    Hi Ladies
    Sorry I have been really busy working, shopping and being a mummy.
    Just a quick question.... I haven't gone for my 6 week check up(oops). Should I still go? What do they even do at the check up? I figured everything was gioing great and I didn't have any questions so I haven't bothered to go. The only reason I think I might fgo to the gp is to get the WONDERFUL PILL!

    Sarah, your GP can do your 6 week check up. Its mainly to check that everything is okay, your uterus has gone back to normal and to see what you want to do about birth control.

    Hi all,

    Nat - you and I seem to be on the same wave length - Sarah, you should have your 6 week check up cause it is mainly to ensure your uterus has settled correctly as well as make sure you are doing ok mentally - I was also under the impression you have a pap test done at the same time but don't know if that's the norm or not I had one at both 6 week appt.

    Leah, I got a $100 fine yesterday too!!

    Well, I'm having a really hard time atm cause Kyana is so irritable I just don't know how to help her - I went to the paed and Gp yesterday for her and they have said there's not much I can do for her just ride it out and she will grow out of it eventually but they are also thinking she could be suffering abit of an allergic reaction to the formula's but there's not much options for her other than what we are doing anyway, that's another story.

    Shynelle's hand is ok she's using it all the time so it's not bothering her too much but she still has the big blister on it and I'm so tempted to bust it but dont' know if I should...

    That's all for me - gonna go and give Kyana a bath before her last bottle and hopefully, that will settle her properly for the night - I need a full night sleep Arrrggghhh....

    dd hope you get a good nights sleep.
    Leah bugger about the fine
    danni glad to hear you've had a good couple of days. Hope she keeps it up.
    Silvi how are things going ATM?

    My checkup was fine and after OB felt my scar :eek: he declared I was in good order and could try it out. PMSL now I have to find the time, energy and motivation for that!

    The boy is cracking it so nicky off time again *sigh* it's almost as if he has a BB radar set to go off after 4 1/2 mins

    Hi girls
    Thanks for your advice. I'm going to make an appointment today. Mainly for the birth control.
    Well little William is asleep in my arms so I must be off so I can finally put him down and get some housework done!

    Hi girls

    How is everyone?

    Leah - sorry to hear about your parking fine, what a bummer!!!

    dd - poor Kyana, I do hope she grows out of it like the GP said asap, it musn't be easy for either of you.

    Sarah - I went to my GP for my 6 week check-up a few weeks back, she didn't even check me down below, just asked if everything had healed!!! i'm going back tonight though for a pap smear, what fun, and also to get my blood pressure checked, as i'm still on meds for it as it's still high.....anyway, probably best you go just to get everything checked on.

    Lucas is still being a little saint, and sleeping well at night - last night he had a feed at 6pm and slept all the way through to 5am!!!! but working it out, if he continues like this it means he's only getting 4 bottles a day - he's meant to be on 5, so we may have to wake him around 10pm I think.
    The poor little guy had his 2 month needles yesterday - he absolutely screamed! :-( it was so upsetting.......

    Will bbl to chat more but typing 1 handed atm but wanted to tell dd that i had ds#2 on a dairy and soy free formula and we had a different kid almost overnite, the paed gastro that we saw at RCH said he was probably sensitive to the other ones. A Paediatrician or a knowledgeable GP should know about it and u can get it on script to make it cheaper, just a thought, i hate it when docs say "oh they'll just grow out of it" sorry but thats crap there's obviously something wrong grrrrrrrr

    Kat~ i cant beleive lucas can go for that long its insane! good 4 u guys!!!!! although if he is droppin that feed id b careful cause lucy dropped a feed and didnt gain but if he is takin in bigger feeds less then he would b gettin the same ammount IYKWIM? if that makes sence!? if i were u just get him weighed sooner rather than later and they will tell u if he is therite weight which im sure he is!? if he wasnt gettin enough he probly woukd b screaming the house down?! good on you!

    DD~ I cant beleive u gota fine too! I wasnt paying attention and didnt see i was in one hr parking which is a bit unfair! I mean I hav a smal bub! but I spose they dont look at things like that! [email protected]$tards!!!

    Sarah~ Please dont talk bout the pill Im jelous!!!!!!!!! the pill is a life saver!!!! wish I could take it!

    WELL at the visit the nurse also said i shouldnt b co-sleeping...how do I change? hav u girls got any ideas on how to get lucy in to her bassinette?? might do up a thread and see what ppl come up with? I actually like co-sleeping but I would never forgive myself if she died from SIDS.... we have a king size bed though and I dont roll.....mmmmm o well.... she has just fallen asleep in my arms while riting this so am gonna go put her in her cot...she wont stay there for long though....

    Leah follow your heart on the co sleeping thing. I think people have strong ideas either one way or the other. If you are comfortable with it then it shouldn't be a problem.
    I don't mind it but as I'm a light sleeper I found that their little snuffles kept me awake.
    Caleb was in out bed for about 2 weeks then we put him in his cot. I used a oil filled heater to keep the chill off his room and he adjusted well.

