    Noni, that is really scary, hope the bub is alright. I am scared of something like that happening here when we are 2 hours away from a decent hospital.

    Clare, that must have been terrifying, how did you ever sleep again?

    Haley, my DH has only changed a couple of dirty nappies but I prefer to do them because DH takes too long and doesn't know the tricks and is likely to end up with W's foot in it or get it wiped all over everything. I have it down to a fine (and clean) art. He does change wee nappies though. W goes to bed at 8-8.30pm so DH gets to spend a fair bit of the evening with him which is good.

    Renee, I have given W those shapes lol, he likes curry and spicyish things. I would never give it to someone elses baby though, that is rude.

    Pregpan, I wish we could go somewhere cool for christmas but we will probably leave it too late to make any plans and end up doing nothing

    Looks like I spoke too soon about W's sleeping getting better. He was up a million times last night grizzling, wouldn't even feed back to sleep properly. I tried giving him panadol but that didn't even do anything. I think it is his teeth, but they still don't seem any closer to coming through. Sucks because the IL's are here and I have to maintain a pleasant exterior while every little thing is p!ssing me off and I would kill for a cigarette.

    And just to vent before I start to digest my own stomach lining - MIL pronounces Will as Wiwl. It drives me mental. Arrgghhhhhh.

    LOL Speaking of DH/DP's changing dirty nappies! Dwayne and I had a bit of a hang over from his work do at the casino. This morning DH begged me to change Rory's nappy as his tummy was upset but I wouldnt let him get out of it LOL! I walked into Rorys room as Dwayne was changing him and he had poo on his hands, gagging and saying 'ohh my god oh my god' HAHA!

    LOL @ your IL's Art, thats a classic! My nan & pop calls Rory, Wory!!!!!! I hope you have a better night tonight hon. Maybe try some of that natural teething relief im using on Rory, I LOVE IT! Its called Hylands. You can use it with panadole too. I think my mums reiki has been helping too.

    Noni - Jesus, thats every parents worst nightmare. I hope their bubs is doing okay...and I hope you are, that would of been a real scare for you too.

    Pregpan - Oooo how exciting! Thats it, I need to organise something now.

    Mum got into my cheese cake last night and my wine while she was sitting Rory here LOL! haha all well its the least I can do for her, she is amazing!!

    Gosh, so much going on in here I can't keep up LOL.

    Had the same-old-same-old on Friday, which kept me out of the house all day and then yesterday we had our friends' baby's baptism, so we were out all day for that. Perfect day for it too - I even got a bit sunburnt from sitting out in the sun.

    The biggest news we have is that Alister can now say Dada - and says it often too ah well, I did get 1 out of 4 LOL. When I say to him "where's Dada?" he gets this big grin on his face and says Dada, but when I say "where's mum?" he just looks at me as if to say, well I'm looking at you silly. He is also getting more adept at walking while hanging onto my legs too - which is soooo frustrating. He thinks he is clever, but I wish he wouldn't do it.

    Apart from that there isn't much happening at all. Alister is in bed sleeping ATM - missed his usual morning sleep so I gave him a bottle at his normal wakeup time and he fell asleep having that. He will hopefully sleep till at least 1.30-2pm now, but the trade off from that is he wont have another sleep now probably.

    Noni -oooh your poor friend must be beside herself. Let us know how baby is getting on, when you can. If it turns out to be meningococcal you might need to go the dr yourself and get some antibiotics for yourself and Asha, as a precaution. Big big to you today.

    And just to vent before I start to digest my own stomach lining - MIL pronounces Will as Wiwl. It drives me mental. Arrgghhhhhh.
    Oh Arte - PMSL - you poor thing. Big and I hope you survive alright while they're there. If you had a dire medical emergency could you go to the army base medical centre?

    Renee LOL at DH changing Rory's nappy hungover! Aaaah the joys...

    Pregpan, wow Thailand for Christmas, that sounds exciting! After gastro, the important thing is to take it easy with the dairy for a bit...maybe leave it for a week then start him on a little tiny bit of yoghurt and take it from there?

    Well I'm in the middle of the biggest clean out of DD1's room in the entire history of her life. We've told her we're doing a bedroom 'makeover' for her birthday (she's turning 10, time for something a bit cool and funky) but the deal is we can't make it over when it's stuffed full of [email protected]! This rationale seems to working and she is happily discarding loads of stuff (woohoo!) I have also successfully managed to convince her that if she is going to 'collect' stuff (read: junk like lolly wrappers and beer bottle tops...! LMAO) that it has to be keep in one of three designated boxes and if I find any item outside of those boxes then they will go straight in the bin. Hopefully she will realise the effort of putting them in the box outweighs the joy of owning them, I predict the "collections" will fold in the next few months.

    Better get back to it I suppose...I hope everyone is enjoying their weekends!

    Noni The reason I said that was because sometimes the M rash is different - it's not always a typical rash. Hopefully not, anyway the hospital sounds like they are taking it seriously so no doubt bubba is in good hands now.

