Hello everyone..marking place...AGAIN. I love reading all your posts daily..even if I've not got much to say myself.

Kyzordz Mon 21-Jan-13 21:18:16

Sounds like you've had a barrel of laughs pr! I bet they all have days like that though, all mini persons I know of are/were quite capable of being menaces!

izzy and I thought my LO was a big chap lol! Not quite on par with yours!! The way I see it though is if they've a little extra, they can afford to lose it when ill. Not encouraging overweight babies at all, just that it seems better to perhaps be a touch over rather than under iyswim.

VQ it's scary stuff isn't it? I'm lying here listening to LO breathe and feel I'm back to the mess I was when he was very small and I couldn't sleep in case something happened to him. Logic is telling me he was wide awake and choked on water, not asleep and struggling for no reason, but my head is pounding and I feel edgy since earlier. I'm glad J is ok, it seems to scare the life out of them, the poor mites!

Thankyou rowing for your comment on the previous thread, I did see it but the thread ran out.

Plan on waking LO up at 11pm at the latest for a last feed because I'd rather not wake at silly o clock again! DP has left for work, literally just, and Eric is wide awake now. Bugger.

Ok. Feel a little more chilled out.

So AIBU ? FYI I'm not H last night said its better for us to decorate nursery when we come bk from India. We don't go for 5 weeks. There is nothing else more urgent that needs doing ATM. And I don't want to wait 10 weeks! He has already been putting it off since LO was born.

If we paint now. LO can carry on sleeping with us until paint smell fades.
If we paint after India LO will be too big for crib so we will have to move cotbed into our room. Leaving little space.
He wants to set up cotbed. Get LO sleeping in there now. But I think then disrupting him after India will cause us problems. I feel like once he is moved into his room we stick with it.

H reasoning. Pil will still be in India so won't interfere. Comments like why r u changing the curtains. But pil know we plan to paint. N we have had no comments about that. So y not just go ahead with that part? So the hard part is done.

Ps H has form on this. I moved in over 2 years ago and still haven't redecorated our bedroom as promised before I moved in. Grr.

He was being a dick this morning. But I broke n got in bed sobbing so he quietly took LO away.
Then again, being a prick , about LO crying N I walked out of the room. Told him I was having a shower n he could deal with LO however he wanted. Felt bad for LO hmm but figured TOUGH I need a shower I can b selfish for once.

Ok feed time shock

eBay is shit. All that work for £23 then paypal and eBay take a good old chunk of it. As my favourite saying goes... Fuck that shit!!

Kyzordz Mon 21-Jan-13 21:31:04

Sounds like you might aswell get the decorating done now gt surely moving cotbed about room to room n rushing to do it after India is more work n hassle than necessary?

Sophiathesnowfairy Mon 21-Jan-13 21:35:49

Sorry you have had a bad day pr enjoy your downtime.

daisychain76 Mon 21-Jan-13 21:42:16

Does sound sensible to decorate first. GT. If my. dh is dragging his feet l tell him l am organising someone to come in andd do it. He hates the thought of that and gets in with it!

I am on about 10th night of trying to put H down to sleep at 7/7.30. Which means sitting feeding him til 9.30/10 in our bedroom. l have TV on rreally quietly to stop me going insane but lights low, switch TV off andd Ewan on when l put him in cot. He has bath, story with dcs and in grobag. What else can l do??? He us 17 weeks, 10 corrected, so surely he doesn‘t need so much cluster feeding. l really want my evenings back!

Evilwater Mon 21-Jan-13 21:42:46

Well, we can talk!
I live near Plymouth, if anyone's for a meet up. I also have a car.

LO is sleeping in his own room, in his own cot, and slept through the night OMG!!!! My sister helped with bath time last night and it was so much better. He only screamed half the time he normally does grin.

Went to a baby club, and he boldly well slept through that too! Shame so many babies, he would have loved to show off.

Passmethecrisps Mon 21-Jan-13 21:43:36

Is it normal for baby wee to smell like beef crisps?

YellowWellies Mon 21-Jan-13 21:45:48

That ranks as the most random sentence I've seen typed on here pass! smile

Sophiathesnowfairy Mon 21-Jan-13 21:47:41

gt I agree with kyz however you need to decide if it is worth arguing over? It may be. But it might not be worth the hassle as you are the one who will end up getting stressed out about it. Obviously if you need to put the cot bed up and it doesn't go through doors, which most don't I don't think, then you could just stress to H, calmly, that he will have to put it up, take it down and put it up again and wouldn't it just be easier for him to sort out the room and be done with it.

I walked, in the snow, 40 mins each way, with double buggy and bulging changing bag, to mums and toddlers today. Hardly anyone else turned up which was nice actually.

My right leg might fall off though.

kirrin and someone else who was thinking about the Mirena, in desperation I started a thread in Health/ family planning, begging for positive experienes. I got loads of responses and feel better about it. Have a look. I will try to link.

