Can't sleep! Should be sleeping!!! Managed to get Jack and Ben into bed and asleep (without Medised ) by 6.00 pm, but I didn't manage to settle until 9.00 pm and just can't nod off, so decided to just get up and be done with it. Will probably feel worse now anyhow if I do nod off for an hour or so. Have to start getting ready at midnight Going to be well knackered by tomorrow now Will catch up tomorrow night no doubt. I imagine Jack and Ben will sleep fine when we're there as they'll probably be really tired too with a short night's sleep tonight and distrubed naps through the day tomorrow.
Anyhow, seeing as I'm here now
Woppa - I've always used Pampers for Jack and Ben and they stay in them all night - Ben usually sleeps 12-14 hour nights. They are really wet in the mornings, but no leaks and no nappy rash. Maybe this is the part where shops own brand nappies fall down. Perhaps it'd be worth getting the Pampers for bedtime and shops own during the day. Otherwise, then yep, I reckon you should change Eva just before bed if she's getting a sort botty.
Oh! Can't remember anything from the other thread now Oh well.
Okay! Put the eyesore of an outfit on Eva, take her picture, keep it for about a month and then tell auntie that Eva's grown out of it, but look how gorgeous she looked in the photo. Keep photo in photo album until Eva has first boyfriend and show it to boyfriend
Sorry to jump in on this thread, but I really wasn't sure where to post this so please move it if you feel its not appropriate for here.
I had a really bad experience on Saturday at our first Parentcraft class and apart from my sister, don't know anyone to ask what we should expect from these classes other than what I have read in the books. Just wondered if someone can give me an idea as to how they are normally run as I am thinking of making a complaint and want to get my facts straight first. The Classes im attending are run by the NHS, not NCT.
Hi Karen ~ i did NHS and NCT classes, both were great.......most of the time we just sat round in a circle and teacher/midwife would go over a theme or we'd get into groups go over stuff like pain relief etc.......god i've forgotten most of it!! We did have to pretend to have a contraction while the NCT woman shook her maracas
Sorry you had such a bad experience.......please IM me if you want any help,
Well Joe hasnt got German measles phew. It is contagious so he cant start play school this week but he said it should be gone within a week. Its not dangerous to pregnant women though.
Thanks for your wishes.
FC sorry things got a bit difficult at the weekend for you. It's hard to start discussing tx with people who didn't know, alot of emotions resurface. Plus, you have just lost someone very special to you, and you are maybe a bit tired and under the weather. NO wonder things got too much! Hope that the hospital appt goes OK & your liver is not playing up. Take care of yourslef & get more rest!!! I have gone back to having a sleep EVERY lunchtime when Toby sleeps, if I can. It's the only way I can cope with still having broken nights, & still BF, etc.
KIm hopes Joe's OK in himslef (sorry haven;t caught up on other thread)? Sorry he can't start playgroup, bet you had been telling him all about what fun he would have & now he's wondering what's going on! Poor love! Hope he's better soon.
Kas, sorry you had a bad experience. At my parentcraft classes we sat round in front of a flip chart which the MW used as part of the session, and each week we had a different topic, e.g. pain relief. She would go through the basics of what to expect, what everything meant, we had the opportunity to ask questions etc. That was about it, it wasn;t really fun or social or particulalry interactive but it was informative. I also attended NCT which was very different, much more sociable, with varied and more insteresting activities to do in pairs, groups etc, on different topics. Quite different appraoches, NCT gave more opportunity to share / discuss thoughts and feelings, the NHS classes were just basic presentation of facts. In retrospect, I'm glad I did both. I am not sure who you would complain to aabout your NHS ones, are they run by your MW team?
Woppa LOL, although Jayne's suggestion is a great one! I have used the "it was too small" or "he's grown out of it" on several occasions as my Grandma keeps sending wierd things mostly she has bought in the charity shop, usually they are girls things & she hasn;t realised
Oh yeah, and Pampers all night, every night, no leaks...I could write their next advert, how sad! But I AM going to try some reusable ones in the daytime, soon!
Jayne hope the journey's going well - have a lovely time!
Took Toby to sing & sign this morning, he was a bit grumpy - most unlike him, but don;t think the lady took it personally! Met a girl from my post natal group who is really nice, she seemed to have a lot of the same sort of concerns as me about how her little boy is waking up a lot and only settles with a feed, and controlled crying & stuff. had a nice chat. Much more refreshing than most of the time I seem to meet Mums whose babies are pefect (yeah right) & I come away feeling a bit depressed about the way I am handling things, also DH doesn;t understand why I am always tired, it is making things difficult between us...but he never has to get up at night, although somtimes he gets disturbed by Toby, it's not the same when you can roll over and go back to sleep, as to when you have to get out of bed & then you wake right up, don;t you!!!
Oh, sorry, look at my ramble!!!
Well better go, Toby is having a lovely nap & I have also had one, but not too tired today thankfully!
No I guess if your gallbaldder not functioning properly they will remove it. I looked into alot of stuff to do with it when I had gallbaldder problems. Having it removed means the bile just flows then, rather than being regulated by the gallbaldder. Not sure what difference it makes but I guess it will make your liver work properly again? You need the bile to digest your food. Ooh er sounding a bit technical here now
Kim hope Joe is feeling better soon and can start playgroup.
Well take Josh for his MMR today. Hoping to take him to the baby clinic (that;s a laugh he's no longer a little baby) and get him weighed etc. Can't believe how much he has grown at this rate he will be in age 2 clothes before long and he is only 15months!!
Just praying things go OK with the injection today - no doubt he will scream blue murder and will be a leech for the rest of the day and night but hey part of motherhood - means I get a cuddle anyway (ahh).
Well girls take care speak to you all again hopefully tomorrow!!
Mel - Sorry you need to have an op - don't worry about having your gall bladder out, i had mine out 2 years ago and the recovery is quite quick.
Becca - Glad to hear that Jack had a good swimming lession - i bet you are counting the days, hours and minutes until that appt, how exciting.
Well Jessica had her 8 month check yesterday, she is 17lbs 5oz - which i thought wasn't a lot for her age, i expected her to be more, she has queried her head size also, a bit small compared to the size of it when she was born so we have to go back next month to have it re-checked, no idea what a small head signifies although i am glad she hasn't a big one like Tony. She didn't have her hearing test as she is under audiology at the hospital because of her jaundice when she was born and that appt is next week, i am not concerned with her hearing though.
We were discussing food also and she said Jessica can have dairy products now - cheese, yoghurt's and whole milk in cereals and to make up food but not as a drink obviously. My question is this though, can i give her dairylee spread on some bread or is that the wrong type of cheese?
Well i am going to order her christening gown now, i cant have the one we both wanted as they only have age 6 months but never mind i like our second choice also
Mel....dont worry, Jessica weighs more then Millie and she is 10mths nearly, she is 16lb 12oz.....guess that are active babies Dairylea is fine...a friend of mine was instructed to give her daughter dairylea to help her put on weight so its fine from 6mths They love it to !! xxx
Jules...thats great news Please be carefull though, some are only after your money for the photo shoot you have to pay for, it'll cost you about £80 - £250 and then you get no work. Happened to a friend of mine some of them will just take anyone willing to pay the money, unfortulately they know what the mums are like !!Good luck though xxx
Just thought i would update you a little. Well Benjamin managed 4 steps all by himself this afternoon, he looked so sweet. Ofcourse daddy was up here on the computor, and by the time he had come downstairs Benjamin decided he didnt want to do it anymore!! I dont think it will be long now before he is doing it properly!!
