Hi everyone, just a quick one as I am so tired. Had Hannah in the hospital last night as she was vomiting a lot and could not keep anything down  sad.gif They think it was some kind of virus but not gastro as she had no temp or diarrhea.

Hope everyone is doing well.

How is she doing now Bec? That must of been scary for you. Poor wee thing. Keep the fluids up to her. Hope your night goes ok tonight.

Amanda - I remember going to the casino years ago, lost all track of time and before we knew it was like 4am. Casinos are set up like that on purpose with no clocks or windows. Sounds like you enjoyed your adult time.

Bella is prancing around in my clothes & high heels like shes a model....LMAO!!!! Kids are so funny.
Home and Away time in a minnie.... quiet time awaits me.....yay.

Quick post from me
Have organised all my baby stuff asI have had a couple.of labour scares. And think that if I am organised then bub will stay put until the 5th however if I am not organised he might come early. Since becoming more organised I haven't had any kind of regular contractions so must be working laughing2.gif

Nat We now are employing a builders advocate now.

Bec Hope your little princess is feeling better.

Amanda I live on the coast and have been to the casino a few times.for dinner. Very yummy.

Hope the rest are well

Hi everyone...

Bec - I hope Hannah is on the mend. It is scary when you have to take your littlies to hospital isnt it. Did you hear anymore about the job? Thinking of you all. xo

Mands - ohhh it must be exciting though, knowing bub will be here soon. How many weeks are you? I hope you get your house woes sorted out soon. It really is uneeded stress. Try to find some time to relax.

Nat - your soap sounds divine. Have you done any 'savoury' kinds of soaps. Sandalwood or amber? How are things down below? Was Paul's time at home good? original.gif

Mel - how is the exam prep going?

Amanda - sounds like a lovely weekend away. Once Aidan is a little older I hope Dan and I can start to do stuff like that also. Good luck with your business. I see you launched it.

Aussie Bonbons is up and running on FB and we have our first order already. Haha, it is nice to finally be making something for someone other than family. You can find us on FB and it would be great if you 'liked' us.

Gotta go, another 5am start calls me.

Amanda- your weekend sounds great. I  haven't been to the casino in years, well except for walking through the ones in Las Vegas. Last time I went I was with some friends from Hong Kong and their eyes would just light up when we went there and they were sooo into it. I think the stereotype about HK people and gambling is probably true.

Mands- your house is looking really nice. Bub should come on the 3rd  I think since that is an awesome day.  tongue.gif

Sharna- congrats on the order. I don't know how you find the time.

Bec- I hope Hannah is better.

Nat- tell me you don't watch Home and Away.  tongue.gif

It rained this morning which is great because we haven't had a drop of rain in over 2 months. Daycare day today but I have a million things to do as usual.

Ros I am guessing that is your birthday.  DHs bestfriends' son is on the 1st so he wants that, My aunt is the 29th of April so she is going for that.  The house does look great and that is what I am focusing on.

Sharna I liked a page and will do a shout out through my cards page at some stage.  I am 35 weeks now.

Nat That new soap sounds sensational.

AFM I was up for 3 hours last night with prelabour.  Nothing definite but just enough to keep me from sleeping.  Exhausted today.  I hope I don't do this for another 4 weeks.

4 weeks today and I will be holding my little man.  C/S booked the 5th of May.

Hannah is ok, got the runs pretty bad now :-( Ethan has vomited twice today, he is up with my mum.

mands- 5th is my dads birthday and 5/5/11 is pretty cool looking date!

Sorry no more time as got dinner to organise.

Hi all.

Sorry been not coming in much as Hannah is still sick, we went back to the hospital last night as she was vomiting heaps and still terrible diarrhea. She was positive for Norovirus. They kept her there for a few hours and gave her small amounts of electrolyte by mouth and watched her and she was ok holding it down, we got home after midnight so she is still asleep now.  I have never had to wash so many sheets, mattress protectors, towels and clothes!  She vomited in her bed last night so I got Dave to hold her while I stripped the bed and then we got her changed and we gave her a sip of water and she sat with Dave on the couch and then I heard Dave say "Bec, quick" so I ran to them and Hannah had vomited all over Dave, he was covered in it.  I could not help laughing, and then she kept vomiting until there was nothing in her tummy.  Poor little chicken.

Ethan is still up in Noosa with my parents as I would rather him stay healthy.  I had a few small vomits yesterday but I feel ok now.

Not much else to report from here as I have not done anything!

Hope everyone is well and have a good weekend.

Bec How miserable for you all.  At least Ethan is away, so he wont get sick and you can focus on Hannah and resting

Bec - poor Hannah and mummy and daddy. I hope you all get some rest today. I have had noro and it was terrible but it only lasted 48 hrs or so.

Mands - how goes the prelabour? Are you resting?

Nat - is your recovery almost complete? Are you feeling good? Any new soap?

Mel - How is Mr T? Is your cat ok?

Hi to everyone else.

AFM - Went out last night for Kristi's 30th birthday. She hired a stretch hummer (FAB!) and we went into town for dinner. The theme was a 1930's gangster one so we all got dressed up. The pics are on FB. We got one of the girls from the daycare to babysit for us so when we got home I relieved her and Dan went and partied on with the others some. There are alot of sore heads today. I am just rather tired. Not much planned this weekend.

What a fabulous night Sharna. Handy with the DC carer.
Recovery is going well, thankyou. I hopefully get a clearance next Wed. Everything feels really good and healed in there. LOL. Soaps? Yep. i made a eucalyptus & peppermint soap, chopped it up and embedded it into a lemon soap. Its really quiet nice. I've got nearly 3kgs of the stuff so thank goodness its nice! Will start building up a good stash & do some markets soon. Really looking forward to it. Would still love for you to come visit too Sharna. Perhaps after Easter some time??

My sister is coming up from Syd for the easter break. I can't wait. I'm picking her up from the airport Wed whilst I'm in Brissy. Might even visit Lush beforehand...hehehehe... like I need soap.... now thats a true addict.

Hows uni Mel?

Sitting on the couch bossing Will so the lounge is FINALLY getting cleaned by a child. ILs are having the boys for a week, however I have to go and get them and it is about 4 and a half hour drive each way. I will stay the night.

Prelabour seems to have settled.mostly but had hour or so of contractions yesterday and having mild one now.

DH is going first class to Bangkok tonight to do a check flight home tomorrow. We are.going out for a nice dinner on Thursday night.

Mands - enjoy the week without the boys. Where are your IL's?

Sharna - your night out sounds like it was so much fun, so jealous!  

Mel - how is your cat, Charlie??? How is uni? You done your exams?

Nat - sorry forgot to reply about the soap ages ago! If you could send me some for my dad to try that would be awesome.

Ros - I am so bummed the BB you were selling was not a different colour! I love them but I have the same one already.

Sorry to anyone I missed.

Hannah is doing a lot better but we are not sending her to daycare today, my mum is coming down early so I can go to work. Ethan is still going to go to daycare.

Bec- I accidentally bought that BB in the rush alongside a blue tie dye one in the last pre order. Anyay I hate my new one. It feels like the design has been changed slightly and they are even harder than before to stuff. The snaps seem to sort of catch on the material now too.

Sharna- the party sounds fun.

Mands- that's the way.  original.gif  4 is definitely old enough to clean up their own mess.
