Oh tallyra welcome to my pity party - I feel just awful, and so confused about what on earth to eat. All I feel like right now is a bowl of plain white rice.
Instead as I am at work, I'm sucking slowly on fruit pastilles - this has also taken the nacho-taste away.
I am seriously considering going into my colleague's office and having a nap. The remaining people in my mostly deserted office wouldn't notice if I disappeared for a bit, I'm sure of it!

Tally are you home?? Any improvement at all?
Sympathy to you both x

boom Omg you've tried so hard. No one would think less of you if he ended up going to the shelter.

brody tally sorry you're still feeling rubbish. sad

merk how'd it go with the toss boss?

Yesterday I had my pdr:
Boss: so where do you see yourself in 1 years time?
Me: hopefully higher up the ladder or in paeds actually on maternity planning more family

kitty got to love the pregnancy-induced fibbing!

tally, brod, sorry you're feeling pants sad

Could someone handhold me this morning? I don't know why but the closer I get to my scan on Weds the more certain I am that they won't both have made it. Just terrified of hearing bad news, I can't bear the wait!

Here offering both hands and a shoulder to lean on boom. I know the wait must be horrendous but try to stay positive, you had good news before and it can happen again. Thinking of you.

Boom have another hand. The wait for the scan is horrific. We all know that feeling and the fear and the fact that your mind won't rest x

<throws arms around boom> can you not go and have a sneaky Doppler go at work to put your mind at rest?

Well went on an all day drinking binge today (minus the alcohol obviously!). I was doing such a good job trying to convince people I was drinking that I had to admit tol my friend that I'd been on pretend wine as he was worried about me driving haha! Will be so easy when I can just come clean and tell people why I'm not drinking!

Thank you for all the hands to hold guys! Still fretting madly about the scan, Wednesday is too far away.. I had a go with the doppler, but I can only hear one heartbeat (this is probably totally normal but does nothing to stop me worrying like a crazy fool)..

Kitty I was at a wedding yesterday, somehow got through and entire day of free bar, toasts and waiters topping up glasses without getting sussed. Lucky for me everyone else was battered!

Looks like we're going to need a new thread soon...who's going to do the honours? (Not me, I have no idea how to make a thread confused )

Wednesday is getting ever closer boom - will be thinking of you!

We've been to the pub in pretty small groups a couple of times since the BFP so it does seem pretty conspicuous when I'm not drinking. I've noticed how when I decline alcohol, the women always end up being mega apologetic saying 'oh I know I shouldn't really...' blah blah, as if I'm some smug demure non-drunkard! I can't wait to tell people so they stop feeling bad about their own drinking.

Morning folks. It's nearly Wednesday! (Sort of)

Everyone's so quiet....where have we all gone?

Brod you could just look at it as doing everyone a public health service! Nobody's noticed at all that I'm not drinking, either that or none of my friends have booze-related guilt..

Right, I'm having a go at making the new thread. This may take me a while..

Thread Part Deux

Did it work? Did it? DID IT?

It worked boom, well done!
How's everyone this week? I'm laid in bed dreading work grin

I am SO clever <awards self chufty badge>

I'm off this week, hurrah! And need to be, the last few days have been so busy that I don't know if I'm coming or going. Just been up to walk the dogs and seriously considering getting back under the duvet..
