View Full Version : Preg thru IVF thread 4wks - Birth (prev 4wks - 20 week scan #4)
Maorimama - So glad to hear that ur DS was a good sport in regards to his tooth...atleast its out now...hopefully it wasn't too painful for him when the anaesthetic wore off though.
So what did he get from the tooth fairy??? :p
Nicstar - :smiliedance: for you hun...i hope that u start feeling better and no more MS for u...how many weeks are u now? U should start to feel the energy coming back by 14th Week...goodluck hun.
Yes it is really hard to make a decision on car seat and what not...we haven't bought a single thing yet...am waiting for teh baby show in sydney during Sept...and then i think i'll start.
NM - Yes we are keeping it a surprise from everyone...only DH's family know. I've thought about telilng my family but i feel that they need to get a surprise too..but i do get tempted to disclose it to them.
sometimes i feel i should tell them and othe times i feel that there will be no surprise left. :rolleyes:
Mrs Mermaid - Hope you are doing well?
Jojo - Yessss...am 20 weeks...less then half way fro me actually...since we don't go up to 40 wks with twins. :D
I still can't believe it...times flying now.
AFM - Feeling good...i have my breast scan this afternoon so should be interesting. I'd be glad to get it out of the way actually...just a very concious person when it comes to exposing myself like that.
As for movements...is it normal to feel movements all over the tummy...before both my bubbas were at a 69 position...one on left side and one on right side...the right side one seems to be in the same position and i am feeling teh kicks in my lower tummy but my left side was kicking me near my left bust but i havent' felt kicks there lately...am thinking where is my left bubba now...am feeling it more to my right side now...its weird...
Do they keep moving??? or stay in one position?
I won't know which ones which soon. :o
Dearmum: So happy that you had a great time at your baby shower and that you and twins were spoilt rotten. Congrats on getting to 26 weeks as well :yelclap:. Every week the twins spend inside will make them more stronger.
Kimmy: must be nice to know exactly when you will be meeting your bubba :yes: I will be twiddling my thumbs just waiting for this one to arrive. DS was a nie surprise coming 2 weeks early, but I have a feeling this one is going to go overdue!
Jojo: Already at the 16 week mark. Not long now till you see your bubbas again and hopefully they will cooperate so you can see what gender they are. I will be doing a whole load of washing for baby when I finish up on work and tyring to spend as much quality time with DS as is possible before bubbas arrival.
Bubbs: you’re finishing up work at the same time as me. My last day is October 16th and then I have 4 weeks left before due date. Its totally normal to feel the bubbas at different positions. This one kicks and punches me at the same time! :laughing:
NM: How old is Noah now? Wow 15 kg. He is growing quickly and looks so happy in your avatar! :yes: We also bought the Safe n Sound Meridian for DS when he was born and now he’s sitting in his Maxi Rider. I think the Safe n Sound brand is a good brand. However, due to the width and size of the car seats we have to put both DS and DS2 on the sides of the car as there is no way we will fit them side by side in our car.
Maorimama: When we went to Brisbane a few weeks ago, I couldn’t believe how mild the winter weather was there. It was fantastic! But my friends did say that it does get stinkingly hot in summer as well. Wow your DS is a champ! :yelclap: Can’t believe how brave he was at the dentist, more brave then a lot of adults would be.
Nicstar: Must be so good to be coming off the pessaries and progynova! I hope the ms goes away for you soon. It is no fun at all feeling sick to the stomach with nausea all the time…..I think Safe and sound is a really good brand. We bought the meridian new born to 18 months for DS when he was born and he is now in the maxi rider and the meridian will be for DS2.
Mrs Mermaid: Good to see you are still lurking around in this thread :) Not long to go now before seeing your bub again!
AFM: Not much to report, which is same old same old. Baby has had the hiccups this morning and I had so much fun watching him kick the crap out of my sides last night! LOL!!! Some movements looked like I had a little alien in there! I love feeling those kicks and knowing that he is having a fun old time in there.
Well am not feeling too crash hot today. I was awake alot during the night with extremely bad pains in my abdomen and down lower. DH is leaving work early to come home & take me to the DR. It also doesnt help that I am looking after my neice today! She is pretty good, plays on her own but I struggle to lift and carry her as the pain gets worse then.
I am actually getting quite worried:rolleyes:
MM .. you must be proud of your big brave DS .. most kids turn to water (and most adults too) when it involves a trip to the dentist
Your are right Bubbs .. less than half way .. tis exciting ... I have to tell you Bubbs ... I think my belly shrunk over night .. my DH agrees and he had a firm chat with his twins this morning ... it is getting harder but is very low .. and not looking pregnant .. I think I am getting impatient now .. I did go and get my maternity bras yeterday .. 14 E ! my god ! I am on the first clip .. but have plenty of room in the cup and around the back but they are still supportive now .. and alot more comfortable .. good luck with your scan this arvo :hugs:
NM - hope that belly of yours pops soon .. I am happy enough until I look in the mirror :laughing: I dont think we are asking for too much, we just want baby bellies !!
Nicstar - :smiliedance: congrats hon .. hoping that MS eases soon ... the safe n sound Meridan seems popular .. two of our friends have them as well .. what brand Pram did you get ? The only twin I can find that has a bassinette attachment is the mountain buggy ...
my3boyz - I know .. 16weeks and 3 days ... I hope I can last the next 3 weeks .. am seriously thinking of sneaking off to the GP to get a "check up" scan ... ahhh .. of course .. spending one on one time with DS before new bubbs arrives, is he excited about the bubbs ? ... we are trying to include my DSD (12) and DSS (10) as much as possible in all things baby so they dont feel dejected when the twins arrive ... my DH is fabulous though .. he will make them feel secure regardless of what their bio mum says (she aint the nicest person if you get my drift).
Nothing to report .. I know, boring ! Impatiently waiting for this belly .. waiting, waiting, waiting .. wearing maternity bras now and they are pretty comfy, got some new undies too .. really soft stretchy material that sits nicely under the belly . .well that is for when I get a belly to talk about ..
Have a good day ladies .... :hugs:
happy birthday to me:laughing: 25 today.
jojo glad to hear about your boring pregnancy.
dont u just love those sexy knickers you get to wear in pregnancy rowwwwwwwwww.
dh hates my bigger knickers he said last nite as soon as you have the baby they are going in the bin:laughing:.
nicstar sorry to hear you are not feeling well.
hope the pains are just normal pregnancy pains, i remember having a really sharp pain at about 16 weeks and i thought everything was all over but it was all good.
my3boyz glad to hear you are having a boring pregnancy also. i love the kicks too it makes the pregnancy feel so much more real.
hiccups how cute, how far along are you now?i am not that far behind you so should i expect to feel hiccups soon? i am guessing you know what position leon is laying in as for me i dont know what position tyler is laying in but i suspect that his head is up by my ribs and his legs are down by my bladder. i suspect this as most of the movement is lower. will find out at next weeks scan and antenatal appt.
bubbs great to hear your boys are moving around a lot for you.
best wishes for the breast scan today, hope it isnt anything too serious.
kimmy i am guessing u didnt go have a snooze but cleaned.
i got up this morning at 6am to have breakfast and iron dh a shirt for work then as soon as he left for work i went back to bed until 9am but i didnt sleep just layed in bed with the tv on.
now i am having a break from ironing, have done the work clothes now i have to do the weekend clothes.
glad to hear dh bought u a new mattress but it sucks that u cant get comfy still.
what do braxton hicks feel like and when do u start to feel them?
dearmum great to hear your baby shower went well, hope u dont have to buy too much stuff as u got most of it as pressies.
hope your twinnies are doing well.
maorimama sorry to hear about the stuff up with the fertility clinic and medicare.
when i was getting all my stuff for tax together i was going through this years medicare stuff and noticed that the fertility clinic has put some other lady's name on one of my bills???
hope it is all getting sorted now.
glad to hear ds went well at the dentist, something i must do once tyler is born.
noahsmum how are u going? sounds like u had a fat day yesterday hehe.
sure that belly is looking great.
sitting in the pool for 4 hours hey, did u look like a prune when u got out?
christelle, crystar, meliko, ibb, jcr and kathy w i hope u are all well.
same goes for anyone i have missed.
afm not a lot to report here, only 1 more week til we get to see baby tyler again.
i smell and am getting a headache from reading and writing on here so i better go have a shower.
have a great day.
Jojo - Come on bellies!
nicstar - Try not to worry lovely i get really strong stabbing pains all the time they freak me out and the GP has no idea what they are
My3boyz - He is 16mths he was born 9p and pretty much always stayed big, he is and has always been in the 97th percentile for his weight. My plan is to have them sitting on one side of the car, i don't want them sitting next to each other just incase DS throws something at the baby, trys to give the baby food etc..
Bubbs - I can understand that! We found out with DS and only told our besties we left the sex a surprise for everyone else. I wanted at least one surprise for everyone as they all new the name we had picked and right at the end they new our c section date. So this time if people want to know the gender we will tell them i will tell them 2 names we have picked out but i won't be telling anyone my c section date, thank god i only need to keep that to myself for 4weeks!
Well i have had a great morning. Went to Big W and bought DS 3 boxes of nappies plus one box of night time nappies (i use huggies during the day at baby love of a night) a box of newborn nappies, sippy cups, drink bottles, no slip plate (hope it works) a couple of those little bonds pants that cover the nappy, bed rail, quilt, pillow and sheets for DS.. that was 2 trips to the car. we are going shopping for DS big boy bed this weekend.. oh and i finished the shopping off with a pineapple cream donut..:eek:
heather: happybirthday Hope you get spoilt silly by your DH!! Gee I only got married at 25 and not thinking about kids at that stage! :laughing: I have a feeling Leon is lying transverse at the base of my uterus as that is where I feel him most. Although a few days ago I did feel his whole body on the left side of my uterus from ribs all the way down (it was like a hard, weirdly shpaed lump!). i think he has enough room to spin around as he is my second and my uterus has been stretched out before. I am 28 weeks this week so you are not far behind me. With hiccups, they are like a rhythmic tapping at the base of my uterus. A lot lighter than his kicks and punches. You may have already felt them but not known.
Nicstar: I hope those pains aren't anything to worry about. But if they get any worse I would get your DH to come home ASAP and take you to the hospy to get checked out.
jojo: Yeah I think that its important to let your other kids know that they are still loved and will not be replaced by the twins (no matter what their bio mum says). And its great that you and DH are including them as much as possible in all things baby :thumbsup:
My DS doesn't really know yet. I keep on telling him that a baby is coming and that he will be a big brother, but he just thinks its funny that mummy's tummy is getting bigger. He loves to lift up my shirt and give my tummy a pat with his hands, sometimes if he feels like it he will also give my tummy a kiss. But I really don't think he knows what he is in for when this baby comes. Hopefully he will be OK as he is such a mummy's boy that it does make me worried that he will feel a little left out and unhappy when baby comes.
NM: Must have posted at same time as you....well I did start posting about half an hour ago and then had to do something else and have just come back to finish my post LOL! Looks like you had a very productive shopping trip today and stocked up on nappies and other things.
happybirthday HEATHER...Hope u get spoilt rotten hun. Enjoy ur day.
NM - Wow...u surely did go shopping big time. How exciting. So are there things still left after the baby sale that started last week thursday at Big W??? Its good that u've stocked up already...and its so handy when u know u don't have work to go to...and rather shopping. how exciting :yelclap:
Nicstar - Yes i agree...better to get those pains checked out...Goodluck hun.
my3boys - Ur little boy sounds adorable...its sweet how he kisses ur tummy at times...must be such a wonderful feeling. I am sure he will be ok...just keep talking about a little baby and he'll come around. :fingerscrossed:
Jojo - Yup the hardness is around in the lower tummy area...firm bumpy bits i felt at around 16 weeks. maybe the babies changed their position so it feels flatter...its strange how they accomodate themselves inside us...
heather ... happybirthday .. hope you have a great day .. I remember 25 like it was yesterday ... enjoy
heather - We must have posted at the same time. Happy birthday, i hope you have a great day... Oh to be 25 again! Every day is a fat day to me. Sure did look like a prune but i didn't want to get out it was only that rain clouds were coming over that i got out!
My3boyz - that's exactly what i worry about, DS is a big mummys boy as well and sometimes gets jealous when i'm holding other kids. he is way to little to understand right now and he will be 20mths old when this baby arrives. I hope for our sakes our boys take to the new baby very well
Bubbs - There are alot of somethings and not alot of others.. It sure is! I work of a nights now, i had really bad seperation issues when it came time for me to return to work i couldn't bare the thought of going back to work leaving DS and not seeing him for 3 days as he would have been asleep when i dropped him off and asleep by the time i got home from work, but work also wouldn't take me back part time so i had no choice but resign. I found a job doing nightfilling so i leave for work while DS is up and spending time with DH and i finish around 11pm-12am. I also put DS into daycare one day a week at 8months to help with the seperation issues. DS is now 16mths old and i now feel like i would be ready to return back to a day time job, what a shame i'm pregnant!
thanks for the well birthday wishes ladies.
just done a couple of loads of washing and still in the process of iroining. as i havent done it for a while there is heaps to do!
dh was spose to be working til 9-10pm tonite but that got changed yesterday so he should finish between 5-6pm instead so i wont be so lonely tonite.
dh already got my present which is boring but i wanted it...pjs and slippers for the hospital.
my mum spends $100 on me and got me a few little bits and pieces i asked for(make up brush and sponges and a 10 pack of knickers for the hospital:laughing: oh i should have sexy knickers lmao) plus the remaining money. dad then gave me a $100 note, i was in shock i asked him if he was sure as him and mum are married still and mum had already given me my present from them.
shopping i go saturday.
just checking in... well had my follow up app today... peanut is doing great:yelclap: :cloud9: :smiliedance:
still had little spots during the week but it was only after id been up doing things.. so the bed rest has certainly worked... im having another week off then i'll ease back into work.....
have been feeling terrible the last few days the all day sickness is back :barf: nothing else to do but cry... it really stops you from being able to do anything... but ive been having good days and bad days ( and friggen awful days:no:) but it makes me know my levels must be good...
ive been reading about all of you all week.. youve all kept me company as i lie there bored.. but for some reason the net on my phone wont let me log into bub hub still so i actually have to come into the salon (an extension off our house) to use the computer which at the moment i never feel like doing... so i just wanted you to know im keeping up to date with all thats going on:hugs:
Sarbear I am soooo happy to hear that all is well with your bub :hugs: what a huge relief.
Bubbs the toothfairy didn't quite make it to our house last night :p I hadn't written a letter yet but did that today so she will be here tonight. My mum always had the tradition to write a letter from the toothfairy and I did the same with my children....it's a nice keep sake for them even when they learn that she isn't real. Kaizer is all over the place in my tummy...it's normal for then to be everywhere and I would imagine that twins would probably switch places while they still have the room.
My3boyz we lived in Brisbane for 2 yrs before coming to Perth and that first summer killed me but you soon adapt to the weather conditions and I learnt to absolutely love it there....mind you having air-con helped immensely.
Nicstar how are you feeling hon? Hope those pains have settled....did you ring your OB for advice?
Jojo that is exactly what the dentist said to us, I think he was so excited to finally be losing a tooth that nothing else matter....he does have a high pain threshold though.
Heather happybirthday happybirthday to you....hope you get spoilt and treated like a princess.
NM sounds like your shopping trip was very productive :yelclap:. I plan on adding to my stash...I have been buying the odd singlet/romper/onesie but it's time to get serious now and get myself organised for this bubs arrival. We have brought the big things aside from a pram...still trying to find one I like and I am now considering a bassinet or the like for when we arrive in Brisbane but still not definite on that.
Nothing to add here so until next time :wave:
How are you all doing?
Maorimama - Thats sweet that you write a letter from the toothfairy for ur little boy...i agree u do have to keep the tradition going.
I remember once when i lost my tooth and had kept it in a glass with water for the tooth fairy to take...but the toothfairy didn't take the tooth but left me $1. I felt so rich and excited then. :laughing:
I think my dad couldn't be bothered with taking the tooth out...must have left it for mum to do. :laughing:
It all still lingers around in that memory of mine...the good old days. miss being a kid.
Noahsmum - I know what u mean about not wanting to return back to work because of seperation issue. I personally don't want to return back to work after my twins are born...but we'll have to see how we cope financially. My DH said we'll reassess in 6 months time but with twins thats too soon...i want to be with them for their first year atleast as a full time mum. We'll see when the time comes closer though.
Sarbear - Glad to see you here...and also to hear that u are still bed resting...yup the more bed rest the better. I can only imagine how ur MS is for u because i for once didn't experience it at all but i feel it for those that are going through the constant :barf:. Take it easy hun.
Heather - Aren't parents just the sweetest thing on this earth. :) Am glad that u got spoilt...atleast its all those things that u'll need. Did DH take u out for ncie dinner??
Nicstar - How are u feeling hun???
My3boys - how is ur boring pregnancy going? Its good that its boring...meaning all smooth sailing. :yelclap:
AFM - I went for my breast scan yesterday. Was kinda embarassed at first but the lady that did my scan was fabulous...i think it makes a huge difference. I felt i knew her for AGESSS...she was just amazing...a bit on the old side...must have been in her 50's but she was tremendous.
Anyway she said because am pregnant its really hard to tell wtih all the milk flowing in if there was anythign there...she said my right breast did look a bit congested so maybe thats why the bleeding but funnily enuff i haven't experienced any further bleed since this week...so its bizarre.
She did ask someone else to come in to have a look for a second opinon and even they couldn't see anything.
She did say that she can do a mammogram if the bleeding continues but will cover up my pregnant belly thoroughly before they do it but tahts if the bleeding continues.
Its not like a huge full on bleed...just when i leak i notice dried up blood on my nipples.
Anyway so i left tehre after paying my $200 for the scan...
I felt really bloated/stretched and achy last night...just couldn't get comfortable. everything was feeling tight in terms of clothes.
I am just growing and growing...i look like i am 7 months pregnant at this stage..don't know what its going to be like when i get to 7 months...sheesh...:no:
But other than that am feeling fine...not much else to report...like some of you..i.ts same old boring stuff.
NM: Its great that you were able to change jobs when noah came. I had HUGE separation anxiety when I had to go back to work full time. The first morning I just felt like crying the whole time. I only had 4 months off when DS was born, and will having 6 months off this time. Unfortunately cause I don't get maternity payment I can't take more time off. It would be nice to be able to take a whole year off. Plus having to express in the toilets at work each day when i went back was not so nice. I will still express when this bub comes and will try to keep it up as long as I can for the first year of bubs life.
bubbs: I recommend that if you can take 12 months off after bubbas are born (without financial strain) then it would be beneficial for both you and babies. Glad that your breast scan went well, even if you had to pay $200 for it. Better to be safe then sorry I say.
moarimama: Hope you DS got a nice little surprise from the tooth fairy last night. Its a nice tradition to leave a letter for your little boy to remember this moment by :yes:
Sarbear: Nice to hear from you and I'm happy to hear that the rest is doing you good and that bubba is doing well. Hopefully the spotting will stop completely with another week of rest. I really feel for you in terms of ms. I had it all day for 17 weeks and honestly some days just wanted to burst out crying cause I felt awful all day. I am hoping that yours will go away real soon so that you can start to enjoy your pregnancy a lot more.
Heather: Hope you and DH had a nice night together to celebrate your birthday. Sounds like you did get spoilt by you folks as well :D
:wave: to everyone else. It is a beautiful sunny day outside. Hope you guys have a wonderful day.
AFM: Been feeling enormously thirsty lately, especially in the middle of the night. i had it with DS as well. I wake up to go to the loo, but then am so thirsty that I drink a whole heap of water, but it is a catch 22 cause in a few hours i am up again to go to the loo and then drink again..... Also had pretty bad hip pain at 5am this morning. Guess I had slept on one side for way too long.
heather - Sounds like you got spoilt
Sarbear - Great to hear everything is ok
MM - that's the way to do it 1 or a couple of things a week, it doesn't seem like such a big expense when you do it that way
Bubbs - It is hard going from 2 full time wages to 1 but you learn to adjust, we don't go out as much as we use to which doesn't bother me. I would recommend 12months though so much happens within that first 12mths. Glad your breast scan went well.
My3boyz - Because i wasn't the main bread winner it made the decision easier. Because i had to travel to the city i didn't think it was worth it to only see Noah for only 30min or not at all on those days i worked. I was very lucky i had 14wks paid maternity plus a couple of weeks paid holiday, we had saved up enough money to cover the mortgage for 2 months and our bank let us take a 3mth holiday from our mortgage which gave us more time to save more money. They don't make it easy for mum's to take maternity leave
AFM - I have a terrible migrain today and i am feeling really sick not sure if it's from the migrain! I have a midwife appt today i am hoping they will listen for bubs HB
hello my precious BH ladies ...
Bubbs - so glad the scan went well ... hope you get no further bleeds .. your rubbing in your growing belly aren't you :laughing: your boys must be doing well .. not long now til you finish up work and can start to rest up .. when are you going to start shopping and doing your nursery ??
my3boyz - I can only begin to imagine the separation anxiety ... I can only take 3-4 months off as well and then back to work .. however I work from home and will be able to pop in and see my babies during the day .. my DH will be here on and off and my Mother in Law will help pick up the slack (she is a gem!) I too have been drinking 600-700ml's of water during the night ...
Sarbear - :smiliedance: you must be so relieved to see your bubba is doing well .. hoping you see the back end of the bleeding very very soon.
AFM .. well I went off to the GP today .. was getting worried about my belly and thoughts that my babies wren't growing .. it just seems too small ... and have had pains on and off for the last two days ... was getting worried so DH said go get a scan and put yourself at ease .. happy to report both bubbas are doing wonderul .. Twin A is head down ... Twin B is feet down .. so they are sitting length ways .. Twin A is measuring 17w1d, Twin B 16w4d .. both good sizes and good heartbeats .. huge relief and now I just have to wait patiently for the baby belly .. now just wait til 7th Sept for Morph scan .. I think I can survive two and a bit weeks.
:wave: to everyone else ... hope you are having a great day ..
jojo - am glad to hear both ur beans are doing well. at my 19wk scan my bubs were both in exactly same position as yours. not too sure wat position the r in now as i feel kicks in different places. :laughing:...but its a great relief to know that they r ok.
Bubbs my son woke me excitedly VERY early this morning to show me what the tooth fairy had left....he was on :cloud9:. It's so cute to see and in another year he will know that sadly it's not true but I enjoy it while I can. Glad to hear that your scan went well....hopefully the bleeding is just through congestion and doesn't cause you any more worry.
NM I get migraines maybe twice a year that really throw me for a few days....nausea the works. Mention it to your Midwife, hopefully she can suggest something for it.
My3boyz glad to know I am not the only one feeling more thirsty...I have resorted to taking a water bottle to bed with me to keep me hydrated through the night....it is a catch 22...the more you drink the more you need the loo.
Jojo :smiliedance: for getting a scan in, won't be long now before you find out the sexes.
Well finally have our rebate sorted out....went in today with the proper receipt that our clinic sent out and they initially told me that it would have to be sent off blah, blah heard it all before...but I wouldn't budge. Funnily enough I got someone who actually knew what they were doing and it was processed then and there.....so we should have it in our acc in the next few days......look out baby shops HERE I COME :laughing:
Just a quick one from me as I am at work...
Had my OB appointment today....and my long GD test on Monday.
I don't have GD :smiliedance:! But have really low iron almost anaemic (sp??) and b12 levels so have to take additional iron supplements and a B12 tablet each day.
My BP was up a bit to 138/92, so looks like medication for me as of next visit, bubba was head down, no ultrasound today :( just the doppler but heard a nice strong heatbeat :yes:.
So back to the OB in 3 weeks...only 10 1/2 weeks to go :eek:! gosh it has gone quick.....
Not much else to report but the heartburn has started to kick in.....but OB gave me Losec today to help as the off the shelf stuff does nothing.
Jojo - Glad to hear all is well with your bubba's!
MM - I haven't had one in a long time i do get them a couple of times through the year though. Great to hear you got your rebate all sorted
AFM - Just got back from my appt, i got to hear bubba's HB awwwwww... Also asked when she thinks i will get booked in for a c section and probably the 1st Feb YAY... Also found out that because DS was breeched this bubba will probably be breeched this happens when you have a small uterus! Also apparently the government are pushing for women to have VBACs now because it's costing to much money, i'm still having my c section no point in getting my hopes up only to have an emergency c section. I asked about the pains and yep stretching pains...
Oh bugger look at the time i have to pick up DS
Hi girls just reading and checking on how your all going this side of the bubba making journey.
Good to see you all are good.
A few questions for the more advanced ladies that inhabit this thread :laughing:
So when did you feel those first kicks? and is this your first?
AFM: Im almost 12wks :yelclap: have my scan on friday and cant wait to see bubby again.
mrs mermaid i felt tyler move around 20 weeks and yes this is my first baby.
just a quick one from me to put up a two photos to compare.
first one is me at 15w1d and second one is today at 26w4d.
Mrs M - How exciting your 12wk scan.. This is my 2nd pregnancy with DS i first felt flutters at 17wks and kicks at 18wks, with this one i have felt movment and flutters at 15wks
Heather - You look fantastic
:wave: Mrs M .... good luck with your 12 weeks scan ... this is my first pregnancy but haven't felt anything yet .. waiting, waiting, waiting
Heather .. I agree with NM .. you look gorgeous .. great comparison wearing the same shirt, love the big belly shot ..
Well just a short one from me today coz im really tired.
I had my doc and scan appt today good news is both bubbas have a heart beat :yelclap:but bad news is my girl is growing very slow she is only 767gms (1.11 pounds) and my boy is growing normally at 931gms (2.1 pounds) the scan guy seemed a little worried and wants to keep a eye on her so im back there again in 2 weeks:(its got me worried now.I think my boy is squishing my girl,the good news though was there blood flo and stuff is looking good so there some positive i guess.Now im eager for my next scan to see if all is getting better.
Hope ya all had a good day i will be back later:wave:
dearmum .. sorry to hear you are worried, your precious little girl still has time to have a growth spirt ... as you say, the good news is the heart beats are good and there is good blood flow ... keep positive my love ... hoping she starts pushing her bother around and fighting for some more food .. :hugs:
Dearmum I wouldn't worry too much at this stage....my sisters weighed a difference of 1.5pounds between them when they were born and when I did my middie training we had a lady with twins who was given an emergency c-section cause a scan showed that one was 6 pound something and the other nearly 8 pound, turns out that when they were born there was only a few ounces difference, just goes to show that scans aren't always accurate. It's good they are keeping an eye on you though.
JCR I am on meds for high BP too, have been on them since before I conceived. Great to hear you have something that will hopefully aid in your heartburn.
NM bub's heartbeat is music to the ears isn't it? Glad to hear your appt went well and that you will likely be given your date for delivery early.....must make life so much easier knowing when to expect your new arrival.
Heather you are one YUMMY MUMMY, you look gorgeous.
Mrs M :smiliedance: for your upcoming 12wk scan. This is my 5th pregnancy and I felt flutters from 14wks....with the others it varied from 16-20wks.
Well I sprained my ankle walking the kids home today....ouch what a clutz!! I landed on hands and knees but felt okay so made it the last stretch home, but when I had a lay down I started having a few pains in my tummy and upper back....I think I must have pulled some muscles....thankfully it's all easing now and baby is moving lots.
Just a quick one from me. I'm just about to head to bed. Dad fell ill yesterday and was taken to hospital last night. Waited up til 1am to get results of a CT and than was up at 5am for work. Just came home from visiting him now and am sooo tired. They think he has had a mini stroke and suspect a bleed in the brain. More tests to be done tomorrow. He seems pretty good, and luckily hasn't suffered any paralising or anything so i think he's been lucky this time.:fingerscrossed: anyway
NicStat - I have had severe pains from early on up to a few weeks ago. Hope yours is normal.
Jojo - I didn't start to show til about 18/19 weeks and now i am just growing. I suffered such bad morning sickness til 16 weeks and ate practically nothing but bubs grew fine. Glad all was ok with yours.
Dearmum - Its common with twins that one grows more than the other. I think and don't quote me on this that there can be up to a mx of 20% difference before you need to worry. A friend had twins last Nov and was told her baby was up at that range but they weren't too worried and than when she had her, there was about 1.3 kilo difference but they are both fine and she has nearly caught up. Just keep an eye on them.
NM - Movement Yay, mine doesn't stop moving now. Gets uncomfortable at times and i have to move her a bit LOL
Mrs M - I started getting bubble popping feeling at 16 weeks and definaltey knew it was her around 18 weeks.
Bubs - I am having major leaking on my right boob. Its ruining my pjs and i can't bring myself to wear a bra to bed and thus nursing pads. No blood. Hope the results of your mamogram come back ok.
Ok i off to bed now. Night
Oh Heatherm -happybirthday
Anyone i've missed, sorry will catch up next time
Hi JoJo & Maorimama.....Thanks yeh im trying to stay positive,i have been googling heaps:rolleyes:
My babies are laying across ways instead of the normal up and down position do ya reckon that can make a difference.
Hi Meliko....Babe what were your bubbas weight at your last check up?
Maorimama.....Babe gosh thankfully your ok,falling always scares me i keep thinking im going to fall down my stairs oneday:)yay another few days and you will be rich we can go out shopping like crazy ladies,i want to get some nappies from Bigw before the sale finishes.
Howdy Mrs Mermaid....We miss you around here!
Yeh i felt my babies flutters from 10 weeks no joke and even last year with my single bub it was around 10 weeks also.I would have dinner and lay down then concentrate on the feelings,funny they seem to move more at night.Bet your SO happy to be coming up to 12 weeks,this ones a stayer.
Hi NM....Oh your lucky getting dates already,i spoke to my doc today about my delivery but they said its to early coz things can change but they did give me hope about a VB.
Hi heather.....Your looking FAB! its amazing how much we grow in a few months hey.
Hi JCR.....Good to hear bubba is doing ok,thats the main thing.yep time is going quick for us now and its getting so exciting.
WOW! Allot to catch up on!! Sorry I have become a infrequent poster.... I have been soooo tired and the hospital/information sessions have become just crazy!
