    hey guys,

    just a quick one, dont have much time as you all can understand.

    Gabysmum - how scary about Alex! im glad he is ok though.

    Candy - Woo Hoo for Ryan, thats great for him to be able to do that, i have been trying lachlan on his belly too and he is nearly there although he gets a bit grizzly after about 1 minute of being on his belly

    Nickers - good to have you back.

    Ik - glad you sorted the bag situation, i was reading your posts earlier but didnt get a chance to reply, i was about to tell you to keep it.

    Things are still the same for me although lachlan has had a couple of pretty good days, we took him for a drive the other day just to get out of the house and DF had a day off but it was abig mistake, when we got home he screamed for hours, wouldnt go to sleep and was really unsettled, i hate going out now, i think ill just have to be housebound for a while.

    I got my script for the minipill made up but havent started it yet, is anyone here taking it? if not what are you all using (sorry if too personal) im really worried to use it as i have heard that it can cause the baby to fuss when feeding too. i guess you only ever hear the negatives about things but because lachlan is so unsettled already i dont want to risk anything!!

    Big hello to everyone i have missed!!!

    Hey everyone
    sorry no time for personals, Anneliese is FINALLY asleep. She's not sleeping very well at the moment, and i havent been getting any sleep at all.

    just quickly DEE im getting an IUD put in-doesnt affect your body, lasts 5 years, fertility comes back almost straight away (not after a while, like the pill...) and can be popped in while your having a pap smear (which im soooo overdue - get 2 birds killed with one internal!!) HTH

    When are we going to have the meet? Im going to perth next week, for 4-6 weeks.... DH and i have been having some probs, so we are going to have a break.
    Oh, and Anneliese rolled back to front the other day... i was so surprised, as corrected age she's only 2w old... still in 0000's though!!

    Good night everyone, see you tomorrow...

    Just on my way to bed... really tired after spending most of day at Verity's District Athletics Day (Verity's friends basically looked after Wade all day and Niall slept in pram most of the time)... DH had the day off to see her too which was nice. When we got home I had to dash of to a doctor's appointment (to ask about my chest pain and to have an over due pap smear) then I did the grocery shopping (nice and leisurely without the kids) DH did the washing and tidied up the backyard whilst I was out, good man.

    I'll do proper personals tomorrow but briefly:

    Rory: my chest pain doesn't really feel like a bubble... it's quite sharp stabbing pain that I only feel when i try to breathe deeply... no other symptoms... doctor doesn't know what it could be but told me to contact him again as soon as there is any other symptom. It doesn't get worse when I'm active, infact it gets better... strange. Also may I have your email too? And yeah Divvy and I have been out twice now with the restuarant club... you oughta join us!!!

    Nic: Good to see you back! I'm happy to fit in with any meet up suggestions... my week is very flexible.

    Rolling Over: Niall isn't attempting this yet at all however he gets lots of tummy time and is almost up on his elbows! I personally don't mind if he takes his time rolling over because it makes nappy changing a bit trickier when they start doing that!

    DH is waiting for a hot chocolate... see you all tomorrow!

    What is it with all of us and pap smears? I am due for mine tomorrow as well and at same time am going to have a chat to doc about getting a referral to a surgeon for a breast reduction. I have humongous breasts and get quite alot of pain in my back/neck area so am looking forward to getting them done - may not be for another couple of years yet but at least I can get the info!

    Yippee to Candy for Ryan rolling! Alex moves and wiggles alot but I have to admit I have been very slack with tummytime this time around.

    Hope things work out for you Simone. Oh well Perth isnt that bad a place anyway - do you have family here?

    Glad you sorted out the bag situation IK. I got sooo many presents and lots of winter clothes that Alex was never going to use up in Karratha so I exchanged as many as I could.

    As for the contraception discussion, we are just using condoms for now and we did the same after DD was born. Am in no hurry to go back on the pill and as we are contemplating a third if we did have an accident it wouldnt be an issue.

