Blue cup- I hope your little princess decides to make an appearance soon! One of my girlfriends was scheduled to be induced and the night beforehand she went into labour naturally so I hope that happens for you too!
You are right... It definitely feels more real when you start setting up the nursery!
Sorry I've been MIA a little bit last week... Had a but of a scare with acute abdominal pain that landed me in hospital bubble is fine... But there could possibly be something wrong with my liver or kidney... I will have more tests once I'm over in Perth...
How is everyone else going?
Newbies be kind to yourselves! I know how scary every little twinge can be... Take time out though to spoil yourselves and enjoy your little secrets!
Hope- can you believe we are in the third trimester!! Even though it feels like our journey to get here has taken forever it actually feels like momentum is building finally!!
Jaynen- not long for you now either! Any early signs??

Goodluck BlueCup - not long now!!!!!
Hey emmy - i know its gone pretty fast i must admit, it feels like only yesterday we were in the TTC group... Wow i am so glad you and bubs are ok.. you certainly have had some dramas during your pg.. hopefully that means a nice easy labour !! Oh dear i shouldnt say that i have been so lucky this pg, no bleeding no dramas (touch wood) but i certainly dont want a difficult birth ha Guess we cant plan for these things, just go with the flow.. I often think OMG in 3 months i will have a bub in the house, its freaky. So when do you officially move to Perth to stay. How is your DH finding it over there.
Hi to everyone else
Geez i am in a real colourful mood today he xx

Congratulations Jaynen on the birth of your little girl!
Bluecup - I hope your baby has arrived as well, I will be stalking with everyone else
AFM - my last blood test, the levels were really good. My OB called me to say it all looked good and not to stress about the ultrasound. I had the ultrasound at a specialist place on Wednesday and it also went well I saw the heart beat for the first time! I've never had a scan with a heart beat present - usually I'd had them when misscarrying or about to do so, so it was almost hard to believe. I was a bit stunned. DH started a new job on Monday so missed out. I feel more positive now that this will be our take home baby, just got to keep believing. My due date is now expected to be 1/10/2013, the heart beat was 105 and the baby is 3.9mm. I've been really tired this week and had waves of nausea but overall feel pretty good. Just chilling out this weekend.
Hope everyone else is well! Looking forward to seeing more graduations

Congratulations Jayen!! So happy for you!! xxx
And congratulations too to Blue Cup - hope all has gone well and you're both happy, healthy and all loved up xxx
Dreaming - can't believe how far you've come! So happy and excited for you!! FX that with each day you become a little more confident that this PG will last the whole way through. I'm almost 17wks and had a freak out during the week where I just got so scared and worried that maybe something could have happened to my baby and perhaps I didn't know (like last time), so I can't say that your fears will be a thing of the past once you're through T1, but you just have to keep on believing that it will work out, getting reassurance from docs when needed, and trying not to read to many sad stories of things going wrong for others.
ksds - fantastic news! One thing my doc said is that you need to keep in mind that each PG is a separate event and nothing that happened in earlier PGs has any effect on how this one will turn out. So hard to always be confident, but things are looking very good for you and FX this is a nice, long and uneventful PG!
AFM - not much to report, still finding it hard to believe/remember that I'm PG. I have a little bulge and it always shocks me when I see me reflection as I need to do a double-take and remind myself that I haven't put on weight but actually am PG, lol! Not feeling any movement yet, but saw my doc this week (after a teary day when I just couldn't get control of the fears) and all was fine as bub's heart is still beating up in the 150's. I had thought that once I got to T2 that all my fears would melt away, but I've recently heard of quite a few people losing their bubs at 16-20wks and it all finally got to me, probably the lack of sleep not helping this too. But have booked my morph scan for Feb 25 and cannot wait to find out what we're having! Unfortunately booking the scan was probably the thing that pushed me over the edge because I'm terrified of US's since the one where bub's heart was no longer beating, but I'm trying to focus on the happiness and celebrations of knowing what were having rather than letting the fear of bad news get to me.

Congratulations Jaynen!!!! I would also love to know the name if you wouldnt mind sharing (perhaps you could share by pm if you dont want to post?). I hope you will join us in the follow on group.
Bluecup - Anxiously awaiting your news. Hope all went well.
Hi to everyone else. I know its really hard to cope with the stress and worry when things have gone wrong in the past - I struggled throughout my whole pregnancy so I really feel for you all. But just know that your feelings are normal and they dont mean that something will go wrong this time - they are related to your past not your future!!

Thanks for all the lovely messages. Its so nice to see old familiar faces in here too. After much drama, we finally met our little bubba yesterday at 1pm. And guess what? He's a boy! We guessed wrong. Our little boy eventually made his entrance through the sunroof so i guess itll take us a bit longer to recover. Once we get back home & back to normal I'll come back for personals, &share our birth story if anyone's interested. Main thing is DS and I are both doing well, and DH is an amazing Dad. I love seeing him be Dad, its so sweet! Oh yeah, DS is a whopping 4.95kg with beautiful deep blue eyes, and we named him Felix. I love my boys so much!

Congrats Jaynen and Blue Cup on the arrival of your perfect bundles! Look forward to hearing birth stories etc when you are ready to share. I'm sure you'll find it hard to tear yourselves away from your new families for awhile yet.
Blue Cup - love your "sunroof" description. And Felix is an awesome name!
Hi to all!
AFM - haven't posted (or read) for a fortnight. I had 2 weeks scheduled to take off work, and am so pleased I did, because my MS was horrible and I did very little other than veg and whinge. My Dr gave me Maxalon but the stuff is useless. But I have had a few not so bad moments, and as I've started week 11, I am so hoping my MS journey is coming to a close so I can actually enjoy being pregnant.
Posted 11 February 2013 - 02:26 PM
Congratulations Blue Cup!! Wowee Felix is a big bubba!! (I was guessing boy for you!!) I'd be glad he came out the sun roof at that size!!
Enjoy all your precious snuggles xx

Thank you for the well wishes! Im know what people mean when they say its love at first sight, as soon as I saw her my heart just melted.
Birth story - I woke up around 5am thinking I peed myself lol and jumped up out of bed and it just wouldnt stop so I woke up hubby and told him my watersbroke and I have never seen him get up so quick lol I was only feeling minor contractions but called the hospital and they said to come in and but not rush. So I had a shower and off we went. We called my obstetrician on the way in and he met us at the hospital. Got admitted and checked over and they realised she was still high and almost transverse and she wouldnt be coming anytime soon and my ob said it would be best to have a csection. So I was prepped at about 7:30 and baby was out by 8am.. it was all very quick but im just happy to have my baby girl in my arms.
BLUECUP!! CONGRATULATIONS DARLING!! wow Felix is a big bubba! I hope you are ok and your recovery is going good. I just kept up with the pain meds and take whatever they give you coz it really helps you recover. Isnt it just as an amazing feeling. Big hugs to you and bubs!
We got home today! so glad to be home and getting settled. I guess its time for me to move on but I just want to say thank you to you all for your support and I cant wait for you all to meet your bubbas. But I will be you lovely ladies. xoxoxox
