Don't shoot me but .....
We're not having a tree!!!!!!!
I would only ever have a real one as I LOVE the smell but we are away from the 19th to the 27th so it would drop a MILLION needles while we are gone! My lo's birthday is the 5th (THIS FRI
) so we have decided that we would always have his birthday first and then get the decorations out for Christmas - we will have otehr decs up but no tree this year! Didn't have one last year as I was in hosptial till 15th with lo in SCBU and when we got home it was all to knackering to think about a tree.
Looking forward to having my fairy lights out!

I havent yet as in our family its always been tradition to do it 12 days before christmas, however this is my first christmas in my own home so i intend to do it at some point this week, probably the weekend. Still need to get some decorations so wont do it until I got everything I want x
Dec 2, 2008 5:39AM
then take it down on Boxing day!!
we dont really take it down on boxing day, but we do leave it til Xmas eve- this is cos my first was born on the 23rd, and i have a big thing about his birthday and xmas are seperate!!
we have a wall dedicated to his birthday cards, and another for xmas cards!

i always wanted our xmas tree to be put up on my birthday (7th) when i was little but my mum never would cuz she stuck to the 12 days before 12 days after rule, since moving out 3 years ago i dont think i've put it up on my birthday once yet and this year will be no different lol! x
Dec 2, 2008 5:56AM
We dont normaly bother putting one up as we dont stay at home for christmas we normaly go away for the whole holiday season.
The kids have decided they want to stay home next year, so we will decorate the house for defo next year on the 1st of the month as this is when we used to do it growing up x

When i was little teh decs would go up 2nd weekend in dec, Then the tree would go up on xmas eve.
But since I've moved out we put our decs and tree up 1st weekend of dec , but this year we've got new furniture coming so we'll wait until its all put together and got the living room sorted out.
Although I remember one year when we came back from disneyworld on the 25 November and had got used to having decs up so after we had a good sleep we put them up that day lol

Dec 2, 2008 8:56AM
Putting mine up Saturday/Sunday, I love my tree although now Isaac is mobile I'm not too sure how long it will last this year.
Dec 2, 2008 9:30AM
Putting ours up on the weekend 13th / 14th. Would love it up now, but we've got to take Lily's play pen down for it, so I'm putting it off a little bit longer.

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
