    Good Morning!

    Yeah, things are pretty much sorted with dh...I think we were both just grumpy and tired...I mean it wasn't a major drama or anything - just niggling...
    I've got my u/s this afternoon to check my placenta so I hope it's lifted - otherwise I have to go and see a specialist and may have to have a cs. Of course I just want a healthy bubba whichever way but I'd prefer natural if I can!!

    Tracey - Not long to go!! I don't blame you for being so excited! I would be too!

    hi guys.thanks for your replies about chantelle and the bath.i am better now but i did have a terrible time going to sleep that night as i just kept having flash backs.i didnt take my eyes off her last night inm the bath LOL! in saying that she was rather reluctant to get in but was fine as long as she could see me.
    kirstie.oh no! poor litlle gussy,please let us know what the outcome is.i just wish i was there to help support you through all of this.you truley are an amazing woman,big big hugs to you.
    melissa,oh wow,that is the 2nd time your dh has fallen asleep at the wheel.that is not good,it must worry you immensly when he is on the road.hope your brother manages things ok and i hope that your sister is not prg for her and the babies sake just for now.
    kristie,i have been a cow to grant,i cant manage sometimes and just spit the dummy at him all the time,im glad you guys are ok now.will you be letting him go away so often after dylan arrives.beleive me when he does get here you will not want dh to even be late home from work,tis bloody hard to juggle 2 babies,take it from me....
    i have just singed up with coles online to do my grocery shopping,you do it all online and they deliver it to you for $10.they should be here soon,wow tis sooo much easier,what a great idea,tis very hard to get down the street at the moment with 2 munchkins in tow.

    Hi!

    Nikki - So glad you're both ok now!! I told dh that I was happy for him to go away this weekend because that would be the last in a looonnnggg time! hehe. I agree I will need all his help and support when Dylan arrives! I told him to say goodbye to his arvo naps as well! hehehe. He'll just have to go to bed earlier!
    I think the problem is it's all the drinking and pot that goes on when they're away plus going to bed at god knows what hour that he comes home more drained and cranky than he went away. Thats the part the really urks me because he gets a break from all the responsibility and comes back worse!! If I had a weekend away I would come back so glad to see everyone and wanting to spend time together iykwim...The boys he goes away with though - the majority are single or seperated and just don't have that responsibility at all...GRR! Oh well...I'll just have to put my foot down...hehe.
    Sorry for crapping on..
    The shopping online sounds like a great idea!! I think that would work for me as well as I buy the same brands/food each week basically! I've told dh that after Dylan arrives we either all have to go or I'll go on the weekend and he can mind the kids...I'm not dragging them both out no way! I didn't take Louis food shopping on my own until about 7 or 8 months!! hehe.

    Kristie - I hope family life improves soon between you and your dh. Might be time to sit down and have a real heart to heart.

    Nikki - Chantelle will remember what's happened to her for a while, it may always stay with her in memory. But if you can turn a negative into a positive and be by her side when she's in there, she may in time forget about it, rather than get a phobia of being bathed. Cheer up, we all make mistakes, no one is perfect!

    Kristy - I hope things are sorted with Gus soon. He just seems like such a fragile little guy. He has the fighting spirit though, or he wouldn't be here. He's in good hands

    12 teeth here now! I'm still breastfeeding too...

    Kristie Good to see all sorted with DH, we all have our little issues now and then. I dont think we would be normal if we didnt.
    Melissa Yeah on still Bfing. We are still BFing here also but I think after our trip I will try and wean him off. He is only having a night feed so dont think it will be a big drama.
    Nikki Hope Chantelle sleeps well for you this afternoon. Poor little munchkin she really didnt know what she wanted today. Harry is such a good little boy, never fusses. Was great seeing you today, will miss you whilst I am away.
    Christie hope you are feeling ok, not long now. WIshing you a quick and easy labour
    Missy Iam glad that Callum is enjoying day care. He probably enjoying the new toys and kids to play with. It will be a great socialisation tool for him.
    Cindy How did the move go? Hope it went smoothly. Are you LOVING THE SPACE????
    Linda Hope you are doing well. How is Emma doing? WHat is she up to these days?

    Playgroup was good today we had a lady come in to talk about diff products, we got a few freebies very pleased. Jordan got to play with playdough which he liked, I am suprised he didnt eat any though.
    I got to show off his walking to Nikki (like a proud mum) he thinks he is the bees knees when he does it. He crashed on the way home as usual. I really love Tuesdays cause I know he will have a great sleep.
    I have booked in for a wax job thursday night (bikini and eyebrow) as I am a little ape like at the moment I am debating whether to have a brazallian or not? I still want something but wouldnt mind giving it a go. We will see how brave I get when I get there.
    Havent even started packing yet, so slack. Better do it thursday I guess and also a massive clean of the house so the house sitter doesnt think we live like animals.

    Take care XX

    Hi!

    How's the great photo of Dylan!!!! I can't believe how well they turned out!!! It's a bit hard to see but I think he's going to look just like Louis!!
    Anyway...everything is all good!! The placentas lifted and they measured him spot on for his dates! She said he's showing to be a good size - already 2kg!! Although I'll take that with a grain of salt...Anyway all is good so I'm very relieved!

    Tracey - Glad you guys had fun at playgroup!!! Thats great that he's proud of himself (and of course you too!)
    Go for the brazilian!!! Do it do it!! I've had them before- all off and you'll never go back!! especially if your going to be in bikinis for a week! (Plus that ttc will get off to a great start - hehehe!)

    hey all, am just about to have a big mug of raspberry leaf tea and off to bed..went for a big and very brisk walk around the shops today and got some pains which have since disappeared(but lasted for about 4 hours) and had pains last night too for a few hours but they disappeared when i lay down..but whatever they were they were definately doing something as i was getting alot of globby mucous discharge(sorry, probably waaaaaaaaaay tmi!!)so hopefully its a sign!!
    meg, can you email me your mob number and i'll sms you when zipper is born(don't know if ben will post on here)and maybe you could put up a birth announcement for me..also will hopefully be doing the early discharge program like i did with owen so if i do i'll be home 48 hrs after birth(but may be a bit full on here then i think!!)
    hope everyone is well, has taken me ages to read alll the post and am ready for bed so will try and do personals tomorrow(apologies for being so slack!!)

    night all xxoo

    Well Callum had the best time yesterday at daycare. He was fine all day untill he woke from his sleep as he forgot he was there. but got over it when he got up and started playing with the kids. They took photos of him playing and put them in this book they have so all the parents can see what they did. He did his first painting...its so cute. Ill take a photo of it and post it later. Well better go as we have swimming soon.

    take care

    Hi!

    Christie - Happy Anniversary!! Hope things are moving along for you!!

    Missy - I'm so glad Callum had a good time! At least you'll be able to relax a bit more next time!!

    Not much from me...I'm meant to be going out to dinner with old school friends tonight but it's all the way in Prahran..which I suppose isn't too far but I'm not sure about parking etc. I'm sure it will be fine once I get there but the thought of it is tiring me already! hehe. (I'm soo not social! hehe)
    About to head down the shops to get my medicare money back from the scan - cost me $160 and I think I get about $80-85 back...I'm going to go in and out though - no shopping for me!! hehe.
