WOW! I went out for the day and when I get back find that we have a new thread.  It is moving so fast.  Sorry if I miss anyone but there is so much to catch up on.

rorstey1 - Sounds like Tahlia is doing really well.  Can't wait for Chloe to start giggling, she did give me some cute smiles today and starting to make some small coos but think shes far of giggling.  Must be so precious though.

Mystic Gal - Thanks for commenting on our pics.  Belle is just absolutely gorgeous (think I have told you that before) but she is.  Don't think i'm as brave as you though.  Chloe likes to hold her head up when we are holding her and when shes lying on her tummy but not attempting to sit up yet.  Think I might get one of those pillows but.  Where did you get yours from?  Is it a certain brand?

Carmen - I agree with the Brauer's Colic relief.  We have been using it for just over a week now and have found that it works wonders.  Chloe doesnt particularily like the taste but she now brings her wind up without even patting or rubbing (9 times out of 10) and since doing so rarely have an unsettled night and she is only waking once during the night (previously 3hrly).  We initially tried the Infacol but it didnt agree with her at all.  She tolerated taking it a lot better but she was very pukey and made her wind worse.

Jenny77 - thanks for the comments on the photos.  Byron looks like a very alert little boy - very gorgeous.

Dimples81 - Thanks for your concern and comment about Chloe.  her rash seems to be clearing up really well.  Just a bit left on her back and arms.  Just worried that it will come back as I am really still unsure what it exactly was that i ate.  Am guessing by your username that you are also born in 1981.

Rose - Not sure whether you saw the post about me living in Forest Lake cause I went back and edited the message instead of just writing a new post so may have got missed.  Thanks for the comment on Chloes pics.  Hope that Josh's feeding pattern settles down for you soon.

Butterfly - Great to hear that the swing is working so well for you.  I hope that you bought spare batteries.  Keep a stash somewhere for next time.  Hehe.  What part of Forest lake fo your parents live?

Ryn - Sorry to hear that Dh isn't pulling his weight, can really make the difference.  BTW love your daughters name.

JellyBean - I love those beds if I had a boy would buy it of you myself.  Have you thought of putting up a flyer at you local shopping center/supermarket on their boards.  Might get some interest that way.  Because it is a big item people may not be as interested in buying over the net.

Petrie - how did your child health nurse appointment go.  Any luck with a mother's group?

Luchresa - Congrats on the first smile.  Chloe started smiling today also.  It is just such a special thing to watch them grow and learn all of these new things.

Jenks - Hope that all works out with Chelsea.  Just wondering should everyone take their bub to see a pead at a certain milestone or only if you have concerns?

Well I think thats all now for the questions.

1. What do you miss about being pregnant?
Definatley feeling her move around.  Sometimes I feel my stomache hoping to feel that sensation again.

2. What don't you miss about being pregnant?
The morning (should I say all day) sickness.  I ended up the hospital twice with dehydration and was on tablets and when they stopped working injections at the docs.

3. What do you love about being a mum?
Watching Chloe grow and learn.  I also just love holding her and watching her watching me knowing that she knows who I am and needs me.

4. How is your partner enjoying being a dad?
Absolutly loving it.  I think that he would trade places with me if he could.  Hates going to work and is always late (he used to be the first person to work most days).

An update on Chloe - she has started to be more aware of her world.  She is having much more wakful times and plays under her jungle gym and enjoys being interacted with and having little chats.  When I went to the dr she had put on 300grams since last Friday.  She is such a chubba.  She has been great today.  Slept while I went to the shops with a friend and has been really content. Hope that she is this good when I go to playgroup tomorrow.

Well think I have taken up enough space.

hugs to all

Hi All,

Well, not so little Grace is going well. She has put on 3 pounds and grown 3 inches in length in her first six weeks. We went to visit another mum and baby that were in hospital at the same time and little Molly is 3 days older and Grace looks about 4 weeks older than Molly!! We have a little chubba here!

