Life is crazy! The kids are 7mo tomorrow. I feel like someone told me once that it gets easier? FALSE. They are all over the place. Addie is crawling, both are sitting up, James learned to roll from back to front and then forgets how to roll back over and gets stuck and cries :doh: and Addie just runs him over! I can't turn my back for a moment or she's gone! I'm still exclusively pumping... Oy. Mama I completely get whey you got surgery!!! Bf is so hard on the boobies!

Achef - hope you're soaking up the Vegas atmosphere? I stayed once at the Venetian and I loved it! Best part for me was the shopping, with only 6% sales tax at the time. It was like Xmas :rofl: It's 20% in the UK :roll: How are you feeling?

Expect - 2 days post and counting! Are you still doing acupuncture? I wanted to ask, where abouts in France are you from? I hope none of your F&F have been affected by the recent attacks :cry:

Reapage - I can just imagine the antics in your house. It's hard work but enjoyable too! It only gets better when they go to kindergarten and you can finally put your feet up for 5 min and enjoy a cuppa whilst it's still hot :rofl:

Sunshine - welcome to motherhood, they mean it when they say your life changes forever! I remember the early days so well. Try to sleep when baby sleeps.

A great idea about Facebook.... For those who would like to connect and continue our friendship, please send a PM to the group I created. I wouldn't like to post on here but happy to connect privately.

There was a terror attack in Munich last night, it's only an hour away from us. Single gunman shot dead 9 people and seriously injured 16 in a shopping mall. What a scary world we're living in.

Hope everyone is doing well! Taking Mia to her first theatre show later this afternoon :D

Hey ladies!!!

Mama, thanks for starting the new thread. You would think we'd be VIP's from the last one instead of them shutting it down.

I'm doing great. We did a lot in Vegas and I was getting a bit annoyed with DH because he seems to be oblivious to the fact that I'm pregnant and now get a little more tired than usual, and physically uncomfortable. Also, my lower back is a killer after walking for a while. Breast are definitely starting to hurt more and more and the gas pain is crazy. Every little ache and pain has me nervous a bit. My cervix aches every so often as if my period is trying to show up. Is this normal?

Reapage, nice to hear from you. Glad the twins are doing well, and getting big. My u/s is this coming Thursday.....praying all is well.

Sunshine, thanks hon.

Expect, how are yiu feeling?

Ladies get your magnifiers because I'm either completely delusional or I'm getting the beginning of a BFP... Thoughts?
