The Elderberry Helicopter #3, in which we continue to fret and play 'guess the sex'

(992 Posts)

Open to all elderberry grads and anyone who fits the berry criteria: over 30, pregnant with #1 after trying for a loooong time, and nervous as hell. Come on in for handholding and nub theory!

Marking place. Well done Boom. This is working out about a thread per tri for me so should be close to the finish post by the time we get to the next one

Maybe this one merk if your dates keep moving the same way?!

funkymonk Thu 05-Dec-13 20:44:03

Let's start a bunny style list then? I'm interested to see all your due dates and pink or blue...

Can I add myself to the grads fb group? Or is that tempting fate before Wednesday? I'm on the other fb group so what so I need to do?

Lovely shiny new thread!

I have not got out of bed all day except for one bowl of porridge this morning and multiple wees V fed up with the breathing, general aches and pains plus a headache and two nosebleeds. Feel awful and exhausted but can't sleep. Am about to drag myself to the supermarket (debating if I can get away with going in my PJs under my coat grin) and attempt to make some food.
How many more days of this?? Thank goodness DH is home in the morning

BlindKitty Fri 06-Dec-13 18:20:10

Oh dear merk you really are suffering. Wish I could suggest something to make it go away. Did you get your blood results back yet?

No, getting the results on Wed. I had a weird half dream this afternoon while dozing that I was feeling ill because I was in labour... Was a bit shock when I woke up until I realised it was a dream!

BlindKitty Fri 06-Dec-13 18:55:40

Oh not surprised! Damn dreams! I thought I'd felt the baby the other night but now I think it was just a dream!

It won't be long now. Is your 12 wk scan pic on fb? I need to have a gender guess pre your scan

BlindKitty Sat 07-Dec-13 06:52:34

merk ah now that sounds a bit more like the professor we know and love!!! as much as i want you to theres no point! it's on mn but its a terrible pic so I doubt you'll get anywhere! Got our Xmas sexing scan 22nd (wishing I'd brought it forward now grr). You'll have to just guess, I'm afraid! I guess boy!

Morning all

Quite enjoying the novelty of a hangover-free morning after a wedding party! Found a dress in the back of the wardrobe in the end that just about stretched so even managed to look halfway decent.

How is everyone? Merk you poor thing, are you feeling any better? Is Mr Merk back with you yet? I've had a couple of weird dreams where I had the babies, in one of them I had them and then forgot I'd had them, and then felt guilty for not feeding them for too long!

We're going to get the Christmas tree today, I'm a scrooge and maintain that it's too early but Mr Boom seems to be in a festive mood this year! Anyone want to take bets on how long it'll be before Boomdog II eats/wees on it?

BlearyeyedLol Sat 07-Dec-13 11:34:13

Boom I've seen your fb pic and you don't look half decent!!!! You look gorgeous grin
I also liked the hangover free after parties as well as the ability to see what really goes on when the whole world is pissed!!
Merk how u feeling x

BlindKitty Sat 07-Dec-13 12:49:26

Yep she did look pretty hot tbf! Really must get myself together and go and meet the berries yet I'm still p£&@ing around on my phone lying in bed!
