    Hi Everyone

    Try to get some personals in while Autie is sleeping...

    Nicky, you must be getting excited by now with the big day so close! Where's your honeymoon? Who's having Lachie? I bet you will miss him big time.



    Raels, how's Oliver doing? There's so much illness going around atm. Autie has had a bad cough and runny nose but that's coming good. I've had her on olive leaf extract and a natural expectorant and both seem to work really well. Dan will be away still for Father's Day but I packed him a present bag in his bag when he wasn't looking with just some small stuff and a card from Autie. He opened the presents already but is saving the card until Sunday. What have you got planned?

    Wow Mel, you must have your own parking spot at the hospital by now! LOL Poor Jack! I think you have some exciting years ahead. Hope the ankle wasn't fractured?

    Jan, good news with the sleeping and BF. Please tell me more about the meningoccocal trial. I had to have a giggle over the cereal for dinner - is your man kitchen challenged? LOL I think he's very lucky if you make dinner every night with a barnacle baby! Thanks for dressing Liam - I feel all warm and smiley now when I see his cute face LOL We are coping ok thanks, though Autie has been in bed with me most nights to make things easier. We may even have him home sooner than expected if this rain keeps up.

    Bec, how scary for you both! How is Xavier doing now? I suspect Autie has a touch of asthma too, but they tell me it can't be diagnosed. Just in case you're interested, the doc told me to get a natural expectorant for her cough (Prospan - ivy leaf) and also mentioned that it also works in a similar way to Ventolin on the airways. It's safe to have with any medications and doesn't taste bad - might be worth a look.

    Hi V, cute photo of Avaleigh in her special hat...LOL

    Well, Autie had her allergy appointment this morning and it turns out she has severe peanut allergy (with a few minor allergies on the side as bonus treats) We have two Epi-pens at a government funded discount price of $31, and when they expire in 12m time, I can replace them for a mere $205... For life-saving medications??? And I also had to hand over $360 for the appointment. Someone somewhere is making some serious dollars out of allergy sufferers that's for sure. So that's our news and now I'm off to find some sort of cute medical alert bracelet which will probably cost my other arm and leg.

    Have a loverly day everybody!

    Hey Sacha - good to hear you're surviving ok. how nice that Autie will sleep in your bed, L won't have a bar of co-sleeping, unless it's on the couch, which really doesn't work for me. Bummer about her expensive peanut allergy, $205 for replacement pens is outrageous. DF's makes a very good sous chef & cleaner but I generally don't mind cooking most nights. Cereal for dinner is a rarity these days, it was mostly cos I wasn't having anything so it was just quick & easy.

    The vaccine trial was interesting - we got a letter via medicare asking for volunteers, I ummed & aahed, then called them for more info. They are trialling a vaccine that's already in use for people older than 2, that covers more meningoccal strains, so I decided that I was comfortable with volunteering L's body for the greater good. Plus it had already been trialled in Canada on 1yo's, so I didn't feel like L was being a complete guinea pig. And they did home visits, which was a bonus. The first visit was by a dr & two nurses, they took a blood sample & gave the meningoccal vaccine (which might still have been just the standard one that all 1yos get anyway, we'll never know), we had to take temps & injection site measurements for 7 days, plus record any other medical "events" for 28 days. Then the 2 nurses came back for the 2nd visit, took another blood sample & did the other immunisations plus chicken pox. And that was it.

    Hi to everyone else...

    Hi girls! Just popped in quickly to say hi . Haven't had much time to get on lately so cant even do personals as I need to catch up on all the posts. Hope everyone is well, especially those with little growing bubbas inside!

    Everything is well here - although I do personally believe I am being stalked by the Veronica's song . Everytime I turn on the radio, there it is "I wanna kiss a girl, I wanna kiss a girl..", everytime I turn on the tv, its the Dancing with the Stars ad. It is driving me crazy!!
    Went for breakfast this morning with DH's niece for her birthday and my MIL was being horrible about Tom not walking. I nearly smacked her over the head! She kept saying to him - "now Nanny expect you to be walking by your 14month birthday, so you haven't got many days to go. You need to walk, you are being very lazy". Grrr.. She keeps asking me when I started walking, as DH walked at 11mths and she literally believes baby's follow in their parents footsteps. I walked at 10mths but tell her it was 19mths just to annoy her. Silly woman!

    Well, I am going to spend some time catching up on all the goss while Tom is asleep, so hope everyone has a good weekend! And Happy Fathers Day to all the daddies!!

    I feel like the resident lurking stalker...

    Em - I can't believe you didn't hit your MIL over the head for saying such a silly thing to Tom, well done on the self restraint. Why is it that people seem to think that children are trained monkeys performing tricks to order? I think I'm very lucky that mine isn't in the country in a lot of ways, although my own mother can still do my head in at times just as well .

    Okay, back to lurking for me...

