I'm using a db hospital grade pump to express, Spectra brand, love it, so easy to use
E was 5months yesterday, can't believe how much she is changing. I'm loving it but feel a little sad too. She weighs over 6kg now and is in roughly size 000
I believe the "Jolly Jumper" was the best thing ever invented for babies, she loves hers, I've now got hooks in several places to change it up for her, different scenery.
I've been trying E on a little solids, some pureed apple and some farex. So far so good, she has about 4-6 spoonfulls.
E is still sleeping 10-12hrs every night. So loving that. Some days she will only have 2-3 1/2hr naps, others it's for an hour or 2. I just go with the flow.
Dh actually mowed a path (because I asked) through one of our cattle paddocks so it is less bumpy and I can push E around in the the pram. She loves it and I get exercise. Dh has even taken her a few times himself. It will also be easier for me to move the cows now........
2kg to go and I will be back at my pre-pregnancy weight!!
We dtd last night, 4th time since E was born. I enjoyed it too so there is hope for everyone lol Dh was very surprised as I was the one who instigated things. He has been so patient.
Good on you Amps. I find DH so irritating at the moment so it is not so much not wanting to dtd as not wanting to be too close to him.
After DS I just loved seeing him being a father and found it so attractive. Now I am just tired and cranky and don't feel that he pulls his weight, and he seems to think I sit on my **** all day and should wait on him when he gets home.
Our relationship has just plummeted into this cycle of self destruction where I am not even sure if I like him anymore. Every time he opens his mouth I feel myself mentally rolling my eyes. I feel like a biatch but surely it isn't all just my fault / in my head?!?
Anyhoo, that got all a bit intense and I wasn't meaning to!! Loving my kiddies though.
R is 4 months and is super cute. She is my little mouse and is really no trouble at all. I think she might be starting to get teeth. She is biting on her hands like there is no tomorrow and starting to suck her thumb which I am really trying to stop.
Anyone else think teeth are on the way?
Bedlover - I'm hearing you, I've had moments where I truly thought that I didn't like my dh anymore. That thought gave me pause to really look at him and decide if I was able to accept ALL his faults, which I believe has saved our relationship. What I'm finding hard is I'm not really attracted to him right now...... He is great with E and I really can't complain there, he may not be the most expressive person but he does try, with varying degrees of success. I just wish he would make an effort to make himself more attractive to me
I think E might be getting teeth too, she always shoves her hands in her mouth and pretty much anything she can grab and pull in, lots of drool now too.
Hi ladies.. Sorry I haven't read back the previous pages.. Hope you and your Bubs are all well.
Bedlover I totally understand.. I'm struggling and I've only got one Bubs to look after. I'm getting really frustrated with DH. He gets home from work and lucky if he spends 30mins with DD and says, ok daddy needs to lay down and have a break.. I've literally got that time to wash up the dishes and tidy the kitchen.. I said to him tonight, it would be nice if you gave me an extra 1/2 hr to do a few things ... But he wasn't interested! DD is full on and I don't get much done. She barely sleeps during the day and if she does it's for 30mins and it takes me over 1/2 hr to get her down! I'm tired.......
DD is teething already. At night she gets red cheeks, she's constantly got her hands in her mouth and does lots of poos. She's really unsettled too We've given her a bit of bonjela, panadol and we give her the teething rings from the fridge.
Sorry for the rant!
I'm hearing you ladies. Finding it hard to be attracted to DH. Could it be hormones and lack of energy??
I find myself looking at him and saying to myself "you used to be head over heels...try harder!!" But then I can see it's quite common and try to relax.
I recently went through a stage where I resented him so much for most things...mainly for going to the gym (and getting "me" time...what does that feel like??) and even working or being able to sleep whilst I fed at night!!
But it's so hard JJ when you don't have a sleeper. So exhausting.
I want to try and work on our romance. Really feeling like the gap is getting bigger between us.
At Torrens house again. Just went through out goals. Aiming for longer sleeps....again! Partially accepted that she's just an awake baby. 😁
Sorry I haven't been around I find days and nights go so quickly these days I can't believe my little guy is almost 10 weeks old. I apologise for not being up to date I had a quick skim at previous posts and photos.
Jay- I read about Hilton's blood in poo and kicking of his legs in pain. Does he have cows milk protein intolerance? Sounds like what my Raff is going through. I'm currently still on an elimination diet of no dairy, soy, wheat and I've added eggs the last few weeks. It's hard but I've noticed some improvement. I'm seeing an allergist who prescribed me a specialised formula called NEOCATE for emergencies until we work out what he's allergic to. How is Hilton going on the new formula?
Here's a little picture of my big man..for a boy who lost more than 10% of his weight in hospital and struggled to feed and gain weight he is now a whopping 6kgs. Thankfully this tummy problem isn't affecting his weight.ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1409056883.389020.jpg