    Am off shopping tomorrow with my mum for Alex's christening outfit. Gabriella wore mine but it is quite distinctly a dress as opposed to a gown and DH refuses to let Alex wear it!!! Hmmph Men!

    yeah i gotta find something for Nixon for his christening now too. i dont even know where to look?
    Bath- interesting, ive been getting chest pains also. on and off, mostly mornings and hurts when i bend forward, have no idea what could be going on but its quiet painful when it happens.
    i killed two birds with one stone & had my pap smear done at my 6 week check up, glad thats over & done with till next time!
    Simone- r u taking the boys with u to perth aswell? do u have family over there? what day r u leaving? i hope the break is what u and dh need to help sort things out.
    Dee- i also got my mini pill script a while back but havent started using it. i too heard it can dry ur milk up & dont want that to happen. u also need to b spot onn with timing when taking it to or ur not covered. not like normal pill u have a few hrs to spare i think u only have a 2hr window from the time u take it each day. we've just used condoms on the rare occasion we have even done it!

    going to mums bubs aerobic thismorning. ive missed the last two had something on and im feeling very fat atm. i have 7 weeks to loose some weight & fit into some nice clothes for a wedding im going to.

    Hey, I dont have family here, they are all in Perth. Its ryans family thats all over here-he's a Melburnian!! Im looking forward to all my family meetin Anneliese, My Mum and 20yo sister were here when i went into labour, and have seen her, but she was too unstable (being so prem) that they couldnt hold her. My 15yo sister was here when Anneliese came home, and she's the only one who's had a hold. My youngest sister and both my brothers have been dying to come over here, but m&d just couldnt afford it...

    dee78 - I feel like that with Alexandra too at teh moment, I don't want to leave the house as she is likely to scream if I do... I really want to go any buy DH his father's day present from Alexandra (I'm buying a small canvas and will put in Alex's hand prints). It will be a great painting for him, and i know he will love it.

    GabysMum - my aunty had a breast reduction and LOVED it, I hope you can get all the information you need (and the money) and you get some releif.

    IK - I have a cloth sling (slingalong) from a friend which is OK, I used it in the first two weeks as I could not figure out how to unfold the pram, I may try it again.. thanks

    Hi Simone, we have not met, I'm CC, I was a June belly but Alexandra was born in July, so I'm hanging out with the June crew... I'm sorry your having troubles at home, I hope the warm weather in Perth helps. Perhaps you could meet up with some BB memebers in Perth? If you don't know anyone it maybe a chance to meet some nice people?

    Must run and iron DH's shirts for next week while DD is asleep.

    Good afternoon... another gorgeous day in Melbourne, 22'C I believe, done my 2 loads of washing. Both boys asleep, about to make a spankopita for tomorrow's lunch with a friend and her little boy. Also, I forgot to mention my new neice's name is Ebony, not my cup of tea but she does have jet black hair apparently like her siblings who also have lovely fair skin too making it a nice combination... she's a sister to Paige and William... they live interstate (NSW) so I might not get a chance to see her for a while. Looking forward to speaking to my sister this weekend via 'phone to get all the birth details.

    CeeCee: Make sure you take a piccy of the canvas... it can be tricky getting a little baby to open their palms so good luck! I must do Niall's feet soon with ink because i've got 3 month old prints of Verity and Wade and I'm very keen not to have Niall miss out on anything they've got! Also, why do you iron your DH's shirts? Not meaning to imply that you're doing the wrong thing, just interested, I would have thought you had enough domestic duties to do. If you're losing sleep at night and he isn't then I think it would be only fair that you use any time that you're not dealing with Alexandra's clothing needs to catch up on some rest! Women take on A LOT of extra domestic duties when a baby arrives and unless they aren't careful the workload can become just plain unfair. Don't let him use the excuse that you're "at home all day anyhow". Factor in the extra time he gets to sleep at night and subtract that from the time you spend doing housework during the day... lecture over Also as babies grow and become mobile it gets harder and harder to iron due to safety issues... we have trouble with Wade and the iron so DH does his shirts early in the morning or late at night when he's asleep.

