Emmsy's ladies - 4 years of weebling - still going strong!(996 Posts)
Here's to us ladies! Proud to be part of this - onwards and upwards..
Back at work today (boo) but it's Friday (yay!)
LBM so lovely to hear your DH was chilled out over the hols, long may it continue
4ever - eep! such fantastic news, keeping everything tightly crossed for nuchal fold scan xx
moon what a year you've had . Sometimes life just throws us a curve ball but jeez you have had more than your fair share of them. The work situation sounds dreadful, you are right to get away from it and I can see how the laptop dying was literally the last straw. So hope you can get some funding for IVF, it seems such a postcode lottery with all the restrictions. Man if ANYONE deserves a break in 2013 its you and your DH, keep the faith, change what you can, accept what you can't and stay united and strong xx
I meant to say in my last post that I received a lovely box of chocolates and DVD for the boys from Mumsnet HQ before Christmas having received an email from them in November to say I had been nominated by a fellow Mnetter as someone who had given support even though they were having a tough time. As this is the only thread I'm on, it must have been one of you so THANK YOU and I feel very humbled and honoured and am sharing all my choccies with you all as we all have our shite to deal with yet we all come here to support each other.
Long may it continue!
Just a quick one from me to give Moon a hug. Really sorry for everything you are going through and truly hope it turns around for you.
Another yay for 4ever too.
Sorry. Not up to a long post. My skin thing is really bad. It's everywhere and sooo itchy. Docs now think it might be viral which means there's no treatment. Not sure how much longer I can cope.
Will be back when I'm less itchy. Love to all.
Oh neeko you must be going mad with the itching . I know you probably looked into it but is there any alternative holistic medicine you can take or cream you can use? It sounds so utterly awful. I know how I felt when I had my itchy lower back but to have it all over must be excrutiating .
Wish I could give you a link to a miracle cure xx
Af has arrived so unfortunately all your wishes of a Christmas baby for us are dashed I'm afraid DH seems really gutted this cycle.
Neeko Hope you can sort your rash out soon, itching 24/7 is horrible
Oh buddha that is so crap I'm really sorry to hear that.. So unfair. Everything xd these tests shed some light on things...
Poor neeko too, sounds awful, could it be an allergy?
Hi to blue how lovely & deserving u are of the MN chocs! Wish I could take the credit, cos if I knew Mn did such a thing I would of, you are always there with kind words of wisdom for us all..
Rumours how are you really doing at the moment? I've thought of you often since you said how much you've been struggling, and you've not said anything since? Did you get some support? How's DS2 assessment going too? Remember we're here for you fellow weeble..
Sorry 4ever will try and come back later for an update xx
Hey rumours whenever you're ready hon, just checking in that you're ok?!
My anxiety is peaking right now about nuchal scan tomorrow, all the worries about nuchal fold size after our 3rd baby, plus downs odds, and worrying if all its bits and pieces are present and correct where they should be, as well as is it even still ok?!?!? Please god.... Been a bit achey & twingey so that adds to the paranoia, probably all a bit accentuated by the fact its 7yrs since lost my Ddad today... Dunno where the times gone... Subconciously adding to the downheartedness I'm sure... Roll on tomorrow... Its 4pm so as usual please send your positive thoughts our way... I'm convinced it helps!
4ever at your DDad's anniversay. He will be looking down squeezing your hand for tomorrow. Will be sending every positive thought for a good nuchal scan and general check up xx
Rumours you have been quiet honey, hope all OK.
neeko hope your new skin spray is continue to work x
Benj started his ante-pre school this morning, a baby no more I enjoyed the silence, it was just me, my ironing and Ken Bruce on Radio 2 #oldfart
Aah blue my lovely ds1 starts playgroup tomorrow, he'll be going 2 mornings a week..part of me can't wait, the other part is so sad that it's the end of his babyhood! how did B get on?
