We are all jolly well going to get preggers this month in a nonchalant non-psycho way, and hang onto it, and there will be no brooking of any argument whatsoever!

(999 Posts)

Welcome across Rat Smackers! Glad you found the place okay. This is THE MONTH when we get those deceitful pee sticks to own up to the BLINDINGLY OBVIOUS - we are all already preggers! After all; positive people get positive pee sticks!

I hope you all like what I've done with our new home <flicks imaginary speck of lint from the huge squishy sofas covered in cushions stolen from the pee stick endorsed pregnancy thread>

You'll note the updated title, courtesy of farfalla. Various healthy snacks have been set out on the coffee tables, to ensure our bumps are receiving the appropriate nutritional balance <scatters cheesecake slices, jelly snakes and grapefruits around the room>

Also, my personal favourite adjustment, you'll note the strategically positioned peephole, right here, providing us with a sneaky preview of the utopian delights awaiting us in the NO BROOKING vomitorium ante-natal thread.

So let's get to it preggos! Remember: see a rat - smack it!

Whoop whoop! <makes room for more healthy snacks and lays down freshly baked blondies>

Brilliant spy work Scream <pictures scream go-go gadget style>

thelittlefriend Wed 27-Jul-11 19:59:56

Oh, thank god, maybe is already here with the blondies.

<settles down on a cushion and thumbs a baby name book>

Love the op for this thread! <pours everyone glasses of pineapple juice and collapses on sofa>

Oooooo may I have a blondie please? They look delicious! <nom nom nom!>

Hurray for baby name books! The only thing that enables me to restrain myself (slightly) from the baby name game, is that every time I suggest a new name to DH I narrow my options further. Usually he hates the suggestion and so it has to be chucked out, but on the rare occasion that he likes one of my suggestions I instantly go off it! hmm Clearly baby brain!

maybebabyR Wed 27-Jul-11 20:06:24

Ah, Scream I think you'll find that is definitely baby brain -not one of the 'joys' of marriage--

Oooh pineapple juice thanks Have I am parched.

I love baby name discussions. We have a shortlist blush

maybebabyR Wed 27-Jul-11 20:06:54

Oh no, crossing out didn't work <hangs head in shame>

grin at 'joys of marriage' hee hee hee

havealittlefaithbaby Wed 27-Jul-11 20:13:18

DH hated Briony sad said twas too close to Brian! It's just Brian with an 'e' on the end apparently!
Just no-one in RL steals it!

GenericDietCola Wed 27-Jul-11 20:15:29

Hello! I know I should be working, but just wanted to come and have a nosy at our new place. Very nice, I like what you've done. <helps self to blondie and replenishes supply of jelly snakes>

Right! Off to do some more work now then eat tea and hopefully smack that rat I saw lurking about somewhere

Biscuitsandtea Wed 27-Jul-11 20:25:29

Evening ladies - mind if I nip in for a blondie and a nosey round the new place? Love what you've done with it. Liking the peep hole to the vomitorium too.

Although really as you're all going to be getting your bfps imminently perhaps we should install some automatic doors? (They have to be automatic doors as pregnant people really shouldn't be doing strenuous things like opening doors and stuff). Oooh, DH home with chips for tea better go and pretend I've been working hard all day xxx

havealittlefaithbaby Wed 27-Jul-11 20:25:42

Anyone else watching 50 greatest Harry Potter moments?
<waves to generic and reassures her work is overrated>

Biscuitsandtea Wed 27-Jul-11 20:32:18

No Have but is it any good?