Sophiathesnowfairy Mon 21-Jan-13 21:49:52

passi will check when I do the 10pm nappy changehmm

Passmethecrisps Mon 21-Jan-13 21:53:22

grin but it's true. P's pee smells like beef crisps.

rowingdowntheriver Mon 21-Jan-13 21:56:58

Another thread?! Already?! Will be back at some ridiculous time to chat!

kissyfur Mon 21-Jan-13 22:08:44

Caught up on last thread, now gonna start on this one..,

Good news about your DS blonder smile

finally got somewhere with getting some proper treadment for LOs reflux today, saw a lovely doctor who prescribed domperidone and ranitidine. LO had to be weighed for the dosage to be worked out, she's 13.5lb at 9 weeks, my little chunk grin

I've a good mind to complain about the doctor we saw last time who said any other meds than gaviscon had to be prescribed by a specialist! Glad I went back for a second opinion

pikz Mon 21-Jan-13 22:14:09

Now intrigued about beef crisps.

Bedtime for me. See you at the first feed.

On the mirena, I had a good experience apart from the weight gain and if I didn't want another in the next couple of years I would have one again. Weight gain manageable just harder work.

In that vain doc wants me on cezette mini pill...anyone else on it?

Sophiathesnowfairy Mon 21-Jan-13 22:15:22

Right pass I'm going in for a sniff...........

ChunkyChicken Mon 21-Jan-13 22:21:02

Trying to decide what to do tomorrow. Car completely covered in snow, so will be a PITA to dig out with the 2DC around and I'm on my own. Also the snow shovel and salt etc are no doubt in the garage at the end of the garden, so its all a big palaver. But there is nothing to do in (easy) walking distance from my house. I could return DS's too big cot mattress and somehow walk it around to the post office and maybe take dd to the library. Desperately need to get out but it is such a hassle.... Grr.

GT thank you - didn't realise it was the last post. He is such a smiley, happy content baby. I am blessed. Dd was the same - chilled and happy to be cuddled by anyone!!
Don't get stressed about the room. Does your DH want to get LO in his own room before you go to India? Surely its easier to decorate with no furniture in it? But I like daisy's suggestion smile

Kyzordz Mon 21-Jan-13 22:21:51

LOL sophia!! Have odd image of you with a face full of soggy nappy! Not that I know what you look like but still!

I'll have a sniff too, waiting for LO to wake, he's farting like a trooper but nothing else just yet!

TheDetective Mon 21-Jan-13 22:22:02

I farted and it made me almost cry. In pain, nothing else!! Seriously. It felt what I can only imagine being rammed up the arse with a cattle prod might feel like.

Sick of it.

Whinge a lot, sorry! Still, on the bright side, today I did the school run in the snow. Travelled 7 miles. Only 25 kids made it in. I thought
I was great going to all that effort. Ds1 hated me grin. I believe his teacher gave him extra maths sheets to work on mwhahaha!!

My mum was the only head in the county to open the school today! Crazy woman was out at 7.30 digging a path to the school!

Also, I left Oscar with DP for the school run and I was gone for a good 90 minutes. When I left they were asleep. When I got home they were awake and Oscar was feeding. Now. This means that the fucking bastard DOES wake up when he cries. I'm not having that he doesn't!! He clearly did when I wasn't bloody there to do it! Oh and to make me feel even better, DP did the feed at 5am, and spent 2 hours feeding followed by begging Oscar to sleep haha! I felt not one ounce of guilt as I lay there pretending to be asleep. grin

You've been busy I see in my absence today! Will endeavour to catch up properly tomorrow! It's jabs day though so not holding out much hope! And DP is in work so it's all down to me!!

ChunkyChicken Mon 21-Jan-13 22:22:38

Oh and excellent news blonder glad the weight is going in the right direction.

ValiumQueen Mon 21-Jan-13 22:28:42

pass did you do a pg test? Morning sickness and now strange smells?

I am back on my correct side of the bed now cot is gone. If I hear J cry DH may well end up with a nipple in his gob before I realise. I think he is hoping so.

NotSoNervous Mon 21-Jan-13 22:29:52

Does anyone feed there LOs to sleep?

PennieLane Mon 21-Jan-13 22:30:35

That's brilliant blonder! Glad all the expressing/top ups worked!

VQ, I think having one bottle definitely helps. Well done on dismantling, fingers crossed for a good night for you soon!thanks

I've just started on Cezette today as rec by GP, will let you know how I find it. Wanted the coil but surgery doesn't do it and CBA with the hassle of arranging it. Will see how pill goes.

ValiumQueen Mon 21-Jan-13 22:33:20

Detective how many items for that amount, and how much money did you end up with? Sorry, just being nosy. Sorry about your arse. Perhaps a bit of bum sex would help? Loosen things up a bit?