    Sherie, well done A on his talking! E says mumuma and da da da but it's not actually directed at anyone, kwim? Ok the bedroom. DD has said she wants dark blues and purples, with a 'dark fairy' theme (aaah developing gothic tastes already!!). So we are going to repaint her furniture in two shades of purple and two shades of deep blue, she'll have some purple and blue gauze curtains, and the dark fairy thing is actually evolving into butterflies, because I've found quilt covers/cushions etc in that colour-way with butterflies overlaid, although one of them is a Hannah Montana quilt cover. Not quite what she asked for LOL but pretty funky AND it comes with a bolster cushion that has speakers in it (she can plug her mp3 player into it) LOL. I've also found some blue/purple butterfly silhouette wall stickers and we'll do a big purple velvet pin board, and themed scatter cushions (she has a cabin bed and we've got a mattress underneath cos she likes sitting under there so the cushions will all go down there, I might even put a gauze curtain across it so she's got a real 'nook' under there. Also haven't found one yet but I'm thinking a solid blue/purple rug, because we can't paint (rental) so that will add more colour in the middle of the room. Better get a wriggle on.

    Ooooooh Marydean, that would have been my ideal bedroom as a girl too. My sister and I had those bunk beds where they were actually separate, so you could put them in a corner and have the bottom one going one and and the top one the other way in the corner kwim, and at the other end we did have a nook of sorts - we had a small bookshelf and a little cupboard that could be locked and it was close to a power point so I could plug my tape deck in (saying 'tape deck' makes me feel sooooo old and vintage LOL)

    Noni, I hope your friends little one is OK. The rash could also be chicken pox too from the sound of the blister.

    Hi Girls!

    Noni: OMG i hope the little bub is ok! that does sound scary! i would be so paranoid, checking and checking and checking!

    yeah Leila's non breathing thing was pretty scary. it also happened when she was just born and had to go to special care with oxygen for 24 hours. so when it happened at home i was freaked out! basically when we picked her up her belly was rock hard and she was frothing at the mouth. i put her face down across my arm and whacked her back as i remember the midwife at hospy doing it to her and told DH to call the ambulance. they took 4 minutes. basically she wasnt breathing for 1 minute then she was laboured for about 10. they dont know what it was. only that it happens more often then they say. they have an umbrella term (aponea) but basically it can happen for a number of reasons. (many premmie bubs get it). and the funny thing is that it generally happens around the 4-5 week mark...after about 6 hours of monitoring in emergency we were sent home. no answers nothing.
    the next day i bought a monitor and stood outside her door constantly. luckily it never happened again!

    MD: geez sorry for the tough night, at the very least at least you got some validation with DH being home for the fireworks.
    and wow on the room! it sounds fantastic! esp the speaker cushion! egad! i am with sherie...we had tape decks! i still remember my first ever tape: kylie minogues greatest hits!

    Hayley: sounds like DH has had a pretty easy trot. and hello, you work really hard too...24/7 in fact. no lunch break, no home time, no holiday leave, AND NO PAY!. so next time he wants to pull that line out...lay it straight girl!

    well our update is rather strange. and trust me i am NOT complaining, but Leila is sleeping...lots. she is having 3 sleeps a day (normally only 2 half hour cat naps) and last night she slept 13 hours. she has NEVER done this. hoping she is not coming down with something...maybe it's all the crawling tuckering her out?? and she is still sleeping ATM (put her down at 1pm...). hhmmm (man i worry when she doesnt sleep and i worry when she sleeps! LOL! the joys of being a mummy!).

    I remember my first tape, it was The Nolan Sisters ("Dont' make waves" oooh) and my sister had Bucks Fizz AND the coolest of the cool, Michael Jackson's Thriller, just as a single. PMSL Before that we had my mum's old portable record player (waaaay cool) and some funky records singles - Splish Splash I was having a bath (on a bath-shaped record, how cool was that), we had "It's a small world" that Nanna brought back from her trip to Disneyland (sung in 10 different languages on the B track LOL) and I also had a Helen Reddy single. Aaah the 70s were such a great time to be a kid!!!

    DD calls records "those big black CD things" ! She was born after the advent of mobile phones. How times have changed.

    good afternoon ladies

    arte- lmao at wiwl. when i say it out loud i can just imagine how annoying your mil sounds!

    renee- sometimes if i smell a pooey nappy (i reckon they smell a bit like bbq chicken for some reason) i'll always tell dp it's his turn. unfortunately most times lewis does a poo it's when dp is at work....

    md- the bedroom sounds awesome. just don't let H get stuck into your black eyeliner just yet lmao!

    Afternoon everyone,

    Noni I hope your friends bubba is ok, how scary.

    MD H's room sounds very cool. I have been cleaning out my house this weekend.

    Sherie well doen to A and his talking. L said mum for a couple of weeks and said dadda this morning. I know what you mean about them being around your legs, it drives me bonkas, especially when I am in the kitchen.

    Arte how annoying that your MIL calls him Wiwl. Are they staying long?

