    Wohooo!! So exciting Arlais! Is it a weird feeling?

    Ann I long for my desk during the day. I'm a teacher so on my feet when the kids are there. But I could imagine it would be really uncomfortable at this point. I envy people being able to go to the toilet when they want. Haha, the things that become important towards the end. Hope the massages help!

    Getting lots of Braxton hicks now. I like it, I feeling like cheering my body on. Like it's training for a big marathon or something.

    Hooray for the weekend!!!

    Had a great night out last night at hubby's work function got home about 1.30 /2am so a little tired today (but think that's more because I received some sad news from my friend (which I didn't get to read her message until just before I got in bed) who had to make a hard decision - let the smaller twin go as it was struggling and starting to effect the other bub. I've heard so much bad news lately as last month the lady down the road lost her IVF triplets (she shared my due date) & the day after that another lady I know who had only told me the week before she was 8weeks pregnant told me she had lost hers.

    I think Junior has been throwing in extra kicks to reassure me that we are good - and really lucky. It makes you realise that no matter your struggle to get your baby, to be carrying your bub, and to take them home at the end is one of the most special moments and so so precious.
    Can't wait to hold this little guy and kiss him to thank him.

    Jay that's very sad. Unfortunately part of the ivf journey is the amount of losses we have to endure before we can be lucky enough to take a baby home. It's well documented that the rate of miscarriage is very high in ivf. A cousin of ours had ivf triplets last year and she seemed to have a very easy pregnancy. I always think wow how lucky she was to carry them almost to full term when I hear these sad stories.

    Just on a separate note can I ask what kind of nightware people are taking to hospital. My mother told me to get myself organised and start buying some nighties today. So I went to Target and had a look but really not sure about size and appropriate style.

    Sorry to hear about your friends Jay - it really does remind us how lucky we are to still have our bubs on board. Once we reached "viability" I was checking the charts every week to see what the chances of survival were. Now I'm getting close to the end (esp with the cramping earlier this week) I find myself stalking prem baby threads to find info on what challenges we might face if she comes early - paranoid much?!

    Panda I was delighted to find big w are selling maternity sleepwear! I'm wearing a cute polka dot nighty right now. It has a crossover top for easy breastfeeding and is so soft and comfortable. I'm wearing a sports crop under it for extra support and coverage because I have massive boobies, but could still pop one out easy for feeding bub. I bought another nighty the same and a pants and singlet set that has those clip straps. I've purposely packed clothes in my hospital bag that are comfortable enough to sleep in and I can feed in easily, but look nice enough I won't look too slobby if visitors come before I've had a chance to change into "day clothes".

    Second night in a row for me I've had shocking insomnia. I was up just before 4am eating yoghurt because I'd been awake for ages and got hungry! I hope I'll be able to get some decent sleep before bub comes

    I think I've got the same nightie Arlais and I love it too!

    Panda, you definitely need sonething for easy breastfeeding. With DS, I wore the singlet breastfeeding tops with comfy kmart sleep pants (which also looked ok in the day). Big W do have some nice maternity pjs which you will still be able to wear after. I actually treated myself to some really lovely nursing pjs and nightie I bought online but not sure if I'll use in hospital due to ongoing bleeding etc after birth.

    For me I will be taking pj pant bottoms and breast-feeding singlets (the target ones). I will take a zip front hoodie. I will also take a dressing gown cause it gets cold in the hospital in the middle of the night!!!

    Last time I took nighties with buttons down the front or that peek-a-boo style but they didn't work for me. Getting breastfeeding right is usually at least a 2 person job (you and midwife) and I found I ended up sitting there with no top on at all cause the midwife couldn't get enough access to my boob through the nighty.

    Also, they initially encourage the football hold which is where bub is under your right arm while feeding on your right side rather than laying across your body (which is how you see most people doing it), bubs head is in your right hand and body is resting along your right fore arm. You use your left hand the hold your right boob and position correctly into bubs mouth. They also get you to strip bub down to singlet and nappy to get good skin to skin contact - plus it also helps them to stay awake - so best to have something that comes away completely to expose your skin rather than just able to sneak boob out. I was really committed to breast feeding and getting it right so I ended up almost naked except for undies as the nighties were just getting in the way!!

    I would suggest take multiple different options - nighty, two piece, button front, maternity singlet etc. You will quickly find you lean to one ensemble and steer clear of the rest!

    That was my experience last time anyway. I am sure others will have different experiences.

    Jay I'm sorry to hear about all the heartache your friends are experiencing. I agree, after conception, every baby is equally precious.

    If you haven't read it before, I highly recommend googling the poem 'I will be a wonderful mother' it's beautifully tear jerking.

    I'm a pj girl so I'm just going with pj pants and nursing singlets. Other than that I'm still in my own clothes.

    I've had a productive morning, made the custard slice I was dying for, bacon and egg pie and I'm having a break from sanding the rest of the cot.

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

    Jay - iam sorry to hear about your friend. I hope that the other twin is doing fine and your friends pain will lessen over time. We are so lucky to come this far and we are all full of hope and positiveness. I had a bit of a sad night night and niggling feeling as I just found out that one the ivf ladies delivered a healthy son but lost the the twin at 33 weeks, I can't imagine the pain if losing at such a late stage.

    Panda - you just never know, how it works out.... Some women have twins and triplets and others lose all or one. I went shopping today and saw twin boys and cldnt help but wonder why cldnt that have been me, I know its silly and immature but sometimes I can't help but have that thought cross my mind when I see twins. I have a cousin who has ivf twins dd/ds but prior to that conceived their first child through ivf however lost the baby due to cord accident just before delivery. But went on to have a dd then the twins.

    Unfort I can't breastfeed, I produced milk, lots of it but it doesn't come out. When I had dd the hosp tried so hard, I wore plastic shells around my nipples had the big automatic pump hooked on for couple of hours on and off but only had half an ounce. They had to formula feed straight away as the nurses tried and dd was just crying cause nothing was coming out. After being discharged I kept trying for little over a week but got very sick with high fever and huge heavy breasts and the milk starting forming solid, then OB said no more stimulation and only formula. It was terribly painful.
