    Hi girls!!

    Not much to report. Olivia all good.

    had a Lovely BBQ dinner with the inlaws tonight. Ethan has a friend sleeping over. Life is good.. in some parts.. Can't pinpoint it.. Just feeling a little blah over some things. Even though I feel happy 90% of the time and I honestly do. I wonder when I feel low if I don't have a little dose of PND, I know I haven't had more then 4 hours straight sleep in over 4 months. Well once or twice I got 6 hours. So I don't know if I am just exhausted and don't realise it till I have a night like last night. Olivia was super happy but I got 2 hours sleep then she woke for 2 hours and then we slept till 7 (3am to 7am) and I don't sleep during the day.

    Sorry for the ramble. Way to many thoughts running around my head. and I have to say Olivia is just awesome now. Doesn't cry as much as she used to. We still have some days but I feel more able to cope with it..

    I will shut up now lol..

    night Girls

    Nic - ikwym about the lack of sleep and i think that was what helped me give in to FF. Lack of sleep sent me insane and i doubt that you have PND just sleep deprivation which is horrid. and its even worse when we cant have a cat nap during the day. Im glad to hear that Olivia isnt crying as much that certainly helps.

    Haroula - Great to hear Chrissie is being a good girl again fingers crossed for you

    Buzzie - Vicky does that all the time and it is really gross. hope today is cooler for you

    We are still plodding along and still going with relactating - milk has increased a bit more today and she is having less formula was a little worried last night as she had chomped at me and a little crack had started but after a long break over night *she slept for 9hrs - that is so not going to last* seems to have disappeared. Alex is being a Terrible 2 but DP is home for the weekend so he can deal with it.

    Have a great weekend Ladies

    Nic: I had pnd with the other two girls. it didnt help that i wasnt sleeping and my partner wasnt helping me. he just thought that i didnt love them. until the CHN told him that it wasnt just me, that there was something wrong.

    but this time round, he is a fantastic help with all the kids. i'm sleeping alot better, although i still feel crappy some days.
    and at the moment, i feel fantastic and that my life is now complete.

    i havent had any depression with this bub yet, and i'm hoping that it keeps going like that. (thats why he's been helping so that it doesnt happen).

    but i'm sure that being the great loving mum that you are, you cant help but feel a little overwhelmed with 4 kids and a hubby that works nights.

    but we are all here if you do need to talk about stuff and need a little help.

    hugs for you and take care

    Thanks girls. I don't think it is pnd either but I tell ya yesterday it felt like it. I had it with Ethan but I didn't realise it till he was older..

    Morgan: you are doing a great job at relactating.. Well done! [/SIZE]

    Michelle: I have the opposite this time round. I am finding dh isn't that much of a help and I am always asking him to do this or that. I know he is great with the housework and cooking ect but sometimes I wish he would change Olivias nappy or bath the kids without me saying its bth time. and its no point waiting for him to just do it otherwise it would be 7 at night and still wouldn't be done kwim?


    Now for a cool thing.... Olivia gave us her first proper laugh today. A real throw your head back chuckle. She was having a shower with daddy and when I took her out she laughed.. I got it on video this afternoon at the park though but no where as good as this mornings laugh!!

    Morning!! Boy I am tired. I don't know why I can't sleep well at night.. Olivia woke at midnight.. Why can't she sleep through?? I know all babies are different but I want some sleep dammit

    She woke up grumpy this morning. Was grumpy till she napped then has woken grumpy from her nap as well..

    I am getting to the point that I might start expressing and getting Simon to do the occassional night feed. I would prbably still wake up but I can fall asleep agan easily if need be

    Just had to come in with a quick brag.

    Abbey can roll over !! Yesterday she was laying on the floor and she got onto her side. She's been doing that for a while now. I was watching and said to DP look, she's going to roll over so soon, and she did. LOL. She did it again last night and again this morning.

    Let the motor skills begin hey.

    I put a new pic of Abbey in my gallery, she is wearing her new funky knitted capri's that BG bought for her.