Dearmum- honey i know its hard but try not to worrie about their weight differance, if it helps my sisters twin girls always had a week between their growth, one was always about 300grams heavier. My boys at our last formal scan which was at 24 weeks were; Caleb 1 pound 8, bailey 1 pound 9 and Xavior 1 pound 12. Next scan is on Monday, we'll be 26 weeks by then and they are expecting them all to be over 2 pound. They will keep an extra close eye on your little girl, and in worst case at least you know they can deliver her and she'll survive with more than likely no problems! Please dont be worried about their weights compared to the our boys, They are big bubbas and are ahead of schedule. I am glad your baby shower went well!!!!! How awesome was it??? I bet your were just loving the whole experiance!!!! i think about you and your twins all the time, I am so pleased you've gotten so far and your complications have been very minimal!! xxxx Take it easy honey
Someone mentioned the capsuel argument for against or for?? Well personaly I think they are a waste of money for a singleton, But I think they are sooooooo handy for multiples (twins, triplets etc) because you can get bubbas ready to go, dress them etc and strap them in the capsuels before you even get outside, then just clip the seats in. Also when visiting people you can lift out the capsuels and they can continue sleeping. It would be a nightmare if I had the triplets without capsuels, it would take me 10 mins to get them in and out of the car lol
NFM- boys are doing great!! They over "over acheiving" and are bigger/heavier and ahead of schedule, drs say that if they were singletons and went full term they could be 10 pound babies lol!. They are expecting C section at 32 weeks (6.5 weeks away.... OMG) and they should be around 4-5 pound, which will be fantastic!
DM - Both your bubbas have strong HB's that's the main thing.. Your little girl still has time for a couple of growth spurts. Try not to worry to much.. I will get an approximate date at my next appt in 4 wks
MM - It sure is. Yeah it is going to make life easier although i want to see if i can get in right on 39wks as it's a friday i will only need a babysitter for 1 day. Then DH can take his time off from friday. I might have to tell a fibby to get booked in right on 39wks LOL.. i hope your feeling ok after your fall
Meliko - great to hear your boys are doing well
AFM - i am so tired this morning woke up at 3am for a pit stop and couldn't get back to sleep.
Hello my precious ladies
Maorimama - How are u feeling now hun after the fall? I hope that tummy ache has disappeared...take it easy hun...these falls scare the living day lights outta me too.
Dearmum - Oh hun pls don't stress. I've heard that in twin pregnancy one is usually smaller then the other and maybe it is because of their position, your boy could be squashing ur little princess. But take it easy.
At my 19 week scan, Twin A on left side was GD 19wk2days and Twin B on right side was 18wk4days.
They were both growing at the same rate in our 12 week scan but looks like twin B is being snatched off its food by twin A who has a pot belly. :yes:
Heather - Great belly shot hun. U've only got that belly and it looks fantastic. U're looking so well. I've grown big from all angles... :( my bum is just like my belly. :hissy:
Meliko - Wow that sounds amazing...6.5 weeks is not far at all considering how fast the days/months are going. AM so glad that the boys are "over achieving". Bless them.
Are you nervous Meliko with Triplets???
Yes am really confused about a capsule. It'll surely be easier when visitng places...hmmm..decisions decisions.
Noahsmum - If your at home today and when DH naps, maybe u can join him :D. I hope u feel beter...maybe try to have an easy day today...
Mrs Mermaid - This is my first pregnancy adn i felt flutters from 14 weeks or earleir infact but felt actual movements from 18-19wks. They're more constant now. Amazing.
You must be so excited getting to 12 weeks after what you've been through. Enjoy it hun.
Ibb - Major leaks??...no mine are just little discharge which dry up and stay on my nipples but the bloods gone :smiliedance:. I know i'd hate to wear a bra to sleep too. I have my appointment tomorrow with Obs so will know the results then.
AFM - AM feeling good...nothing interesting to report here...pretty boring if u ask me.
Oh a question...do u ladies find that if u wear slightly tighter pants that ur tummy starts aching? I've noticed that with my nighty pants and today my stockings. They're both in my bikini region now as i get really tender...
Wel it turns out my horrific pains were due to the back of my uterus being plugged down to my bowel (which we already knew about but was told shouldnt be an issue during pregnancy). Saw a bowel specialist and he has said that it is something that will need to be monitored and I need to take metamucil 3 times a day to keep pretty empty down there (sorry TMI:rolleyes:)
DH was quite worried about me as he thought I had gone beyond pale to transparent! I was very sweaty & clammy too!
Well we have 12 wk scan today @ 2.15. Cant wait, we have our :fingerscrossed: for a great result:)
Thanks for the reasurance:hugs:i needed it.
Hi Meliko....Babe your tough little boys are doing fantastic,you must be proud.Yeh i have to say just getting to that 24 week took away most worries,i kind of hope now that there going to be healthy and big enough so i can just bring them home.But what will be will be i guess.Yeh i enjoyed the whole baby shower thing it went really quick though,it was good also having the whole family chip in and help with something.Now its over i want to go and get some little things like bottles and stuff coz im thinking i will do both breast feed and formula,formula just maybe at night and when we are out.Hows your shopping going?
Hi Bubbs.....:laughing:Yes i have that same feeling and iv always worried im squishing one of them.Gosh my maternity clothes are getting tight on me i will need to go up a couple sizes soon.
Hi NM.....Oh yeh iv been the same lately up at crazy times of the morning then regreting it all day.Im alseep by 8.30 most days and iv been having nana naps during the day.Its like our body is getting ready for bubs.
Hi Nicstar....Looks like we were posting at the same time.
Babe atleast you know the problem now,i hope they keep a close eye on you so it doesnt cause other problems HUGS.
Hows everyone going today??
Jojo: I do envy you being able to work from home after bubbas are born. It would be very comforting knowing that your bubbas are just a walk across the hallway! I am so glad that both bubbas are doing well. You lucky duck being able to get an extra scan!
Moarimama: LOL about your intended shopping spree! It must be good to have your medicare rebate all sorted out as it does help to get that money back! Awwww its so cute how your DS woke you up really early all excited about the tooth fairy. Don’t worry about your DS being too old for the tooth fairy next year. You will have another little boy soon who you can indulge when he starts to lose his teeth :yes: Hope you are feeling better today after having a nights rest after your fall.
JCR: Glad that your OB appointment went well and that you are all clear of GD. Hopefully your BP sorts itself out so that you don’t have to go on medication. Did you have high BP last time? Wow you are onto 3 weekly visits already and only 10.5 weeks to go…..How exciting and scarey at the same time. You lucky thing having bubba already head down, although I guess it really doesn’t make a difference seeings you are have a CS.
NM: :smiliedance: you finally have a date for booking in your CS! Now you just have to tell people that it is a week later than that date so they don’t bug you about whether or not the baby is here yet! LOL! Must be such a relief to hear bubba’s HB. Sorry that the pains are stretching pains. I can’t imagine how it would feel to be constantly in pain.
Mrs Mermaid: Only one more sleep before you get to see bubba again! :yelclap: I felt bubba really early on, like little tickles, but the first definite kicks were about 15 weeks. This is bubba number 2. With DS I felt him from 17 weeks onwards. You will soon be feeling your little one move about in there!
Heather: Hello gorgeous mum to be :wave: My your tummy is really big now (second photo)…no mistaking that you are pregnant LOL! You look absolutely wonderful in those pics!
Dearmum: Oh you poor thing, yet another thing to worry about :hugs: I have heard that girls when born are smaller than boys by about 100 to 200 g. I really hope your little girl has a growth spurt soon so that she can catch up. How accurate are the weight measurements through scans? As long as the placentas are working well then I things should hopefully be OK. Besides, by this stage I thought that all bubbas started weighing differently, due to genetics of how big they are going to be and different rates of putting on weight whilst in the womb.
Ibb: Oh hope your dad is OK and happy to hear that he has no lasting effects from his stroke! Sorry to hear you are having leaking probs. I guess supply won’t be an issue when bubs comes and if you are planning on breastfeeding.
Meliko: I am not surprised that you are so tired with carrying your triplets! OMG only 6 weeks to go before you meet your little boys! How exciting. It is wonderful that your boys are growing ahead of schedule as it will give them a good head start when they are born!
Bubbs: Yup my tummy gets sore when I wear anything that is slightly tight. But I try to avoid that as much as possible as it is so uncomfortable!
Nicstar: I’ve been wondering how you were doing after your post yesterday. I didn’t even realise that your uterus could be plugged into your bowel??? Well at least you know why you were getting your pains and can now do something about it. I am so glad that it wasn’t anything more serious. Have fun seeing your bubba at your 12 week scan!
AFM: My back has been killing me lately. But I also had this when pregnant with DS so it is nothing new. Well just sitting here twiddling my thumbs, waiting, waiting for my next OB appointment, which is in 2 weeks. Leon has been kicking about during my post. Must be wanting to say good morning to you lovely ladies! :D
good morning ladies ..
bubbs - oh yes with the pants ... I can't wear anything tight .. it actually hurts .. all stretchy for me .. I went and bought new underwear and it is the bomb ! dont wear stockings .. love sunny queensland :laughing:
NM - Excellent to get a date - now you know when you will meet your baby :smiliedance: At least you have answer on the pains ... doesn't stop the pain of course but knowing why must be a relief .. not as bad as you .. but I have been waking around 2 and not being able to get back to sleep til about 5 - it is driving me NUTS, it happens every night and I am so busy at work at the moment that I cant even sneak in an arvo nap .. hope you can catch up on your :sleeping:
my3boyz - I am only just starting to realise how lucky I am .. we have wanted these babies for what seems like forever .. and I am grateful that I wont have to leave them for 10 hours per day .. tell Leon "hi" from me .. he knows you were talking about him ...
ibb - so sorry to hear about your Dad ... wishing him a speedy recovery ... thanks for the info on when you were showing ... 18/19 weeks isn't that far away .. I can wait another week or two ..
meliko - hello precious ... WOW, your boys are champions ... growing, growing, growing ... I hope you can get them to 5lb each .. that is my goal as well .. I think 5lb will be a good size .. not too small and not too bog to carry .. buy goodness you ave that times 3! me only times 2 !!
nicstar - good luck for your scan today - can't wait to hear how it went .. enjoy seeing your precious little bubba ... sorry to hear about your bowel problem ... hopefully it causes you no problems ... I am sure they will watch you carefully ... :hugs:
JCR - 10.5 weeks to go - count down can begin ... glad all was clear from your OB's appt ..
dearmum - I have that same scare .. I always think I am about to fall down stairs .. you be careful with the googling of stuff .. it is both helpful and alarming at the same time .. just read the GOOD stories *hehehehe* ..
MMama - hope you are OK sweet ... no fall is a good fall .. you take it easy ... :hugs: you better rest up so you can be fit and it good shape to go shopping when the medicare money hits your account.
Hope I haven't missed anyone ... big :wave:to anyone I have .. I just rush from my desk to the toilet and ran straight into the door .. I am such a flake at the moment .. thankfully my knee took the brunt of the smash ..
Bubbs - Oh i will be i am just having some lunch and then it's snooze time for us.. Yes the same thing happens to me when i wear pants that are to tight.
Nicstar - sounds like you have been in quite a bit of pain you poor thing, i hope metimucil helps. YAY for your scan today
DM - it sure is, although i am so lucky i work nights now at least i can sleep through the day when DS does. On the nights i don't work i am in bed by 8.30 as well
My3boyz - I don't get the pains all the time it must be around the time bubs has growth spurts. i only have an approximate date for now they won't offically book me in. At least this time around we know what to expect with our pregnancies ie sore backs LOL
jojo - The lack of sleep only gets worse!
Right i have just about finished my lunch beef ravioli i have been craving it for weeks! DS and I are off to bed for a :sleeping:
NM - LUCKY U HUN...i wanna :sleeping: too.
Yup that pains still there but hopefully it'll go away soon...my stockings are sitting under my belly...but i should ahve kept them there from when i left home this morning...ah well.
Jojo - :laughing: sorry ur post made me laugh about u knocking urself on the door. hope u didn't hurt urself too bad. take it easy hun.
my3boys - My big hello to little Leon. :sunshine:
I hope that back pain of urs settles down. Does heat pack help u? what are u taking for the back pain?
Jojo - Huneyyyy...get used to the sleepless nights because it gets worse as that tummy buldges out more and more...:yes:
but u also notice that ur body starts getting used to it too.
U'll pop out...don't worry about that.
I look about 7 months pregnant now and more so this week i've just popped out.
JCR - wow 10 weeks for u to go...i missed u in my earlier post...but when i go on maternity leave, u'll have ur little bubba...how exciting.
Just another quick question...after ur 19 week scan...when are we next going in for scans???
whats next to come throughout this pregnancy for me and at what weeks???
thanks for your kind words about me ladies.
think u all need glasses:laughing: i think i look like crap!
bubbs yes i get uncomfortable if i wear pants under my belly that are too tight, it was hurting when i wore trackpants for a while cos of where they would sit. i much prefer to wear my pants up over my belly.
as for your scans most normal healthy pregnancies dont have anymore scans after the morph scan.
for me i have to have a growth scan next tues as they found i have bilateral notching of the uterine arteries(can cause tyler to grow slow).
noahs mum glad to hear you enjoyed your ravioli. every time i crave something by the time i end up having it i dont really enjoy it.
hope u had a nice sleep, i too had trouble sleeping last nite, think i woke up 3 times and i think i kept dh awake.
my3boyz sorry to hear of your back sounds like one of those things that happens in pregnancy.
i hurt mine when working at coles a couple of years ago and it comes and goes all the time but has been worse since being pregnant. atm it is fine. also if i do too much bending i feel it later on when my back aches.
hello little leon kicking away in mummys tummy.
jojo stop running around!
hope your knee is ok, how is the door hehe?
hows your twinnies going?
meliko glad to hear your 3 boys are over achieving, sounds like they will be a good weight when born.
bet you are glad they arent going to be 10lb babies, ouch. my sister had 3 over 8lb and 2 over 9lb.
sorry to hear of your tiredness bet it only gets worse with the boys impending birth.
nicstar i hope your scan went really well today.
dont worry about the bowel thing being tmi, i am sure most of us in here have had trouble in pregnancy with bowel motions. i know i have and also use metamucil from time to time but i think i should probably be taking it more regularly.
dearmum sorry to hear your little girl is not growing as well as your little boy.
i hope it doesnt mean much just that she is going to be smaller than her brother.
hope u are ok.
i was reading about prem babies and girls having a better chance of survival than boys because apparntly they mature earlier than boys. not sure how true it actually is as it was on the internet.
maorimama sorry to hear of your fall.
glad to hear your bubba is still kicking away for you.
Heather - I am the opposite with pants...i can't seem to wear them over my belly at all...it starts to really hurt. I have to wear them under my belly...and this stockings I am wearing today is under my belly which has helped but the pains still there...
I am suspecting that i might have one or two more scans because of twins but i guess i'll find out at my appointment tomorrow with obs. Just need to pick up my results from my breast scan.
How many weeks are u now heather??
bubbs - How long until your on maternity leave. I don't know how it works with twins but i know with a singleton once you have your 18-20wks that's it unless there is another reason you need to have one eg baby being breeched. Going with a private obs you may get more
Heather - that's exactly what happened i didn't enjoy it. I had a great sleep for a change. I know the lack of sleep is only going to get worse.
i was meant to edit my post even more to make it longer but the computer played up grrrr.
bubbs i will be 27weeks on saturday yay 13 weeks til tyler is due.
i think he will come early, only time will tell.
ibb sorry to her about your dad.
my dad had brain surgery earlier this year/late last year to remove a non cancerous tumor pressing on his brain making him have siezures.
he also had to have radiotherapy for 6-7weeks.
he only just recently was told he can drive again.
i hope your dad is ok and a fighter and the docotors can make him come good again.
hopefully he is in the best of care.
look after yourself.
jcr glad to hear your ob attp went well and you do not have gestational diabetes.
so are u having any more scans to see if u can find out bubba sex or are u just going to have a surprise?
mrs mermaid good luck for your scan tomorrow.
hello to everyone else.
afm not a lot happening here, just counting down the days until scan and antenatal appt.
sorry i have a tmi question...is anyone having continence problems? sometimes when i sneeze a little bit of urine comes out so i am guessing my pelvic floor isnt too good.
i am currently in the process of doing the dishes, cleaning the kitchen and taking everything out of the cupboards in the kitchen and cleaning inside them.
i tells ya i am nesting already, the other day i went through my clothes and put a whole heap in a bag for the salvos.
Heather - im at the same stage as you and have also had the issue with sneezing occassionally.... glad to see its not just me!! :laughing: Im more worried that it'll be worse after the baby's born... i hope not.
Ibb - I hope your dad gets well soon. My dad had a stroke 2 years ago and couldn't walk/talk etc after it and he's made a full recovery so im sure your dad will bounce back to full health in no time :hugs:
:wave:Ladies back again
Hi Bubbs....I have gone public with this pregnancy and i was told with twins we have scans at 26 weeks and then again at 30 weeks then again at 36 weeks if you havent had them by then of course,mine are all booked in.For now they have put me on fortnighly scans just coz my girl is small but if there was no problems then its the 26/30/36 week only scans.
Hi Heather....:laughing:Yep i have the wee problem also,it even wants to come out if i laugh to hard:owhen i had my kids i didnt listen to the nurse about pelvic exercises so im copping it now.
NM....Hope you had a good sleep?
Hi My3boys....Hope your back settles down,nothing worse than being in pain for weeks:hugs:
THanks for the good wishes for my dad. I think he has been very lucky. They say he has most likely had a series of little strokes before now which haven't affected him and this one was big enough to. Still waiting on results but i think they will let him home in the next day or so if they come back ok. No lasting damage though still weak so we've been blessed this time round.
Bubbs - As for scans, i think the 18-20 is the last one except for complications but my ob still scans when i see him and i am on monthly visits til 28 weeks than fortnightly. At this stage due to my placenta i will have another scan around 30 weeks. You might have more with twins.
I can't wear pants that cut into my belly. They have to be loose, very soft material or over it or it hurts after a few hours
Heatherm - Hope the incontinence is not too bad. My friend didn't do her pelvic exercises last pregnancy and this one she is suffering badly, coughing, sneezing etc.
What exactly is " bilateral notching of the uterine arteries"?
My3boyz - Hope your back is not too bad. I have started getting niggling pains in the side of my lower back but i think its mostly from the uncomfortable train trip home as its in the avo. Yeah i am planning to breastfeed if i can. I hope this is a good sign although its one sided only atm.
NM - Its actually nice to know when you will have bubbs. I know i will have mine for xmas now. Hope the pains are easing up. I was advised we can take panadol if it gets unbearable.
Well i've had an interesting day today. My whole building has been made redundant!! It actually is news we were expecting and for me works out pretty good as i am just missing out on paid mat leave as not been there long enough but as they have to give me a job within 12 months with unpaid leave and the position ends in March, i will be made redundant when on leave so get a redundancy payout, plus annual bonus plua annual leave so i am going to be much better off.
We all got given the day off work and went to the Chelsea in chatswood. Do you know how horrible it is to not be able to drink with everyone else while watching everyone get blotto:laughing: And i wouldn't say i was a big drinker before i fell pregnant. Anyway i settled for a lemon, lime and bitters but gee the champers looked good. Wonde how everyone will be tomorrow with their hangovers!!!
Must go, over mums for dinner tonight
ibb - I can't believe that has happened at work! At least you will get your payouts
AFM - 16wks flew past yesterday YAY and 14days until my scan. DH told me yesterday he won't be able to make it to the scan thankfully he will get to see everything on the DVD he will probably get to see more on the DVD we have to take DS and he is a little monkey! So taking a close friend with me instead who is very excited as she has never been to a ultrasound before, well one that shows a baby!
jojo: you running into the door yesterday reminds me of when preg with DS. I was constantly misjudging how big my belly was and smacking it into the sides and corners of tables! :laughing:
bubbs: I'm not taking anything for my back as its just one of those pregnancy niggles that i have to deal with. besides I don't really like taking any medication in pregnancy (unless I have to) not even paracetamol. I have been getting on my hands and knees and swiveling my hips around to take pressure off my back. Its helps a little but the pain comes back again after a while.
NM: Too true about knowing whats coming this pregnancy seeing we have been there before. ALthough I have had a few surprises like horrific ms, viracose veins and certain food aversions this pregnancy that I never had with DS. I was like an eating machine with him :rolleyes: Congrats on making it to 16 weeks. Have you felt your bubba yet? I can't remember if you have told us if you have felt movements yet? Ahhh what is happening to my memory?? You know the one and only time that we took DS to an ultrasound was at the 7 week scan. Well lets just say that he wasn't behaving and poor DH had to take him out of the room so missed out on the scan altogether. Needless to say the DS now stays home whenever we go for appointments and scans LOL!!
Mrs Mermaid: Good luck with your scan today. Hope you have fun seeing your bubba.
Nicstar: How did your scan go yesterday? Hope bubba is growing on track.
heather: What is bilateral notching of the uterine arteries? Does it mean that the arteries are twisted?? Hopefully Tyler keeps on growing on track and isn't affected by them. Don't worry about the incontinence issue. I had it so bad with DS as I was carrying low and out front. hmmm that reminds me that I should start doing pelvic floor excercises so it doesn't happen this time round LOL!!!!
eve: Good to hear from you. I haven't seen you post in a while. I hope everything has been going well with your pregnancy.
dearmum: scans every two weeks will put your mind at ease with how your little girl is growing and also with seeing how your little boy is doing as well :thumbsup:
ibb: Sorry to hear about being made redundant, although it seems that it has come at a "good time" for you as you will get a payout etc that should help with bills when on maternity leave. Almost everyone in my mum's factory got made redundant a few weeks ago (they are only keeping a handful of people on :no:), they are having their last day today. Poor mum had been saving up all her sick pay so that she could come a look after me after bubs was born, so she has lost a few weeks worth of sick leave by being made redundant.
JCR: not long now till your 3d/4d scan. Hopefuly bubba decides to let you know if it is a she/he. Although I guess a surprise is also nice.

Bellamama – M/C 9 wks EDD 25/1/2010
Gosh had so much trouble with this thread yesterday....was trying to catch up on the posts and everytime I changed pages I was told it wouldn't load :hair: so gave up. Is it just me that has trouble with BH???
Ibb I hope you Dad has a speedy recovery.
Meliko it's so great to hear how well your boys are thriving....must be a relief for you with carrying 3. At least if they were to come early they would be a good size.
Bubbs I too get a sore tummy from pants that are too tight....I even find my hipster underwear gives me cramps too so this weekend I am going to get some of the Bonds maternity undies to try.
Nicstar it's good that you have an explanation for your pains.....I try to drink metamucil but really can't get past the taste of it. Good luck with your scan today.
Jojo you'll be showing before too long....maybe you will make up for it in the next half of your pregnancy ;).
My3boyz ohhhh shopping. The reason we held off getting our rebate earlier was that we figured it would come in handy getting what we needed for baby and also to get our xmas shopping out of the way for the other kids.....it's early I know but I have had all my babies early and want to be prepared. We already have most of our big things for baby so it's really just clothing etc to stock up on now. I had chronic back pain with DD so know how you feel hon....it's not nice. Hope you can find something to give you some relief.
Well still not much to report here....same old same old.....feeling alot better after my fall. I still don't know how on earth I tripped. I was pretty sore yesterday....stiff muscles mainly but no tummy pain and bubs is having a party in my tummy so he's A-OKAY!!!
Wel we had our 12 wk scan yesterday and it was fantastic. I really hadnt expected to see so much!!!
Saw our little bubbas face and bubba was very relaxed stretched out with ankles crossed. Fluid at base of the neck was quite thin and during the scan bubba rolled over and we saw the spine and ribcage. We got some pics (5) and we are telling my nan on sunday, take the pics to show her. She will be very exited her 11 or 12th great grandchild (depending on who goes 1st me or my sis)
My dates changed by 1 day to the 26th feb instead of 27th and my sis who also had scan yesterday her dates changed from 3/3/2010 to 27/2/2010...OMG you wouldnt read about it!!!!!!!
Just a quick one as I haven't caught up on everyone yet.. AND I wanted to say hi and make sure everyone is just going along nicely.
my3boyz- I'm hearing you, my back, my hips, my whole body is just aching, walking hurts and I end up with cramps and Wednesday I had swolen feet:o I have put on 4 kilo now. Sleep seems to have left me to.. OH fun, The count down is now on and I can't wait to hold my little Dylan it will be all worth it:yes:
Hi to you other wonderful ladies, I better go as I have to go and get the paint for Dylan's room and some new bra's (if they make them that big:laughing:) and pick up my pram.
Glad you ladies are well.
I've had such a busy morning since i got into work late. Had a request here to do something from my senior manager so got tied up with that...although I have logged on about three times trying to catch up on everyone. :yes:
Noahsmum - I go on maternity leave from 28 weeks which is on 16th Oct. So thats another 8.5 weeks...aaahhh...that is going to go so fast...sheesh.
Heather - 27 weeks eh...how excitnig for you. Time is going to fly now.
Dearmum - My next scan I think will be at 28 weeks but I have my next obs appointment in 3 weeks so will know more then but got told today that they'll see the growth at 28 weeks and then decide about if other scans are needed or not.
Ibb - Glad to hear that your dads on the mend. Must be so hard for your family right now. :hugs: I truely hope he does make a full recovery.
Sounds like you have urself a good deal there with the package of redundancy. I hope that happens to me when I decide to come back next year as there isn't much work left for our client and they're now looking at cutting costs too...woohoo.
My3boys - I hear you about not wanting to take anything for pains. Am the same actually. I do use heat packs in my lower back/bum area as i find that helps me with the back pains.
Maorimama - Am glad to hear that bubba is ok after that fall you had. Always a relief. Am going shopping too this weekend. :smiliedance:
Hope i find something decent.
Nicstar - So happy to hear that all went well and bubba is doing great. I luved the 12 week scan. Just amazing first real sight of bubba really.
Am sure ur nan would be ecstatic. Great Grandchild eh...lucky her to experience seeing so many great grandkids. I wish my great nan was still here, or my Nan...am sure she'll watch over my two little boys from up above though.
I only have my grandma left out of my grandparents, so atleast thats a great thing.
Kimmy - Sounds like u're kinda over it hun...not long to go sweets...just remember to take it easy. U'll have dylan in ur arms before you know it.
Jojo - How areu going missy?
AFM - Not much to report...just had my obs appointment and am happy to report that there is nothing wrong with my breasts. The midwife said that they call the bleeding term "rusty pipe syndrome". haha
so looks like i had that. infact my obs said it wasn't normal but midwife said that it is normal and can happent o some ladies...so looks like my midwife seems to have more knowledge..kinda got me thinking there for a second. :rolleyes:
But yes got to hear one bubbas heartbeat strong and loud...the other one was all over the place so obs put on the scanniing machine quickly and they're both there looking very content. :cloud9:
Am on a bit of a high today...I guess its Friday and am feeling great too...been singing songs since i got up this morning...hope it stays that way.
bubbs glad to hear your breasts are all good.
yeah thank goodness for friday woo hoo! glad to hear you are in a good mood.
ibb i think it would be funny being the only sober one as you could laugh at everyone making fools of themselves:laughing:.
sorry to hear of the redundancy but it does sound like u will be a bit better off for a little while.
maorimama i too had problems with bh yesterday but i thought it was just my internet/computer playing up.
nice to hear you are feeling better.
kimmy i hope u have fun picking up your bras, paint and pram.
sorry to hear you ache all over i am sure i dont have much longer til that is me.
nicstar exellent news that your scan went well. yes it is amazing how much you can see at the scans, cant wait for mine on tuesday.
my3boyz and dearmum i hope u are both well.
noahsmum sorry to hear dh cant make it to your scan but how exciting for your friend to see. hope dh enjoys watching the dvd of bubba.
eve so nice to hear from you. long time no hear. hope u are well.
hello everyone else i hope you are just great.
afm i had cramping in both legs early this morning ouch! my left one aches still. does anyone have any treatment for leg cramps??? i have been told tonic water.
9 more weeks of work woo hoo or should i say 36 days as i only work 4 days a week.
have to clean bathroom,toilet, ensuite and sweep and mop the floor soon lucky me:yelclap:
have an exellent weekend everyone, i will be shopping for me for a change cos i have my bday money to spend. feel guilty that i am
spending money on me not tyler though.
oh i forgot to write about the bilateral notching of the uterine arteries for those who asked so here goes...
i dont really know much about it as the doctors didnt say much about it to me.
i have googled it and about 3 things came up.
my understanding of it is that it can affect the blood flow to the baby and therefore make the baby grow slowly.
that is why i have to have a growth scan done.
not sure if it has anything to do with me having mthfr(blood disorder)???
sorry i cant answer your question very well.
Heather - my dear do not feel guilty in regards to shopping for u...u do need to treat urself so pls go for it.
I will be shopping for myself too over the weekend. :yes:
I just hope i find some decent clothes that don't make me look like a balloon :o
Sorry posted in the wrong thread. My scan was quick bubs measuring 11wks 4 dys (should have been 12wks - only 2 or 3 days too small). They want me to come back in 9 days for a repeat scan.
Im very happy just to have got a quick look at bubs with a nice hb of 156bpm :smiliedance:
My3boyz - LOl so far the only differences with my pregnancies are with DS i was constantly throwing up this time i am constantly nausea.. Yep felt bubs at 14.5weeks felt movement (actually that's somethign that was different) then starting feeling flutters at 15wks, i feel movement more then the flutters. DS came to out 12wk scan and DH only got to see about 10mins it's hard as we don't have babysitters through the day, i'm hoping he behaves a bit better this time
MM - No i have trouble with BH all the time. Good to hear your ok after your fall
Nicstar - Great to hear you enjoyed your scan and everything is ok with bubs. That's so funny how close you and your sisters due dates are
Bubbs - YAY the count down is on for maternity leave, how exciting!
Heather - He will enjoy watching the DVD i have decided that if bubs cooperates and shows us the gender i will tell DH we couldn't find out and let him find out via the DVD. I think my friend will enjoy this scan. YAY not long until your on maternity leave
Mrs M - that's great news bubs has a nice strong HB. At least you get to see bubs again
Nothing new here to report
Talk about stuffed:rolleyes:i have had such a busy day,went and had my glucose test done then headed off baby shopping again:pi bought more nappies,bottles coz im going to breast and bottle feed,maternity PJs,dummies,and.....chocolate:o
Maorimama....Babe you better hurry up i will have bought everything soon:laughing:
Oh my daughter is moving out this weekend,its good but sad she will be moving in with her inlaws for a while until she gets a rental home.Her mother inlaw wanted them so i said yeh go then that way i can do up the nursary.They have only just married and her hubby will be heading off over seas to work soon in some island doing 4 weeks on 2 weeks off not good for newly married couples but i guess they need the money.
Well better rush coz i have my sons drama night on tonight and im late like usal.
