Just Mumming Along (viroids 2)(1000 Posts)
Tried to post on the original thread and my post got rejected as its full! Have copied and pasted below....
Congrats on the job offer ttl...hope the other one comes up trumps for you too.
Dd isn't quite crawling yet, but would very much like to. She is the queen of the Klingons at the moment, and has a meltdown the second I put her down, look in the opposite direction, or if someone else so much as looks at her. Not all the time thankfully, but definitely for part of every day.
On the bf thing, it's so personal.....I've just dropped doing the afternoon feed myself be cause dd is so distractible that she bobs on and off, which I don't like around other people, and now she
finally has teeth the constant latch on/off was really hurting. I just bf once a day, our morning snuggle when she's nice and calm. I would be sad to give that one up just yet.
Oh no sorry for the puke in your house.
If it's any consolation I don't have the norovirus but I am Vom Queen in our house at the moment.
Just saw MW. She reckons I'm 10 weeks, based on the fact I've been sick for 2 weeks. I think I'm more like 8. Scan on Tuesday, so we'll see.
Sorry not been on for ages. Our house has just had one illness after another over Christmas.
We haven't done controlled crying with ds so no real advice I'm afraid. We spent about 30 mins one night trying the shh pat technique, but decided it wasn't worth it. We have now settled on a strong bed time routine. Sometimes ds sleeps through. Other times he joins us at some point in the night. Not sure how this arrangement will work when new baby arrives. Think we need a bigger bed!
Anyway, I hope this doesn't sound daft but we haven't done cc as I feel it won't work for him. I have friends who have done it successfully. I think this is because it was right for them and the baby. One in particular wanted put down, but would still kind of cry/gurn (not the howling that my ds does) and then drift off. So try and not feel guilty. You can see if it is making your toddler happier.
How is everyone? It's always strange trying to get back to normal after holidays. Tried to keep my week busy, so ds doesn't go stir crazy stuck with me in the house.
Dyna - how is the house hunting? We still haven't decided on big house further out (Kirkliston) or smaller place more central...decisions!
Val not long now until the two week wait and poas!
Hope everyone is finally illness and morning sickness free. We had a miserable time over Christmas and new year. Luckily dh didn't return to work until yesterday, so at least got a couple of nice days together.
Oh no cola. Poor you with the sickness bugs. Rubbish.
Thank you. Isobel has gone back to a bit of moaning for a minute or two before shuffling down to sleep, though she's also getting up at 5.40 on the dot for some reason!
Had my scan. Am 8 weeks on Friday. Even I thought I was further along than that. The vomming and the nausea have been incredible this time. It's just one baby. Told the least discreet person in the world at work today. She's the only person who could give me the advice I needed on how to play it with students making choices about next year's courses etc, and she's a mum of two herself and very supportive of me. But she'll have told half of London by now ...
Hope everybody else is having a nice start to the new year!
LOL TTL I love the work grapevine. When I was 'announcing' my PG last time I found it really hard to tell people so I told her and just sat back .
Yep, not long now until ET (I hope!) I have been on Progynova, which is basically HRT, to thicken my lining for 6 days now and I am huge. I kid you not, I am so bloated I look 6 months pregnant....It's hideous. But all in a good cause. I have a scan on Saturday. I will be totally devastated if my lining is pitiful as I need some explanation for turning into a blimp! After the Saturday scan they will either increase the dose of progynova for a few more days, or I will start on the delightful progestrone suppositories which I need to be on 5 days before ET (as the frozen ones are 5 days old). Then fingers crossed they defrost and stick around. Hugely anxious about it all again
My bestie told me she was PG on NYE. Obviously totally delighted for her and would love to be on mat leave together
How is everyone doing? How did your scan go Vallinna? Are you on the way to cooking another miniVallinna? And how are all our lovely already upduffed viroids?
Things are just ticking along as normal in the Feijoa house. We're slowly spending more and more time lurgy free, which is great! DD is a precocious thing now, talking more and more and running away from me more and more She also doesn't like snow balls being thrown at her, but when one hits Daddy in the face it's hilarious (which is it really is hehe). Not that we had much snow.
Nope - cycle has been cancelled I was not really responding to the drugs and then started bleeding. Which was meant to be impossible Could go again once I have finished bleeding. Just.....meh, really. Not sure I want to.
Oh, that sucks Val Surely there is no rush to make a decision what you want to do straight away though. Give yourself the time to feel meh and if at the end of that you don't want to go ahead then don't and if you do, do (I realise not having been in this situation that is easy for me to say). Big hugs xx
But on a lighter note I just wanted to say [bgrin][bwink][bsmile]...
Grr, they didn't work, even though they are still listed down there [insert down arrow here]
What were the 'b' smilies meant to be?!
Thanks Feijoa I feel I need to crack on in case it takes us a couple of years...
Hi, I'm wondering if a move over here is a good idea? I was in the JS thread last year and then obviously the Viroids too and now have a squishy 2 week old newborn. I didn't want to join the jan group it's huge about 50 or more on it! Hope there's room here for a newbie?
They were supposed to be the tartan hatted smiles for Burns night.
Tiredteddy Hello, welcome and yes more than enough room for newbie graduates We haven't had a squishy viroid baby in far to long <sniffs minitiredteddy, while ignoring minifeij's tantrum>
Thanks feijoa dd is 2 weeks old and was a very fast labour that I won't forget for a while! I also have ds1 age 8 and ds2 age5. I'm getting in the swing of the school run again. There's a couple of others on the grads thread due soon.
Awh bebbies!! Well, bebe!
Welcome tiredteddy...PS wish my Teddy (DS) was tired
Hey all good here (hopefully) I say that as fine but not much movement from little spek so hoping 20 weeks scan goes well this week, just would like to see a healthy baby waving at us but also hugely excited to find out boy/girl!! We've been enjoying the scant amount of snow... Sledging rocks and happily Oscar agrees!!
Poor you Val I hope the next time you respond to the drugs sending you ((hugs))
CC any decision or Kirkliston vs central? We've decided to delay until this little one is born and I'm back to work, just don't want financial strain when on mat leave... This is the most post-poned move ever! We're ok in our flat for a but as its big if only 2 beds and new build so we have a lift. Hope to definitely move end of this year start of next though! Hope everyone else all good?
OH and welcome tiredted and congrats on our little one!
Gosh I really had forgotten how busy it is with a little baby in the house. The juggling of three dc is a bit epic at times!
my ummy is the best <3 minifeij xxx
I'm lurking about but hate typing on my phone and well you see what happens when I turn the laptop on these days.
How is everyone?
Well I had one of my two embryos thawed and put back last Weds Test this Friday Don't feel remotely like I did after 'proper' IVF so very down on it working.
To top it all DS was diagnosed with chickenpox the day before transfer. He hasn't been too spotty but very poorly and sad. Spots in his mouth and up his nose. I had it as a child but since Thursday have felt quite fluey and of course itchy as hell. Keep thinking I am finding spots...
Oh and throughout all of this DH has been working abroad in Australia
So all go here
Hope you are all well. How are the next batch of mini Viriods?
Fej how are DDs iPad skills coming on
Oh traded the Maclaren for a BJCM which I love.
Oh, sticky thoughts coming your way VAL! And get better soon miniVal. Try putting baking soda in a warm bath to help with the itching. x
I'd love to trade up my pushchair for something else, but I use one or the other of my slings so often it's not worth it. So know I'm hanging out til I can afford a new sling
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend xx
