    hehe - i haven't been game to give him grapes yet.. i have a feeling he'd just keep popping htem in his mouth without chewing and swallowing! LOL. I think he enjoys the act of eating and biting rather than actually eating iykwim? And OMG at the mess he gets in these days! So much better when he's spoon fed LOL. Oh well. Lucky his highchair is on the lino, so it's pretty easy to clean up.

    We actually concieved Tallon on our first proper attempt. The delay with TTC was that I had no cycle for 10 months, so had to have tests and stuff, then went on Metformin, but fell pg on the 2nd cycle, but first time trying. So technically, we fell first go, but really, we were unofficially trying for about 6 months or so.

    Ooooh, so it might be a BFP for you very soon!! Are you on Metformin again, or has your cycle been back to normal since having Tallon? Sorry if I'm being too nosey!

    It's been like clockwork since 3 months! (well.. kinda - the cycles are getting a bit longer each time.. but so far, the cycles seem to be normal, and I seem to be O'ing) So I'm hoping I don't need Metformin again. I'll be a little nervous if I fall without it, coz Metformin is meant to help prevent miscarriage with pcos... so I'll be a bit scared those first 12 weeks!

    Imran ate spagetti tonight. It was so funny - he would grab a handful then mush as much as he could in his mouth and suck up the rest making big slupy noises. He was really pleased with himself so he was doing huge smiles with bits of spagetti hanging out all over the place rofl.

    Haha at Imran and spaghetti. Lucy loves pasta with bolognese sauce, but why is it the things they love the most also make the most mess?

    Liz, if you are Oing without the Metformin does that mean the PCOS is dormant or at least under control? 'Cause surely that means your chance of miscarriage is also reduced.

    OMG Lucy has just climbed on top of a box. Didn't know she could do that! Better go and rescue what I've hidden behind the box...!

    Can't remember if I told you guys - Tallon had a banana the other day - thought I'd try again since bananas were only $1.99/kg!! He chomped it down! So he obviously likes them now! LOL. Anyway - I must put up the photo of the MESS he made. OMG! I had to rinse his clothes straight away, as I think banana is one of the worst foods to get out. And he was so pleased with himself and the mess he made. He was clapping his sticky hands together and having a grand ol' time!

    Jen - I hope so! I'm not really a stresshead kinda person, so I won't be toooooo worried thru the 1st tri, but it will be in the back of my mind. Mum said her AF became regular after having a baby too, so maybe pregnancy helps regulate the hormones? PCOS is usually a hormone imbalance.

    Not meaning to butt in to your convo Liz and Jen13, my sister has PCOS and her specialist told her that having a baby can sometimes get rid of the PCOS. I hope this is true for you LIz!
    Does anyone know if you can have a VB after multiple c sections?

    Not sure Steph, you should ask your ob I guess. I know my only issue is that I can't be induced, but I've only had one c/s. They call a vbac 'trial of scar' also, so I guess they're testing whether that is strong enough to withstand the contractions of labour. I would assume that multiple c/s means it's a lot less likely to cope with contractions, but I am by no means qualified to give anything other than an opinion! Why don't you try posting a qn on the medical forum?

    Liz, Lucy just looooves bananas. I break them in half so she can hold them a bit more easily, but it takes her only a minute or two to get down each half. I didn't know PCOS was caused by a hormone imbalance, I guess you'll find out pretty soon if yours is going to be an issue or not! I'm going to check out Tallon's photo now.

    Too cute Liz! Love the bemused smile while hugging the tree! Girls, as you can tell, Liz is on an environmentally-friendly spree... LOL

    Ooooo I'm so excited!!!! Lucy took her first steps on Friday and is getting more and more sure of herself!! She's so good at standing and toddling around (mostly with support on the walking, but she puts in the odd steps on her own) that I can put her in dresses and she doesn't trip herself!

    I managed to get her first steps on video, amazingly. She was trying so hard to walk to me that I set the video up in the hope that if I encouraged her she'd do it properly. Not sure how clear the video is going to be, but hey, at least I know what it is! She looks so grown up standing there and tottering towards us...

    Hope everyone else is well!

    Oh yay for Lucy! Tallon stood on his own for a few seconds last night. He did it a couple of times, and he kinda did a couple of steps whilst falling towards the lounge iykwim. hehe.. .not really walking.

    We are having monstrous nappies atm I'm not sure if I should be worried? We're having 4-5 very loose bowel movements a day.. they're disgusting. In all other ways he's the same.. playful etc. He's not lethargic and doesn't have a temp or anything.. so I'm putting it down to teething poos. The only thing is I'm worried he might be losing weight.. his nappies are doing up a bit tighter these days. Altho I think that happens when they're on the move anyway? I might start a thread somewhere else and ask for advice.

    Maybe I'm not feeding him enough food? I do struggle with what to give him for lunch. hehe. If I give him finger foods, I'm sure not much of it ends up in his tummy... mostly on his lap and on the floor! I don't want to be giving him veges for lunch AND dinner. Any suggestions? He wolfs down fruit, but I think he needs something a bit more substantial. He ate rice cake things (you know those horrible things that are like cardboard!) with avocado and vegemite on them the other day (thanks to mum) but even then, I don't think he actually 'ate' much of it.. coz there was an almighty mess around him!

    Well take care girls, hope the weather is cooler today!

    Liz, Lucy had a week of awful nappies while she had a cold and I thought maybe it was a virus on top of the cold. She's also been waking herself up at night with a dirty nappy every other night. Not sure what's going on, but I think it's a viral thing. Lucy only has 2 teeth and no more in site yet, so I'll blame a bug. Could be something she's eaten too. I give Lucy leftovers or make up a proper dinner at lunch and dinner (including vegies, etc) but I do also give her avocado/vegemite sandwich to eat. Doesn't all get eaten, but she's much better than she was!

    Welcome back, Jen. How are you feeling? Yay at Tayneesha letting you sleep in! I should be so lucky...

    I can see a white swollen gum.. and he chomps on his finger on the side of his mouth a lot, and dribbles and spits everywhere LOL. I don't think it's a bug, coz he's TOTALLY himself otherwise.. it's just the nappies. Mum's picking up some more brauers for me today, so I'll see if that gives him some relief - I wonder if it helps the tummy too? I wonder why teething gives em rotten nappies?

    I gave him rice & veg for lunch today, so at least I know he's eaten.. he didn't want brekky this morning, think he was too tired. But he's happily playing and walking around the furniture. So *shrug*. Just one of those things I guess.

    Yeah, Lucy didn't seem out of sorts at all. The only way I knew she had something was the slight sniffles for two days and then the disgusting nappies. Eating as normal, playing as normal, a couple of long-ish naps, but then, sometimes she does that even when she's fine. But if you can see swelling and a whitish lump then you must be on the money with teeth!! Oh, and 'experts' disagree with each other on the teething thing, some say it doesn't cause runny nappies and some say it does.

    really? LOL - well.. I think I qualify as an expert now.. coz I've dealt with so many! LOL. And he definitely gets these nappies with his teeth!

    Experts, huh?! Don't know what they compare to, every child seems to be different, so I don't know how you can definitively say ALL do or don't react in a certain way! Plus, surely it makes a difference at what stage they start teething. Lucy has only two teeth and she'll obviously be a bit older when the others come through and more capable of 'communicating' so I wonder if that'll make a difference?