    Simone: I know how hard it can be when close family is spread all over the country... I also lived in Perth for a few years and spent thousands travelling back and forth to see them. Luckily i didn't meet a man over there and settle down! Also hope things are calming down between yourself and your DH or that you are at least getting the kind of break you need

    Nic: We're thinking of a Christening ceremony for all 3 children too. I want Niall to wear a knitted cream family heirloom that's probably at least 50 years old but it's in very good condition, unisex, and I'd say it would be comfortable... you see a lot of lovely Christening outfits but I wonder how comfy they would be... the last thing you'd want is an irritable baby because lace is itching etc. It will fit him when he's about six months old so that gives us a bit of time. Also this chest pain is a weird one hey? Alarm bells went off for me when i consulted my big medical encyclopaedia and in the symptom sorter for chest pain it said that if you have recently had a baby or an operation you might develop chest pain because you are at a higher risk of developing a pulmonary embolism! ie blood clot on the lung! This is serious... but luckily my GP is pretty sure it's not that because there would be other symptoms like shortness of breath. The pain is worse when I breathe deeply but I don't have shortness of breath. Let me know how you go with your pain.... we'll keep an eye on each other... little health issues can be pushed aside at times like this which isn't good. I also didn't have a 6 week checkup as such... too hard to do with the boys... i knew that DH would be having time off work this week so waited until yesterday.

    Gabysmum: I've also know a woman who had breast reduction who wishes she'd had it done years earlier. Hope you find a good surgeon... but there's no hurry hey? You'd wait until after having all your children? We also just use condoms on the rare occasions we do the deed. I just hope ours don't break because it would definately mean the morning after pill for me! Even though i kinda feel sad that there's no more babies planned for us I think I will get over it... I want to move onto the next phase of my life. However it will be so exciting finding out about Junies falling pregnant again! I just hope we don't lose you to another group LOL... Now, why don't all the Junies who are planning to fall pregnant again synchronise your cycles and fall at the same time so we can all follow your journey in here! LOL

    Uh oh... Wade awake and I haven't done everything I needed to... he wants a Thomas DVD though... let's see if that buys me a bit of time! Back later!

    Hi gals, just a quick one here, it's my bday today and DH has day off, so just popping on quickly to check emails etc and thought I'd say hi!

    Well, Freya gave me the best present of all...after trying her on Mylanta last night with her bottle, she drank the whole lot and slept from 7pm till 5.15am...she has never even come close to that! I am so happy, and so is she!

    OK, be back tomorrow, hope everyone has a lovely day!

    Happy Birthday Jo! yay Freya!!! Good girl! Giving Mummy a rest Hope you're having a lovely day... you must be feeling sooo much better!

    Also, sorry CeeCee, I've been stewing on how I told you not to iron your DH's shirts... I really shouldn't have said that... I'm sure you both have reasons why you do things the way you do. I wouldn't say "why do you cook meal's or do the laundry or the vacuuming or the shopping" etc so why his shirts? Maybe because all those other jobs benefit everyone and the shirts are something only for him which is very time consuming. I just hope you all are aware that the number of domestic chores can easily grow and grow until suddenly you find that you are doing everything that you did before baby came along and more and that the workload for DH hasn't changed at all infact it has lessened. I also know a lot of men who use the line that "they work harder/longer at work since having a baby" but in reality they are socialising more after work and at lunchtime and just not letting on to their wives. Housework is more accountable than paid work outside the home and I just don't want any of my Junies to be taken advantage of. I'm not saying 'don't do anything for them'... I'm just saying "if it's ONLY for them" then question why you are doing it... is it because you truely don't mind doing it? or is it because they simply expect you to keep doing it? You all have enough housework to do that benefits your whole family without taking on anything on a regular basis that's only for them. Of course... ironing shirts can be a useful bartering tool You give me a footrub and I'll do your shirts

