TwentiethCenturyHeffa Sun 23-Jan-11 17:52:52

Hollyoaks - that's fantastic news So glad he's OK, I've been thinking of you and your sister ever since you posted. Glandular fever nasty but hopefully will pass soon Must be such a relief for you all.

Mousey - ooh, exciting! I never had a negative but my first BFP with DD was very weak (I didn't see it, DH had to point it out to me blush). I get the vivid dreams while pg too, although I get them lots even when not.

Hope everyone's had a good weekend. DS started crawling properly today, he's been mobile for a while by shuffling/rolling/pulling himself around but not actually crawling until now. He went straight to his highchair hmm

Den26 Sun 23-Jan-11 20:39:34

Hi all, holly that is fantastic news sending good luck thoughts for further tests :-) moosey goodluck with the testing, can't remember, were u planning more? I was 7 days late before xmas and did tests co i'm never late. All negative and AF turned up! Heffa - wow to ur lo on the move! I have found a couple of support sites which are really helpful unfortunately hardly anyone had the full op rian to have. Thinking it may be best in long term to get it all done now. We have a date for surgery - 25th march! In 2 minds really, atleast its not too long to wait and oh god its not long to wait! Asked if we can discuss it all again when we go down day before. On the other hand work problem should hopefully be resolved next week. Both managers want me to stay so being cheeky and seeing what they both can offer! :-D. Sorry for weird post as on phone! Hope everyone well :-)

pamelat Sun 23-Jan-11 21:26:23

hollyoaks only just read about your nephew and the all clear, thank goodness, how terrifying for you all. Glad it looks as though nothing too serious smile

mousey I tested neg at about 1 week preg and then faint line (very faint) at about 10 days. Think you are meant to wait 2 weeks or so? What result would you like?

I am very torn. I think with my practical head on it would be wrong for us. Financially/emotionally/physically ... all of it but I just want to be pregnant blush My friend is due to have her baby boy today (first and probably only), she has waited years on IVF, very very excited and bit jealous smile

Hope everyone is well

WLTK you give me some hope. We are going skiing at the end of March. I have left Alex over night with family for a night and am fine with that but hes going in to nursery every day in resort sad its very expensive and I am terrified he will hate it. He will be with his big sister and she will love it, thats the only way I can justify it to myself.

He'll start nursery in June part time anywa but a full week suddenly in March feels like a really big thing!!!

hormonalmum Mon 24-Jan-11 11:31:54

Just popping by to say I finally added myself to fb group.- better late than never
One week left before I return to work so trying to sort few things and have have a long list to get through!!

MooseyMoo Mon 24-Jan-11 20:53:29

Thanks for the replies. I am hoping for a BFP - crazy I know with an 8.5month baby. Had slight bled yesterday but stopped overnight and v slight bleeding today. Traumatised DH by showing him my pad blush to prove I wasn't bleeding alot. Ahem. Am going to wait a couple of days before testing again.

Have been feeling rubbish today with really bad back ache. DD is in bed and I'm about to pop into a bath - hmmmm bliss.

Hope everybody has had a good day.

MM

pigleychez Mon 24-Jan-11 21:52:04

Hello all,

Hope everyone is well. We are the house of snot here at the mo which is delightful!

Mooseymoo- Ohhh how exciting! Ive only ever bought 2 tests and both of them were BFP's for my girls

Hollyoaks- Fantastic news!! grin What a relief. I hope the results come back with nothing else to serious.

Heffa- Yay on the crawling.

Den- Thinking of you. Must be a really emotional time for you. I think id kind of agree on doing it all now when hes too young to understand.

Pamlet- Wow on the skiing. envy

DD1 is slowly improving at nursery which is good. Still heartbreaking leaving her crying

Lucy is so very close to crawling, Any day now god help me!
She is pretty mobile now by shuffling, rolling etc and has already started getting into all sorts of trouble. Today alone ive found her under the kids table and chairs set, climbing on the fireplace and pulling it down ontop of herself!! (ony the metal frame) Shes going to be one to watch im sure! shock

sweetkitty Mon 24-Jan-11 22:05:13

hey there sorry I haven't been around just never get the time am going to make more of an effort.

