Dropping in to say hi

Sophia and Nate are doing really well

I am relearning tandem nursing the last time I nursed two children at the same time was about 14 years ago

Bronte is slowly warming up to her new siblings but still occasionally gives them a dirty look.

my second son James moved out a few days ago and i am missing already

Anyone want to do a house swap, The weather here is really hot and I am hating it

Great to hear your little miss is doing better Pixie.

Helen how's your little one going?

Sam

Hey Sam congrats on your little ones! I haunted the twins forum to figure out how to tandem nurse my singletons.we are having cooler weather here, we actually need to wear shirt sleeves and cardigans in the evening burrr! you can come visit us and it wouldn't be that big of a journey.
I think I might be pregnant but I'm still in denial.I took two tests last night and they were both pos but the lines were far apart not like in the pictures so it must be wrong, right? I keep feeling like AF is about to show but my stomache is bloating more in a pregnant shape than a AF shape.I didn't keep up with my cycles the last two months so I don't remember exactly how late I am just that I am still in my "window".Since my last baby was such a huge surprise i've gotten in the habit of testing every month but I als didn't keep up with that since Nov.EEK! I need to go get some ginger in, I feel so sick but this could still be PMS symptoms too. EEK!

Excellent, another fifth baby!

crittersmom. I'm here if you want to vent- Samson came as a heck of a shock, too.

Sam, we're surviving. A few good days, a few bad days. He's wishing his life away- holding his head up well and making gooey noises already : Why can't they just stay babies?

I'm just catching up. We've moved which took us over a week and the phoneline/net went off 5 days before the move.

It's very, very nice to have so much space and I'm getting used to the niggles you have with any house I guess.

i think that's our case too - like, hmm, it's ok if we conceive now, so let's not worry about it but atm I'm thinking of using the mini pill for a bit. Tried it one or two cycles 9 years ago and got spotting and depression from it.lol. but might be worth another shot for the 'freedom' ??

that's awesome. my twins in SCBU would get same temp, etc when they were co bedded. So nice to read about older twins, but so, so sorry you've been through all this with Little Miss

Sam - I haven't read your births story yet.....glad they are home

Thanks for the congrats Helen and vent a way I shall...
i took a digital test and a cheapie and the digital one came up + right away and the cheapie took awhile but is very + too.My body has a nasty habit of just keeping up with cycles so my last two AF could have been extreme spotting.I am cramping worse than I did with my second and he was a post Depo baby.I still have oodles of milk though so i must not be that far along.I will have to have DH get out of work early and convince the miserly appt clerks at the Drs that I really need to get an U/S now rather than be treated as a regular new pregnancy and be seen in 3 weeks.DH will be getting out of the Navy in July and I don't think the new job will have health coverage, and we live even farther from any hospitals that have maternity care now.I guess this explains why I 've been getting rid of so many things and organizing, I seem to be best when I am pregnant.At least our truck seats 9.

Bleg. I just realized we aren't going to be able to trade in our van for something different this year because we need our tax return for back debt. Which means when the baby comes in two months, we all won't be able to fit anymore! It won't be bad when DH is at work because my oldest is now big enough to be safe in the front seat, but I can't quite figure out how we're going to travel as a family for a while!

We had this trouble when Frida was born and ended up going for a year with only a 5 seater car. A couple of times when we really all needed to go somewhere we hired a tiny car and dh drove himself and one other while I drover the others in our own car. This worked out cheaper than hiring a 6 or 7 seater for us all to go out in.

Thanks, mamas!
And I have good news.
We're home! Yesterday afternoon we went home, we decided to go home alone too (without nurses) 'coz there's really nothing they can do for us. Little miss cotton ball button is so much better, she's recovering great from the surgery, and has been sitting up in bed, talking and laughing. She's getting physiotherapy almost every day and we expect a full recovery.
We had a picnic in bed last night, we all ate fresh sushi in bed and played a board game. Everyone together enjoying each others company. It was pure idyll.

for happy times together as a family

AM, s

And happy Aussie day to my fellow Aussies!
We're celebrating with cake at least. We're still thriving at home.

That's great about Miss Cotton Ball.

Ooooooh! Some new babies coming! How exciting!

And Sam, I'll house trade you. We are on our 3rd blizzard since Christmas. Kids are out of school again. The high today will be 2F. At least it is about zero. More snow tomorrow.
post #216 of 228
crittersmom - it's different to find out you are expecting number 5! We know what we're getting into...it's not all giggles, but more like "Ookay, here we go again." There's excitement too but it's just different! Sounds like you are pregnant, my dear, whether you get an u/s or not!

AnnetteMarie, hope you are alright...you've had too many rough months lately!

AM, I hope it's just winter stuff. A couple of nice days has made the cold so much worse for me.
post #218 of 228
I think it's winter stuff coupled with the fact that I would have been due in February. Yesterday was pretty bad. Today was better. Tomorrow will be better yet. Thanks for the love, mamas.

Happy Australia Day Pixie

We celebrated by having a bbq lunch, swimming, eating ice cream cones and in the evening we went and watched fireworks at a local park.
