    wow hard to believe it is already august!

    eliana got given her cousins walker on saturday so she spent all afternoon & some of this morning scooting around & of course getting into so many things that i didn't think she could reach - she is still not crawling but is loving the independence. we spent yesterday at DP's mum's place so i could make eliana a teddy bear out of a towel - ive almost got it finished, the patchwork dress is taking longer!

    hope you all had a great weekend

    hi girls
    i'm going crazy from the lack of sleep
    wolf gave me another crap night with screaming from 12 - 1 and 4 to 5:30 (then mini sleep and then awake from 6). i just don't know what to do anymore. i was hoping to have an afternoon nap with him but he just screams and screams when I try to put him in his cot. what happened to my wonderful sleeper? i can't continue living on 3-4 hours of sleep, especially not pregnant.

    sorry, no personals. am sleep deprived and grouchy

    snowy - you poor thing i hope you got some more sleep last night - i thought i would have problems with eliana when i got her to self settle a few weeks back - she did wake up a few times but i just pressed her fisher price music thing on (i have it on the repeat of one song for 20mins) & she just goes back to sleep - hopefully wolf will be out of it soon - maybe he senses there is another baby on the way & he's getting all the attention he can now!

    well, last night was a lot better. he cried himself to sleep within a few minutes (had to, i just couldn't cope... but i felt so bad... but it worked) and he woke a fewtimes but just a little, put dummy back and turned on "music for dreaming" and he kept sleeping. yeah!!

    yes, i think he might sense something is up (and mommy is grouchy from the p/g... oooops)
    i really wonder how it will all be with 2 munchkins.........

    okay, one floppy tired baby is squiming on my lap, better go and have a family snooze

    it's so quiet in here - where is everyone??

    Snowy, glad to hear Wolf slept a little better last night. Fingers crossed this turnes into a habit. It must be so hard looking after Wolf and being pregnant. I can still remember how tired I would get in the early days of pregnancy and oh, the morning sickness. You deserve a big =D> !!

    Mel, the walker sounds great. I keep thinking about getting one for Aidan but always seem to change my mind for one reason or another! That teddy bear sounds adorable, I cant imagine ever being that crafty!

    I have been MIA for a little while as I was quite sick a few weeks ago with severe abdominal pain (I think it turned out to be due to a change in diet - I am trying to lose weight and had a binge on the Saturday night, the same night the pains arrived). Anyway due to a very thorough doctor I had an u/s and they discovered I had polycystic ovaries which was quite a shock. Not sure what to think so not thinking about it right now. I just hope it doesnt cause any problems with TTC #2 when we start (maybe the start of next year).

    Hope everyone is well and look forward to hearing about all the babies!

    Hi Everyone,

    Snowgirl sorry to hear about your lack of sleep That would be hard being pg!

    Well I keep forgetting about new threads and new months starting lol and at the moment I cant access my emails grrrr so im not getting alerts...

    It is pooring with rain here this morning but on the upside I am going shopping for outfits for a wedding we are going to

    DP has started a new job and gets up at 3am home by 11, thing is lately I have been getting up at 3 too coz I cant get back to sleep...

    Jaykob is well, although not really showing many signs of wanting to move.. He says dadda now, DP was stoked and was worried I would be sad that he didnt say mum first lol (well i was a little, but we wont tell him that)

    Hope all your babies are sleeping like a dream!!

    snowy - that is great that wolf slept well - fingers crossed he keeps it up

    jess - sorry to hear you have been sick hopefully your belly is much better now

    colleen - does jaykob get up at 3am too? thought he might hear you guys & think it was time to get up too!

    we are having a quiet day at home today - we went to seaworld yesterday for DP's birthday - i gave him a swim with the dolphins as a surprise & he loved it - eliana liked the animals she could see & was fascinated by the dolphins

    it's almost lunch time here so better check the other forums out & find something to feed eliana

    2 good nights in a row and then last night again awake for 2.5 hours... he ALMOST fell asleep several times and then rolled over, got on all fours and was wide awake again. I was so frustrated, I just let him cry. Then after a good half hour of him crying, I put him back on his back, put in the dummy and he fell asleep. It's really weird, I can't figure out what's going on with him. he's not in pain or anything, he just seems to be wide awake and wants to play...

    oh, swimming with the dolphins.. that's my absolute dream!! so want to do it one day. SIL did it and it looked so neat! What a great present. He must have been stoked!

    Wolf is just so gorgeous right now. He likes to crawl away from me and when I chase after him on all fours, he breaks out in hysterical laughter. It's so cute. He also loves to play ball. He can actually roll/throw it to me (well, 80% of the time it goes to me) and when I pick it up, he laughs and thinks it's so funny. I'm so in love with my little man - is it possible that we love our little munchkins more and more every day? It feels like that to me at least... :hbeat:

    Hi everyone, it's pretty quiet in here! Hope everyone's well.

    Jess, I am so sorry to hear about your poor ovaries! Hope you are feeling heaps better now. It must have been such a shock for you.

    Snowy, hope Wolf has been sleeping better for you. Is the m/s easing off yet?

