Tommi - I'm pretty sure one of the reviews I read of the cameleon said they took their light coloured cover off and washed it and it came up as good as new . I think you can justify the price if you hope to have more kids, or even if you don't but you walk a lot... When I had DD I walked every day for about 2 hours for her first year, then we moved to a small town and I used the pram instead of the car, so if I was going to repeat that, I'd definitely be able to justify a more expensive pram. But, as it is, I have a 4 year old who's not big on walking much (but is too big for me to bother getting a double stroller), and we now live in the hills which makes walking most places far too difficult, so I'm unsure how much I'll use a pram. ...even so, looks like I'll not get away with much less than $800... I plan on getting a couple of slings (so far the hugabub wrap and the hugabub sling are my front runners)... I figure they'll be handy for the school drop-off/pick-up, and for doing the grocery shop etc...
sunshinebell - you've done REALLY well We are off on holidays until the 24th... I'll PM you after that and we can arrange to catch up.
man...all this shopping chat, all I want to do is jump in the car and go down to baby bunting now!

I know me too I'm moving into a new house and the baby's room is empty I'm waiting for the 12 week mark to come around so I can go buy everything and set it up 1 week to go!!!! So exciting! I'm getting the bugaboo buffalo the brand new one that's out I was tossing up between the donkey because its double if we have kids close together but it's big and won't go alot of places. So we have decided on the buffalo and see what happens

Hi ladies I'm jumping in - I'm only about 5 weeks today so fingers crossed it's a sticky bean and I'll be able to stay
I should be due at the beginning of April, but since IVF bubs do tend to come a bit early I have a feeling this little one will be arriving late March!
Had my beta and got a BFP on the 1st of August (HCG 187), so still trying to wrap my head around actually being pregnant. This was our very first IVF/ICSI cycle (male factor) so I feel completely blessed that we've had such a good result first time around
During the initial testing in my assessment cycle I found out that I have antinuclear antibodies so I had to start on prednisone before EPU to supress my immune system from attacking the embryo. After transfer I also had to start taking baby aspirin (to help implantation) and now I'm also having daily clexane injections to prevent the developing placenta from clotting. Luckily my progesterone levels have been fine throughout the cycle so I don't need any additional at this point in time.
I'm really glad that I'm under the care of a FS that tested everything beforehand as I've been reading stories of ladies who have had multiple miscarriages due to being +ANA and only finding out then that they needed some support to stop their immune system from seeing the embryo as something to get rid of
I have a BT on Thursday to check all my levels (weekly now) and I'm going crazy waiting for my first scan on the 27th!
So that's me, now I'm going to read back through the thread and get to know everyone

That's why I love BH! Knowing that everyone else is in the same boat and doing the same things I am. I thought I was been way too premature looking at baby furniture etc. I'm not planning to buy it yet as I'm only 10 weeks but its just exciting to start planning.
Welcome Arlais congrats on your BFP! Hope all goes well with your BT on Thursday xx

Welcome to the ivf bfp club alaris! It's an amazing feeling isn't it.... to have come this far. I still have to pinch myself after every successful scan. After 2 m/c I just can't believe that everything is actually going smoothly this time, and I'm 40! So darn excited and proud . I'd better go and touch some wood now. ....
So exciting to read all the shopping tips. I won't jinx myself til 12wks, but it's good to get all these tips n names of items so I can start looking in 2wks. I'm gonna have a little list to the side for the baby shower. People always want to know what they can get you as a gift, so everyone chipping in for an expensive item works well for everyone, like a rocker or sling.
Have fun everyone!
