HOWDY Y'ALL...

*Clears throat* I mean.... G'DAY MATES!!!

Ok first of all...

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I am SOOOOOOOOO frikken over technical crap!!!


Ok, SO...

Just so ya's know... I am NOT Dead! I am still fluttering around (feeling sorry for myself because I have NO Internet at the moment) but I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth!!!

You see... the last time ya's heard from me, I was temporarily ill with horrid migraines and morning sickness, so I was too crook to drag my arse to Keithy!

But since then (ages ago now) the morning sickness and bad headaches had STOPPED (praise the lord) and I have finally been feeling FANTASTIC!!!

It wasn't until I received a VERY EXCITING Parcel in the mail from the beautiful Daryl (frikken yonks ago now!) when I rushed online to send her many thanks, but I had discovered that I HAD NO INTERNET!!!

So let me just say now... THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH DARYL!!! xxxxxx

She sent me 2 whole blocks of gorjus choccy and OMFG it was delish!!! The choccy looked real posh like it coulda cost an arm and a leg for!!! And I tell ya what!!! An arm and a leg would be a small price to pay for it's deliciousness!!! *GiGGLeS*

SO THANK YOU DEAR LADY!!! I OWE YA ONE!

Unfortunately, Hubby threw out the empty packets and I have forgotten what the actual names of the chocolate were. Daryl could you pretty please remind me of these names and brands so I can Google the images and do a proper review on them? *Flutters Eyelashes*... Ta. xx

Oooo so any way... when I discovered that the Internet was down I picked up the phone to abuse the slackers, only to THEN discover that even the PHONE LINE WAS DISCONNECTED!!!

Long story short... Our Internet and local calls service are with Telstra, and our Mobile and overseas calls are with Max Telecom! I'm not exactly sure what the heck is going on... but apparently these services are clashing with each other and have cut off all of our services ALL TOGETHER!!! Which is STUPID because we are paying for NOTHING!

The big problem is... that none of these dickheads know how to fix the damn problem, because they have never dealt with an issue like this before!!

And as you can imagine, I can't even CALL the bastards because our phone isn't working!!! So I can only call them when I get a chance to go to Muussy's house, and even then all they can tell me is they are still trying to 'sort the problem'! DICKHEADS!

I'm at Muussy's at the moment, which is how I have found the time to pop on and do a post. I decided it would be easy if I spent the night because I have heaps of things (including this Telstra and Max Telecom issue) to sort out via phone, so I'm going to deal with all of that tomorrow!

Plus we are going to a funeral tomorrow...

Remember the family friend who I posted about? Who was diagnosed with a kidney tumour and told that he only had 4 months to live?

Well he lost his life on Saturday, and his funeral is tomorrow, may he rest in peace. xx

I don't know if I actually will go yet... I really struggle with these sort of things! The thought of death completely freaks me out, and I feel every bit of pain and suffering around me!

It's going to be really hard to see his family in mourning, and it doesn't help that I'm already a blubbering, hormonal, pregnant mess, getting fatter by the day!!

But anyway... we shall see how it goes!!!

On a brighter note... I FOUND THE CAMERA!!!

And since I've had nothing better to do, I went mad with posing in the dunny room and taking silly shots of myself to show off my new AWESOME PINK COWGIRL HAT that my AWESOME FRIEND RHEA SENT ME!!!!

It is soooo me...


Oh and look what else I did...

THIS IS FOR YOU...

*GiGGLeS*

But you know what really sux?

I have completed 2 NEW episodes of RAT GiRL!!!

BUT I DON'T EVEN HAVE THE NET TO UPLOAD THEM!!!!! :-( BOOOOOOOO

I do hope to be back online soon.

I'm allergic to pregnancy!


Blergh... sorry I haven't been on for a while to post or read others and I probably wont be for a little longer!

I've had a horrid stomach bug for the last couple of weeks which has had me runny from both ends!!! (I know... ewwwww)!

But even though the stomach bug has seemed to have cleared up, I'm suddenly constantly fatigued and tired ALL the time! I have been sleeping for about 16 hours per day and when I'm not sleeping I'm cuddling up to my bucket in bed ffs!

I'm also very light headed and feeling faint alot and getting these awful hot flushes that makes it feel like my head is gonna pop off and shoot to the moon ffs!!! But most of all, I suffer from hideous headaches if not miagraines!! *sigh*

So please bare with me as I rest up and try to get back to my normal self!

Oh! RHEA!!! I got your hat and I LOVE IT!!! Thank you soooo much!!! The house ghost has stolen my camera, so when I'm feeling up to it, I'll start searching high dangerous places for the rotten thing! (long story.) And when I find it, I'll take a piccy!

In other news, I had my 11 week abnormalities scan and blood tests a few weeks ago, and finally got my results back yesterday.

The Blergh news, is that my placenta is positioned too low and is pressed against my uterus (it's supposed to be floating up high) which means that I may have to have a cesarean!

The worst case scenario is if I go into labour early and unexpected with out immediate attention, I could hemorrhage and bleed to death! Eeeeek!


