    Morning all,

    Digby - I forgot to answer your question, P is feeling a bit better about flying. It turns out a friend at school had told her that 30 Qantas planes crashed last year! No wonder she was freaking out! So I've talked to her and we're busy organising things to amuse her during the flight. I've bought P & J some of those kiddie magazines and hopefully there is a good movie on. I think S will keep us on our toes but as we have to get up about 3.30am, I'm hoping he'll sleep on the second flight.

    Winzy - Massages are divine aren't they. So nice.............

    Off to school today for assembly, P is in an item. S has slept through the last 2 nights, with a bit of crying out at 11.30pm, which he self settled for. I don't mind getting up early if he sleeps through. Have a good day everyone, MIL is buying us tea, so I don't have to cook.

    Thanks Winzy, I will give them a call & find out about classes I'm guessing you don't do them until bubs arrives as they way you get to practice on the real thing I'm hoping so anyway!

    Have a lovely day & fantastic weekend girls. The weather is just gorgeous

    Augh Homework....

    Winzy, Digby - Yep Mummyagain is right, there is 1 session in the CYH new mums groups that focuses on baby massage. I considered massage course but a midwife at the hospy gave me some tips then after doing the CYH session I didnt feel it was worth me forking out the money (didnt have much money at the time!) I found I got enough info for what we needed from the CYH session but thats just me.

    MG - How r u going? Excited about your scan? Are you getting any symptoms??

    LM - Hope you and the twinnies are doing well and are able to go home soon

    Kiwi - Not long till your trip home now!! I still have Sams birthday pressie here, will organise to drop it round when you get back

    Liv, Lisa, Rach, Shy and anyone else Ive missed hope you are all doing well, better run A is outside with DH and I can hear a mega tantrum brewing...

    Hi there all!
    Thanks for the info on baby massage at cyh are they all over the place or a central location? Sounds like a goer.
    Afm: we had our labour n parenting class today interesting and it just confirmed alot of stuff and answered some questions so that was good. It was also good to see the labour room and the fancy pants labour bed and possible positions etc need to get myself a big fit ball for the first stages of labour I reckon

    Waiting & Mummyagain thanks for the tips on baby massage. DEFINATLY will be going with the cheaper option & through baby group

    Winzy.....yep there everywhere. Now things maybe heaps different now so girls correct me if I'm 12 years outdated. When I had DD I was given her "blue book" & explained by the middies before leaving hospital the numbers I needed to make appts to get E weighed etc & to join a mums group! I'm guessing you get the same info but I could be wrong??

    Gotta go E wants me to watch "wild child" with her

    Digby - Yep you're right you still receive a "Blue Book" and info in hospital, though its now more of a "Blue Folder" You also fill out a form to organise the first check up visit once you return home, the hospital should forward that to CYH and a nurse will give you a call to arrange a home visit (but I know in some cases when they are really busy the dont get back quickly so you have to follow up or go to an appointment at their office). I was lucky enough to get a home visit and receive one of the old blue books with A, it was one of the last few available. The GP and nurse who do As immunisations and check ups cheer every time they see it cos they hate the new blue book format, cracks me up every time

    Winzy - As Digby said, you get given heaps of info including babys blue book (records, immunisations etc) in hospital. That (should) include the contact details for CYH. There is a general number you ring and it will connect you to your nearest CYH, request to go on a waiting list for a new mums group, usually they dont get you started until bubs is 8 weeks and (generally but I cant say for all) they are done by birth months. Its all free of charge, the groups usually run for approx 8 weeks at the CYH office then its up to the members of the group to continue running it outside if they wish. I found my CYH mums group to be INVALUABLE during the first 10 months while we met regularly (until people went back to work), they really were my sanity!!!

    Waiting...that's a shame about the blue book, was so nice & handy. I remember the middie who gave me mine 12 years ago saying as a tip to keep it in the nappy bag, that way you'll never forget it for any appts etc. She was right, Unfortunatly by the sounds of it don't think the "blue folder" will fit so nicely in the nappy bag lol!! Ah well, times must change I guess!

    Funny momment tonight.......I'm feeling a little under the weather tonight, just the usual 3rd trimester stuff with the heartburn/nausea & aches & pains!! Anyway DH had a few beers whilst watching the goofy in the spa tonight!! All happy also as crows lost lol!! Anyway a little but tipsy deceides to inform me "how cool" it would be if we start trying for another straight after she's born...then continues to talk about having another then maybe another!! All while I'm feeling "very pregnant/hormonal etc etc lol!! Crazy man!! Hopefully he will get his wish for some more kidlets in the future BUT not really in the mood to think about all the nausea that goes with pregnancy for at least a few months after this lil one is born! Lol!!
