    Should I start ? ok well ...I can't keep up with you guys ....I have missed heaps ...well to add to the current conversations,

    a) me and DH are almost back to normal ...the c-section scar kind of freaks me out ( I know ..weird ) but now I am feeling better about my body and less stressed in general ..DH was very patient though and the more he helped out around the home ...the more time I could spend ...you know what.

    b) I would love another baby. Am thinking about TTC. Only thing is that I absolutley love Lugh too bits and I am a bit sad about not having as much time for him ...silly I know cos he'll be bigger. The other thing is that I have always wanted to adopt or long term foster ...so perhaps that's an option, lots to think about.

    Hope all is well ....we are due at Mother's group in 10 mins but Lugh is asleep ...I never ever wake him ...so I suppose we'll go when he's done.

    deciding when to stop will/must be a hard decsion. we have always said we'd only ever have 2, but after sophie was born i'd have 3, but finacially it would be harder and i dont want o ever regret having a third when we always said we wouldnt, but never say never!!!!! we'll see after the next one as much as i cant wait to be pregnant again because it probably will be our last baby i want to savour every moment, as i think i'll be very sad knowing i wont be preggers again, hope that makes sence!!!
    i just love spending time with sophie i want to enjoy her a little linger by herself be fore enbarking on the next baby journey, having said that we said we'd like to try again when she's one and that's only 6 months away!!! very scary!!!

    also cant wait to hear about cheries story, i'd be glad if i were her not to be pushing out an 11pd baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    thanks guys, feeling much better about 'strained relationships'. wierd...been having mega cramps today altho still no AF, so that probably makes sense as to why i was feeling so blue this morning i must say dh and i have always been good at talking about things. i think we know each other better than we know ourselves half the time. I hate venting about him tho because i dont want ppl to get the wrong idea about him, ykwim? i usually talk to his mum or his sister, but that can only go so far, then i feel like i tell myself that its not that important and to let it go but then i just get mad and dont want to be mad at him but need to vent and so the cycle continues! (whoa sorry...thats a field day for any psychologist out there!)
    I cant wait to have another baby either, which is good considering there is no AF yet...test was neg a while ago but cant bring myself to do another one!
    My cheeky monkey is so quick at turning over now but because of her reflux problems she has quite a spew when she does so. i just went to check on her (shes meant to be napping) and there she was on her belly with spew EVERYWHERE! and as i picked her up she giggled at me! what a clown!

    *wah* Jovie has refused my breasts since yesterday, so my last feed off my breasts was at 4.30am yesterday... she just screams in hunger and refuses to even touch her lips to my breasts. I've tried all the ABA techniques and all our failsafe tricks but she just won't. I think having the 12 hours of bottles she just decided she prefers them. The other thing is my supply has diminished too, I can only get around 20-40mls per expressing time... so in the 6 times today I've gotten just over 1 bottle .... I'm going to go drink a bottle of wine now and grieve.... too bad it feels like my bb's are exploding but nothings coming out. Feeling pretty sorry for myself, I just said to DH "some birthday present..." I think I'll let myself feel bad for a why....

    It makes me so sad because I love breastfeeding and want too....

    oh Christy no! don't feel so down, honey. I dont really know what to say to make you feel better but i just want you to be happy.
    i went to pick dh up from work and evie SCREAMED the whole 40mins. my heart was breaking. by the time we got there and i could comfort her she was shaking and vomiting everywhere. oh i feel so terrible .she slept in the car on the way home so she's missed her bath time and is all out of whack. still asleep so i'll see what happens....i have a feeling i'm in for a bad night - but it's all my fault for stuffing her around. too much time in the car today. *bad mummy guilts creeping in*

    CHRISTY enjoy that bottle of wine!!!! i've just cracked one my self, going down well with the maccas i just ate!!! are you using an electric or manual pump? i pumped on monday and only got 100ml, which i know sounds a lot compared to your 40 mls but the pump isnt anywhere near as efficient as sophie!! could that be the same case for you?

    TARA dont feel bad hun :hugs: we all throw our bubs out of whack, just remember it's just one day, tomorrows a new one, and you didnt upset her deliberatly!!