Now to answer the questions...

1. What do you miss about being pregnant?
I didn't enjoy much of my pregnancy so nothing really.

2. What don't you miss about being pregnant?
Too much to list.

3. What do you love about being a mum?
Everything! We have been so lucky with a happy baby that sleeps well at night!

4. How is your partner enjoying being a dad?
Loving it. He wants his little girl to hurry up and grow up so he can take her out in the paddocks when he goes to work! I think she is growing up too quick already.

Anyway, better get tea started.

Evening Mummies & Babies

~carmenb ~ Thanks, i thought i was extremley brave too.. original.gif She has mastered turning around in her cot doing 180 degrees and laying across the cot and she kicks the side of the cot, ( little bugger wakes me up during the middle of the night )..

~KateE81~ Yeh my little girl is gorgeous and you have told me.. Chloe is gorgeous original.gif you can get them from ToysRus they are 50-60 dollars compared to $80 from babies gallore... Am sure she will start holding her head up soon.. it took belle awhile..

~Tildababy~ i know what you mean belle is 6kilos get her checked tomorrow my friend had her boy 3 days after belle was born and he is 7.2kilos alot bigger than belle..

~Rose~ How did it go at the parent interview???

~Eddiesmum~ i too thought they looked big on belle,so i have held off unti lshe is alitttle bigger... fold it in a triangle it's the best way..goto this website and they have ways to fold the nappies www.bigsofties.com.au

Is there any news if there is a catch up for the sydney mum's????

I have been using  cloth on Chloe since we left the hospital and yeah they make them have a big bum.  What fold are you using?  I use the Jo fold it is pretty compact and then a PUL cover during the day and a fleece at night.  Have a look at the photos in my Signature, she has cloth on in all of them.  I will also take some pics tomorrow of her with just her nappy no cover and post that for you.  Hope that helps.

There are some pretty good websites if you want more info on folding and on fitted nappies.  Have never used fitted ones but I have heard that they are a bit smaller (not as big bum) but main advantage is not having to fold them.

KateE81  My parents live in the first part of Forest lake that was built (mmm old part LOL) Not far from the Primary school.

JellyBean Congrats on getting 1st post original.gif

The morning sickness and last few weeks of the pregnancy - feeling exhausted all the time, heavy and unable to complete normal everyday tasks.

3. What do you love about being a mum?
Alot of things, having a gorgeous part of me and my husband born into this life and watching them grow and discover the world around them, being able to love someone so much it makes you cry and seeing their beautiful smiles after a hard days work lights up my life.

Loving it - though this is third time round for us, he still lays there on the bed next to AJ admiring him and chatting to him. So lovely to watch wink.gif

Is anyone planning babys christening yet?

I had both Rhys' and Georgia christened quite young,so i figured i better pull my finger out and start planning..lol.I'm hoping for Cooper to wear Rhys' christening outfit.I put it in to be drycleaned on monday,as it had bad yellow mark right down the front.I have to pick it up this morning and i have my fingers crossed that they were able to get it clean.I think it will be very nice for Cooper to be able to wear his big brother outfit.Ohh wish me luck.I'll be pretty upset if they are unable to get it out sad.gif ...

I thought since I am such a serial lurker and everyone would be seeing my name at the bottom of the page that I had better let you know that I have changed my user name from Mummy2jake to JEZ.

I am really naughty as I love to read where everyone is up to however very rarely post myself. Jake is at preschool this morning, Em is happy watching the wiggles and Zoe is asleep at present so I thought I had better make an effort.

I will attempt a couple of personals but they are really old ones that have stuck in my mind.

GHE – Did you work out what you are going to do in regard to contraception? I fell pregnant with Zoe whilst breastfeeding Em so I wouldn’t rely on it to much as a contraception option unless you don’t mind having a fourth. Amazingly it took us 18 months of Clomid to conceive Jake, Six months naturally to conceive Em and Zoe was whilst breastfeeding. Admitably Em was only having about 4 -6 feeds a day.
Did anyone PM you in regard to the list? I really don’t think I am the person for the job as I very rarely post. Love the photo of AJ. He is so cute.

