    Jacci- i would gladly take those fitted nappies off your hands!!!! As long as your sure there is no-one else you can pass them on to? Great news on Charlies routine! Hopefully after a few more days your body will get used to the new routine and you wont feel as tried?? You sure are a busy woman!

    Abs- Great that Jen has found some friends with bubs similar age! Makes you feel half human when you hear other bubs are going through similar stages. And you learn soo much off other mums and dads too! As for the birth stories, Im still in shock that I delivered Logan at 9lb12lb without any drugs myself!!!

    Theresa- Dont you just love MIL's!!!!Mine is exactly the same re; the whole coke thing! waht are they thinking!!!!! Was reading your post and was going to suggest a swing of some sort but you have already worked that out for yourselves!I really hope it continues to work for you and you get some peace during the day. Also all the best today with OB app. hope you arent put through too much discomfort..

    Sushee- Thank you for your help I have sent you an email, I look forward to finding out some more info!

    Huge Hello to everyone else!!

    Me- we are all doin great Logan is also only waking once a night now so im feeling a lot more refreshed of a morning. Although I have noticed he is feeding every 2hrs during the day now rather than every 4hrs? but if it means less feeds at night i really dont mind. Got a shock yesterday, was dressing Logan into a 000 romper suit and it wouldnt fit him!so my little man is now wearing 00 at 8weeks of age!!
    Well another weigh in tomorrow along with his first needles..... Have decided not to take Jasper with, dont think he really need to watch a needle go in to his little brother.
    Logan is starting to stir better have a quick shower before he really gets going.

    KelliC, great pics, she's got soo much hair, cute.

    Amanda, that's great. Holly was rolling on her side from about that age, but I never thought to let her try to roll on her tummy until I read ur post last wk & she did. I've got no idea on when they should do what, gees, hehe. :-)

    Great results Sooz.

    Jacci, ditto, miss the people at work. Oh how scary coming home to an empty house. :-)

    Theresa, yay on the wing. A friend used the swing rocker too for her 1st bub & it worked a treat. Hope it doesnt hurt too much for ur IUD. My DH is having withdrawals, as I'm still bleeding. I will start takin the mini pill when it stops, as plan on tryin again when Holly's 6-12mths old.

    Cute pickies everyone. :-)

    Last Fri (7.5wks), Holly rolled on her tummy (took few mins but she did it) & started going 9-11hrs between feeds at night (from 6-7pm ish), yay. Have the latest smily pic in my ticker, oh so cute, hehe. :-) Also the week before that, she started wriggling her way up the cot, lil monkey, half out of her anti-roll cushions, gees they have some strength in their legs & hands.

    Shel- Congratulations on Holly rolling on her belly thats great!!

    I have no idea at what stages i can expect Nixon to start things. He is 6 weeks old today therfore could start smiling any day, but was 6 1/2 weeks early so i could have to wait a further 6 weeks to see a smile.... Although if he was born @ 37weeks he'd be classed full term and therfore wouldnt be behind so may only be 3 weeks behind schedule?? Who knows...... He has Paed appointment in 2 weeks so will be 2 months old by then & i can ask questions if he is not doing things yet.

    I had my parents down interstate this w/e so did not log on, hello to all hope bubs mums dads are all going well!

    Anna I've emailed you back!

    Hey all!

    abs, yes Charlie is an IVF bub. He 'took' on our 8th cycle, our 7th transfer. I sometimes can't believe he's here! I remember you posting in the LTTTC thread once, so I knew Jordan's an IVF bub too. Aren't KellyW's twins as well?

    Since my last post I've had 2 consecutive nights of 6 and a 1/2 hour sleeps! Charlie fusses like hell in the evenings and doesn't nod off until about 10pm, but then he sleeps to 4.30am or so! I feel a million bucks!

    Plus he's just begun to smile when I talk to him. He used to smile at blank spaces previously, but now connects his gaze to mine before cracking a grin. He also laughs if I sing to him (an indictment of my horrible singing voice!)

    His paed appts on Wed and my 6 week check is on Tues. Lucky me, at least I won't have to worry about contraception! I can't fall pg naturally anyway!

