    Hi Everyone!

    Sorry, I have had such a full on week I have hardly had a chance to catch my breath! Then I worked last night so am sooo tired but have a cranky man who won't snooze!!

    Dan - I know you asked me how the weaning was going! Well I have finally stopped as of 2 nights ago. I am sad and also happy. Sad that I may never BF again, sad my boy is growing up, sad that my boobies are now saggy!!!! Happt to have my body back, happy that I can feel happier working at night and he doesnt miss his girls, happy I have fed him to almost 15mths, happy to have a few drinkies and not feel guilty!!!! So, he is having about 2-3 cows milk bottles a day just for sleep (is that naughty still feeding him a bottle to sleep?) But he is happy, so I am happy!!! Marriage wise, I think I might go to some counselling ,we both have some issues and talking about it with a third party rather than friends etc might be better. I think I am just expecting too much of myself, I cry when my housework gets on top of me, when the washing piles up, when I generally can't keep up with the general runnings of the house, the kids sports, and work - and SLEEP!! the have to try to work hard jst to get our relationship to work. Sorry, I sound like I am having a debrief now!!!! Anyway, I just have to accept my house isn't going to be spotless, and family and friends will just have to accept that if they pop over! Phew, that feels good!!

    Lis - woohoo, congrats on the house. Tell us more!!! What is it like!!! How exciting for you all!



    Tan - My God, you will have another baby soon!!!! You are flying through this preg I reckon, wow! you look so well though, and your belly is beautiful. I am so envious! I am hearin you on the distraction! You know what works well with Angus!! I brought a In the night garden book with sound buttons, he hears iggle piggle and comes running!!! Loves it!! Got it from target, he is so addicted to taht show. It is very annoying though all the characters! Interested to know bout Pinkys book also.
    Lulu - I hope things are looking up for you. You are doing a marvelous job, never doubt yourslef, your girls love you! Hope the meds to their magic. *hugs babe*
    Kass, D, Ash, beck, Hubbabubba, Sarah Hello to you all!!! Have to cut it short, my man is harrassing me, think he needs a nap before dinner!!
    Thinking of you all!!! xxx

    Lulu: im so sorry you have PND. Ive been struggling with it since day 5 after M was born. I am actually going to the PANDA conference next week and I will be speaking in front of hundreds of women. This is a HUGE step for me and I hope I can change someones life....

    Sarah: welcome back hunny

    tan: get your but into gear woman! Rememebr M was born 3 weeks early!

    Shell:I really hope you guys can work it out. A two day break was a great thing for us.

    Kass: Good luck with the course!

    Good to hear from you hubbabubba!

    OK,got a question for u gals....im still BF brody (he loves his boobies like any male alive lol),am on the mini pill and finally got a period when he was 12 mths old..since the i have had 2 more...when i didnt get last one,i got all excited as i thought i was pregnant agai,but no go...anyhow on 26th july,i got what i thought was period..well its kept going and is still going as i type this!!!! WTF????..went to gp 2day as im drained to no end and he referred me to RWH and told me to go straight there..I rang them and they said not to rush and wait till 2morrow as they will probably refer me to outpatients clinic with a waiting list of 6 weeks-3 mths!!!!!! What the heck do i do???? do i go back to gp and demand a referral for ultrasound or gyno??? 15 days of pain and bleeding is beyond the joke...

    sorry for selfish post..i just need some guidance..DP doesnt help much,his theory is go to dr and get a tablet to stop it..yeah ok but doesnt explain whats going on....

    Hey everyone!

    Ok so only a quicky here as Annabelle has started waking just as I jumped on....

    Tan- OMG!!!! How exciting! This has to be the quickest pregnancy I have ever been a part of I wonder what it'll be like with TWO bubbas! And a little NAMELESS boy Have you thought of any yet, or will you wait till you see him?

    Hubba_Bubba- I would go back and demand a referral. It may just be the mini pill making you bleed. I was on it for about a month and never stopped bleeding so I went off it, doesn't work for all. Then I went on the pill and i bleed constantly with that also The doc changed the pill I was on, this one is stronger and now Im fine. Mind you I have been feeling sick since taking it Cant get it right!

    Dan- OMG! Im excited for you! Trying properly. Hope all works out and there's no need to see a FS. Was falling easy with Livvy?

