Dreamer being signed off work most of the pregnancy means I am super organised!
On the verge of obsessive compulsive lol, but I love it!
Everything's brought. I've had some luck and got some great deals!
My most recent, I got an Ameda dual beast pump and only actually parted with 13! Lol it was 129.99.
I had a 100 boots gift card from work, plus my staff discount, which took it to 13. and then I got about 10 back in advantage cards points!
So I've been a bit jammy! But love a bargain! Lol
Birth plan. Just get him here and keep us both safe. Im nit really against anything,and I'm not bothering with any regimented plan because who knows what will happen? I think you end up set urself up for a bit if disappointment if it doesn't "go to plan". Only thing I'm not to fussed on having is pethidine.
Ill find out about the section next Monday.
If I can do it naturally the other thing on my plan will be please do let me tear! Lol

My friend gave birth to a bsby girl at 8pm last night 8lb4. 3 days over due and get second baby. They were both home at 1am!! Lol what a trooper!

Yeah dreamer I think so.... But as long as she takes little bits through out the day... Of some sort of calcium then shes grand....try rice puddings!!! They always go down a treat with Conor!!

Conor has been the same the past few nites and has a runny nose... Fighting his naps, and crying a lot....and runny nappies and rash!
But I noticed today that 2 back teeth have cut...now the fun begins!! Ah well just as his sleeping had improved I feel like we are back to square one!!!!

I've tested too Stranje and the IC had a weird second line on it but it was like an error rather than a pos!!! Kinda diagonal?? I have no idea when I o so havent a clue wat dpo I am.....but im day 29 so she's just around the corner!! I have one more IC left so I'll test in the morning again!

Hi Everyone!

Well I have been testing and bfn for me! Which is a good thing right now! DH should find out about the new job this next week so I will be so happy to finally have an answer as whether or not we are moving in the next couple months. Testing again is so weird!!! ALthough much less diappointing when ou are trying to get a bfn than a bfp. Some reason it is still slightly disappointing. I guess deep down I wouldn't be too upset if it happened!

You sound super organized and ready to go Hispirits!! I think it is great not to have too much of a plan. I had plan A, and my plan be was do whatever and keep both me and baby safe....that was all I cared about. I really didn't want to be induced, but in the end it so wasn't important at all. Any scan pics??

Dreamer- it took a while for giada to get used to a cup. Is it the cup, or the fact that she is drinking cows milk that she only takes so little. I got giada one of those cups with a straw because she seems to do much better than a regular sippy cup and will drink more. I also use a bottle still a few times a day as the dr said it was fine. Could Erin be teething? I feel like it is that time!

Trixie can't wait to hear tomorrow!!! I am really hoping for a bfp for you! Diagonal line?? I have never seen that before! It never seems to happen when you have a box full of tests. ONly when you have a couple! Sorry about conor He sounds just like giada when teething. The pear juice seemed to work for giada! I made add some prunes in her diet a couple times a week! Are you worried about spd at all? I kinda forgot about it til i had a flare up of pelvic issues and I started doing my stretches. Some of them totally bring the pain back...like pulling my knee to my chest while lying down- to stretch the butt muscle. I get a shooting pain in the thigh and pelvic joint. I never even got a spd diagnosis, but from what I read that is what is sounds like. It made me think about future pregnancies. I wonder what it will be like?

I am still having pointing problems with giada. Anyone else's lo's aroud the same age and not point or follow a point? She also doesn't stack block or put things into containers. She like to knock over what I stack and take things out of containers but not the other way around. She will put balls into her little play table where you put the ball in and it rolls down the leg of the table and she gets it and does it again. Does this all sound normal? I hate being a first time mom and the internet does NOT help. All I read is that "my autistic son did not point at this age" etc etc. and it makes me worried that I am not recognizing warning signs. I'd feel better if she was saying a bunch of words, but it is still just baby babble!!

hope everyone is well!!

Ouch two back teeth! I shall try have a look in Erins mouth but shw doesn't realy let ne anymore lol will have to peek when she's laughing. Odd on the diagonal line, I look forward to hearing what todays says

Stranj, yes we also moved to a straw cup and she drinks water great from it, she can control the flow much better than the sippy, and it al gets drunk rather than half going down her front. But she will just take sips of water through the day and with her meals. I'd been trying to give her cows milk in an open cup which she'd take a bit at a time maybe 50ml, I was thinking I didn't want to put her off water in her straw cup if I was putting milk in it and she didn't like it. But yesterday I put some in one of her straw cups and she drank quite a lot and was making mmm noises lol. Will pursue and also try rice pudding

Erin does point but doesn't follow a point. She looks around but not at where you are pointing. She puts things into containers and tries to stack but only 1 level. Saying that though, every baby is different and some are just later than others at doing certain things. I would really try not to stress about it all hun, and maybe try give yourself a new goal, like by 18 months if she's not doing these things, then go and see someone and see if they are concerned. If something is wrong, that's still really early but means that you can try relax in the meantime and take the pressure off yourself of what she is/isnt doing. I'm sure that it will all come with time and maybe like TTC if you stop focusing on it, it suddenly happens lol. And try stay off the internet!

Bfn today.....
trix i'm a 14. and i can weigh 10.5 stone and be a 14 or i can weight 12/13 stone and be a 14. i've stayed in a 14 maternity. can never bloody get out of a 14! lol
12 stone 9 was my heaviest, i did have success on diet chef, but its expensive and i did put the weight straight back on.
weight watchers got me to my slimmest but again with ttc and depression i put it all back on.

i have heard some brilliant things about the 5:2 diet. 2000 calories for 5 days a week and 500 cal for two days a week. no restrictions on what you eat.

lots of water is good for shifting weight

another thnig i did try once which did work, but it was very evolved and i was to busy to pay attention to it, was that 'think your self thin' self hypnosis book/cd.
if i had the brain space to focus on it it would have worked.

i hate being a 14.

myfitneespal online or the app is really good and free!


i am praying my baby is going to suck all my fat out my boobs
if i loose weight bfeeding, i may start breast feeding dh too.
hahahahaha lol bitty

you won't be wanting a cuppa round my house lol




theres a link for a group on here starting the 5:2 diet xx
Any one done the fast diet/ 5:2 diet

Hahahaha omg hispirits that's so funny. I think breastfeeding has made me lose quite a bit of weight, which for me isn't that good. I have the opposite problem to many and am too skinny even though I eat loads. I really liked my figure while pregnant because I put on a little more weight everywhere and felt I looked healthier and had a bit of shape. But Erin has sucked me dry lol. So maybe it will work in the right way for you. I'm hoping when I stop breastfeeding if I still eat the same I should put on a little weight again. My pre preg clothes are too big now and a few people have commented that I'm looking too skinny. I know a lot of people might see that as not an issue but it does bug me because not many people would comment and say you've put on weight haven't you, or you're looking fat, but it makes me feel the same way. Anyways rant over lol!

Lol I guess we all have issues with weight....
Don't feel too bad today, the girls at work told me you have to fast for colesterol readings and I didn't cause I didn't even know it was being done, so it's prob a false reading!! Thank god! Mind you I'll still have to go on the 8 th and prob get another smoking lecture from the gp!!!

Got a micro braising I think that's wat it's called... At the beautician today to try and get rid of the stretch marks... Have another 2 sessions left... Not sure if it will work??

Have only attempted the weight watchers and slimming world but being back at work messes all that up so I'm just not going to eat junk and see if that works!!!!
