Hi girls!

How are you all?


JEN - How ya feeling? Really hope the MS symptoms subside for you real soon and your mum and dad are taking good care of you. How are you and Adam doing? Must be really hard for you both - I am sure you will come to the right decision soon, will just take time :wink: Maybe when Adam sorted problems at work he can think clearer. Love to you xxx

NIKKI - How are ya chick? Hope your 100% tickety boo. How did the viewing go......Hope you get positive feedback and even an offer!! You sorted where to go if it does sell? Your weekend sounded great, glad weather was good for you x

LIS - Hope your 100% tickety boo too x Any development re Stu's job? I am in similar situ here with Jus. He hates it but worries won't get a similar salary elsewhere as doesnt know how to do anything else. Sure something will come along. Bit of a bummer re your work too but it is hard sorting the finances isn't it espec when have to pay for shildcare. We will be in the same boat and I am dreading it!! Hope Stu's dad is on the mend and you feel stronger emotionally. Cuddle to Mia x

KATE - How are you? Any developments re treatment? Fingers crossed you won't need it and you and DH are enjoying yourselves :wink: I don't envy you having to do sports outside in the rain/cold! Hope you don't get the flu thingy x

I was really unwell last Thur/Fri and managed to pass it onto my mum and nan by Saturday. Unfortunately it meant my nan couldn't come to William's christening. The only great grandchild she has and obviously a day she thought she would never see, I was gutted. The christening was great though (put a couple of pics on pheonixes photobucket). Was a really nice day (not in the weather sense as it poured down!) and everyone enjoyed it.

My in-laws are still here!!!! Supposed to go on Monday night and are STILL waiting for their green card from insurance co......going to ring them again in a mo and find out what the hell is going on there :evil: :evil:

Got appointment thro for bone denisty scan on 20 May so will let you know the outcome.

William is fab. Doing really well although waking up an hour or so earlier at the moment. Trying weaning now. Monday was a great success but gone down hill from there...may be too soon. He weighs over a full stone now and has had his 3rd lot of injections.

Anyway, we go away on Saturday for a week in windy Wales so won't post until we get back. Hope you all ok. Have a good weekend xxxxx

Ahh, Lisa. Bebo buddie!!! LOL!!! just been looking at the pictures of Mia on their, touch my heart!!! So lovely!!! xxxxx
Nah woman's dh didnt come, said he could be bothered to view anywhere til he's sold his own home, and leaving it to the the wife!!!
You dont note interest in england like in soctland, basically you offer a price and then we accept..... or not. She's not going to offer til she's sold though, but once shes sold she will offer.
In england you offer less, sometimes we have tried our luck and offered like £20k less, obviously if she was we wouldnt accept.
I'll keep ya posted anyway....
Love to Kate Jen Julie Gail xxxx

Morning Girlies

Sun still shining!! :D

Pretty quite around here while I have been away. Hope alls well and you are all busy enjoying the sunshine :wink:

Well, we had a lovely week. Picked a good one for the weather and we really enjoyed it. Took William to the beach and to see the farm animals where we stayed. Had a bit of a restless time at night though :roll: . Didn't get much sleep at all as William just didn't settle and he has started teething.

Thought we would have a better night on Saturday when back home and it was the worst yet and last night not much better so I am zonked!!! No sign of any peg yet either!! He is weaning though and liking his porridge.

As for me I am looking to forward to a girle night out in Manchester Saturday night. Not sure what to wear as need to start a diet now. It is ridiculous the amount of weight I have put on since having William so need to get to Weight Watchers and quick!

Off to baby massage in a bit so must dash - take care xxxx

We were away the weekend in moto and we went to a place that Nicki and Mark 1st stayed in Scotland called Portmahomack.

We lazed read books and BBQed while Broc and adam also weent long walks and fishing x x Broc couldnet stay out of the water. My MS is getting better still in a lot of pain and very tired but physion is helping now. Just gotta take it slowly and we wil be ok to go away on hols at the beginning of July x x x DH is still ok at work but has been looking for another job. unfortunatly only one suitable was with a large pay drop which we are not willing to do. hope he ses something soon that fits the bill.

