    Well we're back from the clinic and Kaitlyn's only put on 140g in three weeks. The nurse said its okay though. So she's now up to 7.4kg and 66cm long.



    Hows everyone else's bubba's doing?

    Darcy was 6.9kg last week. They start to plateau about now don't they?

    Anyone feel like taking my armour and slaying the Dragon tonight? I'm not up to the battle today :sigh:

    ETA she screamed and got so worked up she managed to get out from under the sheet and then wouldn't put her feet down so i could tuck it in, so I left her and she went to sleep uncovered. I don't think I'll ever 'get' her.

    Ok ladies thanx for all thinking of us, it has been a big couple of weeks, but we are finally seeing sum progress.

    So yes we went to hospital and he had blood tests/poo tests/barium swallow - we saw a dietician and a speech pathologist.

    The nurses were meant to watch us feed but do you think one did, nope!!! Useless useless useless, but they were nice guess that makes up for it!

    So anyway all test results came back that he is really healthy which is the main thing. The barium swallow showed how bad his reflux is which we knew!

    So the dietician gave us polyjoule (like a glucose) to put in his bottles to increase his calorie intake and we have to continue with 1 1/4 strength formula.

    I have always used slow flow teats in hope that he wouldn't get it too fast and would keep some down, but appears he has adapted himself in such a way that he sucks so so fast and gets alot of wind and that is why he always thought he was full. This is the conclusion of the speech pathologist, which she is kinda right but he still refuses his feeds at times even on the medium flow teats, and been trying a couple of different brands to date also.

    But all in all he has been much better still only averaging 700mls a day, somedays he will get up to 760ml and other days he is more around the 600mls per day. He is not as angry with the bottle so guess the teats are to thank for that, so this is huge progress.

    Saw the paed today and he just gathers that his problem is that he is still associating his reflux pain to feeding and that medicine way back when (that they mixed up wrong - being white in colour - he has a long memory), did not help. This is when Wade and I noticed all our problems started. Reflux babies are fussy feeders but he is extreme and trying to feed him is just so stressful. But again he is much much better and I am so thankful!

    On a really good note he gained 300g in a week (so now weights 5.86kgs), unheard of, a new world record for our boy! So everything we are doing is heading in the right direction. So the paed finally agrees with me that (even thou I am happy he did all the tests just to make sure), that he is not fussed on milk (too smart to remember about that medicine all that time ago), is way too active, throws up heaps and is only drinking just enough to keep him going and not gain any excess weight. I told him all this, lol, but no I am still happy he did the tests. He has now gone back to the 5th percentile and as long as he stays there the doctor is happy.

    It was always confusing for me that he was doing so well, was really content and energetic with everything that was going on, but we just have to accept it.

    The doctor has finally also given me some meds to stop him throwing up sooo much, finally!!!! As he throws up soooo much I am sure he is just sick of throwing up also.

    So all is well here, still a fussy feeder but no way near as bad.

    Started him on fair dinkim solids on Monday. Started him on farex a mth ago but he wasn't real interested. Just don't tell my sister the dietician ok, she will give me the big lecture re: allergies and you shouldn't start before 6mths, but she is not a mother and I know what my son needs, I can see a big improvement in him since we started. I have started on pumpkin and sweet potato and apple for desert. Loves apple, so much but not real fussed on the other, been tricking him and putting a little apple in with pumpkin and sweet potato, don't know if I should but hey he eats it. I think the big mistake was when wade's sister gave him apple cause she had made sum first and now he has a sweet tooth, bugger!!!!! We were just happy to get something down at the time, grrr..... if only I had of thought in advance. Oh well!

    Developmentally he is rolling from belly to back, more through pure determination as he always hated his tummy so much. I really haven't pushed the tummy time thing as he always screamed! So there you go, I have one determined kid, within 10 seconds he is over. And the other night when from back to belly by accident and straight back again, cheeky little devil.

    Also the paed told me today when he saw lachie holding his feet in his hands and pulling them up towards his mouth that that was a 6 month development stage, so he is doing really well, but he has been doing that since he was 4 mths old. He can kind of sit up hunched right forward. Interacting with his toys so much better, more interest and passing from one hand to the other and if he sees one he wants he does what he can to get it on the floor.