On the Jacob front, he's just a big lump of chubby, gorgeous boyness grin loves his food, cannot get it in his mouth quick enough, still wakes in the night a few times for a feed (or 6), is moving by pulling himself along with his arms, bites and eats everything in site (new Argos catalogue is missing half a front page).

On the baby front, no more for me, 4 is more than enough I think I am at capacity now and my body and mind couldn't handle another pregnancy, I think my heart will always be broody but my head will overrule it, plus DP is going for the snip after his next marathon.

Hope you are all well I have most of you on FB anyway.

wouldliketoknow Tue 25-Jan-11 12:08:36

hi all

mosey try to relax, and prepare as well for a negative, it could be a just a weird period... and then if you are, you are.
pigley my heart goes for you, i only started leaving lo in the nursery, he gets all serious but doesn't cry, i don't think i would leave if he did... hugs.
sk wellcome back, whenever you have a minute you now, here i am instead of attending lunch preparations and doing laundry, i am going, i am going....

i am feeling anxious back to work tomorrow and a whole day too.

newmomma Tue 25-Jan-11 13:29:58

Just wanted to include DD name...

TwentiethCenturyHeffa Wed 26-Jan-11 10:43:00

Den26 - work situation sounds good, hope you get a good deal! I think you're probably right to get the operation out of the way now, but must be a very tough decision.

Pamelat - skiing sounds great I've never been but would love to go, DH is very keen to take the kids sometime. Lovely news re your friend, it's so fab when it works out.

Moosey - good luck with test. FWIW, my periods have been quite irregular since DS.

Pigley - it's lovely when they're mobile isn't it hmm Now DS is crawling I keep finding him all over the place. He crawls to the nearest thing he can stand up on and then looks so happy with himself. Lots of bumps though when he then falls over.

SK - lovely to hear from you, glad Jacob's doing well. I think I will always be a bit broody whatever I do. I need to start thinking about what I might want to do when I'm finished looking after DCs at home. I always planned to go back into librarianship but I think the profession is going to be destroyed by all these library cuts so probably not a good choice.

Newmomma - good to see you, how are things going? Is Ivy a bit more settled now? Hope you're OK.

stuffthenonsense Wed 26-Jan-11 16:45:46

homebirth/egopostulo here changed my mumsnet name, thought it might work, i want to change it again but dont know what to yet as i think i am in identity crisis now SAHM is a reality.
wow! so much has happened to everyone since i last posted on here. thank you rachel for keeping on top of it, i also love the support from the may2010 mummies, you are all amazing!
den, i hope all goes well with the op and you are soon breathing a sigh of relief.

our sleep pattern has been awful and it took me fainting to get DH on board to help with a system but we are getting there.

moosey, i really hope you get the result you want, my periods are all over the place so i now use a blackberry app to keep track, but every month i hope a little, particularly as i have told DH that contraception is his responsibility and we are carelessly careful if you know what i mean.

love seeing the fb pics of cruising babies! we are still happy just sitting and rolling a little, not looking forward to babyproofing.

wouldliketoknow Thu 27-Jan-11 07:52:43

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRNIIIIING, VIETNAM!

hi all

survived first day at work in new office, quite alright actually, all is comin back to me and staff are fab, even the boss.
oscar also survived first day at nursery, played lots, ate lots, hardly ever slept, not a surprise there, and the best part, you have to see how excited he gets when i get home, dh said he didn't get so happy when he picked him up hmm and............ wait for it, slept at 7 pm and still asleep, it took us by surprise, so didn't get him into pijamas, but he is wearing very soft fleeze like clothes, you think that's wrong?
too early for personal but hope that everyone is well, i can feel a namechange coming too but, ...who knows what? all those just reading and not posting, drop a line, will you? and stuffthenonsense, the last time we were carelessly careful i ended up in this thread, iykwim...

stuffthenonsense Thu 27-Jan-11 09:44:05

yay, well done oscar! lets hope it continues.

