Livvy - don't worry too much about personals - esp at work - it can get very busy here!! I had no ms with S and with this one I am having it on and off, so it's different with every pregnancy. I get being worried until 12 weeks. There is a really high % rate of good pregnancy once a hb is seen though, so try to relax a little, and enjoy this time. You can't do anything else. You need to be kind to yourself!

Livvy - it's hard not to worry when we've invested so much into getting pregnant, and had infertility to deal with. It's natural.

Hi guys just wanted to say a BIG thankyou to you all for your kind words/wishes, prayers & congrats etc for our beautiful Zahli. Thankyou also to lady & waiting for passing on f/bk updates to everyone on here. Your all such a supportive bunch from TTC with many many rounds (as we do) to the support during our pregnancys & now I'm feeling the support through the next step, the one we all hang out for.....the birth!!! So thankyou to you all xxxx
Well.....as you all know Zahli is improving & I can now have Zahli snuggles & booby feeds which under the circumstances are going quite well. Poor thing, shes still in alot of pain but she DEFINATLY is one tough cookie. Her left arm is broken & in a splint but as some of you may know already babies actually recover really well from breaks much better than adults especially & children too. With all the tubes & cords & having a drip in one hand all strapped & splint, broken arm the other it is a little tricky to feed her but she is latching very well. I'm feeding her 4 hourly ATM (unless the nusery call for me earlier) We also can't wrap her which is dissapointing as I can feel should would like it to feel secure but can't do with the arm. There's a great chance her drips, cords for monitoring etc, etc, will all come out tomorrow evening & if that's the case she maybe able to go straight from ICU to being in my room, or they may deceide to keep her in the special care nusery for just another night but not in the ICU part. One thing I know for sure is there NOT rushing me out like they usually do once you have a natural delivery. I have firmly told them that I want 1 night with Zahli in my room once she's ready to leave the unit because of all that has happened. I want to feel completely confident knowing the midwives are there if I need them for the night, but have that night to help with bonding in my room & get over my fears about taking her home & not having nurses or anyone there. Probably doesn't make much sense but they understood & actually agreed that I needed that after all that had happened.
I'm feeling a little flat & low. The more I find out & reflect about what had happened makes me teary. At the time of birth I was a bit out of it to say the least & not in any state to know what was actually going on. When I was doing my last pushes I was lying on my back with my legs in stirrups. I had to push whilst they used the forceps & pushed my legs to my thighs whilst I was vomitting & swallowing some as couldn't be on side & all this happened as she came out, where I only saw a quick leg for a split second then they were all surrounding her but I had no idea what was going on. She had stopped breathing for ten minutes & they had to resuscitate her. When I was told in more detail today by the Drs about exactly what was going on makes me feel so many emotions & down that we came so close to losing our beautiful baby. I'm just hoping in time I will feel better & not depressed. One of the obs spoke to me today & said it will be perfectly normal to go through these emotions & even said I will go through a grief process. I hope if that's the case it doesn't last long. I/we know how lucky we are & trying to focus on the positives that she is here & WILL be ok. It just breaks my heart watching her in pain & knowing if they only listened to me NONE of this would of ever happened. Sometimes mothers instinct knows best. They knew my concerns about going term & having a natural delivery. The specialist who screwed up actually came & saw me today & yesterday in the evening actually apologized to me over it all & making the wrong call. Interesting as I really didn't expect that & always thought Drs need to be super careful in saying sorry as its admitting they screwed up?? I could be wrong tho.
Well, shes getting so much better & we are so in love with her & know it's all postitive from now & onwards, I really want & hope to move on from it & not let it get me down.
Funny thing is it's my bday tomorrow & it was the 7th June last year I spent the night at lyel Mac after having a lap. I told one of the nurses that this time next year on my bday I WILL be back here again BUT for much happier reasons!! Yep with a baby & what do you know....yep I'm back at lyell Mac again to the date BUT for the most awesome reason this time!!!! The nurse I told this too looked at me like I was bloody mad!! Would luv to c her again & tell her I was right lol!!

