    Think I'm the first in!!!

    Ok this morning I still have an unsettled baby thank goodness I have app with the nurse this morning!! I bet Kyana will be a perfect baby while I'm in there it happens every time I'm sure the nurse thinks I'm making it up.

    Thanks for the support guys appreciate just being able to tell someone cause I don't think most people understand they just think it's part of having a baby but I can assure you I didn't go through this with Shynelle and I'm hoping thhat once we hit the 12week mark she'll become way more settled.

    xxdd

    Hi guys,

    Sorry I haven't been around much....I've been sick since having Ollie (colds then c/sect scar infection, then URTI with burst eardrum) and Ollie has had almost a week in hospital with bronchialitis and he's also really colic-y.

    I hope to have a bit of time in the next few days to catch up on everyone's posts and see how you are all doing. Hope all mums and bubs are happy and healthy.

    urgh... soo hard to concentrate with screaming baby attached to chest in hug-a-bub!! back soon, i hope!

    Lucas for the past couple of nights has been feeding every 3 or 4 hours again....grrr! but last night he went from about 9.30pm to 4am which I suppose is better?!

    Hope everyone else is doing okay!

    Hi all! Had a puter make over due to a virus and a couple of other problems that took longer than expected.
    Kat 9:30 - 4 is fantastic! Caleb is doing 3 hours between feeds overnight. Hopefully he'll sleep longer for me soon.
    Zola sorry to hear you've been unwell. Sending you healthy vibes!
    DD hope Kyana shows the nures her antics for you. IKWYM about them being perfect when you're trying to get help for a problem. I'm sure mt Dr thinks I'm a paranoid mother sometimes.
    Leah yikes at Danny! Though you never know how you'll feel in a few months
    Sarah the bracelet sounds nice! All the best for your weightloss.
    Sorry I can't remember anymore for personals but hello to Dee, Natalie, Dawn, Simone and anyone else I've forgotten!

    I'm feeling a bit low ATM Guess it's all hit me now.
    Caleb hasn't been sleeping much at all through the day, which makes it hard to do much. At least he's smiling now He is just gorgeous his whole face lights up. I'm hoping to get a photo of one but that has got to be the hardest thing to do in the world!

    Hi Sammi, i too know what you mean about it hitting you... i feel a bit down this week too... Dh has been working so much lately, he doesnt get home till about 8 which ****es me cause emilia needs to be held from 5 - 9 most nights as she wont settle... then on weekends he works most of the time as well.. feel like a single parent at the moment... i dont want to put pressure on him though as i know he is stressed and if he had it his way he would be home with us.... but it makes me more tired more stressed and feeling more down.... ITS CRAP! Oh well that's my rant for today! I went to my mothers group today god i feel so much better there hearing everyone else going through similar stuff! feel half normal!

    Has anyone's baby's started dropping feeds? Emilia has had a couple of days tis week where she has dropped from 6 feeds to 5... i am a bit worried as they say they need 6 feeds a day to put on weight??? I have a meeting with the health nurse tomorrow so i am keen to see how much weight she gained this week. I am scared she hasnt gained a thing...

    Not much else to report here, except GO EAGLES!! WHOO WHOOO...

    Hi all,
    As usual I don't have much time but I do try to get on and read everyday.
    Sammi, Who hoo for Caleb smiling Kyana is smiling too - when she's not crying!

    Kyana is onto about 5 feeds a day but we are still struggling quite abit here - I have Lee's niece over helping keep Shynelle entertained for me so I can try an deal with Kyana's almost constant crying but yesterday was a really good day and today hasn't been too bad had a couple of dummy spits but I've been struggling to get her to feed. The good news is she did play up when I was with the nurse but there's not much I can do about it, but she has put on some weight so YAY!!! She's 4.9kgs little porker and I don't know how she throws up sooooo much!!

    Leah, you will have your period longer cause of the medication. I have had mine now for nearly two weeks and everytime I think it's finally slowing down it gets heavy again but I have my appt with my blood dr on Monday and am gonna talk to him about it cause I'm sick of it too!!!!!!!! gggggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...........

    Oh I drink heaps too never seem to get enough water into me.

    Welcome Silvi how have things been for you so far?

    xxdd

    HI Girls, thanks for that Leah, I actually went to the health nurse today and Emilia put on another 170 gs she is averaging about 200 gs a week and she grew 4 cms! So i feel a lot happier knowing she is ok... She has gone up and down with feeds this week has been very unusual but she has gone back to 6 feeds in the last couple of days, so god knows what is going on! I should try tracking a bit better like writing them down so there may be a pattern somewhere!??

    Crap news about your periods dragging girls, i am yet to get mine... i have been feeling quite crap this week though so it may come soon!??

    DD glad to hear Kyana has improved a little... and that she is gaining weight! She is doing really well to be almost 5kgs! Emilia is 4220gs at the moment!

    Do you girls who Breast Feed, still feel your boobs get firm when yo uare due to feed? I dont really get it anymore, by the end of the day they are quite soft and i feel bad cause i think there is no milk... I HATE WORRYING ABOUT HAVING NO MILK, BUT SHE WOULDNT BE PUTTING ON WEIGHT IF I DIDNT! IAM AN IDIOT!!!!

    Welcome Silvi, how have you been going with ty?

    Hi to everyone else!!!

    Ty's been really good..his very content, which everybody comments on..

    4 days after we brought him home he had a bad case of conjunctivitis, grabbed some drops from the hospital and after about a week and a half he was fine...but now his got a case of constipation, thinned out him formula and am giving him 15 drops of coloxyl, but it comes and goes..

    Other than that he is a happy little man who coo's and smiles and make my day...
