Was supposed to go to dinner with family tonight, but my brother has suspected parvovirus which can cause complications in unborn bubs if mum gets it. So I've had to make a jumbled reason as to why I can't make it as the whole fam doesn't know yet!
You are all chatty today. Nursery looking good. Can't believe people shopping makes me feel so slack. Without baby showers I'd have barely anything for bub.
Wow I can't keep up with you lot! Been so manic at work I have hardly had time to get on here all week!
Choccie- re. sneezing. Yes it really hurts me too! Gives me pain down the side of my bump, so does blowing my nose.
Sage- I think I was talking about the Epi No. I have bought one just waiting for it to arrive. My midwife recommended it to help me go into labour naturally rather than induction this time and to help prevent tearing, there is some good research apparently. Also, I have been told to take raspberry leaf tea from 26 weeks 3 times a day. I will struggle with that one, due to my stomach issues! But will do my best!
Michelle Claire Bear- congrats and welcome! I had regular hcg levels taken but only as I had to go through a fertility centre on clomid this time around. for bub #1, naturally conceived first go, I had no tests except my own home urine ones!
Hi to everyone else, have a great weekend. We are doing our nursery! will post pics when it's done!
Oh and here is my nappy bag, bought from UK and sent over from my mum. Brand is Babymel. Love it! 41-R5n24GjL__AA160_.jpg
LOVE the nursery FTM!! OMG - she has so many clothes!!!
Dreamgirl - I LOVE that bag, very cool. One of the zips broke on the one I had with DD. Undecided if I will replace it or not. Most of the time I ended up just using an oversized handbag.
MCB - I had HCG done but only cos it was standard practice by the IVF clinic. Some drs are happy just to see a positive test then will write the referral.
Well the bleeding has stopped thank GOD. It seemed to be just one massive bleed then all gone. DD went to my dads for the day so Ive been laying low. Thank goodness Im off work for another 3 weeks (dont start again till next term starts) so I can take it easy - well, as easy as I can with a 3 year old running around!!!
Ive bought just a couple of little onesies (I LOVE onesies!) but I dont need anything pink as I still have everything from DD. Im finding theres not much unisex stuff around at the moment GRRR but thats ok, it will stop me buying too much. We are still unsure if we will find out the sex (we didnt with DD). Would LOVE to know what colour to buy but at the same time we already have everything pink, so if its blue it will give me an excuse to go on a shopping spree once bubs is born

My boss has finally (with my med cert) rostered all my remaining shifts where I can sit down more. Complained that me finishing 2 weeks earlier would mess up the roster. Then at the end of the meeting told me to make sure I bring bub in once its born so he can meet bub. Weird meeting!
Pfft to him I say Toni!! Great to hear he has made allowances for you (and so he should have!!). Some employers are so horrible. My old employer demoted me because she found out I was having IVF, was so stressful and a terrible experience. Dont know how they get away with it really.
What's the age gap?
Waiting I am glad the baby is going good I seriously think the babies like to tease us from day of conception, they are always scaring us!!!
