    Hi shel and onion, I was there when I first fell pregnant, as I had suffered two miscarriages beforehand. You've just got to think that the odds are higher that you will have a healthy pregnancy than miscarry.

    What helped me was breaking the twelve weeks down into milestones. I got a blood test every three days until the eight week scan to check my levels were rising. I then had a scan at 6, 8, 10 and 12 weeks as well. It reassured me a gave me peace of mind for a few days after each result. Also focusing on being in the moment, enjoying each day. Try not to think about the future or the past because we can't change it. Focus on each day instead. But we are here to help you, so getting your frustrations and fears out in this forum helps.

    AFM I'm now 37 weeks and three days and waiting for our little man to come. Obs appointment went well on tuesday and the head is not engaged yet so I reckon I have at least a week to go. The doctor reckons he weighs about 3 kgs now so he won't be a small baby when he's born. But we do want our boy to grow into a strapping man, so it's all good.

    Just a really quick and random question...

    Is it possible that Stress can cause pre-term labour, and How much stress would u need to be under for it to make an affect??

    Im 29wks, No signs of labour (so dont stress)

    But things are starting to become tense and stressful around here, and we COULD be possibly looking at relocating before bubby comes. Whether its locally in town, Or a complete re-location im still not sure on.....Everythings up in the air at the moment.

    We only wont be moving IF in the minutely slimly remote possibility a compulsive alcoholic agrees to limit their drinking - to a reduced amount on weekends only. Not in excess every day. They Would easily go through 25ish 1.25L Bottles of home brew each WEEK - starting at around lunch time and continuing until they go to bed daily............But i cant see that happening because they've quite openly said "Im not an alcoholic. I dont have a problem. Im going to continue to drink, and EVERYONE can just deal with it."

    Shadow- I'd say for preterm labour to be set off by strss it'd have to be A LOT of stress! I guess all I can suggest is when you can try and take some time out to destress etc just for your own sanity!!

    Hi shadow

    I think that you should try and be as stress free as possible during your pregnancy. If that means moving house or if it's too stressful to move stay where you are. Your friend or relative may not think they are an alcoholic but he has problem drinking definitely as it's affecting the people around him who care about him. Why is he drinking this much regularly. If it is to relax himself what issue in his life is making him unrelaxed that he is not addressing. Also heavy drinking causes health problems long term, so it is a bad thing anyway. My ex husband drank too much and he'd have never thought if himself as an alcoholic, but his drinking and being drunk made me miserable and being with my current husband and being so happy with him makes me realize how much I appreciate being around sober people.

    AFM I'm 37 weeks and 4 days today. We assembled the buggy today which is really funky and cool. Once it was done I had a sudden fear about having the baby. What if something goes wrong. Will I be able to look after this baby. Did anyone else feel like this just before the baby was born.

    Lucky I felt like that! A sudden anxiety! It will pass and come and go as things get closer but I think excitement overrides in the end!!

    Don't worry as soon as babu is here it's a whole different set of worries- like whAt if something happens to bub? Etc! It's amazing how much I worry something could hurt ds!!

    Hello people!

    Lucky- it sounds fairly logical that you'd get waves of anxiety at this point- fear of the unknown, big life changes etc. In my experience once the baby arrived it was all fairly calm and nice, especially in the first couple of weeks- they sleep a lot and people visit and are keen and all those sorts of good vibes breastfeeding can be a bit of a sticking point for some and obviously exhaustion but there's so much to look forward to.

    super- yeah yr right there- you suiddenly shift to being worried about the little one. Hope yours is doing splendidly.

    shadow- well i dont think stress is good at any stage- especially after the baby arrives. I hope you can reach some sort of decent outcome so you can enjoy the rest of your pregnancy.

    shel & onion- hang in there ladies!!!!! hold on tight and before you know it you will be through the first stage. remember if there's no existing or detected cause for previous m/c then this one is more likely to work than not. stats are on your side.

    how is everyone else? tasha- what's up? baby behaving?

    afm- I hit 35 weeks yesterday and really feeling it- wish i was in better shape. still got this stupid cold that is dragging me down- dont even feel like playing video games at this stage...

    Thanks super and sniper for the advice. Sometimes writing it down makes me feel better.

    Sniper I know what you mean about feeling unmotivated at the moment. With the heat, walking being a challenge there's not too much I can do. But I too am playing on the video games at mo, cos I can do it on the sofa. My game at the moment is super Mario galaxy.

    Hey all

    Shel and onion.. congrats on your bfps! I hope your journeys are problem free. I don't think the anxiety ever goes away.. theres always something new to stress over but hopefully its all smooth sailing for you both

    Luckyme.. wow not long to go now, the fear of the unknown is totally normal, once bubs arrives you would soon get yourself in to a routine and it will all come naturally and feel as though you have been doing it forever.

    Shadow.. i think if stress affected our babies too much then mine will come out needing prozac, have grey hair and a ciggy hanging out of its mouth with a severe case of the shakes! I hope things settle down for you soon

    Sniper.. wow... 35 weeks! When i think of myself time seems to be taking forever but when i look at you it seems to have flown by! I hope you start to feel better soon

    Super.. hope Ashton is doing well.. time really does fly once they arrive!

    afm.. just plodding along. Had my appointment at the early pregnancy unit on Tuesday. They done an internal ultrasound and found the stupid fibroid has grown to a 13cm mass and is filling my entire pelvis. They cancelled my appointment at the antenatal clinic and want me to go thru my specialist instead. They didnt go in to it too much, they tried phoning my specialist but he was still closed for the holidays. I see him on Thursday but im sure its going to be a just monitor it thing. They did say im at risk of preterm labour so im hoping and praying that doesn't happen. My worry is what will happen once the baby gets bigger and is putting pressure on the fibroid. Im really hoping it doesnt get any bigger. It has grown more than enough for my liking!

    Enough rambling from me, hope everybody is having a good weekend!

    just a quick one here- got a little girl in the bath and its way past her bedtime thanks to her epic 3 hour nap today in which i couldnt get any sleep whatsoever- insane moi?

    had ob appt this morning- with a different ob as mine was away- all good, my bp was great, baby measuring bang on- will be a biggish one , similar to DD. he/she is already 3.1 kg with 4.5 weeks to go. the ob didnt even want to see me next week (must admit i felt a bit ripped off- i'm meant to be on weekly appts i thought.) baby is now head down and the right was around albeit leaning to one side a bit. i was fairly sure i'd felt her/him move just after the last appt in which i was told they were breech.

    hopefully all the stuff for the new room that we did over xmas will arrive this week so we can get it together and then i can start organising clothes etc- doing some loads of washing. typically it is raining all this week- although i shouldnt complain due to the poor peeps in QLD putting up with so much at the moment.

    tasha- man you can't get a spare stressless minute can you. damn fibroid! how many weeks now? morph scan soon?

    luckyme- aaah a wii owner- i'm a ps3 hound and would be playing fallout new vegas if i had any motivation to do so whatsoever. how are you feeling now?

    shadow- how are you?

    hi to everyone else reading. GO TEAM!!!

    Really looking forward to the end point now- can't wait to get this alien out and resume normal (ha yeah right) activity.
