Petal40 I can't believe you're that far already ! 6 weeks ahead of me. Were you even looking remotely pregnant before you popped? We have our nuchal scan next Wednesday. DP has promised me that THEN he will start talking and thinking about what we are going to do, names, leave etc. finally !
@Blossom74 recipe please... That looks deeeelish ! I need one now ! @midnite01 you must be going through some torture. Why can't it ever be easy? I'm hoping for better news for you soon. @MamaKes, today went well. The baby cakes were divine and my lumpy semi risen lemonade scones were so light and delicious, surprisingly.. We put up a congratulations banner, put the cakes out, people turned up (heaps of them cod everyone was wondering what the surprise morning tea was about), they looked at the cakes and everyone looked around the room asking who was pregnant. Nobody cottoned on till I said 'me'. Guess I really am too old huh ! Lol
Let's just say lots of people were shocked.
THEN one of the two people at work who knew ages ago that I did IVF announced at the top of her voice 'so all that money was wasted hey Julie?' She thinks I stopped IVF and this was a natural miracle because I treated my ANA. Um... Yeah, thanks big mouth. NOBODY else knows about the IVF you stupid beeatch ! FFS. This is why I'm now not telling anyone at work ANYTHING ! Of course when I finally announce its twins, they will all assume, but I'm just going to deny. Stuff em, it's not their business.

@JulieMalooley I can't believe it either! I've had a little tummy since about 13/14 weeks, but could pretty much hide it with the right clothes. Have just popped over the last week really. DH and I haven't really done much either - I put a pram away on lay-by last week as it was on sale, and we were in Brisbane (no where to buy a pram in Toowoomba anymore, both places shut down in the last 6 months). We have talked about names, but only because I reminded DH that it took us nearly a year to agree on lights for the house for the bedrooms lol
Good luck with your nuchial, I didn't have one, but have had fortnightly scans with my OB. Looking one forward to the morphology one though.
Bahahahahaha!!! I'll bet everyone was shocked Luv!! Pity about the chick with the big trap!!! I would've been tempted to shove a scone right down her throat for that!!!
Actually Luv, women in their early 40's have an increased risk of naturally falling Preggo with twins anyway As we Lovelies inch ever closer to the "Big M" our ovaries can start firing off an extra egg every now and again increasing the chance of "double trouble" if you hit the fertilisation jackpot Cycle that it happens
Other than your colleague with a loud hailer for a mouth, everything else sounded lovely for your M.T Can't believe your NT is next week too!!! Am sure everything's going to be just fine with the bubba's too
@Tahli, yay that's great news! So glad everything has worked out for your next CT trip! Praying this is it for you! 🙏

Oh Luv, what an awful bloody limbo land to be in hey???
The only way to really know what's going on is to have the scan as your embryo should be at a certain point by then. In fact, if it's late next week you have it, you should be able to see the yolk sac and fetal pole at the very least if not a heartbeat.
You can do the BT if you want to see how your levels are doing as they should also be at a certain level too just like they should be now. They're not and that's why he's not happy. Now, it could be that you had a late implanter and that's why your levels are lagging behind, but again, you won't know until you have a scan.
I'm one of Wazza's Ladies too and I skipped the last Pregnyl booster for the same reasons you did!!! Don't worry about that, it won't have hurt or harmed anything.
Anyhoo Luv, I'm and sending prayers to the Universe that you've got a late implanter on board and that everything will turn out ok for you
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
