    Thanks Kristie and Nikki, You are sweethearts! I appreciate your well wishes!!! I will try to pop in more often. I just spent a little while catching up on posts. I can't believe how quiet this part of the forum has been in the past couple of weeks. Wonder whether it's because there are so many of us that it seemed a bit tricky keeping up with the flood of posts in the first few weeks??

    I just booked in to my Ob and hospital. Very excited to be preggers again and if I'm honest quite shocked and a little scared that things won't go smoothly. He ha. My Ob said after Gussy was born there was a high risk of subsequent preterm deliveries and 2nd trimester miscarriages due to the shape of my uterus. Having said that he also said "every pregnancy is different" and that my uterus would have been stretched with Gussy's pregnancy so might not be so small next time around. Just to be safe however my Ob wants to monitor me more closely than he would regularly monitor a second pregnancy.

    Melissa - Hope your cysts can be dealt with. What a huge pain for you. I am so sorry to hear you have been unwell. Hope your specialists can get on top of it for you asap!

    Tracey - Am sooo jealous of your trip to Hawaii. I have been to Oahu and Maui a couple of times and absolutely love the warm relaxing atmosphere. For some reason Hawaii feels like a real beach holiday IFKNIM! Well done managing the long plane journeys so well!

    Rachael - Hope Milo is feeling better and that his little bottom is ok. I've found Orabase paste to be a wonder treatment for nappy rash. It's actually designed for mouth ulcers, but works really fast to cure the worst nappy rashes. Gus only seems to get a rash when he's teething. The acid poop seems to burn him within seconds of arriving. With Orabase we can get rid of it within hours and a particularly bad case within 24hours. It's kind of pricey though - about $12 for 15g but in my opinion it's well worth it.

    Missy - I just popped in to see your photos. Callum is gorgeous (and a very talented artist to!) he he.

    By the way - Nikki, Kristie, Cindy and Rachael - Hope you have fun today at the BB meet up. Wish I lived closer and could drop by to catch up with you all.

    Kirstie Congratulations on the pregnancy and also the good news on Gus's scan. Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy

    Well we are still having probs with Jordans sleep. He is currently screaming in his cot, he normally flakes it after playgroup so I dont know what to do. I think I will start vacumming so I cant hear him and hopefully he will clam himself and fall asleep. I dont think I will be going to work at this stage as I dont want to leave him with mum whilst he is this unsettled.
    Better go check on crying bubs, take care everyone, hope to come back later with some more personals.

    Congratulations Kirtsy, on the good news with Gus & the BFP!!

    Dianna - thanks for that. We had 3hours with no nappy on sautrday which helped a lot, and I am using pawpaw in between the strong nappy cream that I got at the chemist (cos thats only 2-3 times a day)

    I am hopeful that he is at the tail end now, this morning was the first time his dirty nappy has been anything like normal. SO I am keeping him off cows milk for another few days at least, probably a week, as every time I give him dairy he regresses.

    So i'm sorry I missed the picnic, I was really looking forward to it as well

    Kristy - Congrats It was great to hear the news about you being pg, hopefully there are no little hiccups with this one and things go better...

    Well, I have my appointment for the gyno. My mum is having her cysts removed a few days after my appointment, so hopefully I'm not too far behind. I have perked up alot since last I posted. I still feel zonked at the end of the day, but when you have an overactive angel/monster on your hands, what mum doesn't need a catnap... We went to our first playgroup today and we both enjoyed it!

    Gee it is realy quiet in here at the moment.
    Nikki wow on all the boys getting tips, I bet they do look spunky. What a bummer about the poor turn up for the meet up. Wish I could have made it but we are so desperate to get Jordan back to normal we are limiting his outings at the moment. OOps about Harrys sunburn, hope it gets better soon.
    Hawaii is gorgeous and all the people were lovely aswell. They all loved Jordan, guess because of his blue eyes blonde hair. The americans were also really nice, the ones on vacation. We found that everyone said hello to you, in the lift, at dinner. It was really lovely. The place it lush and green, the sun was out all the time and its very clean, no litter anywhere. The beach was gorgeous. A lot of homeless though we found, just sitting and sleeping on the footpaths. They did ask for money at times but were nice about it and not annoyed if you said no. I told DH they were the nicest homeless I had ever come across.

