Any remaining lurkers, would you like to de-lurk and announce yourselves? We won't bite!

fruit think I am very naive...(even though dh says I'm negative) I keep looking at wonder weeks and thinking right 10 more days etc. I think it keeps me going ...the hope!
that and shopping!

MadamGazelleIsMyMum Fri 22-Mar-13 07:53:03

Hi sheep and yoko

Sleep still worse here than before 17 weeks. He's 20 weeks today.

kyz I bake with DD (2) and DS watches from a bouncer. I have to do everything very fast, and by hand, because DD does like the food processor "no like it", said very firmly. grin

Re virginity, I lost mine to my DH. Ahhhhh. But not after marriage, and not in a he's the only man for me way. We dated when we were teenagers. It was a couple of weeks before my 16th birthday. I was the last of my friends. We broke up a few months later. Stayed in touch. Had what I thought would be a quick and dirty fling 10 years later, which wouldn't get my numbers up anymore. I blinked and we're married with 2 DC!

Contradictionincarnate Fri 22-Mar-13 07:55:15

oh and kirrin sorry to hear about your night ... I think dd does this a lot and its for comfort ...she sometimes almost chokes on the milk as she is mostly sleeping sucking I was thinking of trying a dummy again ... I have bought tt traditional latex ones was going to substitute my boob when she least suspected!

YokoUhOh Fri 22-Mar-13 07:56:01

Thanks for recognising me detective! I tried so hard to post in the early days but you guys are just so hardcore <taps shitty iPhone keypad laboriously>

Virginity? I was 17, my boyfriend was a riddled Keith from Prodigy lookalike. It was horrendous sad

Looking forward to this sleep regression business sad am I right in thinking it's because they feed less during the day because they're too easily distracted??

Catbag Fri 22-Mar-13 07:57:21

Crap, took me so long to write that inbetween changing nappies that I missed another couple of lurkers! Hey yoko (you've bobbed in before, haven't you?) and sheep!

Contradictionincarnate Fri 22-Mar-13 07:58:27

wow maddame that's quite romantic! smile
mine and dh first date was to the wedding of the girl dh lost his virginity to, still one of the best nights of my life!

TheDetective Fri 22-Mar-13 07:58:50

I'm going to have to wake O for the school run shock

<cries>

Fucking DPs work pissing about with his shift times. Cunts

Contradictionincarnate Fri 22-Mar-13 08:01:06

Yoko hi ...how old is your lo ...maybe you will avoid it ...think that's what we have here though started at 14.5 weeks but she eats as much in the day if not more!

Kyzordz Fri 22-Mar-13 08:16:13

I will just get the ikea one vq when I get round to going to sodding ikea! I think he would sit and watch for the most part, I just had visions of him randomly starting screaming just as I need to take something out of the oven or something! madam your dd sounds cute, I get where she's coming from with the food processor, they are quite scary... And take too long to wash, might aswell do it by hand lol!

I should get dressed really.

That is quite sweet madam re your dh, my Aunty and her husband did similar, were together at 16, split but married years later and have 3 dc's now

Clarella Fri 22-Mar-13 08:31:04

ooh Mrs Jupiter are you here too?!

not even tried to lurk but I have a place in my heart for you all grin

especially the lovely garden and she knows why - it really helped hon

StuntNun Fri 22-Mar-13 08:32:15

School is closed by snow! I asked DS1 if he would tidy up his bedroom and he said he wanted to play with his Captain America Lego. He did not like my suggestion that he plays Captain America Tidies His Bedroom. hmm

I lost my virginity to my DH as well. On our wedding night. blush Collective group Aaaaw please.

YokoUhOh Fri 22-Mar-13 08:35:35

catbag yep I bobbed over a few times but got outplayed by everyone else! smile

contra he's 19 weeks tomorrow. Gonna own up and say he's never slept through but only wakes for 10 mins for a comfort suck for a feed and drops back off straight away. Does this mean I'm lucky or lazy or making a rod (hate that phrase)? smile

Clarella Fri 22-Mar-13 08:36:22

ooo could I have fb link? I might be better at that!!

