    Hello Louise!
    another June bub & another June boy!, congratulations! Its good to see lots of new ppl coming through, i hope you find this site helpfull, it really is a great support network in here and June group is super special!
    So tell us your story, first bub? How was your pg/labour/birth? How is Joshua going?

    Ali- hope u have fun at mothers group.
    we had a good night giving Nixon a massage, well dh did! exept when he put him on his tummy to do his back/bottom he spewed huge amounts about 4 times.
    The MW weighed him for us and to our surprise he was 5.3kg! so put on another 440g in 2 weeks. so even though he spews alot he is making really good progress. He hadnt really grown in length or head this time so he must be starting to fill out of his skinny body!

    Hi Louise Welcome to our group... just incase you're wondering we have a few mums of babies in here that were born early but due in June and because we've spent most of pregnancies together we're staying together... but we're not cliquey it's wonderful to meet you and little Joshua (very cute!).

    Going to be a gorgeous day here today... looking forward to hanging lots of washing and nappies on the line LOL Niall has just gone back to sleep after spending most of the night in his big cot in the nursery! He's going through a extra settled phase ATM with lots of smiles... smiling with his eyes too so I think they might be more than wind but they could still be mimicry... whatever they are they're very nice. He's due for his immunisation needles and I've decided to take him to our GP's surgery where they have a lovely, gentle pathology nurse on site who does injections (she did Wade). I lined up for council ones with Verity when she was a baby but it's kinda stressful lining up in a queue getting closer and closer to the door and hearing all the babies crying each time one has a needle. Plus you have to make small talk with the other waiting mums which can sometimes be okay but other times not if you encounter a highly stressed out mum... who I feel sorry for but it's hard work kinda making them feel calmer when you yourself are feeling a little nervous. I still get nervous, even though it's my third, but I know that usually all it takes is a BF immediatley afterward to calm them down. That's another good thing about going to my GP's surgery: they don't hurry you out of the room immediately afterwards, you can sit there and feed for a while

    Back later... need to dress Wade.

    ETA: Hope you don't mind June Mummy: I copied and pasted that cross stitch quote you posted in the last thread into one I started in the Punching Bag forum here.... I really liked it

    Welcome Lou!
    Name - Pluto McAlpine...doens't have a very exotic ring to it...
    Umm, what was I going to say? Oh, yeah, Amanda, your friend is projecting her own insecurities on you. Let it go and see how her relationship goes. You may end up being collateral damage. I had a best friend who used me as a crutch (I dont' mind, to this day, it was her way of dealing) when she had depression and her marriage was falling apart. After flagging intention to divorce and was starting to recover from the depression...me? A reminder of a dark period and I was starting to be treated badly. I brought it up (by email, we both worked full time and I was seeing less of her at the equestrian centre we were both at) and she switched off and she didn't talk to me for ages. It never recovered, so whilst we were civil for a while, she has never met Oscar, not contacted me and I still agist my horse at her aunt's property, her aunt is my friend! Moral of the story, don't regret her involvement in the birth, just start to accept that your friendship is going to experience some strain and will possibly not recover. If it does, great!
    Gotta hang washing and go to this ABA meeting (I'm late already, but I'm not wasting this weather!)

    rory hey! we have missed ydo u still have an e mail address? the last few emails i have sent i have gotten a delivery failure from your address?

    We have had a shocker of a day today. starting from 2.30am when nixon first woke. then @ 3.30am i brought him in with me, he was such a wriggle worm i barley got any sleep, fed @ 5am, stayed with me but wriggle worm again. fed @ 8am, put him back to bed and he got himself so upset (while i was having a shower) but stopped the second he saw me. so once settled left him again and off he started again.
    went to the paed today, slept on the way home but when he woke for his feed he would not take my breast? I tried for a good 15min, he was screaming, red face,tears even threw up he worked up so much. i was on the verge of crying myself, end up giving him 40ml of ebm (which he took but still stopping to cry) then finally he latched on....
    He had done this to me a few times over the weeks, i am worried he will eventually refuse my breast all together like he knows he doesnt have to work as hard for the bottle. Now he is zonked because he wore himself out crying.

    Rory! Gee that was so quick you've given me whip lash! LOL It'll be great to see you in here more often

    Nic: Uh oh, hope Nixon decides he can deal with both methods of feeding... I'm sure if he's hungry enough he'll make do! fingers crossed.

    Just got back from my GP's where Niall had his 2 month immunisations. Went as serenely as possible. The aspect i was worried about the most was how Wade was going to stay occupied but luckily there was a good box of toys in the room itself that he happily played with so I could focus 100% on Niall. Poor little guy was sleeping in my sling one minute then woken up to having a needle the next! The doctor was very good, as gentle as could be. I offered and Niall accepted a BF immediately after each needle and there was a bit of a gap between each one... not too hurried. Next time I hope to get an appointment after school hours so Verity can be with me to help with Wade. Didn't give Niall Panadol like I did with the other two and he seems to be doing ok... no temp yet. If he's unsettled tonight I might give him some then.

