Hi due with 5th in Dec. Current kids ages 17yrs B, 15yrs G, 3yrs G, and 15mth.

Any advise to mum of many, some poeple say we are at higher risk of all sorts of things. I feel that i have been very fortunate with the other 4 does that i'm a little more worried about this one. Isn't any pregnacy a role of the dice or are there things i should be awear of this time round?

Just popping in to share our news.
Baby #6 on the way!
Forgive me but I don't recognise many faces, probably because I've had my head stuck in the loo for the last 4 months!! Morning sickness has NOT been my friend!
Thankfully it has eased over the last 10 days .....

So far it has been an incredibly stressful pregnancy, hopefully I will find a burst of energy to enjoy this final (and OMG I mean FINAL) baby. original.gif

Thanks Now for 4.
Goodluck for next month, see you back then!

4 little loves, good luck with telling family. Ours was disastrous. Gosh I should know by now. My MIL said "isn't 5 enough, when are you ever going to stop?" right to my 9 year old!! How F*&^^^ rude!! So I said "don't you mean, congratulations?" She turned beet red, so glad I embarrased her! Cow.
And as for my **** mother, she said , ahum, wait for it, "oh my god, are you keeping it?" so there ya go!!

Needless to say I've been a tad apprehensive about telling ANYONE else, but friends etc., have been very supportive and happy for us.
Hi howls, I've been borderling GD my past two pregnancies at the first test, then when I sat for a fasting test, I passed with flying colours. So I don't have any advice on the GD diet.
I have the most revolting flue/cold thing that I just can't shake, now on my second lot of AB's, nothing is working. Feeling quite miserable about that. But I have my morph scan this week, very excited and looking forward to seeing baby again.
Laura I just saw you in here, congratulations, how are things going for you?

Hi ladies,

Haven't been in for quite a while, but just thought i'd share the news of DD5 who arrived on Anzac Day.  

Our gorgeous little girl, Grace Victoria was born at 1.35am, 53.3cm and 3.5kg.

Was a bit of a dramatic birth by emergency CS. After having 3 other vaginal births (even with twins), was not expecting a CS at all. I guess that goes to show that every birth is different.

Anyway, my waters broke at 11pm on Tuesday. We went straight to hospital as there was meconium in the waters. Fluid was greeny brown. The OB decided to do a CS after her heart rate began to drop with each contraction and the meconium was thick. After she was born she had to spend a day and a half in special care as she had trouble breathing and had to go on antibiotics because of the meconium.

We're home now though. She is doing beautifully and her 4 sisters are absolutely thrilled.

I'm so sorry for your loss Nowfor4. Miscarriage is awful. Little Grace was a twin and i'll be forever wondering what might have been. Look after yourself.

4littleloves - good luck with telling your family. Yes I most certainly wanted to slap people with our reactions, but all our real friends have been genuinely happy so it's kind of balanced.
When are you due?  Oh and the obs fees, yes they are a bit nasty aren't they. Because of the medicare capping on obstetrics you don't get back much for management of pregnancy anymore.

My baby is one today! What a year it's been! original.gif

Hi All

Dark Passenger and nessrose congratulations on your new bubs! I know what it is like to have a traumatic birth, I nearly lost my (and bubs) life at my last birth, it was horrible! Took me nearly a year to recover physically and mentally I have blocked it out! Enjoy your new bundles!

I am 21 weeks now and all is on track so far. We found out we are having a little girl and the whole family are so excited. I still can't believe it myself, as I was convinced this one was a boy. Now I am completely stumped on names as Ethan Gabriel won't do anymore! laughing2.gif

I have been working full time, plus uni, and am so exhausted I feel like crying! But I have only one week to go and my placement is over, thank goodness! I plan to put my feet up for a little RnR!

Sorry I don't have much time for personals as I need to hit my bed! I'll pop back in soon!

Congrats on the births and BFP's
I am now 32 weeks and totally over being pregnant,pretty sure this will be our last.Aches and pains everywhere and im so tired BUT pregnancy is going fine health wise and bubs is growing very nicely.

Congrats Dark Passenger, what an awesome birthday Hunter has  wub.gif

4 little loves - ooh a December baby! What a great chrissy present! Yes, I've asked my OB for a loyalty discount $, he just giggled at me, I wasn't joking!

