    Hey Girls!

    Not much happening here. Hannah and I met the mother's group for morning tea, which was nice. I bought Hannah a couple of other warm items of clothing. It's been warmer today...but tonight is getting cool. Hannah's obsessed with waving at people at the moment - and pointing at everything. I took her into work briefly today and she waved at everyone except my boss...she just gave him a dirty look #-o Thanks kid!!! I had to tell my boss that I've applied for this other job because - get this - they're holding interviews in the training room at my current employer!!!! OMG!!! I think it's a little unfair - I'll be the only applicant who has to put up with that situation... Oh well. Better get the job then hey!

    Dee
    - how exciting to have your u/s coming up! I used to love getting them done when I was pg with Hannah. I am SOOOO clucky right now. If I wasn't waiting to hear about this job application, I'd be TTC I think. I thought I hated being pg - but now that I look back on it I realise how amazing it all was!!! Have fun at BG - we need to invest in some child safety locks for our house too...just one of those things on my 'gunnado' list! How is the situation at work? I can't believe they expect you to do overtime without pay! That is so illegal! They'd have to pay attention if you up and left work as soon as your 'paid' time was up.

    Shannon - thanks for letting us know. Poor Jessalyn. 22 tries is just horrible! Hannah and I are sending her get well vibes through cyberspace. I hope she's home soon.

    Angel - Yay for Kynan sitting up all by himself! LOL @ him taking so long to figure out how to get back down! It's funny watching them discover themselves and their abilities. I HATE it when Hannah tries to stand up in the bath - we've had a couple of nasty slips where I've caught her just in time (catching a slippery, soapy baby is quite a trick!). Now I just get her out of the bath straight away - it seems to be working, she's doing it less and less.



    Belinda - I bet you can't wait for your scan! It is so exciting!!! I'll just have to live vicariously through you and Dee for the moment. I wouldn't be too concerned about your stomach popping out...mine looks about 12 weeks pg... and I don't have your excuse!!! lol. Seriously - I don't know if I'll ever get rid of this baby belly. *sigh*

    Okay girls, I`ve already sms Michelle and told her what we`re having so it`s your turn now before I tell everyone else

    Firstly what a nightmare parking was, it`s always bad at the Hospital but this was totally ridiculous, I rang the OB at 10am saying 'We`re here but having problems getting a park" I could have gone in myself but I wanted Mark with me so 20 minutes later, OB`s receptionist rang and asked could Mark just drop me off, I wasn`t happy about that but knew time was running out but luckily as Mark was dropping me off I saw a lady coming out of her parking spot so after 30 minutes 1 car park was found. The OB who does the scans is a bit strange, he doesn`t say much so we get to see all these parts of bubs and we don`t know what we`re looking at - I much perfered just going to the imaging centre like I did with Matthew but my OB referred me to this OB who is a specialist in u/s.

    Had to ask twice if we could find out bubs sex, in the end I thought he just wasn`t going to tell us but he told us once Mark also mentioned it and we`re having another Blue BOY

    Mother`s instinct didn`t work this time I was certain I was having a girl or perhaps I just talked myself into it.

    Will be back later to do personals.

    Yah at you coming here first, i feel so special )

    Yah for the scan going well

    And mothers instinct isnt always on cue i guess, but i am sure you are happy just the same

    Marks dream of being surrounded by them boys is coming true for him

    Sorry the OB wasnt very animated or vocal, certainly doesnt help when you want to know things!

    And what a nightmare with the parking, lucky Mark didnt miss out, how rude that they suggested it really, i know they have a schedule but these things happen.

    As you know i was thinking with the differences that i might be having a girl but just goes to show i guess that it doesnt really affect the outcome

    Really happy for you, Mark, Matthew and the boys


    Take care

    Hey everyone,
    Sorry i just cant seem to keep up to date on here anymore. i have been drawn into the world of Live Journal and that seems to take up most of my online time. But i really enjoy it, so its all good

    So i might leave here for a while, as i feel bad if i dont answer personals and stuff. take care everyone and i might catch up with you all another time, or in a few months or so. Just so busy with playgroup, MOPS, craft group and all sorts

    p.s dee i'm still praying everyday for you [-o<

    Hi Everyone ....

    Well i'm back from our blissfull week away .... gosh it goes so quickly ... we had a wonderfull holiday just lazing about, we shared a cabin with my sister, BIL & their 2yo boy. We went swimming EVERY DAY the weather was beautiful .... the boys fished (& caught a few), just an all round great time away.

