    JaZmum - My neighbour had terrible cramps, bleeding and contractions through her pregnancy and went on to have a healthy little boy Hayden He was due 4 weeks after Rory but came 1 week before Rory was born! I could of died by that stage, I was soooooo over being pregnant and here was my neighbour with her little bub before me! I hope everything turns out well for your sister & your family xoxox

    Im sad, everyone's bubs seem to be using their jolly jumpers but Rory cant because he wont hold his head up yet Although he will lift it up when he is on his belly.

    Fianne - Im glad Max didnt have a tough time with her needles. What a brave little girl

    Sherie - I was wondering where you got to LOL! I know what you mean about the goozie!! Not only do I need to worry about spew when im wearing a nice top but I have to watch out for GOOZIE too! We call Rory the Goozie Monster haha

    Hayley - BAH! Dont worry about what the drs etc tell you should be the 'norm' or 'average' every baby is differtnt. Ive been so slack, I have got rory weighed in ageeeees

    My brain is fried, ive been so busy today! I bought Rory a t-shirt 'Its darn tough being this cute' haha aww. I better go to bed ive got work tomorrow.

    AF arrived today whoohoo

    what on earth happened to my name on my ticker!

    Marydean, I just posted in there. I am so happy for her.

    Jaz, I hope your sister was OK overnight. It is so scary when you don't know what is going on and you can't help but think the worst.

    Hayley, don't worry about her weight - all babies are different and it takes all sizes to get the 'average' for the growth charts. Mine have all been so very different in their growth and by this age (3mth) they were all fed the same way, but Lindsay was huge at 7.4kg, Erin was only a tiny titch at 5.98 and Paige wasn't much bigger at 6.25kg and I said yesterday that Alister is 6.88kg. Remember too now that the growth charts are now based on exclusively BF babies (not that being FF makes a difference but the *average* BF bub is a bit leaner). You will also find that their growth will really slow down at about 6mths and once they get active and start getting mobile they get a bit leaner too. By the time they start school you won't be able to even tell who was what size in infancy.

    Renee, I am happy that you are staying as a trio for a while longer yet I don't even have a jolly jumper, I couldn't even begin to imagine what the other kids would do if I did LOL.

    Fianne, of course we all have beautiful babies LOL. That pic of your mums group is really cute. I am far from being a supermum - you should see the pile of washing I have neglected and my bedroom looks like a bomb went off in there. And you will be multi-tasking in no time. I found it so much harder with one than I do 4.

    Arte, how has Will been? do you think he's been fussy because you are getting AF?

    Marydean, how are things in your neck of the woods hun?

    Noni, Asha is a clever little chookie for nearly having a tooth through already.

    Katie, don't be alarmed at Logan losing a little bit of weight - sometimes it can be skewed if they have been pooing alot or doing a lot developmentally (moving around more burns up more calories). If it wasn't a huge amount and if he is still having plenty of wet nappies etc then he should be fine - he might even have a big gain next week. But you know him best and if you decide to give him FF to supplement, then just ask if you have any questions ok?

    last night I finally finished the slide show DVD I was doing, but my poor old burner was suffering LOL - it's never worked so hard in its like. I also finished putting labels on the preschool class photos. Last night was the best nights sleep I've had in ages - all the stuff I had to do was keeping me awake at night, but I can rest easier now it's done.

    Someone mentioned hair yesterday I think (or was it the day before?). Alister is starting to get some fuzzy regrowth now on top where he lost it - the sides are still a bit bare though. I think I am finally on top of the cradle cap problem too as it's not nearly as bad now. With his bottles he has 6 x 160ml, but sometimes he will have more, and other times he wont quite finish the bottle. Don't put pressure on yourselves by what the tin says they should have - if we were BF then we would have no idea how much they would be having. They take what they need at the time to be satisfied. On the subject of teeth, Im not expecting Alister to get any for ages yet - all of mine have gotten them really late - Lindsay was 10mths old when he got his first tooth.

    So cute - the cat just jumped up on the bed and is purring and looking at the baby. She usually ignores him.

    I think W might have a touch of the cold DH and I have had for the past week. His nose is full of boggers. My cousin who is a nanny told me that some people suck them out by mouth, now every time I wipe his nose I think of it and want to gag.

    A while ago when I had the leaking Snugglers I was really annoyed and wrote a complaint/hate mail to the company and today on my doorstep was an apology letter and a 30 pack of Huggies. They are made by the same company, and freely admit that snugglers are less absorbant and slower to absorb.

    Jazmum, how is your sis today? Thinking of you both. xxx

    ILs have been behaving themselves, they gave us a night off then came around yesterday and Brought Dinner With Them (Big Green Tick for that one, folks). So relieved as I'm still desperately trying to finish sewing their quilt for Christmas and the evening hours when Missy is in bed is my best time for it.

    OK, work Christmas lunch today, Don't know what's wrong with me, but I'm STILL nervous about having to BF around my colleagues. What the...? I'm fearless in any other public arena, it's just at work you've got to be so well, inoffensive. Plus there's a couple of (male) library geeks who I'm sure haven't had too many boob encounters at all in their lives who could potentially have an embarrassment meltdown...*sigh* I'm just not very good at hiding underneath a wrap. The place we're going to has a courtyard though so I spose I can always discretely step out if it comes to that.

    Gotta go, Miss E has a pooey bum and you all know what that means!

    MD - how did you stop Miss E getting gastro when you were sick? DH has come down with it and I'm petrified that I'm going to get it now too!

    Hope everyone else is well

    Jazmum - my sister had symptoms like that very early on in her pregnancy - turns out she actually had twins and lost one at 5 weeks, but the other one is fine and she is up to week 30. Fingers crossed your sister is OK.

