    I'm not using a stretch mark cream as such. I'm applying a toning cream as it gets really itchy and this seems to soothe it for me. I'm prone to stretch marks so I doubt it would make a difference for me. I already have two very angry red ones on my lower tummy and two very small ones no either side of my belly button

    Hi everyone

    It's been awhile since I have been on here as been busy spending time as a family while my DH was on leave over Christmas and the New Year. I have read back a bit and trying to catch up.

    Cute scan pictures Dream Girl

    Cream on belly - last time I used Bio oil every night and managed to avoid stretch marks until 38 weeks (and I was induced at 38+6) so almost avoided them completely. Didn't bother me too much as they have faded and are barely noticeable now. I am hoping I won't get too many new ones this time around.

    J you mentioned the convenience of finding out the sex second time around. I totally agree it would be far easier but I still really want this one to be a surprise. Luckily we didn't tell anyone last time when we found out DD was a girl so we got given plenty of neutral newborn clothing I can use and all my basics like blankets and wraps and bouncer and playmat and everything are all gender neutral so I think it should be ok. it will be a huge challenge for me though as I am usually a super organised control freak. I am going to let myself buy one girl and one boy baby outfit to take to hospital for baby to come home in. With the one we don't use I will just donate it to charity or pass it on to a friend as this is going to be our last baby.

    AFM - 15 weeks today! Feels like this pregnancy is going way too fast I hope it slows down. We had a great time telling our families our news on Christmas, I am so glad I waited, it was great timing with everyone all together. I had an ob appointment last week and everything is looking good. Unfortunately couldn't hear baby heartbeat with the Doppler so did another scan. It was great watching baby kick its little legs on the screen. I can't wait to feel some movement.

    Holiday negatives bit of a vent. I got to the airport Christmas Eve to discover that my motion sickness tablets are not safe in pregnancy so the whole flight was horrible (including throwing up in business class). The visit home was actually really good and I survived DP's relatives as well. Today we came home. The flight out of Melbourne was delayed because they couldn't find the wheelchair of a person on the flight before ours. 40 minutes later we board. I am traveling with the Blackmores Travel Calm which are useless for me we finally got to Brisbane where we were whisked so quickly from one flight to the next that I didn't even have time for a loo break. Only to find out 10 minutes out of Townsville that they left all the baggage including DP's wheelchair in Brisbane. Not normally to much of an issue but with no legs and only 1 full arm he cant use any other chair and I can't carry our carry-on luggage and push him. Soooooo not happy!! At least we are now home!

    Question for J, do you know of any other motion sickness tablets I can take that might work better. I normally take Kwells which are fantastic but states not to take during pregnancy.

    Will now go back and read what everyone else has been up to

    I have thought since before I did the test when I just "felt" like I was pregnant that I am having a girl. My nephew (who is 4) has picked baby stuff for 4 other bubs that are gender specific and gotten it right every time and has picked something pink for bub. But it will probably be a boy now haha

    I have so many stretch marks already it doesn't bother me. I grew to fast as a child then got fat so I don't mind really.

    Default Graduates of TTC and not wanting to move #2

    I'd be interested to hear the answer on travel sickness tablets. We're going on a cruise in 4 weeks. I usually get sea sick, so this could've interesting.

    Sounds like you had a rough time on holidays. Hopefully you can relax soon.

    It's supposed to be 44 degrees here tomorrow. How am I going to cope with that?

    We seem to be the minority not finding out what sex it is. I really have no idea but DH and I have been struggling with boys names that we like so we probably end up with a boy. Lol

    I would have considered not find out if I was only having one but now with 2 on the way I want to be as prepared as possible and we are also having problems finding boys names we like!
