I didn't realise people posted in more than one board and I spammed the whole forum introducing myself.  I have stayed strong in the dork every since.

It was so long ago, under another user name.  I *think* I started a thread and asked a TTC question.

Hi,

I'm 16.5 weeks pregnant and had a colposcopy and pap smear at 11.5 weeks.

The reason for these tests was that I was diagnosed with CIN3 (severe precancerous cells on my cervix)in January last year. In March last year I had a LLETZ (large loop excision of the transformation zone) and have been monitored by a gynaecological oncologist 6 monthly.

My tests have come up clear so far (yay) and I don't have to have another pap smear for 12 months.

To the PP who will be having a colposcopy while pregnant, please don't stress. It's not fun, but it doen't hurt.

One of my cousins was diagnosed with the same thing at the same time as me. Instead of having surgery, she got pregnant and was carefully monitored. She has just had a healthy baby at full term and will have the surgery shortly.

These conditions are very slow in progressing and can be managed during pregnancy.

Sorry for the long post.

Cinnabubble.


Obviously I became less polite.

I had a dose of siwoti syndrome which prompted to me stop lurking.  A pp had asked something about why God wasn't answering her prayers for a life partner, and I thought she had received really bad answers so far...   ph34r.gif

"Mia,

This question was enough to make me become a member so I could reply...First, I really do think it's okay to ask God for things for ourselves (I mean, even Jesus did that)!

But I do also sometimes think he gives an unequivocal "no" - I've certainly experienced that, in circumstances where you would think he would have every reason to want to say yes. And I know enough fulfilled monastics to know that God has different plans for different people; not everyone's meant for married life.

I also wonder what it is you think it means to be a woman - your comment about having skills and being independent not seeming female really concerned me. I'd be concerned at any model of femininity that implied dependence or being unskilled - that's not even the picture I get out of Proverbs 31!

What I wonder is, whether perhaps living with others in another way might be helpful to you? Have you thought about a shared community house of some sort?"

I stumbled across EB in my search for more info about cloth nappies so my first question was about MCNs.

My baby will be turning 5 this year. I can't believe how fast that time has gone.

I have a 10 week old who is difficult to settle during the day and early
evening, but (thankfully) sleeps a bit better at night. He's been diagnosed with
silent reflux and colic too.
We've tried wrapping him or not wrapping, gripe
water and infants friend, elevating his cot mattress slightly at the head,
leaving soft music on while he sleeps and giving him a dummy - he won't take
it.
Does anyone have any other ideas to try to help him sleep? And help me
stay sane?? I would love to have some more happy time with him when we're not
both overtired and grumpy.



he is much better now, took a while and 2 sleep school visits though.

My first topic/post was titled "8 Years on Implanon - Finally it is out!"... Reading back it was a bit w*n*ery, back in 2009.... 2 kids later and perceptions have definitely changed.

My son has been asking a few questions about babies and I think I had better be prepared to explain it to him soon as he is obviously thinking about it.

Can anyone recommend any suitable books?


He's since had the talk and it all went well!

Mine was a post outing myself as a I'm-not-creepy-I-promise stalker.

I was (still am) pretty technologically incompetent, and when I first joined I had no idea how to find popular threads. So, I used to visit the profiles of members who tended to post in interesting/contentious threads, find their posts, then read the thread myself - all the while not realising that my username was appearing as a visitor on their profile...

I was reading a thread on stalkers and, to my horror, saw myself mentioned in relation to one of the aforementioned members. A few people jumped in saying "Yeah, that's a bit off what cardamom's doing, wonder if you know her IRL or something? Creepy." The member in question sent me a (very kind and friendly) PM, and eventually I was goaded into posting, rather than lurking, and 'fessed up in the thread.

I still cringe when I think of it!  blush.gif
