I know what you mean hun. I have recently moved here too, and I dont know anyone either.. luckily mam lives 10 mins away, and mother in law if need her.
We hoping to find out sex at the next scan on 9th Nov... hoping for a girl as my dd is really wanting a sister, but i'll be happy either way.
Im sure you will get to know people soon hun.. i keep telling myself that too ha ha.

i haven't really put a lot of effort in to meeting new people. im going to look into the mums & tot groups round here, i just get really embarrassed walking into places on my own!!
i found out with my 2nd what we were having & it was so nice to know & prepare but i wasn't convinced untill he was a boy till he came out & i could see for myself!!!

this is our 1st child, and we found out it's a girl and decided to call her megan
Can i ask a question..i'm getting really bad lower stomach pains and when i lie down it hurts so much when i move it makes me cry and it also hurts the top of my legs..is this normal? sorry for moaning on but i am getting worried
Oct 31, 2007 11:21AM
Megan is a lovely name, my friends little girl is megan, well 2 of them actually so unfortunately i cant have it - ours is an ellie so will see when we find out what this one is in 5 weeks time.
Mm not sure, i am not as far on as you are so i cant really advise, i am sure its just possibly the weight of your bump & nothing to worry about but if you are then i would get some advise from your doc or midwife just to be safe.

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
