Chellett Rainsford 10-27, all so true!
I freaked out that I could feel everything, I thought I wasn't suppose to be able to feel it, they asked if it was painful or if I could just feel it, I freaked out and said I didn't know 😂 they just gave me more drugs 😂
And your just left to be naked all night and most of the next day 🙈
Also getting home and finding it near impossible to get out of bed. Actually missing that hospital bed with the button that lifts your body to help you sit up!
After surgery you don't have any undies on. Trying to hold that surfboard pad between your legs, hold your stomach and shuffle to the toilet while trying not to pass out will forever be etched into my memory of now laughable moments.
25 for sure. I had to yell out help because my baby was screaming, they weren't answering my help button and I couldn't get my baby out of the crib.The mum next to me ended up getting up and getting my baby out for me.
So many of these are spot on!
I've had 2 c-sections. 1 emergency, the other planned.
Wow. That was pretty scary.Lucky for me I got to experience both and from my experience l would choose a c section. With my first born, l went into labor at 35 weeks. I was told she was breech so was given the option to try and deliver naturally but because she was prem they suggested c section. I was wheeled into theatre on a Saturday arvo and the atmosphere was awesome. They had the music on and the Doctor was talking about his morning of golf with everyone. I was relaxed and despite my little girl only being 4lb 7oz and her having stay in hospital for 3 weeks, my recovery was fantastic.My second born little girl was also born at 35 weeks but l gave birth naturally. Nothing about it was enjoyable. I got poked and prodded for about 10 hours then had to be cut and l had 3rd degree tear (she was only 4lb 13oz). I went through labor with no gas but had to use it while being stitched up. It took them forever to stitch me up (2 people because the first one couldn't do it)and l was sore for weeks. My recovery was terrible. But l now have 2 very healthy happy daughters (10 & 13)..
The medication can make you feel sick. After my middle son was born. I just finished having a shower. I felt "normal" again. Only to unexpectedly projectile vomit over my clean clothes and freshly made bed. Lucky I wasn't holding my son. 😂😂😂
Having to sit in a chair in the shower while the nurses clean you...lifting everything up and out of the way as they go 😳 so embarrassing
My husband recently got a vasectomy. There was no waiting time for us (Townsville). We had to have a consultation with the DR first $120 and then the $525 for the procedure. We got roughly $150 back from medicare.
Check out dr marie stopes ( cant remember exact spelling) they have clinics all over australia did my hubby we booked in when suited us and it hurt a little but all went well
My ex got it done. Was all through a private doctor so was $700 and got about $150 back through medicare. He had no bruising at all and was fine after a week max.
A true legend in my lifetime, so many good memories of your wonderful achievements both on and off the field. An inspiration to so many. of our young rugby players as well. I have only spoken to you once, and I called you "Pinetree" when I did, as that is how I think of you, Keep fighting the good fight.
Thinking of you all at this time. For me you will always be the greatest rugby player of all time and the quintessential kiwi bloke Sir Colin.
I was lucky enough to met the Legend (Pine Tree) Colin Meads back in 1984. The great man was Guest speaker at our 100 year Anniversary. When he spoke you could have heard a pin drop. There's not a man more respected in NZ Rugby than Sir Colin. All the best big fella.
I had five children so I wasn't cooking seperate meals for everyone according to what they felt like, I may be the cleaner, washer, taxi, but I am sure not a restaurant!
I cook nice food, had choice on the plate . So they could pick and choose what they ate on plate but that's all, otherwise there was more food at the next meal time to choose from. It worked , they all grew up big, strong , healthy and my meal times were easy and still are.
Nope we have 7 days in a week. 5 meals are cooked with something in each meal one will like or others will hate. They also have their "safe" favourite meal once a week.
My children aren't going hungry - they have options and safe ones at that.
My husband and I love any kind of food, but our daughter is much more limited in what she eats. We always ask her to try what we are eating, but often she doesn't like it enough to eat more than a mouthful or two. So we'll cook her something different. Food should be a fight and a negative experience for a child, nor should they go hungry simply because they don't like the food. We've never fought, and our daughter eats a wide range of fruit and a decent number of different vegetables, some meat along with the usuals, bread, pasta and Weetbix. She'll get there eventually with other stuff.
Are these the same Imans that think the world is flat, that women in tight jeans cause earthquakes, that the sun revolves around the earth, and that its a womans fault if they get raped cause a man cant control his sexual urges?
Every time I hear the word "progress" and "progressive", it gives me the willies. I'm still waiting to see a "progressive" achievement that makes anything better than it was.
I think it's already functioning (inside hidden). It's coming out, cause they are ready to legalise the matter. Specially in London. Billions (£) are coming in which is looking good for govt financial institutions, so kept quiet for long time. Many thing will appear soon. Islamic and leftist lawyers will back them.
When I read the harpers article I thought this must be some kind of supposition but no I find this was the actual transcript - fair play to them!
I never will understand how a member of the 1% would want to get even more wealthy by hurting other humans. We need to treat these white collar criminals the same or worse than the 99% er' s when we do wrong. Our justice system is really screwed.
He's a sociopath . That is all. However, let the man work. He's a douchebag, but he makes a few really great things happen. If he has to go to jail, do it where he can still contribute to humanity.
