    Thanks for your thoughts ladies, it's enough to bring tears to my eyes! Finn's reflux, feeding and sleeping are actually getting worse so we're at QEII which is a family centre for babies and toddlers. Am hoping they can help a bit because he's not putting any weight on and every feed is a struggle which ends with both oYep, see you both thenf us in tears - his from pain and mine because I feel so useless seeing him like that and not being able to do anything. Will let you know how we go xx

    Oh Lise it's good you're getting help. I hope you can sort things out. Maybe use this as an opportunity to rest yourself and don't be hard on yourself, please! You're learning as you go and you will get there

    Lise, sorry to hear you are doing it so tough. It's easy to tell you not to feel useless, but harder to stand by and feel you can't help your baby. You're doing the best you can and you will learn whatever is going on with his little system and be an expert in no time. Soon no one will know your baby like you do so hang in there, they're tricky buggers. Look after yourself and let us know how you get on.xo

    Hey there Smiffy! I love hearing about your life with miss c and the chooks. What a world away from that horrible place you were in before. I should have vegies and chooks too. We.ve got everything set up and an enormous yard. I love the idea of a fairy garden, how cute is that?

    We have settled into a routine with our therapy and travel. we skype witht he therapist weekly and do the big trip to the mainland every fortnight. Now that Jazz is bigger and I don't have to stop for extra feeds, it only takes about 4-5 hours one way. I'm trying to get to a stage where I don't have to stay in Adelaide overnight and can just do the therapy and travel all in the one day. It's a big day but better that than two big days and a night away every fortnight.

    We are off to Melbourne next month for more tests and to dot the i's and cross the t's to make sure jazz is a candidate for the Coclear implants. I know, I know, I thought it was a done deal too but apparently, deaf as a post does not automatically guarantee approval. So, back for more interviews with the head of the implant team and surgeon and hopefully a big fat tick in the box for implants and a date in November when the health fund kicks in. I'm sure it's just standard procedure but it's a bit annoying.

    Feel free to add your stats to mine, but I am just going to give you an update on Jasmine's and look forward to comparing yours for a bit of fun.

    Age: 9 and a half months,
    Height: 68 cm
    Weight: 6.5 kilos
    Eye colour: blue
    Hair colour: brown

    Hope the weather smiles on you all today. My stinky weather blew the nappies off the line yesterday!

    Have a great day

    Hiya Loverlies!

    Oh Lise hunny, big to you. Sounds like you're in a good place though!

    Hey Farmer Smithy! Look forward to getting on a real 'puter so I can check out your pics!

    Sorry to hear this cycle didn't work Kelly, that next time is the one!

    Murph: , toes and all my bits that Jazzy J qualifies!

    AFU: little Hunka Chunka is doing well. Had a scan today as the doc was a little worried about the size of his big boof head so we had a brain scan done and all is good. The teething monster is still terrorizing us, hopefully they'll cut soon. We're a big tough nut that's sitting up now, tries to crawl & can stand up when holding on to furniture. He is just itching to get up & run so I have a feeling that will come early too!

    Love the stats Murph! Here's ours:

    Age: 5 months
    Weight: 8.77kg
    Height: 73cm
    Eyes: Blue
    Hair: Golden

    Yep as I said a big hunka chunka

    Hope you girls enjoy the rest of your hump day!

    Just popping in to say what a very excited Mumma I am... JD is commando-crawling! Started this morning! He also gets up on his hands & knees, rocks forward & back then launches & face-plants the floor so I'm thinking it won't be long for full-blown crawling!

    Oh and we've recently developed ticklish spots which make for endless hours of giggles & entertainment! Love it!

    Hi Girls.Well after quite some time,i have found both a little time and a little energy to get online and make contact.As you may know already and for those that dont,i have become the proud mummy of a precious baby girl named Ellie Juliette.She has stolen my heart in a big way..i never knew i could be so in love with another child but oh my..its overwhelming.
    She is a very good baby.She sleeps alot and when she is awake she loves to stare at the bright colours on the tv.A real old soul,she is.
    I still cant believe she is here though after 6.5 years of trying to create her. I cant wait to be pregnant again.I already am clucky for another but DH said only if it "miraculously" happens naturally as finances are really tight now.Im hoping that by being pregnant,it has stimulated my body to work properly and hoping too,that it has 'cleaned' my insides out.Firstly you must do the deed though and i cringe to admit that we still havnt since before the egg collection so about 10-11 months!!!! I am still waiting for bleeding to stop and my c section scar is still painful so it could be some time yet.
    Anyhow i havnt gone through and read anyones posts as i wanted to get some advice and do a brief RE-introduction before lady muck wakes for her feed in 20 minutes.
    Im curious when everyone had their baby's first vaccinations done and how their baby went. The 8 week vacs are now being done at 6 weeks due to the whooping cough epidemic and im so unsure when to have Ellie's done.Id prefer to wait til 8 weeks but as we have a big family gathering on Fathers day with the familly and 5 small children,coming to meet our princess,i wonder if i should get them done early.Ellie will be 6 weeks on the friday before the fathers day weekend and dont know whether to stay at home,away from the cousins kids or get her vaccinated right on the 6 week mark,2 days prior to fathers day?
    Any advice would be fantastic.Im so worried she will get sick and dont know what to do.My dr says she should stay away from other children and that most people get their bubs done at 6 weeks but i just dont know.
    PLEASE help.xoxox

    Hi and welcome WB2 (you'll need to change your username now )
    Whooping cough requires sustained contact with someone infected to pass it on - 3+ hours I think. So you might feel comfortable with limited contact prior to vaccination. A lot of the time these things get passed on by adults who have not had boosters and don't really feel ill - just something to consider.
    Personally I'd prefer to put these things off as long as possible, but we all have different perspectives and attitudes toward risk.

    I love reading the stats of all the little bubs, so cute! Here's Finn's:

    Age: 7 weeks
    Weight: 5.1kg
    Height: 56cm
    Eyes: blue but I think they'll change...
    Hair: dark brown
    Milestones: smiling
    Teeth: none thank goodness!

    Well we're home from the baby centre and really I think Finn is just the same. We saw the paed again yesterday and he changed Finn's reflux medication so am waiting for that to kick in. Apparently the one he was on only works about 50% of the time whereas the one he's now on is brilliant - if it doesn't work then it's not reflux. So fingers crossed...

    Apologies yet again for the lack of persies - Finn is waking so better run

    Hi Girls

    I'm still floating around, we are back from holidays and DH is still off work until next Monday so hopefully will get some time to catch up when everything is back to normal.

    But here are our stats, they may be a little out (but close enough) as we have done them at home as Tara's next MCHN visit isn't until 12 months.

    Age: 10 1/2 months
    Weight: 9.5kg's approx
    Height: 80cm approx
    Eyes: Big Blue Eyes with long eyelashes
    Hair: Auburn
    Teeth: 6
    Milestones: Now says Yay and Ta as well as Mum and sometimes Dad. Still not crawling but wants to stand up at every opportunity - mainly on me..
