:lol:

Bert is the only girl amongst the cousins and my sister definitely plays favourites, but that's more about her having wanted a girl, and Bert hates being the only one so I figure it balances out. The boys don't really seem to notice although it would have been different if it were a grandparent doing the favouring.

That's breathtakingly rude, Rhod!

Poor Tim! And Rhod what a strange thing to say in a congratulations card.

My best friend has a similar set up to you Ken. Her MIL told her that if her third was another boy, she wouldn't be doing any regular childcare. :ella:

Whaaat?! Lorri that’s awful.

And what weird thing to write in a card, Rhod.

I’ll say it again, people are dicks.

People are dicks, although I was just as bad! Maybe that's why she didn't send me a Christmas card this year! :lol:

Good luck with the scan, Beatrix!

Sometimes the only appropriate response is to needle someone the way they've tried to needle you, Rhod!

People are so bizarrely smug/rude about something that is complete chance. See also: conceiving quickly.

I remember one of the midwives asking me if I'd try again to have a girl, while I was holding my less than an hour old youngest (and 3rd boy). People just don't think :ella:

What a rude thing for her to do Rhod. An old competitive friend was similar when she was having her second. She thought my second had been a girl so was quite smug about having one of each. As if it really mattered at all!

Good luck with the scan Beatrix, I hope it’s nice and clear.

I have been scanned. All present and correct, I am relieved! Didn’t get very good pictures as it was fast asleep on its tummy :).

That's great! Although I'm sorry that they're being awkward already. ;)

That's great news, Beatrix! Did your due date get moved much?

They moved my due date back a day. I’m working on the basis that I’ll go to at least 41 weeks, assuming my pregnancy progresses normally, so early September.

They could share a birthday with mine then! Or Conchie or Biggie. ;)

I hope all went well with your scan, lorri.

I’m feeling positively human again thanks to the medication. Still a bit hit and miss, but more hit than miss as the week has gone on. I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I do need to set an alarm in the middle of the night to take a tablet but it is worth it. I’ve been a lot less sick and even had periods of no nausea.

That's great Beatrix, I hope the rest of the pregnancy is kinder to you.

Unfortunately baby wasn't cooperating and still had the cord between its legs (as it did at 12 weeks). It was such a lovely scan though, she spent about 45 mins trying, so we got a really good look at baby. We are back next Sat for a rescan!

Ah I’m sorry you didn’t get to find out but glad you got a good look and will see baby again next week. Hopefully they’ll be in a better position!

I did the same thing, always had a later date in my head to focus on. I told most people my due date was 2 weeks later than it was too!

Fingers crossed baby will be in a better position next time, lorri.
