Congratulations to all those and their newborns - loving the pictures. And the reminder that that's why I'm suffering and it's all for a worthwhile, wonderful end
Tinkster: I'm sorry that you're suffering again. You had some great advice a few weeks ago for me in the Due in September thread I posted about telling work and then the trouble I was having with Maxalon.
I've had nearly two weeks off work but am finding that Restavit is giving me some relief if I take it regularly so I think I've found the best I can get with that now. I have also struggled a bit psychologically the last few days but I'm not sure what to do about that part
My story of woe today is that I've caught DH's cold and my throat is like razor blades. So vomiting feels like I'm pouring acid over said razor blade wounds

Just popping in to congratulate MrsNorthman.. Also loving all the bubby photos so cute.
Sorry to those just starting out on this journey, it surely does suck....
I also can't believe how big some of your bubbas have got wow time sure does fly even if it feels like it is dragging for me LOL.
Almost 34 weeks here so on the serious count down now. Can not wait still feels a bit sureal doesn't actually feel like I'm going to be having a baby IYKWIM. DH home in 12 days for his week off so I'm really hoping to finally get organised for this little bub.
Still feeling like crap ended up in hospital on Tuesday & need to go back for follow up appointment today. At least I got to see the hospital maternity ward, looks quite nice for a public hospital, still not sure about sharing a room but I'm sure I'll manage.
To make things worse I have developed severe SPD, can hardly walk, can't sleepdue to pain & feel like a 90 year old lady. I'm trying to enjoy the last few weeks of this pg but gee it's hard.
Sorry for the me, me post. Miss you guys who have graduated wish we could chat somewhere else about positive things like being HG free
Anyway hopefully chat soon..

Sorry JA to hear about your hospital trip and SPD pain, how awful!! Don't try to enjoy this, just survive it. It is worth it... I can relate to feeling old, I felt so fragile and unwell with HG.
Would post a photo but haven't worked out how yet, and dont get much computer time now (am on the phone now).
Have been trying to settle Sage for an hour now, she's happy to doze in my arms but in the crib she wakes up...and an so tired as DD2 got up at 5am, and turned on Sage's light which woke her up. I eventually got them both to bed but it was too late as DD1 got up then!! It was so much easier with 1 baby, but harder too as I felt like I didn't know what to do back then! But on the whole life is so much better than when pregnant.
DH actually said he wished we'd stopped at 2 yesterday, I couldn't believe it! I had to cope with so much more than him and I don't regret having Sage. And I think it will only get easier as the bigger DDs become more independent, even though one day Sage will hit the terrible twos

Marlo is soooooooo cute!
Dropping in to send my love and support to those suffering. Do whatever it takes to get through... I hope things ease up soon. J-A I hope the last stretch goes fast you poor thing, you're one strong lady though, I know you'll power through, I hope you're getting lots of support

Thanks J-A and Pookems
J-A, I also get bad spd and bad sacro-iliac joints. i bought a sacro-iliac belt from a physio and it really helped. You wear it around your hips and it sorts of keeps everything "together" so walking wasn't so painful. You don't wear it to bed so I still had a bit of pain when turning over etc. but at least during the day it wasn't so bad...
