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..
Welcome back barbie! Don't go running off again though! Come back and tell us what's been going on with you?! You might even lure some lurkers back to our super quiet thread!
Sabs nice to see you posting too! Know we've been in touch, but how exciting you're nearly half way there! Holiday sounds lovely! Really looking forward to our last one before the new addition too! Also with you on the huge bump already!
Where is everyone lately?!?!
Belated Burns night to our Scottish ladies!
Rumours how you doing lovely?
Buddha thinking of you too & hoping the tests went ok? When do you get results?
All ok here, my first hospital free week last week was stressful trying to sort the mortgage, first time without my wage in the equasion so lots of juggling required.. Thank god for the doppler keeping me sane! Finally seeing a consultant on wednesday, saw our lovely old consultant loads already by this stage with Summer, I miss him! His replacement is on maternity leave herself so its all been a bit up in the air i think, was meant to see a consultant day after my booking in, but ended up with a hard faced registraar after a 2hr wait - was not impressed, anyway have a list of questions ready for wednesday and am wierdly apprehensive and nervous about it though also excited, as ties in with 16wk check so also seeing the midwife.. Right better dash, my funny little lady is singing away into the microphone Nanna got her for christmas too cute!
Sorry sorry sorry for being AWOL have a or to apologise!
On phone (at work) so no personals Hoping to get dh's test results this week but he forgot to ask how long they take men!
Will try to catch up later x
Dh's results should be back today. I feel a little sick
The whole house has had the gastro bug, it hasn't been very pretty and ruined Henry's first birthday
buddha I'm here all day, no strength to do anything but sit around, so f you need a hand hold give me a yell
Barbie Sorry to see you're all still poorly Shame it spoilt Henry's birthday.
Well results are back and all ok, which I knew they would be. Means we're back at square one, no reason for not conceiving, nothing to fix just try try and try. So p**d off to be honest, can't feel positive. Will go back to gp for next step which is hospital referral
Aw Buddha really sorry to hear that, I know how disheartening it must be, totally understand from my recurrent miscarriage tests, when nothings found to be 'wrong', you're left feeling hopeless, but in your case, there is a positive to be found, cos although there isn't some miracle cure, there's still the fact there's no reason it can't happen for you.. Hold onto that fact hon.. Also your drs sounded really good before, might clomid be an option? How about acupuncture too? Our lovely mermaid was a great fan, as was mls, just a thought.. Anyway for now, a big hug and a glass of cos know you're bound to be feeling utterly crap...
Barbie poor all of you having that horrible bug.... Soooo sorry we all missed little H's 1st birthday too! Belated best wishes to your little man, and hope you get to make up for it soon!
Big waves to all the lurkers!
All ok here, waited nearly 3hrs for my consultant apt yesterday! Almost worth the wait though, was really nice and had specialist midwife in with us too so felt really looked after and reassured... Another scan next week, then nothing til my anomaly scan in march! Will make a change from the weekly visits! Might start venturing out and about a bit more now after my self imposed cotton wool and bubble wrap house arrest!
Actually off to do a few errands and round my mums later, as meant to be having a 'planned ' powercut while they do repair work, letter said from 8am-4pm but currently still got power and can see vans down the rd so might even get away with it!
Been lurking but not been on PC to do proper post and hate using phone as its so hair triggery.
Promise big catch up on my lunch at work tomorrow, just wanted to add my hugs to Buddha and echo 4ever's suggestion of acupuncture. I had two sessions before falling pg with B and whether it did anything or was placebo affect - it worked!
4ever so glad your appointment went well and left you feeling looked after and listened to xx
barbie sending lots of love and anti-bacterial vibes your way xx
Will be back tomor, laters! xx
As I'm wide awake at this god forsaken hour (thanks to a small person) I've been researching acupuncture and I'm going to ring a place tomorrow
Running in to give Buddha a huge hug. MLS swears by accu for both falling pg and preventing mc. Very good for stress too so worth a try. Just remember you have successfully done this before so there's NO reason why it won't happen again when the time is right.
