    Sara you actually sound like you are having fun!!! Good on you girl.

    Tania I don't know what the risks would be. I know what the guidleines are, but like Vic I do what I feel is appropriate.

    Vic any time you need a break - Darcy LOVES lots a kids and I don''t mind the noise or the mess LOL.

    GO LACHIE, GO LACHIE, GO LACHIE! Sheree did you ever think it would be an achievment to get housework done??

    Hi everyone,

    Hope you are all well.

    I just got back from the Tresillian which was fantstic!! I am at least getting 5 hours out of my little one at night and last night she slept even more. The days are hard though as she only sleeps for 1/2 an hour at a time so I have to re settle her constantly to get some more zzzz in there before feeds. It was tough as she did cry a lot and the nurses told me she is a really tough baby but I got through it and hope it gets better as the days go on. At least I dont have to rock her to sleep and she does go to sleep in her cot. I guess eventually she will go from one sleep cycle to the next without my help.

    Vic I keep forgetting to say i am so proud of you for bf as long as you did, you really did do a super job honey.

    And Tania, I am up for a swim, don't look at my grose body thou!!!!!!!!!

    Angelique - congrats, and yeah what tips did they give, its all about settling isn't it???


    Well we went to the CHN today and Lachie has finally passed the 5kg mark, YAY!!!! He is 5.11kgs at 16 weeks, he has grown 3cm in length in 2 weeks and is now 61cm long and I think his head circumferance was 42cm. So he gained 110 grams a week and on average I think the CHN was working out on breastmilk he was only averaging 70-80grams, so guess we made the right decision. So with him refusing feeds and chucking tremendous amounts I can be assured that he is still getting what he needs. I needed to see those scales today to totally rest my mind. The CHN thinks that we need to beef him up a little, and to try and keep some of that fluid down we are going to try some Farix, worth a try! See how that goes.

    Lachie has just had another 2 hour sleep with me, so hopefully we are getting into a daytime routine of sleep........

    Also don't think I told anyone, can't remember, but 2 nights ago he slept for 8 hours straight! Yep that's right 8 hours, he started to stir at 5am, and by this time every night I have put the dummy back in about a zillion times due to him stiring, so I was happy with that, at 6am I fed him, but think I could have gotten longer out of him, but was happy with that for now. Then he slept till 8am, and that was the same day then that he had 2 x 2 hour sleeps morning and afternoon and then he had an hour before bath time and bath time is approx 8:30pm. Wow he finally realises I just might like/need this sleep. Hehe.

    Oh and Tania, it haunted on me that you asked me another question, re: Man united gear. Wow you could read that could you, yeah that is Wade's favourite english soccer team and we had to deck him out with the gear. My sister got it for us over in London. And no we don't have black pants, we just put him in red trackies to wear with it! He wore that outfit when we went to soccer and watched Wade loose the other night. Hehe.

    Hi Girls!!

    Well....as you all know we have been very, very busy moving and we are finally in and kinda settled. I've just got to unpack a few boxes of small things and set up Briley's room and we're right! I'm so glad to finally be in. The dogs love it! We've already had a little event of things happen since we've been here. I was coming down the drive on saturday arvo and i saw a dead possum on the side of the drive way. I pulled up and was looking at it and thought it had a massive growth on the side of it face so i got out of the car to have a closer look. When i walked over to it the growth moved!!! Then it lifted its head and i realised it was the possums baby!! It was a baby ringtale possum.
    Lucky Brent's brother Dean was behind me in another car and came and picked it up and took it into the house. We called the wild life people, but they just gave us the run around. Do you think anyone would come and get the poor little bugger...NO!! I could'nt believe it. So Dean and his g/f took it in with them that night and took it too the wild life lady the next day. They will bring it back here to realase it when it gets older.

