Hi Allele,

Just wanted to say hello. As we seem to live close by -  I live out in success and I am also seeing Dr Colin Blair. Due the 30th June (comprised date from doctor) dating scan in december said I was due 4th July but saw Dr Blair again last week and he still thinks its June so he gave me the date of the 30th.

this is our first baby so super excited and scared at the same time. was pregnant last year but had a miscarriage at 6 weeks. took us over a yr to get pregnant again as my partner used to work up north and do 4 weeks on and 1 off roster. Now that I am preggers he works here in the city.

booked into for my 19th week scan on the 14th Feb so really excited to see bub and cant wait. Pregnancy has been going really good.. a lil morning sickness in the beginning but that is slowly going away now currently I am 17 weeks. I am a little overweigt but since getting pregnant I have lost 7 kgs which Dr said was great.. he said if I stay at the same weight till the end would be great and if I loose a couple of more kgs wont be bad either so trying to eat properly so I dont put on anymore!

Anyways enough about me.. congrats to you and hope all is going well. Take care

Hi All

Another Sandgroper bbaby.gif here on 24/6/2012!

This is baby no 2 - DS is 6 and very excited, i had him when i was living in Sydney so this time around we are going to SOG Murdoch also - seeing Dr Blair.

I have been reading the "Due in June" threads but not posting much, until 12 week scan on the 15th and bloods being done this Thursday - a bit reluctant to share too much with people - even though that is getting harder by the day as the belly pops out!

Ive been home all this week sick with a cold, thanks school, and coughing so much my stomach muscles hurt. I have to brace myself everytime i cough or sneeze to stop the muscles from hurting too much. They tell you not to start doing ab exercises etc when you fall pregnant cause it can dislodge/harm baby - is this any different? Doubly looking forward to this scan to make sure all is ok and hoping that its not doing the little leech any damage!

Has anyone's OB mentioned getting the Whooping Cough vaccination in your 2nd Trimester? My OB did and advised DH and any one who is likely to come in contact with baby in the first 3months to have it... Researching it is scary to think that our little ones could be harmed by WC, but still wondering - just how far do you go?

Anyway - thats enough of my neurotic worries, im going to go eat croissants and have an afternoon nap, maybe watch pride and Prejudice one more time... :-)

Best of luck girls!

HI Jenush

Wow we are so close! Im in Hammond Park, Eden Green estate near the new IGA and Guardian Pharmacy :-)

Had my 19 weeks scan today at SJOG, after waiting an hour with a full bladder! I think that Kelly had her scan today too! We didnt find out the sex, DH and i just want healthy baby and not really fussed what the sex is. We did find out though that i have Type 1 Placenta Previa. The placenta may move up as baby grows (fingers crossed) otherwise it will mean C-Sect for us...  They will rescan at 30 weeks and we will know more then.

Glad to hear that youre eating well and healthy, i put on 25kg with my first DS and it is defiently better to have less weight to lose then more! So far ive only gained 6kgs but i was gym and watching what i ate before so it was probably just slack eating that gave me the most weight gain... im going to try and curb it though so i dont gain more then 15kg this time around.

Been reading a good book, Natural Hospital Birth by Cynthia Gabriel about how to have a natural birth, in hospital under the care of an OB. Quite informative and even though i have already had one vag birth - i am learning lots that i didnt know my first time around.

Keep in touch and stay hydrated!!!

I did have my scan yesterday!!! What time were you there mine was at 11am at western ultrasound murdoch original.gif  We are having a very healthy little GIRL!!! We weren't going to find out but i am soooo glad we did original.gif
We are so very blessed to get one of each, i am one of 4 girls so was expecting another boy to be honest... Although this pregnancy is alot different to my first...

BTW someone mentioned a facebook group in the other thread and just wanted to let you know i am part of one through the huggies forum and it is excellent!! There are about 5 or 6 girls from WA there as well...

Kelly - Yay! Glad youre going to have one of each. The 4D scans were amazing! DH and I are blown away with the quality of the images that we got - nothing like when i had DS 7 years ago.
We were at SJOG murdoch at 1145 - i dont think it was western... not sure! Do you go into SJOG for your scans or was it not at the hospital?

Hi guys, I'm new here. I'm due June 30, so will have 20 week scan next week. Really anticipatory. I feel great, so that's good.

I'm going with CMWA, back up hospital is Swan. Do any of you have advice on getting a 4D scan? I am not sure Swan will do that, as they haven't yet. I'm not natively Australian, and though I've been here for a decade, I still haven't mastered the medical/ referral system. I suppose I should ask my midwife, but maybe you ladies know?

Hi Allele

Yes we are definitely close... I am actually off Hammond Road... about a 2 min drive from the new IGA.

Glad your 19 weeks scan went well. And yes just wait till your 30 weeks scan to see what they say about the Type 1 Placenta... hopefully will be ok. What was the scan like?? I was wondering what the do if you dont want to find out the sex? DH and I are in the same thought as you - want a healthy baby so want to leave the sex of the baby as a surprise.

Appetite has started to come back a bit now... so trying to watch what I eat still. and haven't managed to put any on so - so far so good!

Thanks for the book suggestion.. I will look it up and have a read of it - with this being our first baby I am a little clueless about it all so will definitely read this.

Well I hope you are well and have been managing ok with the hot weather we've had... will keep in touch and take care.

Hi - I will try and make it, have been meaning to get to IKEA for ages so it makes it a good excuse, I have a friend due End of May - do you mind if she pops along too?

Also I am on FB - is there a group just for us June to be mums? I haven't been great with keeping up-to date on the forums as work has just been too busy and am yet to find out if there is a EB forum app for the phone so I can keep up to date while on the bus!

Hello, there is a facebook thread where you can click on the link or just PM either leomonkey or alvarywinters as you need to be a friend with one of them, they will add you to the group and then take your name off their friend list if you want original.gif It is alot better in facebook as its easier to keep up original.gif.
