    abs - Charlie has said Dad for a while and gav loves it!!!



    Nickers - I got told after 39 to worry about it, but i think it has to be over 39 for a certain time - I am not the best person to ask so maybe go into the midwives forum and they will be able to help you.

    Charlie has had a cough but never anything more - hope it doesn't turn into anything else for him - you have been so lucky for having no sickness - can it be more common in prem babies to get sick?

    just been reading up on the whole bronchiolitis deal and it can be more common with premmie babies. however in saying that i would kind of think premmie babies meaning they still havent reached their EDD and still very young?? I just went and took his temps again and they were down to mid 36's,& doesnt feel as hot so feel a bit better about that and if his cough gets worse i will get it looked at tomorrow.

    Evening all...hope everyone had a good day/nights sleep seeing you'll all be seeing this in the morning.

    nickers - hope you enjoyed your trip and that Nixon is feeling better. Josiah has been a bit unwell also, only an occasional cough, but a runny nose that just doesn't let up, and grumps galore.

    Sush - Have a FANTASTIC trip - I'm sure Charlie will be beautiful for you - he'll love looking around everywhere I'm sure.

    SS - haven't received one, and haven't sent mine yet either, will send it next week.

    abs - hope the 2nd trial at daycare goes better than the 1st. I must be a terrible mother, I never checked any of those things when janae first started going - in fact, I've only taken her and dropped her off a handful of times, Mark does it mostly because the daycare is right next to his work and he wouldn't think to check anything apart from making sure she's had a happy day.

    jac - how exciting that Charlie is calling your name, it's so cute isn't it. Josiah has started saying 'hello' at the right times - not clearly, but the sounds are close enough that we can make it out. He said it when my brother walked in Wednesday & today, and yesterday I was sitting floor talking on the phone, and when I hung up and put the phone on the floor, he picked it up and said it again. It's so cute, and he giggles when we make a fuss of it. He doesn't say anything else though.

    Theresa - yeah, it is hard with the 2, and Janae does the same as Em - coming in when I'm trying to put Josiah down - but only when I'm taking too long. Having the 3 year age gap has been fantastic, because Janae is old enough that she understands when I have to deal with Josiah - she'll even call me when he's upset with a 'Mum, Josiah needs you'. And they just love each other so much, Josiah just lights up when he even hears her voice, and she fusses over him, plays with him and gives him HEAPS of cuddles and kisses.

    Anyway, enough of my rambling, I should go to bed. Have a great weekend everybody.

    ball - so now i give him the little ball and say "throw the ball to mummy" and he piffs it - he is great at it! only took me about 5 goes and now he does it.

    It really is awesome now that i hear mumumumumumumum all the time! makes my job so much more worht while.

    Hi,
    Thanks Jacci, Nixon hasnt gotten any worse, nor any better.
    We were meant to go swimming today but ofcourse i didnt go. I decided to take him to the doctor anyway (they bulk bill so didnt cost anything)
    However my usual gp doesnt work sat so i had a different doc. she seemed a bit rushy for my liking but anyway checked his chest said it sounds good. said his cough sounds mucosey & prob has a viral infection.
    but when i aksed her at what temp does it become a concern i didnt really get an answer.
    his temp was good all day but now getting into the evening its gone back up in the high 38's, he hasnt been drinking much but still doing wet/dirty nappies. so again i will just keep monitoring him closely poor bubba.

    Shazz i did my own measurments a week ago on Nixon for 7months and he was 8kg & 44cm head! His length would prob be about 70cm. did u take Ryan to a place where they do them on certain dates or your gp? Cause when we take Nixon to the scheduled ones they dont measure them which i was hoping they would cause we dont see MCHN till 8months. (I like to keep a record for each month!)

    Jacci- yeah how quickly we get used to getting good nights sleeps and forgetting what it was like in the begining. i was like that last night with nixon & when he was teething & i was pretty grumpy the next day! must sound so cute hearing mummum i cant wait for that! what outfit did u decide for Charlie's Christening?

    Nickers - I hate when you go to the dr and they just rush you thru. Especially when it comes to babies. Hope that cough is ok. If you do find out what the temp is that we have to worry about will you let us know.
    We decided on a black suit for charlie - it is just a little pants, white shirt, black vest and bow tie. he looks so cute. ended up buying one coz i really want to put it in his box of goodies to keep.

