    @megsarama love the twin nursery! I can't wait till we start to get ours set up, I think it will be very similar to your, looking at your furniture....

    And I see your bump is high...(like mine). Must be a twin thing. Uncomfortable isn't it?

    In other news, I think im experiencing some braxton hicks. I was really, really scared the otger night, my tummy was tightening every ten mins for an hour! I've only been in labour once, but not really sure if these tightenings are "braxton hicks" or not. Im only 22 +5 weeks, so it has been on my mind lately that something may be wrong.?!?!

    Im in canberra atm and its freezing!!@@
    @Shawly - have you heard more news yet? Im hoping all will be ok.

    Had the Harmony blood test yesterday and a talk with the genetic counsellor who was lovely. Got to wait two weeks for the results now. Hope all ok with you, too...

    Some are really caring and helped alot when I needed advice on breastfeeding, and I will be relying on them to do that again this time around. But there were one or two who pushed me to tears saying that I should have gotten the hang of it already as im starving my baby who had just lost over 500g in 3 days. Then they looked at me in a horrified manner when i finally gave in and bottle fed my baby as i didnt want her to starve anymore. Its those two that I am not happy about when I think of that experience, but I never said that all midwives are insensitive when I talk about that situation.

    I understand why people get defensive, but when I personally vent here, its just my opinion on those that gave me that experience, not everyone in that profession. Im sure the other ladies dont mean to offend either.

    Frenchy, I know, I totally get it... we all need a vent and there are a few girls I work with who shouldn't even have a registration. So I know what you mean. Im just a little sensitive and emotional this week... damn hormones :O
    No one should ever say your starving your baby, how ridiculous.... your body makes what the babies need and they always lose weight to begin with.. there isnt much colostrum but its liquid gold. I hope you get a better bf experience this time. I feel bad already cause ive decided im going to mix feed the twins.. I just think bf 2 babies every 3 hours exclusively is a big ask... what if I get damaged nipples from a tongue tie or poor attachment for a few feeds. And bolicks to the person who told you that you should have the hang of it... bf is hard to begin with, I know everyone says its natural but mums and bubs both have to learn it together... the more help with bf the better I say!

    It is uncomfortable bayside.. I didnt realise it would get so uncomfortable so quickly.. dh and I putting the stuff together today and I got stuck on the floor! Glad we did it now and not at 28-30 weeks like a friend advised... she said it was too early but by 28 weeks we will be massive bayside... massive!! Lol

    We are just waiting for our monkey/tree decals to arrive from usa and then to put up 2 shelves and I think we will be done... we dont really have room for more pretty decorations, we just had to go really practical for storage with room restrictions. would have loved a glider in there!

    How are you feeling? Your 18 week bump was super cute. I think the sitting high is a twin thing.

    Was meant to find out the genders today but our ob called in sick and her receptionist resceduled for tomorrow... kind of annoyed me cause I took the day off work and now I have to take tomorrow off as well and I feel guilty using so much sick leave when im not sick (and if I need it latet).

    Speaking of sick, im so sorry to hear that many of you girls are sick... this awful weather really doesnt help! I wish you all a speedy recovery :-)

    Megs I think you are a great midwife, and anyone would be very lucky to have you as their midwife. I think bf is a very controversial issue, and I dont understand why? I had engorgement both times, and the first time, I cried so much as I felt I was a failure as a mum and the two midwives pushing me to keep doing it made me feel worse. I understand it is best, but I really did try my hardest, bloodied nipples and all. I tried evetything, more regular feeds, ice packs under my arms, on my boobs etc whatever the midwives suggested I tried. The lactation nurse tried to help as well but in the end, the engorgement was too much of a problem ( I tried expressing and only got 15mls in an hour). I was a little traumatised after that experience from the two midwives, but everyone else just said that it was ok, I tried when they saw how upset I was.

    The second time around, I mixed fed my son. I had disastrous results (he kept having diahorrea after each feed ) as the engorgement made it hard to get th3 milk out again. And the bleeding nipples was also hard to deal with. After 2 weeks, the midwives told me to just try bottlefeeding to see if tge diahorrea would stop...and it did. She was soooo supportive!

    I hope it all works out with bf for you, I cant imagine having to feed two hungry mouths!! Dont feel guilty!

    Oh megs, the funny thing is about bf, I see mums just take out their boob and feed their bub easy peesy!!!! I just cant understand why I cant do it?!?! I have tried reading tips, and all the educational stuff, and somehow I just cant get the engorgement under control or sorted?@

    Third time lucky I hope, and im going to try and attend all the breastfeeding classes at the hospital again, see if that helps. I hope I can do it, its the most amazing feeling (even with all the pain).

    Sorry for the debate on MW's!!! I certainly didn't mean for that to happen! For me it's just been the one MW, and she is probably great for someone else, but if you aren't going to listen to me when you ask me a question, well that's just being rude. No matter whether you know about IVF or not.

    Megs, good luck with the bf/bottles!

    And to everyone else no matter the choice you take, or is forced upon you by circumstances out of your control (frenchy?). It's all hard enough without everyone else's opinion on what you should or shouldn't do.
