I hope everything went well for you all today, and it was a merry christmas for everyone! I managed to stay away from the cabana and soft cheese, but couldn't resist a little ham. But all round my high-lights were pickles and cherries.. yum  biggrin.gif

Our lunch was super nice, everyone was well behaved  wink.gif We threw some baby names around with the family, FIL was wasted and came up with the most hilarious names! but we didn't come up with any keepers yet  wink.gif

Rolex, (i think it was you who asked in the last thread) i am not in the face book group, i am still in the dark ages and dont have FB  ph34r.gif

Merry Christmas all!  xmas_cool.gif   I hope everyone's had a great day. It sounds like you had a wonderful time today, Foxgirls.

Afm, we stayed home this year for Christmas. It was nice to have a peaceful day (as peaceful as it gets with two boys lol) doing things at our own pace for a change. Though I did miss judge how long my honey glazed ham (I ended up having only a small portion as soon as it was out of the oven and stocked up on veggies instead) was going to take so ended up with a Christmas lunch instead   ddoh.gif

The most amazing thing of the day is that we told MIL that we were expecting as she is taking DS1 for a couple of weeks before his operation. Her first comment was to ask if we'd planned it, then she shocked me by asking how I felt. When I told her I've been ok, just dealing with bad ms for the first time ever, she's said that it might be a girl and started to gush.  blink.gif   I was preparing for the worst and got a Christmas miracle! The biggest thing was that she ended the call by saying goodbye babe. She only calls SIL babe. It was only about 9 in the morning so I'm certain she hadn't been into the booze yet as she'd just finished breakfast before we called. I'm not going to complain though. I just hope she doesn't change her mind, whatever has gotten into her, it's a nice change from her usual hard lined way of talking to me.

Hi Rolex! Yep, sure did original.gif

Hi mummies!!

I did wonder how much longer the last thread would get, LOL!

Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas day and got to relax. Ours was pretty chilled. I was a little busy with food prep, but not stupidly frantic like I often allow it to be on that day. My sister who is 34 weeks brought a stack of food and I felt guilty that she'd gone to so much trouble, so good of her. We had a lovely day in spite of the foul Sydney weather, and yesterday was spent in glorious idleness, doing nothing but planning a holiday on the couch original.gif

Lcasey, I am so relieved for you that MIL was actually nice about your news. And on the booze, hilarious! Can totally relate to how you'd feel on that one (although not with my MIL), LOL! People really do surprise you at times like this. I've both over and underestimated some people.

Onto the exciting stuff - the NT screening was done this morning, and according to the bloods and US I'm as low risk as I can possibly be for my age, woohoo! We got to see our little gymnast bouncing around, and it even stopped long enough to pose for a couple of pics, LOL! Very exciting, and I was almost a little teary rolleyes.gif . So we've basically told the rest of the world (about 6 or 7 people who didn't already know, ha ha) the news. As it's our first, there is a little bit of excitement afoot now.

I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of your experiences with the official ultrasounds if you are having them. Have a lovely day everyone!

xx

hey trainingwheels, have added you original.gif  Great news from your scan.  It is so lovely seeing them bouncing around isn't it?  I had my NT on Monday and GP appt today where I got to hear my baby's heartbeat original.gif  Best sound in the world!

Morning Ladies,

I been reading but nothing interesting to say apart from ms hit again on Christmas day of all days. And when I went deep sea fishing with DP it hit (i dont get normally get sick) and the only thing we had to show for our fishing was a black marlin DP caught but had to let it go. It was the first time I have been out deep sea since I found out i was pg so I loved it(big on fishing especially since DP is a keen fisherman) lol

Hope everyone had a wonderful xmas mine was hectic going to various places for lunch and dinner and trying to be merry with ms and only having 3 hours sleep.