    D- Thats fantastic news! Its a hard long road but really worth it hang in there, you're not alone

    Lulu- PND I always thought was when a woman hurts her child............I know now thats not true.
    I was diagnosed with it, but mine is towards Dp, poor bugger. I had to loo at it like this. Dont be sad you have it or depressed, be happy there is a reason you haven't been yourself and happy this 'nasty, depressed' you wont stick around, now you have treatment.
    You'll be ok Lulu

    Ok well my little one is chatting non stop and say very clear words. Shes amazing and running around everywhere. Dp and I are working on it, one day Im happy and love him the next everything he does is wrong. He has now said to me "There's no chance he will end things, he loves me to much and if Im a b!tch for the rest of my life then he'll just stick it out." Which to be honest with you has made me want to get better more then when he broke it off!
    Organising my 21st at the moment..............very expensive, though Im not paying for it, I feel bad spending to much so Im looking for the cheapest solutions.
    Well ladies it wasn't a quicky at all but Im sorry if I missed anyone, I'll be back later. xoxo

    I have been so slack in posting in this thread

    I will try to attempt to include everyone...

    Kass - Glad to hear you and DH are trying to work things out. Sometimes it just seems easier to end things but I suppose you have to try and remember things the way they used to be, and when the little ones grow up a little bit more, you can try and make things that way again. It is so easy to centre your life around baby and forget about everything else.

    Hubba - I would go on your gut instinct. I would probably have just gone down to the hossy and said that the doc referred you to there urgently and therefore you demand treatment. I can be a bit stubborn when it comes to things like that. Good luck and

    M - Glad to hear you and DH have worked things out. Sorry that AF arrived Maybe next month, the trying can't be all that bad

    Shell - I hear you on the saggy bb's. Glad it is normal and that I am not the only one Hope things slow down for you a bit soon.

    Dan - on the TTC. I hope it happens swiftly for you.

    Sangie - Woohoo on the house!!! How exciting!

    Lulu - A big cyber for you. PND is a very frustrating disease and it is miserable for everyone involved. I hope your treatment works quickly for you.

    Tan - Get those bags packed!!!!

    Wow that is everyone on this page. It seems we are missing a few along the way... What happened to Kirsten and Mel, who else. I have placenta brain grrrr.

    Anyway hello to everyone I have missed.

    I have been busy making the nursery into more of a big boys room although Noah and little bub will be sharing. I have just sewn up some pirate curtains and decorating in a black, red and white theme. I figure since it looks like another boy that a pirate theme will be fine. I have also been planting my seedlings for my veggie patch. Now I have to do the work to dig out the weeds and mark out my 4 sections for planting. That is likely to be a 3 day job though and it is far too cold to go out there!

    Noah is a big chatterbox. He now says mum, dad, hat, hot, light, up, sit, hug, yeah, hi and bubba which is a general word for everything else although he seems to say it most for babies. His walking is improving although it may have to do that from waking to sleeping he doesn't stop walking. Not much else to update on the Noah front....

    I think I am feeling bubs move around a bit more. I think the c/s has numbed me too much and that is why I don't feel him move around as much as Noah did. I am sure he is also quieter as well. I have spent the last week going though the baby names book trying to find boys names. I am going to narrow it down to a list of 50 for Juz to go through and cross off what he doesn't like. I hope there will be at least one that he will agree on. I wish it was a girl so there wouldn't be so much grief

    Anyway this is turning into a novel and I have a bum to change by the smell of things. Hope everyone is well!!!

    Thanks Kass, we had a scan at 16-17 weeks and the ultrasound specialist said it was a bit hard to see but she thinks it looks like another boy for us. I will know for sure in a month..

    Morning all! Wow suddenly everybody is here!!!

    Tan - I agree girl, get those bags packed!!!! Has Izzy moved to her new room yet?

    Sarah - Congrats on another boy hun, has it been confirmed or just your gut feeling?? I'm sure you guys will come up with the perfect name. A pirate theme sounds awesome. El is also a huge chatterbox!

    Lulu - how are things going hun? You know we are all here anytime you need to get things off your chest ok!

    D - I'm glad you and DH are trying to sort through it all, best of luck hunny, have been thinking of you! Wow 3 students, your house must be very busy at the moment.

    Kass - Yay for your 21st coming up, how exciting!!!!! What have you got planned?

    Shell - You have done an amazing job feeding Angus, you should be so proud of yourself. Don't beat yourself up about the housework hun, I think you do an amazing job with 3 kiddies and working too! Far out, I can barely keep up with one child sometimes!

    Dan - clever Livvy getting herself out of the bath! There is no way that Ellie would do that, she would stay in the bath all day if I let her! I'm sorry that AF arrived My job interview went well I think, they won't be deciding until next week though. I have another one tomorrow which I think sounds better anyway!

