I also still have nearly half a bottle of white wine in the fridge that I opened the night before my successful transfer, and I can't get rid of that either, even though it would be more than undrinkable now! I'm not usually superstitious, but I feel like it's my good luck charm; i.e. as long as that bottle of wine is still in the fridge, the baby will be okay. Weirdo!
    Yep totally a superstition thing. The open stuff I got rid of but I took a few months.
    I have unopened 8 month chilled wine in the fridge. funny aren't we.

    It's totally nuts, lol. I also have two pairs of yellow booties under my pillow that were sent to me just before my last cycle by two pregnant ladies from another forum (old wives tale: pregnant lady rubs yellow booties on her belly, then passes them on to someone who is TTC, who puts them under their pillow until they become pregnant too). Anyway, by now I should be rubbing them on my belly and passing them onto someone else, but I just can't part with them, and I even take them away with me on holidays/overnight stays in hotels/etc so that I never have a night without them under my pillow. Another good luck charm. I've never been like this before in my life, so I feel ridiculous!

    I have never heard of this, but I love it ...no harm in keeping them under your pillow I say! ...I bought red bedside lamps when we were in the midst of IVF, because I read that according to Chinese medicine that is good for fertility

    OMG my sweet little princess continues to grow to be a ba-bumpa-bub.... complete chubba bubba.
    My 8am appointment finished 7 hours later today!
    My bp was checked twice and was high. My fundal had grown 6cm in 2weeks and bad odema (ankles to knee is severe, where you can push your finger in make a hole thst does not bounce back), so I was sent around the hospital all day. Pathology for bloods and further urine, an ultrasound where bub has had huge growth spurt in size in last 2weeks and am told today at 34weeks she's 3.1kilos or 6+pound, again with large abdomen. Then off to the assessment unit for ctg monitoring and bp testing.
    I am now having a further 36week ultrasound in 2 weeks to check baby's growth and told I may be induced early due to bp and size.

    So im currently
    Scared baby will be huge if I can get through a few more weeks ( &all this time ive prayed for her to stay put)
    Crazily now happy for her to come early ..as how will I ever deliver a 9pound baby full term.(they said thats now what shes ontrack for)
    And really bless and lucky as for most people post haemorrhage then find the placenta doesn't continue to keep babys growth rate up. Mine is feeding her exceptionally well!

    anything else this pregnancy wants to throw at me

    Hope all our working I girls had a speedy Friday. Enjoy your well deserved weekend. Everyone else have a relaxing weekend too.

    That's what we've bought, MusicalGal. The only bad thing I can see is that the basket underneath is REALLY small (and it's recommended that you don't hang things from the handle since it tips), so I'm wondering how I'll carry groceries. But honestly only this one and the Phil and Teds Dot fit in our tiny car (Hyundai i20) and I loved the ease of folding this one. Can't wait to use it

    Sunshinebell, it's great to hear your bub is so healthy. Better that than an unhealthy growing bub. You might see your little miss sooner than you think

    Wow 7 hours sunshine you must have been tried. So when will they be thinkin of inducing if u do have to? It 4 weeks till Chrissy will it be after or before. Wow can't believe it u must be over it I bet.

    I'm not having a baby shower as I have a thing about asking for presents. I don't mind going to them, in fact I love them, but just hate the thought of playing games & have everyone watch me as I open gifts. If people want they'll but one when they see us. Weird I know

    I ended up buying the emmaljunga pram. Bit of a rush buy but it was on sale but I have been given a couple second hand ones so I guess we'll chop & change as required. I have been the icandy peach they r gorgeous.
