    hi everyone!

    hope you are your toddlers are enjoying this weekend! my little monkey is in bed so i am catching up on "stuff"... although i really need to do some uni reading!!

    @junglemum : thanks for your book recommendations: note to self, i will check out:
    Toddler tactics
    mums of boys
    what every parent needs to know

    = @~Cheshire~; : how was the iron infusion? have you had many done in the past? i had about 3 done a few years ago and then managed to get on top of my ferrotin (sp?) levels and have managed to avoid infusions by taking 2 iron supplements daily.

    @everyone : sorry i've been a weak-link, in terms of posts, i'm still finding my feet on this site.

    just to be terribly lazy, i've copied some of another link i wrote in another forum, to give a quick update of my life.....

    AFM : life has been busy, doing god-knows-what i don't know!!

    yesterday i took my son to the allergist for a penicillin challenge test (last september he came out in hives after finishing a course of penicillin - we were trying to work out whether it was the antibiotics or a reaction to the infection)

    then i went into uni, borrowed some books on creating a passionate marriage, recommended by one of the eds on this site. sadly, it will be another one of the books delegated to hubby to read until i finish exams on feb 18.

    @everyone: speaking of uni - i am still enrolled in semester 1 next year.... i have until march 31 to un-enrol. can i have your thoughts ladies re: being enrolled in a uni subject when i will be giving birth in week 5 of semester????? i would be studying online by distance, so i could listen to the lectures/do the readings whenever it suited me. i figure that i'll just wait and see how it goes (maybe post up a general thread with my question)... any prior experience girls?

    and THEN last night i went to a friend's hens night party. i was already exhausted when i got there (don't you love that feeling) but felt quite liberated at being out. no jokes, our waiter looked like fabio - and this was just a local pub. poor guy, this gaggle of girls kept finding excuses to bring him to our table!

    so i got home by 11.30pm (very tame!!) but still feel absolutely WRECKED today. no doubt 'cos my son woke up several times, and i think the past few weeks of uni assignments/reading is catching up with me.

    today we are just taking it easy (yay!), with a bit more uni reading whilst my son sleeps.

    so that's it - have a great one y'all!

    Tanya

    Popping in to say hi.

    Life's been pretty **** for us lately, as some of you have read. We're trying to keep it all together, and slowly getting there. One day at a time.

    I had my appointment with my ob about my fibroids and he said not to operate and get them removed. So that's something positive at least! Now the decision of TTC is totally up to us, if and when. We're not in a financial position to do it now, so we'll wait and see what's down the track. Maybe we'll win tattslotto! DD is going really well, she's chatting and singing away all the time. We catch her in the car, singing to whatever song is on the radio, her voice goes up and down properly with the notes. For all that her hip problems set her back physically, the time she couldn't move around certainly let her language escalate. We're getting just the odd tantrum now and then, so hopefully that will fizzle out and not peak up again.

    Tanya - did you get results for your son's test? How did it go?

    Cheshire - ??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!?!? Looking through for personals and noticed something!!!! Fess up girl!!!!!! No wonder you have no energy!

    Dam that was quick MG, i only just changed my sig 10mins ago
    It's still only very early & i thought it may have been a chemical because the lines were so faint but i finally got a decent dark line today & a few of the TTC girls confirmed they can all see a decent line so i feel slightly more confident that this one will be sticky.
    I'm not making any announcements & trying not to get my hopes till after i see my GP.

    Thanks MG i have evrything crossed that this one is sticky. I should know by next week
    We only started this month, I finally got the all clear by my specialist so we decided to start right away.
    I guess that's why i don't really believe it, seems too good to be true.

    As i said in the other thread, i'm always here if u need to chat

    Thanks Mo and I've got everything crossed for you.

    Kel - Time is flying (although probably doesn't feel like it for you!) I remember being pg, those nine months felt like forever....

    hi y'all

    @PacRakMG : re: my son's penicillin allergy test - we haven't got a "result" as yet, as he didn't have any visible reaction (as yet). we just finished the 7-day course of anti-biotics yesterday and last time he didn't show any reaction until after the course had finished. (then he came out in these huge hives)....
    if nothing happens, then we don't know for sure whether the hives was just a reaction to the middle-ear infection (i'm hoping this is the case, as a penicillin allergy would be a pain)

    @~Chesire~ good luck with your BFP!

