Onwards and upwards lovelies... Bfp's, bumps, babies and young graduates, growing nicely back in the warmth of the greenhouse...

<RemindMeWhatSleepIs stumbles past on way back from feeding DS. Notices a comfy patch in the corner and curls up and goes back to sleep.>

Mls ouchy, that sounds very sore! Poor Ds too... Will strive to take your advice and avoid weebling for the forseeable! wink

Having said this, blummin tooth is throbbing away now I'm in bed, all the bloodflow increases at night when vertical as dentist pointed out, rather obviously! Curly thank you for reminding me, yes saltwater rinses the way to go til get hold of my consultant..

Moon only 4 sleeps honey, in fact 3&1/2
technically! wink Nearly there... I'm grrr on your behalf that you're not getting offered more scans, such an unfair postcode system... How are you feeling in general?

Mrskate hold tight too, focus on Ds birthday party, one day at a time..

Remindme how did your sisters scan go today? Did she find out the flavour?

Cupcake how's poor Ds black eye now? I can relate, my fearless little tomboy monkeys always covered in bruises, shes always falling over or taking a knock and rarely bats an eyelid the little soldier! Not just boys!

How's busy working Scottish mummys Neeks and Blue? Hope you're both ok? Are you hooking up over Easter?

You too busy supermummy Lbm? Nice to know you were local today! Know your job sometimes brings you to my hospital, you weren't actually there today were you?!

Sabs thinking of you.. Hope you're somehow bearing up...

Rumours hope you're ok too?

Waves to the lurkers and buddha & barbie if you're out there.....

Hope everyone found us?! smile

Ahhh nighty night remindme smile glad you stumbled in!

<curls up close by to finally get some zzzzzz's too - what time?! How am I still awake?> hmm

Marking place & going back to sleep....

Can anybody tell me what the going rate for a babysitter is these days???

New home, lovely. As long as it smells of air freshener, the inside of a car, fresh laundry and fresh rain (which seems to be my craving in my pregnancies for some reason!) then I'm happy. Just don't think I can sit on a bean bag though, as I won't be able to get back up! The waddling has started already blush

4ever Thanks for starting the thread. Fab news on your scan smile. Hope you're bearing up with the toothache. You're reminding me to get on with making that appointment with the dentist which I still haven't got round to doing yet blush

Remindme Not sure if I've said it, but so good to see you back on here. How old are your DC's now?

Moon not long till your scan where you'll see your precious bean waving to you. I'll be lurking to hear all about it. Bless your DH with his comment the other day smile

Mls Sorry to hear about that you and the DC's are unwell. It sounds really painful sad Hope the cream works.

Mrskate I was never sick in my pregnancies, just all day nausea as well as sore boobs and bloating like you. I know for some people the symptoms kick after 7 weeks or so hoping they kick in with a vengeance very soon! Hope DS's party goes well tomorrow.

Curly so lovely to see you posting back on here too. I've been thinking about you a lot too. Hope the photo of your friend is providing you with comfort.

Sorry it's not a long post but lots of waves and hugs for Blue lbm neeko cupcake Buddha Barbie Monkey louey and anyone else I've missed.

Thanks to everyone for all your thoughtful messages, it means a lot and I really appreciate it. Sadly my Nan passed away last week. We were able to go up North to spend the last night with her and it was comforting that she was moved back to her home where she used to live with my granddad where she passed away peacefully. I like to think she's back with my granddad, who passed away nearly 2 years ago now, with my granddad teasing her already and saying things like what took her so long! Sadly, my Nan won't get to meet this lo, but no doubt I'll be telling both my DC's lots and lots about my precious grandparents and how much they meant to me.

Hope everyone has a good Mother's Day. We're going to keep it low key and spend it with my mum as I'm sure her mind will be on her mum, what with everything being so fresh and raw.

SabsFabulous Fri 08-Mar-13 13:34:19

Had a particularly bad day yesterday as not only was it a week since my Nan passed away but because Saara missed a couple of days of school last week we missed out on the communication that her school were taking part in World Book day and so she was the only one in her class not dressed up yesterday sad felt like such a bad mother

moonmrs Fri 08-Mar-13 13:35:13

Pulling up a bean bag and getting comfy smile I've got a few days holiday now, had some to use up before the end of March, so thought they'd be handy for disguising the scan so no one at work knows. So I am doing nothing for a few days grin Feeling ok thanks 4ever its still the tiredness that's getting me, feeling a bit worried as the nausea and achy boobs have calmed down, not sure if that's normal by now or not hmm but I am officially 12 weeks today, please please please let him/her be ok.

Hello Sabs! I'm sure you are right Grandad is very pleased to have the Love of his life back. Sending hugs to you and your family.

My DD is 3 years and 1 month and DS is 11 months. I can't believe how fast time is flying. grin

MLS I hope you are all feeling better soon.

moonmrs Fri 08-Mar-13 13:38:22

Aww sabs it wasn't your fault, but I know you probably feel like it was. How about if you have your own day where you can all dress up at home to make up for it? So sorry to hear about the sad week you've had. I did smile when you said your granddad would be teasing your nan, its nice to hear things like that, its what gets you through tough times.

Moon, in both my successful pregnancies my nausea had gone before 12 weeks, its natures way of screwing with your head whilst you wait for your 12 week scan! smile Nausea usually slows down once your baby's placenta is working properly (unless you are unlucky and get sickness throughout!). Not long to wait now.

SabsFabulous Fri 08-Mar-13 13:48:34

Moon 12 weeks, another milestone passed. I'm sure the lo is just fine. Enjoy your days off, (whispers) maybe even buying a few things for the baby?