    Now for Briley......She had decided that she is ready to sit up!! The other day I walked outside while Brent's mum was in the kitchen and she said to me,"Sara, have a look at this", i looked up and could'nt really understand what i was seeing at first then i realised what she was talking about. Briley had sat up completely and toppled over her legs and was nearly falling out of the rocker she was in!!!:eek: I could'nt believe it. She has been trying to sit up for a little while now, but only a little bit. Then again today she sat right up with all of her back of the back of the rocker. She is a determined little bugger!! She is also in her own room now. Its the right time since now she is sleeping throught the night.

    Briley is also settling into her routine very nicely. Last night she fell asleep at about 8pm and i woke her for a shower with me and a bottle at about 9.30pm and she slept through till 10.30am thismorning. She has even gone back to bed now!! Don't worry i count myself very, very lucky!! She has been talking so much lately. Its so cute. My mum even had her laughing the other day. It sounds like a different baby when she does that.

    Briley's appointment has been booked for the eye specialist out at the hospital for her tear duct. It will be on the 18 October. And for my appointment with the gynaecologist....well i have to wait until 9 February 2007. Pethatic is'nt it! At least Briley does'nt have to wait that long. She is the most important thing.

    Ok for personals.....

    Sheree - Its great to hear that Lachie is going well now. He just needed a bit of time did'nt he. Did all go well after you put him on the formula or are you still b/f?? I wish i could have b/f for longer but i'm glad Briley is on the formula cause she is just the most content baby. I can still bond with her and she still gets what she need out of the formula. I'm happy as long as she is happy.

    Kim - I am happy that i am finally here in the new house, but the move itself was an absolute pain in the you-know-what!! It just seemed never ending. Then there was the cleaning.....never again!!!!

    Did i mention that its bloody cold up here!! Everynight since we have been up here it been 2 degrees and under!! And i had to catch a cold did'nt i. The dogs look at me with begging in their eyes to come inside, i feel so bad.

    Hope everyone else is going fine and dandy. I am really starting to enjoy motherhood and my role as a SAHM. Its seem to be just too easy at the moment. TOUCH WOOD!!!

    Anyhow, talk to you all tomorrow, i am going to bed now. Brent and Briley are tucked in nicely so i'd better go and join them.

    Ooh a possum baby Sara! Between that and the emu, soon you'll have your own wildlife creche! Good to hear Brileys settled. Monkey trying to sit up! I have one of those too. Seems to irriatate her no end that she does topple once she manages to get herself upright LOL.

    Vic - you do not have a tank boy. He's lovely. Odie's gorgeous too. I love the Mr Incredibles outfit.

    Sheree - there's no grose bodies.....we're all in the same boat! Lachie might be a featherweight, and cute, but he trounces all over Darcy in the height and head circumfirence stakes! Gee he looks like Wade doesn't he?

    Ang - Hey sweety! You sound a bit more confident! They didn't make you do anything you didn't want to did they? (I went to Tresillian too).

    Tania - any more mail??

    Nat - where are you, and Kelly, and Shan and Allison?

    Well we have had a week of jabs. I had my depo inj on Monday - man my arm is still sore! The needle didn't hurt, just afterwards. Darcy unexpectedly (didn't think I would get an appointment yesterday when I rang) had her 4 month shots yesterday too. They didn't worry her too much, only cried a bit. Last lot had no effect, but she was so clingy yesterday arvo. I put her to bed and she was ok for a coupl of hours, but as soon as I wanted to go to bed she started screaming like I haven't heard before. It was like she was in pain. She had a huge fever too. I gave her panadol, took off the blankets. Ended up unwrapping her and changing that - it was wet anyway from sweat and feeding her. Was still up heaps settling her back down poor little thing. She didn't want to feed this morning either....uhoh I hear a conversation in the cot....BBL.

    Hi Guys,

    Hope you are all well.

    Well, the tips they gave me were hard to stick to and still are. I guess it depends on your baby but the big thing they tell you is you should let your baby get from one sleep cycle to the next, at least give them 5 minutes then go in and help them on and off and use the dummy as a last resort. For me I can now put Katerina down for her sleeps during the day in her cot and she will winge but go off to sleep for about 30 minutes but needs lots of help to move onto the next cycle. In the end I have to use the dummy. In the night she just naturally goes from one cycle to the next so I have no Idea why in the daytime she cant make that transition. I was told she is too alert and a very very tough and intense baby. I am glad that the nurses thought so as I though I was the mad one. hehhahah.

