SG I 2nd, 3rd and 4th the replies so far, after number 1 your body knows what to do in preparation for the new one happy.gif
By the time I was preg with #3 my body just went into preg mode from conception and started expanding huh.gif so when I was preg with Taj it was very hard to hide it at 7-8 weeks, my bil worked it out and I was even wearing a maxi dress!!!!!
Sorry lovie, just how us girlies work I guess biggrin.gif
My most alike preg were #2 & 3, carried very low and felt like sh*t, #1 I was eexcite.gif (as you are) everything was great and #4 carried high, as with #1, still felt sh*t at the beginning, though I really enjoyed it, and towards the end I could barely walk as he was my heaviest
Even the same sex preg can feel different

IAC (RD tongue.gif ) bbighug.gif I dislike sick kiddies, lots of work for the mummies

Heidles Oh please share your news (if you want!!) when you find out

ETA: Anyone know where to get good Ugg boots for a great price? My tooties are freeeeeezing!!

LOL thanks for the moral support girls original.gif  OB said the same thing on Monday when I went in... she did a scan and I saw his little face (sort of, you know how clear ultrasounds are...) oh so cute!   Reminded me a lot of E's head shape (very distinct!).  I hope they are alike.  I always thought she was an angel of a baby so I'm apprehensive about what we're in for this time!!

Cal I hope you're getting through OK... E had a temp and snotty nose for a couple of days this week and the hardest part for me was getting her to let us take her temp and getting saline up her nose without a wrestling match!!  She's a very strong willed kid, even when ill!!

Lex how ru?  Are you over that weird blogger thing? What on earth?  For a start, I wouldn't go alone to a Big4 EVER *shudder*

Argh... the poor cat needs some attention... better get my giant behind up off the couch!

Looks like we will be welcoming a pink bundle ppinkstork.gif in October biggrin.gif

It's exciting to think we will have one of each, but I am a little sad that it's not a boy  - although I am sure Jackson and the baby will be great playmates regardless. I am already dreading the teenage years!

See Shopgirl that was my reaction..
HOLY COW I am not a caravan girl! I asked Patsy if she wanted to go with me, but she said she doesn't do caravan. I was like ummm.. no me neither.

But did you see my blog post? http://porkchopsnest.blogspot.com.au/2012/...ed-by-big4.html

DID YOU SEE MY ROOM! I was like stuff socialising, I'm going to hang out at my room in front of the TV on the big bed! It was luxurious!

The other mummy bloggers.. some were odd as I think some are homeschooling etc, some I had talk to on Twitter. Anyway, as usual in a big group of mothers, chances are I am the odd one out. So I went back to my room with my chocolate and watched bad tv lying on the king sized bed.

I'm so glad that everyone is pregnant at the same time. original.gif

How are you holding up IamCal, My4SS, Shopgirl, Heidies..

Heidles ddance.gif Yay that is so exciting, congratulations!! tthumbs.gif
Perhaps you could try for a bbluestork.gif for number 3???? wwhistle.gif

Lex I am very over the long drawn out tanties (by taj laugh.gif ) when I try to dress him, change his nappies or jammy time, it is driving me wacko.gif

Anyone else doing the dressing/changing wrestle??

Posted 20 June 2012 - 01:32 PM

Heidles YAY I am thrilled for you!! You had exactly my reaction - sad it's not another one the same but excited at the same time as you get to experience both!  We should trade clothes!  Heaven knows I will be so sad to never get to use those expensive little pink outfits again cry1.gif

Lex just read your blog post... you made it sound like, not as bad as it actually may have been!! LOL... Oh and that bag is :droooooooool:

Meanwhile that damn earthquake scared me half to death last night!!  I was a complete basket case as we are now living in a double story and HAPPENED to be chilling upstairs when the whole thing happened so we were reeeeaaallllyy floaty and like "is the house falling down???".  I went to jelly... I'm putting it down to being pregnant.  Hubby went to battle stations, he was ready to evacuate, LOL. My big strong man  biggrin.gif

Now as always I'm anxious to hear from Lou cos everything happens in her neck of the woods!!

Hmmm... seems my little has no intention of sleeping this afternoon... makes me crazy.  I'm going to have a nap anyway!!

Yeah it was fine.. I didn't socialise much. I just wanted to be in my room ALONE and blissfully watching bad tv. It was lyrics and music on tele that night. LOL.. But when you publish things like that especially when you were invited on an all expenses paid sleepover you would not be negative original.gif

I'm taking turns getting sick too in this house. Fricking hate winter. It happens every winter.

Have heard from Lou she is fine. original.gif Patsy had water out of her glass she left on the kitchen counter all over the counter!
Lou was more worried about the slab of the house that they were building.

Yes the Balenciaga is a gift from my Mum. I love having a Chinese mum!!!

Thanks Lex

Yeah floods and earthquake within a few weeks sure is happening around here. It was pretty freaky but we didn't have any damage. I was worried during it that our current house would split open and then we would never sell, but nothing happened thankfully.

Also no action on selling. Quite down about it now - and seriously starting to stress.

2 sick kids atm which is always fun.

hope everyone else is doing good x

I hate this time of the year because it is totally sick kids central!
Really really hate it!

How's everyone else holding up?

My4SS, i found that cheap ugg boots are just nasty. Have to spend it unfortunately.

Ladies, please report if you are having a boy or girl.

Hello Hello!

