Anyone fancy a race to the end of the thread?

Chocolate mouse. Twat. I'd kill him. grin

So glad DP is doing this with me. I'd never ever manage otherwise.

I've just had grilled mushrooms and cherry tomatoes with fresh basil on top. Fucking lovely! I know it's late. But it was that or more jaffa cakes. Fecking starving!

Dixiebell Wed 15-May-13 22:55:56

Slimming World fish and chips = yum. DH was even happy, he was wary about me feeding him 'healthy' food. He did follow it up with chocolate mousse and Oreos though while I virtuously had my fruit and watery no-fat yoghurt.

Thanks for the welcome back.

Trying to catch up but it's not happening. Page 8 out of 40!

Kyzordz Wed 15-May-13 22:52:59

Ohh I thought this fred was finished! So much to reply to and things to tell you but taking me forever to fucking figure out this sodding phone! !

TheDetective Wed 15-May-13 22:46:58

I'll post you my spare stick Horsey grin.

I think everyone is having mixed up periods here though!

PurplePidjin Wed 15-May-13 22:38:49

Evening all, I've been at work and having read the thread have promptly forgotten everything hmm

Chasing you know what you need to do, and we're here for when you do it <hug> My children's centre are fab for stuff like this, really nice ladies with access to all kinds of resources. Could you go to a group and just have a little chat with someone after? They could help you plan, and to P you'd just be doing baby stuff...

R and dp went to talk to the antenatal group this evening, charmed and terrified the lot of them by all accounts <proud>

horseylady Wed 15-May-13 22:37:00

Erm my af should have arrived today.

I'm on the pill.

I've been 'horse -riding' once in that sense.

It's just late?? No???

I'm doing an experimental detox. Well it's a very structure detox actually that has been recommended by a fair few people now. I'm skeptical. Heard good results from it. Not sure ill believe it till I do it though.

Firstly af needs to arrive. Yesterday I was just thinking I could possibly have another. Maybe. After seeing my pregnant friend and feeling her bump. I wish I'd appreciated mine a bit more.

TheDetective Wed 15-May-13 22:29:47

I think size 14 would easily fit a size 20 in. Easily!

O is also sporting 2 wet patches on the swaddle VQ I couldn't face taking it off. It's only small. The swaddle is 0.2 tog. It will dry grin. If it isn't bothering them, leave them be I guess.

I'm covered in baby sick, and I'm not complaining, am I?!

He also woke with wind earlier. He's never done that before. I now know how frustrated you feel VQ. Another fucking reason added to 'why I wake up'. The list is growing!

TheDetective Wed 15-May-13 22:27:21

I put off giving O the pepti jr because I didn't want it to be CMPI.

I am not looking forward to the nightmare future eating. I suspect his is fairly mild, so obviously hoping he grows out of it.

But in the meanwhile, just sad

I am very grateful that DP's mum will be having him when we are back at work. I'd worry so much if he was at a childminder or nursery, that he would be accidently given food that made him ill/upset, or that he would get another babies food he's ace at that already and nom it before anyone could stop him!

MIL is having her other grandson, who is a definite lactose intolerance. So I suppose it will be easy for them both to be together! The only thing is, I know they keep trying him with unsuitable foods. So I think I might have to give her a list of what's okay and what isn't (in terms of processed or packaged foods). I don't think she would be offended. She seems very proud of how I mother O, so I think she would respect my wishes.

If it does become a bigger issue in future, I suppose if I was really worried I could send him to mums school again. There is no way anyone would get it wrong there grin. But fuck, that school run again? For another 7 years. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Detective that dress is only available up to size 14. Fuckers! I can only begin to imagine what could fall out of it.

MM only saying it as it is smile

Pass you are funny grin

Lily your little one will be having the appropriate help from the earliest possible opportunity. That has got to be a good thing x

Fucking nightmare of an evening here. DD2 still unwell and not settling. Sodding cough. J also decided not to settle so they have only just given in. I am pooped. He puked whilst being winded and remained asleep. I have mopped it up and the sleeping bag is not wet through, just on the outside. I did not have the heart or the energy to wake him to change him. I do not hold out much hope for sleep tonight.

Welcome back Izzy!

What sport are we partaking of tomorrow?

YellowWellies Wed 15-May-13 22:18:07

Sorry Stunt I meant that the GP would think it had only presented now if you go now iyswim and would think it odd to see at 6 months.

Good luck with the gaviscon - if it is CMPI he'll be a different baby on meds, and trying gaviscon will be the first step to getting the right mix for J. I know it's not nice having to give your baby drugs every day as it makes the diagnosis real and made me sad but (fingers crossed) happy baby = sleep for Mummy! smile He will grow out of it but there's some great meds for making them comfy in the meantime.

I've been avoiding upping J's meds as I just want him off omeperazole sooner rather than later and being 'normal' but he was getting more and more uncomfortable and I've realised I was doing that for me not him - so I upped his dose in line with his weight gain and he's much happier. Bad mummy blush

MM you are young and gorgeous but as Pass says you only realise how great your figure was, what a tosser you wasted your youth on and how bad some fashions were until c 10 years later! grin

kirrinIsland Wed 15-May-13 22:09:27

kyz thanks for the tea

Chasing N always sleeps best for DP. I'm always glad she's slept well but a little infuriated at the same time ;)

bplp glad things are looking up on the sleep front

Eliza good luck with the house viewing smile

I am also getting more flab not less. I have a proper jelly belly. I'd be very grateful for some tips too horsey

YW I am in awe of your pedometer. I have ditched mine as it just served to remind just how sedentary I have become. In my defence there is not much I can walk to a round her, I have to use the car for a least some of the journey, but even so - there are opportunities to add mileage but i was always running late/didn't have the rain cover with me/insert other excuse here. My job transfers to my nearest city in Oct though so I plan to bike in. Just need to get moving now.

Welcome back izzy Hope you had a good holiday smile Sorry the sleep is still shit sad

lily good that you've been referred and that it's hopefully to fix at this stage

chick Hope H is better soon

chasing Your GP makes a good point.

Apologies for commenting on things that happened 12 ago - that is roughly how long I've been writing this post! 

TheDetective Wed 15-May-13 22:04:17

My mouth is still agog. I don't think I have ever been agog before. shock