    Shazz - Ryan is going great! hope he is ok with his needles

    nickers - my gp doesn't normaly weigh etc but I just ask and he gets the clinic nurse to do it - otherwise most MCHN's have a set of scales etc at their offices you can go and check anytime OR a lot of pharmacy's here have a CHN that are there one day a week to do measurments too - not sure if its the same where you are - here its mostly the ones attached to shopping centres that get them. Good to hear nixon's cough hasn't got any worse tho. My doc & a nurse on the health direct line told me anthing 39+ worry about, or 38 that panadol & other temp relief remeies wont bring down. If panadol is bringing his temp down, it shouldn't be too much to worry about - but somebody PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong

    Jacci - Thanks for the 7 mths wishes My body decided to celebrate too & AF has come back with a vengence today. It's been a nice 18 months without it!

    Oh I forgot to share last week - my sister had her baby! She had a baby boy last Tuesday in Fort Collins, Colorado - Matthew Robert is my 2nd American nephew. A healthy 8lb10oz - and oh so cute.

    Little mans is calling for hi dinner - better go. Hope everyones having a great weekend

    Bel- congratulations on becoming an Aunty again how exciting! bummer on AF returning...its like our body knows hey my AF returned on the annaversary we conceived Nixon!

    Thanks for the advice bel,jacci,Theresa. I am surprised nixon isnt sick of me taking his temps ive been doing it all day! it seems to go up and down he felt a lot hotter tonight but when i took his temp was mid 37's it took me over an hr to get him off to sleep he is just not himself. just have him in a nappy/singlet & summer sleeping bag. ive got the monitor next to me and poor thing coughs every 5-10mins

    Yeah my sister takes her DD to a chemist to get weighed etc in Sydney, i just figured it was a Sydney thing, i have never actually bothered to go to a local chemist and ask if they do it. gotta go to the shops tomorrow so if i remember i will go in & ask.

    i cant believe Gerogie is pulling herself up already! wow what a clever girl but i agree she is too little to be doing grown up things lol!

    well im taking a dvd to watch in bed, dh working away in perth on Pearl Jam.

    Hi Everyone,

    Hope you are all having a good weekend.

    Nickers..Hope nixon is feeling better soon

    Jacci... I liked Mr and Mrs Smith too. How cute that charlie can through the ball to you

    Bel.. Congrats on being and Aunty again! Bugger about AF, she always picks the best times.

    Theresa... Yay on G pulling herslef up, Abbey does it too, and I agree that they are growing up too quickly.

    Temps... Abbey is a hot baby, so her usual temp is about 37.5. The other day just before her tooth came in she was up to 38.9 but 2 doses of panadol brought it down.

    Do you all remember me talking about SIL feeding her 2 month old 210ml bottles? Well was talking to MIL today and Amelia is 3 months in a week but already weighs 10kg :eek: Abbey is going to look so tiny against her.

    Holy cow 10kg at 3months!!
    Ouch Shazz....
    I went and bought a vapouriser today from chemist, may or may not help but i thought it will come in handy for future anyway. so when in the chemist i asked if they have any MW that comes there and get baby weighed etc. The woman didnt know what i was talking about and said she has never heard of it in a chemist??
    Anyone in Melbourne know of any chemist that DOES do this? I know Sydney & perth they do.....

    Nixon's cough is worse it sounds so terrible, i needed to get some shopping today (seings been away for a week had nothing) and ppl kept looking at me every time Nixon coughed (probably think i am a bad mummy for taking a sick boy out with me, well had no choice DH is still away)

    Ok well I got a msg later tonight from MIL saying she had been mistaken and Amelia is 6.5kg, so not as big as I first thought thank god, but still she is just under what Abbey is now.

    Theresa... Good on you for having a nice night out, hope the girls give you a nice sleep in. It is a bit sad that they are so independent but she is still such a mummy's girl which is nice.

    Nickers... I have heard of chemist doing it and I have had abbey weighed at one in Dubbo. I don't know if its always a MW or CHN but sometimes they just have the baby scales there that you can use. Look for ones that advertise that they hire stuff like breast pumps etc out, you might have more luck. I really hope nixons cough gets better.

    Shell.. Yay on the bargains.

    We went ten pin bowling today for a friends bday, it was fun but I wasn't very good lol. Then had a bbq and poker game. It was a nice night out.

    Talk to you all tomorrow
