    Thanks ladies! A1983 thank you! Lol. I'm 28 (29 in feb next year!) it's funny u say about your pic of your tests cause I have Sellotaped a pic of the 4 I ended up taking in jaxsons baby book! Lol. Sleeping 6-6 that's amazing! Fj it's so lovely to see your bfp- bet it brings back lovely memories for you! Jess I'm broody too-- have been for weeks. But we're gonna hold off till the end of next year, probably around the same time Jaxson was conceived actually, to try again. If it wasn't for having to
    Return to work for a bit, and of course the fact it would be really hard work, I'd try sooner. Amjon I'm so impressed that you're Ttc already (and a little jealous! Lol). Hope u get a bfp soon :)
    Merri jaxsons been going through a bit of a sleep regression too so I feel your pain. Somehow it's so much harder to cope with it when you've had a little taste of what it's like to sleep again!
    My sis and mum are determined that it's because he needs a wee bit food, and admittedly he is a big baby, but of course I'm holding off as it's way too soon. However I must admit I don't think we'll make it to the 6 month guideline age as he really is a hungry Horace.
    Not much news from me. I'm shattered! That's about it. Jaxsons fab though and he's changing so much every day. He's sitting pretty much unaided now (although his balance isn't 100% yet) and he's constantly trying to pull himself up if I lie him back. He's also been trying to roll bless him but he's not quite made it yet.
    Hope everyone doing well and getting some sleep! Xxx

    That's amazing progress Jaxon! Nia doesn't do much apart from really pump her arms and legs ha ha! If on her front she can hold her head up a bit-but not comfortably or happily! She swats and grabs toys though so that's progress! And obviously when holding her she supports her own head! How much does Jaxon weigh? And the other babies? Nia is 15lbs at 12 weeks!!

    Also do you think girls always grow taller than their mum's? Probably a silly question as it's genes/chance/unkown but im 5'11 and OH is 6'1...I will give Nia all the confidence in the world but knowing how I feel about my height I do hope for her she wont be any taller than me :-/

    I don't actually know :blush: not had him weighed since he was 6 weeks old - he was 11lb14oz then. I've just never bothered as he eats plenty milk and is getting bigger visibly. I am gonna get him weighed soon though just out of interest. He must be big though as his 3-6 month clothes are already quite snug. Lol. Nia sounds like she's doing brilliant and 15lbs is amazing! Xxx

    Finn weighed 13lbs 13 oz when he was 13 weeks old! lol, Glad it wasn't Friday the 13th or I would have been completely spooked.

    How long is Nia? Like Jaxson, he is in 3-6 month stuff. Getting ready to go up a size to 6 months on the footed PJs and fleeces, as his legs are long so they are getting too snug on his feet and they pull down on his shoulders.

    Nia was 55cm at birth-not sure now as they don't measure babies unless there's a reason but ill try and straighten her out tomorrow and measure her!! She's still in some 0-3 clothes, 3-6 months are teeny bit big but wont be long! Depends though-a 0-3 dress today was ridiculously small but a 0-3 baby grow fine. I think babies level off a bit after 6 months. Nia doesn't snack as much as she used to-some days up until recently she'd feed and sleep all day on me if she could! But the last two weeks she has refused a feed unless it's been about 4 hours inbetween so I've been left wondering what to do when she's crying ha ha as normally the boob is the answer! She's choosing to sleep more on her own accord in her moses in the day-she fusses and refuses food so I now know to put her into her moses where she may go to sleep straight away/look about for a few mins then sleep or cry for a bit then sleep. So that's new!

    Jaxson is 64cm now I measured him myself. Still not been to get him weighed but it's on my to do list for this week! A1983 I read a book called the baby whisperer that was quite good and explained all the different cries and body language and what they meant.. I used to always think he was hungry when he cried but actually sometimes he's just bored, over tired, or wanting a cuddle. He sometimes cries when he's getting fed up of his toys-overstimulated I think- so I have to put them away and it calms him down. Sounds like nias doing brill though!
    Jess that is spooky!!!
    Aw merri Jaxson still has days where he seems pretty congested too. Hope it clears up! I always think he has a cold coming on and start panicking. The last time he had the cold it was awful xxx

    Ahh Merri has May been congested for a long time then? :-( what could it be? Nia's had a crusty nose bless her most mornings for about 10 days but now it's a full blown cold-bought an aspirator today which im yet to use but sounds fun...ha ha along with a plug in vaporiser and baby olbas oil which I've put on a muslin-she must be fed up with the smell! Hope it clears soon-she was up every 2 hours after midnight but it's hard to not feel sorry for them despite the tiredness! On one of the wake ups she just fell asleep in my arms bless her. Think she's having a spurt too as guzzled 6oz of formula at 1am! (I'm trying not to bf until after 4am as normally she only has a feed between 4&7am so this extra feeding will be temporary, hopefully! But most importantly because my boobs will get used to filling up earlier again causing me to wake/leak and be unable to move!

    Yes I have a couple of good books and love reading about all things babu when I get the chance. Nia definitely gets over stimulated and most days it's a repetitive cycle of feed/cuddle, play, nappy, bed etc etc!

    Ohh I'll measure Nia at the next nappy change-she's currently asleep on me!

    Gale force winds expected tonight-we stocked up on so much food like we're going to be house bound for weeks ha ha! No winds yet tho..

    And ignore my signature ha ha! Obviously knows something I don't :-D

    Wow congrats BD! Fast work! I haven't dtd yet either-hmmm maybe I should now really and just put my worries aside!! I'm ebf too and no af at all so im sure it'll be fine....I also get ov pains so will know if I haven't had any that we'll be ok! But obviously ov could happen at any time as haven't a clue if or when af will start! It's funny how some women who are mostly/ebf get af and some don't....wonder why that is? If it's time between feeds then I don't feed Nia between 7pm and 5am-and I would have thought that would be long enough! Bd were you not being careful deliberately? :-D X
