Apple- as fun as this age is, it is also hard when they donít understand things like hair pulling, throwing things, etc are not nice and sometimes hurt.
Hope you are having fun otherwise!
I too miss hearing from Lit and some of our other ladies who havenít been able to come on. I know how hard it is though!

Ali- look how cute, already looking like a baby! So glad he/she is doing well!

Hi everyone. Sorry I havenít been on in so long. Life is very busy and Iíve been exhausted lately, so posting on here isnít high up on my to do list. I must apologize, but I only read back 1 page because it was too overwhelming. We just got back from a weekís vacation at the lake. That was quite nice! We got a lot of quality time together as a family, which I cherished. Unfortunately, I was so tired and was needing 10 hours of sleep per night plus an hour nap. It was to the point where I became a bit worried about my health! I got my thyroid checked yesterday so hopefully if that is off, I will hear back soon. Also, a major bummer was that my first postpartum period came back on the FIRST day of our trip, so I had it the entire time we were away! Grr!

Poor Vi has a staph infection from a bug bite on her knee, so is on antibiotics and is extremely clingy. Otherwise, she is doing great. She doesnít really hit, but she does bite and she pulls hair like crazy! Whenever my dd1ís hair is near, she will grab two fistfuls and just keep pulling until DH or I pry her hands loose! Yikes! Not sure why they get so aggressive.

My dd1 is turning 4 this week! I canít believe it! We will be having a party on the weekend. I remember always thinking parents of 4-year-olds had it easy, and their kids were so good by then. Well, I was very wrong! Dd1 is so emotionally turbulent and sassy. She has much worse tantrums than Vi still. She is extremely hard work still! Oy!

I have been feeling a bit behind lately pregnancy-wise. I know at least 18 people who are pregnant or just had babies, and itís making me feel like we are taking way too long! However, our plan is still next spring...and we will have to stick to that! Plus, the 2 I have are rather exhausting so it will be good to wait before adding to the chaos.

Ally - as you can see, I feel a bit behind with all the pregnancies around, so I understand even though I have 2 already. Nothing wrong with you waiting a bit longer. Even though a lot of people have shorter gaps, many people wait as well. Iím sure that will work great for you! Congrats on getting your doctorate this coming Thurs!

Melody - congrats on your pregnancy. I canít seem to remember if I knew of it already.

Ally - yay! Canít believe youíre 10 weeks already! Congrats on the great scan! So glad baby is doing well!

VRogers - Iím glad youíre adjusting to life with 2 and that E is filling in the gap you didnít know existed! Thatís so wonderful!

Apple - good to hear from you. Sorry to hear you were a bit run down recently. How are you recovering from your surgery?

Hi to everyone else. Iíll try to go back and read more pages later.

Just popping on quickly ladies, everyone so busy these days, myike is def a bit crazy at the moment with the school holidays.

Ally/ good luck honey!! That grad picture is def one for the wall !! 😍 one to be very proud of miss! X hope Isa is well x

Lit / hi hun !! X we have missed u 🤗.. glad u r doing ok, sorry life is so busy for u at the minute. Spring sounds good time to start baby making glad girls are doing ok.. happy birthday to dd1🎂

Ali/ hope u r doing ok hon xx

Vroggers, yeah Iím doing ok hun. I agree these little ones can be little monkeys at times at this age.. my Ds gets some proper slaps from O 😬 .. we are definitely putting our foot down with it though and stopping O if he starts getting rough. He has started pulling a really feel sorry for himself face when he gets told no haha.. proper bottom lip 😂.. then legs it off after we make him give Ds a hug 🤗 hope u r girls are doing ok x

As said already just really busy here at the moment had some nice weather so making the most of that. Iím going away with my 4 boys in a couple of weeks to a caravan in the lakes. Iím sure it will be crazy 😜 but really looking forward to some mum time x Iím also taking my nan who we are all really close to. Just a little concerned as she has had to have a biopsy this week from her cervix and a bladder scan, just got everything crossed the results are ok 😣

My boys are all good. Little O was a monkey and tried to bite 2 children at nursery today 😔.. he is fine now home, Iím hoping the biting phase passes quickly ! Ds is just a cute full of questions about everything !! His latest is he wants to know how babies come out 😣.. he is 5! What do u say to that ? Lol.. I just donít want to go into detail and I canít remember my older 2 asking that young .. Iíve been a little silly myself yesterday and decided to play with kids and was dancing to a you tube kiddy song, kids laughing their heads off, I then totally forgot myself for a second and jumped with O dancing 😬then very quickly realised straight after that something def pulled inside.. Iím a total muppet ! Itís been really uncomfortable all day .. def in the area where I had op inside. Iím gonna keep an eye on it a few days and keep fingers crossed Iím not done any damage, 😬

Iím going to an opening evening tomorrow about my pending boob job ! Iíve got my consultation early September with the plan if all is ok with other things to look into booking it for end of jan ish .. x

Iíll get in again when I can just busy at work rest of week 😣

Apple - thatís exciting that youíll get to find out more about your upcoming boob job! Are those common there? I have never met anyone whoís had one.

Sorry to hear you strained yourself a bit. Hope all is ok!

That sounds like your ds is very curious indeed! It gets tricky when they start asking more questions. My dd1 keeps telling me that she wishes there was a baby in my tummy. So cute!

Sounds like all of our ďbabiesĒ are hitting a bit of an aggressive stage in one way or the other! I hope we can nip it in the bud ASAP!

