    I'm having a good birthday so far, even though Mark is in Sydney for work and won't be home until 8.30 pm tonight.

    Last night Mark gave me a cuddle and said he was very sorry, but he had forgotten to get me a birthday card. He knew I'd be sad because I love getting sweet cards from him! He's just had a shocking week and forgot about the card. So I was bummed cause I knew I wouldn't be getting a present from him today either. I had ordered some Dermologica the other day as I'd run out so we used the money from our "present budget" for this as it was expensive.

    But anyway when I got up to feed Cooper last night, I found a card in my bag. He must have found a spare one (we usually keep a few on hand). He wrote a lovely message in it.

    Also we have a magnet "to do list" on the fridge and he'd added some new points:

    - Wish Fee Happy Birthday
    - Say "I love you" to her
    - Kiss her
    - Miss her
    - Bring her home Krispy Kreme donuts



    I've just checked it this morning and the first 3 points have been crossed out.

    He had to leave around 4.00 am this morning but he just called me to say he'd landed in Sydney.

    And I've found a few other things around the house. When I went to dress Cooper, I found some things in his drawer. A note saying happy birthday from Cooper, a Cleo magazine (I never buy mags), a Vanilla Lipsmackers (my fave) and some white chocolate raspberry bullets. Yum!

    I've also found another note just now on Cooper's play mat!

    So I'm very happy now. I love little things like that. It's the small things that make you smile!

    Baiza I was glad to finally join in one of your chats yesterday. It was great. Hope Bailee's needles go well today. Good luck.

    Deejoy17 Glad to hear Adrian is doing so well. He is the same size as Cooper, but Cooper is 8 weeks old! And even Cooper is quite big compared to some other babies (I have found).

    Fraser Hope you can catch up on all the posts soon.

    kmh How is Charlotte's cough? Hope you have a great anniversary on Sunday!

    mumof2beauties How's the monster of yours? Turned back into an angel yet?! Yes, Cooper can have days where he won't sleep, but you can tell he's tired as anything!

    Bubseykel Glad to hear you enjoyed the Mother's Group. Were there many people there?

    chantal25 That's great your cracked nipples are beginning to heal. About the needles isn't it meant to be 3 needles? That's what Cooper got.

    Chantal - I'm glad your cracks are starting to heal. I don't think 3 needles is right too. Danielle only had 2.

    Fee - Happy Birthday!!!!!
    Mother's Group there are 9 of us but only 5 of us seem to want to talk about things. It's like the other's are scared. 4 of us are catching up for coffee and a chat on Tuesday at one of the girl's home. We are all the very chatty ones so it should be good.

    I've got a personal training session today at the gym but I'm so not up for it. It only goes for half an hour so I guess I can manage for just that time. We are going to a Fair tomorrow but it's meant to be raining. I hope it doesn't - I'm so looking forward to going.

    I hope everyone has a great weekend.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY FEE!!!!

    What a lovely hubby you have - that sounds so amazing - way better than just getting a present - how very thoughtful of him. Hope you have a great day.

    Well I have resigned myself to the fact I am never going to catch up on all the posts - so can I please have a clean slate and start again from now?

    Stupid roadworks happening outside at teh moment - they are reaplcing all the water pipes in the street, so Charlie has been waking every 15 minutes or so when he hears a loud or scary noise.

    He had his 8 week injections on Weds - I cried my eyes out, he was fine, the Dr and the nurse spent more time consoling me than him - I was so tired we'd been up since 4am and I think I was just a little overwhelmed. We;re ok now - he didn't have any reactions apart form sleeping for 8 hours straight - so that was nice and gave me a chance to get my sanity levels back to 'near to normal' as opposed to 'needs to be dropped off at the nut house'

    sorry for not many personals - there is so much going on and heaps of new people - hello to those I haven't met yet - I promise I will be good and read everyones posts from this day forward, for ever and ever, til death to we part.

