Nightweaning: how does that work?? I'm, hum, curious

I read somewhere that you needed to stay on meds for ppd a year after the symptoms disappeared... So for me, I'm thinking I'll stay on them for another year, just in case.

Camping: used to be, before kids :

I asked about the camping because we just bought a cheap trailer and I want to go camp in Queen's neck of the woods...and you guys could meet us there! And anyone else of course! But you don't have to cross any international borders. MaybeGracie, you're in Ottawa right?

And I just recently read that about ppd meds as well, so I think I will just continue until the fall regardless of how I'm feeling. I don't want to risk a relapse. I guess I should really talk to my doctor:

Oh and way to go Tor!! Is Arlo the last one left not walking??

Morning all. You were all chatty yesterday. DH and I have been together for 12 years in October (wow that seems like a long time) and married 7 years in August.

I still have hives and I still haven't seen the doctor about them, they do seem to be getting a bit better though, I'll wait till Monday I think and then decide if I should see the doctor or not (I hate visiting the doctor).

Desmond woke up really early today at 9:30, which was odd, since he didn't go to bed that early last night. He is sitting on my lap watching starfall letters right now, which works for both of us.

Welcome to walking, Tor !!!

Ion's little legs are getting closer together when he walks making him look taller and even more like a two foot adult.

Hey you dudes!
I'm getting ready to leave tomorrow for Missouri- to meet my 4lb 8 oz nepehw! I'm excited, and a little apprehensive about flying with Eva alone. Should be fine, but all kinds of fun happens in airports.

Sounds like Evangeline! She only had 4, (two bottom middle, and two top eye teeth- she looked like a vampire) then she got one of her top middle, and recently she got the other top middle, and 2 more on the bottom! Three at once, ooor girl- no wonder she was miserable. So that makes 8 total.

Marriage sure is something else, isn't it?
Yes, I have a crazy emotional cycle- AND on ovulation day I have no milk! Seriously, eva nurses but doesn't swallow, I don't get a let down at all. My cycle goes from 36 days to 45 days---more often over 40 days long. It's like, a whole fun-park of crazy!

Dh and I have been MARRIED for 7 years this summer, and together for an extra 3. Holy cow! Those of you who are less than thrilled- sometimes it's the place in time you're at too- I seem to remember a few years ago having more trouble. Tabrizia- you guys have been together a while too!

Hope you're feeling better, hanno. Funny, I kept feeling my last cycle, but it didn't come, didn't come. Then I got together with one of my girlfriends and that day it came. Can't help but see a connection to female hormones - guess I need to get out more.
awww...that's sad! but on the upside- yes, girlfriends are good.

teeth-Arlo has 6, 3 on top and 3 on the bottom. He still isn't walking, but is climbing on everything and is really starting to talk and communicate. It's really cute.
I am in the process of nightweaning (shhhh, don't tell the rest of the commune!) I can't take being up every 2 hours anymore. Now he's going 3-4 hours, which is much better.

Trent and I also celebrated 5 years this year! Although we aren't officially married

hanno, I hope your feeling better. I've been feeling a bit weird too, but I was weaning of my meds, and now I've decided maybe that was a bad idea. And I do feel like af is just around the corner, but still hasn't made an appearance. I got my period six months pp after Finn, so I don't know what's going on here!

And kris, maybe you and your dh need a date? I know T and I do. It's so hard to connect when the kids take everything out of you, yk? Some days I think we barely even notice each other. Plus, we hardly have any sex, so that connection is also missing. But I just can't make myself do it, yk?

doudat, are you guys campers??:

A
awww, sorry your house isn't working out.
well, honestly, I don't blame anyone for not getting down and dirty, because likely I wouldn't be doin' it either if I had a less lusty husband, but I do believe it has maintained a connection between us during this crazy time. I think it definately helps our relationship, and I think we'd be mostly passing flat-mates without it.

have a great trip!!! how fun! i love little adventures with the kids, especially if it's only with one at a time! have fun seeing the little guy! did he hit 5 lbs?
i'm definately not like you--i'm sure dh would think sex would make us connected, but not me. i think i need to be connected to want it. but i'm glad it works for you.

finn'smama--sorry about the house!!

Oh, I definately agree- I would much rather have the connected feeling, and would be much more in the mood if I felt that way- but I think as an aftereffect I do feel more connected...it does take me some effort to remotely feel like it...I think the worst part is it takes energy! you know, if sex was as easy as it seems to be for guys, I'd be all over it.
funny, talking about this on an eve when I won't be getting any for 10 days!

Unfortunately I don't know what they are from, I am pretty sure they are not from anything I've eaten though. I am just hoping they go away soon, since I really don't want to see the doctor about them.

AF started today, which was a bit surprising actually since I wasn't expecting it till Sunday or Monday. I need to find somewhere to buy about 2 more extra large mama pads for night time, I like my Home Made Mama ones I got from a co-op, but I bought a couple too few, thinking I won't need that many. Oh well, to late to worry about it this month now.

This weekend should be nice DH is going to take Desmond out for a couple of hours so I can have some alone time for Mother's Day, it will be nice. He is really good about giving me alone time when I need it actually, which I really do appreciate.

