Jodes – We can all understand you not posting. Just take it easy. Sorry to hear you’re still not 100%. I know what you mean about the docs. Last year when I was having all of my trouble I was sick of them. Felt like a human pin cushion. How cute that Miss B is a little helper. Now I’m kicking myself saying that as I have a shadow. Everyone tells me how cute it is. Okay, yes it is cute but I really would like to be able to go to a room in the house without a small person following me. Especially the toilet! I quite like going there on my own. But a certain little Miss can’t understand this and stands at the door banging on it. Ah, no peace in my house. I’ll get to my own personals after I’ve done the others. (just for you wub.gif )
Kate – Sorry to hear you’re still not well.
Annette – Your kids are too cute to be feral.
Melinda – I’m sorry your darling girl has been sick. Thank goodness she’s on the mend. It must melt your heart to see them being loving to each other.

Okay now on to me. (obviously the most important part of your day cool.gif ) I have a cold that Emma kindly gave to me. At least I don’t have a sick child anymore. Mandy, you’re not going to believe it (we were talking about this in the last thread) DH actually got up on Sunday morning and fed Emma. I DIDN’T get out of bed.  ohmy.gif Maybe that’s why I’m sick. Heart failure. laugh.gif  I’m now 12 weeks. I’m a little excited and nervous today as I go for my scan that tests for Down’s. Actually, I’m more worried the doc will spill the beans on the sex. It’s something that we both just don’t want to know. Work still sucks but there’s only three weeks left so I’m clinging to that. And I can go home at 12:30 in the last week. On Sunday we went to a Wimbeldon thing at the cricket club and I’ve discovered that I am the proud owner of a dancing queen. My girl did not stop dancing the whole day. One guy said, “There’s cute kids and then there’s Emma.” She is just so gorgeous. When I leave for work now she says, “Bye-bye, see ya.” And blows me a kiss. I’m really looking forward to coming to Oz. Who’s up Gold Coast way around the 25-31 July? Chris and Anna we started organizing a Melbourne meet last night but never really got anywhere. What about one at the beginning and one at the end of my trip. That way people can choose to come to one or both. I’m not sure how much internet access I’ll have when I’m home so it would be great if we could sort it out in the next three weeks. Actually, if someone from the Gold Coast and someone from Melbourne could PM me their phone numbers then at least if I don’t have email access, you guys can organize something and I’ll call you. Okay, enough rambling from me. Have a great day everyone.

Yep, still waiting to be disconnected!! Certainly hope they aren't this slack with reconnecting us rant.gif
Raining and very cold here today.  I am supposed to be at work, but have absolutely no voice and coughing like mad so a day at home. Kept Emily home too because I just can't be bothered taking her into kindy, lol.  Plus since I work there, I don't want to go in, he he.  Went to docs yesterday and I have a chest infection and am on antibiotics.  Hope all is better by next week, I have to work 5 days and step up to do the directors job whilst she is on hols.

Since it is raining, I am having a relaxing and lazy day.  Gonna sit back and watch the midday movie whilst munchkin is asleep. Been so busy with moving etc I feel I have earnt a quiet day off.  We will actually move into the house on Saturday so that is very exciting.  probably about 3/4 unpacked so far.

My Grandma is off to the docs again today. she has been very sick lately, lots of vomiting and not eating a thing. Not good for a diabetic. She has lost 9kgs too.  Mum is coping ok with looking after her, a few tough days but all in all not too bad.

Emily, like all of yours, also loves tissues and wipes. She is happy to have just one, and then proceeds to clean the floor, her toys, anything really. She loves to "clean".  She is talking heaps and is doing really well with animal sounds at the moment.  Cracks me up!! She is 17 months today!!!

Annette - happy 19 months to the darling Isabelle. Hope she feels better soon and you too!! Yay for Rylin saying Dad - what a clever boy.

Rachel - goodluck with the scan!!!  Will def catch up with you when you are on the Gold coast. The other girls are in South Brissie - but hopefully someone else will be able to make it too. Will pm you my numbers as I will be offline soon.

Kate - congrats on gold!!!!

Melinda - so gorgeous that your two are being so loving and caring to each other.

Hi to everyone else.  Going to go and have some lunch now.

Bye for now!

Just a quick one from me as Tahlia is being naughty and playing with the VCR and DVD players!!! ahhh!!

Anyways....I hope all the sickies are feeling better soon!!!

A question: I have been feeling movements...ie little flicks on my right side and yesterday I felt a little flick on the left.  Could bub get that far over or is there a chance there may be more than 1.  Definitely bub I can feel as it is the same as with Tahlia.  I am very sensitive down there...can feel ovulation at times.  WDYT??

