    Morning all. Up since 4am! And Sam seems fine!!!!! Cheeky monkey.

    Digby - I hope either bubs is making an early arrival or you got some rest. I didn't have BH with any of my pregnancies, sounds uncomfortable. How sweet of DD to pack a hosy bag, I bet she's nearly as excited as you are! I remember P & J 1st cuddles of Sam, they were in awe.

    Waiting - Sounds like you & P had good birthdays. Looking forward to that drink, haven't had any adult time in a looong while. Deciding to try for another baby can actually be a little scary, you'll know when the right time is.

    Winzy - Hope you're over your fright.

    Lisa - Well done on all your cooking! I have to admit S had bought stuff for a long time. Now he joins us for most meals, or has a slight variation. Hope C goes well at CC and you get to sort things out for work.

    MG - Have fun seeing bubs on Wed.

    Rach - I know I've probably asked, when are you due? Hope all is well.

    LM - Poor little Max. Remember us both saying how tired the boys were on Mon, we must have known something was up. Hope your milk supply settles, sounds painful! Hope you got some more sleep last night.
    I hope your 1st day home without DH goes smoothly and there's none of this.

    Hope everyone has a nice day. I'm trying (again!!!) to lose some weight, it's really starting to depress me. I last more than 2 days. Geez, could I use the word "hope" any more.

    kiwi - i was up then too, but not with any babes, just stressing mt head off about today.......

    Waiting - you know i'll just say go for it it is daunting, i dont know how many messages i sent to kiwi stressing about the TTC #2 thing, its normal and natural to feel this way - HUGE changes to your life, but i wouldnt send them back and am so glad it turned out the way it did, although you have the advantage of a bigger age gap smart cookie

    Liv - glad C is powering along, just like max, your back will be WRECKED from lugging him around before he's 1

    Well - first day of flying solo here and its all good - max still off and now misses daddy too but have only had two meldowns all day so far - hes asleep now and should stay down till 3ish. twins woke separately this morning so had ned down again when annabelle woke - they are both also down now so i have had a sit down coffee and lunch, 2 loads of washing done and put through the dryer, dinner bubbling away in the slow cooker - am i good or what Not to worry, sure it will all go to sh!t when max wakes up and sees daddy not here

    Waiting - I agree - GO for it!! i don't think we are ever really ready! I had a massive "OMG - what was I thinking?" when I got my BFP, and that settled pretty quickly. i know it's going to be tough, but lots of women cope with more than i have on my plate. Good luck - it's a hard decision o make.

    Hope everyone is well. Sorry for being terrible with my postings!

    Digby - the BH sound hideous!! Hope things go well for you!! - any other niggles yet???


    Spencer has got another cold!! Where he got it from I have no idea, but we got to the GP and he has an ear infection too, so on anti bugs, and I have given him a dose of prednisolone for his wheeziness and he's getting back on the ventolin too. Hoping he will improve by tomorrow, as I'm meant to be meeting another BHer who is over from Texas, and I REALLY don't want to have to cancel. - selfish - I know. Of course Spencer's health will be the primary focus though ...

    Hi ladies sorry for no personals today just wanted to fill you all in quickly with my appt. Not happy Jan.
    Before I start, last night was pretty much the same as the night before. This time I woke with pains @ 2am & had them ongoing. (they've stopped around 12.30pm) anyway, it's hard eneough to get to sleep with the itching & for the 2nd night in a row it seems once I got to sleep I then wake for different reasons.
    Anyway, had a different specialist today who went against all I was told by the specialist I saw 2 weeks ago. He won't induce me, nor would he do an internal to see how things are going. Basically just told me to come back next Monday for another checkup & said the contractions I'm having ATM could go on for another week or so!! WTF?? I'm starting to think it's going to go on this way until week 42 when they will have to induce me. He disagreed with the other specialist who wanted me to be induced this week because of babies size. I'm feeling sooooo angry with myself & DH ATM that we couldn't afford private cover. I'm sure if we had the same specialist each time things would be better. Seeing someone different everytime is ridiculous.
    Sorry for the me post & thanks to those who spent the time reading xxx

