Banana - believe it or not we have no snow whatsoever! Feeling very cheated living in the Highlands and seeing the rest of the country building snowmen!
CC - God how stressful, hope you had a fun filled snowy weekend to make up for your terrible journey!
Jaynie - Yay, such huge congratulations to you! What great news and I hope a bit of encouragement for the other scardicats who are still waiting. I'm sorry you had a longer journey than most but so glad it has happened for you now
How is everyone doing? Other than this exciting news it's been quiet here lately.
We have had an eventful weekend for totally different reasons. Firstly Felix smiled yesterday for the first (and second, and third!) times which was just amazing. He'd sort of done it a few times before but it was the first time we'd been sure it was real and not wind/reflexes. Also in completely unrelated news me and OH DTD for the first time post-Felix last night! I will be way TMI here so stop reading if you don't want to know - but this was the one thing I felt I could never ask anyone about and was really worried about. It was nice and not painful, just a little sore at the 'entrance' and to be totally honest deeper inside I couldn't feel all that much Not that it felt loose, just a bit numb I suppose. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting, I sort of anticipated 'trying' a couple of times and having to give up, but it was definitely different. But to be fair there was quite a lot that was different - we were both very nervous and tense, we were using a condom for the first time in ages, used loads of lube which can sometimes deaden sensation a bit and were obviously doing it for the first time with a baby snuffling in the same room. So all in all it was a success, I'm really glad we've got the dreaded 'first time' out of the way, it helped us reconnect a little as a couple but physically I do hope it improves. I'm sure it will though as we both relax, I continue to heal and I get back on contraception so can bin the condoms again. I am having the implant fitted next week
Aww Jo that's lovely, Felix's first smiles :-) I've always been afraid to ask friends who have had baby's what sex is like after giving birth... OH is terrified ill feel different!
Good luck with the implant, I've been on it before, as have a few friends and we all had quite bad experiences with it... It literally made me feel suicidal, another friend suffered terrible mood swings and another bled for around 8 months constantly! I've also got a nasty scar on my arm from where it was put in and taken out as they didn't use the same scar!
I'm not trying to dissuade you as it's your choice, just giving my experience of it :-) xx
Jo, I assumed you would have loads of snow up there! How strange! That's so lovely about Felix smiling, bless him! And good news about DTD too! I'm sure it'll get better each time you try now, but I can imagine the first time is pretty scary!
We've had a really lazy weekend. We were meant to see several sets of friends but the snow put paid to those plans! So instead, we had a very small wander in the snow in the park near our house yesterday (with me nervously clinging onto DH!) and built a huge snowman in our garden! It's snowed all day again today, so I'm desperately hoping for another snow day tomorrow! I feel much more nervous about the snow since being pregnant, so would much prefer to stay safely tucked up at home than have to leave the house and have a bit of a hairyjjourney in!