Remindme Wow, your DC's are growing fast! I just sometimes look at Saara in amazement as I cant believe some the things that she comes out with, and then I give her an extra special squeeze as I think shes growing up too fast! Are you planning anything for DS's first birthday?

Think we will have our own dressing up day soon and as my mum said this morning, I'm sure she'll have plenty more dressing up days to come. I went to drop Saara off to school this morning as I hardly ever get the chance to do so, and my mum thought I went to 'have a word' with the teacher for not reminding us! grin

Sabs, no mother who has had the week you've had would be able to sort fancy dress out as well! Quite bad of the school though for someone not to pass the message on, especially for children who are off school due to bereavement.

It does make you feel really bad though doesn't it. My DD goes to nursery 1 day a week and they are always forgetting we won't see messages on the other days. DD was the only one without a teddy and Pj's for their Teddy Bears Picnic. DS was about 3 weeks old at the time and a dash to Tesco with a newborn to buy new pj's and teddy to take back to her was something I could have done without!

SabsFabulous Fri 08-Mar-13 14:16:13

They normally do send messages by text about coffee mornings etc but not about yesterday, and I always try to keep informed by going on the schools website but its not always up to date.

The little madam did tell her dad off as he promised he would come back to the school with an outfit for her but then couldn't go back as he was late for work! grin

cupcakefairy Fri 08-Mar-13 16:47:45

Ooh shiny new thread thanks 4ever.. SO pleased all was ok at the scan too & hope you can relax a little more now! Ds2's eye is almost back to normal now but been awful everyone asking me all week what happened!

mls my ds1 had impetigo quite badly around his mouth a few weeks ago & had cream for it..thankfully none of the rest of us got it but it's nasty, you have my sympathy! Ds kept making his worse by scratching it while sucking his thumb.. hmm

sabs so sorry to hear about your nan. Just so special though that you named your dd after her & she'll always have that bond even if she doesn't remember her. I took dd to a Xmas party last yr where fancy dress was optional but literally every child was dressed as an elf/snowman/reindeer & dd was the only one just in a shirt.. we've all done it! grin
I also just dragged my 2 out to the postbox to post mothers' day cards & we got caught in a massive downpour (ds1 on foot, ds2 in sling) so I'm feeling like a terrible mum right now too, they both already have colds too.. oops!

rumours worried about you lovely.. are you ok?

Hope barbie finds us here..please come back we miss you!
Hi to everyone else so sorry not to do more personals.

cupcakefairy Fri 08-Mar-13 16:50:39

Um..just noticed I gave myself a dd in that last post grin I meant ds, if any of you were thinking you'd missed something!!
Forgot to say moon thinking of you loads for Monday! And yay for 12 weeks! Will u tell work after Mon then? (because it is going to be good news!)

moonmrs Fri 08-Mar-13 17:07:51

cupcake my boss already knows, he knows of my lost lo's and the struggle with the investigations of infertility, so I told him straight away as I thought it was only fair in case it happened all over again. He was so happy he hugged me! I think I will start telling a few good friends at work to start with, if everything's ok, although to be honest I'm surprised no one has guessed. I look like I have eaten way too many pies, and I am eating food I wouldn't normally eat! Maybe I just have polite colleagues!

4everhopeful Sat 09-Mar-13 02:55:51

I'm suffering from ridiculous insomnia! Just crazy, cant sleep at all! hmm

Moon wow 12 weeks!!! grin Yay to a mahoosive milestone, and only 2 more sleeps not counting this one! Great you have such a supportive boss too smile

Cupcake glad DS's eye is better, hope they recover from their colds asap too! Forgot to say, yes, was my birthday on monday but, <whispers, kept it lowkey now I'm 38!> wink

Sabs my lovely, good to see you posting.. Hope you are hanging in there? Bless Saara missing her dressing up day, but there'll be plenty more times.. I'm sure you will all help bring your mum comfort this sunday, though no doubt will be hard..

Happy Mothers day to all all of you, hope you have lovely days, and that you spoil your mummies too! grin Know I'll be spoiling my lovely strong mum!Sadly should be my brothers birthday, so will be taking my poor mum to do what no mum should have to, and lay flowers at his grave, but will make up for it afterwards by celebrating his life, and treating her to a yummy roast and a day of treats.. wink

Gosh, I really must try and sleep, heads just spining with a zillion plans and to do lists! hmm talking of lists am gonnna try and find ours!

4everhopeful Sat 09-Mar-13 03:00:13

My DS has gone missing from your list. He was there originally. i cant remember if he was before or after Barbie's boy (after i think). I use the iPhone app for mumsnet and I'm not clever enough to copy and paste. Can some clever person sort it for me.

Thank you!

Might make sense to put DS under same MN user name as DD else it will look like they have different mums! grin

cupcakefairy Sat 09-Mar-13 07:26:08

I just tried copy & pasting it on my phone but it all went into one long run-on paragraph grin so someone else will have to have a go!!
My ds2 is 22/5/12 ..mls ds was 24/5

Oh & happy belated birthday 4ever!

cupcakefairy Sat 09-Mar-13 07:27:14

And happy birthday to mrskate's ds! Hope he has a lovely party.

Rumours Sat 09-Mar-13 08:25:39

Hi lovelies smile

Can't really catch up but I've been in hospital with ds2 since Wednesday, still here but hopefully get home today, he's off his drip and is now in oral antibs. He's had a nasty virus and got very dehydrated.
