Nessie - remember you can always call me when you want. I'm babysitting again on the weekend (hopefully this time there will be no germs to catch!) you and Ash are welcome to come visit if you want, Ash will have 2 playmates or I can catch up with you anytime after that.
JFB - mmm nope, not sleeping well atm. Evie has been out of whack for about a week, I'm SO tired because she's been waking, the other night I ended up getting her up and letting her play for 1/2 hr while I dozed on the lounge & gave her a bottle to get her back to sleep, she didn't eat much for dinner so figured she'd be hungry. My usual thing to do is check on her before I go to bed and put and extra blanket on her if she needs it but she's been waking when I do it now, very frustrating, but also she's been waking later on which I think is her teeth, I can see them. She's had a temp most of the weekend too which I thought was teething however today she is a snot bag again, so who knows! I just wish these teeth would make an appearance, teething sucks! I'm not used to her waking because she's always been a good sleeper at night. The not eating thing is very frustrating too, so much food is getting wasted but beside that I worry she's not getting enough. I've been wanting to cut down her bottles but think she needs them if she's not eating much, she still has 3 at times, sometimes just 2. She seems to have enough energy though.
Thinking of changing around when I give Evie her bottles to see if it makes any difference. When do you give H his?
Amum - well said. I hated the question when I was pregnant 'do you want a boy or girl' - WhoTF cares!! I want a healthy one is all I say. I have a friend that's pregnant for the 2nd time, her 1st was a girl and she was 'disappointed' she's having a boy this time - I was so shocked she admitted it, some people are NEVER happy. Mum had 3 boys before me and my dad forgot to ask if I was a boy or girl (he wasn't at the birth) and when mum told him he nearly fell of his perch, wasn't expecting it but didn't matter either way, but mum's sister had 4 boys and everyone use to say to her she must be disappointed she never had a girl - what an awful thing to say, it use to offend her.

H gets a bottle before his sleep in the day so about 12pm (about 180ml) and his nighty time bot at about 6.30 - 6.45pm.(250ml)..he doesnt go to bed til about 8pm these days, trying to get it back to 7.30pm. we stopped the little bit of bot he would get on waking and now he just has breakfast and water. we are stopping giving him a top up b4 bed too as of last night.

Hope you're all well. It's just a quick one from me as I'm about to head off to play group.
JFB, have been trying so hard to stay calm and relaxed about FET, but am really struggling. I have scan and blood test coming Friday to check lining and surge in readiness for transfer, but have not really done anything in preparation, so am feeling rather guilty. I have been taking folic acid and lots of vitamins, so hopefully that will help. I so wish accupuncture would work for me, but it does quite the opposite to making me feel relaxed. I find it so uncomfortable and can't relax at all. Maybe a nice massage is in order this week. A's allergy are proving to be a real challenge.... so far, sweet potato, zucchini and pear make her break out really badly with eczema, so we are only doing pumpkin, broccoli (which she hates) and apple (which she's not that wrapped in either). It's rather frustrating, but we will keep on trying new things until we find the ones that are ok. Otherwise she is sleeping and eating really well, so am really blessed that she is such a good girl considering this pesky eczema she is plagued with.
Will catch up on everyone's news later. Take care everyone and have a great day.

Yup Yup - The gender thing!! Der! I'm happy with whatever I get thank you very much!!! I honestly don't care what we have on board! Give me a healthy and happy one and I will be content.
Today S is at childcare and I have started washing bits and bobs and packing my bag. It's becoming real to me now!! OMG!! I'm having a baby!! WTF!! How did THIS happen!
Had a bit of gastro on the weekend, thanks to the toilets at the Wiggles I believe!! It's the ONLY thing DH and I did differently on Saturday!! Not a problem. Woke in the early hours feeling and then BAM - I was out for the count. Went to the mat unit to make sure bub was ok, which s/he was, and came back home to spend the day in bed and a total of about 10 minutes in the lounge room while S was awake!! Feeling better today but a bit tired. Spurred me on to get a few things done - oh, like my bag!!
Sonja - so sorry about your furbaby. Glad he had a wonderful last day with you. Hope Lucy and Scarlett are ok with it too. Marc is a clever boy sitting up already!!!
Kismet - Spencer goes WAY off food when he's teething, and the molars always take so long o come through. Hope Evie feels better soon.
Nessie - glad you got away and were able to do some escaping. You HAVE been through so much. You deserve joy in your life.
Alittle - good luck with your scan etc on Friday! Sometimes the best preparation is to do no prep and go in fresh.

