    Wow Dani- what a post! I think I must of missed (i don't know how I am on here 24/7 at the moment!) when you went to hospital. What happened? Bummer about the cost - I am sure you'll be getting that ambulance cover straight away. It's amazing how much it costs. When I had a car accident they had to fly me from here to Dubbo (3 hours) and all I could think of (in a neck brace & spinal board) is how much is this going to cost? You really shouldn't have to think like that. Anyway I didn't have to pay a cent - insurance from the driver - thank goodness. Marnie is sleeping too! But she will wake up any minute and i haven't had a shower yet. Better hurry!
    YOu can teach Jett to crawl later on if you think he'll start walking straight away. I teach Kinders to recrawl as part of their fine/gross motor skills. I have a great program if you want it later on...
    Kate - I only teach permanently one day a week in year 5,6 and Kinder. I usually pick up 2 days casual as well - which is great money!!!!!!!!! I think vitamins would be great - I currently take pregnancy/breastfeeding ones!
    Have a great day everyone! Enjoy the weather!
    I hope the wedding was fun Meg!

    Hey gorgeous girls! Hope you're all having delightful days - it's turned from a yucky overcast day here in Brisbane to quite sunny now.

    Been out and about with my best friends this morning...we don't see each other that frequently (every 6-8weeks) but we've been friends since Year 9 in high school. I feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends; and although I'm the only one with a baby at this point, one of my friends this morning told me they're into their 2nd month of TTC. SO excited for her!

    Anyway, we're back home (Maddy is having a cry in her cot because she has decided she won't nap even though she's sooooo tired) and we'll have to go back out in a few hours. My twin brothers turned 21 about 2 weeks ago and their party is tonight.

    Man, I really should stop being so slack and do a big long personal post to you all!

    Hi guys,
    Im here still!! The computer here has been SOOOOOOOOO slow, but tim changed their plan yesterday and it's fast again...thank goodness!!
    WEdding was lovely. I had a few champagnes and I know I looked completely drunk, but I was just sooooooooo tired. Can't do the late nights. Spent yesterday in a daze, well the morning anyway. Had a nap and was back to normal by arvo.
    Kate I take probiotics which my natropath friend got. I'd say it's the same thing. I never notice a difference with anything, but yesterday I bought a book, it's Holistic living and is all about yoga, meditation, sleep, health etc Im really looking forward to getting into it all. Hopefully some ideas on good foods also.
    Beck, how was your brothers 21st? how sweet, twin bro's!
    Dani, glad Jett is ok, not sure what the rash would be, was he hot? Heat rash is very common. Did he have a temp, because roseola virus is also very common, rash and temp...quite weird, but normal!
    I also think I missed he trip to hospital?? Sorry, could just be baby brain
    hope everyone has a great day. Were moving back downstairs today, inlaws coming home alnd Im quite sad about it all !! Loved having the place to ourselves

    Morning Ladies,
    Well we meet up for our Motherís group in the gardens and it ended up going till 1 am this morning, Big night!!!:eek:
    It wasnít so big for us mumís but the 4 dadís got stuck into the booze.
    We meet in the gardens at 2pm and hung around until 5, then I said we were having a bbq at home and then it was decided that we would kick on at Samiís (Yes, the one from here, oh she said to say to you all and she has been meaning to get on but has been so busy with Bailey on the go all the time).
    Well we got all of the bubs down to sleep and kicked back and had a bbq. The 4 dadís were trashed it was so funny as it was the first time any of them had meet and they all got on great.
    I canít wait to do it again. Ben is supporting a rather large hangover this morning, but he had a great time last night which is okay.
    I got taken to the hospital when I had the kidney stones a couple of weeks ago. I got taken 100 meters across the road as I was at my doctorís clinic and I got charged that much I canít understand that. They didnít even put me on a bed they just got me to get into the ambulance.
    I have softball training today at 11am so I better start to tidy myself up and this pig sty of a house I think I have toys in every darn room at the moment.
    Sunday is normally by house work day, I ripe right through the place so I betta get a move on while Jett is still catching ZZZZ.
    Bye all