    Digby - oh your post made me so angry. Reminded me of when i had max publicly, one OB said i would be induced the following tuesday and when i went for my final appt that tuesday had someone different who said there was no need - i however DID NOT take no for an answer - i'd psyched myself up and i wasnt leaving without my baby dammit. Turns out his cord was down and i was already in labour just didnt feel it yet - if my waters had broken at home it could have been catastrophic - so im glad i pushed for my induction. Just cause you are public doesnt mean you dont get a say -how many weeks and days are you now? - if your close to or over 38 i'd be making them induce you, but if under 38 i would sit on it a bit longer even if it means you are uncomfy and miserable for a bit longer, sorry to say that, dont mean to sound like a meanie but just cause but is big doesnt mean her suck etc will be nice and strong when/if she arrives early, and after the feeding issues we had with the twins i wouldnt want that for anyone xx

    Lulusmum.....I agree totally with what your saying, & yes bigger bubs are DEFINATLY easier to feed. I'm actually 38 wks & 2 days & the specialist I saw 2 weeks ago said he wanted me induced at 38 & a bit weeks!! Well, I'm finally there now but nope have to wait. I know it won't be too much longer I just hate the fact when your public you don't get the chance to build up a relationship with your specialist as you hardly have one & when you do it's a different one with a different approach each time. When I got home I bursted into tears, think Im just feeling a wee bit hormonal mixed with let down by the hospital & fed up & sleep deprived/itchy. Grrrrrr

    Digby - How upsetting and frustrating for you! It is annoying how you see someone different every time. I was lucky and built up a relationship with the medical complications Dr, who I saw nearly every week from about 12wks. His main concern was me! So I pushed my view when I felt I needed to. You are allowed a 2nd opinion, ring and ask for one.
    When I went public in NZ I had the same midwife every time, never even saw a specialist until I was at the hospital being induced. I think NZ midwives, nurses in general have more powers IYKWIM.
    I'm sorry things didn't go how you wanted, as I said ask for a 2nd opinion. In the mean time capsules of evening primrose up the vayjj are supposed to help soften the cervix.
    Vent away honey.

    MG - I hope S is on the mend soon.

    P & J are home........................

    Hi all!

    digby.....man that makes my blood boil! dont take this the wrong way but i guess that's precisely why i chose a private ob....just so i would see the same person every time! I can't believe how much they've F*ckd you around and they dont seem to listen to you! geez it makes me so angry! You put your foot down and tell them what YOU want to happen cos it's YOUR baby! Far out! Hope you are ok!

    LM.....sounds like the twins are nearly sleeping better than charlie! ! good work supermum!! hope max feels better soon! Sounds like you've had a awesome first day! hope it stays that way! Did you say you're already thinking about returning to work???

    MG...hope spencer feels better soon too! have fun meeting with the texan lady!!

    Waiting......you do what you want to mate! You make the decision that's best for you and go for it! if you're ready then go for gold and if you're not ready then the time will come when it comes.

    Liv....well done to you and mini C!! good work with the daily walks too!

    Kiwi...sorry meant to say happy bday to P for the other day! Hope she had a lovely day! dont be too down on yourself about your weight. it's harder to lose it during winter as all we want to do is eat to keep ourselves warm! Just try to be healthy as a start and that's the first step - not that i think you need to lose weight!
    Oh, but i guess i can talk.....not! last weekend (or was it weekend before? can't remember)....anyway i made a whole batch of special diet soup and said to myself and DH that we're going on a diet.....and what do i do for the first 48 hours of that 'diet'? well i binge on everything bad of course! couldn't stop myself and there was perfectly healthy fresh soup in the fridge just waiting for me!

    Hi to everyone else!

    Charlie went great at childcare today. I didn't shed a tear tho and i guess i feel somewhat upset about that. I feel like i was happy to palm off my child cos i didn't cry. Every mother i know cries when they do childcare for the first day! not me. why didn't i feel the need to cry?! . Oh well. he did really well there and i'm absolutely pleased. I may also be returning to work on June 20 instead of July 18 now so it's not too bad. just 4 weeks early. Altho i have already been paid my leave loading for all my leave and now that i need to adjust my 'leave' to cancel 4 weeks of it, i have to pay back the 4 weeks worth of leave loading!! aaaarrggghh! Altho my boss and I might just not bother with the leave amendment and just know that i'm owed 4 weeks annual leave and when i go to take it we wont fill out any forms. . I'm just thankful that i love my job and workplace and it makes going back to work easier. I just wish i felt more emotional about leaving C!