4ever I came on to give my hand and best wishes for tomorrow..I'm sure everything will be just fine my lovely. You've got a fighter in there!
blue Aw, lovely to hear that you enjoyed the peace It's funny - as DD2 goes to daycare all the time, we don't really have that starting nursery milestone. However the day she stops doing every poo in her pants could be that milestone for me. She's going to Grandmas for a holiday next wseek and Grandma is delighted about the poo - not
4ever Thinking about all 4 of you tomorrow - hoping for more good news. Sure the twinges are just twinges and you've had your nuchal fold bad luck already xxx Stay calm lady - let S distract you. Try some biscuit making and eating
Thank you girlys... Love you all... I've been keeping busy but now everythings done and I'm at anxiety central... Mix between dementedly rocking & on my knees praying...
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Baby is doing just fine!!! Everything where it should be and functioning well! Even heard its lovely strong heartbeat which was beautiful music to our ears! Nuchal fold small and downs odds low, thank god! Oh, and they moved me forward again am now 13w4d!
<whispers> also found something lovely out we didn't expect to find out so early...
As always thank you for the positive thoughts and prayers and well wishes, I just know it helps and means so so much to me... Love you all xxxx
Yay fab news
And what did you find out? Share!
Hope everyone else is well
4ever Hope you are shaking off that sand out of your hair brilliant news, you didn't say on your text that you'd got other news Come on spill!
4ever is most firmly up the duff!! The most fantastic news ever - so so so pleased for you all honey.
Now, since she isn't telling, I think we need to guess on what else she found out - I'm guessing that she's shopping for blue babygro's ? what about anyone else?
And when is your due date? July sometime?
Ahhh! Tx you both back already sabs & buddha but won't leave you other lovelies hanging! Yes, very very when the lovely sonographer turned round at the end of the highly emotional scan, where Id double checked every detail with her(!) and cried like a baby with relief, and asked if we wanted to know what it was! Totally didn't expect to hear it, or even think we could find out so early but yes, apparently you can! Apparently the genitals are the same size at this many wks but a girls point down and a boys point up!
Obviously its not 100%, so DH initially didn't want to say anything to anyone, but agreed to tell our mums and his dad only for now... So we have our next scan forever away at 17wks, ( thank god for rumours doppler! ) and I will reveal all then!
Ha Ha x post Lbm!!! Ahh bless you my lovely! Thank you so much!
Must say its so very heartwarming and humbling how happy and excited everyone is for us! Very touching indeed... <wipes eye>
Yes edd went from 24th July to now 15th July! As i said to Sabs RESULT!
oh 4ever that's just FABULOUS news . If we all stood outside just now you could probably very quietly hear us all sighing with relief and eek! another pink one, just lovely. Summer will be absolutely over the moon and you can match them in their winter coats - too cute!
What great news to start the weekend.
Sabs hope you're keeping well too my lovely xx
Waves and to everyone else oh and Happy Birthday Barbie. We miss you! xx
Ahh thanks blue ! But, errrr, no revelations from us yet my lovely as i said in last post! In another 3&1/2 wks ill reveal all!
I was very quiet and think I heard your sigh of relief you sweet soul!
Massive Happy Birthday to Barbie too!
Wooohoooo!!!!! 4ever's having a baybee
I have been lurking for absolutely ages but I haven't posted cos I was worried about jinxing things. I know that sounds mad but I've posted before and then it has all gone wrong. So I'm really sorry for my prolonged absence but I am just so so pleased for you.
[I'm betting on a boy btw]
I can't promise to post lots as things are mad but when I get a chance I will try and do a proper catch up.
Big hugs and waves to all the other lovely emmsys xxxx
Doh! I mis-read your post in all the excitement 4ever I thought the her you were referring to was DD2 but it was the sonographer <slaps forehead>. Ooh now I'm thinking a boy, a wee Teddy bear of a boy
Hey louey <waves> how are your gorgeous boys?
