I got 2 lovely cards, one from my oh and one from Oscar, which he has already tried to eat! I also got tea and toast brought to me in bed and oh got Oscar dressed and changed the 1st nasty nappy while I ate.
Hubby's now gone to work but is going to try and get the evening off if they're quiet as he was supposed to have the whole day.
Overall I'm a happy bunny, just wish we could spend the whole day as a family!
Hope everyone has a nice day, whatever you got and whatever you're doing! Xxx

I got a loverly card from Freya and later today I am having a loverly meal cooked for me. Upside to living with a chef/fireman. I was promised a day off today. But so far I have got up with Freya and I have done all the housework. Am a little annoyed that I was the one to get up and am still waiting for my breakfast but I do believe I am nesting so the house work has to be done by me to be to my satisfaction. Besides if he were to do it I would just go again after him. LoL.
But once Freya wakes form her nap we are going for a loverly walk and I plan to do NOTHING (no nappies, cooking, cleaning etc) for the rest of that day.

I got a card thats says to mummy from your little princess (ah sooooo cute). Got Jamie Oliver cook book that i wanted and some ferrero rocher which are my favourite choccies.
Just wondering why anyone but your children would get you a mothers day card????
Mar 22, 2009 8:46AM
I dont think Ive got anything for Mothers day
OH was at work last night so is still in bed sleeping. Ive got up with Zacky who has a cold and is spotty. And there wasnt even a card left downstairs for me. Oh and im doing 3 weeks worth of washing as well. OH hasnt even written his cards for his mom and step mom yet (I had to get the cards). Rant over.
Wishing all you mommies a happy mothers day, especially if its your first.
Mar 22, 2009 8:52AM
I didnt get anything...so much for all the hints i have been dropping. OH said he didnt know why i was so worked up about it and men dont think about that kind of thing...obviously they do...One very depressed mummy.

Have just moaned about this on Born in Dec but it felt so good I'm going to do it again.
I expect I sound ungrateful but what I wanted was a day off (lie in, no housework, no nappies, maybe even no bf as I've been stockpiling ebm, perhaps lunch out in the sun). What I got was a card with 4 words in, a mag light for my keyring (mine was stolen when we were burgled so that was thoughtful).and eggy bread in bed at 7am, presumably because they were the only two edible things in the house. The shop is all of 5 mins away.
DH has since been sulking about who knows what all day so I've been tidying up after him and keeping out of his way :roll: As I was saying to the Dec girls, if he ever treated me from time to time (or even just did some bloody housework) I don't think I'd be feeling like this, but he doesn't so it wouldn't have hurt him to make an effort for my first mothers' day.
His mum has just texted saying "hope you're being spoiled" or something and I don't know what to say.
From another very depressed mummy

I got some lovely chocolates and a card but my best present was 4.5 hours solid sleep from 12:30 until 5, bless the boy. Have been made to suffer for it though, as he is going through a growth spurt and eating every hour and a half for a good half hour and hasn't had a nap all morning (which means mummy hasn't either
Oh, and the house gave us both an unwelcome present in the form of a leaky kitchen ceiling due to the incompetent plumber who failed to switch the broken shower of correctly. It always happens on a Sunday, doesn't it? *sigh*

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
