Well MIL has dug out DH's old cot for us, it's exactly the same as the cot I had when I was a baby! Perfect!

Ooh, shiny new thread! Has anyone remembered to bring the Gruffalo's lead?

Welcome back nannyl! and AC - can't remember if I've said it to you yet! Been a loooong and busy week....

Marking my place with stats:

Bebe - Waiting (still) to TTC#2 hopefully sometime this decade!
Amanda - Waiting (still) to TTC#1, again, hopefully sometime this decade!
Squirrel - DD1 born 1st July
MrsS - Waiting to TTC#1 maybe early 2012 depending on what I decide! (and it is what I decide as DH is all for it... so the boot's on the other foot here... makes me feel a bit bad...)

MrsSatsuma Sat 17-Sep-11 20:02:29

Whoever goes next, please don't include all the random ramblings after my stats btw!!

AmandaCooper Sat 17-Sep-11 23:16:08

MrsS thanks for the welcome back! So remind me, what is it you are waiting for now if not DH. <tries to imagine not waiting for DH>

SPR good to see you! TBT is from London to Los Angeles, then hiring a car and driving down the coast road to San Fransisco, then Vegas and Grand Canyon, then flying out of Vegas.

Welcome back Nannyl and congratulations on becoming a mummy! x

TBT sounds fantastic. DH and I were supposed to do that last summer but had to put plans on hold because of work and house stuff. You'll have an amazing time smile

Welcome back Nannyl. We've missed you smile

Still in bed this morning (lazy cow!!) as had a busy week and went into town yesterday. Think we've narrowed the buggy search to 2/3 contenders but are now totally stuck! Good job we started early!!!!!

AmandaCooper Sun 18-Sep-11 14:31:28

What are the 2/3 contenders?

Bugaboo Cameleon
iCandy Peach
iCandy Strawberry (not out yet hence decision issues!!!)

It's all so confusing!

AmandaCooper Sun 18-Sep-11 17:22:12

You can say that again, how on earth are you supposed to choose?! This is worse than choosing which cloth nappy brand to get!

Well today sees the first of the real nappies smile mega poo in it and then on it during changing! O M G I'm not sure it will ever look the same again!!!!

She's lovely and placid through the day, sleeps well at night but turns into feed me monster in the evening for a few hours. But does have some settled time in the eve, but just when you think she can't want anymore it's 'gimme boob' noises again! Lol think she is a little windy in the evening. We're getting there with it though. smile

Enjoyed a couple of chill out days and a walk to her aunties yesterday smile

Ooh food time for her now. Ttfn

I'll catch up in a bit

MrsSatsuma Sun 18-Sep-11 20:57:25

Ooh AC I did that exact trip (but the other way round) last year! Had a fantastic time. Let me know if you want any tips! In answer to your question, DH is waiting for me and my cold feet blush

SPR you are allowed a lie-in. I've heard people sometimes don't get many when the LO arrives....?!

100years Sun 18-Sep-11 21:26:50

Well I didn't get out of bed till 11 yesterday! That's a good lie in for someone with a 1 wk old. Granted we had fed a few times at 8 and 9:30 ish but still rested in bed! Lol amazing. Then at 10 OH took LO into front room for me to rest a bit more.

More feeding time now. She's in wake mode now so I'll have to go.

squirrel007 Mon 19-Sep-11 09:55:50

Amanda I also did a similar trip (Vegas, Pacific Coast Highway, San Francisco) and it was great fun. Really liked the scenery and food along there. I have great memories of eating piles of blueberry pancakes for breakfast grin

100years yay for staying in bed! I admit to lots of lazy mornings in bed with DD at the moment smile It's especially good if you feed lying down and can doze a bit while she's feeding. Everyone says to sleep when the baby does, but I found it hard to nap in the middle of the afternoon, so prefer to have lazy mornings

SPR I didn't know icandy had a new model, I like the style of their prams! I have the icandy cherry, which really suits us. We didn't get the chameleon or peach as they're too big (only have a small car) and I quite liked the idea of a small compact pram anyway.

DD is awake, I'd better go! Oh, and I've added an up to date picture on my profile smile

bebeballroom Mon 19-Sep-11 10:45:36

Ahh Squirrel, Charlotte is adorable! What big beautiful eyes!! smile

100 - Definitely stay in bed as much as possible!! wink

AC - TBT, sounds fabulous!! DH & I want to go to vegas....but probably without DD!!

