Hi Bree, lovely to read that cora is doing well Its also great to read that you miss being pregnant. Im just eight weeks along now and loving it but you read so much horror that its lovely to see someone who really enjoyed it. Best of luck with babs and keep in touch. l

Hi Bree I was thinking about getting an aupair.. went with a childminder in the end but have some really good suggestions if you want to PM me. Cora sounds like a wee dote and she is definately thriving.. Imagine she is 8 weeks already, the time flies.. Elizabeth was 18 weeks old yesterday, I am going back to work on Monday (just about got my 22 weeks) but have every Friday off from now until the forseeable future.. Thank goodness!! Summer Daisy

Hello text buddy!!! I fell off the radar there for a while too, great to see us both back -even if only for a quick hello. Cora is doing great, I though my one was a monkey at 11.3lb at her 6 week check!! Zoe is going 10:30 to about 6 now but will go longer if she takes a dream feed about midnight. Isn't it nice to have some sleep again? I have to agree with you, I enjoyed being pregnant for most of it and I do miss some things. I miss feeling so healthy (no colds, sinus etc), sparkly eyes, great skin and nails, rubbing my bump, feeling baby kick and wearing big knickers :o0 Feel obliged now to go back to the old sexy ones and they aren't half as comfy but make me feel more human. (!!) Has Cora found her voice? Zoe thinks she is hilarious and laughs like a train at herself. Her favourite 'word' is 'agoo.' Everything is agoo, accompanied by a smile that makes you forget the previous hour's whinging instantly. Ah motherhood..the joys. Am off to text you now, have a good weekend pet xx

thanks girls : ) any suggestions re.childcare would be greatly appreciated Summer.. lal...congrats on the pregnancy..you will love it ( tho its no walk in the park either but the kicks are sooo worth the sore legs etc ) & when your baby is finally born you wont be able to believe it fit in you!!! Ducky brilliant to hear Zoe is doing so great.. i checked your pic & she is sooo adorable ! My mam fell in love with her when i showed her the pic : ) Cora really only uses her voice to whinge ( she loovves doin that hehe) but has began making little gur sounds when giving us big smiles..she also has began to look chinese when she smiles ( my brother thinks i visited the chinese too much during the pregnancy or else Jason Grimshaw is the daddy!! big weirdo ) .. il pop some new pics of her up ( www.kodakgallery.com email: [email protected] & password: wedding ) thanks for your wishes Double... how are u???????

Hi Bree, good to hear from you!! Just had a look at your photos and they are lovely and so cute. Also love ones of Jack O'Shea ha ha Am hitting the last 10 weeks now and all going well tg. Have had a relatively easy pregnancy so far apart from migraines but they are manageable. Must head off shopping soon and pack my hospital bag and one for babs.
