    Hey, I got a pretty good nights sleep last night, also should add down to about 5 condoms too! Although we have discussed having 1 more cycle then trying... so have had 2 neg OPK's this month thus far should be coming up though, so next month we should be getting it right on time!
    Indah is going through her eating chubby stage where her eyes are squishy & she looks all bloaty & fat, but then in a few days we will see her clothes are all too short, I have noticed with Maddy (our tiny girl...Soph) That it happens maybe once a year that she looks like she is chubbing up & then her pants wont fit, she wasnt in size 1 by 1 yr, yet Indah wears some 1's already!!! she is gonna be alot taller than Maddy, but who cares, I am way shorted & rounder than my sisters! They are both tall & skinny, have no rob eating anything, I am my auntie!
    I got last night when grabbing stuff from shops with Indah... How old is she, 8months I said, wow she is small, very next shop they ask how old & smile etc at her, I say 8 months, Gee she's in a good paddock! So it's in the eyes of the person you talk too, I couldnt see her changing shape from 1 shop to the next...
    People like to comment & I think as parents we protect our kids so we do take it to hear what peoples opinions are of our kids! I just ignore strangers, infact i ignore anyone who doesnt say something nice!!!!

    Indah is full of a cold all snotty but I can just now hear her stirring... I have training again today luckily it's with my mate the hot, sexy Maori guy, we go out socially with his wife & daughter so we can just chat!!!

    Poor Bubba's all out of whack, although it's best during the week so our weekends are more fun... I guess I try to see the good in the bad...



    Cass i hope Kaitlyn is feeling better poor possum...
    Hope everyone is good, will try to catch up from work...


    OOOH also waiting for a FredBare yoga wrap with the OM, bear on it to finish on E-bay I have wanted 1 for ages for our princess, but too expensive it finishes in a few mins, is brand new too, they were going for $40+ it's currently $12!!!!

    Tracey - Glad you got a better night sleep and whoohoo for being down to 5 condoms! Mmmm I think Maori guys are very nice indeed. Always had a bit of a soft spot for them!

    Cass - Just make sure Kaitlyn is hydrated enough, that is the main prob with diarrohea. Try a gastrolyte drink from the chemist. Lucie wouldn't touch it though! My dr said to stop the formul for 24 hours then introduce again diluted gradually. But after doing that a couple of times I just stuck to full strength and in a couple more days we had solid stuff.

    Brooke, Jo and everyone - thanks heaps for your kind comments. Guess it will always hit a nerve with me, oh well she is just my little pocket rocket.

    Would anyone like a 9 month old girl? Another shocker of a night here and she is pretty grizzly this am, although currently occupying herself with the curtain and washing. Ah I am so tired!

    Oh and I think I might start switching Lucie to 3 bottles - how many bottle feeding mums are on 3 now or still 4? I was thinking it may make her more enthusiastic about solids. So perhaps she still gets her early one and the one around 10 (because she will then go down for a nap) and then I may make lunch later around 2, with just juice in the arvo, dinner around 5 or 6 and a bottle again before bed. Does that sound ok?

    Soph, Maybe try the 3 bottles & see how she goes, you can always give her an extra one if need be?
    Indah was a piggle when I got home from work, my choozies were massive as i had training & had no chance of expressing all day, so she fed from 1 while the other dripped into a facewasher, then played, then wanted other boob so had that, then dinner which was not alot, as she is too full of snot, then her cup which she drank a bit water from & then a 220ml bottle!

    So between 4:30 & 7:30 she had 2 full boobs & a 220ml bottle!!!! Plus she'd had boob in morning & 2 x 200ish ml bottles of EBM during the day & water!!!! Plus sandwiches, weetbix etc! Phew no wonder she lopoks porky at the moment!!!

    Soph, you love Lucie & Mick loves Lucie & we all love Lucie so wha cares what strangers say or think!? Maddy was the same & Indah is totally different, you know bubs #2, you'll be wondering if your over feeding it copz it's eating so much!!! there is no hard fast rule so let her tell you if, what & when she is hungry if she poos & wees she is fine!!!

    I got the Top for about $22, still half price really!!!!

    Whoohooo Trace...sleep and sex...lol..sounds like a great night! Hope the training session went well...and wow Indah must me spurting! Sounds like a great bargain too..wtg.

    Cass sorry to hear Kaitlyn is still not well..hope it all clears up for you.

