    Lis - again , and house-hunting sounds like the perfect distraction... which suburbs are you looking at?? (If you don't mind me being a nosy parker! ) I grew up in Croydon and would love to move back to Croydon Hills but DH prefers to be closer to the city and transport etc (God knows why when he never takes PT anywhere anyway!) but we are looking at Heathmont possibly now as well. Good luck with it hun.

    Shell - you are a super mum doing those hours with 3 kidlets... Eat up your veg and fruit babe and make sure you take some vitamins so you don't get sick again....



    Mabello- hun.... How is the painting and prep going for your new "kids"! You must be pretty excited! When do they arrive?

    Lulu - you are my inspiration woman! I think you are doing an amazing job with the girls!!! Nothing wrong with being a book club nerd, Im not one but I am a book nerd!!!

    Kass - Glad you are working through things and yep you are right hun! DH and I have been together for 11 years, married for 5 (next week ) and we are still working on improving our marriage and now our family life! I don't think it ever ends!

    Dan - how is Liv going?? Has her teething eased up a bit?? Not too sure about the nappy rash? Could you let her go nappy free for a bit with just some little pants on and get the fresh air onto it?? Izzy has never really had it bad at all and we haven't used anything at all for months, and now if it does come up a bit red we use the Aromababy Barrier Balm. Izzy is great! I have posted some pics in my gallery from yesterday, we had a birthday party and she was dressed as a fairy! Have you POAS yet???

    Jan - Great to hear from you! Izzy talks in her own language and everything she copies from us sounds the same - buh for ball bear etc... dada for chair, daddy, mummy etc! and Mama when she feels like it! We are still on 2 day naps here, she gets sooooo tired if she only has one nap a day. Her morning nap is usually at around 10ish for 1-2 hours (usually 2) and afternoons are the same but usually 1 1/2 hours. She gets up at around 8ish most days and is up til 7.

    to everyone I've missed!

    Well I have some girls coming over for a Tupperware party today! Hopefully will get a few nice freebies! Also have posted some pics in my gallery of Izzy from the party we went to yesterday! She looked soooo cute! My big girl! She is so cuddly right now, loves blowing kisses and cuddles her teddies! AWWWWwwww I've said it every month but this age is the BEST!!
    Have a great Sunday my lovelies!

    Tan - that's a beautiful belly you've got there. Good luck with the tupperware party - hope you get lots of free goodies.

    Lis & Tan - just the thought of house hunting exhausts me. We built our house and when we moved in last February I told DH I was never moving again - he'd have to carry me out in a wooden box. These days with two little girls I'm dreaming up new house designs on a few acres out of town. I grew up riding horses and would love for my girls to do it too - it certainly kept me out of trouble with boys, drinking, drugs etc. Not sure DH is happy about it though, but I'm swaying him with the idea of keeping boys away for a bit longer. The poor love is already stressing about it!

    Lis - hope you're feeling better soon.

    Danni - still got everything crossed you get a BFP this month. Definitely get Mason back in the poor. Izzy has so much fun.

    Shell - my God you work hard woman. Try and get some rest in there and like Tan says, eat well!!

    Don't know what's going on but its been hard work around here lately. Izzy woke up yesterday so incredibly clingy - I literally couldn't put her down all day and it took forever to get her to bed last night. Combine that with Elena feeling lousy after her vaccinations and it was not a happy (or quiet!) house. Still, we've got tons of yummy stuff to eat in our misery - my girlfriend and her hubby who were supposed to come over yesterday after the book club nerds left couldn't make it so there's SO much left over. Yummmmmmmm.

    Aawww Tan Izzy looks so cute all dressed up for the party! Looks likes she had a great time! How did your tupperware party go? Yes Croydon Hills is on our list. We are hoping to stay fairly close to where we are now so croydon, mooroolbark, kilsyth, lilydale are all on our list. Yeah DH originally wanted to move closer to city too but we can't get very much for our money if we go too much closer! Besides I love this area and all our family/friends are close which is great!

