Thought I'd start this in honour of Purple's effort so far, hope you don't mind Purple I liked this title best.

Welcome to our shiny new thread

Uki Sat 23-Jun-07 05:11:54

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and all get some well earned rest.

Let's try again (accidently shut page down halfway through the post!)

Well done UKI for starting new thread, have just spent ages catching up to find link to new one - good thinking!

Lissie - congrats!!!! Sending you lots of good vibes THIS BEAN WILL STICK!

Juicylucy - congrats again!

Daisyboo - slow down girl!! No-one expects you to be supermum, you've still got a lot of healing to do.

I've been poorly hence the big catch up, been diagnosed with an inner infection so have been give penicillin. Have gone slightly deaf due to blocked up ears!

I've bought the Summer Infant Prenatal Listening System, I did ask for it to be sent to my workplace but no they sent it to my home address, which means a trip to the sorting office this morning on the other
side of Stockton to pick the darn thing up Will let you know how I get on.

Hope everyone is feeling fit, despite SPD, morning sickness, back ache, lack of sleep, strange dreams, wierd infections etc. Whoever said pregnancy makes you feel wonderful wants shooting

daisyboo Sat 23-Jun-07 07:35:27

added myself. Glad you had a good nights sleep Daisy. My dd was on 3 hourly feeds for months (cos she was so small and had problems feeding)Tis amazing what passes for a good sleep after that! But a jog?! Good grief woman!

Bouncing T - enjoy yr monitor. I would have loved one of them did intend to get one but the weeks just kind of flew past.

Watched Artic Monkeys on glasto telly coverage last night. Think peanut really liked 'em and was having a little bop in there!

I went to a 'slingmeet' yesterday to try and help me get my head around the different sorts of slings and which one I want to get.
There were lots of little babies there who were just so adoring of their mothers - you should have seen the way they were staring with such love at them. It made me shed a few tears!! It also makes me really look forward to the new born baby stage (despite the fact that I found it truly horrendous last time).

Bouncingturtle Sat 23-Jun-07 12:36:12

Just got back from seeing Shrek the Third with DH and DSS, very good, but when we got in the car, the heavens opened!! Roads were quickly flooded, thunder and lightening, parked up on the drive, got out the car, and DSS decided to try and get out the wrong door (i.e. the one I wasn't holding open for him!) and it was like standing under a cold shower! Quick dash inside, patio is now under an inch of water . Seems to have eased off now...

PurpleLostPrincess Sat 23-Jun-07 14:03:23

Morning all! Thank you sooo much for starting this thread Uki, I couldn't cope with the responsibility of picking the name! You have chosen well!

I've reached my weekly checkpoint so I thought I'd update myself on the list...

Had a really bad night last night - couldn't face going to bed and not sleeping so stayed up really late. Ended up going to bed about 4am, still couldn't sleep. Eventually got to sleep but then woke up every hour for a wee and my hips were really sore! Ended up taking some painkillers at about 9 this morning and having a sleep while dh ran around doing some housework!! Feel a bit better now and can't wait for this evening as my friends have invited me round to theirs so they can pamper me!!

Hello to everybody and love to all!!

xx

ejt1764 Sat 23-Jun-07 17:23:07

Can I make a suggestion? Can we do this list so it's a list of EDDs? That way, we don't have to worry about it getting out of date ... ?

I'll update myself first

Well picked up the monitor, but guess what - need a 9v battery... which I don't have! Still, it does say it may not work until week 21, so got 7 weeks to find one lol

Hi Ladies - I'm rubbish, I've no idea how many weeks I am, so I've worked it out from EJt's with my due date!!!

Just realised the time (these light evenings always put me out!), have to go cook DD's supper now - hopefully be back later, when more time!

hope everyone is well

BTW Daisy - you're mad!!! Where's the energy come from for a jog?!!

PurpleLostPrincess Sat 23-Jun-07 17:41:00

Hope you find a battery turtle, I've often considering buying on of them - let us know how you get on!?

Good idea ejt, I was worried about that too and was on the verge of offering to update it regularly but then I realised that would be a mammoth job! Here's mine with EDD:

Hiya fettle, sorry crossed posts there. You must be 26 weeks if you're due a week after me, how lovely!

daisyboo Sat 23-Jun-07 18:20:59

LOL ladies....I was only kidding about the jog......it's just I've not had six and a half hours sleep in one stretch since about half way through my pregnancy and I feel full of beans as a result...

...I settled for cleaning the kitchen worktops and doing the washing up and a load of washing!!

Ok - just added me in, but now it's bathtime, so I have to go again!!!

Daisy - still a lot to do!! Glad to hear you sounding so well!

Saw my friend today and her nearly 3 week old baby - forgotten how small they are when born and she was 8lb10oz! so not that small considering DD was 7lb 4.5oz

got to go - DD just banged head!

we'll be up to 1,000 posts again soon, i thought it was usually quiet on the weekend.

Purple- after my bumper sleep friday night, I had rubbish one last night too!!!

dh and ds still sick and now at the coughing stage, after being woken every hour i got hungry and restless so had hot choc and read my book for 2 hours. Dh is asleep again and ds is watching bob the builder, i love how even when sick he has loads of energy.

Mad4girls - yes it's the same one - congrats on the bargain, I paid £20 (inc p&p) on Ebay for mine! Stil got to buy a battery though! And no sadly I am not a skinny mini I have a great big fat tummy that is all fat. But sure there's a baby in their somewhere

Uki - Poor you with ill DS and SH I hope they get better soon.

Firststar - ear infection not painful, just annoying coz can't here much out of my right ear but I do get these niggly little headaches as well. Oh well, gives me an excuse to ignore my fil when he starts wittering - off to see the ils.

Fettle yep I too go into transports of delight whenever i see ickle babies...

Hello to everyone else, hope Stinkypink is less stinky Daisyboo

Looks like we will have 3 babies arriving in close succession PLP, MB and EJT!!!
