    Julia - that's great that Max is sleeping through and sleeping in his own bed. He has progressed so much in such a short space of time.
    Your DH owes you big time. I would have thought that his company would have appointed a relocation service to assist you with all that. Oh well the shopping at the other end will make up for it.
    Kim - great news about Jasmine. I only went to the GP for her shots and really haven't had a developmental checkup. I wasn't sure if they did them beyond 12 months.


    AFM - bit upset at the moment. Got a referral in the mail today from the OB to have a GTT test. Had my GD test on Monday and obviously failed it. Been doing some reading and now I am worried that I am going to have a big baby, need to have a C-Section and all the other risks. Mostly I feel guilty that I haven't been looking after myself properly and now I have endangered myself and my baby. I just assumed that because I was right last time that I would be this time. I am trying not to panic but it is so hard.

    Anyway, I'll take my miserable self off and eat a carrot stick and water in preparation for this test.

    Back from the Dr's Kodi had her needles & did pretty good. Dr also sent M off for a blood test which went well because it only took 1 try but as soon as M saw the needle she cried & it didn't end for 5 mins after the BT finished. We felt so bad we took her to buy a Dora doll lol.
    Now she wont let anyone near her & keeps saying owwies

    Saffi I'm sure you'll pass the GTT. I wouldn't of passed the 1hr test but i passed the 2hr one fine
    Keep thinking positive thoughts

    Amber i hope she sleeps well tonight as-well

    Mo - SOooo glad Kodi did well with her needles! Thats great... I have to get MORE urine tests for Chels now too... The last ones came back inconclusive. She also has to have a kidney ultrasound... Not sure 100% why cause she has een fine for the last 2 weeks but I guess they want to rule everything out. Poor little Maddi and her blood tests! Im glad she was a big brave girl!


    Nerida - Awwww Im sure you will be fine although I totally understand why your stressed. Just try not to think about it too much until you know for sure... Thinking of ya!! X

    Morning girls, just a quick update. We took Mia to the doctors again yesterday, they said her wee sample was abnormal again but think it was contaminated. Not sure how this happened when she weed straight into the container? Other than that, we also found out that she has hand, foot and mouth disease. All of her symptoms so far really added up to a gastro bug, but then yesterday she come out with really red hands, feet and mouth. So we are in quarantine and that Tay doesn't get it. Maybe because she has been sick and is on antibiotics she might be spared!

    Kellie
    - enjoy the wiggles, we have been to two concerts of theirs and they are great! We are giving them a miss this year and are going to Disney on Ice instead, which is on early July! I think next time I might look into Hi-5 as my kids are really into them!

    Mo - poor M, hopefully the results come back ok. I am sure Dora made it all the better for her though!

    Saffi
    - I know the answer will be obvious, but what is a GD and GTT test? Good luck with everything anyway, I will keep my for you x

    Amber, Julia, Becky, Kim, Rebecca, Trish and anyone else I might have missed!

    Thanks Girls i hope everything comes back fine as well

    Kaz GD=Gestational Diabetes & GTT=Glucose Tolerance test.
    Hope Mia gets better soon & Tay doesn't get it.

    Becky when M first had an inclusive urine sample they sent her off for a u/s to make sure her kidney function was fine & it was. So I'm sure that's way Chelsea is being sent for one.

    Kellie Hope you all enjoy the wiggles concert

    OK, have tried to post 3 times in the last few days but will try again...

    Firstly...Amber/Julia - I enthusiastically share in your excitement about the boys sleeping through! Well done! Awesome feeling hey??

    Saffi - I can imagine how you must feel but please try not to worry too much till the results are in. I know quite a few people who've had dodgy results first time around but did not have GD. Hang in there

    Trish - hope you're feeling better soon Just when I thought we were having a good run, DD has come down with a cold. Nothing too serious yet thankfully. I really thought it was croup again yesterday, but today it seems more of a chesty cough. Couldn't get in to see our GP today so have made an appt for her for Monday. Hoping she is better and can go to preschool though, it's 'Crazy Day' on Monday, dress ups, face painting, dancing etc so I'm hoping she doesn't miss out on the fun. P.S you'd be proud of my nesting today - cleaned out my whole pantry and threw so much stuff away, sorted everything out, even put all my baking stuff into containers and labelled them! Can't take all the credit, DH was a big help. I keep opening it just to have a look - it's NEVER been so clean or organised! Next project will be DDs room. We moved it around a week ago but not happy with it so back to the drawing board...

    Mo - I hope Miss M's results come back all clear

    Kaz - hope the girls are both illness free really soon!

    Hi to anyone I've missed!

    As for us - DS got his cast off on Monday Am a bit concerned as he has quite a bad limp and is turning his foot out when he walks - basically walking like he still has the cast on Ortho specialist told us it was normal and would settle but if we have any concerns over the next few weeks to bring him back. He is at least using his leg and bending his knee more today so we'll see how he goes. So nice to be able to hold and cuddle him properly again! He is totally loving his baths too - I wasn't the only one over 5 weeks of sponge baths!

