    wow rose, thats all a bit full on isn't it. I hope that you go OK with your fasting test. I had to do one with Yasin because just before I had the drink I had a chocolate milk and a sweet roll from the bakery #-o
    Why do they think that your placenta might be grown into your uterus? Is it because of your past history or was there something else? Don't answer if I'm being too nosey. I really hope that its ok because a hyst sounds quite scary

    Oh Rose, you poor thing. I can totally understand why you're feeling worried and concerned. I hope the next GTT comes back ok - I've heard that it's rather common for people to have a high reading with the first one. That's a bit scary about the placenta too.....I hope you get some reassuring answers.

    Oh Rose- i really hope everything is ok for you

    Hello everyone else!!

    I have a q for you all- does anyone have their little ones in big beds yet? Ryley is almost climbing out of his cot ](*,)

    So we are considering toilet training and big bed early- he is such a clever cookie.

    I hope you are all doing really well.
    I love our new forum!!

    Hi girls,

    Sorry to have just 'let it all out'. I just needed to talk.

    Pietta, wow clever Ryley. If he is trying to climb out I would be looking at big bed. Have fun. Can your cot side be taken off to transition the move cause this maight be helpful. As for potty training, if he is ready go for it. DS now 3 was toilet trained by 20 mths just before dd came along. Amelia has done 3 wees in the potty in the last week but I don't think she really knows what she is doing though. She gets the potty out before bath all by herself and wants to sit so I am sure the understanding will come soon enough.

    Thanks Melinda, dachlostar, Pietta for your concern. With the placenta, the picked up from the ultrasound that the margin of the placenta and uterus is blured so it could be possable that it is just stuck or actually grown as part of the uterus. They wont really know until I have delivered and in third stage. The u/s lady said she is making notes of these things now and can pick them up whereas for the previous pg it might have been the same but she did not pick it up. It is probably caused by the placenta being in the same spot as the 1st pg and had to have manual removal. Therefore scaring.

    Im not doing too bad otherwise. Just trying to keep my mind busy. Thanks again girls.

    hi girls

    just a quickie i better get to bed

    rose - you are having a bit of a hard time of it, i hope everything goes well. i will be thinking of you.

    pietta - ryley is a clever chookie isn't he, as rose said best to get started if he is trying to get out of the cot, i was lucky with ds he stayed in his cot until he was nearly 3 1/2 yrs old - he loved it and when he went into a bed he actually used to call out in the morning for me to get him - didn't realise he could actually escape rofl. however dd went into a bed at 19mths old and yup she used to come in and out allllllllll night . the best thing i could suggest would be to maybe make sure that the cot rail is down and put a mattress on the floor so if he does try and get out he won't hurt himself in the process. good luck. oh and good luck on the tt - you are a braver woman than i am lol, i just hate it when they are first tt and you go out shopping or wherever and no matter how many times they go to the toilet before you leave home - they need to check out EVERY single toilet wherever you are. many a times i have been 1/2 way through grocery shopping and had to leave a trolley not to mention being in a store and got a few things to buy but still want to look around but nope have to leave it all there and come back to it lol. but it is good when they are done, just a lot of hard work at the beginning but am sure ryley will do really well. remember if it is stressing either you or ryley out, just pop nappies back on him and try again in a few months or weeks.

    i better go to bed will do more personals tommorrow night when dh is on nightshift - HOORAY he is back to work after holidays, don't get me wrong i love having him around but really 2 wks can be enough we all need to get back into some sort of routine, especially as ds is starting school this year - we need to start getting up earlier than 9 o'clock lol.

    Don’t know how long I’ll have, but I’ll try to write as many personals as I can before Charlie decides that he no longer wants to play quietly with his toys!

    Firstly, hello to all the people who I haven’t met before. I know Mooshie, Rose, Pee, bon, dach, and a few others, but I see some names here that I haven’t seen before. So hi!

    LOL at the swearing thing. I am usually pretty good these days unless I hurt myself, but when I do the ‘f’ word gets used a lot! Luckily, Charlie isn’t saying much yet, but I really need to stop. I’m going to be a primary school music teacher too, so I need to stop before then! Otherwise I might get fired. Oops.

    Mooshie – thinking of you and sending baby hugs with regards to ttc. I know how much it sucks when the same thing keeps happening month after month. I don’t know if it helps, but the first month I started to “relax” about the whole thing was the month I got pg. I really hope it happens for you soon. Glad to see that Miss Lani is thriving. I hope I get to meet her one day!

