Laned- I'm really sorry to hear that your friend put you in that position. I was also terrified of my daughter contracting those sorts of things before she was at the age where she could be immunised. I pray that your friends husbands tests come back negative and that you can put your mind at ease for a while. xx
Pixel - I'm doing really well thanks. While I wouldn't say that I'm looking pregnant (more like i've been eating too many pies) I am at the point where I can't do up any of my jeans or pants Ive started using my belly belt, just of the first button so I can be comfortable and sit down without feeling like my jeans are going to cut me in half. I used the Belly Belt all through my pregnancy with my daughter and it saved me a fortune, I only bought two pieces of maternity clothing for the whole pregnancy. It was the best pregnancy tip I was ever given. Re your experience with the Crinone - it is quite common for it to cause irritation and bleeding/spotting. When I got to the point where I could alternate between my POI and crinone/pessaries, I had about 6 tubes of crinone that I wanted to use up from my previous cycles. This is when I had a pink/salmon type discharge and when I had the spotting in my first couple of weeks. Once I changed to the Pessaries - this went away. So if it continues, maybe ask your FS about being able to switch over to the pessaries if you are concerned about it. I had my last progesterone injection last Friday. I can't believe how my butt got used to them. Not even a bruise to be seen when my husband gave me the last one - it was quite amazing.
I have my first appointment with my OB next week... its all starting to feel a bit real now. Although, there are times where I forget I am pregnant (mainly in the mornings) as my "morning" sickness only surfaces in the afternoon. Good luck for your scan this week, I hope you are far enough along to see the heartbeat. Would your FS consider allow you coming in towards the end of this week, as that way you would probably be more likely to see it - which will most definitely put your mind at ease. If it's too soon, they only have to re-schedule a scan for the following week, which might put you through allot of unnecessary stress? I can imagine regardless you are keen to see what's going on in there?
Abundance - thinking of you for tomorrow for your BFP!
Net - I'm so sorry to hear about all your issues with the washing machine still flooding your unit. That's really unfair that your carpets are being ruined because of your neighbours negligence. Glad to hear that you got all your meds though - hopefully its all smooth sailing for you from here on. I've flown with Cathay Pacific and they are great, so don't worry about that.
Jodi - exciting that you are heading back in November. Are you using the same donor or have you chosen a different donor? I can imagine how much you will miss your DH & DS, I miss my daughter when she goes for a sleepover, my life feels a bit weird/wrong when she's not around. I can't believe Qantas downgraded you. I'm not quite sure how that can happen. We flew business class with Qantas when we went to SA and they were absolutely sensational. I know that everybody has not had the same experience with them though. If you haven't already done so, make sure that you post your issue on their Facebook page. I had a friend who did this over an issue she had with a flight to Melbourne and they came straight back to her and provided her with a free return Sydney/Melbourne flight to compensate. Unfortunately in this day and age, it really is a case of "the squeaky wheel gets the most oil".
To anybody I have missed