    In the beginning I had to endure a lot of crying but I gave it a go as it was my last hope and I am glad I did as now Katerina is relaxed and does not cry at the top of her lungs like she used to. It is hard ladies but if it is your last hope what can you do.

    I guess all babies are different and mine needs lots of pushing to get to that stage.

    Hmm Sara (thanks Vic that's what else I wanted to write). I've just had two appts in the last fornight with the gynae and she was able to make them herself. Why is it taking so long? Is it still for your bleeding?

    See Vic Adam's not a tank. Darcy only weighs 6.1kg. There's babies at Leanne and my mothersgroup that weigh 10kg!!! Only trouble is at that heavy their bones aren't strong enough to support them so all the body development milestones will be delayed.

    Morning girls!!

    Well Briley had another good night lastnight. She went to bed at about 9pm and i had to wake her at 9.30am. She even still has her cat naps during the day. I also forgot to mention in my last post that i am starting to give her puree'd foods. She just seems hungry so i tried her on a little pumpkin, potato and beef puree the other night and she ate all of what i gave her. She was even opening her mouth for it. I know your not supposed to till 4 months but she just seemed hungry.

    Vic/Kim - Yeah it public as i don't have private health cover. I'm not sure why its going to take so long, prolly heaps of other people waiting. Before i fell pregnant with Briley i was having heaps of issues with my periods, irregular bleeding since the start of my periods(aged 10), constant period like cramping and i have had to go to the hospital a few times for it once for a suspected cyst on my ovary(not diagnosed i might add, just speculated). I went for a series of ultrasounds and they found an abrasion on my uterus which they wanted to investigate further. So i was booked in for a hystercoscopy and a laparoscopy which is the camera in the vagina, one in the belly button and one in the side. I was on strict orders NOT TO FALL PREGNANT!! They must have jinxed me cause i fell pregnant a couple of months later. So now they are wanting to continue with the "investigation" because the irregular bleeding and periods and cramping have returned after i've had Briley. I had to wait ages for the appointment with the gynae then i had to wait another couple of months for an appointment for the operation. The health system is Townsville is shocking. The hospital was only built in 2000 and they are already knocking back and sending patients to other hospitals cause they don't have enough beds. I was told to leave 2 days after having Briley cause they needed my bed.

    Well today i am continuing with my chores around the house. I got all the ironing i wanted done yesterday and managed to empty some of the boxes. I am finishing the washing and am wanting to bake some brownies and cookes cause i have been putting it off for ages and because i can't bloody find the recipe for the cookies!! I can't remember which box i put them in!!

    I will be back on later. Everyone is obviously very busy today.

    Talk later

    Ciao

    Hey Girls,

    Angelique: Great to hear Katerina is sleeping longer for you, its been a long road but your getting there! Well done.

    Vic: Jayden will sometimes sleep longer on his belly, during the day I am comfortable leaving him on his belly but at night, not to sure yet haha although he does lift and move his head very well. All your babies are beautiful Vic, you must be one proud mama!! Adam's a big boy compared to Jayden but he's not HUGE, love the Incredibles outfit!! Now Jayden is more into a routine I will feel more comfortable leaving him with DP.....Maybe DP hasn't taken to fatherhood because I haven't really given him the chance??? I think I might be a baby hog LOL I hope Dylan is feeling better after his needles and good luck to Mel and Adam for theirs.

    Sheree: I won't look at yours if you won't look at mine LOL. Go lachie!!! Sounds like you made the right decision changing to FF, YAY for the 8 hour sleep and the daytime sleeps, hope he keeps it up for you. I saw 'Manchester' in one pic and assumed it was Manchester United LOL, in week 15 pic 27/31 he looks like he's wearing black pants. Poor Wade losing soccer!!

