Can you chart even when you are on the pill? I would like to get back in the practice of charting and taking my temp etc, but not sure if the pill skews everything. I'm going off bc after this month. TTC this fall, yipee!
After a 40 min car ride I think she's asleep! Fell asleep in the car and then woke up coming in, but she layed down with no fuss. She was just like the energizer bunny tonight. She goes to sleep really well for dh, but when mommy is home it's play time! We've never made her cry it out, but sometimes we do have to put her down and she'll cry a few mins and then go right to sleep. She's quiet now and I hope it stays that way, fingers crossed! Thanks
Ughhh, feeling terrible right now. Listening to 16mo dd fuss it out for a bit. I never really let her cry, but she is so tired I don't know what else to do!
She has napped only 20 min all day (usually naps a few hrs). I already got her up once, gave her a snack and tried reading and rocking, but she won't stand for it. She's running aroung and getting frustrated with everything since she's so overtired.
Does anyone else ever let them cry for a bit? Going to...
I'm joining in with all of you. We are planning to start ttc August/sept which will give us kids about 2 1/2 years apart. But I feel like I'm ready now, only problem is I'm in a wedding in August and the skirt is already too tight, so I think we should wait. I also think a summer baby would be nice since the last one was right at xmas.
Getting excited for those months when we'll be wondering "are we?" It also makes sex a little more exciting!!!
Thank you all for the support and ideas. Sometimes my mind gets going and I get over worried about these things. I think I will just keep mentioning it too her, that we are planning on making other arrangements once her new babe gets here.
It's strange, when I brought it up and said I didn't want her to have to look after dd when she was home with the new baby she said "oh, I was counting on that as some special aunt/niece time" what?? Shouldn't that be special...
I'm a part time SAHM to my dd who is 17mo. I also watch my nephew who is 19 mo old, 2 days a week. Currently my SIL and I trade babysitting so we can both work part time and not use daycare.
The problem that is arising is SIL is preg again, due Dec. I'm hoping to get pregnant the end of this summer with #2. I'm just not sure if I can continue this babysitting arrangement once more kids are here. I don't need her to watch my dd nearly as much as I watch her son....
I found some info on mothering.com under the frequently asked Q & A section. I think under the question "Trying to concieve at 44" has a lot of nutritonal info, I found it really helpfull. Look under experts, then Sarah J Buckley, under previous questions asked. We plan to TTC #2 starting August.
Thank You! It feels good knowing I'm not the only one out there. I like your ideas and will try them. I usually am trying to get something done while they play and catch things just in the act or after. I need to be a bit more dilligent and talk to her. She can understand more than she can tell me.
Izzy defintly is territorial. Like your dd, she's fine when she's not home. It's just when he gets a toy, she suddenly wants it. I've been floored by seeing her act...
This past week my dd has been very aggressive to her cousin (18 mo) who I babysit, and there have also been ALOT of tantrums. I don't know what has changed?! She is constantly hitting my nephew on the head, or two hand pushing him etc. Also, she gets frustrated extremely easily and has a fit.
I did some research in Dr. Sears discipline book, but I really couldn't find an answer on how to address this problem in someone her age (almost 17 mo). I do my best to...
Thanks for the info. I'm defintley wanting to improve my overall health and have more energy, weight loss would be a great side effect. I need to make fruits and veggies an all the time thing and get away from the junk!!! I have a 16 mo old who I need to set a good example for. Glad to here about the oil/lemmon juice, that's my favorite dressing. thanks!
