Hi Girls

Congrats Amy - I am so useless noticing ppl's news in their sigs!! hope you have a lovely 9 months original.gif

BP - You're funny was scrolling down thinking 'Oh here's more bfp news!!!'

Jilly - You are welcome to have my mobile too (think you have it?!)

Troops -  wub.gif

Bubsies - Gorgeous belly!

Molondy - Hope Dh had a good 40th

News from us - I had Jasmine home with hand foot and mouth on Wed, she couldn't go to creche for a week plus she had croup so DH and I battled work between us and caring for the girls Anyway Thurs was my wedding anniversary, my parents wedding anniversary and nieces bday so I took gem over to my parents quickly to say hello and DH stayed home with Jas. Got home around 9.30pm, Gem completely fine.
I woke up at 6am as I was going to go to work early and I heard this wierd noise - this seal noise every few seconds, and I thought it was Jas making some silly noises as she does. Next I hear this thud against Gemma's door and Gem crying, wheezing and asking me between wheezes for a puff (ventolin)  I threw her into our ensuite and turned on the shower whilst DH was waking up and then put her on the bed where she continued to struggle for air so we called an ambulance. The longest 12 mins of our lives, I think her being frightened also increased the problem and Jas had no redipred left so I was trying to calm her down.

Ambo's were great - took her to local hospital where she is known on a first name basis (how embarrasing!) so they treated her croup then realised she was constipated again so gave her an enema which helped and we are seeing a gastroeneterologist for it. She's also having trouble with her polyps so is seeing a ent guy for that. I am getting so tired of hearing 'gosh your kids are always sick'

Anyway enough about me - she's ok now just taking it easy

We went an saw Mao's last dancer last night for our anniversary (Gold Class!) I swear I could have watched him dance for hours!

Hope you are all having a good w/end original.gif

Hey MummaCougar - just checked my phone, thought I had it but I don't - can you PM me with it please??? Hope the girls are doing better.

Well, afm, we went and did the maternity ward/birth suite tour today, thought it would be appropriate given I am 37 weeks....

Am having small contractions - more tightenings than anything else...am off to the chiropractor tomorrow so hoping he can help move things along a bit.  

I really am so over this and poor DH and Josh are just coping me being a grumpy b**ch 24/7 because I am so uncomfortable.  I feel awful about that and keep apologising but then I turn around and yell again....

Hoping to have some news to share in the next week or so....fingers crossed.

Will bbl.

Tummy rubs and raspberries to all.

Amy - ohh how exciting...congratulations!!

Dons - bbighug.gif glad Gems is okay.  Glad you enjoyed the movie!

Jill - hope something happens for you soon and you get to meet your beautiful princess!!

I've been to Clare for my cousin's wedding.  It was a lovely weekend.

Hi all

Well I just got back from my ultrasound and just the thought of drinking any more water makes me want to vomit.

But all went well, baby measured at spot on 7 weeks, so I must have ovulated a bit earlier than I thought. So that puts my EDD at 29th June.  Bubbles heartbeat was 168 bpm. All perfect and I am feeling much more relaxed and all is so real now!!

Anyways, better get to work!!

Oh Yay Mandy that's awesome news!  Congrats on a healthy bubba

Congrats Mandy on a healthy bubba.

Just thought I would mention that I had my follow up appointment from my recent hospital visit yesterday. I need to have an MRI as some ducts are totally blocked and the dye didn't go thru during the procedure.

Hopefully all is well, just more tests  sad.gif

#16 Becca1605

Posted 10 November 2009 - 10:24 PM

Mandy - ddance.gif yay, how exciting

Terri - bugger about more tests...I hope it's all ok..

Okay off to bed for me....so hot here it's crazy, and hotter tomorrow, 39 or something!

#17 ~Simply*Blue~

Posted 11 November 2009 - 12:03 PM

Great news Mandy!

Terri I'm so sorry you have to do more tests, hopefully they will find something, and it's minor and easily fixed. There's nothing worse then them finding nothing, if there's obviously something not right.

Becca I went to my brother's wedding on the weekend also, it was gorgeous.

Not much happening here atm, everyones been a bit sick, I had Miller vomiting yesterday but seems ok now. I've lost my voice which the boys think is just fantastic  rolleyes.gif  We've just been to swimming for the 2 older boys and they are going so well, especially Caden, he'll be swimming on his own in no time.

heya girls

Terri- geesus.. I hope everything is ok sweetie.. thinking of you!

Mandy- Awesome!!! have you done one of those chinese chart things that tells you boy/girl....bit of fun lol. I haven't had my ultrasound yet.

Us- Shane flew out yesterday for a week. Poor bugger is doing night shift.. flew up there at 320pm.. got to his room at 4pm and needed to be on the bus to go to site at 530pm to start at 6pm.. so he didn't even get to have any sleep. =/  We skyped this morning.. before he went to sleep... poor thing sent me a msg at 10am saying he was still awake...and was having ahard time trying to fall asleep coz the room was to light =/ Hopefully he is going to be ok for tonight's shift.

Going to see my ob in a few hours.... this pregnancy still hasn't sunken in... so I am hoping seeing the little bubble/squishy.. will make things more real! lol.

We got a call yesterday saying that prestart is on the 3rd of december YAY!! and we have until the 13th of Jan to get finance.... Crossing fingers we can get finance.. coz Shane has only been working odd weeks away here and there... SIGH!!!!

I so want out of my parents it's not funny... even when the kids are in bed..Shane and I still can't get any "us" time.. even to watch a dvd that we want to watch.... iykwim.. my parents are always there...and if it's not something my dad wants to watch.. he chucks a tanty like a child. So Shane and i are getting stressed out.. because we can't even have a few hours to ourselves... with out my parents being in the same room.  And even when we go to bed.. Amaya is there.. so we can only whisper.. can't watch a dvd in there.. coz she will wake up. We are going to clean up one of the spare rooms...and put her in there.. so we have some "us" time before this bubba comes.

I just wish I could blink and do the jeanie thing.. and our house would be built LOL...

Yvette iam sure you know exactly what I mean.

Anyways.. kids are bugging me for lunch.. better run

Gina, wowee, what a great bump! I remember your belly with ds and it was similar. Im jealous of how thin you still are!

Jilly not long now, Sorry I havent pm'ed you my number I'll do it now. Is your bag packed??? You must be so excited

, how exciting! Were you straining to look and pick up any clues on the sex? I jokingly asked the u.s tech at my dating scan and she said it looked like a girl and 9 months later Gemma arrived! Will you find out?

Dons, I read your diary the other day and Im so sorry to hear that Gem has been unwell.

Terri, how are you feeling? Let me know if I can help in anyway. I will try and catch you on f.b tonight.

Bec, how are your boys going? How was the wedding any pic's?

You too Becca, any pics?

Kathreen, you must of had some alone time  Tounge1.gif  wub.gif wink.gif  Lol, Im just teasin', I can imagine how hard it is esp because Shane works away so often. Good luck getting finance. Will you go with the same lender as your 1st house?

Im doing ok. Im working two days a week now and spending the other 3 days as a under paid and under appreciated house cleaner, taxi and chef  rolleyes.gif  

Im looking forward to Christmas. This is the first Christmas in years that Im not pregnant or b.feeding. I'll finally be able to wear a nice dress and get sloshed! Ahh the joys of the festive season  biggrin.gif
