    Julie, I know it seems like an awfully practical way to approach your concerns, esp when you're only getting your head around two little poppets growing in your tummy but if you felt like it you could list your individual concerns here & we could try and work through them with you. If nothing else it might help to clear your head.

    @Bib the LH increased a little but no surge hence the wait and see on friday approach i think. Devastating really. the nurse said dr reviewed all results and wants to go ahead to wait and see friday. Another words take your trigger and hope alot.
    Sorry @infinity888 as if EPU isn't a stressful enough time, as someone said can you DTD as much as possible? Try and catch any eggs that may have been released early if that is what has happened? I didn't know you could ovulate without a surge.....

    Oh JM, I can appreciate it must be stressful love. I must confess I've put so much energy into focussing on actually getting pregnant, that things like survival after pregnancy hasn't even been considered! I just always figured that sort of thing would sort itself out in the wash, so to speak.

    BIB gave some great advice earlier. Definitely get in touch with Centrelink and see what you're entitled to money-wise.

    I know the thought of actually being responsible for TWO babies must be overwhelming too. I guess at the end of the day, looking after ONE is a big change! I suspect though (and this is just what I've seen with friends and their babies of course) that after a little while you will get some sort of routine in place and it will get easier. Hopefully by the time DP has to get back to work you will have hit your stride.

    I am thinking of you love, it doesn't get any easier after the BFP, does it? Plus you will probably be feeling tired and icky and your hormones are going like crazy, which doesn't help things either. Try and get as much rest in as you can, and plenty of good food too. You have many months to ponder how to proceed once those beautiful babies come, and I truly do feel that things will fall into place for you.

    Lots of hugs for you


    Blossom

    @JulieMalooley I went Public & was classified High Risk. The level of care I received was exemplary Luv up at the RBWH which is where you would be sent. You'd be classified as High Risk too so would be looked after by the OB team in the Mat Outpatients Dep't & the Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialists upstairs no doubt.

    Yes it sucked sharing a room but was a small price to pay as we were broke too with no savings left/no PHI after IVF. I know that the women with multiples were given their own room. Just a thought though I totally understand if you want to go Private😊xo

    Labs do make mistakes, and not everyone is the same as far as BT results are concerned. What is abnormal for some people might be normal for others - that's just how it goes! These things are not exact sciences - they are indicators only, and whilst no-one can guarantee anything in this life, I would still hold out hope if I were you. At the end of the day, you SAW your follies on the scan and I for one am still that they are still bl@@dy there tomorrow for you!

    And if they're not.....? Then we will be here to support you and hold you up when you can't do it for yourself. We will help you find a Plan B and we will be there for you when you move forward with it. Whatever happens, you will be ok love.

    @JulieMalooley Is your car big enough to fit both bubs in the back??

    I know DP will need his ute for work...is it brand new/paid off?? Maybe he can trade/sell for a good quality used dual cab that the bubs will be able to go in the back of as well so you're not just relying on the 1 car???😐

    No BIB I don't want to go private. Lots of babies are born just fine in public, and besides, we don't have thousands of dollars to spend on it. I'm kind of hoping the local public hospital - which is 5 minutes from my home - will look after me. I can only try... The RBWH is no doubt exemplary, but again, its a long way from home.

    Yeah...it's a big enough hospital near you I'm just not sure if they have a Special Care nursery etc if bubs are born a little early like 35/36 weeks. I think Caboolture does though that might be just as far as the RBWH???😐

    I have a mazda 3 which is a great car and would probably do the job, but we had planned on upsizing to a mazda CX5. The lease works really well for me because of the huge kms I drive to work but I won't be doing anywhere near as much for the next couple of years obviously so maybe I should just hang on to the car we have. No, DP insists that a twin cab has too small a tray. He's a plasterer so yes he probably does need a long tray for the sheets. He's talking about getting a cheaper third car but that's just ridiculous and too much added expense. He's also said he can swap with his Dad when we need another car (4wd, no tray) but you can't just chop and change cars all the time. Big sigh. He actually said to me last night - stop jumping the gun, we can worry about all this in 3-4 months time. I mean seriously WTF !! By then we will only be a month or two from being dropped in the poo big time !
