As I so frivolously finished the last thread, I thought I'd better start a new one. Go!

glorious Wed 23-Oct-13 10:58:08

New thread, hooray!

Thanks for the good wishes meringue and angielka. fingers crossed the boss does say that, I haven't got through yet.

glorious Wed 23-Oct-13 11:49:22

Not quite as good as all that but I do have my new hours provisionally agreed smile

Ooh, shiny! So sorry to hear about your mum glorious hope it's all a mountain out of a molehill and she's fine.

Well, progress in Cupcake towers. I just rang the HVs again about DS' sleep - last night we had awful screaming until 11pm, when I finally co-slept and he spent the night propped up against my tummy. Didn't expect much help as my HV is useless, but she's on a course so I was directed to a different HV, who listened to me for about 2 minutes and promptly said it sounds like classic reflux and get him to the doctor ASAP. We're off to the sit and wait clinic this afternoon so maybe, just maybe, we'll be sorted out.

Don't really know whether to be relieved that somebody finally listened to me or unbelievably sad that DS has quite possibly been in a lot of pain all this time. sad

Fingers crossed for you cupcakes, don't beat yourself up, you weren't to know. And for you and your mum glorious.

Not a great night here, up from 3 until 5 and then I couldn't get back to sleep so have pretty much been awake since 3, with loads to do today. And now a nap refuser.

Had a huge row this morning, because I'm mental and crazy and unreasonable because I don't want this girl staying over the night of the works christmas do. "Oh I've already told her now". Well fucking untell her!

Love the name change pascha. Don't think I need a halloween themed change grin

CreepyCrawly Wed 23-Oct-13 12:00:14

And thanks for the new thread angie. I echo the SIX?!

lollipoppi Wed 23-Oct-13 12:40:37

Hope your mums ok glorious! thanks

Cupcakes that's great hope you get some answers at the doctors! Not so great on the girl staying at your house front, do you know her that well?

lollipoppi Wed 23-Oct-13 13:37:13

Sorry, sleep deprived! I meant to say creepy not so great on the girl front! Sorry cupcakes!

Tugstonia Wed 23-Oct-13 13:56:39

Cripes, thread 6! Thanks for the new thread Angie.

Just trying to catch up with everyone's news as haven't been on for a while. flowers to you and your mum glorious, do hope she's ok. and flowers to creepy and cupcakes as well. Hope your DHs get their shit together, and hope the HV sorts out your DS sleep cupcakes.

DD slept for 12.5 hours last night without waking! This is after about a week of waking every hour until midnight and then waking up for the day at 5am... She then projectile vomited this morning in the car on the way back from Sainsbury's sad I think she's carsick rather than sick sick, poor little mite. And now the car stinks

Bunty how is your DD now?

DD's still not interested in crawling/moving. She loves the door bouncer though. Her latest thing is pointing. And giving me big, slobbery kisses smile

CreepyCrawly Wed 23-Oct-13 14:18:26

I do know her, but I'm not comfortable with her and DH's friendship. Especially because the plan is - she comes here with DH after work to get ready, we all go out for food. I come home after eating to relieve mil of babysitting duties while they stay out and get a taxi back. Tell me I'm not being unreasonable to not be happy with that arrangement!

Way to go on the sleep tugs, car sick is shit though. I had it so bad for years. Love the pointing and kisses grin Nancy has started scrunching her nose up and now breathing heavily, a bit like a demon haha

lollipoppi Wed 23-Oct-13 15:28:58

YANBU! stupid planning on behalf of your DH, and stupid arse for even thinking this is ok!

It's ds1 birthday tomorrow he will be 3,
Even more shocking is that DD will be 1 in 13 weeks!!! shockshockshockshock Where has the time gone??

Creepy I agree with the others, your DH is being a plonker. Does he realise it's not on and just not care, or genuinely not see the issue?

tugs I swear by ginger for car sickness (biscuits, cake, whatever). Used to run a brownie pack and whenever we went on coach trips I would hand out ginger biscuits before we left. Never had a girl be sick - not even the ones who we were told had chronic travel sickness.

So after 2 hours waiting to see the GP we finally got in - he actually didn't seem convinced it was reflux on the basis that DS is never sick (isn't that why they call it silent??), but I think realised I wasn't leaving until he did something so he prescribed gaviscon. Gave DS a dose tonight and when I tipped him back to start rocking him he went to scream as usual, then just looked really shocked and lay quietly in my arms and went to sleep. Maybe we will actually make progress. I don't even care if he still wakes up every two hours - so long as he doesn't wake up screaming as if he's in agony!

Happy Birthday to your DS Lolli

Creepy, what is your DH playing at, you need to tell him that she is not staying as neither will he be if he carries on with this shit. Wonder how he would feel in role reversal situ?!

