    Hello all!! I hope you are all having a good weekend, I'm going well after that nasty appt thanks

    Vicky I'm 32.

    I have a hard time keeping up with personals... I get limited time on & sometimes I have to put my mod hat on & actually do some work around here

    I've found a way to get Jovie to sleep happily!!! I lay down with her in bed & within 5 minutes she's asleep. I did it yesterday & today and she's so happy laying in our bed. So I think we will get a cot & put it next to our bed at the level & graduate her into there now. So sad, such a short time in the hammock, but thats okay I'll sell it, after I'm sure she's liking the cot.

    34 here

    Christy: Cooper loves our bed too, will go to sleep so quickly during the day if we put him on there, in bassinett no chance, but he will sleep soundly all night in basinett, he has just decided its not for day sleeps i guess lol, glad its worked out though

    well i havent done much else, still so bloated from before i went out last night, nothing is helping it, very annoying

    talk later

    I'm also 34.

    Ella loved the soft mattress too. But now she loves her cot. As soon as she gets in there with a dummy...zzzzzzzz

    I've been using the swing with her but she's not really into it. Most of the time she throws up so i've decided to pack it away for the time being.

    Ella gets her second shots on Thursday. I know we've been through it before but i'm still nervous about it. This time i'll give her the panadol before the shots to help with the fever as its going to be quite warm here on the day.

    Vicky - I'm 35 so not far behind you and with only my first bub so far. Hoping we can squeeze in at least one (hoping 2) more before my eggs get to old. Are you going to brave another outing soon and leave DH with aston? My DH is going on a boy's golf w/e in a few weeks. I said ok as truthfully it won't make much difference to me as I deal with Logan on my own mostly anyway. I did make a deal, however, that if he gets a w/e away, I at least deserve a few hrs to myself whilst he looks after his son. We'll see how that one goes!

    Christy - WTF!!!! Bet you'll never see that paed again. Maybe you should consider a second opinion - I am sure there are plenty more understanding paeds out there.
    Glad you are getting the sleeping sorted for Jovie. I am keen to to the "side car" cot arrangement but can't until we move as our current bedroom won't fit the cot next to our bed.

    Gigi - I do the same as the others - feed and play then go out and hope we get some sleep somewhere in the travels - doesn't always work but then he doesn't sleep well at home anyway.
    Wrap DD if you need to -forget what others think.

    Belinda - well done on becoming a "yummy mummy". Bet all the younger ones would get a shock if they saw you pull out a boob to feed Cooper

    oops got to go - the man is awake and sooky!
    Got sleep school tommorrow so will see how that goes

    HI Girlie girls...I have been so flat out the last three days, with no end in sight til Wednesday...but its been great. I picked up my mum on Saturday morning, and DH took the big kids fishing, to meet up with us later that day at the resort she is staying at. It was lovely, as I was able to spend some time with mum, and she could fuss over her newest grandchild. Had a great day though, and then yesterday celebrated my mums 60th birthday. Aston had his first swim in the pool...I was so excited, lol, and he loved it. We dashed down to Big W to get him a swimsuit, little swimmer nappies, and a swim ring...lol. Today we went on a party pontoon up the river, and tomorrow we are off to Australia Zoo. Mum is talking about moving up here at the end of the year. which would be lovely.

    Thanks girls for sharing your ages with me - I told you I'd be the oldest in here! lol.

    Meredith - I hope you get your couple of hours darlin, because yes you definately deserve it! I haven't ventured out again leaving Aston with DH yet. I think it really knocked his self confidence around. But will do it again soon. I think its all a matter of timing. the witching hours is probably not the best time to go. Try for the morning next time...my have better success. Good luck at sleep school - I hope it offers some solutions for you hun.

    Ann - I'd be feeling nervous about the needles too...I hate them, and this is the third time round for me, so you would think I'd be used to it by now! I have a sneaking suspicion that DH won't volunteer to hold him this time round though. He is positive that Aston was cranky with him afterwards.lol...

    Aston has started dribbling so much! and CHEWING on my nipple! ouch!!! I swear it looks like his top teeth are coming down...but then they can come down, and go back up! He has been very fussy at the breast though, but I think that has more do with my having AF in, apparently the hormonal differences can change the taste. I hope it goes soon.

    Hi gigi - hope you doing ok darlin. If you ever feel like talking online, PM via messenger. i pretty sure my details are in my profile, otherwise let me know and I will pass them on.

    For that matter, if any of you want to "chat" feel free. I'm a good listener. take care all, and have a good week.

