We are home, and I've come straight on here evaluate waiting for me in the post was a BAG OF MINI EGGS from the lovely mermaid. I hope (mermaid) you don't mind me mentioning this on here but I really wanted to thank you. I was feeling so drained when I walked through the door but it has really cheered me up and reminded me that it is now the mini egg season smilesmile[sm

Sabs so so sorry for your loss sad sad Glad you got to be there at the end. Thinking of you and your family.

Moon squeezing tightly on your hand and sending lots of positive thoughts your way.

Will be back tomorrow to post more but Happy Mother's Day to all of you and special hugs for those of you who long to be more of a mother than you already are Xxx

As curlygirl would say Ooh ooh ee ee ah ah grin grin words cannot describe how lovely it is to see mermaid back in the greenhouse, even if only for a brief visit. Please do a quick post or email if you can my lovely to let us know how you are. You probably have an idea of how much you have been missed from the reactions here but you can be sure WE HAVE MISSED YOU!!!! Bless you for cheering up rumours xxx

Is it too early for a glass of wine? wine

rumours you poor love <<squeeze>> how is ds2 today? You must have felt your world was falling apart over the last couple of weeks. Happy mothers day to the best mother in the world. You really do your boys proud smile ps:sharing is good, hand one of dem mini eggs over xxx

sabs my lovely I am so sorry about your nan. It's lovely to think of your beloved grandad and her back together and her not suffering any more. But I know it doesn't stop the raw pain of missing someone you love. Having got to know you both here and in real life over the last few years, I can honestly say that I'm sure that she couldnt have been prouder of the kind, gentle, funny and intelligent woman that you have become, as well as a wonderful mum to her namesake Saara. Big hugs to you and your mum today xxxx

moon one more sleep smile What time is your scan? Don't worry about symptoms fading away, totally normal as remindme says, natures way of screwing with you. Tiredness is a great sign and hopefully that will start to ease now. Here's my hand brave lady. Remember bean doesn't even need a scan, this is just for you to say hello for the first time. It might help to explain to the sonographer when you first go in though so that they tell you very quickly that all is okay and you can then relax and enjoy the scan smile xxx

4ever hope you are managing to catch up on sleep and can relax a bit more now smile How's your tooth?

blue still laughing at your post grin This may sound like a daft question but how long till curly girl wipes her own bum? hmm

cupcake you were organised enough to post cards? You are an amazing mum smile

Hope the party went well mrskate. How are you doing lovely?

Waves to old and present friends neeko mls lbm remindme buddha monkey barbie lion mm vm annie iggy jools louey Qa and bq and anyone I've forgotten unintentionally xxx

Its a bittersweet day for me today. so wonderful to be spoilt by my lovely dcs and dh. Im still in bed cuddling curlygirl smile But im so sad about my friend who i saw as my second mum and who always got flowers and a card from us on mothers day. We are going to visit her grave instead today and it's just not right sad

Happy mothers day to all, those with little ones, those with one on the way and those who are mums to little angels who will always be in our hearts xxx

moonmrs Sun 10-Mar-13 11:54:38

curly your post made me almost cry! Think I'm just a bit of an emotional wreck atm. Scan is at 10.15am tomorrow, I don't think I'll be getting much sleep. Part of me doesn't even want the scan, I am so so happy being blissfully unaware, the happiest I've been in years, what if it all gets taken away from me....

rumours so relieved for you that ds2 is home and doing well

big waves to mermaid like the other girls have said, you've been missed

Got to dash, just off out to meet my mum for a few hours. Happy Mothers' Day to everyone.

Will post as soon as I can tomorrow.

Moon, not long now. I'll be glued to the thread tomorrow waiting for your happy news. I agree with Curly, tell the sonographer that you've had bad history with scans and maybe they can be quick to reassure you.

cupcakefairy Sun 10-Mar-13 12:55:43

Happy mothers' day to all you lovely ladies! Especially to moon, you are already a mummy, and will be just that step further on tomorrow with so much to look forward to! I'll be a-lurking in the morning too!
This morning ds1 gave me a card in which he'd drawn a picture of me, completely by himself and it was so good! Nearly made me cry, it's the first person he's ever drawn smile

mermaid high five to you.

curly ha! You cracked me up with the question about wiping bums grin must say I have wondered the same! I'm assuming ds is going to have to by the time he starts pre-school in Sept!
So sorry you have sadness today as well as joy..give those gorgeous babies a tight squeeze. Loads of love x x x

rumours can't believe it about ds! No wonder you were quiet! Hope he's home & much better now and that you're being spoilt too x

Neeko Sun 10-Mar-13 13:32:03

I'll be waiting im patiently tomorrow too Moon It's only natural to be petrified. Thinking of you.

