    Hey girls! I hope you don't all fall over with shock at seeing a post from me lol sorry it has been so long since I posted but I don't get much time to sit on the Mac and the thought of typing a reply which is no doubt going to be pretty long on my iPhone is just too annoying. But now hubby has his new iPad which he left with me so Izzy and I are lying in bed after feeding her and I am able to type quite comfortably! hmmm Madam is making tell tale trying to do a poo exosion noises so who knows maybe this will again be cut short but I will do my best!

    How is everyone? It has been so long since I posted I don't even know where to start replying...

    Thee we are in contact on fb so I see you and Caitlyn's progress, she is gorgeous! How is being back at work going for you? And is Catlyn still happy at creche? We need tob look into finding places for Izzy at some stage but I dont even know where to start really. When Caitlyn was teething what did you use? Bonjela doesn't seem too effective and I am having to give Izzy panadol every night which while the chemist says is fine I still don't like doing cant have her sore though!

    Shadow congrats again on your little man! Love your new avatar! Hw is he going for you? Being a good boy? Did your milk supply end up coming back? Hope everything is going well for you.

    Una hello! Little miss Z must be so cute now! Glad to hear her reflux settled down eventually. Good luck with TTC when you start

    TB hope the new medicine is helping little miss O with her seizures. She sound like a wonderful little girl, hope she gets bigger and stronger by the day.

    Izy hope little X is still kicking goals after getting adenoids out and grommets in and is settling into a routine for you. Hopefully you and tb can have that long awaited catch up

    I dont think Sniper has joined this thread yet but if you are stalking hello hope all going well with your little man!

    Okay afu... Izzy is 5 months this weekend and cute as a button. She is growing and changing and beautiful and I adore her! Still lactose intolerant and on medicine for it and super food sensitive but as long as I am careful about what I eat and make sure she has her drops before every feed we are fine. I have my mom out from south Africa visiting us at the moment which is wonderful and it was so special to see her meet Izzy for the first time. Okay dh has to go soon so I will finish this here, sorry for the long absence I will try be better!

    Take care everyone

    Em
    Xx

    Hi girls!

    Well the lil man is 5 weeks today! I Dont know where the time has gone! We think we've seen him smile a few times but not 100% sure if it was wind or not. He's putting on heaps of weight and is a REAL Chubby baby! But he's happy and healthy.

    Mela - glad to hear lil miss is doing well. How special for ur mum to finally meet her!

    Im not sure whats going on with my milk supply. Half the time Kyan refuses the BF, othertimes he will demand it spitting out dummy and bottle and screaming till i put him on. Sometimes he wants a shield, sometimes not. Its SO hard predicting what he wants! (Typical male haha)

    Im still persevering with the BF, Still on motilium, and they've doubled my dose to 2 tablets 3x a day, but im still not seeing a big change...so i dont think its going to happen for us So for now, we're demand feeding. I offer him a BF to start, if he takes it great, if not we go to the bottle, and afterwards i express. To save hassles with syringes etc, we save the EBM throughout the day and give it in the afternoon/evening tea feed. Im averaging between 10-30ml from both each time., so a slight increase but not what i expected.... Ive got about another week of medication, and my 6wk checkup with my GP next week. So i think ill ask for another script if he will give it to me.

    Im torn between REALLY wanting him to BF for the benefits from the milk, and the closeness of it and because he actually does appear to like it and uses it to settle sometimes, and developmental stuff with the jaw etc.... But then some days i think itd just be easier to give up on it and go 100% formula....Then i feel guilty for thinking of giving up.

    BF is the ONLY Thing i was adament about doing, and it took me quite a few weeks to accept that i HAD to give him the formula...Even now i hate that i have to give it to him, knowing how much more id prefer him to be BF..But ive finally got myself to a point where im happy to offer it and express, and just give him formula. And strangely enough the Midwives and nurses etc are all for me to comp feed, and not pushing the BF expectation, its me pushing the BF thing. I think they'd all be happy for me to let it go....but are VERY supportive of me continuing to try.

    I guess my main thing is i dont want to give up too soon, then regret it later thinking "Maybe if i tried for another week it would've happened"....But then, when do i stop trying... IYKWIM? Maybe im just so scared of making that decision? Not sure... Even just thinking about it now im biting back tears... Anyways!!!!!

    Hope all ur lil bubbas are doing well..
    GL with TTC again Una
    TB - hope ur lil princess does well on her meds and continues to get stronger
    Thee - hope ur lil princess is doing well too!
    Super - hows ur lil man doing?

    Hey Shadow, thanks for the reply. You poor thing struggling with b/f, from what I can work it it seems more common to have problems than it be easy! I have been very lucky that Izzy is a little vacuum cleaner and has a strong latch/want to feed but that is not to say it has been without issues (she's lmactose intolreant, I've had white spots which are really painful, had to cut so many foods out of my diet because she is super sensitive and had a bub that wanted 3 or 4 hourly feeds every night until she was 19 weeks old lol so sleep wasn't high on the agenda) but it has all got a lot easier now. I feel for you having to make a decision and think you have been really good to persevere for this long. It is good that the midwives/nurses have been supportive too. In the end if it doesnt wind up being something u and Kyan can do long term you know you have given it 100% and should be proud of yourself for coming this far. By the looks of things your little man is thriving and doing well with his loving mummy's help and if he ends up feeding from a bottle or a breast in the future that is not going to change!

