no ice cream this summer

finally! it's taken over a year. but today we got the skin prick testing done for sian's milk allergy.

i got a call from the day unit yesterday, tried to phone back all afternoon. finally got trhough this morning.

"can you come in for testing today?"
"sure, let me get a banana"
"ok, no rush"

so, we get there and the nurse shows sian that it doesn't hurt by doing it on me. oh boy she screamed blue murder! but we got a drop of saline, histamine and concentrated cows milk on her arm.

went off and played for 2o mins.. after a quick nursing session. gotta love the comfort factor of them!

histamine- no reactoin
saline- no reaction
milk- weird reaction, but deifntley wasn't there before we started.

*sigh* guess there's no ice cream for us this summer! ah well, we didn't get any last year either!

granny mary's jumper

mama's freind mary knitted me a jumper. it's been too big for me all this time- i'm 15mos now. actually it's still too big for me! but i asked her to share a picture of it so everyone can get an idea of how much to big it must have been when it arrived.

the pregnancy post lol

well. after 6weeks of nausea from hell i feel great today! i don't think i'll beleive that #2 is on hte way till i have an ultrasound though heh

yesterday we took sian to a playgym in the morning where she got to bounce around to her hearts content and play in the ball pond. then we went for a nice swim in the afternoon. the only draw back to the swim was that it's a good 45mins drive away. it's a great pool for shrimpy though as it's a leisure pool so she can crawl around in the shallow water. she loved the slide and was crawling up it and sliding down on her own!

oh we have boobage alert lol. well dear blog. i'll sign off again. you got two posts in one day though. please be impressed

more signs from sian

i forgot to update you on these dear blog.

sian can sign more now. and oh boy does she get her point accross! since i last posted she's added

nappy (diaper)

to her signing vocabulary.

she's taken to pulling at my top and frantically signing please when she wants to nurse. it's funny when she does it as she generally ends up smacking herself in the head!

i am so bad at updating this! it's been over a month since i told you all about my positive pregnancy test.

my first ante-natal appointment is on March 24th. and i am *telling* them that i'm having a home water birth. of course if they come up with "your too fat" like alst time i'll just get them to put it in writing and send it off to the Department of Health and AIMS ( i have a list of phrases to try and learn and remember.... placenta brain has set in early hehe.

what has happened since i last wrote?

sian and i have both had ear infectoins. that was a great birthday. stuck in the dr's surgery and feeling grotty to boot. shrimpy's cutting teeth - when isn't she? one of them should be through soon by the looks of it. i'll have to try and get a toothy picture.

we're waiting for an appointment to have shrimp tested for cows milk allergy. i've only been after this for a year! and i am missing things like ice cream lol trouble is if i have it, someone else wants it. oh and she's still nursing like a champ! i can't see her quitting anytime soon.

morning sickness sucks. and hwoever named it must have been a bloke! it's with me 24/7 . i know i can stnad to lose a few pounds but it's not nice praying to the porcelain throne all the time. and poor sian is starting to think the telly is her mama i'm sure. i'm so not the mama i was just a couple of months ago. only 30weeks to go!
