Congrats Raspberry and Maybe!

Not booked ante natal classes yet, I want to get the move next week out the way first

BNmum Fri 13-Sep-13 20:23:31

My sympathies to all those that have loss a parent.

Congratulations on Maybe and Raspberry

I hope I can remember how to look after a newborn as I have no intention of doing any antenatal classes this time round.

I popped in a few threads back, have been trying to read all even if I didnt post so excuse if I dont post to often!! Sickness and nausea still a bit of a problem atm. Glad scanees had good experiences today :0) im 12 weeks tomorrow so hoping the ms goes soon, anyone still getting any? Due 29th march.

Sorry to hear of some losing parents. Thats tough going. I couldnt imagine my life without my mum. My dad, well I always hoped that he would come through as a proper dad, but he's wrecked my mums life, he is a nasty piece of work, and treated us so badly. So to me he is not my dad. I know that must sound awful but he has always been a bad dad. And for those of you who have a dad that cares is a wonderful thing, hold onto their memory as that is dear. :0)

Wow, sorry got all ranty there :0/

Scan due on Monday, Eeeeeeeek really excited! Anyone else got a scan that day??

Gawj hope your doggy is better soon!

Bnmum im the same on remembering yhe newborn thing, my ds is 4 now so seems like donkeys yonks ago! I don't think we're doing antenatal this time but now im wondering if we should!! Lol!

Ok ive waffled! Sorry! :0/

LyraSilvertongue Sat 14-Sep-13 01:17:21

This thread is so quiet without Prambo. Come back soon, lady!

I'm up late for the first time in ages. Boys with their dad tonight so I can have a lie-in in the morning.

SoSurprised Sat 14-Sep-13 04:52:09

Sorry for your losses MTBMummy and Pirates.

Gawj hope the pup is feeling better.

Wonder77 Sat 14-Sep-13 07:18:49

Congrats on all scans . Lovely. I've still got sickness Abi , I'm 12 w so hoping it goes soon as feel pig sick every evening and going to bed at 830!!!

Wonder77 Sat 14-Sep-13 07:20:23

Just wondering whether to have a biscuit for breakfast, it's a slippery slope!

Imeg Sat 14-Sep-13 07:30:10

Abi, this may not be what you want to hear but I'm 15+5 and still feeling very nauseous in the mornings, and brought up my dinner last night.... I think for most (lucky...) people it goes away a bit sooner than this though. And I do feel a bit more energetic than I did earlier on.

RaspberrysAndIcecream Sat 14-Sep-13 07:54:00

Wonder I had coco pops for breakfast - it was awesome!! grin <bad influence icon>

I'm on Skype just waiting for my relatives in Australia to switch on - today's the day I get to tell them about the baby!!! So bloody excited!!!

OwlinaTree Sat 14-Sep-13 08:12:22

Morning all! I think I've decided against NCT, think I might join a class after the birth and meet people that way. Good luck to those who are doing it tho.

I was still waiting for the old thread to fill up! In more exciting news I think I felt the baby move yesterday evening. We were in the flicks and I definitely felt some sort of fluttery movement. Course it could have just been digestion, but I hope it was the baby.

Congrats on good scan results, glad more low risks. Ours came back low, although the actual odds were not that low, but I am quite old. But the letter said low risk so trying not to worry.

Sorry to people who have lost parents. My stepmum died several years ago, not at all the same relationship, but I know my step sisters miss her everyday, especially at these milestone events. It's so lovely you are keeping their memory alive by talking to your children about them, as they grow they will understand more. My niece is 8 now and although was only 18 months when Nana died, still 'remembers' her because they've always looked at photos of them and had them on display.

I'm supposed to be having a lie in now but I'm going to have to get up, I'm so hungry!

BakingEating Sat 14-Sep-13 08:30:36

Hi Abi I'm 13+3 today and I found that my sickness really wore off during week 12. I still get some symptoms but it's much, much better. Hang on in there!

commsgirl Sat 14-Sep-13 08:31:28

Congrats on the good scans smile

Owl so exciting that you're feeling movement. How far along are you?

Raspberry enjoy telling your family smile

Gaw hope your puppy is feeling better today!