    Sara: You've done well to get settled in so quickly! Has a ranger been rond to pick up the possum? Get pics of it LOL Briley...you are a very clever little girl!! Come teach Jayden to do things LOL All he has done is rolled from his back to his side and not interested in doing anything else. OMG at your appt, can you go anywhere else? Prob not hey, it would be like in Bundaberg, there are only so many specialists.

    Kim: LOL no more mail for me, although DP got a mystery package the other day, it was a Brisbane Lions lunch cooler bag and we have no idea where it came from, I didn't get it for him and no one we have asked knows anything about it! LOL I hope your arm is feeling better now.....and poor Darcy have a reaction, I hope she is doing much better today too!!

    Anyway I started this in the morning and its now afternoon....LOL I better go. We have Dr's appt for me today and Jayden's weigh in Oh and food shopping seen as DP left this morning after finishing off the bread and milk and took the left overs that I was going to have for lunch!!

    Have a great day

    Well girls it looks as though I can avoid Ebay for a bit longer. I have 2 massive bags of gorgeous clothes here for Em from a friend. We are having a fashion parade I think! Had a great time at kinder gym today though Em got tired and crashed right at the end and missed his favourite part – song time!! Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA I had my cousins funeral yesterday and things here have been a little haywire. Will attempt personals but I have a headache so I apologise in advance to those that I miss or forget LOL.

    Tania ~ Damn about going back to work! Did you go to the parade? GL with the egg donation decision. Poor Jayden must have been stuffed that day! It sounds as though it was a long one! Leave Jaydne with DP – I think it will work a treat! MSN has been playing up the last few days I think. Em sleeps on his stomach now as well – he has excellent head control and can roll now – I did what Vic did and started off during the day and then once I was comfortable went to nights as well.

    Kim ~ Grrrr @ the bad weather! I didn’t know that you shouldn’t give a bottle whilst moving – poor Em lol. Ouchie @ the injection day! I have to book Em in for his shots next week!!

    Sheree ~ Lunch on the beach sounds divine! I got your SMS too – I just didn’t have time to reply with the way things have been these past few days. I was so glad to hear you got a full nights sleep out of Lachie!! Yay! And a bigger yay for him passing the 5 kg mark!!!

    Shazz ~ I hope you’re feeling better hun! LMAO @ DH’s world crumbling!! Men are hopeless when they’re sick aren’t they?

    Mummy4Life ~ Em didn’t get it too badly and got over it fairly quickly. Glad to hear that Phoebe is going well.

    Vic ~ Your little boy is just gorgeous and so are your other children as well! And I’m in love with Odie!!!

    Sara ~ YAY for being moved and settled.Wow at Briley sitting up!! That’s amazing for her age! I love babies chuckles – they are just gorgeous aren’t they?

    Ange ~ Great to hear that Tresillian worked well for you. Em is the same with his day sleeps. He needs the dummy during the day and cuddles to sleep most of the time but night time he is out like a light without the dummy.

    I'm going to see the Boy from Oz tomorrow! I'm going to see Hugh Jackman!!! Yaaaaayyy!!!! Only trouble is, I have to leave Darcy for a long time instead of just an hour......bit stressed about that. I know she'll be fine, it's my mum I'm worried about. Gonna take her over there for the day so she can have a couple of sleeps in their cot before I have to go - and to have someone look after her so I can blowdry my hair....

    Sara so after you asking abou who is having another one - does that mean you have to hold off until after this procedure again? That's a shame they have to put you out like that.

    Tania - I love unexplained mail!!!

    Shazz - how's Nick?

    Shaz: Hope all is well with you.

    Nat: Hope you are feeling better

    And to everyone else have a wonderful day.

    I wrote a huge post last night and the dog came along and pulled out the power cord for the laptop and I lost everything!!! We'll see if I can remember everything....

    Vic:That is a great idea, I'll give it a go when DP get days off, he's doing 12hr nights this weekend . DP is getting better, he now picks Jayden up without asking me first (LOL) and he get him out of the cot after his sleep etc...No nappy changing or bathing yet, but that will come I'm sure. Confidence is def what he needs.

