MG. we've been wondering about the toddler bed too. At the moment H is in a bassinet with us, but we can't fit a cot in here, so he's going to have to go in with Ruby when he grows out of the bassinet. We don't want to have to buy another cot so were hoping she would go into a toddler bed. She loves her cot though, won't even sleep in bed with us so it should be interesting. Let us know how S goes

Kismet - I have everything crossed for you...and you are right, at least you can say to Evie and know in your heart that yes you did try and you never know........having the break and not so much pressure on yourself could be that magic trick for your next miracle.....good on you.......
Kel - I hope you get some sleep soon
Hi to everyone...hope you all have a great day

Kismet! I think you would have regretted not trying, so kudos to you for biting the bullet and looking into it. I have everything crossed it will work for you. It's a great idea to wait a bit too, and get that DHEA working it's magic.
Kel - Henry - you need to play nice for mumma. Will keep you posted about the bed. DH said he tried to get S into the bed last night, but he thought S was a bit scared. We are starting to read his bedtime books in bed. I also went out with some mums last night who said when their kids moved into the big bed, they still thought they couldn't' get out due to the bed rail. When S's bd comes and we get a rail on we may have more luck, but in the meantime hopefully this won't be doing any harm. REality is we have DH's sister's old cot to use if we need, but I would really like to just use the one we have for Archie, and S can be a big boy in his own bed. He has started wanting us to feed him and climbing into the pram bassinet if we are out, and crawling around the house a bit. I think he is feeling Archie's presence a little more keenly ATM.

Hi all, just popped in to see if any news from M4N yet...nope. Are you lurking M4N?
BK - hope H has settled down for you, growth spurt I reckon, not that he needs to be doing much growing!, they should be called hell spurts.
AFU - have started metformin and dhea, metformin already making me feel sick, suppose to wean myself onto it and increase dose gradually but not tolerating it well. Just hope it helps me lose a few kgs then it will be worth it.
Evie decided it's funny to walk around with her eyes shut until she smacked into the door way, now she has a nice bump on her head.
Enjoy the weekend

Kismet the image of Evie doing tat is way too funny the things they do it cracks me up.
Moong I have been wondering when to move Ash to a bed, no rush for us. How is Arcie? Do you think it's easier 2nd time?
Amum Ash is into everything! I started the "thinking spot" this week, he's not very impressed let me tell you. I love this age they are just so much fun.
Kel havevyou tried Infants Friend for the wind? Ash had it quite bad at around 5 weeks, he also fed a lot like H.
Alittle how are you going on your 2ww?
M4N getting excited for you?
well I have Ash booked in to start daycare just after his birthday in March. I can't wait as I think he will really love it.
DH home tomorrow

Nessie - glad DH is back tomorrow.
Archie is great. Je is the smiliest baby and just beams when he sees us. He LOVES Spencer too - he follows him around with his eyes. I think it is easier second time around in the fact that you know basically what you are doing and don't stress quite so much. That being said, Archie is VERY easy to look after, so I may be totally unrealistic. I think the key is that second time around you KNOW things happen in cycles and they will end, so you know you just need to get through "it".

Moongazer, well said. Sounds like Archie is a being a wonderful bubs. He sounds like a little sweetie.
Nessie, must be nice to have DH home. When is Ash's birthday? Amberly's is in March too - the 2nd. Going through all of the challenges of organising and deciding what to do. I'm a bit of a slacker, but I've decided to go the playcentre and have it catered. I'll make the cake - which I'm also nervous about. Going the Hoot theme.... so a practice run to see if the no egg, no wheat, no dairy cake will taste any good???? and to see if I can manage fondant.
Kismet, , had a chuckle re Evie's antics. Funny the things littlies think to try in their little world of exploration. Wishing you every ounce of luck with your cycle. I think it's a good thing you've got some time to get the DHEA going, let's hope that having Evie has your body primed to fall pregnant easily this time... and sprinkled with a bit of DHEA to keep those eggs nice and healthy.
BK, hope you've managed a little more sleep
AFU, A's picked up her first cold from Daycare, but thankfully it does not seem to have progressed into anything nasty. Have been putting her down for morning and afternoon sleeps religiously and she is sleeping really well, so I'm hoping that is helping her cold not to get nastier. I had my first day of placement at a daycare centre in the nursery (studying Cert III in Children's services) and it was a real eye opener. Those women work so hard... they really don't get paid enough. I worked bl**dy hard too. I seemed to be the pacifier for all the new screaming bubbas, so despite it not being practice to constantly pick the little ones up, because they were new it was important to settle them. I managed to do quite well to my surprise, so ended up with four little ones crying and putting arms out for me to pick them up. Heart breaking, but also very rewarding being able to calm and settle them. I was absolutely exhausted end of day and my arms and legs were so sore the following couple of days. Thank goodness I"m only doing it one day a week whilst A is in daycare. It is also a good distraction for me, as I was constantly stressing about her, but now am just too busy. All that and my studies have been a great distraction from the 2ww too. Coping better this time. One more week to go til D day or BT day.

Alittle - you must have some patience! I for one could not handle working in a daycare centre. Minding a couple of kids is ok but not the number they have per carer especially when they're new and settling in. The 1st day I took Evie this year, all the kids were new except for her and they screamed all day long apparently, even the senior carer was over it that day, it frightened Evie as well as she's not a screamer and wasn't use to the noise. It looks pretty easy when they're all happy and playing, the carers are just sitting around watching them, which is what I see every afternoon when I pick Evie up. I would imagine a full day of it would be exhausting. I have entertained the thought of doing home childcare if I was to find a bigger house, a good way to earn money from home but still would have to find some patience I think (I think I'm much better now than I use to be ).
Moon - what a good little bub you have . My mum always said you make all your mistakes with the 1st one and each kid after that you get more and more relaxed to the point nothing worries you...until they're teenagers.
Nessie - I'd like to see how the thinking spot works
got to go, Miss Evie has woken up, didn't sleep long
