How exciting ;) when are you due? Do you know what you're having?

We're pretty much sure we want to stop at 2

It's suddenly got easy though hasn't it?!!

RacquelWelsh Fri 30-Nov-12 16:49:23

Hi everyone, congratulations to the expectant mums... I am also pregnant again. Quite a surprise for us as we were still discussing whether or not to have another as I am 41 so well over the bloody hill. Having George somehow cured the pituitary tumour I've had for nearly 10 years and I got signed off by my consultant in the summer. Am only 8 weeks so not said anything to anyone yet, keeping it under wraps in real life... due on DHs birthday smile 8th July. 12 week scan on Christmas Eve so hope all is well.

Those with 2 kids already, tell me it's ALL GOING TO BE OK will you? Am really pleased but just now and then I think how the hell do people cope with 2 kids. I'm just being a wuss as of course people do, but there hardly seems to be any time at all now with just one child!

George is great fun, 2.5 on Monday and his hypothyroidism seems to be under control. He'll be on medication for the rest of his life but he's fine taking the medicine each day.

Be great to hear how everyone else is doing, shame the thread's so quiet these days.. guess we're all TOO BUSY!

Quick drop in to say hello.. and huge congrats to those expecting again! racquel you will of course be fine! It feels like you have no free time with just 1, but once you have 2 you'll wonder what the heck you used to fill your time with grin it is fab having 2, just so lovely to see them playing together. When ds1 makes ds2 laugh it is just my favourite thing ever!

Hope everyone else is ok..we have come out the other side of potty training & went v well, I was pleasantly surprised! Ds1 dry day & night now. Happy Christmas to all!

Wow it's been so long! And do many pregnancies I am delighted and jealous all at once. Solomon is 9 months now, and I can't say it's been easy with building work and an undiagnosed tongue tie which basically screwed up the feeding (and he was slowly starving)but since we got it fixed we have just been looking forwArds. He is lovely, a real darling and the adoration between him and Virginia is fantastic. We are trying for number 6. Im not optimistic it will happen soon with still bf both Solomon and Virginia.
Very much looking forward to Christmas. Must check in here more often and hopefully wish more of you wonderful new babies.

RacquelWelsh Fri 28-Dec-12 10:14:27

Hi again everyone. Good to hear from others too :-) Sadly, this pregnancy was not to be and I miscarried at 10 weeks sad which was really horrible. We had the in laws staying at the time but surprisingly, they were very lovely. We'll try again in the New Year.

We had a fairly subdued Christmas but George had a great time. The day after I miscarried, he declared 'no more nappies' and apart from one or 2 accidents, has toilet trained himself. Hooray!

Happy New Year to everyone, all the best to everyone.

stuffthenonsense Fri 28-Dec-12 10:16:46

Oh racquel how awful! I am so sorry. Big hugs.

RacquelWelsh Fri 28-Dec-12 15:39:49

Thanks stuff. Glad to hear Solomon and Virginia get along so well and his tongue tie is sorted. Wishing you a very happy new year. smile

Carikube Sun 30-Dec-12 13:56:41

Hello...Thought this thread had died but had a quick look yesterday and saw that there had been some activity so thought I would come to wish you all a happy new year.
Congratulations to all those with new dcs/imminent arrivals. Sorry to hear your news Raquel. I had a miscarriage over the summer and it wasn't a pleasant experience. I don't know if we will try again as I'll be 40 soon and things seem to be going so well with the two girls that in some ways it feels like we're pushing our luck a bit too far.
Otherwise all is well, and I hope everyone has a fantastic 2013. x

Hello ladies, rachelfruitloop here with a name change! I haven't been on the thread for ages, but thought I'd pop on to see if anyone has posted recently. Happy new year to everyone!

Many congratulations to all expecting babies, and huge hugs to those who've had miscarriages.

Eric is coming up to the age that DS1 was when he was born. Since September, I've been thinking back to my pregnancy three years ago. I feel very odd as Eric approaches 3, I can't really explain why. It makes me feel sad in a way. I guess because he won't have a little brother when he's 3 like DS1 did. But it's an absurd feeling, I really don't want any more babies. DH had the snip in November, and I'm counting down the days when he gets the all clear and I can have this blasted Mirena coil removed. :-)

Eric is still train mad, and very loud, boisterous, stubborn and articulate. If I thought DS1 looked like DH, Eric is the spitting image of him. He's going to playgroup 2 mornings a week, so it's nice to have some time to myself. I'm having driving lessons, and despite driving in L.A. for over 18 years, I managed to fail my test in November, it is just absolutely so different driving over here. I'm taking the test again in March. Eric is not toilet trained, though he showed signs he might be ready this past summer. Nope. He's so stubborn, any suggestion that he might want to try to go to the toilet is met with much defiance. I am not sweating it ( as with many things this time around) and we'll try again in a couple of months.

I hope that everyone is doing well. I remember how wonderful it was having your support on our thread 3 years ago. I really can't believe our babies are almost 3 already!

pamelat Wed 20-Mar-13 22:12:16

Hope everyone is well smile

Just watched OBEM and it made me think of you.

I can't believe our babies will be 3 this summer and that many are big brothers and sisters

Alex is still very much my "baby" ;)

We're having the very terrible twos but am thinking that we must be nearing the end. He likes to dictate which parent does what and when, and obviously exactly how he likes it. Woe betide anyone who does it "wrong"