    Shell sometimes its hopeless trying to clean up with a toddler around, LOL somedays I give up.

    Lulu hope your girls have settled down for you hun. The thought of moving makes me feel ill, I am not looking forward to that part at all and I've already told DH that we will be staying put FOREVER after this move! Glad my DH isn't the only one worried about 'boys' already! He already talks of getting a shotgun and that all potential boyfriends have to sit before a 'panel' consisting of himself of course and all of Elena's uncles. Daddy's little girls hey?

    Dan how are you going? Fingers crossed for you this month!

    D fingers crossed for you too hun. I know it can be hard when people around you are falling pg, been there believe me! It will be your turn soon, I'm sure of it........!

    Kass, Ash and anyone I missed, hope you are all having a nice weekend.

    Gotta go, still a household of germs here and I'm well and truly over it. Bring on better health and warmer days please!!!!!

    Frantically been cleaning, painting and reorganising our house ready for our first "daughter" to arrive on Tuesday morning. Im very excited! then our second one arrives a week later.

    Dan: i really hope it was just too early. I will be testing in the morning before I go to the fertility specialist in the afternoon. Not sure why I am going...or what im going to say..... but im going nonetheless

    Ha, glad you cleared that up D, I too was wondering who your new "kids" were!! How exciting, should be fun! Not sure whether I would send my 10yr old across the world though???

    Anyway, just flying by to say hi, am off to work....again...!! Have so many bills due, am trying to work as many shifts as I can. Is not too bad, Mum has them from 2.30pm till about 6pm, then DH picks them up and brings them home, then I get home about 10pm. So Mum is not bombarded with 3 kiddies all day!!! Hopefully have tomorrow off to catch up prop!!

    Dan - so sorry. Hoping like the others have said you were just a bit early.

    I've had a pretty awful few days and spent a lot of time in tears. Elena has been really grouchy since having her vaccinations last week and I have no idea what is wrong with Isabelle but she has been a clingy, whingy nightmare. My poor girls have both been very demanding and there just hasn't been enough of me to go around. Poor DH hasn't known who to look after first over the last few days. I went to my folks for the day today and I think DH was very relieved to see us all leave him in peace this morning! The up side is that El seems to be getting a bit of consistency with her night feeds. I give her a feed around 10.30 pm and she seems to wake around 4am, and then again about 7.30 or so. Pretty civilised. Can't wait for that 4am sleep to disappear but I have a feeling that won't happen for some time. Sorry for yet another selfish, whinging post.

    Hey ladies!

    Lulu- Though things are still a little all up in the air, it does seem as though the fog is clearing a little. You just keep being the fantastic mummy that you are
    Annabelles teeth have settled but she is still beng a little bit of a rat bag.

    Mabello- Why is your SIL irresponsible? I think I missed that story Your baby will come when he/she thinks the time is right. Just keep trying it'll happen
    Wow you'll have you hands full soon with those extra bodies running around!

    Tan- Yay for the tupperware party! Im having one on the 30th! I want freebies!

    Dan- Sorry about you BFN

    Ok so not much happening here. Still trying to get missy back into her routine, or a new one since her teething! Other then that I also love this age! We have such a close bond and she always wants to snuggel. LAtely around 3am-4am she's been hoping into bed with us. DP said he loves getting snuggles when he wakes at 5am for work.
    Have a question for you nurses out there. I have been wanting to get started on nursing for a while now, what is your best advice as I really want to do midwifery.

    Dan for your BFN babe ... that really does suck...

    Kass - It is such a fun age isn't it! I love watching her learn new things and explore and climb!

    Lulu- Hang in there hun.. I know it's easy to say and I will be on the other side of the fence in a few months time but it will pass. Poor El -those bl@@dy needles are awful...and my Izzy is really demanding and grizzly and it's almos like she's bored? How can a 13mth old with a house full of toys and 2 parents home right now on holidays, playing with her practically every minute of the day be bored FFS..... Anyway - you are doing a fantastic job and Elena's night sleeps sound spot on hun, I know what you mean about wanting the 4am feed to disappear but that really is great for such a little tyke.