    Hi ladies

    Gee i have missed you all! Unfortunately i have had some bad bleeding and cramping and started having contractions 10 mins apart, so have been on strict bed rest for awhile and had to go stay with my parents as dh is away working and i was on my own with ethan. Very tough, fortunately though bubs has not been distressed and is still tumbling around in there. All seems okay at the moment bleeding has almost stopped, just spotting, and the cramping has settled. Glad to be with ethan in our own house again I just keep telling bub to stay where he is for now.

    Ethan has 2 more teeth, 6 in all, and is teething again. He has a flu too so is not too happy tonight. He is running now and loves to run off with things he shouldnt! His favourite food atm is sultana's.

    Ok, well i should be in bed, Will pop back tomorrow.
    Goodnight.

    Hi Jess - to you, how so very scary for you. So glad you have your parents to help you out and look after Ethan. You mentioned the placenta preavia, I'm guessing that it didn't move up?? I hope things continue to settle down and bub's stays put!! Do they know why it happened?

    Jan - I have been lurking too......where is everyone???

    Em - OH that song is on the radio all the time here too. I think cause they are from Brisbane the radio stations here seem to think they need to play a Veronica's song at least twice an hour Not a fan at all, of any of their music. Grrrr at your MIL, some people just say the silliest things don't they? Love how you tell her you walked at 19 months

    Sacha - Oliver is doing heaps better thanks. Nose has cleared and cough is only in the mornings, and only for a short time. Sorry to hear about Auties allergies and can't believe the cost of everything!! That's shocking.

    Well not much to report here, still no walking, I thought he was getting close but who knows, or cares for that matter!! Well some people do but not his parents. Still giving lots of kisses and cuddles and loving his Dad at the moment, he gets so excited when he comes home, gets to him as fast as he can and putting his arms up for a cuddle. Makes DF grin from ear to ear as Oliver has always been a bit of a "mummies boy" - not that I have a problem with that! He has a bit of an infatuation with DF's beers so DF put one of his stubby coolers around Oliver's cups - he was quite impressed with that. Father's Day we were hoping to take the boat out for the morning but the weather isn't looking so great.

    I am getting a manicure today!! I got given a gift voucher for one last xmas lol and still haven't used it so today I am. Can't wait, love getting my nails done.

    Happy Father's Day to all the dad's and have a great weekend all.

    Good Morning

    Raels- Thanks Hun. Nope no luck with the placenta moving up yet, fingers crossed there's still time for it to happen. Drs aren't sure why it happened or there just not saying. I have had to have anti d shots though. The dr has been checking every few days to make sure my cervix is still closed, thankfully it is and i HOPE the internals stop soon
    Glad oliver is better. How cute re the stubby cooler! Enjoy your manicure today.

    HAPPY FATHERS DAY DADDIES

    Hello everyone!

    Long time since I have posted here!!

    I have kind of been keeping up on everyones news but kind of not as well - so much talkand sooooo long since I last posted . I must say it is a rather daunting thought doing personals so I might just do a general hi and then hopefully pick up from here on in!

    We are all good. Charlotte is walking and has been for about a month so she now charges around after the boys which is cute to see. She has been sleeping really well but I think she is teething again so the last two nights have been a little bit broken but nothing to complain about. I am still breast feeding and expressing at work which is going well - although some days I think my supply is pretty low but I have been drinking heaps of green tea which I think has been helping with supply - and I just crave the taste of it at the moment - weird! Jesse (DS2) is sleeping like a dream now so I feel like I have my head well and truly above water at the moment (i know that can change in an instant)! We ended upo taking Jesse to a sleep dr and although the plan he gave us was nothing different to what we had triend before it just gave us some confidence and within two nights he was sleeping through from 7 until 7 and has been ever since so things are good. Dont get me wrong we still have good and bad days but I am seeing some light iykwim.

    I am still working 5 days a fortnight and LOVE LOVE LOVE going - although I do miss the kids4 when I am there but I love having quiet coffees and shopping at lunch time. Work just gives me some balance with DH away all the time - although we have had a good run and he has been home for a while now but from about the end of September until June next year we will hardly see him - I am trying not to think about it much - bury my head in the sand type attitude.

    I have been running a bit lately and have a 12km run in two weeks which I am looking forward to (in a painful kind of way). Running has become my "me" time and it is easy to do in that I dont have to drive any where and I can be gone and back within a short space of time and I can do it in my lunch break at work if DH isnt around to look after the kids.

    Just a few quick personals

    Congrat Jas and Jess on the pregnancies - (thats how long it has been since I have posted LOL)!

    Best of luck Nicky on the up and coming wedding - cant wait to see some pics.

    Olimoo - enjoy your manicure - divine!

    Em - blah at your MIL. Mil just dont get it do they.

    Sacha - gee thats expensive for life saving medication. Great yo uhave found out so early about her allergy.

    Jan- Love the name change! fantastic job on the breastfeeding!