As for the bum thing. Dd1 was about 4 but it could be MUCH later and they often regress hmm

MrsKate Sun 10-Mar-13 15:11:02

Hi girls

Ds party was a success i thinksmile he had a amazing time i had a kids party in morning and family came in the afternoon so he had a 12 hr celebration shockhe was so so spoilt
He came in to us in the morning and shouted Surprise its my birthday !!!

i am just so tired today .i have just been to a friends dc christening this morning and the first thing she said to me was i was huge shock shock Bit worrying as only 8 weeks

Big waves to mermaid smilesmilesmilesmile

Neeko i hated the fact i queue jumped wink cant believe he is 3 my baby is all grown up

Hi to everyone else xxxx

MrsKate, our friend from the Christening is a size 6-8 at most, everyone is huge compared to her! grin Don't worry. I though you looked great yesterday at DS's party.

MrsKate Sun 10-Mar-13 15:49:41

True true she is very slim i ate rubbish yesterday so im really really bloated today shock

Neeko Sun 10-Mar-13 19:54:23

Mrskate if you can't feel bloated when you're pregnant when can you?? grin
Glad your DS had such a good time. So cute what he said when he got up. smile

Hey mermaid smile it's nice to know you are around, even if you are in near permanent lurk-mode!

Moon eeeeeeeeeek!!! shock We really DO know how you are feeling right now. Sick, excited, fearful, hopeful, & absolutely crapping your pants. Have a hand-hold & a squeeze from me. I'll be refresh/refresh/refreshing all morning. Have you got anyone's number or do we have to bloody hang around watch the thread?!?

On the subject of bum wiping grin dd1 was proficient at 4 (nearly 5), dd2 wipes after a wee & would after a poo if I let her!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mummies & mummies to be. XX thanks

mermaid sooooo lovely to see you

moon I so understand about your fears about tomorrow and almost not wanting to know. Tomorrow, your head has to come out of the sand - to say hello to your bean smile. I agree with curly - make sure you tell your scanner, will help when you burst into tears at the heartbeat!

4ever So, so, so pleased for you - yes, wasn't at your hospital but was at Springfield which I know if near. Prepare for being a mum of 2! There is something really special about your little boy - you needed no treatment, no magic, just you and your ddh and voila, a baby!

rumours poor ds2. Hope you and he are better now you get to sleep in your own beds. Those hospital beds are a nightmare, along with the checks all night long!

Re bottom wiping - based on the skid marks on ds's pant ( aged 8), quite a while I reckon. Think you just need to stop caring!!

mrskate great to hear the party was a success. I too can't believe how old our babies are. BB's favourite lines at the moment are " thats not fair" and "mummy, you're mean!" . Being huge is a good sign right?

neeko loved your line about those of us who long to be more of a mother than they currently are.

curly and sabs sure today is bittersweet for both of you. Love to you both

sabs re book week - could have been worse. Friend at work sent in her dd dressed as a witch for world book day a day early!

Hello and happy mothers day to everyone - my kids did ok today - their key role was to be good. DD1 was great, cleaned the bathroom and then washed up after lunch with Grandma. DS was asked to help peel veg and said that he wasn't doing slave work!. DD2 was quite cute but v clingy. She did make cakes with me, which is always fun!

DH did really well - bought me a lovely jug from a local pottery that I really like and really impressed me by getting it from the seconds section, which is the only part I ever buy from as the main part is too expensive and I was a bit cross that he had spent too much!

Will be back tomorrow to see how Moonsbean is

LBM...... Skid marks aahahahaha! Trying to stifle laughs in bed with a semi-slumbering dh! grin

Forgot to add earlier Rumours hope your ds is on the mend.

4everhopeful Sun 10-Mar-13 23:40:46

Just popping in to offer a big hand squeeze and steadying arm to a no doubt very wobbly weeble moon, am sending up a little prayer, and sending a ton of positive thoughts... We will all be in that scan room with you tomorrow morning (which I reguarly envisioned with a grin at my multitude of scans) and it also feels amazing to know how many people up and down the country are willing your little one on... I, like us all, will be waiting with baited breath! Please let us know as soon as you can?!?!

Just had to pop in for moon, but lovely to see such a busy thread and glad to hear you deserving lovelies all had a Happy Mothers day... smile Lovely here too, spoilt by my gorgeous girl and Dh, bittersweet also, as I mentioned, it should of also been my Dbrothers birthday today (56..) so not great timing for mothers day, very hard for my mum, took her to the cemetery sad but, went to mothercare afterwards where she spoilt her future grandson, then back to ours where Dh cooked us all a yummy roast... smile Hope you all embraced your loved ones extra tight today... Know I'm still pinching myself I'm even a mummy at all, smile and as we put Summer to bed tonight I completely smothered her in a million kisses! smile

Just popping on to check Moon isn't pacing the floors of the greenhouse on her own.
Fingers crossed that the scan appointments are running on time.

moon still thinking about you.....