MooseyMoo Thu 27-Jan-11 17:43:06

AF arrived last night so back to normal life here.

DD loves standing (with help and in walker), not really crawling but is making small attempts. Just very happy to sit and play with her toys. Good for me as I can leave her playing whilst in other room.

She is very vocal though: dada, nana, yaya, baba, gaga and this morning mama.

She's got her 8-12 month review with the HV on Monday - anybody else had their's yet?

WLK: Well done Oscar - glad he enjoyed nursery and you enjoyed work smile

TwentiethCenturyHeffa Sat 29-Jan-11 10:23:37

STN - good namechange. I've been thinking I should change mine sometime. We're always a bit carelessly careful blush I leave responsibility for it to DH because I can't use hormonal contraception.

WLTK - yay for Oscar doing well at nursery and sleeping well Good that your colleagues are nice!

Moosey - sorry your AF arrived, must be good to be back to normal though. Enjoy being able to leave her where she is for now

DS is all over the place now and following his sister around. Lovely to watch but harder to get on with stuff around the house since I don't know where he's going to get to!

Work has called me in for a talk about my 'availability'. I spoke to my boss back in November to say I wouldn't be able to do very much (think I posted here about it) which hasn't changed but it sounds like they're not happy about it. Think I'm just going to resign tbh since I can't do justice to the job and someone else out there probably really needs it. A bit annoyed that I might get a ticking off for something that I explained and had approved though, but will wait and see.

pigleychez Sun 30-Jan-11 13:47:19

SK- Good to hear from you. Glad your all doing well

Stuff- I know what you mean about the identity crisis. I have times when I feel abit lost if you know what I mean.
Hope the sleeping plan is going well.
We are still up once a night for a feed... usually between 4-5 ish. Copeable but prefer not to!

WLTK- Glad the first day back went well and that Oscar was OK at nursery. Ive found the little ones settle quite well as generally at this stage its 'out of sight, out of mind'.
Hope nursery continues to wear him out so you get good nights

Mooseymoo- At least you dont have that on your mind now.
We never got a 8-10mth review with DD.. just a letter saying they were too understaffed. Its anyones guess if we get one for Lucy!

Heffa- Hope the meeting goes well.

Lucy is now mastered Mum, mum, mum which sounds so cute Just love hearing her say it and has started waving. She has also started to do tiny crawls... god help me! She has pulled the fireplace down quite a few times now and seems to make a beeline for it! Little monkey!
oh and this weekend has been attempting to stand herself up!! In the middle of the floor, unaided so guess she will be crusing before we know it too.

Bit stressed her at the mo as ive been trying to arrange my dads 60th birthday but my mum (as ever) turns the simplist thing into a huge drama! So we have had yet another falling outhmm
I can really feel a HUGE blow out arrising soon as for years ive just let her wear me down but im kinda reaching the end of my fuse!
Sounds dramatic over one disagreement but been an ongoing thing for years and theres only so many digs at how she diasgrees with my (apparently terrible) parenting.

On a brighter note... Ive managed to convince DH to redecorate the hall and stairs. He has suprisingly said we can hire a decorator to do it to, so instead of us taking ages to do it bit by bit around the kids it can be done quickly and professionally! woohooo!
Wallpapers choosen and the guys coming tomorrow to quote us.

Suns out here today which looks lovely but its bitterly cold out there. Roll on the summer!

pamelat Mon 31-Jan-11 13:36:44

Hi all pigley you seem to be one of the best mums I know smile

We good, we considered controlled crying, controversial I know but we were desperate but Alex has sorted himself out!! He now just wakes once for his dummy about 2am and hen goes back to sleep happily, a huge relief after months of 4 or 5 or sometimes worse wakings and constant co-sleepings. Dh and I slept in the sme bed for the first time in 5 months or so last night!!

