J - Hope you are ok. I recently started taking tablets that are mixed with fenugreek and blessed Thistle - took a couple of days, but I am back to being able to express about 90 mlx from each boob when I miss a feed (I will feed Chelsea twice on the left b00B and then express from the right).
Toni - My MIL turns up next Thursday...already DH and I are predicting all the things she is going to comment on. I have told hubby that if she says anything about Chelsea not sleeping through the night, I am going to go all nutcase on her! Or if she uses the word 'should', I again, will go all nutcase!
Channy - the stuff my younger brothers have done scares me and I have a girl!! One of my brothers thought it would be funny to throw fuel onto a bonfire when he was 20.....he spent months in intensive care and burnt is whole face and front of his body. And you know what, the silly S.O.B is so lucky that he has no bad scarring and damage and has not learnt his lesson. So his 21st, he and his stupid mates went back to the spot to try again...... I kid you not. My father and step mother just shrugged their shoulders. My youngest 2 brothers are just hitting teenage years now and they are so full of anger (teens these days!) I worry for my mother. The youngest (11) already runs away from home for no reason!
Smurfy - pregnant? haha Seems to be in the water around here ;P
Can't believe Poppi is already a month old! Such a cutie!!
eek! That is all I can remember!!
With us, Chelsea turned 9 months the other day. Thankfully she seems to have stopped gaining weight and is now sitting at the 10 kilo mark (10.09kg). She is constantly pulling herself up on stuff and walking along it. But the other day she started letting go - it seriously scares me!! But yes I am now walking around picking everything up off the lounge - which use to be a safe spot! My lounge room has never looked so spotless!!
Her sleep is still not great. Hubby suggested that for a week I try formula feeds at night. Made me sick the first night and now I am ok about doing it and will keep doing it until Monday - but it has not made 1 bit of difference!! I think I just have a child who wakes constantly - oh well! Instead on focusing on her and trying to get her to sleep longer, I need to focus on me and my attitude towards it and how to cope with sleep dep.
This weekend I am hosting a baby shower for a friend - excited to be doing it, but so happy to get it over and done with and then it will be time to start planning Chelsea's 1st birthday!!!
to everyone - happy Friday and hope you all have a great weekend!
