How do you get going again after pregnancy?
How many weeks will you be then? Keep dosing up on the multivits and hopefully you'll avoid the lurgy. Those first weeks go by sooo sloooowly don't they?
Am now 29 weeks here (I think Anj is very close in dates too). Little one is quite a fidget. As I am so short (5ft), I look huge. The guy next to me on the plane 2 weeks ago asked if I was likely to give birth on the flight and people are astonished when I say I have 3 months left. There is nowhere else for him to go though other than OUT!
Surely paracetamol is paracetamol is paracetamol. Same goes for ibuprofen. If it's the same no of mg it doesn't matter if it's tesco value, or the expensive stuff. (says the one who always buys cheap as chips own crand stuff and find it works perfectly.) The actual drug is a mollecule that surely must be the same.......
Eric has really got a full blown horried cold, really gunky eyes, felt warm this evening. He has gone to bed with another dose of calcold, which is exactly the same as medised. Should really get some more before I run out! The dose for a 6 yr old is 5ml so I gave him half. If he wakes up in the night he can have some ibuprofen as a top up, poor boy.
Got 2 friends without their mummies coming over tomorrow after school - what have I done?? Plan is to make their own pizzas then watch some telly or something.
30 weeks tomorrow TT. I feel huge and uncomfortable too, especially in the evenings. I think the first 20 weeks drag a bit, when it is all a bit uncertain and you don't show, and the 2nd half seems to go quicker. Not long til the scan now EF and I'll join you in a quest to get superfit again once they are born. One thing I am pleased about is not being pregnant at the same time as Princess Kate. Sure she will be in lovely elegant maternity dresses sporting a lovely neat bump!!
I have one of L's friends over every other Thursday, she goes there on alternate Thurs. I find it easier to look after 2 as they kind of amuse each other, although L's friend is a boy so he gets bored as most of her toys are girly toys. I do lots of colouring, cake decorating and cutting and sticking. And TV when all else fails!!
Boo to all the illnesses. So much going round. We have a kiddies Christmas party on Sunday, we have hired a hall and bouncy castle and we are all bringing food and games etc. However, 3 of the kids and their Mum have gone down with diorreah and vomiting and 1 has tonsillitis... I hope it is still on. We are supposed to be going out for our Mums night out on Saturday too, so I hope that is still on.
Can't remember much else, and it's at the top of the page....bless the kittens CM, they look so sweet on FB.
Home made sausage rolls. Hmm, I might give them a go. I think I did them a while ago and they were tasty. Might be an idea for packed lunches.
Off to bed now, in a bit of a strop with hubby as he was supposed to put a curtain pole up in our lounge and basically did, but in the worst humour ever. I might as well have done it myself... need to get those hook thingies to hang the curtains tomorrow though so still no blooming curtains. Good job we are down a country lane and not overlooked in anyway!
I used to lie to get the Medised, they either knew and didn't care, or I am a good liar!!
Can't believe you are full term already Vixo! Fastest pregnancy in history!! So exciting. Lol Isabelle was a wee toot, yes my twins were 6lb11 and 7lb1 at 37 weeks.
Kinsey, good about the weight. Hope you manage to get back out running soon. Hope your brother is ok but sounds like you were right not to bale him out.
CC since you asked... ! 3 miles tues, 4 on wed, 5 yesterday and 7 this morning. Pishing rain and howling wind today. Nothin sore just feel weak which is to be expected.
I'm sure we are going to get chicken pox for Christmas. It is rife around here. Last week a wee boy was sent home from the twins nursery as the spots were popping out before their eyes! Other 4 have all had it so guess its better to get it over with really.
Keep taking it easy for a bit longer Lotte!
I agree about the paracetamol all being the same, although you do feel when buying the cheapo stuff that it is somehow inferior!
My two have still not had the pox, beginning to wonder if Sophie is immune or something although as far as I know she hasn't been directly exposed to anyone with it. I keep thinking how healthy we've all been for quite a while now, apart from the odd sniffle - really hope we stay healthy until after our New Year's Eve holiday! Probably just cursed it...
Well done Aidan! I keep talking about it all with Nicky but he just refuses to sit on the potty (or even let me take his nappy off!) so I am just going to wait until he shows some interest. He'll probably be as awkward as his sister about it . How old is Aidan now?
Hoping for 5th nap of the week in a minute (Nicky, not me!) - he had a good week and a half of point blank refusing to even go upstairs, then on Monday he looked so tired that I thought I'd suggest it, and he agreed! 2 year olds eh...
We're having a family photo shoot tomorrow morning - my birthday present - so I hope everyone wakes up cheerful...had to wake both kids up this morning and it was a right rush to get to school!
And Pulp concert tomorrow night
Oh and EF hope this week flies for you - I remember all too well how the days drag and in your situation it must be ten times as bad.
For some reason I was thinking that Aidan was younger than Max, so was relieved to hear he is a bit older. We gave up on the potty training when we went back to UK and haven't really got back into it but will have to make an effort over the next few weeks. They like them to be trained by the time they are 3 when they go up to next class in nursery.
I think I've said before on here but they immunise against chicken pox here, is a prerequisite for nursery/school. Hope your 2 can get it out of the way quickly if they do succumb, Lotte.
JG, I hope you were being tongue in cheek when you said for Lotte to 'keep taking it easy'! I've never run those mileages even when 'training' for an event! Haha. I'm such a fraud for being on this forum
Vixo, not sure if I have seen pictures of you on FB but I picture you as tall and elegant so not surprised you are not showing too much. Yes, world's shortest pregnancy but how far along were you when you 'fessed up on here? Unlike me who probably blurted as soon as I tested (actually I think that was last time, told you ladies even before I had told Mr TT!).
Mr TT got back from a week away late last night and Max must have heard his voice as he got up at about midnight and then came and snuggled in bed with us last night, yummy!
Am going to take him to a 'live nativity' tonight at a local church. Not been before but should be interesting, apparently about 200 people and loads of animals take part. Free cookies and hot chocolate (but not for me ). Maybe I should have offered to play the part of 'Mary - before'!
Nor me TT, I meant by Lotte's standards