DH has now said what about a 3rd, eeekkk, I think its because we feel ok again now.

Carikube Mon 31-Jan-11 14:36:04

Hi all,
Very me post coming up...
Just back from a week away; we had a lovely time though DD1 seems to be really making use of the tantrum atm. Both DH and MIL gave in to her far too often so she has started having a fit whenever she doesn't get her own way so I think we will be in for an interesting week now that we are back to 'normal'.
DH seems to be over his illness at last though he is still very down about work; we should find out over the next four weeks whether he is being made redundant and I am bracing myself for the worst. DD2 can't decide whether to sleep through or not so I never know when I go to bed whether I'm going to be getting up in the night.

Anyway, general whine over and hope everyone is well!

wouldliketoknow Mon 31-Jan-11 16:06:34

and we have a tooth....

hi all hope everybody is ok, fingers crossed carikube your dh will be ok
heffa, what is it with managers that think once you come back to work no longer have to arrange around the baby?
pigley, your mum sounds like my mil, the baby is perfect and beautiful, even know you are doing everything wrong...!, so that you know, what she says is right because none of her children or grandson she cares for had ever had a tummy upset, or being ill, or had a tantrum or even cry.... and i have it so easy because my baby is good that it is like having no baby to care for, she tells everyone, never mind that dh works all day and i have absolutely no family support, and never get a break from baby...oh, don't get me started, there's nothing wrong with your parenting.

AnAngelWithin Mon 31-Jan-11 20:45:35

Hi all!!

Carikube hope you are feeling better...families are such hard work when you want your kids to learn that you won't give in!!

WLTK yay on the tooth!! Willo has just cut too number EIGHT at the weekend shock

Pamelat, our decision for the 3rd was the hardest...we already had a boy and a girl at the time. But then we just carried on haha

Pigley, yay on the mum mum! DD did say it a couple of times but shes all dad dad dad now!

Moosey sorry about AF.

SK chubby boys are so lovely arent they!? Glad you are enjoing him. I said no more after 4.... hmm

So what's been happening here...not a lot really...just busy busy busy!! DD1 and DD2 were off school most of last week being sick. I now have a queasy tummy. hmm Still trying to lose weight..I lost 3lb last week which is good. Plenty of time on the cross trainer and on the wii active sports workouts lately! Down to 10stone 1 now (was 12 stone 3 before I had willow) another half a stone and I will be happy!! DH stunned me last night saying he would like another baby one day when I said about selling all my baby stuff... shock I don't think sooooooooo!!!!.....

oooh...new icon bear when did that happen?!?!

wouldliketoknow Tue 01-Feb-11 12:34:26

angel, how good to read you so positive, glad everything is going well, even discussing more babies....

getoffme Tue 01-Feb-11 15:18:54

wltk, namechange.

AnAngelWithin Wed 02-Feb-11 12:25:33

WLTK I don't think its an option really....especially not now. I am trying to stay positive, though we seem to be having a lot thrown at us again...the car breaking, unexpected bills etc, but we are trying. That's all we can do at the moment. Only time will tell, but certainly another baby is not on any of my cards in the near future....if ever!... Loving the name change!!!

DancingThroughLife Wed 02-Feb-11 22:04:26

Hi all, long time no see. Can't find the old thread so I don't know what's been happening, but ANGEL!!!!!!!! you're back!!!!!!! grin The pom bear thread was hilarious, some random posh couple who served macaroni cheese or something at a dinner party. It's in classics, but I'll try and find a link. Was hilarious. I can't look at pom bears the same way. Actually, Darcey was eating them at my Aunt's today and I couldn't stop chuckling.

I need a new name too, I fancy a change.

Feeling a bit envy at all these BFPs. I still haven't had AF come back - anyone else?

Darcey just this week out of 3-6 month clothes, she's a little dot now She went into that size at 2 months, so I've got a fantastic 6 months wear out of some of her stuff, yay! She's got two teeth, crawling, standing and so nearly cruising. A right little dynamo. It's hard to keep up with her, so that's why I've not been around much. I do think about you all, all the time. It's good to keep up on fb but I don't have everyone on there.