    Renne LMAO at the dirty nappy, thats to funny and something that would happen to my DH too.

    Pregpan is your DH away for a long time? How cool going away for Christmas.

    Clare I hope Leila isn't coming down with something and that all the crawling is just tiring her out.

    I have had a such a busy weekend and could fall asleep as I type. I have been cleaning out the whole house. Logans tooth is still coming through and the one next to it looks like it will make an appearance soon. Not much to tell really so I had better go and finish cleaning so I can start dinner.

    Hi to everyone else I hope you all had a good weekend.

    Ahh I started on the contraceptive pill two days ago and already I feel ill!

    We had such a nice day today, the three of us went for a walk along the river & stopped to push Maddie on the swings. I love family days at the park! We also went to a second hand book shop and I picked up Annabel Karmel's complete guide to feeding a baby and toddler in brand new condition for $10, along with a few Sandra Brown novels for myself I have no idea how much the AK book is brand new but I like to think that I got a bargain!

    Arte - Oh no I hope they arent staying for too long! I know exactly how you feel. Yes I know what you mean about changing nappies yourself rather than letting DH. On the very few occassions that DP has changed a WET nappy, he doesnt put the nappy back on properly and it leaks. I guess he needs more practice, maybe its my own fault for taking over too much. I wish Maddie would stay awake till 8.30!! She is so on the dot, in bed by no later than 7pm thanks very much. Sometimes if she isnt settling she makes it to 7.30 but boy is she grumpy. She has always been this way, I wonder if its my own fault for letting her go to bed so early? Its working anyway I guess.

    Gracie - LMAO @ bbq chicken!

    Katie - Sounds like an early night for you.

    Cally - I have been trying my hardest to be in bed by 9.30 at the latest for the past couple of nights, its so hard. I feel better though from the early nights. Only bummer is Maddie has been waking up around 2.30ish and is up and down from there onwards till 6am, so just as well I'm having early nights!

    MD - Lmao Thriller is the best! One of my firsts was also Kylie like Clare. I also had Madonna like a prayer!!

    Clare - OMG how scary. My mum went through the same thing with my sister. Has Leila grown out of it now?

    Leemar - How is Olivia today after her high temps?

    Noni - Hope it isnt the chicken pox! Sounds not good whatever it is.

    Sherie - Yay for Alister saying dada! Dont worry, still no mama here either!

    Renee - lol Thats too funny! Bet he wont be drinking for awhile now after that!

    Hi girls - haven't been in this thread for awhle but it's so nice to catch up and see what other babies are doing. Will give you quick update on Mackenzie!

    She said "mum mum" AGES ago but hasn't for awhile now - it's all "dad dad" and "nan nan" and a whole lot of other gibberish!! She can sit very well but isn't anywhere crawling though tonight - very excited - she moved quite a bit backwards so I guess that's a good start! She also does lots of 360's! Mackenzie also clapped hands for first time tonight - big night for us!!

    Mackenzie doesn't eat any food other than breastmilk but we're learning to deal with that - not stressing too much. Have to laugh - you give her a biscuit or fruit or anything really and she'll just hold it but as soon as she has a block or toy in her hand she sucks on those like crazy! She has a tooth on the bottom with one on the way.

    Does anyone here use "MAM" brand bottles? I've heard they're quite good and I might try those because she won't take a bottle either.

    Can't wait to read more about other bubs!

    Hi JordieC, wow go Mackenzie it has been a big night! My Maddie is much the same with the sitting well but no crawling. Re solids, Mackenzie will get there when she is ready and you are right to not stress yet. It is hard though I know and I often get a little worried. Maddie isnt overly keen on food, and really the only things she goes for is bland vege purees & toast. Doesnt like fruit much at all, which is a bit different because apparently babies have a sweet tooth lol. Not mine! They say milk is still the main source of nutrients up till the age of 12 months so still plenty of time.

    Hi Jordy, great to see you pop in and give us all an update . Alister is going great apart from night wakings, which are hit and miss most nights, but enough to make me feel tired LOL. Solids are going well, but the only vege that he will let pass his lips is the rafferty's garden Spinach, broccoli, peas and apple, the rest is fruit or custard. Paige was the same and she eats everything now, so I'm not worried at all that he will be a fussy eater. Oh, he does have a chop bone when we have them too LOL.

    Pregpan, I had a thought last night that Noah possibly has a few food intolerances caused by the first tummy bug stripping the gut lining - dairy intolerances are common in little ones after a bug. And this second episode is not so much tummy bug, but possibly his tummy reacting to having a normal diet again. Maybe if you started again with some very bland, low allergenic foods it may help his tummy recover some more. Don't worry about it being a permanent thing, the intolerances usually sort themselves out once the gut is back to normal.

    So-so night here again LOL. He would have been fine for most of the night, only DH is on dayshift, so the alarm went off at 4am, waking him up. Before that he'd been in a solid sleep since 1.30 and I reckon he would have gone longer still. DH took his sweet time turning it off too, making it worse.

    Hayley, what BCP are you on?
