I have been hanging about for a few days waiting for the new thread, so I thought I'd get off my ass and make one myself. Happy weekend all, and Happy Mother's Day!

MisSalLaneous Sat 13-Mar-10 13:10:06

That's great, thanks PFJ!

Happy mothers day to you all!

ThePFJ Sat 13-Mar-10 13:43:46

I was told by the hospital today that my pregnancy hormone levels have dropped to just 3. Thats good news, because I can now wait for my cycle to return after the ectopic and ttc again next month....

MisSalLaneous Sat 13-Mar-10 14:59:19

That's good news, I'm glad for you.

ThePFJ Sun 14-Mar-10 10:01:35

I put some extra cure pictures of my little Jack on my profile... poor kid is being slobbered and drooled over by me since the whole ectopic thing. I got some sympathy cards last night and I feel a bit set back.

Also feel that I have sweet friends though...

Happy Mother's Day xx

LadyBee Sun 14-Mar-10 14:40:23

That is sweet, and here, have some more mini-eggs from me <<shoulder squeeze>>

Happy Mothering Sunday to all! We have just got back from a lovely picnic in a park we'd driven by several times but never been to. It's enormous - far larger than we thought and with a lovely historic house, lake, gardens, and large playground. B ran to his heart's content and scrambled up and down slides, he's now asleep and I think will stay like that for a couple of hours gringrin

He had made a lovely card with his childminder which made me cry to see it (I'm a wuss), and DH bought me some very delicious Charbonnel & Walker chocolates. nom nom nom.

Hi everyone!

Jack is VERY cute, PFJ, and so sorry to hear your news. Good to hear you can start TTC next month though, it sounds like that's what you'd like to do.

I've had lots of 'so when is George getting a baby brother or sister' comments lately. and I admit I'm very very broody again. I've got myself referred to the pre-conception clinic, started taking ultra strength folic acid and stopped taking my statins (all diabetes related stuff), and am now trying to convince DH that now is the right time when I get the go-ahead from the docs. I joined weight watchers a couple of weeks ago too, to help to get my blood sugars straight, and I've lost 6.5lbs in 2 weeks. I'm really struggling with not falling into just eating when I'm bored.

DH took the day off work tomorrow, a couple of weeks ago, so that we can go to Chester oo. Now it looks like I'll be spending most of the day hanging round the hospital waiting to see a sugeon, to see if the skin abscess I've developed on my tummy (one of the places I do my insulin jabs) needs draining. I kind of hope so because 2 lots of antibiotics haven't touched it, and it REALLY hurts! At least DH will be around to have George, I'd be a bit stuck otherwise.

I've had a nice lazy mothers day, with several cards (most made with me at various mums & tots groups!) and a bottle of perfume. G is out in the garden with DH now, and the sun is streaming through our bedroom window so I've opened the window and got back into bed to do some MNing. i haven't changed a single nappy all day either, which is a lovely treat!!

And grin grin grin congrats to LadyBee!

Oh, and it's George's 2nd birthday next Sunday, where have the past 2 years gone?????

LadyBee Sun 14-Mar-10 15:55:29

Ooh Knitter, hello! I've been wanting to see you back so I could show off you my very first knitting project (I'm so proud!). I had to do the arms several times firstly because of various yarn mishaps and then it turned out the pattern seemed to missing a few inches in arm-length, but now it's done I'm hooked.

Now....where did I put that photo? Oh darn, it's on DH's phone. Oh well, will put it up on profile tonight sometime.

LadyBee Sun 14-Mar-10 16:04:58

oooh, just read the rest of your post (was a bit too excited to tell you about my project blush - thanks! and that's very cool about you getting ready to ttc (hopefully) too, good luck!
Abscess sounds painful, I hope you can get it sorted tomorrow though, while your DH is looking after G - would he take him to the zoo anyway? Sounds like nice boys day out!

I've been trying to encourage DH to start taking B on days out by himself - partly so I can get some time to myself but also because when I started thinking about ttc no.2 I wanted there to already be a pattern of dad spending one-to-one time with B so that it can continue when no.2 arrives and it won't feel too disruptive. That's my theory anyway.