    Hi everyone ~

    I have just about finished organising things for when the girls get here, They're coming on Monday now... It was supposed to be Wednesday, I set them up a bedroom each with all new furniture and everything i thought little girls would like, but they want to share a room so i have to move it all around. ARGH!. lol, they're just so used to being close to each other i guess.

    Someone asked what our financial arragement was, Can't remember who - We're going to be financially responsible for them as my brother isn't in the position to help out much at the moment, but he will where he can.

    I have to find time to book in for my super dooper birthday make-over, Found out yesterday I'm not allowed to take Scarlet with me

    I hope your sister is doing okay today jazmum xxx

    Hayley, don't stress, Scarlet is MASSIVE - She's still off the scales in length and weight for her age, even on the boy's chart *lol* Apparently i was a porker too! - They lose it all when they start being more active

    grr, i forget everything else again..

    MD, I am with you on not being able to feed in front of co-workers. The only person I keep in contact with from work is a guy. We see him and his partner socially every couple of weeks and I just can't feed in front of them. Not even with a wrap cover. Anywhere else is fine, it is just him and BILs/FIL.

    Renee, don't worry that Rory can't hold his head up yet. Will is crap at holding his head up on his tummy - from your photos Rory is miles ahead that way. I am sure it won't be far away.

    ETA LP, make sure Centerlink are aware you have the kids - nothing worse than parents still getting money for kids they aren't even looking after. You should be eligible for some sort of carers payment to help out.

    o0o I got a new oven for my birthday too! It's massive, i could cook a pig in it, it takes up like half of my little kitchen lol... I didn't even know it was coming, they showed up yesterday and starting ripping stuff out of the kitchen to put it in, It's funny before PG i would never have been so excited about an oven - I tried put a pic in my gallery 'cause i'm so proud but it wont let me It keeps saying 'we do not support this file type yet' so i changed it to all sorts of different ones and it still wont work... anyone know why?

    Hm, good point Art - Not sure if we can get anything from centerlink as we have a fair bit in savings and investment property, plus DF may earn too much and we will not be thier legal guardians until the end of
    '08 to mid '09... Might have a chat with them anyway.

    Cally - one word: handwashing. I have the dettol moisturising handwash in every soap dispenser in the house. Make sure you wash these five:
    *fronts of hands
    *backs of hands
    *in between fingers
    *thumbs
    *wrists

    I also went crazy with the pineocleen, and swabbed down the toilet, toilet button, taps and door handles every couple of hours. The other thing you've got to watch out for is not inhaling any vomit droplets if you're in the room when that happens, ie turn your head away and probably a good idea to keep the windows open.

    HTH. Don't let your DH suffer too long, take him to the dr for a maxolon shot and get him onto some Gastrostop or charcoal tablets.

    ETA - LP -I'm dead jealous of your new oven. Think of us when you bake your first dinner!

    Morning Girls,

    Jazmum- I hope your sis is ok. Hugs for both of you.
    Hayley- Yes I run my parents and my brothers businesses and our employee's annoy the F#*k out of me.
    MD- Yeah on the tick for inlaws you lucky devil...
    LP- You are a wonderful person and if you dont find a good ENT specialist we see DR Hodge he has a practice in the city and at redcliffe. He is wonderful. We are going to him today as DH needs a check up
    and Xavier needs to see him as he may need gromets, He has had 2 ear infections when puss was coming out of his ear. Dont know how he got them but they say it is very common for kids to have ear infections up to they are 5. Oh I hope he doesnt need gromets then my baby will have to go to hospital...

    Hello to everyone and hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Oh and I got some chrissy shopping done too can you believe it. I have Olivia done and only have to get a couple of cars for the boys now and then they are done. Now just have to get everyone elses. OMG Christmas is so expensive and with the boys I get all caught up in all the hype and spend way too much money. DH and I are very excited to see their faces this year. Every year it gets more and more exciting. Jordan is going to squeal with excitment.
    RE: big babies: Jordan was a big boy and Xavier was little and everyone use to say to me that Jordan must take all the his brothers food when in actual fact Xavier would drink and eat more than jordan. Then when Jordan start to move around like crawling and walking and now doesnt not stop he has thined down heaps but Xavier is still the little one. It just goes to show that big babies are not a product of overfeeding but its just the way they are. So dont worry about it at all. Olivia is starting to become a little chubber just like Jordy.

    LP, DH earns $80k and we are still eligible for a bit from centerlink and that is with one baby. I think I get around $160 per fortnight from them.
    Centerlink recognises informal custody arrangements, it is really worth checking out.
    I just hate to think of their useless mum still getting parenting payments while you are paying for the care of the kids.

    Oh, cool - thanks ART... I just assumed they wouldn't be able to help us, I will definately go and see them about it, We have just started to get back on track with planning our wedding now so every little bit helps - Hopefully i don't get pregnant & have to cancel everything again this time lol.

    MD - He is heading to the doctor this afternoon and K and I are going to walk down to the chemist when she wakes up to get him something. We have separate bathrooms and I slept in the spare room last night. Just hoping that K and I didn't catch it on Wed evening before he had any symptoms as he woke up yesterday with body aches, the rest didn't hit him until last night. So frustrating having him home but not able to do anything!! Especially when K had me up at 1 and 4:30 last night.

    Katie is spot on the 50% curve - a very average baby!!

    Art - might have to check with Centrelink, I figured we wouldn't be eligible for much and were just going to claim it at the end of the year once we know what our incomes are.

    Cally, I understand that gastro spreads as a result of poo or vom contact, or eating contaminated food. So it's highly unlikely that you could 'catch' it before any symptoms showed up IYKWIM - I know it won't stop you worrying (i was still hypervigilant a whole week after I was better LOL) but I think you should be ok.
