Re: Stat test help

I did well. I scored high enough to get a uni place. So I'm officially a uni student.

Stat test help

So I'm sitting the stat test on Saturday and I'm freaking out. Has anyone else done it? How hard was it? I bought the practice test but can't manage to get 10 minutes of peace from the kids.

Re: Swelly belly

My surgeon said that given my level of fitness before the surgery it's up to me now to decide what's right. I can do abs in another month. But, given that I had chronic pain for decades it could take my body up to a year to fully recover. :shock: I keep telling myself mind over matter. That's what's...

Swelly belly

So I think everyone on here knows I'm addicted to exercise and having those 10 weeks off post op was a killer for me. Yes I know I'm sad lol. So my mantra at the gym is "Go hard or go home" but my god it's been tough. Of course my fitness and strength took a huge hit. But I'm struggling with my swel...

Re: Parenting with one arm

When I broke my wrist I was in a cast for 3 months. It's hard but it's funny how you adapt I used my feet for some things. I'm lucky my toes are long like fingers :smt043

But you will need help so if someone offers accept it happily.

Hysterectomy... Sorry its long

Well its been 8 weeks since my hysterectomy and bladder repair. I have to say, I wish I had done it sooner. I can pee like a woman who's never had kids. :shock: I will never have another horrible period again, and I will never need another painful pap smear again. I went in very nervous, it's amazin...

Re: Not sure if it's an intolerance

Hello my dd2 was allergic to the protein in cows milk. I breastfed her til she was 3 and had finally outgrown her allergy. While I was feeding her I was advised by my paediatrician to continue having dairy in my diet as this would help her build up her tolerance. She was also allergic to nuts, and w...

Re: Breastfeeding after feeding tube

DS2 was only on one for 2 weeks but the midwives told me that another baby had been on one for months. They gave them a dummy it helped getting them sucking. Then they put breastmilk on the dummy. And finally they covered the mum's nipple in breastmilk and that helped. Can be a slow process good luck.

Re: Absent staring episodes

When I had the EEG the results were normal. It was only after I had both an MRI and CT scan that the diagnosis was made. In my case I had scarring on my frontal lobe caused by convulsions I had as a child.

This is the form of epilepsy that I have. Before I have an episode I get a strange feeling of déjà vu, apparently that is quite common. It's a weird feeling maybe get her to your go for some scans and a referral to a neuro. Good luck keep us updated. I forgot to mention... I had these for years and ...

I'm going to be pain free

I can't believe it, I'm so excited. My hysterectomy is booked for the 29th. My ob asked me to get a few scans done and the results were a little scary. A few things were found, and she mentioned that I needed a hysterectomy ASAP. I must admit that the pain has been getting worse lately. DH has come ...

Re: Parents of children with challenging behaviours at schoo

I wish the teachers knew that just because he has a lisp doesn't mean he is delayed.
I wish the teachers knew that he doesn't understand to do the working out in his book, because in his head its crystal clear.
I wish the teachers knew that he remembers EVERYTHING.

Re: Need encouragement to prioritise exercise

I need to exercise, it helps me to keep up with the kids. Regular exercise will increase your energy levels. I get up everyday at 5.30 and go to the gym, I find getting it out of the way before everyone gets up and the day starts means I have no excuses. As the day goes on you get busy and you find ...

PCS Diagnosis

So after everything going on "down there", my gyno suggested a pelvic u/s. Turns out I have Pelvic Congestion Syndrome. He said that it looks bad, and that he's worried my bladder might be infected. I also found out that when I had my last pap test 4 weeks ago that endometriosis was found on my cerv...
