well ladies, I have my second period in 3 weeks!!!!!!!!!!: : : It totally sucks! And pretty strong as well. And troubles with let down again, so it's totally related..... man, why after 19 days? WHY? I really hope it's not gonna stay that way.
My DH leaving tomorrow early morning for 4 days, and my mom threw her back out so I have one more person to take care off! And the irony - we paid her chiro for 3 times a week for the whole 4 weeks! : I really hope he can fix her tomorrow. I guess permanent damage on your spine is permanent..... She's in so much pain.

And DS2 will NOT sleep. Teething like crazy.....

Sabbath, I worried about the decreased feedings whe dd1 was sick at 6 weeks old. She was actually hospitalized then. Anyway, when you think about it we eat less when we're feeling bad, so I guess they would as well.

I'm doing well baby visits for now, too, to get to know our ped (we've only lived here a year). My dc just don't get sick enough to go enough to build a rapport. I still miss our old ped :

If I was on my first child, I'd have been staying away from the chicken pox, too. But now, I'd love them to catch it, even the baby. I'm curious if your sister's child was recently vaxed for CP?

Sorry you are having such a rough time right now, Pav.

I think I had the worst.day.ever. today. : So awful I don't even want to talk about it just yet.

Hi,

I'm new to the boards / thread so I hope you don't mind me jumping in here

From earlier in the thread - 4 random things about us (not that it's that hard as no one knows me yet!)

1. I grew up in California and moved to New Zealand in 2001 to be with my DH, whom I met on the Internet.

2. Because of my (unofficial) dual nationality, I feel like I will never truly "fit in" anywhere again

3. My baby girl has a port-wine birthmark on her neck, right over her jugular. The midwife referred us to a specialist but I don't really want to go.

4. I learned how to knit when I was pregnant and I was convinced it was a "nesting" thing. However I'm still incredibly addicted to it even 3.5 months post-partum!

My dh says "penis is no laughing matter". I secretly think he's just happy I have "penis" on the brain.

And, welcome, Margo! My dd has a big stork bite on the back of her head instead of on the back of the neck. Guess the stork bit the wrong place.

Yay - I love Toronto (although I don't think I could live in the city). I lived in Mississauga for a couple of years when I was a kid and still have friends and relatives in and around Miss. and TO. I have only been in Ontario for 4 or 5 years - I mostly grew up in Halifax. I am loving being so close to 3 major cities, but we don't take advantage of it enough. I know lots of people who went to Queen's - I wanted to go there for my education degree. My DH's family is in Kingston now, so we are there a lot.

thanks! It was nice to have a laugh after such a crapy morning. Contunuing from last night I guess.

MY Dh left at 4am this morning and before he left he announced that our dog shit all over the carpet in the basement. And he does NOT poop on one spot. He likes to poop in a circle and on several spots. So I was removing nice stinky crap at 4 am!! And cleaning the carpet. Gagging all that time : Now I am seriously considering getting rid of our dog : I REALLY need to disscuss this with someone. Our lives would be so much easier right now if we did not have a dog. We are SUCH BAD owners. Our dog has NO life. Plus we are moving to WA in January and there is very good chance we won't be able to find a house that takes dogs. We would find a house in a second without him Plus he needs to survive another 5 hour plane ride and then who know - he's gonna be stuck in the house for the rest of his life again. He's very difficult dog - he's been abused in past and he attacks people (not as much anymore, but he can't be trusted - so it's just so much easier to leave him home so we don't have to deal with it outside of our house). Plus he's pitt bull mix. No one will ever take him. SO I am up since 4 am today cleaning poop and thinking about what to do with our dog.
I remember how we used to judge people for neglecting their dogs, but now I've learned my lesson. We have no feelisng for him anymore and we are very bad example to our children on how to treat dogs. (we do NOT abuse him, but he's just left alone, all day, nobody wants to have anything to do with him). He's eating himself alive. Having skin issues, digestive issues, even though he's getting the best food possible.
Also we'll be travelling at least 5-8 weeks EVERY single year..... I really don't know what to do about him.
I used to be such an animal lover, but not any more. I am a vet nurse for god sake.... My children are my life and I do admit he does not fit in this life any more. I know, we are horrible horrible people.

No, you are not horrible. I felt the same way when my first was born. I was a big animal lover. We had a cat and two dogs. They were my babies. After the real baby came, they were demoted to dogs. I couldn't deal with poop or puking. I had enough with cleaning the baby's. Then one of our dogs bit a friend's child, so off she went. The other dog we kept, but she didn't like me anymore, only dh. Not that she was abused, just not the center of attention anymore and she was jealous. The cat was mean to the kids, so she had to go too. Life just changes after children come along. It doesn't make us bad, that's just how it is. Our Lab died last year. She was old and had hip dysplasia really bad. The girls want another dog, but I know I can't deal with it now, so I won't do it. I know that with four kids, one of which is a small baby, I have no time and patience to train a dog. Maybe when they are older, but not now!

