Sorry Bhudda. Can you see GP and mention shorter cycles? Is LP short or are you ov early? Are you doing OPKs? There will be a solution.

The pics were lovely, Marbles. Bet you were so proud! What CD are you? Good luck!

I've been hibernating. So poorly. Bloody sore throat, cold- bleugh. Just rubbish. Hopefully clearing now.

Last day in work tomorrow...! grin

Where are the pregnant ones? How are you feeling Murray and Mummy?

Afternoon grin

Im just on my lunch and thought i would pop in smile

Lucky you Moomin! what date are you back? we dont finish until 24th July for summer! not that i have much time off though... too much summer school work to be getting on with so not much rest for me...hmm hope you feel better soon!smile

Buddha so sorry AF arrivedsad maybe your Ov date has changed if she is arriving long is your LP usually? i have been getting AF on CD 31 ish for the last couple of months and i have started to count back 2 weeks and getting cracking around then (except this month we have started as soon as AF buggered offwink) im on about CD 15 at the mo (havent checked) so we still have a good week ahead of BDingwink

hope everyone else is doing wellsmile

Not until the start of September. 9 days until Spain and 34 under Florida. Think I'm going to need another few weeks off to recover from those!

Is the sunshine keeping you all away?

BuddhaBelly Mon 15-Jul-13 22:55:42

I hate this weather, I don't care, I'm gonna moan winkgrin

PickledMoomin Tue 16-Jul-13 02:03:21

I love it!

Not so keen on the boy trying to keep me awake though (note the time).

He's hot, sick, ear hurts, needs calpol, needs water, needs to lie on me, has lost his teddy.

BuddhaBelly Tue 16-Jul-13 07:03:07

Aawww poor J hmm Hope he's feeling better this morning?

PickledMoomin Tue 16-Jul-13 07:37:44

He's still asleep. We had a baby seagull stuck on the roof at 5. The noise was crazy. Will have to wake them both shortly. L has school

BuddhaBelly Tue 16-Jul-13 13:06:22

We've got a baby seagull that's living in the carpark at work, it fell out of the nest weeks ago and can't fly yet, the noise it makes is horrendous! For small things they make so much racket! I have to say that we're all pretty impressed with the care and attention the Mum and Dad have taken protecting him though, fab parents but they sh*t on us when we leave the building!! shock

How's J now? Did L get off to school?

Where's everyone else this week? hmm

Mummylimited Tue 16-Jul-13 19:18:25

Hey all pokes head in shamefaced I've been terribly neglectful. Am now one of those annoying people who turns up and monopolies the news for a few days, then burgers off again.

How ARE you all?

marbles Can I say how gorgeous you looked I the wedding photos. You really have lost loads of weight.

buddha How are you feeling? Last time I caught up, you were feeling the effects of no pills. I really hope you're back on an even keel now.

murray I assume all going well? Any baby feels yet?

I am not even seeing mw until next week. Aaaaaaaargh. It's taking forever. Still only 7 weeks. Feeling very sick most of the day though, which is tough, but reassuring. Am eating my way through it. Shall be enormous soon.

Catch up soon xxxxxx

Hello ladies !! Apologies for absence, been busy celebrating Murray's win (hence the name !!!) he comes from round here so it was a big day ! That aside all going well, had another hb check last week and feeling some faint movement some days, not enough to fully reassure me but I will just have to be patient. 20wk scan on Monday, almost halfway !!!!!

Buddha, so sorry that AF arrived and that cycles seem short. Did you temp ? Short cycles are not a problem as long as LP is at least 10 days long. If you ov on day 14 or earlier prob not an issue. However acupuncture is supposed to be very good at lengthening LP, are you still going ? How are you mood wise ? Hope you are bearing up my lovely xx

Marbles, looking gorge you slim Jim grin ! Still at it like rabbits ?

Mummy, great to gear from you. The first few weeks do drag horribly and with the pukiness it makes it tough (not that we would ever complain - we are the lucky ones). I are my way through the first 16 weeks, only starting to get back to normalise eating patterns now !

Moomin, how are holidays going ? Not long until your trips, lucky you !!! We are off to gran canaria on 3 weeks for a last minute sneaky holiday before DS starts school.

Promise to be more present ladies xx

PickledMoomin Wed 17-Jul-13 21:08:03

I'm supposed to be packing- we are off to Spain tomorrow.

Staying in Biomar hotel in Majorca. Looks amazing!

Am such a nervous flier so am leaving everything until tomorrow to keep myself busy. wink

BuddhaBelly Thu 18-Jul-13 08:16:28

Thank goodness more people have popped in or I'll be talking to myself with Moomin in Spain! shock
Moomin Have a fantastic time away smile
Murray Thought you might be celebrating grin Not long until scan, how you feeling? Sh*ting it I expect, I have an excellent hand to hold, come and voice your worries here if you need to. I haven't been temping but when cycle is short I seem to ov earlier thankfully. My acupuncturist is off for the summer holidays she has for a locum but I'm waiting until she's back.
Mummy Yuck to m/s definitely do not envy you that especially in this heat too hmm Will you be having an early scan?
Meds all ok and back on even keel now but have felt low this week. My friend who started ttc after me has been talking about her return to work in November so felt really despondent that she got pg, had the baby and had a year off work and we're still trying hmm angryhmm
But hey ho that's life I suppose!
Marbles How you doing? Have you worn Dh out yet? wink

PickledMoomin Thu 18-Jul-13 15:10:39

Argh! Boarding time. Crap at flying. See you on t'other side my beauts

PickledMoomin Fri 19-Jul-13 16:37:34

I'll still talk to you Moomin

Flight was fine. Being with C helped. Kids were brill. Beautiful hotel. Lovely food. Rooms amazing. Kids currently doing crafts in kids club so have had nearly two hours peace.

PickledMoomin Fri 19-Jul-13 16:38:02

Buddha!!! Lol grin

BuddhaBelly Fri 19-Jul-13 20:02:58

Hurray for the World Wide Web Moomin wink
Pictures look fabulous, not jealous at all b*tch envyenvy

PickledMoomin Sat 20-Jul-13 13:43:11

It's lovely here. Kids are sun worshipers like me- good job because it's around 35 degrees.
Went to the beach this morning and my hate for sand grows.

gomurray Sun 21-Jul-13 22:22:36

Evening ladies !

Indeed piccs do look fab Moomin -lucky you smile. why am I not surprised that you do not like sand ! I am not a big fan myself actually.

Buddha, good to hear your update. If ov earlier then no need to worry about luteal phase, maybe worth temping for a month to confirm.. you may ov later than you suspect and therefore miss the boat ?... Just taking a belts and braces approach as I'm sure you know your body - maybe worth a try this month ?...

As you suspected Buddha I am crapping it about tomorrow. DS decided to body slam me on Fri - he landed full force directly on my stomach as I lay on the grass in the sun - I had excruciating pain but it passed. Decided not to panic and am pretty sure I have felt movement since. However, this has not helped my frame of mind over the weekend and my fears about something going wrong. I just pray if all ok tomorrow that I can finally relax, otherwise it will be a long 20 weeks ahead ! Have been feeling some faint and low down movement - I'm almost certain that the placenta is at the front which is why I feel very little and only very low down when I do feel anything. I just want tomorrow to be over, keep having horrible flashbacks to last time - logic is not prevailing, even when I feel movement I doubt myself and fear the worst - arrghhhh !!!! somebody slap me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will pop by tomorrow with update xx

BuddhaBelly Mon 22-Jul-13 06:47:04

Murray Everything crossed for today my lovely. What time is the scan? Will look forward to a grin update x
