Here's to us ladies! Proud to be part of this - onwards and upwards..

moonmrs Mon 13-Aug-12 20:14:25

Ooh this is like one of those books where you have to choose different options to find the right ending grin Just marking my place.

Have a stinking cold sad so grumpy and fed up, but its distracting me from symptom spotting as everything is achy. Snuggled up with lemon and honey and Eastenders!

May this be a lucky thread for all those ttc smile

4everhopeful Mon 13-Aug-12 20:38:41

I second that Moon, will speak for Buddha too who I know will third it! Hope you feel better soon moon (your immune system is meant to lower when pregnant so tis a possible symptom! Soooo hope so! grin)

Shall blame my scatty thread misdemeanor on being at sixes and sevens cos my poor ikkle bubba banged her head and had her first ever horrific golf ball size bump erupt in the space of 2milliseconds... shock sad Brave little soldier sobbed for a few minutes, til I got Abney and Teal on to distract her (good old sky +) and I tried my hardest to act calm and reassuring whilst freaking out inside! confused She seems fine thank god, was literally just before dinner, which she went on to eat, and has been prancing around happily since thank god, albeit with this almighty egg on her forehead which she seems oblivious too! Cor, my heart was going as I watched it come up though, but we are past 2hrs and def no sign of sleepiness, which for once, I'm absolutely embracing! confused smile

Thank you smile once I'm past the snotty stage I'll be fine, its just very inconvenient when it drips down your nose like water (yuck tmi sorry!) Oh is it, I didnt realise that, that would make total sense - the last 2 times I've been pregnant I've also been ill in some way - you learn something new every day.

Aww poor little S, relieved to hear she sounds like shes ok, if shes eating and is lively then thats a good sign. Tough little cookies arent they.

Moon and 4ever we are all far too alike! I have done bin raids, squinting, checking and rechecking, convincing myself that there is a line all the time knowing that it was a crock of sh*t sad Also the pre-pg vitamins I finally gave up taking a couple of months ago, although continuing with the folic acid for a little while longer.
Neeko One more day to squeeze out the last bit of fun of the holidays before your return to work on Wednesday, hope it's not as bad as you think it might be smile
Barbie Have a fantastic time in Disney and with your friends, will look forward to more FB pics.

I had a +ve OV test yesterday so had to dtd with a hangover confused first time I've been proper full on drunk in well over a year (oops diet) but I had a lovely time at a friends bbq, I even decided it would be good fun to get in her swimming pool fully dressed and with my Iphone in my bra sad needless to say the phone is sat in a box of rice and I''m praying every night to the god of Iphones that it will work again (but really not holding my breath) Good job I don't get that drunk too often blush

OK reposted my last one from the other thread, hope you feel better soon Moon and hope S's head is all better now 4ever

evening all - just marking my place. ladieswhoareworkingonmakingbabies I'd like a quartet of bfp's actually asa there are 4 very deserving ladies who need a bundle of slobber, pooh and utter loveliness to cuddle. This month / thread is for you.

we just got back from the most amazing weeks camping in northumberland - not a drop of rain and the most beautiful setting. Can't decide if we need to go back every year or never again!!

Will be back for personals later in the week - currently buried in the washing mountain like all the others! rumours need your help with the crocheting. DD1 and I tried to teach ourselves to crochet on holiday and I think we need some help!!

Thanks 4ever love the title, just marking my spot smile

Let this thread be full of Bfp's and growIng bumps, holding hands and happy scans. A feel a new batch of cyber nieces/nephews on the horizon smile

Back from Center Parcs, fab time other than huge midgie bites on my legs, they couldn't resist my chubby cankles - damn them grin

Will post tomorrow as off work all week - yay!

Rumours Mon 13-Aug-12 22:48:10

Crocheting is great, it keeps your fingers out of the biscuit barrel grin

Thanks for starting the new thread 4ever

Buddha grin. Your escapades sound like a scene from an Amercian film - the party scene when someone always jumps in the pool! You party animal you! I'm a bit envy actually grin

Hope the I-phone recovers!

Rumours Mon 13-Aug-12 22:52:10

buddha ds2 threw our iPod into a bowl of dishwater, we put it into rice an on top of a radiator too, it's works ok now.

neeko thanks and I know I can text you anytime smile just weebling along.

cupcakefairy Tue 14-Aug-12 07:10:11

Fab new thread 4ever love the title. I too am back from hols & buried in washing and other jobs but will try to get back on for proper post later.. dh abandoning us for 4 days later in the week so I'm a bit confused

Have managed to add a couple of recent pics to profile as blue requested.. one of ds1 from our hols he had the absolute time of his life on the beaches. (oh & I think you'll all like what he's eating)

Catch you soon x

cupcakefairy Tue 14-Aug-12 07:10:35

Ooh wow this thread is so much faster on phone! Yay!

Monkeybumsmum Tue 14-Aug-12 07:54:16

Well done for starting a new thread 4ever grin As moon said, may this be a lucky thread for everyone...

Poor S 4ever, it's scary when they hurt themselves! Good to hear she's still smiling though smile

Random question - has anyone ever made chutney? Started making it yesterday afternoon, and it's taking SO long to reduce that I had to turn it off at about 11 last night to go to sleep! It's back on again this morning. Am sure I've done something wrong!

