It's scary that they are so big already isn't it SS!
Love I may not make Sat as I am in the exam lead up and have been very slack on the study front.....we are looking for a new car (my chariot's clutch is giving out) and have a friend staying Sat night visiting from Perth..........

BUT I would really love to meet up with any Sydney gals after the exams.......I finish on 9th Nov....... Just in time for the Nov b'days (Dh on 11th, Alessia on 16th and me on 17th) Phew!

Went to a school reunion last night....it was very weird seeing all these familiar faces (it was a general reunion not a specific year) and seeing people the same age......you remember them in uniforms and I think I haven't aged UNTIL I see my peers all grown up and adult like and it's a real slap in the face! LOL

Good night though! Was a friend's B'day too so we went out for dinner afterwards! Nice night!

Good luck for a labour-filled weekend to avoid any induction next week!

Malli news???

How are you feeling about the impending birth, Malli? Excited? Daunted? Do you enjoy your births or no? Do you think this will be it for you guys, or is that still open? I'd love to hear what's going through your head ATM. original.gif

Love to everyone else and BBL. xx

hello!  still alive just BUSY!  thanks for messages on FB, which have shamed into a brief posting!  i haven't even been reading, but if it makes a difference, i do feel bad about not posting?! tongue.gif

bali was awesome (mostly) aside from the flight to denpasar.  cleo vomited in the check-in line (a big one, requiring a change of clothes) and that set the scene for the flight... ugh.  she vomited so many times, i lost count... poor little girl!  we arrived at denpasar with cleo in a nappy only (her clothes had to be thrown out!), aaron and i stinking (no changes of clothes for us...) and max gagging every time he smelt vomit rolleyes.gif the vomit bug moved onto max for the next 24 hours, then me for the following 24 hours... and then, we were all healthy for the rest of the trip! phew!  explored some new areas on the island, swam daily, massages nightly, ate gorgeous food, shopped til i very nearly dropped... bought some really lovely items from boutiques in seminyak, for myself and cleo.  max and aaron had to make do with billabong tees and shorts, lol.  will write more about bali on my blog, when i get around to uploading photos... just wanted to give a bit of a newsy post, and get back in the loop!

love to you all, and will of course read back on missed threads when i have some free time... ha ha ha, what's free time?!!  aaron was off work for a month (week before bali, 2 weeks in bali, week after bali) so we've been VERY busy with holiday planning, holidaying, and catching up post-holiday!  max has started teeball (won player of the week this week, obviously encouragement based!), we've nearly finalised the purchase of an investment property, i've caught up on paperwork at home, and even spotted the bottom of the laundry basket this weekend ohmy.gif i took the kids to the beach yesterday morning; spied a fat seal very close to shore!  cleo is now mostly sleeping through, but has taken to waking at 430am for feed (yes, 'still' breast feeding biggrin.gif ) which is of course exhausting.  she usually nods back off, but i don't manage it... and then max is awake by 530am at the latest rolleyes.gif max now receives a lot more 'home' work, so that's a struggle to fit into the day... we are yet to find out groove with that!  

phew this post is all over the place, but at least i've posted, right?!

Good to hear your news, Tanya original.gif . 'See' you soon, when things have settled original.gif .

Looking forward to all the wedding, family news (Caro and Pix) and about Malli's impending (or maybe even completed by now) birth original.gif .

oh!  and in big news: i am on day five of 'no more brownes iced coffee chill 600ml with a straw'... it has been tough!  i truly was addicted, gulp!

SS, happiest belated birthday to SGee!  Can't believe our babies are now SIX!
Crap & bugger re AF... xxx

Pix, happiest belated birthday to your newest six year old!  So pleased that the spotting didn't amount to anything serious xxx

Caro, I liked what Kylie said to you, in the previous thread, re coping w/ four.  Hang in there!

Julie, great weight loss, girl!  i am back on WW - holidays are OVER, it's time to get serious tanya!

