hello! Sorry about the rubbish nights. S does quite well, it's bloody dh working till midnight most nights that stops me having a decent night. Glad about Zoe's tree Jane. I used to have ridiculously heavy periods. I remember one time going through a super plus tampon and a pad every ten minutes for a few hours shock I didn't dare sit down! That was before I had dcs but the gynae assured me that would actually help with conception. confused Sorry for the tmi. Working my way up to the spinning class later this morning!

Gorgeous photos everyone! Ds1 looks at our wedding photos and tells me I was a princess! I wasn't, but it's quite sweet to hear!

reastie Tue 24-May-11 17:14:13

ponyo I'm feeling immense pressure on this thread now hmm - maybe I can tempt you all in by buying more biscuit brew and of course lots of wine

jane I hope the nasty sounding period gets lighter soon - sounds v shock . Can't comment afraid as not had mine yet but not looking forward, especially as chances are I'll have my coil in by then which apparently make periods heavier than usual shock confused

wigglesrock Tue 24-May-11 17:18:35

jane my 2nd period after Anna came today and so far it seems much more "normal". My first one was really heavy which really isn't like me. I was also light headed but that might have been because I was necking co-codamol like they were going out of business.

ponyo I always thought the worry over cot bumpers was that the ties could become loose and baby could get caught up in them. Oh and its always wine o'clock somewhere grin

chocoroo Tue 24-May-11 17:26:39's Elle but I've name changed!

Jane my first AF was way heavier too - I resorted to the last of my maternity pads (tmi?!).

wiggles I couldn't agree wondering I my WW points will allow me a glass of wine later....

wigglesrock Tue 24-May-11 17:43:12

Am going to update stats after dinner, well after E Entertainment News lets be honest and before I catch up on Glee!! Oh the excitement of my life now grin

So if there are any lurkers out there, and you know who you are, just post if you want your details added. You know how I get if the stats aren't up to date and I've ordered the Shred so am trying to displace any nervousness by obsessing about the list instead grin

MizK Tue 24-May-11 17:54:37

Oooh shiny new thread! just read all about the Sophie love - well, disdain fromledkr - I have seen a couple of babies who have them and theyre obsessed so maybe theres something nice about her? Sadly for Cassia I am far too poor to splash out!
jane first period was a bitch for me too, hopefully things should settle down for your next one.
I have a wardrobe dilemma if anyone has time to help me> Am going to a gig later which is going to be full of student types looking thin and effortlessly cool. I am none of these things. Dont know what to wear! Am going with my sister and if I ask her what to wear she will laugh - she stole the thin,effortlessly cool genes in my family damn her. Was thinking skinny jeans and converse with some sort of loose top or a jacket to cover muffin basket? Arrrr!

chocoroo Tue 24-May-11 17:59:27

MizK I went to a gig full of effortlessly cool student types on Friday. I wore skinny jeans, vest top and blazer with ballet shoes. Blazer hid the muffin-ness until my mates and I colonised a sofa near the stage to bitch comment on the effortlessly cool student types.

wiggles Glee is a good 'un. You've reminded me I want to watch it again...

janedoe25 Tue 24-May-11 17:59:46

mizk outift sounds good. What gig you going to?

debka Tue 24-May-11 18:03:13

Bet this thread isn't as good as mine grin actually maybe it will be since reastie and I are long lost twins grin BTW can't find that photo, will keep looking.

reastie how much did you pay for your tripp trapp highchair? And was it a tripp trapp or just the same style? We want another one for S, Imy has one already which we bought in Slovenia for 40euros, all kids have them there.

Halloumi avocado and walnut salad for tea yum yum yum, am salivating already. Then rice pudding. With jam. Anyone coming over?

Yes I've heard that baby can get stuck behind cot bumpers or as wiggles said caught in ties. Plus when they're older they can climb up on them. However I remember the foot stuck in bars issue- Imy once kept crying a bit in the night then going off then crying again- eventually went in and her leg was well and truly wedged between the bars! Poor mite.