HI everyone

rorstey - I've got no idea about the movement thing....I'm just impressed you feel anything so soon...you must be having a scan soon right?

Jayla - ok I'll post a belly pic of me if you promise to post one of you! And everyone else needs to show & tell as well.

I'm bloody huge now....fat mostly..this one is from almost 2 weeks ago at 21 weeks, I feel very blimpish:

...ok so I've shared....NEXT!!!

Oh yeah and for the list...I'm having a SURPRISE!

Amy - sorry about your BFN, but if you're happy to hold off now then all the best for another couple of months time.

Peta - congrats on the home loan, must be exciting! I can't wait till we sell this place & leave & go "shopping" for a new house.

michelle - hope your better soon.

mystic - what clever munchkins you've got there with their talking! We are definitely still doing one word at a time in this house...no sentences here, except for maybe "poo, yuck" lol!

rachel - I am always so impressed with your personal effort. And actually your little "me" update was actually about the most exciting thing in my day so far lol!

melinda - your munchkins sound so cute!

Jodes - I've got one of those shadows/helpers too!

Ok, well I think I hear Zay stirring...he had THE worst day yesterday. He was pretty sorry for himself with his teething & was just crying over EVERYTHING! Like his little world was ending. I was very sympathethic though lol! So far today has been not too bad so hope the arvo is ok & doesn't bring too many tears.

Monique xx

Hey Chris, I'll take yours for a week then you can take mine.....ohhhhh, imagine the serenity!

When it rains it fricken pours  cry1.gif

We found out dog has passed away this afternoon.  It has been raining all day and I hadn't seen him.  The vet thinks that he died of a heart attack being so old and it being so cold here atm.  We have had him since he was born being a pup of my SIL's dog so been with us a very long time.  He was 11 year old and such a beautiful dog.  I am going to miss him so much as will my DH and Chloe she just loved him.

Why did he have to die?  He didnt seem old even though he was still such a pup at heart and so loveable.  I don't know what to say to Chloe she wont understand I dont think that he is not there when she goes outside.  Not that I will either TBH.

Well gotta go can't see the screen anymore.

Hi everyone biggrin.gif

Kerrie- congrats on our little girl.

Monique- I will post a belly pic soon, i dont have a camera at the moment but ive been borrowing my brothers every so often so i can take pics of chloe so i dont miss out on her growing up. I cant believe the size of zays ice cream, look so yummy tho. By the way you dont look huge original.gif

Jody- wow 8 weeks to go, have you got my new phone number? im pretty sure i sent it to you in an sms but cant remember, let me know, if not i will send it to you, certainly dont want to miss out on the birth news! looking forward to the scan on friday, im getting excited now, please dont scare me by saying there mght be 2! i think i would faint lol

Kate- im so sorry to hear of your dog passing, its such a sad thing and certainlyis losing a treadured part of the family, i lost my little doggy not so long ago and i was devestated. Sending hugs your way and get well vibes to you also.

Rach- must be something going on, my Dh has been getting up for chloe during the night! She has been unwell and i just couldnt cope on my own. Feel sick if i dont get enough sleep, dh could see i was struggling and is helping out and i didnt have to say anything. Looking forward to catching up with you. Ive pm'd my phone numbers aswell, im sure you have already got numbers from the others.

Well im feeling alot better, although still have days where i gag for no reason and still feel a bit yuck at times but it is livable and i can do everyday things unlike the last time i was still bedridden at this point so im very pleased.
I know that you show earlier with second pregnancys but gee i didnt expect a belly already.
You can tell im preggers, even my mum made a comment on my size compared to last time.
My jeans are getting tight already..

chloe is doing alot better and is nearly over her virus.
We bought a second hand toddler bed for Chloe and she had her first day sleep in it today, with no problems. Went straight to sleep like normal. She looked so tiny in it, curled up in the middle. will just put her in it for day sleeps until she gets used to it and them go on to the nights, as we all know she is not hte best night sleeper lol.

One thing tho is im so over her whinging evey time she cant have her way, i feel like im saying no all day and she is crying all day.

well thats about it from me

take care

Hi Girls

rorstey With both Phoenix and Dominic I felt movements very early on and all over my belly so it is possible.

Kate hhugs.gif

ddance.gif ddance.gif ddance.gif

Dominic at 11pm last night sucked boobie like a pro ddance.gif He has had NO expressed milk since then. He is so much like he big brother that way lol. Phoenix did the same day 4 latched on and knew what to do original.gif

We had a scare I did not want to say to much but Dominic was not peeing what he should have been  cry1.gif And 2 pees almost 12  hours apart had a little blood in it. They ended up getting us to wrap up his doodle with cotton wool to get a really good idea what and how much. He ended up at 9.30pm (so lucky as at 10pm he was to go back up) He peed and OMG did he pee  laughing2.gif There was a little blood but pink colour and not much so they told us to watch next pee. Well OMG he is now peeing through to his cloths  tongue.gif And it is all normal original.gif tho they want us tomorrow to catch a pee in a bag the midwife is bringing over to test just in case and My Dr on Thursday is to also check him totally out original.gif But he is doing very well now.

