    Longchamp bags are really light and handy but they aren't that durable. After regular use the material starts to tear at the corners.

    I bought a petunia picklebottom city carryall from totsntales when it was on sale. Think it was in the 130 range as well. I bought quite a colourful one but now i'm not sure if i want one so colourful! lol. I got a free matching one with the pram so i spose i could always use that one if i want something more low key :P There's so many to choose from. You can get ones from coach as well and they are expensive! Even tho Coach bags are terrible quality. All made in china i think. Wow storksak is expensive!

    I looked at coach, mbmj, and a few other brands. But in the end it's a nappy bag. Can't justify that much money. If it's a normal bag I'll be prepared to pay a lot more. I have a thing for designer handbag lol.

    Oh yours look nice and colourful. Love it. I just worry it gets dirty easily

    For my normal bags, I like brown or beige. Like lighter colour bag but they are harder to keep clean.

    It's good I don't own any longchamp then if it doesn't last long.

    Yeh i'm worried it'll get dirty easily too because i didn't realise the pattern i got wasn't pvc. Mine is material and some of the others is pvc. Anyways see how i go. The reviews said it's still easy to clean but not sure how.

    hehe i had a thing for designer bags. But i haven't bought any since coming back to australia. It's such a rip off here.

    I think longchamp is good tho. Just not good for everyday bag altho it did last me about 2 years. I have one now i use as a beach bag and it hasn't torn yet.

    Oh hopefully still very easy to clean @Gelati

    Yeah so exxy here. Much cheaper in the states and Europe. That's where I bought mine too. But don't think I'll buy another designer bag for a while. It's all about the baby now. The money can be spent on my baby haha.

    So i got a call today from Genetics... my PGD results are in... wasn't expecting its only been a little over 2weeks. 1 was abnormal double chromosome 5 & 12.. the 2nd was normal...

    Lots of tears... I think relief but also just letting go ... i think I've been holding on a little since Friday.. So we have 1... I'm going to contact my FN tomorrow start chatting about FET even though i can't get into LB til friggin 21 Oct. Discuss the use of intrapllids as an option... We're also considering maybe doing another EPU instead of FET... its hard to know what to do.. with medicare changes coming up and the end of year and safety net reboot.... $$ is a bit of an issue

    But then I dont want to do an EPU .. what if that lone frosty is the one?
    So hard.. hate these decisions

    @Tanej18: i am sorry to hear that it isn't what you would like to hear. It only takes one! Have a chat with the FN. FET is quite straight forward so can you do a FET before seeing LB? You don't need a FS to administer the intralipid. Any nurse can do it and just need the FS clearance. Other than DrNL, i don't know who else is doing it, though. Otherwise, you can do it on the side without her. It is a difficult decision. Some people will prefer to bank embryo due to age. I would have done the FET and then decide what's next because it is a lot of $ to throw in for many STIM while the frosty might just be the one. However, age is on my side so situation can be different from person to person. xx

    Sorry about all the pregnancy talking here!
    @Gelati and @Minib: saw OB today. Last min change on the appt day. Bub has dropped. He advised me not to start the hand expressing until after 37w because breast stimulation might bring on labor. Judging from his typical induction schedule, I might be closer to 39w than 38w for the date. However, he is fine if bub comes whenever after 37w. But i am not ready!! I somehow have my mind set after 38w now. I certainly can't miss last few days of work. Oh...and he started me on insulin tonight. He is happy with my diet but the last 2 weeks is crucial to get the level stabilized. This is good for bub and helps him when he is born. Oh well........

    Yes, your time will come!! Whatever you decide next, we are hear to listen!
    @Gelati: oh..one last thing. I just queried OB today about whereabout the placenta is. I know it is located at anterior. That's it. Apparently, it is on the left anterior. Ha...it makes sense to both of us now why bub likes to lean on the right side!

    @Tanej78 sorry the other one wasn't normal but glad one is. I'm not sure what I would do in your shoes or another epu or fet. I thought about it last time given I'm younger maybe I should bank a few more embryo. But in the end we risked it to finish with our embryos first before going for another epu. That's before I know Medicare won't give anymore rebate next year. Not happy. Your current frosty could be the one. It only takes one. Tough decision though. Talk to your DH and we will support you.
    @bbhope home stretch now. Only less than 2 weeks to go. Don't stress about work. If it happens, it happens. But hopefully your bubba waits for the induction date.

    I'm sorry you didn't hear good news for both embies @Tanej78 but it really only does take one. How crappy you can't see LB until later in Oct. i guess that's the downside of seeing a FS that is very popular. At least you know you are in good hands tho. That is a tough decision. If it were me i'd probably use up the one frosty first before moving to another cycle. It is a tough decision. Especially with cost factors etc. And yes it will be you one day! it is with this frostie!
    @bbhope - does dropped mean he is engaged now? Wow! Minib is right, don't worry about work bbhope, what happens, will happen. And if your boss doesn't understand that then stuff him! He is not worth the effort. How exciting.....you could be meeting bub anytime now! very excited for you. Oh and yes, that makes sense why your bub is happy sleeping to the right They didn't tell me which side placenta is on, just that it's high up. I feel kicks to the left and right but most of the time it is centre so i think it's mostly posterior.
    @Minib - how do the medicare changes effect ivf? Does that mean we no longer get rebates when doing FET and are fully out of pocket? (assuming there are no other out of pocket expenses that year)
