hi, i really could use some advice im doin my own head in thinking abou this..

we hadnt been trying, but had unprotected sex when i think i was ov.....af due at the weekend....

BUT, ive had symptoms for the last week- sickiness, phlegm, vivd dreams, and a bitof lightheadedness, and so yesterday afternoon i did a first response, it was neg - then this morning after a dream about bein pg i did the other test and, well, rather than a bfp it was a WFP (weak, faint P!) so i showed oh who saw it too, it was weak but def there, and even tho we weren't goin to have any more we were both over the moon!

so i been to the doc this am and he said that he would read that test as negative
then he did a pg test altho it wasnt the 1st wee of the day and after a few seconds he said deffo BFN (

we r both so disappinted now (but decided to start trying again!)

what i want advice about is, has anyone else had the same with a 1st response test? were you pg?

i guess i just want to still feel hopeful, im dreading the weekend cos of af coming

into the big bed....

Posted: 30/12/2009 at 14:56
it was a great sucess! he didnt fall out again, and slept well all night, not a peep out of him. i even got a lie in till 8am cos he was playing from when he got up at 7ish - marvellous

he went down well for his daytime nap today too and no falls, have fashioned a temporary bed guard out of a pillow for the time being

he seems so happy now, and clambers onto his bed with glee when we go up for his naps (not that he stays on it for long, he does get overexcited when the lights go out and he realises he is still free!)

aw, it was def the right thing to do so no more worries

into the big bed....

hi everyone,

tonight is sams first night in the big bed! he went to sleep easily like always and hadnt heard a peep out of him until just, but im now sitting here worried that ive done the wrong thing converting the cot to a cot bed.

how can you tell they are ready?

i only ask because he just fell out! i put the old cot bed matttress that came with it (we bought a different one) at the side so he wouldnt hurt hhimself if he fell out - when he fell i heard a thump and a little cry, ran upstairs but it hadnt even woken him up, he was asleep on the mattress on the floor.

so im wondering, is he too young to stop himself falling out or is this something they learn after a few tumbles? he is 15 months. i only changed it to a bed because he is so good at climbing, and even in a sleeping bag he is mobile and i caught him this morning trying to get his legs up on the cot rail. i panicked!


my lickle man is growing up far too quickly!

thanks

Urgent advice needed re citalopram - any experiences?

Posted: 14/12/2009 at 16:23
Hiya, I personally didnt have a good experience with citalopram, only managed 2 days it was so bad, but others on here said they had no problems at all, so you could give it a go but if you feel it isnt working stop straight away, go to your doc and ask to try something else

I found that they made me feel very mongy, detached, and in a kind of bubble. couldnt communicate or relate with my lo , just felt do awful. that was day 1! and so tired. day 2 was even worse so i stopped.

doc them put me on dothiepin, but these made me SO tired. when my hv saw a (female, and mother) gp for her case discussions the gp was astounded that my doc had given me dothiepin and called me in urgently! it was because she couoldnt imagine how a new mom coukld cope with a baby and the tiredness they caused

she put me on fluoxetine (prozac) which has been brilliant. i felt almost sicky for the first week but not tired and able to function, and soon felt lyke myself again!

so, after that long essay (sorry!) id say dont stress, just give it a go but dont be afraid to keep trying diff ones till you find what works for you, everyone is different

good luck, hope you feel better soon, try not to worry. i did exactly the same as you (googled it! WHY do we do this to ourselves!) and then came and posted on here! hehehe:lol:

going to work if you have a poorly lo (also in toddler)

Posted: 07/12/2009 at 16:40
Thanks so much for our replies, i feel much more confident about facing her at work now. And that link was great maximum+1, i had been looking on that website earlier and never found that page! Just what i needed.

My boss is over 50 now and never had children, but she has been very reasonable with me so far.

Sam is doing better, he is dosed up as prescribed with paracetamol and ibuprofen so his tempp hasnt risen, the high temp was causing the vomiting apparently. so fingers crossed for a nights sleep at last!

i wish i could be ill instead of him! he has been v happy this after noon and back to dryhumping his teddy....business as usual

thanks again, you have all really put my mind at rest today

going to work if you have a poorly lo (also in baby)

Posted: 07/12/2009 at 08:55
hi, i have not gone into work today cos had to take sam to doc this am, turnes out he's got a virus, he had a high temp and vomiting at night. he is also infectious!

so i said to my boss i wouldnt be in for the rest of the day and offered to come in next tuesday to make up as there is so much work on at the moment,

she said ok but i could tell she wasnt too happy. altho i thought to myself, what else can you do if you lo is ill (sams 14 months). if it wasnt infectious my mom and dad would have him of course but i dont want to put them at ris of catching it, and i wouldnt like to send him to a childminder (if they would tae a poorly lo) because he just wants his mom when he's sick!

So, what does everyone else do if there lo is poorly and its catching. Does everyone stay at home with them? i guess its a bit different for us tho because my mom has a weak immune system after some treatment, so she shoudnt be exposed to bugs if at all possible)

any advice would be appreciated as i may need some ideas on how to defend myself to my boss when i go back to work

thanks xXx

Feeding is a nightmare :-(

Posted: 05/12/2009 at 18:18
Hi, i remember when sam was tiny feeding was ok, but it started to get worse to the point when i sat in tears sometimes feeling like such a failure that i couldlnt feed my own baby. i was crying out wof worry for my baby not feeding, and out of overwhelming self pity at feeling like such a failure.

although it seems so long ago (but it wasnt! sams only 15 months but so much has happened since then!) i remember that sams feeding improved after we used infant gavison (prescribed by my gp) before each feed (mixed with water and administered by oral medicine syringe) . we saw an immediate improvement although it was a bit messy till got the hang of it!

also what helped sam a lot was a couple of sessions of cranial osteopathy. i was dead skeptical at first but willing to try anything. again we saw a change straight away my more relaxed not grumpy in the eveingins, comfortable lying on his back and his tummy (previously a complete no no) and fed well (no more insisting on being sat in his bouncer and coaxed into it)


sounds like you are doing a wonderful job it must be so hard with two i dont think i could have managed that! well done to you!

Touching hot radiators

Posted: 05/12/2009 at 15:42
Hi, sam is 15 months and he is the same!

maybe they are just trying to figure out what this strange sensation on their hand is: ..."what shall i call it...feels all nice, and mmmmmmm comforting...waaarrrmmmm..yes, thats sounds nice, lets call it warm!"

he has realised that sometimes its really hot and other times is warm to the touch, so he gingerly touches with one finger to see if he can put his hand on it now! sometimes he is surprised and holds his finger up for a kiss if it was too hot

ivebeen trying to teach him the word hot, so when i say 'hot' now, he checks things before touching or eating them

must be so exciting being that age and havin all these new experiences every day!

xXx
