    HI Girls,

    Just a quick one (LOL) from me I am SOOO tired!! We picked up Jayden's professional pics today and tey were FANTASTIC!! I had to get the whole package because I couldn't chose which ones I wanted so all up it was $520.

    I have to try and scan them or something to show your guys!! Tonight went good with everyone here, Jayden got passed around of course but he poor lil babe is absolutley buggered now and is sleeping soundly (I think....DP and SIL #6 are still playing singstar on playstation) I also found out tonight that SIL #5's scan didn't go well...they couldn't find a heartbeat, so she is having a curette tomorrow So unfortunatley that will be it for them they probably won't adopt.

    Anyway I'm going still a little bit in shock and upset

    Hope you all had a great day

    Hi Everyone!

    Just a quick one to let you all know that I am indeed still alive and going well. Mason is still being a great baby (oops, hope I don't jinx it!). I have been reading all your posts and let me say this:

    Marlea - Hi there! Your little one was born just after Mason, she sounds as though she's had a bit of a rough trot! So happy to hear of her sleeping through the night, hopefully she will continue to shock you like that!!

    Tannis - Wow, having all those people over...what a woman!!! And reading your bit about your SIL #5 made me so sad, I'm so sorry. It made me realise how incredibly lucky we were to conceive after only a month of trying. And glad to hear about the photos, we keep talking about getting some done but that's me...a procrastinator!!!

    Scrappyfish - That's so great that Darcy's gaining weight. I know it's average but all babies grow in their own way. She may go through a 'growth spurt' soon...fingers crossed! And I know how you feel with the big power bill...our last one was over $400!!! I couldn't believe it then remembered I've been at home since I left on maternity leave.....AAARRGGHHH!!!

    Shazz - I'm so glad to hear that Nick is going well. I know how I feel if something isn't right with Mason (luckily nothing too serious so far) but wouldn't have handled it as well as you did! And great about the photos! I'm hoping Mason will behave when we go too!!!

    Anyway, Mason's ready for bed so I guess it's goodnight from me and I'll try to get on tomorrow....

    Night everyone

    Oh Tania... your poor SIL. It's so unfair. I hope that she is okay.
    And so happy that you loved your photos.

    A couple of weeks ago there was a photo lab set up at our local shopping centre, and so I got some pics done. For $8.50 you got a sitting & photo. Shaun was being a bit feral, and it was hard to get him to settle down. So they suggested I come back another day. Which I did and he was asleep. The girl who took his photos was lovely, and she really enjoyed Shaun. I went to pick up the photos today, and although the photo girl was about to go to lunch - she saw me and said she wanted to serve me (rather than the other 4 girls). She lay out all the photos and there was heaps of them!!! There were 8 sittings, with 12 photos for each sitting. A package of 12 photos (various sizes) would cost $110 (pretty good value). For two packages (24 photos) it would cost $160. But the girl like me and said if I took out two sets she would give me the rest of them for $180. An offer too good to be true. So I then had to select two sittings to remove. One was easy as he was really grumpy... but I couldn't pick a 2nd one. I told her to pick another. And then she bundled them all together and said I could have all 7 sets for $180! Thats 84 photos of various sizes! I'm so wrapt as I'm about to send a heap of photos to Yarivs family in Israel... and now I can send them these ones too!

    I got another bonus in the mail today too. I am with HBA medical fund and I received a voucher for a free Sunshade Gift Pack because I had a baby. Isn't that nice of them!

    I went to my 3rd mothers group class today, and enjoyed it. We have 15 mothers so it's a bit squashy in the little room.

    I've been to gym quite a number of times, but I got my AF (not sure what that stands for!) yesterday - so I've been a bit slack for the last two days. But plan to go back on Friday! I've got Shaun booked into the gym creche at 9am... so I better go to bed soon!

    And I went nuts buying clothes at Kmart today. They have 20-25% off baby clothes, even off stuff that has been marked down! I grabbed loads of long sleeve t-shirts that were marked down to $2.50 - and then I got 25% off that !!!! Got to love a bargain!

    I spent a couple of hours loading up more photos of Shaun onto our flickr account. See the link below for his latest shots. I ran out of space, so I can't load any more until next month!

    Gosh, I really should go to bed. Must get a bit of sleep before my morning workout.
    Hope you all have a great weekend girls.

    Shazz I missed you by about 23 minutes! I can't ever get on until the arvo when Darc is really asleep. Poor Nic, I really hope he's feeling better. Good thing about kids is that they get really sick quite quickly but once they start to recover that's just as fast.

