    I wondered the same thing so I asked Dr Google and the consensus is to stay on it as the benefits far outweigh the risks. So I've kept taking it but am going to double check with my specialist on Wednesday.

    I went off metformin before I became pregnant because I wasn't tolerating it well. My FS told me though that most people who need to be on it for insulin resistance should stay on it for the first trimester, like Kellymac said, the benefits outweigh the risks. My ob wanted me to have the glucose tolerance test at 12 weeks rather than later on as he thought my risk may be higher for gestational diabetes... Funnily enough, my insulin resistance was not present at that test and my results were perfect! Apparently the hormones can balance things out. I have to have the test again at 28 weeks just to be safe.

    I would still ask your dr to be sure. You might find you dont need to be taking it if your insulin resistance was not too serious to start with.

    Hope all of you lovely preggo ladies had good Christmas'! So many temptations to resist... It'll be sooo worth it!

    Thanks! Maybe I'll phone the clinic and double check. I've not had a GTT, the FS put me on Metformin just because of PCOS.

    I had it but just thought it was cause of the metformin.... now i'm constipated. think it is just a symptom

    How was eveyone's xmas?? hope it was better than mine, brother got offended by my fb status update of "next xmas will be so much fun , we will have a little bub to spoil" he took that as i wasn't having fun, which i wasn't with the adults but my niece and nephew more than made up of it

    Had a bit of round ligament pain this afternoon, and a headache that i can't seem to get rid of could be from all the crying i did over xmas break though.

    Hi Everyone!

    Welcome Miggins and Kellymac!! Wishing you both a very smooth pregnancy!

    Violethope - I know what you mean in terms of just wanting the birth to come and be over with. I tried to read a lot, watch videos, etc and though my birth was different than expected I felt as though I had seen many different scenarios and felt like it helped me get through it. Have you thought about a doula? Mine gave me the most honest and (looking back) accurate info about what to expect from the birth and was invaluable on the day. Dh was so happy she was there too.

    Kellymac - haha - I tried One Born Every Minute a few weeks before my due date and found it a little too close to home at that point to watch.

    Ellymoe - so glad to hear you're feeling those kicks! Nothing better, huh? I loved it when she got the hiccups

    Ladydee - I can't believe how close you're getting!!! Your sister's labour sounds like a dream. I sincerely hope that it runs in the family. That said, the whole thing was such an amazing, surreal experience that even if things don't run to plan it can still be wonderful. I love the look of the BJCS for two or more - I didn't think of that when I bought mine. I am really enjoying my Bugaboo and travel system How's your nursery coming along?

    Afm - the most happy and exhausted I've ever been Madeleine turned three weeks yesterday and is such an angel. She is snuggled up on my chest in her baby k'tan right now and occasionally smiles in her sleep - it absolutely melts me. She's a great feeder and sleeper (and pooper) which is all you can ask for at this point. She's in the 90th % for her weight!

    Belly rubs to everyone!

    Hi ladies. Have a question about pain medications. This morning at about 2am after trying to sleep off a migraine for 8 hours I relented an followed the advice of Dr Google and took some panadeine. Now I'm all worried that it's going to cause some problem. Anyone else used it?

    my ob said that i could take panadeine and it wouldn't be a problem... i've had really bad headaches for the last few weeks, she also prescribed me some maxalon, and to take it with a phenergen to get some sleep both are safe during pregnancy. in saying that i took one panamax last night cause it's all i had in the house.
    Hope it goes away soon.

    been feeling really dizzy the last few days not sure what from though, had to spend yesterday lying on the couch cause i tried and pegged the washing only to feel like i was going to fall over.
    on a good note 8 days till next ob app and 22 days till we find out what we are having
