    Hi all!

    Waiting....how are you feeling today? i hope you're managing to get through each day this week while you're in so much pain! i'm sorry, i truly have no answers to your questions or any idea about your condition but I got plenty for you!! Hope you're ok!

    Liv.....sorry to hear you've hit another hurdle. I hope that you get another beautiful natural bfp or hope the ivf road doesn't take too long for you! and it's definetely not selfish wanting another bub! gosh no! if anything, you're thinking about cooper first anyway wanting to give him a sibling! he'll love it!

    Shy.....wow go samuel!! . Hope you find a good portacot. the ones i looked at or have seen they all seem to have a hard-ish mattress but i did layby the one that LM bought (and then returned it cos i seriously dont need it) but i think it was pretty good anyway!

    kiwi....how's sams walking going? I'm not much into controlled crying but we seem to have got his feed times and sleep times now sorted thanks to routine in save our sleep book. he's not totally on par with it all for day sleeps but at least it's all a good base and we're sticking to the feed times so now i know waht we can do when! i think his lack of day sleeps is due to us not wrapping his arms anymore but he's getting better with it....we've been doing it since friday now.

    Winzy......i'm not sure what i can recommend on the travelling with a baby thing! we haven't done long trips with C yet. I do know that every baby is different and my friend had a baby with terrible reflux and he cried alot and it was so sad to see and she felt she could hardly take him out for the first 4 months and the car didn't help. not saying you will have a baby with reflux but all i'm saying is that maybe confirm all your travel plans once you see how bub tolerates the car and etc. C loves the car so we have no issues there and we always try to travel in between feeds too - so feed him directly before going out.

    LM......wow so max was a wee one too?! i'm not overly worried cos i know he's getting enough to satisfy him, he just needs that little more i think! . If only he was a guts like his mother! . Hope you will be ok when Brett goes back to work!

    All going much better here with routine. I'm so happy to know feed times and approx sleep times and am loving the 7pm bedtime rather than 9pm! i dont know what to do with myself in the evenings! we sometimes do the dreamfeed and soemtimes dont - it's a bit tiring to stay up for it especially when he wakes again during the night anyway even after the dreamfeed. the 2 times we haven't done the draemfeed he's only woken the once so i dont think the dreamfeed changes anything just yet. but i'm happy!
    I may be going back to work earlier which i am and am not happy about. i love my job and my boss and my colleagues so that makes it easier and sometimes i'm pulling my hair out at home! but.....here i was thinking i had still 2 months at home! anyway, possibly meeting with my boss next week to discuss an earlier return date - only cos the chick who was acting in my role scored another role within our dept as an office manager as my friend who was the office manager scored another role. so would pretty much leave my job empty which can't happen so i said i would be happy to negotiate to come back earlier.
    Also, CAN NOT believe those who work hard and strive to get good decent high paying jobs get slogged more for childcare! today i found out that centrelink will pay $8 per day only for our childcare (based on our combined income) and then i also get the 50% rebate anyway....but still......why do those of us who strive to have decent jobs and a career get slogged more than those who dont put alot of effort into working (not saying that everyone who works part time doens't put in the effort btw.....i'm just referring to those 'lazy' ones who dont even try). what's the point in working hard and getting places?!

    Shy: portacot well we splashed out and got the baby bjorn it is very comfy with no bars underneath and supereasy to set up and down and light as - only catch is is pretty expensive. 
    Lady: wow going back early hey? I have no idea when I'll be going back yet. Will u be going back full or part time? 
    Afm: well at 12 today I was linking arms with 15 women over 65 - 70 and making whirlpools at aqua it was a crack up! Taking on ikea tomorrow I might just go backwards... I wonder if they actually have a button for the lift to allow you to  get upstairs? Just try n stop me ikea nazis!!!
    Now some more questions for those who have been there done that - I'm having a pedi on Friday are you allowed to have painted toenails in labour if I have to have an emergency Caesar? Also what r ur thoughts on prebirth waxing? I have never shaved down there and don't fancy the idea of prickly regrowth... Hrmmm getting so excited abbot meeting bubby now

    Winzy......I got a lovely full XXX (sorry for TMI) wax a few days before i was being induced. I liked to be nice and clean and crisp! . My toe nails were also painted from a wedding i was in on 10.10.10. Oh, and I think also had my hair colored beforehand as well.....actually no i think my hair was done on 9.10.10 so i wasn't grey for the wedding. So, yeah, i just left the paint on the toe nails til they eventually grew out (only a few weeks ago the last of it went). (btw, for date comparison, i was in hosp from 14 Nov, C born 16th and i was out on the 20th). It's funny cos one of the middies made a comment about me 'being waxed and toe nails painted' for labor! . But, yeah, absolutely no worry with the c/s either. if you go for emergency c/s they're not exactly going to make you take the time to get the toenail paint off! . Have fun at ikea! Well done on the portacot too!