    Mel - hello and I hope you are doing well. Hope you havent had another trip to the hospital with jack - hospital visits seem to be such a boy thing!! Cheers for tonight as I plan to have a glass of red or two!

    Hello everyone else.

    I will try and keep up - life is just so darn busy!!

    Take care
    Jem

    Congrats Nicky, that's wonderful news, send you pleanty of sticky vibes. Let us know how you go. And only 19 more days until your wedding, that's very exciting. I can't wait to see pics.

    Jess, hope all is well now hun. Fingers crossed things have settled down for good. I remember what it was like being told to rest when I was 31 weeks pregnant and went into preterm labour with Jack, I almost laughed at the doctor. But he also laughed when he saw Charlize (10 months old) at the time. But really, try your best to rest. Take advantage of the doctors orders, he he he he

    Jem, glad to hear all is well at your end. Let us know how the run goes? I'm sure you'll blitz it again though.

    Quick hi to everyone else. I have just finished cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms, so I'm knackered, so off to bed. I plan to be at the gym early in the morning.

    Hope your all well though.

    We are all well, I joined Tony ferg. today, really want to loose these stubborn kg's I put back on after taking those anti-anxitey tablets. I just can't seem to shift it, so I'm going to buckle down and try to have them off in 2 months or earlier.

    Jack is going well, his foot is still bothering him, but we have 2 more weeks for it to heal before he will need to be refered to an othopedic specialist. Fingers crossed he can manage to stay out of trouble between now and then to give it time to heal. please please please........ He is talking really well now as well. He can say, playschool, dorothy, charli, gecko, ballooooonn, pasta, and even I want water. So very different to Charlize who didn't really start proper words until she was nearly 2. Just goes to show you how different they all are Oh and he loves karate, you do the actions and it will send him into a laughing fit, so cute.

    Nighty night

    Mel - wow at all Jack's words, what a clever little man. I've been meaning to ask for a while, but how's Charlize's eczema going these days? Good luck with the Tony Ferguson - is it expensive?

    Nicky -

    Jem - lovely to hear from you again. The running sounds great, I admire anyone who has the discipline to get out & do it regularly. And 12kms is an impressive distance when viewed from the perspective of a "non runner"

    Raels - how was your manicure?

    Jess - how's it going, are you managing to get enough rest & looking after yourself properly?

    How did everyone's father's day go? Ours was pretty low key - DF went to the football in the afternoon, so L & I just hung out together (and this is different how??) Anyway, DF was spoilt, he got a book to read to Liam, a Terry's chocolate orange (one of his fav things) and L's first painting, which was done under duress as L was really not that keen on the idea, but it's still pretty cute. And today, Liam has taken a couple of steps, the first ones that look like he's actually walking, as opposed to just trying to reach for the thing in front of him & having the legs move at the same time. I sort of want him to start walking, but at the same time I don't want him to grow up too fast. Oh for a pause button.

    Hey everyone!

    Just popping my head in to see if everyone is doing alright! THings had been busy here, with working nearly full time and tonight I am going in to coles to have my interview for the night fillers job. Avaleigh is OK, very whingy but its ok cause I dont spend much of the day with her, the IL's have to put up with her whinging!! Gosh, she's just started screaming about something! We've had 6 teeth come out in the past MONTH - so that has been fun NOT!! So we have 12 teeth cut and I can feel some more. I just hope they all come out quick so I can have my happy non-screaming baby back.

    Well gotta go and finish getting ready for work.

    BYE!

    Hi Ladies

    Have been MIA as I have been so busy with uni and have started a new job about a month ago now. Thought it was about time I got back on here to say Hi.

    Was going to attempt personals but after catching up on everything i have missed il just do what I can remember.

    First of all CONGRATS Jas on you BFP, I hope the MS eases for you soon.
    And CONGRATS to you too Nicky, sending sticky vibes your way.
    TOJ- to you. Hope your little bubba stays put and your pregnancy gets a little easier for you.

    Mel Sorry to hear about Jacks many trips to the hospital, hope eveything settles down for you and your family now. I just started the 'celebrity slim' shake diet yesterday, so you will have to keep me posted with how the TF goes for you. Im hoping to lose about 5kgs to get back to my pre pregnacy weight.

    V Wow at Avaleigh's 12 teeth. Tayah has not long got her 4th. She must look so cute with all those teeth.

    Well things are going great for us, Tayah is still eating and sleeping well and is also coming along well with her words now. I am really enjoying my new job, its only about 15 hours a week and I can do the hours anytime between Mon-Fri, which works out great for fitting in uni and arranging for people to look after Tayah. I get paid monthly so I am yet to see a pay, but my first pay is this Friday so I am looking forward to that. I am also getting some casual work at a childcare centre that I worked at pre pregnancy, and that has been fun too.

    Apologies for my lame effort at personals. Hope all mummys and bubs are well.
    Will try and keep up with all the posts now.
