Gail, no problem..... You enjoy Katie.. xx :lol:

Best of luck with christening today, hope all goes well, have you got her a pretty gown? or do have a family gown passed down??

Where did u go on hols? Was pheonixes holiday season huh??? hope u had nice time and good weather.....


Kate, r u thinking of going to scotland still??
We did lots of walking, and the scenery up there is fantastic. We were on coast in a little fishing village, very quaint.... :)
Visited glen livet, more for mark than me! but still enjoyed it, and did sample the whisky!
Went to Aberdeen, which we found to be much the same as any city in the uk.... the same old shops, M&s, next, etc.... you know what i mean, so didnt really stay there that long, we visited some castles and walked some more...... it was so chilled up there, and the stress totally went.... however know it'll be back 2moro when i get to work

Marks now got full blown cold, ive decided to get up at 7 just so i can get into the swing of getting up early again, ready for nxt wk.....

Think we r going to Cambridge for my birthday, but guess that depends on mark and hows he's feeling. I really want to go punting, along the river there, then we plan to have a meal out and mark said parhaps he'd book and pay for a massage for me... :D


Anyway, im off now, to check my statement online, see the damage frm the hols.......
Have a great sunday all xxx

Hi Girlies

I only have 5 mins so I'm sorry no personals on this one. Thanks for all the well wishes.

Quik update - waters broke 4 am thurs 20th sept and continued to do so all day thur and fri. As labour didn't start after this was induced on the Saturday 1pm. At 9 am on sunday morning, after tens, gas & air, morphine, one failed epidural fiollowed by a second successful one, wasn't even 3cm dilated!! so had to have c section. Apparently Mia's head ina funny position in my pelvis so was never going to progress with the labour naturally. Got home from hosp on Wednesday.

Mia is gorgeous and her Daddy is totally smitten with her. We have been very emotional (in a good way) as we truly can't believe she is here and that she is ours. I am going now to try and post photos on photo bucket (or 2mro if I run out of time)

Will catch up with you all as soon as I can.

Love to all xxx

Nicki you are right it was definitely holiday season!! We went to the Isle of Wight, I lived there for 19 years so took Katie over to show her off. Katie wore the dress I wore when I was christened (rather a long time ago!) She was absolutely fantastic and didn’t cry once. It must have been great meeting up with jen, glad you had a great holiday shame Marks not well now, at least it didn’t spoil the holiday.

Julie glad everything is ok with baby, its good to get to see the labour ward but not good to hear the noises! Hope you had a great holiday.

Kate hope you are feeling a lot better now and have a bit more energy, sending a big hug your way

Jen how are you feeling? It must be getting so close to ET now. I definitely think it would be great to all meet up, bumps and babes.

Lisa your birth was very similar to mine, I only got to 4 cm as Katie was stuck on my pelvic bone. I still can’t believe that Katie is here and she is now 6 months old! The photo’s are gorgeous, Mia has so much hair much more than Katie has now. Try and get as much rest as you can, ha ha! You need to let your body heal after the C section.

We had a lovely week away and then Christening on Sunday, so busy busy busy at the moment. Katie was a little angel all through the church service and at the party afterwards. She is trying so hard to crawl now and don’t think it will be long before she manages it. I have put a few more photos on photo bucket

Hi Girls

Back at work today :roll: . Only 11 weeks til I finish and on official count down!!!!!!


Nikki - Happy Birthday for tomorrow! Hope you get lots of treats and nice pressies. Hope Mark is better and you get the massage. ( I am sorry for marrying Mark off to Lisa!! :? . ) Sounds like you had a good time in Scotland, especially meeting up with Jen & co.

Gail - Had a look at the pics. Katie looks as adorable as ever. Glad the christening went well. Hope she got lots of nice things!!! I didn't realise you were away....glad you enjoyed it. OMG!!! When Katie crawls she will keep you on the move! Keep us updated.

Jen - OMG - what you gonna do hun without your motorhome?! 8 weeks is a long time - hope those idiots pay!!!!!!! Should be locked up. I hope you hear some news real soon on your treatment. Surely shouldn't be too much longer? Hope not xx Sounds like you enjoyed meeting with Nikki and Mark and that you enjoyed Aviemore too...glad Broc behaving!! take advantage of your new bed as much as you can and take care.

Lisa - Well done you (again!). Realise you will be super super busy but drop in with updates when you can. How is she settling now you are home? bet you have floods of visitors! Would be interested to know why the 1st epidural didn't work....take care and enjoy every single second with your new family xx

Kate - How are you feeling this week? Hope you feel much better. sounds like you have been throught the mill good and proper. Has the bleeding stopped yet? Shame about Dubai. Hope you get something else sorted if need be - the break will do you good. Half term!! Already!!! Seems like they have only been back 5 minutes. Can't believe we are in October....Hope you and DH are enjoying your new jobs too

Judy - Any progress with IUI? Hope you are ok and things going according to plan

Lucy - Where are you hun? Hope all is well with you. Drop us an update x

As for me Wales was good. My nan really enjoyed it (waited on hand and foot so no wonder!!) and that was my aim so it was worth the extra work. We went all over...Tenby, Cardigan, Aberporth, Aberyswyth and a few beachy places although the weather wasn't up to much.

I am much better now. The anti biotics gave me thrush tho and my god it was like a severe case of nappy rash but it has cleared up now, thankfully! I will put a "bump" pic on photobucket during the course of this week. Look huge!!!! Justin felt "him" kick for the first time on Saturday. Can actually see my stomach move now too and we could watch it for hours! and (touch wood) the heart burn has stopped!

Catch ya all soon xxxxx

Hi everyone!

Haven't been here for a few days, seems like lots are happening.

First of all, congratulations Lisa! :D :D Can't imagine how happy you and husband must feel now. Is there a link you posted with pictures?

Nicki, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! So Oct 1st is the day? Sounds like you and Jen had a great time meeting each other. One of these days, if anyone is visiting the U.S. southwest, plesae let me know. Maybe we can meet too! It's soo cool to have friends the other side of the globe! 8)

Kate, hope you are feeling better. Just like Dubai, we have a lot of sun here in Phoenix! :wink: And the weather is getting beatiful now.

Julie, Jen, how are you? xx

As for me, I haven't started my AF yet. Probably next week. We thought we might not be able to do it this cycle, as DH was going to the Netherland for work. Fortunately that's been delayed. Still, I'm so stressed over his work schedule. He could have last minute business trips, what if it's when we do egg-donor cycle? I'm just going to have to relax and cross the bridge when I come to it...We're going to Las Vegas for a couple of days next week, to meet up a high school friend who I haven't seen for 20 years! Boy, do I feel old! :)

Judy