DM - Sounds like you have had a busy and productive day today! I hope all goes well with your DD move. Although it's sad that she is moving out it is also exciting to get the babies nursery started
Hello all the 4-20 Yoda ladies :laughing:
Just a quick question from the 4-24 thread about the Morp scan. In our paper work it says from 18-20 weeks.
What are your thoughts at getting the scan done at 18wks? Can you tell the sex at that stage?
Also what else should we expect?
Thanks for your recent experience in this stuff it will be a big help for us ladies that are a few months behind :)
Another wet day here in Perth:rolleyes:
Well after a sad day yesterday having my DD move out,i now feel ok and im already feeling the house is cleaner:laughing:Now im thinking what colour should i paint that room for bubbs.My hubby is like no im not painting yet GRRR he better get in the mood coz he will never hear the end of it otherwise.
Howdy Mrs Mermaid:wave:
Babe i had my morph scan at 18 weeks and they could see what i was having,i couldnt wait a day longer to find out hehe,but some ladies like to do the scan at 19 weeks its up to you.Its such a long scan that one something like 1hr for one baby and 2hrs for twins.I had to drink 1ltr of water 1hr before the scan and i tell ya by the time you have the scan your so busting.I cant wait to find what your having.I hope you get your little girl,but what ever it is will be one spoilt little bubba.Have you been thinking names yet?
Hows everyone else today?its been so quiet.
Mrs M - I will be having my scan done right on 18wks with DS i was 18wks 3days and yes you can tell the baby's gender. It will go for about an 1hr it really is an amazing scan!
Not much happening here, bought DS big boy bed, and 12 more sleeps until my scan YAY
Gosh it is very quiet in here over the weekend...i guess everyones enjoying the nice warm weather. I sure did this weekend here in Sydney...gorgeous.
Dearmum - Oh no...ur DD moved out...well i guess its a good thing...atleast u can have teh nursery up and running now. :yes:
Have you bought all your stuff now or still have some things to buy?
When do u get ur glucose test results back??
Mrs mermaid - My scanning place booked me in for a scan at 19wk1day...they didn't want to do 18 week or 20 week so 19.1 day...i didn't mind either way...i knew i had to get it done sooner or later. :p
Noahsmum - Aawww...DS got his big bed...so how was his first night sleeping in that? hope it wasn't too much of a problem.
AFM - Not much else is happening here....had a busy weekend but enjoyable. Am looking forward tos ummer...its really warm here today too.
Saturday spent a fair bit of time shopping and felt sore afterwards...must have been all taht walking although i did take rest when needed.
Sunday had lunch at friends place so the day went pretty fast...and then before i knew it, its monday again. :D
Mrs Mermaid: Like bubbs, my scanning place doesn't like to do the scan until 19 weeks. I remember then mentioning something about an organ not being fully developed until 19 weeks? But you can still see bubba's gender at 18 weeks (if they don't have their legs crossed :D). Glad your scan on Friday went well. your bubb has a nice and strong heart beat too! On the measuring small for dates, my DS always measured a few days smaller at his scans (he was IVF as well so we knew the exact dates), just as long as bubba has strong heart beat and stays about the same days behind then that it should all be good.
DM: It must have ben sad to have your DD move out, but nice to know that he inlaws are wanting her to stay with them. It must be horrible to have her DH be on fly in, fly out rotation. But like you said, it will be good money for them to save up to rent their own place. Oh and also you can now get cracking on your bubbas nursery.
kimmy: I so hear you on the sore back, sore hips etc. I feel like an old woman at times. I the sorest back on the weekend. Oh the joys.....
NM: How exciting for DS to get his big boys bed. Did you get him to try it out on the weekend? How did he go? I hope there werent' too many dramas with him nt being in his cot. My DS was OK, cause he NEVER settled well in his cot, so going to a bigger bed was a good thing for him.
Nicstar: Glad you scan went well. Man you and your sis are due one day after the other. Must be good in a way to have her so close as you get to share in your experiences with each other. But then again, I know how you wanted it to be your time this time round.
Ladies, I know I have missed out on heaps of people. I'm just really tired at the moment :sleeping:. Sleeping at night is not so restful as I can't get comfy and am tossing and turning all night. Funny thing with DS I rememebr getting up to go to the loo during the night and then falling like a dead log back to sleep, this pregnancy no matter how tired I am I just can't get into a nice deep sleep.....Oh well i guess it is very good practice for my sleep deprivation when bubba comes. 11 more weeks to go. I'm almost on my final count down :smiliedance:
We have had some BEAUTIFUL weather over the weekend, and boy was last night warm here in Sydney. We took DS swimming for the first time since about January/February. He was crying at first, but then got more confident and was walking between DH and me and then when he was at home in the water was walking around and splashing....we then had to follow him around :D He did trip once and went totally under, but when I brought him up, he wasn't crying so that was a good thing. I think it would be good to have him in swimming lessons, but I am so tired at the moment that not sure that I will be able to take him.
Hope you all have a wonderful day. its another sunny day here in Sydney. I hear that Brisbane is in for a scorcher...close to 30 degrees!!!
OOooooppppss Looks like I spoke too soon. It is now blowing up a gale outside. Still sunny though!!! :laughing:
good morning my precious ladies
thank goodness it was quiet in here over the weekend, so easy for me to catch up ..
My3boyz - I hope you are able to catch up on some :sleeping: when you start maternity leave .. it is a bit hard to have a midday nap when your at work .. I am on the sunshine coast, north of Brisbane and they are forecasting 31 here ... the smell of spring is in the air and it is gorgeous !
dearmum - hope your DD settles in well at her inlaws .. and I hope you dont miss her too much ... we are thinking of starting to decorate our nursery .. but we have a bit longer to complete ours than you ! How is that belly of yours going - you got any new photos .. you must be looking gorgeously REALLY pregnant by now ..
hey Bubbs - did you say shopping ?? Was that BABY shopping ? Buy anything worth sharing :) Glad al is well with you .. when are you going to post belly photos young lady ??
Mrs Mermaid - yep - same with me, my clinic wont do the Morph scan til 19 weeks .. I will be 19w2d when I have mine .. glad to hear all is well with you and bubba .. how you feeling generally - hope you are well and confident with this pregnancy
Noahs Mum - DS is a BIG boy now .. he must be chuffed .. hope the transition to the big bed goes well for him .. how are you feeling ? 12 sleeps til your scan :smiliedance: I have 14 ..I wonder if we will add to the girls list ????
heather - hope you had a great time shopping for yourself .. goodness, dont feel guilty .. enjoy spending on yourself now as I am sure if will be less and less after your precious baby arrives . . plus it was your birthday .. YOUR day
hi Kimmy - hope you had a lovely weekend
Not alot to report here - we had a house full of guests on the weekend, 6 adults and 4 kids .. was madness .. two late nights and I have some :sleeping: to catch up .. told them our news, they were so happy for us, back to normal today and a busy week ahead for work .. keep me busy and at the end will be another week closer to our next scan :yelclap:
:wave: to everyoe I have missed ... hope you all have a great day xo
Jojo - :laughing: na no baby shopping...i went shopipng more so for myself as alot of my personal items was finished...had to get my hair products, lipliner, iron tablets etc etc, and i got one maxi dress from SES for $29.95 which i thought was a bargain...but am just now not too sure where i'll be wearing this maxi dress as it looks a little on the formal side.
and yes DH had to get couple of things too so thats all the shopping we did. :rolleyes:
Photos...yes there are couple of photos of me lingerng around and DH today said that from this week onwards he'll start taking my pics weekly as i have started to show a bit now...so i'll be posting them up soon.
14 more days till ur scan. :smiliedance: exciting times ahead. I hope that u find some time to take a nap today...must have been fairly busy wtih 6 adults and 4 children. :hair:
my3boys - So glad to hear that DS took to the water without much issues...i plan to chuck my babies in the water early too...i am not a very confident swimmer so i don't want my babies to be like me. I enjoy the water so am looking forward to taking them swimming and then lessons too.
How are u feeling???
NM - 12 more days for ur scan...how exciting for u. I can only imagine how excited u must be right now. :smiliedance:
Am feeling bored at work...my bubba on my right is one activ little thing...keep feeling kicks alot...the left bubba i can't feel as much because of anterior placenta but the right one is doing the work on behalf of both of them. :goodvibes:
Bubbs - I probably should have mentioned it will take 4-6wks for his bed to arrive, i got the best bargin we saved $700.. The weather was just gorgeous yesterday, it would be really nice today if the wind wasn't around
My3boyz - I probably should have mentioned it will take 4-6wks for his bed to arrive. We ended up getting him a trundle as well he was able to climb up on the trundle and then into the bed. I'm a little worried about putting him in his bed when it arrives, he moves alot in his sleep. Through the night we are forever hearing "bang" DS moving in his sleep always up against the rails down the other end of the bed, right up the top of his bed.. It sure is gorgeous weather here today would be even better if the wind wasn't around. 27 at my place today!
Jojo - I am sooo overly excited it's not even funny 12more sleeps and counting! I think i will be adding to the boys list, however if i was told this is a girl i would die of shock!
I'm sorry that I haven't caught up on everyone yet, I have been so busy that I'm just dropping in:o
DM- I hope that you get DH into painting... My friend and I got in and painted Dylan's room on Saturday.. and YES I got up that ladder and swung the brush around myself..
Hi Bubbs, jojo, my3boyz, mrs M and Noah's mum.. Glad you ladies are all good with a couple scans to count down to:yelclap:
I have nearly finished Dylan's room now, his name and bedding arrived today I just have to wait for DH to come and put them up for me, as I painted his room I'm going to leave the hammering to him:laughing: (make him feel a little needed)
I go to the mid-wives on Thursday and for a scan next thursday 3rd September.
Well ladies I'm off to put Dylan's sheets in the wash!! I will take photos when his room is all done and i'm happy with it:o
Dearmum even with your DD gone she will be at your house all the time:D. At least now you can get started on your nursery. Don't wait for DH just do it, I think once you get started he will pitch in and help anyway.
Kimmy don't forget to post some picks of Dylans nursery once you are done, can''t wait to see how great it looks.
Bubbs I too brought myself some things this weekend although we did get alot for bub as well as get most of our xmas shopping out of the way.....I have mentioned before that I like to be organised. I have brought some gorgeous summer dresses that I hope to be able to fit once I have had baby.
NM :smiliedance:12 more sleeps to go!!!
My3boyz I too am having alot of trouble sleeping at night....I toss and turn constantly and am afraid of disturbing DH but he would sleep through a bomb thankfully. I struggle to get up in the mornings as a result but my family has been so good about it which is a god-send. Doesn't help that I have to make a loo stop about 5times.
Happy to report that things are still boring at my end....good thing for me as I was in and out of hospital with my other pregnancies.
Hey Ladies!!! So sorry No personals tonight, I am buggered!!
Had a growth scan today and they are the most beautifull little boys in the world!!! They're weights are, Caleb 2pound 2oz, Bailey 2pound 1oz and Xavior 2 pound 4oz!! They are EXTREAMlY happy with their growth, big boys!!! Cervix still 2.7cm so dose not look like they'll be coming in the next couple of weeks yet!! Their Chest's were all moving also, all 3 have started their "practice" breathing which it awesome apparently!! We are in love!! Also had to have the glucose BT for the 2nd time today, yep the drink was still as fow as it was 10 weeks ago!! My levels were fantastic last time but due to family history they wanted to keep an eye on it, yay for me lol
meliko - hey hon .. lovely to hear from you, especially with such great news on your boys ... you must be so excited and relieved that they are doing so well .. and they just keep growing .. rest up .. no doubt carrying around nearly 7 lb of baby and all that goes with it does take it out of you ... tare care of yourself :hugs:
Feeling so buggered also:sleeping:
My DD is hating living with her mother inlaw:laughing:i knew it.She has been around everyday i guess she is missing home.
Still trying to think about what colour to paint the nursery:rolleyes:i was thinking maybe light purple so it suits boy/girl.
Oh the Midwife called me today and my levels have come back high on the glucose test:eek:so now i need to take another sort of test hmmm great one.
Hi Meliko.....Welcome to 26 weeks hehe,oh your big boys are doing just great.You must be huge with that amount of babies,send us some pics.
Hi Maorimama....Good to hear everything is safe and sound your end.Yep i will start the painting myself soon,i will give hubby a chance first im hoping on the weekend he will do it fingers crossed.
Hi Kimmy.....Cant wait to see that special room of Dylans,its fun decorating hey.
Hi Bubbs....Yep i agree its time for pics hehe.Well yeh i have been buying bits and pieces for bubbs each time i go out but as for the nursery i havent bought nothing yet.Cant wait to get into it coz i would rather do it now before the babies are out.
Hi My3boys.....Hmmm can you send some of that warm weather over here to Perth coz its still dam cold here.Im looking forward to summer so i can use my pool and bring the babies in for a swim.
Hi Jojo....Haha yeh my belly is HUGE i will post some pics real soon need to get out of my PJs first hehe.Its countdown for your scan i cant wait to hear what your having.
Hi NM....hows things your end?
Hi to everyone i have missed sorry but super tired.
DM what about a light ice coffee colour. Would go nice with the choclate brown/pink and chocolate brown/blue combos?
I hope it all works out ok with your glucose testing :fingerscrossed:
Kimmy - How exciting i can't wait to see photo's of Dylan's room
MM - Make that 11 more sleeps to go, you can't half tell i'm excited. It's funny with DS i had a dream at 6wks i was giving birth to a boy so from that moment i new i was having a boy, this time no signs!
Meliko - Great to hear your boys are growing and doing so well
DM - All girls hate living with there MIL i did it and didn't mind it at first but then started to hate it. what colour linen or theme are you going for in the bubs rooms? You must have to take the fasting glucose test this time, i hope you pass this one.. 11 more sleeps to go until my 18wk scan other then that not much happening
Nothing happening here still just counting down until my scan 11 more sleeps to go!
Mi Mrs Mermaid.....Hmmm ice coffee sounds like a nice colour.Yeh im worried about the gluocose test now coz i proberly to have diabetes coz these last few months i have been craving everything sweet.Just waiting for the paper work to come coz they want me to take the test asap.
Hi NM.....Oh i bet your soooo excited for this next scan i know i couldnt wait.Just knowing what im having has taken the pressure off.Well i have a blue teddy bear cott set from last yr it wasnt used coz i lost bubba so im thinking i might use that so i just need to get a pink teddy bear one somewere and thats done.I would like the theme to be teddy bears coz im a teddy bear lover:o
I missed out on getting the bed cotts from BigW coz there was a sale on and they just ran out of them so i still have my cotts to buy.Its good though all this decorating and stuff makes time go quicker.
Kia Ora Ladies (hello in kiwi) :wave: (felt like being different for once) :yes:
Kimmy - Yup wanna see pics of that nursery of yours...can't wait. sounds like u've got ur hands full with getting that organised.
NM - 11 more sleeps to go for u...how exciting. I can't wait to find out waht u have...only time will tell.
Maorimama - Am so glad u found some great summer dresses..where did u shop from?
I am having serious issues with clothes... :hair:
Dearmum - Oh poor DD...its not easy living with inlaws...their expectations are far too high. Will she continue living there once her DH is overseas or will she come back and stay wtih u?
I hope her inlaws are a little understanding type...?
As for nursery...maybe check out some magazines or online for ideas for colours...u wanna be unique too.
And hope ur glucose test isn't anything to worry about...go get that other test done fast so atleast u have some peace of mind.
Meliko - So glad to hear that ur boys are thriving in there...keep them in there for as long as u can hun...
And its good that ur dr's are being proactiv about ur levels...good on them. Sounds liek u're in great hands.
My3boys - Hope that sleep of yours comes back...Like yu I have a tough time sleeping...its so hard. I am only able tos leep on my left side and sometimes right depending on position and if i find a comfortable spot but i tend to spend all night on my left side...and wake up all stiff from sleeping in one position...and then tired all throughout the day. :sleeping:
AFM - Am doing ok...I've noticed that if i have breakfast in the morning before leaving home, i start getting really uneasy wtih big burps wanting to come, hot flushes and uneasiness in the tummy. Why does that happen...
I just got really bad hot flushes and everything started getting heavy...i wasn't able to walk but the fresh air once i got off the train really helped.
I get it every time i Am in the car wtih DH in the mornings and then today in the train.
I think i have to stop eating breakfast before i leave home and instead have it when i get to work.
but other then that am good...my bubbas are kicking away...activ little babies. :goodvibes: :cloud9:
Oh I forgot to post...
I am 21 weeks today :smiliedance: :smiliedance::party:
:yelclap:Congrats on the 21 weeks it sure feels good getting up that ladder hey.As for the hot flushes and getting heavy feeling it sounds like a blood circulation problem....hmmm have you tried magnetic braclets?they are great for circulation problems you can buy them at your local chemist.
As for my DD i think she will want to come home after her hubby is gone,im hoping they hurry up and get there own house coz having her home again is good but she is messy:laughing:
kimmy: You always sound so busy with cleaning and now doing up Dylan's room. Can't wait to see piccies of it :yes:
DM: It is always a big change when you move out of home, especially if it is going to your in laws place. Hopefully she will get used to it soon. But on the bright side, you still get to see her often, which is always a good thing. I hope that your next test comes back all clear for GD. I think that it is a fasting one??
perhaps JCR (if she is reading) might be able to throw a bit more light on what is required as she did that test straight up???
NM: I can just feel your excitement about your up coming scan :laughing: Not long to go now before you see your little bubba.
bubbs: WOW 21 weeks. You are already past the half way mark. You know they say that the best side to lie on when preggers is the left side as there are less organs and big blood vessels there, so looks like you have been sleeping on the good side. Like you I do feel a bit stiff if I have been on one side for too long, but I am only carrying one and you have twins in there!
maorimama: Just like your DH, mine can sleep through any commotion, and can fall asleep really quickly (which I do envy at times). I'm the opposite. I'm a really light sleeper and any tiny noise wakes me up, plus it always takes me a while to actually fall asleep.
meliko: great to hear that the boys are doing so well and growing nice and big. Sorry that you had to do the GD test again, but I guess it is a good thing that they are keeping an eye on you with your family history.
jojo: Hello. How are the twins going?
Hello to everyone else
Ladies, I read somewhere that if you are going for the GD test not to have anything sweet in the 10 hours before the test so you have a better chance of passing it??? So if you are having it in the morning then no jam or honey on toast etc. I had plain toast on the morning I had the test and I haven't gotten a call back from the OB office so I am assuming that I passed the test.
AFM: Nothing to report. Just the same old preggy niggles which I know are all normal at this stage of my pregnancy. I have to say that this pregnancy has gone by so quickly that it is scarey. With DS it felt like an eternity before I was able to hold him in my arms. Have my next OB appointment in Friday week and will hopefully know by then if my placenta has moved up or not. :fingerscrossed: that it has moved and will keep on moving so that I can have a VB.
Dearmum - SO whats this thing with the blood circulation problem???
No i haven't heard about this magnetic bracelet...might give it a go.
Is it normal to have this blood circulation issue??
:laughing: well maybe its now ur time to get DD to clean up after her own mess...as u'll have ur hands full with two little ones...she'll have to chip in with the house work too...so it makes it easier for u...and plus good practise for her when they get their own place.
Yeh i was talking to my doc about why i felt so fainty and she was telling me its because your babies are taking alot of the blood and the blood is slow going to your head,you sound like you have the same problem.These magnetic braclets work wonders with that sort of problems,they also help for those with back aches and stuff also.
:laughing:Yeh i will have a heart attack telling my daughter to pic this up and that up,she needs her MIL to get her in order:laughing:there way to relaxed at our house there better off at there inlaws home coz they will have to pic things up and impress hehe.
Well i'm exhausted.. I think that all this work is starting to catch up with me:rolleyes: I wanted to clean the windows today, but my body just wont let me so I'm going to have an easy one.
Dylan's room hasn't come up like I thought it would:no: but I have spent hundreds on it, so I will live with it for a few days and see what it needs, maybe it's just a little empty still??
Bubbs- congrats on 21 weeks:hugs: I couldn't wait to get to half way.. I will be 30 weeks Friday just over 8 weeks to go, still fels like a life time:yes:
DM- yes get DD to help with all the house work, is her DH going to be away for a while?? She could be very helpfull if she is still there when the twinnies come home.
my3boyz- hows sleeep going for you?? I seem to be getting a little more now, but I have to wee at least twice through the night and last night get up and let the cat out as well!!
Meliko- I have no idea how you get comphy with 3 little bubbs in there, i seem so heavy out front with 1!!! But it is so nice to read that the boys are doing so well.. You must be a great oven..
Hi to Mrs M and jojo..
Well I better run and do nothing.. Might make a few calls that I was suppose to do yesterday..
Hi everyone!! I'm back!! Gees I have been away for almost a month and I'm sure so much has happened!!
I've been sooo busy at work with my events. Daffodil Day is this Friday!! I still have a few events next month and hopefully Oct will be a little more quiter but it's also Breast cancer awareness month and will prob be busy with Pink Ribbon Day and Girls Night In. For those who don't know I am an Events and Fundraising Coordinator for the Cancer Council NSW and we are into our busy events season.
My comp at work is sooo slow so I don't even bother logging in when I get home but I will try to log in more often on my lunch breaks etc.
I think we have a new thread which I have read and good to see that there is another girl on the list!! :thumbsup:
Anyways all is good on my end. I'm 25 weeks today and getting bigger and bigger! I'm feeling Keira move and kick around which is such an amazing and exciting experience.
How is everyone going?
Hope you are well...missed everyone hope that everyone's pregnancy is going well. :flowerz:
Morning All :wave:,
Meliko wow your boys certainly are going from strength to strength which is fantastic news....what little warriors they are. Glad that all is ticking along nicely for you.
Dearmum I didn't much like living with my IL's either so we ended up back at my parents for about 4 years in our early days. I also was going to suggest the same colour as Mrs M did.....a light latte colour will go beautifully with pink/blue and choc brown....also will tie in nicely with a teddy theme.
Kimmy maybe you could post some pics and get our thoughts on what might be needed.....although I think as all women you are being more critical......I am sure Dylans nursery looks fantastic.
Bubbs I got my dresses from Jeanswest and Justjeans....two of my fav shops....they have some gorgeous summer wear in stock. I also brought 2 dresses from K-mart that will be breastfeeding friendly....all I need to do now is find a maternity convertible bra....not even sure if such a thing exists though.
My3boyz....I certainly envy my DH falling asleep easily and sleeping through anything....like you I am an extremely light sleeper....I always have an ear on the kids and will get up at the slightest noise.
Timo lovely to have you back.....glad to hear you and bub are well.
NM :smiliedance: 11 more sleeps to go. Both DH and I dreamt with our first that he was a boy and he was and DH was so sure with this one that we would have a girl....but like you I honestly had no inkling whatsoever. Either way I know you will be thrilled.
I woke with the worse heartburn last night....it was horrid and kept me up as I could not get back to sleep so feeling :sleeping: now. Lucky for me I don't have much planned for today.
Havew a great one Ladies :flowerz:
Timogirl - :wave: nice to have you back ... so you have settled on a name for your precious girl .. Kiera is lovely ..
Bubbs - I hear your pain with clothes ... I just got summoned to Melbourne, flying out tonight for the rest of the week - do you think I can find enough business clothes to get me through 3 days in the office .. NOOOOOO .. I thought my belly was the problem, WRONG ! It is my HUGE boobs .... the next 3 days are going to be a disaster, I can just fell it .. :D
my3boyz - twinnies are going great guns .. they are growing everyday .. I can just feel them getting bigger and bigger ...
Kimmy - what aren't you happy about with Dylan's room ???
Noahs Mum - not many people understand or believe me when i say this but I could happily live with my MIL ... I just love her and we get on so well .. she is just like my Mum .. I have known her for 20+ years and I am the daughter she never had ... I couldn't handle living with my own mother .. :no: ... that would be TOOO much for me and my DH.
Maoriamama - you poor love with heartburn .. I use to get reflux (in my twenties, bad diet and too much drinking :laughing:) and it was horrid ... hope you catch up on your rest today...
dearmum - we can not wait to see our little peaches and know if they are boy or girl peaches .. I think I get more and more excited everyday ... and now the belly is growing it all feels so real ... I am sure your belly is growing .. those babies of yours are getting big .. when is your next scan to check on the growth of your precious little girl ?
:wave: to everyone else ... rushing around today .. need to go back a bag to go to stinking cold Melbourne tonight ... not happy about it at all .. wander if my OB will put a trael ban on me :laughing: maybe I should ask ..
have a good day, hope you are all well
DM - You can't half tell by my posts how excited i am hey LOL.. Yeah it sure does make it easier i just want to get stuck into painting, decorating etc. If you really want those cots from big W go back and get them on raincheck!
Bubbs - Same thing use to happen to me when i was getting the train to work when pregnant with DS. I did that stopped eating on the train and ate once i got to work, it didn't make a difference with me though, i hope it does with you.. YAY your past half way
My3boyz - You can't half tell i'm excited hey, fingers crossed you get to have your VB
Timogirl - Welcome back! Great to hear your doing so well, Keira is just a beautiful name
MM - Exactly i just want to know! the wait is killing me
Jojo - I believe you there are a small amount of people out there who have great relationships with there MIL's in my case i have 1 friend LOL.. That's fantastic you have a great relationship with her
Dearmum - It makes sense what ur dr told u about the blood going all to the baby and nothing to my head, and hence feeling light headed and hot flushes. I might have to invest in this magnetic band.
I somewhat agree with ur DD's situation...that staying with her inalws might get her into shape with housework...sometimes its the best situation but then hopefully the MIL doesn't expect too much either from a daughter in law...
NM - Yup less then half way indeed...infact it says i have 18 weeks 6days left but i feel it'll be about 15 weeks from now that i'll give birth...i have a feeling it'll be December anytime...am actually due 5th Jan.
Jojo - Hopefully u get some decent time to go shopping in melbourne for clothes. :yes:
But i can only imagine how tough it would be for u.
So u're back home on Friday evening?
Maorimama - Hows the heartburn now? try mylanta or cold milk...that often helps me with heartburn.
Maybe check out myers for the convertible bra or some maternity shop...not too sure hun...but sounds like some nice dresses are out for summer...might go and check them out myself.
Kimmy - Am sure the nursery looks just fine...its looking empty coz little dylan is not there. :p but am sure once u leave it alone for a couple of days, u might start noticing what u're missing and adding in the little extras but i have no doubt that it looks gorgeous. Pics pls???
Timogirl - Nice to see ur shining face around here luv...thanks for remembering us. U must be fairly busy with all these events to organise but it still must be so rewarding to raise money for such a fantastic course. Good on u.
Glad to hear also that everythings smooth sailing at ur end. :yelclap:
AFM - Was looking in the mirror and i've just noticed that i look about 7 months pregnant with a single pregnancy at 5 months twin pregnancy...I'll have to get my pics up on board because i am just popping out now.
I was telling a work colleague that am pregnant with twins...and this other youngish lady who already has two girls was in the kitchen listening in on our conversation. I happen to mention to the older lady that I am 21 weeks this week and the young lady goes "oh my god" "Oh cheez" i wasn't even showing at 21 weeks.....and the older lady said to the young lady well u do have to realise she does have twins in there...she goes oh yeah i know that but still...i just thought how rude are u...i wasn't even talking to u in the first place nor did i want ur personal opinion.
anyway she annoyed the living daylights outta me. :hair:
i just really havent been bothered coming into the salon to go on the comp so im sorry i havent posted.. but i read everyones posts everyday on my phone.. but like ive said before i cant log in...
im back in work today :no: for a few hrs and again sat morning so i shouldnt complain..
ive responded well to the resting:sleeping: i havent bled for a while now:smiliedance:
i had a horrible night friday night... i made roast for tea and i just had the vegies (im a vego) and within mins of finishing tea i had painful runs (tmi sorry) and spent the next few hrs going from bed to the toilet crying in pain cos the cramping in my tummy was awful....
dh took me to emergency and they took me through and the *****y nurse wouldnt let dh come with me.. didnt tell me what was going on... just came in and hooked me up to an iv.. but it really hurt and she said 'oh we have a dribbler!!!!'
she nicked my vein badly and id bled on the bed and the floor.. once she hooked me up with no explanation she left me alone in the room... i was crying and finally dh came in... we were left there for 3 hrs whithout being seen!!!!!!!!!!!!:banghead:
at 3am i said im exhausted can i just go home... so 1st thing sat morning i called fs and he was in and out of epu's at mivf but he squeezed me in for a scan and peanut was doing great :cloud9: really put our minds at ease!!!!!
it has really tired me out... so i have been relaxing ever since... its so scary when you think somethings going wrong...
apart from that im not too bad... im still nauseous all the time:barf: and some foods i loved before arent tasting the same now!!! and cos im hungry every min of the day im getting bored eating safe foods...
im sorry i dont have time for personals coz my client is due in 5 mins... but im glad your all doing great!!!
just a quick one from me tonite, i hope to do a longer post tomorrow when i get home from my antenatal appt.
had my growth scan today and tyler was going well.
lady doing the scan said he is approx 1.1kg.
we got a 3d pic of him today but only that one plus a normal pic. normally we get 8 pics of him.
i was a little disappointed as i expected todays scan to go for a lot longer than it did. oh well i have our 3d/4d scan coming up on the 5th of september.
Hello, Sorry i haven't been in here for a bit.
Dad had his 2nd stroke in 6 days on Monday and is back in Hospital. He hasn't been as lucky with this one, its a bit worse, affected his speech, thinking and he is extremely weak on the left side. Luckily the drs think this could be temporary but they are trying to work out what is causing the strokes as each time he has one, it gets worse and really how many can one person have before it stuffs them up completely?
I decided to take today off as i am just so tired and exhausted from going to work and back and forth to the hospital and not eating right. I think its all caught up to me now.
I've had a quick read through your posts and can see
DM - Your DD has moved out. I think its good to leave the nest. I think you feel more obliged to do things when you're under someone else's roof and she might pick up some cleaning tips. I'm sure its an adjustment she'll get used to.
NM & Jojo -Not long til your scan now NM. So exciting. I bet the countdown is excruiating for you. I have a great relationship with my MIL and FIL but i don't think i would want to live with them for long. They are just like a 2nd pair of mum and dads but i couldn't go back and live with my folks either.
Sarbear -I'm sorry to hear you haven't been well. I am glad the bleeding has stopped.