    Sushee, yep, Kell's twins are IVF too

    Sleep - Jordy is actually passing out at around 5 or 6pm through til midnightish, then up again every 2,3,4 hours etc - ahh well

    Jacci, Jordy was only 51cm at birth - I think Melbel who posted my initial details posted the wrong info (I might have sent her the wrong numbers). At his 6.x week check he was 54cm too. Still waiting for some proper full on smiles, though Jen reckons she's seen a few. At birth he was 3290, was 3240 on discharge and was 4640 when we last weighed him (almost 2 weeks ago). We forgot last Friday that where the parents group is held that they have a baby scale. Hopefully we'll remember to weigh him this friday


    I wonder how Kelly is going with her work and looking after the twins... Jen isn't getting anywhere near as much as she hoped done. Now wants me to take a 30-60 min break during the day so she can return calls, check emails etc... Will do after lunch, as often stuff is happening workwise around the 12-1 mark


    Had more homemade chicken/avocado/etc sushi rolls for dinner tonight - Jen absolutely loves it... tis much nicer than shop bought ones. All it requires is one cup of sushi rice, 4 sheets of the seaweed, one breast of chicken, half an avocado, plus various condiments (soy, ginger, wasabi, vinegar etc) - probably do the whole dinner for well under $10 in ingredients, and we were both very full. This could well be a weekly feast

    Abs- i tried making sushee once but did not turn out well at all, the smell of the seaweed just turned me off, but doesnt normally with bought ones.... we only eat chickn/avacardo ones dont like fish!

    Nixon's sleeps are all over the place, during the day he goes 3-4hrs nights well a couple of times he went 6-7hrs but last night was a shocker, i think he is having another growth spurt. i got about 3hrs sleep i think.... I only got out of bed at midday i finally got a further 2hrs after feeding him again and he is still asleep. i was falling asleep whilst he was still sucking and had a massive headache....hopefully he is abit more settled tonight.

    Nickers,
    I know what you mean about Nixons sleeps being all over the place, last night I also only got a couple of hours sleep, I fed her at 1:00am and 04:00am and then she would wake every 10 minutes. She has only had 1/2 hour sleep total this morning as well. I am so tired...Oh well hopefully she settles into a routine soooooon... I may try and keep her awake as late a s possible tonight and see how she goes.

    Hello to everyone else....

    Logans needles went well I choose to hold him while he got them. It was horrible to hear him squeal and cry and he is sooo strong i really had to hold him down poor little man... But after it was all over he fell asleep for about 5mins,then when he woke I gave him a feed and he was back to his usual self! Just hope he is settled tonight, got the baby panadol on hand just in case?
    He now weighs 5860gm 12lb 15oz and is 60cm in length and a big noggin at 40.5cm
    Hard to beleive 8 weeks have passed so quickly.
    Hope you are all well!

    Kellie & Nickers - Charlie has only just started this routine in the last week. Before that he was all over the place. Hopefully both your little ones will settle down and sleep soon.

    Nickers - does it take your little boy longer to form habits because he was early?

    Jordy stats from today - it's been 12 days since his last measurements were taken, so they'll be listed here in 3's at Birth / 12 days ago / today

    Weight: 3290 / 4640 / 5400
    Length: 51 / 54 / 54.5cm

    They were extremely happy with all results

    Nickers, I don't like fish either, and don't notice a smell of the seaweed. Just gotta remember to not overload with rice, etc, otherwise you can't roll it closed... also need to roll really tightly, otherwise it collapses after being cut. The ones I made last night, I was pretty scarce with the rice (not quite enough for all 4 sheets), and they turned out perfectly... I remember the very first batch I made some time back, I put far too much rice on and couldn't roll it closed. I also leave about an inch of uncovered seaweed to help close it... No need to moisten it either

    Hello all,

    This thread is nice and full but hope there is room for one more! Willmartin is seven weeks old today (SHOCK!) so it's probably time I joined the virtual parents' group.

    Mmmm ... sushi ... ABS you've inspired me. I think I'll pick up some ingredients when I go shopping.

    Anna, I agree, you are a legend delivering your 9lb 12 oz baby without drugs. Mine was over 9lb too but born by caesarean and I think the first thing out of my mouth was "Oh my God, I would never have been able to get him out!"

    Shell, that is great that Holly can roll. She's a quick study!

    Sushee, the cloth nappies are great. I just joined in that thread and started reading everything. It's probably only a matter of time till I'm converted too.

    Has anyone else got the Hugabub or similar babywrap? We've been using ours since hospital and Willmartin loves it. It had to go around the corner to the drycleaner for repairs (seam came undone and I don't have a sewing machine) so we've been without it for a few days. We miss it ... things just aren't the same in the pram and I think WM has come to anticipate some time "being worn" each day so he is restless when that doesn't happen.

