    Thanks guys.

    Nic - They think it was a bug (streptococcus A) that was quite happily and safely living in my body that was disturbed by the c/s and moved to an area where it couldn't live happily/safely and reacted badly. However no-one seems really sure how it happened. All the docs (I had about 5 specialists on my case) tell me I was just extremely unlucky to get it but extremely lucky to survive it.

    Rory - I would love a visitor, although I will turn you down on the housework I can't stand the thought of relying on other people. I am having a hard enough time letting mum and MIL do stuff for me.



    Little Miss O has decided in the last day or so that she does not like to sleep in a room on her own. She grizzles and cries when put in the bassinet if DH and I are not in there too. So at the moment she is sleeping soundly in the bouncer at my feet in the lounge room, and has been for about 3 hours. I think she got used to there constantly being people and noise around during the hospital stay.

    Alicia - Sofia is happiest asleep with noise/people about as well and we have been home for over a month.

    with Mirani, noise isnt a problem, we vacuum around her and she doesnt even flinch. its the same when the girls are fighting or playing near her.
    the problem at the moment is wind. as a baby i had a dairy allergy and couldnt handle normal formula and had to have soy & goats, i'm going to try Mirani on a soy to see if it helps.

    Alicia: I hope you recover well from this. It sure was unlucky really but thankful you both came through this ok. I don;t know if you can lok at it that way yet though...

    Olivia sleeps in the loungerom during the day and in her room(our room) at night and that has always worked for us...

    Missy or aka bubby girl as we are calling her now is starting to make real proper smiles. so adorable!

    Last night I stayed up way to late. Beats me what I was thinking certainly paid for it today but yet again here it is after 11 and I am just heading to bed now

    night night all.. sleep vibes for everyone..

    funny how only a few short weeks/days ago we were sending out labour vibes

    Morning all.

    You are right Nic, looking on the bright side is a little difficult at the moment although I am extremely happy that Olivia is healthy and and happy (most of the time) I am around to look after her.
    I am the same about the sleep. I think it is that I need a little bit of winding down time after Olivia is sleeping so by the time I go to bed it is getting late.

    I just uploaded a photo of Miss O and her big blue eyes to my gallery. Also uploaded one of her and her daddy but doesn't seem to have worked :-(

    Oh for 4 straight hours at night, Sofia has become a bit of a day sleeper, and being on holidays away (at inlaws atm) it is hard to sleep when she does.

    Hi girls, just a quicky from me. I was discharged finally this afternoon from hospital. And yes I am totally over them. After having ahomebirth as I didn't want to go to hosp (among other reasons) I end up in there twice after Abbeys birth, once for her and now for me. I have had this cold since Abbey was born, pretty much. It got worse when she was in special care and over the weeks I just could not shake it. Normally my asthma is only very mild. I have never been hospitalised with it before. On Boxing Day evening I had an attack and even after taking the nebuliser could not breathe. Mum rushed me to the hosp where only my oxygen sats were done and I was rushed through as a catergory 2. I waited for nothing. Spent the night in that hosp and was transferred on Thursday to a bigger hosp for more treatment. I seriously thought I'd be in for 4 hours observation and that would be it. Apparently I was sicker than I thought. The chest infection really played havoc with my asthma. Each day I was asking to go home and each day was told just one more day. I am still coughing like a 60 year old smoker but hoping that it breaks up the crap on my chest.

    I haven't really caught up on the goings on in the last 4 days that I have missed on here, but hope that everyone is going well and all bubbies are growing nicely.

    Abbey was somewhat unsettled in hosp, I went from a baby that I could feed and just put to bed in her bassinette to one that has to be cuddled to sleep again !! Even though I had a private room I was right near the staff doors where the kitchen staff and nurses would bang in and out of at all hours. It would literally shake my room. Abbey is sporting that lovely hormone rash on her cheeks that we really aren't sure if its from me or all the damn meds I am on. I'm also on steroids, told DP that Abbey was going to come home with boobs. She has been feeding like nothing else so I wonder if it has anything to do with them, or if it will cause a growth spurt as such ??

    Thank you BG for leting the girls know. It's much appreciated.
    Good to see you girls can still talk without me being in here

    Welcome back Trish.. Glad you are home. hope you start feeling heaps better soon.

    shell: Caitlin is gorgeous. such a cute dress. her expression looks like she is saying.. mum not another photo LOL

    Well tonight has been fairly cra**y. Olivia has screamed or fed non stop since 6. she has fed almost 2 hourly all day. She is now in bed and actually sleeping soundly. I have a feeling she was over tired today as she didn't have any decent sleep. I hope she sleeps at least 4 hours now and has a good night. M poor nipples are feeling very beaten. I was tempted to resort to a dummy tonight but the only one I have in the house was from when we tried with Jacob and I don't even think it is a newborn one. Might buy one to store in the fridge...

    Hi to Sue and Ali

    Ollie has been unsettled in the heat but he is now swaddled under a cooler vent - now have to make sure he doesn't get too cold. He put on 600 g in 2 weeks which is prominising...

    Rory: Its getting harder and harder not to give in but I don't want to be like it was with ethan and still trying over 2 yrs later to get rid of it.. Isaac only had one for a couple months and jacob didn't want one at all and it made life so easy so I think if we can get through these early weeks we should be right....

    but by golly lol those pink dummies are so adorable ha ha ha..

    Hi Everyone,

    Just checking in and wishing everyone a very happy New Year.

    Hi Sue and Ali - Congrates on thearrival of your December bubs.

    Trish - So glad you are home. You have been through so much since Abbey was born. I hope you get a rest.

    Alicia - Wow you went through a so much...I really hope you recover quickly. Sounds like you are doing a great job.

    I have had a huge week, with kids and constantly having to go to family functions etc. i am so over socialising. so much so I have pulled the pin on going out tonight. Loren doesn't sleep much over night, and she is feeding 2 hourly, sometimes hourly around the clock. In the last few days I have comp fed just to fill her up and get her to sleep for 3 hours straight and to give my boobs a break. By 9pm ever night Loren is literally fifgting with my boobs for more milk, but they are jus so empty. She is also ver windy, but i think this may be improving.

    Nic - I gave Loren a dummy in hospital!!! I did not want to but it was/is the only peace I get. Loren is a very sucky bub. Well done for holding off.

    i wish I could post a pic of Loren but my pics are still not loading
