How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Oh yes and Lotte - very bizarre how you went to your hubby's wedding! Makes for a good story!
£150, did it last Nov as part of Willaid month http://www.willaid.org.uk/
Basically every Nov lots of solicitors take part in willaid and instead of paying them, you give them a suggested donation which goes to a charity instead - the suggested donation for a pair of mirrored wills was £150.
TTid - boo hiss! Not good timing (although possibily better than our major bathroom leak when Eric was 2 days old, when the plumber spent 5 hrs in our house and made several holes in the ceiling!!)
Sounds like a big mind F*** for you EF (()). No suggestions other than it sounds like talking to the genetic counsellor is a good idea. Surely if you explain the background they will talk it through with you and hopefully help you to keep things in perspective. Also, the presence of a nasal bone is such a clear difference from your last scan so that has to be a good thing!
Ttid - that sounds like a nightmare!!! Not what you need right now! Perhaps go to Dr's after you grapple with insurers and get your BP tested - should send it high enough (temporarily) to bring c-sec forward!!
Went for a bush walk with Matilda and a friend and her little one yesterday - too hot to be out in the sun in the afternoon at the moment. It was so much fun - M walked such a long way and the kids just loved it!! We have a couple of monarch caterpillars that M has been watching for several weeks (I don't think you have them in the UK - beautiful caterpillars and butterflies) and one is forming its chrysalis now. I'm going to have to Matilda-proof the plant though as am worried that M will think it's edible!! She is obsessed with my vege garden and picks everything and eats it - no peppers left, corgettes only protected by spikey leaves and beans haven't made it to the table yet!
But EF, isn't it the blood test that pushes it up to the level of 1:2000 etc? We looked at the test and decided it was too much money for not 100% peace of mind?
TT - floor sounds a nightmare. Hope it gets sorted quickly. Our next door neighbours came round saying they were having a visit from a structural engineer as their ceiling has fallen in and they were worried the building wasn't safe. We are a 1865 semi detached so I guess it would have affected us too! Thankfully just dodgy plaster, but I couldn't imagine moving in with parents again with L and a new baby.
Oh EF so hard for you. I was lucky as we never had to worry about it, well we had no tests bit I did worry!! I never had the nuchal fold scan with the twins as we would never have been able to cope or decide what to do if one was high and the other low and of course blood tests show nothing with twins. I wouldn't have risked a CVS or amnio due to previous miscarriages. For that reason we also never had any tests at all with Sophie either. My friend is a GP and she had low odds on her 3rd and had the CVS done but she had never miscarried before so had no past feelings on that front.
I did worry a lot in the 3rd trimester for some reason, but then I worry about everything. In the end the kids have their issues, asthma and sight and Harry has his one testicle and all the issues with that but otherwise they are fine and most likely yours will be too. So hard though I know. Maybe some counselling is the way forward. I did feel happier at the 20 week scan after features were seen and measured I must admit.
Gees Lotte 101.5 miles. I am on for 85 this week and I know about it, so tired, hungry and a wee bit grumpy truth be told . Are you going to keep increasing your miles every month or so, surely you can't go any higher!!!
Long hills tonight which I quite like. Nutter!
TT such bad news, house flooding is horrific. We came home before xmas after a weekend away to a flooded hall and downstairs loo as the upstairs radiator had burst. Not good. ceiling still needs sorting too, needs replastering ! Hope you get sorted soon, so hard when you're heavily pregnant.
Seriously short of money at the mo since hubbie's old consultancy business closed I now have no salary unless I get some more designs soon. Just applied for 2 jobs as I just can't see us going on holiday this year or buying S's new bedroom furniture unless we can get back to the income we were getting. Looking at campsites in Bordeaux, which look so fabulous so will try my hardest now.
Firstly a HUGE congratulations to RF and Camlo for their nutter accomplishments at the weekend. That ice looked terrifying RF - complete hats off to you for coping with that, and the night with no sleep etc. Often it's the no sleep thing that make or break on endurance events as it really messes with your mind!! That said, I read your race report which was fab and was thinking - hmmmm - might be up for that myself next year ...
Camlo - that is one psycho race, and exactly why I could never do it - the thought of being electrocuted or having to walk through flames (think that sometimes happens) - no way, you are one tough, albeit crazy lady!!
Lotte - awesome mileage, at least you are clocking some miles for me as I am sadly lacking. So how many of your days are double days? I definitely need some top tips on how to stop your body breaking as mine seems to be!!
EF - that's just really tough. Agree with Vixo's comment that you are great a putting down in words what most of us are usually thinking but dare not voice!! Can remember being shocked when I went for scan with S and them checking the stats for DS, had totally forgotten that at 37 I was considered an older mum. Scared the wotsits out of me and hubby as we just hadn't considered it. How far are you from the 20-week scan? That sounds a heinious exam btw, although the next bit doesn't sound to hot either! Good luck ...
and TT with the flooding, sounds horrible and so what you don't need at the moment (()). Hope it all gets sorted for you very soon with no more to follow.
Hoggle is running in sunshine - you lucky soul!
Can't believe Anjelicats and TT are so close now. So, who's next then - isn't there usually someone coming out of the wings to be next on the production line?!!
