    explo, I think you missed my point entirely..(sorry to say)…I too formula fed my first baby after trying so damn hard to breastfeed and then expressing for twelve weeks ( I was so sleep deprived I was getting migraines).

  • Hi everyone, I’m just wondering how other ahem..’advanced aged’ mothers are experiencing food cravings (I don’t want to go to craving forum- no ones there). Is anyone swinging from savory to sweet things? Some days all I want is savory foods and cant stand the idea of eating sweet foods, other days I’ll crave sweet foods..When I was younger my…[Read more]

  • Hahalol dawnp, nice one and congrats!! I had the 40 yr deadline too- not sure why, just a personal thing I think. I already have 3 teenagers and my partner has a 6yr dd from previous marriage, so we weren’t trying and are actually rather shocked at how easily we conceived.

  • Hi colcat- wow, sorry about your loss last year. I’m 36 and 8 weeks pregnant (not planned), my partner is 47 so I guess we both make it into the advanced age catagory now.. (how to feel old) All the best with trying again xx

    Hi ladies, I was diagnosed with GD at 19 weeks but think I’ve had it for longer as I had symptoms of Diabetes at around 8 weeks. Its frustrating trying to keep my blood sugar level under control and looks like I’ll be on insulin in a week or so. Not looking forward to that.

    Thanks explo, I’ve had two other children since then and breastfeeding was a breeze 😀 It’s been eleven years since my last pregnancy and this one, so naturally I’m very interested in catching up on new info and advancements in anything to do with baby. All the best to you xxx

    blah, everything I found on the net still agrees breast is best, except one that suggests they are the same..Maybe the only time formula is better is if the mother is a crack head or raging alcoholic..I cant wait to breastfeed my bubba.

    Hi everyone, I was quite shocked the other day to be told by some one that formula has recently over taken breast milk in being the best and most nutritious choice of milk for baby. I said I didn’t believe it and would love to see the research papers, so am going to see what I can find online. Has anyone else heard this lately? I will still of…[Read more]