Tzvia Ben Rahamim yes its true!!!when my babies get 3 months we used to let them cry in the night and 3 nights after they understand that they wont have eat!and then we can sleep every night.in your country its not like that???
Maybe I'm More french than I thought, my 8yo is still yet to throw a tantrum in public. The rest I call crap though I feel these children don't get much of a childhood not much affection and understanding from their parents.
I do not believe French parenting is the be all and end. I've had a child in France and one in Australia. Sometimes I get annoyed seeing articles like these with people writing with no actually experience and just going off studies. Even before having a baby a lot of French women already have the idea they wont Breastfeed as is not a social norm. My French doctor told me to never let my baby fall asleep on the boob and sleep train her from birth. I believe this has caused my daughter a lot of trauma which my son never had to face. The children in France are expected to act like adults from a very young age and don't seem to be able to be children and just have fun. Socially they might be well behaved but at what cost to the child's happiness.
I've always done the night shift hubby works early I'm a light sleeper anyway the baby moves I here it so I'm always awake so no point both of us awake
I'd rather a well rested partner who is able to help in the morning/day/evening because they're not exhausted from being up in the night.
My husband helps of a night.. He does the feed before he goes to bed. Then I do the rest he is up early for work. Even tho he isn't feeding he still wakes up and stays up till Bub has gone back to sleep ( sometimes Bub will only settle with him) In the last 6 days he has missed on feed during the night.
I was told " you have your hands full" at the grocery shop the other day when I had my three daughters with me 10,7,4 . They were walking quietly beside me . 7yo with one hand on the trolley , 10yo holding 4yo's hand .
So true!!i received so many "but why " as we already had a boy and girl. Was incredibly shocked by people's opinions and theory's and although I myself was in a state of shock was easily offended! Our third was the best thing, still duoruses nevtovthis day of people's arrogance
Oh yes! I heard all of these. But my worst one was "but you all ready have one of each" (older girl and boy)! Yes I do, but I wanted three children! Grrr. Some people!
Tania Karian Fede be careful what you wish for! I wished and my wish was granted twice!lol! I can also thank genetics, my Aunties are twins, i was warned by my obstetrician after i had my first set if twins that i was highly probable that if i was to fall pregnant again i wld hve twins. Well 9 yrs later we met again and she laughed and said "i warned you". This time she suggested that after the birth of the twins i shld look into either hubby or i hving a fix. Otherwise if i hve another unplanned pregnancy most likely will hve twins again! I definitely got myself sorted after they were born!
I feel lucky and blessed so many women my age are trying to have a family and hving difficulty falling pregnant. I believe the angels sent them to me, little miracles they were. I had 5 little miracles! I still get clucky! Lol!
Absolutely not true for me. I was like you Tania Karian Fedei wished my first pregnancy was twins. Then 12mnths later i was pregnant to twins! It felt like triplets! My daughter was 18mnths old when the twins came along.
2nd lot of twins was i say a miracle. Defied science. I have endometriosis, i had lesions on my ovaries. I was going for power walks, lost 6 kilos! Feeling great and all. Went out for my 40th Birthday at the Casino for dinner! Then 7weeks later found out i was pregnant. Turning 40 did for me, was quite a surprise! I will leave it up to yr imagination ! Lol!
I call bull dust.. I covered at least 80% of this.. plus I'm a twin as is my husband, and my younger siblings.. and other multiples throughout our lineage... boom... 2 single babies!
Interesting as this made me feel quite anxious. I had to stop listening to it about 1.30 into it. It didn't make me feel relaxed at all. 😳
This worked all the time for our newborn...haven't tried it in a while but might need to give it another go James Fulford at least to help with the settling and relaxation part!
I listened to this in the last few weeks of my last pregnancy, it really helped to get me to sleep. I also use it now when bubs is flipping out, it really helps to calm her.
Ten years of trying for a 2nd only to have an ovary removed and be told my chanes of conceiving, even with IVF at age 39 were very low. Six months later I fell pregnant naturally and had a healthy baby 😀
My first was a surprise and she was born in 2010 so now she is 7 years old and I was trying after a year of having her and I was struggling to conceive so I seeked help once I did that I fell pregnant im now 14 weeks and due in Febuary 14th so I had a big age gap but we are all exited 😌
Had a neonatal loss in July 2008, 34/35 weeks gestation. Started trying 4 months after. Did not conceive until October 2010. Some despairing times in between, was on the verge of our first fertility appointment, when discovered we were pregnant. Had my DD by c section July 2011 - just 3 days after what would have been her brother's third birthday. Almost 2 years later, decided to try for a third, didn't expect an easy road, and fell pregnant pretty much by accident. DS born October 2014.
Surprised spectra didn't make the cut - should be number 1!I owned a medela freestyle double pump (before spectra) and it is meant to be the better one to the swing (which made this list). The spectra is by far more superior than the medela!!!!
I'm another spectra lover! I tried heaps of pumps including Avent and Medela swing and Symphony and ended up with a spectra S2 which was the best by far!!!
I'm also shocked they have left out the spectra. I have the dew which is the cheapest spectra out and it's heaps better than the medela swing I use everytime we are in hospital.