Glad everyone that has NT scans have had good results and seen their bubs bouncing around. I'm not having the NT scan done but am having another u/s done sometime in the first week of the new year as the hospital want one that is closer to 12 weeks for booking in so I will still get to see bub again biggrin.gif
We told our kids on xmas day about the baby and the girls were so happy but DS on the other hand wasnt too impressed and i wasnt impressed on what came out of his mouth   rant.gif (teenagers i tell ya)

I better go as DD2 is awake and I need a coffee have a great day all original.gif

Posted 29 December 2012 - 10:11 AM

blueynat, I hope your teenager comes around!  I'm so relieved that my kids were all excited.  My 9yo surprised me, I didn't expect much of a response from him, but he was talking about it more than anybody original.gif

Cruising along well here.  Just need that trimester two energy kick to start **yawn**  Still very tired.  Back to work on Tuesday after almost 3 weeks off Bleh!!

#11 Lcasey

Posted 29 December 2012 - 11:06 AM

Trainingwheels - That was nice of your sister. I'm glad you had a nice day.  MIL's not usually greatly into alchohol (too much into controlling everyone rolleyes.gif ), but Christmas is a special occasion original.gif lol. Re: NT - Yay! For great results! So glad you've been told you're low risk.

Blueynat - what a day for ms, I hope you still had a relatively good day though. Yay for seeing bubs again soon biggrin.gif I'm sorry your son didn't react well. I hope he just needs a bit of time to digest.

Rolex - that's great that your 9yo was so happy about your news it's great when they get onboard like that. I know how you feel with the fatigue. I'm almost down to having a nap with DS2 most days.

Afm, nothing much really. DS1 left with DH yesterday to go visit his Nana. So it's just DS2 and I until Monday evening when DH comes back alone. Miss them already.

I had a fall yesterday, tripped over the clothes airer that DH got down so I wouldn't have to stretch for the clothes line while he's away (one of those blasted wall mounted ones that's just a bit too high for me to reach without stretching on tippy toes) and promptly left in the walkway. mad.gif I hit my side on the couch on the way down, so a bit sore today. But I think bug is ok. Just on the look out for anything contrary. (Mini vent over.)

Other than that, I think DS2 is loving the break from DS1 already. I'm just hanging out for Thursday when I can get bug checked out a little and get my app for my NT scan. Already have my app for round 1 of the glucose test in about 2 weeks. Hope I go ok. Hopefully ms fades out soon. I'm not stomaching overly sweet things atm...

Any whose, I hope your weekends are going well. Congrats to all who've had scans/test. Good luck for all those telling soon, or with those who have not reacted we'll.

Xoxo

LCasey,  I hope you're feeling ok after your fall?

Wow it's quiet in here.  I know our other *ahem* chat forum, is very busy.  Seems strange that this one has screeched to a halt though!

All is well here, definitely feeling more movement over the last couple of days which is amazing hheart.gif and we bought our new car last night, woohoo.  8 seats so 2 spare for friends biggrin.gif

#13 Lcasey

Posted 03 January 2013 - 07:34 PM

Hi Rolex it does look like things have ground to a halt here, doesn't it. (I've sent you a pm, by the way). That's great that you're feeling lots of movements, it's such a special part of pregnancy when bubs starts making themselves known. Yay for the new car! You must be super pleased for the extra room.

I'm feeling ok now, had a couple of days of crampy pains, but everything has calmed down now. I went to antenatal this morning, Everything is well with bug (Thank god) in fact, bug was having a super active period so the midwife couldn't find the heartbeat and so ended up calling for a senior nurse to bring in the portable US machine and turning me in to a training subject for the MW to learn how to do a US. Though I didn't mind, the MW was an absolute gem, had us laughing and enjoying the appointment. It was definitely one of the more interesting appointments I've ever had. biggrin.gif I've now just got to wait until the 14th for my NT scan (YAY   grin.gif )

#14 blueynat

Posted 04 January 2013 - 06:33 AM

Morning ladies,

I'm still around but not a lot to say except I'm ready to dong DP over the head with a baseball bat :/
Plus nervous as anything waiting for Monday morning so I can have this u/s and see if all is ok. Still get bad feelings something isnt right. Maybe when I start to feel bubs move i might ease up a bit but til then still not confident all is ok.