Pick away lady. My poor DD is eventually going to rebel against my constant picking of her so I'm trying to get it all in now before she becomes aware.

The toddler of course has swung in the opposite direction. She won't let me pick any part of her, but she does like to pick her nose and wipe her boogers on me

Me too. I haven't participated in any swaps so far... can someone post how it all works? Either here or YG is fine... though I can't remember what I registered as so I may have to redo it.

Yikes! DD is chewing her hand *constantly* and I've been checking her gums but so far no dice. DD1 got her bottom two teeth at 6 months and then nothing more until 17 months! I was convinced we'd have to blend her food for life. She got remarkably adept at eating with her limited dental capabilities though - even tougher meats like steak and pork! So for anyone who says a baby who eats steak is too old to bf... I point them in the direction of DD1! Secretly hoping that DD2 follows suit here on the teeth...

Sorry about your AF. Maybe things are just a little wonky right now... I'm sure it will all go back to normal soon.

And sorry about your doggie troubles. That sounds like a very tough situation. You could probably call around and see if there are any no-kill shelters in your area if you can't find the dog a good new home.

Well I just got over yet another stomach flu. Vomiting and diarrhea starting Saturday night and finally feeling better as of late last night. ARGH. DH was feeling a little off, but didn't get any actual symptoms, and fortunately the baby is fine (albeit somewhat fussier than usual). The toddler had some diarrhea which she confused with the need to pass gas so I had a lot of laundry this weekend...

Anyway it's all over now thank goodness. Here's hoping for a good week. I still haven't figured out why it's always me that gets sick but I'm grateful that the kids were mostly spared .

Yin Yang: When I was younger we had a dog that sounds very similiar to yours. He was constantly eating himslef and going to the bathroom where he knew he shouldn't. After a lot of soul searching we finally gave in and found him a new home. Some of the allergies continued,but overall he was a lot healthier and happier. I feel for you because I remember how sad I was to let go of the dog who had already been through so much. I'm a huge animal lover but have also noticed a difference since DS was born. Priorities are meant to change. Take care!

I'm amazed at all of these teeth! Wow!

Tanya - Hope your day is better today!!

You too Pavlina!!

Welcome Margo!

Quag - hope you stay healthy for a while!

Maria - I saw you post a while back about your ds being awake for 4 hours during the night. You have my utmost sympathy....are you surviving okay? I'm not. More below...

I was SO GLAD to see mention of ENIS-PAY today. I really needed the laugh. I think I might be on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The lack of sleep, now combined with having to work, is killing me. My job is all brain work and not sleeping really affects my critical thinking skills!

Last night Nathan was up from 1-5 CRYING the whole time (gas we think) and my alarm goes off at 6. I am almost asleep at my desk. I was bawling hysterically and my poor dh hates me because I am *viscious* when I am this tired. Something has to change to get this kid to sleep, but I don't know what. Prior to the 4 hour awake period, he was also up nursing every 1.5 hours. I ordered the no-cry sleep solution book to get ideas. I'm almost wondering if we should do a sidecar - I noticed last night that I actually woke him up one of the times. He sleeps on my arm and it was numb and I needed to move it and he woke up. I am just at a loss and CIO is not an option, of course. This too shall pass, this too hall pass (hopefully before i lose my job....)

I thought my dog was the only one that does this! Seriously, it's like she's trying to run away from her own butt.

But now to the more serious aspects of your post. You're NOT a horrible person, you're a person with a lot of demands on you right now. I TOTALLY hear you on that. We've had dogs forever, and now is the first time I've ever considered getting rid of them, or not replacing them when they pass on. It's just too many creatures to care for. But it does sound like your dog is unhappy at the least. Once they're chewing on themselves, they need help. Where does your dog sleep? Is he able to interact with the family at all during the day? We keep our dogs in the kitchen (more than I'd like to) closed off with baby gates when they can't run the house. They're not isolated, they still interact with everyone, but they're not underfoot, they're not causing trouble, and if they poop in the middle of the night at least it's on a tile floor.

I don't have any solutions for you, but lots of s and plenty of :guhs.

I love you guys! By the way.....I have a question. When I was an infant I was pretty much allergic to everything under the sun until I was three. Do you think I should definetly hold off on even rice cereal until DS is six months?

Hey, guys. I feel so out of the loop here lately. Things are starting to settle down a little for us and we should be getting our own internet soon. So I will be around more. We are living with my aunt for a while to help us get back on our feet and maybe even save some money. We also need a bigger car. 2 Britax carseats do not fit well in a compact car, especially rear-facing.
4 things you don't know about us.
1. We are pretty sure that Mattie has Vittiligo. It's a skin pigmentation disorder where the cells destroy themselves in a way. My mom has it and is terribly upset that she gave it to Mattie. She gets all teary. It's like she coughed on her, knowing she could spread germs, the way she's acting. It's on Mattie's right forearm. It has been spreading rapidly. I think because of the sun. I hope the winter slows it down.

