cupcakefairy Wed 29-Aug-12 18:42:18

Hello blackrocked course you can join us smile lovely to see a new face! (so to speak grin) make yourself at home..
We definitely know a lot about staying hopeful on this thread & we've all been through the hell of miscarriage so hopefully you'll find a listening ear smile

Hi lbm lol at hiding in the playhouse, know the feeking!!

cupcakefairy Wed 29-Aug-12 18:43:01

Feeking?? That's not even a word is it!? hmm

barbie1 Wed 29-Aug-12 19:08:41

Welcome blackrocked pull up a bean bag and sip some wine or gulp is rumours stylee grin wink we are a slightly mad bunch. Been through all kinds of stuff and have formed great relationships along the way...it's been a crazy 4 years but we have laughed until we cried and cried until we laughed. We will get you through this shitty time. Moan, shout, scream, whatever you feel like, there is always someone popping in here for a chat!

Rumours Wed 29-Aug-12 19:33:06

Hi lovelies and a big welcome to blackrocked smile there's a few that have 2 mc's inbetween dc's, hopefully, like some of us, you'll be third time lucky smile. The about mc is the not having any concrete answers, it's so bloody frustrating, if we knew the problem then we could try and fix it. Some of us have had our much long for bubs but some sadly haven't, so you're not alone ttc, and we're all here for support.

moonmrs Wed 29-Aug-12 20:25:31

Ooh a new face smile this is very weird, I was only thinking yesterday that we havent had a new person join us for a long time, I log in and here you are! Welcome blackrocked make yourself comfy, you will get lots of support here, the girls are great. Sorry to hear of your mcs, sadly we have all been there and know how heartbreaking it is.

4ever hope your toe is ok. My sister once broke her little toe, and unfortunately there isnt anything that can be done, they heal on their own, although hers sticks out at a bit of a funny angle now shock

Just passing through, crazy busy this week, and still feeling utterly shite after my flu bug (although found out today that it might have been bronchitis - some friends came over the weekend before I caught it, and one of them developed bronchitis a few days after seeing them, so that might explain why its lingering on a bit).

Back soon.

Welcome blackrocked smile nice to have a new recruit but sorry you've been having such a hard time ttc... As the others have said, you are in the right place here, sound off, wobble and get advice whenever you need it, unfortunately we've all been there, and understand all too well... My last (& 6th) mc was only 3 months ago, been on the rollercoaster for 5yrs too but amazingly had our miracle DD after 4th mc 2yrs ago... grin I'm now also ttc no 2, and despite 2 more mc, not giving up... So, we are in the same boat, alongside a fair few other of these lovely ladies, despite some of us being at different stages of our journeys, the support remains the same, and that's invaluable smile

Talking of which, thanks Lbm sweetie, it is the things that hit you out the blue that really get you, been trying to shake it off ever since...

blackrocked Fri 31-Aug-12 18:48:06

Thank you. I was on here about four years ago....think I remember the thread. I was blackrock back then, but have been rocked for a bit in the last four years! I have been on clomid, mc, given up, then not given up. Kind of forgotten how it all works, but will get up to speed. using fertility friend again too....so hoping and hoping for everyone x

Neeko Sat 01-Sep-12 21:36:42

Welcome to Blackrocked. Lovely ladies on here smile but sorry that you've had to join us. It's so unfair that some women have such difficulty, but we'll get you through.

LBM I too had a bt of a snort at you hiding from the kids grin

Rumours Hang in there. Hope the vino was good and that MrRumours is available for cuddles tonight. smile

Barbie 7 months? shock How? When? And does that have to mean that I'm 7 months older too? hmm Remember Nlsons teetha granules for the teething too.

4ever How's the potty training going? Buy a toliet seat with handles as it's quite scary for them if they have nothing to hold onto. smile Family reunion sounded great , but ouch to your poor toe.

Moon sorry to hear you're still feeling poorly. Hope you pick up soon. Yay to a new recruit though as it's always boosted BFPs in the past.

Cupcake DD2 has no interest in potty training what so ever but since she won't go to school until she's 5.5 - almost 3 years! shock - I dn't need to worry. Hope your gorgeous boys are keeping you smiling and that they are letting you sleep.