Sorry guys, been lurking and hope to catch up with you soon.
Back as promised but of course youve all burgered off for the weekend
Buddha I think its great youre looking into acupuncture. Anything that makes our soul feel tended to and looked after can only be good for ttc. Its one of the cruel facts of ttc that how we feel emotionally can affect our bodies physically. Look at how many of us fell pg during a holiday when we were away from the normal grind .
neeko lovely to see you popping in . Not long until February half term! Are you guys doing anything?
4ever cant believe youre almost at your 20 week scan Thats just amazing. When is the grand unveiling of the flavour? <pulls up a chair orders in popcorn> . Three years is a great age gap too as S will be going to pre-school and you will get some dedicated new baby time. Hows the re-mortgaging going ? I totally took my hat off to my DH for keeping calm when we were moving house last year, all the ins and outs of changing mortgage and we were staying with the same Building Society!
Rumours - youve been very quiet of late and the thread isnt the same without you honey . I hope youre OK and things are getting there. I dont think our absolutely rubbish summer last year helped the Scottish mood in general. I will weep if its rainy this year, please let us get some decent weather, please!!
Barbie - young H looked so handsome in your FB photos, so like his gorgeous big sister too. Any sightings of Posh and Becks yet?
Sabs - WOW! Cant believe youre so far on, let us know how your scan goes on the 6th x
Im so glad January is gone, nights are starting to draw out and Im itching to get stuck into my new garden. Were having a bit of a time with young B as he has gotten into the habit of coming through to us every night @1am and we just bring him in. We didnt want to do controlled crying as he has had a lot to contend with (moving, starting pre-school, out of nappies etc) but Im going to have the bite the bullet and get strict as DH and me are knackered. Hes just too cute and cuddly though its hard to be harsh when hes pleading with me dont like my bed Mummy, want to sleep with you. We do insist he starts off in his bed at least but gah! to think I was a Gina Ford follower when they were tiny, Id get thrown out her club these days .
Waves to everyone else LBM, Louey. cupcake, moon and all our other lurkers xx
p.s. Buddha time to lose the xmas baubles
Just a quick one as racing around, but blue what about you going into his bed for a little while to settle him back into it? If ds comes into us in the night and really doesn't want to go back to his bed I just get in for a five minute cuddle. I tell him it'll only be for five mins and by then he's settled back down and I get to go back to my bed! We also have a rule that he doesn't get into our bed until the alarm goes off in the morning. Sounds great but backfires as he'll come in every few minutes to ask when it's going to go off
Must dash, but love to all xxx
4ever I every time I lurk and see that things are progressing so nicely with dc2. Try to stay as chilled as possible (easier said than done, I know) and to enjoy your growing bump. It sounds like S is going to be a very caring big sister.
Sabs Equally pleased to hear of you blooming. The weeks are flying and it won't be long until this lo is in your arms and you are counting fingers ad toes.
Rumours I'm also worried that you haven't been around in a while. Hope you're ok.
Buddha Hope you're ok and have done something nice this weekend.
Monkey so lovely to have you back on here. Had a at DS getting up to ask when the alarm will go off. They are so persistent! How did you get on at the new hospital? The puppy sounds adorable btw. Two wee people in this house would live one but I'm not one of them!
Blue I bet you have loads of plans for your new garden. We went for a walk yesterday at our local national trust place. The sun was shining and there were literally millions of snowdrops everywhere. So lovely after all that wind and rain.
You have my sympathies for the sleep situ. DD2 has been simply awful with sleep since Xmas. I think we've had 3 uninterrupted nights and DH and i are on our knees. She wants us to sing to her in the middle of the night and will waken us up to 20x. She's never been a great sleeper, but this is like being back in the trenches of bf land. I am not the most patient when sleep deprived and it has resulted in less-than-adequate parenting moments . I'd happily climb in beside her but she refuses to move into a big girl bed. Big deep breaths. This too will pass.
