My god Time she sounds like a bitch!!!!!! Its up to you what contraception you use not her!
And as for Wrens murmur how dare she not tell you more or give you more information, I have heard its quite common. Let us know when you get an app.
Definitely make a complaint and never see that poor excuse for a doctor ever again xx
Time how fucking awful I would've taken the leaflets out of my bag and shoved them down the back of her throat! Cheeky cow, I agree, complain. Sorry that she detected a heart murmur on Wren, but as you say they aren't all that uncommon and I think they can just correct themselves after a whole (I may be wrong though, sure you'll get lots of helpful info at hospital).
Ally, I'm happy for you that you can shower again!
Kellie, I feel for you hun. Millie's colic and growth spurts are all just merged together into 1 making me have a very grumpy baby and she'll probably stay that way until she's 3/4 months I just keep telling myself it's not forever and to try enjoy her being little as much as possible... because I no longer think I want anymore! She's been so much hard work, I'm not sure I could risk my sanity having another baby grump I hope Oliver is over the worst soon
Inoue, glad you spoke to your OH I hope the situation has been resolved and he has finally given you a good seeing to! Ha!
Millie was 7 weeks on Tuesday and had her weighed today and she's 12lbs 4oz, my little chunk! We went to a breastfeeding group today and it was lovely meeting other bf'ing mums in my area and Amber got to play with the older kids and all the toys, was hell trying to drag her away at the end though! She also started preschool this week, my big girls growing up too quickly just 1 session a week to start her off for now, but she loved it and keeps going on about going back to school! I lost 6lbs on my first week at SW and very pleased with that, I was a bit naughty here and there so trying to be really good this week and see what I can shift! We got an appt through for Millie's jabs but I've already told them we are delaying and ill bring her in end of Feb/beginning of March. Will take her to be checked over still though x
Time, thats awfull!! These doctors have a bloody nerve sometimes . Id be happy to use condoms as a precaution, there as good as anything elce so dont know why she's being judgmental over it?! As others have said, heart murmurs are VERY commen in babies. I believe I had one detected straight after birth and my mum got no info on it and nothing was really said after that and ive got no show of it now (had ecg etc). Dont worry chick, its the way the dam womans put it across that makes it sounds horrific
Scally, glad your scar is healing well, at long last!! Bet that shower was bliss, I love a good shower when you haven't had one in a while . Brilliant that poppy slept from 10-7, Its amazing how babies differ, Reimi can still only manage 4h max before she needs a feed, and we give her a 180ml bottle of thick anti reflux milk, lol. Guess poppy is 2 odd weeks ahead so maybe that will make a difference
Lolly, glad you got booked in for the jabs, weve got ours next Thursday and still debating whether to take marc with me. Also congrats on the BF, I managed 3 weeks till I had enough, I take my hat off to you! .
Afm. We DTD last night . Reimi fell asleep so we had a laugh trying to do it stealthily, gave up in the end and acted normal and she still didnt wake up - good girl . I think my body is about to have a period aswel as getting more spotting/flow. Glad things are going back to normal cycle wise.
Are you noticing your LO getting there own personalities already? I forget Reimi is 7 weeks, she acts more like 7 months! Ive got a right little madam here, hate to think what ive got coming up in the years to come
Yay for dtd Inoue!!!!!!!!!!! I bet u r so happy now! Haha i have never been so happy about other people having sex before! haha!
I think the two weeks makes a huge difference to their sleep, as Poppy has becoming more aware etc she has seemed to need more routine and sleep. I know what you mean about personalities, i think i have a bit of a diva! She wont be put down for long and needs attention constantly when she is awake, she will not be ignored! lol
Lauryn- fantastic about Millies weight, well done! And well done on your weight loss thats great! Glad you had a good time at the breastfeeding group.
I need to go to our one Monday as they do the baby clinic there too, but last time i went i felt it was so clicky, nobody spoke to me, and i had to take Izzy and she was the only older one there and they looked at her like she was a demon child! lol. I got all flustered as Izzy wouldnt leave when i asked her to, Poppy was crying etc, all so stressful! On Monday i am hoping i will be a bit more confident!
Round here you have to take your baby to be measured every 2 weeks, the hv said if i wasnt up to going to the local group she would send someone round (luckily its 2 mins up the road), is that the same where u guys are? I also have to take her anyway in two weeks to get her head measured again to check its growing, i am sure it is though it looks bigger!
OMG it was soooooo good! . Looking forward to going on pill so no more condoms (marc hates them!). Reimi only needs to get measured once a month at our local hospital so ill go about 10th feb, glad im not the only one with a diva child. She gets a right monk on when I wipe eye boogers away! Now in my fitness gear trying to get my ass through a 20 min zumba dvd, god its hard work! I can see my belly flab going down though so it must be doing something! Lol.
Reimi has got a semi routine, basically sleep from 10pm - 2am, feed till 3am, sleep 3am - 6am then dose for the rest of the morning in her swing. Shes very alert/awake in late afternoon, evening. Maybe ill be tryping what you put in two weeks time x
Thanks guys, after reading more I am a lt less worried, just made at how she told me and didn't explain a thing. Will be looking forward to speaking to a specialist at the hospital. But normally they correct themselves.