    Hi Alicia!
    i think Jo had her little girl Freya on the 9th also! she looks gorgeous in your ticker!
    so was she early/late/on time? tell us your story.
    My boy was due on the 1st of June but decided he wanted to be an April baby! But i grew so close to all the Junies i still chat in here.
    What state are you in? Melb girls are looking to catch up soon and i think Perth girls were too. I bet Ruby helps you out heaps with her little sister does she?!

    Happy Birthday Jo!!! how nice of Freya to give mummy a big sleep (she must have known it was your bday!) Im glad you have had a good day

    Bath- i will have to keep a eye on this chest pain, what u mentioned sounds pretty serious. Mine seems to come and go though its not with me constantly, thats why ive been a bit slack and havent taken myself to the docs.
    Simone- You will have a great time with your fam in perth. All of mine and DH fam are in Sydney so i know what its like not having them around. my parents came down for the borth but were unable to hold Nixon also so it wasn't until a month or more later when they got back down they got their first cuddles... oh they will not want to put her down!
    so we are going to Portsea tomorrow and i was happy to see it is suppose to be 22 again in melb tomorrow!, we will go down in the morning, have a nice lunch and check into our hotel. Coming home friday but might get the ferry across to Geelong and come back up that way if its nice weather on Fri. Im looking forward to our short getaway.

    dont u love husbands. I was up from 4.45am thismorning with nixon, at 7.20am after he went back down he was screaming, i let him go to see if he would settle but he only got worse. He was so loud and i was amazed dh did not even flutter an eye, i nudged him when i got up and said how can u not hear that! Now he is blissfully having a nap on the lounge "because he was tired"!!! If only i got that luxury, its Nixon's grumpiest time of the day and there is dh sleeping away on the lounge grrrrrr.....

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY JO!!!!!
    you are so lucky to have freya sleep like that, im very jealous!!

    Also hello to Alicia, you are more than welcome to join our group!

    All this talk of meeting up is a bit depressing, i wish i lived in melbourne so i could meet you guys. Does anyone live near me???

    Well made a big mistake today, thought i would be adventurous and go over to a friends house (bout 1/2 hr away) lachlan was ok while i was there but since i have been home he has been screaming, wont let me put him down!! Im waiting for this magic 3 month mark that a lot of people have told me about!!!

    ok i need your opinion ladies.

    DF's fathers partner is having a party for his birthday in a couple of weeks, i really dont want to go as lachlan is very unsettled (as we all know, look at todays episode!!)
    Anyway i have said that i dont want to go. I know that if i do go he will get bundled around from person to person and i will spend the rest of the night in a bedroom trying to settle him and i wont enjoy myself.
    DFs family are coming down in a few weeks for a bbq anyway so i will see them all then but do you think im being selfish, i just really dont want to go. I dont want to turn into a homebody but at the moment its impossible to go anywhere and have a good time. im sure it would be a different story if lachlan was a bit more settled (although i still wouldnt want him passed from person to person, he is NOT a toy, no one seems to understand this)
    Am i being rude??

    Baths - don't worry, DH begs me not to iron his shirts, but he does sooo much for me that I want to do something nice for him..

    Also, every morning at 5.30am (or whenever Alexandra has finished her 5am feed) he takes her out of the house for an hour, then looks after her while he gets ready for work - till 7.45am so I can get some extra sleep.

    He also wakes at every feed no matter what time of day or night and asks if I want something (water/ nappy change) he also gives me at least 2 back massages every week (more if I want), makes dinner on occassion, washes up, does the vacuming and cleans the bathroom and does the laundry.. - need an explaination... we are newly weds!!!! He hee.. but he is also a wonderful hubby and dad...But thanks for looking out for me... Regarding the hand print, if it is too hard, I will do the foot, but DH told me her hands are his favorite "bit" of her this week so it would be nice to capture them for him!