BUT the good news is that it's still early days and the placenta still might rise into it's proper position. And even if it doesn't, at least we are aware of the problem, and we can prevent the worst from happening!


The GREAT news is... that the baby is perfectly healthy!!! In fact, the doctor said that the results were BETTER than the average good results!


So I am extremely pleased with that!!! Even if I do have to have a cesarean!

Hmmmm so that's all my news for now...

Oh and thank you all for such great feedback for the last RAT GiRL episode! I've actually already started on the next FOUR episodes!!!!

Okay I love ya bubye!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...


This fella here is a massive cute head!!!

(Excuse me while I catch my breath from laughing so much!!!)
LOL

Ahhhh haha Ok....

Today I was impatiently waiting for hubby to get home from work because I was craving nothing but CHOCOLATE!!! Hurry Up


We usually have Milo in the house which usually helps with my chocky cravings... but after turning the kitchen upside down I had to accept that I just wasn't going to find any! No

So what's a girl to do? I Dunno

Same thing I always do of course!!! Smile
Wait for Hubby to walk through the door and then kick him out again to go and fetch me some chocolate! Out The Door Blushy 2 (Well if he would only remember to take his frikken mobile, then I could just call him!! Shocked )

But who would have thought that all I had to do was bring in the mail, and all would have been sorted!? I Dunno

My ears perked up at the sound of Hubbys car pulling up in the drive way! I dusted myself off and prepared myself to put on the best sad face I could. Crying 1

As usual Hubby, stopped at the letter box and walked in with a hand full of mail. He could already tell that I wanted something! Blah

"Did you happen to bring home some Chocky hunny? Pouty "
I asked.
" No ," he said, "But here is a parcel for you" as he handed it to me. Delivery
"Bouncy 3 Oooooooooo" I said, "I'm not expecting anything" as I took it from hubby as if it were a present at Christmas time! Shaking Gift

I looked at the back to read who it was from...


'Hmmmm' I thought, 'That's weird, maybe he sent me another CD by accident, not realising he already did.' Thinking

But it was not shaped like a CD, it was something completely different! Very Confused

So I figured that there was only one way to find out! And I opened it! Bouncy 3

IT WAS CHOCOLATE!!!!! Shocked

I thought I was hallucinating at first from having strong withdrawals from my chocky! Crazy

But then it hit me!!! Crap Hitting The Fan

In the post I did a while ago titled 'Blogger Celebrities' I wrote about Dazza's awesome music and his amazing generosity with his giving away of free CDS. Well at the end of it, I jokingly added...

'He is a very COOL, TALENTED MUSICIAN! And I am excited just to know him!!!

I'm just kicking myself that I didn't get him to send me a UK candy bar with it! :-P *GiGGLeS* just playing! I have a thing for foreign candy bars!!!'


Well the little cheeky bugger sent me some!!!!! ROTFL

What a big massive cutie head!!! Thank YouDazza!!!

I certainly was not expecting it, and I was only joking around when I wrote it! (I didn't even know that sending food overseas was allowed!!) Shock 2
But I sure as heck am NOT complaining! Drooling Bouncy Smiley

He sent me a crunchie bar...



We do have Crunchie bars here, but who the heck cares! Chocolate is chocolate!!! Candy


BUT! He also sent me a Yorkie Bar? which I have NEVER even heard of...


Clappy YAYYY!!!!!! I am soooooo looking forward to tasting it! (It's in the freezer hardening up, coz as you can imagine - they arrived pretty melted Too Funny )


Apparently this chocky 'is not for girls'!

But Ha!!! Just try and stop me from eating it!!!! Way Too Happy


THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN DAZZA!!!!!! Blowing Kisses


Oh and Hubby says Thanks too, for saving him a trip down the shop! You Rock

The Stresses of Pregnancy!


Yesterday morning I had a bit of a scare, which I admit I got myself far too worked up about!

I woke up at about 5:30am with tremendous abdominal pain and no matter what position I was in, it wasn't feeling any better.

I started FREAKING out because I have had miscarriages in the past, and at this stage I am just on the brink of entering the safe zone. So on top of the pain, I started hyperventilating because I had CONVINCED myself that I was just about to lose my baby!

When ever I have a concern with anything, the Internet is the place I go for help! Google is awesome!!! You can just type in a symptom or what ever you want to know, and you can find the answer to it!

In my case, I typed in 'Abdominal pain during pregnancy - 12 weeks' and wella! The trusty Internet put my mind at ease when it assured me that around the 3 month mark in pregnancy it is common to experience abdominal pain because it is around that time when the pelvic bones shift and separate to make more room for the baby as it grows. The uterus also expands which can also be quite painful, and as long as there is no bleeding, there is nothing to worry about.

As soon as I read this, I was able to put my mind at ease, in fact, as soon as I read this - my pain almost immediately disappeared!

I thought to myself, heck!!! I hope I don't have to go through that kind of stress EVER again, because it was such a horrible feeling, the thought of there being something very wrong with this little life inside of me.