Bubbs- I am really showing now. My belly just keeps growing but i love it. Belly button is yet to pop. When does that happen? I'm still getting told i'm small for 5.5 months but i feel comfortable so far. My boobs are back to killing me and my right still leaks at night. I'm very conscious of it during the day but nothing yet. Bubs is moving lots though has been a bit quiet this last week but when i finally get to bed, lets me know she is there. My belly has started to move a tiny bit when she does which is nice.
I can't do too many personals, i am suffering a really bad headache today. Didn't have a great night. Had to sleep with my legs on pillows raised as i had such bad pains (not cramps) butjust aches which kept me awake. I'm nearly 22 weeks so not long til viability. Hope you are all well.
Heather - I was thinking of you this morning when i was coming in, that we hadn't heard from u and then ur message was there on the thread. Glad to hear that Tyler is doing well and is already 1.1kg. :yelclap:
Pity about the pics but like u said...atleast u have another scan coming up...
Ibb - So sorry to hear about ur dad hun. :hugs: It must be so hard seeing ur parents go through something like this. I hope they can detect why it is happening and treat it ASAP. My thoughts are with you and ur family.
And am glad to hear that u can still feel ur little bubba...i guess because u're so occupied during the day that you don't really notice until its time for u to relax...
enjoy the movements...
Sarbear - Oh u poor thing...do u have any idea why u are cramping like that? I agree it must be so scary to experience but am also glad to hear that ur little bean is doing just fine...
I think the more rest u take the better it is for u. work can wait. Take it easy.
AFM - Am doing well...nothing to report. DH took a pic of my belly but i'll have to get it uploaded. Will try doing it in the next day or so.
its my DH's birthday today...i have yet to buy him a present and i havent' got a clue what to get. Will go to myers and see what I can find for the special boy.
Other then that not much else to report...same old same old...boring at the moment but i guess thats a good sign. :D
I had a crazy night last night i was cooking away and thought i would jump onto bubhub for a bit anyway i came back and everything was burnt:oso there i was rushing to cook something else,while i was cooking i thought i would run a bath for myself anyway i forgot about it an my room got flooded :oi finished cleaning up everything then thought of cooking custard and i even stuffed that up.What a night thats never happened to me:laughing:
Well its a perfect day here in Perth im going to get out and enjoy it.
Hi Bubbs....Im looking forward to see your belly pics.My belly button is out now and my DDs both cant believe it they said OMG thats gross.
Hi Ibb.....:hugs:Sorry to hear about your dad i hope it settles down soon so he can recover somehow.My mum had a stroke at 47 it affected all her left side but her brain was normal,she did recover but she cant drive and she still has a limp but the main thing is shes still around.She is now on some pill to keep the strokes away.
Hi Heather....Oh your little boy is coming along nicely,yeh i was disapointed at my last scan coz they only took one pic of one of my twins,she had no brain why would i only want one GRRR.
Hi sarbear....Take it easy.
Ladies im thinking of baby blue walls now with pink things on the wall so theres at bit of each what do ya reckon?
Bubbs - Your bubba's might surprise you, i have a friend who carried her twins full term! How exciting though in 15wks you could have your bubba's with you. OMG how rude was that girl at work, does she not realise that every pregnant women's belly grows differently. I popped sooner with this pregnancy and i am also bigger this time around. Some people!
sarbear - OMG i can't belive the nurses at the hospital have been so rude, if i was you i would complain about that nurse and the way you were treated. Glad to hear your bubba is fine and doing well
heather - Great to hear Tyler is doing well, at least you have your 3/4D scan to look forward to!
DM - I have done the same thing LOL.. LOL about your belly button mine never came out with DS it just went flat. What about if you painted one wall pink one wall blue one pink one blue?? A friend of mine has done that in her house in her daughters room using pink and purple, it looks pretty good!
Ibb - I hope they find out what is causing your dad's strokes. The count down is killing me esp when i see people in my "due in thread" sneaking and having gender scan's done at 16-17wks.. Please try and look after yourself as best you can while your dad is sick, remember you need to eat right and get some rest. Thinking of you and your family
Nothing to report here today It is friggin frezzing here this morning DS is at preschool i have been to get my nails and pedicure done and in about an hour i am meeting a friend to help her with your uni application, i really should be cleaning the house... Oh well!
Dearmum: Do the magnetic bracelets really help with back ache as well? If so then I think I may go out and buy one. LOL about the night that you had! I does happen once in while when nothing goes according to plan! :laughing:
Kimmy: Aaawww darl. I am sure that Dylans room looks wonderful. I think leaving the room for a couple of days would be beneficial. You can ponder what it is that is needed to complete Dylan’s room. I am happy to hear that you are getting a little bit more sleep. I still lie awake for ages when I go to bed and then have trouble going back to sleep if I wake to go to the loo.
Timogirl: Wonderful to hear from you :yes: You sure do sound like you have been one very busy mumma to be. Looks like your pregnancy is going really well.
Sarbear: I am so glad that the bleeding has stopped. Sorry to hear you had such an awful experience at the hospital with the nasty nurse. And to not have anyone explain anything to you or why you were getting a drip inserted is terrible. I am glad that your FS was able to give you a quick scan and that bubba is doing OK. I also had the weird taste thing in my mouth for the first 17 weeks. Foods and drinks that I normally liked tasted wrong. It only lasted as long as my ms did so that was a good thing as I really missed drinking my tea. Hopefully your ms passes soon and you will be able to enjoy your food again. Keep on taking it easy.
Ibb: I am so sorry to hear about your dad :hugs: I hope that they are able to find out why he is getting these strokes and treat him accordingly. Hopefully his symptoms (weakness on left side etc) are only temporary and will not last too long. Congrats on making it to 22 weeks. Not long now till the 24 week milestone!
Moarimama: have you tried Mylanta for the heartburn? Hopefully it is just a one off, although I have heard that it is more common in second and third trimesters cause of utuerus pushing up on stomach.
NM: It will be exciting to see if you have a girl or boy when you go for your scan. Have fun getting pampered at your manicure/pedicure.
Jojo: Glad to hear that you are having a “boring” pregnancy and that twinnies are doing well :D I also have a very nice MIL as well. She said that her MIL was nasty to her and that she vowed that she would never treat her daughters in law the same way. She looks after DS throughout the week, stays at our place and then heads back to her place for the weekend. FIL also comes up quite often whenever he has rostered days off from work. We are very lucky to not have to pay for childcare and know that our DS is getting the best care possible from a loving, doting grandmother.
Bubbs: I wouldn’t worry about what the younger work colleague said about your showing so early at 21 weeks. I personally love looking at my big belly and don’t care what others think or say LOL! People carry their babies differently and I can tell you now that I was already showing at 21 weeks and I am only carrying a singleton. You must look marvellous with your nice big belly. Can’t wait to see it when you post your piccies. Happy birthday to your DH happybirthday
Heather: I am so glad that Tyler’s growth scan went well and that he is measuring nice at 1.1 kg. Sorry you weren’t able to see bubba for longer. For my morph scan, cause Leon was asleep, the sonographer finished all her measurements in about 15 minutes. Poor lady had to stall for time as we were paying $220 for the scan and she kept on asking us if we had any questions for her! LOL!! Not long now till your 3/4d scan. You will get to see what Tyler’s face looks like. Now that will be exciting!!
AFM: Nothing much to report here. Gosh I must sound boring at times. I got an invoice in the mail yesterday for my NT blood test. I had been expecting this bill 4 months ago, but finally got it yesterday. Its only for $42 so not too expensive. I can't wait for my oB visit next week. I am on 4 weekly visits at the moment and will be hitting 30 weeks next week!!!! OMG i will then be on the final count down!!!!
my3boys - WOW 30 weeks :smiliedance: :smiliedance: :smiliedance:
Not long to go now hun...are u nervous/excited??
I think I am more concious about my belly because i've always been a shy girl and never usually expose myself, so to have the focus coming right on my belly is kinda also making me concious. I guess i'll just need al ittle getting used to as well but i have to learn to block out these negative comments...as it really affects me at times. it makes me feel that maybe i do need to "diet".
NM - I would love it if i can carry my babies to full term...fingers crossed that it happens but lets see...
I hope u enjoy ur nice pampering session with ur mani and pedi.
Dearmum - :laughing: u are hilarious...i hope u didn't go crazy cleaning up after such an eventful night and got help with the cleaning.
Blame it on the baby brain...thats what i've been doing at home and i tend to get away with alot of things. :laughing:
Use it to my advantage...that babies are taking away my good old brain so its leaving me looking mental. :p
I think i'll really miss being pregnant...there seems to be so much more opportunity to get spoilt...its great.
dearmum sorry to hear of your crap nite.
i think i would have just cried like the time my cats stole my breakfast:laughing:.
glad to hear your dd has moved out but it is unfortunate that it is her mother in laws place that she is living in.
i lived with my now mother in law but at the time dh and i were olnly gf and bf then fiance.
we are no longer talking to her but we were for a few years after we moved out.
how are those twinnies going?
ibb i am sorry to hear your dad had another stroke. hopefully the drs can find the problem so no more strokes for your dad.
take care of yourself wont you, remember you have another life to look after aswell.
my3boyz great to hear your pregnancy is still going along boringly. hope your ob appt goes well next week, i had mine today and then again in 3 weeks time.
noahsmum i hope you had fun getting a pedicure and manicure, i want to paint my toenails but not sure if all the fumes would be good for tyler.
bubbs glad to hear your pregnancy is also boring.
hope your dh has a good birthday.
hmmmmm still waiting for that picture of your belly.
sarbear sorry to hear you have beeen unwell. also sorry to hear of the treatment the hospital gave you.
i hope u feel better now.
maorimama sorry to hear of the heartburn, i hope other than that u and bubba are fine.
i havent yet had heartburn but i heard that people who do have it end up with babies with lots of hair on the head. i wonder if tyler has hair or not? dh didnt have much when born but i had a big mop of black hair.
kimmy mmm cleaning the windows sounds like a good plan to me. i want to do mine also but as the weather is not yet the best i am putting it off.
we have one day of nice weather(20degrees) then 3+ days of windy or rainy crap weather.
sorry to hear of your body aching still.
timogirl sounds like your work is very busy atm.
25weeks yay only 15 weeks to go til your little girl is due.
glad to hear she is moving about lots.
meliko glad to hear your growth scan went well.
your boys sound like they are growing nicely.
i also have to redo my glucose tolerance test in a couple of weeks as i have a family history of diabetes. i did one about 12 weeks ago. i didnt really mind the taste of the drink.
jojo yeah it wasnt too bad shopping for me although i did buy tyler a little denim jacket from pumpkin patch reduced to 12.99 from 32.99.
still have 100 buks left to spend which i think i am going to buy a large photo frame with but it is 120buks so i will be using 20 of our money.
how are your twinnies going?
hello to everyone else from me and tyler is currently also saying a big hello to you.
afm had growth scan yesterday and antenatal appt today.
tyler is well and is positioned head down. fundal height of 27cm so spot on.
as mentioned above i have to have another glucose tolerance test on the 8/9.
i then have an antenatal appt on 16/9.
next big thing is the 3d/4d scan on 5/9 woo hoo.
i asked what my birth options are today and got told water birth was not an option as i am high risk but i can still move around freely if i wish to whilst in labour and use a bath for pain relief.
started on tonic water today as i am having a few leg cramps more often.
My3boyz how exciting to nearly be in the final stretch. I have been getting heartburn since just after my transfer so pretty much the whole time now....my Dr said high levels of progesterone can cause that. Nothing I have tried seems to work.
Heather sounds like Tyler is growing well. I had heartburn in my other pregnancies but no where near as bad as this time round....and no the wives tale about your baby having lots of hair is not true well atleast not with us....none of our children were born with much hair and I had an entire wig at birth so must come from DH's side.
Bubbs I have finally found something to help with the constipation....kiwifruit. I have been eating 3 a day and it is working a treat.
Dearmum :laughing: sorry hon had to laugh at your nite....maybe that's telling you it's time to let your family pitch in more. I too have had days like that where nothing I do goes right, but today is a new day.
Ibb so sorry to hear of your Dad's ills....must be so hard going through something like that. You and your family are in my thoughts :hugs:.
As usual not alot happening here...just the usual tiredness and niggles. Have another appt on Monday so just counting down for that.
Well i had today off as i was so tired. My legs have started to swell now. I went to the physio today and he said i have to wear flight socks during the day to prevent the pains in the night.
Saw dad today. He looks good. Still pale and in pain, mostly cardiac and one of his arms. He's still very weak. His speech is alot better but his memory is shocking. He is having trouble remembering names of items etc and when we pass on someone's love he asks who's that. When we tell him, he remembers but he also can't remember small things like what he ordered for dinner etc Still hoping it is temporary.
Thanks again for your kind words. He's still undergoing tests so no news on whats causing it so far.
I promise i will catch up on personals soon.
My3boyz - I love going to get my nails and feet done mind you i was there are 8.30am. OMG your on the home stretch how exciting!
Bubbs - It's totally natural i struggled big time once i started to show, i have never been one to wear tight tops no matter how big or small i was as i got bigger and bigger i started to learn to love my body in that belly are perfect bubba's just waiting to meet there mum.
heather - if your painting your toe nails yourself you will be fine, i was getting my nails done right through my pregnancy with DS and i am again with this one the fumes aren't that bad or that strong
Ibb - Please take it easy and make sure you get some rest. I hope your dad is ok
good evening ladies
greetings from chilly Melbourne ..
my3boyz - 30 weeks ... you are so very close to holding that beautiful baby .. we are going to be lucky too .. my in-laws are moving up to help us with the twinnies .. we are so thankful and they are so excited to be part of the grandkiddies lives ... it will be such a huge relief - emotionally and financially - to have them looking after the babies
bubbs - ignore the insensitive comments of others .. be proud of your belly .. you have two precious babies growing in there and every women has a different shaped and sized belly .. can't wait to see your belly shot ..
ibb - so sorry to hear your Dad is not well again ... :hugs: hope he makes a speedy recovery and they find the root cause so it doesnt happen again ..
MM - do you get a scan with your appt ??
heather - glad you enjoyed your shopping ... my twinnies are going great, thanks for asking :)
dearmum - WOW, what an eventful night you had .. too funny .. you poor love .. a nice mess you made in the kitchen and bedroom :laughing:
sarbear - sorry to hear about your crappy experience in emergency .. seriously, some people need a personality adjustment .. you weren't well and not doubt stressed about your peanut and you have to deal with someone that has NO bed side manner ... glad that your scan showed all OK .. and a relief your bleeding has stopped .. wishing you a boring pregnancy from now forward .. :yes:
:wave: to everyone I have forgotton ... hope you are all well ... chat later ...
I have not been on here for a looonnnnngggg time!
Mostly because I dont have time, and also because I've been having a few migranes.:( And being on the computer makes it worse.
I didnt have time to read all the posts tonight, there are alot of posts!
Well its good to see so many here.
Ooo, baby is kicking as I type. How precious. Its the best feeling in the worl and I thought I would never get to experience it.
ibb- sorry to here about your Dad. Its so sad when a loved one gets so ill. My Pa just had a huge fall a few weeks ago, smashed his hip to peices. They said had he had hit his head in the fall if would have killed him, it was that hard. But he is doing well now. I am very close to my Pa, and love him very much. :babydust2: for your Dad's recovery.
Had my last scan today. 19 weeks. Everything is going great. I am loving being pregnant.
Hope everything is going well for everyone.:thumbsup:
Hope I can get on here more often so I can see how everyone is going.
:wave:Ladies back again:p
Today i had a great day,i went and done more baby shopping:Di bought some dummie clips,a nappy stacker,baby bath,my girls cott linen (pink bears)and a couple of cute teddy bears,oh and some hooded bath towels.I could have kept going coz i wanted this cute bear mat and bear laundry basket but i had to stop myself,i will get more things next week.I have told hubby i want sky blue on the walls and he just rolled his eyes,im going out and buying it tommorro.Yeh so there i was going from shop to shop looking for the pink teddy bear cott linen and boy i was the only one walking so slow and i thought i was in labour coz i had a slight back pain and i was leaking :laughing:but it went away thankgod.
Hi My3boys.....Yep those magnetic braclets sure do help with aching bones and back aches,you have to keep them on all the time so even when your sleeping.There only cheap aswell like $25.
DM- LMAO!!! That cracked me up!!! I did the same thing last week!.... well not to the extream you acheived lol, But I got so involved with home and away, forgot the bath and flooded the bathroom, didnt burn anything tho lol! But I was soooooo ****ed off cause it used all the hot watter and went cold, so I had to wait 2 hours for the water to get hot again so I would re-fill it!!! Your shopping spre sounds awesome!!! I have brought pretty much everything now... So glad cause I am finding it SO hard to even get out of bed these days let alone go shopping!!!
Well We started the nurcery today!! yay!! All the walls are masked up ready to paint. We have gone with a pretty complex colour scheme, ecru bottom part of wall, white wooden boarder and blue and ecru stripes top of wall..... It will look awesome but will be a challange!! i am as usefull as tits on a bull, cant help much... lol. I will post a pic when its all painted and set up!!! Exciting stuff!! 27 weeks monday...... going sooooo quckly!
DM - Another productive day i hope your getting plenty of rest as well! Sounds like once you paint your nursery is going to be finished. Do you have much more to buy?
Meliko - You sure sound ver creative the nursery sounds like it is going to look amazing once you are finished. It's so exciting doing up a nursery!
AFM - Nothing new to report we are off to a make up swimming lesson at 9am DS just loves to swim he even swam to the instructor last week (not far) for the first time!
Heather - Glad to hear that Tyler is head down already...so is there still a chance of him shifting or he will be head down till the end now??? How exciting...
Maorimama - Is ur appointment at the obs? I bet u can't wait...
How is the rest of ur pregnancy going? smooth sailing? Always a good thing.
Ibb - :hugs: What ur dad is going throuigh sounds like something my nanna went through...she also suffered from a stroke and had a tough time remembering things...i think as she started aging, she started getting worse...for her it was more out of shock that she suffered the stroke. She was around 70 or so when that happened to her and she lived till 93...she would forget that she had eaten and then tell everyone that no one gave her food...she hardly remembered us when we visited her...but the funny thing was she remembered everything from her childhood...her sister and her brother...all her childhood memories were with her.
I truely hope that they can find out why ur dad keeps getting the stroke. It isn't the best thing for anyone to experience...I hope he has a very speedy recovery. :fingerscrossed:
And u try to take it easy hun...u need to think about ur health as well as ur little bubba.
Jojo - Yes will post the pics up soon...we took some shots last night as well, i just need to upload them. Might do them tonight.
How is ur melb trip going??? hopefully not having too much drama's in regards to clothes??
Zoe - Glad to hear that all is going well except for that migraine headache...is there anything u're taking for it?
Did you find out the sex of ur little bubba??? or u planning on keeping it a surprise?
Dearmum - Sounds ilke u have it all worked out the babies room...am sure once u get the paint DH will be more then pleased to get it painted...and again some great shopping again...YAY...its all happening.
I think i'll be getting those magnetic bracelet myself...if it helps with backpain and aches and blood circulation..Y not eh.
Meliko - Ur nursery sound so creative...so where did u get this idea from? can't wait to see the pics...
U'll obviously be keeping them all together in the same room i presume??
and so happy to hear that u'll be 27 wks on monday...:yelclap:
NM - Good on DS for building up his confidence and swimming to the instructor...u must be so proud to see him do that.
my3boys - How is ur back pain hun???
not long to go for work for both of us now...isn't that exciting.
AFM - Doing good...bubba on my right is kicking away down on my pelvis. I feel at times that his feet might just pop out of me. :laughing:
bless them little ones.
Am feeling ok...tired actually as had a late night...was DH's birthday so we went out for dinner...then just sat in bed chatting...showed him some pics of another bloggers triplets...he fell asleep watching that.
then i dozed off by 11pm...am sleepy today.
but feeling good...i guess u can say boring is good.
Well im off to go nuts again at the shops,i was never this excited with my other kids but these babies have been hard work so im going to spoil them and give them a nice room.Yep off to buy the paint hubby doesnt know about it:pand of course theres always more things to buy,im after teddie bear stickers so i can put them around i wonder if the paint shop sells them.I also want a nice baby light fitting for there room so if i have time im off there aswell.Im having a shopping day with my DD today coz i need to get DH something for our annaversary hmmm but what he has everything from being married to me for 21yrs:pyeh DDs hubby is on full time training for he gas job so my DD is bored so we will go out for lunch and spend all the guys monies:D
Hi Meliko.....Oooh that room sounds like its going to be beautiful and you must have a big room for all those boys its going to look fab once finished.Yeh i agree if we dont do things now we wont have time next time and its really hard even now to walk around the shops so yep better make the most of it hey.
Hi Bubbs....Sounds like you had a nice night.Yeh those braclets you will want to keep them forever coz there just so good i use to have aching knees and as soon as i used them after a day the pain was gone and now if i take it off after 2 days the pain comes back,so get yourself a nice one.
Hi NM....Enjoy watching your DS he is getting a very good swimmer now hey.What age did you start him at?
Ladies was wondering if any of you guys are going to get a nice photo of you and hubby while pregnant?im wanting that so im thinking i wonder if Myers do them,i want the half naked ones.
Well better be off :wave:
DM: Looks like you had fun shopping yesterday and will have fun today as well :laughing: And its fantastic that you were able to get a matching bear set for your little girl. I googled magnetic bracelets and it is not recommended for pregnant women (or people with pace makers for that matter). So it looks like I will just have to put up with my back ache until baby is born.
We will probably do a family photo at home. DH and I took some in our backyard when I was pregnant with DS. It was 2 days before I had him so was perfect timing. Bubba will have some professional piccies when he is 5 weeks old as we will most likely get his hands and feet moulded professionally like we did with DS. Its amazing to look at DS’s hands and feet from back then. They are so tiny!
Bubbs: I’m not quite 30 weeks yet. Will be by Tuesday next week. I am not nervous yet (will probably be when I am 5 weeks from due date though). More impatient to see bubba and hold him in my arms. You know I am also a self conscious person. But I just think that a pregnant belly, pregnant lady always looks beautiful. I love looking at my growing belly and am not afraid to show it off. Ok so I don’t show my bare belly to people (too self consious to do that) but love wearing maternity dresses and tops which show how big I am LOL!!!! Sounds like you had a nice relaxing time for your DH’s birthday :yes:
Heather: Glad that Tyler is growing spot on at the moment and doing well. I agree that the GD drink doesn’t taste bad, but mine just did not sit well in my belly and made me feel a little ill. Sorry you can’t have a water birth, but at least they will allow you to hop in the bath for pain relief during labor. The hospital that I am going to has 3 birthing baths, but the last time I heard, they weren’t being used as non of the midwives had been trained to look after water births :rolleyes:
Moarimama: you never know, your little boy could buck the trend and have a head full of hair this time round! I hope you do find a suitable remedy for your heartburn. Must not be so nice to have to deal with it day in and day out.
Ibb: Hopefully your dad’s memory loss is only short term and he will regain movement in his left arm as he recovers. Rest up darl. It has been an exhausting couple of weeks for you. Also try to keep off your feet as much as possible so that the swelling won’t get any worse. Flight socks will help as well :hugs:
Jojo: rug up during your time in Melbourne. The news shows that winds have been so destructive there so keep safe as well. Its great that your in laws will be helping you out with bubbas once they are born. One baby is hard work so I can’t imagine how 2 babies would be.
NM: I’m not quite 30 weeks yet….I will be come Tuesday though. It is nice to get pampered once in a while. I remember feeling so crap at the beginning of this pregnancy that just going out to get my hair done made me feel so much better. How clever is your DS being able to paddle over to the instructor already! He is definitely a water baby :yelclap:
Zoe: Nice to hear from you and glad that your pregnancy is going smoothly. I agree that feeling those kicks is the most amazing thing. I am sorry that you have been suffering from migranes. Is there anything that you can safely take to help them? Did you find out bubba’s gender when you had your morph scan or are you leaving it a surprise?
Meliko: I could help but laugh at your description of how useful you are! Your colour scheme does sound complex but I am sure the room will look stunning once you are finished with it. Cant wait to see a piccie of it once it all done up.
Ladies the most updated version that i have of the list is below. I have been getting a bit unreliable with keeping up with everyone's scan dates and posting the list so i think I will leave it up to each person to update scans etc when their dates become available from now on.
AFM: I saw some piccies of a friend’s new born baby yesterday. Made me very anxious to be able to see my little boy….I just can’t wait. I’m not quite at 30 weeks yet, but will be come Tuesday! Has anyone been getting blocked sinuses at night? I wake up with a stuffy nose with one side blocked…really annoying….My little boy has been doing some weird stretching this morning. Pushing right up against the right side of my uterus….very uncomfortable when he does that. Other than that he has had a quiet couple of days as I haven’t felt hi kicking much.

Bubbs - he loves the water so it was no trouble for him!
DM - I don't just watch i have to go in with him! We started him at 6mth old best thing i ever did, he isn't scared of the water and doesn't scream when he gets in, has water splashed on his face or when he goes under. I started with a friend at the time her kids were 9mths and 2yrs old all they did was scream and wouldn't go under water. If you have the time i would start as soon as you can, most swim schools start from 6mths
My3boyz - He sure is a water baby, i am the only parent in the pool who is just as wet as the kids that go under, he splashs and kicks from the minute he gets in. Although he can't do 2 things at once he either paddles or kicks. thanks for the reminder i really need to get my hair done as well!
Dearmum gee you have been a very productive mummy haven't you.....good on you hon...best to get it all out of the way so you can relax some before your twinnies arrive. Have fun at the shops today.
Meliko....I love the colours you are using in your nursery, can't wait to see pics.
Bubbs yep antenatal appt Monday....things are rather boring at my end although I'm not complaining after being in and out of hospital with my others I am lapping this pregnancy up. Hope you manage to catch up on some much needed sleep over the weekend.
My3boyz I think it's a good idea for us to update the rollcall.....I remember doing it for a thread and it's such a mammoth job trying to keep up with everyone. The last few mornings I have woken up quite congested so don't know whether it's the flu or not.
I don't know what was up with Kaizer yesterday but my he was extrememly active....all over the place. Maybe it was the block of choccie I ate that made him hyper :D.
My3boys - im glad you said that about your boy not moving so much the past couple of days, that happens to me all the time since I started feeling movements around 20 weeks, I thought it was just me. He'll be really active for 4 or 5 days and then I feel nothing for a couple of days - and no amount of poking and prodding will waken him up! Think he must just be laid back like his dad :yes:
Ibb - so sorry to hear your dad's had another stroke. I hope the memory loss is temporary and he makes a full recovery :hugs:
DM - I thought I could shop but I've got nothing on you :laughing: So glad your enjoying preparing for your gorgeous babies.
Meliko - Your nursery sounds lovely - I hope you post some pics when its done. I painted my nursery lemon when I was only 7 weeks because my DH won't touch a paint brush and I didn't want to leave it till when I was too big but now I kinda wish I had waited so I could've done it blue.
Sarbear - I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes smoothly - its bad enough you had a stressful time not helped by the witch you came across in emergency. Great news that the bleedings stopped and you bubs doing good.
Heather - hope your well, glad Tyler's getting big and strong.
Hope everyone else is well
dearmum- baby shopping is so exciting isnt it? I went to a baby shop looking at prams, just to get an idea, and hubby and I came home with a bassinet, a pram, an angel care monitor, a change table and a cot (for a little later) and a few cloths! I was shocked, but everything was reasonalbe and well, its good to get a discount when you buy from the same store! I was going to do it all later as I still have awhile to go, but its so exciting!!!
Everyone looks like they are going well. I cant read too much because the computer screen dazzles my eyes, so I just look at the key board. I only look up when I have to.
Some of you ladies are getting very close! :smiliedance:
Hubby and I were going to leave the sex as a surprize, but when the sonographer showed baby on the screen, it was very obvious of bubba's sex! THinking prehaps I was wrong and that it was the cord and the sonographer said no! So we are having a boy. Hubby and I were hoping for a girl, as hubby has 2 boys from previous marriage. I wanted a boy at some stage anyway, but I though it I have a girl first, then I have my girl and I know the next will be a boy anyway. Now that we are having a boy I wonder if I will ever get a girl. Boys out number girls 6 to 1 on my family's side and its pretty strong on hubby's side too, and he already has 2 of his own. Then yesterday he drops a bomb shell on me saying a clairvoyant told him years ago that any kids he had would all be boys. I am not at all disappointed that i am having a boy, just disappointed that I may never have a girl, because now the odds are looking a little slim. Given hubbys circumstances and our difficulty conceiving, we will be lucky if we have any more after this. But I do want to give my little boy a sister or a brother, so if anything ever happens to hubby and I he will have a sibling, and not be alone.
But after all that, can you believe it? I'm going to have a little boy! I have a son. Wow. That feels so surreal to say that!
I am so excited, but does anyone else here face having only one gender? As i said, I am not disappointed to have boys, just that I always wanted a little girl aswell. I would love to have both! I had already picked a girls name, it just came to me, it was so easy, but I can t think of a boys name. Im sure it will come to me as 20th January approaches.
A boy A boy A boy A boy A boy A boy A boy A boy:smiliedance::smiliedance::smiliedance:
NM: DS also likes to go swimming, and doesn't mind having water splashed on his face. But going completely under is another thing. He did trip on the weekend and dunked himself, but I don't want to scare him off too prematurely as we don't go swimming often enough for him to be completely at ease in the water yet. I think that you starting your DS off at 6 months was a good thing. He certainly is confident in the water which is what I would like DS to be in the future.
eve: It is completely normal for bubbas to have active days and days where they hardly move :yes: Maybe they go through growth spurts on days where we don't feel them much? I guess as long as you do feel them sometime during the day then it shouldn't be a concern.
Zoe: Congrats on having a little BOY! I can tell how excited you are from your post. As you can see from our list, girls seem to be outnumbered in this thread. There are only 3 girls and about 11 or 12 boys!
Like your DH, my DH's side is full of boys. Only a handful of girls. On my side, girls out number the boys, so hopefully i will get my girl on the next go (3rd time lucky hopefully). We already have a 2 year old DS and this one is also a boy this time round. But I am happy with another boy. Its weird but I always knew that I would have 2 boys followed by a girl (we will see if my intuition is right when we try for a third :laughing:).
Maorimama: I haven't minded updating the list to be honest, but I have been a little unreliable with posting it lately so I think it is much better for people to update scans etc as they go along. my bubba also has days where he goes ballistic with kicking LOL! But he has been quiet the last couple of days. Must be catching up on some zzzzzs
Thanks m3b . Maybe I will go back to my clairvoyant to see if I will ever have a girl. For those of you who dont know of my clairvoyant she has never been wrong. But maybe in the future.