    Has anyone heard from Tanya (Tulip)? I couldn't see any posts from her.

    Speak soon, Em.

    Bubseykel - is suppost to be 2 needles but they forgot to mix one and so he had an extra shot.
    I am so stressed and worried - took Zac to the DR and we have been refered to a specialist. he also has to have an ultrasound and had to do a urine sample. (that was fun to collect lol) I knew there was a problem with his belly - i am just glad the dr listened. hopefuly i should know more on monday.

    Well Cooper is being a grizzle guts today and won't settle in his cot. So he's doing quite a few cat naps on me. Also he's feeding a lot. Such much for being a good boy for my birthday!

    Bubseykel Have fun at the fair tomorrow. Hope it doesn't rain.

    Fraser Tulip still posts regularly but in all the other forums. I often visit them too. Such as the General Baby Discussion, Breastfeeding forum and others like that. She's always posting there with various questions!

    chantal25 Cooper had 3 needles. Two in one leg and one in the other. One is the triple one and I'm not sure about the other two.

    we are all doing much better now, thanks to all the people who were thinking of us. Charlotte has her neddles on monday. She has done really well with putting her self to sleep, in the morning she will normally lay there for about 30mins before she falls asleep, normally i wont have to go in there, however at night, i have found that she will have a bit of a cry and then will settle.
    We went to the health centre yesterday and Charlotte now weighs in at 4.45 kilos and she is 54.5 cms long she went through her growth spurt as she was normally putting on 300g for a fornight and she put on 455g this fornight plus she grew 2.5cms, she is nearlly out of her 0000 clothes, some jumpsuits she can still fit into, pants and tops she will fit in to for a while yet, which is great, she is getting lots of wear out of them.

    Fee- you Dh sounds so sweet, Happy Birthday for the other day.

    Biazar- i hope to be able to chat with you on Monday.

    Em- glad to see you are back.

    kel- Hope you enjoy your mothers group on tuesday, i still attend mine from Madison was born, plus i go to another one for young mums, however i am the oldest, and we go to play group, we are always busy. I feel sorry for you getting AF so soon, i can not remember when i got it back with Madison, as i wasn't B/F her. I hope i don't get it back for along time.

    We DTD the other day, it still hurt l little, but not as much as the first time.
    Also i forgot how hormonal you get when you are pregnant, My SIL is 11 weeks, and we were over there the other day, and she cried about everything and then could not stop.

    also we got you pixi photos back, i love them, we got them all, cost us alot of money, but photos are worth it.

    Hi girls

    What a gorgeous day here in Melbourne, I am seeing two girlfriends today, we are taking Dylan for a walk down the shops and then to a cafe for a coffee, for me that is no coffee for Dylan tee hee! I have my last formal mother group tomorrow which is a bit sad but there is a core group of about 6 of us that have vowed to still catch up and next week we will be meeting at a park or cafe. I am glad because I think I need a mothers group to discuss things with and to just get some adult female company. I hope it works out. One of my friends mothers group is still together and the babies are all over two and now there are lots of second babies too. I hope this heppens with mine. Tomorrow we are also taking Dylan to get his two month needles, aaaggghhh I am dreading it. DH will be with us and our MCHN advised me to give him boob afterwards to soothe him, poor little mite he does not know what is coming. I started getting what felt like the flu on Friday night but it has just manifested itself into a little sniffle thank goodness. Oh and at our appointment on Thursday Dylan weighed 4.9kg and had put on 420g in three weeks, he measured 58.5cm having grown 2 cm and his head was 40cm another one cm. And he is doing well except for a bit of a flat patch on his head has anyone elses babies got one of these and what can I do for him? I am doing loads of tummy time but obviously he sleeps on his back and his head always goes to one side which is where the patch is.

    KMH Good luck with Charlottes needles on Monday. We haven't DTD as yer I am too scared cos I am still a bit tender 2 months later.

