"Happy Birthday Nat" for the other day, sorry I forgot too, I haven't checked the list for ages.
I have been good, apart from this pins and needles in my hands. Its driving me crazy. Worst when I wake up in the morning. Midwife said its normal with pregnancy with fluid build-up but I never had this when pg with the girls. I had swollen ankles but this time around the fluid is building around my wrists. So I haven't been much on here as I am sure typing makes it worst. I haven't even picked up my longstitch as my hands just go numb. Anyway shouldn't complain, midwife said it will go away once this bub is born.
Off to the baby Big W sale tomorrow, will be putting some baby stuff on lay-by. I am also going to get a bassinette mattress cut at Clarks Rubber tomorrow too. They have special breathable mattress there that they just cut to size. My mum is going to cover it for me. She is on a weeks holiday next week.
Sorry no personals today, I have to go and clean out our fish and birds while Chris has taken the girls to the park to ride there bikes.
Glad the Victorian Fires has ease. I hope that guy gets every-thing he deserve that started a few of them.

Awesome photos Ange, thanks for sharing. Georgia is such a sweetie and your bump is just gorgeous . I love the shot of you holding the umbrella and G snuggling into your bump. I was showing my maternity photos to friends last night and it brought a tear to my eye. So hard to believe they were only taken 3 weeks ago.
Here's my little rockstar at 2.5 weeks

Awwww thanks for the 'happy birthdays' girls, hehe
Had a lovely belated celebration with my twin brother yesterday. Was a late night though so the kids have been grumpy this morning (dragged them up for church and then a McDonalds party). Toby is on his 2nd sleep for the day - and he NEVER has two sleeps! I had a tiny nap while he was drifting off to sleep too
Ange Wow those photos look awesome! Georgia looks sooo grown up and gorgeous You look great too with that beautiful pregnant belly
Tracy The joys of pregnancy, hey? Last ten weeks is probably when all these annoying things start to happen. Have fun at the sales. Oooh I got some BigW vouchers for my birthday - might have to check them out as well
Sue Ohh your poor Dad Recovery can be so hard, and probably a lot harder when you are older I hope with each day he gets a little bit better and that soon he can see the light at the end of the tunnel
Sharyn What a w/e you've had Hannah did the same as Tom just before Christmas. We were in Target and she wanted some Dora jewellery...anyway after we were out, she says "Look what I've got" and pulled it out from under the pram We did the same thing and took her over to the front desk. I think it's a good lesson for them and she knows that that was stealing etc etc. Had to laugh at your DH still eating the slice - sounds like my DH lol.
Deb Yay Coen!! There will be no stopping him now! Toby does the same walk with his arms in the air - so cute.
Tina Yep I totally forgot valentines day too Nice to see your DH didn't though, hehe. Enjoy the next week and a half with DH home. I'm sure the transition into looking after the three boys will go smoothly
Karen Ohhh now I feel bad about making you feel guilty I know it's been a massive week for you all. Sending you all ((BIG hugs))
Tina Awww how adorable is Jarvis? Hannah thinks he cute too.

Great pics Ange!
Nat - Hehe - poor Rose is very under represented atm. After these pics arrive it's all going to change I must be a bit slow but I don't think I knew you were a twin, lol. Happy birthday for the other day
Tina - Doesn't he look like your other two boys!
Suz - Your poor Dad. I hope it's not as bad as it could be.
Me - I'm feeling pretty blurgh. I ate too much in attempt to combat nausea and now I just feel FULL.

OMG my belly has popped today, I feel so big. Even bending over today is a choir. I can just feel that this bub is going to be big like his/her big sisters.
Off to Big W baby sale tomorrow. Going to put a few things on layby for bub. We haven't even got another car-seat yet for bub as we are so waiting for it as its on reincheck. Well my mum has it on reincheck. If its not coming in the next few weeks my mum is going to get one in BiG W tomorrow.
Ok gotta go OOO Emergency is on tv.
Will be back next week to do personals. Weekends are just so hectic but I find it nice in the week Skye goes to school. I actually have some ME time now.
Hope everyone is doing good.
Tina:- Cute Pics of Jarvis.

