    Hi everyone!

    Hope everyone is doing well! Sorry to those with a few complications popping up already...you'd think with IVF we would have had enough trouble that the rest would be smooth sailing! If only the world worked that way.

    We've been flat out with wedding season being in full swing so minimal days off, strating to find it exhausting and have had to cut back now as I just don't have the stamina.

    How exciting that everyone's now approaching the 20 week scans! Nearly half way yay!!!

    Im just at 16 weeks and feeling much better although my blood pressure has started to increase. Started at 110/60 at 8w, 120/60 at 9w, 140/60 at 12 and yesterday had gotten up to 140/80. My OB is fantastic and so calm and said it 'could' be an indicator of BP problems but you never know so we will just take it as it comes and not worry until he tells us too. Any of you ladies had BP issues in preganancy before or had it increase this time?

    Have our 20 week scan on March 25th but won't be finding out the sex - so it'll be a suprise for us! None of my clothes fit now either but still bordering on the fat or pregnant stage but thankfully my sister has given me a stack of maternity clothes as im struggling to find any at the moment.

    I have my that everyone has a good week and is getting lots of rest xx

    Morning all,

    Good to hear the scans are going well and considering birthing options.

    *warning the following may be a little upsetting.
    Our 20 wk scan was ok in that baby is growing well but I have a low lying placenta which is manageable with a c section if it didn't move enough to give birth naturally, however now I have suggestive vasa previa. This is where the fetal vessels grow in the cervical and if I go into preterm labour and bubs is not taken out in 2-3 minutes its not good but it is also manageable in that all things going well bed rest and early hospital admission from 28-32 wks to monitor, drugs for lung development and a csection at 35wks. The good thing is the sonographer has picked it up! It's horrific for those women unaware they have vesa previa as by the time they get to hospital it's too late.
    I'm just waiting for my consultants appointment at the hospital to see what management they suggest.
    I was horrified that the doctors report from the scan only recommended a follow up scan at 32wk weeks and rung my midwife after reading lots of hospital management guides etc none that recommended this as the only course of action.
    I've been in this situation a few times now and know you have to trust your gut feelings and push and hassle for action even if they are the ones with the "dr" tag.

    Anyway fingers crossed I get a decent management plan soon

    Sorry to bad buzz the thread but needed to get it off my chest.

    Hope everyone is doing super well and purchasing up a storm??!

    Chances Have you thought of moving to a high risk OB. I am with a high risk OB and I am getting scans with every appointment. At least you know in time and what you will need to do.

    Hi Samarasmum,

    Im with mater public so I don't really have an ob and I'm currently seeking a new GP.
    I'm started out on the hospitals case and I intend to keep it up at every step, I should get my consultant appointment soon who will work out a management plan and if I'm not added as high risk then they need their heads read.

    Sorry to hear about that chances, but atleast as you say the good thing is you can be prepared.

    I'm already with a high risk ob & would recommend it. Mine is really thorough and I get an ultrasound every appointment so worth doing if you can

    Not much in my world, only a few more days until the big scan and looking forward to it..

    Hi Vivre

    Are you public or private? I'm confused as to how the health system works here lol and am finding it extremely frustrating and almost ready to pack up and go hm to NZ. Good thing is I have my consultant appointment now so hoping to make progress.

    Chances - sorry to hear about the vasa previa. Very lucky they picked it up. And fingers crossed it all goes well. Did a lot of reading about vasa previa when i was told i had placenta pevia w dd and it is apparently not a routine thing they check and therefor very much under diagnosed. The thought of that really scares me w a natural birth. If you have a low placenta at 20 weeks that then moves up you should query the sonograher about this at the follow up. Dont want to scare anyone, the overall risk is very very low especially if the placenta is not low at 20 weeks.

    AFM have booked my 20 week for the 12/3. Also booked in a 3D scan for the 18/5.

    Yes I am very lucky to have it spotted as bubs had no chance if I go into normal labour I have to have a csection prior if we have a chance.
    It's something that the medical profession needs to wise up on even if the odds low (1/3000).

    Addiegirl the gd thing is with placenta previa im sure it's not likely to occur in future pregnancies. You have exciting times coming up!

    Chances, I'm private but my understanding is that with some public hospitals there are more specialised care. RWH in Melbourne for example have a COSMOS program for more one to one care.

    The way it works in Oz here is, if you go public you get pot luck, whereas private you get to choose (and pay)

    I tossed up about going public when we first found out but decided with all my high risks I would go private for re-assurance.