    Jesse is doing well ... his 4th tooth is cutting thru now ... he has been abit grizzly because of it ... he is better now from his cold - Very happy to not be wiping his nose anymore - he still has a little bit of a cough but he is much better.

    There is sooooo much to catch up on so hope to get back in the swing of things in a few days or so .... have been busy getting my resume up to date....my work is trying to accomadate me with a part time position but they say there is nothing at the moment ... so will have to look elsewhere it seems ... which is ok cause i wanted something closer to home anyway.

    hope you have all been well ......xx

    Juliette - Thanks Juliette, Matthew will love his little Brother. On Tuesday they actually called another carer in so that made work a lot easier, we still went overtime but not by much compared to what we have been, they must have known they were pushing me up hill. Both Mark and my Dad told me just to walk out on time but I can`t do that when I`m in charge of 14 children and today they were so pleasant asking how I was and that they are worried about me - yeah right as if I`d believe that - perhaps it is their gulity conscience. OMG @ your work, I hope you get the new job. I know what you mean by feeling clucky the older Matthew gets the cluckier I become.

    Belinda - As you can imagine you can`t wipe the grin off Mark`s face, he wanted 4 boys and now he`s got his wish, he now tells me IF we have another one it will be a girl. I would have been so upset if Mark had missed outon the u/s as you can imagine. Lets hope you have a pink one in there this time.

    Kirsty - I`m going to miss you, hopefully we can catch up with each other on MSN sometime - only problem is I often forget to turn it on lately. Glad everything is going well with you and Hannah.

    Hi Rails - Welcome back, that`s great you had a wonderful time away. Glad Jesse is much better now, WOW all his teeth are popping through at once.

    Told work that we`re having another little boy - I got Oh you poor thing how many is that now? Four - then I got Are you going to try for a girl? I knew this would happen. All the Grandparents thought I was having a girl, MIL was getting excited last time I saw her, she wanted to buy dresses for the baby, hmmm somehow I don`t think I`ll be dressing a boy in pretty pink dresses LOL

    Matthew`s well, he loves coming to work with Mummy and playing with different toys, I do have a problem with him he seems to think we live in USA as in the last 24 hours he`s started saying Mom He`s trying to say some new words but I have no idea what they are :-k

    Would be annoying that work is faking concern for you and i understand why you cant walk out and leave them all, but damn it would be tempting, sounds like they take advantage of everyone there!

    LOL at the MIL and dresses, and yeah i am already preparing for the same comments, maybe i might just cry when they say it LOL, then they will rethink saying it too anyone else lol. What answer do they really want? Yeah it sucks i am so dissapointed and dont really want this one? Imagine if you said that to them, then you would be the worst in the world.

    Thats life i guess Hope you are feeling well otherwise

    LOL at Matthew saying Mom, its our televisions brainwashing them

    Rails: Glad to hear you had a good week away, sounds like it was really nice, good luck with looking for a new job closer to home

    Belinda - I`m sitting here wondering what your deleted post said :-k How are you feeling?

    I`m well (thanks for asking) bubs was so hyperactive after the scan, he`s always active but he was just overactive, the OB did comment how much he was moving, it just got worse as the time went on.

    Matthew had a good night, he was tired after our very long week of not being home much, he slept from 8.20pm till 7am.

    Shannon - I hope Jessalyn is on the mend.

    What would you girls do if DH had his heart set on a name for your baby but you weren`t that keen on it as a first name but would compromise and use it as a middle name? My problem is Mark wants to name bubs after his brother who died in a car accident 25 years ago, so I`m finding it really difficult to even bring it up that I`d perfer it as a middle name, I guess I`d get used to it as a first name, I just don`t know what to do, without hurting Mark`s feelings.

    Dee: It was just asking you how to add msn link to forum but i worked it out so deleted post, nothing too exciting

    I am feeling fine, gone back to no symptoms and i am starting to think its a another boy now, didnt have any feelings about it earlier on, so we will see.

    Thats a really hard spot you are in with the name! I guess you would just have to say that you respect his wishes on honouring his brother and would be more than happy to honour him with a middle name, you shouldnt really have to get used to the name, but i know its a hard one.

    Do you have a relative that has passed that has a name he wouldnt like? Maybe explain it that way that although you respected that person you would use it as a middle name

    Hope you work it out before the due date anyways

    Might have a little rebel on your hands if he is hyper already lol

    Glad Matthew had a good sleep, Mason is pretty well much sleeping through now and just plays in his cot till her hears me most mornings, that i can handle

    Shannon: Also thinking of you and hoping Jessalyn is on the recovery trail

    Belinda - Glad your feeling fine. How many children are you planning on having?

