Good Idea Hayley,

I'll pop it in the first post as well so it's there for everyone to see straight up.

Hey lovelies

it is sooooooo hot today - i nearly just melted outside - i went up to the post offie with the kids and got oli an icecream - he took so long to eat it that it ended up being a milkshake LOL. Maisie only woke briefly - she is a pretty good sleeper in the pram. I must say that the double pram has been terrific for us (esp when its just me to keep track of both of them!) Maisie tends to sleep and oli tends to eat LOL.

Well it is offical i have stopped BF, i will continue to express for the next to weeks then M will be a FF bubba - it just was not happening for us - so rather than torture myself like last time i have pulled the pin (with my sanity in tack!).
Maisie is feeding like atrooper on the bottle (thank goodness!) she normally cluster feedsthrough the day at 3-3.5hr intervals then at night feeds at 9pm, 2am and 5am. so i am getting some sleep!

i said to the MCHN that she was unsettled with wind - and the MCHn said is she crying continously for 3hr? i said no she just pulling at her tummy - OMG imagine crying continously for 3hr?????? ph34r.gif

blink.gif What, is that the only definition of unsettled with wind?? Crying for 3 hours??!!! rolleyes.gif Lucky that's not the case! Have you tried Infacol Wind Drops? I have used them when I couldn't get the wind up and they work really well.

Felix feeds 3 hourly during the day and goes down about 7pm, then wakes and feeds anywhere around 1-2:30am then again around 5:30-6:00am so night time is great. Last week he went through a growth spurt and was feeding 3 hourly at night, arrgghhh! Such a shock to the system!!

We are getting the sleeping self settling thing sorted during the day, thank goodness. He was miles too hot during the day and getting way too overtired thanks to incompetent Mummy tongue.gif I am on top of it now and you don't know what you don't know! blink.gif laugh.gif

Kita, not long till you meet you man!! Hope you and Nikki aren't getting too hot!!

hey hayley - M is currently on these drops - i think that they are pretty good. From memory the MHCN was saying that after 3hr you need to seek medical advise to see if there is an underlying issue - i would hope that I'd think of that before the 3hr zone LOL

my fav MCHN advise so far this time has been after M lost 500g since birth and we were BF and EBM, and the MCHN said "so what do we do now about this weight loss".... i said you're the professional.. she said lets weigh her every day and feed her every 2hr........ obviously she was not my fav LOL ......

Hey all. Kita and Nikki, I hope you are off having babies! We still haven't had simultaneous births yet, I reckon you two should be it! biggrin.gif laugh.gif

We are doing good. Had my appointment with the psychologist. I am feeling absolutely fine now but I am glad I kept the appointment as I am still 'at risk' due to my history and personality (strong, coping, anal retentive type tongue.gif - the lady says the vast majority of her clients are like me laugh.gif ). We are not going to do anything at this stage, she will check in with me in a month to see how I am doing.

I had a dream last night, the first time DH and I DTD after baby I got pregnant again ohmy.gif blink.gif I think it was a nightmare actually... laugh.gif Eek, one old friend on FB that happened to, her kids are like, 10-11 months apart ohmy.gif

We have the midwife again today, hopefully he will be awake as he needs weighing, he was asleep last time and I didn't want to wake him.

Hope everyone is doing good smile.gif

Glad to hear you are feeling okay Hayley! Your nightmare made me laugh! I have the exact same fear.. although I have to get this one out first I guess!

41w+1 today!

Lol Hayley I couldn't imagin having bubs 11 months apart!! If that actually happened to you they would probably be born in the same year...freaky. It's good to hear everything is going well for you especially since they aren't taking any further action for at least a month. Must make you feel even better.

Nikki I keep talking about when bub is here but then stop and think I've got to get him out first laugh.gif I hope I don't make it to 42 weeks. If I have to be induced I don't get to use the birth centre and I want the bath...though saying that I think I might do anything to him out by 42 weeks!

AFM - I'm so over this heat. I sit in the air con all day (ducted) and I still feel hot. I don't think it's possible to feel cool when you have a little oven attatched to your tummy tongue.gif

Kita, if you are really interested in inducing you should go and see a homeopath. My midwife is a homeopath and has given me some cimicifuga and caulophyllum to take to induce labour.

There are 12 tiny little pills of each (like little sugar pills that dissolve under your tongue), you take one every hour alternating each type (so, one cimicifuga pill and then an hour later one caulophyllum pill) for 12 hours, and then again on the second day.

One of them softens your cervix and the other tones your uterus.

I am not going to take them until I'm at least 42 weeks because I prefer to let things go naturally but if you have the deadline of 42 then it might be a good idea.

I'd also try accupuncture if you can.. see if you can get a recommendation - maybe from someone at the birth centre? - for someone who is well known for inductions.

I only have all this info because I had my 41 week midwife appointment on Monday and obviously we talked about induction haha.

I'm happy to wait it out though (for now!).

Thanks for the ideas Nikki. My midwife suggested acupuncture too but was unsure of particular people in my area. I'm about 30-45minutes from Newcastle and have been trying to do my research on finding someone. I'll try again today otherwise I think I might ask her if she can find out for me even if I have to go into Newcastle.

I'm keen on doing it naturally as well but being aligned to the hospital they don't like letting you go over 42 weeks. I'll guess I'll find out the induction plans on wednesday after monitoring. If I make it that far.

I know what you mean Kita, it can be very pressuring being pregnant after 40 weeks in the hospital system and past 42 weeks is practically unheard of. It's a shame that birth centres do align themselves with hospital policy like that, I imagine it makes being 'over' even more stressful than it already is.

Good luck finding an accupuncturist! In the meantime maybe you can try some accupressure just with you and hubby.. there are some videos on youtube that show you the right places or try looking at these websites:

ETA: Sorry girls, for crashing the mums and bubs thread! We should probably be talking about this in the pregnancy thread!

Small world Kita, I live in Newcastle.

Things are still going well here, Estelle is a very chilled out baby. She'll be a month old tomorrow, but it only feels like I got out of hospital last week. It is soo hot here, I am sitting in the air conditioning and still sweaty, glad I've got the baby on the outside now! I have my next appointment with the mental health team on Monday. I feel awful having such an 'easy' baby and still being so anxious.

Good luck with the natural inductions Nikki and Kita, I admire your patience smile.gif