Kylie, enjoy your time away from the kids / husband, and sauna or no sauna, enjoy the break - you deserve it!

Zoe, you'd deleted your post before i could read, but gather you've also lost loads now??!

Jodes, read on FB about your sick doggy sad.gif big loves, mwah!

Nic, hi!  thanks for asking after me in the last thread original.gif shoe shopping with four young kids - bet you raised some looks?!

Tombi, my mirena was inserted during a LAP so can't comment on pain levels there, as i was out of it!  i have expereinced a little spotting with mirena, but no pain, so that's a bonus... typically, i bled in bali, on our bloody honeymoon!  an issue for aaron, not me.. ah well, our room was not especially big so 'honeymooning' was not frequent wacko.gif there were literally five cms between our bed and max's ohmy.gif we lowered the mosquito net for a sense of privacy, lol, but as you can imagine, not very effective!  family room for us, next time! i guess we've done well to persevere with a single room until now...

malli, so excited for you!  can't wait to hear your news...due 19th, you must be so ready!!!

julia, where are your holiday photos? will need to seek out on FB?

dip, my sister mentioned that her fiance is just back from auckland, and LOVED it, so much so that they're talking about a move there!  i can't remember if auckland was somewhere you visited on your recent holiday to NZ?

kim, good luck with upcoming uni assessments!

i have missed someone, i know it, i know it... this is why personals are such a bad idea!

i'm hungry, byeeee xxx

#19 *Caro*

Posted 25 October 2010 - 02:48 PM

wow, I haven't seen a post with so many personals for yonks!! laughing2.gif

fantastic to hear all your news, tanya!  Bali sounds wonderful, although the vomiting and lack of space doesn't sound so good!  great work on giving up your iced coffee - addiction is hard to break.  A while back, I went a whole day without chocolate - man it was hard! laughing2.gif

...i have missed someone, i know it, i know it.
Helen who went holidaying and thankfully finished jury duty and Alicia who .. well, I posted on her 'wall' asking how she was last month but have not heard anything as I guess she's been super-busy with work but I am hoping she's ok and feeling good in herself original.gif . There is Nev but she only only goes to F B now original.gif .

Still here. Tired.

Was in for monitoring today. They did a S&S gosh I hate those things!!!

If Im not done by Thursday Im to go in at 7.30am!

Its the first time Ive really thought about the pain. SO am worried esp after they sent me to the birting unit to be monitored. Big mistake!!! I was in tears hearing another woman labour!!

best get some sleep  oomg.gif and think happy thoughts!

Aw Malli hhugs.gif . Can be quite a scary time for some women, me included happy.gif . Take care, yes, happy thoughts and rest original.gif .

Oh Malli that is awful hearing other women labour isn't it! When I had Bec I was in a labour ward with 7 other labouring women! Funny in retrospect! One lady was screaming the house down and the midwives were so BLUNT with her (I was soooo nervous thinking - sheesh that'll be me in a while).....then I realised she was actually a midwife from the unit and was having her first baby! I laughed then......they were telling her to suck it up and behave etc etc as she was upsetting the other women! LOL it all fell into place!

Good luck for Thursday (or before if Jnr decides to grace you with his/her presence)........

Told the girls that I would take them both to Luna Park for being such troopers while they had Chicken Pox (they were seriously amazing).........have come to work today and work is hosting a family day at Luna Park in a few weeks so SCORE......don't have to pay and they get their Luna Park fix! Cool! original.gif

Quick post: Those with 4 babies, how soon did you feel the kicks of the 4th? I swear I have been feeling them from like 10/11 weeks! Is that even possible?

Posted 26 October 2010 - 11:48 AM

I don't have 4 but biggrin.gif ... baby is about 6-10cms long so maybe something? Or it could be stretching of the uterus. Or, maybe it's what I feel most days (exactly like baby movement) even though I'm not pg smile1.gif .

Kim, cool! How fortuitous original.gif .