    Fee HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU FOR THE 15TH Your new photo of Cooper is just gorgeous I will have to update mine too. Your husband sounds so romantic you lucky thing, my DH has never done anything like that.

    Baiza HAPPY WEDDING ANNIVERSARY Hope you have a great day. BTW I didn't get your email as yet with the link for chatting.

    Fraser I am sure I am going to bawl my eyes out too when Dylan gets his needles. Sorry about the roadworks.

    Bubseykel It is good that your mothers group has some chatty people in it. Thanks for the mini pill advice I have not started taking it as yet am still thinking about it do I really want to be on the pill again? Maybe we will use condoms or just have another baby, tee hee!

    Chantal Hope Zac is ok.

    Mumof2beauties Hope Ky is being a good boy now for his mummy!

    Have a great day all.

    Cassie - Danielle doesn't really have a flat patch on the back of her head but she does have a bald ring from where she rubs her head on the ground/matress/pram. The MCHN told me to put her head to the side and then the other side for each sleep so it helps with not having a major flat spot.

    Baiza - Happy Anniversary for yesterday!! Sounds like you had a lovely day.

    Kel - Yay for Charlotte!! Sounds like she's becoming a great sleeper. And yay for DTD becoming better!! I still haven't got our photos done yet. We've been so busy with other things. I must make it a priority now.

    Fee - I hope you enjoyed your birthday. Danielle had a grizzly day on Saturday.

    What's happened to my daughter?? She won't sleep through the night anymore!! Saturday afternoon she got really grizzly. She must've known we were leaving her with Mum while we went to the Eagles game - our first outing without her. Mum said she just grizzled about everything. She only had a bottle and a half when she was with her and fell asleep at 6.30pm which is not like her as I'm usually still sitting with her at 8pm. We picked her up at 9pm and took her home. I thought I would be smart and wake her, change her, feed her and put her in her cradle at 10.30pm with a full belly but for some reason at 3am she was awake and wanted a feed so I did. She got up at 7.30am and had a reasonably normal day. She fed normally and had her few little catnap but at 6.30pm she was trying to sleep again. We sort of kept her up until 8pm with dozing in between waking her up but this morning she wanted a feed at 2am! I want my full night's sleep back!! She woke at 6.30 this morning so that's almost normal. Maybe it's a growing spurt again - I hope so!!

    On a better note - I've lost 1 kilo this week - yay!! That's 3 now - 13 left to go!! If I keep going this way I'll be there my Christmas but I don't think that will happen. I'm going to treat myself to a set of digital scales this week for being so good (real treat hey!!). The Fair was good - no rain!! I found the wine tasting stand - whoops!! Ken let me go on my own for a walk whilst he looked after Danielle at one of the stands (Ken's Uncle was running that stand). I got to show off my little angel to some people who I haven't seen since I was pregnant. I must have looked ten feet tall with pride!

    I better go - heaps to do today - food shopping, gym, vacuuming - fun fun fun!! Have a great day everyone!!

    Hi ladies,

    I need help - I have SIL problems. some of you may remember my brothers wife had a baby 3 weeks before I did - her first as well. We get along quite well, I enjoy her company but she is the sort of person that will only do what she wants to do and manipulates others into doing what she wants so that she doesn't have to ask.

    ok my problem is this. She thinks that we we can spend all day every day together..... My brother is a chef and gets Tues and Weds off - thankfully that means she spends time with him, but the other week days means she is here ALL day. I don't know wht to do.

    We go for long walks which is very good and I enjoy them, but she then stays for up to 6 hours. I made the stupid mistake of giving her a key a while ago (she lives close by and I thought it might be andy to have a spare key offsite) problem is, she now lets herself in using the excuse 'I didn't want to wake Charlie by ringing the bell' - so now I don't even have the option to hide when she drops around because she'll just let herself in.

    I don't know what to do - DH is furious I gave her a key, I can't work up the courage to ask her not to let herself in.

