    Phew Sam. Guess it must be something else mucking up your cycle then. And the chicken looked awesome, but was a bit dry as I got stuck feeding at the wrong moment

    Doctors appt tomorrow to find out results of bloods. It's been 9 weeks since I've had AF.

    Koby is sick again - high temp when he woke up from his nap yesterday, and very unhappy. He had a rough night but seems ok today, just a runny green nose again. I just don't understand how or why he can finally get better, have 2 well days and get another virus. It doesn't seem right or fair. He has another appt tomorrow to check his ears anyway will see what dr says about being sick again - may just all be related to ears?

    Sam hope you can find an answer for koby soon.
    would you be a teensy bit thrilled if there was a baby in there?!!

    isaac has been getting up at 4am for the last two weeks so i guess that is our new phase. we were happy with 5am but this is a bit too early! he crashes at 10am for a sleep then 6pm for the night. so i guess he's still getting the right amount of sleep. its nice having him ask to go to sleep anyway. i'm actually sleeping better at night too, i guess i don't really sleep past 3am anyway.

    Fish, how old was nick when your af came back? because isaac was such a big feeder, mine didn't come back until he was 18 months. remember as soon as she's sleeping 6 hours straight you're not covered!!

    i asked my doctor about conceiving a girl and she said its all just chance. i guess you can up the odds a little bit but still pretty random. we might start trying towards the end of the year and see what happens. the year is going to quickly but i don't want isaac to be too old!!

    Hi Deb

    Yes, I probably would be - I'm still besotted with babies, but the reality is that it wouldn't be a good idea in terms of family / health or finances.

    Koby still has a green snotty nose, which is very attractive. Off to the dr in a hour.

    4am is a bit early! Perhaps you could work on ten minute increments getting him to be later than 6 in the hope that it gradually pushes his sleepins to 5 or 6am? I guess the main thing is you're both getting the right amount. I think the chances of conceiving boys vs girls has been proven to be slightly enhanced by using timing? I can't remember where I saw/read it though.

    Poor Koby. I hope the ears is the prob and they fix easily. Any results for you yet?

    Yes Deb 4am IS way too early. DD's just decided that 5:30 is a good time to start chatting, and I think THAT's way too early. Fortunately she's young enough still to entertain herself for a long time. Nick on the other hand...

    Timing worked for us. (well good luck timing) I'm sure it's not a 100% guarenteed though, more chance. How's your sister going? I know the 6 hour rule, but my Af came back at 9 mths, when I was still giving Nick 5-6 feeds a day, but hadn't given him night feeds in ages. So I'm not too fussed about it. I'm sure it's different for everyone (both hopefully the same for one person for all children ) To be honest I'm doing my head in a little bit at the moment, trying to decide between 2 and three. I know Dh and I said we'd wait until DD is a few years old and then decide, but I'm hopeless at just sitting back and deciding later. There are so many arguments in both directions and I just can't decide which ones are most important to me.

    The doc thinks Koby's ears are still the issue, still blocked with wax so back on low level long term antibiotics, which is how they treat glue ear. We have a referral to an ENT to do something about the wax and check his ears properly.

    I got my results back - the diagnosis is premature ovarian failure. Fancy term for very bloody early menopause. Even though this is what I suspected, I feel very odd. There is so much to think about, gp wants me on the pill to try to re-creat a ycle and keep my oestrogen up because of huge risk of osteoporosis with early menopause. I don't like the pill as it makes me feel so tired. Then there's HRT which carries risk of breast and ovarian cancer, particularly as I'd be on it for so long. I'm not keen on that either but I don't know enough about it. Then, there's the fact that the GP was happy to just accept that I'm an oddity going through it this young, whereas I want to rule out there being a sinister reason for it. She has referred me for a pelvis US then I'll go back to a GP i know of who specialises in women's health and take it from there.

    Apart from these risks - I'm gutted that I don't have a CHOICE about having another baby. I would have much preferred her to tell me I'm pregnant than this. There's also the fact that I'm very likely to age very quickly from here. I don't look 36 at the moment- a fact that I like very much, I don't like the idea of suddenly looking my age or older. Sounds vain, I know. DH looks far younger than his years too - am I now going to over take him and look old way before he does? Am I going to BECOME old and not be able to do the things I want to because my bones aren't strong enough? Am I going to become a horrible narky biatch because of fluctuating hormones? There is soo damn much running through my head right now.

    Julie, I've been meaning to ask you your advice too. I have a very good friend who is coming up to the date when her miscarried baby would be due. She's going to away on holiday. Should I recognise it, do you think? any suggestions of how to do it tactfully? She was very upset by the loss.

    Sam I missed your post You poor thing. Half expected or not, that's a lot to deal with. I know nothing about it, but the first thing that pops into my head is get into that gym and exercise like mad! Remember an increased risk is not a dead certainty, you can increase your bone strength by loading those bones. did you know that astronaughts need to be in those wheelchairs when they come back to earth because the absence of loading means their bones have remodelled and are no longer strong enough to bear their weight? (ok that was a useless fact, sorry). Being fit also makes you look younger (look at your DH), and maybe worst case is that you'll actually start looking your age, which to be honest a working mum of three including a two year old and a teenager, should :P you're beating the odds so far, no reason why you can continue to.

    Thanks Fish. The gym was one of my first thoughts too. And calcium / vit D supplements. I didn't know about the astronauts - useless facts or not, I like them!

    I guess i've got lots of reading to do on HRT etc.
