    Thought I'd bung all my questions in one post, rather than posting several threads!! :dohh:
    Questions about O:

    *O is now 4 months and still quite sicky, he was never officially diagnosed with reflux as it never really bothered him that much, but he has always puked a lot after feeds. This can be up to one or two hours post feed, especially if on his front or back, but can be when sitting up quietly too. When is it likely to stop? Should I go and see someone or will it just stop eventually? :shrug:

    *He's not rolling over yet (either way) is there anything I can do to help him. I thought maybe if he was naked it might be easier as he can't grip etc with socks on, or does it really not matter and he'll get there when he gets there? :shrug:

    Now me:

    *When did your hair stop falling out? It's driving me MAD, been going about 2 months now and seriously my hair is everywhere :wacko:

    *I've still got painful knees, finger joints, and ankles...is this normal? Anyone else got it? I assumed it was from weight still to lose, carrying lo around and being unfit, which is fine...but I wasn't sure if there was any underlying reason/thing I could do...or just tell me to shurrup! :blush:

    I'm sure there are more, but I just thought I'd put this out there and see if anyone had any helpful advice or just to say "me too!" Lol

    Thanks in advance all :kiss:

    My LO is about the same age - she's not rolling over yet either. I've tried pulling her by her hand to show her what it's like to go from back to front, but it hasn't made any difference. She did roll once from front to back at 10 weeks old but it hasn't happened since - I think she finds it harder to manouver now she's a bit bigger and has more weight to move.

    I'm just going to let her get on with it now.

    Hello :wave:

    My LO is sicky like this too, it only started the past couple of weeks :shrug: So I will be interested to know when it stops! I'm getting fed up with all the washing she's providing me with haha!

    Coralie has rolled a couple of times front to back, and she'll roll from her back to her side (generally to watch me or get a better view of the TV) but that's it. I didn't really do much to help her, just spent loads of time on the floor with her while she was on her tummy. I'd lay on my tummy too so we were face to face iykwim and when she eventually started rolling (last sunday!) I congratulated her and clapped and made a big thing of it every time.

    My hair is still falling out :( It's horrible!!! I find my hair in EVERYTHING now. Gross :sick:

    I didn't really suffer with sore joints or anything in pregnancy, so I don't really suffer now either so don't know on that one sorry! Although I do feel generally unfit now as I still have loads of pregnancy weight to lose. Even going up the stairs feels like a struggle somedays. I so need to lose weight :wacko:

    hi ,
    cant help with baba bits as my baba only 5weeks but with your joints this might help .... i had real bad spd crutches the works and went on to be told i had hyper-extension of the ligiments around the joints .... meaning once the ligiments are stretched it hurts like hell and takes up to 12months to heal ... im having physio so maybe ask your doctor for a referral hope it gets better xx

    Good to know, we're not the only ones hey! I know its nothing to worry about but its nice to know if there's anything I can do, or to just wait it out!

    Ah, sorry to hear she's just started with the sickyness! That's a pain! I was hoping it'd get better lol!

    I do lie with O when he's on his play mat, but now he's discovered his fingers he just shoves them in his mouth, starts sucking and that's it! lol!

    Thanks hun! My problem is I've got fine hair anyway, have visions of going bald at the rate my hairloss is going! My body already feels like a 90 year old don't need my hair to follow lol! As for your back, that's the one thing I've managed to help by doing stomach exercises. Just doing sit ups and back stretches, ease your back pain loads. Basically your stomach muscles stretch so much in pregnancy that they can't support your back like they would normally, however you need them more and more with picking up lo etc, so your back takes the strain and consequently feels like it's breaking!

    That's interesting actually, because I had such bad spd I was on crutches too by the end of my pregnancy...so maybe that's why my joints are bad now. My hips seem ok, its just the rest of my joints, which didn't play up before (but maybe over-compensated) are now killing me! :dohh:

    My hair is worse now than it has ever been, just got a chunk out washing it this morning! My joints are rubbish - but they were quite crap before pregnancy, that relaxin actually helped me feel better jointwise (sorry you gals with SPD). Im assumin it is a combi of hormones and carting a baby round in hideously unhealthy positions (on my knees a lot more too).

    Re rolling, my LO is 5 months next week and she has only rolled fron to back a few times (recently) and never back to front - she gets on her side then her arm gets in the way but I'm sure she'll do it when ready.

    Oh bugger about the hair loss...*damn*! Oh well, may have to resign myself to going bald then! lol

    Again great to hear that 4 months isn't too late then for being particularly disinterested in rolling lol! He's having a great time right now on his mat, but no effort on the rolling!

    hello,
    tummy time is always good for development, but other than that I don't think there's much you can do to help him roll. He'll get it with time!

    Hair - I have a lot of hair to start with, and MAN did I lose so much of it!! It stopped falling out when LO was 6 months and I stopped breastfeeding. The interesting thing is, it grows back...so now I have "baby hair" sprouting out all over, and it makes my hair look crazy in the front and super puffy and frizzy all over! It's the weirdest thing.

    Ava-Mae isn't rolling either. She ofter brings her knees right up and rocks from side to side and I think oooo is this it and.....nada.

    Re the hair falling out, I posted a thread about this the other day, asking if anyone had a spare wig and comparing myself to ending up like a barbie who was the victim of a 5 year old with a pair of scissors on a makeover rampage! Apparently when you are pregnant you grow more hair so the hair loss is all this extra hair coming out. Seriously it is driving me mental, I have to unblock the shower everytime as I end up with water round my ankles and Ava-Mae always has handfuls of my hair!!

    Re the sickiness, Ava-Mae is still sicking up. It can be way after a feed and is sometimes clear. I put it down to her having learnt to suck/chew/lick her hands and is producing extra saliva and just bringing it back up. She does have reflux though.

    Lol...there's me thinking that all babies were rolling by 4 months and O was lagging! funnily enough he's doing quite well with the sitting too, but no rolling is too dull/much effort for him! x

    At least I'm probably doing all I can then :thumbup: Now that you've mentioned baby hair, I've had a look in the mirror and have little tufty bits at the front of my hairline...great, now going to be tufty too! Ah well, looks like it might be going for a while then!

    Exactly that!! Rocks around then gives up again! Ah, must have missed your thread, I usually do a search before posting to see if I can find my answer, but totally missed that one! :dohh: Ah...I get it now so at least its extra hair that's falling out then...am tempted to just get it all cut off, it's SO annoying isn't it with the plughole/baby hands scenarios! Plus it's forever tickling the back of my arm, one of those little things that really grates!

    Thanks again :thumbup: xx

    Yep, my hair is still falling out and everytime I haul myself off the sofa or out of bed my knees and ankles pop and creak :shock:

    Myka has rolled front to back a couple of times (well, more of a topple actually)...she definitely seems to get much more traction barefoot