    Shell - Hope you are looking after yourself hun - I hear you on the bills piling up - DH has been home for 3 weeks and finally rang Centrelink the other day, got an appointment and that afternoon got a call to start a job on Monday for 5-6 weeks again... thank god for that!

    D- Hope it is all going well with your adopted kiddies hun! How good are you!!

    Lis - Hope you and El are doing well too hun - how is househunting going??

    Well we are doing well - we are 12 hour into Operation Banish the Dummy though so have had a bit of a hairy night but not as bad as I thought.... She woke up at 430 grizzled, we caved and gave her her morning bottle a bit early at 5 and she grizzled for another 30 mins then slept til 830..... Just put her down for her morning nap and it was 20 mins of grizzling and I went in twice to resettle and give her teddy back that she threw out of the cot i anger She's now asleep without it so a good start I hope. I didn't mind her having it during her day sleep so much but she got used to it at night and her sleep at night has been deteriorating more and more so we had to do it.

    I have my GTT test tomorrow and my Dr appointment Friday morning - Prepare for battle!!!!!! Heehee! Have to go into school and do some work today - the joys, I hate going in on the holidays, makes me feel like they are already over.

    Ok I'm off to make pikelets! Mmmmmm have a great day ladies!

    D - thanks for clearing that up lol! How nice of you to take in two students. I'm sure it will be an awesome experience for all of you. How long are they staying?

    Shell - I hear ya on the bills, why do they always seem to come at once???? Hope you are taking care of yourself.

    Lulu - hopefully this phase passes soon. Elena's night feeds/sleeps are great!! Hope you are finding time to take care of yourself too, make sure you are eating your vegies ok!

    Tan - best of luck with the GTT test tomorrow, eeeekk I hated that. I'm sure you are well and truly prepared for your doctor's appointment - go tell em exactly how it is!! We only use the dummy for sleeping too and I'm already worried about the day when we try to banish it. We have a list of houses to look at this weekend (if we are all feeling better!) so fingers crossed we find a good one. But in our experience so far, they always look better in the pics than in real life. YUM pikelets!

    Kass - hope Annabelle is settling down after teething. I adore this age too! Elena is learning new words so quickly now, I swear everyday I hear something new come out of her mouth. So cute.......!

    Dan - sorry about your bfn hun, but onwards and upwards to next month

    Well I'm at work and a bit quiet today so thought I'd sneak on here for a bit before lunch! I'm still feeling pretty awful but have no sick leave left so here I am. Thank god this is my last working day of the week. I'm planning to veg with my girl tomorrow!

    Hi everyone!! We must all be busy Mum's, our thread keeps disappearing off the first page!! I have had a few days off work which is nice, go back tomorrow. Night shift though, so that sux. Least I should get a good pay next week!! Has to be something good at the end of all these early mornings and late nights!!!

    Dan - how did you go? Did AF appear? Fingers crossed for you....
    Tan - how did your GTT go? I hated them, used to make me sooo nauseus - yuck!! How has the dummy banishing gone? I could not imagine taking Angus's off him, we would have WW3!!! He loves his dummy, and has them stashed all over the house. He likes 2 at a time, one in his mouth and one in his hand. strange boy of mine!!
    Lulu - Gosh, I wish I lived closer to come have a coffee and assure you things will get better. Did you end up seeing a LC about the BF??? I honestly think you are doing an amazing job, and your girls will thank you down the track, they will be able to grow up and be best of friends being so close in age. My sis and I are 3 yrs apart, but still get on great. Never doubt yourself, you are one amazing Mum!
    Lis - you feeling any better? Hope you are!
    Kass - not sure what uni's do just a midwifery course, but I am sure they have started it in As now. Normally, you have to do a bach of nursing which is 3 yrs, then do your midwifery which is 2 yrs. Now I am sure you can do a direct entry midwifery course which makes you a midwife, think it is 3yrs?? You just have to be confident you don't want to do any other type of nursing cause you can only ever work as a midwife iykwim..... not in general nursing areas. Does that make sense???? If you are sure you only want to be a midwife, google direct entry midwife and see how you go. Good Luck!!! If you want to be able to work in all areas of nursing - then you want a Bachelor of Nursing Science..... HTH!!
    Sarah - how is the morning sickness now?? Hope you get to enjoy your last few weeks with your fam!

