MG....sorry to hear you've been so sick. hope it passes really quickly for you. funnily i thought i would catch all illnesses when i was preg cos i knew your immune system wasn't as powerful but no matter how many colds i was around i didn't catch a thing! altho.....ask me now! i dont know where my current one has come from! good work on trying S on peanut butter! what age are they recommending you test it?? Also, where are you guys off to again? you've probably mentioned it but i've forgotten.
Livvy....good on you for sticking up to your boss! best way to go about it reckon is to speak the truth! some bosses are just a-holes! maybe she's a jealous lonely lady! who knows!! hope all is well with you otherwise! Also, as for the clothing during birth.....i was just going to wear comfy top and bra but then i opted to have the epidural and so ended up wearing a gown.....and then i ended up having a c/s anyway so gown it was all the way. unfortunately i didn't get skin to skin contact which i was a bit disappointed about. before i even got the chance they had him all wrapped up and on me wrapped. next time i will make sure for skin to skin.
Winzy.....i went with the 'go with the flow' approach for ages with C! i do regret tho going for so long with it (6 months) cos he was going to bed about 9pm after a bath at about 8.30pm (we thought later bed time would give us less wakeup) but it didn't give us a peaceful dinner and etc and we were utterly exhausted by the end of the night so next time i will go with flow for a bit but onto routine as soon as it feels the right time. your first breastfeed sounds like a moment to remember! well done! sounds like you're starting to get some good sleeps from him which is great! Great work with the smiles and getting your blocked duct sorted!
Digby....sounds like you're getting some good sleeps from Z as well! are the top ups still going well? if i can offer a suggestion try not to keep the late bath/late bedtime going too long cos we did up until 6months and i wished we had've gotten him to bed earlier at an earlier age. every baby is different and what works for some may not work for others and you never know when a baby is going to stop waking during the night. There were a heap of good ideas in Shys post and i'm glad the late bedtime is working for you well but from experience i would suggest to not have it like that for too long otherwise you wont ever give yourselves a break at night time.
Waiting....congratulations on the placement! just think of the money as a nice bonus at the end!! When do you go?? hope it's not too soon! will miss you! but exciting all at the same time anyway! good on you!! hope you're all well!
LM.....how are you and the kidlets?? are you all over your illnesses??
Rach.....how are you and the fam? how's little marli? i saw in the other thread you got to give her her first bath and have given her lots of cuddles! how very precious! what does she weigh now? is she still in an isolette thingy or is she in an open bassinet thingy? hope she keeps growing well!
Kiwi....i had to have glasses when i was a wee one! i've still got them in my bedside table! they're so cute! missing one lens but i still dont want to get rid of them. nice lovely brown color too (that they were!). hmmmm.....i wonder if i can find a photo to post! lol. Hope all is well with you otherwise!
Shy....thanks for posting all those settling tips! you're full of good info! Well done on S sitting as well! C has been sitting for about a week too! getting better each time!
Liv....big hugs! sorry to hear of the confirmed m/c! the charm is a lovely idea! hope you and C are ok!
Country....have you popped yet? i'm waiting for your annoucement text.
Hi to anyone i've missed! sorry!
I've been home sick since Monday avo! very very very unheard of for me to get sick! I spoke to my boss on the phone on wednesday night and she heard how sick i was in my voice so at least she knows its genuine (not that i could ever pull a sicky for a week!!). I said to her that i dont know where it's come from cos i never get sick and never have more than 1 sick day in a row.....she's like "i know.....someone else said that lisa never gets sick!". I texted her yesterday and said i was ready to come back today (friday) but she told me to stay home otherwise if i went in then she would send me back home at the first cough! bless her! I still can't help but feel bad tho cos i dont usually like to have too many days off sick. well as said, i never have more than 1 day off sick! Have had a nasty nasty cough and 2 ear infections (which haven't actually been all that painful....it's just been a very painful cough!). C has been at childcare and at my sisters yesterday this week so at least i've been able to completely rest at home and sleep as long and when i want. i've missed him tho!
C has been commando crawling everywhere! getting faster every day! been going for nearly 2 weeks! has been sitting heaps this week too! gotta watch the little speedster! he's all better now too which is great. still a runny/snuffly/sometimes-blocked nose but other than that he's eating and drinking well again so we're very pleased that his illness is all over!
Hope you're all well!
Right....best be off for a glass of water and an antibiotic i might call lunch!
yep, i'm also not a big fan of this format either mods!