2. I met my dh online and knew I was going to marry him 3 weeks after we met in person.

3. I've wanted a husband and babies since I was 2. I used to say when I grew I wanted to be a mommy. I'm not sure how good I am at the wife thing, but I think I'm a great mom (I hope so, anyway, sometimes I wonder).

4. When I was 5, in Kindergarten, we were asked to draw a picture of what we wanted to be when we grew up. I drew a girl with a nurse-type hat on, holding 2 babies, with a big pile of babies all around her. I don't know what I said about that. When I got to college, I had no idea what I wanted to be and changed my major a ton of times. I never graduated. I finally decided I wanted to be a midwife. I started training to do that in 2002. It was after that I found that picture. I realized little kids are sometimes wiser than adults.

I gotta go. I can't wait to read more later.

Jessica, mama to Emma, 7, Mattie, 5.5 and Lilly, 3 and someone new this Halloween-ish.

It'll be on the YG. Swaps aren't allowed in DDCs anymore. Or they never really were, but now it's being enforced.

I went through that with DD1. It was hell. Try the sidecar - he might do better if he isn't right next to the 24-hour diner. NCSS is a good book and will have some good things to try. CIO wouldn't work anyway. And this too shall pass, but that doesn't mean it's easy now!

I would wait. Especially with a history of allergies.

I have more to say (don't I always) but DS is getting loud and I am late for a scrapbooking date. Back later!

Definitely!!! You might even need to wait longer but he will tell you if he wants solids or not. Often babies who are more likely to have allergy issues do not want anything to do with solids for quite a long time...

Anyone want a cat AND a dog?? I'd rather clean up dog poo on the carpet in the morning than to wake up to find the cat peed on my leg. In my sleep. On my bed : (thank you for plastic covers). And the dod wishes I'd carry HIM around in the sling. He follows me all over the house all day. The only pet in good favor at the moment is the betta fish.

Us, too. Dh says once a week that it's time to freecycle the cat and send the dog back to my mom. One or the other of them has done something annoying and we just have too many dependent creatures to take care of right now.

It is thought that those babies that aren't interested in solids until later (9-12 mo) have a built in allergy protection that makes them delay solids.

Shh...don't tell my 5 yo that. He's already 5 going on 40, and my 2 yo is going on 30.

Hello all
I really want to catch up and respond to everybody but I just don't have the time. I did manage to read all the posts though

I've been incredibly sick. I felt great Thursday (in fact we had an awesome day), and then Thursday evening in the space of an hour my throat got so sore that I couldn't swallow and ended up with red splotches and white spots on my tonsils. I woke up Friday with a fever, and by Friday night it was 103.5! That's the highest fever I've ever had, I think. So anyway my DH is in med school and he was with an ENT the past few weeks, so the doc sent home a ton of antibiotic samples and I started taking them Friday evening. By Saturday morning I was pretty much better, just tired. I'm all better now but still a bit weak. Phew!

Maria, it is SO hard not to play with them when they're all grinning and giggly in the middle of the night, I agree. Ezra goes back and forth; he'll have a few nights of not sleeping well, and then a few nights of sleeping great (still up every few hours to nurse, but right back to sleep with no fuss).

:guhs to you, Cori. Gas is the worst. I'm pretty sure the antibiotics I'm on are giving Ezra a ton of gas. I can just hear it inside him when he nurses, poor little dude. So that's causing him some trouble sleeping. We're loading up on probiotics to keep the yeasties away.

I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I was supposed to go to med school but that's not happening--I'm just not willing to sacrifice my role as primary caregiver to my kid(s) just to pursue that.

So I only said 3 things since DS is only 3 months, but here's my fourth:

4. I think y'all are cool, and it's really nice to read about other mamas and babies the same age as DS. But I also feel like I'm intruding since y'all are all friends already and I just came and stuck my nose in here. So at first I was thinking I would just stop posting, but my big mouth wouldn't let me do that

Youguys are scaring me. I can't keep up.

Hi to the new mamas,

Sorry to hear about vittiglio (ack I butchered that). Now your mama has to make it up to her her whole life. sorry to make a funny out of a not funny situation...but it's true. Genetically, your mom owes her one! : (jk--it is nobody's fault! genetics are a russian roulette!)

Juicy girl, TEETH??? *mental note to check amara's mouth*

I am in for the swap. Can't get to YG at the moment but please don't forget me.

Yin Yang, you must give away that poor doggy. I don't blame you one bit for what's going on but realistically neglect is a form of abuse, pleeeeaase don't take that wrong, just know that no life is better than that life and take steps to get him out of your (beautiful, already full) hair. Again, no blame whatsoever, I know I would feel the same way. Get him gone. Put up flyers. Something. You are already going through so much, you don't need more stress. Sorry to hear also that you are having to care for your mom! Egads. Sometimes when it rains it pours.

Gumby, yes totally wait as loooong as possible for solids if allergies not only run in your family but are from you.

Penis update: I think I saw one running around here over the weekend...Penis Sighted in Yoniville!!! details at eleven.