    Tania and Jodie, great news about both yor photos. We had some done at 3wks old for Darcy and with us as a family. I have ordered probably $13000 woth of photos in the last three years, so I know what I like. Ours turned out great too, but they're too big to scan so I might try and photograph them and see how that turns out. We only got them back from the framers last week. I had an oblong one block mounted - gee it looks good.

    Tania so sad to hear about your SIL. Let her know that there are people around the country thinking of her and the angel lost.

    Well Ihave been busy doing housework - it's about the first time in 14 weeks that I have my neat house back (DH is on arvos and isn't here long enough to mess it up). Now I wish someone would come and visit so I can prove that it once was neat LOL.

    I have a couple of questions -
    1. I'm still feeding (a miracle in itself), but should I always have to wear breast pads? I mean I never seem to leak anymore - does that mean my milk's drying up?? I only get a let down when Darcy feeds, and no real leakage. She drinks from both sides each feed.

    Oh I forget the other one...I've been repeating it all day so I could ask...grrr...will have to add it later.

    Hi Girls!!

    Tannis - Im really sorry to hear about your SIL. Makes you feel crappy about having been through the whole pregnancy and baby thing. I can't imagine how you would be feeling. Give her a big hug from Briley and I. You'll just have to start poppin em' out for her to play with!!!

    Our little family is going good here. Brent is going very well at the "dad" role and Briley is really starting to fall for him. She is begining to become really clingy to me though. I went grocery shopping today and left her with Brent. He is on nightshift at the moment and i thought she would just sleep, but when i got back they were both owl eyed!! She never even went to sleep for him.

    We went to Target and brought Briley some dangly toys to hang from her pram and a mobile for her cot. The mobile was only a cheapo one but is good enough. She likes it anyways.

    I can't believe I am about to say this but......I want to start trying for another baby!! Is anyone else thinking about it??? I'm not sure how it would be looked apon by my family. Brent said he would like to start trying again. My mum said to be the other day that she was'nt suprised that i did'nt have another "gut full" already! Which quite shocked me. Maybe she has finally accepted the role as grandmother at the age of 39!!

    Anyways....Hope everyone has a good weekend. I am going to the Cultural Fesitval tomorrow night. It should be good even though i have the same things every year. Chicken curry and honey balls for desert!!

    Talk later

    Hey All,
    Scrappy - I wear breastpads every day but I get let down even if I think about Mason! Sometimes, if the breastpad moves to one side, I get major leakage! Not a very good look! I suppose if you can be sure that your let down won't happen until Darcy needs to be fed, then you can turf the ol' pads. They're really only to stop leakage when you get let down...wish i could stop wearing them!

    One question for everyone....is anybody having trouble with hair loss? A lot of my hair is falling out and I'm trying some stuff from my hairdressers which my mum used when her hair fell out but I'm wondering....is it ever going to stop! I've done some 'research' on the net and it starts happening around the 3 month mark and can sometimes continue for a year....AAARRGGGHHHH!!!

    Wow Sara. I do miss being pregnant, but due to my body's 'issues' I'm not allowed to fall pregant for at least 6 months and when I want ot I have to go on a heap of meds for 3 months before hand. Good luck when you do start trying though

    Bec, yep heaps and heaps of hair falling out - Darcy's also losing all her hair so between me, Dh and darcy we should all be bald before Summer is over LOL. It does grow back, but mine's so thick I'm hopin it doesn't

    I thught of my other question...
    Am I supposed to wash Darcy's clothes in something other than what i wash ours in? I don't but i heard others saying they do.

    Scrappy - I started washing Mason's in wool wash and then gave up, washing his clothes with ours. If he's not getting irritated skin then all is ok.....

    Hi Girls,

    Bec: DP's family is a challange but I have had them crowding me since I walked out of delivery and is only just starting to slow up now 12weeks later LOL. I feel very bad for SIL #5 as we too fell PG first go and the whole PG was trouble free. Great to hear Mason is going well!! Can't help you with hair loss I haven't experienced that yet but we haven't quite made the 3 mth mark yet (nearly 12 weeks today already!!)

    Jodie: Sounds like you got a really great deal!! Makes me think I got ripped off LOL I dont know how many pics I got all up I haven;t counted hahaha I'll go through them though. Congrats for your gym efforts....I struggle just to go for a walk!! I love Kmarts clearance sales plus the extra discounts, when I was first PG I bought a heap of size 00 tshirts for $2 or $3 each I think he has about 16 tshirts just from kmart in 00

    Shazz: Haha we just had to think about sex and we could get PG...yeh right!! I was lucky, but most of my friends have had trouble either falling PG or with M/C one friend had 2 m/c's and 1 stillborn and she finally got a little girl (she's nearly 2 now). I hope Nick gets better really soon!!

