How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Adding my official congratulations to EF - woo bloody hoo
Reading but never time to post. Achilles better so some running going on at long last. Hubby has a new job - which is making my financial heart tick a little more easy I have to say! Seems like a good job to me as 3 weeks in and he has been in Japan all week on business - business that seems to involve lots of drinking champagne and sake, lucky git He is keeping his consultancy business going on the side - calling it his pension plan!
Vixo - hope your friend's baby keeps making progress.
Right, better get off here - am on school pick-up which needs me on the other side of Edinburgh for 2:50pm!
Sorry to to name check but waves to you all - and welcome to the newbies whose names I have forgotten but do remember that one is a special kind of vet nurse!
oh EF that is absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!! well done . now - is it 1 or 2 do you reckon?
awful news re the baby and the dog. i have to say, not really a dog person and for that reason don't trust them around kids at all. i never find i can predict whether it's going to be a lick or a bite they give. but i understand that some people don't share my view.
glad things are looking a bit better for your friend's baby, vixo.
Just want to delurk to say congratulations EF
Brilliant news EF. Absolutely chuffed to bits for you.
Well that will teach me to read the weather forecasts. Set out for a run in light drizzle (was desperate for some fresh air after a rainy couple of days too.!) After a couple of miles, I stopped at the public loos, I plan my route around them as ALWAYS need a wee after a mile or so. Well, when I came out, the sky was black and the wind had whipped up and it was pouring!! And I had only been in there a couple of minutes...anyway decided to head on and got absolutely soaked and freezing! Managed another 2.5 miles in it though. I guess we have your weather JT, CM and MM. It's vile out there now, and hubby is driving back from Exeter this evening.
The poor baby killed by the dog is awful. I wouldn't trust any sort of dog around kids either... but especially Jack Russells, they are just evil, snappy and horrid. I can't fathom why anyone would get one of those types of dog. (really sorry to anyone who has one!!)
A friend from Leilas preschool just had a baby and spent 2 nights in hospital with him after he had Bronchitis. Hope your friends baby is on the mend Vixo.
Good news on the new job for hubby too MR. Japan sounds good...for him!!
Hmm. Wonder if there is a magic fairy who will come and do the pre-school pick up for me...
Just re-read my post and realised how judgmental it sounds about Jack Russells and their owners... and I can't edit it!! I was bitten by one when I was younger and haven't liked them since. I am sure there are some nice ones out there though
Well, no fairy has turned up so better be off to get L and take her to ballet.
Huge congratulations to EF!!!! Was laughing reading back over your preg testing stories, I have done some pretty similar stuff in the past (and am I the only one to keep the first positive preg test?! A few friends have told me I'm gross to have ancient wee sticks in my bedside drawer...)
Anyway, got to do some work(!), back in a bit.
Lol Sonya - I have Lou's one somewhere. I also presently have a rather large number in my bedside drawer and worse they are all marked up in permanent marker with day and whether am or pm
Yeah EF. Super super news. Made my day ...
Other news from Caro and Vixo not so good.
Have 3 over excited boys here so best get off here, as their friends Mum has got stuck in floods. Everywhere is flooded around here. Nightmare. I haven't left the village today other than to run at 5.30am and am pleased I've not had to. And that was a 10 miles wade not a run. Took me ages and I'm covered in scratches from clambering up banks to avoid getting up to my knees and even my hips in places. Ridiculous weather...
yes, absolutely ridiculous weather! I have just managed to slip UP a step in the woods (?!) and face planted in the mud. no-one to witness it thankfully, although i then had to run past the junior school at pick-up time and all the mums were laughing as i am head to toe in mud! best get in the shower really
FIRST , just soooooo pleased for you and will be keeping fingers and toes etc firmly crossed, HOW are you going to survive the next few weeks? I am the wierdo who continued to take my temperature through the first few months just to check it stayed high!!!
Heard all about the flooding South of here ... sorry about our blue skies and sunshine we've been enjoying
Oh Vixo, really hope your friends wee one improves.
The news was totally depressing this morning what with one-week-old babies being mauled and the grooming of children, just all so grim. I like to buy a newspaper to keep up to speed with things but increasingly find myself having to hide it so J doesn't read it and start asking me about all these horrible things going on and what it all means.
Wooooooooooohooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!! It is a long way to go but you have taken the first massive and most important step - yeay!
Saw the Jack Russell story - awful.
Hope your friends' baby is ok Vixo, I know all too well the feeling of your little baby in hospital and nothing you can do but fingers crossed all will be ok.
glad you are home, Hoggle
just been to Pilates. yawwwn. but hopefully back will approve of it. any tips on how to motivate self to do pilates at home? can't watch telly as can't get the angle right, plus supposed to be head down or whatever so hardly ideal. could do music i guess but find it just makes me want to go too fast. suppose i should listen to some edu-ma-cational ebook or something??
forgot to say - had E measured and weighed yesterday when we went for pre-school imms (wasn't given a choice - whisked us into room and just did it) for the first time since i stopped taking her to baby clinic when she was 4 months old after getting a check-up phone call from a trainee health visitor to ask whether i was still remembering to feed my baby milk as the records had flagged that she was not gaining well and i hadn't been back in to get her weighed. (those who were on this thread then will remember she had hideous reflux and basically would NEVER feed. i think on a normal day she took the sum total of about 8-10 ounces of expressed breastmilk in 24 hours, some of which was inevitably vomited straight back up). anyway, she is now (aged 3yrs 9 months) on the 25th centile for weight and between the 91st and 98th centile for height. so definitely a tall and skinny bird. no wonder her trousers are always falling down! methinks she was never destined to fill out, even without the reflux!
I keep meaning to get the boy weighed just to see how much of a chubster he is!
I am doing about 15 mins of pilates type stuff per day, usually whilst listening to the Archers on the i pad! Sad I know.......
I picked a good time to see what was going on in here then ............. big, huge, massive congrats EF, so chuffed for you . In the interests of your financial health (no suggestions for your mental state ) may I suggest buying tests in bulk from somewhere like this: http://www.homehealth-uk.com/medical/pregnancy-tests.htm you can buy 50 for £20