How long after I have bubba can I do IVF again? I dont want to get pregnant straight away, but I would like some bubba's on ice for the future. We always get lots of eggs but most die on thawing. Are they the girls? Prehaps its only the boys who survive, maybe they are stronger??? So even if I have frosties there is no guarantee I will get one to use, or even if it takes. Thought I am confident all I need is another bout of acupuncture to get things going and me pregnant. I have heard of places where they can detect the male and female sperm, with what they say is a 100% accuracy rate. They know before they put the sperm and egg together, and you can do it through IVF. So thats the plan for next time. And if we are going to have another bubba boy, then thats what is ment to be. But I always believed if you wanted something so much, really really wanted it you will get it, so I am sure I will get my beautiful girl someday. I really really wanted to be pregnant and become a mum, but I was worried it would not happen for me, but here I am. Miriacles do happen.
I have noticed since being pregnant I have become very forgetful and keep having blanks. I am normally a good speller but I have noticed I am making lots of spelling mistakes and when I try to correct myself the right letters just dont come to me. I figure its all the hormones, so I try not to let it worry me.:goodvibes:
I first felt bubba boy at 15 weeks. It was so slight , it felt like bubbles in my tummy. I thought it was something else but it was in the right spot and a week later I got it again. Since then he has not stopped. At 17 weeks I felt some strong kicks and DH said he wished he could feel it. I said he couldnt at this stage, only I could feel them inside, it was still too early. Then they got stronger so I put my hand down low and to my suprize I could feel them with my hand! So DH put his hand there too and felt some kicks as well. I did have about 4 days where I didnt feel him at all, and I was really worried. But the scan yesterday confirmed everything is ay ok.
Sarbear- Sorry to hear that you had some hiccups. Sure is nice to see you here though!! I have to give it to you, you did so well in the begining when things didnt go so smoothly. Its hard for all of us ttc, but my heart really went out to you. Thanks for being an inspiration.
M3b- Can you put me on you roll call? Bubba is due 20th January. If he is 4 days early we will share a birthday! If he is 18 days late he will share his daddy's birthday. Well, I was 2 weeks over due when I was born. ( I am sure they will do something about it if its that late!)
Well off to the fridge, I am starving!
i hope everyone is good..
i cant wait to see photos of everyones nurserys.. they sound great... im doing a disney princess theme for a girl and mickey and friends for a boy!!! dh gets a month off at xmas so we can do it then... its so exciting!!!
my latest thing is waking at 2-4am and needing to pee:hissy:... once im up i get staaaaarving hungry then i get my lovely morning sickness:barf: see dh off to work then go back to bed and sleep:sleeping: at 6.30ish til about 10.30.... that was happened for last few days.... i hope i overcome this soon:fingerscrossed:
im only 9 1/2 weeks but im def getting a bump... after all the ivf i had a lovely little pot and now with bubs starting to grow i guess its starting to push out what was there.. my sister said to me today that its good im telling everyone in 2 1/2 weeks cos they will prob already know to look at me!!!
:smiliedance: yay i cant wait to have a big round belly!!! was anyone else showing early with their 1st baby? i know the 2nd baby makes you pop out early.. but this is my 1st...
also i think most of you found out the sex of your babies at 18-20 weeks... my sister found out at 16 weeks with both her babies... and im thinking i'll go see the same guy cos my parents are going to usa in my 17th week and they will buy so much for peanut that it'll be great if we know the sex... does anyone know about when you can find out?
to all you beautiful girls- thanks for all the lovely well wishes it truly has been so hard but id do it all over again for the chance to have my own baby... i just cant wait til i at least get to my 12 week(actually 13 week) scan so peanut is out of the worst bit... and i get off all the meds.. woo hoo...
MM - Yep i would say it was the chocolate, i had 3 tim tams when i got home from work the other night bubs was moving around like crazy kept me up until 1am
Zoe - Congratulations on your little boy, little boys are amazing so affectionate with there mummy's.. The stats show that through IVF your more likely to have a boy, ICSI is about half half.. I have one son and i think i this one is a boy as well. I hope you get your little girl one day
My3boyz - yeah no point in pushing DS if he doesn't like going under to much, we have swimming lessons every saturday morning and at the moment i am doing catch up lessons through the week i think i still have another 4 left, i didn't go swimming while i was taking my pesseries which is why i have so many. DS is so funny he learnt to blow bubbles in the water a couple of weeks ago and now puts his whole face in the water most of the time to blow bubbles
Sarbear - You poor thing i really hope your MS settles down really soon. I had a pot belly with when i was pregnant with DS due to IVF and OHSS but the growth of my belly was actually a little slow, this time around geesh
Just a quick one coz im going to have a snooze in a minute:sleeping:yeh the shopping has taken all my energy.
So just got home,yay bought my baby blue paint:yelclap:and teddy stickers mind you i had to go to a few shops to get the right ones.I bought a nice teddy bear poster :palso now i just need DH to get started.
I was also lucky and found a good annaversary present its a photo session with Myers so we can look back on our 21st as me being pregnant:D
Its booked in for two weeks time,i cant wait.
Well time for that snooze :wave:
Thought I would say Hi (my weekly post), I have been doing some training at work so no time for Internet or BubHub:(!
Congrats to Zoe on her little Boy! Wow this thread is getting lots of boys.....I think IVF produces loads more boys then girls...
Well hopefully this weekend I will find out the sex after the previous 4 attempts have failed.....:rolleyes:! I am having my 4D scan on Saturday, I just dont know anymore as to what the sex is, I thought boy at first then I changed my mind and now I just cant decide, but only 2 more sleeps to go, I have the first appointment of the day, I do hope pink in a way as DH really wants a girl...as I already have darling son.
Zoe - My FS/OB (mine does IVF and Obsterics) said to start trying naturally after 6 months for 6 months with the hope we may get lucky...but NO such luck, so we started back at IVF when DS was 12 months, Did a fresh cycle got 38 eggs, 20 ferterziled but only 6 may it to blasto, ended with OHSS so all 6 were frozen and I fell pregnant on the 4th FET and I am now almost 30 weeks, I did have to wait 6 to 12 months as I had a C-Section and OB thought it would be best to let my body heal and I was breast feeding also, so had to wait for AF to return which did around 7 months after DS birth.
I am kinda jealous as I want to go shopping too but as to not knowing the sex I feel it is pointless, look out if I am having a girl as I am think I might get very carried away, I will end up broke, there is such beautiful stuff for little girls, there is about 1/4 of the choice for boys......
Well only 7 weeks of work left and bubba will be here in 9 weeks arragghhh......:cloud9:
Hope everyone else is well and bubba are all active and kicking madly, mine always seems to wake at about 8:30 - 9pm each evening...
hello ladies ... just popping into say :wave: .. will catch up on the days events and do personals tomorrow .. hope you are all well ..
Just an update on how HUGE my belly is these days:p28 weeks!
DM - Your photo shoot sounds like a great idea.. Huni your belly is just gorgeous!
JRC - Your amazing finishing up 2 weeks before bubs! I hope bubs cooperates this time and reveals the gender. I'm waiting on finding out as well before we start shopping and decorating. Your right though IVF does produce more boys then girls
AFM - I didn't feel much movement yesterday but thanfully was dry retching this morning changing DS nappy sorry TMI.. We are off to playdays today a great little play centre DS and his little friends can run around and have a play. Still nothing happening though 7 more sleeps to go..
Actually one thing im peeved with yesterday i went to best and less bought DS 5 singlets just plain white ones 2 t shirts and 2 pairs of boardshorts it cost me $65 i was shocked clothes have gone up this year
Dearmum - Sounds like u have urself sorted there with paint and a bit of decoration...now u just need to sort ur DH out. :laughing: Love the belly shot. How many weeks are u now? ATleast it gives me a good indication of what I will be like around the same time...
Photo shoot as an anniversary present sounds awesum...will ur DH be up for it ??
My3boys - You must be so glad to reach 30 weeks on Tuesday. How exciting. I can't wait till i get to 30 weeks myself...9-10 more weeks to go.
and only 7 more weeks of work left. :smiliedance:
Maorimama - How is Kaizer?? Still very active?? Surely must have been the block of chocolate.
Zoe - Congrats on ur little boy. I am having twin boys through IVF. My ideal would have been boy/girl but am going to be blessed with 2 precious boys. Maybe in a few years time we might try again hoping fro a little princess :bee:
Sarbear - I got a bit of belly myself. I had a belly before IVF but at 9 weeks i showed too. I bet u can't wait to reach the 12 week mark...its such a big relief...time seems to fly fast once u reach 2nd trimester...it flew for me from 14 weeks onwards.
JCR710 - I hope u do get to find out the sex on sat. its been tough for u with ur bubba being so shy. :fingerscrossed:. Hope u get what u want...A precious little girl.
NM - I know clothes are really expensive. I checked out pumpkin patch last weekend and couldn't believe the prices for some of these clothes...but they're also so adorable. :cloud9:
Jojo - Hope ure enjoying melb. When is ur flite bak home?
Heather - How are u going hun?? Tyler keeping u entertained??
Kimmy - and u too hun...how are u going? How is that nursery?? Hope Dylan is also keeping u entertained.
AFM - Feeling fine, normal, no complaints...glad its friday...woohoo.
DH and i are planning to go to babies galore to have a look around at prams and other baby stuff...am excited...but we only have couple of hours as we have lunch at a friends place which I know will drag on till late afternoon...i don't like lunches on saturday as it puts ur whole shopping routine out of place.
But yes other then that feeling gooood...boring boring but a good boring.
Bubbas are enjoying their little football field. :laughing:
dearmum - gorgeous belly shot .. you look fantastic ... I can't remember, what Pram did you end up getting ??
hey bubbs .. Melbourne is Melbourne .. can't wait to get home .. flight out at 3:30 .. wooo hooo .. will be home with my DH by 6pm
NM - not long now ... going to be very exciting to see if you are right .. still 50/50 chance it is a girl :yes: our scans will be here before we know it ..
Zoe - congrats on your precious boy ... :yelclap:
JCR - hope your little cherub shares the big secret soon ... hopefully he/she will have no where to hide during the 4D scan and all will be revealed .. good luck .. do you have a preference for a boy or girl ?
a BIG :wave: to everyone else .. hope you have a fantastic Friday ... :smiliedance: the weekend is here !
AFM .. not much to report .. all good .. belly is slowly growing each day and I love it .. my shape is changing almost before my eyes .. waist almost gone .. I have worn big flowly shirts with a tightish black skirt all week .. and seem to be able to hide it - kinda - we haven't told my client yet .. a job for my next trip when it will be obvious ... work knows .. but I think most would guess I am pregnant .. funny that I should just put on weight in my belly and boobs .. :laughing:
Ok im having a rest today,but i still need to buy cotts & a changing table fairly soon coz once that room is painted i will want to see the whole thing put together i hate waiting:laughing:
Hi Bubbs....I will be 28 weeks on Monday so now i can google 29 weeks:p
Oh enjoy your baby shopping i reckon make the most of it coz hey were not pregnant everyday right so why not have fun.Having twinnies cost alot more though,and i have found its cheaper to get things from Kmart or ToysRus or something rather than the baby shops.
Ok we need a pic of your belly now hehe.
Hi NM.....:laughing:Yeh you dont get much with ya money hey,just aswell you went to best for less.I should be going to Bali in Feb,coz my SS is getting married over there so im going to buy lots of cute clothes over there for them.
Hi Jojo.....Gosh i missed out on your post about Melbourne,how was it?
Oh yeh i ended up getting a Valco twin stroller from ToysRus on special its nice and light and not so wide and best thing was it only cost me $220:Di have my bassinettes,car seats,pram,just need the cotts and changing table and im set.I had a look at Ikea last week an seen the cotts there for $179 i was amazed how cheap they were so im thinking i might go there on Saturday and grab 2.
Oh that other glucose test i have to have will be on Monday so i need to fast Sunday night.I still havent given up on my sugar or chocolate coz to me thats like giving up on drinking.
Hows everyone else today?
Zoe: I heard that it is recommended that you wait until your baby is at least 12 months before getting pregnant again. This is for any baby be it through IVF or natural. I think the reasoning is that your body needs to recouperate after a pregnancy as it takes a lot out of you.
sarbear: Welcome to the "pee during the night club!" :laughing: I've been waking up around 2 to 3 times during the night just to pee. With my first, I also was very bloated after doing a fresh cycle. I looked honestly about 5 months pregnant at the time and did pop out quite early as well. With this one I popped out early but am carrying smaller. Hope the ms dies down soon for you. I think most sonographers won't give you a definate answer in relation to sex of baby until your morph scan (18 to 20 wks). But mine thought he saw boy bits at our 12 week scan, but wouldn't confirm it until we saw him at 19 weeks. He was right too! We are having a boy.
NM: oh yum tim tams...... that will be one item on my desert list once this baby is born....It is a real bummer not being able to eat chocolate! Yes best and less is a bit pricey at the moment. We also went last night and bought DS some singlets and a few other things and it came up to $70!
dearmum: Looks like it is full steam ahead for the twins' nursery. Now you just have to get your DH to paint and put everything together :thumbsup: Love those belly shots as well. you look fabulous!!!
JCR: Hope your bubba cooperates this time round so you can tell what gender you are having. If bubba is still shy then I guess you can buy all neutral colours and then go on a shopping spree once bubba is born. Like your DH, mine really, really wanted a girl as well as we already have a DS. But it was not to be this time round.
Bubbs: Yes I can't wait to finish off at work. Will see how I go when October comes along. I may try to get off 1 week earlier as I realised that I will only have 3 weeks before due date if I finish off on the 16th. Have fun shopping at babies galore, however, from experience they are a lot more expensive than other baby shops that I have been to. Perhaps good to look at what model pram etc you want and then go else where to buy it.
jojo: Hey darl. How's work down in melbourne? you must be glad to be heading back home since Melbourne weather has been awful this week.
Crystar: Haven't heard from you in a while. Hope pregnancy is going well. Have fun seeing your bubba at your morph scan today and please let us know how it goes if you can :)
AFM: Nothing to report on this side. We went shopping last night and I bought a few maternity things and some things for DH and DS. Lets just say that MIL has said that next time we go late night shopping to have her and DS stay at home. He was honestly running loose and wanted to get away from us LOL! He loves being out and about, although i can't really blame him as he is at home most of the time as MIL doesn't have a car and we don't live near any parks that they can go to.
P.S. I will post the list in a separate post so it is easier for people to go back and find it and update it themselves :yes:

Well i have today and Monday off and DH is away in Euchuca at a wedding we were both meant to go to. Changed my mind as he can't fly (his eardrum will burst) and i couldn't stand the thought of a 10 hour drive! He's actually going by XPT and Coach and i'm missing him already!!
I'm off to get a manicure and pedicure very soon which i am so looking forward to and than will go visit dad who i'm happy to say seems to be improving.
DM - Your belly is wonderful. No stretchies i could see and it's so beautifully round. Bubbs, yep you know what you'll look like soon.
Jcr I do hope you bubby lets you see its bits today. I think with only 9 weeks to go i might have given up and just decided to go with a surprise at this point but you are so right. It is so hard to buy neutral and i have loved buying pink and purple.
Zoe - Congrats on your boy. Wow they are beating the girls on this thread.
NM - $65 at Best and less. I thought they were so much cheaper there. I'm off to do some shopping for me at pumpkin patch hoping there are some specials but no doubt have to spend some $$ too. How many sleeps til your gender scan now!!
Well i will catch up on more personals later, better get ready for my apmt. I'm starting to leak again just typing this. I have now had to start wearing breast pads during the day which i am so not happy about. Still only my right boob. Last night i was sitting on the bath talking to DH watching him shave and i started leaking bigtime. There is no warning. I had just changed too out of my bra into my pjs so another top to be washed. Grrrr Meanwhile bubs is kicking away. Yesterday she got in a weird spot and rolled and it felt like i was on a lift that went down way too fast. I actually felt sick!:laughing:
Dearmum glad to hear you have your paint and can get DH started on decorating the nursery....can't wait to see it finished.
Zoe congrats on having a son....boys are soooooo adorable and alot closer to their mummies....well mind are. We are having our 4th son and have 1 daughter so I think the odds are in favour of boys with us.
Sarbear you are sounding in a better frame of mind....sure hope that ms eases soon. The night time trips to the loo are so annoying aren't they...on average I am up 5x a night sometimes more :eek:.
JCR we too want to have another after this bub but I don't normally get AF until after their lst b'day so I think for us the timing will be just right.
Bubbs have you tried ebay for pumpkin patch clothing? I have brought some brand new items off their for Kaizer at a fraction of the price....love, love, love PP it's such good quality.
NM I too agree that Best n Less is getting pricey....we got a few things there for DS7 and DD on the weekend....singlets, undies, socks and it come to just over $100. Not long now till you know what bub is :smiliedance:.
Weather not very nice here in Perth today....only 15 degrees - yikes!! Not alot planned for the weekend......maybe some more shopping :p
bubbs - I bought DS alot of pumpkin patch clothes for DS in the smaller sizes 0000-00 i didn't pay full price for anything actually i don't think i paid full price for many of his clothes mainly his 0-1 maybe that's why i am finding clothes so expensive atm
Jojo - Yeah i know i can't wait to see if i am right, either way i am going to be excited. It will be interesting to see if the IVF stats are right!
DM - Best and less and pretty much the only place to buy decent boys clothes! Good luck with your test on Monday
My3boyz - It's so expensive isn't it but what are you going to do the kids need clothes.. 7 more sleeps to go!
MM - I'm so jealous of all this baby shopping!
thanks to these tickers being off my 17wks today YAY 7 more sleeps to go and i will stop annoying you all about bubs gender.
Well i am feeling chirpy today. Saw dad today. He looks and sounds fantastic. The occupational health worker was there for 2 hours and ran him through tests. He did really well on them all except he has something called desprasia (sp) apparently his visual brain mapping is damaged so if you give him a task like put your hands out in front and clasp them together, he can do it but only after he has to think the whole process through and do it bit by bit. It can take a minute. Same as if you get him to put his thumb out, he has to think about his thumb first. He also cannot do abstract thinking, meaning look at a picture and put tiles with colour in the order they're meant to go. A big shock for him and he got upset but the occ guy says its early days and with rehab hopefully it will get better. He will be tested again on Monday to see if there is any improvement. His arm is still pretty stuffed. He can move it up a little but not above say 30cm off the bed and can't bend it and its very weak as is his left side. I'm so happy though as it could have been heaps worse.
Had my manicure and pedicure and went shopping at Pumpkin patch for me. Got some 3/4 pants and 2 tops for just over $120 so happy with that.
NM -7 more sleeps
Maori - Hope it doesn't get too much colder for you. We had the nicest day here. Sunshine and heat. Mmmn Lovely!
I am seriously thinking about doing another 4d scan, this time we'll pay for it as the last one was a freebie that came with the morph scan. When do you think is the best time to get one so it will be clear and i can double check the sex LOL
Ibb.....Babe good to hear your dad is going ok,remember as time goes by he will improve alot coz my mum did time heals alot of things they say.
Sounds like you had a good day getting spoilt :Dgood on ya.Hmmm i have never had a 4d scan but i can imagine it being the best,they say around 25 weeks is a good time.
Well ladies here i am worried again:(
I had been googling and as you know my babies are in transverse position (laying accross ways)anyway they said it can be dangerous because the cord can prolapse because theres nothing there to stop the cord from falling out:eek:and it says if you go into labour go ASAP to hospital.OMG i keep having these scary thoughts of what if no one is around to take me to hospital,yeh i dont feel good now coz what "IF" i went all this way and something goes wrong:crying:
Maybe i should have waited to buy everything.
DM - try not to worry and dont forget you have that stich in that should stop you going into full on labour. Im sure you will feel the early signs and have plenty of time to get to the hospital.
What is happening with your glucose tests? is that AOK?
DM - try not to worry and dont forget you have that stich in that should stop you going into full on labour. Im sure you will feel the early signs and have plenty of time to get to the hospital.
What is happening with your glucose tests? is that AOK?
Yeh im driving myself nuts tonight:no:i have been wanting to tell my hubby about this but i know he will worry about it all like me.
Im having my glucose test on Monday so hopefully on Tuesday i will get some results,the test will take 2.5hrs and i will need 3 x BTs.The funny thing is though on Sunday night im suppose to fast from 9pm but its my birthday and im taking all the family out for dinner and gosh looks like im going to have to miss out on my birthday cake.
Hows your little buba? when is your next scan?
sorry just a quick one girls!! Thanks sooooo much for all your kind words on the nursery, yep it looks awesome, will be finnished tomorrow so i will try and post some pics tomorrow!
Dearmum- OMG!!!! Your belly is so much bigger than mine!! My belly button has not even poped out!! I am so jelous lol. I am 7 days behind you but because I have 3 on board I thought I would have been a bit bigger or about the same..... nope bump is not that big.... dont get me wrong its big tho. Your belly is AWESOME!!! Darlin if your dr's where concerned about your babies well being they would tell you. I know its impossible not to google, I do it too, but allot of it is worst case sanario. I used to google heaps of stuff on triplets and it scared the ***t out of me, most of the stuff was negative and focusing on all the risks..... I have had a text book pregnancy with these 3! (Well as text book as triplets get lol) and had no issues at all, but google terrified me. Ask your OB honey, they will tell you the real risks. I know its impossible not to worrie tho huni. I am excited to say however that my worrying has left the building and I am now just excited to be soon a mummy to 3 boys!!!! Thinking of you hun
DM- So long as you know to keep an eye out for it and don't pull if the cord does start to show. Do you have neighbours to help you? Or just call an ambulance or taxi asap as high priority. I am sure it will all be fine.
Well i'm not happy today. Babyco where my cot and chest of drawers/change table is on layby has gone into voluntary administration! Mum got a call yesterday on the quiet from the manager advising her and paid the balance which was only about $500 and apparently there is an arrangement with storage with another store in the complex but i can't get hold of anyone to confirm this so they have my furniture and money. I don't need this extra stress. Cross fingers i can get some answers asap. I have my uncle's girlfriend's van lined up to go and pick it all up, i just have to find out where they put it. Grrrr:hissy:
good morning to you lovely ladies ..
Meliko - hello sweets ... glad to hear all is well with you, can not wait to see your nursery ... I bet it is a baby boys dream ! When is your next scan to check on those growing boys ?
DearMum - :hugs: you have worried enough ... no more .. stay away from google .. like Meliko said, it focuses on all the things that can go wrong and not the positive side ... how did you manage to get that gorgeous belly without any stretch marks ? What miracle cream are you using ..
ibb - that is fantastic that you are seeing improvements in your Dad .. I hope they continue and he is home very soon .. nice work on the mani and pedi ... nothing more relaxing that having a good pedi ... and you end up with such pretty feet at the end of it :yes:
Mrs Mermaid - hows things with you precious ?
Noahs Mum - count down is on hon .. not long now til we know ... was yours a fresh or frozen ? I read that you have a greater chance of girls with a fresh .. girls apparently dont like the freeze and thaw so much (see, we are fussy even at a young age) .. we dont care .. my gut tells me two boys, my DH thinks two girls but ideally one of each is our preference .. so 9 sleeps till the mystery is solved ..
my3boyz - you are right, Melbourne weather was not very nice last week .. windy and cold .. cars in trees !!! Work all done and now back home where I belong on the sunny Sunshine Coast .. the weather difference stepping off the plan was amazing ... compared to Melbourne, Qld was like landing in Asia .. :laughing:
hello MMama - shopping sounds like a nice way to spend the weekend, might to a touch of that myself ..
hello to everyone else ... hope you are having a great weekend ...
AFM .. nothing to report .. belly slowly growing .. worried about stretch marks but applying my bio oil morning and night .. they say look at your mother to determine whether you are at risk .. lets just say that places me HIGH risk :crying: but what will be will be ... I think I can feel subtle movements but not entirely sure ... going to have brekky with my DH now .. down by the river .. he is out fishing on this glorious Qld day ..
Thanks i am feeling less stressed today i figure if something were to happen its meant to be so i will leave these bubbas in gods hands.
Yay today im soooo hoping my hubby will start painting the nursery:fingerscrossed:he is still in bed so i will ask him later.I dont know about you ladies but my mind is on babies 24/7 i really feel guilty for my youngest DD coz she was the baby.She hates me being on the bubhub coz it means my time is taken away for hrs:laughing:so once bubbas are born im going to limit my posting to once a week i think.
Hi Meliko....Hun thanks i know the googling cant be good when all ya tend to think of is what could go wrong,so im going to stay away from that site now.
:laughing:SOooo ya think my belly is way bigger than yours:detective:well let me see yours.....
Hi Bubbs....Hmmm sounds like your in a perfect spot there.Well as for the stretch marks i think i just have good skin,when i first fell pregnant 20yrs ago there wasnt much around for this so my mum told me to use olive oil so i did and was lucky only to get a few on my boobs.Come my second third and fourth bub i got lazy and didnt use anything and still no problem,over the yrs though my weight has gone up and up so i have a few on my thighs.With this twinnie pregnancy i thought oh im bound to get them but so far so good,i am lazy and only use palmers for stretch marks when i think about it.Come my age you dont really care anymore LOL.
Enjoy your weekend
Hi Ibb....OMG how annoying and sad! i had the same thing happen to us a few yrs ago we had bought all new kids beds and dinning table ect ect anyway we had paid the whole amount off but we just wanted to keep them at the store because we didnt need then straight away,anyway oneday we drove past and noticed the shop was closed down we freaked out and was very angry coz we wanted our funiture.At the end they went bankrupt and we got nothing im still mad about that.
Good luck i really hope they can do some deal with you coz its just not fair.
Hows everyone else today?
Ahhh dont ya just love weekends
Ibb - Glad to hear your feeling much better, yay for a little pampering for yourself.. I know here they prefer you to be about 30wks to have the 4D scan done. I go for just a gender scan which is just like a normal ultrasound at 25wks to confirm bubs gender. Is there any news on your baby furniture?
DM - STAY AWAY FROM GOOGLE! If your Drs were concerned then there would be somethign to worry about. Hun try and relax and enjoy your pregnancy i know it can be hard and the worry never ends.. That's even if you have the time to get on here once your bubba's are born. Maybe set aside some special time just you and DD now and continue it on once the babies have arrived
Jojo - Yeah i know can't half tell i'm a little over excited! I had a frostie put back in this time the first one made it through. I had a feeling DS was a boy and he was, i guess the reason i think this is another boy is i remember what i was like as a kid and i wouldn't want antoher me! LOL 6 more sleeps with me.. As for stretchies i was very lucky with DS only got them on my hips 2 on each and got some more under my belly at 35wks they have gone now but i'm sure they will return. Also it's mainly girls you get the really bad stretch marks with big lines up your belly, boys are a little kinder
AFM i will be less annoying in 6 more sleeps once no more count down.. DS had swimming lessons this morning the little bugger splashed water in my ear and i still can't get it out it's driving me crazy!
He started :smiliedance:yep im liking the colour already:yelclap:
Well I had my 4D scan today and all was perfect, was in a great position and got some fantastic shots, I will try and post some of them later...
And yes yes yes we found out the sex finally.....
Ummm, I wonder what it is?
Its a ?????:laughing:
Hmmm im guessing a GIRLam i right????????:laughing:
I think I have left you in suspense long enough now...:p!
YES its a :flowerz: GIRL :flowerz: no doubt about it! DH and I are so exicited and on :cloud9:, I must admit I did still think it was another boy, but the sonographer had a really good view and was 100% certain, and from what I could see and tell I had to agree.
So DH and I went out shopping and brought some PINK outfits......wow there is so much choice for girl, spoilt for choice I say.
Woohoo JCR - Another girl!!! Congratulations! We needed that, too many boys appearing here LOL
Yes i worked out where my stuff was being stored and thankfully it is now safe in my uncle's fiance;s garage til we make room for it. Some people were not so lucky though according to this store. Apparently the girls tried to contact everyone who had stuff stored or on layby but couldn't get hold of everyone and left messages but if they weren't paid, they couldn't do anything. The store was closed today and i watched so many people freak out while i was waiting for my stuff. I felt so sorry for them.
The only thing i didn't get is the mattress for the change table part which i figured i could always get later but now i have to get the measurements and try my best to get the right size. Oh well considering what could have happened, i'm not too fussed about it.
Dad is going well. Had another CT today to check for more clots - in the lungs this time.Today though we noticed bigtime his short term memory is quite bad/affected. He asked me 4 times in the space of an hour who was visiting him tomorrow and in the end i started writing down notes for him. Early days yet. Hopefully he will be better tomorrow.
JCR - Congratulations on your little girl! How exciting!
Ibb - thats great news you were able to get all your furniture! I hope your dad is better today!
Nothing happening here.. 5 more sleeps
dearmum glad to hear the nursery is underway with the painting and u like the colour.
i hope your twinnies are just fine and u are just a worrier like me.
i too google sometimes which is bad, dh hates it and says he will ban me from the internet:laughing:.
i googled premature babies and watched a youtube video and it made me cry.
oh i forgot to say how nice and big your belly is looking!
ibb sorry to hear of the dilemma with babyco i hope all your stuff is now safe.
best wishes for your dad.
how is that little girl of yours going?
jcr congratulations on your little princess. i was also going to guess girl. have fun shopping, girls have so much more stuff to choose from than boys.
noahsmum hope u got that water out of your ear. glad to hear your ds is enjoying the water.
only a few more sleeps to go now for your scan.

my3boyz hope u got some cool stuff shopping.
how nice of your mil to offer to babysit so ds doesnt run a muck next time.
hope your pregnancy is still boring.
bubbs i had to laugh at your lunch interrupting your shopping comment.
did u enjoy your lunch? and did you get anything for the babies?
hello to everyone else i hope you and your babies are well and you are enjoying the weekend.
afm not much happening here, tyler is getting more active by the day i reckon. i think he sleeps less and less(hope this is not a sign of things to come once he is born).
i was getting leg cramps in the middle of the nite/morning whilst asleep but have started drinkig indian tonic water and i havent had any cramping since.
i shaved my downstairs region last week and it was quite hard getting around my bump haha. probably was the last time i will be able to do it. still have to do my legs again that should be a laugh.
dh is at work today so i get to be bored at home yay. we had a few bills this week and it was my pay week not his(he earns more than me) so we dont have any spending money for me to go out and spend. next week we dont have many bills just rent and groceries and petrol so i am getting my photo frame that i want for my birthday(dh borrowed $100 of my birthday money).
i am cooking roast beef and veg later yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy.
only 6 more days until we get our 3d/4d scan of tyler yay cant wait. will give one of the photos to dad for fathers day with his present.
does anyone else have a sore stomach? when i wake up in the morning my stomach is aching i guess cos it is getting bigger. it goes away during the day.
this is tyler's nursery, as we are renting we cant paint walls or change curtains etc.
