I had cerazette before had Oscar. Fab contraception. Just like the implant! I never wanted sex. Ever!!

I need to ovulate to feel like a normal human! Hormones don't treat me well!

I wish they did, it would be soooooooo much easier then!!

Great news kissy reflux has really opened my eyes to how so many (male' late middle aged / elderly) docs know jack sh*t about baby health and care even less about their pain sad many seem very misogynistic dismissing the condition as the figment of silly womens' imaginations. Grrrr makes me so cross!

It sounds like you're onto a good combo there tho if BF you might find that all domperidone does is create lots more poo and a starving baby ( it flushes stomach contents through quicker which can be useful if FF as formula can linger for hours in the stomach) - a day or so on it and you'll know if its helping or hindering.

If that combo isn't working try ranitidine on its own then go for omeperazole and / or diet eliminations. Good luck hon - once you get on the right meds you'll have your baby back to their cute little self within days. It is amazingly quick and wonderfully heartening to see them bounce back.

Now you're on ranitidine thankfully it'll be easier to get omeperazole and to generally be taken more seriously by docs.

lane thank you.

nervous yes. Or at least I am trying to stop doing so. Worked fine with the girls. Fed them to sleep, popped in cot, woken to smiles the next morning. Easy. Not so with the one with a penis.

Detective- glad to hear your DP is bucking up.

Yellow willies welcome back!

Gt they only way LO room got painted was he paid a painter. I was getting very big and it was the only holiday I had and I started to paint. P didn't like that, so I said "are you going to do it?" He didn't but paid a painter. Much easier and hassle free, and he did a much better job then i could ever do. Apparently I cheated P out of his money. he wants me to pay for LO stuff at the mo. the bastard.

Boiler man came today, a valve has gone in a pump. He's not sure if he can get the bit, so it might be a new pump! P did his usual trick of taking charge.

I'll consider bum sex. Not with DP. I'll find a smaller one for that grin.

Erm, one bundle of 2 babygrows, 2 top/bottoms and bibs. Most of that was bnwt. One bundle of 2 leggings and matching tshirt. 2 bundles of 3 babygrows (the next ones that come in packs of 3), then some individual outfits mostly next. And a pair of bootees. Some of the outfits were a bloody bargain! Went for 99p and they had been worn once or not at all! And I've been very careful anal about washing them to make sure they stay in perfect condition! I've never managed to get a current season next outfit for 99 bloody p grrrr!!

TheDetective Mon 21-Jan-13 22:43:00

Put it this way, I sent 10 parcels today. I spent about 5-6 hours washing, ironing, taking pics, listing and revising them a million times as I kept getting it wrong as it was so confusing packaging and going to post office.

YellowWellies Mon 21-Jan-13 22:43:42

grin VQ 'bum sex' titter smile oooooh I've missed you ladies cheering me up during our house move! New rented house is fab but tiny - we've started house hunting - I can't wait for more spaaaaaaaace. On the plus side DH has just got a v good pay rise so much so I nearly fell over when I saw how much the computer claims the bank would lend us! shock

Evilwater Mon 21-Jan-13 22:45:16

I'm on the cerazette pills, I want to come off them, or change them. I got no sex drive at all, and I feel cold all the time. I've also put on a ton of weight despite trying to lose it.
I need to see the drs.

Pikz I was on cerezette for a few years - worked well for me other than causing a few spots but thats more manageable than the hormonal witch I was on the combined pill and after a few months of irregular but light bleeds I had no periods for the duration grin I need to go back on it but no point as can't put LO down for long enough to have even a quick grope let alone dtd.

LO tricked me earlier, wasn't asleep at all but had merely stopped sucking. She has continued feeding ever since. Have retreated to bed with laptop.

evil I would be keen for a meet up, am in Taunton so not sure how far you are (geography not my strong point and CBA to google it as too much effort one handed - sorry)

pass no crisp aromas here!

TheDetective Mon 21-Jan-13 22:46:27

I did the nursery. Easier. For him and me! It's not his forte...! I've done loads of painting over the last 11 years. He has done none!

Yellow willies... I think you should change your name to that wink!

Evilwater Mon 21-Jan-13 22:46:59

Yellow awesome on the money! Pleas send us links to the houses you like so I can sit and use my judgey pants. wink

Kyzordz Mon 21-Jan-13 22:48:00

First night alone, wee everywhere!!! Eek! Not thinking it smells like crisps though!

TheDetective Mon 21-Jan-13 22:48:10

I love a bit of house porn!!!

TheDetective Mon 21-Jan-13 22:49:46

Pass is really letting the crisps get to her grin

For what it's worth sometimes I've smelled strong urine that's been on a nappy for a few hours and I can kinda see what you mean! It does have a distinctive smell!

Evilwater Mon 21-Jan-13 22:50:31

Big, sounds good. Do you have a car? Could we meet half way?

BigPigLittlePig Mon 21-Jan-13 22:50:59

I spent many happy hours partaking in house porn whilst pregnant, culminating in our possibly foolish house move 5 days before LO was born.

MissMummy1 Mon 21-Jan-13 22:52:13

Evil I am shocked and appauled. You were looking for a reason to leave the bastard him, resenting his child is it. The only thing that has saved my DP from some of his arsey moments is the fact he absolutely dotes on DD (and he quickly realises when he's being a twat to me!) Seriously lovely, lots of hugs to you - I can't imagine what a horrible situation you are in. sad thanks xxx

Woohoo on payrise YW - DP has been offered a payrise too (although not of epically jaw dropping proportions and he's haggling for a much bigger increase before agreeing to take on management of bigger boat) but enough to ease my crappy MA worries (slightly!)

BigPigLittlePig Mon 21-Jan-13 22:52:37

Evil I do have a car - where is halfway? blush

Evilwater Mon 21-Jan-13 22:55:25

Mm1 - he's better than he used to be. He is making an effort, and that shows that he wants to be with us. It will be a slow road, and a very fecking long one. wink

Big- half way would be Exeter.

BigPigLittlePig Mon 21-Jan-13 22:57:05

There's someone else who's in Exeter, is it madam?

WHY WON'T MY BABY GO TO SLEEP?????

Evilwater Mon 21-Jan-13 22:59:12

Big- fed, clean nappy, over tired, lonely, and wind. Are my top reason why LO won't sleep.

Evil

BigPigLittlePig Mon 21-Jan-13 23:01:01

It must be overtiredness as she's been awake so long, and it's none of the others. Am at a loss what to do though, as she's swaddled, on my chest, in the dark. At least she's stopped screaming for now

Evilwater Mon 21-Jan-13 23:05:02

I feel for you BIG.
Night all.

I saw your thread last night Sophia - I feel better about it, I think I'll give it a go and see how I get on.

I am very much suffering from cabin fever. I am full of cold and poor DD1 looks like Rudolph! So we haven't left the house in a couple of days. I can't wait for the snow to go either.

If N follows her normal pattern then night will be a bad one - she seems to alternate?! And DP is out early tomorrow so I'll have to get up with DD1 which is usually pretty early.

nervous N feeds to sleep. It's not a deliberate thing on my part, I'm not worrying about it yet. DD1 did the same and she learnt to self settle soon enough.

BigPigLittlePig Mon 21-Jan-13 23:17:20

12 minutes of this and she's in her cot asleep.

Do I need to save my pennies and get a Ewen??!