    His first swim! aw!!!!! so many firsts to look forward to!

    errrm, you are NOT the eldest (looks sidewards) i am, so chill, young 'un

    Breasxtfeeding and teething - i really wonder how you are meant to train your bub NOT to bite you etc, i am SOOOO dreading that phase, hoping it won't mean early weaning.

    Going to see GP about rota virus avoidance today, have heard so many conflicting reports on tv on what it costs so am finding out direct from gp once and for all. Apparently it's given at two, four and six months so as tiny bilby is three months, i need to find out if she's even allowed to have it a month late. It's alot of money but i feel i should find out more. Must be the over anxious older mother in me, poor tiny bilby is not much of a smiler, maybe i looked too serious, traumatic birth, two months of being immobile and pain, being stuck at home, unable to go out independently until i buy a car (so very limited socialisation or experiencing the world for her). I love her so much and am now healthy enough to enjoy her so she lots of smiles now (comparatively) so i hope to whatever, that she catches up (with the smiling). I didn't mean to be a bad role model for smiling (or lack of).

    Gigi I agree with Kim, you are not a bad role model, she's smiling! Thats fantastic

    Jovie has been dribbling heaps & she's always been pulling off the bb's well for the past 2 months she's done it but she's started chomping down a bit. Owie... I don't look forward to teeth either. I have heard discussions about it before and a lot of mum's tend to take them off once they bite & put them down so they associate biting with being taken away from the breast. I know thats probably what I'll try if it happens. Matilda didn't get teeth until she was 13 months so I'm hoping Jovie will be a late teether as well.

    Sounds like u had a great day Blanche!!!

    My mothers group was so bad i only went once...and now the leader keeps calling me to come back, but with a new group. I cant anyhow... i work on fridays now...and i feel it wasnt for me any ways. i have met new freinds other ways.

    But... wat id do to have a nice relaxing day with no child and no husband....just me and me! My friend comes down in 2 weeks and she is going to watch Chelsea for a bit while i go have my hair done so im looking forward to that!

    I have my u/s tmrw for M2.....and im so excited. MS still hasnt hit so its been a breeze as far as that goes... Chelsea has been good.... seems to be sleeping a bit more now since she started going to my friends....i think she is putting her into a routine?!! I have noticed now when she has her bottles she tends to play and giggle at me instead of drinking....lil monster!!

    Any how.... i hope ur all good!

    Chelsea was being a sticky beak the whole time....just like mum! She was so tired tho....we went when its normally her nap time...so thankfully she has gone down now. Having problems with her vomitting again.....its never after her bottle but some 1-3 hours later.....?? I see the nurse next week so ill see wat she makes of it.

    Yay kim, on the positive u/s. lol at chelsea sticky beaking. Hear you on the time out just for you - wouldn't it be lovely!! I'm seriously going to express some milk so I can go and play somewhere - anywhere.

    Blanche - your a busy girl aren't you.. brilliant that you have such a great mother's group though.

    Christy - how did everything go at the doctors with your blood test hun? How you doing in general? I peeked at your photos - Matilda is a doll, and Jovie had so much hair when she was born. Any recent ones for me to sticky beak at?

    Gigi - hugs hun - put away that whip that you keep flogging yourself with, and start patting yourself on the back instead. Sometimes I swear us mums are our own worst enemies. Motherhood is hard, and no amount of forewarning prepares you for the torrent of emotions that you constantly feel, and if the beginning was traumatic to start, all the more harder to get your head wrapped around. The only control you have is the day your in hun, so live each one, one at a time.

    how you doing meredith? any luck at sleep school?

    HI AJP Ann and belinda - hope all is well in your worlds - have you recovered from your night out yet belinda?

    Well its been flat out for me - we went to Australia Zoo yesterday - and it was bloody HOT - poor aston suffered for it, we ended up leaving at 3, after not seeing everything but it was just too hot. got an annual membership though, so we can go back again and again and again. so hopefully each time round we can see a little more.

    today i am doing as little as possible. nat had a sleep over at mum's, lauras turn tonight.

    take care all

    Kim i'm glad all went well with the scan, are you finding out the sex?? next scan??

    Sophie had here 4 month needles on wednesday, stuck her on the boob and only one little cry! had a temp though yesterday so gave some panadol. sophie is now only 5700g at 17 weeks and now under for everything so i'm on sustigen drinks and feeding 2 hourly during the day to try and get more into her though only feeing 5-6 times in 24 hours due to her long night sleeps, so getting weighed again on monday to see how much shes put on in the week, but if she has my metabolism then shes not going to be a big girl!! i'm off to mums for mums meeting on tuesday at my health centre for mums with PND so i'll see how that goes, i broke down with my nurse on monday at sophies appointment and we both think it could benefit me.

    hope all other bubs ae well. sorry will do personals later