Barbie lovely to hear from you again but sounds like you've been having a hard time of it. Hope all the sickness has passed and normality (if there is such a thing) has returned.
Hi to Cupcake and LBM. Hope all the snow has gone now. We had none! New sledge is still lying untouched in the garage. DD1 became an avid watcher of the weather report, but no joy.
Apologies if I've missed anyone. My skin has almost cleared (finally) but as I think it was in part stress-related, I'm trying not to put too much on my inner to-do list which means you ladies sometimes get bumped . It is a relief that the thread is somewhat slower moving these days - I'd never keep up if we were still in 'new-thread every few weeks' land.
I've also started the 30 day shred again for some dedicated 'me' time and with a view to that Florida holiday in July that is fast approaching. It's tough, but I'm determined to complete the programme this time.
Are you ready for a big shock?
I dont know how, I mean I know how, but how?
I have a little bean nestling inside me
We have known for 3 weeks, I am sooo sorry not to have told you sooner, but I wanted to see my mum and sister first before I told you girls, I felt it was bad luck otherwise.
They said we wouldnt conceive without help, so we are calling this little one our Christmas miracle
Think I am about 7 and a half weeks by my calculations, have my booking in appointment on Friday. Omg I am sooo scared but sooo excited! I feel like absolute crap, have never been so tired or starving or felt like my boobs were big heavy bricks, but I am loving it and hoping these are good signs.
That's just the best news I've heard since 4evers last scan!! Great to hear you're feeling rubbish too, all good signs that the hormones are doing their thing! Sending every sticky bean vibe xx
Oh wow congratulations moon that's is the best news xxx
Oh MOON! What amazingly fantabulousy wonderful news!!!! I am so so so thrilled for you! A christmas miracle indeed, they do happen!
Great symptoms and yay to having your booking in all sorted too!
Am grinning from ear to ear!
Ooop big waves to blue & rumours
Extra hug for rumours hope you're ok lovely, been worried about you? x
Moon!!!!! sooo happy for you. Can't do grins on my phone, but rest assured I am grinning from ear to ear. Congratulations!
here's my hand Xxx
Oh my LIFE moon I'm crying here..this is the news we've all been waiting for for so long.. I KNEW it was going to happen for you and your crappy year(s) of pain are going to be behind you now..I know it's still early days of course but SURELY it's time for your luck to change. Don't you dare apologise for not saying anything sooner, we all do what we have to to get through. Oh gosh I'm just SO happy for you!! Will be praying lots!
Ladies I'll be back soon for catch up post, so sorry life is so busy right now & ds1 is always telling me to put my phone away!! But always lurking & thinking if you all..hand holds to sabs and 4ever for scans.. right now I have a stinky bum to change..joy!!
Moon sooooooo happy for you that is the best news!
Here to hold your hand whenever you need it
Hope everyone else is well. Passed the 20 week milestone yesterday. Might not be able to update the thread after my appointment on Wednesday so will text someone if that's OK.
Special hugs to rumours and also Buddha and Monkey
Oh moon what fantastic news!!! After all that you've been through you SO deserve this, and I hope that the next 36 and a half weeks are all plain sailing and uneventful in the best sense of the word Wonderful! Bet you can't quite believe it what did your mum and sister say? They must be so thrilled for you and dh! Xxx
Ps Sabs in my excitement I posted too soon Fab news you're so far along already! Probably feels like it been ages for you but it feels like it's zooming along! How are you feeling? Xxx
It does feel like I've been pregnant for ages but at least now I can count down the weeks having past the half way point (If that makes sense!)
I'm not as tired now which is good but getting more busier at work which is not so good. Trying not to get into the same situation with Saara where I WA signed off work for stress for 2 weeks but I have a much better team I work with now so hopefully that won't happen.
Feeling some movement which is fab but can't wait for the proper kicks
How are you doing Monkey?
Does happy dance
Falls down in sobbing heap
