apple- happy belated birthday!!! glad u had a nice day. Your mum sounds very thoughtful
will the post grad course be funded and will u get paid throughout it? if so, i would so do it haha, i love studying.
I give small baby clothes to charity, i like the idea of some other baby whose parents can't afford much to have nice clothes. Most of my baby clothes were gifts from my baby shower!
well done on the 5 pound loss , i don't blame u for stopping early and i need carbs when i am on too!!

vrogers- oh my gosh, congratulations! i am excited and nervous for you. You must be feeling such a mix of emotions. The great thing is that L sleeps well, so at least you can feel rested and sleep ok!
how does your dh feel?
glad u brought up the depression and can take something for it.
it is a small age gap, but in a way will be lovely, they will be close in age and really close. I know a few folk with kids 1 year apart and kids always seem like best friends and really close.
anyway like Lit said, we are all here for you and will support you in any way you need!

afm- goodness Isa is going through a weird sleep phase, he keeps crawling, waking up and getting really distressed and crying. so i bring him to bed, but he is so active! kicking and moving about that it is too uncomfy!Last night he was up from about 3-4ish, i ende dup making a bottle, which he drank and then finally he drifted off and fell asleep. i moved him to the cot.
This morning i had to be in uni super early for a meeting, so i felt like once i got back to sleep my alarm went off. I left, isa was still asleep and so was dh.

anyway in uni and just quickly logged in. caffeine is my friend today!
hope u all have a good day x

Congrats V! You will be OK. I had a small age gap with my older 2 and I was no way as stressed as I a now with a bigger gap! It all slot into place. I was still rocking my eldest to sleep but never had an issue! Congratulations!

Violet is nearly waking. Oh gosh that child is into EVERYTHING. She has a cold atm so is a bit sad (worse at night!)

My new twin niece and nephew are GORGEOUS!

Hope you are all well xx

Literati- all of you ladies posts made me cry! I'm so glad to have this board, it got smaller after we had our babies but it's a good supportive tight knit group.
I'm actually going to try that, or napping while in the giant recliner with her like I did when she was a newborn. It's definitely harder dealing with first tri plus baby!
How are you feeling, any better today?

Ally- thank you!! It definitely does help that L is a good sleeper, I can't imagine how much more tired I would be. I just need to learn to go to bed earlier because dh and I use that couple hours after L goes to bed for ourselves and we always end up staying up too late.
Dh is handling it MUCH better than me, I think he's seen how crappy I've been handling it and he's trying to be strong/positive. He's more overwhelmed with the financial side while I'm more overwhelmed with the emotional/mental/physical.
The age gap thing is true, its like there's pros and cons to every age gap. My little brother and I are 18 months apart and fought like crazy but are now good friends.
L has done the same thing since learning how to crawl! I've read it's pretty common. I hear you on the caffeine, I hope you aren't TOO exhausted today!

Midnight- thank you so much, it's encouraging to hear from others who have done the same thing and lived!


Afm- right now the sickness is actually worse than tiredness, I don't remember feeling this sick with L or maybe just forgot. She woke up from her nap just in time for me to set her on her mat and throw up into my hands/hair.
Also forgot to mention my doctor said I could try for a VBAC if I wanted even though my cervix was an issue, and she wanted me to come back in two weeks instead of four because of the depression/emotions I brought up. I think that's about all that's new pregnancy wise.
L loves our dogs thankfully! They just aren't sure about her. She squeals and laughs at them and wants to touch them, and they just kind of sniff/lick her and back away. (They are outside dogs so she only sees them when we take her outside)
Also forgot to mention I was taking one class this semester and the teacher emailed me and said I had already taken the class, so I dropped it and thankfully have a break now. I plan on going back in Jan. and then taking summer off.

Ally - that definitely sounds like a weird sleep phase, but probably just related to his crawling and should pass soon!

VRogers - I'm glad we made you feel a bit better. Good that your DH is taking it well and being positive about it. Makes sense that you two would be worried about different things.
Friends of mine just had a 13 month gap and they said their second was a much easier transition than their first, and since the gap is so close, they feel like they've always had 2. Of course, everyone has different experiences, but hopefully yours will be really positive and manageable as well!
That's great you have a break from class now. That came at a good time, considering how exhausted you must be! I don't blame you for staying up late with your DH. I do the same thing and pay for it the next day.
I am actually still feeling really tired, and was yesterday too. Starting to feel like something is wrong with me energy-wise, or maybe it's just because I'm stressed.

Apple - sorry O is so unsettled! That is no fun.

Midnight - my Vi is into everything as well! Sorry Violet has a cold. Hope she feels better soon!

OMG I've not posted in here in like forever. I do still read though.

I just want to say a congrats to vrogers! I know you must be feeling overwhelmed and anxious but I'm a firm believer in that things happen for a reason. This baby is meant to me and I know he/she isn't planned, I am sure everything will slot into place for you.

Quick update from me;
- Jamie has one tooth
- He sleep is atrocious!
- I stopped expressing and he is now formula fed (this hasnt made a jot of difference to his sleep)
- He can sit for long periods and roll both ways but he is nowhere near crawling
- The hole in his heart is now so small, the Dr's have zero ongoing concerns
- Most of the time he is happy but the last couple of days he has been miserable and sin and it's really got to me

Hope everyone is well. I have a lot going on in my personal life right now which means I struggle to get on here so much. I still write in my journal but that's about it. I will try and make more effort to come to this thread. It's lovely reading about all the babies

midnight- glad isa isn't the only one going through funny sleep stuff.

vrogers- i know i love this little group. Your husband sounds very supportive, and i am so glad for that. Together you will both get through this, exciting but stressful time. how are you feeling today? i never had sickness in pregnancy, but ginger might help?
i was totally exhausted yesterday, i went to bed at 8pm, just lay there, and dozed on and off. that is good about the class, and summer off sounds ideal!

pomp- i thought of u often and wondered where u were! i will check your journal out. nice to hear from u and hope u can get on more often.
Sorry about Jamies bad sleep, u are not alone, im having a hard time just now. so happy though the hole in heart has gotten so small! amazing! what a relief.

afm- i was soooo tired yesterday, had a sore head all day and went to bed super early. Isa was beter last night, the first few times he woke i got him back to sleep by just shusshing him. then later in the night i bought him into bed as my head was still sore and i just needed to sleep. he sleep soundly then.
tonight im going out with a couple of friends to a charity fundraiser- really looking forward. dh is gonna put isa to bed, which is totally fine as Isa settles with him really happily now, its very cute.
im feeling a bit run down, not eating healthy and not exercising, need to sort it.
Isa crawling everywhere now, its so adorable.
thats it for now, hope everyone is well x
