    Default TTC, pg with & parent to #1 (thread 5)

    Hi ladies!!

    It's so good to be back (temporarily)... my computer really had a melt down and I still haven't got a new one. Really struggling with parting with the Krudd money... and can't decide what to get. Could be a while till I'm back on bubhub again.

    I hope everyone is well... I'm afraid I don't have time tonight to read back on the other thread. Has anyone else got good news this month? I hope there's some more BFPs!

    AFM, I don't have my first scan until I'm 8 weeks, which is another two weeks away, so I haven't seen the heartbeat yet. It doesn't feel quite real, but with the complete disappearance of AF, I know there's something good happening. Have also felt very tired and I remember that from my first pregnancy.

    Lisa, Von, Kaz, Alana, Meg, KRP, Thumbelina, Jolea, Kez, Nic, and anyone else who has joined the rollercoaster... (sorry if I have forgotten anyone)...

    BIG HUGS AND BABYDUST!

    Hi everyone,

    MIL didn't start chemo today as her calcuim levels are still way too high. They've doubled her IV fluid intake to try and flush it out but that will no doubt put her kidneys under pressure again. The poor thing, it's such a balancing act, every intervention has side effects that need to be managed as well. There's no chance she's going to be able to go home on Wednesday now. Though, she's probably better off in hospital anyway. Just so far away for FIL to visit her and he wont' stay with us.

    Deb - is Chris home? Two of our neighbours's husbands work away, one of them has young kids, don't know how they do it. I was a mess when Steve was in Kokoda last year. I hope Isaac slept a bit better for you?

    Julie - climbing toys are great - we have a fort thing with a slide and another one that someone gave us, so we connect the two - Koby loves it.

    Fish - are you inlaw free yet?

    Hi Sam, how's your MIL going today? Yep I'm in-law free, and so my brain is a bit tired and addled at the moment. Things are going pretty well though.

    Julie, I know what you mean. I make sure my legs are crossed when I have to sneeze too . I'm sure Blake will love his outdoor time. Are your music classes an ongoing thing, or is it just for a semester. I'm trying to figure out a new activity we can do. I'm not 100% about the latest nursery rhymes group I've joined, but I can't find anything else that seems perfect just yet.

    Time to go and dry off some kids

    Hi everyone,

    Fish - MIL seemed ok last night when DH visited, but her calcium levels are still too high to start chemo, so they've done another bone scan to try to find out why, again. Hopefully some answers today.

    Koby put himself to bed today - just climbed into his cot and pulled the blankets up. When I called out to ask him where he was, he said 'in my bed'. I could't believe it! I just tucked him in, pulled the side of the cot up an left him to it. He chatted for a while, the off to sleep. Such a change from the way he was 12 months ago!

    Hi Sam, I hope the test gives useful results.

    Wow what a clever boy Koby is. Nick is the other way for the last week. up to 1.5 hours battle. So frustrating, when 2 weeks ago he would just lie quetly and drop off to sleep quickly. I've driving him to sleep in the car this week after our morning activity, in the hope that he forgets he was having tantrums about it...

    Nicks conversation as I was hanging up the washing: grass here. grass here. 1,2,3,...9,10! Lot of grasses. (Me: yes there's a lot of grass isn't there?) Lot of grass, yeh!

    Ah he's running this way saying need a clean nappy...

    Just tired, I think, Fish. He had his first day at family day care yesterday, didn't sleep there so had a short late afternoon nap yesterday. Then was super clingy last night, I got so many tisses and tuddles! This morning at netball he was happy to go to creche but then sat on the carer's knee for the whole hour. When we left he was clingy again and didn't want to let go to get in the car.

    Going to take a bit of adjusting for us both, I think. He's woken up today grizzly and won't get off my lap again. I'm loving the cuddles but not much else is being done!

    I love Nick's little conversations -his vocab sounds so developed. Koby has masses of words now but does't put them together yet like Nick does. I don't think you'll ever need to worry at all about Nick being youngest in his class - he speaks so well.

    Hi Sam, Any more MIL news? Clinginess is sweet in one way isn't it. How often is Koby going to family daycare?

    Do you get the playgroup mag? there was something in it about boys development and starting school. I think we'll just wing it. thanks for the compliment. I think he's doing ok, but a year older is still a year older at the end of the day.

    Feeds every 2 hours last night, so my brain is pretty mushy. Nick is getting to be 2-ish too, our naughty corner is getting a bit of a work out these days. but otherwise all is going pretty well here.

    Hi everyone,

    MIL still in hospital. DH spoke to the specialist yesterday, the tumour has grown but it's not what's making her so sick at the moment, the calcium levels are still high which is making her ill. They've done a brain scan but not expecting it to show anything, chemo may start today, but only if BP is down. DH asked what the chemo would do and was told that it's just a delaying tactic as the cancer isn't curable. I think we all expected this, but it's hard to hear it so DH is feeling very sad.

    Fish - I did see that magazine come in the mail but I don't know what I did with it! Chaotic around here. BTW - I got your email but I can't answer, my email is not functioning properly. GRR! Did you have a better night last night?

    We had a shocker, teeth or ear infection? Don't really know. We are so so tired today. I think we need to work on a naughty corner or a time out chair or something along those lines, he's old enough to understand now. And there's certainly some '2 yo' behaviours popping up!

    hi everyone
    i haven't written for so long i can't remember whats been happening!

    sam, big hugs to your family. what an awful thing to have to go through.

    speaking of clingy babies, isaac is by far the clingyest ever! it is so tiring. i don't even get replaced by dad when he's finished work, isaac still wants me. i guess i should enjoy it while it lasts.
    we all have colds at the moment and i haven't taught isaac to blow his nose yet so we are constantly wiping! he hates it. hopefully only a few more days.

    i haven't even introduced a naughty corner for isaac yet....what do you put them in one for? i know caleb goes in his for hitting but isaac wouldn't even look at another kid let alone hit one!

    we have had my other sister staying this week. it is so funny the ideas that childless people have!

    time to hop in bed while isaac is asleep i think.

    Hi Deb! Yes, its' funny the ideas that childless people have, and people who haven't had little children for a long time. I just smile and ignore them, works well! Naughty corners or spots, or time out is probably a better word - can be used when they're repeatedly doing something that they shouldn't I guess. At the moment, I'm finding i"m repeating my self so much and then raising my voice to get Koby to do/not do something, so I'm definitely considering something along those lines. I like that it's a non-threatening way to make a point that their behaviour is not acceptable if they're playing. As much as the experts promote ignoring bad behaviour and rewarding good, sometimes that doesn't work!

    Koby has an awful respiratory infection - has been really sick since yesterday afternoon. It's frightening how they can go from being ok to really sick so quickly. We had such a bumpy night with him, huge temps, then an awful cough. we ended up sitting in a steamy bathroom at 4am trying to settle his cough. Wheezing and no voice this morning - pretty scary. We tried to go to an afterhours dr this morning but they're opening hours were much different from what the website stated, so we stuck our heads into the emergency dept - and promptly backed out. There were so many people there and goodness knows what other bugs he would have caught! We ended up with a locum at home - nasty virus, no treatment but at least I don't have to worry about pneumonia or asthma now. He seems a little more settled tonight so hopefully over the worst of it.

    DH's mum has had one round of IV chemo and gone home today, she seemed ok physically when we saw her yesterday but we're both worried about her state of mind. She'd been in there 9 days and hadn't bothered to ask for the tv to be activated, said she wasn't interested, she's not reading, which is really unusual for her. She's basically just been staring at the wall in all that time. Really not good, I'm really worried. I hope she's better at home.
