    me first! ha ha

    OK. Mum usually looks after Milo on tuesdays, so I told her last night that I was planning to take him to the CCF on Tuesday after his paed. appt. Thinking she would enjoy the afternoon to herself..

    She asked what time are you picking me up?

    I said I was meeting the BB girls there, and she said oh I hope they don't think I'm too lax with Milo...one of the mums at playgroup gave me a dirty look when he fell over and I said 'up you get Milo, you're ok, instead of running over to him and freaking out'

    So does anyone mind overly if she comes, I think she will be upset if I say she can't.

    Hi!

    Rachael - Of course not!!! I think it's wonderful that your mum wants to come! I think you'll find that we're all very relaxed - I know I say the same thing to Louis and try not to wrap him in cotton wool toooo much! hehehe.

    Missy - Hi!! Hope you get a chance to have a sleep. Aaah I'd die if Louis woke up at 5am...He's still up around 8am at the moment...I wonder how daylight savings will effect him...

    Missy - When Dh is home Benjamin is up at 5am, when it's just the 2 of us it's 7:30am. This morning was one of those 5am mornings...

    Rayray - Gotta love mums

    Took Benjamin to meet his daycare teacher and the other munchkins there. Found out that my diabetes doctor has a little boy in the same group. All along I thought she lived in Brisbane, but apparently not. Benjamin thought it might be nice to fill his nappy while we were there too, and it was a ripe one...YUK! The lady that runs the class learnt not to put anything like wipes or gloves next to him today either because he trashed the containers and threw her gloves on the floor. We so tried not to laugh. Anyhow, he'll fit in fine, because no sooner did we get in the door he was playing happily.

    Great news Melissa! It's certainly a relief when the settle in nicely like that! Bugger at being up at 5am as well...

    Got to wake dh up and get ready for the movies...

    Had a bit of a reality check today with the accident at burnley tunnel. Dh has been working out that way for a while now and travels through at pretty much any time depending on the work they've got on...anyway all is well with him - just happy to have him home tonight!!

    Just a really quick post. We've got some of my DH's friends over for dinner so I'm being rude. he he. Haven't read any posts so won't be able to do personals just now. Just letting you know I had my u/s today. No heartbeat so far. Not sure whether that means I'm just less preggers than we thought or whether it's the effect of the bleeding. Anyhoo need to have a repeat scan in a week or two. Just wanted to give you a little update because my DH won't tell anyone we're preggers in case this bleeding means an imminent m/c. Aaghhh crazy boy.

    Will pop in again over the weekend. xx

    me and corey went to the casino,did some shopping at the surf shop,had some dinner and then spent $60 at galactic circus,it is a game place.we had fun and walked along the southbank boulevard also,had a great time together.
    racheal,that would be great if your mum came,i love mums as i dont have one.whatch out i might adopt her.
    well i have to say that it looks like the other girls have officially left this forum,seems that there is only oct buddies left and missy and racheal,which buddies group were you 2 from before the merge.

    Hi!

    Had a nice night out last night! Watched Wild hogs which was pretty funny. Got home at around 9.30 and mum was on the phone. I tidied up, put washing away, got ready for bed, hopped in bed - and she was still on the phone!! Dh ended up calling her mobile to be funny so she got the hint! hehehe.
    Having a quiet weekend which will be nice! It was so good to wake up to some rain this morning...had a couple of friends drop in with some pressies for Dylan which was nice. I just gave them to Louis to open up so he had fun!

    Kirsty - I sooo hope it just means that your not along far enough! What an anxious wait now...hope the time goes quickly...Big hugs

    Missy - Have fun watching Melissa at soccer. As long as she's having fun thats all that matters!

    Nikki - Soo glad the kids had fun at the concert. Sounds like you had a great night as well. I've taken my niece and nephew to galactic circus and it's great! It must have been great to spend some one on one time with Corey!
    Yeah, I agree - it looks like we scard almost everyone off! hehe. I guess it was just too busy for some!
    Gosh Nikki you are so busy running the kids around...I'd be starting to drop hints for mothers day (weekend at a spa perhaps?? hehe)

    Hi Ladies
    I think we have scared all the others off LOL, we are such a scary bunch of ladies

    Kirsty I really hope all is well with bubs. I have everything crossed for you.
    Krisite LOL about your mum being on the phone all that time. Sounds like my mum. Glad you had a nice night out to
    Nikki you are the mum of the year I think. I dont know how you cope with all the kids committments etc and have time for yourself.
    Missy Yeah on Melissa playing soccer, I cant wait for Jordan to play a sport. Doesnt matter if they arent a good team aslong as he is having fun.

    Well this weekend I am trying to get some BDing in as I think I am due to O anytime soon. Would love to catch that egg this month.
    Be back later have some housework to do

    Hi!

