Can we get everyone's PMA one 1 thread?

Hi ladies

This might be a bit daft, but I've been feeling distinctly lacking in PMA the last few days and I sat down and had a really good think about what having a baby means to me. I remembered why I'm doing this and soon I actually felt much better and excited about TTC again. SO......I wondered, if we all posted our PMA thoughts on one thread, any time any of us are feeling a bit down we can have a look and cheer ourselves up. I hope you dont think it's a rubbish idea, anyways here goes.....

When I think of tiny hands and feet it makes me smile
When I get that BFP being able to pat my tummy and know I have a tiny bean in there
Picturing all the fab things we can do as a family, walks in the woods, finger painting!
A year off work :lol:
No more period pains image

happy baby making

PS I meant to say, cute pics welcome too - only I dont know how to post em!! lol

  • Oh my goodness! Your post just made me well up! I think it's excellent idea. You have done most of the list for me.

    I would like to add to it:

    The first kick - that will be amazing
    The first time they say Mummy/Daddy
    When they smile when they see you

    I just can't wait!

  • This is brilliant!! I'm loving what a soppy bunch we are! This is my PMA for this month -

    I keep picturing my hubby picking the baby up and holding it high, then bringing it down for a big kiss and it giggling and gurgling away happily (odd image, I know!)

    Seeing that BFP then showing it to hubby and watching his face light up.

    Going for a scan and seeing the bean that we have created.

    Fingers crossed for lots of BFPs this month!! x x
  • aww ladies I'm so glad you like the post, I'm welling up just reading your responses so you're not alone laura! Another thing I thought of that makes me smile is that really hearty chuckle babies have, guaranteed to make anyone nearby laugh too.

  • Gembags, I'm really glad this post cheered you up. I'm keeing everything crossed for you that this is your month.


    PS - lovin the pics by the way!
  • I love this post, its so lovely, and its making me cry!!

    The things i think about when i think of a baby are:

    making us a 'family' (i always think of how a child drawing pictures of their family and their perception of their safe, happy family)

    holding my tummy knowing im carrying a tiny baby and i need to keep them safe

    folding tiny little baby clothes

    Thats all i can think of right now.

  • Oh wow this is a lovely thread :\)

    I want to second what everybody has already said

    and add

    looking over the cot and watching my baby sleep, i could do that for hours.
    making my oh a daddy and seeing him hold his baby for the first time.
    Wrapping the baby up in a bath towel with ears, so cute!
    Hearing those cute noises they make when they drink.
    Hearing my baby chuckle, that baby advert (is it cow & gate?) where it says does it look like i have an upset tummy? and the babies are chuckling, that's my favourite ever advert and never fails to make me smile.

    The tiny clothes on the washing line, that's a good one. I used to look at the baby clothes on my neighbours line and be so jealous..

    Until she grew up to be a spoilt little brat... :lol:
