    So, first of all I do the washing.... and the Ariel Actilift Gel I use has bloody stained one of my favourite white Maternity tops a funny green colour.....

    Then =I use the tumble dryer, and manage to get blue stains from a blanket that was in there, on a brand new gorgeous white maternity shirt, bed sheet, and our new duvet cover.... I could just cry!!!!

    I have no idea how to get these stains out, or even if it's possible!! I've got my two tops soaking in Vanish atm, but I've not got a clue what else to try.... bleach? Or would that just turn the stains an even weirder colour?

    oh aksjvhadifhI :nope:

    Oh no, poor you! Hopefully the vanish will do the trick for you. Bleach is an option, definitely. I had to bleach a stained white top recently (only needed a tiny amount) but it does depend on the fabric. Are they cotton tops?

    Hope you have a better day tomorrow, when technology isn't against you ;) I had a right cranky day yesterday, moaning at everyone. But I got a tesco delivery today with lots of nice food, so that cheered me right up. Food is good :)

    Also, love the last line of your siggy - I have ME, so I am there with you! x

    the shirt is normal shirt material (sorry I'm having a bad day, and can't remember what it's called haha) and the top is cotton I think. I'll try bleach tonight if Vanish doesn't work.... and if all else fails, use fabric dye to try and dye them white again... and if that's unsuccessful, just dye them black haha.

    I've got some cookie dough ice cream in the freezer which I think may just have to be raided hehe.

    I've got M.E and fibromyalgia and I was just having a really bad day anyway from overdoing it, so god knows what I was thinking doing the washing etc :dohh:

    Cookie dough is the way to go!!!

    If you are ever having a bad day again, just PM me and we can whinge about symptoms together, ok? I have plenty of them. Restless legs are giving me hell at the moment. As for the brain fog / baby brain / blonde moments, well I don't stand a chance, lol!

    Will do :) :flower:

    I was terrible pre-pregnancy, and I'm just absolutely hopeless now haha. I get my words all confused, and forget what I was saying etc. How my poor hubby hasn't lost it, I'll never know! Patience of a saint I swear lol.

    How far along are you honey?

    Oh Gosh! Poor you... I remember it happened to me with my daughter's flower dress. The dress is all white and there is a green ribbon... the dress turned greenish. I couldn't stop crying. People say the dress looks like normal as if it has been made like this.

    what about bleach? I really hope it works...

    19 weeks tomorrow! Have a decent amount of energy at the moment, but am not going mad with it - learned that lesson a long time ago. Had ME for about 12-3 years now. To me, pregnancy is just one more symptom in a long list :haha:

    The patience thing applies to my hubby too. I don't think I could cope with me on the best of days :hugs:

    Aww nearly half way :D

    I've only been diagnosed for about a year, and for 6 months with the fibro. Saw the specialist before I knew I was pregnant, who wanted me to go onto Tramadol, and different sleeping tablets to try and help manage everything, and I found out I was pregnant a that weekend. I get such bad pains, but no other pain killers work for me, so I'm just having to try and get on with it. I'm now on crutches around the house, and a wheelchair when I can go out, which is rather depressing at just 20 years old... but hey ho, life brings us these challenges!

    I am with you on the bad day thing. Just gone to take the chicken I'm supposed to be roasting for dinner out the fridge and it's not smelling or looking too good!! Means I'm going to have to faff about going to the supermarket to buy a new one.