Nat, so glad you had a lovely day with your twin brother for your birthday. I couldn't help feel guilty about missing your birthday, you're so good at remembering others. We all love ya though!
Ange, those photos made me melt, they are ADORABLE!! Oh, how Georgia's hair has grown!!! And you look beautiful.
Tina, hard to believe your little boy is 2.5 weeks already! He's a beautiful boy! Thanks for sharing photos, I just want to pick him up and give him a cuddle.
A big huge wave to everyone else!
We have a local CFA community meeting here in Seville tomorrow night, so we will hopefully know a little more about these fires. It's so windy here tonight, so it's a worry! They've been doing heaps of back burning though, which is great. I can't wait until these fires are out, so sick of spending most of the day/night looking at the CFA site checking for updates.

Wish me luck getting this post completed before Isla cracks it again She is a little hard to settle to sleep these days with her teething
Karen - I hope the fires are out soon too. It will be a weight off everybody's minds.
Tracy - must be about time for another belly shot then I got the pins & needles in my arms/hands too near the end, mostly when I woke up in the mornings though. Ahh, the joys! Not too long before it will all be a distant memory
Freyja - oh, you poor thing sufferng with nausea! Have you tried the seabands (I think that's what they were called?) They helped with my MS, didn;t make it go away but definately eased the symptoms.
Nat - Happy "Belated" Birthday for the other day, I'm so sorry I missed it Good to hear you had a nice day though I am tres jealous of you sneaking in a nap whilst Toby did, don;t get to do that very often in this house
Tina - how gorgeous is he I just want to come over and give him cuddles
Ange - oh, they are such lovely photos - definately ones to treasure! Georgia is so beautiful, and you look gorgeous too!
Sue - your poor dad, I hope things improve for him this week, must be hard for him to feel positive when things keep going wrong
Okay, going to have to cut it short, Isla is not a happy little girl and in need of some cuddles! Wonder what time she will fall asleep tonight?

So angry atm. DH is on holidays for another 1.5 weeks but may need to work 3 days this week . His trainee was doing an exam today and failed. They had relied on him passing and rostered him on at DH's shop. So now DH is trying to work out the roster and see if anyone else can cover him. Plus to make things worse the ILs are in Melbourne so they can't even help out. I would prefer not to drive this week if I didn't need to but with all the kids stuff it looks as I'll have to .
Posted 16 February 2009 - 06:16 PM
Oh no Tina. Hope your Dh can work out something. Especially having to drive after a c-section with a newborn bub in tow.
Finished dinner and baths which is great. I went out with my mum today at the shops. Layby'd some baby stuff, boys jumpsuit (jic a boy), face-washes, liners, wraps. I wash shocked when the lady said that they were due out after bub is due. LOL.
Well just popped in to say hi, I am feeling really tired. Time to put my feet up. Starting to really feel my energy level go down so fast at night now.
Will be back tomorrow
Posted 16 February 2009 - 09:14 PM
Here are some holiday snaps
Tina Oh that sucks Hopefully he can find someone else to cover the shifts.
Linda Hehe it wasn't really a nap - Toby goes to sleep by laying across my chest while I'm laying on the bed, so as he dozed, so did I It was less than 10 mins but geez it was good. Is it Isla's teeth bothering her?? Such a pain, Toby's molar has been almost through for ages, but still nothing
Karen Hope the meeting goes well tonight and that the fire threat is gone soon.
Tracy Think we're due for another belly shot, hey?
Kristy I bet you're excited about having a baby that isn't born in April, hey? LOL Your DH wasn't born in Oct was he??
I'm watching Ladette to Lady

I got my first real smile today I was holding Jarvis and started talking to him and his face lit up in a giant smile. Everytime I said something he would grin. It just melted my heart

Well here is a 32 Week Belly Pic. What do you reckon, I have popped.
32 Week Belly Pic (sorry blurry)
Tina:- Wow a smile already. Willow smiled early, even though a lot of pple say you don't get a real smile until 6 Weeks. You will have to post a pic of him smiling.
Nat:- OMG isn't your kids growing up so fast. Looks like they had great fun at the beach.
LittleAnnie:- How is Isla today???? Hope those teeth aren't causing her to much pain.
Karen:- How is it down there. We haven't heard much on the news the past few nights so I presume the danger is easing off thank goodness.
Well sorry to pop in, I need to go to the video shop before I pick up Skye. Last time taking Skye after school to the video shop was a disaster. At least Willow just picks up a hi-5 dvd and she is happy and ready to go. LOL.

