Kelkelkiv - Welcome and congratulations on baby number 2. I hope your morning sickness disappears soon. I am doing my morphology scan privately as I was booked in to have it done at the hospital where I am delivering this baby but they do not allow siblings to be present and I have no where to
leave my 20 month old son so I have booked into a private place that did my dating scan etc as they didn't mind my little boy being at the appointments.
Mrs_L - Welcome and congratulations on your second.
Akadia - I agree, it does seem like everyone will have an opinion and not agree with how you plan out your own life.
Just hurtful at times and frustrating. So you will be finding out the gender of your little one? I have my morphology scan on the 24th of April. I am looking forward to having picture evidence that this baby is a little girl. I haven't experienced period like pain with this pregnancy but I did with a previous one.
AFM - Still just plodding along. Discovered I can eat crispy chicken strips that have been oven baked last night so at least that gives me more opinions than vegemite on toast, sandwiches and crackers. Seem to be suffering from a little insomnia, the body thinks 2am is a great waking time too. Otherwise I am well and enjoying this pregnancy.

Perpectual sound - I agree, I do need to come up with something. Sadly I have baby brain at the moment too so if any of you girls think of a great response, it would be appreciated

how about something like
"Oh thanks!! I didn't realise you were an expert on my family and my body!! I'll keep that in mind when we're trying for number 12!"

Hi twilightangel. My suggestion is to say "well my husband and I have decided to keep trying until we have one we like"
With that. I'd like to say Hi! I have been reading these posts from afar, waiting until I was more confident to join in (and we passed a few nervous milestones)
My DH and I had been TTC for baby #1 for 18months after I was diagnosed with a hormone imbalance (pituitary tumour). I had a MC in Aug last year and now I am 15weeks! We got a slightly higher risk NT and Trisomy 18 for my age group (33) and so we decided to have the Harmony Test. The results came back today and we are low risk (1:10,000) for Trisomy 21,18 and 13.
I am looking forward to picking your brains as I will be completely new to all of this

Perpectual sound and oz snoopy - Thank you so much, I like both of those and will keep them in mind
Welcome oz snoopy and congrats. I also did the harmony test due to a high risk for trisomy 21. It is such a relief getting that low risk result isn't it?
Quiet night for me, kids are all in bed asleep and hubby is on night shift tonight so just me, trashy tv and some chocolate

Welcome Oz_Snoopy - you must be so excited by those results they are excellent. Did you find out the baby gender aswell?
That's exciting twilight!
AFM - DH is playing a new online game so watching one born every minute - not sure if it was a good idea or not LOL