    So finally one happy mumma here, although he is sleeping terrible at night at the moment, gosh I don't know how you do it Cosmic, boy last night was the worst night we have had with him in soooo long, I could hardly function today. We visited Tania and Jayden today that was really nice and got sum really cool pictures.

    Ok better get off to bed I guess, hope everyone is well, I read all the posts last night and then run out of time to post myself.

    Will try to keep up from now on.

    Oh and before I forget Kim, it would be interesting to see who is more active Darcy or Lachlan, boy I hate to think what he will be like when he is moving around, gosh am I going to loose sum weight! I think I am tired now, boy I am in for a rude shock. I just have fear that he will be running around won't have time to eat and I will be cutting things up in small pieces and shuving bits in his mouth as he runs past - GAWD I HOPE NOT!!!!! Hope things are ok with you and your scan results come back all good.

    Hello
    I am only new to the May 06 baby forum so hi to everyone. I am looking forward to sharing stories and tips with all of you.
    Hope everyone gets a good nights sleep tonight. It is a very hit and miss affair for us - I never know what he is going to do at night. !
    Talk to you all soon.

    Ooo I wonder if I can do a really quick post I am sooo tired!!

    Leanne: Don’t feel silly about getting it checked out….I would feel even sillier if I didn’t get it checked out and it was CP…I think you did the responsible thing YAY for the eBay win!! A small weight gain is still a gain….I think Kim is right my CHN said they plateau around this age…..Kaitlyn is heavier than Jayden LOL he was 6.41kg at his last weigh in last week.

    Kim: I hope your enjoying your girls night in! I saw a cute “baby’s 1st xmas” ornament in Target for $20 I am thinking about getting it….But I’ll have to be quick LOL.
    Great to hear your U/S was bulk billed but how did you go? Did they say anything about it?

    Sara: I’m going back P/T 4hrs a day 5 days a week…..Not my ideal but my job is really F/T so I’m lucky really to be able to go back P/T. Sorry about MSN today too my laptop has almost had it…I really should start using the PC with the new monitor hehe

    Sheree: Sorry I missed you again…SIL#1 and niece left when I was talking to you and Nat but SIL#6 ended up staying for dinner so I didn’t get near the computer haha Friday is set then but I’ll chat to you tomorrow.

    Jemima: Hi there and welcome to BB and May 06 thread….Its great to have new ppl in here! I hope your little one sleeps well for you tonight! My DS Jayden is sound asleep hopefully until at least 7.30am. A little about myself…..I’m 27 and my DP Chris is 30 we have been together for OMG 9.5 yrs!! We were living in Melbourne (that’s were I am from) and we moved to Bundy about 18mths ago, we bought a house had a baby and now my life is complete LOL well almost. Can’t wait to get to know you!!

    Now for us….We had an early start this morning 5.30am!! And my naughty little boy wouldn’t go back to sleep so mummy had to stay up too! Sheree and Lachie came for a visit OMG has Lachie packed on the weight…I nearly dropped him because he is so much heavier than when we visited him in hospital! Sheree I think the photos were great too! And by pure coincidence, Jayden and Lachie were wearing exactly the same shorts and top today…..it made for some gorgeous photos….I will put them up on Jayden’s website in the next few days. I didn’t do much for the rest of the day SIL#1, niece and SIL#6 came over….SIL#6 stayed for dinner and just left about half hour ago. Anyway now I have to crack DP’s back Grrrr…I hate doing it haha

    Have a great girls

    Wow, it's been aaaages since I've posted in this forum. It's 2.38 as I start this post, so I don't have the energy to get into personals...but
    Sheree - great to hear about Lachie, and glad that you have some progress. Must be such a relief.

    Jemima - welcome to the May babies. These girls are all really lovely. Glad you can join in!

    Leanne - Glad that it's not CP. My husband is allergic to mosquitos. If he gets bitten he welts up (we've even taken him to the hospital in the past). It's kinda funny to see. You should see the fun & games we have in summer when we go to bed and hear the buzzing sounds. He jumps up with magazine in hand and I look out for the blighters! It's only Australian mosquitos that bother him. I reckon they love his Jewish blood! You asked about $5m... If I was to win that much I would pay for all my husbands immediate family to come and visit us (from Israel). If they couldn't all come, then we would go over there for a decent holiday (and a few other countries!). I would buy a bigger house in a better suburb. And I would buy some investment flats/units for future income. I don't think there would be much change left after that.

