Blimey Ikkle that is a quick turnaround for surgery!! Always tricky when you have logistics of family esp at Christmas
Well I have FINALLY started to get off my butt and get organised for this baby! Have inherited a set of drawers from a friend so have somewhere to put clothes and am now in the washing and sorting process. Lent a lot of clothes to my sister and her first was a bad reflux baby so a lot of them are pretty ruined - its those horrible yellow stains that don't show up until later so she would be a bit mortified I think if she saw the state some of the stuff has come back in!! Luckily I have a lot of hand me downs this time around. Moses basket also borrowed and carseat out and cleaned so if nothing else gets done at least we'd manage for the first wee while.
Had planned a lie-in and relaxing morning yesterday while hubby spent time with M but she was obviously under the weather and in a nightmare mood so we all just suffered through it all day - thank god she's not like that often! Today she asked if they could go to the walk they had planned for yesterday so off they went at about 7.30 and I got my lie-in - yay! Feeling much better as a result. Now just need the rain to stay away so I can get some outside jobs done and washing dried!
TT I hope you get your referral soon. I've had lots of treatment for bad smear results so know how stressful it is. Got sent a letter after a LETZ saying they wanted me to come in to discuss my results - freaked out totally but when I phoned them they said oh its just standard procedure all is fine - I complained and they have since changed the wording of the letter so as not to insight completely unnecessary panic in other women.
EF well done on the presentation, glad you have that ticked off your list!
M came in and asked how Father Christmas would get into our house yesterday - first real discussions about Christmas and I am EXCITED!! Can't wait to do Christmas with a littlie who 'gets' it now! She is going to love all of it and it will be a really nice distraction from everything baby that will be going on as well!
Hope EF's presentation went well in London and not too many nightmares were caused by that freaky painting on FB!!
How long is your sister still with you Caro? STink that you have the bonus of someone doing the cooking and you can't even enjoy it though!
I am feeling a bit broken today from overdoing things yesterday. Flat out with work etc then took M for a bike ride along the coastal path in between daycare and birthday party yesterday but didn't agree on how far she could go before stopping and waiting - nearly had to flag down a passing cyclist to go after her!! SO ended up walking much further/faster than I prob should! Birthday party was fun and M so knackered that when we got home at 6 she had a bath and bed with no dinner and no fuss!! Cold still sticking around - coughing constantly is not compatible with being 37 weeks pregnant my poor pelvic floor is clearly useless!! ALright after that TMI I best go and get some work done!!
Snip is reversible - I had a colleague who had exactly same scenario and went on 2 have 2 girls with his second wife. Not cheap though! Hubby can get the snip after this one - we are done I think.
WOnderful for your colleague EF. I was just wrapping a very belated present from my friends new baby (the one who lost her son at 5 months after a liver transplant). Its been a very emotional time for them but they are very happy.
Am feeling pointlessly stressed about something ridiculous!! We have got M a trampoline for christmas (birthday ad christmas combined from several relatives). Hubby was adament we needed a 14 ft one - I am worried we are not going to have any garden left!! Pointless worrying because can't change it now and we won't live here for ever but I just don't think he realises how big its going to be - I keep looking at the space and picturing it in my head!! First world problem right?!!
PG M is 3 and 5 months. I think she'll be fine but suspect we'll have some interesting behaviour to contend with at the same time. Luckily we have Christmas not long after so she has something exciting to look forward to and something we can focus on together thats not all about the baby.