Oh nicki honey i am sad you are not posting any more, this thread and site will not be the same but I understand totally how you must feel. You have been so brave posting here and continuing to support everyone but you must look after yourself. Have replied to you on bebo. And I am going to get back on msn so would love to chat to you there. Take care hun and big hugs & love to you xxx

Jen lovely to hear from you, glad your health is improving again, your week away sounded absolutely bliss! Hope Ad can find something soon that fits. Is he looking in same area or are you thinking of moving nearer to Glasgow again? How's your work? Hope you are also healing emotionally hun, thinking of you xxx

Julie - that's not so good about William. Mia has been teething for what seems like an age - red cheeks and drooling all the time but no sign of any pearlies yet! I hope it settles soon and you get more sleep. Have you tried anything for it? How are you both enjoying the massage?

Kate, Gail & Katie - big hello's! What have you busy girlies been up to??

Mia is now a offical water babe having been to her first "underwater" swimming class and did an underwater swim! Didn't seem bothered by it at all.! She is still loving her food and milk (Jen she's nearly 21lbs and in 9-12 month clothes!) :D

My work, after agreeing my new hrs on my return in July, are now trying to get me to change. Chancers! Not happy so have been speaking to HR dept and think having to arrange meeting with boss and HR to discuss. Dh also thinking of possible career change into Food Safety / environmental health so looking into re training but would move back to west coast first so lots to think about. Estate agent round today too valuing house. Find out tomorrow what its worth!

My friend also not been well - possible diagnosis of MS, will find out friday if it is or not so was thro seeing her sunday. She has wee baby same age as Mia so was offering a hand. Well off to bed now. My mum coming 2mro til friday then my dad coming for the wkend so will post again eary next week.

Love to all xxxx

Nikki - You will be missed on here hun but understand and will stay in touch via facebook text. Wishing you love, luck and happiness for your future xxxx

Lis - Had another look on photobucket. Mia is gorgeous. How they grow!! I am hoping William wakes up with 28 teeth tomorrow! I use Nelsons Teetha Granules. Life Saver!!! Think he is going backward generally as not 100% it is always teething that wakes him...started weaning so can't wait til I can give him 2 pints of porridge! Enjoy time with parents and sock it to'em at work!! Hope everything gets sorted and friend okay.

Jen - Sounds like you had lovely break - just what you both needed. It sucks re Adam's job bit something will turn up. Hope sooner rather than later x

Love to Gail and Kate x

I have my bone scan next Tuesday. Let you know how I get on. Chiow for now x

Hi Girls,

Got a spare 5mins so I thought it was about time I posted!!

Nickie - totally understand what you're saying. Think it will help you to have a break and we will still catch up via facebook and meet up every so often. Hope you are still ok for the 27th?..looking forward to seein you again!

Julie - hope the bone scan goes ok. How is William - any sign of any teeth yet? Sounds like you just get used to having a proper nights sleep and before you know it they are teething and keeping you awake again!! It must be all worth while tho

Lisa - your work sound like they are tryin to take the p**s! Hopefully it will all get sorted soon and that DH career change takes off. You really are oing to be busy over the next few mths, especially with the move - any decisions on exactly where you want to go?

Jen - great to here that the MS is getting better. Your trip sounds lovely, I'm really lookin forward to coming up to Scotland at xmas - never been before so it should be lovely. Just lookin forward to relaxing!

Hi to Gail and Lucy if you're out there - hope things are all godd with you guys?

As for me I've started the process for tmt in Sweden, so the ball is rolling so to speak! They work it backwards from the date for EC, so my EC date is the 20th August with ET either 3 or 5 days later. I will have all the relevant tests done on the 7th June and start stimming on the 7th August. I'm kind of hoping that the homeopathic medicine that I am taking will have an effect and I won't need tmt! Keep your fingers crossed!

Apart from that not much is happening, half term in just over a week which I can't wait for. I have a hen weekend that week as well and we're doing a murder mystery night which should be a good laugh.

Anyway will keep you all posted about tmt - 7th time lucky girls!!

Just popped on to see whats happening and read Nickies post, I completely understand why you wont be posting on here anymore and just wanted to send you a big hug and hope everything works out for you.

Hi to everyone else, I will try and catch up with everyone in the week.

Just got back from a great week in Weymouth. Katie now seems to have a bug which is really not very nice for any of us!! she has been on bread and water all day today!

Lisa, Mia has overtaken Katies weight she is only 18lbs!! Every baby I know has overtaken Katies weight, she is just so active that she burns off everything she eats.

catch you in the week
