning - walking round the car with de-icer spray, slipped on frosty brick drive and went down, bang, on my left knee - owwwwwww. Kind of lay there crying in shock til some random passer-by helped me up, then felt a bit silly. Absolutely no risk to the bump, just a shock to my system! Now have nice bruise/graze combo coming up. Hopefully good for sympathy if nothing else...

Plus DH is still off work with flu, and in his confusion he left the hazard lights on his car all night, battery is now totally flat. Lovely childminder has lent us a charger as we couldn't even jump it. Sigh!! Trying not to be too angry with him...

Happy news though, had a midwife appt yesterday (delayed from last week when I just plain forgot to go) and I heard the heartbeat, very reassuring. I am 17 weeks now and haven't really felt much movement, but then last time the placenta was in front and that muffles it.

Re cloth nappies, I used www.makesachange.co.uk but then shopped around for price comparisons as well. Now he's got bigger we've pretty much stuck with whambamboozles or whatever they are called these days, they are made from bamboo, would totally recommend (but we do use Moltex biodegradable disposables overnight as life is just too short to risk nappy changes in the middle of the night in otherwise good sleeper baby). Not sure if it's how I wash them (40 degrees, non-bio liquid) but I wouldn't sell them on, they come out clean but kind of a bit stained!! Perhaps it's DS's toxic poop...

I so was trying to justify a stokke sleepi, then we got given a (standard) cot for free. Gift horses and all that... ah well, will still get P&T, can spend the rest on... me!

Yey for ScottishSusan, great news.

Valentine's - am off to the big smoke alone tomorrow night to see the Strictly Come Dancing live show with a school friend. Yep, nothing says romance like straight men in sequins and fake tan!!

purplejennyrose Wed 13-Feb-08 21:59:36

Hi all
Scottishsusan, slightly belatedly - what a relief, and great great news!!
Foooood!! Am eating everything constantly at the mo..Hot choc with marshmallows is good at 11.30pm
And still my bump expands at a ridiculous rate - at 19 weeks I've just grown out of a pair of mat trousers..hmm my tummy button is disappearing and soon I won't be able to see my feet..
My dd knows that mummy has a baby in her tummy, and on Sun she pointed to my tummy, got her toy phone, held it up to her ear, and said ' helloo, baby, helloo, it's rosy'... how cute!! She knew she'd been cute, sat there grinning from ear to ear.

JODIEhavingababy Thu 14-Feb-08 08:46:04

Morning,

How is everyone today? I'm shattered! I had some REALLY vivid dreams last night, but not of the nice variety, they were horrible. I kept waking up, then mulling them over and couldn't drift back off to te land of nod! I suppose I better be careful what I wish for next time sad

Purplejennyrose - how cute, I bet you were grinning too! My DS just keeps jumping on me, I have to be really careful, but sometimes I forget.

My bump is getting quite big now, but still on the flabby side, but getting harder. I'm definatly not as big as I was last time, and I'm still in some of my old clothes, although they are my 'fat clothes' and I can't do up the top button!

I can't wait until my scan, just get the holiday out of the way and it will be here!

I'm sorry if this is a long post, but feeling abit of a chatterbox today

shortshafe Thu 14-Feb-08 11:09:03

morning all - lovely new thread!

so glad everyone else is eating like mad too - I'm on 2 choc bars a day again blush!

When's your scan Jodie? Mines not till 4th March and seems ages away! Have consultant appointment on 26th Feb as had em cs last time. I've just rescanned the list and I work where you live!!!! How exciting! What hospital are you under? Or do you get to go to the lovley midiwfe led place near you? Or even better at home?! envy.

JODIEhavingababy Thu 14-Feb-08 11:19:50

My scan's not until the 13th March, I will be 22+2 by then, I had to rebook due to my holiday, but I'm hoping it might be a bit clearer to see what sex it is! grin

I'm booked in at the Samuel Johnson, the lovely midwife place, I had DS at the Vic (in the birthing pool), but they knocked it down shortly after and built this one, haven't been to look round yet, but everyone says how lovely it is and it's still the same staff. Fingers crossed it all goes to plan. I thought about home, but then I'd need to tidy up! shock

Where abouts are you then?

MrsHOP Thu 14-Feb-08 11:20:02

Morning all

It must have been all this food talk, I dreamt of warm croissants last night! mmmmmmm

NikNakF Thu 14-Feb-08 12:29:55

Oh gosh I had toast for brekkie (2) and croissant for midmorning and now for MORE, yum!

I am awful, hope Valentines dinner tonight is BIG portions!!

Speaking of which, Happy Valentines Day all

MissChika/MrsHOP - if you get any nappy info I'd be interested as considering the idea. Also, jsut sorting out antenatal classes as our area is really booked up - have you sorted yours out? Can I ask where you are delivering (PM me if you'd rather). Are you guys going to the baby show? I think I'm going on the 1st (sat) March... Should be interesting, though have been through the wedding shows etc before, madness!

Jodie - I have horrific nightmares at the moment, mainly about baby but also about DH etc. UGH!

Min - are you feeling better?

Oh can I be added to the list? 1st baby due 8/7/8 x

shortshafe Thu 14-Feb-08 12:31:28

mmmm Mrs Hop - I've been day dreaming about bacon and egg sarnies all morning!

Jodie - I live in Uttoxeter, so not far from you at all. I work on Eastern Avenue - can't reveal more on open forum as far too identifying!!!! Not that I work for MI5 or anything. I'm booked in at Burton Queens, wold have loved to go to the Samuel Johnson, however am classed as high risk. Great.

Does anyone on here facebook or is that too personal a question? I've recently discovered it and think its great!

emmy6781 Thu 14-Feb-08 12:31:45

Afternoon everyone!
I am so hungry this can not be normal! I keep eating and eating and eating! Anything that comes my way I just can't help myself! I am trying to just eat good things like fruit but that sucs! I want chips with cheese, runny eggs! and chocolate! help I'm gonna end up a fat as a house!!!!

JODIEhavingababy Thu 14-Feb-08 12:38:53

STOP TALKING ABOUT FOOD... I'm starving! grin (then again I'm always starving!)

Shortshafe - I'm a Pampered Chef consultant and I've doen a fair few parties over in Uttoxeter! (in fact I'm over that way tomorrow night.) It's nice there.. And yes I'm on Facebook I think it's brill too!
