Hi all

Fab idea. Me and Karen were chattig about it the other day but unsure what to call it LOL I am thrilled that you did it Laura, we were all ready to move on, don't you think.

Well no more babies for me. I am off to see a gynocologist in a few weeks. I love my boys and would love more but my body wouldn't take it and I couldn't face going through another 10 month pregnancy + I am studying hard to become a PROFFESIONAL Medium so I have bitten the bullet and made the appointment.

I am ready to move on with my life!

I am just getting the uniforms ready for school tomorrow and i have new bedding for the boys beds so I am washing them today too.

I have arranged to go to my friends house in the morning after dropping George off for a glass of wine and a cry! He has gone from being thrilled to be going to school this am, to tears and wanting to stay home with Mammy! Bless him.

Laura Hows Jack?

Heeeeeeeey!!!! hi guys!!! brill new thread! P - what are you like!!! pissed and had none!! LOL well i have, must admit over the last few days i have had quite a few, got one of my best friends christening cakes to do for next weekend, and then i can throw myself into helping with the concreating etc, Joy good to hear from you, hows it going! Well i cant say i know what its like with the school thing, all of mine are home-schooled, its kinda nice sometimes and a pain in the arse at others!!! A friend of ours is coming to stay from the 8th sept for the week with her partner, he's going to be helping with the chicken barn and then fliss will be staying down here with the kids whilst i chuck myself into the work too, it should work out quite well as she used to be a teacher and she also plays lots of instruments and is bringing some stuff with her for the stay (i have told her where we keep the paracetamol!!! LOL) and have worked out some lessons for her to do with the guys while im working with the men. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACK FOR TOMORROW!!!  I wish that nature would bloody hurry up and sort out my body, im getting really bad cramps (like mild contractions) but then nothing is happening, i keep expecting to find the rest of things (if you know what i mean!) I mean i know my hormones where low, but surely i should still get a period as the lining of my womb was quite thick, and thats what you shed with your period no???? i'm confused!!! if the baby has already gone then why no bleed????????????? AAARRRRGGH! sorry, feeling sorry for myself and too much wine on board!  funny really, you'd think i'd be used to it by now! You know the times you could just sit and talk bollocks with good mates???? well this is one of them ...............................................

Hi all

Firstly, Karen it can take weeks for your body to expel anything that might be there, I had to ask for medical management in the end as I felt my life was on hold waitng for this horrible thing to happen, they gave me a tablet on the Saturday to soften my cervix and reduce the preg hormone levels then I was supposed to go back on the Monday for the pessaries but couldnt get childcare so never got them but I miscarried on the Tues anyway. Maybe if its taking to long you could ask your doc for some help ?

P, hope you are ok hun, you mustve got a fright !! Not sure about copying the entire thread, I just copy whatever messages I want to keep into a Word document and save the dates on them, Ill print them off and shove them in with my pregnancy and birth keepsakes.x

Nikki, Ill sort that out for you no probs if you just let me know what you want, Im going up there next week so will let you know what they have and you can pick whatever youre looking for, xxx

Hi Laura and Joy, how are you both ? Joy its nice to have you back hun, hope youre feeling lots better, x

Just had my hair all cut, looks nice and tidy now and feels much better with all that weight off too. Was lovely to spend time with my sis, she flies out to Salou on Thurs so shes excited about that.

Had a nice day with Lily, went to B&Q for paint for the upstairs bathroom and then off to Asda. Got her some new PJs and vests and some nice slides for her hair which she actually let me put in without her yanking them back off, lol. 

Have decided to swap bedrooms with Lily and the boys as she has a massive big room to herself whilst the boys are sharing a tiny box room and its not fair, lot of upheaval but will be worth it in the end !! 

Right Im off or a munch then off to bed, Good luck all the little ones going back to school tomorrow, God it seems like yesterday I was saying that on here this time last year !!!!

Night, xxxxxxxxxxx 

03/09/2008 at 09:25

Morning all

How are we all this am ? I  had a lovely sleep even though Id watched a creepy film before bed, got up at 6.30am bright and breezy !!

Its not raining here yet (hurrah !) so got loads of washing to get out on the line. It poured down yesterday afternoon after Id gone out so all my washing got soaked, story of my life, lol.

Nikki, heres the website for the ACE, its 24ace.co.uk, request a catalogue first then place your order using quick shop as its easier to do than browse the site, its quite confusing as all the prices are different from the catalogue. Ive just ordered some wee bits n bobs for Xmas to get me started.

Hoping to get my bathroom painted today, we shall see how Lily is first as Ill probably start it then she will kick off and I wont get it finished, lol.

P, Im with you on the no more babies !! Im going to see the doc as soon as my period ends and get the ball rolling, I need a D&C anyway so may as well get it all done in one hit !! Whilst saying that I went all gooey when I saw all the wee boys winter stuff in Asda yesterday, lol.

Well must go and get my shower, catch up later girls, xxxx 

03/09/2008 at 10:05