    Well ive spent the morning shopping ...love retail therapy..makes the world a better place! Gotta a little trike for Sammy..the eurotrike i think its called from toy word. I can strap him in and push it...ive been trying it out around the house and he loves it. Cant wait to go for a big walk with him in it tomorrow. Was sad though cos at the shops there was a mum who was quite clearly frazzled with a fairly new bubs but she was dishing it out to her toddler ...i felt so sorry for the little boy. Everyone just looked at her.

    Hey Girls

    Jo, sounds like a good morning! The trike sounds great - Sammy will love hooning around on it! Poor little boy at the shops though. I hate seeing stuff like that.

    Soph, Josh has 3 day bottles and a 10.00pm dreamfeed. He used to have bottles early morning, mid morning, early afternoon, late afternoon + his dreamfeed. Then he started refusing his mid morning bottle, so we dropped it altogether and shifted his day feeds to the standard breakfast, lunch & dinner times. He has morning and afternoon tea snacks & juice in between. He goes much better now. He drinks more formula per feed and has a good amount of solids after his formula. I think your plan sounds good. Lucie will let you know if she likes it or not, anyway! I hope you both get heaps of sleep tonight too...

    Cass, how did you & Kaitlyn go at the docs? I hope they were able to help her out, poor little poppet. Hope she is feeling better and finding her appetite again soon.

    Brooke, glad to hear that your appointment with the paed went well. What a relief for you. BTW, I'll keep everything crossed for a BFP for you this month!

    Tracey, 5 condoms! Go you! Bring on the TTC! Can I just say also, Tracey, that I read your posts in here + your ones in the premmie forum and others, and I think you just have the most refreshing attitude when it comes to your outlook on life and the advice that you give - so positive.

    Fletch, how are you doing, chick?

    You too Storm, how are you?

    Louise, hi!

    We've had a nice day - pretty quiet. DH had the day off work. I bought some bubble blowers the other day so we've been out in the back yard blowing lots of bubbles. Josh loves to watch them and the dogs love to chase them - everyone's happy! We've had a couple more good nights sleep here...Tuesday night, one wake up and back to sleep until 6am...and last night he slept through until 6am! Yay! Not sure if it's going to last, so I'm making the most of it...

    Hi, its been ages since I have posted, we had to go to Tamworth for a funeral and only got back late Tuesday night.

    Soph - congratulations on the house buying. Hope Lucies thrush has cleared up.

    Storm - I use baby balsam on Maria + I use a vaporiser, it has worked wonders for all of us (Maria is still in our room - grrr), but I am worried that the room is too damp suring the day.

    Barley - I would have used the same language if Maria was hosed down - what an idiot. Re sleeping, if wrapping works, keep doing it. Maria won't sleep properly if I put her in a sleeping bag, I am kicking myself for paying for the expensive one as well. Hope Indah is feeling better and you have had some sleep. It is soo hard to work when you are sleep deprived.

    Cass - the pizza scrolls sounded lovely, pity I had to miss the class. Hope Kaitlyn is feeling better.

    Brooke - hope you have kicked the gastro fairy out of your house, sounds like it was sent to Cass's place. Good luck with the TTC.

    Bec - your dinner out and the bubble blowing sounds lovely. Will have to try the bubbles with Maria.

    Maria has had another growth spurt, now 7.2kg clothed. We got to play with puppies today, we were at the Bondi shopping centre pet store when they were about to let the dogs out for a run, they girls let us stay in the store and play with the puppies instead of asking us to leave, Maria loved it.

    Small problem with solids though (hopefully not TMI), every time I put her in her high chair she thinks it's time to do a poo, thus won't eat, making feeding time a very long affair, very frustrating.

    Well we are of to the zoo on the weekend, and maybe Monday afternoon as well (have zoo tickets from work).

    Hope everyone else is well

    Morning everyone

    Hi Louise! Lovely to have you back and yay on the growth spurt Maria!

    Bec - Thanks for the info re the bottles. Very cute with the bubble blowing too. I'll have to give it a go. Gorgeous new pic of the boy too!

    Jo - the trike thing sounds awesome. Bet Sammy has a ball today.

    Cass - How did you go at the docs?

    Tracey - Thanks for the info too. Indah sounds so cute!

    Another rough night here. Grrrrrrrrrr. Fingers crossed tonight is better. DH is away all weekend at his school reunion in Vic, so one tired mumma here.

    Thank-you so much Bec.... You have made my day with such nice comments...!

