Just want to say - cake and Trying - Kismet is TTC too but have not heard from her for a bit. Hope she's ok. Those TTC are totally welcome and we're still rooting for you too. We all started this journey together and we said we'd be there for each other through our journeys. This thread has been going a while now! I wish I could magically make you 3 pregnant (I'm hoping I've not missed anyone and I don't mean "make you pregnant" in a Pervy way!!). I just wish I could offer more than support and encouragement. As the fertility docs always say "it only takes one swimmer" so don't forget it and there are some amazing long term TTC girls on these boards who have amazing pregnancy stories. They used to keep me positive.

Fellow mums - I hope you're sane and that your feeding/weaning is going ok. Jo - my SIL started with baby rice, porridge, puréed apple, pears and banana. Hope you're getting on ok with it. Messy business! My breastfeeding is ok but Heidi's feeding can be chaotic. Recently I've not had longer than 2.5hrs between feeds and my fellow mums have had 5hrs at times!! She's also had quite green nappies which I've heard shouldn't supposed to happen. We have to give her formula at times to settle her and that makes me feel lame - especially if she's had a good feed. It's all so confusing and I'm so so sleep deprived. The lack of sleep really gets to me at times and I feel I'llnever sleep well again. It feels like being distant and unreal and I can't concentrate or even see straight at times. What a freak I feel like!

Mojo - I really hope you get into the birthing unit. You'd love it. Just request you get in when you phone triage once you've gone into labour. They can tell you if its feasible. Don't worry about positioning either. Whatever way baby is lying will be - try and focus that she will most likely be in the right position for birth and can easily move into position at the last moment. Heidi wasn't at all engaged and actually engaged in labour - it felt weird!

Snuffles - hope pregnancy is treating you well!

Mini - awesome pic! It's really detailed! You must be so relieved. Focus on the positive now. You've reached a huge milestone and all is well! Hope pregnancy is also treating you well.

Big hugs to you all. Stay strong and positive and try to smile as much as you can!

Aw cake and trying, your time will come! And like the others have said, I hope you'll stick around with us- we love having you here :-)

Mini- Yay- so glad to hear that everything is good!

Jaynie and mojo- so nice to hear from you two!!!

Banana- sounds like you've had a go around. I'm sorry things have been a little stressful. THese little ones sure do give us a run for our money huh. Try not to stress about how the births happened. I know it's easier said than done, but cherish the time you have now with them

Oh ladies I hope I didn't come across as you's don't make me feel welcome. Of course you all do there is no doubt about that! And I love reading everything that is going on with you all, it really gives me hope that it will happen for us soon. I'm not going anywhere I will always pop in and out of here but I will leave my own troubles in my journal! Lol

Sooz you are right, Kismet is still trying too but she is taking a more back seat attempt at trying now and just pops on and off here. Hoping the more relaxed route works for her!

Thank you for all being you lovely ladies

Ooh it's been busy in here today!

Banana - You poor thing please don't beat yourself up about the breastfeeding, god it is hard enough with one baby let alone two. You have done amazingly. And your feelings about their arrival is so, so understandable. You went through so much so don't feel guilty for feeling that way. Know that you're making up for those lost days though every minute of every day, and the longer you spend with them the less significant that tiny bit of time will seem. You are so strong and are doing incredibly. Your girls are lucky to have a super mama like you

Miniegg - I'm SO glad to see your beautiful scan picture. Pregnancy is such a nerve wracking time but I hope you can breathe a tiny sigh of relief now

Trying - I'm thinking of you all the time You are so kind and wonderful and will make such a wonderful mama when your time comes. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your generosity this weekend. (Everyone - Trying spent her bank holiday weekend traipsing round the shops looking for a t-shirt set I want for my OH and Felix for father's day as she saw a post I made on Facebook saying I was struggling to find it) You are a true friend and I hope all your wishes come true.

Cake - I haven't got to know you as well yet but the same goes for you. I hope the rest of your TTC journey is quick and painless and you're a mama very soon.

Kismet - likewise, if you ever read this I miss you but am glad to see your updates on Facebook. I'm so glad I 'met' you and I hope that wherever your journey takes you, you are happy always.

Sooz - Please don't feel like a freak. Talk/write as much as you can, get it all out, there's nothing odd about the way you are feeling. The sleep stuff will get better soon and this time will be a distant, fuzzy and happy memory. SO many women supplement with formula so don't worry about that. Every drop of breastmilk she gets is better than nothing and as long as she's full, that's all that matters. More practically, I was told than green poops can mean a fore/hindmilk imbalance - do you let her go for as long as she likes on one boob or do you switch?

Snuffles - huge congratulations on your beautiful baby girl. I can't wait to 'meet' her and hear the name you've picked. Your photo on Facebook was lovely, I don't know how you've managed to keep it to yourself for so long!

AFM - feeling super sentimental tonight (can you tell? ). I have had a couple of rough nights and am totally knackered and also have just put Felix to bed in our room for the last time. We will be moving him into his own room tomorrow night. I feel really sad as it's like the end of an era. This raw, painful, amazing, intimate time that you have your whole little family in the same room is so short. It never occurred to me really - when you have #2, #1 is already in their own room - so this is the only time it will ever happen. It has been so special and I feel like he's growing so fast
