I honestly didn't think I would be posting in this thread. I became a Dad at 19 and again at 22. I'm 36 now and we are expecting our third child in February next year. It has came as a bit of a surprise but we're all very excited.

Thanks, do the older kids help out with the baby? My concern is that the age gap is too big and the baby will have no real connection with their older siblings.

The 16 year old practically brings her up! The 19 year old interacts with her a bit more now that she's at the toddling stage, the 9 year old helps out, too.

My oldest has just got over a bout of gastroenteritis, the highlights of which included a trip to A+E and Mrs B finding blood on her pillow in the middle of the night, during all of which I have been away at work, utterly shiting it.

Thank f**k its past now. No doubt the youngests turn incoming.

That's good to know, our eldest will probably be off to uni next year so won't have that much to do with the baby. Our youngest is very helpful around the house and I'm hoping that will continue once the baby is here. Having said that, he's yet to fully enter the 'Kevin the teenager' stage so we shall wait and see.

No more stressing on beach days with this girl, with this handy bit of kit. She had full inclusion with the rest of the clan and she loved every minute of it 😍. Bought through funding and available to the kids that need it

Anyone have any experience of waters breaking early? Mine broke on Friday morning at exactly 27 weeks :( Baby is good but on bed rest and twice weekly checkups at the hospital for blood tests and scans. Just a waiting game really now.

This was a whole year ago!

Wee Fraser will be one in 2 weeks! He's doing so well for a 29 weeker. Mastered sitting up this last week. He should catch up developmentally by the age of 2. He's a great wee character!

All grand here. Full remission confirmed today and not back at the consultant for 12 weeks. 

Here's a wee before and after of the wee man!

My mate's wee one arrived after 26 weeks. She weighed 2lb and was on oxygen for a good while but she is a healthy wee girl now with no after effects. 27 weeks obviously isn't ideal and we'd all be slightly concerned but hopefully the above shows you that even so early on they are fighters and you don't have to fear the worst.
Told you not to worry

Great to see him doing well. My mate's daughter is the same. We think they are so pathetically fragile but they are far stronger than we give them credit for.

The wee man managed to get stung not once but twice at the football on Saturday.

Way too young to be buying HT raffle tickets imo.

Only 6? We've 15...

Now that I've a bit of time on my hands I must try to resurrect THE LIST, it disappeared one time when I had laptop problems. Mind you there are 659 pages to plough through and collate, heedthebaa will have probably caught up with me in the grandchildren stakes by the time I get it done...

Was this at Broadwood? We had 2 constantly flying about us in the home stand. It's obviously that time of year! Even in Mönchengladbach yesterday when I was having lunch one of the wee b*****ds kept flying around me. Poor choice to have ordered a Fanta probably!