    Nat: How are you girl?? I hope the funeral went ok (as good as those things can be). Wow @ Em's new clothes, take lots of pics and send me some hehe. Poor Em missing out on song time!!Great he had a good time anyway. I hope your headache is better today. I did go to the parade, but we went late and I missed out on the freebies LOL the best thing they gave was a disposable camera but it was 12mths out of date anyway LOL cheapskates!! Oh and a Bunnings tennis ball hehe. I ended up putting Jayden on his belly early this morning to get a few more hours sleep out of him, and it worked!! We have had 2 terrible nights, the first night waking at midnight, 2am, 3am, 5am, 7.30am then in bed with me til 9am and this morning was similar, so obviously I was wrecked yesterday!

    Kim: Darcy will be fine, I hope you have a great time tonight and don't forget to tell us all about it!!

    I went to the Dr's yesterday to get more Domperidone, my regular Dr couldn't get me in for 2 weeks!! So I went to their other practice and the Dr didn't want to prescribe it for me as increase in milk supply is a side effect of the drug and he reckons they don't know what it does to the baby (as a small amount goes through the BM) I said I have spoke to the lactation consultant and looked it up on the internet and there has been no reported cases of it being harmful to either mum or bub and I wouldn't be taking it if there was...he kinda made me feel like a drug addict!!

    Jayden's appt went well, he has gained 140g in 2 weeks and the CHN said he looks bright eyed and bushy tailed so there is nothing to worry about (we are still monitoring it though) He now weighs 5.14kgs, Length 60.5cm and HC 40.5, just a little bubba, but thats the way I like it LOL.

    With the couple of bad nights he's had and also been very sooky during the day, I think he is coming down with his 1st cold, he's also been vomiting a bit the last 2 days. I'm going to give him some panadol and see how he goes...poor bub he is so miserable.

    Anyway I better go before thos naughty dogs of mine pull the plug again haha
    Have a great day everyone

    Just a quick post to let you know I am still around.
    Last couple of weeks have been busy.
    My brother got married last weekend, just immed. family (15 of us total) in mum and dad's back garden so was busy busy busy. All went well. It rained and was freezing cold but you can't plan the weather. Kaitlyn wore her jeans and a jumper instead of the pretty little summer dress I bought for her, but I think she was the warmest one there. She stayed at my cousins for a few hours and entertained them and did not have a sleep in the 8 hrs she was there. Needless to say when she got home she was so tired she fell asleep taking her night bottle and slept 12 1/2 hours.
    The Zantac has been working a treat. She's used to the taste and I think she's put two and two together and knows when she has it a feed is not far behind. The only downfall is her no 2's. They are more frequent and can only be described as explosive and in need of air freshner. Yuk. But, I'd rather that than a 'crying baby'.
    My meds have kicked in for my PND and I am starting to enjoy being a mum at last. I've told my DH that I don't want to go back to work. He's applied for a few positions and has an interview next week so pls keep finger toes and whatever else crossed for us. It would mean a company car which would save heaps with the current cost of fuel.
    Anyway, gotta run Katy's up and of course hungry so better attend to our 'little sunshine'.
    Sorry for the lack of personals, I have read them all, so much to catch up on.... Alot's been going on eh?
    Kim, enjoy your night tomorrow and say Hello to Hugh for me and give him a big hug LOL. Darcy will enjoy sleeping over at nanna's!!
    Finally, happy 4 month birthday to Darcy and Phoebe for last Saturday .... where does the time go?

    Morning Girls,

    Well, today I am having a spring clean - declutter day. I have really let the bedrooms go and got to the stage that I needed to get my *ss into gear. It's just too easy just to shut the bedroom doors, when visitors come around. Maybe I need to remove the doors so I HAVE to keep them clean and tidy....LOL. I have a heap of clothes and bit and pieces to donate, decided to keep the really good baby clothes and things for a friend who is deciding on TTC #3...some of the clothes are in really good condition and sooo adorable, but I know that I can't hang on to it forever, so would much rather pass it on to a friend then donating it.

    Well I better get back to it, I will be back later to do some personals.