Glorious big hugs and best wishes to you and your poor mummy thanks

Cupcakes, my DD1 had silent reflux and was hardly ever sick. Feel so sorry that if it is, it wasn't picked up on sooner but main thing now is they are listening. If gaviscon seems to not be working after a while ask for stronger meds. Also may want to add some prunes and other 'bowel movers' into his diet as it can be do constipating. Wish him well x

Not much going on here, DD2 sleeping much better and is standing unaided for about 30 seconds before carefully sitting down. bet she won't walk for ages

Week one of half term is nearly over and DH back tom grin

Angielka Thu 24-Oct-13 12:19:07

Happy birthday to DS lolli DD1 was 3 at the end of September. Can't believe I'm grown up enough to have such a big daughter!

MIL is staying. I popped out for a coffee with my maternity replacement this morning and just before I left, she put Molly on the sofa and walked away to find a toy to give her... I shouted calmly pointed out that Molly can now crawl and perhaps putting her on the floor might be safer than the sofa. If we make it to Monday without me losing it, it will be a miracle smile

Angielka Thu 24-Oct-13 12:19:38

How was the night cupcakes?

Tugstonia Thu 24-Oct-13 14:43:40

Ok so I think DD actually was sick sick rather than carsick... My neighbours have all had this D&V bug going round and I've had very dodgy tummy too for the last 24 hours sad Grim.

Our 12.5 hour record sleep was indeed a one-off. Last night madam wouldn't settle and was up countless times after midnight.

Cupcakes how was your night?

Angie shock at your MIL leaving Molly on the sofa!

YANBU Creepy, sorry your DH is being thick. He needs to put himself in your shoes.

Our night was quite good. Did the bed time routine and when I lay him back in my arms to rock him to sleep he wrinkled up his face and started to scream but after literally a second he just stopped, looked a bit shocked, closed his eyes and went to sleep. Normally he screams for up to an hour before dropping off. He then woke at 9pm and 10pm, but then went until 3.30am. Woke for the day at 7.20. No screaming at any point so I'm happy with that!

I'm supposed to give it a week then make an appointment with the GP to discuss long term treatment.

Our dogs have started going into DS' room to check on him before we go to bed. So cute.

CreepyCrawly Thu 24-Oct-13 18:04:52

Thanks all. He's being a bit of a dick. He asked me to think about it, we might be rock solid by then and it'll be fine for her to stay. It's 100% not happening.

Happy birthday littlelolli! Hope he had a fab day.

Yikes at your mil angie! They move so quick now don't they, can't be left for a second. Lucky you were still there to tell her!

Hope you're both better soon tugs

Yay on a better night cupcakes, hopefully it'll continue. Dogs are great aren't they! Mine nudges Nancy when she's crawling towards something she shouldn't be. And tries to swap toys with her. He's just been making her laugh by sniffing her toes

angiel it must be a generational thing. My step mum tried to sit DS on a kitchen stool a few months back (when he was only about 6 months old) and wondered off! Thank god I was right there to grab hold of him. She managed to raise three children of her own but I guess they had a few bumps and bruises along the way!

Creepy I have to say even my DH thinks your DH is being a dick, and mine thought it would be OK to invite his ex fiancé to our wedding hmm.

I bloody love gaviscon. And yoghurt in a pouch.

CreepyCrawly Fri 25-Oct-13 09:57:51

On a kitchen stool?! Whaaaat?! It does make you wonder how the human race has survived doesn't it!

Up 4 times last night, and started the day at 5:30. A top tooth is poking through now so hopefully it was that. I miss my excellent sleeper sad

I had cake for breakfast.

Angielka Fri 25-Oct-13 10:21:15

I'm eating M&Ms creepy. It helps smile She'll be back to sleeping properly now the tooth is out. Believe!

LOL cupcakes I think they just forget. It was such a long time since they had little babies to care for, they forget exactly what it entails...

Had quiet morning so far - MIL took a sleeping pill last night and is still in bed.

glorious Fri 25-Oct-13 15:59:03

Yay cupcakes what a change! But a kitchen stool shock

I am getting to the end of my tether with sleep sad This cold has made things even worse and now she's teething too. Going to have to try gradual retreat or pick up put down or something because I just can't cope with any more months of hourly wakings sad She's bloody grumpy while awake atm too so it's just miserable.

Sorry he's still being idiotic creepy

glorious Fri 25-Oct-13 15:59:55

Should add I'm not proposing to start anything until she's better. Maybe that's why it won't gohmm

salt1 Fri 25-Oct-13 16:51:29

hurray have found you. just need to catch up now ...

lollipoppi Fri 25-Oct-13 17:24:49

Well DP has joined the twat club today, having a ding dong at me about the house! The house is clean and tidy, but the kitchen cupboards are a mess!!??
Who the fuck gives a shit about the state if my tins in the kitchen fucking cupboards!!
Wanker.

Oh and to top it off I dropped the grill tray on the floor after cooking and spilt hot fat and oil all over my brand new brown leather winter boots, it's the first thing I've bought myself in about a year and they're ruined hmm

Sorry, rant over!

DS had a lovely bday yesterday, now just got to prepare for his party on Sunday!

shock At all the DMs/MILs leaving babas in silly places!! It's so easy to forget how fast they can move!

Cupcakes glad you kind of had a better night, hope the gaviscon is doing the trick! DD is on that too and we saw improvement in sleep within a few nights

Just off to collect DS from nursery, it's pissing it down and my cars broke hmm