All going well here. Baby keeps letting me know she's there with some light kicking (mostly at night). I'm now 24 weeks and I think am finally starting to show. We went to a Playschool concert yesterday, and one of the dads looked at me and offered me a seat, which I politely declined as I was up chasing after Jackson for most of the show anyway - he was trying to get on stage to get the bear (Big Ted) laughing2.gif

Jackson has decided he doesn't want to have a daytime nap most days, but I try and persevere (or at least get him to play quietly with his toys) so I can have a rest too  closedeyes.gif SOme days I have even resorted to driving to the shops or the park, with the aim to try and get him to fall asleep on the way home. I prefer the park as I don't spend money there biggrin.gif

This time next week I will be in Fiji ddance.gif I am really looking forward to it - I didn't realise how much I needed a holiday until I left the office last Thursday afternoon. And when I return, I will only have 9 weeks until I start maternity leave (or as my sister pointed out, 27 days)! Woop!

jealous Heidles I want to go to fiji nice and warm saw it on the weather this morning and laughing2.gif at Jackson

Not much going on here, Samuel is a terror!  He must have had a testosterone burst he is so rough he was picking on older kids at the park for Amelia's party :/ if they had a lolly he would go up and snatch it DH was forever stopping him! He is big so some 3 and 4 year olds are the same size as him :/

Oh and yes this year has been bad for sickness!  Amelia has been more sick this year than in all her life!

Lex Thanks for sharing the news about kckb ( ssecret.gif ) which I see has gone, my lips are sealed Tounge1.gif .  Great news anyway!

How is FG going?

Has everyone returned to Aust safely?

And Aminilla (don't think I got that right, dykwim?) anyone heard how she is doing?

Heidles Oh to be warm again without heating and layers!! Hope you thoroughly enjoy it.
Great to hear about your little girl growing nicely and giving her mummy those nice jabs when you are trying to rest wink.gif

STML Have you sold your house yet? I could actually look it up I just realised ddoh.gif though will probably forget by the time I get a chance to look!
Good quake the other week hey? sad.gif Bit of a worry when it didn't stop, glad you're all good though.

IAC Sam sounds funny.
Hope your kids are ok or at least getting better.

SG How are you growing? grin.gif

AFU been super busy, especially with school holidays.
Taj is so funny atm, he is a little parrot and will say words after hearing them once.
No matter where we are he will seek out boys and men and start 'chatting' to them, think he's had enough of girls already rolleyes.gif

Must go before I ramble too much as I have a list of things to get done.

Hi to everyone I didn't mention waves.gif

Hi all

Just dropped the house by another $10k (literally just - half an hour ago)- that takes us to $25k under what the agent recommended we list at and around $70k less then when it was valued at the start of last year. The RE market round here has died. My agents have only had offers of BELOW $100k for properties!!! Seems investors are trying to make the most of a bad situation.
What with carbon tax (don't forget we are the power station  hub, of the 4 located around here,  may close), and several big business closures, unemployment on the rise in a massive way and we are just screwed.

We are supposed to move in around 6 weeks time. Just hope we manage to get a renter instead.

Sorry for the downer post, I know that there are a lot of people with more serious problems, just feeling pretty stressed and worried about the whole thing.

M4SS - FG and KK are back in Aus and doing well.

Hope all is good with you all xx

Don't be sorry, your situation is a worry for you that's it you don't need to compare it to others, it is real for you and your family so it does matter.

I'm sorry the market it in the shi**er atm and all those other factors are affecting the sale of your house. It really must be a stressful time for you and dh.
Could you rent it out, would that be better than selling it at such a lesser price?

I hope something happens for you soon, either way, to ease your worries bbighug.gif

Posted 16 July 2012 - 01:37 PM

That's the plan, if it doesn't sell before we move we will take it off the market and rent it out. Just hope we can find a good tenant. Will look at selling once 9if) the market picks up.
Not going to bother listing it for rent yet, would rather not have prospective tenants coming through, that can wait until we are gone, and maybe, just maybe, we will get lucky and sell in the next 6 weeks!

On another note, Paige used the potty 3 times on Saturday! She hasn't used it since though lol. Can't believe our babies are all turning 2 now. Is anyone doing a party this year? No party here, but we will be making her a peppa pig cake biggrin.gif

#68 whydoibother

Posted 17 July 2012 - 10:55 AM

oh Lou renting has its advantages if the house is easy to maintain and if you can get enough stuff to claim on tax.  In the mean time you can rent it out and still have it on the market I think.

Not much happening here school holidays for another week and the kids have been sick (well Noah isn't too bad) Sam is a clingy boy atm.  Sigh.

Hope you are all well x

Lex is L's birthday on the 22nd? No, 21st?????? wacko.gif

Lou TT is the one thing I hate about kids and I'm really not looking forward to it at all.
Taj maybe in Take 5 mag in a few years as his mum refuses to tt him and he still wears nappies wwhistle.gif

Taj actually told me to 'go way' (his words) while I 'tried' to change him today oomg2.gif

Lou - what IamCal said if you have a good tenant it's put in and forget.

My4SS - it's 21st original.gif hahha thanks for remembering. I am the most useless and never remember anyone's.

The garden certainly isn't easy to maintain - we would have to include mowing I fear. Doubt many tenants would have their own rideon.
I don't think keeping it on the market will attract many people to it TBH. Not a lot of people for the higher end rental around here and they wouldn't want the inconvenience of inspections, can't say I blame them, not that there are many but they are a pain...

M4SS - Paige tells me to go away all the time...don't know where she gets it from lol

Hi ladies, i am still around, my computer has issues with EB sometimes and i get frustrated and stop checking for awhile. Things are going well here Brody and Kaylee are going well. Kaylee is still a horrible sleeper, but she's picking up more words each day atm. We just spent the last 2 weekends in Albany for my niece's 2nd birthday party last weekend and my grandfathers funeral this weekend so i got to see heaps of family for my 30th birthday yesterday. Home again now and i'm exhausted which isn't helped by being 8 weeks pregnant with number 3. Had a scan today so got to see the little blob original.gif

Hope everyone else is well