:laughing:JCR.....I guessed right:Di was thinking girl coz each time iv had a girl the docs have been umming and aring hehe.Babe Congrats on having a girl she is going to be your little princess.Yep i would be the same i would be going out and buying all the pretty pink clothes.
Hi Heather....Oh your nursery looks good and you have finished,atleast your ready now hey.I have only got as far as the walls :laughing:
Hmmm sore stomach well if i have been sleeping a bit to much on my belly it will hurt so i usally move during the night.Babe having a 4D scan made for fathers day is a good idea.Well enjoy yourself at home i always love the house to myself but only ever get it for a few hrs.
Hi NM.....Awww 5 more sleeps and you can put your mind at rest:Dthats how i felt with the scan it was such a countdown.
Hi Ibb....Yay so happy to hear you were able to get your furniture,yeh its sad to see others miss out.

Hows everyone today?
Well happy that our nursery finally got painted and to think i didnt even have to nag hubby was such a shock LOL.My next goal is to get those cotts from Ikea.
Well its my Birthday today :pi had a txt sms from my oldest son at 2.30 am bless him.We are off to sizzler tonight so everyone can chose what they want.I have to remind myself not to get into the dessert section to much coz come Monday morning im having my diabettes test:eek:did i tell ya all it takes 2.5hrs this test and 3x BTs gosh not looking forward to it.
Well everyone is in bed so here i am just waiting for my pressies hehe.
just walked the dog and then shaved my legs and had a shower.
wasnt too bad shaving my legs, thought it was going to be worse.
dearmum best wishes for your glucose test mine is on tuesday 8/9 but i have had one before. they are really boring waiting for the second bt then third bt. luckily it is dh's day off work that day so he will be with me to keep me company and also to drive me incase i feel a little off from not eating for 10 or so hours.

NM- 5 more sleeps!!! I bet you cant wait!!! gee thats hone sooooo quick hun!!! its awesome!
NFM- Well the nursery is almost finnished.... gee it was time consuming, 3 full days of painitng!! The room isnt overly huge, just conplicated painting!. We have got a massive room with a ensuite which they will get when they are a bit older, but its far to big yet. I am excited! I will post pics tomorrow once finnished!
Heather - I'm just a little over excited! Tyler's room looks awesome! Shaving sure is hard. I shaved down stairs the night before i went in for my c section OMG it was the hardest thing i have done while pregnant!

Meliko - You can't half tell i'm a little over excited hey! I can't wait to see photo's of your nursery.
wishing you a very happy birthday dearmum.
enjoy the rest of the day.:party:
Have not been on here for a day or so. Got another migrane. Well, it wasnt really a migrane. Doctors refer to it as 'a migrane without the headache' Im sure there is a scientific name for it, but thats what they refer to me as. Its basicly all the migrane symptoms, nausea, tunnel vision, vomiting, sensitive to light and sound ect. Just no head pain. I have to go a lay down straight away in a dark room, no light no sound. I used to take panadeine forte for it, but now am only allowed panadol. If I sleep it off it will go away, if I dont the head pain kicks in. Most of the time my eyes play up. Its like as if I have been staring into bright lights, and I get the 'stars' in my eyes. Its the first thing I notice, when I look at someone and can only see half their face! Only had 2 in the space of 10 days this time, so hopefully they are subsiding.:fingerscrossed:
Dearmum-happybirthday!!! Hope you have agreat day. Maybe you can save some cake for later? What sort of cake is it? I love donut cakes. But in the last 5 years I have not been able to find someone to make them. They used to be popular in Bendigo years ago. Oh well, my taste buds have changed since I last had one, maybe I wont like them anymore!
The nursery sounds like it coming along great. Love to see it.
JCR- Congratulations. Thats fabulous news! You must be over the moon! Have fun with the shopping. Girls clothes just seem to be so much more...appealing? Oh how cute!
ibb- Sounds like things are going well for your Dad. I know it can be hard, but its a tough road ahead. But there is progress and with your support it will make things that much easier.
Well everyone seems to be doing so well with their nursery's. The only one I have seen is heatherm's. Looks great. I always wanted to set up a nursery. We are in the middle of moving, a big shift. I wanted to be at the new place when bubba is born, but then decided I should stay in a familiar house to adapt to being a mum. So the spare room will be baby's room, and since we will be moving shortly after, there is no point in painting or anything.
We bought a bigger property and fell in love with it. Then I felt it wasnt 'home'. Maybe its just cold feet? Im not real good with change in my surroundings. We will be building, but decided there is no point in building our dream home if we are likely to move again. So we decided to stay in the shed for 12 months to decide. Hubby has lined out the living section with plaster and thick insulation, and with a toilet, shower, kitchen and laundry it will be just like a house, but still no point in decking that out as a nursery either. And if we do build, bubba will be 12-18 months by then, so ho hum, I dont think I will be doing a nursery!
So what are these glucose tests? I have not heard of them before. Are they standard procedure? Why do you have them done?
Well I think I have babbled on enough. Things to do!
Good luck all the blooming bellies!
Zoe the glucose test is standard for all expectant mums and is done around the 28th wk mark.
Ibb so glad to hear your dad is doing well....hope his condition continues to improve. I read that the 4d scans are best done between 26-32 wks...I want to get one done too for my children to come and see. Glad to hear you got your nursery furniture.
Dearmum happybirthdayhon and happy anniversary to you and DH. Have a great time at dinner tonight. STOP googling....it will only make you worry and as everyone else has said if your Dr was at all concerned they would express that to you. See you tomorrow.
Jojo my mum has no stretch marks and she has had 6 children including twins....I got very few in my last four pregnancies and what I do have is well below my belly button and my sisters have got stretch marks from here to timbuktu. One of my sisters stretched so badly that she has all this loose excess skin now. I really think it's the luck of the draw where stretch marks are concerned. My dad's mum had 13 children and got none either....lucky thing.
JCR I was thinking it was a girl with you teasing us like that. So happy for you...congrats. Shopping for girls is so much easier as there is alot more to choose from.
Heather your nursery looks great....you are soooo organised.
Meliko can't wait to see your wee boys nursery...bet that is looking fab.
Well not much happening here....just been on a cleaning frenzy this weekend...so much for a trip to the shops. Have our antenatal appt tomorrow so will update you all after that.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
Great nursery pics! We are renting too so not able to do to much and not sure if we are staying put or moving. The only thing we have set up is the cradle but now we had to get the cot and drawers out early, we will probably set it up soon. I got the same chair too only in the bone colour. Bonus with the footstool coming with it!
As for sore tummy - Mine hurts if i move the wrong way and i get groin pain but i was thinking maybe the baby is sitting in the wrong spot?
I am so pleased i have tomorrow off. I am exhausted. Saw dad and took a friend with me and my pop and his brother went too and i think it wore him out. He was a bit agitated. The hospital food sucks so he hasn't been eating so mum had enough and is taking him thai tonight! Its his favourite though he can't have the coconut cream of course.
DH comes home tonight. Picking him up from the station at 9.30. He apparently has had about 3 hours sleep as they went drinking after the wedding and than he was up at 7am today. Poor thing. Oh well self inflicted, not much sympathy out of me LOL
Hope you are all well. I will catch up properly with whats going on soon.
Well still getting ready to head off to sizzler,
i have been spending the day looking back at my kids when they were small gosh its sad to see them all grown up.
My DH ended up getting me a picture frame with one of our annaversary photos in it from yrs ago:rolleyes:now i think about it im kinda sad coz i feel like i deserve more than that,god us ladies love everything surely he could have thought more into it.My youngest DD got me a glass poem for mums and a cute teddy bear & chocies so thats ok coming from her.I gave my photo frame to DH but atleast i had a voucher in it:phe wasnt to keen about a half naked photo but oh well.
Must go still in my towel.
Zoe - You poor thing i hope you have seen the last of these mirgrains, i had one last week and i have been getting alot of headaches lately as well they are not fun when you can only take panadol. With your new place it sounds like cold feet moving into a new place and bringing a baby home at the same time can be very scary. Your doing what your comfortable with though give it time!
Ibb - I hope you take some time out today to relax
DM - I hope you had a great dinner last night, it's a shame about the pressie from DH, my DH and i don't do pressies we decided from our first anniversary unless its a special one we go out for dinner and buy each other cards. It was sweet of your daughter to get you something.
Nothing new to report here, i'm in the final week of my count down though 4 more sleeps to go, and i will stop annoying you all with it
Hi Ladies :wave:
Dearmum - happybirthday Hun...I hope you enjoyed ur dinner at Sizzerlers...and kept away from that dessert. Goodluck with ur test today...hope it all goes well.
Sorry to hear that you weren't too impressed with ur pressies. I know we ladies put so much thought into our presents...agree agree agree.
And also pls make sure u stop googling and stressing urself out...its just not worth it hun...try to enjoy ur pregnancy...29 weeks for u this week. YAYYY.
JCR - Yayyyyy a girl for u...finally u got to find out. I bet u cant' wait to start the shopping...there are some gorgeous girly stuff around. U'll have a ball.
Ibb - Must be relieved to get ur furniture...so whats the story with baby co??
Hope ur dads on the mend. Maybe u can cook ur dad something that he enjoys and take it in for him to eat...He's like that am sure. Home made food is always a nice treat in hospital. Just be aware of his dietary requirements thats all.
Heather - Yup i wake up wtih sore lower belly...not every day but days here and there. I think its stretching and weight combined. I bet u can't wait for ur scan...how exciting.
As for ur nursery...we're looking at dark wood ourselve...similar to yours...can't wait.
Meliko - Glad to hear u're doing well. I bet the room looks gorgeous...and from what u're describing, its bound to take time just getting the right painting done. :p
How long to go for u hun???
Maorimama - Hope ur appointment today goes well hun.
Jojo - How are u going hun...feeling good i hope. U probably are feeling little flutters...buit its really hard to tell.
Hi to anyone else I might have missed.
AFM - Had a lovely weekend...saturday went to babies r us to check out some prams and baby stuff to give DH an idea of what we're in store for...enjoyed it actually...can't wait to get into the shopping frenzy. We've been given advice to shop around for prams and stuff...The lady there told us that the Maclaren brand was really good but they only had the Valco and maclaren but not all the models...so shes gave us the advice to look around at all other baby store and then decide from there. We are in no rush to buy but it was great to get an idea.
I've also decided on the baby bjorn active carrier...Dh tried it and was pretty comfortable with it. We surely want to get one so its easier to move around when shopping or what not...and having one in the pram...makes it easier.
Anyway then just busy with lunches and visiting friends...weekend just tends to go fast.
I have been awake on and off since 2.30am so am feeling a little irritated...and i guess its monday too.
Bubbas are both moving alot...i saw my tummy move for the first time on saturday and it was just awesum. I had to keep starring at it but it was just an amazing feeling...much more stronger kicks and movements. :smiliedance: :cloud9:
I want DH to start feeling it too but he needs to be wait...it doesn't happen constantly...but just a jerky movement...
Not much else...just waiting for my next appointment on 11th Sept with obstetrician...
Dearmum - Sorry i meant to wish you happybirthday yesterday. I hope you ended up having a great dinner out. As for pressies, try not to get too upset, my hubby has thought he was getting me the most brilliant gift over and over and 1 year bought me a sewing machine, the next present was a special sewing basket. The thing is i hate sewing!
I have no interest whatsoever and never have even though my mum and grandma made most of my clothes, dancing, school etc. I alsways get mum to do my mending or pay for it so i was so upset that he did that. That was years ago now and i still have them. Have used the machine maybe 3 times LOL
Bubbs - We got the baby bjorn active carrier too. Since we're having a summer baby, it breathes easier too and its all for DH so the back support was a bonus. I think its good for them to have their own little thing.
A for kicking, DH sometimes goes to bed with me and we just lie there with his hand on my belly as my bubby just kicks away the moment i lie down so its a given.
Anyway have today off. Picked up DH from the station last night and we both went straight to bed where he still is. I have physio in 45 mins so have to take a shower and get ready.
Hope you all have a good day.
Thanks for the birthday wishes it means alot to me:hugs:
I did have a good night out i always enjoy having all my kids together with me,i tried my best to stay away from the dessert section but i got sucked up there and had some apple pie and cream:poh well.
Hmmm as for my DH pressie well,last yr it was our big "20th" and i laways joked to him i want to $20000 dollar ring for putting up with him for 20 yrs anyway i had my hopes up and even got a diamond ring ready for him and guess what he bought me???? and BL**DY candle yeh farout what a let down:rolleyes:so this yr a frame was bit of improvement i guess,but its just not like him.Next yr i will get him a lollie pop with a bow on it or something:laughing:
Well have to hurry and get ready for my GTT test at 9am EEK.
Dearmum Happy Belated Birthday for yesterday happybirthday! Hope you had a great time at Sizzler, not a great time to go with the GD test today. I also had the long GD test, didnt even bother with the short GD this time as I had diabetes with DS but diet controlled luckly dont think I could have coped with more daily injections! But this time my sugar levels were great according to my OB in the mid range of normal. So I was very happy with that, just anaemic this time and low B12 levels, but taking supplements to try and combat it.
IBB and Bubs - you will love your Baby Bjorn they are the best, I didnt want to get one but after a week of carry DS we went and got one and its the one thing I recommend to definately purchase, even a 2 nd hand one off Ebay.
Thanks for all your well wishes on a our little girl...DH and I are thinking of calling her Ruby, where 99% sure. I had a lovely day out shopping yesterday by myself, DH offered to look after DS and take him to the park so i could have some me time, and I did, went and got a Pedicure and my feet looked so good, I brought some new shoes - black sandels all ready for summer, well spring first. I also brought some clothes for Ruby I couldn't help myself, I am trying not to get to carried away, there is just so much to choose from, She is going to be one best dressefd little girl, I got some outfits from Esprit on sale and even better they had a further 25% off so I got 2xshorts, 1xtights, 2xT-Shirts all for $30.00 bargin I say. They are so tiny, you forget that they can be that small when DS is now wearing a size 3:eek: and to think 2 years ago he was 0000.
Well I better go and do some work:(....I am already in go slow mode getting ready to wind down to go on Mat Leave.
Bubbs - yeah it definately pays to shop around especially when you know what you want. The baby bjorn carriers are fantastic. It sure is amazing when you see your bubba's move! When DS first started kicking so i could feel it, everytime i would yell out DHs name DS would stop moving so when i just casually said hey he would come over and finally was able to feel DS.. Cheeky little bugger
Ibb - Enjoy your day off work today!
DM - Good luck with your GD test today! LOL good idea for a pressie for DH next year!
JCR - I love the name Ruby! That was nice of DH to take DS so you could have time to yourself! You sure did pick up alot of bargins yesterday!
I am so naughty i polished off a block of rolo chocolate saturday night/sunday and bought another block in todays shopping eeekkkk
Wow there's been a lot of chatter over the weekend :yes: Lots for me to catch up on.
Maorimama: Hope your appointment goes well today. Does your doc have a scan machine? If so then have fun seeing bubba as well.
Ibb: So glad to hear that your dad is on the mend and that occ health guy was happy with your dad’s test results. Hopefully is short term memory will improve with time. I am so glad that you were able to get your things from Babyco. What an awful few days of worrying for you.
Dearmum: happybirthday belated birthday for yesterday. It is always wonderful to have family around for your birthday. Sorry you were disappointed with your birthday gift from your DH. Good luck with the GD test. Hopefully it comes back all clear. Also great to hear that the nursery is finally underway.
Jojo: I have been using the palmers moisteriser for stretch marks on a daily basis to stop myself form getting stretch marks. I rub heaps of it into my bump after a shower and also when my belly feel a bit itchy so that i don't scratch myself.
JCR: Congrats on having a little girl!!! :smiliedance: How wonderful to have one of each!!! I am so gald your little one decided to cooperate to stop keeping mum and dad in suspense. Looks like you have been busily shopping for pink!!!
Heather: Tyler’s nursery looks great! I love the dark brown/chestnut colour of the cots, tall boy and and change table. DS’ cot is that exact same colour. Oh the glider is also wonderful. We bought one last time round as well and it has come in handy! With respect to sore tummy, are you able to place a pillow under your bump whilst asleep for a bit more support? I find that I have to wedge a pillow underneath mine otherwise it hangs wrong.
Zoe: Hope those migraines start subsiding for you as they sound awful.
NM: I don’t think its annoying getting the count down from you. It a good reminder for us of when you are going for your morph scan! Heheehehehe…. Not long to go now!
Bubbs: Sounds like you had a very busy weekend. I agree that you should shop around. I have found that babies galore is more expensive than other stores which stock the exact same items. Its cool to watch you belly move isn’t it?
AFM: Went to a friend's baby shower on the weekend. It was great fun to play games and celebrate with her on the coming arrival of their first bubba. It was also great to catch up with a few friends whom I haven't seen for a while and to see how much their kids have grown up! I was such a little piggy that day as well. Ate from the time I got there till I left and then went out to dinner at a buffet place and had so much to eat there as well. Only down side was that I could only eat food from the hot places. Couldn't touch the blue swimmer crab, prawns or salad bar :no: Oh well better to be safe than sorry. I am not looking forward to stepping on the scales when I see my OB on friday. I have been gaining about half a kilo each week since my ms stopped!!
Just a quick one before I continue with my house work..
Midwives on Thursday revieled my iron levels are low, so back on iron pills for me. (no wonder I have been so tired) and they seem to think that Dylan has turned, I'll find out when I have my scan on this Thursday.
Well this week in 12 months since I lost angel number 2.. I still think of my lost bubs, I loved them dearly even though I only had them 7 and 8 weeks:angel:
My body seems to be getting ready, my hips, back and pelvis hurt now, I think it's all streaching:yes:.. Mind you getting comphy to sleep is a nono...
Well better feed DD she is home sick (again) with a secondry infection from the flu, poor little possum, she seems to only want ice-cream or jelly..
Take care ladies
goodness, what a busy weekend .. usually it is quiet on the weekend and easy to catch up Monday ..
Kimmy - glad things are going well with Dylan .. and I am sure you will continually think or and miss your other angels ... the 7 or 8 weeks is not what is important .. they were already you babies and you already loved them ... :hugs:hold up that love and smother Dylan with it all .. and of course your poor sick DD ..
happybirthday for yesterday Dearmum - hope you enjoyed dinner ... DH's try hard but sometimes they just dont get it .. I hope your day ended with a smile on your face anyway .. good luck with your tests today .. hope you saved yourself some cake for tonight
my3boyz - nice work on the food intake ... :laughing: .. I hear you with the weight .. I had barely put on a cracker til the last couple weeks and BOOM it is piling on .. and I dont think that I am eating that much .. I am hoping my babies are just big !!
Noahsmum - you go girl with that chocolate ... I have had to stop chocolate .. it makes me feel queasy, of all things !!! I dont think my babies like the sweet stuff .. they want cheese and carbs .. just like their mummy .. not long to go now .. I enjoy your daily count down .. cause then I know how long I have got to go ..
JCR - the name Ruby never crossed by mind and I dont know any Ruby's .. but what a lovely name .. love it ! Your Dh's sounds considerate giving you some "me" time, what a sweetheart ... congrats on your girl, that is great news and a much needed girl for the list !
ibb - enjoy your day off, nothing beats a three day weekend ... enjoy spending some time with your DH .. hope he has recovered from his hangover (sounds exactly like my DH!)
heather - love your nursery furniture, you must be feeling so excited now to walk in and have a finished room ... AND we have the exact same caterpillar - it was the first thing DH and I bought together for the twins, they are so cute ..
Zoe - sorry to hear about your migraines .. never had one but I can only imagine how horrible they are, do you know what tirggers them and can you take anything for them .. hope they go away and stay away .. :hugs:
MMama - good luck with your appt today, hope you get to see bubbs ... WOW, you are from a big family .. I suppose with stretch marks it is a waiting game .. you either get them or you dont .. at nearly 36 it is probably unlikely that my calling to be a swin suit modelling will surface now .. so I suppose it is no big deal .. as long as those babies are healthy, what is a few marks ... maybe some surgery for my 40th :laughing:
bubbs - sounds like you had a busy weekend ... shopping around is key, there is so much to chose from I just dont know where to start with prams .. nice work getting DH out to the shops.. maybe a couple more window shopping experiences will get him in the mood for BUY BUY BUY ... yeah, I think I am feeling flutters but it is hard to know .. I am sure they twinnies will show themselves in good time ..
Meliko - dont your worry hon, that phone is with me and your number is in it .. I am ready to announce your boys to bubhub ... can not wait, glad you are keeping well ... can't wait to see photos of the nursery, it sounds awesome .. keep smiling precious !
Ok - wow, I think that is everyone ... apologies for anyone I have missed .. it was a struggle to get all that out !
AFM - one week today and we have our morph scan ... :smiliedance: man I could explode with excitement (just a little like Noahs Mum) .. nothing else to report .. all good, no ailments nor complaints .. just a slowly growing belly and weight gain ...
Dearmum- Hope you enjoyed your :party:. What a shame you didnt get your ring! Men a very good at let downs like that! I love Christmas and the whole pressie thing. I dont go overboard, just a pressie for DH and I like to get one back, I love to un-wrap a suprize. Anyway DH is not into it, instead he will take me shopping and ask if I would like this or that. Hmmm, I dont care what it is, I just want him to pick something himself and wrap it. That means more. I can go out myself and by the top I want. Oh well. I rely on girlfriends for the super pressie un-wrap. I suppose you could just do your lollipop trick. Hint hint Hubby!:laughing:
How did your testing go? When do you get results?
JCR- Ruby is such a beautiful name. I even considered it we were having a girl. Its a pretty name that is not over used, it has a meaning (not a made up name) and is old fashioned as well as new-aged. And its great for a little girl through to an old lady. I like it. But dont be suprised if you change your mind as time goes on. You may or may not go back to it.
A Baby Bjorn? Is that one of those baby carry things you have on your back or front? Oh gosh, I really am naieve when it comes to these things! I have a lot to learn.
So are any of you in any excerise routines? I walk alot over our property, instead of using the quad bike these days, but my bottom is looking as round as my tummy! Oh no! what can I do to combat the but fat?
For those of you who were saying about aching tums, I have one too. Not all the time, but I get aches and pains and sometimes sharpe ones if I move the wrong way. I had them alot before my last scan, was very anxious to see how bubba was going in case it affected him, but he is going great, no worries for him. He loves to start kicking when I am trying to sleep! then I cant coz I am having too much fun feeling his kicks with my hand. I only feel him moving when I am still.
Had a real rotten day yesterday. I was on my own and had to move a mare out into the back paddock with the others (17 horses in that one paddock) when stupid mare decided to jump the fence to go back to her old friend. She pulled the whole thing down and let the other 17 go crazy on our crop thats is trying desperately to grow. The fence was a nightmare to fix, because it goes over our huge dam, and most of the wire fell into it, so I went into the cold muddy water trying to fetch the wire so I could fix the fence. I finally got it and when I went to repair, the wire wouldnt reach!:banghead: I needed to go and get the old strainers to fix it, only I had at least 1km to walk to get back to the shed and by that time I was exhausted! After an hour I fixed it, and then the bloody horses wouldnt go back in!!!!! Even when I tried to temp them with yummy feed, the crop was tastier. So then I had to end up rounding them up with the quad bike, which I hate doing because you spend so much time teaching them not to be frightened of the damn thing. I got half in and a few cheeky fillies didnt want to play, they did their own thing.:hissy: By then I was beside myself, feeling so helpless, useless and I just wanted to cry and have some one come and do it for me. Then when I was sitting on the bike, bubba gave me a kick, and all my sadness went. It reminded me that there are other far more important things. I suddenly was able to have a clear head, and keep going withour getting to rattled at the situation.:rolleyes:
My3boyz - I'm just really excited about the scan. Great to hear you had a good weekend
Jojo - Not long to go and we will both no the gender's of our babies! Then the exciting stuff happens
Kimmy - I hope Dylan has turned for you. Huni it doesn't matter how long you have them for i always get a bit emotional on the days i lost my 4 babies and on there due dates. I hope DD is feeling better soon
Zoe - Yep it's one of those carriers where you carry the baby on your chest, they are fantastic. I don't do much for exercise i do go for a walk to the shops with DS most days to buy bread! I get alot of those pains as well if i move the wrong way they are probably just stretching pains. Sounds like you had a pretty full on day yesterday with the fence and horse.. Nothing better though when you have a bad day then bubs starts moving and kicking, it just makes everything all better. It's the same when they are here when they have kept you up at night or do something naughty during the day the minute DS does his cheeky smile at me he makes me laugh and i forget what has just happened
Noahsmum- well I might need one of them for around the farm. Prehaps when bubba get neck control I might consider it. How are they for backs? My lower back is not good. Yeah, kids really put things back in perspective dont they.
kimmy- I am so sorry to hear you lost your bubba's. Never had it happen to me, I cant imagine how it must feel. On the up side, things are going well now? At least popping pills is the only thing you have to worry about now. Silly thing to say really- your having a baby, which means the worry does not stop there!
Well I am a little way of, but getting alittle anxious about a few things regarding the birth. Firstly, the midwives I have met so far are not the welcoming type. One was very short with me and everytime she asked me a question, she would cut me off when I tried to answer! The other one was shy maybe. I didnt feel comfortable at all and I really feel the need to feel comfortable in such an experience. I remember when mum was having my sister, the midwives there were so rude to her. I dont want an experience like that. You know your body better than anyone, and i cant stand it if someone tells you that you cant possibly be feeling what you say you are feeling. :banghead: The doctor was really nice, but they said they will only call him if necessary. Otherwise they will do the delivery.
Secondly- I have heard you can do, um poopies while pushing. Oh no I am so terrified of that, especially having such uncaring midwives. Has anyone else had an experience like that. Does anyone else have anxious feelings about that? What happens? OMG what would they all think:confused: I'm really nervous about that one!
Oh God, I hope I have not made anyone else nervous???? I dont mean to, its just that my midwives are not easy to talk to so who else can I ask? everyone else has been such a help here....
On that note, I cant wait to see and hold my bubba for the first time, and to hear his cries. Oh I bet when he gets older if he knew what I am writting here he would think I am corny... am I?
Dearmum it was lovely to catch up with you today....you are looking fantastically gorgeous. Can't wait for next time....hopefully before your twins arrive.
Zoe I have known a few midwives who were like that in my time but when it comes to the crunch they are very professional at the job at hand....as for your concern about passing a bowel motion during the delivery, it really is a common occurance but m/w's and ob are so very discret about it that you will probably never know.
JCR - love the name Ruby....it's my sister's m/name after a dear Aunty of ours. You sound like you had a great shopping trip :yes:.
NM I must confess that I am a bit of a chocoholic from way back and I HATE to share.....I buy the kids a block to share between them and keep mine all to myself :laughing:. Ooh the countdown is really on for your scan now :yelclap:.
My3boyz I have started piling on the weight too....I have been having 3wkly appts due to past history and it's been around 2-3kgs every visit :eek:.
Jojo how exciting that your morph scan is coming up too....can't wait to hear what your twins are.
Kimmy :hugs: for you hon.
Well my appt went well, not much to report really.....bp fine, baby fine, mummy fine. I'm actually beginning to think that I may carry this bub to term...what a novelty that would be.
Zoe - I really think it depends on the size of bubs, i had a big bubba and i couldn't use the carrier anymore then half hour. If you don't have a good lower back you might find it a bit much. Sorry to hear you don't have very nice midwifes i have really nice ones. Not corny at all very natural
MM - I don't share my chocolate with DH either
AFM - 3 more sleeps to go, well that's if i sleep! I haven't slept a wink i had a massive tooth ache last night before i went to bed and it has kept me up i still have it now! I am going to call the dentist and try and get in late this afternoon when DH gets home from work otherwise i have to put it off until tomorrow when DS is at preschool.. I think i am goign to have to keep myself very busy today until DS goes down for his sleep
Well i was way to tired to post yesterday,after having my GTT test and lunch with Maorimama i rushed home to have some of my chocs :othen quickly picked up my son had a bath and bang to bed.
Today im having a shopping day with my youngest DD,she is feeling left out and has said im spending heaps of money on the babies and she is getting nothing awww so today im treating her.Hehe then im off to ikea to grab them cotts:p
Maorimama....Babe i really enjoyed myself yesterday i could have chatted all day:laughing:
Now dont worry about weight gain coz your looking good and your having a healthy pregnancy and thats the main thing.We can be exercise buddy via the net once bubbs arrive ok.
Hi NM.....:yelclap:Not many days to go now,yep 3 sleeps i cant wait.Ouch that tooth ache sounds awful,i do hope they can fit you in today.
Hi Jojo....Its all happening soon for you too:yelclap:we need the days to go quick for you guys.
Ok gona cut it short talk again later XX
Ibb - How was your physio appointment yesterday?
How is ur dad feeling now hun? Hope he is improving day by day...?
Dearmum - How was your test yesterday hun?? When do you get ur results??
JCR - Yup we've already decided about the baby bjorn. Can't wait. Ruby is a gorgeous name. A precious little gem she will be for you and ur DH. :cloud9:
Noahsmum - Sorry to hear about your tooth. Theres nothing worst then that. Try to see if u can sleep a little today when DS is napping and get to the dentist.
My3boys - You have a very good excuse to eat hun. Enjoy it and then worry about it later when the bub is born. Ur bubba is probably wanting to grow a little more so feels hungry alot. How is ur backache now??
Kimmy - :hugs: You will never forget ur little angels. They're precious no matter how tiny they were. How is ur DD feeling now???
Jojo - Yup ull feel ur twinnies in a week or so. Amazing once they start kicking. Some uncomfortable moments if they kick near the bladder but its all worth it.
We're looking at the MacLaren Twin Techno Pram. Although I like the look of Peg Perego Aria Twin 50/50 but have heard some negative reviews and DH's work colleague has twins and he's highly recommended the MacLaren. Said it was light weight and very easy to move around and fitted through the normal doors...Lets see. Theres just so much to think about.
We'll be spending this weekend looking through all the baby stores.
Zoe - Yes baby bjorn is the baby carrier that you carry in the front. Very handy i feel. I hope u ended up having a better day today adn the horses were well behaving.
