    lol @ Brooke's comment about your chatting Kate. My little sister was a late talker too, apparently she didn't need to talk as her 4 older siblings were doing it all for her. I wouldn't worry at all Kate. Al isn't saying terribly much either as yet. Certainly lots of babble though.

    Maya is advanced! Fancy saying 'agina' ! pmsl...not usually something said during the course of my day too often. I love the photos of her on your webpage, and the knicker photo in your ticker is sooo cute. She's a little love. Maybe the bacteria they are sawbbing for is the streptococcal bacteria. The say it is found in the back of about 20% of healthy baby's noses or throats. Usually it isn't a prob, but it can cause middle ear infections if it moves into the ear, or like in the case of Al, he ended up with it in his lungs where it can get quite nasty. They are quite a virulent bacteria, so maybe that's why they are saying she would need to be on a special penicillin if she had this infection, rather than a normal antibiotic. I hope you get the proper doctor next time and that he/she gives you the answers you need.

    Bel - glad to hear the acupuncture is working well. Al loves those cars you pull back and let go of too. Great Coby's teeth have come through. Al has the same ones coming, one of the 2 at the back is through the other is still trying and one of the front bottom ones is finally making an appearance. So we're not far behind you.

    Hi to everyone else. I've got a Danish exam tomorrow. Its a state level one, which will give me an official govt recognition of my level of Danish - which is apparently at high school level. Since it looks like we're not coming to Australia in Jan, I have enrolled into the university level exam, which is held in May next year. I will be able to do the three month course jan-march before having the baby, so it should keep my Danish up and keep me busy and my mind on other things in those last months of pregnancy.
    On the house-front. We have just began a new wave of applications for various places, so we're hopeful something will show up this round. fingers crossed:eek:

    Oh poor you Kate. I know how you must feel. Al has been a screamer from the start. Really uncontrollable at times. I cannot count the number of times I walked around the streets here with a screaming bundle in the pram. It is quite humiliating, as I felt like people would think I'm a bad mum. The neighbours here, to this day, must think I am killing him, he really has developed quite a loud and high scream. I think DH and I have permanent hearing damage pmsl.
    But YOU know that you are doing everything you can to help Rylee. Try not worry about what other people may or may not be thinking. They have their own lives and will get on with it and forget about it - its not their life after all.
    I think when Al was about 8 weeks, we finally gave in and introduced the dummy. It made a difference. Also I started having a dark beer of a night to help my supply. Al used to really like being carried lying on his tummy - his head would be towards the crook of my elbow and his belly resting on my hand - legs flopping.
    Kate - I also used ear plugs sometimes, as it would really be too much to hear screaming like that all day. It is a wise investment and may save your sanity. It may sound harsh to those of you who haven't had a baby that screams a lot. But trust me the best way you can comfort them is to hold them and its rather difficult to do that when they are up on the highest pitch...
    Thinking of you Kate ((hugs))

    Kate, dont let other people make you feel bad, babies cry, even ones without an upset tummy. I will be honest I never get the kids vacc done with the shire. my gp does it. Its still free, but can be done in a little more privacy and at a time convenient to you ( I always ring before I leave home to make sure there isnt a waiting time, so no sitting in the waiting room with a screaming bubs) Dion still screams down safeways and everyone comment ( due for a sleep, hungry, not well.......) I just smile and agree, though usually its nothing more than temper in my little mans case. DO NOT LET THEM GET YOU DOWN ( any of "them")
    YOU ARE A FABULOUS MUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Kate, Dion is the king of the grunters, he doesnt talk to us at all, really LOL

    Brooke, OMG at the poo, how hillarious ( just wait til TT _ it happens a bit hehe)
    Glad that the gastro is going away, remember stay off the dairy for a week.

    Deb, LOL at the dummy, Dions is in his mouth sooo much, we call it the silencer LOL
    well done on the study, will you study through every pg you have LOL?????

    Dunno if I mentioned it, but Rianna loves Dora the explorer, and has a soft Dora doll. Dion kept stealing it, and hiding from her, cuddling it. So I bought him one of his own, he barely lets it go, he cuddles it and puts it in his trucks to give it rides, so cute.

