Getting thread in place in readiness!

Hmmmm..... This place might get dusty if doesn't get used soon...... Anyone got any nesting instinct left to keep it sparkling for the babies???? Mine has evaporated again!!

But I'll put a few things in the freezer here, help yourselves when you need. Raspberry leaf tea and dates anyone??

Angelico Mon 24-Sep-12 23:24:24

grin Crazy

But for the record although I've arranged snacks if you divils eat ALL the cake before my return I will not be held responsible for my actions...

Kyyria Tue 25-Sep-12 03:35:03

Mmm...cake drool

<wanders in with a feather duster and lots of furniture polish... mmm.. furniture polish..>

<hastily replaces cakes in preparation for Angelico's arrival>

And here's some biccies too. Please take them or I'll eat them all <wipes crumbs from mouth surreptitiously>

Oooh... surprised to still have an empty room... I am feeling all nesty so shall give it a sparkly clean ready for today's arrivals.

swishes mop about

Now... come on then Angelico, CWest and (possibly) liege?

I'm with you, Mickey, it's all quite a way off (due date 1st Nov). Though I'm WAY bored of work already.

Ooooh, have been lurking around the other thread, but if I can mark my place on here will bring jelly tots & turkish delight to the table (well, sadly I'm not sure I'd get to the table due to bump but I'd damn well try).

ELCS on the 11th Oct with a little breech boy- my first. Am oscillating between bricking it due to it being a baby & not knowing what to do with small people but yet soooo being over being pregnant.. Am squashed and grumpy and not appreciating a recently acquired nickname of "my little pygmy hippo" from DH hmm

Any tips for this nesting instinct to kick in by the way or should i just get a cleaner My house could really do with a super clean..

Smorgs Tue 25-Sep-12 16:59:41

Just marking my place, hope to see some news on here soon. In the meantime, my cake baking skills being somewhat lacking, I can offer you the French post natal holy trinity of champagne, unpasteurised goats cheese and some (highly unethical) foie gras. [Grin]

<Puts up "welcome home" banner and blows up balloons in anticipation of Velo>

WantAnOrange Tue 25-Sep-12 20:28:18

I bought a cheesecake today, like a slice? before I eat the whole thing?

Beccus Tue 25-Sep-12 22:17:33

Just being nosey, wondering if there are any updates....bet this thread will be busy soon smile

YompingJo Wed 26-Sep-12 12:16:07

Oh god, cheesecake! I am so grumpy about having been unable to pursue my (very pregnancy unfriendly) hobbies for fecking months now, all I want to do is eat sweet things all day as compensation. I suggest that you lock the cheesecake away, Wantanorange or at least hide it behind some of Kyyria's balloons otherwise I'll inhale the thing in one breath and not even have the grace to look guilty about it!

LoopyLa Wed 26-Sep-12 15:00:25

<hauls in 10 cases of Prosecco>

<follows it with additional contraband - pate, smoked salmon & stinky soft cheese>

<then a sack of Twiglets just cos I luffs them>

Now, what are the chances of any of the above being left over for my arrival?! grin grin

WantAnOrange Wed 26-Sep-12 17:01:55

Well I ate half of it last night Yomping. The other half is waiting as a reward for when I've finished this bloody endless day!

crazypaving Thu 27-Sep-12 10:59:21

Yomping I'm doing the same. My Dad brought some amazing continental chocolate this weekend and I've eaten 2.5 bars plus a pack of naice biscuits I was supposed to be taking round someone's house yesterday. That's in the last 2 days.

Need a pig emoticon.

YompingJo Thu 27-Sep-12 11:58:25

Ha ha ha, glad I'm not alone! I'm always buying DH sweet treats then eating them myself blush

Elpis Thu 27-Sep-12 18:23:53

I've had a chunky KitKat and now I want a cheeseburger and chips, please. Bear in mind I am breastfeeding TWO offspring.

crazypaving Thu 27-Sep-12 20:33:34

Go Elpis!!

Yomping I bought biscuits for the mw and ate the whole packet myself. My DH pretty much cried when he got home. I've bought another and it's takinga ll the willpower I have not to scoff the fecking lot.

At least when bfing there's a good excuse...

Elpis Fri 28-Sep-12 16:19:23

Lord, we didn't even offer the MW a cup of tea when she came round this morning to check on us. Do Belgians drink tea?

I think the chief difference to emerge between me and DS since our separation is that he gets to sleep, and I don't.

Angelico Fri 28-Sep-12 17:48:54

Hello! I am home! smile Copying this into both the AN and PN threads, can't wait to get caught up with you all and see which new beans have arrived! smile x

Emmiedarling Fri 28-Sep-12 21:06:40

Hello! Just writing from hospital - My little one is here!!!!

Freddie was born 25th September - though his edd was 9th October.

He's lying next to me and I'm absolutely besotted....

Congratulations emmie!! Love love loveee the name. DP hated it and wouldn't let me have it sad

crazypaving Sat 29-Sep-12 09:07:46

Hooray, congratulations emmie!!!! Hope you're recovering well!

Elpis Sat 29-Sep-12 16:04:34

sadsadsad

Baby blues have struck, three days exactly after the birth. I guess it's better to know why I'm crying because even I know it's not the fact my mother would have been 74 today.

DS feeding excellently still, which helps with overwhelming emotion and engorgement - thank God I can still do this.

YompingJo Sat 29-Sep-12 17:55:22

thanks Elpis, you've been through a lot. It's just hormones leaving your body - which I know you know and it probably doesn't help to be told, but it may help to put it into perspective. Give yourself a hug, give yourself a break, eat lots of chocolate. This too shall pass.
