Who is Nene?! Bebe!

Quodlibet Mon 10-Jun-13 22:12:59

Crossing all my things! I have been thinking about you Nene and hoping things would start moving your way.

bebejones Mon 10-Jun-13 19:30:27

AC! <waves> How the hell are ya?! How is motherhood? x

Quod Hooray for a good scan and wriggly bean! grin

Keep your fingers crossed for me, things are slowly chugging along in the right direction!

Quodlibet Fri 07-Jun-13 14:26:26

Ahh thanks AC! Yep we have a wriggler, just getting used to the idea that it is finally happening. How is motherhood treating you.

100 hope all is well for your lot, saw you'd had a poorly one sad

AmandaCooper Sun 02-Jun-13 22:41:42

Woooo Quod congratulations!!!! Just read on another thread that the scan went well. I am so so pleased for you! Xxxx

Quodlibet Thu 16-May-13 22:56:14

Bebe sorry to hear our MS is playing up, I have fingers crossed for you for the financial news.

12 wk scan is on the 31st so 2 weeks tomorrow. Still having trouble believing it is real/it will all go right. Just trying to plod through the weeks and not dwell on it at the moment - hard when I am making a show at the moment about motherhood and its all we talk about in rehearsal ALL DAY!

bebejones Thu 16-May-13 09:50:21

Hi Strawberry! Really nice to 'see' you! That 18months has gone super fast!

Quod, glad that the scan was reassuring. When will you get the next one?

I'm feeling a bit wobbly at the moment. Think my MS is playing up a bit and had a rubbish episode of Vertigo which is improving slowly. There is a glimmer of light on the horizon for us financially, not getting too excited though....been here before!

Quodlibet Sat 11-May-13 00:20:07

Ahhh nice to see you Strawberry - can't believe 18 months has gone so fast!

All good here - we had an early scan on Monday which showed a heartbeat and embryo the right size for dates, so we are feeling a bit less anxious.

How are things with you Bebe?

strawberrypie Thu 09-May-13 11:14:16

Hi guys, just popped on to say congratulations to AC on the arrival of Thomas and good luck to quod.

Well done with the labour AC, glad it went well and you got the birth you wanted.

I can't really imagine how hard it is to have twins and an 18 month old LAHG- respect!

Hope you are feeling better Bebe and things start to look up on the baby front soon.

We are all good- my LO is doing really well-18 months now and very funny smile

bebejones Wed 08-May-13 18:00:08

Just checking in to wave at everyone!!

Quod, how are you doing?

AC, where are you? How is motherhood? Hope you are ok xx

LAHG <waves> smile

No news here, just wanted to say hi!!

bebejones Sat 20-Apr-13 18:31:11

So I've bought myself another year without the drugs as far as the doctors are concerned! I know it's ultimately MY decision, they always say 'no pressure' but then the way they say things is loaded with pressure and designed to guilt trip you into taking the drugs! [cynical] The day I had built myself up to 'the talk' ended up being the day DH came home from work in a complete state and frantic about money! <sigh> so I chickened out! sad

He never thinks past next week let alone thinking about the next 5 years! Tis really grinding me down! sad

Quodlibet Fri 19-Apr-13 19:52:53

What did you decide about TTC and meds Bebe?

bebejones Mon 15-Apr-13 08:14:09

It wasn't so much the separate school runs (although that would be tricky as potentially DDs secondary school could be half hours drive away) more having two children starting at new schools at the same time! (DH doesn't drive hmm) There is also the ever increasing age gap to consider, at the moment DD is very keen on the idea of a sibling, the longer she has to establish herself as an only the harder I anticipate the adjustment (considering her personality!!) I tend to think about practicalities and impact on us as a FAMILY, DH only ever looks at it from how it will affect HIM! DD is already starting to do activities that could potentially be tricky to cope with with another child to think about too. As you can tell my head is spinning, desperately want another baby but I think if it doesn't happen by next year we will have missed the boat.

Quodlibet Mon 15-Apr-13 07:58:51

But whenever you have one there'll be times where it would be difficult, no? There'll be ways round the separate school runs. Will DH be predicting 5 yrs down the line do you think?

bebejones Sun 14-Apr-13 22:56:52

Sorry for rambling!

bebejones Sun 14-Apr-13 22:56:34

No idea! Some days I think he's quite keen & some days it feels like he will never want another baby! Financially things are no better and that's his biggest reason against it! I've been crunching numbers in my head and worked out that if we have a baby after DD starts year 2 (after her 6 birthday NEXT year) then it'll put a lot of pressure on as DC2 will be starting school when DD is in year 6 which is important for her. But if we have a child when she starts year 3 by the time DC2 starts school DD will be going to a different school which would be a nightmare! It all seems such a long way off but there are very real practical implications to the timing of it all! confused

Quodlibet Sun 14-Apr-13 21:26:39

Thanks Bebe! Yes we are in, a day late thanks to a shyster removals company who cancelled on us leaving us stranded amongst piles of boxes! Luckily we were rescued by a collection of our lovely friends, and now happily in our new home, which is (after me being terrified about not liking it for the last two months) shaping up to be a lovely place.

Where is Dh's head about TTC these days? Do you think he has softened about it at all?

bebejones Sun 14-Apr-13 18:40:18

Quiet squeal!!! grin <whispers> Yay! Sending sticky vibes to you Quod! Good luck with the house move! Hopefully you will be all unpacked soon and won't have full boxes still stashed away several years later like we do! blush

My mum just text me to say that one of my friends from back home (her parents are friends with my mum) is 12 weeks PG. (They aren't telling people yet) I feel a bit weird about it really. Mostly because knowing someone in RL is PG only reminds me that I'm not! But also because she was my maid of honour and the very first person I told that I was PG, even before I told my mum! I need to have 'the conversation' with DH again, before Weds! I have a hospital appt and they are going to ask me what I want to do about medication.......I just don't know! sad

Quodlibet Sat 13-Apr-13 19:29:19

Hello all - wow it is quiet in here these days! Just quietly popping in to quietly whisper that I have had another BFP - am about 5 weeks. Too difficult to take it in really (we are also moving house this weekend which is insanely stressful) but we'll see, hopefully this one will stick...

LookAtHerGo Thu 28-Mar-13 21:21:26

Sorry. The illnesses hit hard here, but I think we're over it now, touch wood. Throat and ear infections for E and me then bronchiolitis with both boys hmm was a shite 4 weeks really.

Boys both smiling now gringrin

Hope everyone is ok. Just saying a quick hello whilst I pump before bed.

bebejones Thu 28-Mar-13 10:18:51

Where is everyone? How are you all getting on?

Hope everyone is ready for a nice long weekend! smile

bebejones Thu 21-Mar-13 18:13:26

I'm usually pretty good at killing threads! grin

Have antibiotics for a chest (and possible ear) infection. sad Feel crap! Also seem to have permanent sinus headache. Feeling very miserable and deaf in my left ear currently! Hoping the drugs kick in soon!