    Rose – wow, all that stuff sounds scary. I hope that everything goes well for you. Was the scan a regular one of a 4d one? I’ve heard they can pick up heaps with the 4d, but I haven’t had one myself. I’m glad there are another couple of pg mums on here – we can all whinge… I mean, go through the wonderful experience that is pregnancy, together. J

    Pietta – what a clever cheeky boy Ryley is climbing out of his cot! When you’re out, does he sleep in a portacot or on a mattress? We’re thinking of putting Charlie in a bed soon, only because we want to use the cot for Bob when he arrives. DH is making him a car bed. I’ve heard that a good thing to do is use the bed for daytime, cot for night until they get used to it, and then take the cot away and just use the bed when they’re ready. We’re aiming to have the bed finished and start doing this by the end of March to give us a good couple of months to work it all out. What are your plans with Ryley?

    Sorry for anyone I missed, but I fear that Master Charles has just about had enough of this room! BTW, we found out that we're having another boy! Very exciting, but now all the arguements about names start! We had a quick look last night and the only ones we could agree on (but neither of us were completly over the moon about) were Elliot, Alexander, William (Billy for short, although DH wants to call him Bill, but I reckon that's an old man's name!), Edward (Eddy) and something else I can't remember. This is hard! Anyway, gotta go, Charlie is getting into the drawers! Hope you're all well.

    Hi everyone,

    I wont even try to go into personals as I am still getting to know most of you and am a bit lost with whose who!

    Aidan started walking today, he took about 10 steps to DH and back to me over and over again. Having said that, I cant imagine him getting up and walking without our 'gentle pressure' as he gets around just fine crawling.

    It is humid in Melb tonight so I can still hear him singing in the monitor (Aidan, not DH!), not sleeping due to the heat. Let's hope he goes to sleep soon, I need rest....

    Had my first day on the job as a swimming teacher today, what a challenge! I have discovered that the little ones are so much harder than the big ones, Day 2 tomorrow and I am still sh*tting myself!

    Seeings as we are discussing TTC in this forum... I think I have decided to wait just a little bit longer (maybe in 3-6months we will start trying?). It feels wierd that I keep putting it off as I expected I would want to 'pop them out' (so to speak!) but I must be telling myself something if I keep pro-longing the decision making... I would love to hear anyone's experiences on pregnancy and pools/chlorine, I have looked it up on the net and it doesnt seem to be a problem but it is always nice to hear it first hand.

    Hope everyone is well.

    Jess, yay for Aidan walking!

    I dont think pools and pregnancy are a problem as i was recomended to swim while pregnant with Lily, to stengthen my hips because they hurt alot.

    YAY for Aidan walking!! =D> WTG little guy!!

    Kellee- i never thought of having both and we dont really have a plan of attack for tt or the bed either yet... this parenting thing is alot harder that they tell you!! or is it that i just didnt listen and thought i knew everything? lmao! Congrats on the little boy too! What wonderful news!!

    Michelle IKWYM about having DH home alot. DH and I are both at uni studying the same thing and socialise together so i am loking for ways to escape! lol!!

    Rose I am so hoping for you that everything is great. You can definately keep your mind busy with BB!!

    Ryley is in f/t day care now- wow it is different!! He loves it there but I am so upset coz he is all Daddy Daddy at the moment and i ahve only had one Ryley initiated hug in a week and that was today. Oh well its just another stage I am sure!!

    Jess, woohoo for Aidan walking, well done little man! Good luck with your 2nd day on the job today, I think it is very admirable to be stepping outside your comfort zone and doing something completely new like that. I'm with Tegan on the pregnancy/pool thing, I had swimming recommended to me when pg by the physio, so I'm pretty sure it's okay.

    Kellee, woohoo for finding out you're having a boy! IKWYM with the name debates, we made so many lists and had so many arguments and didn't end up naming Kaleb until I was in recovery after the c/s and DH felt sorry for me and let me have my way... I can see things going the same way this time too.

    Pee, Kaleb is a total Daddy's boy atm too. He goes up and gives him hugs all the time, which I barely ever get. It's like he finds me incredibly boring and Dad is a bit of a novelty. Someone with stacks of kids told me that a child will favour a different parent at different stages of his/her life, depending on what they're going through, so don't worry, I'm sure a Mummy phase will be coming up for us soon!

    finally i have a chance to catch up! only because eliana is cutting one top molar & her third tooth on the bottom so is taking a well needed nap - sorry have posted much but i have been in here checking up on what everyone is doing - i must say i like this forum much better - at least i have people to talk to!!

    pee - must be strange not having ryley around full time - gives you more time to scrapbook lol - no doubt he will be into a mummy phase soon - eliana is there right now & although it is cute & i know it p***es DP off it does get tiresome

    jessica - woohoo on aidan walking - must be cute to see him up & toddling around - hope the humidity has gone & your swimming teaching is going well

    kellee - glad your pg is going well - good luck with the names not too sure about bill but im sure you will agree on something by the time he arrives - i think it cute you call charlie master charles!

    mooshie - no doubt you are celebrating with DH back at work! i know what you mean about being around too much but i guess i wont have that problem too much longer!! how is miss lani going with her walking - has she worn you out yet?

    rose - hope things are going better with your pg - at least you are being monitored

    jo - i have visions of kaleb following you slowly around the house! eliana has just started that - think i need a little trailer to pull behind me so she knows exactly where i am - eliana's first word was car - it is amazing what they pick up so early - no sneaking out of the house at your place!

    dach - did you have a good break in surfers? how is your pg going? you're lucky DH & yasin sleep at the same time - that would be heaven

    sorry if ive missed anyone - will try to keep up more - just have alot going on relationship wise & trying to work out what is best for eliana

    Hi all

    Jess - Yay for Aidan walking, clever boy!

