Xmas and Stuff

Posted by White-Lily , 03 January 2013 - - - - - - · 305 views

Wow, its been a while!

Christmas was good but exhausting! It always starts early for us with birthdays and other non Christmas events and then it just keeps going for 2 weeks before things start to return to any kind of normal. Out of 10 days we were out late for 9 nights! DD1 just got so over tired and rude and grumpy and DD2 just became a...

Shae decided last week that she is a big girl and doesnt wear night nappies anymore!! She had 3 dry nappies in a row and then we decided rather than buy a new bag of nappies to just go without. She has done really well. She had her first accident this morning but had b...

Neve's Hips - 12w

Posted by White-Lily , 06 November 2012 - - - - - - · 375 views

DD2 got her harness on Friday  what a was to celebrate being 12 weeks!

No improvement in her left hip since the last u/s - we didnt expect any really as it had only been 3 weeks but it is still disappointing.
The first Dr who checked her said she would probably be ok left and just with follow up scans to monitor but when he checked, the head Dr said...

Im trapped in my house... I hate not having a car...

We cant walk to anything other than a service station where everything is overpriced
The bus only comes 3 times a day into our estate - twice really early in the morning and then once again in the late arvo. We will never be ready to go anywhere that early in the morning and the arvo time is useless be...

The birth of bub #2

Posted by White-Lily , 23 August 2012 - - - - - - · 640 views

Well nothing happened overnight and I made it to my booked induction much to my disappointment but it went really well.
I hardly slept the night before and broke down in tears numerous times that night and the next morning. My emotions were all over the place. We went out to Nandos for spicy chicken for dinner and to do one last thing as a family of thre...

Gah...

Posted by White-Lily , 09 August 2012 - - - - - - · 278 views

Induction tomorrow... unless things happen/start overnight... which they probably wont...  

I don't want this but I really feel like I have no choice.
I could quite happily continue on with the pregnancy for another few weeks if they would let me but its not safe to keep bub inside anymore.

Got heaps of questions to ask before they break my waters...