Hope everyone had a wonderful New Year mine was quiet.

Will come back soon when I can think of something to say as kids are singing 3 different songs and all I end up typing is the words to the blasted songs lol

Have a great day all

Im still here too, just been pretty busy with my 2 girls home on holidays.
Not much going on pregnancy wise, at times i feel like death warmed up and other times i forget im pregnant at all. Going to get me results for NT next week.. but thats about it.

blueynat, i bet your really counting down for monday now original.gif

lcasey, i get pretty crampy at times and it always freaks me out.

rolex, what car did you get? we picked up our new car (prado) on tuesday. It's awesome, def wont have trouble fitting us all in and taking the friends too is nice  original.gif It gives us a bit more room than our Barina lol. However i was amazed to see a mum packing 3 kids in seats into her kia rio at xmas!! so it is possible i suppose!

Foxgirls, we decided on a Grand Carnival.  I didn't want 4wd, and we were looking at all the 7 seat SUVs, but they were just too small.  Love the space in the GC, for the kids, and in the boot original.gif

LOL thanks bettinae from next door biggrin.gif  Good to hear!  I had an 05 Carnival before which I really liked, but am looking forward to my new Grand Carnival original.gif  Hopefully should be able to pick it up early next week.  They are doing the window tint and reverse sensors that I've added, so just waiting for that now.

My kids just looked too squished in the SUVs, and that was with only imagining a capsule in there with them.  Will be good to have space for friends, too.

hi..
Never joined a group like this before, so not sure if I'm even in the right place.
A little about me...to start I guess.
I'm 40 yrs old, in a relationship and found out I'm pregnant for the first time in my life...after believing I couldn't have children for the last ten years...
I'm more then excited, (except for the nausea and lack of sleep) I found out when I was just 5 weeks now almost 14 weeks and still in a little shock. Baby is due 11 th July. I am not finding out the sex until he/she is born, names already picked out and impatiently waiting......


Blah blah blah

Congratulations and Welcome, DebBlah. That is a wonderful surprise after so long. I am hoping you have a fabulous pregnancy and ms ect goes soon. biggrin.gif

#21 Debblah

Posted 07 January 2013 - 10:43 AM

Thank you!
It was the best surprise I could ever get. I feel like I've been waiting for 20 yrs to be a mom.
Hasn't been very wonderful, all day nausea can suck big time but it's slowly going away YAY.
I am trying very hard to enjoy as much as I can. original.gif

Posted 07 January 2013 - 12:17 PM

Wow, DebBlah, great story!
We tried for 18 months before we were very lucky to have success on our first ICSI cycle in Jul 2010. Our DS arrived in April 2011, and I used the April DIG on EB extensively then. This is #2 for us, and is a total shock. We were told that we were sterile, DH's count etc was so drastically low, and I had PCOS. So we were going about our "business" with merry abandon, when I started feeling unwell in November. I couldn't believe it when the first POAS was a BFP, then the second, then the Dr told me I was "very pregnant". It's a little sooner than we were planning, but a welcome surprise nonetheless. I found out at 7 weeks, and I am 13+3 today. Had my first scan last week, and all is well.

Hi Ladies,

Well went for my u/s this morning and have one very active baby that refused to stay still lol
All is going well measuring 11wks exactly today and little kinder surprise has a healthy heartbeat of 163bpm. We took the girls with us today and they were trying to figure out how the baby was in my belly and they could see it(was so not explaining how the baby got there to a 6 and 3 yr old laughing2.gif)
DP sat there in total amazement was priceless.

Just a quick one today as gotta get dinner ready for the kids and DP before he starts work tonight. Will come back tomorrow and hopefully get a proper post in.

We also had our NT scan today: heart at 166 and baby measuring to our due date of 18 July. The results couldn't have been better and we are very grateful.

Baby was very chilled: legs crossed over at the ankles and arms up around the face. We watched for 45 minutes, absolutely mesmerised.