    This morning she rang to see what I was doing and I said I needed to get Charlie settled into his morning routine, as we're having problems with day time sleep and perhaps we could go for a walk in the arvo - she said, no worries, Ava will be up at 10.30 so I'll see you around 11...... was I not clear enough???

    It wouldn't be a problem if we have heaps to talk about - but we just go over the same stuff all the time. Birth this, pregnancy that, Baby this - annoying husband that (bearing in mind her husband is my brother, but that doesn't stop her from *****ing about him)

    aarrrrgggghhhhhh I have to type fast because I know she'll be here soon, and she'll let herself in and I don't want her to read this over my shoulder.......... what a chicken!!!


    what can I do??????????

    HHHHEEEEEELLLLLLPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!

    Em - you poor thing. Honestly - I think the only thing you can do is be blunt with her. Sit her down and tell her everything you just told us. Tell her that you need time for just you and Charlie to get yourselves together, that the key was for emergencies only and it's rude for her just to let herself in every single day. But tell her that you still want to go for your walks together. Sounds like everything you say goes in one ear and out the other so by telling her face to face the message might get through. Maybe try and set a time for your walks for the afternoons and sick to your guns for that time. If she rings you can always make up an excuse and say you are going out but really stay home (I do that with my MIL - hehehe!!). I think you just got to come out with it. My MIL is the most annoying person and usually hurts my feelings so I've decided to come out with whatever I think - especially when it involves me, Ken, Danielle or my weight - as it's my family/me and I'm sure I know my family/me better than she does. I know this may sound harsh but I think it's the only way to get through to people somtimes. Let us know how you go and what you decide to do about it. Hugs to you Em.

    Morning all

    We took Dylan to get his immunisations this morning at the local council and then we left without getting them done, what chickens!!! We decided to get them done by our family doctor even though it will cost us but when we got there at 10.10am (it started at 10) there were so many poeople there and we knew we would be waiting for ages plus there were lots of kids crying already and I think we both couldn't quite cope so we left, what wooses!!! Anyway we are booked in for Wednesday with our GP. (BTW I had already had tears this morning about the immunisations how will I cope with the real thing).

    Fraser You poor thing I am feeling for you majorly. I hate people coming over all the time that would really s**t me. I think you need to perhaps talk to your brother about it first but approach it very carefully. Or you could suggest to your SIL that you meet for a daily walk and tell her where you should walk to and from and then at the end say goodbye to her and don't invite her back to yours, you could even drop her off at her house or something like that and don't give her the opportunity to come over. That's my idea anyway.

    Bubsey I will have to try that with Dylan thanks for the advice.

    Off to Mothers group soon.

    hi all
    well we hve had some really good nights Charlotte slept the longest on sat night 7 hours and then she did 6 hours last night, however she has been power chucking after her morning feeds, as she has been caughing.
    We have needles tonight, i hope she was like Madison, she slept throught them. Also we have your appoiment with the pead today about Charlottes tounge tied.

    Bubs- well done on your weight loss, i have lost 18kg's since having Charlotte, have stoped drinking soft drink is the biggest help. I bet you are happy with the eagles winning on sat.

    Cassie- i don't blame you for waking out, there is so many people at the local council, we are going there tonight, i hope it works out fine for you when Dylan gets his neddles.

    Em- you poor thing, like what bubs said you have to be blunt with her, just tell her that you don't want her coming over so much, maybe once a week.

    Baizar- thats great that everything went well for you yesterday, Tim worked until 4pm and then we went out for dinner. Next year we are going to go away for the night, as Charlotte is too little to be left over night yet, Plus we are going to QLD in 6 weeks for a holiday.

    Hi girls I was going to reply to everyone but Adrian is wanting Mummy, so I better put myMummy hat on again, I`ll be back when I have 5 minutes, in this house it`s very lucky if I have 5 seconds LOL

    Adrian is doing well, he`s sleeping between 5 - 6 hours at night now, then has another sleep of approx 4 hours, by then it`s about 6/7am that`s good in one way but in another I think AF is arriving not happy Jan, why can some women go months without AF yet here I fully breastfeed my babies and still get it within 2 months.

