Hi Ladies, How are you all doing? Abigail hit the 4 month mark on Friday and I can't believe how fast the time has gone!! She's been super clingy and grumpy for the past week so I'm wondering if teeth are coming? She's just over 3 months adjusted age though so I don't know...either way, I hope she gets happy again soon!
Okay ladies, tell me about rolling over. MyLinda still hates her tummy to pieces, and will probably be 16 with no clue how to roll over. (Clear exaggerating!) She did, however, roll over back-to-front something like two weeks ago. That was SO exciting! Since then she fakes us out all the time, rolling to her side, but no unaided rolls. That is probably her big sister's fault though, b/c my seven year old just cannot seem to help herself and 'helps' the baby even though I have asked her not to. lol
Sitting - no clue when they're supposed to, but little My wants desperately to do just that. She's happiest in the upright position, and even can hold in place herself for a little bit. (Learned that on accident, and scared me about half to death!)
Anyway, I feel a little bad about not being up on all of the "when" this time around - I was religious about knowing what was 'supposed' to happen at every moment with Becka, it seemed. This time I just want an extra nap when I can catch one, and I'd love my house to quit looking like a pink tornado has swept through. Ha! Also, I'm still holding the baby way too much and wouldn't have it any other way. We still sleep together, and she's still nursing like a champ. No sign yet that she needs cereal. Tomorrow is shots but I am looking forward to seeing how big and long she is. I've just put her into size 3 diapers. Still a bit too big for her, but she's got such rolls on her leg and thighs that 2's looked like they'd be painful soon, so I didn't want to get that far.
Enough rambling yet? Have I left anything out? Hmmm.... lol
can I ask you guys something? Karlee is almost 4 months old and I have had my period now every month since week 6 ( I formula Feed). I have had brown spotting for 4 days, and today it stopped. I had some cramping, but more like a tugging feeling the first of those 3 days and now no pain and no real AF. Any idea what this could be? Figured other August mommies were at the same post pardum range and could offer some insight.
Lolpants - Congratulations On a side note, I'm a fellow Cardiffian - small world!
Chimchims - Greg's a bit younger than MyLinda but even though he loves laying on both his stomach and back he hasn't attempted rolling over once. I try giving him the gist by gently rolling him myself and making a game out of it by singing the 'There was 1 in the bed and the little one said roll over' song but he's just not bothered! Suppose I'll just have to wait til he's ready. Hope MyLinda wasnt too upset by her shots
Momofone - I'm in pretty much the same boat as you, been FF since Greg was about a month old and got my period not long after. My period this month is a few days late, I did get emotional and hormonal yesterday and the tugging feeling you described but still no sign of AF! I don't think there's any chance I could be pregnant again as me and OH have only DTD a handful of times and used protection each time. Maybe it's just our bodies adjusting to life after birth?
I think our bodies are just trying to re-regulate. I'm ebf but ovulated about 8 weeks pp and am on my second cycle since delivery. Af is due again this weekend. We weren't going to go on bc because of dh's fertility issues but decided last night that I need to finish school first so I have an appt for another mirena iud on 12/18. 18 months til I finish schooland we can start ttc again...
I have another question for you all though...Abigail has her hands in her mouth 24/7 these days and they are getting really raw. I don't want to put lotion on her hands for her to ingest but I want to do something....are you guys experiencing this? Are you doing anything for it?
