    Thank you We weren't trying but wasn't preventing, as with how long it took to have Tamzin we didn't know how long it would take to conceive again. Specialist said to oh that the hormone drugs he'd been prescribed last october/november and stop taking in january, would last around a year. Totally in disbelief on how fast it has happened Oh is adamant for another boy! But that"s a given really.

    Once again I'm not that far gone, only a few weeks . 6 at the most so a long way to go!

    That is super quick DC! How exciting! I guess as you have one of each it isn't any pressure for either sex really is it! I wonder what it's like as a Mum of 3?



    We had Milly's 2 year check yesterday and she's doing really well, I'm so pleased Also, is Clarks the best place to get school shoes from? DP wants to go to Tesco but I just don't think they will last and if she's wearing them all day every day I want to invest in quality. Thoughts?

    Yep, Clarks are the best for school shoes.We always used to take our 2 to the Clarks Village in Somerset to get their shoes.My husbands dad used to work for Clarks many moons ago and he too always had their shoes for school.

    I know it's that fast I'm still in disbelief, went doctors this morning to give an urine sample and results should be back Wednesday. 3 children will be a huge step up! It's been relatively easy having Tamzin, given fact Xander is such a relaxed child. But we've got a feeling Tamzin isn't going to be that way, she'll be just a baby still herself, but we can tell already she's the total opposite of Xander. Wants everything when she asks or hell is released, typical girl haha.

    The sex doesn't matter to me, oh is adamant for another boy. I'd prefer a boy but that's only because I've seen first hand how the older boys get pushed out when there are two younger girls. Generalising I know, but that's my opinion. Either way we won't have to buy much as we've still got all old baby clothes, toy moses baskets etc.

    I'll have to have another C section due to hospital policy. But with Tamzin's being perfect am a lot more relaxed about it.

    Clarks would last a lot longer than Tesco. I used to buy Xander shoes from Clarks until recently. I only stopped was that he doesn't grow that fast and I like him to have a few pairs of shoes. I'll be getting his school shoes from. Clarks.

    Well done Milly!!

    Depends on your budget.... but Clarks is way better than anything Tesco produces.

    Pricing wise, when Clarks has a sale, the differences is marginal at best.

    She should serve a LONG prison sentence...... seems like too many of the underclass take such things lightly these days.

    Thanks for the link

    I read that article in the Manchester Evening News when I was at my Mum's house, it's an absolute disgrace. I don't know how she can justify it by saying she is depressed, isn't going out the last thing people with depression want to do? Those poor children! So sad, and such a bad case for younger mums more negative press, great.


    EH: I agree about Clarks, it's not that it's not our budget, it's just that DH is a total cheapskate when it comes to clothes , I think I have him convinced though, If I didn't I probably would have just got them anyway because good footwear is really important! The main thing is that I am right, quality over price hehe!

    DC: Oh it will be amazing! It does seem a bit of a whirlwind but you'll be fantastic. Probably won't feel real until your first scan will it!

    h82think: Good luck! Very exciting!


    Oh my gosh, 4 weeks today I shall be getting married, SCARY times !

    Clarks is good for shoes yes, though I can't actually afford it for the kids (Lydia used to have Clarks shoes when she was a toddler but that was when DH was working), so we've bought their school shoes from Tesco.

    I've been looking for a thread like this: i'm not a parent but I have an issue I need some help with...

    My cousin's 7, and basically lives with us (me and grandparents) but he turned 7 on Wednesday and went in to school with an extremely cute cardboard cut out birthday hat on. Everyone made fun of him then at lunch break there was a group of boys that pushed him over and started kicking him!?
    1. What.
    2. It was his ****ing birthday!?

    I don't know what to do about it though. Teachers didn't do anything, but I hate the fact anyone would bully him.
    Any advice?

    Isn't it the summer holidays?

    I think they were probably jealous that he got that on his birthday and they didn't so ganged up. Kids are strange. You could teach your cousin to stand up for himself (by telling a teacher what happened) and not care what anyone else thinks! Explain why you think they acted like that so he doesn't think it's him who is wrong. They are the horrible ones/bullies

    I would also definitely have a word with his teacher about it. They will then have to do something about it (and if they don't go to the head) Nobody should experience that on their birthday, poor guy!