I think seeing the list of baby dates, our stats and their weights made it all come rushing back for me. Can't believe how fast it all goes. But last year just whizzed by. It does freak me out thinking about that when I start to think what could will happen this year shock

LadyBee Sun 14-Mar-10 16:06:08

god, I sound like upsydaisy. Must stop 'ooohh'-ing. grinblush

It'll be George's first trip to the zoo, so I really want to go too!

Can't wait to see your knitting, well done! I think it's all the more satisfying when you've had a few problems along the way, as it means you've figured new stuff out to get it finished, IYSWIM?

Scorps Sun 14-Mar-10 16:33:33

Ahh bless you all ttc-ing etc my baby shop is SHUT forever and ever and ever. Oh, and ever!

I got cards and presents today too. I'm doing ok, had a wobble yesterday but ok today. I'm aware time is moving on and that he will want sex/a gf soon. I don't know how to deal with that - as you all know I very much enjoyed him in that way and I used to feel he was the most beautiful man I had ever seen. It's not nessecarily the physical act - maybe just that he will like her more than me iyswim? A bloke I kinda know has shown an interest but I'm not ready. I don't know why, but it doesn't feel like that time for me yet. I hope I get over that one day though!

Can I request a summer meet up? I so enjoyed last year's one, and if we organised a date at least, it would give those of us who would need to organise trains etc, plenty of time to get cheap tickets?

Scorps Sun 14-Mar-10 18:41:07

Yes, that be fun, will have to consider travel/place to stay and amount of dc to bring grin

grin yay!

ThePFJ Sun 14-Mar-10 19:06:30

I would love to meet you lot tell me tell me where!!

ThePFJ Sun 14-Mar-10 19:12:04

Oh Knitter... poor you with the abcess I know ALL about how painful they can be. Just a feather brush against them can make you want to scream. You have my complete and UTTER sympathy. Hugs and mini eggs for you!!

I hope they're weight watchers friendly mini-eggs PFJ, cos there's nothing I'd like more right now than to scoff a dustbin full!

ThePFJ Sun 14-Mar-10 20:21:37

Erm... these are -3 calories an egg, so you actually LOSE weight while eating them. Honest. No, really. Really. Would I LIE to you? HONESTLY. No, no, really really....it's TRUE I tell you, TRUE!!!

~Mwarr slobber drool slobber munchmunchmunch~

~Evil grin~

NOM NOM NOM....

grin

Denny185 Sun 14-Mar-10 22:00:07

Happy mothers day all.

PFJ so sorry to hear your news, make sure you get lots of TLC and fingers crossed for when you decide to start TTC again.

By sounds of it this could become a TTC thread rather than post natal wink

Ouch to that abcess knitter it sounds horrid. Can I request that the next meet up not be the week of the 23rd Aug as Id really like to come this time <<selfish cow emotion>>

Sal DS has toddler dia------- (can never bloody spell it!, much easier in medical notes you just do a dia and then a wavy line smile) He had loads of investigations for allergies and intolerances and thankfully they all came back clear. We were told he would grow out of it eventually, generally it's not a problem we have all got used to him needing the toilet about a third of the way through any meal. I was very glad to potty train him as I was sick to death of changing sloppy nappies.

DD1 and I are going to be bridesmaids grin I wonder if they do floral arrangements for zimmer frames?????

LadyBee Sun 14-Mar-10 22:40:59

I've put my knitting on the profile, along with a photo of DS from our picnic today. The jersey looks a bit deformed, but it actually fits DS really well and the colours are lovely for him.

Another meet-up would be lovely - what a good idea!

LadyBee, that's gorgeous! Sooo.... what's next on the needles?! grin

SuperSoph73 Mon 15-Mar-10 14:48:21

Hey there! I'd love to meet up but unfortunately because this is the first trip back to the UK as a family we'll be rushed off our feet. And we're only around for a couple of weeks ... would have been nice though <<pouts>>

We don't have the diarrohea problem in our house we have projectile vomiting instead Sam has tablets to take to stop the vomiting thankfully but I stupidly forgot to take them out with me yesterday when I took the kids to a friends for lunch so poor littl'un spent all afternoon vomiting over everyone and everything blush

Sounds like you all had nice Mothers Days. It's not mothers day here until May, but Fathers Day is the 19th so better get started with making DH's cards!

BTW I can't see anyone's profile so how do I look at all your new pics?
