Nope - no days off here for her - my mother made me go to school everyday when I had them saying that "you have to learn to live with them because the world will not stop because you have a period!". But saying that, I do think I will be more leanient then my mother was to me!

sounds like you have your hands full at times... but kids are wonderful. I read your post about having the hot water bottle on your tummy.. is this for pain/cramps. The reason I say this is because I have had painful cramps all of my life.. used to take Ponstan, then I was prescribed anti inflammatories for other matters and found they were wonderful for the cramps. But with all of the bad news associated with anti-inflammatories now days(increased risk of heart attack, stroke etc) I looked for an alternative as my doc said I cannot exercise for 3 days after taking the anti-inflammatories. I searched high and low and did not have much success until I came across a natural remedy called Cramp Bark. You can buy it at the health food shop in a capsule, it also has added magnesium which is also for cramps. I could not believe that it did the job.

Oh you poor thing - I can symphasise with you on the cramps - I get them sooo bad a week before my period is due so I do find that a hot water bottle on my stomach does ease the pain a little. Try it - you have nothing else to lose!!!!!!! I should book in an appointment with my doctor to find out exactly why. When I last saw him - I made a passing remark about back pain, pelvic pain and cramps and, as my appointment time was up, he said it sounded like endometriosos and that I should make another apopintment to discuss this with him and take it further - but alas I have not done that and have continued to live with the pain. Mental note to self - MAKE AN APPOINTMENT!!!!!!!!

I used to suffer with terrible cramps, backache & major bleeding as well but I had an "Implanon" put in my arm (the matchstick thingy) and all I have had for the last 3 yrs is a small amout of cramping every three or 4 months when I would have been due. So after 3 yrs of freedom, it is now time to replace it. It was due to be changed in Jan and I havent' got around to it and now everything is back in full force so to quote Sassygirl "note to self - make an appointment" :) I wish that I could get it for my 11 yr old daughter when she starts and then she wouldn't have to worry about TTOM for the next 3 years, and concentrate on high school next yr.

Thanks Kate - she was spoilt rotten. I have been converted to EBAY and did some searching around for items on there. She is a total fan of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen (understands the weight issue and doesn't think that they are great for that!). I got her collector dolls, clothes, cd's, dvd's, an autographed photo of them, a purse, a doona cover, a watch, ps1 games - all for under $150 dollars (I started during the middle of last year). Was very impressed with my haul. She had two of her friends sleep over last Saturday night (what a nightmare - I got no sleep whatsoever cause they talked and laughed all night!!!).

It gets harder as they get older believe me. When they are younger you can get them anything - as they get older and get to know brands it gets more expensive (start saving now Kate!!!!!).

woo hooo "you go girl" - my bestie used to work in a surf shop and was given incentives in clothing - she has got nearly every Roxy made thing out - doesn't help that she is super skinny with long blond hair - she looks soo good. My daughter thinks that she is a trendy mummy.
