Welcome Aprilites smile

Hello! I'm still here too smile

Unfortunately we still have an intermittent screamer too. Things have definitely improved but it's still a case of when she's good, she's very good and when she's bad, she's horrid. She had a 40 minute melt down after I collected her from school this afternoon, from which we're all still recovering.

Glad that the scan went well Daisy smile I can't believe that I'm jealous of pregnant women but I am - I'd love to have number 3. It's not going to happen for a whole host of reasons (money, work, lifestyle, house size, blah blah blah) but heck, I'm broody... and the baby is still so wee too. I don't know what's come over me. It took me at least a year to even contemplate have another one after DD1 was born!

Talking of babies, I wonder if ecuse has had number two yet. I think she decreed it would have be born by now!

Ooh, glad the scan was all good!

Th Screamer is a lot better at the moment! He was pretty horrendous at the beginning of half term, but we implemented some new rewards and went zero tolerance on the screaming (he goes to his room if he starts on the clearly manipulative route) and he's improved no end. When he's good, he's absolutely adorable! Which is fortunately more common currently.

Daisy17 Wed 19-Nov-14 16:56:43

How is, I quote, "the screamer"?! grin

Daisy17 Wed 19-Nov-14 16:56:07

Sorry to hear that, must be very difficult. I can see both points of view, even now I'm going for it!! Wake up in a panic quite oftenthinking WTAF have I done...... Nice seeing it today though, measurement was well within normal (S's wasn't and gave us a scare) and it did some loop the loops for me. smile Feeling better now too which is helping at school!

IKYTWTLYA Tue 18-Nov-14 15:40:18

Ooh, good luck with the scan!

DH is still adamant he doesn't want #2. I don't know whether to give up hope that he'll change his mind and get on with life, or keep hoping he'll change his mind. Well, I know which of those I am doing, and which I should! hmm

Daisy17 Mon 17-Nov-14 20:14:26

Strop, even. Add to dictionary?!?! Why does my phone not know strop?!

Daisy17 Mon 17-Nov-14 20:13:10

Ah, good, glad it's you! Think it's only us knocking around here still. All good, second dating scan on Wed when baby will hopefully be long enough to do the nuchal scan properly. Glad I'm getting to see it again as I'm still not at all convinced I'm pregnant and not just ill! Having fun getting S's big boy room ready and furnished, although he had a massive strip earlier because I wouldn't get the painter back to paint the ceiling blue as well as the walls.......

IKYTWTLYA Mon 17-Nov-14 18:03:22

That took me aaaages! But yes! Well done!

Daisy17 Mon 17-Nov-14 07:42:11

Baker's dozen/things required after surgery?! I'm not good at this......

IKYTWTLYA Sun 16-Nov-14 20:20:27

Hellooooo... <echos>

It's me, I NC'd. The one with the screamer.

What's the news?

ecuse Sat 04-Oct-14 20:31:09

I have decreed the baby shall be delivered at 39+6. That would be perfect, thank you baby-gods.

TwentiethCenturyGirl Sat 04-Oct-14 19:54:13

Get those feet well and truly put up ecuse. Hooray for loafing soon!

Although you know, you'll regret wishing that the baby isn't early when you're 40+10 voice of experience wink grin

ecuse Thu 02-Oct-14 14:28:28

Yep, hooray! Had initially planned to go to 38 weeks but just really CAN'T BE ARSED at the moment so have agreed with manager I can stop at 36. 2 more weeks after this week (plus I'm taking Wednesdays as leave to help me cope with the weeks, so only 9 more working days inc tomorrow. Hooray!) Looking forward to a few weeks of LOAFING. Hope the baby isn't early grin

Daisy17 Wed 01-Oct-14 17:19:05

How are you feeling, ecuse, saw from FB that you're stopping work earlier? thanks

Daisy17 Wed 01-Oct-14 17:17:55

Yes, sick bug, thanks DS....over now, although annoying that recovering means returning to "normal" levels of nausea!! Should have had first visit to GP yesterday about pregnancy, she phoned instead which was great. She very reassuringly but baldly stated that I needn't worry about the baby, it would keep taking what it needed and just leave me feeling worse. Nice! Midwife booked for 24 October. Beginning to feel scarily real! shock

13Stitches Mon 29-Sep-14 21:51:31

Oh no Daisy. <gentle shoulder pat> I'm sure Beanlet will be fine.

On the plus side, if it's a bug it'll most likely be over by tomorrow! Take the rest of the week off and try to relax and recover fully. None of that struggling back before you're ready to keep up appearances.

Daisy17 Mon 29-Sep-14 21:14:28

That's exactly what happened to me once, 20th - small glass bottle of cooking cider at the age of about 33. Madness!! But feels marvellous, doesn't it?

Having been sick four times this afternoon and evening I am concluding that I have DS's sick bug. hmm At least, let us hope that is all it is otherwise I am in big trouble for the next six weeks.......I presume little beanlet will be alright in there?!

TwentiethCenturyGirl Mon 29-Sep-14 18:55:17

Oh dear - hope the day improved Daisy.

The particularly sad thing about yesterday was that I was only buying a bottle of cider to cook a gammon joint in. Definitely not the action of an underage delinquent!

Daisy17 Mon 29-Sep-14 08:22:57

Feeling rubbish this morning. Not even quite 6 weeks yet. Uh oh....... Thankfully first pupil appears to be running late!

Daisy17 Mon 29-Sep-14 08:21:21

Fabulous!! Go girl..... grin

13Stitches Mon 29-Sep-14 06:37:13

grin 20th

TwentiethCenturyGirl Sun 28-Sep-14 20:30:14

I was definitely more tired during pregnancy this time round, although I recovered from the birth much more quickly. Swings and roundabouts...

<saddo smug alert> While we're discussing being three years older, I would like to point out that I got ID'd buying booze in the supermarket this afternoon grin. I don't look under 25 (or whatever they like you to be now) but it briefly made my afternoon!

Daisy17 Fri 26-Sep-14 20:56:04

Haha! Inadvertently. Twas the sleep deficit I meant, really.
Poor little S, he's been sick about six times today. I feel very smug guilty as by the time I got home it had all stopped. Poor DP. S had perked up by bedtime, DP and I noticed a return of normal cheekiness......

13Stitches Fri 26-Sep-14 18:24:20

Sympathy for you too ecuse.

Daisy there's some gross vom bugs about at the minute. Fingers crossed you avoid it.

ecuse Fri 26-Sep-14 15:55:38

Daisy did you just point out that I'm 3 years older?! :p
