Hoping, Eloise does that too, she often wants her daddy but we're in a mummy rocks phase at the moment, so she turns round at smirks at John, and then I do too. Im so annoyed that you are so far away, I think Penny and Eloise would be best pals. In fact i want Eloise to be pals with all the disco babies. I think she'd flirt with Kash, Luca, Ben and Alistair. Im not surprised surrogacy is taking up all your energy at the mo, it's such a massive thing Id be worried if you werent getting so into it!
Mel only a month to go to find out then! exciting. Its true that you put weight on your bum if its a girl. Or maybe i just got a fat behind.
Allie, I dont know if youre to ill for too long but a dr would so defo see one. I put the telly on for weezie sometimes. You cant do everything and I agree that short periods of relative educational inactivity dont matter. Weezie is obsessed with animals (my fault) so thats her thing. You arent preggo are you? I would add lemon juice to that cocktail too - i have lemon, fresh ginger and honey in warm water which is ace, but i know cinnamon and honey is a bit of a cure all too
Nato- This morning we got up early and took a bath so I was her best buddy after that and a trip to the park yesterday didnít hurt either. I am secretly pleased that I am her favorite again.
Yes! They would be awesome little pals and I think itís about time we have a Disco baby play date with all the babies on the thread. We need to start planning! We should all get together and take the kids on a Disney cruise or something fun like that! Next summer any one?
AFM- My surrogate counselor finally called me last night and we got some good news and bad news. The good news is that the couple we picked loves us! The bad news is that their doctor has discouraged them from working with us due to my miscarriage history. They went through a loss at 6 Ĺ months, one of the reasons we picked them, so the doctor doesnít want that risk again even though I have been medically cleared, been through all sorts of testing and have one healthy daughter after all of that. Iím really sad about it but totally understand. I was also told that most likely if I did have a miscarriage my days as a surrogate would be over. My counselor thought it was a good thing that we are not going with this couple since they are older and using their own egg and sperm which has a higher chance of abnormality. She did send over our profile and medical records to our 2nd choice. They are a same sexed couple in NYC. They love us too so now we are just waiting for their doctor to approve us. I really hope my past miscarriages donít make the matching process too hard on us.
oh goodness hoping, that is sad news. Sorry to hear that! I hope your second couple works out for you
I am almost certain that Kash would be kissing all the disco girls, and love playing with all of the little ones.
Hmmmmm, now I am going to end up trying to figure out if my butt got fatter or not, lol! I've only put on 10 lbs so far, and you really can't tell I am pregnant. I have a bit of a stomach (on top of my fat), but that is all. People have commented to me that I look like I have lost weight, and I feel like I have in my legs as my jeans are loose there. I am still in my regular clothes as well, and with Kash, I was in maternity clothes by 9 weeks!!! I also gained a lot of weight real quick with him. I am enjoying the fact that I might not gain 50 lbs this time, and will be able to take it off quicker lol!
Ive been reading but havent had the energy to reply. Thankfully the dizzyness has eased and I havent fainted again. Im lucky in one sense as steve is pretty good at spotting the signs when Im going to faint so sunday night he was there to catch me I suffered with it in all my pregnancys and with Benjamin was still fainting at 6 months plus every now and then. Im being looked after benjamin has been as good as gold but has spent a lot of time watching disney junior which I do feel so bad for. Hes good at playing with his cars while I watch him and will bring his books to me. The nausea has eased a little its not so constant. Benjamins got two teeth coming through so he hasnt been to happy at last night is the first night hes sleep through in a week.
Nato Ive got a scan monday morning steves coming with me and steves mum is meeting is there so she can sit with benjamin while we go in. He came in with us last time but was to chatty so steve had to take him out.
Sassy Im glad things are going better for you and hope you and danny have a nice time out.
Hoping aww glad pennys being a mummys girl today benjamin goes through phases hes all about daddy at the mo steve gets the biggest hugs and I get bounced on. Sorry about the surroacy hope your 2nd choice works out. A disco meet up would be great but I cant do a cruise love disney hate boats!! Could you imagine all our little mischief makers together I think they would cause a lot of mischeif whilst looking damn cute.
Nato thats so sweet abiut elosie cleaning the floor Benjamin was helping me with sweeping up but decided it would be better to brush his hair with the brush rather than sweep the floor
Vicky poor hero I really hope all her blood comes back normal.
Allie hope you feel better soon. Once your immune system is lowered you more at risk of picking everything up. I do hot lemon and honey too never thought about using cinnemon will remember that one.
Ahhh cant remember what else Ive read sorry but love you all and thank you for your support.
Sassy, I think you and Danny are doing an amazing job with this now its becoming reality, both of you. I just wish my parents could have behaved like this. I just did a quick google on how to tell a 2 year old about divorce and there's some info if you need anything to help clarify your thoughts on that, such as
Gibs - boooofn. im sorry! 8dpo espec with those blue tests is early.
Hoping, how disappointing. I do think though that if the couple are older, it would be terrible to go through an mc, and then be discounted because of a reason that couldnt be proven not to be 'your' fault - and you mustve given this couple a massive boost to give them the offer in the 1st place, it must be nerve wracking for them if the surrogates are fewer than couples needing surrogacy (dont know if thats the case though) so to know someone wanted them must be very encouraging for them. I hope they find their surrogate soon. I assume that the risk of mc with a surrogate is higher than average just as it is with more run of the mill IVF, so maybe youre destined to help a younger couple with (for eg) uterine abnormalities, you might get the chance to help someone with severe adenomyosis - think how proud hearty would be of you!
Vic, how is little Hero doing? what you describe is absolutely not related to childhood cancer. I hope youre feeling less anxious now the drs have seen her and i hope your mind is at least temporarily put at rest
Mel: things like appointments need to be booked in person if there's work and meetings and stuff in the way. I always find that you have to look at at least 2 or 3 times. If you want to feel like youre taking weight off him while hes working, thats prob one of the things that will cause more stress if you try to do!
Luce: as with Allie, dont worry about a bit of telly, you need the help, its not like youre down the pub while you stick him in front of cbeebies. Anyway, the reason youre needing the help of the telly will benefit ben in the long term, he gets to be a big brother! Great you have all the support for monday! looking forward to hearing about it.
Hearty - I am a bit mad with Tim for putting the phone down on you. Like its your fault you needed extra care. I am also the same and have even refused to touch the money I saved in 2009 to cover my maternity period. However, i think this is one of those emergencies. Delilah needs you at home, you arent out of the maternity period. Maternity period is a year in the uk for a good reason. Can you sell some stuff on ebay as a token gesture to meet him part way?
Fm: I think i have stealth ovd by accident - not done it so am out for this month at 1dpo.
Weasel has been hilarious this morning. I have a recycling bin in the kitchen, and i wash everything out before putting it in there. Eloise opened the lid, took out a plastic cooking wine bottle and did her staggering walk round the kitchen apparently swigging out of it. If i post a still from the video I took which isnt going on fb, dont judge me. Its not not even got dregs in, nor is it a glass bottle.
With Kash's swearing and weezie's boozing, our mummying skills are 2nd to none.