Wow Digby, that's a lot to go through, it's no wonder you're feeling a little glum and grieving. I'm sure it'll take a little while to get over the trauma you went through and the worry you had/have for little Zahli. It's only natural to feel the way youre feeling, and good on you for requesting at least one night with your little girl in your room before leaving the hospital, they should be happy to give you that sort of reassurance i would have thought. Hope you start feeling better soon, I'm sure lots of cuddles with Zahli will help. xxoo

Digby - i just dont know what to say, i have no idea what you must be feeling at the moment.....Makes me feel sick to think your baby girl could have been lost after how hard you fought for her, i guess kinda how i feel about Ned and his abruption - still cant contemplate how very different his birthday could have been......I hope you are getting lots of support with coming to terms with whats happened, and even more support in caring for Zahli when she needs so much care. No doubt one day soon this part will be over and you can all get to enjoy getting to know each other without tubes and splints in the way. Its easy to see where Zahli gets her "tough cookie" attitude from, you are so strong to go through all this and still focus on the positives - you already are and will be again an awesome mum!!!!

Digby - Oh hunny, I don't know what to say. Be kind to yourself, it's ok to feel down after all you've been through, the 3 day blues wont be helping either. Has the hospital offered you, DH and E any counselling? I imagine you've all been traumatized. I agree with LM, you've been so much and are still focussing on the positives, truly awesome! So happy to hear Zahli is improving rapidly.
Happy birthday too!
LM - Glad to hear all went well with Max at CC, I bet he's tired tonight! I'm sure it will get easier. Twinnies are as cute as ever. How are you finding the parking at KCF?
Waiting & Lisa - Great catching up today. I can't believe how much C has grown, those smiles, gorgeous! Waiting, S & A must have a playdate while you're on holidays, I haven't seen A for ages.
Rach - Hope the scan, confirms the Dr's thoughts and your Dad is on the road to recovery in no time. Are you and E feeling better?
Livvy - My ms came and went and to be honest the days I didn't I felt worse. Got to love 2am ms! Babies quite often measure a few days either side of dates, sometimes the scan is done just before bubs has a growth spurt IYKWIM. Heartrates sound fine to me. Try not to worry too much, I know, easier said than done. And don't stress about personals, we'd rather hear how you are doing than not at all.
Maybe - I bet you had a great time telling everyone your fantastic news.
MG - How's poor S? I remember 1 winter P & J were sick 6 mths straight! They had chicken pox, colds, more colds and even full blown flu! Not a fun winter. ps. they never went to CC. Are you off the pred yet? I hope so, damn necessary, crappy drug!
Winzy - Are you and your menfolk home yet? Hope you're getting some sleep.
Country - Happy birthday for yesterday.
Well it's my bedtime. Sam has his 1st day at occ care tomorrow, he goes ok.

Hi all, thanks for the warm welcome. We have been telling everyone our news and it is so good to finally be able to shout it from the rooftops.
12 week scan went really well and risk of downs is very low so we are really hoping that everything is smooth sailing from here.
Kiwi - hope Sam's first day at occ. care goes well. I'm sure he will have a ball :-)
Livvy - I have been following your journey and so pleased that you are finally here and with twinnies!
Digby - it is not surprising that you feel down and a bit blue. You have been through a very traumatic time. Take time to grieve and hopefully with Zahli on the mend and more and more cuddles this will help the process.
Afm - had very little sickness or any symptoms but very tired but hoping that will pass soon.

Digby - like everyone has said, you have been through so much, and that didn't just start when your labour started, but when you were ttc.
It will take time to process everything. Hope you are doing well, and I hope you get some counseling. Xx
Kiwi - I'm off pred thank god! It bloated me so badly, I looked 4 months pregnant while only 8 weeks. I was seriously worrying what I was going to look like at 9 months!!
