Well I do come in from time to time and read along and am so glad to hear that your pregnancies are going well and that there has even been a baby born. I hope you keep well Thee.
I am doing a walkathon on Sunday to raise money and awareness for the Teddy Love Club. I have started stocking one of our maternity hospitals near me with resources and teddies. I thought I would post my fundraising link in here.
Big hugs and belly rubs to you all.

Shadow- I wasn't a big swimmer before being pg but have been determined to keep as active as possible! The closest preggy classes to me (besides at the hospy) are like over half an hour away so I know what you mean! BUTcan I just say when I see ppl who are overweight or whatever swimming laps I don't see anyone going 'omg check that out' I actually think 'good on them for doing something' especially if I saw you with a preggy belly!! Hope that makes sense!!
Sniper- glad things are going well! Always an excellent feeling!!
Thee- hope everything is ok!!! Rest up Hun and how exciting that you might get to meet your princess so soon!!!
Had my first real craving tonight- vanilla ice cream with choc topping! So glad we had some at home!!!

OMG angelbubs... i didnt even know such a charity existed... Just reading the front page made me cry, amazing to see that ur raising awareness.
Super... I guess ur right, I really want to but dont think i could ever go alone!! SIL wants to begin swimming so might con her into comming.

Lisa- love your work, i'll go and have a sticky at your link.
superstar- yum to the icecream with topping- i think youhave inspired me for today! it's so easy to get a food urge from reading other's posts. so far I havent had any real cravings either- you know the desperate ones where you SIMPLY MUST EAT IT RIGHT NOW OR EVERYONE WILL DIE.
Thee- keep us posted if you can- I wasnt aware there was a cab ready to roll off the rank this soon!!! yay for baby watch.
shadow- i like the start of the year because thus far I am the only one with a birthday! but as if this Feb I will have a little mate around the similar time- albeit 6 weeks apart. I can handle that.
Hi to everyone else- that's as far as I can see back- hope everyone is enjoying their weekends.

Just another quickie from me...i will sit down one of these days and check in on everyone else!
Had the Dr's again on Friday and my blood pressure has come down a LOT. So at this stage i won't need to be induced. Need to keep an eye on it and am back there on Wed for another check. Still need to stay on the BP medication and take it easy.
In some ways i am kind of disappointed cause i would have loved to meet my little girl earlier!! Especially considering they already think she will be 8-8.5 pounds!!! Don't want to overcook her cause she might end up a 10 pounder!!
Will try and get on soon for personals.
In the meantime look after yourselves and those beautiful bumps

I hope everyone is travelling well and looking after those burgeoning baby bumps! It's nice to see so many moving over to this thread. Hopefully those in the TTC thread won't be far behind.
Super - how is your active little boy going? Its so comforting once you can feel them kick around but not so good when you are trying to get a decent night's sleep!! I was swimming too but i have given it up now cause i am terrified my waters might break in the pool!! Plus i think the lifeguard was getting a bit concerned when me and my huge bump waddled in!!
Shadow - what a busy few months you will have next year!! Great news about the bargain carpet you got! And glad your scan was all good. Now the countdown till you can find out what it is. Not sure where in melbourne you are but we went to a fantastic 3d/4d place in High Street rd, Malvern. They were so good and we got to take the DVD straight away. It's amazing, we saw her smile, yawn, chew. I had a cup of coffee and some choc before we went in and she didn't stop moving!! It was $199 for the DVD and some printed pictures.
Mela - hope your shadow is not driving you nuts!! I know it seems like a long time to train someone but unfortunately you never know what may happen! My work left it so late to employ someone that i only ended up with her for 3 days before i had to finish! I don't know how she is going to cope. are you feeling a little better now?
Truly - hope your little girl is growing well and it won't be much longer till she can come home. I love the name Olivia but it is one my DH wouldn't even consider
Sniper - when was your scan? Must be soon.Can't believe how close everyone is getting!!
Lisa - thanks for popping in! Love to see how you are going. Great work with TLC. Keep in touch
FF - not long now!!! Can't believe we're almost there!
to anyone i have forgotten.
AFM - as i posted previously, my bp has come back down so the Dr is happy to leave bubba where she is for now. I keep getting comments about how she is a big baby so i hope she doesn't stay in too much longer!! Now that i have finished work i am ready for her to come!!
Everything is ready to go and it really is just a waiting game now.
Will keep you all posted and hopefully not too much longer before i can hold my little girl
Look after yourselves and your beautiful baby bumps

Thee- I can't believe how close it is for you now!! Waiting would be the most frustrating part!
Little man is good! Think he had a growth spurt over the weekend as he went quiet and sleepy for a couple of days and today he is back to his normal self only now I can physically feel where he is specifically! Helps that after my scan on Saturday I know roughly where his head is!!
Will put pic up of my 4d scan! Was amazing but as I said he was sleepy- and stubborn!
Made ne laugh about the swimmingcomment!! I'll keep going as long as I can/feel comfortable!! I'm enjoying stating active!!