    Woohoo Colleen on Jaykob saying dada. Kaleb is still stuck on baba and that's about it, apart from blowing raspberries.

    I just can't believe how active Kaleb is now and how much attention he demands. He is just constantly crawling and climbing and hates being inside. Days where we're at home all day are a nightmare, it is so much easier being out and about. Can 7 month olds already start showing signs of ADHD, because that's what it feels like, lol!

    Yes, we have been very quiet. I think ever since Dachlostar graduated to the next group we've lost an avid poster :smt039 *hi dachlostar, we miss you* :smt039

    Well, Wolf slept through until 5 a.m. - would you believe it?? I think I've actually figured it out: we both have a nasty stomach bug. DH had it in the beginning of July for almost 2 weeks and he must have passed it on to Wolf and then Wolf to me. No wonder he's been pooing 3-4 times a day. But yesterday just twice, so I guess he's getting better (which can't be said for me... arrrg..)

    Morning sickness is on and off... usually bad in the evenings and the stomach cramps from the bug aren't helping either. Sometimes I wonder whether I feel like throwing up because of m/s or because of the bug.

    Beth, yes, it does seem to get more exhausting, doesn't it? The time when you could just leave them somewhere and they a) couldn't go anywhere and b) were content are over... but it's so exciting to watch them explore the world (unless it's the toilet stone... lol)

    colleen - i know what you mean about being by yourself - im 35 in november & still freak myself out - at least you have your little guy to protect you!

    snowy - that is great that wolf is sleeping better - eliana has had a two bad night but i think she is teething - hope you are both feeling better & that your m/s goes soon - it is quiet without dach

    we went looking at display homes yesterday - thinking of building so thought we would see what was out there & if we both like the same thing (luckily we do) DP carried eliana in the baby pouch (wasn't sure if she was too big for it) but she loved it & of course seeing herself in the all the mirrors in those place - poor DP's shoulders were sore though

    beth - sounds like kaleb is into everything - just wait till he is walking! i keep forgetting to ask if you ever met up with some mums in a park at chermside when kaleb was little? there was a mum with a kaleb who came to our first meet & just wondering if it was you?

    eliana hasn't put on much weight lately - in fact she hasn't put any on in about a month - she weighs 8.6kgs now & is 74cm long (that's not alot considering she was 5.1kgs & 58cm born) i will see how she goes this week as she is still eating, pooping & weeing ok

    hope everyone had a great weekend

    Melbee, Jaykob too slowed down in weight gain for a bit (4.5 kilos born & 11.5+ now) But i think with bigger bubs they tend to slow down alot more than other babies because theres more to lose if you get what I mean?
    I was worried because he didnt gain in a month but the clinic said it was ok coz hes a bit too big anyways lol

    Snowgirl
    - Sorry to hear bout the M/s, but great that Wolf slept through to 5! Not good about the stomach bug...

    Beth I can relate to the being out and about thing, when we are home it seems really draining to be entertaining , but if we go shopping he seems happy with the sites IYKWIM

    Not much news here, Jaykobs loving going swimming lately, Im getting him prepared for swimming lessons, Must admit Im enjoying going to the pools aswell.. its relaxing..

    Pretty quiet weekend here, they all seem to be that way... Such a boring lot we are!

    Hope you are all well!

    Hi Girls-
    just thought I'd pop my big head in and see how you are all going.

    Snowy- sorry to hear you are suffering from lack of sleep, not what you need when pg, but hopefully it is just a tummy upset and it gets better soon. Where is Wolf sleeping now? Is he too cold at night? What about day sleeps, how does he go there? Try not to worry too much about having 2 close together. There is 18mths between Jemma and Jessica, and I won't tell you it was the easiest thing in the whole world, but once you get into a routine it is so nice to have them close together. They are starting to interact now and it is just gorgeous.

    melissa- I wouldn't worry about Eliana's size. Jessica was 3kgs born and at 10 mths weigh in was 8kgs and 68cms tall. As long as she is growing and developing, it doesn't really seem to matter. Seems like Eliana is quite happy and healthy, so try not to stress!

    Jess- I hope you are feeling better, and also hope the ovary thing doesn't cause probs for you down the track.

    Hello to everybody else. I guess some of you will be in the 9mths forum soon! How scary. jessica is now 11mths and i am about to send out bday invites, it has just flown and it is very sad, but time just flies!

    Best wishes Michelle

    thanks for the reassurance - it's more my DP's mum that says i should get her checked but everything else seems normal & she is tall for her age

    mitch - great to hear your girls are going well - i will be up there soon & it is scary to think our babies will be turning one soon - the time has just gone way too fast

    i am spending the day doing housework - i have my mum, sister-in-law, niece & nephew coming tomorrow (they don't come down to brisbane often - im the one that goes up the coast to see them) so im busy making sure everything looks good - i know they probably don't care but a a good tidy up never hurt anyone - just need to keep my little helper occupied!!

    just to further calm you mel, jess was 8.55kgs today at 11mths 1 wk, 71 cm tall and hc 44.6cms, which makes her 20th percentile height and 30th percentile weight, MCHN is not concerned.

    regards michelle
