"As the leading provider of breast pumps globally we do not believe that there is an issue with open system pumps. With the Swing breast pump, the motor can be flushed out regularly if required or if any milk enters the motor. The water is sucked up the tubing so it cleans the tubing as well."
I also found that it has won multiple awards including the Medical Design Excellence Awards.
Reviews of both products are great.
Will need to think about it a little more and maybe ask a midwife or contact breast feeding AUS.

Can't believe I'm nearly at 30 weeks. It's been a dream to make it this far. Still cannot quite believe this is happening. I continue to worry about stillbirth. I wish we knew more about the reasons. I'm not so much worried about early delivery now cos they can work miracles at 27wks. But of course I still can't help thinking of the things that can still go wrong. I guess this never changes for any mum, let alone an Ivf'er. Next will be the worries of Sids. Never ending! ! Sorry. .. don't mean to bring a dampener to the thread, but I'm sure we're all having the same fears.
Walking 30 mins daily, aqua aerobics and prenatal yoga once a week.
Sorry I've been "absent" everyone. I'm still reading along, but just haven't felt like posting lately. Everything's still fine with me I think.. last antenatal class tonight, and my next ob appt on Thursday arvo. After that I'll be on fortnightly appointments!

SunshineBell - Good to hear you are being closely monitored. Not long to go now.
Hoots - don't worry. I have been wearing liners the whole pregnancy because of little sneeze leaks.
I got a "Snow Bear" electric breast pump from ebay. It came from Singapore and has Chinese writing on it. I hope it does the job.
On Sunday night I woke up with a bout of diarrhoea and vomiting, and felt dreadful most of yesterday. It felt like I had that achy feeling in your limbs that you get before getting the flu. Stayed at home and tried to sleep. Feel much better today. But earlier this morning after eating a chicken soup threw up again. Didn't make it to the toilet bowl and had to clean it up. I feel well enough to work at the computer but will stay at home today. Because of this my GTT has been postponed until Thursday. Baby is still moving as normal.
I am getting more neurotic about still birth in these final stages. This happened to a friend of mine so have been affected by this experience. Since my last doctors appointment I have been getting more worried and am checking the heartbeat and looking out for movements all the time. Thinking now I would ike to see Baby out sooner rather than later.
If they want to induce 10 days before my due date (21 Jan), I suppose they would start the process around 10-11 Jan and the birth date would be soon after that. However, I will still do acupuncture in the lead up to it, to try to prepare the body. Maybe l'll go into labour before 10 Jan and still avoid the induction.
best wishes to all

Hoots I was thinking of asking the group a similar question. So we're all normal...I just hope it doesn't continue for too long past the birth!
Gilliebean not much computer luck! Have you thought of writing your posts in a Google doc first? They're almost impossible to accidentally lose the text from. I've lost posts too - so frustrating!
My ticker says I should start planning a baby shower...hmmm. How to do that without making extra work for myself?

littlesunflowers - you can order all the decorations online. Hopefully you have family to make food and woolies/coles do platters. Just organise drinks and ask a friend/s to look after the games/prizes.

Im 35 + 5 weeks. Wondering if it's getting harder for you ladies to walk? The sides above my pubic bone get so sore even when I need to get up during the night. Feels like my legs will detach from my body if I continued to walk or I have done inner thigh presses everyday for the first time. Notice it's getting more painful. Are you ladies experiencing the same thing?

Hi ladies, so glad you had a discussion about breast pumps as I was set on getting the Avent. I didn't even really know there was other brands until I started saw all your posts and started googling and found out so much info! I rally like the sound of the Spectra S2, but what I'm wondering is when am I likely to use it? I don't want to waste all that money If I may not use it? Also, has anyone already used this brand or one similar and used a different brand of bottles such as the Avent? The Avent bottles still seem to be better......
Hope you all have a lovely Wednesday! 1 more week till Christmas x