LUCHRESA – I think it was you that mentioned the snuggle beds. I love mine we have used it for all three of our babies and I think it is one of the best things we bought.

BUTTERFLY- I love that photo of Phoenix

Welcome to the new mums that have joined us and hi to everyone else. I really should be getting organised but want to answer the questions first.

Question Time

1.What do you miss about being pregnant?

Definitely feeling Zoe move. I absolute love that. Strangely enough also my
doctors appointments. I love my Doctor and his wife who sees you first and does your blood pressure, weight etc. I miss our chats.

2. What don’t you miss about being pregnant?

Morning sickness and being so uncomfortable

3. What do you love about being a Mum?

Watching them grow and learn and knowing that DH and I have created three beautiful children

4. How is your partner enjoying being a Dad?

Since it is third time around for us not much has changed. Although I do think that DH hasn’t gotten used to having three yet.

Hopefully it wont be to long better post for me in future.

Take Care

Hi Girls
Hope your all having a good morning.  

Just a quick post while Byron is sleeping and before the inlaws get here.  Byron is doing well not much to report he is feeding and sleeping well and staying up for longer times during the day but still only sleeping four hours at night.  He is smiling more and is much more alert I am really enjoying this time with him.  I booked him in yesterday for his two month immunisations (ouchy) whilst I was at my 6 week check up which went well.  I am going to buy a baby sling today so I can carry him easily when on the plane next week when we fly up to Townsville.

Will come back later for personals, hubby is working late so should have plenty of time later to catch up on threads.

Have a great day biggrin.gif  tongue.gif

Sydney Meet - Nat - what day was best for everyone?? I'm willing for anyday, btw.

If anyone wants to add me to MSN - its jonesee_chick@hotmail.com

My Baby weighs 5kgs now yay! She's starting to settle into herself now... Not as much screaming antics going on at night.

Although W. p*sses me off when he talks to her when she's whinging... So I told him that too, so his tone of voice has changed, it was the tone that was annoying me.

Have a friend that I met on the net about 5 years ago and her kids coming over today, they live on the central coast, and I haven't seen her since before she had her first bub - who is now just over 2! So it'll be good to catch up with her and her DF - Who I set her up with original.gif

ETA - Questions!

1. What do you miss about being pregnant?
Feeling Jade move, and the excuse of being pregnant (ya'll know what I mean wink.gif)

2. What don't you miss about being pregnant?
Bloody Sore hips, and looking like a huge elephant!

3. What do you love about being a mum?
Jade. I just love EVERYTHING about her, the way she sleeps, the way she "talks, her smiles.. everything.
4. How is your partner enjoying being a dad?
Well he isn't my partner anymore, but he loves being a dad. Couldn't ask for anyone better, and even though he p*sses me off at times, I know how much he loves Jade.

Christening - I need to get my a*se into gear and ask him who he wants as god parents LOL.. I've got my cousins gown to wear, but not sure how old she was when she got christened. Also need to find a church of england church around Blacktown (anyone know?!) my old church was next to Blacktown Workers Club, that's where I got christened. And unfortunately, we can only have it on a Sunday these days, (do they do them on Sundays?)

Funny you mention the contraception issue...i have my appointment with my OBGYN on the 6th of March, and im hoping to discuss my options with her then, though at this stage its looking like the copper IUD (as i had issues with the Mirena).

Ive been feeding pretty frequently, so although i know its not reliable, i doubt id be pregnant in this short period... well i hope not anyway LOL.

Re: the list, yep someone PMed me for it and i have emailed it to them a while ago...hopefully it will be up soon - its quite a daunting task.

Ouch - for some reason my nipples are sooo sore (i think its due to a cut/crack) i dread feeding times it kills so much...ahhh, if its not one thing its the other!