PTTR - ooh you sound tired hun, we must be due around the same time if you're 21 weeks .... that's me this week. I'm sure I will go a tad earlier though as this will be a repeat caesar. I also think we are having a girl although there is nothing to confirm, just a wriggly baby that's not co-operating in that department. I was sooooo sick with m/s this time around, all my research pointed at a girl, so we'll see. In that case we are stumped for names as well. Boys name is sorted, but not a girl......

Had my scan last week and bubby looks awesome, so happy to see "it" on the screen and the sonographer said some nice things. Haven't felt much kicking but now I know why, placenta is very much in front, so just starting to get some little flutters in there wub.gif

We had a party at the weekend and I got nothing but flourishing positive comments, 'well done', congrats, 'supermum' etc., so that was a big boost of confidence. Compared to what rotten things the families have said.

Congrats to all Mums of new babies and newly pregnant again Mums too! original.gif

Is it possible to be soooo over being pregnant at only 24 weeks???  And while I'm feeling as big as a whale and fatigued to the point of wishing I could just spend all day in bed, I'm noticing slender, energetic prengnant women bouncing around everywhere!!  Why can't I be like them?  Ah well...

I think I just need a good ol' whinge.  I feel like a total failure as a pregnant woman, if it's possible to be one.  I'm sick to death of people suggesting that I've had such bad morning sickness/fatigue and have put on soooo much weight with this pregnancy because it's my fourth baby. They assume that my body can't cope with so many pregnancies. (Nevermind that I felt just as crappy during my other pregnancies and put on 30kgs in total with my first!!) I suppose it's because those women who do actually have children over here in Spain (many don't ever) usually only have 1 or 2, with only children being the most common thing by far.  The concensus seems to be that it's not natural to have more than 2 kids or something! LOL  Drives me nuts.

I'm only surprised that no one has put forward that my age is contributing to my weight/lethargy/sickness.  (I'm 35.)  But then women over here tend to start families very late, and 35 actually seems quite average of an age to be pregnant.

I suppose everything is relative.

Oh well. Hope everyone is keeping well and enjoying their new babies/pregnancies!! *hugs*

Posted 14 May 2012 - 05:59 PM

Yes morti! It's definitely possible. I'm almost 26 weeks and I feel exactly as you described  sad.gif . I'm also suffering from bad veins in one leg (first time ever even with so many pregnancies) which meAns I'm supposed to wear compression stockings. I feel for women who have vein problems with all their pregnancies.

I really hope you start feeling better soon and just ignore all those judgemental comments, they are just in awe of you  wink.gif .

#96 4Littleloves

Posted 16 May 2012 - 06:43 PM

I'm one of those mums who suffer from veins  sad.gif not looking forward to them getting worse this pregnancy...will have to have them operated on one day.....


anyway just thought I'd pop in and say that I told family last weekend...as went surprisingly well  biggrin.gif only a few comments from my grandma and that was all really...very happy with my mum and dads reactions.. mum cried (gave them a poem) ..and not one ad comment ... wow!!!!   biggrin.gif    biggrin.gif

oh and my mum crying was in a good way! LOL

Hi,

Haven't been in for awhile! But thought I'd let you know that #5 arrived last Monday. Cienna Rose was born at 6.07pm after a very quick 30min labour, 7pd14oz at 37w3days so a good size and all very healthy and happy original.gif  The other kids are in love with her and there's been no big upset so far which is nice! I'm really glad that the pregnancy is done with and happy that it was my last one as it all went really smoothly and was a nice final chapter biggrin.gif




#98 ~my happiness~

Posted 21 May 2012 - 10:41 AM

congrats Mickeyboo on the birth of Cienna! What a lovely final chapter for your family!!

hugs Morti and Laura on being "over it" at 24 and 26 weeks!
I'm nearly 23 and not over it, but have certainly noticed my belly getting in the way now and not being able to bend and/or reach when I need to! FINALLY starting to get a few more rumbles and kicks so happy about that.

well done 4 little loves on telling family. Glad your mum had tears of joy for you! I'm going to be like that for my kids when they announce their pregnancies! Nothing but utter happiness for them!

All going fine here, doing lots of sorting and tidying and organising and feeling good for it. Wanted to get it all done so that I don't have to think about it closer towards bubs.

And finally decided on a name too, which is a big deal for me, I'm a planner and like to know these things!!