    Hey Ladies,
    OMG, how sore I am I tonight. Softball training is killing me, I love it though!! We trained for 2 hours today.
    I then went to curves as it has opened up just around the corner from me. (Sarajo, the owner said the Curves started in Texas is that true???) My Brother does all of the computer work for them so I am not having to pay a joining which is great.
    My Mumma is a very big lady (size 24) and she is going to start too, which is great.
    Anyway betta go as I have to start work at 8am tomorrow.
    Night All

    Dani, your weekend sounds fun!! Classic about the dads!! You're so good with your sport and exercise!
    I got a book on the weekend about a holistic life plan, so Im going to start being healthier (including meditation, yoga, exercise and eating). I just feel so crap ALL the time (this is most prob due to havinga baby) but I figure at least if Im doing the best for myself I might be able to function. At the moment my memory is completely gone, to the point I can't even remember words, I just can't sleep, my back is agony and I look and feel tired and rundown at every moment. So it's going to be lots of water, herbal teas, stretching, fresh air and healthy food!
    Feeling rather stressed about the whole buying situation. Turns out the inlaws won't be helping us as much as we thought, and basically we can't afford to move. Unless we buy a unit, which is out of the question as that's where we just came from. Im so so stressed, I don't want to stay here.
    anyw ay, enough of a whinge, hope everyone is doing well.

    Hello ladies! Did you all have a nice weekend? We took Abby to a bounce gym where they have lots of stuff for her to do! She had a blast! We also took MORE pics! Well, Dons aunt from Germany sent Abby a halloween outfit when she was born and it fits now, AND the aunt is in New York visiting now, so we thought we would take pics so we could send them to here while she is in the states! Thats about all thats new here! I had a pretty headache free weekend, although today I have a pretty big one! I really hope they dont come back as bad as before I had abby!

    Dani you should get an award for the longest post ever! lol! You go girl and your softball! I played softball all through my life and in high school, and then I was on a team in college, and a church league and then that was it. All done! My dad was our coach growing up! I love the sport! And curves too! Good girl! You motivate me!!

    Awe meg, your poor thing! I hope everything works out with your move! Why arent your inlaws going to help? I really hope you feel better too! What a terrible time you are having! I just wanna give you a big hug!

    Beck sounds like you had fun with your friends! Yay for your one friend TTC. Itsnt it funny how you are the experienced one now?

    Kate how scarey about the tree! I hope you dont have termites! Yikes!

    Renee how are you feeling? I hope your cold is all better!!

    Oh did I tell you, Dons sister had her ultrasound and it looks like I will have a NIECE!! Yep she is having a girl! I think I will send her some of Abbys hand me downs! Im over the moon about having another girl in the family! Now I will have one nephew and one niece! Yay!!

    I need suggestions on a convertible car seat! Abby has finally outgrown her infant seat and we have to buy a new one. Britax is a bit too pricey for us. I would like one that is good up to 80 pounds or more! (36 kg) What are all of you using?

    Well, time for lunch! Talk to you all soon!

    Hello lovely ladies! I am trying to type this quickly as I am off to the gym and I'd like to get tea on. I am listening to Marnie crying out to me in her father's arms but he wants to hold her saying 'your not always going to be here for her let me!' It's true what he is saying but still breaks my heart so I thought I'd try an get 5 minutes on here to post althought I don't think I'll manage any personals.
    We have had a lot of relatives visiting and have David's mum and dad coming next week. I'll be back at work Monday and will probably end up going back for at least 2 days permanent this term. I am still trying to work out how I agreed to it but am also excited as I am starting a new project in Year 6 all about the environment and our impact (human) on it. It's a new style of programming and I am in charge so for the past week I have been trying to figure out how to do it and I think I have finally got my head around it. It is a bit difficult when you have a mummy brain and not a teacher brain.
    Marnie has finally stopped crying. Bless her.
    I am off to a wedding next weekend (by myself ! No DH and no baby girl!!!)
    I posted in breastfeeding chat about still being able to feed when I come back (i am going to pump whilst away) Anyway I didn't get a lot of feedback so am feeling quite guilty and suspect people just think I am being neglectful? I am already doing enough of that myself but she will have her father (who has to work and will see her morning and night)and be with her grandmother - what better care is that? Let me know what you girls think - am i terrible????????????????
    Can't believe Marnie is 10 months this week - where has the time gone?
    Have a great night - I am off to circuit!
    Sorry Sara - i don't think i'll be helpful as we bought a convertible that she can be in until she is 16kg (babylove)