<wanders off to check the Sky Planner for a re-run>

maybebabyR Wed 27-Jul-11 20:36:27

No, DH is making me watch Top Gear <sulks>

Good idea for the doors Biscuit Almost like one of those night clubs <tries to remember last time she went clubbing> that have the pre-club bar area that open out in to the club <wonders if it is only clubs in Essex that have this>

LoveInAColdChamberOfSecrets Wed 27-Jul-11 20:43:01

I like what you've done with the place, lovely and light and great cushions. Scream - the last two threads were started by Aubers and then me so this is definitely your month (as well, obviously, as everyone else's). Thread starters perogative. That said, I was on an earlier thread I started with Maybe and others from this thread which did not result in the required BFP so on the off chance that this doesn't work, you just need to start another!

havealittlefaithbaby Wed 27-Jul-11 20:49:55

Ooh love I hadn't realised that! Obviously important to clarify that the thread starter will always get pregnant on that thread but everyone else is pregnant too.
biscuits I'm rather enjoying it! DH is playing on his xbox in the 'play room' -his at the moment but not for much longer smile means we both get a bit peace.

GenericDietCola Wed 27-Jul-11 20:54:09

Maybe Top Gear is great - give it a chance! The other week had a hilarious quote: 'Could the rhinestone have come from a vajazzle?' - can't possibly explain it here, but anyone who watched it will understand!

Love the club analogy though - cannot wait to get my hand stamped and pass through those automatic doors!

Love and biscuits glad some PSEPP are hanging around so that we can soak up your hormones (although I know the rest of us are just awaiting confirmation and are definitely up the duff)

maybebabyR Wed 27-Jul-11 20:56:29

Ah, Generic I do in fact quite like Top Gear. The problem is, I saw this on Sunday, but I am being made to watch it again! That quote was amazing though grin

<hoping that if she brings enough homemade refreshments to the club, she too will get a BFP pronto>

<waves at the positively blooming Love>

LoveInAColdChamberOfSecrets Wed 27-Jul-11 21:02:43

I am waiting hopefully for the blooming bit, maybe! Am obviously very pleased and excited but am much more spotty, sick, bloated and alluringly gassy than blooming at present - am looking forward to the bit where people admire my glowing radiance rather than saying "you look awful, should you really be in the office?"...

LoveInAColdChamberOfSecrets Wed 27-Jul-11 21:03:48

Oh, I forgot to drop off the flapjacks and cupcakes I made for the thread to go with the jelly snakes!

GenericDietCola Wed 27-Jul-11 21:21:50

<feels strangely relieved that maybe likes Top Gear after all>

NinjaChipmunk Wed 27-Jul-11 21:25:29

hello! <waves at everyone, takes a blondie and settles onto sofa and looks over little's shoulder at the baby name book>
Sorry to hear you're feeling so poorly love hope is passes soon. Flapjacks look good though!

Right, dp is out, ds has finished his birthday card, we've wrapped the present and I've made my card. Have I forgotten anything? Oh and scream to answer your question from the last thread, I forgot to get off the bus at the early stop so nothing fell in my basket. Should I pass a poundshop I may just dive inside to buy some though. I feel I should bake something but what???

NinjaChipmunk Wed 27-Jul-11 21:26:48

oh and have yes I'm watching the harry potter thing.

scarletfingernail Wed 27-Jul-11 21:44:15

I've found you! <waves to everyone> It's good here isn't it?

Thanks but no thanks to pineapple juice. I'm on white wine tonight after having a red wine head all day today.
<offers bottle round to anyone who wishes to partake> I'm not giving up alcohol until I get my BFP. Before I found out I was expecting DS I'd had 3 major nights out with serious alcohol intake and I just know that if I'd given up before then it would have been BFN.

Also got Harry Potter thing on. Not that I'm interested, but DH is a big kid interested.

I love the club doors idea! <rushes off to get architect booked in for first thing tomorrow!>

Also loving how busy it is in here already! So many updiffed ladies in one place grin Can't wait for the first pee stick endorsement! (Fingers crossed for Maybe and Ninja tomorrow morning!)

Love your message made me super hopeful for a second! Then you mentioned the second post... hmmm... need to get another one up and running pronto! By the way, I think you look positively blooming already! (It's very flattering light in here wink)