    Melissa glad you and Benjamin enjoyed playgroup. It really is a great couple hours out I think. Easy to let kids go and do their own thing without having to worry.

    RayRay glad Milo is feeling better

    Cindy How is the new house going and Tori? How are you feeling? hope you are getting some rest.

    Krisite Hope you are well also. Getting plenty of rest before Dylan arrives.

    Would really love to catch up with you all next week if you are able. I am free thursday if that suits. I am happy to travel whereever is easiest. Let me know if anyone can make it.

    Well last night Jordan went to sleep with no probs (so pleased) he woke up at 7.00am and I have just put him down for a sleep as he was geting cranky. A few little cries but nothing major so lets see if we are back on track. (fingers crossed)
    I am going to kill my puppies at the moment, they are constantly barking unless I bring them in the house and I dont want to as I cleaned it all yesterday and I want it fur free. I will just have to keep yelling at them I guess.
    I also wanted to mow the lawn today but realised I dont know how to start the lawn mover (that would help) I think I will ask my neighbour over to start it for me. It is so long the dogs are getting lost in it.

    Ok no other plans for today and no other news.

    Nikki - your werent joking the other day when you said it had been quiet in here!! My golly gosh.
    I so cant believe they havent used our gorgeous princess' photos in the target catalogue. How rude!!

    Again, it was great catching up on monday, cantbeliev we are seeing eachother again this weekend too, its becoming a habit, a good one though!!

    Tracey - woo hoo on almost TTC again! On the night feed, i actually startd giving tori a straw cup with milk and she still has it and takes it to bed, not that she always drinks it but its there for her if she hasnt filled up enough at tea!
    Sounds like you hada great trip. Catn wait to see photos, now that you are back we are going to have to organise another catch up date soon, Are you going to Kristies on sunday? Maybe we can organise something then? I dont mind having everyone at my place again if you can handle the drive.

    Looks like we will be online in the next few days which will be fantastic, i have some of the best photos to email around from the last few weeks!

    Well, i must do some work, will check in again later though.
    Oh, looks like i will be tori less on sunday, al wants to take her swimming sunday arvo so that will be nice for them and also me to have some time without her!

    Hi.

    Glad Hawaii was good Tracey!

    Melissa, good like with the GYN appointment.

    No plans yet for us for the weekend. Will have to think of something fun. I'm a bit dubious about swimming (at the local pool anyway), as I think thats where Milo picked up his bug

    How tall are your bubs? I measured Milo and he's about 83cm which I though was tall for 15months. I did it twice, and had Neil and mum do it again, cos at his 12month check he was only 77cm!

    Hi!

    Not much news from me...Had my dr's appointment yesterday and all is well. Measuring 33cm and bp good. Dylans still head down...Last night was watching a dvd with dh and had about 8-10 pains in 2 hours!! I assume they're just bh but they come on just like a contraction - just a really mild one though...I hope I'm in for a quicker labour if I'm going to keep having all these pains now!
    Louis is good! He's being a bit cheeky at the moment and taking at least an hour to get to bed. He's not cranky but just jumping around in his cot talking to all his toys in his shelf! It is funny but he's a little terror! hehe.

    Tracey - I'm glad Jordan seems to be settling down with his sleeps! It sounds like hawaii was great! Good luck mowing the lawn! I've never attempted it and hopefully I never will - hehehe!

    Kirsty - I'm sure things will go better this time! It will be good to have more appointments though so you can relax a little more...

    Rachael - I hope Milo's all better now!! It's not nice when they get sick. We'll have to catch up next time! Louis is a shorty - I'm not sure what height he is now - at 12m he was only 73.5cm! He's probably about 80cm now?? I'll find out in another few weeks at his check up.

    Melissa - Hope your appointment went well!!

    Nikki - LOl on giving all the boys tips!! I bet they all felt pretty cool going to school today!! How cute Chantelle having dress ups!! I hope you took photos!! Poor harry getting burnt - geez - I didn't see that coming - it looked like he was in the shade the whole time!!

    Cindy - Ooh I can't wait to see some of those photos!! It will be so handy when you have the computer set up at home again!! At least you can just relax on Sunday and it will be nice for Al and Tori to have some time together!