    ANyway, my boy's sleeping is going from bad to worse. He is just horrendous. Tosses and turns most of the night, cries, screams, you name it. I am so exhausted. I hate leaving him cry but I think I have to just do it for my own sanity. DH is being kept awake also, and with both of us working we are all walking zombies. This morning he wanted to get p at 5am, I just couldn't do it... Then, during the day he is like a tornado. Into everything. I hardly get a break and I know I am turning into a grumpy Mummy. Think I need a hobby, that doesnt include washing/cooking/cleaning/kids!!!!

    Anyway, vent over, I better get brekkie for all these kiddies. Dh wants me to go shopping for him (big mistake sending me shopping haha), he wants some thermals!!! It is getting freezing up here!! So I better get the poor guy some, since he does work hard!!

    Take care everyone!! xx

    Hey Everyone!!! Just a quck one today as Annabelle has just woken up from her all night sleep!!!!

    Shell- Thanx very much for your help! I was speking to a helath nurse yesterday at sleep school and she said I would make a great health nurse......so something to think about I guess
    Now with sleeping, I went to sleep school yesterday!!!! I cant believe it!!!! Annabelle was getting terrible at sleep plus she is teething (when is she not )
    Last nght put her to bed at 8:30pm, as we went to pizza hut for dinner (yuk!) she slept till 1:00am, and I thought see sleep school hasn't worked, then I got her cozy again and of course she sooked. But I was going to be strong and leave her those 3mins to settle herself. But there was no need to as she fell asleep in 1min:30sec! And has just woken! Its 10:00am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Have a great weekend ladies and bubbas. Its Clint and my annerversery weekend so, EXCITING!!!!

    Aww congrats Kass!!! It is our 5 year anniversary today too!! Have a great day!!

    Shell - we are dummy free! She wasn't that hooked on them, she would actually wake from a nap and hold it out for us to take from her! She only really used them in her cot and that's it but at night she was waking really frequently and we think she was losing it - waking and crying, finding it but not able to go back to sleep for some reason. Her night sleeps have settled heaps and she goes to sleep for her day naps without a grizzle now again too thank goodness. I just give her a taggies blankie or teddy (different ones!) each day to hold while she falls asleep. the GTT was hideous again. i wasn't as sick as I was with Izzy but was feeling pretty faint and lightheaded when i left because I was there for 3 hours - got home at 1 and hadn't eaten a thing all morning. Results for that and my anti-bodies were all good!

    Lis - Hope the househunting has gone well this weekend!!!! Hope you are feeling better too and your day at home with El was just what you needed.

    Well I had my Dr appointment - all went pretty well. My c/s is booked for 40 +8-10 days - hopefully more like 10 and I go into labour waaaay before that! Other BAC protocols that we chatted about I am pretty happy with so far and they seem ok about most of it..... Im really happy with my doula too so I know I will be well supported when its showtime!

    Bub is transerse right now though - he'd better not get too comfy though I tell ya! I'e worked too hard for this VBAC only to have him change all my plans because he doesn't know where the exit door is!

    Ok off to make pikelets again - it was scones yesterday - going through some premature baking nesting!

    Af arrived here yesterday morning.

    Have to finish painting the last bedroom ready for our little korean girl who arrives on Monday. Our chinese girl is great! Mason loves her to death...it is so cute watching him flirt and show off every time she can see him!
