    Yup, I'm still anxious too... Still avoiding telling people in case it "goes away", also avoiding buying things... Hard to get excited with a constant cloud of anxiety hanging over everything. I keep telling myself that after the 19 week scan ill be better, then I'm sure it'll move to "after I get to 30 weeks", then "once I'm holding my baby in my arms", then "after s/he turns 1"...

    Hello to everybody.....(for some reason enter wont work) 9+4 today. Getting dark discharge and ended up with a very new GP who seemed rather confused and slightly panicked when I gave him my story. I asked if the OHSS could be the reason and he had to look up what that was and then said no. I managed to get onto the OBS office and speak to the nurse, when I asked if the OHSS could be to blame she said yes, more than likely it was hormonal and with no pain, cramping, yukkiness in the discharge etc to not worry.....but if I was worried to call or come in if it would help. I have bought a few things her and there, just some non gender muslin wraps, bond suit and socks.....couldn't help myself lol oh and a nappy bucket and bath. Looked at a cot and chosen a pram, it is a steelcraft with car capsule, does double (for the next one), toddler seat, tall handle (I am 6 foot tall and kick most prams) it seems brilliant, simple and clever and is top of my list, even though I wouldn't have previously looked at steel craft. If I start running again (I do dream of this but am better doing my crossfit) I will buy a specific jogger to keep at home, then it doesn't mater if it is convenient to fold or whatever. I ordered some bamboo glow bug nappies to see what they are like, and a few other bamboo reusable things like dribble cloths and breast pads. MIL is a maker and wants to know if she can makes sheets etc....I thought that was lovely and said definitely please do. MS is getting a little bit more invasive, but still magic compared to my last two pregnancies from my previous life. Have booked my NTS and bloods for 27th August, I will be happier with that result sorted with my age and all.

    Hi Arlais, big welcome and congratulations on your BFP! It is such a great feeling but you will probably realise if you read back that we are all still pretty stressed out, and that totally OK!!! I really do think we IVFers do it a lot harder than "normal" people when it comes to conception and pregnancy lol!

    speaking of prams, we have the baby jogger city mini as when DS was born my car was a corolla (which DS now drives to work) and we needed something to fit in my little broomie. It is a FANTASTIC pram and I absolutely love it, it was exy but we have gotten so much use out of it, even at 3 he still goes in it if we need to walk for long periods of time. So long as you will get the use out of an exy pram, it can sometimes be a good purchase. We are planning on using it for boris as well when he arrives, although we have found out that they have released a new pram (the versa I think its called) and I am just a wee bit in love with it! So not sure whether we will sell our city mini and get a new one, or just stay with the one we have got, but we have plenty of time to decide. There are just SO many to choose from with so many different features that its really tough! But I can't speak highly enough of the BJ prams.

    Shopping is fun! I really want to start buying things but I am struggling to figure out what we will need when we have a house full of boys stuff already

    Tommi I really can sympathise! I look in the mirror every day and think "am I really still pregnant, why aren't i getting any bigger, is that a baby or just fat", although I have been told twice today that I am 'glowing' hahahahahaha so I guess that's a good sign???? I hate the wait between scans/appts! I had such a stressful and complicated pregnancy with DS 1 that I was stressed out all the time, and I keep expecting the same to happen this time, even though at this stage there is nothing to worry about!

    Hi Des, sorry to hear about your discharge, hopefully it buggers off quickly and it nothing to worry about. Come on 12 week scan so you can see your little bundle again!

    Mum-to-be Sarah Sharples splashed out £3,000 on pink clothes and accessories for her baby girl - then gave birth to a boy.

    In her excitement, the 25-year-old splashed her cash on dresses, toys and nursery furniture, all in the most girlish shade of pink.
    She even had a name planned and stencilled "Lily Mae" on the baby's delicately pink bedroom wall. Read the full story here: http://tyneandwear.sky.com/news/arti...then-has-a-boy


    Ladies 'touch wood' ... I just read the above new thread posted on bh tonight.

    I'm counting my blessing for the chromosome blood test we had as part of the maternit21 testing. But even the chroms is only 99% accuracy. Touch wood!

    4 days til my 19week scan ... think I'll be checking genitals just to be sure! Lol

    Little girl put on a show this arvo. Daddy arrived home and felt her for the first time.