    OOOH, Soph, make the most of a relaxing weekend without DH, I think mine is going out for a harley ride on w/end so the girls & I are just gonna chill & do nothing, maybe some baking!?

    OOOh Jo, that trike sounds so cool... I hope Sammy enjoys his ride...

    Hey Louise, sounds like Maria is doing wonderfully well.

    Cass I need the recipe of the pizza swirly things!!! Might make them up for my girls this weekend... I hope Kaitlyn is feeling better.

    Fletch, for goodness sakes let DH breath!!!! Hugs to mr Zane!

    How you doing Storm? Hope all is going chipper!

    Indah was asleep when I got to Mum's so I left her there & she slept from 2:30 til 6:30, then was a happy little vegemite...
    Mum & Dad had her yesterday & had to take her with them to Dr's etc, Mum's ankle is still not much better, she broke her foot when I was on maternity leave & it's just not healing... So she had more scans etc & they took Indah whom entertained the dr's! Dad had to see a specialist for his MS, they have suggested having chemo 4 times a year, which he is kind of scared, worried & concerned about.... So he isnt sure that's what he wants to do, there seem to be a lot of side effects!
    So poor bubba got dragged here & there so was pooped in arvo...
    She slept Ok last night woke at 3:30am & Dh couldnt resettle her so he woke me & put her in bed so I just fed her & popped her back in her room... I hope to have a bit of a rest this w/end... She is still full of snot & phlegm too, she is proper crawling & started trying to pull herself up now...
    She gets weighed next Wednesday & I think she is so chubby/pudgy at the moment, but will have a spurt & be tall all of a sudden...
    Ok gonna go swoosh around & check a few other threads out before working!!!

    Soph - are you able to sleep when Lucie sleeps during the day, a nap is the only thing keeping me sane when Maria is overly active in the night, stuff the housework.

    Barley - hope Indah's snot and phlegm clear up, Maria still has lots as well and sounds terrible in the mornings when she wakes up. Best wishes for your parents, hope they are better soon.

    Louise - Yeap I usually do, I am cranky myself if I don't! #2 is kicking up a storm though so it makes it difficult sometimes.

    Tracey - Hope your mum's ankle gets better. Sorry I didn't realise your dad has MS. I am sure Indah was a total charmer yesterday!

    Lucie now weighs 8kg!!!!! Can't believe she managed to put on 400g in a month when she was so sick for over a week. Still only little but she's moving the right way!

    Hi ladies

    Bec what a fantastic idea. I bet Josh loved the bubbles. Im gonna have to try that one myself..arent you a clever cookie!

    Louise you do sound like you have been busy. Awww i bet Maria loved the puppies. I think the pet shop is one of Sammys favourite places too! Have fun at the zoo you lucky thing. We were thinking of taking Sammy to the Perth zoo for his first birthday and make a weekend out of it.

    Trace I think you deserve a nice relaxing weekend. Baking sounds fantastic. Sorry your dad is facing chemo right now. I hope all goes well for him..it must be a very daunting process ahead. I hope Indah starts feeling better soon..poor little snuffly missy.

    Soph you are amazing. I keep forgetting you are so pregnant and Im tired with Sammy! I cant imagine how you must be feeling. You poor thing. I hope you get to chill out a bit and rest..and your dh comes and treats you like a queen when he gets back.

    We had a lovely morning today. I met up with a friend and the little girl she looks after. We took Sammy for a big ride on his trike and then went to the park. It was sooo busy. There was a mums group there with lots of kiddies so it was nice. Is everyone in a new mums group? Im starting to feel like I must be the only one not in one....maybe there needs to be groups for not new mums lol.

    Hi Girls ,

    just a quick one as Kaitlyn and i are both ill now!!!! I have spent the whole day wanting to vomit and poor Kaitlyn is the other end!. And tomorrow DH and I are meant to be horse riding int he morning and then going to Nicks Seafood at Bondi for a romantic lunch together !! the idea of the lobster I planned to have is making me want to vomit!!!.

    Dr said just to wait it out until Kaitlyn gets better...dont feel very confident in her advice as I am sure she was about 20!!!!!!!!. I have dont what you do Soph and weaken her formula strength. Though we did weight Kaitlyn and she is 10kgs on the dot!!!! she is so tall ...she does not have little fat rolls anymore :-(....man i think she is going to tower over me!. Ok off to bed as Kaitlyn is keeping me up due to her tummy pains :-(

    Hope you are all well I will jump on and do personals tomorrow night.

    Cass
