    Thanks everyone for the well wishes.....

    Quite different this time round....namely got no chance to escape unlike the first time round when I was based overseas.

    Feel rather groggy all day long, could hardly sleep at night. Little fella wakes up like a Swiss clockwork every 2 hours and it takes me 2 hours to fall asleep.

    School for DD starts on the 8th, still not bought her uniforms will do it on Monday

    This is not my month, but to be honest I would have been pretty damn lucky to fall pregnant the first month of trying.
    Just take it easy and don't stress yourself over on this.

    I win the award for the worst mother award, I'm missing Bella's first day at school (Monday) because I'll be at my first day at uni, gutted
    You're not

    Neither of my parents were ever there for my first days at school.... LOL, they had the maid or nanny take me to school as they were too busy due to work related reasons. I never really thought about it as amiss really.

    As for feeling bad about it, we all have to do things we have to do, sometimes I wish I didn't have my job so I could spend more time with my family but the reality of it is I do need the job so it means I have to make some of the sacrifices that the job calls for.

    Treasure the moments when they are still happy to go =P
    My sister just shared a link with me: a full 3 years after my high school told me I was a complete idiot for trying to apply to Oxford and vouching that they would never ever help me with that ridiculous process (I am not exaggerating)... they now advertise a special meeting for students who want to apply to Oxford. What the hell is wrong with some people.

    Hi all Just a quick question- do you think this would be a good present for a 1st birthday?

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/LeapFrog-Spi...5427925&sr=1-3

    Other suggestions would also be appreciated (looking to spend less than £15)

    Hope all mums/dads/babies/bumps are well
    yeh that looks like a good present

    First day of school today for DD, I didn't take her as my parents wanted to do so, maybe they want to make up for the time they didn't send me for 1st days at school LOL.

    DS is doing fine as is DW.

    What is wrong with that woman in the article? Am surprised social services hasn't come after her and to think she would go public on such things..... guess Britain isn't the only place with messed up people after all.

    Hele: Hello and glad to hear you have a very lovely and supportive boyfriend. You can opt to get onto council housing or private and go for housing benefit whilst your waiting to start, and other benefits, and if you move you can apply for full support from SF which gives a full/max loans and grants/bursaries. Also apply for an overdraft from student bank to. Most tutors are very supportive. I know the benefits/housing as my friend had her daughter inbetween 2nd and 3rd yr. You can opt for part time degree at university which spread out your degree easier takes longer but you could go full time after a year most take up to 5-8years to do part time which is more then enough time to have LO in daycare.

    Clareramos: Theme parks/water parks/zoo trips/go to a holiday park/camp and go and visit places surrounding the area. South area is lovely and has plently of stuff to do.

    I love sapphire's MEGA catch-ups lol x

    eeeeek I'm so excited! Kids are going to school tomorrow, and then after that we're going straight to Taybarns for some grub, and then straight to the Travelodge at Manchester Airport for the night. Then we fly out at 8am Tuesday morning (so have to be at the airport for 6am...not so fun to tackle with sleepy kids!).
    Salou here we come! woooo!

    God I'm in need of a holiday so frigging badly!!

    Ahh that's good to hear! 11th March doesn't sound that far away either, time goes so fast.

    My friend whom I was bridesmaid for is nearly due with her second little girly.. Was wondering if any of you could help? She's obviously got lots of stuff from her first time round and when I asked her what she wanted for her babyshower she said "I dont know".
    Any ideas on what I could buy?

    What do you all think of this?
    It seems a bit radical, surely there should be more research into where the late abortions are taking place? Especially if you can only find out the sex at the 20 week scan and then it takes place after that. I thought you needed special permission for terminations after a certain number of weeks.

    If it only really happens in former soviet states then why not sort it there instead of an EU wide ruling? I don't think it will come in to force, seems too backwards.

    Have you thought about something personalised to that baby? Personalised taggie or comforter? I loved personalised things for the second, then it's just for them!


    PMP: Have a great holiday!

    HRH: Glad to hear you're doing well.

    Or what about a giftcard for Mothercare or something. that way she can choose what she uses it for.