    Kim: Don't tell me that about the photos....I'll end up doing something like that hahaha and DP will kill me...I haven't told him how much they were, he asked and I just said "they cost a bit.." So we left it at that LOL. I know what you mean about housework, it gets done eventually but no where nearly as quickly as it used to! I have the same thing with leakage, I rarely leak and I never wear breast pads anymore, I only get the let down when jayden feeds and i feed from both sides too. I was certain my milk was drying up but I have been reassured by the lactation consultant that for some that is quite normal. With Jayden's washing I wash his with Lux because I got bought a heap of it from MIL so I will use it up then start washing with our things and see how he goes.

    Sara: Good on Brent for taking to fatherhood (more than I can say about some DP's in my vicinity LOL). Not crazy for wanting to start trying for another baby, I think I would too if DP was into it, but I am also happy to wait as I can devote all my time to Jayden, I can multi-task but only to a certain extent LOL.

    Thank you so much everyone for your thought with SIL #5, she had her curette today and MIL had called to see how she was going but was still sleeping. I just feel so bad for her!!

    We finally got our SLR digital camera today, but the battery has been charging and I went out tonight so I haven't played with it yet. I got SIL #4 to babysit tonight while I went out and DP is on nightshift (YAY) I told her he fed at 6pm and he has been feeding 2-3 hrly instead of his normal 4hrly, but I said he will be due for feed around 9pm try not to give it to him before so he will sleep tonight.......I got home about 11pm and she said she forgot what time i said so she gave him EBM bottle at 7.30pm so I hope he doesn't wake at 3 or 4am for a feed!! Oh speaking of leakage Kim, the other night Jayden woke for a feed and I was pretty full, I fed off one side and the other go the let down and absolutley drenched my tshirt and bra!! Then last night Jayden went to sleep at about 9.30 his last feed was 6.45am.....he slept through and this morning I was VERY full!!! I woke at 7.30 cause thats when he usually wake for a feed, but not this morning.....9.20am I felt he had slept more than enough and my boobs were so sore from being too full so i woke him up. I went to change his nappy and I started to leak again...I have never changed his nappy and got him dressed so fast haha I didn't want to lose any of the milk LOL....he fed off one side and I expressed another 120ml!! So I felt heaps better about my supply even though it had been more than 12hrs since i had fed.

    Anyway if I forgot anyone I am sorry I will read through again tomorrow...I am very tired again tonight.

    Thanks again everyone...you are all wonderful beautiful ladies!!!

    Shazz thanks for your info last night. Appreciate it. Hope your day today wasn't too bad. Thanks to all you other girls too.
    Don't know why they worried me, but they did - I cannot wait to find some confidence again.

    Evening all.
    We're not thinking of the next one yet for a while. Still trying to get used to this dd! I loved being pregnant though. No morning sickness and pretty stress free. Only gestational diabetes but looking back was not that bad... With my PCOS it could take a while to conceive baby no.2 so we're thinking of thinking about it early next year. Need to lose about 20kgs first!!!! Drs orders.

    Does anyone get assistance from family with looking after the house, cooking etc? When I was PG my family was like oh well help you, we'll come and visit, we'll pick you up and take you out, we'll come look after the baby so you can catch up on some sleep etc etc etc. Has it ever happened ? Ahh NOOOO.

    Sorry, just needed to vent a little.

    My dh and I have decided to see how long it will take before someone from our family actually contacts us by way of phone, email or sms. Does anyone else have the problem with family that if you don't contact people or invite them over you are forgotten about.
    Sorry again if I sound like I am whining.... A bit over it lately. :O(

    Now about all of you...

    Tania, your poor SIL.. I can't imagine what she might be feeling. Please pass on our regards. I am sure you will thoroughly enjoy your digital SLR... We have one and they're so nice to use. I need to learn what all the buttons and gizmos are for still. At this stage I just use the automatic option....

    Has anyone tried digital scrapbooking? I'm into it and its addictive.

    Jodie. What a bargain you got with those photos.... The other day pixifoto were at the local westfields with the 'baby of the year' contest, where you enter for $4. Kaityln was not in the best of moods (but what's new? LOL) but I thought's she'd behave just this once. Well was I wrong. First she spewed all over me, then all over the photographer and their teddy props, and then she screamed the shops down. I ended up rocking her to sleep half naked (wrapped of course) so we could have her angel asleep pose done. She was frowing that much she did not look at all angelic. Quite a stressed out little angel in fact... Poor thing.... It will be interesting to see how the pics turn out. She could still win LOL. We go on Thurs to have a look and see if they are worth the $495 they estimate the package will be. My dh is coming with me. Needless to say I don't think we will be buying any.

