Kismet Lucy has never really eaten dinner until this year which i put down to be starving after school. I find she's really hungry around 430 so i give her and scarlett dinner at 5. For the past few years tho dinner has been completely wasted in our house. I tried everything to encourage her to eat better but nothing worked and if it did only for a few meals then she went back to eating very little. She's still got quite a small appetite. It's such a frustrating thing esp when other kids eat so much and so many different types of food.
Alittle i have also had no real problems with supply and i'm 40. I do notice tho that if i'm really busy at the end of the day with the kids my milk supply drops so i comp feed him with formula. But other than that it's been fine. He has milk pouring out of his mouth some days so i know it's still flowing. I did take bf vitamins for the first few months and i oticed they helped a lot.
Amum i'm so happy it's turned out so well. It's funny with both girls once i weaned them they suddenly seemed to grown before my eyes, and were no longer babies. I fed lucy til 15 months and Scarlett i stopped at 12 months as my left nipple was hanging by a thread as she chewed it almost off. I only went that long as she refused formula from either a bottle or a cup so i was stuck. I'll keep feeding Marc for a few more months at least. He's my last baby afterall.
JFB love that dream. Good luck tomorrow.
AFM well my little dynamo Scarlett had another fall today but this time blacked out so back to the hospital in the ambulance this time with me and Marc. She was fine in the end but it was so scary. God this year's been tough with losing 2 furbabies and 3 trips to emergency with scarlett and lucy combined, and all that with a new baby and no family support. What is it we al say - suck it up Princess!

Kismet one thing i meant to ask last night was does Evie eat banana bread? It's one thing both my girls will eat so i often give them a snack of toasted banana bread and a hot chocolate before bed. It's not perfect but it's fiilling and better then sweets or cakes or biscuits.
Lucy was almost 5 before she ever said "i'm hungry". Food just isn't a big deal to her.

Jfb - Good luck for your scan today.......bet you can't wait to see what bubba looks like now
Kismet - Have you tried evie on fruit bread/toast. Kade loves it and would eat a whole loaf if i let him....just another suggestion.
Sonja - OMG you must now have nerves of steel.....that is scary...glad to hear she is ok.......
Kade just fell over on the driveway and hit is head, he has a nice graze and bump on his forehead now......they scare the living daylights out of you

Sonja - I'm glad Scarlett is ok, very scary, was she concussed? Evie won't touch banana, or any fruit for that matter, and have thought about banana bread but not sure she will like it but will give it a ago. I do think it depends on the times I feed her as well, she's never hungry after a nap so I have to wait at least an hour before giving her anything. Last night I was cooking dinner and she was whingey so I gave her a cruskit & she gobbled it, she didn't want to wait then. It's hard to pick when she wants to eat sometimes. She almost always eats when In the Night Garden or Giggle & Hoot is on, her favourite shows and she will sit there glued to it while I shovle food into her but not lately, it's times like this I wish she could talk to tell me when she wants something.
Amum - I've tried sultana bread but she picks out the sultanas bcs she hates them. I think she gets that from me, I gag on sultanas and will pick them out of my cereal . As I mentioned to Sonja, she hates banana or any fruit except pureed apple and pears, I think I'm at fault for that one too bcs I'm not a big fruit eater. I tried her on some mango the other day and she gagged! It's one fruit I love, she ate it after alot of coaxing when I put it in yogurt though. It must be a texture thing she's not fussed on. She is a fussy eater but apparently better than I ever was so says my mum, so I think I'm on an uphill battle with her.
JFB - good luck today.

back, scan went great, NT measure was even under average so very very good and nasal bone v good they said, my bloods were not that great tho, still im classed overall as low risk of downs 1:515. i asked what the bloods meant (cos i couldnt help comapre this result to Harry of course who was 1:3450 risk) and she explained , the hcg and PAPP are meant to both be around 1, my hcg is high at 2.47 and the papp at bit low at 0.75, she did say that they do sometimes see this result with ivf preg tho and thats what gave me the result other wsie it would have been more like harry's. i got her to explain the CVS but im thinking of not having it as i said i wouldnt have it unless deemed high risk and the other markers were excellent.....everyone i know who had these blood results had a ...girl??? anyway i will discuss with DH as with harry the risk was sooooooooo low so there was absolutely no doubt.....but i dont think so.
maybe u girls can remind me of your scores alst time and what u did?
sonja: hope scarlett is ok!
kismet: i can shovel in anything when ITNG is on too usually.......H loves Giggle and Hoot too! they should get together.

JFB i can't really remember my scores, except that for all 3 pregnancies my risk was around 1:1500 so i didn't go any further. I didn't find out the other numbers so sorry can't help there. Sounds all good to me tho!
Kismet the banana bread might be worth a try. Scarlett won't eat bananas but will eat banana bread, so maybe? It's so hard not to blame yourself when they're picky. I hate red meat and haven't eaten it for 20 years and Lucy won't touch the stuff. Gags if she smells cooked red meat. But Scarlett will eat meat, so who knows where they get their quirks from.

JFB - I'm pretty sure my results were similar, will try and find the report. I think it's also age related too I believe, so the results differ the older you get, I think that's what I was told but can't quite remember. My ob said I could have the amnio if I chose but I didn't and he said he was happy with my decision as he believed it all looked good. I'm sure everything will be fine.
19-10-2011 17:40 #309
Jfb. Your results all almost exactly the same as mine. I think we were 1;545 or something. We decided against cvs as the risk of miscarriage was higher than something being wrong.
Ruby was 1:85 and it was all due to bloods. Her NT measurements were all low, but as you know she was perfect.
19-10-2011 17:42 #310
Oh and my ob thought we made the right decision not having cvs or amnio with out current risk factor