    Love to everyone else, gotta go and finish up my work so I can hopefully go home and get a little bit of zzzzzzzzzzzz

    Kate you are not only an amazing mum, you are a wonderful caring friend. There people do not know you, nor all that you have been through with Ry's reflux. You do all you can, and so does your DH. You are a fabulous Mum. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. And Pffft! to them and their looks. **hugs**

    Brooke.. LOL @ Maya and her poo!

    Vanita.. how cute is Dion and his Dora. I'm so glad he has one of his own and doesn't have to steal Rianna's.

    Hi to everyone else... gotta get ready for school... I so shouldn't be on here before school drop off! LOL

    will catch up later.

    Kate, I mean everything I said. **hugs**

    Hi everyone!

    Just a quickie, hope you're all well.
    My test was terrible yesterday, it was an oral thing and I got nervous and got lost for words. The subject they picked out for me to talk about (on the spot) was sport - there were pictures of weight lifters and mountain climbers and I don't even know what they call them in Danish. It was so hard and so stupid!!! I got 8/13 which is a pass but it really is disappointing. When I did the internal exam 3 months ago I got 9/13 so its pretty bad that my Danish has gotten worse in that time. Oh well, just unnecessary pressure I put on my myself, I shouldn't worry about the stupid marks! phew! sorry for the vent. Feel better now.
    Oh dropped Al at school today and he was crying as I left, so I got pretty upset about that. I don't want him to be sad to go there...he usually loves it. Poor little love, I don't want him to feel abandoned at all. Its a difficult situation. I called them after a half hour and they said he was fine a couple of minutes later and he is having fun. But still!!!!!
    We may have found an apartment.....will know more by sunday. Please please please.

    Hi All

    Well the ILs are gone now so I'll be able to be around a bit more now

    Kate- Pffffffffft to all those a$$holes staring at you, gee don't they know that babies cry? And hello you were at a doctors office, god they need to get a life, ba$tards. So don't even worry your pretty little head about them, they're not worth the trouble

    Thanks for asking Kate. I'm pretty down in the dumps, lots of hysterical crying over the weekend over small things. So I trust its pregnancy hormones going amok. Some of the other girls in my belly buddies group are experiencing the same thing, so it must be normal. Doesn't help being far from home at xmas..this time last year we were living it up on the beach in sydney...oh wellll :frown:
    Yes the riots were in our neighbourhood...not far from our place!

    Kate- Thanks for the welcome back

    Deb- Oh no! You poor thing. Pregnancy hormones suck don't they? Sorry you won't be home for Chrissy. We'll all be thinking of you though. Sending you lovely, warm and happy christmas wishes

    Thanks for the warm Xmas wishes, Bec. The sun has come out now, so everything seems a lot better here. Hugs and warm wishes to you and Kate too.

    Hi Lisa! Welcome to Belly Belly. Just a check on the ticker calc - I think it is a month short - the babies are approaching 18 months old or am I losing it?

    Hi girls. Welcome Lisa - just jump right in and chat away. Don't feel shy. We've all been together since our bubs were born, so if we talk about things you don't know about, just ask.

    Well, I went for the dreaded ultrasound last Thursday and things are going well. The foetus is measuring a week behind my dates (LMP was 24th Oct so that would have made me 7w2d, but u/s measured at 6w2d). Both the sonogrpaher and my specialist said it would be because of the clomid I was taking as it increases the O time. This makes sense now why I had low bHCG levels at what i thought was 2 weeks. The levels, in hindsite, are probably very high.

    And there is only one in there which I am very pleased about!!

    I have another u/s towards the end of Jan when i will be 12 weeks, and in the meantime I am on the oestrogen, progesterone and mini aspirin. I have that maternal blood test at 10 weeks also coming up.

    So all things are looking good so far. Fingers crossed for the next scan.

    Welcome Lisa

    Hay- Woooohoooo so glad to hear that things are going so well I truly hope they continue that way And hooray that there's only 1, although I'm sure you'd manage fine with 2

    Brooke- We are both fine thanks, although things are getting busier leading up to Chrissy. Jonah's getting bigger and bigger every day, and he's going great with his bed, no probs thus far. Hooray for a new a/c, you sure do need one over there. I hope you have a great time with your mum and her partner, and thoroughly enjoy your Chrissy with them. We've bought Jonah a house thingy that has a slide on it (he loves slides), a little guitar that makes a guitar noise when you touch the strings and a Bob the Builder Flip phone. They are his major pressies and he will get lots of little things in his Santa stocking. What have you guys got Maya?

