    Bec, as a veteran of settling night-screaming toddlers who share a room, the best thing I found is to move either the child who has the problem out for a few nights, or move the others out, and then when he cries for his bottle, just pat his back until he relaxes again. I've tried just about everything else and this has always worked for me. If he's able to understand a bit of logic, explain he's too old now for a night bottle and give him something else in place, such as a new teddy. This sometimes works too.

    Afm, I had my (nearly) 32 week scan today and both babies are at the size of 34 weekers! Explains why I feel so bloody heavy. Am going into hospital tomorrow for a week for bedrest as have torn a tummy muscle and its excrutiating. The thought of sharing the house with the tummy pain and 4 kids on school holidays does not appeal. At least this will break the holidays up.

    bgbgbb, wow, big bubbas, Ouch on the tum, try and get lots of rest, though it must be hard with 4 little ones home!

    Macca, yikes, Sawyer has started night waking heaps and not wanting to go back to sleep. I will keep my fingers crossed for you that he handles the move well for all your sakes!

    Mummies to be, I was told on here like what Krystal said, listen to it all and use what you want to use. To add though, don't kick yourself too hard when you decide to do something you said you would NEVER do, I have eaten my words so many times since actually having the bubs. It is hard, but being organised and prepared helps a LOT, and do not be afraid to ask for help!

    has anyone in here been to Cabolture hospital or know of someone who have had mulitples there? thats where im hopefully having mine in August, but im not 100% sure now, my OB has only dealt with multiples once before, the midwives have no idea what there doing (the mid told me this herself when looking for a heartbeat) and everything they offer only seems to be for parents of single babies.

    i read everywhere that with twins you will be seen more often at the hospital but i have been there to see the midwife only twice in the hole 16 weeks, the last time i went was for my 12 weeks N/T scan and i dont go again until the 25th of april! but i am going to get my 19 week scan on the 15th so i guess if there is anything wrong then they can tell me...

    but i do worry that when the time comes, im going to be sitting in the dark while they try and figure out what to do...

    slightly disheartening!

    sorry for my ramble!!! hope everyone is doing well!

    Tiff xx

    hi laides,

    i know your all most likely getting sick of answering all of my questions, but is it normal to have period pain like cramps im 17 weeks and they have been happening since about 9 weeks, i dont have another scan or visit to the midwife til the 15th of april, i have tried to get in before this because there was a 9 weeks gap between visits when there is only meant to be a 2-4 week gap, but they have said there are no appointments available, but yea is this normal or should i be worried?

    the cramps can be anywhere from my pubic bone up to my rib cage, and can last up to 5 minutes!

    i dont no maybe its nothing but is it normal? or is it worth getting it checked out?

    twins2b - I think it'll be surely worthwhile getting it checked out...surely don't want to risk things. Hope all is well.
    Can u feel some sort of movements or flutters??

    Tiff- I had cramping at 18 weeks, spent the night in hospital with threatened prem labour. Knowing what I know now & how things can go, I'd get checked. Better to be safe than sorry.
    I also lived on panadole to fight off labour.
    As for the hospital thing, is there any way you can get to brisbane? After what you said, I think you'd be better off there than with someone who's flying blind.
