I liked this one. smile

Figgygal Wed 07-Aug-13 12:51:31

Ooh good choice i missed that one!!

QueenofClean Wed 07-Aug-13 13:39:38

grin Marks place!

QueenofClean Wed 07-Aug-13 13:39:50

Should say plaice hehe

mopsytop Wed 07-Aug-13 13:52:50

Next time Octo!

Xiaoxiong Wed 07-Aug-13 15:30:22

So many good thread names...we'll get round to them all eventually grin

I don't have any gorgeous newborn pictures like gary and kat but I've posted a picture of my 31 week belly on my profile taken at midnight last night for my MIL.

Looking at it I can kind of see why they tested me for gestational diabetes and why everyone keeps telling me I'm about to pop, I certainly hope not

Aethelfleda Wed 07-Aug-13 17:50:10

Are you sure there's just the one in there, xiao?

<ducks to avoid a flying sardine>

(you look exceedingly trim otherwise! I am guessing the camera angle maximises bump?)

GaryBuseysTeeth Wed 07-Aug-13 18:46:04

I loled at fred title! grin

I've put a few pics of DS2 on here, that's a mighty fine bump you've got there Xiao!
Going off to read previous fredend but congrats to Kat flowers

Aethelfleda Wed 07-Aug-13 18:55:44

Ooh yes, very well done Kat!

flowers flowers brew

Xiaoxiong Wed 07-Aug-13 19:08:16

aethel haha bloody ha grin <follows sardine with conger eel> I guess I just grow really really big babies confused

gary are the pics on your profile? In which case you need to make it public so we can see and get all broody.

GaryBuseysTeeth Wed 07-Aug-13 19:59:19

Pics are public now, cheers Xiao, I knew I forgot to do something!

Right, last fred;
The last decent Dr was Chris Ecclestone, Scottish overacting shouty man & the young kooky one were both rubbish. <runs away>

Mopsy, glad Italy was amazing! Hope Minimopsy has been treated to massive hugs since you've returned & she had a massive grin for you when she first saw you.

Xiao, thanks for the website link, lovely gift ideas! I want the wagon/sled (for the DS's obv.)

Seven, we have a nappy escape artist too, I think it was Aethel (apologies if it wasn't & credit where it's due) who suggested on the last fred that putting them on backwards stops them stripping!
Hurrah for your new Macbook!

Northen, hope you're feeling back to normal today & <pompoms> for the For Sale sign!

Good luck with the weight loss Mopsy!

Kat, I know our DS's have the same name; my girls names of choice were Cordelia, Selina (discounted because of DS's name), Elizabeth & Natalia...Octo has lovely names for her DC too, stole one of them blush so maybe you could steal her DD's name! <mwhaha>

I gained 40lbs with DS2, lovely thing is 15lbs has gone already (hurrah for water retention & pushing baby out)...feeling terribly flabby & unfit atm & itching to exercise again asap.

Aethelfleda Wed 07-Aug-13 21:20:11

Ah, xiao, you luffs me really. And your existing DC is beautiful, so clearly you are growing another charmer in there. Charm takes up space!

Lovely names gary! and how's it going over your end peril? we are in holiday packing mode, the MIL awaits!

<distributes large decaf lattes to all along with sausage sarnies and buttered mushroom baguettes for the veggies>

Faffin Wed 07-Aug-13 21:23:53

You chose my fred name smile

Impressive bump xiao. It's very neatly all bump though, you're looking good!

Gary would love to see your pics, but it won't let me click on you still

Just back from lovely afternoon tea in London with my Mum and sister. Ate so much I now have a bump to rival xiao's

<crawls in from late meeting>

<marks plaice>

GBT still can't get at your pics; if I can't have another baby for a few years I can at least moon over and want to steal look at yours! Wail!

And that goes for you too Kat; massive congratulations by the way! wink grin

Xiaoxiong Wed 07-Aug-13 21:58:27

In case kat needs more inspiration our girls' name shortlist was: Morwenna, Karenza, Sennen, Seren, Isolde.

Gary I can't click on your name either - you have to make your profile public as well as the pictures (top right, click "my mumsnet" then "my profile", then all the way at the bottom select "yes - make my profile visible").

You guys are all very sweet re bump - makes me feel better that I have already grown out of a couple of maternity tops that lasted me till 40 weeks with DS shock

aethel isn't a conger eel in the face a sign of firm friendship? wink When are you back from MIL?

mopsy encouraging pompoms for weightloss, missed that at the end of the last thread.

faffin what'd you eat? (I love vicariously eating more through others - greedy, moi?)

I can't work out how to add photos to my profile on my phone but will get the laptop out tomorrow.

She's called Imogen Juno and is still perfect although much more aggressive in her latch and has already cracked a nipple

Xiaoxiong Wed 07-Aug-13 22:11:33

I literally caught my breath at that kat, what an amazing name!! I worry our chosen name for DS2 is too boring but it's the only one DH and I can agree on at the moment.

<lobs over the lansinoh>

Aw, thanks. My lansinoh is out of date!

I have added photos although they appear to be upside down...

Figgygal Wed 07-Aug-13 22:29:49

Beautiful name!! I so jealous i want another baby so am off to sulk like a grumpy teen grin

1 of my coworkers announced her pg today too was very happy for her obviously

PerilousStiletto Wed 07-Aug-13 22:30:35

Mr Ecclestone - the only really true Rahhhh-worthy Doctor ever. I quite agree gary. smile
And absolutely yes, a quite excellent fred title, faffin. I would say the "Best Fred" but if I mistyped/lost an s, I'd be in terrible bother. wink ha ha! One can larf.
Xiao i am envious of the babies, and even very, very envious of your beautifully, lovely bump.
I'm definitely not pg. After 5 days of AF lightness... well, welcome home Texas. Nuff said. (If you didn't catch the earlier reference, forget it, TMI, and not v important.)
The upside of that (if there is one) is I'm orf to Copenhagen again tomorrow, and off to Tivoli to be wined and dined at Nimb whilst watching a rock concert Danish style. smile So at least I can have a drink, and have been promised champagne by the most charming supplier who is doing the entertaining (am v lucky - even if it is not Hop's supplier!). Home saturday morning to be whisked away by the BOi and Dh to el caravan (oh the glamour!) until Tuesday night. A mini holiday. A luxury wedding weekend in Italy it is not (a la mopsy), but a static on a lake in North Lincs will do me for now. smile

PerilousStiletto Wed 07-Aug-13 22:32:22

aw figgy... Time to work on your DH again? (--like literally!--)

SevenReasonsToSmile Wed 07-Aug-13 22:32:54

Congrats kat lovely name. Still can't get onto your profile.

xiao your bump is very neat -- though enormous--. Are you willing to share your possible name for DS2?

We have MIL round tomorrow, should be fun...

SevenReasonsToSmile Wed 07-Aug-13 22:40:25

Sorry about AF peril. I don't agree with Christopher Eccleston though, too shouty and macho. I'm done judging doctors though, according to fb I'm shallow even if it wasn't meant to be taken seriously

queen how's the caking going? I have a business name, and a logo , and I'm setting up a website. I need to do some serious decorating practice before I'm officially in business though so it'll be a while as yet.

Figgygal Wed 07-Aug-13 22:45:46

No baby luck here peril money situation still crap have just shelled out £300 for failed mot and repairs still need 2 new tyres and on top of all the money woes dh health issues continues with new dr suggesting appears arthritis and SLE lupus shock I think we both preferred it when we thought it was gout......further tests to follow.

Champagne sounds nice though I'm going to Swindon tomorrow with work.....not really comparable is it grin