    Okay I need to get ready for princess's dream feed so off I go... Take care everyone, happy Easter!

    'allo, 'allo, 'allo, what's all this then?

    so i have finally made it over, as i said in the other thread below- all go go go here... it's a bit of a big deal transitioning to 2 babies..!

    Em- ipad in bed- now that's sensible.. nice to have your mum visit- are you from south africa too?

    Shadow- BF is probably the biggest issue with newborn babies... there' sos much variation between how people approach it. I persevered here a bit longer with #2 but ultimately found it incredibly difficult to get supply going. I was on motillum too and had a rather silly side effect of incontinence- thankfully this occurred in a public place- that was about the last straw i can tell you!

    to truly blessed, izy and una- that's as far as i can see back... hi to anyoen else reading- hope the babies are treating everyone ok.

    Hi girls! Hope u all and ur bubs are doing well

    Well Kyan is 9wks old tomorrow, and we're off for our first round of injections. Im SO Stressing out about them but know a 10sec sting is better than a life threatening disease.

    He's smiling and "talking" to us, and is such a delight! Usually sleeps for 5 and 4 hours over night which is good.

    Im still having some serious BF supply issues, requiring him to still have formula at each feed, but even 9wks in, im STILL continuing to express and every 24hrs he can have a full bottle of EBM. Ive been on motilium and fenugreek, and just today made some lactaction cookies. Been researching and i doubt its going to happen for us, but we're persevering anyway.

    Just wondering, I know its different for everyone, but when should i expect AF back? Im on the mini pill but Kinda a little worried as DF and i have DTD once the bleeding stopped, and should have been covered by it, BUTTTTT somewhere along the line (And i dont know where) I forgot to take one...serves me right for not reading the back of the packet for the day!!

    I was tempted to pick up a HPT, but im not sure if i would still have lingering pregnancy hormones or anything, so didnt. Am thinking of leaving it till late Next week and testing if nothing has shown up. My body generally bounces back into routine VERY quickly (even when i messed up the pill and stopped taking it and my MC) i went straight back to my normal cycle.... IF thats the case i can expect AF sometime within the next 7-8 days....but who knows?

    Anyway, hope everone is keeping warm in this horrid weather we've been having lately! Off to take the little man to bed so i can hopefully have a nice sleep before his injections tomorrow. TC Girlies... to all the bubbas!

    Hi ladies !

    Sorry it's been so long but I've not dropped off the face of the earth!

    Miss Z grows stronger everyday and is a joy. She took her first steps on Saturday, blows kisses and wraps everyone around her little cute finger !!

    Again I feel the need to say sorry as this is going to be an all about me post.

    Today is Micheal's two year anniversary, which has been a sad day but each year it gets that bit easier. However, this afternoon I received some very sad news, a very dear girl friend went for her twenty week scan. I think you can all tell where this is going. I won't go into details as that's personal to her. She will see the specialist tomorrow and will need to terminate.

    A little background, my friend and I both got UTD at the same time and our girls and we where due one day apart. We've both been on similar life journeys together and my heart breaks that she now has to go through this pain. It makes me want to scream and shout at the world that it's not fair (there's that word again), that such a beautiful person should not have to tread this path (no one should).

    Sorry, I'm ranting but I know you all will understand. Just feel a little sad and need to vent :-(

    Ok thats it for now, thank you for reading. I'll post soon and reply to you all. Big hugs to you all and your beautiful bubs,

    Take care,

    Una xoxo

    Wow it's been ages since being in here.

    Una - sending much love to you & your gf babe. I think the harder thing is you know that pain & it hurts knowing what she is going through & there isn't a way to take away that pain for her (that's what I found anyways).

    How is everyone else going??? Updates please

    OMG Una So sorry to hear that! for ur friend, and u as well. Ur right, its not fair..... The world can be so cruel sometimes I hope she can grieve with support and has a quick recovery. This probably will come out wrong, but at least she has u as a great friend to lean on if she needs. I Found knowing someone who'd been through a loss was more support than someone who hadnt.

    As for us, Lil man is 5 Months come Monday!! I dont know where the time has gone! He's rolling from tummy to back, and almost from his back to his tummy. He's making so many cute noises including raspberries and this past week has REALLY found his voice (My poor ears! All he does is squeal and screech, loud AHHHH's and giggling!) He is really starting to show his personality. Im loving being a mum, and cant wait till we try for #2! We've started solids and he's loving them. So far he's had farex, farex with pear n banana, potato and pumpkin. He's tasted carrot and a few other things as well. Perservering with BF. Though its more EBM than an actual BF. Lack of supply (never got there, never will) = grumpy bub when it comes to a BF, so ive stopped worrying and just express and give him EBM in a bottle when theres a enough for a feed, and formula other times.

    Hope everyones bubbas are doing well

    Hi ladies,

    Happened to wind up on BH after looking for something else on google. Just wanted to say everyone and hope you are all well and the bubbas are all thriving.

    Una very long overdue hugs for the loss your GF had to go through.

    And to Shadow, TB, Izy and Sniper!

    Quick update from us, lil madam is 21 months and beautiful/wonderful/amazing/sweet/crazy etc etc. She had some health issues and I have been quite tired and worn down at times (non stop shocking sleep will do that to you!) but remembering all that we went through to get her has really put things in perspective! Plus she got her grommets in about a month ago and that has helped her a lot, both with not being in pain and being able to hear properly now and learn how to talk!

    Okie dokie time for bed, just wanted to say hi

    Em.