Well hello ladies! I am sorry I know it has been an absolute age since I have posted, I don't know where time is going at the moment.
LOL I am not going to be able to type this now, have been trying for an hour with no success so I will try log on again tonight from home and do it.
Hope you are all well, belly rubs to all of you.

Hello again girls! I am trying this again, this time from an empty house that has nothing left for me to do in it! DH is working late tonight, the dog is walked, vacuuming done, washing put away.... etc etc etc I don't know why I seem so much more busy these days doing menial things?! Obviously things take more effort than before
I am going to try do personals but there are SO many pages to trawl through I apologise in advance for either commenting on something really old or if I miss out on anything.
Sniper - how are you?! Your scan must be coming up pretty soon? Hope you're feeling a bit more energetic, and I doubt that your age of physical condition have anything at all to do with the tiredness! LOL! I am younger and would GLADLY be in bed an snoring by 8pm every night.
Shadow - how exciting you are getting everything ready and that your scan showed a perfect healthy bubba! I remember noticing our little girl's spine and ribs on the scan and thinking it was amazing how detailed everything was already! So cute. Hope you are feeling well.
Super - how was your 4D scan? Even though you had a sleepy and stubborn little man to deal with? He is showing a lot of personality already! Did they mention anything about his size or do you think your OB is just beign overcautious? I don't think you have uploaded pics yet or were you not going to use one as your avatar? DH and I are tossing up maybe having one ourselves, do you need a referral or anything? Oh poo I just read your ice cream and chocolate topping post... now I am going to want some and there is NOTHING nice in the house! I have seriously opened the pantry door about 5 times and stared in there as if I am hoping something yummy will miraculously appear of it's own accord without me having to go to the shops! Good on you for keeping up your swimming too, I can't swim to save myself, well I suppose I could but laps are just not an option! So I have been keeping active by walking the dog every day (he is good motivation, every time I don't walk him far enough he eats a plant, kind of keeps you on your toes) but now I am finding even if I pee 3 times before I go the pressure of my uterus on my bladder makes things very uncomfortable! So I had 4kms of thinking "gee I think I might wet myself" until I get home and stop walking and the pressure stops! Very annoying. Ha ha baby is kicking me, think she can hear me complaining about her squashing me?
Fireflies - hope you are loving being on maternity leave and are getting some well deserved rest? Sounds like you are getting everything organised around the house with blinds etc? How did you go at the OBS? Were you right in thinking bubs had dropped a lot more? Hope you are well and taking it very easy.
Thee - sorry to hear you weren't well but I am very happy your BP has come down and things are a bit better. I wonder if your dream of your bub coming on the 24th will come true? If so it isn't far away!!! My shadow is going well and I am completely over my cold. Find the continual training at work a bit hard but I am trying to remind myself I probably have reduced patience levels so I should take a deep breath and try to relax! Had a fair few people having time off work for functions/ holidays/ sickness and I always seem to be the person to take up the slack - no one stops to think maybe the pregger lady doesn't feel like doing extra hours or extra work and could use a rest herself! Oh well it is my own fault for filling the gaps for 6 years now they just assume I can/will do it without any apparent effort. ONLY 9 WEEKS TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!
Lisa - lovely to hear from you darl, and good on your for your fundraising efforts. I made a small donation, sorry it isn't heaps but if every gave you that you'd be at your target in no time! Just realised the walk has already been - hope the donation wasn't too late!
I can't see anyone else to do a personal too although I am sure I have missed someone along the line. Hope that you are all well and your bumps are growing!
Woops best I do an AFM bit, I am 27 weeks now and much bigger than I was ha ha. If I slouch when sitting my boobs actually rest on my belly and my belly button is starting to distort! Pretty cool but at the same time a bit freaky ha ha. I wake up so many times during the night to pee that I have it down to a fine art of just waddling there and back and straight to sleep again ha ha. Feel really good on the whole, just getting a bit of back pain but only really minor and the pressure on bladder when walking thing but I will live through that! I find I can't cope as well as I used to and get a bit tired/overwhelmed by pressure quicker than I used to but I am putting that down to hormones ha ha!! Getting a quote on new blinds tomorrow, got to pick the cot up whenever mothercare decide to ring to say it is in from Sydney and then go from there. Getting organised I suppose....
Okay ladies time for me to go to bed, take care everyone.

Just a quickie to say thanks so much Em for the sponsorship. The walkathon was such an amazing and empowering experience. I got to meet the family of a really strong lady from bubhub who lost her son to still birth which was definately the highlight of my day.
The sponsorship meant so much to me - and even though i have done the walk i will keep fundraising until October.
