    There is being obsessed about weddings and being really obsessed about weddings. So obsessed that you manage to completely miss all the signs of anything else going on in life. Like missing periods and ouchy boobs and somewhat irrational mood swings (one minute loving everyone the next too nervous to leave the house), with no good reason. Add in being REALLY annoyed that the wedding diet seems to result only in putting on weight and an extreme dose of lethargy and most people would have sussed out that something wasn't quite normal. Me? I went to the doctor in a right state with kidney ache, bloating and not understanding why the hell my already ample bosom has decided to turn into porn star sized jugs (believe me, this is NOT a good thing when you have to carry them round all day).

    After a referral to the hospital I had antibiotics and a scan only instead of finding anything nasty you can guess the rest :eek:

    Wedding now back to next years original date!

    Thank you :eek:

    I am due sometime between Oct and Nov. Scan on 21 April should find out a better date. I AM SO OLD. 37. I'll be the oldest mother in the playground. I've developed gestational diabetes already which sucks as I need to inject insulin and hate it. Other than that all is well.

    We're moving to be near Ben's parents and I have 5 weeks to entirely pack or ebay my house. Oh for the energy to get on top of it all. I really, truly have no idea where to start. Going back to bed seems like a good option! Not very productive though. I don't drive so everything is so difficult to do from here. I have ordered some boxes online - sounds daft but with no car it's impossible to get any and I don't know many people as we'd only recently moved here! I tried freecycle but no luck.

    Down to the serious busioness of names - I was thinking Argonaught, Oreo or Munsterfeifel? Just to be exotic like...

    Congrats hun! hope the move goes well, you found any of those house's for 50p rent? we could do with one - at the moment our only option is to both move back with our parents as we can only just (not really) afford to pay the bills here and thoughts of going anywhere to do anything not worth having as we can't afford it! Seems like a step backwards but we are both aware that if we stay here and try and struggle through we will more than likely end up resenting each other in 6 months time as when ever we get asked to do anything our response has to be we can't afford it! Especially as Tom lost his job 2 weeks ago and hasn't found anything else yet! Life is a bit crap at the mo and hate the idea of living apart, just trying to tell myself that it is for the best and we will be much happier being able to do things rather than sit in the house and worry about paying the bills!

    Just got to hope my folks will take me back, hate putting that pressure on them as they have a tiny house with hardly any room, but not sure what else to do! Any advice would be welcome.

    Popple sorry for hijacking your post of good news with my depression, i'm very happy for you - just wish life was a bit easier and wondering what I have done to be sent so much crap to test me!

    Woweee, congratulations. At least you know the reason for your super boobs!!

    I felt really drained a couple of months into my pregnancy, but felt good past the 3 month or so mark. You'll be fine, just do what you can and then have plenty of REST!

    Popple master, brilliant news!! you have also given me hope as I was starting to think I had left it too late... hence the problems we are having!!

    I have in the past 6 months developed lots of pregancy symptoms, feeling tired, very very sore boobs but keep getting my period!! Our bodies are strange things arent they!!

    I princess.. dont worry.. sometimes you have to do what you have to do, and even though it might be hard, you are doing it for the right reasons and not because you dont want to be together. You are right, living beyond your means and getting into debt is no good. Remember you and H2b moved in together fairly soon after meeting, so dont call it a step backwards just normal progress of your relationship (if you get what I mean). Living apart for a short while will help you safe for your wedding too!! and do nice things together!! I hope all that makes sense I know what I mean!!

    another idea is buy a tent, then you can have weekends away on your own without parents!!

    Congratulations! This is great news - much better than thinking something horrendous was up with you :eek:

    My aunty had my cousin (only child) when she was 41 (in contrast to my mum, her sister, who popped us out when she was 21/23). New little people for weddings are great!

    Sorry to hear your news iprincess - everything has a funny way of working itself out, you'll get there. Thoughts with Tom, I lost my job last week too. He'll get something soon. X

    Awww thanks. I have to say, i'm much calmer now than when I had my son at 27. I've got no rush to a career to get back to and am really looking forward to it. Just hate the 'wow you're old' type comments from other people. I do worry that when I am 50 the child will be 12! Pe3ople will think i'm it's grandmother collecting from school!

    Splendid splendid news P, so happy for you :0)

    You're not old. My parents are a bit older than those of my friends' of the same age. I can honestly say this fact passed me by for my entire life. I only really twigged when I was arranging my mum's 60th and realised my friend's parents we're all in their early 50's still. So it honestly doesn't matter!

    How exciting!
