    That would be really great if you can - well done! I'm secretly doing a little every time I think of you at the moment ...

    Hi Nomes! Whereabouts in Perth are you? I'm in Port Kennedy

    Congratulations on not only your pregnancy (how exciting!), your weightloss (well done!) and the nice, strong symptoms you are having! I hope that the progesterone does it's thing and you end up with a beautiful baby in your arms this time.

    Will you be going through KEMH? I am as I'm high risk and they have been fantastic so far.

    Found out on wednesday that I have a beautiful little girl with a healthy heart on board So many of my anxieties have been eased in the course of one ultrasound! I have to have another ultrasound in 4 weeks specifically having another look at the heart to see if they have missed anything but they're pretty sure that they haven't and have ruled out the need for a foetal echo at this stage. Just a tad excited here ...

    Catch you lovely ladies later!

    OMG! Have you and M had a chance to talk names yet??

    We need to talk too... Personal stuffs...
    I'm feeling quietly confident about not having an echo - I had a really good sonographer who, at my request spent ages looking at her heart and we got some really clear vision of it. We've established that there's 4 perfectly proportioned chambers, the arteries are attached in the right places, the blood flow is spot on with no evidence of leakage/mixing and the heartbeat is strong. We'll check again but both Mark and I are satisfied that we've got a heart healthy little girl. I suppose it helps when I've been so paranoid so have researched things and have had expereince of what abnormal looks like.

    Names ... don't talk to me about names! We can't come up with anything that both of us like that has a nice meaning! I mean, I can't go around calling Bella "beautiful and pure", Daniel "independant and strong as a rock" then call this child something like "bitterness and misery", can I ... We've pretty much used all of the names we love so are going to have to take our time to fall in love with another one ...

    SMS me and let me know when the best time to call will be next week - Bella's got St John Ambulance state comps tomorrow so we're busy and it's supposed to be raining on wednesday (only have reasonable mobile reception outside ), so that's out for me. So, let me know a day/time outside of those and I'll call you ...

    Thanks ladies

    Been on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster the past couple of days, tiniest bit of spotting - well I can't say spotting as much as discolouration of my CM (but only on occassions, not constant and ever so slight) but a bit of cramping that has been ongoing for over a week, assuming it is all just implantation as I ovulate between CD18-19 but 22 this time, so after our experience last year, I am a mess. Trying not to worry, but just can't help it!!
    Off to the Fertility carer this afternoon, so will fill her in on not only the news, but the discolouring. No doubt she'll send me off for blood tests and hopefully throw me on her bed and pull out her u/s and check things out, give me some piece of mind is all I am really hoping!

    Ky - I'm in Thornlie! Not sure about hospitals or anything yet ... would hope for Murdoch being so close to home, but will chat with Dr this afternoon ... roll on 1pm, I just want to see her already and get this process started.

    How hard is it to keep your mouth closed this early on when all you wanna do is scream it to the world?

    Well ladies,

    Dreams shattered, again.

    I went to our clinic yesterday and was sent for blood tests that came back negative.
    She has no ide why we had 3 positive HPT's - all different types, inc 1 digital on different days, all the sympoms and yet the blood test showed my hcg at 6 instead of like 50.
    So it''s back to the drawing board, next step for us is for me to have my tubes checked and keep on with the progesterone program.
    Even though we had ruled this month out as our month as it was a crazy charting month, it was a more than welcome surprise, but apparently it's not meant to be. Still waiting for my period, which because of my late ovulation it should be due tomorrow.
    Think I prefer the idea of not been pregnant than another miscarriage ... anyway it's raw all the same and I'm teary and emotional. So hopefully I will be back in the next few months with much better news.

    Wishing you all lots of love and sticky baby vibes for healthy happy pregnancies xxx

    I'm so sorry, Nomes ... hopefully we will see you posting in here again some time in the near future with a wonderfully sticky and healthy little one.

    In the mean time, take care of yourself, be encouraged that you are doing so well and be gentle with yourself.