    Wow Lisa talk about put on a show for the middies Geez they would have have been scared at what they might find down there with me, I wasnt quite prepared when I went in to labour - did a hasty shave while still at home in between contractions - Winzy I DONT recommend doing that - its hard enough not being able to see your hoohar while trying to shave let alone doing it in between contractions and trying to breathe and stay calm, there was arms and legs going everywhere!!! (sorry that probably was TMI and I sincerely apologise to anyone who is a visual thinker like me.... ) I recommend go the waxing road!!!

    LM - Nawww the twinnies are so cute (well the 5mins I saw of them today anyway haha!) and Max has grown so much!! Will have to organise to get the swing to you, geez with all the baby stuff Ive got borrowed out to everyone in here I could start my own baby-hire business!! No having babies for me anytime soon, Ive got no stuff

    Well Im feeling better today (phew!) felt pretty awful this morning but I can move ok this afternoon yay!!!

    Hi all,

    Waiting - Hope your feeling even better today. I used to have what I called IBS (don't know if it was). It was always bad around AF, I would get terrible bowel spasms and pretty much live on the toilet for several hours. Not fun! It would go on for several days, every month at AF time. Then it would go away for months and months at a time so I never saw a Dr. Late teens, early 20's was the worst. I've only had several bouts in the last 4 years and if I think about it none since my ITP diagnosis. Maybe the pred helped????? Hope you can get some help advice off the Dr's soon.

    Lisa - Wow, you must have mixed emotions about going back to work sooner than expected. I don't work because I can't afford (well I could, but I'd be getting peanuts on payday) the childcare for the 3 kids, don't even get me started on the cost of vacation care. I would love to return to study, so I can finally have a career, but that wont happen for a few years as I can't afford the childcare costs. C looks very healthy to me and I bet a growth spurt is just around the corner. Just remember if you were BF you would have no idea how much he was drinking.
    I don't like CC either, but I'm lucky and he usually settles after the 1st 5mins of crying. It's not like he's screaming all night. All his waking was affecting P & J and they have been very tired at school, so I decided drastic measures were needed. We haven't given him a bottle at night for 4 nights now, he quite often wakes at 11pm, quick cuddle, no crying and he's back asleep for the rest of the night, so HUGE improvement.

    Winzy - I avoided waxing, with my low platelet count (bruising), but.................. I got DH to trim down there as I couldn't reach, and he was a bit worried I was going to cut myself...Sorry for the TMI.

    LM- Don't know how I missed your message.

    Shy - Sounds like S is doing great. Sam was on the bigger side early on, now he's fairly average and has really slowed in the weight gain area.

    Digby - You're very quiet??????????????

    Sam is teething and has a slight cold, so very clingy. Thankfully he's sleeping really well. He had his echo on Monday. His heart murmur is an innocent one. His mumur is musical, mine clicks (bad noise), and he doesn't have a bicuspid aortic valve ( heart defect). yippee got to go................

    Kiwi.....awesome news about sam!! . If you want to work even part time then you may as well! those who work less get more govt help! (irritates me a bit because it teaches people to be lazy cos they get welfare! who wants to work when you can just get the welfare anyway!. and i'm only referring to those who are genuinely lazy and can't be bothered wanting to or trying to get a job). Your childcare benefit is based on the family income so if you only wanted to work just a few hours a week then obviously the peanuts you would earn would be worth it because the less you earn the more CCB you get! also, everyone is entitled to the 50% childcare rebate as well - as long as both parents at least work 1 hour each a week! 1 hour!! that's all it takes! insane! Oh, i think it's also the same if you're studying! if studying or working something you want to do now then it's worth enquiring to centrelink about to see what your entitelments would be.

    Thanks Lisa. I'm not ready to go back to work, not qualified for anything exciting. I will have to check things out with centrelink in regards to studying, as being a Kiwi I'm not entitled to everything you guys are.

    My poor little man is asleep on the floor in front of the tv, cuddling a drum. Refused to have a nap, he's miserable today. Now I don't know whether to move him, he's never done this before.

    Hi guys, just wanted to let you know I haven't disappeared completely!
    I left BH for a while as I think I was obsessed and then felt a bit overwhelmed trying to keep up, added with MIL visit then issues with adsl on and off at home (mostly off - long story) then finding it a PITA on my phone, etc etc
    So enough excuses! All well here. Trying to keep H entertained is my big battle but that is going well! C going well - nights especially so I can't complain!
    I haven't read all so god knows what I have missed so sorry but:

    Lisa - so sorry to hear about MIL - didn't catch up on what happened but such sad times for you and family. You always spoke so kindly of her so I am sure it would be difficult for you

    Waiting - sorry to hear of your health issues. Sounds terrible! Reminds me of a virus I had when UTD with Charlie and in car heading home wasn't sure if I would make it - and sort of didn't (oh - did I say that - ahhh). Hope you feel better

    Shy - S sounds like he's going really well

    Liv - wishing you a quick number 2 - ok that sounds dumb but YKWIM - ha!

    Kiwi - I think we are now FB friends?????? Thanks Shy!!

    Rachel - Hope preg going well

    Digby and Winzy - can't believe how close you both are!! Digby, what happened with placenta previa??

    I know I've forgotten someone but so hard with phone and my brain, or lack of!!