    That's good to hear Vic! Darcy likes sport too....don't know why, Cam and I are definitely not sporty people.

    Welcome Jemima.

    Sheree, so glad to hear some positives. I won't tell Darcy how light Lachie is, she might get a complex LOL. Great to hear he's putting on weight though. Would be interesting to see them together - might wear each other out.....

    We also had a good night last night....she must know when I think I can't take any more. Slept til 2.20 and then back to sleep until 6. However at 2.20 I went in there and couldn't find her until she laughed! She was at the top of the bed! The I couldn't find the wrap either, but she had pushed it right to the bottom of the bed. Funny Kid.

    Sold my other bird cage on Ebay! woohoo. Bit sad though cos it was the ****ies cage.

    Hi everyone

    What sort of day are you all having today? I love Thursdays as we have playgroup in the morning and that keeps my two year old happy which in turn makes me happy and a happy mummy is very important!

    Just a bit about me/us - married to DH with two beutiful sons - the oldest is two years and 2 months and the youngest is 5 months (9/5/06).

    We tried for quite a while to conceive with no luck - saw many Drs, specialists etc who all quoted "unexplained infertility" as the cause, which was very frustrating as I would almost have rathered there was a name put to why we couldnt get pregnant so we could try fixing it. Anyway we started IVF in 2003 - first attempt I was told I wasnt pregnant and then a day later was told yes you are, but my progesterone level was very very low so they thought it might be ectopic, but it wasnt so they said well maybe this pregnancy is going to be OK, but I miscarried at about 7 weeks.
    We tried IVF the following month, with no success which was very depressing especially as I found out I wasnt pregnant on the day of my 30th birthday.

    Then wouldnt you know it I got pregnant naturally the following month with my first son. I had a great pregnancy - minor PE but nothing major and he was born naturally - all in all a fantstic experience.
    Fell pregnant again with second son - very similar pregnancy and had a great natural/drug free birth. I can say great now but at the time I was thinking oh my ******** what have I done!!

    Since DS birth in May we have been on a roller coaster of emotions and stresses as DS has been very very unsettled and we have spent a lot of time with paeds, CAFHS, hosptials to try and work out what is going on. Silent reflux, allergies have all been quoted and we have tried medication for all of these, with little success, but something amazing has started to happen!! Over the past couple of weeks (touch wood) he has started to become a much happier, settled baby and is now sleeping quite well and is now a great feeder! I have my fingers crossed we a re over the worst of it and we can focus on enjoying him.

    Well I have gone on for long enough but wanted to introduce myself and tell my story - albeit a condensed version.

    Has anyone started their may baby on solids yet? I was only thinking this morning that it wont be too far away for us.

    I had best run as they are both asleep and I am going to vege out for a while!!

    Hello Jemina, welcome to May babies. You'll be addicted in no time at all and the ladies on here are some of the lovliest ladies I have met.

    Another 9 May baby!! That makes four of us!! How exciting. And a boy too.

    Scrappyfish (Kim) is Darcy's mum, Mummy4life is mum to Phoebe and I'm mum to Kaitlyn...

    You've found the right place to go, especially when you are having a [email protected]$%y day or your hubby is ticking you off. It's a great venting place. It's also great to talk to the other mums and hear that you're not alone when it comes to babies with their cranky pants on. There's been some great funny stories on here too.

    I am suffering with post natal depression and I don't think I would be 'getting over it' as well as I am without the girls on here.

    I have not really started Katy on solids yet, but she's had the occasional munch on a milk arrowroot bikky or a couple of spoons of stewed pureed pears. She has to be in the mood to eat, and reading that I find hard.

    Well, we had a good day today. Went for a walk around the regatta centre (5 km) this morning which took just under an hour, and then came home and did the washing. The pest man came and said we don't have a termite problem so that made for some happy news.

    Katy's been grumpy but I should not complain as the last weeks she's been pretty good. It's a little humid today so I am putting it down to heat .... or could be another growth spurt, or that "T" word - teething.

    Anyway, be back later. gotta go watch "THE BOLD". I am a shocker aren't I?

