Jerry – not sure about bedrest…will see Ob later this month. Last time it all happened in a mad panic at 22weeks.  This time I will get my suture at 14 weeks, hopefully that will prevent the early funneling.  No idea though.  For now..DP is still at home with his back…yes… I hear you say… it has indeed been 6 months.  Who knows how much longer he is here.  If he is back at work I will make my daybed in the lounge.. Harry proof it and have all the toys and activities limited there so we can do a lot together but limit my movements.  We don’t have family here…we’ll make do.

Babies throwing food -  My GP, bless her, informs me this is called “casting” and an important part of development.  *hmmppff*

Kerry – they have to be kidding with their criteria re centrelink grant.

– I used to have to read twice, but was getting used to having an “almost” twin.

Chook – how’s hubby’s head?  Ohh 3h’s

Torito – yep, hanging around the due in group but wont join until it has been made super official after GP appointment.  Have an early OB appointment later this month to make sure January doesn’t get repeated.  

Tinkster – in that case… happy trying

List – sure..chop away   anything to be able to keep track better

Twins – shhhhhhhhhhhh  no mention of multiples.  DP and I both, independently of each other (and for different reasons)..have had the twin feeling.  Neither of us have twins in the family so it is highly unlikely… just freaky.

GIO – have you had a 21day blood test to see if you are ovulating? Or are you guessing?

Alchemy – hello stranger  good to have you back.

HA!! Jane… I wondered the same about Kerry’s foot!! Nor do I know what Spinifex was doing under a tree. Must have missed something somewhere….  

– Harry still gets the newborn formula.  Never did go up to the follow on formula..and now I am mixing it with cows milk again anyway.  Right now his favourite food in the world is Hot CRoss buns (not the glazed ones).

Time for Antiques Roadshow and Harry to wake....

Kerry - i've been thinking of you, how hard it must be

Meg77 - i'm sorry to hear about the end of the bf for you. have you investigated bf friendly medicine? I did grieve after DS weaned. Grieve all you like here. Its interesting how society thinks 12 months is time to stop bf. I got a comment today while i was feeding Eve.

Alchemy - this is for you  hands.gif  Did you know, most 'gods/goddesses' seem to be about fertility/procreation, and the first Commandment God gave was to 'Go forth and have lots of sex and babies', so i dunno if your prayers will work.

My aim for the next thread is to do better personals, maybe even as good as Torito did this thread, i'm impressed (or was it someone else... mind fogging)

Anyways, its been a good read.

funny you say that - adrian had the 'vibe' as well, even after the first u/s where there was only one laughing2.gif ID twins are spontaneous ........

meg - vent away hun - you have done so bloody well, i'm in awe of anyone that can bf as i couldn't - power to you hun getting so far and i know how i felt after 8w, let alone this time sad.gif

we had a mini 'performance' tonight from isabelle - she decided milk didn't come from cups afterall so after half an hour of perservering she's in bed, no milk - she'll be sweet though - she'll wake up if she's hungry and honestly the amt that child eats i'm not stressed.

ahhhh the silence original.gif

Torito and Jane01 - thank you so much, what you said to me meant a lot, I feel I'm doing the best I can!

And Torito and Dehelan congratulations, believe it or not, no matter how challenging my last year has been, I'm terribly jealous!

just a note about the speech thing, I was really worried about this, more because of Joseph's ear infections etc and the fact that he can't seem to make any sounds other than an 'a' or 'ah' sound, like Dah, Mah, Pa, Nah etc.  I was worried he couldn't make sounds like "oh" as in pop. (not necessarily saying pop but the o sound.

Anyway ramble ramble, my BIL is a speech pathologist, more with kids a bit older, however he and asked if Joseph understood things, and that it doesn't matter what they call things, as long as they are able to start to recognise certain things have certain names, am I making sense?

So your baby might know what a bottle is, or what a book is, apparantly that is almost more important than actually saying the word right now.  Associating a word with an object.

So I've been testing Joseph and was pleasantly surprised, I asked him today to get a book, and opened my hands like a book, and he got me one.  I asked where the dog was and he gazed outside, which was more than enough for me.

Joseph's speech is not very clear at all, but at least he's starting to understand things, I just wish he'd understand NO! LOL!

off to Pt Turton for easter so have a great break everyone!