    Hope everyone is having a great Sunday

    Hi all, Sorry I have been so AWOL but Liam has quite bad reflux and I am to the point to where literally can not put him down during the day. Managed to get a Paed appointment for tomorrow as my GP wont prescribe Losec without a Paed Review. We arent really managing to get out much because Liam wont sleep in the car or the pram or anywhere except our arms, I am waiting on a HAB and crossing my fingers the Losec will work.

    Lauren- Ash is only 500gm more than Liam, it must be something about that DOB.

    Xtml- I love my twin pram too for getting around with both my kiddies, makes getting out for a walk and a quick trip to the shops doable.

    Teena- Sorry to hear you are in so much pain, i hope they find out what is going on really soon.

    Nic- Liam is just starting to laugh too, and it just melts my heart he is so adorable when he opens his mouth and lets out a chuckle.

    Trish- Liam is rolling over from his tummy to his back, he did it quite early and I thought it was just a fluke but he does it nearly everytime you give him tummy time now. I cant belive how quickly they stop being those tiny newborns.


    A big hello to everyone else, I had better go my battery on my computer is just about to die. I will attempt to get in here a bit more regularly and keep up with everyones news.

    Trish - Loved the pants and way to go Abbey clever girl

    Ali - GL at the paed. Hope Liam gets better soon for you.

    Nic - We got one of those laughs yesterday and yep melted mummy your pics are adorable as always. Hope you got some sleep over the weekend.

    haroula - How is Chrissie going - still good i hope.

    We have the LC coming this arvo to assist with relactating and i have started taking Blessed Thistle ($25 for 100 tablets - ouch) as well as the Ackivate drinks. I just hope that it all works as with buying formula, tablets & LC we are already out of pocket $150 this week.

    hi ladies!

    hope you are all well!

    cute pics everyone!! geez all bubs are just so darn cute!!

    Yesterday was our anniversary and because it was 39oC outside until really late we weren't going to take Chrissie out in that weather, but we had a quick change at about 6.30pm and it went down to high 20's so it was great! We went out to dinner! was really nice and Chrissie was an angel, slept the whole time! in and out of the car and when we got home she was half asleep while i changed her and fed her and she went right down to sleep! i think she may be going through a growth spurt as yesterday she had a total of 660ml and slept MOST of the day! so not like her! hehehe

    The Nestle NAN Gold is SOOOO agreeing with her... and that pimply rash she had all over her head is gone too! must have beens something in the Karicare that didn't sit right! Definitely seems to be back to her usual self!!

    morgan - good luck with your relactation!! hope the LC can help you out!

    Trish/Ali - on the rolling over!! Chrissie is starting to roll to her side now when she's on her back!! so shouldn't be too long!

    teena - hope that someone can sort out what's going on! Pain is horrible! especially if you don't know what it is to treat it!!

    nic - hope you are feeling better!

    going to be another scorcher here today, so nothing much planned... just inside with the aircon! poor Chrissie, she so loves to be out and about!

    Hope everyone else is doing well!

    Thanks Louise, How are the girls going ?

    Ali, sorry to hear poor Liam is still having reflux issues. I was going to ask if you had a hug a bub to put him in. Atleast that keeps him upright. Abbey rolls the other way, back to belly. Although yesterday she rolled right over, back to belly then continued on to get onto her back again. Hope the paed has some answers for you.

    Morgan, good on you for giving relactation a go. I hope if goes fantastic for you.

    Thanks Nic, how are the kiddies going ? How is Ethan going at school ? Abbey is starting to do those laughs too. But you have to work for it. Huge hugs for you too hun

    Haroula, Happy anniversary hun. Good to hear that the new formula is working for Chrissie.

    We are still having issues here with Brandon. He is running away on a weekly basis now. Hasn't been to school in weeks. I have counsellors seeing him, the truancy officer came out on Friday, you name it. Driving me bloody mad.

    Abbey is going good. Sleeping very little during the day, but not too bad of a night, once you get her down that is. Takes me over an hour to settle her in the evening.
