Def not to early to start thinking about babymoons and showers, one of my gfs went to Malaysia at about 15 weeks along. Most of my friends went away around the 5-6 month mark. I wouldn't leave it too long if you plan to go on a long plan trip. Re baby shower I think these normally take place much closer to your due date
have been off line for a while. Been in new Zealand skiing! My 3 year old DD is now a better skier than me. Little ones are such sponges they pick up things so well.
Have just read thru the last week of thread - lots of topics! Hard to keep up,
KMVW: just read about your blood results. How distressing for you. I know the next few weeks wait will be dreadful for you but we are all here for you and thinking of you. My friend who's 39 had a similar results with all her 4 children!! And she had an amino for all 4! The actual risk of losing the baby to the amino is much lower than they quote provided you go to someone who's really good at them and who does them all the time. She reccomended taking a few days off after the test to haves strict bed rest - not sure it makes a difference- but I think after 4 she' d know. She said she watched the entire series of sex and the city! In the few days and got waited on hand and foot by her hubby.
I had another friend who had one too and the rapid test they do came back as all ok, but the more thorough diagnostic screen they did showed a chromosome translocation at number 7, - lucky for her it meant nothing to the baby health and alls fine, but I believe an amino is the only way you are going to feel ok and rest assured. The added bonus you get to find out the sex if you so desire and there'll be no confusion ( my ultrasound n DD1 they said she was a boy! - imagine our surprise when it came out as a girl!!,)- the big reason we aren't finding out this time with baby number 2.
Im thinking of you and sending you thread hugs - if there is such a thing- ..l.all our dearest thoughts and I'm crossing all legs and arms for you xxx