    Dont worry Renee,sometimes my posts don't get answered! OF course you're not being neglectful. You're allowed to go out and enjoy yourself. I went to a wedding last week and WEANED her!!! (well, she weaned herself) but I tell you, i have no guilt. I adore my girls more than life it'self, I love them with all of my heart, but I NEED my time. I have many friends that go away for a week to 10 days without their kids. ONe mother in my mothers group is going to china for a week, her bub is 10 months and staying with the grandparents. I look at her and think what a good mum, she's taking care of herself and not feeling bad about it. Forget being a mater, we are human.
    I think it's also good for kids to get some attention from others than the mum, and it's good for them to have time away.
    Express if you want and feed when you get home, absolutely nothing wrong with that. She's 10 months now and can miss one feed of milk even, just have solids and water. I wouldn't worry, she'll be fine. And how is it you're going without DH? Sounds like bliss!
    gotta run, i have the three girls tonight and it's time for the older ones to go to bed.
    hope everyone is well.
    sarajo, I have had one seat from birth to about 18 kilos i think so Im no help either. hope everyone is well. xoxoxoxo

    Of course you are not being neglectful Renee!!! Dont feel guilty! I know plenty of people that go away for a couple of days and leave their 10 month old or so with grandparents! Megs right, it will be good for her to get used to another care-giver for a couple of days anyway! You have fun and just try not to feel guilty! I'm sure you will have a fabulous time! So back to work now? I dont think I will be going back for quite some time! we plan on having another baby in the next year or 2, so I think I am home for the long run!

    Meg how are you feeling? I hope your back is feeling better!

    Oh I got a carseat brand new from EBay. It is a Cosco Alpha Omega carseat It looks like this but has a little different fabric! We should get in in a week or so I think!

    Here's Abby's new pics! I know I take soo too many pics! lol! pictures!

    Hi Everyone!!!

    Im so bored. I hate going out during school holidays so we havent been doing much. But next weekend were all going to Batemans Bay (exactly where it is I dont know lol) to see Jasmines godfather! We were going to stay at his house, but I started to get a bit nervous with how Jasmine would go in a strange house, and if she would keep the entire household awake, so were staying in some place right on the beach. Im pretty excited but anxious about how Jasmine will be at the same time! Ive got 10 days to work myself up about it lol!!!

    Meg How is the new place? Any better than the old one? Bugger about the inlaws not helping as much. Can you possibly go a little bit further out of the city? Would that help, as prices do go down the further you go. Depends on what you guys really want. Woo hoo go the holistic way of life! Please let me know how you go with it all.

    Dani I love that you play softball! The majority of my friends are a softball crowd from back in the day. (The boys though, not the girls) I love it. Actually my friend Shaun, the one who passed away, used to play for NSW! Hard work!
    How funny about the Dads at playgroup! There is this other thing that we did at Gymbaroo to teach them to flip themselves over, so it sounds like Jett has just gone straight to that! The teacher there was the one who told me it was not good for babies not to crawl, something with their brains and that... Mind you, my brother never crawled at all. He was just too big. He would commando crawl but one day just got up and walked. Anyway the teacher said Jasmine looked like she wouldnt crawl, because she would always sit, but they said if she didnt, they could always come back to it and train her later. So I guess it doesnt matter what order its done in! Im sure Jett is just happy as he is so I wouldnt even worry. Jasmine just got frustrated and I think thats whats pushed her to taking steps now!

    Sarajo Abby is just toooo cute! Her eyes are just breathtaking!! I love how you do her hair. Jasmine doesnt have enough hair to do that. YAY for being an aunty again. A niece how cute!! I like the car seat you got, looks very comfy! Im like you, I wont be going back to work either. I want to, because I miss having 'work' to go to, and the socialisation..... but I wont be. Probably until Jasmine is in school anyway. By then I will probably be deemed useless pmsl!