For those of you who've lost parents, my grandad passed away when I was seven but before my youngest two cousins were born. There were always pictures around and they'd always hear stories about him. They're 11 and 16 now and talk about him like they knew him. Seconding what Abi said really, if you keep the memory alive for them when they're young then eventually they'll do that all by themselves.

We're going to see a house today, I really want it! Just hoping we love it as much as we thing we will.

commsgirl Sat 14-Sep-13 08:32:34

Also Abi I'm 14+1 today and still have the odd wave of nausea but nothing like what I had up until week 12. Hope it'll start easing off for you too!

rescoonetwothree Sat 14-Sep-13 08:55:23

Morning Martians!

Wonder what is that little icon thing? I've been confused by it for ages!

IceNoSlice Sat 14-Sep-13 09:07:01

Morning all. Grey it's a biscuit, there's a list of all the icons if you scroll down. A jammy dodger i think. Wonder used it as an actual biscuit, ie biscuits for brekkie, and sometimes people use it like that with the tea brew icon.

However it also gets used in different way a lot on MN, especially in AIBU. If someone's post is especially outrageously selfish or unreasonable or whatever, people will post:
'Have a biscuit
Or just

I think it comes from the phrase 'that takes the biscuit!'

rescoonetwothree Sat 14-Sep-13 09:13:51

Ohhh it comes up on my phone as a brown biscuit not the normal yellow jammy dodger!! That makes sense now though haha thanks! Xx

x0gawjus0x Sat 14-Sep-13 09:25:28

Pups not limping today tho his fur is stainee from bright yellow diarrea despite two showers!

My sickness has started going too, im 15+4 today and havent been sick for about 4 days it was really bad the worst im getting atm is feeling sick and gagging with certain smells x

PiratesMam Sat 14-Sep-13 09:58:04

Morning all, I have woken up with a horrible cold! Like gawjus my puking/retching is definitely on the wane though and I'm trying to go without the cyclizine again as it makes me so tired. How is everyone else going with the sickness?
Taking the DCs to an aquarium this morning once I have summoned the energy!
When I did the NCT with my first I was about 31 weeks I think, all the others were a bit ahead of me. Didn't really make much difference; at first it seemed like all the other babies were miles ahead of my DS but then he was the first to talk despite being over a month younger than the rest <proudface>

Right. Better get going. Feel so snotty! I look like complete shit. Oh well.

OwlinaTree Sat 14-Sep-13 10:00:32

I'm 15 weeks tomorrow comms

PainAuxRaisins Sat 14-Sep-13 10:13:35

Hooray to maybe and raspberry! Glad to hear some of you have MS easing off now - gives hope to the rest of us (esp 12 weekers like me that probably have to endure a few more weeks). I'm really missing Pram's funny posts. Hope she's ok and can come back soon to make us all laugh. Good luck to Abi and anyone else going for a scan on Monday and I hope that little puppy is getting better.

rescoonetwothree Sat 14-Sep-13 10:48:44

gaw sorry to hear about pup, hope he's better soon! my nct classes start on 2nd december at 26 weeks, which seems quite early but runs til 27 jan when ill be 34 weeks - think its cause of xmas!

lumpylumps Sat 14-Sep-13 11:12:19

My mum lost her mum when she was 12. It's made her an amazing mum cos she's so aware of what she and her mum have both missed out on. I have no idea how anyone copes with loosing a parent. Dhs step mum has terminal cancer. She won't be here this time next year. It's awful.

I've been shopping this morning. I collected my mat clothes from New look. I've kept them even though they look a bit ridiculous atm. I had to keep telling myself that in a couple of months I will fill them!! I also bought a couple of nice woolly jumpers in normal sizes that have bump room. And 3 New bras!!

I still feel nauseous after I eat but it does seem to be settling. My heartburn has kicked in tho. I'm on the gaviscon!

NoMaybeAboutIt Sat 14-Sep-13 11:40:31

I'm so pleased to hear that ms is calming down. It gives me hope smile

Sorry about the pooch Gawj. Never nice when they're poorly.

How is the pup Comms. Thinking of you x

Great scan news Raspberry!

I'm so sorry to all this that have lost parents x

Also missing Pramalamadingdong
