It's so good to hear from you @Billie2! We have missed you!
For my FET, I had both BTs and scans. On CD10 only a BT and BT and scan On CD15 (I reckon it should have been CD14 but it was a long weekend so they rang me to a day late). I think the scan was to check for ovulation and lining thickness. Then they arranged for FET 5 days after (so it was CD20 for me).
I'm so crossing my fingers and toes and sending you all the baby dust in this universe! Hope this cycle is THE one! Are you doing a double transfer? You had 2 frosties right?

What a dilemma @onedaymaybebaby! This hospital that just called you, are they a lot easier to get to and convenient for you? Any chance that you could do a visit first before you decide? I'm a sucker for familiarity so if I had built up a good relationship with the dr and midwives in my hospital, it will take a lot for me to change my mind and move!
Yay to GTT being done @ABG79! I didn't have any reactions as well, but bub was on a sugar high and was kicking me non stop for the whole morning. Sounds like all will be fine for you too! Thanks for the tip on the belt. For me, it's also about the pelvic stretch and pain. I am finding myself holding my tummy up sometimes especially at the end of a work day. Still wondering about it. Hah. DH thinks I should do yoga instead but with work and studies being quite intense now, it's tough to do that!
I'm so excited for you @MissTilly! The waiting game! we are all standing by to cheer you and bub on! Do enjoy the pampering! You so deserve it! Keep us updated, this is like watching the best TV show ever with the climax arriving soon. Lol.
Anyway, afm, nothing much to report except my boy has been having lots of hiccups. Like at least 3-4 times a day. It was cute at first but now it's disconcerting. Haha. My OB didn't seem concerned at all when I told him and asked about it. He just laughed and said "it's a funny sensation isn't it?" Half the time it happens through the night when I'm sleeping so I wake up with tummy twitches. Sounds like I've got a really greedy bub who's trying to gobble down fluid all the time. Anyone else the same?

@VickyP tell me about it I really don't know what to do! The hosp that called me yesterday could potentially be far more convenient....less hassle to get to as it's going away from the city, no risk if potential stand still traffic jams like the one I'm currently with, so that's a BIG plus! I'm going to call them back on Monday and ask if it's possible to have an appointment and go check them out before deciding. I haven't built a rapport up as such with my current hospital, I'm just another number in the system, but I can't fault their professionalism and care. Everyone has been so friendly so far...hmmm watch this space.
Yep lots of hiccups here too, nothing to worry about, just all part of the middle of the night fun

Sounds like a plan @onedaymaybebaby! It does sound like there's a huge incentive for you to move - I can understand about the traffic. My hospital is only 6km from me but it takes forever to get there! It's the nearest private hospital to me so I don't have too much choice cos the public hospital round the corner has pretty bad reviews about antenatal and birth care. Oops! My OB's clinic in the private hospital has been awesome though, they have tried to fit me in for early mornings so DH can take me before work. Let us know how it all goes!
Bubs making me practice "how to survive with little sleep through the night" for sure. 2nd trimester beauty sleep, come back!!!!!

That's my problem with our closest public hospital (12km away), I've just heard too many bad things. I know every hospital will are the good and the bad but I had just heard too many bad! So our current hospital is 27km away and 30 min in good traffic...but in peak traffic I'd hate to think how long it would take! The one we are possibly going to transfer to is 39km away but 30min anytime day or night, super easy driving and you can see it from the freeway! One roundabout and you're there, and have heard so many happy stories through them! It's also closer to family which will be easier for them to visit.
That's so frustrating knowing you're only 6km away from you but takes ages to get there...traffic can be so frustrating!! That's awesome your OB has been so accommodating to you and your DH! Makes things just that little bit less stressful!
08-10-2016 20:24 #656
Wow @onedaymaybebaby, that's far! And I thought 6.8km was far already. In peak traffic, it takes me at least 30 mins to drive there! That's sydney for you! The public hospital is 5 mins away but I might as well make use of my PHI. Sounds like you should check the hospital out, being assured of getting there in 30 mins under any condition is a great incentive to switch I say! 🏻
@OneOfTheseDays, how are you hun? Been thinking of you and your bubs!

Hi ladies, thanks for thinking of me and apologies I've been quiet. The truth is, things aren't great and I really don't want to bring you all down.
We had our scan last week and confirmed that we do indeed have a baby girl and and a baby boy on board, and whilst our daughter looks healthy and well, there are major concerns with our son. Not only was a heart defect confirmed (Tetralogy of Fallots), his head is also measuring small and his long bones are measuring short - all signs that he most likely does have a serious chromosomal abnormality. We have been referred to a tertiary hospital now and will need more tests and to see specialists. Whilst I want to hold onto hope that it may not be all that bad, the doctors have given us little hope to hold onto. We have had to have conversations about 'selective termination' of our son or the possibility of choosing not to resuscitate at birth should he be in a bad way. Of course, we just want to bring home 2 healthy babies, but it looks like our journey is not that simple. We will most likely have an amnio after 34 weeks so we know what his condition is and what to prepare for - we are too scared to have one now in case we lose our girl as well. I'm 21 weeks and 2 days today and I really don't know how to 'do' this anymore
So, there it is. Again, I'm sorry to bring the mood down. I am so truly happy for all of you and it warms my heart reading your posts, but please forgive me if I'm a bit quiet until I get my head around all of this. Sending lots of love to you and your bubbas. xxxx

On the flip side, we certainly don't expect you to if you're not up to it, take the time you need. You/your DF and your precious babies are the most important people to look after right now ❤️ This is such a blow for you. I'm so sorry you're still faced with the unknown somewhat. You are so brave and I admire you. Whatever decision you come to will be right for you and your DF - don't worry about anyone else! I hope the specialists at tertiary hospital are able to give you some more guidance. Again, we are here for you! Sending you the biggest hugs lovely lady

Sending you the biggest hugs @OneOfTheseDays. I wouldn't know what to think or do as well if I were in your shoes. Please don't be sorry - if anything, please know that we are here for you all the time. Sorry if my tags made you feel compelled to update us - please just do what you feel most comfortable with and just know that we are your little BH family and will always be here to cheer you on.
I can only imagine how devastating the news must have been but you are a strong mumma and I know you will make the best decision possible for you and your family. It must be overwhelming at the moment, with lots of information to digest, lots of research and eventually decisions, but hang in there, of course you can do it because it's you we are talking about. I personally think doctors tend to sound "pessimistic" in a way because it's their job to lay all the cards on the table and I guess most doctors prefer a "prepare for the worst but hope for the best" approach. I know things may not sound hopeful at the moment, but these are little miracle bubs we are talking about, so who knows what can happen in the next few months? These miracles will never stop happening.
I had a quick google read about TOF and it seems like medical intervention is available after birth, so don't stop hoping. And I know for a fact that you have 2 little warriors in there because mumma's a super warrior mum too, so they have definitely inherited that trait from you.
Please don't worry about bringing down the mood on here - we are here for each other, for better or worse and there's no such thing as "only share happy news on this thread". When you need a listening ear and when you feel ready to share any news or updates, just hop by. Take care of yourself hun - sending you lots of love and prayers.
