    hi everyone

    well we have had a terrible day today May was up at 5:30am and then catnapped and was really unsettled for most of the day hasnt slept any longer then 5-20mins finally went down around 5pm for a decent sleep and still sleeping now.
    i am not sure weather she has started teething as last 2 days has had this redish cheek(which last DD always gets when teething) and really trying to bite on anything she can get her hands on (which i know is also a usual thing for babies this age anyway) DS started teething same age and had teeth by 4 1/2 months so i know it can be possible.
    but then i am not sure if it is a growth spurt as she is feeding alot more then usual anyway so not 100% sure which one it is atm. Hopefully our night isnt the same as today.

    Quick question i know alot of you are breastfeeding but just wondering i have had one AF since having M which was last month and am due now well a little over due i think do you think it is normal for it to be abit late after first cycle back? as i have only had one normal cycle since giving birth.
    I guess i am just being to much of a worry wart as i am scared of getting pregnant again its not like we have dtd a whole lot and when we have we have been very careful as we are waiting for the snip to be done and Dp dosent have an appointment till next month earliest he could get we have been waiting 3 months now hopefully we dont have to wait to much longer after the appointment i cant wait till its done so i dont have to worry so much about falling pregnant again.
    i am hoping everytime i go the toilet AF will be here but not yet.
    ok enough babbling from me just needed to ask what you ladies think i cant remeber really after the others whether it was on time after first cycle etc.
    takecare and hope you are all having a great weekend

    hi all
    just a quick one as I have a ton of housework to do. Cap, after having A I had 1 period at 4 months and then didn't get another one until she dropped to 2 feeds a day at 12 months. Then I only had 2 which were about 35 days apart and then got preg with E. I wouldn't worry too much, I think if you're bfing they can come and go.

    Cap - With Tiana I was breastfeeding and they came back at about 10 weeks and then was regular. However I am sure that it wouldn't be uncommon for it to be out of sorts for a while. Maybe do a test to ease your mind. Stressing about it will hold it off longer!

    While on the subject - TMI Warning - The last 24 hours I have had blood tinged CM. Could this be the start of my period again? I thought the first one back was heavy and this is so far not developing into anything? Any ideas?

    Hi All

    I haven't had AF as of yet, but i think when they are "due" i get a tiny bit of spotting and that's all. It's happened 3 times since E was born. I got my chocolate craving back, so I think they may be "due" soon again too.

    Elijah has been sleeping pretty good at night, still waking for 1 but mostly 2 feeds during the night. He's kinda all over the place sleeping wise during the day too. Depending on what I'm doing during the day. He is drooling alot and sucking on anything that goes near his face. I have had to start putting bibs on him.

    I'm glad that the weather is warming up tho. Pitty the rain is spose to be coming back tomorrow. So I better go and get some washing done...hope you're all having a good weekend!

    Just a quickie from me. Our computer died so I've had to be computer-less til we got another one. Gee, I didn't realise how much I relied on having a computer, it's been a killer not having one!
    B's night sleeps have been up and down. He was going great, then started waking once or twice and needing resettling, then up to 3 times a night and waking for good at 4am, then back to sleeping for 10-11 hours, then last night he woke twice for resettling. He's wanting longer between day feeds too, and some days is having a 1.5-2.5hour sleep, though not every day. Apart from that, he's doing well - lots of drool and sucking too Sleepy! And yep, he's wearing a bib everywhere too!

    No AF here yet either...

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    Hello quick one from me too, feeling bit yuck and have a fair bit of running around/phone calles etc to do for house today.

    No AF back here yet either, though I've had a couple of times I thought it might be making an appearance coz TMI there has been a bit of brown stuff on my undies or toilet paper when I wipe but that's it, back to nothing next time I check

    A is out of whack with her day sleeps and is just feral from about 6pm until I get her into bed at about 8.30pm, so now back on the sleep after two hours awake bandwagon starting today - it seemed to work really well for her so will try again for my own sanity if nothing else lol.

    Hope everyone is doing well

    Hi

    Well E is sick He has a cough and a rattley chest. But he doesnt have a runny nose or anything, so I wont take him to the Dr just yet. But if it gets worse I will. He had alot of trouble going to sleep last night, he was a bit raspy too. I gave him some panadol, and he slept untiil 5am. So that was nice.

    We had a pretty busy weekend, so i'm quite tired today...and its raining so I think I might have to rest today...nice weather for it too..

    Anyway hope you all had a great weekend...

    Cap - It always rains when I put washing out! Did you get your period yet?

    Traylee - Glad you had a nice time away!

    Sleepy- Your poor little bubba, hope he feels better really soon!

    JLeigh - My DH broke my laptop a while ago. I made him go out the next day and buy me a new one.

    Phoenix - DH home today? Have fun!

    Well Miss P has decided that waking only once overnight is not enough! We now have at least 2 wakes for food. She generally settles back to sleep really easily though so I can't complain. I do hope this is only a phase though. We have lots of dribbling and hand sucking here as well.

    I can't believe our babies are 4 months now. It is going so fast!

    Default First Fathers Day

    Hello,

    I am new to this thread. DS born 15 May so we just made it in! DS is great

    Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts for Father's Day gifts. I don't usually go in for these 'commercial' occassions but this one feels special & I want to give DH something for keeps but can't think what to get.

    Any ideas????

    Hi Renee. And welcome!

    I was thinking of buying DH a metal letting or something that can be engraved. That's always nice. Or hand/foot prints framed. We usually do a BBQ, or lunch and DH's favorite food.

    We ended up going to kmart today. I've booked in Elijah at the Dr tomorrow. I'm a bit worried but not sure if she can do anything as he's so young. I know you can't give babies cough medicine until they're at least 2. He's got a rattley chest, but no green/yellow mucus. So that's a good sign it's not an infection. I think Cooper broke his toe as well. But I know the Dr can't do anything much about that. I guess that's boys for ya. Lol. Always in the wars! But being 3 he forgets about it and just keeps playing. Lol

    Anyway better go, better get dinner on. My poor Elijah sounds terrible. I just hope it doesn't turn into croop

    Hi
    welcome renee fathers day i havent really had alot of time to think of gifts yet Older children have made cards etc and have a special fathers day stall at school so they always buy something from there its just the 2 little ones i have to decide on what to get or what to do. My DD was born the 14th May.

    Marni- yes still raining i swear it just rains when i have to take 2 little kids out of the house every week you can gurantee wednesday it will be raining.
    no sign of AF surely cant be far away (i pray) have had sore boobs all day i dont even wanna think that i could be pregnant that wouldnt be a good thing for our family right now might grab a test tommorrow just to ease my mind i think. Is P still off the reflux meds? M is.

    Sleepy- i hope the docs appointment goes well and E is ok i hate when they get any kind of illness. Boys surely will be boys when my DS was around 3 he stood on a nail went straight through and out the other side of his toe and he was stuck to the timber it was on but with in hours he was back running around again.
    goodluck with the docs.

    Traylee- S sounds like she is gaining weight and growing well have you had AF again i know you had it abit before me i think.

    Anyway better feed M and settle her then an early night i hope if DD2 dosent wake with these dreaded teeth.