    Ooh Trace good luck!!!
    I also look forward to our kids doing some sports! Or more just something that really interests them - sports,music etc...
    Just had a little snooze! Louis had a big sleep this afternoon and after a really broken sleep with an upset tummy I really needed it. Was cross at dh though because he's just on the computer and still I had to wake up for a snooze to get Louis out of his room..grrr!! (especially since I let him sleep in until 12.45pm!!!!!!)
    Off to do some food shopping now...I think it might be take away for us now that it's so late...I never feel like cooking after shopping! Although I'm dying to make a choccy cake or something...

    I'M BACK.................. Thats right my lovelies, i am back in the world of the world wide web!! I have been missing you guys so much.

    I dont really have much to say at this point as i am still trying to get the computer set up properly but i wanted to say i will be there tuesday. i have moved my midwife appointment to thursday so i can come, so you are not getting away from me! I was going to ask too if you minded if i invite my other friend nikki to tuesday? Kristie and nikki you met her with charlie and cooper at the bbq at my place.

    Well, i must get going, got so much to do today and i think i am nesting too, the house is really not that bad but it is stressing me so while i am trying to get this computer set up I am also cleaning everything! I think i actually need a sleep, oh how do you priorotise??

    Sorry for no personals today, i havent even read everything I have missed yet. I hope everyone is going well. I'm so glad to be back in the land of bellybelly.

    Default Any advice on this issue would be great.

    Hello Ladies,
    I hope that you are all doing well. I have been so busy with work and home that I haven’t had a minute to myself.
    Jett is still sick with a middle ear infection. I just want to ask anyone if they are having a lot with their bubba’s. Jett has had 6 in 6 months. My GP (who was my pregnancy doctor) said that 13 per year is normal. I just don’t know how I feel about going through all of this another 7 times this year, or maybe more???
    Any advice on this issue would be great.
    Kristie – I saw Wild Hogs the other day and DH and I both loved it too.
    Melissa – If only Jett was like that when I took him to daycare. He cries and it breaks my heart, but he is fine soon after I leave.
    Tracey – Good luck with the baby making!!

    Hi!

    Woohoo Cindy!! You're finally back online!! I'm not nesting I'm just really really cranky! hehe. Lost a bit of my plug yesterday and have had a really heavy pressure in my lower belly so not quite sure whats happening there...Not feeling too many symptoms today though. I seem to get them for a couple of days and then they disappear for a week. Wouldn't hurt bubba to wait another couple of weeks anyway...
    That will be great your friend can make it - the more the merrier!! Hope you get everything cleaned that you want! Basic housework is my goal for the day...hehe!

    Dani - Sorry I can't help - Louis hasn't ever had one! (touch wood!) Dh's cousins little boy gets them a lot...It must be luck of the draw unfortunately. It must be hard to see him so miserable though...Louis just gets colds!

    How funny does it feel with daylight savings over!! It's going to be such a long day! hehehe. Luckily it hasn't mucked Louis up really as he was sleeping in until 8am anyway so he was up at around 7.30am new time this morning. I can handle that!
    K - better stop putting off this housework...

    Well, we were brave and went to the pool yesterday (well DH and Milo went in anyway, I was a spectator). Fingers crossed everything is OK.
    Milo kept staring at the little girls at the pool! DH got really embarrassed.

    Dani - I put a reply in your other post, but maybe get a second opinion or even see a naturopath if you want to try something a bit more gentle?

    Kirsty, will be thinking of you, I truly hope everythings OK.

    Tracey - Good Luck!


    We took Milo to see a parade today (local community festival) and there were a lot of emergency vehicles there. Milo LOVES trucks, so we was well excited by it all!

    Hope everyone else is well.

    Cindy welcome back, its great to have you back again. LOL at the nesting. You can come and nest here if you like, plenty to do The more the merrier if you want to bring your friend along.
    Kristy WOW at loosing some of your plug. It was only 2 days between me loosing plug with Jordan and waters breaking so I wonder if you are coming early again???????
    Rachael LOL at Milo looking at all the girls, Cant wait to meet him and you ofcourse.
    Dani Jordan has only had 1 ear infection so I dont really know. I would think 13 is excessive. I know they tend to happen when they cut teeth. If you are worried maybe get a second opinion, it wont hurt. How is work going?
    Nikki hope you had a nice weekend. 1 more week then school holidays so you are going to have the house full. Do you have plans for the holidays?

    Well Jordan did well for daylight savings, woke up at 8.30 (7.30 new time). He didnt go to sleep this afternoon till 2pm new time so he did really well.
    He has taken a few more steps, the most is 8 in a row. We are making him walk from DH to me and back again lots. He is getting more confident to let go so I am hoping within the next couple of weeks I can announce his actually walking.
    Planning a surprise party for FIL so that is fun. We are having it at our place which is good. I just hate the cleaning up afterwards. We will have to get plenty of helpers in the next day I think.
    Hope you had a nice weekend.