    I've never even thought to wash Kaitlyn's clothes in anything other than what everything else is in.... I'd never heard of it.

    Shazz - I'm sending prayers up for Nick and hope he's 100% soon... :O)


    Well I think my little post is llooooooooong enough.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend and may all our babies sleep well tonight....

    WOW Do I have too much to catch up on. I will try and flick through the 4 pages briefly (otherwise it would be a huge post!) so sorry if I miss anyone!

    Kim ~ Big on selling the ****ie. Iím sure youíve made the right decision. And big on how youíve been feeling. I had no idea. We are here for you hun. How are things now?? And I doubled my power bill as well LOL.

    Sheree ~ Iím so glad that you made a final decision with Lachie and I hope things start getting better from here on in! You sound so much happier already. I hope youíre enjoying your holiday.

    Vic ~ Kindergym is basically for myself LOL. A lot of my mothers group go there and we have coffee afterwards LOL. Swimming lessons will be good for me as Iím nervous around water myself.

    Bec ~ OMG my hair is falling out everywhere LMAO!!! I have to clean the bathroom up everytime I brush my hair. Its bloody ridiculous and Iím sick of it too!!!!

    Tania ~ Iím so sorry to hear about your SIL. Big for her! Glad to hear that the photoís were fantastic. YAY for your new camera.

    Marlea9 ~ If you want to post your details you can email them to me or post them. We normally only do emails but seeing as Iím in here daily I wonít miss it.

    Shazz ~ How is your Nick going now?? You must have been beside yourself!!

    My god you ladies can chat can't you! I tried to catch up on the posts, but my eyes are shot ... I will get to them one day, but really no personals today.

    I should be in bed, but Scott and Jovi have gone (a while ago) and I got watching Bewitched (the movie) and now Blue Heelers is on Hallmark channel, so I thought I would take the time to post a message for the first time in ages.

    Jovi's doing well. Popped her on the scales at the chemist today 5.5 kg ... so she's over 12 pounds now which is just amazing considering the crappy start she had weight wise. But she's certainly growing up our little one ... all (usually) smiles and giggles. Blow rasberries on her belly and she gets histerical.

    Taking her to the hospital on Tuesday to have her hips rescanned. Hopefully they have fixed themselves as the dr said they would. Then back to our doctors on Friday ... needle time already! Thought it better to make it a Friday so at least if she gets a bit grizzly or has a reaction this time, I will be home and Scott won't have to cope alone. The first lot didn't bother me at all, but whether it's just cos I'm really hormonal this week or what but everytime I think about this lot of needles I just want to cry. Grrrrr stupid woman. lol

    The trip home the other weekend was great. Spent some good time at home with the parents and catching up. Took Jovi down the street a couple of times and she's such a sticky beak. Had to watch every car and person that went past, and smiled really cheekily when people said "your a pretty girl aren't you?" ... yes she is and doesn't she know it! lol Dad had a lot of fun with her. She's not so fragile now and he could play with her. The morning we were leaving she was sitting in her bouncer and he was rubbing his head on her belly and she was giggling so loudly and couldn't stop ... it was so cute and funny. I wish we had a video camera so bad! lol But it doesn't take much to make her giggle these days and it's such a cute little laugh.

    She's discovered her voice quite a bit over the last week. Gurgles heaps and squeals and talks away ... she's always talking to me as if she's asking me a question then looks at me waiting for me to answer. Ummm ... hellO! I have no idea what you're saying, so I just agree. If she starts looking at Scott's chair I just tell her where he is ... lol

    No teeth yet ... just lots of chewing now on my hands and still drooling really bad. I had drool falling off me yesterday and had to completely wash my hand afterwards ... was so gross. lol

    Work's going ok ... tend to stay away from people and just do my work. There's one guy there I love to tick off... dumped a massive pile of files on his desk for approval the other day ... Sorry! No hurry and turned and walked back to my desk ... laughing all the way of course. He was not impressed! One of the other b*tches is on leave at the moment ... but the time she gets back I'll have a massive pile on her desk too ... hehehehehehehe

    I recall someone asking about the baby naming ceremony we're having. Very simple. Just welcome, introduction, god parents speil, candle lighting, cake cutting, presenting Jovi. I think that's about it. Should take about half hour I think. Having it in the park back where Scott's parents live and then back to their place, which is right next to the park, for nibblies and a BBQ. Nice and simple. Sending out invites this week ... just did them up on the comp. Have a nice photo of jovi in her Souths gear ... such a cutie. If I could get my comp to work properly I'd post the new pics I have on her website ... will have to do it at work when I get a spare chance.

    That's all I can think of right now ... hopefully talk to you all again really soon! Bah Bye!
