    But...
    Hubby and I tried for number 5. In the 11th month of trying, I fell pregnant finally. Lost it at 8 weeks last October and DH said no more trying. I'm supposed to be going on Mirena soon (because I'm not having anymore babies and I suffer from menorrhagia, so it makes sense) but it just makes me terribly sad. To think that's it. I now don't get that baby that I envisioned.

    I know I don't really have a whole lot of cause for the sadness, what with my 4 babies I already have. That's why it's in the not so serious vent haha. But I wanted to vent all the same.
    It makes sense you feel sad. Your grieving the loss of not only a lost pregnancy, you are also grieving what could have been and what may never be. It's normal and it's OK to feel that way. It's not ungrateful of you at all. It is most definitely a valid cause to feel this way. It's a feeling you have to process and work through.

    Big hugs

    exactly what DSS has said. Ahalfdozen you are having quite valid feelings. I felt a little grief when my hubby had a vasectomy, 32 years ago when we had had our last baby, who was number four. Accept your feelings and let them process in their own time. hugs, marie.

    Default The Not So Serious Vent Thread #7

    At a play centre and they have absolutely nothing healthy to eat. When I asked if they still do fruit salad the response was "our fruit order doesn't come in until tomorrow so we have none" - well go to Woolies 5 minutes away and buy some! Their only options are chips, chocolates, cookies, etc., or deep fried food. Ridiculous when they're catering for little kids!

    ETA just spotted a garden salad on the menu - I don't know many kids who would happily sit down and eat a garden salad, how about catering for your target market with veggie sticks and dips, fruit salad, cheese and crackers or a tasting plate?!

    I miss my mum, she's been away for the last week, thank god she's back tomorrow. I have done something to my neck, it feels really weak and unstable, and the pain is now traveling to my shoulders. If mum was here, she would be here straight away if I asked here to watch my baby while I go and get a massage. I only have MIL to call on (I know I'm luckier than many others who have no one) but she makes me feel like it's a massive inconvenience whenever I ask her to do something like that for me. I think I'll just deal with it myself til hubby is home tomorrow.

    DS just put about 4 baths worth of Alpha Keri bath oil in his bath. It took him 2 seconds. How am I going to get that clean?! Actually... How am I going to get him out without dropping him?! Guess he's sitting in the bath til DH gets home. DH can drop him.

    DS2 has just learned "mama", but only says it while whinging or crying. Which is all the time at the moment. So I'm right there with you!

    How did you go? I would suggest a drain, fill, rinse, repeat option, but considering this was last night, it's a bit late! Hopefully he got out unscathed

    DH got him out using face washers to grip him. No dropping involved. I cleaned the bath with bleach and rinsed well. Covered the toys with extra hot water and drained. Will do it again tomorrow. There's still some residue. DS's skin feels almost as soft as DD's today. And his hair has gone into really tight ringlets.
