    Hi miss87 - back from our Heron Island island getaway! We went there two years ago, loved it with the turtles and wildlife - at the right time of year you can watch turtles lay eggs and see hatchlings - pretty amazing and you are free to roam around the island without any organisation to it - just need to be aware you are in their natural environment. Back to work next week.....


    Glad to hear your little one was so active with the morphology scan and all measurements were as expected. Did you get some more pics?? When is your due date?? Where are you booked in??

    How are you feeling these days? I have been feeling a lot better this week from the queasy point of view and managing better with food.

    When do you go on holidays for Christmas? Has both your families been supportive? It's a difficult time for us as my partner's parents ceased contact when informed of our IVF journey earlier this year, only recently has my partner been having phone contact, however, the subject of our pregnancy is not discussed. On a more positive note - wasn't it great the Civil Unions Partnership was passed in QLD!

    We live in Thorneside (near Manly/Lota - Capalaba). What about you?

    Having an easy weekend relaxing.

    Wow I will definitely have to investigate Heron Island for our next holiday! My partner LOVES turtles and would be thrilled lol.
    We got a few pics from the scan but they were boring ones, like arm bones and close up of heart, no cute ones lol.
    Glad you've been feeling better!! I have been quite nauseous lately, haven't been throwing up though. Seems to be worse when I'm at work, which really sucks.
    Christmas holidays in less than two weeks - yay!! Our families are both absolutely thrilled. This will be the first grandchild on both sides of the family, and everyone has been so supportive and great. I'm sorry to hear about your partner's family, that's really awful for her and for bubby. I'm sure they will come around once they realise how amazing your little one is!
    Yeah, we were really excited about the civil union bill - can't wait to get our piece of paper! I don't really follow politics but now I'm starting to feel like I should.
    We live in Ormeau, not too far away
    I hope your weekend is more relaxing than mine! I have to work I have been going through some horrible stuff at work - I wish I could quit or (even better) go on maternity leave 4 months early!! Feels like they are constantly watching me, trying to find mistakes to get me in trouble for. Stressful as anything and I'm starting to get panicky at the thought of having to go to work.

    Hi 2ofakind

    Welcome and congratulations! And congratulations to two! I hope your IVF journey was a short one.

    I'm 16.5 weeks now!

    How are you feeling? Hope you haven't had morning sickness. I was quite lucky in I had a general feeling all the time of being queasy and didn't feel like eating much, but no vomiting.

    Do you girls live in Brisbane?

    Cheers

    Hi jali,

    Our IVF worked first go luckily but it did take a long time to go though the process, I fortunately was quite lucky in the sense that I also experienced just queasiness too I had thrown up a few times but nothing regularly !!! We sure do live in Brisbane, we moved here about 6 months ago from the gold coast. Congrats on 16.5 weeks are you enjoying it?

    Hi and congrats on your pregnancies!! Yippee! My partner and Iloire in Brissie too and we have a little boy and are going to TTC soon. If you are looking to meet other LGBTIQ families, there is a community group called Rainbow Families Queensland that I saw on the web and fb the other day.