    Yesterday I ordered a spare wrap (this one from Bear Hug Baby) to have as backup in case we are without the Hugabub again at some point. God forbid! Hopefully it arrives sometime this week.

    Time for a shower while someone sleeps. Talk later.

    Hi Mel
    Jen has had Jordy in the Hugabub heaps too - he really loves it. I haven't had a chance to put him in it on me yet though

    And of course you are more than welcome, and have every right to be a fully fledged member of this group. And I see WM is another IVFr... that makes 4 of us (you, us, Sushee and KellyW) - anyone else ??

    mel- welcome - i don't have a hug a bug but some one gave me one of those carry things (only way i know how to explain it. the other night i put charlie in it when he was a bit grumpy and he went straight to sleep it was great - i think i might have to invest in a hug a bug

    abs that is great speed of growing.

    well i am going back to work for 3 hours 1 day a week (starting today) i am teaching here at the local TAFE - personal tax to the kids doing Cert 4 in accounting
    3 hours is not too bad to be away from charlie

    Hello Everyone,

    Olivia had her health centre appointment this morning. Her stats re as follows.
    4309 grams
    Head 37cm
    Length 54.7 cm
    She has grown so much....

    They did however find a problem. Her left hip is clicking which can be a sign of hip dysplasia. We have been referred to a specialist for an ultrasound next week, at worst she will have to be in harness or plaster for up to 12 weeks. It upset me so much even to think that my little girl has to have an ultrasound. I should be grateful it can be corrected. So for the selfish post I just had to get it out.

    Abs,
    Jordan is certainly growing well. Before we know it we will be celebrating their 1st birthdays

    Kelli- sorry to hear Olivia needs to have an ultra sound, It must have been upsetting for you but like you said atleast it can be corrected. AT WORST she would need to be in a harness for 12weeks, although that seems like a long time, 12 weeks is a pretty small portion of her life, to have her hips back to normal.
    Let us know how she goes, will they tell you on the spot if they find anything or will they make you wait for results to come back to dr?

    Sorry to hear that Kelli - Olivia is longer than Jordan, but a full kg lighter

    I had news yesterday that I'm gonna be rather busy on Jordy's 1st Birthday... it'll be the Tuesday immediately before Easter (Easter Sunday is April 8 next year) - we have my sports national championships that week and continuing through the Easter weekend

    I haven't judged at the Nationals in several years coz it's been up just NW of Brisbane, early January - the weather sux big time then for my taste. Next year, better weather, and will be just outside of Sydney - I'll have to take some time out on the day


    PS you'll need to update your signature - mum to 3 girls now


    Oh, Jen's just been out shopping - got a new feeding pillow, one that doesn't cut her in half when doing it up, and also a "kindercot" - see the Babies Galore website, new releases, page 7. It's quite large. but folds up fairly small

    Abs, yikes, sushi, yuk, hehe. Yeah I wonder how KellyW is going, baby Hayden was due to have his surgery today (or yesterday).
    Abs, just an AIH'er here (IUI'er).

    Sush, can't wait to c those christening pics.

    KelliC & Nickers, hope ur bub's start sleeping longer so u can get some sleep.

    KelliC, don't stress, u/sounds are safe. Holly's had 4 already, 2 for her clicky/loose hips (from being breach, mine were like that too but wasnt breach) & they matured just fine. More info in my 'milestones' in www. U/sounds at 3days, 4days, 4wks & 6wks old.

    AMH, wow ur lil man is growin. U too Abs. Holly had her needles yesterday too, although wasnt that bad, only takes 30secs & a cuddle from mum & all over, much better than the 1.5hr blood test she had at 4wks, poor bubbies. They seem to forget pretty quick smart though huh. Did u hear about the Rovatix vaccination that's now avail by script, approx $100/dose, 2mth & 4mth oral doses (given at home), for rotor gastroenteritis immunity for life. The info only came out on Mon.

    Mel, glad ur back & great to hear everything's going well with u both. I might have to join the cloth thread, have some minappies but they're still too big for Holly & haven't tried using the std ones. Well Holly has only done it once so far, but has come pretty close to doing it again a few times (from back to tummy), so guess it won't be long, also considering she's the oldest bub.

    That's handy hours Jacci, hopefully ur Charlie's will sleep while ur gone.

    BF success, stopped using the shield last Tue as Holly has stopped biting, just like the CHN said she would (with maturity), yay.
