I've just been reading back over this thread and I really miss it! I found the pregnancy support great on this forum but the post natal support really isn't as good? I've been having a fairly rough time, post natally speaking
I'm loving being a Mummy, little man is more amazing than I ever thought possible!
But finding it very hard work, especially the 'growth spurts' and 'fussy phases'!
It's taken a huge physical toll on me too, which I'm slowly recovering from.
Sorry to hear you found it hard too, how are you doing? x
I'm doing well. It is hard with the ups and downs. I just keep telling myself it's all temporary. My LO has started waking up at night again. I think she's teething and just wants the comfort, but it's very tiring.
Her birthday is coming up, so I'm looking forward to that.
That's amazing, I can't believe it's been a year already! Yep, I'm sure the sleep deprivation doesn't help, I'm always shattered these days. Definitely good to remember that stages do pass, but that's not always easy at 3am is it? x
I miss it as well!! though I do like having Facebook. It is hard, especially when you are tired, the only thing that could help would be sleeping, I know at one point I just couldnt move because I was so tired. But my OH helped.
It has seemed to get easier, even though she is still waking up... It is hard... but it does seem worth it. Hang in there!!!!!
Long time no posts, hows everyone doing? DH and I got a bit careless this month and forgot to calculate dates after a few glasses of wine but I've started bleeding today (4 days early) so I guess we 'got away with it'. It got us to talking though, and actually we were both a bit disappointed that we didn't have a happy accident. We haven't gone as far as to say we'll start actively trying but we'll see. We don't want to only have one child, but DH is going back to uni in September 2014 for 6 years so we'd actually be better to go for it now as my blood pressure wouldn't take waiting 8 years between babies very well, and we think that's too big a gap anyway. But I'm not even back at work yet and my job is actually looking at risk, so now's not really great on paper either.
It's true most of us fell off B&B once we settled into mommyhood, especially if things are going well. I've been fortunate that Paige was an easy infant that learned to sleep through the night early on and has had few "bad moments." (I don't know if I'll get that lucky this time!) I'm also fortunate that I don't require a lot of sleep so I've never been exhausted. Although, as easy as it's been, it hasn't been easy and can only image how those of you that have had difficult experiences have coped. In my opinion, no one's advice or home remedies work, only make me irritated! So with that, I will be better about visiting this forum and be a good listener. I'm sorry I dropped off when some of you needed the support.
