JFB - I recently got AF for the first time and DD was 7.5mths old. I still BF full time. It came very suddenly in a very heavy flow and I didn't have any spotting beforehand. Of course it chose Stella's baptism day to appear It sounds like yours is starting to make an appearance more gradually. I think you are a saint not to bop DH on the head and put HIM out with the garbage Hope you get some rest soon.
Amum - Isn't PW a beautiful soul? I'm glad you managed to catch up in person.
Sonja - I'm sooo glad others know about issues with rats. I recently found one was nesting in my newly plastered and insulated roof It was making so much noise we thought it was a possum and then the possum man caught it on one of those infrared cameras. Big cheeky rat running along the rafters merrily. It had shredded insulation, peed, crapped all over my new plaster, and generally messed up my pristine roof space. So it was baited and hopefully went to rat heaven (outside). I'm too scared to go up there and check (noises have ceased). Now I'm spending $$$ ratproofing the roof. About $3k. Rats The pest controller said every time someone in the street renovates or demolishes a house they disturb rat nests and so the rats relocate nearby. We've had 3 renovations/rebuilds in the last year.
Nessie - I hope your son passes the 3 yr 'bump' soon. Stella has just reached 8 mths and decided to reject eating for a few days (would blow raspberries and turn her head every time a spoon was near her mouth). Only wanted boobie. She's better today. From this thread, it looks like I have a lot of interesting behaviour ahead.