Have a good day all x

Monkeybumsmum Tue 14-Aug-12 07:56:05

cupcake gorgeous pics, just beautiful (and yum yum yum to the mini-milk!)

4everhopeful Tue 14-Aug-12 10:45:04

Yay love it when everyone posts! grin <<waves to all!>>

Doh, sorry monkey , as lbm correctly says its a quartet of bfp's we are needing! wink

Cupcake very gorgeous pics of your beautiful boys bless em! Exceptional taste in lollys young J has! grin

Monkeybumsmum Tue 14-Aug-12 16:54:29

It's okay, we need a real miracle for us to get another BFP. I wasn't offended, but thanks lbm grin

cupcakefairy Tue 14-Aug-12 20:26:15

Hi ladies! V quick hello sorry as we're about to have dinner and watch the British Bake-Off! grin Thanks for the lovely compliments about my boys... we need more updated pics please people! Haven't even seen barbie's baby H yet!

barbie have an amazing time at Disney! v jealous!

lbm holiday sounds amazing...know what you mean about never wanting to revisit though! smile

Hi monkey sorry I've never made chutney...dh makes jam sometimes but I don't pay much attention grin try the housekeeping threads?? Hope it worked out ok in the end anyway. And hey, this thread is full of miracles, you'll get yours.

rumours so sorry to hear of your worries with ds2 sad you sound so strong though. What's the latest? Do you have more appointments? Thinking of you.

Who's been looking at the 2011 baby name stats that have just come out?? Both my dss still in top 100, one in top 50 now, bah! But we don't know anyone else with ds2's name so I will pretend it is wrong grin

Gah, that was a rubbish post...I'm so sorry to dash but food needed!

moonmrs Wed 15-Aug-12 15:47:59

My cold turned into a full blown flu bug type thing sad I've been off work today and yesterday, mainly sleeping, I feel proper crap, I havent had a day off sick since the miscarriages. And to add insult to injury, af turned up this morning. My body certainly knows how to kick me when I'm down. So one last ditch attempt with the Clomid, keep your fingers and toes crossed for us.

Monkey I hadnt forgotten you, but I didnt know what stage you were at and if you were still ttc, I didnt want to assume anything, sorry if we upset you.

Neeko Wed 15-Aug-12 17:33:08

Just marking my place and shaking my fist at tew for moon

work was pants.

back later

4everhopeful Wed 15-Aug-12 17:49:32

Awww moon sad gutted for you, was really hoping (as I have each month) that this was the one, was thinking about you this morning funnily enough (in a non wierd way!) Absolutely rooting and praying for you now that this is day 1 of your pregnancy wink

Waves to Neeko, boo to work!

4everhopeful Wed 15-Aug-12 17:54:05

Btw - couldn't resist stupidly testing yesterday, on day 20 hmm <shakes head at self> obviously a bfn, will now be sensible and wait til fri at least, af not even due til next weds, I'm an idiot sometimes... confused

BuddhaBelly Wed 15-Aug-12 19:45:46

Moon So sorry she got you angry and when you are feeling poorly too sad
4ever Woman step away from the poas tut tut tut
Monkey So so sorry I missed you out sad blush I'm always guaranteed to put my foot in it in rl so I suppose it's the same here
cupcake Gorgeous pic smile
Blue I just wish I had the figure of someone from an american movie <sigh>

Day 4 of no phone seriously think I need to check into rehab, it's ridiculous how dependant I've become on it grin

BuddhaBelly Wed 15-Aug-12 19:46:28

Neeko Missed you! blush Work = pants. Hometime = smile

cupcakefairy Wed 15-Aug-12 19:48:10

Boo hiss to af and bfns sad sorry ladies.. but yes 4ever slap across the wrist for testing far too early grin

moon here's to last minute miracles wine
Just a wacky idea I'll throw out there as I'm sure you're willing to try anything but perhaps consider cutting out sugar completely for this last month? I've read lots about its connection to ovulation issues.. as I said, just a thought.

Right, back to putting ds1 back to bed <fed up>

mrsmoon damn AF angry, so sorry you're ill and off work too sad

I did hear some [happy] news yesterday which I hope brings hope and comfort, a girl I know (mutual friend we sat at same table at said friends wedding). Had been trying for a baby for 4 years, all investigations etc. failed IUI, successful IUI then early mc, first round of IVF and due twins in Oct. her and her DH watched family and friends expand their brood while they had to wring themselves out and start again but they never gave up. They only announced it this week as terrified of tempting fate.

4ever <stern look> step away from the POAS and keep busy, which with S shouldn't be hard smile

neeko the girl mentioned above is a teacher and today was her first day back and last day before may leave. What a day! First day back after 7 weeks hols must be pants. Hey it's Thurs tomor!

monkey. How were the flicks? Looking fwd to seeing the photos of you and barbie smile

cupcake your boys are delicious! Hope DS1 is sleepIng now. DS2 is all out of sorts after our weekend away, we are having to persuade him to like his room again as he stayed up with us and slept in same room <sigh>

Buddha any symptoms from you missy? How the heck ate you copIng with no phone?!

Waves to everyone else x