And pigley, for the record, I am spectacularly in awe of you and your lovely DDs. They are so obviously happy from head to tippy toe, and it's fab to see them into everything on fb. Most people on MN seem to have MIL trouble, but I'm with you - get most of my grief from my mom. Mostly about weaning (sound familiar getoffme?) and her not understanding it, despite me giving her the blw book to read.

Pam - glad Alex is sleeping better now. What a relief for you! We gave in to the CC two months ago and it worked for us, but I know it's not for everyone.

Moosey, I was going to book Darcey in with the GP, but the HV said apparently noone does the 9 month(ish) review anymore confused Going to try anyway as I want to ask about two of her toes that are wonky.

Anyway, enough dramble. See you all soon, will check back when I can.

Hi All, long time no see! I am keeping up with reading and on FB, but so little time to post!

First the me bit - we are all doing fine. DD is still up once a night for a feed, any time between 1am and 4am but only for 20 - 30 minutes so I don't really even wake up now. Just stumble into the nursery chair and then back to bed! We tried to wean her on to formula so that I could be a bit less tied to her and in preparation for going back to work in May, but it appears that she is intolerant to something in the formula. It isn't dairy because she is fine with cow's milk on cereal etc, but whenever she has formula she has tummy cramps, and terrible nappies. So, that means me feeding her for another 3 months. I don't mind, but I hope she is OK by the time it get rounds to May.

My DNiece has been diagnosed as dairy intolerant, so my Dsis has had to cut all dairy out of her diet whilst she is feeding her. DSis is already gluten intolerant herself, so think she must be living on apples and eggs! They have been referred to a paediatric (sp?) dietician for advice on weaning. Hope that all goes OK.

Other than that, things progressing normally here. No teeth yet, and no AF for me, but I am still feeding 4 times per 24 hrs so not surprising. Looking forward to being able to get out soon without being wrapped up in 15 layers!! Getting fed up of DD's pram suit!!

SK - nice to hear from you, I keep up with you on FB, hope you are all feeling better and recovered from the lurgi

Stuff - good namechange, I hope you are feeling a bit better. Hope the sleeping is improving. Next time you feel that you are letting people down, you should ask them if they feel let down by you - I would lay bets on their reply being no! We were carelessly careful on holiday last October and I spent the next three months wondering "what if" - made me realise that I would like another DC but not yet!

Getoffme - another good namechange! Glad Oscar is doing well at nursery, that must be a relief. I find the best policy on "helpful" relatives is just to nod, smile, say you'll take their advice on board, and then carry on exactly the same as you were before.

Moosey - never heard of the 8mth review. Hope it goes well if you get it.

Heffa - hope your meeting goes well, bit off of them to change their minds when you thought you had all this sorted out.

Pigley - best of luck with your Mum. Just focus on your lovely, happy, smiley children when she starts criticising, and take deep breaths! Hope your Dad's party goes well. If your Mum has lots of ideas, could you suggest that she organises it instead?! Love the idea of decorating, I love it too - love picking all the colour schemes, and all the finishing touches for the room. Need to go back to work and earn some money, then we can start decorating this house - lived with textured ceilings and flock wallpaper for far too long!!

Holly - so glad the tests all turned out OK, hope everything is continuing to go well.

Pamelat - fab news on the sleeping, well done for sticking with it! Let us know how it goes with number 3...!

Angel - good to hear you are trying to stay positive, one day at a time and all that - your weight loss is fantastic! I MUST start doing something about my half a stone of remaining baby weight, I won't get back into my work clothes otherwise!

Carikube - hope DH's job situation sorts itself out. It is horrible waiting for news which is so important but which you can do nothing about. Hope it works out for the best.

Dancing - good to hear from you, your DD sounds like she is all go!

Hi to everyone else that I may have missed. Hope all is well with you and yours!
