sad Could it be too early?

Buddha could def be too early - the fact that you have no AF is the only thing that matters... step away from those sticks until the weekend xx

Af has arrived sad Really thinking I need to consider stopping for my own sanity. There seem to be more reasons to stop than to continue, but it breaks my heart to consider it sad

Aww Buddha I am so, so sorry to hear that AF arrived. It is so difficult at moments like these to want to continue sad. I was talking to one of DS's friend's mums the other day and she told me that they had tried for 13 years to conceieve their son ! She was 40 when she eventually fell PG and her husband didn't believe the tests as they had pretty much given up hope. She said that for the final 2 years they did nothing special other than not use contraception - previously they had done superfoods, supplements temping etc... she reckons the only difference was that they had pretty much forgotten about it (easier said than done - I KNOW !) and just got lucky. Sending you big virtual hugs xx

Afternoon ladiessmile

Buddha. So sorry AF arrived again for you sad it is shit. i have been there with the giving up thoughts and unfortunately...i cant stop. despite DH and I "agreeing" to stop at the 6 year point (october this year) i would feel in myself like it was "my fault" for stopping and thats why we only have 1 DC...not the pain and heartache of 6 years fruitless TTC and MCs aplenty hmm i feel like i sort of owe it to myself, DH, DD and our hypothetical other DC (s) to keep on keeping on IYSWIM but yes it is shit all the same... FX this cycle is YOUR cycle... im here if you need a rant {{{{hugs}}}}

How is everyone else? smile

Sorry if I've scared everyone away with my moaning.
Marbles I don't know how you keep on as positive as you are, you're an inspiration smile
I promise to shut up now, if you'll all come back? wink

Evening ladies ! How are we all ?

I had a fabulous holiday in Gran Canaria. E started school yesterday so it has been a busy few days. He is loving it which is good - a bit wobbly (me more than him !) today when he had to line up and go in on his own today but he seems to be fine with it. Also had to visit after school club which he starts on Mon sad, I feel like t is a lot for him all at once, however I have no family close by and I work so no option sad. Other than that, I am getting BIG ! Bump appeared just before holiday and is now officially massive !!! I measured 24-25 weeks at 22 weeks and bump has exploded in size since then ! Had a scan on Tuesday and all is well, despite my size baby is right size for my dates. Baby is very active so loads of kicks and movement which really helps me remain calm smile

Moomin your holiday looks fab - hope you are all having a ball (although must be tricky with your ex).

Buddha, how are things with you ? Sounds as if you are feeling good ?...

Marbles - you any better mrs ? xx

Mummy - how are you doing - are you past 12 week stage yet ?

PickledMoomin Thu 22-Aug-13 22:27:58

Yey for E's school start being so smooth and for big bump Murray. Pics please!

BuddhaBelly Thu 29-Aug-13 08:01:27

Murray Can't believe E has started school! He looked adorable in his uniform, made me dread next year hmm
Moomin Come tell us about your holiday, did D survive the flight? Unpacked the plastic? Washed and ironed? I hate all the post hols crap shockconfused

PickledMoomin Thu 29-Aug-13 20:03:53

All done Bhudda!

Felt hideous yesterday but back to normal today.

D still alive. It was okay most of the time. All that time separated that we lived together probably helped. Feel relieved to have my space now grin

NoMoreMarbles Fri 30-Aug-13 11:07:34