Yes, lurkers, show yourselves, we will placate led the shred with mucho wine. Where are you ledkr anyway? Was thinking about your DH last night- he's a copper, isn't he? If I come to Cheltenham and am Very Very Naughty, will he arrest me? grin

MizK Tue 24-May-11 18:03:41

Going to see Devlin, not heard too much of his stuff but like what i have heard! Cause hes a rapper it may also attract lots of twatty teenage boys boo!
chocoroo who did you see? Blazer may well b a plan thanks!

reastie Tue 24-May-11 18:18:38

deb I did notice you live in the south east hmm - me too grin - will you be any more specific about where? Maybe we are twins that live near wink . It's not a tripp trapp brand, it's I think east coast. I paid 25 squid smile Rice pudding? That's my ultimate fave pud - must remember to cook that - I love the oven one and it's not that unhealthy when you don't add much sugar and use skimmed milk hmm (not so good when you put loads on jam in though grin )

We have a cot 'book' up on our cot - it's up the top of the cot side so there's a gap at the bottom. ALice loves staring at it - it's got drawings of animals - one side black and white one side colour.

just realised the kitchen man has put in the WRONG SINK shock ! Long story - gave us 2 quotes and fitted the sink for the other quote, not the option we chose. It means our microwavw doesn't fit where it did (hence why I only just realised). Feeling really angry

mizk that skinny jeans outfit sounds good, but don't trust me - I have no idea on fashion blush

lol - just listening to DH on the baby monitor reading to alice his 'knowledge' magazine - some really dull article about weather patterns hmm

ILovePonyo Tue 24-May-11 18:51:41

Do babies just get stuck in the bars in the cot then?! grin

MizK if you're going to see Devlin it will probably be full of rude boy types grin I walk into town past the uni and its weird seeing all the annoying skinny students, it doesn't seem that long ago it was me but its 10 years now. I don't miss it, it just seems odd, my priorities then were going out, getting pissed and that was it really.
Enjoy the gig anyway, outfit plan sounds good.

deb your tea sounds so nice and healthy, we had fish and chips blush dp would never entertain the idea of having a salad for his tea, he'd need a big plateful of stodge as well. Of course that means I can't have salad for tea either, shame wink

reastie hmm about the sink, how bloody annoying for you, hope you get it sorted out quickly.

dd is asleep, what the frig, she has slept loads today, really hope she doesn't plan on not sleeping later. She needs a bath soon then a bottle! My routine is going out the window argh!!

Hope ledkr is ok and preferably sleeping.

janedoe25 Tue 24-May-11 18:56:37

mizk i've not heard of devin, i'm not than keen on rap, more of an indie/rock girl. Hope u enjoy the gig though. I've not been to one in ages sad

janedoe25 Tue 24-May-11 19:00:05

reastie the kitchen man need a swift kick in the plums! i'm laughing at your dh bedtime story to Alice, at least she will fall asleep quickly!

byronicheroine Tue 24-May-11 19:09:50

Marking place- great thread already!
Good job I've had my dinner already, homemade burgers and chips for us. I know it's fast food, but i made it all from scratch (looking for brownie points from reastie ).... talking of brownies....

Emski76 Tue 24-May-11 19:55:45

Marking my place on the thread. Off to bed soon after my beer! Haven't shredded today, no tin, bur did walk Ben to nursery this morning and walk to pick him up, so had a little exercise!

chocoroo Tue 24-May-11 20:00:16

reastie Blooming heck. And I thought our kitchen fitters were cowboys! I'd be livid. Sounds like you need some of my wine

MizK Devlin will ne awesome. I'm really a 90's indie girl like you Jane (and obviously Take That) but I've got a massive soft spot for all the British rap music that's around at the mo. I adore Tinie Tempah!

The gig I went to the other night was actually a friend, my DP used to be in a band with him. Just lining up my mum to babysit next week so both DP and I can go to see him again. have fun!

Where's ledkr. I daren't do the shred again until she pops up in case it's that thats keeping her quiet!

suzym1984 Tue 24-May-11 20:05:14

Hi Ladies!

I used to be on the ante natal thread and have been a long time lurker on post natal and feel its now time to start posting again (if you will have me?)

I had a DS called Harry on 09.02.11 6lb 13oz

suzym1984 Tue 24-May-11 20:06:12

Oh, and I think I am going to give in to peer pressure and order this shred that everyone is talking about.

(and I have a Sophie the giraffe! sorry Ledkr)

Four4me Tue 24-May-11 20:31:05

Marking my place.

Sausages, potato wedges and beans for tea!

Was given a Sophie giraffe for Imogens christening last year grin sorry ledkr
