The vacuum...a couple of pages back, ds1 HATES it, crawls into any spaces that are away or under or far away.

I just ordered 4 books from Amazon about vax and the decisions surrounding, and natural health. I would really love to find a natural/homeopathic/holistic pediatrician. Any advice on where to look??? I checked on the hollistic website, but there were not any in the area.

Ds1 is super sick, I am thinking fifths disease or measles. Lots of SA thanks Soap for the info, and fluids and resting. The one good thing is that 2 kids had 2 naps today

Birth control, none here, can't get up the nerve to bite down.

Final thought...health insurance for self employed parents for a baby with loads of health problems at birth SUX: I am going to have to pay high rates on COBRA until it runs out then join the health risk pool for Texas. Any words of widom?

I'm not sure how to find a homeopath/holistic doc. The only one in the directory in my general area is a Vet. I'm sure kids can be classified as animals, but I doubt they'd buy that.

nope, I'm on the minipill too. Was on the patch before DS, loved it, sad it's coming up with problems. Don't want to do anything more permanant because I presume I'm going to want to get pregnant again within the next year.

my favorite boynton book? no idea. Oh, and I almost forgot my other favorite board book author: Rosemary Wells. She's the one who writes the Max books, anyone know her? love, love, love. Eric Carle is great too, but I don't have any of his books in cardboard (only paper, so they'll have to wait a few years).

I am feeling very proud of myself today because I finally got off my butt and cut up 4 CPF for my mom to serge elastic into, traced my favorite wrap (BSWW) and made 3 pocket fitted diapers out of my stack of receiving blankets (flannel and fleece), and made several doublers out of the scraps. Hopefully I'll be able to put off doing diaper laundry to every three days now, which is great.

so many new people recently. welcome!

Thank you so much for all being so supportive. I am BRCA 1 positive, which is a gene linked to ovarian and breast cancer. My grandma died at 40 from ovarian cancer and we have many other cases of breast cancer in my extended family. Because of all of this I get screened closely. I had my first MRI of my breasts and there was a small finding a few months before I got pregnant. MRI are very sensitive and pick non-malignant things, so most likely I am fine. But, it is better safe than sorry. So....to get an MRI you have to have not been lactacting for 2-3 months. MRI are the best way to monitor breasts in younger women ( I am 28). I am scheduled to have the MRI in the beginning of April and am hopeful that I can relactate after we find out everything is fine. Everyone on this MDC has been very supportive and offerred great suggestions. But now that he is on formula I feel like a bit of an outcast. Some people post things like....all the nasty things in formula....and such. We all know breast is SO MUCH BETTER, but some women have no option but to offer some formula. Also when another women asked for some help with formula, I responded and my post and the entire link was given a warning and pulled off...quite upsetting.
Anyway my purpose with this post was to thank all of you for being so sensitive and caring and welcoming.
I have a question: How many of your babies are eating some solids. My baby still gags when I try to put things in his mouth. We have tried self-feeding as well but he doesn't really have any interest. He is 8 months today.
Also...big news yesterday Charlie pulled himself up to standing. He is so happy, mimicing our sounds, understanding the milk sign...and just wonderful.
Isn't motherhood amazing!

We're out troutfishing today. Dh gave me his blackberry to look up something for him. Now I don't want to give it back. They make it way to easy to get hooked on the internet these days.
post #77 of 755
We gave up on solids. She was just not interested and shaking her head no everytime she saw the spoon. I couldn't feed her but only my mom and dh. Well, that's no fun. So she's stil ebf.

Hey there! I don't have much time (do I ever??), but I wanted to let you all know what was going on and reply to a couple of things.

First - aunt flo??? WHO IS THAT?!?! I haven't had a period in 5 years (on March 27). I still can't believe it! I just keep getting knocked up!

Books - she likes anything she can eat. We do love Sandra Boynton books...but that is mostly me! One of my favorites though is Time for Bed by Mem Fox. It is so sweet.

Weaning - Oh mama, that is just so sad for you. I am sorry that you've been given issues with others about it. Such a heart wrenching decision, I am sure.

Tanya - :guh

Sex after c-section - yeah, it hurt. Tanya gave us some great stuff...i can't remember the name of it and can't go get it to see what it was. but, it is AWESOME

Ok...so, dh got a call yesterday from the company in Indiana and assuming he accepts the offer (which he'll be getting numbers on Monday), they want him to start April 2nd. So, this means that I have 3 weeks to MOVE! Oh my gosh. I think we'll just get an apartment for 3 months or so, and look for a house in the mean time. WOW! This is going so FAST!

Dd is into everything! she is a paper magnet, she'll find paper wherever it is and eat it. She crawls everywhere, pulls herself up and loves to eat cheerios. Today she is the same age that Emma was when she died. It's a hard day. I will be watching her like a hawk all day. Speaking of....I better run!
