Oldies - anyone still out there?

Postby Dee » Tue Oct 19, 2004 8:26 pm

Hey - just logged on for the 1st time in a while and found this new board. Great idea as I have been wondering how all of the oldies have been getting on with their little ones. How is it going for you all? How are all of your little ones?

Max is 23 mths now so just organising a party for his 2nd birthday. I can't believe that he is almost 2 and I still can't believe how lucky we have been. Max is just full of energy. Keeping us very busy but great great fun. I can't imagine life without him. He is a really happy boy, which is brilliant.

I still keep in touch with Miriam and she and Joseph are doing really well.

We might be jumping on the old IVF bandwagon again soon. I was actually lucky enough to have a miracle natural pregnancy at the start of 2004 (having tried for 4.5 yrs before with no success and unexplained infetility), but unfortunately it ended in a m/c. We've just moved house and are in a state of chaos at the moment, but if nothing has happened by the New Yr, we will probably give it another go. The prospect of going down that road again doesn't appeal to me, but I really don't want Max to be an only child, so we would do it again for that reason.

It would be great to hear from you if any of you are still logging on. Hopefully this message board won't be so busy, so the thread won't be lost too quickly. If you are like me, the opportunities to log on are few and far between these days.

I still think of everyone a lot and remember those days when this site was my life-line - and the mad chats!

S'Later!
Love
Dee xxx.

Hi Dee,

I don't get on to the site much now but it is great to hear how everyone is getting on. Rebecca and Ross are now almost 2 and a half and I am still the happiest mummy around....it is a walking talking toddler fest every day...and I wouldn't have it any other way.

It feels like so long ago that they were babies let alone when I was pg. Great idea for a new board and look forward to catching up with some oldies but goldies!!!
Take care
Nicky

Hi Dee, Nicky, Beck etc....

I remember all the oldies, this site was truly a godsend when going through tmt, who can forget Tee ? and the mad chats !!!! I remember someone being afraid of Fish !! (can't remember who it was)

Ronnie is now 21 months old (worked on my 5th attempt) and a little darling don't now where I would be without him...I have 5 frosties left so may thaw them early next year.

I can't get on here as often as I like (limited access at work and Pc at home is knackered) but it would be lovely to catch up and I will try and get on more often.

Take Care.

I had trouble getting onto the site these last few months so it's good to see some of the oldies.

Katie Louise is now 8 weeks old, she came into the world 25th August 2004 at 2.04am and weighed 7lb 61/2oz. Motherhood is so good and I still can't believe she belongs to us.

I keep in touch with JD and Daniel will be two on 7th December. We speak alot but have yet to meet up face to face and it's only been four years since we logged on lol.

Love to you all and your little ones.

Hi Lisa,

I'm so thrilled to hear your news. Congratulations on the safe arrival of Katie Louise, I can imagine how besotted you must be.

Dan was one last month and is great fun now that he's walking and dancing :lol: , but I do still kind of miss those tiny baby days that you're at now.

I hope you enjoy every minute of it, you waited long enough and so deserve your precious bundle.

Wishing you all well.

Beck..Sorry to hear about the fet, I still feel very lucky every day when I look at mine. We have a dog (Bob) and Amelia loves his toys more than hers, so I have to ban them from the lounge after I found her sucking his bone toy?!?!? Well I hear germs are good for kids.

What a great idea for a night away, I am up for that!! We will have to pitch it to Sarah.

Chat soon,
