    Sariele - have a brilliant cruise, you lucky thing I just came back from a long weekend in Brissie and it was so nice to have a break.

    Sunshine eek 10 weeks!? That means I've got just over 11 weeks to go. Holey moley....

    kd0085 I hope the cramping settles and that you are able to go home soon Better to put your mind at ease though, hey?

    Lindsay - I don't get much movement at all except about 6am in the morning when I'm waking up. But I've come to realise that's normal for our bub. I read in What to Expect When You're Expecting that movements can slow down later in pregnancy because there isn't as much room for them to wiggle around.

    Gillie- hope your GTT results are good

    Chook, Pilbara, LittleSunFlowers, Hoots and everyone I missed - HI

    AFM...still just going about my daily business as normal. Sometimes I wish I had more pregnancy symptoms to make it a bit more real to me, but I guess there's still plenty of time for that in the next 11 weeks!

    Thanks for advise on movements it's been very helpful. I never thought that me running around would be soothing for her & then laying down & relaxing is when I would feel it but it is very true.

    Kd hope all is going well for u have been thinking about u but like previous posts u r in the best place.

    How'd the tests go ladies? Do u have to wait long for the results? Xx fingers they all come back negative.

    Sariele - enjoy your holiday.


    KD - I hope everything is OK.


    My glucose tolerance tests were OK so I don't have gestational diabetes, so at least don't have to worry about that.


    Scan yesterday (28 weeks), everything fine, except baby is large for gestational age (and I don't have diabetes). The head circumference and femur length were on the large side, that is fine, but what I'm worried about was the abdomen measurement which was off the charts. The baby is too fat, and I feel like a bad mother. I am a bit embarrassed I let this happen. I was of normal BMI before the pregnancy, so no special problems, but during the early part of the pregnancy I was eating a lot of junk because of feeling nauseous, and have continued with some of the junk.


    The last scan at 22 weeks everything was perfect, but then we had just come back from our Singapore trip, during which I was not eating much sugar, and doing a lot of walking.


    As of yesterday, there'll be no more choccies, no chips, no ice cream, no juices or sugar drinks, no pizzas. Just home cooked normal meals from now on. Hopefully things will even out a bit by the next scan in 6 weeks time (week 34).


    I have filled in the forms at work to start maternity leave a week before my due date. However, will be bridging the time between the Xmas/New Year break and the maternity leave with recreation leave, so I will be effectively off work from 20 Dec. Hopefully I'll make it until then and it won't all happen early.

    chook, did they tell you that the baby is large because of what you are eating????

    I have honestly never heard of a baby's large size being the mum's fault, so I really think that you should stop beating yourself up ...all I have ever heard is that bubs will take what he/she needs and the rest will be the mums problem My diet is far from ideal at the moment , and I know plenty of women who proudly acknowledge that they used pregnancy as an excuse to eat whatever they wanted and gain heaps of weight... Im sure your bubs will be fine, and please don't blame yourself!

    Aw Chook don't beat yourself up. Like Pilbara I've heard bubs only take what they need. Just do what you can

    A doc came in during the scan and he said not to worry. But after that, we had an appointment with a doc in the main clinic. He just stared at the results and said "what is this baby doing?". Made me really nervous. He said if I eat too much sugar the baby will end up over 4kg at the end. I felt awful afterward. Hopefully I won't get the same doctor on the next visit.


    Anyway I am on a "diet" now. When I say diet I don't mean a dangerously low calorie, not hardly eating anything kind of diet. I'm just cutting back on sugar and junk food, and eating proper food instead. Eg, bringing lunch from home instead of getting chips at work, bringing in an apple to munch on instead of visiting the chocolate vending machine. I will still be able to have the odd treat if I go out. I'm just not buying chocolate anymore and keeping it at home where it is too easy to eat too much of it at once.

    Chook sounds like a couple of us in here have decent size bubbas.
    So much for ivf babies being small!

    Kd just wanted to check on you ... are you home now? Everything ok?

    DH is home (yeah) so I've been making the most of our precious time together.

    ...but 4 kg is about average isn't it??? DD was just under 3, and they said that she was small! Honestly chook, it doesn't make sense to me... Don't feel bad, you are doing great

    Chook sounds sensible and will no doubt help you be healthier for delivery and recovery afterwards. The doctor sounds very insensitive though Babies grow for lots of reasons and for him to make that kind of judgement without talking to you about family history, medical conditions etc was (I think) quite unprofessional. Bub will be fine and so will you