    Brooke- I love wooden toys, Jonah has some here and some at my mum's place, they're great aren't they? Jonah's gifts are on layby and will be picked up on Thursday, I will be getting Ben's that same day and he's getting mine on Saturday (we're cutting it a bit fine this year but he just got a bonus from work so we were waiting for that). We've got everyone else's though which is good seeing as most of them had to go back to Sydney with the ILs.

    Hi everyone. Sorry I've been MIA a bit. I have to confess I've been hanging out in another thread. I've decided to move to cloth nappies and have been picking the girls in the cloth nappies thread's brains for the last couple of weeks. I think they are sick of me now! LOL I'll try to catch up on everyone's news. DH is at his work christmas dinner tonight. It was too hard for me to juggle the kids and other activities that we had on tonight as well as get 1 hour across town. Anyway, it means i have to pc!

    Kate, I was more than happy to help you out with Kelsey's tonka truck. I hope you both get a lot of pleasure playing with it. And it really wasn't a bother taking it to your Mum's. It was lovely to see her again. She's so gorgeous. I'm just sad she's moved away, although it's a great thing for you. It was pretty awesome seeing your childhood home. Blake made himself right at home and loved playing with the toys, and also banging the knocker as we left. I hope the Paed goes well for Rylee tomorrow.

    Deb, sorry to hear you've had a bit of a miserable time. Pg hormones can be a bugger, particularly at this time of year. I hope they sort themselves out, and that you can embrace a 'white' Christmas (if it snows!) BTW, did you get the house/place you were talking about? I was keeping my fingers crossed but can't see any news. I so hope you did. Bummer about your exam, but don't sweat it. You've got so much going on with your gorgeous son Al, your bump, trying to find a new place to live and everthing else going on. I'm sure you'll bounce back. And really, who talks about mountain climbers in day to day life!???

    Brooke, Woo Hoo for your a/c going in. It makes such a difference, doesnt it? Woo hoo also that your Mum arrives tonight. I bet you can't wait. It will make for such a great Christmas, particularly with Maya being that bit older. Well done for getting most of your Chrissy shopping done in one afternoon. I've been picking up stuff for weeks/months - you should see our tree, there's about 40 pressies under it, and that doesn't include the pressie from us or santa for the kids! One drawback of having a big family!

    Vanita, how are you going honey? Have the big girls finished school yet? Viv finishes tomorrow? How's Dion's Dora going? Still loving her? I think he's so cute. How's DH post-fires? Has he gone back to do some more fighting?

    Bec, I hope you had a good time with your IL's. I bet it's nice to have you home back though. Visitors/guests are great, but it's great when they go, isn't it? How did Jonah cope with them? I bet he took it all in his stride the gorgeous boy he is! Any news from Telstra yet, or shouldnt' I have asked?

    Hiya Hayseed. Glad to hear your u/s went well. How are you coping with the 1st tri exhausion? I bet you've been busy too with you DH fighting fires as well. Has he been off again doing it? My thoughts are with both you and Vanita whilst your menfolk are away. xx How's gorgeous Thomas? I bet he's getting so big and so clever now.

    Hi Gemma. It was great seeing you and your family the other day. Thank you so much for coming and dropping the Tupperware over. It's now sitting nicely under my Christmas tree, and I promise I'll act surprised on Christmas day. How did you latest market go? Enjoy your catch up day tomorrow with the other girls down your way (are you still going?) and enjoy your time off work. And if I may ask, what's next on your TTC journey? I'm hoping things go smoothly for you.

    Hi Lisa, welcome to our little crew. It's a bit sad that all of our babies are no longer babies, but I'm sure Brooke is growing up into a gorgeous and capable little girl. Good luck with TTC#2

    Hi to Bel and Heather (is the m/s still gone? ) and I hope everyone is set for a wonderful Christmas.

    Quickly to answer you question Brooke. Blake is getting a cubby, lots of FP Little People, sand pit stuff for his new sandpit DH has built. Ummm, thats all I can think of for now, but I know there's more... ooh, 2 Megablocks trucks - big ones a bit like Tonka trucks but not metal, all plastic with blocks inside. Books, a puzzle. Ummm. brain wont work any more.

    take care all.
    xx