    I'm free most of the time for a meet up! Just let me know the details!!

    Sounds good to me. the only prob for me is that I am working full time, so weekdays are harder (though I can wangle it sometimes!)

    Playcenter sounds good! I have not been to one. Also I don't mind going to people houses or having people at mine. Croydon is not that far, its just near ringwood right? I go there all the time to visit a GF from uni.

    Kristie - The app is not until the 10th of April, so it's still a little way away yet.

    Nikki = Ouch on little Harry's sunburn...

    Very soon, our little darlings will be going for their 18 month needles. I'd like to see Benjamin's weight and height changes since his last lot of needles.

    Melissa, Glad to hear you're feeling a little less zonked. Let's hope you are feeling MUCH better soon. When you said your mum has her cysts removed, is that with a laser? Fingers and toes crossed you can have yours taken care off asap after your appointment. Can you take time off work as needed while you're not feeling well? What did you do this week at playgroup? F and I haven't been to one before. Keep meaning to but don't seem to have the time or energy. Must prioritise it as a few of the medical people we see say that F would get lots out of it.

    Nikki, Aren't you clever little miss hairdresser! You'll have to post a picture onto your website of their new hairstyles. LMAO at the thought of C dressed in a nurses costume. Definitely will need to get that on film!!! We have a toy medical bag that we use to desensitise Gussy to things like taking BP, temperature, stethiscope, auriscope (sp?). Works a treat. He plays doctors and nurses with his stuffed toys Big Bird, Ernie and Bert. Tis sooooo cute to watch. He knows the temperature is taken somewhere below his eyes but doesn't seem too realise it's meant to go under his armpits. So he keeps putting it under his chin and his toy's chins. Then he kind of says "birdie good boy" he he. Every time I try to get the camera out he to take a picture he stops doing it so I haven't managed to get a photo so far. Ahhh... BTW Great idea about the toy library. They are so good! Means you don't have to clutter up your house/yard with big pieces of plastic that they only like for a short while. We're wait-listed for a cubby house at the moment. Seems to be super popular though so could be a long wait.

    Tracey, sounds like you're getting Jordan back on track sleep wise. Aren't you a clever mumma. BTW Huge congratulations on your BF efforts. I am really impressed!! How exciting that you're getting ready to start trying to conceive.

    Rachel, Can you go swimming at the beach or is it to far. Forgive my geographical ignorance! he he. Fergus is a shorty. Today we weighed and measured him while at the paed. He's put on masses of weight and grown quite a bit (for him), but is still below the 3rd percentile. He's 73cm and 8.28kg.

    Kristie, Great to hear your check-up went well. Dylan is a clever boy keeping his head down. I have heard a few people say that they had more BH's with their subsequent pregnancies than with the first and that their labours were shorter. Fingers crossed that it's the same for you (the short labour part anyway)!

    Cindy, Congratulations on the move. Must be fab to be in your own place. How frustrating for you to have to wait a while for the internet connection. Let's hope it's up and running soon for you.

    Not much to report here. As part of F's physio and occupational therapy has been playing with different textures to try to desensitise him (in case his not eating is related to a texture fear). One of things we have to do is to get him to play with an electric toothbrush. He LOVES LOVES LOVES it. But I think we have created a problem for ourselves. I keep catching him with it down his nappy! Aghhhh sooo not the right thing for a toddler to be doing! I'm sure the child protection agency would be after me if they could see it! he he. Better move onto a new game and confiscate the toothbrush!

    Hi!

    Rachael - Yep - Croydons about 5-10min further out than Ringwood...I'm sure we'll be able to work something out!

    Melissa - Ooh I can't wait as well!! I'll be really keen to see how he's going! Hopefully the immunisations aren't too bad...It's after this one that we can get the $220 rebate from the government!! I'm going to put it towards stuff for Louis' big bed!!

    Kirsty - Gus sounds sooo cute - cheeky boy with the toothbrush!! I've noticed Louis start to feed his toys now and also offer them drinks of water from his bottle!
    How are you feeling??

    Nikki - Ooh can't wait to see the photo! hehe.

    Not much from me...my brother & his gf came over tonight and tired Louis out so he went straight to sleep - hehe (although it was after 8pm!!)
