i am going for my first scan in the morrning, can't sleep my bust is killing me and my brain is much. it's great to here from you all when everyone is a sleep. i would feel so alone without all you girls thanks
Just been catching up with all the ... Had a really busy day yesterday which started with my dh trying to fix my mums dishwasher, then getting a radiator for his car, then going to his nannas as it was her bday, then to the shops and finally to his mums for dinner -
Then off to my friends today for more !!
Dee, whilst i am not entirely sure what your news means i gathered it was good so fingers crossed for the next step.
Trish - Hope you are still keeping well and having a relax now your mum has gone home.. I have to agree with Jeanette about telling work or at least asking to be kept away from the prisoners, now you have gotten this far, you need to protect yourself and the babe. Only just over a week for us now, keep on smiling I will be thinking of you
Jeanette - Glad to hear you are feeling better, i know its a cliche but time will heal, its just all been such a shock to the system.. Have another to keep you going. We are off to Southern Spain, my aunty and uncle have a villa over there, we are going with my parents and my sister and her dp and then my other aunty is also flying out so there will be 11 of us in the villa, i have checked they have warned the neighbours as we are a very rowdy bunch! Also found out yesterday my brotherinlaw will be at his girlfriends parents villa at the same time which is only an hour away from us, so yet more socialising on the cards i think.
Well, better go and put the shopping away from yesterday and start with the breakfast.
Dee - Excellent news from your scan!! You've responded really quickly, I had 4 before I was ready for EC!! Good luck for Monday, I'll have my fingers crossed for you.
Claire - It's getting nearer, thank god! I'm still frantic after the 2 awful results from the other girls on the 1st trimester board, but I'm trying to maintain my PMA and am still using those visualisation techniques!! Your hols sound well-planned, and pretty hectic!! ^drunk^ It occurred to me the other day that I'll be enjoying a very sober Christmas this year, which took a bit of mental adjustment! Still, it'll be worth it. I hope you have a great time.
Jeanette - How's it going honey? I hope you're getting back on an even keel and things are settling down
Well, I'm off to finish off a belated lunch. Catch you all soon.
Its Alexandras birthday today . Cant believe my baby is 7!
I did a birthday party yesturday. There was 25 children. OMG I must have been mad. But I survived as did the clown who entertained them!
I cant believe how insensitive my family are. Not only did they turn up two hours after the party had finished, but they didnt even bother spending any time with Alexandra as they were too wrapped up with my neices baby. As far as I was concerned it was my dd day so they should have made an effort. Or am I being to sensitive?
I was so mad I couldnt speak to them. To make things worse, not one of them has phoned today to wish her a happy birthday.
Families (cant spell)!
Any way I wont bore you any more! I hope you are all well. What fab weather!
Jeanette - I'd be livid too. Seven is such a milestone birthday for a girl! Hope she enjoyed the party. Can't believe you had 25 kids!
We're going through "How was School?" "Great" - "I DON'T WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL (wail, wail) "I have a tummy/head/knee ache) routine at the moment! dd wants to go back to nursery thank you! I'm having to grit my teeth and shove her in every morning and pretend it's not getting to me at all!
I have my interview with Dr Wren tomorrow to talk about future IVF/using my one blasto for FET. Heh Ho!
Just a quick one tonite, i cant be bothered to go and find my glasses and my DH couldnt manage one of the 2 things i asked him to do!! which means i have had to put Leah in my bed until i make hers (just been to my mums for dinner and knew i would be late, so i asked DH to make her bed and put washing out) oh what a hard life, well i supose at least the washing made it to the line
Jeanette- you must be to have 25 kids!! I have only 12 coming to leahs party next month and i think thats a lot!! Glad to hear you are feeling better and yes i would be cross about my family ignoring Leah.
Just spent ages typing a message on here then lost the damn thing ^furious^
Sorry for lack of posts, but my computer has stopped notifying me when there's something new on here for some reason, so I thought there wasn't anything!! I thought you'd all gone quiet!
Fee - Great to hear from you and good that you're moving forward with the treatment. Thanks for the good wishes Hasn't really sunk in yet, and I'm still spending most of the time terrified that something will go wrong Got our first scan on Tuesday, so hopefully everything will be fine so I can relax a bit!!
Jeanette - OMG, I can't believe you had 25 of them there!! ^shocked^ I would have gone bald! I agree with the family thing though, it was really awful of them to practically ignore Alexandra on her big day. I would've been livid too.
Clare - How are you enjoying your "single" life with dh on nights?! Mine is on them too this week, so I'm enjoying a girly moment ^bunches^ with lots of Corrie and fattening food!!