    @kellbell : so another 2-year space gapper? ours will be almost 2 years to the day (but hopefully not spot on!)... this second baby is due 2 days after #1 but #1 was 2 weeks early

    AFM: i had a terrible day with DS yesterday - i personally think it was due to the penicillin (i guess i needed a reason for it).... but now i'm dreading the thought of having a cholicky baby, as his grumpy mood was hard for me to handle. He is normally a chirpy lad (which i guess makes a mood swing like this even harder to manage) but yesterday would not take him nap - mummy is NOT ready for a sleep-free day!! and was pretty grizzly and inconsolable the whole day. every time i needed to role my eyes, i reminded myself that there is usually a reason for whenever he behaves like this (upset tummy or some kind of sickness) but i felt pretty broken yesterday. i couldn't imagine having a kid with a real behaviour disorder (touch wood, and kudos to any of you that are in this situation).

    my psychology exam is creeping up - feb 17, so it's time for me to hit the books and get focused (as much as one can focus at 30 weeks pregnant!). Today I'm reading about infant development, which I find really interesting....

    have a great weekend y'all!

    Todays line is almost a dark as the control so feeling confident that this one is sticky
    Bambi has the same EDD as Maddi did, wonder if Bambi will be early as well.

    Tanya hope today is a better today for you & good luck with your exam.

    Yay Kell your so close now

    Congrats Cheshire! Hoping it is a sticky one for you.

    Tanyaya - I actually have a penicillin allergy and it hasn't been a problem, there are antibiotic alternatives for everything I've ever needed but hopefully, you won't have to worry about that

    Can't believe how close some people are to having another baby!! That is so exciting!

    MG - I'm still here, completely single so no chance of a baby in the near future it has been hard watching others have siblings but I don't know if I could cope with two, DD is a bit of a bossy boots in this house!!

    Hi Girls, just popping my head back in to say hello. I haven't been around much lately.

    Congrats Mo! Fingers crossed for a sticky bub

    We aren't planning any more babies yet, maybe in 6 months time, I would love to give DD a baby brother or sister. My sister is due in April and DD is so excited about the baby, it's very cute to watch.

    Welcome Tanya and hi to everyone else, will try to get back in here a bit more often

    Toddler taming is by Steve Biddulf. Very good but written in the 90s. Also wrote raising Boys. Also good.

    OK my first proper post in months!
    Hello again all!
    Sounds like lots has been happening for everyone - some great news, some trauma and overcoming.
    We have been busy as DH is recording and mix/mastering an album for a guy at the moment and we have all been involved.
    I am back at work after a 3 week break. We went to Bendigo for part of the recording process.
    Tirion is getting more 2 every day - you know the bossy thing and the loudening demands.
    Welcome to Tanaya - and dont give in if you can summon the courage girl. Believe me by teenage they just walk all over yo if you do. Also dont feel bad when you do give in though coz that is completely normal. They need to know that you are in control of the situation when they are feeling out of control (shrieking, flailing etc.). All the best stuff I have read and experienced confirms this. Hold them and reassure them but dont give them what they want all the time or they will struggle with instant gratification and have a sense of entitlement like the rest of gen Y when they grow up (well a lot of them will anyway). Sorry to all the Gen y ers in this post - not wanting to dig - its probably gen z now any how. I like to be a bit controversial in my posts and have a bit of an opinion but I am 42 with 2 teens and a toddledr so think i have a bit of life experience to go with the attitude. TIOLI.


    We are considering a sib close in age for T this month. Finally weaned in December!!
    PRMG - Finances are the biggest obstacle too - but I will need to do it before too long as I wreckon I would like no more than a 3 year gap.
    Hey I had fibroids but the doc didnt recommend treatment either. Apparently they are normalish.

    SP - Yeah, I know fibroids are normal, problem is the positioning with mine. When I was pg, one grew to about 6cm and it was in the birth canal, so we weren't sure that DD would be able to engage. Problem for me was if I had to have a c/s, there was another large fibroid where the incision needs to go, leaving me with no choice but to have a vertical incision. Lucky DD got past the fibroid, but the ob told me to look into getting them removed before falling pg again. He's decided now that I'm better off leaving them alone.

    PRMG - It sounds like you went through quite an ordeal with those fibroids. It can be quite a problem if they are in a bad spot. I cant remember what you said in the previous post exactly. Are you still having them removed?