All ok here, though busy as ever. DD2 has had a cold. I'm trying to maximise on sleep by slathering her in Vicks, raising her mattress, using a plug in and giving her Calpol. So far, so good. In good spirits though - asked DH tonight if baby kangaroos lived in his hairy belly button! grin
DD1 is 6 at the end of this month and wants a princess party complete with castle cake. 4ever I need your help!
I have just signed up for a 6k very slow jog run in 2 weeks - eek! Have only managed 5k max before so hope that the excitement of the day will carry me through.
that's all from Neekoland Happy weekends.

GracieGirl Sat 01-Sep-12 22:00:37

Just lurking and thought I'd say hello.

Welcome to the thread Blackrocked, I've been around on this thread for just over 3 and a half years, though more of a lurker just lately .

Big waves to everyone! smile

4everhopeful Sun 02-Sep-12 11:00:22

Quickly popping in, hi gracie stranger!

Neeks cake pretty simple really, 2 square cakes, choc buttercream to sandwich together, 2 round cakes, also sandwiched together, round ones on top of square ones, buttercream the lot. Top tip, as so much buttercream needed, just buy Betty Crockers ready made stuff, a small cheat but you'd be at it for hours with a ton of butter & icing sugar for the amount you need... Next up buy 4 swiss rolls, also coat with buttercream and put on each corner as turrets, get 4 ice cream cones, melt some chocolate and butter in a pan, then paint the cones in chocolate with an egg brush, while still sticky add sugar sprinkles to bottoms, place on top of swiss rolls as turret roofs, use rest of melted choc to dip marshmallows in to place on top of cake as roof bit... Use jelly diamonds for turret windows & choc fingers for castle door... Adorn as you feel, hey presto!

Will be back soon... Feeling a bit hmm and flat at the moment... Sometimes it all creeps up on you doesn't it...

Hi all, sorry for lack of posts, I'm having a very tough time at the moment re:bullying. Can't say anymore in case anyone happens upon the thread but I'm spending alot of my free time preparing timelines and copying emails etc. It's not my work, in fact I wish it was as I'd then at least be protected by policies and agreed behaviours.

Will try to do a catch up soon but 4ever sending a cuddle, it's up and down and up and down this old world of ours x

moonmrs Sun 02-Sep-12 14:50:44

Waves to gracie lovely to see you popping in, hope all is well with you smile

Hugs for 4ever you know that we know only too well what you mean, we're here if you need us.

And hugs for blue so sorry to hear you're having a rough time of it, bullying is horrible sad really hope you manage to get things sorted out.

Rumours Sun 02-Sep-12 20:50:17

4ever have hug lovely, and you too blue
neeko hope dd2 feels better soon.
gracie good to see you popping in.

Been a mad weekend here with the birthday boy, can't believe he's 3!!!! He's had a lovely time and we are swamped with Thomas toys everywhere grin

Going to put my feet up and have a slice of Thomas cake. I can't lost a pic because it was that awful it made me giggle all day, but at least I tried smile

Rumours Sun 02-Sep-12 20:56:12

Oh and neeko I have now finished the 50 shades trilogy, I liked the last book the best smile

Huge Happy Happy (belated blush) third Birthday to Ajay!

So glad you all had a lovely day xxxx

Our first Emmsy's graduate turns 3 <misty eyes> <lump in throat>

cupcakefairy Sun 02-Sep-12 22:10:13

Aww rumours so sorry I missed your boy's birthday! Hope it was lovely. Wow can't believe he's 3! We already have an abundance of Thomas stuff so can't imagine it after this Christmas & 3rd birthday!!

neeko jealous that your H won't start school for so long! My ds1 will be in nursery school this time next year sad I'm sure plenty of us will be tackling potty training before long, ds has asked a few times to sit on the loo but hasn't produced anything!! He's curious but not ready yet imo.

Right time for bed..we've been away for a friend's wedding this weekend back home so had the luxury of my mum picking up ds1 in the evening & we danced til the late hours (i say 'we'.. I mean me, while dh looked vaguely bored) anyway...night all!! x

moonmrs Sun 02-Sep-12 22:11:50

rumours happy birthday to the birthday boy, so pleased to hear you've all had a lovely time. And who cares what the cake looks like, cake is cake and as long as it tastes good thats all that matters, plus you made an effort too.

