Hi all

New thread time

Previous thread

Just FYI now your FB group has been started please follow these rules regarding mention here.  I do not want each thread to be about FB, they are two different areas.

From DIG Info and Guidelines
QUOTE
Facebook With the popularity of FB some groups decide to have a group on there as well. The rules on this are that the group needs to stay separate from this one (ie no personal issues arising on FB (if any) are to be bought onto EB and members are free to post in one or both groups. A group link can be added to the 'list' that most groups have with a person to contact (via email/PM) for access to keep threads here from becoming clogged with FB requests etc.

GOLD!

Hope everyone is doing well today. I'm off to the doctors later. Think it's going to be a waste of time as the receptionist called and said he wanted to see me but I can't see why. I'm going to ask him for a referral for more bloods I think.

DS got up super early for us so hopefully he'll sleep before the doctors and doesn't go feral.

Bronze !! Woo

Sunnycat - Good luck with the Dr appt!

Mel _W - Swimming, wow. You're much more motivated than me. Haha.

I'm off to the Dr's as well today. Getting my 3rd blood results so hoping they have doubled (and a bit more). Have to wait till the arvo to find out. Boo

Hi ladiesSo I've been bleeding a bit since yesterday arvo. I'm really worried but trying hard not to stress. Tried to get a dr appt but the only female available is a nasty one so don't want to see her, saw he early in my first pregnancy and she said to me something like 'its very early you could lose it' and made me all paranoid and cry so really don't want to take this issue to her, instead I'm just lying here feeling awful unsure.gif

Posted 06 November 2012 - 12:23 PM

Jindy, I hope all is ok.  Is there any reason you will only see a female doctor?  I think you'll find all they'll do is refer you for blood test or scan.

Sunnycat, let us know why the doctor wanted to see you!

Rach, good luck with your results.  I wanna know mine!!!

Jindy, I hope everything is okay, let us know how you go.

My DS had a 30 minute nap. It took an hour and a half of walking to convince him to sleep. I really wanted him to have a decent nap before the doctors but now he's going to be feral. sad.gif

Peanut Brown, try this:

Go to "My Controls" (under their username on the left of the screen)

Under the Menu (second column on the left) look for the Options subheading and click on Board Settings.

In the Control Panel, look for this bit ...

"Type of text editor to use when posting"

If it is set to Rich Text Editor, change it to Standard Editor (or vice versa).

Once these changes are made you will be able to send your PMs.


AFM I am home from the doctor, had more blood tests and he gave me another referral for a scan in case I want two. He also bulk billed me! So kind!

Hi Everyone,

Looks like I have joined in late, already a few threads already tongue.gif

Congratulations everyone on your BFP. My due date is 2 July. This baby is a much needed one and the pregnancy is going to be a roller coaster one for us, as we lost our precious boy Lucas in June at 37 weeks. We have a girl and she is 2.8 year old. Cheeky little one. But wish that Lucas will be here as she will be so good with him. I didn't join any DIG with Lucas as I didn't think I need it with a second one. I regret that I didn't share the joy of being pregnant with him with anyone. So have told myself that I will need to join one when we fall pregnant again. So here I am.

I will have to read back when I have the chance to get to know everyone. Sorry If I am a bit slow as like some of you here, sickness has kicked in and my brain is just not functioning as it should be  laugh.gif

xx
anne

Bubbletreemum welcome and I'm so sorry for the loss of your son Lucas, I hope this pregnancy is a smooth ride for you.

#14 Rolex

Posted 06 November 2012 - 04:32 PM

Anne, gosh I'm so sorry for the loss of Lucas.  What a gorgeous name he has!  If it weren't for my nephew who is a Luke, I'd have used Lucas for one of my boys original.gif

Sunnycat, so why did the doctor request to see you?

I just rang my doctor surgery to see if I could get yesterday's results over the phone - no go.  Have to wait till Friday **sigh**

#15 bluetea

Posted 06 November 2012 - 06:46 PM

Rolex   That is so frustrating. Only a few days until Friday so not long now.

Sunnycat   How was your Dr appt ?

bubbletreemum - Hello and welcome!! I'm sure you will enjoy it in here.
I'm sorry that Lucas couldn't stay with you.

jindy - I hope the bleeding has eased off. Have you managed to get into a Dr yet?

AFM - I got my blood results back today

14DPO - 99
16 DPO - 324
19 DPO - 2200

Pretty happy with those numbers... and I have booked my dating scan for next Friday. Only a week and a half to go....

#16 romeolima

Posted 06 November 2012 - 07:27 PM

Awesome results Rach

Sunny cat what did the doc actually want?

Jindy hope you are ok. Look after yourself

Welcome bubbletreemum sorry for your loss of Lucas. I also love that name but doesn't go with our last name

As for me had a great cup day. Ds let me sleep in this morning YAY till 7 at least think he is starting to get over his teething cold thing he has had. And DH is home woohoo came to tea time and was so nice not to have to think of the simple stuff like getting Ds in his Highchair coz dh had already done it.

Hi to everyone else hope you are all well and not feeling too sick. With everyone talking about doc Im getting excited to see ours come on Friday

#17 Guest_Sunnycat_*

Posted 06 November 2012 - 07:45 PM

Your numbers are awesome Rach!

The doctor just told me I'm about 5 weeks pregnant. I think we've misunderstood each other, he was under the impression that I wasn't sure how far along I am because I'm breast feeding. Oh well, at least the appointment didn't cost anything.

Can't wait for my hcg results tomorrow, I'm hoping they're over 1200.

Romeolima yay for sleep ins!

Hi I'd like to join the due in July thread please, I'm currently 5 1/2 weeks pregnant. I will be having my first scan at 6 1/2 weeks. I've had two recurrent m/c prior to this, so hoping all goes well this time.

#22 Guest_Sunnycat_*

Posted 06 November 2012 - 11:08 PM

Hi my3beautifulboys. Welcome original.gif and congratulations. Sorry for your losses.

Eta welcome genie83 original.gif a few of us have babies who have just turned one so we're all likely to have similar age gaps.

Hey my3beautifulboys, you finally made it here!  Congrats again original.gif

Welcome to genie and foxgirls.  You're not joining late.  There will be plenty of new members of this group to come yet - all the due in late July mums don't know it yet! original.gif

Sunnycat, praying for your numbers to be high today xo

Rach, super awesome numbers there original.gif

Romeolima, yay on the sleep-in!  I'm not sleeping past 5:15 atm. Either DS#3 wakes me, or my bladder does, and then I can't go back to sleep because the sun is up!

Nothing really to report for me.  Been awake over an hour and trying to work past the nausia and onto breakfast ...