Well gotta go as I need to leave for school in 10 mins. It was his first morning with the new childminder today, so need to get the SoP!! Catch you all soon.
I have pc control again tonite, baby is packed off in bed hubby at work -- been 'cyber chatting' to my aunty in spain (the one we are going to stay with next week) she has msn and its a damn sight cheaper than ringing She says we are having better weather here than there so i have told her she has 5 days to sort it out
Trish - Pete is on lates, so its not quite like when hes on nights, he is home by 10.15, but it does give me pc control and i have been slowly munching my way through a new 'brownie' flavour vienetta which he doesnt know anything about Took Leah to play in the pub garden on the swings and things this afternoon it was gorgeous so sent him a txt to rub that in to- How many weeks will you be when you go on Tues?? are you suffering with any sickness at all? I have to say when i had leah i didnt know i was pg till 20 wks, i sailed through..
Jeanette - Hope you have gotten over the party at the weekend i bet it made your head !!
Well think i had better go, i finally logged onto the friends reunited site on sunday and received my first email from my best friend who i lost touch with about 7 yrs ago so gonna go and email her.
Love and good wishes to all
Clare - Sounds perfect to me! All of the freedom and none of the lonely nights!!
Unfortunately I'm not as lucky as you with pregnancy symptoms, as I was hospitalised with both of the boys by 8 weeks due to horrendous sickness I'm off sick today as I felt really awful this morning, but to be honest I'm paranoid about being there at the moment so I'm not sure how much of it is psychological! I still feel nauseous, but haven't actually ^puke^ (bit graphic I know, sorry). I'm half hoping for the sickness as they always told me in the past that it's a sign of high hormone levels and means there's less chance of miscarriage. Mind you, it does make for a miserable few months, but I'll grin and bear it as it will be worth it in the end.
I will be 7 weeks exactly when we have the scan on Tuesday, so I think we should be able to see the heartbeat I can't wait, but I know I'll be a nervous wreck on the day!
Well I'm off to try to eat something, though I don't fancy anything but oxtail soup and we haven't got any!
Claire- Im so impressed the washing made it to the line. I ask, but end up doing it myself anyway!
I think we should start a new thread on how hussband training! (after all dog training is really popular........!)
Fee- hope your appointment went well. Alexandra feels ill every school morning! Its so difficult as one of these days she will be unwell. I picked her up early from school the other day. Funny thing is by the time we got home she made a very quick recovery. Cute hey!
Trish- how are you?
Im still waiting for my dh to do his sample. I phoned up the hospital. The hospital want a form from the doctors. They will then send Richard an appointment. He goes to this appointment and then takes his sample in another day! How silly is this!!!!!!! (bearing in mind he doesnt want to do it in the first place!)
Just a quick posting today, got the dinner to do and my babysitter/house minder for next week is coming round for a few instructions on our electronic gadgets and the keys!!
Jeanette - I had a right when i read about the hubby training its so true.. However, i have just been out to the tumble drier and there are still wet towels in there, bearing in mind that i put the washer on at 7am and he didnt leave the house till nearly half 10 i think they shouldve been dry!! Sorry to hear Alexandra is having a bit of a 'phase' i think they have one for everything... is it a new school for her?? As for Richard tell him to stop being a big wuss!! Men are so funny, all they have to do is to produce a IN PRIVATE might i add, whilst we have to suffer the humiliating legs up and everyone having a prod and poke ^furious^
But seriously, i hope he does overcome his shyness its just another test to tick off of the list like us!! Gonna wait for af after seaside then start on the clomid again so ^shocked^ comes alive!!
Trish - Hope your ^puke^ feeling stops soon, i supose its better than actually being ^puke^ - i hate that!!
Remember more PMA, I bet you are both really excited about tues now??
Well i promised to be quick and still didnt manage it!!
Off to do some chores
Dee - Good luck for your test in a couple of weeks
Jeanette - Aren't kids little demons?! Sammy is most unimpressed with school too, as he feels he has to "work too hard". Why is it I can feel 30 years of dole-wallering speeding into his future?! If this is his opinion at 5 I can only dread the nest 11 school years!! This is all alien territory to me as me eldest has always loved school, even now at 15. I blame the parents!!
Clare - Yes, Tuesday can't come quick enough for me, but it still seems like an age away. Unfortunately the queasiness turned into full scale ^puke^ yesterday afternoon, so it looks like I'm at the top of the old familiar slippery slope! At the minute I'm half enjoying it as it makes me feel more pregnant, but I doubt it'll last!
Well, I'm off to lie down for a while, as I still feel grotty. Take care all.
