Hope all is ok now Dragon XX my DS is 12kg aswell, thank god he's walking cause he's bigger than his 2 year old cousin. My hubby works away aswell (not as long as yours though) I swear everything happens while he is away!!
Sorry about BFN Steph, hopefully next one will be a success XX
I'm 16 weeks on Wednesday, it's flying by! We really need it get organised, need to do a room up for DS so we can move him out of the nursery. I gave my second OB appointment on Friday, he seems to be very hands off this time round after a trouble free pregnancy with number 1.
Hope it's all going well for everyone, my DS is learning so much everyday & I swear he gets cuter by the second... I just love the dancing he does when he hears music, he loves the wiggles & some days they are my saviour! He mimics sounds all the time & is saying a few words :-)

Hi ladies, how is everyone.. I can't sleep from a cortisone injection for bursitis so I thought I'd pop in here and tell you about Ella and I.
I just wanted to tell you about post natal depression, especially for the ladies currently pregnant and for the ladies wanting to have another baby.
I had PND, I spoke to a few professionals just after Ella was born. I decided I would be ok without any help. Big mistake, I should of listened... I did get better to a degree but a doctor telling me something serious could be wrong with Ella in January sent me over the edge just before she turned one.
I lost myself.. I was far from reality. I was nearly admitted and I should have been but I again declined help.
I'm far from well, but getting better with medication and counseling. I should of listened and took the advice I was given, I should of started counseling and medication back when Ella was newborn.
I wanted what was best for Ella, to Breastfeed because I felt nothing in my pregnancy was natural and I wanted to just do something naturally and I didn't want to pass medication on through Breastfeeding in case it hurt my baby.
Going through IVF and my husband nearly dying of cancer, well I felt guilty for feeling this way. Ella and my husband was all I ever wanted and I should if been over the moon.
Never ignore these feelings, it's not normal and I could of prevented such a traumatic time for myself, for Ella and for my husband. Please seek help and take advice onboard if you ever feel this way, it's not a nice way to live your life when you don't have to feel so sad, guilty and confused.
Back to my baby girl
Ella is a handful at the moment, so cheeky but a little naughty as well. Biting is a big problem, biting me and biting hard. It's in frustration of not being able to express herself properly or do something she wants. She also hits, pulls hair, and face gouges. I'm glad it's only me it happens to but it does hurt me emotionally sometimes.
I love her to bits and hopefully this phase is over soon as she is starting to put two words together, she talks quite a lot. It's so cute, she is so clever. She amazes me everyday. It seems she is quite advanced for her age, I think that's half the problem.
She never sits still and continually needs stimulation. It's nice to let her play outside some days lol, she loves nothing more than playing in the backyard on her play gym with her best friend Jack the lab and her cat Billy.
We have also started playgroup, mothersgroup and sing, move & dance. She loves the socialisation and it's keeps her stimulated, a win win. It gets busy but she loves it. We have Monday, Wednesday and Friday at home. I'm putting her in childcare for one day a week soon just for some me time. Doctors orders.
Today she was drawing with crayons and decided to pretend she wanted a kiss, cheeky monkey decided to quickly draw down my face and run off giggling...
Enough of the essay, love to hear story's from everyone, I'm sure there are plenty xx

@kmvw great pic, they are cheeky monkey's at this age!
Thanks for sharing your story, to be honest if I hadn't given up breastfeeding when I did (8 weeks) I would have ended up with PND... DH was really worried about me at them time, this time around I'm going into it with eyes wide open, I am going to write myself some letters & get DH to give them to me when thinks I need them, hopefully I won't & I'll be fine this time but at least I will be somewhat prepared.
I'm 24weeks now, only about 14 weeks to go, I should have bub by c-section at about 38 weeks. Can't wait to meet this bub & find out if it's a girl or boy! We've been busy getting DS a big boy room ready & have started to toilet train him slowly... Can't believe I'll have 2 in 14 weeks, crazy really!

Hey everyone, just thought I'd pop in.. 30 weeks today, expecting another boy! DS is an absolute handful, I found the first year such a breeze but not so now he's a toddler, so nervous about having a newborn with a 20monther. Hope you are all well and for those cycling again may it happen ASAP xx

Btw we are wondering if the next one might look a little more Indian like his dad
16-07-2014 20:58 #916
Glad all is well Amy!!

You too @Beta I'm 27 weeks today, about 11 weeks to go :-)
I agree this age is challenging but I also enjoy it so much, I love watching DS learn & I'm amazed every day by what he is understanding.
Congrats on another boy... Have you got names sorted? We're sticking with a surprise so have Bridget picked for a girl & Mitchell for a boy :-)

DS is blonde blue eyes like his Daddy... I'm dark brown (almost black hair) brown eyes so we are wondering the same about #2 whether I will get a look in this time!!

It's really weird thinking about how the second one will look! We certainly never even contemplated such an Anglo looking child with blue eyes. I can't imagine it could happen again (I've got dark hair and brown eyes so it really is a mystery!)
We think the name is picked but might have one more think closer to the time. Your lo is a cutie

Thinking of all you expecting ladies. Wishing you all the best for the birth and that you get time to stop and enjoy them before they grow up. Can't wait to hear how you all go. To everyone else I hope your loving being a mum to a toddler (little cheeky creatures) and to those trying for another miracle sending loads of baby dust. Xxoo
