Is that it?  More, more - it's just getting exciting!  I keep hoping they found a second one behind the first or something

Kinsey - it's the medela one I have.......sans attachments!  Give me a few days and if I still haven't found the bits I might ask to borrow those!

AYE RIGHT CARO!!!  That would've been a laugh indeedy!!

Do the inside leg measurements etc that they explain on the website JT, then call them up.  That's what I did.  No idea if they are small or large.  We bought M the tiniest one when she was 3.5 and we have only just raised the saddle a bit, but she is quite titch,  They are very heavy for the size they are, not sure if that would impact pn him coz of his joint issues?  But I guess once you're riding it the wt of the thing doesnt matter.  They have good resale value too, and obviously with no 3 on the way yours will get good use within the family as well!

Great story EF though sounds pretty scary at times - you really are supermum!  I've never heard of a post-op itch - what causes that?  Hooray to no more vom hospital food !

Ridiculously busy here at the moment, don't know if I'm coming or going!  Been to circuits tonight, now got to get showered and plan lessons for tomorrow.  My day is pretty much: (after usual morning flap) drop Sophie at school as early as possible so I can scoot off ASAP, get to work with about a minute to spare or sometimes less (class sitting waiting for me - not good!), teach till 1.30pm with 2 x 15 min breaks, then off to grandparents' to pick up Nicky, brief sit-down at home then time to go and get Sophie, then tonight we've had gymnastics club followed by tea and me going to circuits!  It's no wonder I can barely remember anything else - have missed by dad's and 2 friends' babies' birthdays this week !  Lotte, how do you do it?!

So apologies for not reading back but I am trying to keep up. I'm really enjoying the teaching but roll on the end of July when I finish for a month!

Oh and EF, fess up-you did know it was a boy didn't you?

10/07/2013 at 22:13

Yeah I knew . We really struggled for names for a boy too as Andy was originally vetoing anything Scottish! 

10/07/2013 at 22:16

Yeah, and you definitely said something at some point that made me think its a boy....and then denied it!

She knew - she told us she knew ages ago!!

Glad to hear he's doing ok EF, and great to read the story now we know all is ok with you both. So pleased you'll be t home or Lou's birthday too, I think that would have been hard to miss. What does she think of her new little brother? I bet now he's here she's absolutely delighted, despite the y chromosome!

JT - I agree with Caro about the bike - look at the measurements and then give them a call, they're very happy to give advice. I think the sizes are exactly as they say on the website. Depending on how tall ted is you might be good with a cnoc 16. Isabelle must be just over 120cm and she can happily ride her Beinn 20 small now, and looks very big on her cnoc 14 if that helps at all! I don't think they're particularly any heavier than any other bikes size for size.

X post! Love the name too, I am very fond of both the Fraser's we know.
10/07/2013 at 22:47

Eek to the blood loss EF, how are you feeling now?  Good to be home, hope the feeding is going well, let me know if you want the pump xx

we have the smallest Isla and next one up, I measured then rang, they advised going for the smaller one while they are learning to ride As they were both borderline on the measurements.  Martha is loving it now, she bombs around the garden all the time and complained this weekend that we hadn't had time to go to Brooklands where there is a huge old runway they can ride around.

fab effort EF. and FYI it was quorn cottage pie I think that night. definitely quorn something - you posted on RW on FB about it. and then you said you went and bought food from the café and we all had a good chortle about that. and about 2 hours later Fraser was here.

so happy for you guys - I think he probably is THE thread baby. after the years of trying and heartache and everything else you went through - I reckon we are all just so happy he's here. we could at least have given him a middle name

one of each is great - although my two hate each other, but yours are spaced further apart so may not!

10/07/2013 at 23:12

Ah yes the quorn cottage pie which had no flipping quorn in it. Shudders

well got 30mls which is not bad a start as had to take from boob he just drained at 9.30! Left boob is still useless. He drained that at 7pm and there's still nowt there.  Andy's going to try him with this at 1230 feed and I'll top up if needed. 

Lol to giving fraser his middle name. We pondered using grandparents but my dad is lumbered with Kenneth boyne (oh yes!) Simpson for forenames and andy's dad was Terence Harvey. I said I'd rather just use andy's middle name since Louise has Elizabeth the same as me!

Eeeee just text my friend to arrange catching up this afternoon and she's in labour! So exciting 1.5 weeks early too!


11/07/2013 at 00:10

Well said CM!! Definitely Fraser is definitely THE thread baby!! What's Andy's middle name? I can see why you aren't keen on the other options!!

11/07/2013 at 01:47

EF, awesome race report. I agree totally about the torture of the inflating and deflating leg massagers. They drove me nuts. Never had the itchiness but I had huge uncontrollable shakes after both my sections. 

Wow what a traumatic night for you both. Andy must have been beside himself when you had to put the phone down. Hope the little fella stays warm and you get to keep him at home from here on. 

Hoggle, exciting about your friend. Hopefully some good news before the day/night is out.

Isabelle has the bizarrely named deuter schmusebar. It's a good size for her - can fit her swimming things in, or a picnic and change of clothes, and has straps the right size.

That's such a cool name Vixo, I had to look it up!  Love the essential teddy bear pocket!

Max decided that his teddy bear wanted to go into Oscar's bouncer yesterday.  Was very sweet, he managed to get teddy's big fat feet and legs through the leg holes but unfortunately they were too short to reach the ground

Isabel Rose arrived yesterday do she shares Matilda's birthday which is cool! Sounds liLe it was a very straight forward home birth. Can't wait to meet her!! My mad friend is planning on coming to M's party tomorrow so will get some cuddles then.



11/07/2013 at 20:35

Wow, that's hard core Hoggle!  I thought I was mad going out to dinner with O and Max and Mr TT the night I came out of hospital but he was a whole 3 days old by then!
