Hi everyone...  Not sure I'll be able to keep up in here, but I will try!
Baby number 2 on the way...  8 years after my first!  This kind of feels like I'm new to it all again!
Due 6th October.

Congrats Bec...  Super sticky vibes going your way :-)

Anyone else having brown/mucus discharge...  It's a bit scary,  doctor on Thursday...  So I'm hoping all is ok!

I hope to get to know you all...  Have a great day :-)

Congrats Bec! Sorry to hear how hard & heartbreaking last year was for you. Here's to a sticky keeper and a smooth and easy pregnancy and beautiful healthy bub! xx

Welcome Casii! Wow, 8 years, I'll bet that feels like a start-over. Brown blood is old blood and usually fine! I have bled a LOT (red blood, brown blood, gushing blood, pink streaks, spotting - the works!) during my first two pregnancies and those babies are currently off at school learning hard!   biggrin.gif  Hang in there. xx

I've been feeling a bit blah today, so hoping MS is coming soon. (HAHAHAH. Oh stupid me, I never learn.)  I lost all my pregnancy symptoms on Sunday and was so worked up! It's such a mind game! (And no wonder my boobs are so tender - I keep squeezing them all day long looking for tenderness, ahaha!)

Here's to a wonderful week for us all!  original.gif

xx Sunny

Hi Ladies

Sorry I've been quiet for the last week, just got back from a holiday in Brisbane. Will have to catch up on the last thread tonight, and I will update the list of due dates then too.  

Hope everyone is well original.gif

Hyphen... Hope you had a lovely time in Brisbane!  I hope you missed the floods!

Sunny flower... Oh yes, I feel like a first timer except I know what I'm in for at the end and how magical and amazing this journey is going to be :-). Thanks for your comforting words on the discharge...  How terrifying for you though will all you have been through WOW!  Must admit I have groped myself a feed times...  Can't mistake the waves of nausea though!

#11 MrsRadiant

Posted 11 February 2013 - 03:53 PM

The nausea is all new to me, I really hope I don't get it bad!
I just bought myself some ginger nut biscuits, ginger beer and lucozade! All set, fingers crossed!!
I decided to have a wander into our local baby shop, they had the strider compact in there, I've been eyeing off on the net,
I'm loving it!! Was wondering how big the wheels would be, being rural and all and quite impressed with them actually!!
The local shop can do a deal of $1250
For the pram, second seat, bassinet and capsule, ripper deal I reckon! Considering pram is $700 on its own.
Not ready to buy yet but the deal is a continuing thing, yay!!

#12 Casii

Posted 11 February 2013 - 04:39 PM

MrsRadiant...  we have the same due date original.gif
I've had waves of nausea...  mainly at afternoon and night! (and as I type right now)

Funny you mention prams,  I was looking at the city jogger today,  so amazingly easy to unfold and fold again...  



#13 MrsRadiant

Posted 11 February 2013 - 04:51 PM

Casii, my nausea is the same, much worse in arvo and night so far, I wasn't looking forward to grocery shopping today but got through it, only just!!
Glad I'm not the only one looking at prams!!  tongue.gif

#14 Christabelle86

Posted 11 February 2013 - 05:13 PM

Hi ladies!

Just found out yesterday that I'm pregnant and went to the doctor today.  I'm only 4 weeks and due 20th of October.  This is our first and is very much planned but it hasn't really sunk in yet!

No nausea yet but I have been cramping and having lower back pain which hasn't been altogether pleasant lol

My first appt with the obstetrician is 8th of April for my 12 week scan - can't wait!

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Christie

Mrs Radiant & Casii I am also looking at prams! Glad to hear others are too! I looked the other weekend and I also like the strider compact. The pram I have is falling apart so I can't wait to get a new one - one that my toddler can also go in. Although he will have just turned 3 when bub is born so I am wondering if he will still go in the pram? Anyone have any thoughts on this?

#16 Shello1

Posted 11 February 2013 - 06:54 PM

Also for those experiencing morning sickness like me, I bought the blackmores morning sickness formula tablets from the local Priceline and they seem to be taking the edge off. Not sure how they will go if it gets bad as things progress, but at the moment they are seeing me through the work day!

#17 Romy 1610

Posted 11 February 2013 - 07:06 PM

Shello1 - my dd will be a few days off 3 when bun is born and I'm wondering too if she will want to be in a pram by then. She is not overly keen on it now.
I think I will just take a baby carrier along with me just incase dd wants the pram and then I can carry bub.

#18 Shello1

Posted 11 February 2013 - 07:32 PM

Romy - that's a good idea. We do a lot of walking so he goes between trike and pram, but when we do a long one he will jump in and out of the pram because he gets tired. I think I will go for a pram I like anyway, as I need a new one. But I will get the extra seat and see how it goes I think. The other option is I was thinking of getting one of those skateboard type things that attach to the pram - although again he may get tired standing!

Hi!! My name is Lisa and I'm 6+4 weeks, due October 3 with #2. DD will be 3 in April.
Looking forward to getting to know everyone over the next 8 months biggrin.gif

I haven't had much in the way of morning sickness, but I think nausea is starting to kick in. My boobs, on the other hand have been mega sore. Changing position at night wakes me up because they get that bad when I move! They certainly weren't like that last pregnancy.

I can't wait for my daughter to find out, she LOVES babies and keeps asking if there's one in my tummy yet original.gif thinking of taking her to the 12 week scan and letting her find out that way.
OK well time to catch up on my TV shows before heading to bed!

Hi    
Found out last week we're due with baby #3, quite a surprise but very happy biggrin.gif We've gone through a lot on our TTC journey.After we had our son 7 years ago it took us 5 years and 5 miscarriages to finally get our daughter in 2011.
DD was a Clomid baby as I have PCOS so this baby is a nice surprise!
Look forward to sharing the journey with you all.

Morning ladies
I've woken today at 5.6 weeks pregnant and my symptoms have gone. Boobs not sore, no headache, not overly hungry. Starting to worry sad.gif
Has anyone else's symptoms gone??
I have a early ultrsound tomorrow, but seems like such a long wait between now and then.

#24 Chaton

Posted 12 February 2013 - 06:29 AM

Had my ultrasound yesterday and everything is where it should be and only one bubba, but I'm about a week behind my LMP dates so only 5w 2d, and there wasn't a visible heartbeat yet.  I'm really bummed out that there was no little flicker and we're a bit behind as we're impatient to tell people already.  I'm also going to stress and worry because there was no hb.  I'm taking comfort in fairly strong symptoms - stronger than when pregnant with DS.  Makes sense though as I didn't have a 28 day cycle, I had a 33 day cycle so there another 5 days already.

#25 Klj1

Posted 12 February 2013 - 07:24 AM

Yay! Week 7! Or at least I hope so, tbc Friday...

Romy, symptoms come and go, don't worry!

Chaton, my doc told me sometimes there is no hb till week 7 so try not to worry...

Congrats to the newbies!

I realised the past few nights how much I prefer sleeping on my tummy. Not sure how I'll go later...

Did start looking at all the stuff we are going to need, overwhelming! Maybe we should use our group buying power and get discounts lol! In the meantime, after week 12 I think we might need to start a purchasing advice thread.