    Kellee - Congrats on having a boy! Hope you sort out the name thing!

    Mel - Good to hear from you, don't worry about keeping up just take care of you

    Rose - Feel free to talk about your pg as much as you want, we don't mind you are understandably feeling worried. Hope you get some good news.

    Well not much happening here. It is Harry's 3rd birthday tomorrow, he had a party on the weekend and had a great time so will have a quiet day tomorrow. Grace is saying "woof woof" and "miow" now which is so cute. She has also started having big tanties if she doesn't get what she wants, and squeals. She also bit me the other day but I don't think it was on purpose (well I hope not). She also had a great time at Harry's party.

    Anyway gotta go a certain girl is getting cranky because I am not showing her enough attention!

    Bon

    Bon, so know what you mean about the big tanties and squiling. Lily loves to do it when she doesnt get her own way.

    Hi all,

    Well I was very tired after being a pin cushion for 2 hrs. Three *****s in all and the green drink on an empty stomach. I managed not too throw up. I was just very tired. I sleeped after putting the kids to bed this arvo. Boy it was hot today. 38 deg and will only get down to 22 over night. Thankyou for all your kind words and thoughts. My results come through tomorrow arvo. Fingers crossed.

    Hi bon, I remember you from pg bellies and chatting about big beds when my ds was going into one last year and tt I think. Glad to hear Harry had great b, day.

    melbee70, hoep little eliana settles down with her teething. They can be nasty times. I think Amelia has just the top/bottom eye teeth and the 2 yr molars to get. We are in a teething free stage, thank goodness.

    Hi Jo, don't think we have met. How are you going?

    Pietta, how long has Ryley been in daycare? We are starting ds (3yr) in one day week and making this his 3yr kinda. This starts next week so I am a little daunted. I know he will be fine it's just he has not been away from me a full day regular. As for dh stage, Amelia is very much a mummy girl and has been for ever so long. She would cling to me if I let her but I have my limits. It can be frustrating at times especially if she is upset and will ONLY go to me.

    Hi Jessica, There was a Jessica in our preg trimester, are you that one. Welcome and Hi anyway. It is so cool when they start walking. My dd has been walking 4 weeks and I look at her and can't imagine her crawling. They grow up so quickly. As for swimming my gp said there was no probs at all. You just should not be in the water if your waters have broken. If you are thinking about ttc in the next 3= months don't forget to take your folate.

    Kellee, my scan was the normal scan. She said they were a bit more uptodatye since ds and dd scans. I have my specialist apoint on thursday re the placenta problem. I may even get to see bubs again. How far are you? Names are a hardy. dh does not even thik about it until a few weeks before birth. He thinks if the royals can wait months then a few days wont hurt if our baby is born before we think of a name. I like Elliot as a name.

    mooshie, wow at having one at school this year. That will be different. Lani will miss him I'm sure. I think Amelia will miss ds when he is at 3 yr kinda as they play so well together and are often looking for each other.

    wow what a post. I better go now.

    OMG I hate it when I am MIA for thislong, I am almost unknown, I feel like a newbie. So many things I want to say to so many people and I am overloaded with info atm and it is also getting late, so I will save personals for tomorrow.

    But HI TO Everyone!

    Jessica is also going through the clingy stage, and is a definite mummys girl, as is Jemma, makes it sad for Arron but sometimes very tough for me. Jessica is also a climber but thankfully hasn
    't realised the cot is climbable, except for the time that Arron forgot to put the side up, she climbed straight out then. SHe does get on the bench and on the pool table thoug, hopefully it takes awhile yet to pick up on the cot. As for tt, jem started at 19mths and was daytrained by 22mths. I will prob get the potty put when jess is about 18mths and see what happens. I just left it out and let Jem do her thing, no point stressing.

    Hope the girls who are pg are going ok in the heat and good luck to all those ttg, not me I'm afraid, we have been away on holiday for a week and I am more sure than ever now that 4 is enough for me. Although hugging a 9 wk old was nice.

    Anyway must dash,I should be sleeping. Promise I'll catch up soon, I love the bigger forum too and congrats Kellee on your 2nd ds.

    Cheers Michelle
