Come on over animals, I think we'll be very comfy here smile

Hi ladies.

Very quiet in here. How are you all?

Not much to report here. The sun has been shining which makes a change grin

Hey moomin ! I'm good, booked in for scan on Saturday, feeling ok about it. I'm fine as long as I feel crap, as soon as I feel ok I worry !! Fingers crossed we see a heartbeat xx

BuddhaBelly Wed 01-May-13 07:12:09

Murray I will keep everything crossed (even my eyes) for Saturday smile
Moomin We're loving this weather too, Dh and I are off work this week so yesterday we got out in the garden, I weeded within an inch of my life and now I'm hurting shockgrin Cleaning and painting the decking today smile

Marbles Bet your hurting after all that exercise grin

Mummy Have you deserted us again? wink

BuddhaBelly Wed 01-May-13 07:17:50

Oh and I'm so crap at remembering to temp hmm Will try harder as only got two lots so far blush

Not too much longer to wait. What are your main symptoms?

Set your alarm Bhudda? That's what I used to do.

Good news - strong heartbeat and baby measured at 8+2 grin Such a relief as I was an emotional wreck beforehand !

Buddha - you got temps for us to analyze yet ? Where are you in your cycle ? I love a good chart wink

Moomin, send some of that sun up here - there is a distinct lack of it up North.

Fantastic news! How relieved do you feel? Another scan in 4 weeks? Did you get a pic?

gomurray Sat 04-May-13 15:40:16

On a scale of 1-10 my relief is measuring in at about 11 ! Despite feeling sick, tired and having a MASSIVE appetite I was still convinced it was all going to go wrong - when I saw the scan screen I was a mess, so terrified of a repeat of bad news after 20wk scan 18 months ago. So amazed, relieved and chuffed that there is a wee bean with a wee flickery heartbeat in there (along with the mountains of crisps and pickled eggs - I have a vinegar craving !!) Pic is just a shadowy blob which I had expected - at best like a tadpole but really just a smudge !

You need to look at that tiny little pickled blob every time you feel any kind of anxiety. Time to let your guard down and enjoy this pregnancy (and the snacking). You've waited too long not to xx

Meant to ask how close you are to Bearsden? My neighbours have moved there and a visit is definitely on the cards at some point

BuddhaBelly Sat 04-May-13 18:25:09

Murray grin grin fantastic news grin Sorry I'm late to the party for some reason I thought the scan was next week confused I can uncross everything until the next one. Lets hope the vinegar craving disappears before the heartburn kicks in wink
Not many temps as mornings are a nightmare with E jumping all over me! Got some but chart looks a but sorry for itself. Back to work next week so will try harder, will probably be awake before E smile

Murraygringrin excellent news! grin CONGRATULATIONSgringringringrin (can you tell I have been dying to shout that at yousmile)

Buddha I started temping and only managed 1 so if this cycle doesn't work out then maybe next one I will remember not likelywink

Moomin how are you? Any news on J? smile

BuddhaBelly Tue 07-May-13 06:35:27

Hope you all had a lovely long weekend? grin It's back to work for me this morning after a week off shock boo hmm Well no more temps done, not bothered with an OPK and don't seem to be able to kick start this diet either! confused Marbles you need to motivate me wink how's S doing?
You would have thought I'd have the best motivation in the world but no just keep making excuses, don't know why??
Murray How's that's little bean of yours? Still feeling crappy? When's the next scan?
Moomin How are things with you? D behaving?

Afternoon Buddhasmile OK motivation? i'll give it a gowink I'm doing WW and hit my wedding weight this week! that's 1 lb off 2 1/2 stone now! i have been reading a thread on here about having a light-bulb moment to motivate weight loss and i realized i had one of these smile there was a group photo in my office last year and i thought i looked OK...held in my belly for the photo etc and when i uploaded it from the camera i looked about 6 months preg!! my face was puffy and pale and very round! a light-bulb came on in my head and i was so ashamed of how i had let myself become! my diet started there and then...i stopped using the lift in work and haven't used it at all since 17th Nov 2012smile i joined the gym a few weeks ago with my sister and i am loving it at the minute! i'm still on WW and try to track every day and stick to the plan! i have 1st 8lb to go before i have reached my target but i'm not strict about that as i want to see how i feel when i get there (and i will!!) and i may just keep going for a bit!smile i'm doing it in small milestones to keep me motivated (my first was half a stone, then my 10% weight loss, then 2 st, then my wedding weight...my next is 3st which i will reach by the end of may hopefullysmile) i really do feel better than i have in years! (so cliche!) im hoping it has a good effect on fertility too smile

Wow Marbles quite a motivational post ! I am so impressed with how you turned your life around (and that is exactly what you did) so suddenly.

Buddha, hopefully you can take some inspiration - hopefully your 'lightbulb moment' will come soon. Come on with the temps !!! I was looking forward to seeing a chart !! Are you TTC ? Maybe a relaxed approach will work better for you if you are not stressing it about temps and OPKs - we are all different. Hope you are feeling ok within yourself - hugs xx

Next scan is Tue 28th May - 3 days after I get back from holiday - off on Sunday for 13 nights in the sun - can't wait !!!

BuddhaBelly Sat 11-May-13 19:10:12

Marbles Thank you for my motivational inspiring post grin Unfortunately I've got hangover munchies and am scoffing a Domino's (there's no hope hmm) But I only drink about twice a year thank goodness smile Amazing photo on FB skinny Minny grin
Murray No temps no OPKs this month, just vitamins, acupuncture and plenty of nookie wink Next cycle I promise you a chart to distract you until the next scan smile
Moomin You stopped yet? shock

Bleugh. Hangover here too. I cannot drink anymore. Three bottles of beer and a glass of wine and I'm ruined for a day. Make. It. Stop.

Have a fab time Murray!

Where did you all go? I'm hangover free but just as grumpy. Am applying for a job (full time) which I know I won't even get an interview for. The application letter was four pages and had to be handwritten. Took ages! Need wine.

BuddhaBelly Thu 16-May-13 07:47:28

Good luck with the job Moomin, although f/t with 2 kids on your own will be bloody hard shock
Back to post properly later smile

BuddhaBelly Thu 16-May-13 13:54:47

Waiting for acupuncture so thought I'd so a quick post smile
Marbles aka the skinny one grin How are things with you? Where are you at in your cycle?
Moomin Is J in the same predicament as E where he loses his friends from nursery to school this year hmm I'm dreading explaining that one to E he'll be devastated shock
Right she's here so off to get needles jabbed in me grin

Thanks! Yes he is. We've started talking about it. He'll be moving nursery is I get this job though.
Hope acupuncture goes well!

Es going on holiday tomorrow with my parents blush There's a part of me that can't wait but a much bigger part thats missing him already sad Nearly cried just packing his suitcase, he seems dead excited and I know he'll have a fab time smile

BuddhaBelly Sun 19-May-13 08:16:42