Lit/ I do know a couple of people over here that have had breast enhancement and my friend came with me to open evening to discuss having a lift. ..I didnít like the look of that lol..itís really a very personal thing that Iíve always considered since late teens. Iíve just got to stage where I think Iíve had my 4 boys, always been there and done everything for others in my life and always put myself last. Iím 40 next month so Iíve been thinking itís now or never lol.. Iíve got a consult with surgeon on 4th September.. so we will see 😍.., I had to laugh they said they only take cash for the consult.. I thought yeah I bet u do.. !

Had a nice day with boys today, Iím looking forward to going away with all 4 on my own later this month..Iím hoping the caravan Iíve booked in decent, itís cost quite a lot so Iím hoping so. I could have gone cheaper but I wanted it to be right.

On the 40th subject Iím booking a spa day with a few friends from work with an afternoon tea. Not sure what else to do yet.. might go for a meal.. itís a bit awkward as some of my family are not in a good place with my oh at the minute. They just donít like how he has been over recent months, He doesnít even know the depth of it, itís a conversation I need to have with him that I keep putting off. Iím not sure how far back you have read but Iíve been having a few problems , Iím a bit in the air with it at the moment .. the joys of families ! x the ladies on here have been fab as usual😍😍..

Ali/ hope u , bump and boys r doing ok hon x

Ally/ hope Thursday went ok for u and Isa is doing ok x

Vroggers hope u and your little ladies are well,

Sorry If I missed anyone x

Thanks to those thinking about me. Just been busy. Also absorbed into a book. Which I now finished which really saddens me! I have to wait till 2020 for the next one.. ugh! I'm sure the next year will be too busy to really read much anyways. Three little ones? Oh boy.. I'm sure this one is another boy, too!

Lite - So glad to hear from you. I miss all our usual ladies. I'm with you on the 4 year old thing. O is still very much a handful. Throws fits, has gotten to the point that he talks back, stubborn as ever. At least he's not aggressive. T definitely is and can throw a worse tantrum than O ever could. He gets sooooo angry. Here I am.. 11 weeks along towards more chaos

Apple - Glad you got to have some fun with the children.. sorry you strained something. I'm not much better. I was out for a few days because I bent over and picked up a small toy.. my back gave.. ugh.

AFM - Not much.. 11 weeks already! Tired still and getting heartburn regularly.

T is cute as ever even though he's an angry little child sometimes! Something he's done the last few weeks if I prompt him, sometimes without prompting, he'll go "Daddy.. where you go?" With his hands up in the air in a "I don't know" type of way and looking around. So stinking cute. He's talking some, but not a ton. I think he's about right where he's suppose to be.

Well T is being demanding so I can't keep replying. I'll try to pop in and give a better update.

Well, my dd1 just made me lose everything I wrote. Grr.

Apple - you definitely deserve to do something for yourself! Iím happy you are! Thatís kind of funny about them only accepting cash for the first visit! Haha.

Sorry to hear you and your oh are still in a bit of a tough spot and that itís making things awkward with your family.

Those sound like some fun birthday festivities planned for your 40th. It definitely warrants a big celebration!

I hope you enjoy your holiday! Iím sure the more expensive caravan will be worth it!

Ali - thatís good to know Iím not the only one with a difficult 4 year old. Thatís nice O isnít that aggressive. Dd1 is definitely my more aggressive child. You are certainly going to have your hands full with 3! But youíre going to do awesome!
V does the exact same thing when someone leaves the room: ďwhere dada go?Ē And puts her arms in the air just like you described. So stinking cute!

What book were you reading? Sorry itís finished already. Thatís always disappointing when itís a really good one!
I just realized you are very close in pregnancies with my co worker! She is 12 weeks now I think. I am the only one who knows! Hehe!

Hi all!
Some good news, passed my viva on thursday, i am officially a Dr! Yah! It went well actually, nervewracking but it went well.

lit- Glad you had a nice time away and some quality family time. Shame about having the period! maybe that's why you were so tired when away? I always feel more tired on my birthday. Hope you get an explanation for your tiredness.

apple- your trip sounds great, where abouts do you go? Boys sounds great, and ouch for your pulled muscle. Hopefully it will ease off and you haven't done any damage. The spa sounds great for your 40th. How are things with OH just now? do you think you will talk to him soon?

ali- can't believe you are 11 weeks already! time is flying!

afm- all good here, just been celebrating. Went out for a nice meal. dh got me some cute gifts, and my friend has booked us in for massages next weekend, can't wait.
So i have a job at uni starting next month, which is 2.5 days, and i have an interview for a job tomorrow that's 1 day a week, so fingers crossed i get that and then that's me sorted for the next year.
Isa is doing fab, very playful. He does this thing where he gets up and dances on the floor just randomly, so cute. He also is trying to jump, he can't get his feet off the ground but he's so close. Eating and sleeping well,. but still not talking, lots of babbling in his own toddler language. does worry me a little. but lets see.
I don't feel broody, but i do feel like i should have another one relatively soon, so im thinking next year haha. I dunno we will see, i don't want a huge gap.
anyay, i have some minor changes to make to my thesis and i need to get on with it.

Ally - congrats, dr! Glad to hear youíre doing a lot of well deserved celebrating!

Those jobs sound perfect! I am so glad things seem to be working out. Would be great to only work 3.5 days per week. That sounds exciting about possibly trying next year. Maybe we will have our next ones at the same time.

Yes, I think you are right that it was my period. I hadnít had one in so long that I must have forgotten how bad they are!! My energy returned to normal a couple days after it stopped.