Hey Guys,

I'm kid free for another night!!!! I miss her soo much, but boy, I needed the break!!!

My House is almost spotless!!!! Waz just has to take a few bags of clothes to the charity bins, and I need to clean the bedroom, and then its DONE!!!! ohmy.gif

All my clothes are now in boxes, so when Jade and I move out, won't take much - Jade's summer clothes are now in a box with my clothes too. I really need to sort out my scrapbooking stuff, and find a container that will hold everything - so that's still on the dining room table - and I have managed to do one page tonight too!!!

Kate - I'm sorry to hear about your Doggy. Hopefully he passed away without too much pain, and is now playing in Doggy Heaven. Hope Chloe doesn't miss him too much :bighugs:

Cass - Woohooo @ Dominic sucking like a pro!!! I miss b/f'ing soo much, and wish I had a newborn again... Cluck Cluck! SO what does your little man look like on Day 4??? wink.gif

Chris - Send Miss Lil my way tonight, Jade's cot is empty, and I keep looking at it, and wondering where she is wub.gif

MIL is looking after Jade - she went there last night at 7ish, and we were going to pick her up this afternoon, but decided to leave her til tomorrow morning, so I could get everything finished... Which, I won't - 'cause All Saints starts soon!!

Monique: Wow you look great!! I've got a pic just need to upload it from the camera which is in DPs car. Will do tomorrow, i'll be taking a new one in two weeks for 30weeks. Hope Zay gets better soon.. poor little man, Eddie was like that on sat and sunday, nothing would make him better.

Rachael: Did you want to catch up during the day, with kiddies or at night for a dinner? You guys can meet here at my place if you like, i work tues to thur though. There is a play cafe across the road, which is great for the kids to entertain themselves and we can have a coffe or lunch and a chat!

Me: not much going on today, have a day off tomorrow to go to a hosp apt and mum is comming over to help steam clean the carpets. Have a friend staying for a couple of weeks while he finds a place to live so i need to clean out the spare room as well. So much for a relaxing day off!! lol.

Amy – I would love to get away with Grace and DH but unfortunately it isn’t an option with drought feeding stock still! It is a wonderful suggestion. It does feel rotten to feel this way but hopefully I will turn the corner again soon. I have to try hard to see and feel the positive side of things…like I normally can. Hope you aren’t getting a yucky bug.

Michelle – Thanks for the well wishes….positive thoughts are high on my priority list!

Annette – I hope I can feel better soon too….trying hard!

Kate – Hope you get over your yucky cold really soon. Take care of yourself!!

Kerrie – Congratulations on your little pink bundle!! How exciting. I have to wait 13 weeks to find out what our little surprise is!

Monique – My mum has come to me!! I really want to stay at home with DH after having so much time away when I had the really bad morning sickness. Mum has been great and is going to come out again next week for a day or two if I need it. Just having someone to talk to can make all the difference. I will post a belly pic soon! By the way..loves Zays Mr Whippy shots.

Jody – Thanks for the well wishes. How exciting…only 8 weeks to go!!

Gayle – Thanks for the well wishes. I welcome big hugs anytime!

Rachel – Thanks for your support…means a lot!! If only I lived a little closer to where you are visiting when you come home to Australia I would catch up with you. By the way I have copied your idea on posting. Makes life easier doesn't it.

Jodes – You certainly would be over going to the Dr. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Michelle – Hope you move goes well. Not long now!

PetrieH -  Fantastic news about your house…hope the next month goes quickly for you.

Rorstey – I didn’t feel any movements until 19 weeks with both of my pregnancies so I can’t help you there!

Chris – Is Beryl back again!

Kate – Sorry to hear about your dog. Take care darl.

Ryn – Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better. Fingers crossed for you that the m/s goes away fully soon.

Binda – You have been very busy by the sounds of things.

Anna – Can’t wait to see your belly pic!

Us - Well I have ordered a new carseat for Grace and a new nappy bag so I can fit gear in for 2 kids. All I have to do now is get a second chest of drawers for bubs clothes, wash them, put them in it and borrow the bassinette from my friend and we are ready to go. I have had my mum out since yesterday...she went home this arvo and I am feeling a little better about things. Certainly was nice to have the company and she had a lovely time with Grace while I caught up on some jobs that were troubling me.

Here is a photo of my little girl

And her Van Grace artwork

And my belly pic

Night all....way past my bedtime.
