Woop Woop!! Can not believe I have found you guys!!!! Can not also believe I remembered my password after all this time especially with my mashed mummy mind!
How are all you lovely ladies and how are your little ones?
I'm well. loving being a mummy (ive been soooo busy hence why I've been missing some time!!)
James is 8.5 months old now it's gone solo fast! He's a little sweety and such a good happy smiley boy.
Had a few scary moments along the way so far but we are doing fine now.
He got referred to the hospital by my doctor (she's young, only just qaulified and has no experience of babies at all). He wasn't sitting up without cushions and she said that she thought there could be a problem with his spine. We were worried out of our minds!!
We saw the hospital specialist who assured us after checking James over that he was fine. She said that because he was very small a birth (5lb 6oz) and still a petite little one that he would just take a little longer to develop stronger muscles. Hes doing great now thou and finally able to sit. It does mean thou that he's not yet crawling (but again a lot of baby's aren't at this age anyway). Just glad he's ok!
He's ahead in other ways thou so I've stopped following baby milestone charts etc as they are completely wrong for us. I've decided he will do it all when he's ready.
At the moment we are still trying to master using a tippy cup and get off bottles which is proving tricky! Eating is going fab thou!
Glad to hear that things are going well for you, and glad you're following you're own intuition with regards to James's milestones, we're doing that with Poppy after all the hoo ha with her weight. I just trust my instincts and we seem to be getting along just fine.
Tonight is the first night we have put Poppy up in her cot before going to bed ourselves. Put her up there at half 8 as she was getting cranky (after a fun filled Easter day with lots of family).
Normally I let her fall asleep on her nest bed in the lounge with me, then take her up when I go to bed at about half 10, get her changed, give her a feed and then she goes down for the rest of the night til about 8am.
I think I need to do this, or I'll never be able to move her into her own room, but I hate not having her with me, it just feels wrong!
I know it'll get easier, and I've just been to check on her and she's already fast asleep, but that doesn't help me at the moment! My little girl is growing up!
She's been in the cot since about 8 weeks, just last night was the first night of putting her up there before we went up.
It was actually ok. I went to bed at about half 10 and she was still sound asleep, then she woke by herself at around 11 and had her bottle then went back to sleep.
She woke at 4 and wanted a feed! This never happens, she has slept through for a good 10 hours every night since about 10/12 weeks. I'm worried we've hit the dreaded 4 month sleep regression phase. I thought perhaps it would pass us by (ever hopeful!), but now I'm starting to worry! I know it's only 1 night so far and may have been a blip, so we'll have to see what happens tonight.
Ooooh Sideways, just saw your 'Mommy of 1 & WTT May 2012', that's so exciting that you're gonna be trying again as of next month! I would love to have another close to Poppy but we're gonna wait 2 years to make sure we're back in a financially stable place. I wish we were able to try again sooner though. Xx
Bonnie did the same thing when she was Poppy's age. But, after maybe 3-4 nights, she was back to normal. And, Bonnie has also been STTN since she was 8 weeks so we were nervous that she was reverting back to her newborn days! lol Hopefully Poppy (gosh I love that name!!) will not make this a habit!
Yes ma'am, I have some issues with my cycle ever since having her. Well honestly, I had the issues before I had her... not sure if you remember but I had to get progesterone treatments to force-start my cycle after 70+ days of no ovulation. The same thing is happening again, and DH and I really wanted to NTNP in May, but it's kind of hard to NTNP when there's nothing to try for or prevent since you're not ovulating!! So the plan is, May 1 I call the doctor's office, regardless of where I'm at in my cycle and get some things planned. If I've started another cycle by then, I am to schedule CD21 bloodwork. If I've not started my cycle, I'm to get a script for progesterone called in. So, this means we're moving right into TTC come May. Exciting!!
