    Sherie, Good luck for V-Day today! Hope it all goes well with minimal *ahem* side effects!

    Noni . Sorry your feeling so down. I agree with MD, its not unfair of you at all to want some help and support. MD is right about going to see your GP so you can get things sorted now before they get out of control. You are a fanatsic mother and thats really all that matters, I know how hard it is worrying about your weight but try to remember the safest weight loss happens gradually. I hope that you make a bunch of really great friends at your mothers group, it sounds like you could do with some.

    Renne I had the "this is our baby moment" but I was so tired it took a liltte while to happen. Your Rory sounds like such a clever little boy.

    Pregpan glad N is taking to solids. I know what you mean about being sad that our babies are growing up, its all happening so quickly.

    Leanne so glad to hear that X's op went well and that his finger is healing, it is simply amazing what the human body can do isn't it.

    Sherie how is your DH feeling this morning? I hope it all goes well and he recovers quickly.

    Im so excited, my mum is coming up this weekend. I havent seen her since Christmas, I imagine she will be both sad and happy to see how much L has changed and all the things he is doing now. Mr Magoo has been up since 5 and decided 15 min was enough sleep for him, he is such a cheeky little monkey.

    i know what you guys are saying about talking to the gp and catching it early but for some reason this time i dont think i can... i think i am developing pnd if you can this late.. i actually feel angry at Asha sometimes when she wakes me up and i just cant handle listening to her cry i honestly feel like telling her to shutup sometimes i feel like such a selfish worthless idiot i am too ashamed to tell anyone about it face to face...

    Noni it really sounds like you need to speak to a Dr, please don't be ashamed. Are you close with your mum or anyone, perhaps someone who can go to the Dr with you for support? Sending you loads of hugs.

    hi ladies! sorry won't be doing personals. max had 4 mo. needles yesterday and has a fever. poor little thing has also lost her appetite it seems. and she doesn't like panadol. speaking of which, if she doesn't take the full recommended dosage, will it not work? can i give the balance of her dosage in a 4-hr period? did that make sense? it's just that i mixed it w/ water and there's still some in the bottle. can i give this to her a couple of hours after i started? or is it pointless?
    noni, YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU SET YOUR MIND TO!!! see how much asha is thriving? look how well you're doing w/ WW. as for telling her to shut up, been there. but instead of saying "shut up" i've been shushing her in a very irritated manner. in fact, dp took her to watch tv in the bedroom last sunday afternoon when he heard me. think he could sense the frustration. also know what you mean about not being able to tell someone face to face. but, thing is, you've recognized it which is already a step forward. just need to put the other leg forward. chin up and big big

    Noni - big hugs to you. I feel for you and I hear what you are saying. I think you have recognised a problem yourself which is amazing - please go and see someone, you will feel so much better for it and no one will judge you at all. I am sure it is not easy but you have done the hardest part,w hcih is recognising a prob yourself so take that step and you will be on the pathway to feeling a lot better I am sure. We are all here for you, and you can write anything here of course but I think that talking face to face with someone as hard as that is is what will really make you feel better in the longer term. Also have you posted on the depression board here? The lovely ladies on there would have good personal stories and advice for you I am sure. You are a wonderful mummy, and Asha is thriving in your care - but it is not good that you feel this way. Let us know how you get along today wont you honey.
    Fianne - so sorry that Max is under the weather - dont you HATE the needles!!??? I dont know what advice re the panadol, it would be worth calling the healthline in your state or speaking to a pharmacist to be sure (I dont like to risk anything with drugs so always best to ask a professional IMO). I am sure she is not happy too the poor little thing - thinking of you today.
    Sherie - hope all goes well today for your DH
    Katie - how exciting to see your Mum... I hope she has a lovely visit with Logan. It sounds like he and Noah are from the same school of thought re sleep!!

