Just bookmarking this one then. Fab title grin

KazzaL Fri 24-Oct-08 09:41:31

I'm hoping the mayan thing works as it was right for DS (only just as long as you take conception date rather than date of LMP as my birthday was in the middle) and that would mean this one is a girl.

Loving the new title - I also suffer from wee-wee sneezy - Have to stop and cross my legs if know I am going to sneeze blush

Who was it who jinxed things and said that hopefully mumoverseas would be the last car accident. Had my first ever my fault hitting another car and causing damage yesterday afternoon - nothing remotely on the same scale as mumoverseas, just misjudged pulling into a carparking space and scraped the car next to me. Only thing I could do was leave a note, so I;m awaiting a call now. Just absolutely annoyed at myself even though I know it was because I am so tired as DS still isn't sleeping very well.

Thanks for all the book recs and ideas for helping DS to understand he's soon going to be a big brother - ordered lots of books from amazon yesterday and will try to get him a buggy and doll (if DH agrees as he has very strong views on things like this) at the weekend.

Paed wasn't overly helpful on wed I dind't think, but DH seemed ok with the appt. wouldn't do the coeliac test cos DS had had the tummy bug for 10 days only a couple of weeks ago, but agreed to do it in 2 weeks - DS now on a weetabix diet... said soya milk was a good idea and agreed we should keep him on the stomach acid tabs for his reflux for now too. We've also got to video his morning cough & wheeze to try and get him diagnosed with childhood asthma.

Going to a primary school reunion tonight which I am looking forward to, but not looking forward to the 2hr drive down to sussex first as I am so tired...... will be purchsing lots of haribo & OJ at lunchtime

mrsy Fri 24-Oct-08 10:02:18

KazzaL - can you try him with Oatibix, just in case he is coeliac?

Love this title! Can't believe we're now pretty much 3rd trimesterers! grin

MarkStretch Fri 24-Oct-08 10:05:59

Just been to dd's harvest festival assembly. It may have been my hormones but I got a little tearful.

KazzaL Fri 24-Oct-08 10:22:58

mrsy would love to be able to cut gluten out of his diet as I am convinced most of his problems are caused by this, but we can't till he's been properly diagnosed otherwise he'll get negative test results and then won't be entitled to food on prescription. So because he's eating so little at the moment as he doesn't seem to have got his appetite back since the tummy bug and he's now full of cold too, it's weetabix and toast all the way.....

I remember the first time I gave him weetabix for breakfast and a little voice popped into my head saying "you're poisoning your child" but I knew he had to have it to be able to find out.

mumoverseas Fri 24-Oct-08 10:33:55

kazza, sorry, it was me that jinxed you! I said I hoped I was the last as these things usually happen in threes! Glad you are ok though. I'm a bit sore this morning but thankfully I have DH home today as its our Sunday so with a bit of luck I'll be pampered. Insha'allah! (god willing as they say here all the time!)

MarkStretch Fri 24-Oct-08 10:41:17

May I make a suggestion?

I don't know about anyone else but I have a xmas do, a wedding to go to and christmas lunch out this year.

Can we agree that when any of us are out shopping and see any nice maternity dresses we can post a link? Share some tips? Maybe on the facebook page?

I will probably only buy one dress to get me through the season but am already starting to panic! I don't want to look like a fat christmas pudding?!

dinkystinky Fri 24-Oct-08 10:45:05

Markstretch - go black and simple and then you can jazz it up with accessories for the various different do's you're going to. Blooming Marvellous and Jojomamanbebe are good internet bets (with MN discount of course) and for more expensive you've got Isabella Oliver (with MN discount) and Seraphine for pretty dresses.

MarkStretch Fri 24-Oct-08 10:53:00

Thanks Dinky. I already have loads of black clothes so I might try something a bit different but I will check out those websites.

oooggs Fri 24-Oct-08 10:56:48


hope everyone is well - I have had an asthma attack and feel like hell, on steriods etc

Builder came to see us last night and our conversion is starting on 3 Nov with a finish date of 30 Jan hmm that date rings a bell

good to see you back TBM

love the title

26 weeks today [hurray]

dinkystinky Fri 24-Oct-08 11:17:18

Oh no Ooggs, hope you're recuperating well from your asthma attack - sounds horrible. Congrats on officially starting the third trimester too.

