Hope this works

BeckyBendyLegs Thu 25-Jun-09 10:51:29

It works!

Koumak Thu 25-Jun-09 10:52:34

i cant believe we are on thread number 4!

Trikken Thu 25-Jun-09 11:02:01

me neither, I thought "surely we cant have tht many pages already?!!" but looking at the other one it was 39 pages long.

Laugs Thu 25-Jun-09 11:04:08

Hi, just marking it so I can find you later.

I was going to say "Maybe we just all talk too much", then worked out how many of the other posts were probably me ranting about stuff, so zipped my mouth back up!! grin

To carry on what was being said previously - thankyou Pavlov for your kind words And I'm jealous of the bike hehe!!

I'd quite like the scan to be just me and DP, but I think if I told my mum she couldn't be there she'd kill me, and after seeing the look on my brothers face when he heard the heartbeat, and the way he whispered, "Is that Nelson?", I promised he could come to the scan. He's being very sweet about it at times.

skorpion Thu 25-Jun-09 11:31:44

We sure are a chatty lot.

Hope the scans went well yesterday.

skorpion Thu 25-Jun-09 11:33:28

Erika It's nice to hear that your brother is coming around - you said he wasn't in the best of moods with you. When is your scan?

turtle23 Thu 25-Jun-09 11:45:27

No time to post...just need to be able to find you!

ErikaMaye Thu 25-Jun-09 11:46:42

He ranges wink Then again, I guess part of that is his age. Its very much a love-hate relationship... But saying that, who's isn't with their siblings??

Its is a week and a half, am getting so impatient now!!! grin

skorpion Thu 25-Jun-09 11:52:52

I know what you mean about siblings, I could have quite easily throttled my younger sister when we were kids. But now, I miss her the most from all my family and we're incredibly close. You'll get to that point, too, I'm sure.

Mine is just over two weeks away - can't wait!!

I'm sure your DP will go all gooey at the scan, too. My DH has definitely changed his tune since the 12 week scan - he sometimes seems more into the whole thing than me!

Gave me a bit of a shoch when he kissed my tummy goodnight the other day. I thought stuff like that only happens in cheesy films

skorpion Thu 25-Jun-09 11:54:08

he he shocked me so much that I can't even spell it

sleeplessinthecity Thu 25-Jun-09 12:50:23

I love Taytos!!! My DH is from NI and we go every Christmas.. We were in Dublin for a stint and used to head up north every weekend. It's bliss there and am very blessed with my in laws. They are awesome.

skorpion That is very sweet of your DH...they can be cheesy at times!

Pavlov and Koumak good luck on your scans..how exciting..!!!!

After taking DD to one scan never again..She just freaked out and didn't let DH see anything..Schedule all my scans when she is next door with the neighbour's kid and a childminder for the morning. can't wait till Tuesday.

sleeplessinthecity Thu 25-Jun-09 12:50:57

PS..Skorpion well done for starting a new thread!!

skorpion Thu 25-Jun-09 12:54:23

sleepless Yes, I hope his enthusiasm will carry on to changing nappies. He was adamant the he would not do any 'stinky' jobs.

ErikaMaye Thu 25-Jun-09 13:07:10

Skorpion - my DP has started doing that quite a lot. Always kisses my tummy and talks to it. When I'm laying in bed, he rolls my top up and places his ear against it so he can hear the baby moving around. Whenever he texts me goodnight or good morning, he'll always put "you two" on it, and I smile so much my cheeks hurt!!! I'm so happy he's come round to it. I think the heartbeat freaked him out a little yesterday, but he didn't stop playing the recording he made of it on his phone, so I think it was good kind of freaked grin Its so good to see him happy about it... The way he first reacted, I thought he'd never come round!!!

helips Thu 25-Jun-09 13:38:56

Hi everyone, can't believe we are on a new thread already!

Good luck to everyone having scans today grin

skorpion Thu 25-Jun-09 13:47:48

Erika - Onwards and upwards, I hope darker moments disappear altogether and your cheeks never stop hurting from smiling

Tamlin Thu 25-Jun-09 14:50:08

Huge moan ahead: I've rung the Salisbury maternity unit at least three times a day every day for the last four days, trying to book a tour for this Saturday. I keep getting the answer phone saying 'You cannot leave a message.' I've sent an email. No reply.

I'm also trying to ring Swindon physiotherapy to make my extremely belated appointment (my referral only just came through, eight weeks after I first requested it). Apparently I can only call between 1 and 4, and they are permanently engaged.

I would ring the midwife to complain, but I can only call HER between 9 and 9.30 am.

BeckyBendyLegs Thu 25-Jun-09 15:37:03

Oh Tamlin that's awful! How frustrating.

I'm sitting here watching Wimnbledon. DH has just emailed to say they are going out for a drink after work to say goodbye to their old office (they are moving offices at the moment). I may as well be a single parent at the moment. I feel like he's just the lodger who comes home to sleep. Grrrrrr men!

southernbelle77 Thu 25-Jun-09 16:18:19

Can't believe how much you all talk

I too am sat here watching wimbledon BBL. Sorry you're dh is not in very much, it's hard work when you have to do everything on your own isn't it.

My scan is two weeks today and it feels like forever! DD has been deciding on names for baby, bless her! We will see (and maybe suggest a few others for her to think about!!).

Sorry not had a chance to catch up, it's really hard trying to remember what is happening with whom, but I'm not being rude by not replying to everyone, sorry.

katster37 Thu 25-Jun-09 17:30:37

Hey all - lovely new thread! We are so chatty!
BBL sorry you are not seeing much of your DH. Must be esp hard as you work from home so I am guessing you don't get that much adult contact in the day?

I am trying to finish my reports.... They are due in tomorrow, can't wait to get rid of them!

Sooooo hot today. I am sweltering.

Am excited as the last couple of days we have seen tummy protrusions when the baby kicks - it's so exciting, I love it! Although it is freaky.

Am soooo jealous of people who have had their anomaly scans. I am ridiculously scared of mine and it's not until the 15TH!!!!! Nearly 3 weeks away!! Surely if my baby is moving around loads this is a good sign, though??

Might put Wimbledon on now...

tigger32 Thu 25-Jun-09 17:38:28

Hi everyone, sorry not caught up on the old thread, it was too long for my pc to load hmm

So the scans have started then anyone got anything to report yet?
Mine is on Tuesday too, I think there are a few of us grin

Dh and I are going this weekend and leaving the boys with my mum, I'm really looking forward to it, I need a break!

erika I'm really pleased to read that your brother is starting to be a bit kinder to you smile

Right off to serve up dinner.

tigger32 Thu 25-Jun-09 17:39:38

thats Dh and I are going away this weekend blush

PavlovtheForgetfulCat Thu 25-Jun-09 18:24:08

The scan was great, DD came along and she was great, and when she stopped being great, DH stuffed her with a donut! We also managed to get 4 scan pictures for free by offering the sonographer a donut with her coffee at break!

All is well, and we did find out what we are having - due the well endowed tackle in between the legs, we are most certainly having a BOY!!!! I won, I said ALL along it was a boy. and DD said 'a boy baby? not a girl baby? a boy baby? oh' grin and now she is telling everyone she is having a brother so we can't keep it a secret even if we wanted to.