    Oh no don`t tell me I have a hyperactive baby on my hands - Matthew was also a very active bub in utero, he is so full on at times I just let him go then clean up the mess afterwards so looks like I might have a bomb of a house with two hyper children.

    That`s great news that Mason is sleeping so well for you, I hope he keeps it up.

    Matthew is such a funny sausage, I`ve just realised when ever I tell him he`s a clever boy he has to stop what he`s doing and clp hands - he`s so cute, this includes when he taking steps holding onto Mummy but he doesn`t realise yet if he lets go while standing to clap his hands he`ll fall.

    Got a bill from my OB saying his $800 for planning and management of the pregnancy from 20 weeks to term has risen from $800 to $1200 :shock: I know he was extremely cheap at $800 and is still cheap at $1200 but we only have 4 days notice before we see him and we don`t have that amount of $ in our account atm - we haven`t been paid since end of November, things are looking a bit grim with drought etc and bills coming in that Mark`s wages are on hold until the farm gets more money in to pay his wages so at the moment we only have $400 sitting in our account so looks like I`m going to have to cancel my OB appointment next week.

    I better go have a family coming in to look at the kittens at 11am and Matthew has just woken so I hope they don`t turn up just yet.

    That sucks that you may have to cancel your appointment, are you sure you cant make a payment plan with them? Sometimes if you ask they might do it.

    Haha at Matthew clapping whenever he can, even with a fall

    Mason waves but doesnt move his hand, so looks like a salute, he puts both hands up in the air when he doesnt understand you.

    Well just enjoy the break while number 2 cant move in them early months

    I probally will only have this one, did concider 4 but realistically i dont think its plausible, finacially and also we wont fit in my car!!

    I have a hatchback and its going to be a nightmare with two little ones to put in and out, was bad enough with the capsule and Mason, not looking forward to that.

    Hope you sort out something with the OB office

    Belinda - I did suggest to Mark we probably could pay it off but he doesn`t like that idea, I know with Matthew they said we could pay it over 2 installments. I wonder how much we get back from Medicare, with the $800 with Matthew we got all but $120 back so that was good, hopefully it`s the same this time round too.

    Ok Why can I smell incense burning????? I don`t even own any incense sticks.

    My goodness a hatchback with be a nightmare with two little ones plus Luke. We will not all fit in our car when we have the boys (once bugalugs is here), so I have to stay home when we have them, oh well that`s the price we pay for having another child, we were wanting to buy possibly a Ford Territory but ATM we just can`t afford it unless my Dad or Mark`s Mum win Lotto!!!!!!

    Matthew was such a great help here yesterday when I had a couple looking at the kittens, all he wanted to do was pull on Mummy`s skirt, it didn`t help that the skirt I had on was elastic waist so can easy be pulled down LOL. The people weren`t children friendly either, you certainly get to know the difference with the families as I have found ones who don`t like or have children will totally ignore Matthew but one`s who have or like children speak to him.

    Hope your well.

    Well hopefully something financial changes real soon for you so you dont have to worry about it anymore

    I was just sitting outside and thought i want fairy floss so bad, why do we crave things that arent easy to find, ggrrrr!

    I wanted a RAV4 until my gf said how much they are worth, not getting one now! I want to sell my car and rebuy something at the same price but will have to shop around at whats out there in that price range!

    Mason is taking about 9 steps at a time now, so wont be long for him i wouldnt think.

    LOL at smelling incense that you dont have!

    And yeah Mason does that with my skirts all the time, and most of mine end up getting pulled down, luckily its only been when noone is here.

    And it is easy to spot the ppl who arent into kids, i dont let them get to me, there are plenty more out there who are nice to make up for them.


    Mason was up from 8.30pm till midnight last night, any other time he just stirs but cause i had a friend over he didnt of course, ended up tossing him in bed with Bill and said i have had enough now!



    Take care

    Yay my Pixie Photos are in but there is something wrong with one, so they have to change the fronts which will take another 2 weeks to do, oh well I`ll get them eventually.

    Yummy fairy floss, now I feel like some LOL

    Sorry to hear you had a bad night with Mason. Yay for Mason taking 9 steps that`s great news.

    Not sure what to have for tea, I feel like something nice but I don`t know what.