Wow lauryn what a little chunk millie is that's great! Haven't heard from my hv for 16 days now and Dr didn't weigh wren yesterday so I've no idea what she weighs. The lack of follow up care in yorkshire is ridiculous. May call my hv this afternoon and ask what is going on!
Well done on the weight loss that is fab!
I still have had no letters through about vaccinations either but I have definitely decided to delay her schedule by a month or two.
Glad you dtd inoue!bet you feel a lot better for it haha!! You're right about seeing a personality coming.. Wren is a little monkey!
We've got an ok routine going now too, we normally get her to bed about 9, up at 1, feeds for 10 mins then up at 4 again feeds for 10 mins, then up at 6 which she doesn't normally want food she's just giggling away to herself!! So we put her in bed between us and snuggle for an hour!!
Really hope she takes after poppy and only gets better!
Hi ladies! Sorry I've been absent, life's been hectic as I'm back at work now, crazy!
Glad to hear your babies are all doing well! Time sorry to hear about wrens heart murmer, but is definitely very common, let us know how her appt goes
Inoue, yay for DTD! We still haven't, haven't had a chance! Lee is back so late from work and Flynn has a fussy evening period so there is really no time at all, hopefully this weekend, I'm definitely keen! ;-)
Lauryn great job on Millie's weight :-) Flynn is only 11 lb but he has bronchialitus so had a few days of not feeding well, he's dropped from the 75th centime to below the 50th but I'm not too worried
Ally glad scar is healing finally, it's awful what you've been through, c sections are so debilitating and come with so many other issues
Kellie, not long until Oliver will be over this growth spurt stage, before you know it hell be crawling and playing, I'm so looking forward to that but can't believe my baby is 7 almost 8 weeks already!
Flynn is generally doing well, he has a bath at 6.30 after some play time then boob and on good days sleeps until 9.30/10 then has a bottle of expressed and fingers crossed goes back to sleep until 3/4 and then back to sleep till 7/8 after a feed. He's a pretty good night time sleeper but for the past few nights has woken us up choking in the night on his own mucus I'm guessing. Horrible and scary but then he's back to normal, very strange!
Hey pops! Hows Flynn doing now? Is he still choking? He sounds like a very good sleeper! how is it being back at work?
Time- Wren sounds like a good sleeper too! Your after care sounds so bad! They do seem good round here for that, checking their weight etc.
I really love that Poppy is so good with naps during the day and she does go long during the night, but i seriously would love her to go down earlier! We managed one night at 8.45, but usually its 10, or more like 11. We have been trying to get her down earlier, bath at 7, then boob and then trying to put her down, but she can be asleep on the boob, put her down and she screams the place down, this cycle continues until 11! lol. We tried doing it all earlier tonight thinking she might be getting overtired, but no the same thing happened. Any ideas? Do i just go with the flow and try and make it earlier as she gets older?
Poppy was weighed today she is now 11 5! Thats over a pound on in two weeks, they are happy with how she is doing, and her head has grown too, so that looks all ok!
Glad her head circumference is ok now Scally . I also think my little Reimi is a chuffer as she was 11lb 3oz at 6 weks - god knows what she is now! .
No idea with how to get them to bed earlier, Reimi is the same. We got her down at 9pm before but its more like 11pm when she will entertain sleeping. We always do an anti reflux bottle before bed as it fills her up for longer but even if we give her it at 8:30pm, she still wants to stay awake till 10:30ish. Dont think there's much we can do other than go with the flow.
Were booking a week away in Weymouth for holiday in May, really looking forward to out first holiday with Reimi . Im usually a hotel only person but weve got the best upgraded caravan we can so im hoping its nice. Then im back to work 2 weeks after that, the more time goes by, the more I want to be a sahm . Not going to like going back.
Marcs also getting rid of his 2 seater sports car for a nice Renault Laguna, will be handy for May!
I started my period 3 days ago, glad ive got a 'cycle' now I can work on. Feels wierd though that im not planning an ovulation day in 10 days time!
Wow well done on Poppy's gain ally! You must be making jersey cream like me how is your scar? Millie's the same and will usually go down properly at around 11, sometimes later. I'm not too bothered right now as I think she's far too young to be in any sort of routine. We'll probably look at putting her in her cot when she's around 4 months old as that's what we did with Amber, and hopefully we can start some sort of bedtime routine then.
Inoue, I'm not taking Millie for her jabs that's what I meant in my last post. We got an appt through but I've cancelled it, will reschedule in the next couple of months well done Reimi on her weight gain too! I know what you mean about their little personalities starting to shine through - its so amazing to see. I am already forgetting what Millie as a newborn was like, time is just flying by.
Pops, poor little Flynn - how is he now? That's still a marvellous weight and I'm sure he'll make up for the loss in no time happy 8 weeks to Flynn & Millie too!
Not much new to report here - the colief has really done the trick for Millie's colic and she's such a happier baby, I'm so relieved and pleased! We have just booked our summer holiday to Menorca, I can't wait for our first family holiday of 4! Hoping the girls don't run circles around us too much when we are out there Amber was always easiest as a immobile baby on holidays so I'm sure it'll be the same with Millie, and it'll be Amber that's hard work!
