Had my 12w scan today and all is looking great. Now just have to believe that this is really happening as I've been a bit nervous. Can't believe how big my belly is already!!
Hope everyone is well.

Congratulations Amy!!! That is fantastic news I am very happy for you xx
Congratulations to all the new bubs from the past few months - it has been a while since I replied
Loz - how are you doing? You are looking great in your recent FB pics Not long for you now!
Thanks also for the congrats on baby #2! I am now 20 weeks and feeling pretty good, besides being exhausted of course! Mia is very excited and tells everyone that she has baby brother in her tummy and I have baby sister in mine I have no idea what I'm having and not planning to find out. We had our scan on Tuesday and bubs is doing well They picked up at the 12 week scan that my placenta was completely in the way and it had only slightly moved at the 20 week scan, so I have to have another scan around 30-34 weeks to see if it has moved. I was initially a bit shocked that I might have to have a C/S this time around, but I have come to terms with it since there is nothing I can do to make it move and no choice if it doesn't! As long as baby is safe and sound, that's all that matters. This time around took us almost a year to conceive so I feel very blessed
Happy 3rd birthday to all our DIG Nov07 babies too! How fast is time flying!

Robyn - congrats on reaching 20 weeks! Glad all is going well and hopefully the placenta behaves and moves out of the way for you.

Hi to everyone else!!

i hope you guys don't mind the 'cutting and pasting' from my dec 10 buddy group.
thank you all so much for your well wishes. as you know my little girl decided she could no longer wait to come into the world.
here is a quick rundown on the birth:
wed 1 dec
10.45pm waters broke...in bed
thu 2 dec
2pm - contractions started. 3-4cm dilated
4-4.30am - 7-8cm dilated. in sooooo much pain. no epi, just gas
5.30 - sudden urge to push. hadn't even established that i was 10cm and able to push, but body knew otherwise. layed down and there was the head...caught us all by surprise. she came out in a bit of a hurry so i ended up with 2nd degree tears. on the way out her shoulder got stuck. when she came out she wasn't breathing (went into shock due to sudden birth) and it completely freaked us out. thank the lord she finally did after 20-30seconds.
5.45am - stella grace was born
i was still in a world of pain, having to birth an apparently very large placenta, then it took 4 needles for them to stitch me up (which i could feel them pulling)(i did not feel the needles thanks to some major gas sucking!!!)
she then spent the next 24hours in special care nursery. this sucked and i didn't get to feed her til 2pm. thankfully she took to it beautifully.
i hope i haven't scared anyone. for the first timers.....ds birth was actually easier. 2nd time round was as they say - quicker, but much more intense.
here are some pics
good luck to those waiting and i can't wait to hear your news.
oh....any signs of labour - had a vey small stringy bit of mucus a day or two before, other then that, just uncomfortable sitting, lying, standing etc. no real indication at all

Loz - congratulations again on the safe arrival of Stella, she is beautiful & so much hair (as I am sure everyone comments on).
How is everyone's planning going for Christmas? We are pretty well done, just have to do grocery shopping, lunch is at our house this year so it will be nice not to go anywhere. Then we are having a few friends over for tea.