    Leah - yay at Lucy's weight gain!! she is a teeny bubby though isn't she? Lucas was over 4.7kgs at his last weigh in!!!
    Thanks for the advice about his bottles, as it was, he didn't do his big sleep last night - woke at 3am, then 7am, grrrr!!! so I think sleeping through was just a one off......
    As for co-sleeping, as Sammi said, I think you should do what you want. Do you have Lucy in her cot during the day? perhaps you could try her in it for little amounts of time, and get her used to it - maybe even put in a piece of your clothing so she has your smell near her.

    Hope everyone else is doing well!!

    Lucas had his first trip to the beach today!!!! but he slept the whole time, lol!!!!!!

    Hi girls

    Kat~ How did Lucas like his first trip to the beach?

    Sam~ I am getting so great at the one handed typing!!!

    Leah~ I agree with the other girls regarding co-sleeping. Follow what you feel is right. I have only just got William into his cradle the last 2 nights. I put him in the sleeping rolls so he is nice and snug in there and he even slept through the night last night!! HOORAY.
    Yay on Lucy's weight gain!

    Thanks for the advice Dawn - i know what your saying cause mum and I both know that if she's crying like she is there must be something not right and it can't just be the reflux!!

    Anyway, the up side to it is the nurse spoke with the council and I'm getting home help for about six weeks taking me up to 1st Dec so hopefully, that should help me have some peace knowing that my floors will get vac/mopped and my toilets will be cleaned!

    Better go Kyana's is lying in Lee's arms atm and she's due for a feed so I'm gonna give that to her and try and get some sleep. Got a big day 2morro my dad's 65th b'day and also he retired yesterday so we're having a bit of a "family do" for him - poor thing he was so sad yesterday - I told him not worry I'd find heaps of things to keep him busy!

    Hi Ladies just catching up on everyones week!

    Leah and DD bugger about the parking fine! ITs such a hassle to find parking which is convenient with a baby!!!

    Yay for Lucy putting on weight Leah, you must feel so much better now...

    DD its quite upsetting when you dont get the help you need from the so called professionals, I guess they dont live with the issue so dont think its a big deal!

    Kat, that is a great sleep for Mr Lucas, shame he hasnt continued!!! You guys mustve been in shock!

    Nat great news about Zain that is a MASSIVE gain!!! You got good milk!

    Well my news, not much really. Emilia put on 210 grams this week so i am really happy. her nights are still the same which is good. Does anyone know when you are supposed to expect them to start sleeping longer or when you should put them to bed earlier and drop a feed etc? Or is it something they work out in their own time?
    Emilia is smiling so much these days, and is really interactive. When we are out and people are holding her if she hears our voice she turns her head to look at us its amazing!

    Had a visit to Kings Park on Friday with my girlfriends from pregnancy swimming, our babes are all within 2 weeks of each other. was great fun!

    Joined the Fitness First today so am looking forward to getting back into shape, the one near me has a creche which is fantastic. I have also booked us in for baby dolphins at the physio centre which we start next week after her 2 month immunisations...

    Sarah I had my 6 week check this week just gone, and I had a pap smear, he also checked my scar tissue, as it was quite uncomfortable and bit painful during sex. He told me it looked great and that lots of sex will fix the uncomfortableness, so we had a go last night and it was GREAT!!! Oh and we talked about contraception, which i think we will stick with condoms as we are considering trying for another bub next year...

    Well hope you have all had a great weekend! The weather in Perth is amazing at the moment!!!

    HEy everyone

    Just a quickie, anneliese is waking up...

    Anneliese is is 000's now, 4 months old. would be 2 months corrected on 13/10.

    Shhh... Secret news... Gotta get a pg test this week, AF came back, and disappeared again, normally once i get it back after bubs, its here to stay. Praying im not, as i already have 3 under 3, i will have 4 under 4, not sure how i would cope with that!! We were talking about having another one last night, but we want to start trying when Anneliese is about 2 or 3. Ive already decided on a name for a girl (DH has no choice, i push them out!!) Giselle Evelyn. I dont know about a boy though... Gosh, im crazy, somebody slap me!! Why am i thinkinga bout more!!! hehe

    Hi all,

    Thought I'd pop in to say hi and let you all know I'm feeling abit down atm - I don't really know why just perhaps maybe tired with Kyana's unsettledness plus DH and I seem to at each other which isn't really like us - money is majorly tight and I'm back to the Dr's again today just seems endless - I also have to go and see another specialist cause I had a brain CT the other week and they found something behind my left ear and I've gotta go get that checked out now - my mum reckons I musta run over a china man in a past life or something - she's very superastitious lol! - but the realism of it is I think it's just getting to me abit and DH keeps asking me where the no nonsense positive person he loved has gone cause i'm so negative - i don't think I am I just think he thinks I'm supermum and I'm not - I'm just so tired all the time and I don't think he remembers to praise me atm but he does remember to critise and it's all just getting to me - I told him this morning and he was very sorry he was doing this to me and said he didn't realise but I still don't feel any better...I just hate it cause I just feel so sad atm and I should be happy to even be here at all.....

    Sorry to vent...hopefully will be feeling better later just needed to express myself.
    xxdd
