    So exciting to see all the nursery and cot painting getting finished! You are a creative bunch! I love it!
    Just wondering if any of you are taking part in a student midwife program and if so how you've found it?

    Hello there was wondering ( I know a bit late) if I could join your exciting little thread? I think iam going to be having this baby!! I think you will be able to get the gist of my story in my signature but pls feel free to ask any questions. After 5 of my own cycles, I got pregnant with de cycle, who is my 23 yr niece (sisters daughter ). And I don't think I would have ever been posting here had it not been for the support (and insistence of my accepting her eggs) of my niece, sister and DH. It took a while for me to listen to them and iam glad I did. First de round and I was pregnant! I did concieved twins but found out on my 11 week scan that I lost a twin, we were devastated. Iam now 26 weeks with an active little bubba! I had a pretty shaky start with bleeds but everything seems to be on track (touchwood ).

    I have enjoyed reading this thread and have been motivated by you all here. I haven't bought anything for bubs yet (except DH couldn't help himself and bought Dr Seuss "Oh the places you will go" - DH is an Aust diplomat so we travel alot and based out of Aust, so he thought the title of the book was quite befitting and couple of bodysuits wrapped for xmas and we got the kids to open it up). Our ivf journey has been difficult, coming back to do cycle after cycle in Aust and for most part DH could only stay from epu to tx taking care of me and then all our comforting of bfn on Skype. De cycle was hard to coordinate with niece in Sydney, FS in Bris and we are abroad. My FS and QFG had been great with us though. We always had that added cost of flights, acc, car hire, etc. the hardest part with this pregnancy was the early bleeds I had (stayed with my sister who took good care of me in and out if hospital ) and having to tell DH in whatever part of the world iam bleeding and in hospital again, sometimes he would be sitting in airports, sometimes he would be doing diplomatic negotiations in god knows what country, meetings, conferences.... that there would be times I would not tell him iam in hospital. I thought there was nothing he could do except worry and the type of work he did he needs a clear head and of course can't tell anyone about his private life ( excuse me Mr Ambassador...your excellency...Minster...but my wife is bleeding in the hospital pregnant so excuse me if I can't negotiate or concentrate today....enjoy my glass of wine being pretentious, while hoping my wife isn't miscarrying cycle no. 6! - imagine how'd that go down!) its a heavy price for being a diplomat, you don't have much of home life and always in a different port. But we got through it and he is ever thankful to my sister, niece and my sisters other dds of taking care of me. My poor kids doing their bit as well.

    But now reading the excitement here, I panicked and said to DH its not too far is it, should we start? He thought I would never ask! I guess I was so repressive that I was stopping him as well from enjoying. But now once I have this baby I want to look back and say hey I really enjoyed my pregnancy, so have decided I can't change come what may but iam now going to relax a bit rub my belly and get excited and let DH dream and have silly grins! So thank you all for sharing your journey here and giving me hope.

    Sorry for the long me post. Iam looking forward to getting to know you ladies and a BIG congratulations to all of you, we made it this far with all our aches and pains And now its bubba time!

    Amps - I had a severe migraine problem earlier on as well, I would have one every week, lasting 3 days. When admitted in hospital they administer morphine. I was really worried for bubs but apparently the distress of the migraine pain on me and bubs was more harmful as my bp was very high hence the morphine to bring me down. I now control it with Myserndol Forte the minute I know its not looking good. I used to hesitate quite a bit before and end up in hospital, so of course while I don't take one everyday, I would rather take that then go on morphine. What meds does the hosp treat you with? You poor thing hope you feel better soon. The pain is crippling.

    A massive welcome ann!! And congratulations too. Sounds like you've had a pretty testing journey there and I admire your strength and persistence. "Oh the places you'll go" is certainly fitting for what you and your family have gone through to get to this point, love that book. I'm glad you're at a point where you want to try and enjoy your pregnancy. I'm sure all of those endorphins you're sending you're little bub are going to go a long way. Thanks for sharing your story.

    Well done to all of you and your creative ventures. I wish I could make something for our little bub. I think home made anything is so special. I'm lucky to have have close family and friends who have knitted and stitched some lovely blankets and throws which I will cherish.

    Just started reading "the dad factor" which was recommended by our midwife. As DH is away for work I thought I'd start skimming through the pages. It's very easy to read and has some interesting points. It's cool to have something from the perspective of the father. Anyway, thought I'd share. Hopefully the rest of the book is good.

    Ann17 - congrats and huge welcome

    Lotsathoughts - such a cute pic capturing the special moment

    Looks like everyone else is doing well and not long now for some of us. Less that 5 weeks for me when they are inducing me.

    Talk about so many prams to choose from! I ended up gettting the Phil and Teds auto stop pram, with the capsule attachment, and put it together last night and seems to be easy to put down and take up.

    I also picked up my cot I got a Boori Royale Sleigh, and got a Medela Breast pump. Its all getting so exciting now that I have finished work and starting to get all babies stuff. Has any one got their nursery all ready yet? It will be awesome to see some pics. Once I have all mine setup, I will post some pics.

    Happy Sunday enjoy your day everyone
