    Kismet, I'm so excited, can't wait to hear, can't wait to hear!! Hope you're recovering well and enjoyed your drug induced sleep. Next is some heavy duty partying in the petri dish tonight.

    Nessie, yes Nessie, hang on to the part of you that thinks you should keep trying It sounds like a trip to Sydney would be worthwhile... at least your FS is trying to think of other things for you... the machine sounds impressive.

    JFB, so feel for you with your hips, it's just horrible. I know it's easier said than done, but can you just tell your Ob that you need (not want) baby to be out and to just schedule you in. Stamp your feet and beat your fists. Seriously, can he give you a good reason for not doing this?

    Must get back to study before little one wakes up. Work tomorrow and then only one more week and life will be back to a little more normality. Must say I've loved working with the children... it's been a real eye opener as to what I might have coming with Amberly. I've gone from working in the nursery to toddler room, kinder room and preschool room next week.

    JFB I'd just ball my eyes out. Sounds like you wouldn't have to fake the tears given the pain you're in. As for shopping, do you have a centre near you that hires those ridiculous cars you can push them around in while shopping? I use them all the time for Scarlett if I have a small amount to do. If I have a huge shop I do it at night or on the weekend and leave the kids with DH. I took the kids to the shops yesterday which was why we had such an awful day. They hate shopping and become quite feral. With 3 I can't hire a car but when Marc was in the baby bjorn it was a godsend.

    Millie yay for a . The 20 week scan is so great, half way there!

    Nessie would your FS put you on clomid? I used it for Scarlett and Marc and swear by it. I believe it really improved my egg quality. Hang in there I know how you feel

    Well much better day today. Nothing like having 2 of them out of the house to improve my mood . Ok better run 5 kids here for dinner tonight with different tastes and likes. Should be fun.

    Millie that is soooo exciting , I can't believe you are 20 weeks already! Did you find another contract?

    Alittle I take my hat off to anyone working with kids, there is no way I could do it

    Sonja I don't know much about clomid, how & when in the cycle did you use it? I'm willing to present FS with anything & I think he is happy to give anything a go.

    JFB you poor thing, whybdontbyou try a massage. I had one the week before I had Ash as I was in sooo much pain as I was still working at that stage, I still don't know how I did that.
    yep I got 7 eggs, but only 3 ended up fertilizing & only 2 made it to transfer. But you are right, I don't think to bad for a nearly 41 year old OMG can't believe I'm nearly that age.

    Ash is sooo exhausted after his full day at daycare, he didn't sleep today so pretty much hit the pillow & is out to it.I just ate a box of chickadees Oops!

    Hi Nessie

    From memory, I took clomid for only 3 or 4 days early in my antagonist cycles. I only took it twice but both times I got a BFP. The good thing about it is you don't have months and months of taking it for it to build up in your system. My FS was pretty old fashioned and refused to put me on DHEA. I don't think everyone loves clomid but it certainly seemed to do the trick for me

    A quick hospital bedside update from me - I am sure I will now finally get a chance to read back through your posts now & catch up on all your wonderful news.

    So as for well 'us' really - we had our 24 weeks scan yesterday & the boys are doing really well although we couldn't get any head shots without the others bum or knees in the way. Unfortunate my cervix had now halved in length and is below the all critical 15mm they like to see. Hence I've been admitted to hospital for at least a week of strict bed rest only (toilet breaks only) & starting steroids just incase I am going into early labour. It's my first night away from my daughter - not exactly how i planned it - and DF is now on single parent duties. Thank god he has been looking after her one day a week & has some idea of what needs to be done! Hopefully I'll be home in a week but will still be on bed rest & with no family nearby not sure how we will manage - but we have to :-). Other alternative of 12 weeks in hospital or babies at 25 weeks is obviously less enticing. Will keep you posted from the bedside!

    Hope everyone is well....

    x Grace

    Grace - so sorry to hear you are in hospital, and while it is not ideal and a huge pain in the a$#@, at least you know your boys are being given their best chance. I am sure you also deserve to put your feet up, hope you have a good book!

    Millie congrats on the 20 weeks scan - it's so good isn't it, just to see the bubba and to feel that bit more 'real'. A beautiful little girl for you so exciting!

    31 weeks for me this weekend, and still ridiculously excited, well but dealing with indigestion/heartburn ... a mild annoyance - give me an excuse to drink milo I guess! We did birthin classes last weekend and the final class tomorrow, so feeling like we are getting to the business end of things!

    JFB thinking of you and hoping you get that baby out soon

    best wishes to all.

    Grace - I've got my fingers crossed that the twins stay put for several weeks, and everything starts to sort itself out. It must be incredibly stressful for you both as you juggle your daughter's care, and everything else in your life. Try to put yourself first, as I'm sure she is well looked after by DF

    Kismet - Any news???

    Fiona - I'm glad your pregnancy is going well and you have hit 31weeks. Every week just makes you feel more reassured, and I know all about that indigestion/heartburn. I use Rennie when necessary (can get it in Coles) and avoid all sorts of foods Enjoy the next few weeks as it all gears up

    JFB - Looks like H is set on those early mornings. I can't imagine how busy you are going to be with no 2's arrival Maybe H's 'big brother' mode will click in, and he will be your little helper. Good luck over the next few days.

    Hello lovelies!

    Millie - woohoo congratulations! a pink one! can't wait for you to meet your little princes, enjoy every fabulous moment of your pregnancy.

    Grace - hope your cherubs stay put, enjoy the rest if you can.

    AFM - 4 eggs, 3 fertilised and the wait has begun. Just a quicky for me today as I have received devastating news about my niece and her unborn baby, too upset atm so will be back later once I've gathered myself.