Just realised I forgot to wave to neeko yesterday <mad waves>

moonmrs Sun 02-Sep-12 22:12:42

Oh and cross post, <waves> to cupcake too

4everhopeful Sun 02-Sep-12 22:31:47

OMG! blush Feel absolutely terrible to have missed our first ever graduates 3rd Birthday!!!! Knew it was coming soon, can't believe I didn't bring the list over <kicks self>

Rumours give your gorgeous precious special boy a big birthday kiss & tummy tickle from me & Summer xxxxxxx

Thanks for the hugs lovelies...

Rumours Mon 03-Sep-12 16:56:35

4ever ds2 loved his tummy tickles grin

Rumours Tue 04-Sep-12 08:35:46

Morning lovelies smile
Got a text off sabs yesterday, she's really busy with rl at the mo but sends her love smile

Ok, so we've all been rubbish - happy birthday to DS2, Rumours. Hope he had a lovely time with the engine. Would have loved to have seen the cake - might have competed with the one me and the kids made for Daddy today - was a castle of doom and ds2 pipped up " It looked great in the book, Daddy" - and your point was, son?!

Really can't stay - kids back to school tomorrow and am looking for uniform, naming pencils (wtf), looking for school bookmarks, wellies, art aprons and everything else that we have lost

blue sorry you are having a tough time. Bullying none of us need.

neeko can't believe that your dd will be so old when she starts school, BB will only be 4! Not sure that I am jealous though as she will be very ready and that is an extra year of nursery fees we don't have to pay!

Hello to all, especially stranger Gracie and Blackrooked, welcome

4everhopeful Wed 05-Sep-12 09:38:43

Hello lovelies, promise will be back for a proper post soon..

Blue so sorry to hear of the rough time you're having, its horrible to have to put up with petty people, hope justice is done.. Well done you for getting on the case and putting your foot down..

LBM good luck (and a teensy hurrah?) for thr return to school! In fact Good luck to all our returning to schoolers..

Rumours any news on apts yet? Have you found engine sheds space for your abundance of Thomas goodies yet?

Neeko yes, am about to invest in peppa trainmer seat with handles, she is nappy free all day in the house, but still stands to wee, brings a nappy to me when she needs a poo, and is bare waist down, when has had shorts/leggings on, has had an accident as presume she thinks she has a nappy on?! hmm Must master pulling down of bottoms and sitting...!

Sorry for short and sweet pass through, cbeebies currently babysitting for last 30 mins so must dash..

Its my month of 'dates' edd for 2nd on sat, edd for 4th on 26th, course without them there would be no Summer, so remembering with a smile, but also unbelievably 5yrs since first mc on the 14th, and my DDDDDDads birthday on the 11th, so bit of a time of it.. sad Took my mum for a 'review' xray on her poor back yesterday and wandered along to EPU to see my now good friends that work there(!) but no one was in! Did however find out, my nice consultant has only retitred from ante natal care, but still runs recurrent mc clinic so that was nice to hear.. Anyway, up & down for me at the mo, driven by desperation desire to be preg again, and all the knock on effects it has on life in general (re booking hols for next year/work/money/age gaps/Summer starting pre school ect).. However do have another wk in caravan to look forward to on the 18th so hooray to that smile

cupcakefairy Wed 05-Sep-12 17:27:35

Hi 4ever sorry you have your difficult month coming up sad but maybe we can add in a happy date of another bfp! (i say 'we'... I mean you & dh grin and a crowd of cheerleaders with pompoms!) So sorry you have the mind frazzle of all those decisions. You should book a holiday for May sometime and you're bound to get bfp!

blue so sorry to hear about the bullying that's seriously crap. Hope you're ok.

Hi gracie! Stop lurking and tell us about your new(ish) ds! And what about your dd, are you tackling potty training yet?

Must dash, dinner to do..

cupcakefairy Wed 05-Sep-12 17:29:25

Ooh and neeko inspired by you I've decided to go swimming one night a week smile stupidly excited about it! My post-baby diet started Monday too & it's killing me already not being able.to have a biccie with my tea! Anyone want to join me? I have 2 stone to shift sad
