Sorry I haven’t been getting on much lately. Between work, a now 2yo (eeek) and being preggie life has been slightly full on! I have tried to catch up as much as possible.
@SJ565 Its so hard deciding when to finish. With DD I stopped at 35 weeks but was in a very high pressure long hours job. I was over ready by that stage! This time I am officially stopping at 36 weeks but will probably do some casual hours the week after. I am intending on taking the few weeks before bub comes to just spend one-one time with my DD – starting to mourn our last solo time together which is crazy but I hear very normal!
I changed jobs to a far less stressful role within the same industry after DD and came back 4 days instead of 5 days. Best thing I have done. Would love to do 3 days max but financially I have to do 4 days unfort. You can always start less days and work up depending on how it works for your new wee family?
@Lisa Maria my due date hasn’t changed at all. With the FET my OB (also an FS) sticks with the dates but just leaves it that bubs size fluctuates. Are you seeing a private or public OB? I have other friends that are in the public system and their OBs also change due dates for IVFers.
@freakedout44 I did notice that bubs movements fluctuated in the early days. Agree though – if you are ever worried call you OB or hospy ward and ask for some monitoring. I had CTG monitoring once with my DD as I didn’t feel she moved a lot that day, she of course instantly started moving as soon as they hooked me up but at least I knew all was okay. It sends you bonkers doesn’t it.
27 weeks now. Passed my GD test a few weeks ago and all other blood work is looking good. The GD test was horrid blergh! I spent 45mins in a ball just trying to keep the liquid in!
I can’t believe I start my 3rd trimester on Friday! What?! My morning sickness is still here but just nausea now, I have stopped actual vomiting finally. I had the same with DD my entire pregnancy so did expect this would happen. I have been doing a specialised Pilates program twice per week plus physio sessions because of my lower back pain. My physio recommended I use a sacroiliac joint belt to help – amazing amazing! I have to be very careful what I do but its manageable now.
I have been told I have a glow now….. don’t feel glowly but I will take the compliment
I have no idea what to get ready and sorted for a second bubba. I think we will be doing a lot of organising over the Christmas holidays with more car seats and working out what to do with a pram for two kidlets. Bub is getting DDs nursery which is gender neutral so that makes that job much easier (although I do have intense desire to buy many many baby items lol).
Hope you are all well ladies