Hi girls! Quick post while i'm cooking dinner.
Update on the fire situation here....I went to a local community meeting last night and the general gist of it is....Seville is not under threat atm. But, it's all depending on the winds etc, fires are unpredicable. There are still 6 major fires burning around Vic and 1 of them is just north of us, around 10-15kms away. There is one particular one they are most worried about that if winds pick up, it 'could' blow burning embers across this way. One of the fires is also very near our major Melbourne water supply, Upper Yarra Reservoir, so they are quite worried about our water becoming contaminated by ash. There is also another fire south of us, and they were a little worried last week about these 2 fires meeting up and becoming one big monster fire. Well, the question was asked last night at the meeting of the possibility of this happening and they said it is unlikely, but they are doing all they can to stop this from occurring by using weather conditions to back burn etc.
To give you some idea of the situation, here is a map. http://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/incidents/images..._0430_21877.pdf If you zoom in and look at the bigger fire of the two, just below that is Lilydale. The road coming out to the right is Warburton Hwy (the one we live on) We have fires both sides of us. I just want them out once and for all, so I can get a decent night's rest!! And what was scary to hear last night was that on Black Saturday, there was a fire just north of here in Seville, the wind changed just at the right time and blew it towards Healesville! If the wind hadn't have changed, it would have been here that was on fire.
Nat, love the photos, looks like you all had a ball!
Tracy, gorgeous baby bump.
Tina, awww first smile, how precious.
Mel (Taya), thanks for the phone call hun. They have had some spot fires happening today in Healesville, that's probably what it was.
Hi everyone else!

Just a quick post whilst waiting for Isla to go to sleep. Have been very sick last night & today - have got mastitis Am feeling a little better atm but that may be due to the panadol I just took!
Tina - ahh, your first smile Isla started at 3 weeks smiling too. Enjoy!
Tracy - you have popped! Love the belly shot.
Nat - great pics, the kids look like they enjoyed themselves!
Okay, all's quite so am heading to bed to rest.

Good evening all,
Well thank goodness the week is almost over. My part time came through so I am now only working three days a week. But I did get a call yesterday saying that apparently the other girl who is on PT and I have to discuss our days as we have to work out so that one of us is always there. Which is real dumb as we are not job sharing and management approved our PT knowing full well that we wanted the same days off. Anyways looks like the other girl can't bend at all with her days at daycare so I will be the one doing all the compromising. The other girl called me today to have a bit of a whinge (She was the one that gave me so much grief at work when Eylee was young - like the record for being away when Eylee was sick the day before I had to fly). I think that she is finally starting to realise just how hard if was for me back then and how much cr@p I put up with. Gotta love karma!
Also my boss supports me going for a ground job so I will go hell for leather tomorrow trying to find myself one. DH has been taken off all of his courses as he has put in his commission (to become an officer) which is great - his courses would have meant that between May-ish to August-ish he would have been jetsetting around Australia with little time at home. Gotta be happy with that.
So I had the kids home today - Raife was a pain and Eylee has been slowly going down hill (she is now in bed as she was just too tired). This weekend we have much of the same stuff going on - swimming lessons for the kids and getting everything ready for next week.
Loving all the photos of the kids - gee they are all growing so quickly. I will have to post some when I get a moment.
Okay must dash as I have to check on dinner (just for DH and me I have cooked the roast that has been in the frige for probably too long).
hugs to all you gals I will have to come back in when I settle into my part time routine.

lol, Nat - yes he was!!! If baby is 9 days late they may share a birthday
Posted 19 February 2009 - 09:38 PM
Just showing off my new sig .
He's not adorable tonight though. He's been awake for the last 5h, either feeding or screaming!!! I think he's sucked me dry of milk. Can someone magically make him 18mo? Newborns and teething are such hard work, I want one that has been through all that.