    Hi Alicia! We would love you to join - I'm not on the home page as my baby was offically born in July, but I was a June belly so here I stay!Which state do you live in? I think most of the girls here are in Victoria...

    Happy birthday Jo - that is so funny you mention the gift from Freya as for my birthday last month, all I wanted was sleep, and it was the first time Alexandra sleep for more than 3 hours (she was only 2 weeks old)... I loved her for that!!!! How do our little ones know???

    We have booked our "Blessing" for Alexandra for Christmas Eve at the same Church were DH and I married last year.. I can't wait, she is going to look beautiful, and I'm going to get my hair done and buy a new dress and shoes. It is a motivation to loose some weight too...I sure do need it.

    Baths & Nic - reading about a Christening ceremony for all children sounds great, almost makes me want to delay until we are a 'complete' family....I think it is a loverly idea..

    Well, my MUM arrives tomorrow so I will not be around for a few days - she has not see Alexandra since she was born (she was at the birth but had to leave the next day), I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love my Mum..

    Hope you all have a nice weekend, chat next week.
    luv
    CC

    edit: Dee, just read your post: I'm so sorry you feel like you can't go anywhere - you should do what you need to do for your own sanity, they should all understand. that said, I really want you to enjoy your beautiful baby and think that you may benefit from some outside help. There is no shame in seeing a sleep managment consultant, I saw a lactation consultant when I couldn't breast feed properly and I know she often goes to people's home to help them settle their new baby in... She bring a hammock so they can try them and see if they work, helps you set up routines, and helps you to understand how to settle your particular baby...hope I'm not overstepping a line here..but maybe outside help would help you all?????
    PS: prior to the hammock I would settle Alexandra on the washing machine - the spin cycle works a treat, I would hold her on top of it and the vibrations would make her eyes roll and she would fall alseep, maybe give this a go next time your desperate?
    The girl who lent me her hammock saw a sleep consultant and she gave me all her tips, would you like me to email them to you?

    Howdy girls - Flynn is having his first real "unsettled" afternoon - he doesn't want to go to sleep (hasn't slept much today - I went to a crybaby session at the Nova in Carlton to see "Jindabyne" so he only catnapped). So he's here on my lap wathcing me type.

    CeeCee your DH sounds wonderful! Not that I can complain about mine, but yours is especially good!

    Bath, I do agree with what you say though about housework - women do need to be careful of the whole "I go out to work all day" thing - working full time when your wife is home with an unsettled baby is far easier. That said, I do think my life is easier now than when I was working (I did really long hours and it was quite a stressful job at times) but that's because I have an "easy" baby. Seriously, today is the first time he has been really cranky, and even that said he is pretty content here on my lap sucking his dummy.

    Dee, I really think you need to do what is best for you and your bubba - I can't imagine how hard it must be for you but I can tell you there is no way any sane, considerate and loving relative/friend/person would criticise you for not wanting to have your unsettled but roughed up and made even more cranky. It's just my opinion, so take it with a pinch of salt, but you gotta do what's right for yoy!

    Happy birthday Jo - what a good girl you have!! Welcome Alicia !! Simone, that is so impressive about the roll - Flynn is such a boofer I think he will be ages off rolling

    Nickers I will email you today.

    gotta go - Flynn is getting bored with this lap thing - keeps arching his back and sliding around

    ciao bellas

    Rory, yes, DH is a gem - my first hubby was tall dark and handsome, but a real jerk, this time I'm on a winner...

    What was the crying room like? I think I want to try it out. I want to see that movie called Spin Doctors (I think).

    Well, Domain is having 13 cent prints until 10pm tonight, so I'm going after dinner to print out all my photos of Alexandra... yeah.
