    I wish I'd kept all my pg clothes too. I got rid of them ages ago. This time I will make sure I definately don't want any more before I do the big wardrobe cleanout. I can't be bothered buying anything new now, but I will be shouting myself a few extra nursing bras, I predict a very drippy leaky time ahead, lol.

    I am guessing you breast fed your other kids Yvette! It will be a challenge to breast feed two that's for sure, you will definitely need to eat right that's for sure.

    You sew too don't you? Have you ade many clothes for yourself this pg?

    Cheers Michelle

    How tired were you Vanita, breastfeeding both? Was it heaps worse than just having Rhianna by herself?

    I didn't breastfeed, very bad at it, both me and the kids, so we chose the bottle and never looked back.

    Cheers Michelle

    Yeah Michelle, I bf Lola til 18 mths, Ruth & Angus for about 9 mths. I was thinking of continuing with Angus & tandem feeding, but then I was feeling pretty sick (m/s) a lot and was getting sick of the wriggling and hair pulling, then we found out it was twins, and I decided to give myself a break!

    Will bf again with the twins. It’s always a bit tricky the first day or so, getting the latching on happening is the hard bit. I imagine it might be a bit harder still this time with smaller babies, but if Vanita can do it….

    I’m crap at sewing and my fabric & pattern for maternity tops is still sitting there after a month! (I be afraid of it…) I do actually know how to use the machine though, but the ballet school must not find out!

    The meet-up was great thanks Sarah. Got to meet lots of people and the kids all had a ball.

    Hey Sarah the meet up was really good.

    How is the repairs of the car going Vanita? Forgot to ask! Also how long did it take you to get home? Did Rhianna sleep on the way? Jemma and Jessica were exhausted, and actually so was I so I hate to think how tired you preg girls were.

    Yvette- I agree with Vanita, you will be fine with the breastfeeding cos you did a great job with one at a time so there is no reason it won't be wonderful.
    You must keep us updated with your birth situation too, I hope things become more to your liking.

    Nat- how'd you go this arvo? Hope you weren't too tired, cos I bet you had to cook tea too when you got home.

    Thursday is swimming night so we have easy tea, kids had tinned spag and Arron and I had hamburgers with the lot, so no cooking for this little black duck, thank goodness.

    I should be watching the Amazing race but got stuck on here instead, oh well it is more exciting after a few groups ar out anyway.

    See ya michelle

    Michelle - I made it to school on time to pick up Josh with Jacob sleeping nicely in the car. I should have planned my lunch a little better though - I ordered the chicken when I had chicken out for dinner grrrrrrr. I was absolutely buggered though, but no time to nap on Thursdays - ironically the day I want to most - with the kids needing lifts to sport.

    I've have stored the pg clothes I want to keep should I ever need them again. Jeff was having a fit when I was clearing them all out of the closet to restock my "normal" clothes. I think that was his way of saying maybe one more LOL!

    The repairer thinks the car maybe a write off, so just as well we have new cars ordered, just need them to get here!!! So I'll be doing a lot of driving around to get DH to work, as well as me!!! I was home after 3 ( but I stopped at the scrapbooking shOP!!!) Rianna slept the whole, way was asleep nearly as soon as we took off!!! Big kids have swimming too, we leave home at 430 for a 500 lesson, then DH had to be picked up at 6 ( got there 610) then came home, we had pizza 4 tea so no cooking here either!!!

    Have spent the day out shopping today, got the mothers day pressies, for his n mine and I bought myself a new bean bag, coz I love them when pg.Bought more clothes for the kids ](*,) I am an absolute shocker, we need a b'room to be converted into the kids wardrobes Im soo bad!!!

    HI all

    Vanita- anymore news on the car? Hope it gets sorted soon cos it must be tiring having to drive DH as well as yourself.

    I am tired and I shouldn't be, prob because I should be going to bed earlier, wouldn't you know it would be my own fault. LOL

    I have 1 week till my gastroscopy and I can't wait for it to be done. I must remember the $150 as well, I have to pay it on the day. And I realised that it was the 22nd of Feb when I saw the Professor and it turned out to be almost3 months not 1 like he said before i got seen. Grr at Professors who don't tell their secretaries who should go on the urgent list, just lucky I rang or I would still be waiting.

    Hope you all had a lovely Mother's day, I did, while after doing all the housework etc as Arron was injured in Footy on Sat (swollen knee) and was dying, as usual. He did make brekky but that was the extent of it. Oh well maybe next yr will be relaxing, although I doubt it.

    Best wishes Michelle

    They are going to write the car off, I think, but luckily DH's new car that has been on order should be here on thursday, so no more car sharing, ( phew) I had a similar Mothers day Michelle, DH bought McDonalds for B'fast, and then I cleaned the house as IL's coming for lunch, then I cooked lunch, DH had a nap whilst i cleaned up, then I took the kids to mums for dinner as DH was gone to work, yeah!! NOT

    Good luck for the gastroscopy, its about time it came around hey!!!

    Dontcha looooove our baby boys ( DH's) when they get sick , theyre dying yet if we get sick, well be ok!!!!

    Bring on tomorrow Vanita! Thank goodness the car is ready.

    And yes I think we are mostly all married to the same sooky man LOL, they just have differnt faces IYKWIM! The worst thing is it is Wednesday and he still hasn't been to the drs and it is full of fluid and very sore. He asked me can the fluid get infected and can he get into trouble with it like that, I didn't have a clue but thought you may know. He is going to the Drs tomorrow anyway.

    Well I had to go to the drs today so they could fill in a form for the gastroscopy. And I saw a nurse who I really like. I am so glad it has finally come up, I have been unwell since Oct last yr, and saw the specialist in Feb this yr. Not bad for a 4 week wait to get in mid May. typical. I So hope it find something that can be treated easily and I can start to feel good again. I also have to get my dizzy thing out and also this pain I am getting on my rib just above my tummy. The nurse laughed when I told her basically I am falling apart.

    Sorry to burden you with medical stuff, I am sure you have enough of your own medical stuff to deal with esp at work. LOL

    Anyway we got our tv unti today and my loungeroom looks so good. We are both pleased, but I have heaps of rearranging to do in the study tomorrow so I am not looking forward to that.

    Have a nice day and let us know how the new car goes.

    Best wishes Michelle

    Yes love our big babies hey!!!
    Unless he has an infection in his system, or that his knee has an open wound ,no it shouldnt get infected as it is a sterile fluid the body produces to cushion an injured area. Mine sooks heaps and never gets off his b'hind to get to the Drs ( or even get some panadol)!!!!

    DH is very excited about his new car, and wanted to go get it 1st thing in the morning, but I need to sleep for a few hours, and he has to take Rianna to Playgroup!!! So the poor darling has to wait til lunch time!!!

    If I had a patient, with your complaints I'd offer to take you out the back, and put you out of your misery LOL, no look I hope this finds out whats goin on, so you can get the apppropriate treatment.