    Hubba - I would probably demand to be seen, you poor thing, 15 days of bleeding sounds awful

    Um can't remember who asked but our new house is 4 bed, 2 bath with a corner spa in my ensuite woo hoo! Also has my dream kitchen and a really nice outdoor area which I'm sure will see plenty of BBQ's! We get the place at the end of Sep but probably won't move until we do some renovations - going to replace all the floor coverings and paint. Very exciting but also scary - have to sort out the loan this week which will no doubt be very confusing! Anyone know of a good loan product feel free to let me know!

    Well written an essay so better go, have a lovely Monday all, sorry if I forgot anyone.

    Lis - congratulations on your new house. You must be so excited. VERY smart doing stuff before you move in!

    Danni - good luck with the conference. And tons of luck for working things out with Dale. Marriage is such hard work some times isn't it. I really hope you can work through your troubles and get to the happy place you were before.

    Shell - why do we do it to ourselves?? This ridiculous need to have everything perfect, and this stupid belief system that if its not we're a failure. That's so much of my problem too. If one more person tells me I just have to let it go I'm going to hit them though - so much easier said than done and when you've been a control freak for nearly 40 years you can't just change overnight! I wish you luck in your battles with it though :-)

    Hi to everyone else - sorry. Running out of time.

    Have had to stop my happy pills. Poor Elena was really badly affected by them and I can't sacrifice her comfort for my own. Am seeing my doctor again so hopefully we can work out a different plan of attack.

Why can't MIL fly over here from perth and take her to the melbourne shows..am I the only one who is seeing sense here??? Trouble is MIL just got a huge settlement of just of 1 mil and is flaunting her wealth and getting up my nose...arrgghhh!!! This happened while I was viewing rental properties and towing 2 kids in the rain...yes a rental cause MIL went back on her promise to buy a house for us 2 pay off!!! Major venting 2night from me..im so sorry..if I dare mention to DP,he thinks I just being a cow about his mummy...can we ever win???? Had ultrasound last nite as they had cancellation,it would appear I have 15 cysts on left ovary and she couldn't count them all on the right..so my PCOS problem seems 2 b a major factor in my bleeding prob according to sonographer..gotta see doc 2morrow for report....man,us women go through so much crap..yet males catch a cold and they are instantly dieing...go figure!!!! I b back 2morrow in a much happier mood and nice words...here's hoping u all have a better day then I did 2day xoxox

    hubba_bubba - Awww hun, sounds like you are having arough time, good on you for standing up to your MIL, there is NO way I'd let a 4 yr old on a plane by herself for a Dora concert. I hope you get your rental and health issues sorted out soon.

    Lulu - you are doing an amazing job - don't ever forget that..I hope you and your Dr can find a solution together for you....Are there any nearby support groups nearby that you could go to? A few girls at MG have struggled with PND and found the groups they attended helped quite a bit.

    Lis - You must still be so excited about your new house!! We are with the COmmonwealth, we hunted around 4 yrs ago when we bought this place, and we had a credit card with them and don't pay the fees with the package we are on, plus we get discounts on insurance etc. My siste rhad her home loan with the Police Credit Co-Op - (I have all my savings and debit card with them - NO fees!) anyway they are great too but I guess it depends on what type of loan you are after. Good luck with it all - check out all the big banks (life blood sucking as they are) and then also the little ones and co-ops!

    Welcome back Sarah! I didn't feel this little man REALLY move alot til around 23 weeks hun, and back then I was saying that I was sure that he wouldn't be as active as Izzy, we he isn't but he still keeps me up at night and gives me heaps of squirms and kicks during the day! Yay for the pirate theme - sounds too cute! I can't wait to move so I can really get stuck into decorating for both kids! 50 names! Far out - we can't come up with 5 we like individually! Poor nameless bubby. Sounds like Noah is going great guns hun, Izzy is walking/running/climbing like a true toddler - how do we stop them from breaking their neck after they climb up on the couch and try to run on it? Im not quick enough these days with my huge tummy. I have heart attacks on a daily basis that she is going to break a bone. Not much talking here though - well not much that makes sense ! She babbles all day and says dada/daddy and teddy clearly but everything else is made up!

    Kass - you spring chicken you! What are you planning for your 21st? Mine feels like a million years ago now! I have no idea what 2 bubs will be like Im guessing frantic, stressful, tiring but oh so rewarding! Still no names - we are hopeless. Im glad you and DP are working things out hun.

    D - I hope the conference goes well hun and hope you and DH can work through things. Wow for all your international students, you are one busy mama!

