Sad the posts have stopped in the other thread but I agree it's for the best.
Firstly, hakuna huge congrats Hun!!! how long did it take this time round?
Soleil thanks for your comments about Penny, MIL also says lips like rosebuds!
Mrsmax, when you introduced formula how did you do it? Does Eva sleep better on a night with a bottle?
Wow hadn't even considered that my period might not start! I know you're less fertile bf'ing but I didn't realise no AF's! That's a good thing though right?
Has regal found us yet? Crumbs hasn't been on the thread for AGES, I'm sure she'll find us though. And Aisak?
AFM, penny has colic & has been/is hard work! She seems to be getting a bit better with the gripe water, the infacol was useless on her... I've been pretty unhappy that she's not been a happy baby & haven't been enjoying her, but things are on the up, she's smiling, cooing, watching me, caught her eyes following the cat the other day lol. She's sleeping better at night too
Aww poor Penny. Aw poor mom too because you must be sleep deprived. Sometimes Ani would scream for no apparent reason when she was very little. Usually the poor thing had gas because I could feel her flexing her tummy trying to poop. I'm sure things will get easier soon!
Phew I have a grumpy baby at the moment. She's wayyy overtired. Went out to lunch with MIL and grandma and lunch ended up being later afternoon right when she usually has her afternoon nap. I'm letting her cry for a couple minutes because I know she barely slept at all today.
Hi ladies! So happy for this thread! Love the title.
Had a weird week.
Dh's family has been in an uproar all week until yesterday because his grand called him to specifically express that dh was not kind to a younger family member last month(and that he never has been) and that's why we can't get pregnant.
This seriously blind sided me because really it couldn't be further from the truth. Anyway, I was very hurt especially since she was the only person on his side that we discussed trying to have a baby this year. She said she would pray for us but instead she throws it back up in our faces months later. EXACTLY why we've been private thus far. We shouldn't have doubted ourselves.
DH was completely done. Then so many people got involved quick to take sides. I had to do lot's of damage control this week. He looks up to his grand so much. She and he have always had a strong relationship.
I absolutely can't believe she'd be that spiteful.
After much consoling and encouragement DH talked things out with her. They made amends but dh seems like he will hold a grudge behind this.
Meanwhile, I'm over here thinking...dang is this a Karma thing. I'm not superstitious but it is a cultural norm to blame the unexplained on things beyond our control.
Well that's about it over here. Wish I had something better to say.
regal. Sorry she said that. You are always so positive and friendly in your posts even when things are down so I don't see why karma would be coming to bite your arse. Some of the girls I went to school with were nasty cows and yet they pop them out and live on govt welfare - no karma coming to bite them.
Hope your DH is okay and this doesn't screw up his relationship with his grand.
Sorry to hear about that Regal - as MsJ said you are always so positive and supportive and wonderful on these threads that I cant imagine you are any different in RL. I truely think people dont realise just how crucifying and horrendous infertility is - I doubt people would say such things if we had another illness. People can just be so damn insensitive to it - I am glad they patched things up, but I suspect it will take a while for your DH to truely forgive or forget. You may have read that my MIL basically said that our infertility was due to my inability to enjoy sex and my general attitude - people can just be so rude about it - I cant imagine someone saying that a disability or mentall illness was "karma" and so they sould treat infertility with th same sensitvityl Sigh.
Sounds like you were a great support - how do you feel though? Must have peed you off!! Hope
