laughing2.gif

I hope everyone's going well. I am getting some nice little taps and wriggles finally which is great. I am really popping out now, everyone is commenting on it. Loving having a round belly - I am trying to really enjoy it as it will be the last time.

Saw the endo today and thyroid levels are spot on so that's good. original.gif Hope everyone is well!

I just stack my nappies on the change table shelf but then I only have a supply of 24 in size small but with the medium size I have about 50 so I store them all made up in a cane basket beside the change table.

Am having such a bad week, my one year old puppy might have a mass cell tumour, she had surgery Monday to remove it and I get the biopsy results tomorrow. Poor thing has a huge cut across her throat where the lump was. I just keep crying when I look at her.

Got spoilt rotten for my birthday yesterday which was lovely especially as I was able to share it with hubby and the kids.  Also had my antenatal appointment. Bubs is doing well and I will be getting a sizing scan at 36 Weeks so we can discuss an induction etc if necessary.

Hope everyone is going well.

When do you get the results from the biopsy TwilightAngel?

Kay are you on the FB group?

H Ladies and bumps! Im from the other August DIG but its so very quiet over there... Can I join in here too?? I just really want to chat. My DIG with DD was so chatty and  so was my April DIG for my m/c and I miss them!!

So to introduce myself (hope no one minds!).
Hi, I'm White-Lily, 26 and located in Perth. Bub #2 due 24th August. DD is just turned 3 and is very excited!! we are having a surprise this time but still I'm hanging out for the morph scan just to make sure baby is still ok in there! I'm a touch paranoid for no good reason!!

Starting to feel tiny kicks. Have been feeling very sporadic flutters for a few weeks but not enough to convince me it really is baby IYKWIM? Waiting to get booted on a daily basis!
I have popped out and have been looking pregnant for a few weeks but somehow no one at work has realised! I will get around to telling them all soon I suppose  ph34r.gif Most of the family know as of last week so its all actually real now - finally at almost 17 weeks  blush.gif

QUOTE
ppl using mcn how are you planning on storing them?
I have all mine in a nappy stacker, well two actually. DD's/large ones are hanging in her wardrobe and bubs are hanging off the cot but will be moved to hang off the change table or nursery door (small room)

Happy birthday for yesterday twilightangel. Hope your puppy is going to be ok.

Again I really hope no one minds me butting in but I figure we will all be in the same parents group soon enough and the other thread is so slow I think I heard my own echo in there...

#84 Kay1

Posted 14 March 2012 - 06:18 PM

Welcome White-Lily. Its very quiet in here too so the more the merrier! That's great that you are feeling little kicks. I am 18.5 weeks and only just started getting them in the last week or so. I was starting to worry a bit. I can't believe people at work haven't noticed yet! I am massive, but I think its a 3rd baby thing LOL. Everyone is commenting on how I've 'popped out' etc. It is all belly though, looks like I've swallowed a small beach ball LOL.

Twilightangel - Oh your poor pup. I hope the results tomorrow are good. Glad you had a good scan. original.gif

Megs - Nah I'm not in the FB group. I'm a bit funny sharing my FB with people I don't "know" IYKWIM? Plus I spend too much time on there anyway LOL.

MCN - I used to keep them in some baskets on the change table shelf. I did use a nappy stacker when we had DS2 as his bassinet was in our room and the change table was in another room. I don't know if I"ll use MCN this time....I have sold most of mine.


#85 White-Lily

Posted 16 March 2012 - 06:02 PM

Thanks for the welcome Kay original.gif Yeah I think they are too involved in their own lives or they don't want to say anything in case they upset me or something. In any case I'm happy I'm not being badgered about maternity leave and when I will come back, etc.

Love the beach ball comment. That's pretty much how I look too (and feel occasionally!) I was the same with DD original.gif I'm going to take a picture tonight so I might post it next week if I remember.

#86 Lumikki

Posted 17 March 2012 - 02:08 PM

Maybe it's time to merge the two groups back into one?

#87 Kay1

Not a bad idea La Neige.

#88 twilightangel

Posted 18 March 2012 - 07:12 AM

Just thought I would pop in and say thanks for all the well wishes towards my puppy. The vet said we were very lucky and caught it early as it was benign. I am so happy original.gif

Hope everyone is well.
