I've been offline for a while - but still reading everyone's updates.
Gemini - cute bubba pics!! Love the names you've thought about too. Shame about the glucose test - good luck!
Bebehvala - super jealous of your babymoon - sounds fantastic!!
AFM - well I had an OB appt yesterday and saw bubs. I new exactly where his head and feet were before the ultrasound was turned on and I was right - so cute. He's breach at the moment, but I have told him that's fine - but he needs to move around by 34 week!! We had to buy a new car because my car didn't fit the new pram. How crazy is that! We ended up getting a Mazda 3 and it's a good size. I ordered my pram from Amazon and it should arrive in a couple of weeks. I saved $400 doing it that way. We get so ripped off in Australia.
I'm counting down the weeks till I finish up work. Only seven weeks to go yay. I love having Wednesday's off. Last week I had an hour pregnancy massage. Yesterday I went to lunch with a couple of girlfriends. Total bliss - step-kids at school and husband at work.
Anyway - hope you are all going well and enjoying your pregnancy.

I hear you about the finishing up at work thing! God I have even got an app on my Iphone which counts down the days, hours, mins and secs until 5pm on 27th July! I hate my job that much!
I will feel so free when I leave. Give me screaming babies with crap filled nappies any day over my job!

Whoa Claire, only 7 weeks to go. I'm so jealous.
Had the 2 hour glucose test this morning. So gross, never felt so nauseous before. Should get the results tomorrow.

Hey ladies I hope you are all going well we are all coming close to the end now it's very exciting/scary.
Gemini I hope your results from the glucose test are good.
Well I have just under 13 weeks to go and I think the pace is starting to pick up now. I feel like I have so much to get done and not a lot of time.
How is everyone going with names for bub? We are still undecided for our little man but have a few favorites.
Can I ask does anyone have like a sling to carry Bubs in? If so what kind?

Hi HamptonK- yes I have bough a baby sling- I got the mini monkey. I liked the look of it and the fact u can use it at a few life stages. Looks very comfy too.. Id love it if I were a baby lol.
We are still undecided on baby names . We also have a few we like, my top 3 are Elijah, Wyatt and Jesse. Hubby likes Elijah but not keen on the other 2. We were also tossing around Joel, Zane and Malachi. Poor bubs might not have a name at birth coz I don know if hubby and I will ever agree :-/
Sorry I think it was Gemini but I could be wrong- hope your GT comes back all good and that you don't have to go through another one. I guess I will have mine very soon too. I'm
Now 25 weeks
So excited about my baby being here within the next 15 weeks!! Hopefully he stays put at least another 11 weeks.

klong - that's hilarious - please tell me the app and I'll put it on my phone. I don't hate my job, but it's been hard getting up on the dark, cold mornings and then I get home at 5pm and looking after two kids, washing, cleaning, cooking, mothering etc. whew - tired!! Glad you're getting out of there considering how unhappy it makes you - awesome.
Gemini85 - you mustn't have long to go at work? You're due in 10 weeks!! Did you get results?
HamptonK - We have decided on a name for our son, but keeping quiet about it - we've decided that bubs will be the first to hear his own name - my husband will tell him when he's born. So special! Hard decision though. I recently bought the Peanut Shell online http://www.babesinarms.com.au/peanut-shell. It's gorgeous and functional. Very popular in America. I'm looking forward to wearing baby and having him close to me as much as possible and I think the sling really accomodates that safely.
Baby woke me up at 4am again, I think he's practacing his Haka moves (husband is Maori). Sooo active!
Have a great weekend ladies

Yep, can definitely feel it getting closer and closer now!!! Oh, and a big "YAY" for the second-most-important-countdown in all of this......the "stop work" countdown!! I've got 9 weeks left, so pretty excited about that...but even more jealous of you, Claire for only having 7 weeks left....
Bubs has been moving a lot more frequently and stronger now....sometimes I can see the movement from the outside. It's awesome when it gets to that bit, I think!!!
I need to look at booking my GT test next week.....I hate the damn things. I've had a few now - I had to do the big long ones as part of my fertility investigations, and every time they hand me that little bottle I get a shiver down my spine. Oh welll, all for a good cause, I suppose... Gemini I hope yours comes back ok!!!
As for names, we are probably closer on boys names than girls names....for boy the frontrunners are Patrick, Ryan or Fraser. For girls, we are tossing up between Hannah, Annabel, Paige, Avery, Emily, Molly, Emma, Lily and Laura. All fairly plain and simple, I suppose....l
HamptonK & Claire I did'n't use a sling the first time around, and I've thought about it this time... I suppose I'm a bit worried about all those safety warnings about using slings....do you think there's anything to them, or is it just hype?? I don't really know!!
Anyway, that's about it from me....all pretty boring (but a boring pregnancy is a good pregnancy, right???!?!??!)
Cheers to all!

Thanks Claire and ange I will take a look at the slings you both got. I was kin of hoping that when I go to the pregnancy and baby expo in June that I will be able to see one that I like but I have no idea what I am even looking for, I just know I don't want a harness one. We will see what happens.
The front running named we have at the moment are Cayden, Cooper, Tyler, Lincoln. Names that are not to too common but not too odd. I think the first two are my favorites.
Just about at the 12 week countdown now. Luckily or me I have not worked since June last year as I quit to do ivf and give it our best chance, so I'm bored as anything but I'll count myself lucky it's all worked out.
I have been given specific instructions not to buy anything else for bub til after baby shower. It's drivin me a little nuts as I feel I have so much to get and don't want to leave it to late. At least I have the big items I guess.
Is anyone else starting to feel extra tired again as you go into the third trimester?
Hope everyone is still doing well and getting the all clear for glucose tests etc

Hi HamptonK- yes I'm feeling tired a bit lately around 3pm. I've also been sleeping rather well, which isn't like me at all.
When are u having your baby shower? I'm thinking of having mine on June 24th so that's 2 months before I'm due. I've asked my sister in the USA to organize mine as she will be here from June 11th for 10 weeks! I told her I would organize most of it, but I will just put her name to it so it looks like she has organized it. Lol. Then she can run it on the day.
Yeah I want a sling that's not a harness too. The one I did get is one that just slips over your shoulder diagonally (like a sac bag) as they are easy to use and convenient. They are safe in my opinion. Keeps your hands free too.

Angenrod I'm having my baby shower on June 23rd so I'll be 32 weeks I think it is. It's the same weekend as the baby expo in Brisbane so I plan to go to it the next day