Desmond has been really clingy still, I am hoping once all his teeth come in he will be a bit less of a grump. We tried putting him down to bed at 9:30 today since that is when he got up, but he was having none of it. We will probably try to put him down again in a few minutes. While I would love to make his bedtime earlier, having to be in bed with him when he goes to bed makes me less open to making his bedtime too early yet. Hopefully he'll be willing to sleep alone when we get him his own full sized bed. At least for the first 3 hours or so of the night.

You know the energy it takes to feel like having sex is the thing that stops DH and I from having a lot more then we do. Some nights even when I am semi in the mood, it just feels like so much of an effort to move the baby, kick the dog out of the bedroom, do the deed before the dog barks and wakes up the baby, or the baby wakes up just because he feels like it. Last time we had sex it took me 3 days to get up the energy to deal with effort. Which is really too bad because my sex drive is actually back at this point in time, but the effort that has to be put in to do anything kills my mood 90% of the time.

I was just wondering how your hives were. poor mama. that must be pretty miserable.

You just made me remember I have to sign my mil's mother's day card!

Funny, Evangeline sure has been clingy and whiney too. She was nursing very frequently today- and still is being very picky when eating table foods. I wonder what's up. She has a diaper rash, and runny poop...sorry! So you think it's more teeth too? I wonder if I should have a feel.

I'm pissed off at my dh tonight- he's so unhelpful and not sympathetic- I was packing my carry-on bag which was too small and he's all 'you had all day' and jerky. Sometimes I want to slug him. Do I help him when he's in a fuzzle? You bet! At least a 'is there anything I can do?' would be nice. : I did drive all the way to Toronto (2 hrs) today and back with the kids to pick up my passport by myself...and then packing and cleaning the house...
Anyway...I should go upstairs. Our batteries are low b/c our battery charger is broken...so I should save the power.

Well I think I've met my posting quota tonight! I'll try to check in from the big u.s. of a, but I might be busy! goodnight everyone!

eta- also, I just wanted to share with some sympathetic ears, I can't stop thinking about how much I'm going to miss Axel- I feel like I'm going to be gone forever- and he'll be different, or ruined from his mean grandma (she's not that bad, she just says things I would never say). Oh! dear! my poor boy, without his mommy...I know, he'll be fine, and so will I, but I just feel really emotional about it, and really don't want to leave him...I'm going to miss being with his cute little voice, and his sweet curls, and his crazy antics.... sob!

Nope...Micah's not walking either. Before he got sick he was taking steps (5-6 instigated and 1-2 uninstigated), but ever since he got the pukies, he has really regressed. He has not taken any uninstigated steps, and if we really prompt him, he will only take one, *maybe* two. I have decided to stop egging him on. He will walk when he is ready. I just worry about him gaining back the muscle tone he lost while he was so sick. He has gained back over half of the weight he lost. He was 18.5 before he got sick, got down to at least 16.13 (that was 2 days before he stoped throwing up), and is currently 17.13. So, a lb. so far and another half to go.

I am really sad that our ddc seems to be dwindling. I know that I don't always post a lot, but I always enjoyed coming home from work and checking in to see how everyone is doing. Do we need to move back to Life with a Babe? I just started the post here because I thought we were supposed to move. I know there is a thread that is/was floundering over there too. I miss everyone!!

I'm still here! Just stressed because of the stupid condo-selling situation and everything seems so up-in-the-air.

Abba takes about 5-6 steps right now.

Have a great trip Queen!!

We went to the pediatrician this week and Romi weighs 23lbs. She really isn't as chubby as she once was. She's growing and not gaining so much. She doesn't eat as much either, she's grown picky. And she nurses badly too. And she still sleeps horribly But she's getting cuter and cuter, I can't stop saying it

mmm, apart from that, not much new on my end.

Well, Troy had tubes put in today. Poor baby! I didn't realize how little he was hearing until I see how much he's responding to today! Now Im kicking myself for not just doing in two months ago when my doc first wanted to! I was trying to avoid it if we could.

The nothing to eat or drink after midnight was torture, he still nurses a lot so from one thirty until four thirty he cried and I walked and rocked and cried, he didn't understand why he coudlnt nurse. I never want to go through that again. We each got two hours sleep last night. After the surger, he drained both breasts then we went to waffle house and he ate eggs, grits, toast, bacon, waffles and hashbrowns! Then he crashed on the way home!

He isn't walking yet either, but he has some increased tone in his lower body that isn't helping matters. Plus the fluid on the ears probally didn't help either. Poor little guy.

I do not envy you being in the process of selling. I have thought about selling my condo (vascilating between moving closer to work so Micah and I don't have to sleep at my parents 5 days a week and moving to another town), but just the thought of putting it up for sale is daunting.

Oh, wow! Poor Troy! Don't kick yourself too hard. You just wanted to make sure you were doing what was right for him! You wouldn't have wanted to put him through the whole process if he didn't really need it. It sounds like he did well though! That is a big appetite!

ETA: And, I would have done the same