Hi All,

Well Eddie and I are off to Sydney this afternoon! Wish me luck!! I hope DP is there at the airport on time as I've got soooo much stuff hehe

First night home alone last night... very scary but we got throught it! Little monkey decided that he didn't want to go to bed so at 12:30 I gave in and he slept with me. He didn't wake till 4:30 then 7:30 so not too bad!

Kate: Thanks for the info, I'll try the Jo Fold, I'm getting more used to the look, I think i need some better covers I've only got the ones from Target.

Butterfly: Cool, that's what I've been doing re wind. Poor little guy keeps waking himself up with the pain. Love the thumb sucking pic!!

G.H.E: Great pic of AJ original.gif how cute

Got his 4 week check up today as well, Can't wait too see how much he has grown as It's hard to tell when you see them everyday original.gif

Phoenix has Conjuntivits (sp) GRRRRR Off to the Dr this arvo.   I feel so mean squirting Breast milk into his eye's sad.gif But was told by the clinic lady this morning that is one of the best things for it. I think Phoenix thinks it is a new way of feeding LOL he smiles at me when I do it. wacko.gif

OH did you know  some athalets pay $50 PER oz for breastmilk? OMG  they drink it to help build up their immunity.(sp)

Posted 23 February 2006 - 01:51 PM


jayamyc- Well, we have sent the invites out and Grace's Christening is going to be on the 19th March. Grace's Aunt and Uncle asked us when she wasn't even a week old when we would be getting her Christened as they wanted to make sure they were able to make it as they get really busy work wise at the end of March, so we worked it around them. It was so hard picking godparents but we finally settled on my brother (as Grace was born on his B'day), her Aunty Susan (my SIL) and our matron of honour (best friend). I didn't want just Aunties and Uncles. Now it is down to the finger food for afterwards.

DH & I still had our christening dresses but my mum went and bought her granddaughter the most gorgeous dress. The lady in the shop said you can get each child's name embroidered on the dress which we thought was a nice idea. Whether we do it or not is another question.

Anyway, I have had a few days out and the house looks like a bomb hit it!! While my gorgeous little girl sleeps I had better get as much done as I can.

Catch you later

#22 JEZ

Posted 23 February 2006 - 02:21 PM

Wow twice in one day for me must be a record.

G.H.E. – You have me interested now. Do you mind sharing you experience with the Mirena. Why I ask is because I got it fitted yesterday!!!!!!

EddiesMum – How did the 4 week check up go? You will have to let us know how your trip went.

Attersee – How are you going? I haven’t seen a post from you in a while

Mystic Gal – I can’t believe how often you get to post. Always look forward to reading them. Hope you managed to get a sleep. I was hoping for one this afternoon but it is not to be unfortunately. By the time I got Zoe to sleep and was resting on the lounge, DH popped home and woke Emma up so not sleep for me now and a very cranky toddler. GRRRRR. At least it was good to see him for the 2 minutes he was here.

Jenn77 – How did the visit with the inlaws go

Nic – I here you on the 2 yr old being a shocking sleeper. What does Elyssa do or not do might be the question? Emma (who is two nest month) wont go to sleep by herself (even sharing a room with Jake hasn’t helped) and was coming in to our room every night and sleeping on the floor beside my side of the bed. We now let her go to sleep on her floor and for the past 4 nights it has a least stopped her coming into our room.
OMG you are doing Uni with 3 littlies. You are to organised. Go Girl.

Butterfly – I have heard that breast milk is best for things like conjunctivitis. At least Phoenix has a good sense of humour about it and gives you those beautiful smiles. How did the doctors appointment go? I could make a fortune with selling breastmilk if I was bothered to express.

KateE81 – I could just watch the pictures of Chloe all day. She is so cute.

Tildababy- You certainly are organised with your Christening. Good luck getting the house clean. Mine never stays clean for long at all.