    Been very quiet in here today.... are we all doing our washing? Perfect weather for it.... speaking of which I'd better bring mine in.... back later.

    Good afternoon ladies.
    Well, work day for me today and boy was clinic quiet, should have come here Bath, we only saw six babies today including Nathan, lol. Almost felt guilty signing my pay slip. (Very short lived, lol.) I was up at 5.30 this morning with Melissa, she's teething , I suspect. Did a load got breakfast and lunches ready and got Bub and me ready for work aswell,Then had to get all kids of to school, kindy and daycare, before I could get to work. I don't believe I made it on time though as I felt that I was lagging all morning.
    We have a student Nurse in with us at the moment so it made work even more tedious, great girl though. Nathan had his needles today. Poor little fella was asleep in the sling when I rudely woke him for the big jab feast. I like Sue's system one nurse on either side and hit them at the same time and sue does the third, very quick, efficient and way less stressful then draging it out. All was done and I popped him on the boob and all was fixed and forgotten very quickly.
    Went out to lunch with the Girls today, It was very lovely, I don't think I've mentioned before but three of my friends are currently pregnant, two little IVF babies boys due in January and a baby girl due in October. I sat their with these women and realised that I was the only one at the table who had not had real trouble conceiving. Three of my friends have PCOS and 2 with Endometriosis aswell and one has had two miscarriages, reasons unknown. I realised how lucky I really am. I'm so happy for them all being pregnant. My other friend who was there has seven years between her two children, she was told she would probably never conceive.
    IK lol just read your post to Lou, I couldn't help but have a little chuckle since as I was reading it the little voice inside my head was saying "Your day by the stars" lol sorry darl you were born to be a psychologist.
    DD want to stay up and watch Honey we're killing the kids tonight, I'll let them. I like that show it gives me a real feeling of self worth. That show proves I'm a good no great parent, both of us are, we are in synch, we have the same values and beliefs, My kids don't get much junk, they are always outside playing (with sunscreen and a hat on) they don't watch an aweful lot of TV and what they do watch is monitored and cencored, they don't swear (atleast not in my presence, lol) not distructive or bullies and are all rounded helpful happy children. I could go on and on, but I won't. That show just validates everything I'm doing as a parent.
    Big to everyone, hi Rory good to see you round.

    Oh nearly forgot does anyone have any lasting birthing defects to their body. I have done something to my tail bone, it is really quite painful and sticky outy I have to sit forward off it otherwise I really starts to ach and become quite painful. I can't sit down for very long. I'm going to post this in the professional help section, I really have been waiting for it to go away but it just won't.

    It's possible, Nic. Why don't you try giving the Australian Breastfeeding Assoc hotline a call? I don't have the number handy, but it should be in your blue book or something. Let me know if you want it but can't find it, I'll post it or email it to you. They might know of a teat that makes him work harder for the milk.
    I got in trouble yesterday when I opened my credit card statement...I've been spending way too much! I hadn't even realised, so I'm going to go to the shops much less often cos I end up buying things I hadn't thought of (so obviously don't need!). The other thing helping me spend less is the Hepburn Springs weekend I'm going on - can't spend money on little things here and there if it's going to make me look bad coming on top of my treatments I have planned! Must think that the less money I spend, the more money I have to get Oscar nice things later, when he'll appreciate them Like DP said, there's plenty of money in the bank, but not a lot going in, so I can't have us going backwards or we'll never live on a farm that's ours.
    OK, I'm off again...

    Dee I'm another that has lasting effect from been pg, I had sicatica and most of it went after the birth but I have a patch on my left leg just above the knee that is slightly numb and very sore the doctor told me it would take a while to go. I think that I may have pinched the nerve as the numbness has nearly gone but the pain is still there and if I or one of the kids bumps it I could nearly cry.

    To all the ladies that have replied about my friend thanks for letting me know that it isn't my fault. I do believe like IK said that this may very well be the end of this friendship, I will just plod along with it and see how we go but it has been very strained this week.

    Today was ekka show day for brissy today, so DH had today off and we went 4wd with our club and it was nice just getting away from all the stresses of normal life. There was nice scenery, nice people and a very enjoyable day was had by all.

    hugs xoxo

    Kel How gorgeous, Talk about melt your heart. I love it when they can express a few different emotions they are so beautiful aren't they.
    Allanah has her speech therapy appointment today. Although I think she is speaking much better these days but Most days I can understand Melissa better then her. Oh we'll see how we go.
