Nice new thread TS very much liking the name!!!!

Should have posted my naked garden story here - start as I mean to go on!

TwilightSurfer Wed 30-Jul-08 16:44:48

Welcome! Here's a cocktail. Please have a seat anywhere. The musical selection today is Bach. Would anyone care for a massage?

TwilightSurfer Wed 30-Jul-08 16:47:47

Oops your naked garden story would be lovely

MrsMagooo Wed 30-Jul-08 16:48:10

Oops PMSL re the naked garden story - I am belly laughing as I type grin

TS Loving the new thread name hun wink

TwilightSurfer Wed 30-Jul-08 16:48:32


PetitFilou1 Wed 30-Jul-08 16:51:03

Posted again as just missed TS's new thread alert!

oops ROFL at you naked in the garden- but not sure why neighbour ran off, what did he think you were going to do, jump on him!

TS Your mil needs to wind her neck in - 'early signs of a c section' indeed. Sounds like my mil, 'I know you haven't asked for advice, but...'

CC Sounds like ward sister was pissed off with being at work to me - I'd have ranted too.

ataraxis lol at radical birthing - we've had a lovely day today. Went to Oxford via park and ride (exciting bus journey for dcs), on the canal for 40 minutes round trip and to the pub for lunch. I'm very tired but have not shouted at dcs all day (hooray!) Helps that the humidity has gone and it is just a really beautiful sunny day here today.

VG Good news re you not having to be induced. Can't remember what you said about what happens next though - have to go and make dcs dinner but will re read again later!

Hope all is well with the rest of you.

alittlebitshy Wed 30-Jul-08 16:51:54

Love the thread name.

having a quick MN moment while Henry sleeps (sozzled baby with milk running down his face grin)

MrsMagooo Wed 30-Jul-08 16:53:56

Albs Bess, such a cute image grin


<<stamps feet & sulks in corner>>

alittlebitshy Wed 30-Jul-08 16:54:55

It IS a nice image -esp as earlier i thought i'd buggered my bobs up again - but less sore this time, so I think we're still ok and i fele a bit more positive.

VintageGardenia Wed 30-Jul-08 17:01:52

albs that's a lovely picture!

CC that was a marvellous rant and it's outrageous that they should a. say those things and b. allow the patient to hear. A few weeks ago I'd have been wailing at it, now I feel angry - and I don't often use ataraxis's DS's second favourite smiley!

TS Good God almighty - my script for your scene with MIL:

"Could be an early sign you need a C section?" - Yes, how medically perceptive you are, most of the books and doctors suggest that feeling emotional and having contractions usually lead to a C section hmm.

"I just had contractions and went in and had my babies" - Oh did you? OK maybe that's what I'll do, then. You wouldn't just look after dinner, would you, and I'll be back with the baby shortly.

"obsessive... controlling..." - Erm fuck off.


Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I suppose a little conflict is bound to occur wherever MIL and DIL and family are gathered in one place ... just like a murder always occurs in Agatha Christie when the beautifully dressed cast gather at a seaside hotel. Dark & hollow laugh.

Gin & tonic please!

VintageGardenia Wed 30-Jul-08 17:03:11

Rrrrrrrrrrrrrofl at oops streaking down the garden. WTF was the guy's wife doing on the phone?

"Quick, ring Bill, his missus is giving me a show, he needs to know NOW. I'd do it only ... I'm glued to the spot..."

alittlebitshy Wed 30-Jul-08 17:06:06

bobs??? boobs obviously grin

VintageGardenia Wed 30-Jul-08 17:08:28

sorry, rather doltishly replied on old thread to you, pf

VintageGardenia Wed 30-Jul-08 17:09:13

albs feeding is settling in well obviously. Are you having soreness/discomfort?

MrsMagooo Wed 30-Jul-08 17:11:38

VG PMSL - that's my kind of come back wink

I have to say I am very lucky on the MIL stakes - she's a bloody lovely woman & I love her to bits......have told DH if were to ever split I get his mum in the divorce settlement wink

My mother on the other hand........

ataraxis Wed 30-Jul-08 17:18:49

sazzles - are you there?
Having lots of contraction type pains today but am only 35+6. I am sure it is nothing (BH or something, never had those with the others), and am telling LO to sit tight for 1 more week but just in case... how long did you have to stay in hospital for with your DD? When I spoke to MW last week (just before I had to go into London and just after she told me head was engaged), she said "well, if you gave birth in London it wouldn't be the worst thing... (hmm DH would definitely disagree)... and at this stage you would only be in for a couple of days". Just wondered what your experience was?

TwilightSurfer Wed 30-Jul-08 17:20:36

ALBS you sound like your in a lovely dream world now.

VG I love your remarks. May I channel you during my next conflict. And yes, things do feel a bit Agatha Christy at the moment. DONDON DON DOONNNNNNN {{{{SHRIEK}}}}

TwilightSurfer Wed 30-Jul-08 17:21:17

Going outside to rest and contract for a while. I'll check in again later......

MrsMagooo Wed 30-Jul-08 17:23:32

Ataraxis Sorry butting in here - this little one tried to evict himself at 33+0, I was given steroids & drugs to stop labour (which thankfully worked) but was told that as a general rule babies are allowed home when they 5lbs+ in weight & have reached a minimum of 35 weeks.

They also said to me if I got to 36 weeks the chances are he wouldn't need SCBU at all, perhaps just a little help with feeding.

Obviously each baby is different but that's what I was told by a SCBU nurse grin

MrsMagooo Wed 30-Jul-08 17:24:40

TS try & have a nice rest (easier said then done) perhaps see if you can find some tape to pop over MIL's trap!!

ataraxis Wed 30-Jul-08 17:53:43

Thanks MrsMagooo - that makes me feel much better as she was estimated at over 5lb on the scan at 34 weeks(will probably go to 42 now...).

angry to MIL, nurses, MW and anyone else who is unnecessarily upsetting everyone.

MrsMagooo Wed 30-Jul-08 17:57:10

No worries Ataraxis it put my mind at rest to know the different possabilities grin typically Little Man now seems to be very comfy & am starting to think I am going to overdue as I'm now 39+4 - little monkey lol!

SazzlesA Wed 30-Jul-08 17:57:51

Message withdrawn

Buckets Wed 30-Jul-08 17:59:45

MrsMagoo, that's exactly how I used to do formula and it was a doddle but in the last year 'they' have issued these incredibly restrictive guidelines about what is safe use of formulasad. Nothing to stop you doing it, just be discreet when there's a HV around to avoid a lecturegrin.

TS Am I right in thinking sterilising bottles isn't that big a deal in the US?

Mini-rant: DS's paediatrician phoned to say the hospital rejected his poo sample for being more than an hour old (funny that.) She then went on to basically repeat that she thinks his chronic diarrhoea is just toddler diarrhoea and try giving him less juice and more fat (oh, like the whole milk, real butter and very diluted drinks he already has?) Basically she's not going to refer him to a dietician/nutritionist for allergy testingangry. My mum has offered to pay for him to see a private one but it's so hard to tell who's actually medically qualified and who's got a correspondence course certificate. We've got a year before he starts school and I just want him to at least be able to feel the poo coming out before he goes to school in a nappy!
So, at some point after the baby comes, I'm going to have to try him dairy-free to see if that does anything (other than piss him off.)