    ^^ This happened to a FB friend of mine, only she found out it was a boy at 36 weeks at her final scan. I doubt she would have spent quite that much on pink stuff, but she certainly had bought a lot, she'd had a girly baby shower with girly gifts, painted the nursery pink, etc. Then in the last few weeks she had to pack it all away, go shopping for boy stuff, repaint the nursery, etc. It's the reason that I'm not going to go crazy with buying gender-specific stuff til after the baby comes, despite the fact we're finding out. And anything I do get I might keep the receipts, lol.

    Arlais...welcome feel free to be as giddy-excited and paranoid as you need to be - we all understand!

    MariaA...hi again, nice to see you back

    Pilbara...good luck at the Ob today

    Kd0085, Sariele, MusicalGirl...wonderful to hear you all had good scan results in the past few days It's such a relief isn't it?

    Sunshinebell... good shopping!

    Tommi and Gilliebean I think our gender scans are all at the same time - Mine is 28/8, Tommi is yours 29/8(?) and then Gillie is 30/8. How exciting!

    AFM nothing much going on here... we put our pram on lay-by at the EOFY sales when it was $100 off - a Baby Jogger City Mini GT (so very glad to read Pilbara's positive review ). It's one of the few that will fit in our hatchback i20 without taking off the wheels, plus we really liked that it can be used for a child up to 28kg in case Bing is humungoid!

    Hi guys,

    Sorry I have been MIA for almost 2 weeks, reason being we went away on a holiday.. so back to work today after such a relaxing time..

    Congrats to everyone who had their scans and the newcomers..

    I had my 19 week scan yesterday and everything went well, so relieved now.. but still back to that stage feeling nervous etc. Seeing my OB in 2 weeks..I don't think I will relax untill I get to hold the bub in my arms.. 20 weeks this weekend can't believe time is going so fast.

    Interesting conversation on all baby accessories. We actually haven't bought anything at all, I am waiting for the xmas sale in Nov..
    MIL already bought some clothes and that's all..I was thinking next month I might start making a list and have a look online and check the prices etc..

    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to this forum and thread but I am freaking oout and thought your ladies would understand. DH and I have been TTC since 2006. After 6 full IVF rounds and one frozen cycle we finally have a BFP. I am currently 7weeks and have had my first scan which was all good. Blob has a good heart beat and in a good position. I have had two MC very early (4 weeks and 5 weeks) so excited to get this far. DH and I both work in the medical field so we always see the things when they go wrong. At this stage I am not having any real symptoms apart from bloating and exhaustion but being a shift worker that is normal. I am freaking out that something will go wrong and like everyone else just wish we had that little window where we could see what was happening. I thought by know I would be constantly nauseous (although I guess I should be happy about that) but just generally nervous. Sorry to rant on but figured all of you might understand. Having gone through such a long journey to get here I am finding it hard to relax and just enjoy it... any advice??

    Hi hun, congrats! I went through 5 full rounds and one FET, so I get where the nerves are coming from. I'm ten weeks tomorrow and I've had four scans so far. They've all been great, absolutely textbook, but I am still so paranoid about whether the baby's okay. I think for those who have had a rougher journey, this is normal. We just can't bear the thought of having to start all over again after things were finally looking up. The biggest comfort I found were statistics; with each scan I've been able to tell myself, "okay, your risk of miscarriage is now ***%", and of course that number has been dropping each scan (as of Monday, my risk is now around 0.5%). But this sort of thing isn't always comfort to everyone. And re: lack of symptoms, I have had virtually NO symptoms apart from bloating and constipation. No nausea, no increased peeing, no increased sense of smell, no funny metallic tastes, no intense cravings, and only a little bit of tiredness. The lack of symptoms freaked me out no end (as the ladies here will attest to, lol), but it truly has meant nothing at all; so far baby looks perfect. So just try and relax, but I know how hard that is!

    Hi jedihouse and congratulations on the BFP!!!

    I dont know if i have any advice, I know that coming on here and voicing my concerns was fantastic as once it was off my chest it made me feel a little bit better. I dont know how i would have gotten through it all without BH. I know that sounds ridiculous but none of my friends had been through IVF and it is harder for them to understand how I am feeling i think, plus this is anonymous so if i sound like a crazy person (which is likely) at least no one knows who i am haha.

    I also find distractions fantastic oh and i do a countdown on my phone for every scan so today it says 21 days till next scan just makes me feel like i have a little control haha.

    I never had MS just nausea and tiredness,everyone is different though and i know that once you see that heartbeat the chances of MC decrease which is a positive.

    congratulations again!!

    Welcome back Kalshy!!! So excited about your scan WOOHOO! you are halfway there

    Twocam my scan is the 29th at 8:10am SOOO excited and impatient haha that will be a fun week on here with all of us having our scans YAY!
