Hi lovelies!

A thread for the graduates of those who were waiting to TTC and are now actively trying, or very soon to be actively trying! Apologies if I've forgotten anyone or tagged the wrong people, please do join in or join later as necessary! Hoping we can continue to support and keep each other sane in this TTC madness!

@dottydally that's okay don't worry! I'm okay Thankyou - plodding along in these weird times. I have a ten month old already πŸ˜“ and I'm TTC number 2! How are you? X

dottydally Fri 22-Jan-21 19:15:13

@cupcakesandglitter also thinking of no.2! Watch this space grin

cupcakesandglitter Fri 22-Jan-21 19:25:43

Ahh no way!! @dottydally this is my first "official" month of trying, but AF hasn't started back yet for me so it could be a while πŸ˜‚

dottydally Fri 22-Jan-21 20:19:27

@cupcakesandglitter it doesn't need to be back! Good luck though. How are you feeling?

cupcakesandglitter Fri 22-Jan-21 20:44:51

@dottydally hoping that's the case and I manage to catch ov beforehand πŸ˜‚ honestly I'm super excited, I really miss being pregnant and the newborn stage... my LO hasn't ever met another baby but she loves them so much from seeing them in supermarkets/TV/FaceTime and I can't wait to see her with a sibling!! I think I'm ready so just a case of getting that BFP I guess! How're you feeling? How old is your LO now? X

@cupcakesandglitter finally time to share some news.. baby number 2 is due in July! star


cupcakesandglitter Sat 13-Feb-21 11:17:55

Omg @dottydally massive massive congrats!!! Ahhhh so happy for you!!! How far gone are you? How're you feeling? Xx

dottydally Mon 15-Feb-21 08:19:09

@cupcakesandglitter thank you! Almost 20 weeks now (just had my anomaly scan). Feeling quite good actually but the first trimester with a toddler is no joke. I had it easy again but even just tiredness and nausea wasn't fun. I was still breastfeeding until about a month ago as well so I think it was all just sapping the life out of me!

How are you?

cupcakesandglitter Mon 15-Feb-21 08:39:53

Oh bless you @dottydally I can't imagine how it'll be with a toddler! So super happy for you though, that's fab, halfway through already!! Will you be finding out the sex? I'm good thankyou, little one is 11 months this week and we're on cycle 2 now of TTC, had my first AF a week or so ago so ready to kind of get back to it I guess! Although the lack of sleep isn't helping us DTD πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ x

dottydally Mon 22-Feb-21 14:14:54

@cupcakesandglitter it's definitely interesting with a toddler in tow! We didn't find out (and didn't last time either) so it'll be a surprise in 19 ish weeks. Everything crossed for you x

Just popping back to see how everyone is @cupcakesandglitter @mussie @NeverHadANickname @rollerskaterdata

Baby dotty #2 due in less than 8 weeks here. It doesn't feel like 5 minutes since we were thinking about #1 shock

NeverHadANickname Sun 16-May-21 16:40:08

Hi @dottydally ! Good to hear from you. That is so exciting for you! How are you?

Everything good here, baby is now 19 months old 😩 growing too fast. I also opened the equivalent of a child minders at home here so I can spend more time with him but still have some money coming in so been very busy.

I got a notification I'd been mentioned!! What progress for the Mumsnet app πŸ˜‚

My little girl just turned 1 last week! We're starting to think about TTC baby number 2, but due to move house in the next couple of months, so will probably wait until after that. She still feeds once or twice a night though, more when sick or teething, so I'm hoping that will taper down drastically before I'm pregnant again because that would be a lot to deal with πŸ˜…

Lovely to hear baby due so soon dotty! Are you ready for the newborn stage again? We had some friends round with a 3 month old yesterday and it's crazy how quickly you forget how intense it is πŸ˜…

NeverHadANickname Sun 16-May-21 16:46:22

Hi @mussie
This thread has never shown on threads I'm on for some strange reason so I always loose track of it. Good luck with the move!

cupcakesandglitter Sun 16-May-21 16:50:37

Ahh @dottydally that's flown by!! How exciting is that!! Are you feeling prepared? Any inkling as to what you're having? Please keep us posted!!

@NeverHadANickname oh that's lovely, I bet it's so nice spending so much time with him! Can't believe 19 months already?!

Same for you @mussie how do you have a one year old?! It's flown by!! I bet the house move is exciting?! Are you bfing? How're you feeling about it? We've very slowly cut down to just one feed in the morning and I think we're coming to the end of our journey πŸ˜“πŸ₯Ί

I'm okay here thanks - Baby Cupcakes is almost 14 months which seems insane. I can't believe I have a toddler?! Unfortunately I've had two mc's so far trying for number 2, so taking a couple of months off I think. Hopefully I can join you on the two baby brigade soon Dotty!

@cupcakesandglitter @NeverHadANickname @cupcakesandglitter @mussie

Coming back to share the news that baby dotty #2 arrived just over a week ago now, a lovely little girl. She was in a hurry just like her big brother - I laboured for less than 90 minutes and only just made it into the birth centre. Scores on the doors.. 10lb 8oz. We were planning at stopping at 2 anyway but we are certainly not having any more now grin

NeverHadANickname Fri 23-Jul-21 18:29:56

Massive congratulations @dottydally that is great news! And wow very speedy, I thought mine was fast! Hope you are both well ❀

cupcakesandglitter Fri 23-Jul-21 19:02:13

Congrats @dottydally that's fantastic, super happy for you ❀️ and well done, that's an impressive size! πŸ˜‚ hope you're both well! X

@NeverHadANickname how're you doing? X

No good news to report from me yet unfortunately, MC number three has just happened for me this year. Really hope I can join you all with the second babies but not feeling hopeful!

NeverHadANickname Fri 23-Jul-21 19:07:14

I'm sorry to hear that @cupcakesandglitter πŸ˜” that must be hard.

Everything is good here. DS is 22 moths old now and I still have zero desire for another despite having previously wanted 3! People say it'll change but neither of us are young. I really didn't want an only child.

cupcakesandglitter Fri 23-Jul-21 19:16:27

Thanks @NeverHadANickname I'll be okay eventually I guess. Interesting about not wanting another, it's crazy how it can change after birth isn't it! Do you think you'll ever possibly want another? No judgement either way, one is definitely a handful, but they're equally the best things in the world too aren't they!

NeverHadANickname Fri 23-Jul-21 20:19:37

He is my whole world and I just couldn't imagine there being another one πŸ™ˆ I know people go through that but I thought it might have changed by now. DH is older than me too so not sure how long we would want to wait.

Just as an aside for everyone. I have a WhatsApp group I am part of with others from here, if anyone wants any support or chat you are welcome to join. I know we slowed down on here a while ago now.

cupcakesandglitter Fri 23-Jul-21 20:33:27

@NeverHadANickname totally get that, either way it's whatever works best for you!! I'd love to join the WhatsApp group, is it people from our original waiting to TTC group?! If so, sign me up please!

NeverHadANickname Fri 23-Jul-21 20:40:25

No it is just a random group of us that were looking to chat. It is a good group, lots of fun. It was very fast moving to start with but it has slowed down though. I'll happily make one for us though, if anyone is interested PM me with phone numbers and I'll add.

cupcakesandglitter Fri 23-Jul-21 21:09:50

@NeverHadANickname that sounds great, I'd happily have one for this thread. I'll PM you my number 😊

cupcakesandglitter Fri 23-Jul-21 23:13:50
