    Hi Rainbow (yes I am still here lurking from time to time!)
    I also have an increased risk for pre eclampsia. I was told after my first trimester screening that the blood result for my PAPP-A level was low - which can in some cases be indicative of poor placental function later on in pregnancy - but is usually fine in most cases. Poor placental function can cause pre eclampsia. Im sure they were talking about your PAPP-A levels.

    I am birthing at a birth centre and this has not caused me to not be allowed to birth there so Im sure you will be fine. The docs just wanted me to have a 36 week scan to assess growth, placental function and AFI - which I had yesterday - and everything is totally normal! placental working perfectly - baby is a bit of a fatty! (which is totally strange because I am only 55kg!) So as soon as 37 weeks rolls around which is next week I am starting operation get into labour! Have already started my raspberry leaf tablets and evening primrose oil but will see chiropractor next week. And then lots of walking, might even try s*x (oh god)!

    Anyway, I have researched heaps on PAPP-A if you want anymore info.

    Hey button that would be great. I'm really worried that I'll get to another ultrasound and bub won't have grown or something!

    Can you pm me some links if you have bookmarked them?

    I know the risk is only slight...but it's still scary. Trying to call the hosp to book my appt but the number isn't working!

    Good to see you again Button. Wow, you're nearly there. Glad to hear your scan was normal yesterday. At what stage can we start raspberry leaf tea and evening primrose oil?

    Hi Rainbow
    http://www.wnhs.health.wa.gov.au/dev...nb/1/b1.12.pdf

    this link is good!

    Lil smurfy - I started 1 raspberry leaf tablet per day from 34 weeks and now have started 2 per day from 36 weeks.
    Evening primrose oil I have started 1 tablet per day from 36 weeks and will increase to 2 per day from 37 weeks. I know you can actually insert evening primrose oil vaginally but I am not that brave!

    J- good to hear from you and glad everything is going ok. Not long now! I hope the induction goes well for you. Great that bub turned head down too. I also remember your BFP and how shocked you were as it was so long between having sex and when you O’d!

    Maybee Baybee- enjoy your baby shower on Sunday.

    FTM- oh no poor Valentina. The mucous doesn’t get forced out in the same way as with a vaginal birth so it’s an unfortunate side effect. Hope she’s ok now! I found it hard when I had my c-section as bub would be in his bassinet next to me sleeping, then when he’d cry I couldn’t bend over to pick him up due the scar and it might take several minutes for the nurses to answer the call bell! Kept him with me in bed after that. How is the hospital food? J

    Miss XamA- yeah it gets worrying when the movement suddenly slow down. The doppler is a great reassurance. Sure bub is just hiding behind the cushioning placenta like you said. I am not counting kicks as such but know the times of the day when bub is usually active and try to pay attention to that. Hope the OB appointment goes well.

    MrsLA- I think I started bloating quite early, 8 weeks or so, but it was only obvious to me and no one else. Didn’t get a proper bump until much later on despite it being my 2nd baby.

    Rainbow- good about the NT results but not to good re. pre eclampsia! I wonder how they can tell that this early on. So you have to change to a normal delivery suite rather than a birthing centre? That sucks big time!!! Surely they’ll allow you to wait and see later on what happens.

    Button- good to hear from you and pleased the scan was ok. Good luck with operation ‘start labour’. Sex is well worth trying...and if you can ingest semen even better (without throwing up!!!) lol. I am doing raspberry leaf tea from 30 weeks and will try the internal evening primrose oil, as I am popping so many supplements already I can’t face another tablet to swallow!

    Hi to everyone else!

    AFM- very sleepy today at work just want to curl up under my desk! Feeling better than yesterday though, no more nausea. But got very hot on the bus this morning and had to strip off my layers and have a drink in case I got light headed! Going for someone’s leaving do after work today, roll on 5pm! I am still a bit bothered by midwife saying on Weds that baby is measuring slightly small for dates, even though she didn’t see a problem. Glad I have my 3D scan a week on Monday as this place also does a full diagnostic exam of baby which is why I needed a referral. So they can check her over for me.

    Hey bond, it's not pre eclampsia. Just a higher risk factor than normal. Hopefully it is nothing though. Extra monitoring until 24 weeks when they can see how the placenta is going

    Best case scenario, I don't have it and I can go ahead and stay the birth centre, worst case, I'll move over to delivery for more monitoring!

    FTM omg Valentina is gorgeous I just wanna give her a big squeeze hug.

    BOND ok are u ready to be confused? Lol the endo (thyroid dr) said she was worried after looking at my 20weeks scan measurements of bub saying it was a big bub not sure if she ment fat or long?? She said she was surprised my GD levels were so good would have expected me to have GD. Then went nxt door and seen OB she measured me at 28cm when I should be 30cm coz I was 30weeks on Thursday. Confused yet lol
    I'm not to worried about the OB measurements as with both dd and ds I measured 2weeks behind all way through pregnancy. Dd and ds were long babies and that's fine I can do long babies just don't wanna do chubby ones as I avoided stitches/ being cut with last 2 so would love not to worry about that.
    Glad ur feeling better today and hope ur 3d scan can put ur mind at ease.

    J hi glad ur doing well and it's so exciting you get to meet bubs in 1-2 weeks

    👋Everyone else hope your all having a great Friday