PurplePidjin Fri 22-Mar-13 08:39:31

I'm off to Ikea today <smug> i need a cot, mattress and high chair.

I'll be the slightly frazzled one in the Southampton branch getting road rage with the fucking buggy and blocking the aisle while i give up and wrap!

Mmmmmmmmm breakfast grin

Clarella Fri 22-Mar-13 08:39:36

yoko my lo does the same. I'd be fine with it if the monkey didn't need about half an hour of winding after even a 3 min suck. since been shown an additional upside down technique (trying to find on YouTube vq, hard to describe!) it was like the Olympics last night. he slept through it all. which is somat I guess.

Catbag Fri 22-Mar-13 08:42:35

Pikz Fri 22-Mar-13 08:45:13

Stunt that is lovely!

Catbag... Next time I'm home I shall come take you to ikea!

Lovely to see all the lurkers <waves>

LO has napped long enough for me to shower, shave legs and get dressed! I may not go to work looking like a slummy mummy after all!

StuntNun Fri 22-Mar-13 08:45:44

Clarella the FB page is called Nov 12 Babies and has a picture of a woman's tummy with a flower on. If you request to join then the lovely DH21 will add you.

Kyzordz Fri 22-Mar-13 08:46:56

I don't think I'm ever eating again. Got some new jeans yesterday, first thing I have got for myself since ds was born (seriously). I got a size 14, thinking i'd have lots of room. I do not. They barely do up. Was a size 10 before I got pregnant :'(

Am not happy. Am gutted actually

Sorry, very very shallow post <backs away from Fred>

Catbag Fri 22-Mar-13 08:48:08

In other news, mechanic has just brought my car back. They are somewhat perplexed in that it has just started working again, with minimal intervention. They bump-started it to get it to the garage and it has worked fine since then hmm Not complaining, but absence of a problem means absence of fixing, which in my world, means that it will go wrong while I am 50 miles from home and out with the twins. Maybe. <<suspicious>>

Pikz Fri 22-Mar-13 08:49:34

Kyz you are not shallow. I think everyone of us often feels like that. I have a paddy every time I open my wardrobe of beautiful clothes and realise none fit me. Hugs.

capedcrusader25 Fri 22-Mar-13 08:51:14

kyz hugs - don't forget it actually isn't that long since you've had E. Please don't be hard on yourself sad

Snow is really bad up my way. So bad that Alton Towers has actually closed!! shock I've never known Towers to shut, crazy stuff.

Catbag Fri 22-Mar-13 08:53:08

kyz Not shallow at all, especially if you have spent a lot of time being a smaller size. I hate the way bits of my body wobble when I walk. I am seriously not used to it. And you would have thougt that breastfeeding twins would be a good way of shedding weight, but no, mine is one of thise bodies that refuses to let go of any weight until it is sure that I might not need to emergency-feed an infant. That is usually about 18 months after I have finished feeding sad

pikz If i have not got to ikea by the time you come home, I am totally holding you to that! grin

BigPigLittlePig Fri 22-Mar-13 08:54:01

<scrabbles on floor for pieces of matchsticks that were foolishly thrown away the other day>

<wedges matchsticks into eyelids>

Morning lurkers.
Kyz LO in bumbo or similar, whisk at the speed of light, set a timer for oven-baked goods or you'll forget to take them out.

Pleasantries over....
Fucking jabs.
Fucking snoring man in my bed. Who was dreaming of boxing.
Fucking rain.

YokoUhOh Fri 22-Mar-13 09:08:09

clarella upside down? <tries to touch toes, falls over>

I can suggest an alternative to going to IKEA - the eBay iPhone app! There's an antilop high chair on there for less that 30 quid Inc. postage.
