Advice about partner's sudden change of mind... feeling absolutely devastated :(

hello LW, I am so sorry you are going thro this, I agree with Maria, one thing at the time, so many things on your plate right now and the whole fertility issue is so hard and emotional. As for you drunk to much... there are so many women who hardly had any ... and their amh is low and they struggle with fertility issue but many of them have kids (!), I am sure the whole arguement got heated and your partner didn't mean to hurt you ... but I know, can imagine how painful was to hear those things...

The guilt. Oh the guilt!!

I am sorry GemH, I can't help as DD is still at home but oh I can imagine (AND GUILT, I have to say, I think it is just part of the motherhood!) and seriously not looking forward to it... It can be age, kids are really changing at 2-3 years old, many hugs to you, surely there are ladies who will give you good advice, I just hope it will get better

seriously she said this? "'There is a reason people can't have children, God didn't think they deserved them'' oh I can't believe this, how people can be so rude, insensitive and cocky and decide themselves for God! Oh Jofish many hugs I know it is hard but try just ignore this woman, something is wrong with her... (I presume she has many kids and all because she has deserved them????)

After any BLW advice please...?

I've read that after 1 year old is good thing to try to move child from the bottle (reduce to one bottle in the eve, before bed). DD hated beaker first and it was combinations of both and basically it didn't work about 1 year old but then suddenly she started to like it, but as I said BG I tried it/move from bottle only around one year old, not earlier.

Advice RE: Breast Pumps and Sterilisers

Quoted from "Bells" Medela are brilliant and have a fantastic reputation. However, if you regularly express instead of breastfeeding you won't produce as much milk. If you don't produce as much milk you won't be able to express. It doesn't matter how snazzy or well rated the breastpump is, the most important key to successfully breastfeeding a baby, is to breastfeed regularly. Especially in the first few weeks when your supply is only just being established. Even the most fantastic pumps and te...

What would you do if you were told you had just a year left to conceive?

"Unfortunately, when you’re trying to conceive, all of this goes out of the window. Instead, it’s all about your body temperature, hormonal rhythms and dates in the diary. Sending Chris a text request for yet another session in the sack is, frankly, about as romantic as it's going to get. I’m amazed how quickly the novelty of having sex all day, every day, wears off. By the fifth day I am exhausted." OH WELL, can't agree MORE (my life at the moment/inculding text messages..., find it very depres...

Advice RE: Breast Pumps and Sterilisers

"I think i'll def go for the medela swing" again, I can't stress enough how useful it was, my BF story wasn't good (of course it doesn't mean you may have any problems) but as I said DD didn't take breast at all and I cried day and night and I wasn't sure if I want to spend money etc, will it work etc.... but it did, of course it didn't replace breast but only because of it my DD had milk until age 4 months (I said it already), it is so easy to use, reviews are also very good in amazon, I do rec...

Advice RE: Breast Pumps and Sterilisers

I had this:…00863500&sr=8-1 not endorsed by FZ and it was great, I have to say only because of it I managed to breastfeed my DD until 4 months, as she wouldn't take breast at all and generally from day 0 it was a such struggle. I absolutely loved it and it is so easy to use. Def recommend. Good luck AG, so happy for you!

I lost it this morning :-(

dearest SL, massive hug to you I can only say that my little angel just over night turned into little madam and kids in this age/terrible twos know what they want and usually immediately, so many things are happening with you and not all positive, you are wonderful mother and sometimes it is just hard... there are days like these and especially with twins, I mean it is double attention etc, many hugs and best wishes and I hope it will all get easier.

Help with teething, please!

I use the same B gel but when DD is teething Calpol is must for us. It all happens from nowhere and I always think how little ones do suffer with the whole thing, and for us - sleepless nights as minium so yes gel and calpol from me. it just comes and goes but these things do help. "The nurse said to give her a little calpol but I can't give this every day for the next god knows how long, can I?! as I understoon, if I understood you right, every four hours, this is what I do, most of the times i...

anyone had first time ivf sucess after trying for 10yrs plus ?

We tried for less than a year.................... but in my case all docs were saying that I never would ever get pregnant naturally, and I felt so low, just like you do ... and I am happy to say it did happen. I was told that my both tubes are blocked and no chance it can happen naturally... and it did.... so this things do happen. I know it is hard to believe but it is very possible, so much luck to you and many hugs, I do know how hard it is but there is hope!

How long should we ttc naturally before a second try at ivf?

I am in exactly the same dilemma.......................... even DD was natural, I don't know, I don't have much hope for this to happen again, I decided 6-8 months, but only because of our personal situation, we live abroad and going to build a house, so I guess it just can be too much for DH and our finances... very interesting thread, will read it, good luck to you! and many hugs, I know how hard it is... I do know.

Cow's milk -v- Growing up milk and bottle to beaker questions!

I moved DD to normal milk when she was 13 months (after some reading etc), she absolutely loved it and I never had any problems with it but.... at first she hated beaker, absolutely didn't like it and we had to continue with bottles (but the same time I stopped to sterilize, what a relief it was...................) but then... in a month or so she learned obviously that beaker is a good thing and it is all okay since! good luck! (sorry about bad nights, DD was an excelent sleeper until 14 months...
