Goodness, your 3rd op ... I guess your problems haven't gone as much as you/your team would like? I hope that all goes well x

As for us, my DD2 has just turned 9mo - can't believe how quickly the time has passed! I healed well from my ELCS; had a minor problem in that I developed a low white blood-cell count which made my recovery slower for a couple of weeks. Thankfully that picked up with a boost of zinc!

The scar looks like only a scratch. It's unbeleiveable. And the good
thing is that it saved my tailbone (and who knows what else) from further damage. It is no worse than before I became pg with DD2.

Lovely talking to you again x Take care x

Molotov!!!! How the devil are you???

Thanks for your reassurance over DD. I spoke to a 'proper mummy' friend last night and she said much the same as you. Apparently there's a very mild tummy bug going round, that has virtually no symptoms at all other than the squits, so it might be that.

All OK-ish here. Heading for my 3rd operation next month. Not happy about it. Pretty much dreading it! But it should be my last. (But we said that about my 2nd operation, so I am somewhat sceptical....).

Hugs and waves! XX

'intermittent', even blush

Hi Cardamom, you won't recognise my new username, but it's Lunarlyte here! <waves> I saw your name and absolutely couldn't read and skidaddle x

Sorry to read that your DD has a runny tummy. I reckon it's either a) a mild tummy bug or b) a symptom of her teething molars.

As she seems otherwise well in herself and is eating and drinking well, I don't think there is a reason to take her to see your GP. Tummy bugs can take a while to completely rid the systems of young children; I wouldn't worry at this point. Good idea to keep your eye on her but it doesn't sound like a cause for concern.

FWIW, my DD1 had a tummy bug that caused internittent d&v a couple of months ago, which lasted for 10 days. She was fine in herself but the stuff came in waves.

Anyway, how are you? I hope that you're well! xx

Looking for a bit of advice about DD, who is 2.4. She's had diahorrea for about 5 days. First day she had 4 episodes, next day and day after she had 2, then she had a gap of 2 days with no poos at all. Today she has had 2 episodes. She has complained 3 times that her tummy hurts, but I don't think it's been that bad because she almost instantly distracted herself by seeing something interesting that she wanted to look at. At the beginning it smelled pretty rank, but now it smells 'normal'. She has had a slight cold in the last week or so. Otherwise, she is absolutely fine Not off her food, completely like herself, no temperature, no rash, no vomiting. Drinking well and having plenty of wet nappies. Her molars have just started to come in and I did wonder whether that had anything to do with it. She is cows' milk protein allergic and that manifests itself as gastric problems, but I would expect to have vomiting too and I've checked with nursery and they are quite sure she hasn't had any dairy products.

So, I don't know what to do with her! Should I take her to the GP? What should I be feeding her? I've been trying to offer a bland diet, but she's pretty fussy at the best of times.

Would be grateful for any thoughts/reassurance!
