I am still reading, always interested to see how you're all going....
I keep looking at my pregnancy apps, should be 33 weeks, instead I have my baby!
I'm waiting for more mums to join me! But only when your bubs are fully cooked
Hello again everyone! Sorry have been off-line for a while, but had to go back into hospital, and they did not allow mobile phones.
I am doing well now, and bubs is well too, thankfully. I am glad to be finally home after the drama of the seizure and all that followed.
Thanks to everyone for the PMs. It will take me a while to read back, and catch up with you all...
Quick catch up, I won't go too far back because I haven't done any personals for a while and it might take up a whole thread lol.
Channy - Welcome back! Fingers crossed you have a sticky one and you're here until the exciting end
Lil Smurfy - I'm jealous of your cruise, I can imagine it must hvae been SO nice! I would love to go on one but I suspect that's not likely to happen any time soon.
Bond Girl - I didn't have any 3D or 4D for DS, but luckily my Ob had a machine that does 3D this time around so we've got some lovely 3D pics of DS2's face. So worth it... But I certainly couldn't afford the prices that people charge for a full 4D session. Besides, I figure there's got to be SOME suprises when they're born lol.
Nila - Sorry you had a bad day But if it's any help, you could perhaps paint your DS2 as the 'helper' to make him feel important? Sometimes no matter what you do there's an adjustment period and I'm sure he'll love his siblings once he gets used to them
ToniS - Wow, that quilt is really cute! I have a good one that was given to me by a friend but it's quite thick so I think I'm going to have to find something not quite as heavy for autumn.
SageS - I know what you mean about the hunger, I hit about 28 weeks and suddenly felt like I couldn't get enough food. It's not eased off much but unfortunately (fortunately?) bub is taking up all of my stomach space now. I have to eat small meals and even then I generally have reflux for at least two hours afterwards. Even drinking water does it at the moment.
MyLittleStar - It's so strange that you're supposed to be a few days ahead of me and instead you have your bub here. How is the little angel? I imagine you must feel a bit out of sorts at the moment, wanting to do everything for him and just take him home and get on with things. It'll happen soon though
J37 - OH MY GOSH WOMAN DON'T DO THAT TO US!!! Phwaaaar we were all so worried about you! I'm glad that you and bub are well, and so very relieved! We missed you around here and I have to admit there were a couple of nights where I didn't sleep that great wondering if you were ok. I'm so glad you are!*slumps with relief*.
AFM - I'm officially on maternity leave now . I tell you what, I'm almost 100% certain that I wouldn't have made it to another 2 weeks. I'm so tired all the time and even though I don't nap during the day (it feels like a waste of a day if I sleep heh) it's nice to know that I don't have to worry about it.I was told by my Ob at my appointment on Tuesday that this bub is a 'hefty' bub. He was just checking my fundal height and decided that he's quite large. Not sure whether that means he's a porker or just long. DS was fairly long so I'm hoping that's all it is heh. Bub is moving less and less now, not suprising given that he must be pretty much out of room by now. He's still spending a good 3-4 hours of the day awake and grinding his heals over my ribs so I'm not worried at all. He's good and strong, just space restricted .Aside from that everything is going well. I'm waddling like a duck with dislocated hips and have reflux up to several hours after eating because he's taking up all the space but otherwise feeling good. I'm finally on the home stretch. 40 days left until I get to meet our little man .

MyLittleStar - how is Max doing? Any idea of when he will be able to go home?
Eko - enjoy some rest before bubs comes along. Sounds like you maternity leave is a much needed break.
I used my Xmas pressie this morning & 3.5 hrs of pampering (massage, facial, mani & pedi). It was heaven! Just under 2 weeks till our house settles!!!! Woohoo! Can't wait to get in and start setting up the nursery
We bought a cot today. I'm so excited that we've bought something big for bub.
I've got my morph scan on Thursday. It will be good to have another scan confirm that bub is a girl.
