Ann so many things can go wrong. It just makes you appreciate how precious life really is.
Thanks everyone for the advice about the pjs and nighties. Looks like I'll be heading to BigW during the week. Interestingly when I was in Target this morning I couldn't see any maternity sleepware. You'd think they would stock them?
This is getting exciting now. Can't believe we are at this point!!

Jay- I know what you mean, I've heard so many sad stories lately too. In just this past week, a lady on the June fb DIG that Riss and I are on went to her 20wk scan to find the baby had no kidneys so she had to be induced this week as the baby wouldn't make it. On the same day, we found out that one of the ladies on the Ivf cycle thread that a few of us here are on went to her 12wk scan to find her baby hadn't made it (this was after having a bfn when she was cycling with us and then got a natural miracle late last yr). So incredibly sad and cruel but makes me appreciate what I have so far.
Arlsis- I don't think you are being too paranoid with what you've been through with the cramping. I did a similar google search the other day just to see...I'm 9 days away from the 24wk mark! Congrats on officially finishing work too, you'll have to let us know what we have to look forward to.
Panda- luckily enough my mum came across a 50% off sale on ginger lily pjs and got me two winter nighties and a dressing gown, they aren't maternity but she just got me a bigger size. They have buttons on the front so she thought they'd be perfect for the hospital and when up feeding on cold nights (also good enough that if I have unexpected visitors pop in and I'm still in my pjs). Got to love it when mums come up with these great ideas or find bargains!
Bedlover- thanks for your tip about getting out of the house regularly. I can really imagine the days just blending into one, especially the cold, grey days we'll probably have after bub is born so will need to get out and about. I have already made plans for what I want to get done in the time I have off work before the baby arrives so will just have to keep going once she has been born.

PS ladies don't forget to pack socks and or slippers for hospital (a throw away pair for if your feet are cold during labour but others for the cold hospital floor after bub is here.

That is just so sad. My heart breaks for these women and their families. Losing a baby at such a late stage is just awful as many of us on here are all too familiar with. Brings back some terrible feelings and makes me feel so lucky we have got to this point with this pregnancy - still not out of the woods yet but I am determined to think positive xx

Sorry it has brought up some bad memories I raised it on this forum not the other as I think we IVFs see pregnancy differently to those whom have conceived natural and for me it was more a reminder of how lucky we are to be where we are at this point.
Anyway my gorgeous Hubby suggested I make my friend who's lost the twin a card -as we know she likes cards - so I've been working on it today so here's what I have so far:

Unfortunately I think the hardest part for her is about to come when her sister gives birth to her naturally conceived twins in about a months time. Just wish we lived closer so I can give her a big hug.

KJ my OB recommend gaviscon or zantac. But I don't need it every day. Actually it's been heaps better lately.

Jay this is absolutely the right place to raise it. It just makes me sad that us IVF'ers are all too familiar with what can and does go wrong in pregnancy.
I know many people who decide to have a baby, have sex, fall pregnant, have a healthy baby without a thought of bad stuff ever entering their heads!
We on the other hand are so exposed to the process, the ups and downs and then all the other stuff that can go wrong once you actually conceive. I don't wish any different on these people, just wish that we all had the luxury of that same experience!
We are here now though and that is what counts xxx

I'm finding hard to understand how differently some people react to someone's pregnancy eg someone who is young falling pregnant without conceptions compared to a bit older like me @ 37 and conceived through IVF.
My sister is one of those .... when my Neice (her daughter) fell pregnant at 19 my sister who's a nurse & also had no probs falling when she was younger told me that my Neice didn't need all the advice I was giving on pregnancy safe foods and things to avoid as it would just stress my Neice out about doing the 'right thing' and that she (my sister) had no problems with any of her kids and ate what she wanted.
But with me even when I told her at 13wks I was pregnant & all tests and scans had come back fine .. Responded with 'well its early days yet' & then proceeded to tell me about her friends who have lost at 27weeks and others would lost at blah blah! ... and when I mention something about pregnancy, how my hospital does things or what I've learnt that I've found interesting ... she dismisses what I've said by saying 'I know you do a lot of reading on these things but ....' It's really annoying. I got so frustrated last time I asked her why do you think it's something I've read automatically that's got no foundation to it ... as it was actually a "nurse / midwife" with 10yrs midwifery experience and four kids of her own that told us that at our antenatal class! ... So she changed the subject. Haha
It feels like a slap in the face kind of like before I was pregnant when people used to say 'well it's obvious you don't have kids' or 'yeah wait until you have kids of your own'. The one I get a lot now it when they ask how have I been and seem surprised when I say good and they tell me 'just wait till near the end then you'll be wanting that baby out!'. Can't they just say 'wow that's great, I hope you get a smooth ride all the way or something like that why the negative spin all the time?