    Hi Ladies :-) I'm 15 weeks pregnant with number #2 and weigh 116kgs, which is the lowest I've weighed in a very long time, in fact I lost 20kgs in my efforts to fall pregnant. I am a bit worried about how much weight I've put on, will put on and whether or not I will be able to lose the weight once I've had the baby. Before getting pregnant I was doing the Isowhey Complete meal replacements, which are actually safe when pregnant and breastfeeding. But I was starting to get bored of the flavours. Has anyone else used any other meal replacements or protein shakes during pregnancy? Maybe on their Drs advice? I have an appointment to see my Dr this coming Thursday and will ask his advice and maybe for a referral to a dietician but I thought I would ask you lovely ladies as well. I was a part of this thread in 08/09 when I was pregnant with my DD.

    Hi ladies - can I join?

    DH & I have been TTC (seriously) for about 1.5 yrs now and this year we started seeing a fertility specialist. I have PCOS, Hypothyroidism & of course am very overweight (approx 125kg). I've dieted my whole life but never been able to lose all the weight or keep anything off, I'm now at my heaviest ever . Ideally I wanted to lose weight before TTC or falling PG, but because of my age and my PCOS we decided we needed to give it a serious try despite my weight (DH is normal weight and always has been).

    To my surprise and delight, this last round of FSH injections + trigger was a success!!! I'm pregnant!! for the first time in my life! I'm about 3 weeks along (or 5 weeks gestational) - still don't really understand which one I go by?? So EDD would be somewhere around 25 May 2012. I'm having a scan on 7th October, so hoping to confirm EDD then.

    I'm really worried about lots of things due to my weight and this pregnancy - even silly things like "people won't be able to tell, because I just look fat", not feeling kicks, not being able to walk (already have foot problems), being forced to have a c-section because of weight, looking ugly instead of beautifully pregnant, being treated like crap by Dr's/professionals, and of course my weight causing early miscarriage!

    I need to find an OB but I really don't know who to choose because I have no idea if they will be kind or mean about my weight - it's not like I WANTED to be fat and pregnant, but I'm running out of time (age-wise) and I've been trying forever to lose weight without success.

    I want to go to North West Private in Brisbane - Dr Watson is my fertility specialist, but he's fully booked for May (already!), so I need to find another OB - Any recommendations???

    sorry for the long post

    Welcome and congratulations!

    Please don't worry too much about how your weight is going to effect your pregnancy. You may find that you tire easier or that your blood pressure and weight need to be monitored a little closer than others or your choice of birth centre may be limited but other than that, overweight pregnant women are having beautiful, healthy babies all of the time!

    When I am pregnant, despite being obese, you can tell I'm pregnant! I don't have the "basketball stuffed up my shirt" look, but it would take someone pretty stupid to not realise that the lump out the front was all baby!

    It makes no different what size you are as to whether you feel kicks. Initially, what you feel are your baby's movements causing your uterus to bump against various internal organs/structures/nerve endings which have absolutely no difference in obese people to thin people. External movements are more restricted by whether you have an anterior placenta or not. I could see my baby moving around in my belly and DH (and the kids) could feel the baby from around 24 weeks. This time, I have an anterior placenta and am only feeling kicks very low so it is possible that movement may not be so easily seen or felt by my family.

    Weight has absolutely no bearing on how you birth. I have had caesars due to medical issues completely unrelated to my weight. I know many ladies who have been bigger than me at the time of birth and have gone on to have vaginal births with no complications whatsoever. A caesar should only ever be offered as a last resort and most hospitals have this policy.

    I have never been treated "crappy" becasue of my weight. This is my 6th pregnancy and yet again, I am at a different hospital with a different team and have had nothing but fantastic care. Sure, I have been told to try not to put on too much weight, but I am a type 1 diabetic so it is a health issue more than anything. I have never gone private or had a private ob etc and have found that I have been very well looked after every time.

    I'm 41 and 22 weeks pregnant with my 7th baby. I have 2 living children and 4 who have passed away at various stages (3 in the second trimester, one at 9 days old). I had my first child at 31yo and found that my easiest pregnancy by far was when I was 38yo! This time, I'm a little more tired but other than that, all is well.

    I wish you all the best. You are carrying a much loved and much wanted child - congratulations again!
