Hi Ladies,

Mind if I join in?  Got my bfp yesterday with an IC and tested today with first response and it is a definite positive. Although I have no idea how far along I am due to irregular periods. Have an appointment with the dr on Thursday.

Morning sickness has kicked in already (damn) was hoping this time would be easier. I can't stand for more than 2 minutes without needing to sit down otherwise I will pass out.

Congratulations to all the new arrivals what a fabulous Christmas gift.

Our little princess arrived at 9:58am this morning. We have called her Evelyn Hermione. She was 48cm long, 3.36kg (7pd6oz) and head circumference 36.5cm. Operation went very smoothly, was a great laid back atmosphere and much more pleasant than my emergency c section last time. Evie had some fluid on her lungs, so after a quick cuddle she went up to the nursery with DH. She is currently being weaned off oxygen in her humidicrib and hoping she will be able to come back to the room with me either tonight or tomorrow morning. I was able to take her out and feed her this afternoon, which was awesome! I am recovering well, been up and about since 230.

Afternoon ladies,

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

Saw the dr today and pregnancy is now confirmed. We are only about 5 weeks going by hcg levels. Dating scan is booked in for 17th January, it's going to be a long 2 weeks. Looks like this bub will be due 2 days after DS 2nd birthday. Lucky I'm not allowed to go past 38 weeks or DS could be sharing his birthday.

Congratulations [/b]Shirley Temple[/b] on baby Evelyn, it's such a beautiful name.

  waves.gif to everyone else.
