Taking charge of your fertility

by Toni Weschler.

it's great, but don't expect a british GP to be interested in your temperature charts, they'll ignore you and go by your LMP anyway. by temp charting, soph was on time. by LMP she was 2 weeks early.
whatever. The point is, it's great not only for charting to get pregnant, but also aparently to prevent one of these:

never used it for that though, jim got himself neutered after soph's birth.

anyway, fab book.[/u]

Ouch! Just the thought is enough to act as contraception.

she was born with a huge mop of dark brown hair. the health visitor told me it'd all fall out but it didnt, it just got longer and gradually lightened. it's between her shoulder blades now!
mind you, the HV also told me she'd be constantly ill because I fed her solid food too early and also couldn't breastfeed properly; she's actually got the constitution of a flipping horse.

any opportunity to show pics of her lol!

Some health visitors don't know their arse from their elbow. Others do but aren't allowed to tell you cause its not 'NHS policy'

I couldn't breastfeed and started E on toast at 5 months - she's fighting fit too. :mrgreen:

That said alot of Mums don't try to breastfeed and don't know what an apropriate solid food for a baby is (knew a woman who tried to feed her baby peanuts, but her 5 year old told her not to :roll: ) So I guess some people need told what to do.

Yup...

She also would complain that 'they' couldn't even make tap water safe for babies to drink :pale:

She had FIVE kids, God knows how they all survived.

BTW she was nice enough, I worked with her for 4 years, she was just slow, I guess :?