    Hi Girls,

    Welcome to BB and May Babys 06 Jemima. Great to see some new faces. Let me tell you a little about myself...I am 22 and have been with my partner Brent for 6 years. We are the proud parents of a little girl, Briley. Although Briley was born on 5 June i spent the journey of my pregnancy with the May girls as Briley's orginal EDD was 30 May. I hope that you enjoy your time here with us...we are an AWESOME bunch of ladies/mummy's!!

    Sheree - I am sooooo glad the Lachie is doing better. It must be a big weight of your shoulders. He seems to be a very happy little man from your posts. Hope all stays on the good streak for you. I was just wondering...How did Wade react to all that was happening?? Was he you tower of strength?? You just never mentioned wether you had any back-up/support during all this stuff thats all!!

    Kim - Ohhhhh How cute!! Laughing at 2.20am. Thats funny. Did you laugh back??? Does she laugh properly?? Briley only laughs sometimes. Not just out of the blue like that though. Its too cute though when she does!! Glad you had a good night lastnight. I did'nt!! You would'nt believe it...I bloody forgot to get that stuff when i went shopping today :mad:!!! And i forgot the teething gel too!! My mind is everywhere but today!!

    Tania - Thats cool!! I thought something must've went down! How weird that Lachie and Jayden wore the same outfit yesterday...spooky man!!!

    Not much new to report here. Mum brought Briley the cutest hair clips and 2 sweat band that say princess!! They are sooo cute. We went shopping today with mum and sis and sis was making Briley laugh and squel so loud in the food court. Man it was cute.

    Got house warming this wkend as i have prolly said about a millon and one times!! I am stressin big time. I just want it too all go to plan and not be a shambles!!

    Hope all is well with everyones else...

    Might BBL

    Ciao

    Hey Jemima glad you expanded a bit. What's bubby's name? Well a few of us were busy 9 May.
    I'm Darcy's mum, Kim. She is mine and DHs first bub and a bit of a cyclone. She has reflux and is really really really active, doesn't sleep much (I'm regularly up 40+ times a night) and is generally a noisy cyclone! She's quite a determined little character who's held her head up since she was born - when they pulled her out she could support her own head, and supported her own wieght since about 4 weeks. I'm preparing for a long long time of being worn out.
    We aren't on solids yet, still b/feeding nicely. She will take water from a cup though. No teeth either and she refuses to roll anywhere since I dropped her on her head about a month ago (it was an accident - I'm not a bad mum on purpose LOL).

    Sara, no I didn't laugh back - she's such a houdini. She does laugh at nothing though and is becoming SO noisy! She squeals so loud in the shopping centre, it's embarrassing. You are a dag though. Stop stressing or you won't be able to enjoy your party. Sometimes the best fun is had when plans go awry.

    I did get a beautiful ornament today (OK so I'm obsessed). It's a Russ one - you know he makes those cute bears and fluffy toys. It was 20 bucks though! I plan to buy all my kids an ornament every year so that when they leave home they have a little collection.

    Oh and they sold my ****ie too....so he's gone for good.

    Hi me again!

    forgot to say my may babys name is Jesse!

  15. #87

    Default

    Hopefully just a quick one from me tonight

    Jemima: You and your DH have certainly been through a rough time with TTC, thats great its happy ending with your 2 boys. How was your first DS when he was born? Was he an unsettled bub like Jesse? I hope Jesse stays settled for you know. I was lucky from the start with Jayden, he has been a pretty good sleeper day and night although we did go through a phase of about a month where he was waking a few times a night and started cat napping during the day....finally I understood what a lot of the other girls were going through...Thank god he is back to sleeping through again.

    We haven't started solids yet....I am thinking it will be soon though as Jayden was being breastfed but we have had so many issues with it since birth, I was on meds to increase my supply and now I am off them my supply has dropped again so he is now part breastfed and part formula fed. Part of me is excited for him to try new foods and the other part doesn't want him to get to the next stage and to stay a little baby LOL

    Anyway I better go put clothes in the dryer and get myself off to bed....we are going on out longest trip since Jayden has been born tomorrow....All the way to Gin Gin to visit Sheree and Lachie....LOL its really only 40mins(approx) but its the first time we have been out of town since Chris and I went to Melb when I was 29 weeks PG!!
    Nighty night girls....More personals when I get home tomorrow