    Renee I read your post in the feeding. I cant help because I know nothing about BF but I can tell you for sure that you are not neglectful at all!!!! Sometimes I dont get a response either, and when I do actually get more than 2 or 3... Im shocked. Grateful, but shocked. Then I thought of it this way, I read lots and lots of threads and I usually have something to say, but I dont always post. I tend to think someone who knows more might come along and answer. Or like when some guy is posting about his fat wife, I usually bite my tongue for fear of offending people...... but someone else resurrected that thread so I had to post *lol* I hope you have such a fun time! You will probably come back a new woman! Refreshed! We all need time to ourselves, and honestly, you are going to have to leave Marnie sooner or later anyway. Its not neglectful at all. You are a fantastic mother!

    Everyone else I hope you and your babies are well. Where are you all???????

    Hello Ladies,
    I am so stuffed, I have been starting at 8am everyday this week and working till 5:30pm. I went and spoke to my Big boss on tuesday and said that I can't do this many hours anymore as it is killing me. Good news is they have reduced them so that I will only do 30 hours a week in total which makes me very happy. I am doing a few 4 hour days next week and two 7.5 hour days, Yeah!!
    I have withdrawn my application for Team Leader as it was 40 hours a week and I can't do it. It is hard when I have to d full days on the 2 days so I can't see myself doing it everyday forever. All the mangers ask me if I am appling for the job and I told them I did but have withdrawn my application. Makes me a little sad as they are all telling me how great I would be at it.
    Jett Comes 1st and always will.
    Has anyone ever seen a shooting star? I was hanging out the washing and I just saw one, it kinda scared me until I worked out what it was. It is the most prettiest thing I have seen.
    Wow, it has been warm here today. We are in for another hot day tomorrow, 32 degress.
    Renee - If it makes you feel any betta Jett had his first night away when he was 6 weeks old. Us motherís need some me time, if I didnít I know I would go mental. I hope that you enjoy yourself
    Meg Ė I hope you have the best time tonight, I am sure that you look a million bucks!!!
    Sarajo Ė I agree with Renee, We can never have to many photoís of our babies. I love the new car seat, it is going to last her until she is at school.
    I couldnít open the attachment to look at the photoís, maybe it is just my pc.
    Anyway betta go as I have heaps to do and it is already 1/4 to 9
    Night All

    Kate sounds like you wil have a wonderful little holiday! Right on the beach? Cant beat that! You know, looking at Jasmine, I bet she does have enough hair for piggytails! I think she has more hair than Abby! You just have to grab what you can and use those ouchless bands. I didnt think Abby had enough hair to do anything with until I left her with a neighbor once and she came back with her pigtails!


    Meg have fun at your dinner! I love getting all dressed up! Take pictures!


    Dani I am so glad they cut your hours! Supermom needs a little break! lol! I dont know how you do it girl! I have seen probably hundreds of shooting stars, and they amaze me everytime! How cool that you saw your first one!!


    I am so tired today! Abby was up all night! I just dont get it why she will sleep through the night for weeks and then a night like last night! I always think something is wrong like she is sick or something. Or teething? Or maybe babies just do that sometimes! lol! I guess I should just be glad she doesnt do that everynight!


    Remember my neighbor that miscarried while I was pregnant with Abby? Well she had a baby girl yesterday! 3 weeks early and still 7 pounds 7 oz and 18 inches long! She will probably come home today! I cant wait to hold her!

    Hello Ladies,
    Very quite around here.
    I am so happy I have tomorrow off; I can spend the whole day with Jett. It is going to be hot so I might take him to the pool. It should be fun; I have never taken him before.
    I feel so great. I went to the supermarket and found a handbag on t trolley. With at lot of detective work I found the owner and she came over and picked it up. Turns out she had just ha a little baby boy 6 weeks ago. I didnít like to but I had to go through it to try and find out her details to return it. I came across a card for a post natal depression worker, I was more determined to get the wallet back as I remember when I had had Jett and I was stressed out of my head. Losing my wallet would have been enough to push me over the edge.
    Anyway all is good and we are going to catch up and her a chat. Maybe I can have a hold of Ethan?? (that is Kerri-Anne little boy)
    Sarajo - I canít believe these babies of ours, Jett is doing the same thing as Abby. Maybe it is a growth spurt.??
    Bless your friend and her baby girl, I canít wait till December when my friend Ebony has her bubba. I can
    Wow, good on Abby. Jett still isnít crawling, not sure if he ever will. I is kinda go in a way that he is not mobile as everything is safe still.
    Anyway Bed time for me
    Take care all
    -xxx-