    Hope your all well.

    Take Care

    Hi all

    It was a busy birthday weekend. I feel exhausted!!!

    Question for you who does a dream feed or rollover feed with their bub?

    Cooper often goes 7-9 hours from his last feed of the night until the next. The problem is, his last feed is usually at 5-6 pm. So that means he wakes around 1-2 am. He then usually feeds again around 4-5 am.

    I currently go to bed at 8.30 pm.

    I don't know whether to hang out until the day he goes 12 hours between feeds (I assume this happens eventually?) or to try a rollover feed now. I guess I can just try the rollover feed and see what happens.

    The thing is, I'm not really tired or anything like that but it would be nice to sleep a little longer!

    If I did a rollover feed, what happens with dropping that feed one day? How do you know it's ready to be dropped? Just leave it out one night and then see what happens?

    I might post this in a general forum too.

    Baiza Hope Bailee has been okay after getting his needles.

    kmh Did you buy many Pixi photos? A friend of my is a photographer and she has taken some pics of Cooper. One of them is in my ticker. I'm still waiting on her to send me all the photos on CD. Once she does, I'll put them on my Yahoo website.

    Cassie About the flat patch, do you put Dylan's head on different sides each time you put him to bed? Or if he always moves his head to the preferred side, then be tricky and place him to sleep the other way in his bed. This might work.

    We also got Cooper's needles done at our family GP instead of at a clinic. I didn't want to line up for ages etc. And we wanted our GP to meet Cooper.

    Bubseykel Cooper has a bald ring too. He looks like Friar Tuck! But ages ago he lost heaps of hair from the top of his head (I think when his skin was very dry and flaked off) but now it's growing back.

    Oh and yay about the Eagles! You must be very happy.

    I hope Danielle goes back to her good sleeping soon.

    Fraser Oh Em what a problem you have with your SIL. Can your brother say anything to her? Have you spoken to him?

    Deejoy17 Sounds like Adrian is doing fabulously.

    Fee - I think it's one for the general forum. I have no idea!!

    Dee - good to hear Adrian is going great guns!! One of my friends as Mother's Group is exclusively BF her boy and she got her AF at 7 weeks. I thought 10 weeks was bad without BF. I guess everyone is different. I hope you don't get your AF just yet.

    Kel - yay for Charlotte!! You must be so happy!! Danielle had a power spew at 5am this morning. It went all over my shoulder, all over the recliner - luckily it's leather and I just wiped it up. Don't you just love them!! I hope her needles went OK.

    Cassie - I was told my a few of the mother's at Mother's Group that they took their little ones for their needles at their doctors that don't Bulk Bill but because it's for immunisations that the doctor Bulk Billed them. You might just want to check that out to save yourselves some money.

    I've woken up with massive heartburn this morning. I wonder what caused that. I wish it would go away. I was looking forward to Aqua Aerobics today but I'm in too much pain.
    Danielle's being really weird again. She's sleeping more during the day, wanting to go to sleep at 6.30pm, waking up at all hours for a feed (this morning it was 5am - lately it has been 2-3am then 7am), very grizzly during and after feeding, mega chucks but during the morning she's really happy and enjoys playing. She seems to be taking the same amount of formula - sometimes more and sometimes less. Firstly I thought it was the teats in the bottles as they are for a 1 month old and she's almost 3 so I bought new ones but that hasn't helped. Now I'm thinking maybe I'm over-stimulating her. I was reading in a book last night they can get very grumpy if you over-stimulate them. Or maybe it's a growth spurt. Do they have one at 10weeks again? I know she was horrible with her last spurt at 5ish weeks. I want my angel back!!

    Hopefully I feel OK to see the girls from Mother's Group this afternoon. Have a great day everyone.