Hmm, sounds like you might be cutting it fine with your conversion...

mrsy Fri 24-Oct-08 11:38:22

I had such a hideous time shopping last night, MS - so I second that idea. Any ideas for an outfit suitable for a 30th birthday in a pub - prob quite casual...

mumoverseas Fri 24-Oct-08 11:59:12

at least in Saudi I don't really have that 'what do I wear' problem! Its the little/big! black number as usual! Think I will need to get a bigger abaya (black tent we have to wear in public) though as when we had our accident a few days ago I was very mindful of the fact that whilst I was trying to hold my wriggling 2 year old at the side of the motorway my poppers were popping and I was exposing my rather large belly at passers by! A hanging offence here!
hope you feel better soon ooggs. Handy hint for when builders in, hide the tea and coffee to avoid too many tea breaks!
I'd wear jeans and a nice top to the 30th mrsy.
That reminds me, I'm back to the UK in 3 weeks (hurrah!) and haven't got any winter clothes that will fit! Can feel a Bluewater shop coming on!

thehouseofmirth Fri 24-Oct-08 12:32:05

Oogs sorry you're feeling so rubbish. There should be a law against being ill when you're pregnant (or a mummy)

MS I'd second Blooming Marvellous and jjmb and also Picchu. There is also a seller on Ebay who is doing some nice Picchu dresses. They are old stock but all brand new and some of them are really cheap. I've got a gorgeous dress I had when pg with DS1 I'd love to wear again but I have nowhere to go

herbgarden Fri 24-Oct-08 13:23:51

I'd love to have a reason to shop for a nice so not in the mood for socialising. Look like rubbish - I need an afternoon nap !.....Hello to everyone else this pm and love the new thread title.

I did just about manage to join facebook and sent an invite request - haven't managed to do much more than than though (ie add any photos or profile) - so will do later. Presumably someone has to accept invitation - I think I found the right link - started by Tink?

Byee for now back to watching Finley the Fire Engine !

thehouseofmirth Fri 24-Oct-08 13:37:12

herbgarden I hope you have a child with you. When I got back from taking DS to nursery yesterday afternoon I slumped on the sofa and it was only after about 15 minutes that I realised I'd turned on the TV but failed to change the channel and was watching Cbeebies by myself...

swampster Fri 24-Oct-08 13:44:20

Herb, we're on the FB group started by mrsy - Mumsnet Mums Due Feb 2009 - Tink didn't realise there already was one and started a new one. It is hidden now and you'd need to be sent an invitation.

If you change your mumsnet email settings to accept CAT messages, I could CAT you so you could email me back and then I could add you as a friend n FB. Once you accept I can send you and invitation.

Convoluted or what?

Anyone else on this list who hasn't already joined the FB group and wants to, wave your hands in the air!

swampster Fri 24-Oct-08 13:45:39

THOM, I've found myself watching Cbeebies all by myself on my own on numerous occasions blush.

Cocodrillo Fri 24-Oct-08 13:56:54

I have bought this dress, and I think it's fab


dinkystinky Fri 24-Oct-08 14:28:09

It looks lovely Cocodrillo. Really pretty colour.

MarkStretch Fri 24-Oct-08 14:33:53

Oooh that's very pretty. Are you wearing it with heels?


thehouseofmirth Fri 24-Oct-08 14:45:05

Those of you who already have maternity coats, do you in fact look like an elephant in them? I only ask as I'm normally a small size 8, have a ridiculously tiny bump but still managed to look utterly huge in the coat I tried on in New Look at the weekend. Just wondering if it was the style (yoke at the top with pleats) or if the combination of coat I and big round belly just looks silly regardless of style?

Cocodrillo Fri 24-Oct-08 14:56:12

not wearing with heels, as would fall over, sadly.

Today am wearing it with shiny black boots, but I think it prob looks better with ballet shoe-type styles. Is too soggy for them though today.

swampster Fri 24-Oct-08 15:01:09

Nice dress, Coco. Nice hat, MS.