Christening – I would really love to have Zoe Christened before April as SIL is due in April and I don’t want a joint Christening however I can’t see that we will be organised beforehand as we have Em’s birthday next month and DH has commitments nearly every weekend from now until end of April.

MummyBinda – How did the visit go with your friend? Bet they loved Jade

Had Zoe weighed this morning and she is now 4.62kg. Currently she feeds every three hours at night and I am waking her through the day after three hours hoping the more she drinks through the day the less she will want at night. I am envious of you girls who are getting great sleeps. Enjoy. Saturday night however she fed every hour from 12.00pm until 7.00am. Made for one very tired Mummy I can tell you. Otherwise things are going great here. Just waiting for the bus to drop Jake home from preschool. Got to love the bus they run as Jake used to cry as he didn’t want to stay and Emma used to cry because she wanted to stay so I wasn’t looking forward to adding Zoe to the situation as well. The bus certainly has saved my sanity. We are hopefully going swimming this afternoon when DH gets home from work.

. What do you miss about being pregnant?
Nothing this time

2. What don't you miss about being pregnant?
Worrying about what I eat and missing out on stuff. Nausea.

3. What do you love about being a mum?
Looking at a sleeping baby on my boob or in my arms. Talking with my toddler and messing around with him. What I don't enjoy (lol) when the little brat doesn't do as he is told or hurts his baby brother sad.gif Lots of settling in issues going on here!

4. How is your partner enjoying being a dad? He loves it and wishes we'd done it earlier (typical hey lol). Mentioned having 4 the other day!

Baptism - won't think about it til spring. I was going to do Elijah is spring and ended up being the following autumn so he was a toddler. That was a good age.

Contraception - I have the mini-pill and will start it on Monday. A bit nervous as I didn't use it last time. BF is good if you don't mind another bub coming and maybe coming earlier than expected lol. I think you can use it if you are really clued into your ovulation signs so you know when you are fertile again as well.

gotta check on babes - sleeping off colds today so I have some "me" time original.gif

OK everyone...The question was asked who volunteered to take the list from Ghada and it was me. Firstly I would like to thank and congratulate her on a fantastic job that she has done throughout the 9 or so months that we were in the DIJ group. It's a big job!!!

For the memory of our DIJ group here is the list once more...

I would like to stress for all the new comers to the Jan 06 parents group, if you would like to be added to this list please message me the details and I will add you. Please don't feel left out.

~The journey continues...into our final month~

"Even though you may be feeling as big as a house, your previous digestive problems and shortness of breath should ease up as the baby's head drops into your pelvic cavity. Sleeping will become more difficult, and you may be having more Braxton Hicks contractions, which will give you a chance to practice your breathing techniques.

By the 40th week, you will probably be feeling very heavy and tired. You may have pain in your groin and pins and needles in your legs as the baby presses into your pelvis. Your skin may feel tight and stretched. Braxton Hicks contractions may increase in frequency and in strength. Now it's only a matter of time!

Your baby is now fully formed and, if it is a boy, his testicles should have descended. Baby's fingernails are surprisingly long and it may have scratched himself. The vernix has mostly disappeared. Baby will gain weight at the rate of about an ounce per day during the last month before the birth."

Hey girls original.gif

Just a quick reply to JEZ - with the Mirena apparently its got the least side effects for most women, but unfortunately for me it wasnt the case. I had recurrent infections in that area, pain and shocking mood swings..took it out then fell preg with AJ original.gif (Planned though) I had it in for 8 months, they say you never really know if its suitable till youve had it in for at least 3 months. Fingers crossed it works well for you. It seems hormonal contraceptives dont mix well with my body LOL.

Hmm i dont know why some of you can see the pic and others cant, lol, very weird. Ill try and post it a different way:

Hey Peta original.gif Thank you so much for taking the overwhelming task off my hands original.gif Ive enjoyed creating it for the last 9 months original.gif original.gif original.gif