I too get nervous thinking about birthing but I think they are experienced with all that happens during labour. Its all natural stuff...try to not stress over it.
As for ur midwives...hopefully they'll start answering ur questions...and there isn't anything wrong in asking...u want to gain knowledge and shud be asking them questions, whether they like it or not.
Maorimama - Isn't it great to carry ur baby full term?? Glad to hear that alls going well.
Heather - How are you going?? How's tyler??
AFM - I had hot flushes in the train this morning and started to feel very uneasy...had to take out my jacket and then started to get blackouts and my body just felt numb. Lucky i had kiwifruit in my bag so took it out and just bit into it...couple of bites later i started to get my vision back again. Was freaky.
Its happened a few times now...so will be good to know what it might be.
i still feel i have issues with iron even though am taking iron tablets every night. Will be asking my Obs on the 11th, my next appointment.
Bubba on my right was kicking away yesterday and was kinda making me uncomfortable. I went out at lunch, sat in a park in the sun and sang them repeatedly "hush little baby" and rubbed my belly...and my right bubba quietened down straight away and didn't kick me after that...i think i put him to sleep :cloud9:
Aawwww. if only they behave like that when they're out, i'll be very happy. :yelclap:
Is anyone finding that their time is going really slow now??? I've felt the weeks are starting to drag now.
Am 22 weeks today and have another 6 weeks of work left. I think i'll be very ready by then. Looking forward to some sleeping in time in the mornings and just taking things at my own pace.
I just found out...my sis in law is organising a "surprise" baby shower for me...she apparantly included me in the email that she sent to everyone...but gave me a call and told me to delete the email straight away. :laughing:
Now thats what i call a blondeeeee.
seriously...can't trust her to do anything. My dad told her off because he was copied in on the email and dad called me...he goes how silly is she to send u the email?? hahahhaa
Shes going to hear it big time from my DH too once he realises it.
I just have to pretend i don't know anything...well I don't. The only thing i know is that there is an invitation for double trouble...i did geniunely delete the email because i didn't want to ruin it for everyone and myself...better to be in with the surprise....but what a classic. :p
Ok i think thats long enuff...better get some work done.
Dearmum - We must have posted at the same time.
Sounds like u had a nice day yesterday catching up with maorimama...how cool.
Great idea to go spoil ur little DD...yeah sounds like she is feeling left out. Am sure she'll enjoy some mummy time today...have fun shopping.
Lucky u. :yelclap:
DM - Awww your DD sounds so sweet i hope you enjoy your mummy daughter day today! When do you get your results back?
Bubbs - That's not good what happened on the train this morning maybe your sugar levels get a bit to low, hun becareful just incase you pass out! YAY 6wks left of work wahoooo.. I can't believe your SIL that was a seriously big blonde moment
I tried to get in to see the dentist today but they can't fit me in even though i explained my situation. I was chatting over the phone and if they can't save the tooth i will need an extraction. I'm not to happy about that considering it's the wisdom tooth that is causing problems but i am already missing a tooth up the back! I only have myself to blame i kept putting it off.
Kimmy: :hugs: hon. Ofcourse you loved them, even though they were part of your life for a very short time. I am sure that you will never forget them. Hope your iron levels improve with the tablets and you get a bit more energy back. Fingers crossed that Dylan has turned from his breech position. Hope your DD feels better real soon.
Jojo: I am glad that I am not the only one that has had to give up chocolate for the time being. It makes me feel nauseous after eating. And I can’t touch anything that has chocolate in it. I had a couple of spoon full of yogo the other week and felt this awful lump at the back of my throat, exactly what I had when in the throes of ms! Gross! Not long now till you find out gender of your bubbas :yelclap: You will be blown away at how much they have grown since your 12 week scan! Have fun seeing your bubbas.
Zoe: Sorry you had a terrible time with your horses the other day. I am sure you must have been beside yourself after trying to tackle the issue with the fence and then rounding them up afterwards. So glad that you were able to feel comfort from your lilttle boy’s kicks. Its an amazing feeling, knowing that they are all Ok inside. Hopefully you will get better midwives for the birth than the ones that you meet. Even when you have a private OB, it’s the midwives that look after you until it is time to push and then they call your doc to come for the delivery only. Oh and don’t worry about doing poos as well. Like Moarimama said they are very discrete. One thing that I didn’t know about before giving birth to my DS 2 years ago was that you can pee during the pushing stage. My poor midwife copped it when I started so this time round I am making sure that I pee more regularly so that I don’t embarrass myself like that again…..
NM: 3 more sleeps to go. Not long now till you find out bubs gender! :smiliedance: Sorry you couldn’t get in to see the dentist today. Hopefully they can save that tooth rather than extract it. I also put off going to the dentist as much as I can. I hate sitting in those chairs with my mouth open.
Moarimama: So glad your appointment went well yesterday and that bubba is AOK. Hopefully you can carry this bubba to term as I know that all your others have been early.
Dearmum: Glad you and moarimama had such a lovely time yesterday. Its wonderful for you to take your youngest DD out to spoil her. Have fun shopping.
Bubbs: I hope you find out why you are getting your mini blackouts. Could it be because you are low in blood sugar? How scarey it must be to suddenly lose your vision! LOL about your sis in law’s mistake. You are a real sport for not looking at the invite. I would have been too tempted to see what was written on it!
AFM: Spent the night in DS' room. He is sick with a cold and I felt so sorry for him as he was coughing throughout the night. He would wake himself up from coughing and then mumble something and then try to get back to sleep again. The poor mite. Doesn't help that he has a blocked and runny nose either.
3 more days till my Ob appointment. it will be nice to see bubba on screen again and see where the placenta is sitting now.
I have a hens night to go to this coming weekend. I'll just be going to dinner though and opting out of clubbing as I can't drink, can't dance and don't want to be in a smoky environment. It will be nice to catch up with my friends over dinner though :yes:
NM not good news that you can't get into the dentist today...hope the pain doesn't cause you too much distress.
Bubbs what a worry your episode on the train is....could it be low sugar levels??? I too think I am still low in iron even though I have been on iron tablets pretty much from the word go...I'll be asking to have my bloods checked again when I have my glucose test done. Had to :laughing: at your SIL sending you the email to your surprise shower...too funny. Just act surprised on the day for everyone elses benefit.
My3boyz oh your poor boy...I sure hope he is feeling better soon. My Dr doesn't have a scanner in his rooms unfortunately, lucky for you that your one does. Yes I am very excited at how well things are going for me with this pregnancy....it's exciting and scary....exciting that I may finally have the chance for my body to do things naturally but scary at not knowing what lies ahead....with inductions I always knew when it would happen and what to expect.
Well I made some fudge this morning as I was feeling like something sweet and couldn't be bothered going to the shops....trouble is now I can leave it alone. HAs anyone seen my willpower lurking??
Maorimama - Yup i'll be asking for an iron check myself...i think and feel it might be iron but it could also be low sugar levels...becoz as soon as i had some kiwifruit...i was fine. Lucky i had a kiwifruit in my bag...imagine if i hadn't :eek: ...would have collapsed right there and then...
Whats ur fudge recipe hun?? I want some too. YUM :chef:
my3boys - Oh now ur poor little DS...i hope he feels better soon...maybe try to have those vicks vaporisers...that might help ur poor boy...it must be so hard when little kids are sick. U take it easy though hun...
Yes i think i was pretty strong about not reading the email...infact i deleted it from my inbox and then straight away went to deleted items and deleted it from there so that I wouldn't get tempted to read it again. :laughing:
But yeah i guess i'd like some surprise too. I did suspect that they might organise a surpiise party for me...its so easy...these guys can't hide things from me...even if they tried. :p
My3 - I hate the dentist too which is why i put it off for so long, i just hope they can save my tooth. These next 3 days are going to drag! My DS has a cough and runny nose as well, i think he got sick last thursday after the make up class for swimming the temp was a degree colder then the next day he was sick. I hope DS gets better soon
MM - It's probably off with mine somewhere
Well had a good day out just -$$:laughing:
DD got spoilt we went clothes shopping and she found lots of nice clothes for summer.
I also popped into Ikea and didnt like the cheap cotts:(coz they look homemade and the next price up was more expensive than BigW so i didnt get them.I ended up getting the Bed/cotts from BigW will get DH to pic them up tommorro.
Did i tell ya having twins works out expensive.
I ended up taking my oldest DD shopping also coz her ML was home and she cant stand being around her to long hehe.Anyway the whole time she was complaining about her,so funny.
Hi Bubbs....Awww just pretend you get suprised:laughing:at your baby shower.Its going to be a great day with or without a suprise.Hell yeh i feel the time go slow day by day im not counting down the months anymore im counting down the days and boy it makes it worse hehe.Bubbs have you perhaps got low blood pressure?i have that problem because i have low blood pressure,the docs dont seem worried about it but.
Hi NM....Babe did you get in to your dentist?
Yep i get my results back tommorro so should be good coz im going to the docs tommorro also and my scan yay cant wait.
Hi Kimmy.....Babe i just want to say i know how you feel losing a baby and each time there dates come up it cant be easy:hugs:i gave birth to mine in Sept last year and thats coming up,i really dnt know what to do because i never went to his funeral and i feel bad but i also feel i wont be able to handle going there.I love him so much.
Hi My3boys....Oh your poor DS i hope it clears up soon it awful seeing them like that.
Well sounds like you have a fun weekend coming up make the most of it:)
Maorimama....Hmmm fudge i love fudge,anything and everthing sweet ATM.Babe just enjoy it your bubba must be a sweet tooth hehe.
Howdy to the rest of you lovely ladies.
Meliko.....Babe still waiting on the belly pics LOL.
DM - Glad to hear you had a great day out with DD yesterday! I hope your results come back ok, YAY you get to see your bubbs again!
AFM - DS is off at preschool today they gave me a CD they made up of Daddy songs for DS to give to DH on father's day plus there is a surprise card with photo in teh mail for father's day as well.. I'm a bit annoyed they didn't do anything like that for mother's day! Anyways i am all booked in for the dentist at 1pm god i hope they can save my tooth! hopefully i still have the courage to get them to check out another tooth which has been bothering me! Oh and best of all 2 more sleeps
:wave: ladies, hope you are all well ...
just a quick post to say hi, busy busy bee at work this week ..
Noahs Mum - not long now .. you must be geting excited .. hope you get that tooth sorted out soon ..
bubbs - hope you get yourself checked out to find the cause of the incident on the train .. you dont want that happening again ..
dearmum - lots of shopping for you .. hope your DD now feels better after her special mum/daughter shopping .. good to know about those Ikea cots, I had been looking online and wondering what they were like .. think I might look elesehwere .. dont want cheap looking ones for my twinnes ..
my3boyz - hope your poor DS is feeling better ... poor baby ...
:wave: Mmama - thanks for teasing us with that fudge :laughing:
AFM .. woke up this morning with DH's hand all over my belly ... he was trying to see if he could feel the babies moving, was so sweet .. he didn't feel anything apart from some hard bits and some soft bits ... they are moving cause my belly shape changes but can't feel it yet ..they like to play hide and seek ..:laughing:
Have a great day ladies ... xo
Jojo - Thats so sweet of your DH. I got my DH to put his hand on my belly but he was in and out of his sleep...i felt the kicks but then when i asked DH he said he still couldn't...although he was half asleep...He says there'll be plenty of opportunity to feel them...
Dearmum - Sounds like some great quality time with ur DD...how old is ur youngest DD and what does she do??
Glad that ur elder DD also joined u...is she working?? maybe that might help as she'd be away from her mother in law during the day...has she studied anything at uni?? maybe she can take up some sort of study to keep her occupied. :yes:
NM - I hope the dentist appointment goes well for u...2 more sleeps...:smiliedance:
AFM - Not much to report...feeling strange kicks or spasm type feeling near where my bladder is...assuming that its baby kicking me...gets a bit uncomfortable at times but its ok.
Other then that...nothing else...just a little tired too as didnt' sleep till 11pm and got up at 5.30am...so am :sleeping:
Anyway...hope u all have a lovely day... :yes:
Well im off to have my scan and doc appt this morning,just praying my little girl is ok.Im scared about getting my results for the GTT test coz i kind of feel i have diabetes now coz i have had this bite on my leg for weeks and it doesnt want to heal:rolleyes:but soon i will know.
Hubby will be getting those cotts for me today or well he better anyway.My DD is coming over later coz she wants to help put them up and decorate the room she is so clucky.
Hi Bubbs....Yeh it was nice going out with my daughters,my youngest DD is 12 she is in yr 7,and my oldest DD is 18 she finished up her yr 12 but doesnt know what she wants just perfect world yet,her perfect world is the hubby earn $$$$$ and she just spends:laughing:she hates working.She really has this princess personality,because the hubby will be earning a good salary i have told her why not go back to school and oneday get herself a dream job she is only young,but knowing her she will get pregnant and be a house wife i can see it.
Hi Jojo....Yeh you wouldnt like the ikea cotts they really look home made and cheap.Iv paid $279 on special for the BigW ones and they are nice and strong and convert to a bed so im happy.
Haha your hubby is keen hey,my DH is over all the touching he only touches when he wants something:rolleyes:but i do remember him being that way with my first and that was what 20yrs ago.Gosh i need a trade in i reckon.
Well i be back gota rush:wave:
Jojo - that's so sweet with DH. When i was pregnant with DS he was very cheeky when he started kicking so you could feel it on the outside, every time he started i would yell out DH name and DS would stop kicking as soon as he would walk away he would start up again. In the end i would casually say 'hey' DH would come over and finally he got to have a feel of a kick..
Bubbs - Your babies could be laying in a different position causing those strange kicks
DM - Good luck babe
i haven't been feeling well this morning so i have been laying in bed watching movies and to my surprise bubs started kicking... Awwww
DM: Goodluck with your scan. I am sure your bubba is safe and sound. Not that it stops us from worrying. Good luck with your test results. When do you get the results? So I take it things note healing is a sign of diabetes?
Bubbs- i get a funny feeling there too. Makes me want to go to the loo when I get it. Must be baby kicking or at least leaning on that spot.:yes:
JoJo- Yeah thats so cute of your DH. I woke up in the middle of the night to find mine doing the same thing. Bubba was kicking lots last night. My rest time is his play time!
N mum- Hope all goes well with your tooth. A tooth problem is a horrible thing to put up with. I have a crack in one of mine. Hurts when I eat something hot or cold, but somebody told me that I couldnt get it fixed while pregnant. :banghead: Wish people would get their facts right before they atart giving advice. Anyway, all the best and I hope they save your tooth.:goodvibes:
Maorimama- mmmmm, that fudge sounds soooo good! I had 2 milos and a small slice of lemon tart yesterday and was feeling so guilty. I have a cranky old mid wife who frowns at me if I dare say I have had any chocolate! I dont have much, but every now and then its ok, hey?
Well its a beautiful day here:sunshine:. Dont get them too often. I had some young girls come to look at a filly I had for sale. Not one DH and I bred, just one we saved. Anyway she is nice now, but I dont have time to handle the horses much these days, not with a growing bubba bump! Anyway one of the girls all of 16 tried to throw her weight around, you know the type who 'knows' everything. And she was soooo rude! She insulted me on my own horses (because they are mostly smarter than the people who handle them, and thats when people have trouble with them, so the 'dummy' people dont like horses that are too smart for them!) and then she stood there puffing smoke in my face! After I just told her I couldnt show them much with the filly as I am pregnant!:hair: Some people. Anyway, when they ring back later I think I will tell them the filly is sold. Typical young horse girl, think they know it all. Should have shown her up on a few mistakes she made! He he. That would have put her back in her box. Anyway, I couldnt be bothered. At the end of the day is bubba and I who matter, so for bubba's sake I stepped away from the smoke and let young girl embarress herself with the mistakes she made with the filly. Sweet revenge. Sorry to you non-horsey people to bore you, but just think of it as what you do, if someone came and threw their weight around your place when it is obvious they dont know what they are talking about. And insult you with the smoke and the naieve comments. Oh well. Its too ice a day to worry about such silly things.
bubbs - sounds like you have a couple movers and shakers in their .. active little boys you have :yes:
Zoe - oh god .. I hear you ... some teenagers just think they know EVERYTHING and dont even open their mind to the possibility that someone old may have something to teach/share with them. Some of them are so self absorbed it drives me up the wall .. good on the horse for showing her up, that will teach her :laughing: we used to live on a farm and I rode when I was younger ... haven't for years .. I love horses, the smell of them sends me back to my childhood .. lucky you to live on a farm and have all that freedom .. bet you are missing your riding now your are pregnant ..
dearmum - I might duck down to Big W and have a look ... I am being very fussy with cots and it is driving me :hair: Dh just sits there and nods cause he knows I will change my mind tomorrow ... I really love the sleigh costs but at 800 each, when you have to buy two it kinda makes it very hard to justify .. not to mention ALL the other things we need to buy .. good luck with your test results today and your scan .. hope that little girl of yours has had a growth spirt ..
Noahsmum - :hugs: hope you feel better soon .. I am sure bubbs kicks are enough to lighten any mood ...
Back to work I go .. I am writing a proposal today and it is doing my head in .. my brain is not working at its usual capacity which makes thinking and writing all that much harder ..
Hi again. Had a huge day, so now I am up for a rest, maybe even a pregnant-ladies nap:laughing:. Oooo, baby boy is giving me a few kicks. Must be happy that I am still now.:yes:
Beautiful day here today. Got lots done. Jojo- I am missing riding a little, but I am so enjoying being pregnant. A friend of mine said she was happy to have a baby, but horrified what it did to her body. Well all I can say, is she has not done the hard yards like the rest of us! I cant wait to get so big that I cant see my feet! Woo-hoo!
I noticed everyone is buying cots now? I bought mine a few weeks ago, maybe a little too keen? Well DH and I only ment to check out a pram, but got such a great deal with other things we couldnt not buy them. It was at a store called Bonnie Babies, and since the people who own the store run it as well, I got some great bargains. And why not? When you have to buy so much for these little ones... I got a beautiful cot for later on that converts to a bed, so it will do bubba untill he is about 5 years old. What a great idea. It looks like an English Oak look, I love the timber look. I need to buy one of those rocker chairs with the foot stool for nursing. I think they are a great idea. Someone else here had one, though I cant possibly remember who.....
Jojo- good luck with your proposal. I know I need to be in the mood for those sorts of things, otherwise I cant concerntrate. Cant even do it now..... so tired.:sleeping:
Zoe - It's totally fine to go to the dentist while pregnant, just as long as they don't take xrays! If i were you i would get it fixed sooner rather then later otherwise it will hang around your whole pregnancy
Jojo - Not long until our scans..
Back from the dentist he put on a temporary filling and told me i need to go back after bubs is born. I told him i will be there for sure i want to get all my teeth checked and sorted. If i continue having problems with the tooth it will need to be pulled.. I was a brave lil solider
Jojo - I've been looking at prams and cots on the internet myself the past week and theres just so much out there...
I agree with the sleigh cot but it doesn't justify the cost when u have to buy two of everything...
But we have decided that we will buy a cot that converts into a bed later so we won't have to worry about it for the next 5 to 6 yrs.
and will buy both the same in colour and style for the boys.
As for pram...am tossing up between so many...
I like the peg perego aria twin, then there is the mountain buggy (but I don't like the fact that the recline isn't that straight, i mean when u want to sit bubba up after it reaches a certain age, i don't think it fully supports the back.
There is another called Firstwheel city twim pram, thats pretty nice too...
So alot to pick from.
We're still shoppipng around though.
We did like the Maclaren Pram when we saw it over the weekedn...the twin techno but now i don't like it because i feel its not as strong and also feel that it doesn't have a bar and its important to have that bar.
As for carseat...we're just going to buy the normal car seats which u can use from birth to 4 yrs i think, and then u are required to get the booster...can't remember the brand but i think it was called safe n sound.
I agree there are just lots of things to buy. babies r us gave a list of "EVERYTHING" and i mean EVERYTHING to get started, i am just still in shock from looking at that list. :eek:
I was also looking at their cot set...the basics with quilt, headboard, fitted sheet, blanket, one normal sheet and pillow case was costing about $159...
and then to buy atleast a few extra fitted sheets and blankets...muslin wraps etc etc :eek: :eek: :eek:
Can't wait to get started though...it'll all start feeling real.
Also my baby shower is well on its way to being organised...so am hoping to get alot of things from there...well atleast some neccessaty things atleast like cot sets and wraps etc...so lets see how it all goes.
NM - Glad u got filling done. I had issues with my tooth at 10 weeks and went to the dentist...the dentist did a fililng but has also told me to go back to him once i have the babies to get a thorough checkup done. Thats surely in the cards for me once my bubba's are born.
Zoe - We haven't yet bought anything as we didn't feel we wanted to at this stage...even now we are only looking but haven't really made up our mind. I don't think we will buy until maybe another month or so...but thats just us. :rolleyes:
Dearmum - I guess ur DD will do what she wants to..maybe at the moment shes kinda just enjoying being a house wife...
but she could do a short course at tafe or something to have it as a sideline...if shes interseted in beauty then she can do a beautician course and look into starting up her own busniess from home...so thats extra income coming in but of course she's gotta pick the field that shes interested in...or even childcare...great money once u have ur own business up and running. Its something i'd be keen on doing...beauty is my passion and so is makeup so am looking at doing coupel of short courses so i can get my name out there for bridal and formal makeups and things. I love it with a passion. :bee:
Hey all!!!:wave: Sorry, no personals today, I'm exsausted!
Well had our OB appointment today, we are now on weekly appointments as of today! They are so so happy with the boys and my health, they couldnt possibly be happier, they are all so shocked how eaisy its all been! They have booked me in for our c-section (however they highly doubt we'll make it to the booked date but we are all hoping!) for 30th October which would make us 36 weeks :eek: Everything is going so well, they have decied to try their luck and stretch it out as long as possible... hmmm we'll see!! But if they do get to 36 weeks its highly doubtfull that they'll need any help, which means they'd be in our room at the hospital and come home with us!! BUT they said if it happened that we went into labour tonight, next week ect they'd still be fine with help. Soooo nice to hear that!!!!!
Hope your all well!!!!
Meliko - Thats such great news hun. :yelclap: :smiliedance:
I truely hope that u can take them up to 36 weeks...but it all depends on how eager they are to get out as well but sounds like u're in great hands.
It'll be so nie to take them home right after and them being in the same room :fingerscrossed:
Looking forward to seeing some updated pics from u hun.
Well it's all set..

Hi Zoe.....Were abouts do you live im in Perth?
I have lived around horses most of my lives as well,my father is into thoroughbreds and he and my brother are horse trainers.I have always owned my own horse but once i married i gave it away but always craved riding,anyway i nagged my DH for a horse so we both ended up getting one and then my DD 12 at the time wanted one so us three would ride together we would have races it was just a fun day out.We got tired of thinking about them and not riding enough so we gave them away.But i will always love horses.
Hi Bubbs...Yeh the list goes on :laughing:and with twins its very expensive.
Jojo.....Yeh i was lucky to get my cotts on sale although the sale had ended i came up with a couple white lies and they gave it to me for the sale price hehe.Just waiting around for DH to bring it home now.So i have my cotts at $278,change table at $158,pram at $240,car seats at $140,bassinettes at $119 so i feel like i have saved a fair bit shopping around.
Well gota go and finish the washing :rolleyes:
Oh i have chocolates from my birthday staring at me should i or shouldnt i???
:wave:Meliko.....:yelclap:Thats such good news haha i bet you dont want to go as far as 36 weeks,i wish my babies were small but ok to come out now:obut i know its best for them to be in just incase.Yeh im still on fortnightly visits but im having scans at each visit so cant complain coz its not costing me nothing.
Hi Kimmy....:yelclap:Oh gosh you are lucky to get a date,wow thats so close to when im hoping for mine to pop out hehe.According to my 36 weeks my due date is the 26th Oct :smiliedance:just countdown now hey.
Bubbs - Sounds like you have soooo much shopping to do, it must be sooo expensive! The funny thing is with this tooth i had problems with it when i was pregnant with DS i had 2 teeth that needed to be fixed and chose the other tooth i was meant to go back and never did oops
Meliko - That's great to hear you and the bubbs are all doing well, i really hope that you make it to 36wks
Kimmy - OMG 7 weeks how exciting! I can't wait to see photo's of Dylan's nursery
DM - Great to hear your babies are doing so well. Hun i'm sorry to hear you have diabetes did they say it will go once the babies are born? Maybe one last choccie
I picked DS up from school today to see the preschool had made all the dad's a CD of songs plus a father's day card with there hand print and photo it's so cute DH is going to love it i can't wait for him to see it. DH and DS are both out the front doing the weeding it's soooo cute
dearmum sorry to hear of the gestational diabetes. in a way it could be a good thing to help your twins gain weight and be a good size when born.
my sister had gestational diabetes with her kids and she had babies at 8lb-9+lb.
as you have twins i imagine it would be a little different.
do u have to take insulin or just monitor your diet?
great to hear you got some good bargains for the twins and for your dd.
meliko exellent to hear that they want to try and get your boys to 36 weeks. fingers crossed they stay in there for that long. i bet you are really exhausted by now. i am feeling it today with the one bubba:laughing:.
kimmy so nice to hear you have your induction date for little dylan. you can start counting down now. how is that housework/nesting going?
hope your dd is ok and enjoying her jelly and icecream treatment.
bubbs sorry to hear of your train episode, thank goodness you had the kiwifruit on hand.
sounds like u need to monitor your bp or blood sugar closely.
hope u are well now.
noahsmum how cute of your ds to make that for his daddy i bet your dh just loves it.
how are your teeth going?
zoe how far along are you now?
dh and i got our cot at around 12 weeks well actually it was more like 20 weeks cos we had to wait for it but we paid for it at the 12ish week mark.
i too would not sell your filly to that rude girl out of principal. cant believe she smoked in your face when you had told her you were pregnant. guess it depends how much u need the money aswell and how much longer you feel you can look after the filly.
my3boyz sorry to hear of ds being sick, hope he gets better soon.
good luck for your ob appt in a couple of days.
maorimama oh that fudge sounds yummy, send mine care of australia post if you have any left hehe.
hello to everyone else i hope you are all well and your babies are growing along nicely.
afm not much to report, feeling it today i tells ya. achey and feeling large and tired.
tyler decided today he would stretch out and hurt me today but i guess i only have more of that to come.
counting down til our 3d/4d scan on saturday woo hoo.
Meliko- Great news. :yelclap: Now that you its getting so close I bet you are excited! I am over the moon as each week goes by!
Kimmy- 22nd October is not far away! Wow, it will fly by before you know it.
Heatherm- Im only 20 weeks, now bought the cot 2 weeks ago. Waiting for it to arrive at shop, so wont have it for a little longer yet, but I have bubba's bassinet. It feels so real when you start buying stuff! I know, that girl was so rude. What an attitude! Filly is number 38, so I am only so keen to sell her because I want to drasticly reduce the herd before baby is born. To about 15 would be good. But not to someone like that. Looking forward to your scan. :smiliedance:
Dearmum- Thats so nice to hear about your twinnies. Great news that the doctors are so wrapped with their progress. Too bad about your diabetes. You had it before, havent you? Not that it makes it easier, but at least you will know what to expect.
What are other symptoms? I have been batteling a eczema breakout all over me, most has gone now, but on my legs where it was has turned into great big sores. I cant get rid of them. Oh no! Could it mean...:confused: I live in Vic, so a looonnnggg way from you! Have rallies over there, they said the weather has been nice lately, well, nicer than here! Yes well horses always stay in your blood, but I have dedicated alot of my life to them, and I still want them around, but now I just want to concerntrate on having a family.:yes:
Sorry to anyone I have missed. I am so tired again. Be of to bed in a minnie. Have a antenatal app tomorrow so will se how bubba is going and if there is a chance I might have diabetes. Good night:sleeping:
Well hubby got the cotts and set them up it looks good :Dnow im going to do the fun part and finish decorating.He also bought a change table but the B****Y thing didnt have the screws in it so back it goes.Yeh missing chocolate so much its not funny and now i eyes everywere watching what im eating cant cheat:laughing:so i told them ok im going onto salty things.
Hi Zoe....Nah i have never had diabetes before its all new to me and scary.They have told me its border diabetes so its still mild but because i have twins it can get worse.Well im not really sure about other symtoms but im finding my eyes get blury sometimes.
Zoe how many weeks are you? they will give you a diabetes test around 26 weeks.
Hi Heather....Yeh i was thinking about the positives of helping the twins to become big but according to the nurses they dont want them to get big from sugar diabetes:(
Yeh i bet you cant wait for your 3/4d scan.
Hi NM.....The doc said the diabetes will go once bubs are born so i hope so coz it would make life a hassel keeping an eye on this.
Awww i remember my DD getting a large tea towel with her hand prints on it we ended up framing it and as she grew she would say mum oh my hands were so small.Im sure your DH is going to be proud and love those pressies.
Dearmum - Sorry to hear about getting diabetes but the good thing is that it will go away after the babies are born...just make sure u don't cheat and keep on top of what u eat...end of the day u don't want it to get worse.
Its hard staying away from chocolate but because u know its good to stay away, and u have a reason to stay away, it gets easier. :yes:
NM - One more sleep to go hun...i thought i better say it before u remind us all again. :laughing:
I bet u can't wait...
How is ur tooth??
Heather - Lucky u in regards to the 4d scan. I bet u can't wait. I hope i have a growth scan referal letter from my obs when i go back to see her on the 11th...
Yes i hear u about feeling achy and heavy...i am feeling that too...and massive.
Zoe - Goodluck with ur appointment today...
AFM - Feeling fine...just a little extra tired but its probably from the extra baby weight am carrying and also not sleeping too well.
I can't wait for the weekend...sleeping in a little, although because i sleep mainly on one side, i find the longer i stay in bed the more uncomfortable i feel.
But doing great otherwise...no complaints.
Hope the rest of u are doing well.
Well i had another strange dream last night,
my babies are lying across ways and its been on my mind so anyway in my dream they suddenly pushed there foot almost through my belly i freaked coz i could see there bones almost and they moved anyway they moved to much and just came out of my skin:laughing:OMG it was scary but the were huge and i just cleaned them up and dressed them they both had massive amounts of curly hair:pgosh what a dream.
So yesterday my DD came over and helped me decorate the nursery a bit we put up the stickers.Now im going to get a border,and i still need some picture frames on the walls.It never ends.
