    Edit amd Bsby Hospital was a heart breaker
    because everyone is strapped into bed with an epidural in the US one? I agree, but on the other hand, in an English one I just saw, the lady was completely freaking out and in a panic, but they kept refusing to give her an epidural (she was literally begging, and even asked for a CS when they wouldn't give it!) They didnt bother checking her, just kept saying she wasn't far enough along. By the time they decided to actually check her, she was fully dilated and it was too late... She gave birth to a transverse baby (which I understand to be very painful)... Poor love...

    personally, I'm more frightened of the epidural, but I'd like to think that if I start begging for one, they'll give it to me!

    ...see, I'm still waaaay too invested! It's a freaking tv show, i need to calm down already! ...can I blame hormones?

    I like the UK version but I think I've watched every single back-episode on Youtube now, so no more Had a message from my midwife today that my hospital def won't let me go into their birth centre (they have a new policy of no over-40s). So it's the regular hospital for us.BTW, when do BH contractions normally start for most people?

    Geez that's a bit rude isn't it twocam, not allowing over 40s? I've got an apt at 30wks with our public hospital to see the method of delivery. I guess no one can say for sure what's going to be best for me at 41yo. The pregnancy has actually been a dream so far.....(quick. .. better go knock on some wood! ) but who knows if I may get gestational diabetes etc. He's currently lying head down, bum up, my urine is always clear of proteins and I've had no bleeding. Must admit I like the idea of a caesar to eliminate all the unknowns of how the birth will go and I definitely don't like the sound of being induced. Would b a bit worried about recovery from a caesar tho. I wonder if the public would prefer it given my age. ...? 26weeks today. Plenty of time yet, and VERY reassuring too be feeling Jumping Jack leaping around in there rather than having to wait for each BT or scan.

    Far out getting a pram is a science isn't it? ! Think we've settled on a Baby Jogger City Mini GT. Seems to be light, compact, folds with 1 hand while you're holding your baby, hand brake and has all-terrain wheels. Every review I've read raves on it.
    Happy baby growing everyone!

    MusicGal - I'm like you. Dream pregnancy from the get-go, no MS, no major food aversions, still exercising (walking between 5-7km most days). Initially had low lying placenta but that has now totally moved. But apparently over-40s have a higher rate of intervention as a group and the Birth Centre doesn't take individual circumstances into account. Ah well, the closer I get, the more I'm starting to think that 'no drugs' it not best for me anyway. ****es me off that someone else made the choice for me though.

    that sucks... In my humble opinion, they should let the currently pregnant and booked in ladies stay with the birth centre and just refuse new pregnancies if that is there new policy. Still...you should be able to have a birth-centre style of birth in the hospital if that is what you want...shouldn't you?

    As for BHs, with DD I didn't think that I had had them at all. Now that I recognise them, I'm certain I did have them, but just didn't realise. This time around I've been having them since around 20 weeks (I think) and lots of them throughout each day...many many more than last time (not sure if that's common in 2nd pregnancies). Do you think you are having them?

    Hi Ladies
    I am almost 33 weeks and today I went to my GP for a heartbeat check up and she thought she would mention that my 20 week scan was showing a baby with a thick neck above the "normal" range. The neck was measuring between 6.2 and 6.7mm. I got a little mad at her and couldn't understand why I am only now being told about it? I also was under the impression the down syndrome test is 13 weeks which I had and it was fine and beyond the 13 weeks the thickness was irrelevant and they couldn't test that way?
    Just wondering if any of you were willing to share your 20 week nuchal fold measurements? I think I might go for another scan just for peace of mind.
    Hope you are all traveling along well :-)

    Just a quick question, what have you ladies done with your left of drugs from IVF. I have a lot of new unused ones I paid for & don't have the heart to throw away as I know there would be people out there who could use it. Is this ethical thought????