AmandaCooper Mon 19-Sep-11 13:14:08

Hmm he still hasn't booked the time off. He's been muttering about it looking bad - apparently the thing to do to show your boss how much you're in demand is to not take a break. Now where's that Gruffalo?

AmandaCooper Mon 19-Sep-11 13:19:58

And how can we do TBT if DH can't take any time off work? And how can TBT be so important if it's not even important enough to take holiday for?

minipie Mon 19-Sep-11 13:23:40

Just marking my place and adding to the stats - will be back for a chat later!

AC what is your DH playing at? I thought he was dead keen for TBT. Has he just started a new job or is his job looking insecure? If not ... <lures Gruffalo with scent of indecisive DH>

AmandaCooper Mon 19-Sep-11 13:32:42

No nothing like that as far as I know. I mean we all know that DH doesn't actually want to go on a big trip, but to actually refuse to go on one seems a bit much! I daresay he's just procrastinating. Watch this space.

minipie Mon 19-Sep-11 13:55:27

Tchah. Do you think he's procrastinating because of the link with starting to TTC, or just because he doesn't want to commit to a Big Trip? How Big is this Big Trip - is it more than 2 weeks?

squirrel what lovely photos of Charlotte - she's beautiful.

bebeballroom Mon 19-Sep-11 14:12:40

Grrrrrrrruffalo!!!!!!! angry

Book it anyway? Force his hand? Thought TBT was his idea?!

This is the last year (possibly) that we can go to my mums holiday place (coz the week she has it is in term time & DD starts school next year) & DH promised he would come, bear in mind he's known when it was for...well, a year, coz it's the same week every year. DH has never been. I took DD on my own with my mum when she was 8 weeks old. (She had an ear infection & screamed the whole time (I didn't know why until her ear drum ruptured the day after I got home) & my mum was no help at all hmm) Anyway, I digress! Less than a week til we go (Friday) he is now saying that he probably can't come. And while I am not surprised I am secretly livid and trying really hard to not make a big deal out of it! But am SO pissed off. What is with these DHs?!?! Aaaarrrrggghhh!!!!

100years Mon 19-Sep-11 15:11:21

Good afternoon all.

Squirrel, gorgeous little girl, very wide eyed and awake. I do have the odd snooze mid afternoon or early evening, but it's weird at times. But if I don't do that I find the evening tough as she is cluster feeding at the moment from 8ish till 11ish.

bebe, I'm trying! and looks like you need the Gruffalo too.

AC, FFS, what is he like??!!

I was hoping the Gruffalo would have a rest this thread, looks like I was very wrong. sad

MW just been, LO is now 7lb2 on day 10 smile yay, a nice weight gain of 7oz smile and into the alb brigade. The cluster feeding is normal, it's all due to the milk produced at that time of day. My cut is not sewn properly, but MW is OK with it, and thinks it should be OK, but will come and look at it next monday to check it again. Been out to the shops today smile went to mother care and sainsbury's, had to attempt a feed in the car for a few mins as she was really hungry, but it wasn't the easiest thing, and OH came back as he had nipped into B&Q for something, so we put her back in the seat and drove home, which was fine, and had a monster feed when we got home.

Ahhhh, a new thread, and we know it's ours because there's already the background rumble of rage as across the land, WIIT men cancel f*cking holidays!

I thought AC's DH DID want to go on a Big Trip? Or is he just flinging down obstacles in the path of TTC so that he can continue his Olympic-standard dithering? (Great TBT btw AC, I would LOVE to do that...if your DH cancels can I come instead? I'll bring some eggs?)

Hurrah that Nannyl has rejoined us - I read her birth story on another thread, incredible!

Squirrel, Charlotte is just beautiful. What incredible eyes.

A good day over here as my company received a 'yes' to our latest grant today, which means that I won't have to work for free from now til Xmas and bankrupt myself in the process, hurrah!

MrBebe is in bad books with MrCooper. I'm so cross with them both for being so unreliable.

Bebe - what does DD say about Daddy missing all these holidays? Hols are essential. Particularly if you are in a stressful job and even more so if you are prone to being a bit depressed. Can you get her to guilt him into coming along???

AC - words actually fail me.