Hi Meliko....Babe show us some pics of your babies nursery:)
Hi NM....Hehe yep only oneday left for your scan :smiliedance:
Hi Bubbs....You do sound tired! babe have you been baby shopping yet? i just bought some cute socks yesterday 4 for $10.Im finding it really hard not to go to crazy on clothes coz they have heaps already.I guess once your baby shower is over you can top up what you need.
Hi Heather....Babe how much do you need to pay for your 3d scans over there?
Well i will be back :wave:
Dearmum - Yup I am tired...very tired and just need to wind down i think. Finding it hard to get comfortable at night and then the weight of the bubs makes me sluggish. I also feel its iron related...will be requesting for a BT for my iron levels at my next appointment.
No haven't done ANY shopping yet...I will start buying baby clothes and things after my two baby showers...or atleast after my first shower on 3rd October. Oh yes by the way i asked my dad what date my sis inl aw had planned for the shower and he said the 3rd Oct. :laughing:
Am thinking a week before i'll get my nails done, just to pamper myself a bit. :p
R u sorted with all the clothes now for the babies???
Morning ladies. Just a quick one from me today.
dearmum: Glad the twinnies are doing well but sorry to hear about the GD. My friend had it and had to clear out all her cupboards of chocolate, sweets and biscuits and then had to go on a controlled diet. Like you she had been craving sweet things the whole pregnancy. Hope you don't have to jab too often with insulin :hugs: Glad to see that your nursery is well on its way to getting finished. I can't wait to see pics of it.
NM: How cute that they got the kiddies to make stuff for their daddy's. My DS loves to "weed" the garden as well.
bubbs: When is your next appointment? If it is not for a while then maybe best to get a BT from your GP to get ontop of your iron levels and BP if that is what is causing your issues.
Kimmy: YAY on having a date all boooked!!! How wonderful to know that you will have your bubba in your arms on that day! :thumbsup:
heather: Not long now till your 3/4d scan. Pls post up piccies when you get a chance to.
:wave: to everyone else. I know I have missed heaps of you.
AFM: Just realised yesterday that I only have 5 to 6 weeks left of work. Kind of scared the crap out of me as I need to finish off a couple of reports and get a huge load of little things done. Ok got to get back to work.
Wow you gals are all in the final stretch now :yelclap: Im keenly keeping an eye on you all :wave:
DM sorry to hear about the GD. Please follow the doctors orders to the letter. Choc will still be available after the babies are born :laughing:
:( Ok Mrs Mermaid:laughing:i will do as im told.
Hi Bubbs....Yeh i think having twins just drains you coz you tend to get heavy quick.But good idea to request a iron BT.Yeh i have everything for the babies now,what i dont have is a elect breast pump or a baby monitor but im not in a rush for them yet.Haha its cool how you know the exact date of your shower i think its good that way you can prepare a bit hehe.
Hi My3boys....Yeh its not long everything is coming to a end hey,its only 7 weeks until my babies will be born and thats if i get that far who knows.Hows your back been lately?
Hi Kimmy.....Would love to see some nursery pics:D
Dearmum - I bet u can't wait for the next 7 weeks to go by...i hope that u do hold it out till then though.
I can't wait till I have a set date...but won't know until maybe our scan but my obs would like me to get to 35 weeks without any issues which for me is 1st week of December...seems AGESSSSSSSSSS AWAY :sleeping::dizzy:
i had so much trouble getting on here this morning, bloody telstra
1 more sleep to go YAY, well 2 actually i'm going to try and have a nanna nap in about 5 mins
Heather - Teeth are all good now my jaw is a little sore but oh well!
DM - Are you going to take photo's to show us? Just think once your little bubba's are here you can have a few blocks of choccie's to make up for what you had to give up!
Bubbs - Teeth are all good now thank god! I'm so excited it's not even funny
My3 - He didn't just help weed the garden he got in the garden and started digging in the dirt with his hands, he was so dirty but it was so cute to watch
Mrs M - I'm not i still have 22wks to go
I'm sooooooooooooo excited!
Well I was planning to get on here and have a long winded post but all of a sudden Im quite tired. Well I have been all day, bu tnow that I have stopped Im feeling it.
Had my appointment today. I was much happier about the midwives today. I got the quiet one again, and she seemed a bit more chirpy and I felt more comfortable. She had a trainee with her who was tying to find babies heart beat while head nurse was filling out paper work. Trainee could find heart beat and was looking alittle worried. I wasnt, I had just felt bubba give me a few kicks about a minute before, and I knew he was just playing hide and seek! Anyway after some time both midwives were able to find his heart beat. It was 153 bpm when I had my scan last week, and today was 140 bpm. Is it normal to drop that much? Well I think bubba had fallen asleep, and at my scan he was playing and kicking so that might have something to do with it.
Bubbs- thanks for the good luck, think it worked....
DM- I bet you felt a little shook up this morning after that dream! I dreamt last night that bubba was about 3 years old, wanted something in this shop we were in and decided he wanted a 'fat boy' motorbike. When I said no he proceeded to chuck a wobbly in the shop and threw himself on the ground. I was just about to go crook at him when DH stepped in before I could say anything. I was cranky because I felt DH was under-mining me.:laughing:
oooo dear, was going to do a few more personals but beautiful :sunshine: day has turned to horrible :gloomy: day, and I have left rugs off. Thunder rolling in, or could that be pucka?
noahsmum it wasnt telstra i think it was this site as i had trouble too this morning trying to access the site. i am with optus and i could access other sites fine just not this one.
dearmum i am paying $250 for the 3d pics and 4d dvd but i am getting the most expensive package. there is a $200 package also and i am not 100% sure if there is a cheaper package.
my3boyz i will post up some pics when i get a chance to put them into photobucket.
heather - it wasn't just this site i couldn't access facebook or any other site that wasn't australian, i'm just glad it's all fixed! How is your nursery coming along
heather - it wasn't just this site i couldn't access facebook or any other site that wasn't australian, i'm just glad it's all fixed! How is your nursery coming along
guess we were both having a different internet problem.
nursery is finished, cant paint walls or anything so it is pretty boring. pictures are posted a few pages back.
heather - That's right i remember now. I would forget my head if it was screwed on! Are you already for Tyler's arrival now?
Back again. Thought I would feed up before the storm came in earlier, no such luck. I got saturated! So it wan not the army's tanks at Pucka after all:no: Well it ment for an earlier night in, came in and had a shower, so snuggy and warm now. DH wont be home for some time yet, so no point starting dinner now.
I bought a pregnancy excercise DVD the other day. Not normally my thing but it was only $1 from Cheap As Chips. And since no health pro has been able to give me some safe excercise tips, I thought it couldnt hurt. So I came in after my shower today and watched it, from the comfort of the couch with a mug of hot malted milk in my hand.:D When I get the chance and not so sore I will do it though.:p
NM- What did they end up doing with your teeth?
NM- What did they end up doing with your teeth?
They gave me a filling in the hope that it will do the trick if it doesn't then i need to get it pulled out after the baby is born
NM yay :smiliedance: one more sleep....can't wait to hear who Noah is going to be a big brother to!!
Hey honeys!! sorry no personals tonight but YAY for tomorrow NM!!!!
Here are some pics of our baby nursery!!!!!:smiliedance::smiliedance::smiliedance :
:yelclap:You guys have done a wonderful job with the nursery,i love the wall colour:Dvery boyish.They are lucky boys getting a big room like that.
Im still in progress but hope to be finished soon,i will post some pics once finish.
Now im still waiting on "THE" belly shot:p
Just a quick one...
Good Luck NM with your scan, it is today or tomorrow? I do hope your bubba parcipates unlike mine did for a few months.
Meliko - you nursey looks wonderful, The stripes are amazing. We have decided not to do a new nursey just going to move DS into his new room and go with the theme we had, Zanzibar which is the jungle theme, not very girlie but we have already just done DS room with a car theme and I dont really feel like stripping a whole nursey and starting again, I will try and post some pics of our rooms and a belly shot on the weekend!
Hi to everyone else :wave:.
Morning girls! I have been really slack, have been on the other thread some of the time.. Wow Meliko I love your nursery!! It looks awesome! Love the walls they are really cool... Hope everyone has been doing well - I have to go and get some brekky then going shopping with mum.. be back later on.
NO MORE SLEEPS YAY.. I'm so excited!!
meliko - Your nursery looks amazing!
DM - I can't wait to see your piccs
good luck today NoahsMum - can not wait to hear your news :yelclap:
NM - U ARE FINALLY HERE... :smiliedance:
Can't wait to hear what u'll be having...let us know as soon as u can.
Meliko - That is one gorgeous nursery...i love the simplicity of it but its adorable. Thanks for sharing the pics...how exciting. U're all set for the babies arrival...its awesum. :thumbsup:
Dearmum - Looking forward to seeing ur nursery as well...how exciting. :yes:
Zoe = How are u doing today hun? Did u manage to get working with the exercise dvd?? I saw one too but didn't end up buying it...hmmm. maybe i should.
Hope the rest of u are doing well...feels like its fairly quiet in here lately...
I am just very thankful it is friday today...can't wait to get out of here and sleep in a little.
We went to baby Kingdom last night to get a feel of the three prams that we were keen on:
Peg Perego Twin Aria 50/50 - I really like it actually...cute little colour pram. Looked spacious for storage and easy to move around.
Valco - the new egg shape one - I liked that too but felt the sun hood material was a little too soft, but the storage capacity was great too...easy to move as well.
Maclaren Twin Techno - This wasn't bad either but it didn't have a bar in the front. Not too sure if its an important feature to have or not but yes was much more stronger then the peg perego as it is aluminium but i felt that it didn't look that neat...i mean like it looked a little messy the pram but DH is still much more keen on the Maclaren. Am still hesitant. I don't know...i think because of its look i don't feel too comfortable. I want something chic.
Dearmum - Which one did u get?
Jojo - Which one are u thinking of?
There are mixed reviews for Maclaren and Peg Perego...i've heard that peg perego is good but the storage tends to sag after a while with the weight...
but other than that not much issues...
Weekend plans are to go looking at baby items. :yes: :yelclap:
hello lovely ladies ..
Meliko honey, your nursery is gorgeous, you have done a great job on the painting and their little cradles are just adorable .. can't wait to see photos of babies in those cradles :yelclap:
dont you keep us waiting to day NM :rolleyes: - the build up and excitement has been shared by us all and we want to know blue or pink ..
dearmum - how you doing sweet ?
JCR - I love the zanibar, friends of ours have it for their little boy but it could just as easily be a little girls setting .. it is animals and who doesn't like animals .. apaprently you can't buy that design anymore either .. we looked around and were going to get one, regardless of not knowing what colours our babies are ...
kathy - it is hard to keep up with multiple threads .. we understand :yes: I post occasionally in others .. just saying hi or if I am watching progress of someone I have cycled with before .. but there is no way I could post personals in other threads .. this is my "home". Hope you are well ... enjoy your shopping ...
Zoe - let us know what that DVD is like .. is it Yoga or Pilates or something ? I really need to get something, I walk .. but that is not enough
MMama - hello lovely, hope you and your precious boy are well ... how is the prep going for the move .. Qld weather has been fantastic for Spring ... but I can not wait for the heat of summer to be here .. love it !
Bubbs - we went and checked out some stuff last night as well ... I am really torn between prams .. DH and I have looked at the Valco, Peg Perego, City Series, Mountain Buggy .. and some other brands that didn't cut it - but haven't seen any MCLarens in our tracks. We did like the Peg Perego, but last night we saw the Steelcraft, 3 wheeler .. looks similar to the PP Aria with boot covers and stuff BUT it only has three wheels and they are pump up - but weighs more. So ... we are thinking now, we might deal with the extra weight (lifting in / out cars) and go the big wheels cause they provide a smooooother ride for babies :yes: PLUS, the steelcraft is solid and only 439 compared to some others over 1000 !! Plus the place we were at last night (Belly 2 Baby) had Cots we loved and they will do a discount package deal plus give us a couple months free rental on capsules if we laybuy our car seats with them (they will also fit the capsules and car seats free of charge !). So .. when we know if our babies are pink or blue or one of each, we are going to go in and put a list together and they are going to do a special quote for us. Their cots are 299 with mattress, solid timber in dark stain or white - that is a bargain !!
:wave: to everyone else .. :smiliedance: it's Friday .. hope everyone has a lovely weekend planned ...
Sorry i've been a little vage of late, I do think of you all:hugs:
I have had the flu AGAIN, yesterday i stayed in bed till about 3pm, today I feel a little better. Which is fantastic as my DS turned 17 on Tuesday and is having a party tomorrow, so I have shopping to do today!!
IT makes my day when I come on and see how well everyone is doing..
Well, now Dylan has turned I think my body is splitting in half:laughing: my hips just don't work (no joke) my pelvis just hurt, my back seems to have just gone and my poor skin is streached to breaking point...(and I still have only put on 4kgs) BUT I'm just going to love these last few weeks and enjoy the sleep that I am getting.. I'm now up at 5am and sleep doesn't come much after that:ecomcity::rolleyes:
I have also stopped buying for Dylan I think anything else is just going over board..
I decided that i'm just going to go with a car seat, i may live to regret that later..
My pram is a Valco Everest.
I will try and take some pics of the room today, see how I go for time...
Well I better shower..
Take care ladies
Meliko- I love your nursery pics it looks fantastic:yelclap::yelclap:
I love the pics of the change tables, mine has 2 big draws and everything is hidden.. Still looks empty to everyone else:laughing:
must take pics:wave:
OH.. and come back NM I want to know as well!!!:smiliedance::goodvibes:
hello Kimmy .. you poor love, you don't sound very comfortable .. :hugs: .. hope your DS enjoys is party tomorrow .. and make sure you dont over do it ..
NM......:smiliedance:Yay the day has finally come WOOHOO!! i will be popping my head in here to see what your havn:D
Hi Bubbs....Awww there is alot of choice for prams hey,bet you had fun.I went for the Valco one from Toyrus its not the round Valco one,you will see mine at Kmart its cream& black i just thought its good enough for the price.My hubby wanted the Peg one but nah i didnt want to spend $550.I have everything now and im so ready for my babies hehe.
Hi Jojo.....Hmmm:detective:sounds like your getting a real bargin from that baby shop gosh $299 including matteress is fantastic.Iv spent $1562 so far and thats got me 2 xbed cotts,2x bassinettes,2x carseats,1 x timber change table,2 x matteress,1 x pram, but the spending continues with there room:rolleyes:
Babe when is your scan again?
Hi JCR....Yep i agree the animal theme will still go with a little girl,cant wait to see your pics.
Hi Kathy...Babe how many weeks are you now?
Hi Maorimama.....Babe enjoy your weekend away its going to be a lovely family time.
Well ladies i have been very good staying away from chocolate i have just been drinking diet cokes and taking off the cream & jam from my cakes.Now cant go cold turkey:p
Its fathers day on Sunday what is everyones plans?
Jojo - Just some friendly advice on the pram - I asked the ladies in the multiples thread what they were using with twins...there were a whole range of different ones that they all each preferred...but I have been advised that not to use a three wheeler as there is a chance for it to tip.
I realy liked the mountain buggy and what it offered but when I went to see it last night, i didn't like the fact that u couldn't sit a baby straight up wtih back support as the recline only went to a certain point...but it was just toooo bulky. na not my choice.
Yeah Steelcraft was a good pram...
DH is tossing between peg perego and maclaren and I am tossing between three. :D
Oh yes and what i didn't like about the peg perego was the fact the wheels looked very tiny...SO thinking of that am keen on valco now...or Maclaren.
I think i'll just do a coin toss between the two best ones and go for that.
Thats an awesum deal u have there.
I told DH that i wanted to hire a baby capsule but he is just not keen anymore...he's saying that he rather buy as he doesn't know how clean it will be and how many have used it and whether its safe or not...he goes i rather just buy two capsules and then later we can give one to my sis and one to my sis in law when they have their bub and then later sell it on ebay...
Oh yes and we are also deciding to go for two cots and two bassinets or just two cots...
:dizzy: - gonna go mad one of these days and we've just STARTED.
Dearmum - Good on u for being away from chocky and all other naughty sweet food...keep it up hun.
Kimmy - Oh u poor thing...sounds like u have it tough there but then again I am feeling all those things that u are feeling now...and am only 22wks3days...i have a very longgggggg way to go. :hissy: looking forward to seeing pics of DYLAN's Nursery...
GGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR :hair: .. sometimes bubhub and it's "features" drive me nuts ... I just type out this big post .. and poof - gone !
take 2 !
Dearmum - we have 3 sleeps to go ... Monday 10:30 is our scan and we CAN NOT wait to see our peaches again ... :smiliedance:
Bubbs - yep, we have reservations about the 3 wheelers as well ... you should see my DH in the shops, he burns around the shops with these prams, trying is best to flip, tip and topple them over .. I just stand back and let him go :laughing: so who knows what we are going to end up with .. tooo many choices
Kimmy - how have you only put on 4kgs .. I am 19 weeks and put on 4kgs ALREADY .. god help me when I am 30+ weeks .. oh well .. live in ignorance, my belly will be so large I wont be able to see the number of the scales, I will just tell myself a number that makes me happy .. :laughing:
Jojo :laughing: :laughing: :laughing: ur DH is classic.
Yeah its best to try it around the store...but u need weight on it.
I saw a little kid yesterday and felt like putting her on there and going for a ride.
am sure we'll get there in the end...:yes:
A nursery question - Has anyone seen any micky mouse or those disney wall papers or stickers or manchester on mickey mouse for the nursery?
I think thats the theme I would like to do for the nursery...a very walt disney type thing...with pluto, mickey, minnie, donald...etc
If u happen to see anything anywhere, can you please let me know as I am very keen.
If its not that theme then I will go for either Winnie the Pooh or Snug as a bug theme...thats cute too... :bee:
Ok, ok I have done it.. I have taken photos of Dylan's room.. Please don't laugh at it's emptyness, no his bed isn't made yet :o
ok now this one is 1 side of his 3 sided built in wardrobe.. just so you understand my shopping habit:laughing:
Told you it was EMPTY!!!!:yes:
Hello you gorgoues preggie girls,
I always read and keep an eye on you all here, it is so lovely to see how you are all doing.
BUT I just wanted to say Meliko that the first piccie of the three cots cracked me up...that is just precious.
Best of luck to you all in the coming weeks/months.
Ladies ... not sure, but I THINK I just felt my babies move :yelclap: .. I think I have been feeling it on and off all week but more obvious now that it is my peaches doing their flips and kicks ... can only feel it low (as one placenta is anterior and must be higher) but it surely is an amazing feeling ... I was wondering how long it was going to take my precious peaches to say "hi mummy" ...
:wave: SpottheOcelot ..
Kimmy .. nursery is groegous .. love the name on the wall ..
Kimmy - Ur nursery is so cute and so colourful. I love the colours.
U're all set for Dylan's arrival...
U ladies are giving me some very fantastic ideas... for when i get down to doing our nursery...:p
Jojo - Yup thats ur little peaches. I felt my first "real" kick at 19 weeks too...and am now constantly feeling it. It is great...great to know that they are doing well...although my left side i have an anterior placenta too so don't feel that bubba much btu right is full on kicking me on my bladder...JOY JOY :o :p
NM: YAY!! Have fun seeing bubba today. Hope you get to see if you are having pink or blue! :smiliedance:
Meliko: OMG!!!! You nursery looks absolutely fabulous!!!! Oh the babies are going to absolutely love their room!!! :thumbsup:
JCR: Looking forward to seeing your pics when you get the chance to post them. I think an animal theme is good for both boys and girls :yes:
Kimmy: How awful to have the flu again. Have fun shopping for your DS’ 17th birthday. Hope you guys have an enjoyable day tomorrow. I can not believe that you have only gained 4 kg this whole pregnancy. That is amazing! I have gained 2 kg over the past 4 weeks and my weight gain seems to picking up pace as well! WOW Dylan’s room looks lovely!!! He is so lucky to be getting a room like that!!! :yelclap:
Dearmum: Good on you for staying away from chocolate. I can not wait to see what your nursery looks like. It also sounds like you have most things needed for the arrival of your bubbas :yelclap:
Bubbs: I am so glad that I don’t have to worry about buying lots of the big ticket items. Sounds like you have some tough decisions to make.
Jojo: YAY on feeling those first movements!!! They will get stronger as the weeks go by and soon your DH will be able to share in the marvel of your babies saying “Hi” to you!!! I have gotten around the problem of losing posts by typing things out in word first and then copying a pasting my post in. I was sick of losing loooonnggggg big posts so started doing it this way :D
Moarimama: How are things going? Still boring as usual (although that is a good thing).
Kathy: Nice to hear from you. Hope all is well with your pregnancy.
Zoe: Wow you are such a good girl buying an exercise video. i am so lazy and tired and have no motivation to exercise at all.
Heather: Have fun seeing Tyler tomorrow at your scan. If I were having a 4d scan i would also be getting the most expensive package. it will be worth it when you get to see you bubbas facial expressions.
Crystar: Are you still reading? I know yo have your morph scan already. how did it go? Haven't heard from you in a while and hope that all is going well.
Man you gals are putting me to shame! I don’t have a nursery set up for this bubba at all. He will be staying in our room until he is old enough to share a room with DS1. I am so envious and you gals are all so arts and crafty with your room ideas as well!
AFM: I went for my 30 week OB appointment today. Things are looking good and I have been given the all clear to have a VB!!! YIPPPEEE!!!!! Baby is measuring at about 1.8 kg so he has gained a whopping 810g over the past 4 weeks! He is also head down with spine on the left so I am half way there to getting him in the right position for birth. Although Ob said that bubba can turn back round at any time. However, I have also gained 2 kg in the past 4 weeks so my rate of weight gain seems to be picking up. So much for not gaining too much weight this pregnancy. Next appointment is in 3 weeks!
My little bubba is quite the little fidget but my scan was done within half hour i was so surprised..
hehehe love a little suspense
Kimmy - I love Dylan's room it looks fantastic! Just a little bit of shopping i see LOL
Jojo - It really is an amazing feeling isn't it feeling bubbas move around
My3 - Glad to hear all is well with your bubba!
Well i'm very excited (and a little shocked) to tell you all that i am having a little GIRL...
DH doesn't know as yet i am making him wait until he gets home to watch the DVD
NM: :yelclap: Congrats on your little girl. You lucky duck to be having one of each!!!!! I am so happy for you. The girls are starting to catch up in this thread! :smiliedance: :smiliedance: LOL on making your DH lie in suspense until he gets home today! :D
noahsmum congratulations on your little girl.
we need more girls to even up the tally.
my3boyz glad to hear your appt went well and you have been okay'd for a vb.
that is interesting that the baby can turn at anytime as little tyler is head down currently. i wonder if he is going to stay that way:fingerscrossed:.
meliko your nursery with the 3 cradles is so cute. when i saw it i was just like awwwwwwwwww.
kimmy sorry to hear of the flu, hope u feel better soon.
dylans room is coming along nicely, i cant say i have ever seen a change table like that before with the draws.
your spending looks worse than mine lmao.
happybirthdayto your ds hope he enjoys his:party:.
jojo sounds like that is your bubbas kicking.
how exciting, it will be even more exciting when dh feels it.
bubbs wow are u actually working today? you have posted a lot today.
as for the disney themed stuff i would try somewhere like spotlight maybe or if you buy stuff online you could try ebay or something.
dearmum you are having your cake and eating it too hahaha.
hello to everyone else i hope everything is well with everyone.
afm just waiting til tomorrow scan woo hoo.
will put up pics when i get a chance.
have an exellent weekend.
heather: Sorry I should have been more specific. In second and subsequent pregnancies the baby can turn back more easily as the uterus has already been stretched before. It is less common for a bub to turn back the wrong way if it is your first (deosn't mean that it doesn't happen but it is definately less common when its your first).
I'm still in shock! Girls are always out numbered in the IVF threads! I'm having a gender scan in 2 weeks just to double check.. Maybe then it will sink in
My little bubba
NM - CONGRATULATIONS ON UR LITTLE GIRL NM...that is awesum. Now u get to have one of each... :yelclap: :smiliedance:
Am sure it'll all start to sink in...i was in shock to hear i was having two boys but now am used to the idea of having two boys around.
My3boys - Glad to hear u have the all clear for VB...that is just great news. I bet u can't wait to have it out now.
Dearmum - Do u know if urs is going to natural or C-section??? When do u get to find out how u will be having yours?
Heather - I am physically at work but my minds not here. So yes have been posting alot. :p
Can't wait to see ur scan pics...how exciting for u.
congrats NM ... well you got the shock you didn't expect .. your poor DH .. keeping him in suspense .. love it :laughing:
Sorry haven't posted in a while. This is gona be long!
Bubb - Hope you have your sugar level under control and no more hot flushes. LOL about the babyshower. Just act surprised, its nice she's doing it. I hope you get lots of goodies.
NM - Wow a girl. Congratulations! What a big shock for you though. Now one of each is lovely. I hope your teeth are all sorted now and not giving you any more issues
Jojo - Sweet about your DH's hand on your belly. My DH started to feel mine about 3 weeks after i felt the first movement. Now it jumps and makes my belly move, he just watches it!
Zoe - Too bad about selling the horses but that girl sounds like a nightmare. I wouldn't want her having my horse (if i had one) so yeah tell her its sold already.
Meliko - I just love the nursery and the colours. Fantastic and very creative. THe bassinettes are so cute too. I have 1 in brown almost the same but the canopy is from the side. They are the sweetest. Good luck in carrying them til 36 weeks, i am sure you'll get close given you've had no issues so far.
Kl4tp - 7 weeks to go - so exciting for you! Your nursery is lovely. I like the bob the builder theme and the little shelves. Wow you have bought a lot of clothes LOL
DM - Shame about the diabetes. GLad the bubs are a good size though and that you had some quality time with your daughter
Kimmy - You poor thing. 4 kilos is good. I have only gained 2 kilos so far. We might both have small babies. Not so much of the ouch factor!
My3 boyz - Yay on the vbirth. SO pleased for you. Good his head is down but don't worry if it turns. My friend's kept turning in the last 3 days even though the ob said there wasn't enough room to, she still turned. Good weight gain for bubby too.
AFM - Well i have had a day i wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.
After a night in agony after 3 days of on off pain, I spent 4 hours in maternity being checked over.Baby is fine, in fact she said the trace was excellent for 23 weeks.Waited for ob to see me and have been told i have pelvic girdle syndrome and have to wear a brace. Have to see a special physio on Monday now. Anyway as no parking in morning and now with brace on, walked huffing up the hill in pain, got in car and reversed a little and bang! i had reversed over a drain pipe hidden in road and car was hovering and stuck fast. I just lost it, burst into tears and nearly fell over just looking at my car thinking i had well and truly f*^ked it. Luckily 2 heros - lovely tradies- came to the rescue with bricks and wood and between them reversed up and over the drainpipe and saved my car. It is scratched badly underneath but the guy said no need to take it to mechanic as its only cosmetic. Can't even see anything on top. After the shock, i went and bought them a 6 pack each and am ok now but very tired. In the midst of all this, bubs just kicked away, no worries there!
oh ibb .. you poor thing :hugs: .. dont you just hate it when things snowball and you just melt down ... I love that two strangers came to your rescue, shows that there are still considerate people in the world .. hope your evening is better than your day and glad that your bubbs is doing well .. hope your pain becomes more managable with the girdle and some physio .. take care ... :goodvibes:
:yelclap:NM......Oh what a lovely suprise:cloud9:congratulations now you have one of each.Enjoy buying all the lovely pink things.
Hi Kimmy.....Awww i like Dylans room and i love how you have made his name on the wall.Just countdown now all we need is the baby.
Hi Bubbs....Hmmm not sure about if i need a c/s or not they havent talked about it to me yet.I think its a case of how the babies are on that day if they are head down then i will have natural but if there like they are transverse then it will be c/s.They dont seem worried about how there lying ATM because they still have lots of room in there and they can turn anyday.
Hi Heather.....Yay its your 3d scan day,cant wait to see your little buba.
Hi Ibb.....OMG what a day for you,dont ya hate those days were nothing goes right.Im so happy to hear that bubs is ok coz thats the main thing hey.Hows your dad these days?
Hi Jojo...How exciting when you feel those first kicks ahhh it only gets better they become stronger and soon you will figure out who is kicking you.Yay so your scan is set for Monday yeh?
Hi My3boys.....Glad to hear your little boy is fine.Are you on fortnightly visits?
Howdy to the rest of you lovely ladies:wave:
Well here i am eating weetbix with no sugar boohoo i miss sugar,i didnt realise how much sugar i was eating before coz most things have sugar in them.Yeh i must be honest i feel like sneaking in a chocolate bar.I have still been getting my fix with diet cokes and stuff but gosh im craving chocolate.
Well im so hoping today my DH will help paint the border,lets hope he doesnt need nagging hehe.Ok im off be back soon XX
Oh ladies thats my youngest DD in the pic!
Morning Gorgeous Mummies to be :wave:
NM a beautiful daughter for you that is great news....Noah is going to have a little baby sister to adore. So happy for you hon.'
Dearmum I can't eat cereal with sugar...has always made me feel sick...you'll get used to it. Hopefully it won't be long till your nursery is finished and you can post some pics for us.
Kimmy love Dylan's nursery, it's gorgeous. I am in the process of doing Kaizer's name. I brought some wooden letters off ebay and am decorating them using scrapbooking paper and embellishments....will post once done.
Ibb :hugs:gosh you are going through alot of late. Hope that pain doesn't cause you too much distress. Do you mind me asking what symptoms you had as I am pretty sure I have the same thing but my Dr just keeps saying that it's normal pregnancy pain but I have never had this before. I am constantly achy down there, my hips feel like they seize up on me and sometimes moving is unbearable.
Bubbs great idea to get the advice from some of the multiple mummies....it's so hard making decisions on what to buy for our little ones and sometimes we don't end up even liking our choices....good luck with it all.
M3B yep still a fairly boring journey for me although I'm not complaining. Just the usual happening here apart from pelvic pain. Yay for you getting to have a VB, and you have only put on minimal weight gain....I've put on 9kg so far and it's rapidly climbing :laughing:.
Meliko I adore your boys' nursery....it is simply gorgeous.
Jojo I'm doing well thanks....I have to admit I can't wait to be back in sunny QLD. Wow the countdown is now your's.....2 more sleeps till you know what you are having :smiliedance:.
Well not much happening here....we were planning on taking the kids on a road trip South for the weekend to see some new sights, but I get really sore being cooped up in the car for too long, so we are rethinking that idea. The weather doesn't seem to promising anyway so thinking caps on.
Have a great weekend ladies :flowerz:
