Lots of goings on here
Hoggle - great news. I hope it all goes well. I haven't tried anything for sickness but I feel for you, its horrible. Hope it passes soon. I remember water making me feel sick and not being able to sleep. No fun but worth it.
Thanks for the vlm reminder. I have entered myself and hubby. Now I will wait for the rejection magazine!
Sonya - glad the scan was OK.
TT - its so hard to chose stuff for your house. I struggled when we did our flat and found magazines little help as their articles were always people spending a fortune. I actually looked at places on right move for inspiration. Its real houses done up on real budgets. Might help?
Tangy - I so feel your frustration. I am v similar. I had more success following a paleo diet whilst marathon training last year. I found I was more full/satisfied on less and was surprised that I could lose weight and still have energy to train. When I followed the tradition carbs type low fat diet, I used to crash and burn on long sessions. I also find that I can't use my calories earned, for example if I supposedly burn 500 cals on a run, if I ate them, I would put on weight. I am doing a paleo diet now. 8kgs down, just over 14 to go. Long slog...
A few people have been talking about speech issues. My daughter (now 3.3) had some speech issues. At her two yr check she was in the bottom 20% for her age. We were referred to a speech therapist and had 4 child/parent sessions to help us to help her. Worth pushing for if anyone is worried. They were useful. Her speech is still behind so many her age but she is improving all the time. Its not nice to be worried about it though.
Talking of my 3 yr old, she is really cross with me at the moment. I am sure it is because of the baby. She loves him but is sometimes quite aggressive with me, pushing me (she is quite a mild mannered child mostly) and saying things like "mummy can't come" when we go anywhere or "mummy naughtey". I need to spend some one on one with her but its hard when breastfeeding (he does take a bottle but I bf during the day). I am going to try and take her for a few hours on Friday whilst the baby sleeps. Any advice gratefully received as, although expected, its upsetting.
I am 6 weeks post baby today. Gp check this morning!