    Not much on for me today - it is pouring rain here so I cant do my usual walk... I will go meet DH for lunch i think or I will climb the walls at home!

    noni, about dp not being good with taking asha from you to give you a break, you have to take into consideration that both dp and i are quite a bit older....dp's 41 this week....so have mellowed quite a bit. it comes with time i think. i've got a feeling you can beat this, so just jump in fighting girl!!!
    pregpan, yes, i hate the needles!!!!

    Noni, your phone book will have the number for your local PANDSI (Post and Ante Natal Depression Support and Information) who specialise in this area, I'm pretty sure if you rang them you'd be speaking with someone who's been there before and won't judge you for what you say. It might help as a first step anyway. xxx

    hey girls thanks so much for the support.. atm i am trying to handle things myself (well ive got you guys too!!) having lived with varying mental conditions all my life i do know how to recognise the signs.. i am still taking time for myself and getting a good amount of aggression out atthe gym through pump and body attack classes which make me feel better.. also things like just laying in the bath with ash, creating calm situations in which we just stare at eachother really helps me to unwind and make sure i keep the close bond i have with her even if sometimes i feel angry, i'm sure its good for her to feel a nice calm situation with mummy too.. am trying to play with her more and include her in what i do like today i took the jumperoo outside while i hung the clothes on the line instead of leaving her inside in her bouncer or something.. basically just taking small steps with the occassional vent here and there lol and seeing how that goes for now...

    it is quiet in here today!! well i managed to beat my boredom - went and met DH for lunch and then went shopping!! aaaah spending cash that is the way to while away a rainy day! this is the 1st time i have gone shopping since noah was born and 1. not bought him anything and 2. really bought myself stuff - i got new jeans and 3 tops!
    Noni - I am sure you know what to look out for, and it sounds like you are going through a process that is right for you. Just as long as you are able to ask for help when you need it. and vent to us of course!!

    Hi ladies, gee it's been quiet in here the last few days! Sounds like I'm the only one who didn't go shopping today I wanted to get out but spent the day waiting for the carpet man (to nail a strip over the edge where the carpet tacks are poking through) and by the time he finally came and went it was time for E's sleep and that was that! *sigh* Nice having a day pottering around home with no real 'jobs' to do though.

    E has one easysuit, she wore it for the first time when DH was away and I came down with gastro, I couldn't cope with it then...it's been on a few times since then no probs though! I bought a size larger...

    Well, after our discussion about rep points the other day I turned mine on...it's amazing, ppl leave these nice comments for you! Can't believe it took me 6 months to work it out LOL. So now I'm keen to get cracking and start awarding them to other ppl.

    How are all the bubbas pulling up after the vacc's...side effects worn off yet? E was whingy for the first 24 hours but no side effects at all, no temp, no swelling, I'm very impressed!

    hi girls,
    lewis had his needles today and has been so whingey! what a nightmare grrr, thankfully dp has had the day off work so he's been helping me a bit.
    i love Bonds Easysuits!! i have 4, and everytime i go to Big W i try to buy more, but they never seem to have any blue ones in size 1. they have heaps of pink ones but no blue. oh well...

    noni- are you doing a little better today?

    LOL Noni at sharing the family pain! I was surprised because you'd expect 2nd vacc to get a stronger reaction than first, when she had a bit of hot redness for a day or so, but nope!

    Gracie I've seen the easysuits at Target a few times, they can be a good price when they have a sale on. We have a stripey one, I'm not as fond of the writingy pattern thingy.

    Have any of the BFing ladies plotted their bubs on the WHO growth charts, I'm just printing them out to have a look. Could be interesting.

    i think that max has finally got over her fever. i was able to get a dose of panadol in her by mixing it with her formula. she absolutely dislikes panadol and gags. *phew....md, with your comment about 2nd vacc getting a stronger reaction than first....does that mean that the 3rd one will be even worse? i really hated the past couple of days...the worry....hmmmm....and this is just the start eh? *sigh