    DH and I can't believe how well he is talking and we are starting to have people comment on it, so it's probably not just proud parent syndrome LOL! He was sitting at the dining table today and had finished his lunch and called something out to us, DH turned to me and said "He sounds like a bloody 3 year old!" He is talking in short sentences (ie 'Mum, shoe off?', 'Mum, more bic?' - that means another biscuit! haha!) and comes out with new words just about every day (and Trish - we're still hearing 'Mum, whas this?" about a million times a day! haha. He still can't say DDs name but has started calling her 'Sis'). I think verbally he is much more advanced that DD at his age but it's hard to remember.

    Other than that, just plodding along. Got DH home for 4 day weekend so making the most of it to get some stuff done around the house. Feeling really, really prg these days - I couldn't put my socks on this morning

    Willow - Hooray for no more cast ! I'm sure L will get used to walking properly again really soon, it sounds very normal what he is doing atm. And woohoo on your nesting work LOL! I already did my pantry a few weeks ago (I'm such a shocker ) and I was the same, I kept opening it to admire my work . Same went for the fridge and freezer after I'd done them LOL! I hope DD gets better quickly.

    Amber - I wish we lived closer to you guys, I'd hang out with you! (Well, you probably don't want our germs atm LOL). Have fun at Yo Gabba Gabba! You always seem to be off to a show you lucky thing

    Kaz - Poor Mia . I hope she recovers quickly and I have my fingers crossed for you that Taygan doesn't catch it.

    Becky - I'm sure Chelsea's u/s will show all is OK if you say she has been OK for the last couple of weeks. They probably just want to make absolutely sure she's alright. The poor thing though, it is hard for them to sit still and not be upset for things like that.

    Misskate - Hi! How are you guys going?

    Kellie - Have fun at the Wiggles concert tomorrow! I hope Tahlia is feeling better.

    Mo - Aww, poor Maddi having to have a BT. I hope she forgave you eventually! They know how to make you feel terrible don't they?

    Saffi - I'm sure everything will be OK and your next test will come back clear. Please don't feel guilty! I'm sure you eat just like any other pg woman

    Julia - Woohoo for Max sleeping all night! I hope he keeps it up for you!

    Kim - I'm glad Jasmine is doing so well!

    Hi to everyone I've missed!

    Poor K has a yucky cough, I suppose it's all part of things atm. I'm feeling slightly more human today which is nice, still absolutely exhausted though. DH & Joel are off in the caravan for the weekend tomorrow so it will just be K and I, nice and relaxing! I'm sure I'll hear "Where's Joel?" and "Where's Dad?" all weekend LOL!

    Have a great night all!

    Trish - I did my fridge/freezer a few weeks ago too! LOL. We also have an upright freezer in our laundry and I made DH do that (the bottom shelf has horrid things that he feeds to his snakes so no way I was going near those!!). Have also done a declutter of the laundry (you did yours too, I remember reading about it! haha!), our bedroom, the spare room which will now be the nursery, and DDs room. I need to do the top of our fridge too - I usually stick all of DDs paintings from school etc up there and need to sort them out, it's a mess! I am also dying to get our carpets cleaned but want to hold off a bit longer cause I don't want them (especially the rug in our lounge room) to be dirty again by the time Boo arrives Going to sit down and make a list of stuff I want to do before my due date.

    I also went and did a big layby of all the extra stuff we needed - carseat (very happy to report that x2 maxi riders plus the SNS convertible fit ), cot mattress, another monitor etc yesterday. I said to DH 'Why is it that #3 is costing us a bomb when #2 cost us practically nothing?!" His reply "Because #2 is still using all our stuff!" LOL!

    Hope you get to relax this weekend with only one little man at home - Joel must be feeling better then??

    Willow, it scares me how similar we are sometimes LOL! As I was reading all the jobs you have done I was thinking "tick, done that" and the thing bugging me atm is the carpet rug in our lounge room LOL! I only brought it up with DH two nights ago and we talked about hiring one of those supermarket carpet cleaner thingys! And yes, Joel is feeling much better now, so he is off to Auskick for the first time tomorrow morning then off caravaning with DH

    Willow thats great your Ds has his cast off poor bubba! I am sure he wont limp for too much longer!
    Trish Your the sweetest person! Hope K gets better soon!

    Wow M is really bad at talking do you think I should get bhim checked out! Your kids say words and sentences! All M says is mum, dad, and melmo(elmo) Eeek! Should I be worried?

    Trish - We've actually hired one of those carpet cleaners before and it did a really good job on our rug, but the guy who usually does ours only charges $70 for x2 rooms plus the rug, so I'm just going to get him to do it again, save us having to worry about it.

    Have I told you lately how much I totally love that we get to do this together again??!!

    Auskick - is that like an AFL thing? I live in the heart of rubgy league country over here so I have no idea! Although DH and I have both said we don't want DS playing league...will be hard to keep him out of it if, as we suspect, he is going to be built for it like his dad and uncles were. We'd love both DD and DS to play soccer.

    ETA: Amber - absolutely not!! Language development is such a variable thing! I remember speaking to my MCH about it when DD was about this age. She told me there is no need for concern unless by about 3 years the child isn't talking well and can't be understood by anyone other than mum and dad. Totally nothing to worry about! DS seemed to literally take off over night and I think Trish said the same thing about K? So there's no telling when it will happen.
