    @bbhope bummer my jeans and pants are mid rise haha. My friend has actually told me that I can just use her belly belt but I can't tell her about my pregnancy yet. So hopefully I can last 6 more weeks before I need belly belt. Really doubt it. Otherwise I will need to buy.

    Is your ob appointment tomorrow? Good luck!

    I think the Doppler is a great investment for you. You are using it heaps and got a lot out of it. That's awesome.

    I also heard homemade lunch isn't good if reheated the next day. Well it's not really an issue right now as I hate the smell of reheated food. It smells different. I only want freshly cooked food these days. It makes me high maintenance haha. DH told me to just buy anything that I feel like so I've been having heaps of noodle and rice. But I'm also being a bit cautious in case I get gestational diabetes if I eat too much rice.

    Also have a feeling I'm having a boy. Not sure why.

    Urgh wrote a long message and bubhub deleted it! *angry face*

    @Emerald26 great hcg levels. Any news from your specialist? Surely they have faced this situation before and can manage it. I'm sure women all pregnant without even knowing they have thyroid issue until they go get tested. Hope all is going well.

    @Minib - yep we'll find out the gender but don't have an OB appointment for another 3 weeks and ultrasound for another 4. Meanwhile my belly is getting bigger and a belt isn't working that great to be honest. My pants still feel tight and I feel like I need the zip halfway down! I know about the eating as well. I think a lot of my bigness is fat rather than baby! Lol.

    @bbhope - I've relaxed on my eating as well. For exact same reasons. I'm like, I can't eat anything!! And having noodles and rice is surely less healthy than have salads or sandwiches etc. so I just make sure it's from a reputable cafe. Even if it's more expensive. I still reheat home cooked meals and eat cooked sushi.

    Default Day 5 blasto FET on day 4?

    I think gestational diabetes is genetic related. I haven't eaten anything extra sugar etc this pregnancy but glucose level is always higher than normal. I tested every year due to family history and it was normal back in Jan before the IVF. I will get retested again since I am now off steroid, which i hope is the culprit.

    Haha.....gelati. My DH said that i am very chubby and well fed. It is more fat than baby. LOL. I agree.

    When i was at the conference, they only served cold sandwiches for lunch. I just picked vegetarian option but still with raw veges. No choice but to eat. And FX. Also, the flights i was on only serve tap water! Neither tap water, juice nor soda water are healthy. You can see the problem if we are being very picky. Just avoid the obvious, I guess.

    Ya, I love noodles especially i can just throw it into the pot with veges etc and it is done in 10--15 mins. Not instant noodles. You can find organic japanese noodles at the grocery stores. Well, I'll eat less to avoid gestational diabetes but from what i read, it is hard to avoid if it is in the family.

    @bbhope I'm the same - at work I still will eat sandwiches provided at a conference. Better than starving. I also eat the ones with chicken or ham. I know the cafe my work gets them from and trust them. But it's all about what you're comfortable with. I feel like it's ok. My OB also said its ok. Just no raw meat, fish and alcohol. He didn't say anything about no deli but I try to avoid it if I can. But sometimes I still have it.

    Oh noodles and rice I meant for lunch at those Chinese places. I don't think they are very healthy and would rather get a salad or sandwich. Ones you make at home is fine and you can put in heaps of vegies. But yes I've been relatively loose with what I eat but still strict in some ways. Trying to eat healthy and avoid the raw stuff and deli where I can. Def no alcohol. I still have the occasional soft drink. Basically just reducing the amount of bad stuff I eat and increase vegies/fruit.

    I didn't realise tap water is bad. Even in Australia? I have tap water at home all the time.

    I hope u don't get GA. Me too. It doesn't run in my family but I should still monitor the amount of sweet stuff and carbs I'm eating.

    Tap water is fine in Australia. I drink it everyday. It is the hot/tap water on flight. Because at that altitude, hot water isn't boiled to 100C. The tank is the best place to host bacteria. No idea how often the clean it. Also, no idea where they get the tap water for the flight. It tasted awful. I tried to avoid it but couldn't in the end as you know that we can't bring bottled on international flights. This is not Qantas and i know Qantas uses bottled water both domestic and international. I didn't fuss about the airplane food as long as it is reheated hot.

    Oh airplane water. But I Thot you can buy water after the security scan? Either from a vending machine or thy have these little shops. Otherwise I'm sure you can get a bottle of water from themi on the flight. They must provide that to their first class ppl. I'm not sure which company you flew with but all that I've been on have bottled water available. Esp those mini ones. But if the flight you were on didn't have it then it sux. That's pretty terrible service in my opinion.

    Noodles from those Asian places isn't good. High in salt and probably has msg. But right now, I eat what I can stomach. I am of Asian background so more prone to gestational diabetes I heard. My ob is quite relaxed with food he said I can eat ham if I want. Runny egg yolk is also fine as long as when you touch the egg it's warm. To be honest it end it's all quite confusing. And some friends are so strict. Some aren't. Sometimes I feel women judge other women what they eat during their pregnancy. I heard people say no prawn. I eat lots of freshly cooked prawn. I love prawn. It's confusing and hard to know haha. As long as the food doesn't look dodgy I think we should be ok?

    @Emerald26 how are you going?

    Has anyone else struggle with smell? Deodorant, perfume etc? Man I hate being in a meeting room when someone wears perfume or after shave. Smell foul. I had to breathe slowly so I don't spew lol

    @Minib I def think women judge each other. That's why I don't tell people what I eat anymore. I think as long as you are comfortable then it's fine. Oh I ate those noodles and stuff in the first trimester too. I just crave it and cos of MS I just ate what I felt like so completely know what you mean.

    I didn't have too much problem with smell but know some girls who did. Apparently having a lemon handy helps. My friend used to smell that at her desk. I Found smelling a nectarine helped in general so I would take that into meetings. Lol

    That's true @Gelati as long as you are comfortable. I also don't like people making comment on other pregnant women things like 1 alcohol is fine just drink it. Hasn't happened to me as I haven't told people but have seen it happened to other friends.

    Oh lemon is a good idea! One time I had to cut the meeting short as I felt sick and couldn't breathe