    Shell - I know!!! It is going SOO fast I can't believe it is only 7.5 weeks til my DD! Eeeeeek. In the night garden is amazing how addictive it is isn't it! Iz loves the Wiggles too so I might stock up on a few different DVD's of them plus ITNG and save them for feeding/restless times when bub comes. I never thought I would use TV like this but far out it is genuinely a lifesaver for me and her. She seems to need the quiet time in the arvo after her nap for 30 mins or so then goes back to her active self!

    Dan - Hope you are well my love!!!
    Whoever asked!! Pinky's book is great - it is really reassuring, there are no hard and fast rules/strategies(similar to Sleeping like a baby) but lots of info about why toddlers do what they do and how we can help them. I have relaxed heaps since Ive been reading it and noticed that her hitting has really dropped off, although we still get the tantrums where she sits down and throws her head back on the floor.. I feel so sorry for her because it must hurt and I realise she is just frustrated. Anyway, if you are going to get it the Huggies book club has a great member price, no postage and it arrives within about 3 days of ordering. I posted on Izzys blog about this stage of her life and i want it to be a happy, joyful time of discovery! No terrible twos in my house! She is just wonderful even with her stubbornness and tantys!

    to anyone I have missed. 7 weeks and 3days ladies -isn't that insane. I was 7 weeks and 5 days pg when I had my dating scan all those weeks ago. I was telling DH too that I have been quite focused on my VBAC etc but am now starting to actually think about AFTER the birth and the fact that there will be another little gorgeous person in my family. Im also trying to enjoy every part of this pregnancy because it will more than likely be my last one.

    **Vent warning!!**

    DH had a few hairy weeks and I broke down last night and let it all out. He makes me feel like Im boring because I do talk about babies etc so much but far out this is my life now. I also ran a training session at school a few weeks ago and a few people commented and said that I would be great at adult traning (which is what I did before I was a teacher ) and then told me that there are jobs in education going right now that I could go for starting in Feb...UUUmmmm that is EXACTLY what Id like to do when I go back full time once the bubs are older but I got a bit down about the sacrifices in my career that I have made that DH doesn't seem to appreciate. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't change it for the world, Izzy is such a joy and I love this little man so much without meeting him yet but I wish DH could understand how difficult it is to put my life and career on hold too. Anyway I think I got through his thick skull a bit. His solution is that I need a "hobby"... men. I didn't tell him that I have one and it's called BB!

    Right I'm off - I have a GF coming over for brekky before she starts work so Id better go get ready! Chat soon xoxox

    Happy Birthday Ashlee!!!!! Hope you have an awesome 21st hun!

    Tan - I know exactly what you mean and you have every right to have a break down. My DH also doesn't understand how hard it is to put my career on hold. Like you I absolutely love my time with Ellie and wouldn't have it any other way but I have made some pretty big sacrifices to do so - I studied 7 years to get where I am and its really tough when you see people get promoted over you because they can put it the time etc etc. DH is starting to understand I think but its taken a while. Don't get me wrong, Ellie is my number one priority and if we are blessed with another bub then I will do the same for him/her but it is also hard to sacrifice what I have worked so hard for. Thanks for your loan advice, we got pre-approval with our current lender for more money and I will be talking to some others tomorrow.

    Lulu - hope you can sort something out with your Dr. Is there other meds you could try? Have been thinking of you and your girls

    Hubba - Is your MIL nuts? No way I would send a 4 year old on a plane either! Good luck with finding a new place and hope your health issues get sorted too

    D - I'm glad that things are going well

    Hi to all you other lovely mummas, hope you are all well!

    Better go cos I'm at work. It's my last day but I have some temp work in another department for the next 3 months starting next week. It's also part-time so I'm taking it! It is with a much bigger department so more chance of something permanent after the 3 months! OMG I'm having such a good week - new house and new job!

    hubba_bubba - Hooray hun! Happy for you and if I was you I would buy the tickets myself too and then say I wanted to take her myself!

    Selfish one here - we have had the night from hell.... Poor Izzy is sick, runny nose, and her cough is that one that sounds like a dog?(Sounds awful but it's the only way I can describe it - all husky and deep but not whooping cough I don't think...maybe bronchitis?) Anyway - off work AGAIN - I feel so bad seeing as I finish next Friday but she was in our bed since 12:30- DH slept on the couch and went to work at 6 and didn't really sleep while she was in with me... I swear she talks in her sleep! So off to the Dr we go I finally got her back to her own cot at 6ish...then lets start up the chainsaws to cut TREES in our street at 730 and then mulch the branches .Far out the only day in the last few months that she would have slept longer and we both need it. Back later when I'm not cross-eyed from being up all night.