But then later that day I had a HUGE wake up call when I was talking about it to my good mate Trub (who is 30 weeks pregnant) on msn.

After I had my little whinge about it to her like it was the end of the frikkin world, she later confessed to me that she had stresses of her own that she had been keeping to herself for the last 5 weeks. And she had just been told some devastating news that very same day.

ANd this isn't the kind of stress that lasts for just an hour either! I couldn't imagine how hard this must be for her! Not even Google can help with this one!

5 weeks ago Trub had her 25 week scan and the Dr. was concerned with the results and passed her onto a specialist. It turns out there's a membrane at the back of the babies skull, internally, which is supposed to give way as the brain grows. But the baby's hadn't moved out of the way, at there was a space which was abnormally big.

The Dr. requested her to come back 5 weeks later to do another test to see if things had improved, and that day came yesterday.

Sadly, things aren't looking much better for bub, and there is also a chance that Trub could have gestational diabetes, but given the scare of the babies health, this is actually the least of her worries.

Being a Mother of an unborn child myself, I could imagine how scary this must be for her, but at the same time, I don't think I ever really could. I myself couldn't even handle an hour of abdominal pain ffs! But I have to say that I am blown away at just how strong and positive Trub is about the whole thing, and I really admire her for that.

Nothing is for certain as yet, we can only hope and pray that everything will turn out alright for her, in the meantime she is set up to go back in 3 weeks time to have an amnio which is a rather invasive test (the poor darlin.)

You can read her full story here.

And if you believe in the power of prayer I ask that you please send them her way to her, her bub and her family through this stressful time.

Besides my hour of stress with the abdominal pain, the only pathetic worries I have had in this pregnancy have been 'should I find out the sex of my baby early, or should I wait!?'

But Trub said something to me which really opened my eyes... and that was... "I'm not fussed about the sex of my baby I just want it to be born healthy."

And she is absolutely right!

Love you Trub, and me and Hubby are thinking of you! xx

Triple Tagged!!!

Aggggggggggggggggggggggggggges ago now, I was tagged by the lovely Texan Cowgirl Rhea with this meme! But since then, I was also tagged by Emma, and Thinny with a very similar meme.

Both had very similar questions, so instead of doing it twice, I'll just join the two meme's together!

Sorry it took so long to get around to it, but Giggle always delivers eventually! :-) *GiGGLeS*

1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning of the post.

2. Each player answers the questions about themselves in their post.

3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

Ok! So... I'm not quite sure what to call this meme... because it's a bit of everything!

Hey I know!...

I'll call it...

THE BIT OF EVERYTHING MEME!!!

So here goes...

What was I doing 10 years ago?


10 years ago I was 14 years old! I had not long started high school, and was your typical cheeky teenage girl who loved to hang out with her friends and run a muck!

In fact... Not much has changed! *GiGGLeS*

I loved to play dress ups, like I still do today...


I lounged around like a couch potato like I still do today...


and I still pig out on junk, like I did 10 years ago...


OK... OK... so there is one thing I must confess to that took over my entire 14 year old life!

*Sigh*

When I was not dressing up, lazing around, or pigging out... I was obsessing and stalking my deep infatuation of a certain little long blond haired boy-band who I was madly and deeply in love with!!!...


HANSON!!!

Yep! I had a serious problem! These guys were all my life consisted of, and I just had to have EVERYTHING with their face on it!!! I had THOUSANDS of posters of them, about 50 shirts, I had flags, books, hats, clocks, even mirrors, EVERY CD, signed posters, rare records, necklaces, rings, tattoos, stickers, postcards.... EVERYTHING!!!!!

In fact... I STILL HAVE IT ALL TODAY!!!

Poor Mum and Dad have it taking up their whole spare room! I just don't know what the heck to do with it all!



Luckily, this expensive addiction came to an end when Taylor got a girlfriend! (That bitch!!!) I decided that it was time to move on and I accepted the fact that I could never marry him!




So... I got myself a boyfriend instead...

How did I name my blog?

Hmmm, well at first I named it 'motivationless' because my life is so incredibly boring, I was SURE I was going to struggle with posting! Because I didn't think I could possibly have anything to post about!!!

BUT, then I managed to post every day for the first couple of months! There was no stopping me! So I decided that the name didn't suit anymore, and changed it to '*GiGGLeS*' well, because dammit, giggling is my favourite thing to do!!!

Oh and for the record, a couple people have asked me if my nickname is 'Giggle' or 'GiGGLeS' because it can be very confusing.

Well... quite frankly you can call what ever the heck you want, but for those who have asked... '*GiGGLeS*' is the name of my BLOG - as in 'The place to come for a giggle' OR '*GiGGLeS* as in Giggle's Place!

Which means, that my nickname is actually 'Giggle' (no 'S') LMAO!!!

Comprendo?

FFS just call me Preggo! Everyone else has been! :-P

*GiGGLeS*


OH! I am suppose to tag people with this!
To be honest, it has been so long, I can't remember who the heck has and hasn't done this, so this meme is free for all to do what you please with!