Amum - You seem to be doing quite well and in a great place at the moment!!
Swede - glad your doggy is ok too. I've heard about these ticks - horrible. OMG - I can't believe Archie is 9 months already!
As I mentioned above, we went to the Wiggles concert. Spencer LOVED it!!! He had an absolute ball and there was so much to look at and to stimulate his little mind! Came home with a balloon, lots of colouring in books, a wiggles paper crown and a big red car light up wand. My God - what a cash cow for those guys!!!! Wish I'd thought about getting into kids entertainment! S we have been listening to Spencer singing rock a bye you bear and toot toot chugga chugga big red car for the weekend.
He is growing up so much and giving us new surprises every day. DH told me he saw S fiddling around up on the breakfast bar yesterday then he disappeared. DH looked over the bar and Spencer had laid out a wrap which we use for nappy changes now, and was lying on the wrap, clutching for dear life onto a nappy and punching a poo out! Would have been nice if he waited there for DH to clean him up, but as soon as he did his business he was off, running about and DH had to catch him to change his nappy. Little man may be ready for TT soon I think!!

i just read in another thread an article apparently in some paper on the weekend about how gender selection should be legalised in aust with ivf.........someone did mention that it could open the door for more embryo donation BUT really are we a society so desperate and expect to get what we want ALL THE TIME now that we have to stoop to this? i mean thats life, u dont get what u want all the time, isnt that a value still? is for me.......there was another article in the sunday magazine about coping with infertility and god i tell you it made me realise that infertility has left some scars on me despite "success"....i felt quite upset reading these ladies and couples stories, the insensitivity they had endured etc it is such an isolating xpereince and no one else gets it, prob why im on here a lot

JFB while I completely hate this "get what you want when you want it" life we live in, it's life these days. It's one of the reasons I was happy to leave inner city living and move to the beach for a much simpler life. We're working very hard to get our kids back to a life where presents happened on special occasions, not bec I felt guilty about never being home with them bec I always worked.
But for a lot of people the gender thing is really an issue and TBH honest if it saves a baby being neglected or aborted bec it was the "wrong" gender then I guess I support it?? As a midwife my mother saw so many women scared of producing the wrong gender for their husbands it really saddened her. And that was 30 years ago.
You're right no one really gets infertility except the couple going through, in the same way we can't understand another person's struggle with cancer, or depression. I gave up expecting people to get it along time ago. Thank god for forums like these!
MG OMG I can't believe you've only got 6 weeks to go. I am so excited for you. I love the last few weeks of pregnancy (despite feeling totally crapola) - the excitement building with each passing day as you get closer and closer to meeting your baby . Ooh makes me want another one , but not going to happen. Marc's so much more settled at night (still not sleeping through - not going to happen til his weaned I reckon) I don't think I could do a newborn again!
Kismet Scarlett was a great eater until teething then she went off food never to really return. Is there anything Evie will eat regularly? The deal I've struck with the kids is that 3 nights a week I feed them what I think they should eat and the other 2 weeknights they get what I call orange dinner - chicken nuggets or fish fingers. We waste a lot of food in this house too - but it does get easier as they get older. Lucy knows she has to try everything I put on her plate whether she wants to or not.
Alittle I hope all goes well for your FET. The food thing sounds hard. I'd never heard of allergies to some of those vegetables before. Glad to hear though you're getting some sleep at night these days.
ok better go the boy is waking..

Sonja - as the others have said - sorry to hear about your dog. Glad you're having a sweet life by the beach though... we'd also get out of the city altogether if we could but DH is too specialised and loves his job - bugger!
I agree have a holiday when you've only got one child - and I also had the advice to travel before they crawl or have an opinion to voice - so we went to Japan before DS was 6 months - rice paper walls, the works - you can imagine how badly that would go with older multiple kids he he!!
Amum - congrats on the weaning - 18 months is an excellent effort - you too are a supermom!!
Alittle - GOOD LUCK on Friday - hope your lining is superb and you get to meet up with a lovely thawed and healthy embryo soon after. So cool that you can share a 2WW with Lochnessie! I also couldn't do acu - it stresses me out too - yikes!
Kismet - I know I'm a little late with this conversation - but 'one born every minute' I absolutely LOVE! My DH leaves the room in disgust but I watch it and cry all the way through it. I must be a sadist! I also had a horrific natural birth and will no doubt have another - scream away I say, if it helps do it
I hope Evie gets her appetite (and teeth) soon... Did she end up getting really sick with her snotty nose?
MG - wow, 6 weeks!! All this packing/gastro and cleaning sounds like it's fast approaching! I'll be very interested to know how Spencer copes with a new addition to the family - I'm also worried about it
Lochnessie - glad you had a great holiday and I do hope life settles a bit for you now. Your mom would be really proud of you .... and I hope a BFP is coming up for you too !!
JF - thanks for asking - we move the first 2 weeks of November... had a hard time negotiating the final sale of this place so hopefully it's smooth sailing from here on... As for the gender selection - I agree it's awful. Reminds me of the chinese and their one child policy and now they all have boys everywhere - madness!??
AFM - I'm so pleased to read everyone talking about hard boobs/mastitis etc... I had SO much trouble with under milk supply and I was hell bent on BF'ing, and I wondered if it might be an IVF phenomenon.. ie. not enough hormones/too old etc etc, but you've all reassured me that it's not necessarily the case. I hope my next bub is a good feeder with NO allergies!
I'm stacking on the weight now - 1.7kg this week, 1 kg last week!! Better stop eating crap I think. Now getting heartburn at night (never had this before) and I feel big and awkward already!! Still 4 months to go!!!!!!!!
