  • Penguin Tetra school breaking up?

    hi, I have just added four penguin tetra as the first fish to my new tank, however, the smallest of the four is swimming funny and away from the group, all day now he has been almost permanently vertical, as though he is looking for food, although he hasn't eaten when I have put food into the tank? I am worried that he has been hurt by the others, or bullied out of the school :( any ideas? I planned on adding more fish on Sunday, should be I be looking at removing this little guy or should I look for another set of tetras a little smaller (he really is quite a bit smaller than the others) so that he can join the new gang? Would appreciate your opinions? Thanks

  • Reconnect Missing Files??? help!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

    I am in a total spin, using Adobe Photo shop version 3 (discontinued) when viewing my photos in the ORGANISER, almost all my photos (over 6000) have got a "broken link icon" like a red square at the bottom, and its unable to open when I click on the thumbnail, say Reconnect Missing Files, only problem is that the folders where the picture should be on Windows explorer are completely empty??? What have I done, any advice, I am going to hunt through the recycle bin and temp files now, but I have done a full Norton scan and its nota virus, and I have checked available memory so its not like the computer is "full", any help would be appreciated folks :)

  • Has your midwife ever forgotten you?

    Seems strange, but I turned up for my 18 week appointmenta nd the midwife glanced at my tummy and said "so is this your first appointment?" I was like "erm no, I am nearly half way through" maybe I didn't bug her enough or call her in the night about the slightest thing, but would you have felt put out too? Or is it just those pregnancy hormones again :)))

  • Triple/CVS tests, anyone else didn't have these?

    Hi there, just wondering if there is anyone else who has opted not to take the Triple/CVS tests, I am feeling rather upset as everyone I talk to seems to have taken these and in some cases had amniocentesis when they had what I would consider real outside odds of anything being wrong, I know its personal choice, which I made as I could never have followed through with an abortion on the grounds of the test results, but is there anyone else now feeling bad they didn't take them :))

  • Body hair and baby's gender? Anyone heard there is a link?

    Ok, so I have my 20 week scan all booked for New Years eve and we have decided to not find out the baby's gender, but secretly I would like an idea, anyway, I have heard that how your body hair grows during pregnancy is linked, things like leg hair stopping growing means its a girl, or getting extra hair where you didn't want it means a boy? Anybody out there believe there is a link, or correctly worked out whether they were having a boy or a girl simply from checking their leg hair LOL :)))

  • Bigger feet make Labour easier??? Anyone else heard of this?

    Ok, so I was asked by my OH's sister what shoe size I am (I said Uk 8) she said labour will be easy because the bigger the shoe size the more "wide" you can open up, I am not convinced and wonder if anyone else has ever been asked this. She said it was something her midwife asked with her second baby, and was added to her notes (so seems believable)??? What do you think?

  • Is there a right time to start buying things for baby?

    Ok, so my amazing friend went and bought me some lovely presents on hearing I am pregnant (dummies, rattle, blanket) and a nice bath set for myself, but part of me feels slightly superstitious about gifts for the baby, I am 14 weeks now, so when would you say is an ok time to start buying things?? I know I have ages yet, but I was also figuring that if I see something at a good price now there is no waiting because of stupid old wives tales, advice please:))?

  • When does your baby start to hear you?

    I am 13 weeks now and have been singing my heart out to tour dog Reggie for weeks hoping he will learn to join in, then the baby can get used to hearing both of us:)) I always mention his name towards my belly and the baby when Reggie growls or yawns, but I just wanted to know are these efforts all in vain, at what stage will the baby start to hear me and Reggie (the dog)???

  • Arrrrrgghh! Do I really have to tell my Mum?

    Please, does anyone else have some bad experience of telling their Mum about being pregnant, I need to get some perspective, if I honestly could hide the fact that I am having a baby until its 18 and gone off to University I would. I am dreading telling her and feel like I have left it too late (I have my first scan on Thursday) and really I know a girls mum is the first person who should know (even my window cleaner knows before my mum) This has gotten out of hand. P.S I am 31 years old, which makes this even more embarrasing. Advice please:)))

  • When do I get free prescriptions and dental ? UK?

    Hi, I am 10 weeks now and wondering at what point I will get an exemption from paying for prescriptions and dental work. I have a scan and antenatal appointment Nov 6th, do they only give you the form when they have confirmed your pregnancy via a scan or should I have had this already?
