@ nicky i read ur post about dreaming of a dragon: ur child will be born in the year of the dragon, water dragon to be precise ( chinese astrology). just google it and see the personality and traits of water dragon babies. Maybe baby is warning you already that " hey i will be a little dragon", normally they are fiesty but the water in them calms them down though.


Thanks for that, it makes a lot of sense. Looking back, although dragons have yet to star in my dreams again they are always in there in some way, even if it is just a glimpse or a picture or statue. Very strange... lol but kinda cool. Kinda weird in some of the more frisky ones tho...  roll2.gif

Hey all!

Hope the last week of scans have gone well for people. And good luck to First&Freaking and Bibendum with your scans today.

All went well with mine on Wednesday (maaaaasive relief). Took some extra time as the little thing was dancing and kicking like crazy. The ultrasound place just called me then - 1 in 11,449 chance of downs. Phew phew phew.

I've started feeling almost back to normal the last few days - in the mornings at least (bit more tired in the afternoons / evenings still). Feels so good! And two days now without needing to be sick so I'm hoping things are on the improve.

First&Freaking - so glad you mentioned stitches! I seem to get them on upper left side when I'm walking even when it's nice and slow. A few of them have been bad enough to almost stop walking - and slowing down further doesn't seem to make them go away.

I have put on a few kilos and definitely sticking out a bit. Found some old pants that had stretched and have been wearing them. Even though it's my first, I think my lack of stomach muscles is probably to blame!

Also on my list is to check out the fb group - though I can't access fb from work so I hope there's still a few posts on here!

Hey everyone - welcome to new folks!  Just reading about others' scans - congratulations! - and coming in to update on my own.

It was a /long/ scan - almost 50 minutes - because baby wasn't cooperating with the positions the sonographer needed...  They recorded the whole thing, so now I have 50 minutes of DVD of baby squiggling around, alternating with my insides squiggling around as the sonographer tried to get baby to move by jiggling me...  She finally got what she was after, and then asked the lab to rush our results so we wouldn't have to wait for Monday (we did the scan the very last thing on Friday - had done the blood test two weeks ago).  The bloods, as it turns out, were great, and the NT measurement was also very good, so we've come back with a vastly lower risk than would be estimated by my age alone, so we're comfortable with this result, and won't pursue any further testing until the 20-week morphology scan.  

She could never get baby in the right position to see whether or not it had a nasal bone, but since all other measurements and bloods were good, and since there were no other soft markers, she expects the nasal bone is there - she could just never get a clear view of the face, without a hand in front of it - looking back over the DVD, there are a couple fleeting glimpses of what is probably the bone (looks like the images I've seen for it online, and the sonographer said as much talking to us about the exam after), but the baby would always somersault away from the probe right when she tried to zero in on it, or slap its hand across its face such that the hand bones obscured the facial ones...  It was driving her crazy...  She said this meant the risk reported by the lab was about double what she thinks our risk actually is - but we were happy with the risk as given by the lab anyway, so it doesn't make a difference in this case.  It might have made a difference if any other results were cause for concern.

So baby is still there!  Very mobile!  Heart rate okay, right number of appendages, brain, heart, stomach, etc., doing what they're supposed to be at this stage.  Overall, we're really reassured...

We have a pregnancy class at the hospital tomorrow - not really sure what this covers?  They do a labour one much later - I'm thinking this early one might just be "don't eat soft cheese", etc., but we're going in case it covers something we don't know...

Hope all is well with everyone!

Hi everyone. It's been a while since I've been onto EB ... was away in the UK over Christmas and New Year ... so I just wanted to pop my head in and say hello. I hope everyone is trundling along OK so far!

Had our NT scan in the UK and came out with a really good result of 1/16000 chance of Downs for each twin, which is a huge relief!! They have done very well in their first test! They seem to be growing nicely and doing all the things they should be doing ... even though I'm not doing so well on the feeding them properly part.

My husband is joining the army as an officer this week and leaves for 10 weeks of training in Canberra on Tuesday, leaving me all on my lonesome in Sydney. Feeling really anxious and upset about not having him around ... hope the time goes quickly. I need to throw myself into things and keep busy ... good time to start back on the exercise regime I guess!!!

If anyone is based in Sydney and feels like meeting up to swim, walk, coffee etc and just generally chat July babies, that would be awesome! I don't know that many people in Sydney really (only moved from the UK last year) and none of them are pregnant ... so it would be good to make some new friends with a common interest!

Hi everyone, glad to read about all the positive results and happy to report the same here :-)  So nice to be able to tell people and such a relief to see a healthy bub on the screen. It feels real now, and I'm letting myself get excited finally!

DD was cute too - she looked at the screen and said "baby!", and when I asked where the baby was, she pointed to my tummy (well, more to my chest but that's a small detail haha) - so she's understanding on some level. She just has no idea how her world is about to change!

twinsmama my DH is army too, it's a change of lifestyle if you aren't used to it, so maybe check out the EB Military Families buddy group, the ladies in there are a wonderful support and are full of information about navigating the many infuriating Defence systems. Or you are welcome to PM me too if you have any questions, i'm in Sydney too :-)

Oh sad - it looks like everyone is on Facebook ... which I can't get at work, so hope a few check in here sometimes too :-)

Charli73, I get pelvic instability problems too, scarily it has started early this pregnancy, when it didn't start till much later with DD. I've got my support belt out for walking already - ugh, hate that thing!

Hello!  New here to EB.

I'm an Aussie living in Northern Europe, pregnant with No. 2, due July 10th (but most likely earlier).  I have a cheeky, chubby and smart 2 y.o. girl.

All going well.  Refused the downs scan.  Won't find out the sex.  Still got morning sickness (didn't have the first time).  Just started full time work again.  Terrified about having a quick labour.

Well, that is me.  Looking forward to getting to know you all :-)

Thanks for checking in, A2 original.gif

Courtney - yep, I'm having random morning sickness too. I asked a midwife today and she said it could be bubs squishing my stomach up so food comes up too easily, or if on an empty stomach, it could be reflux causing stomach acid build up.

#68 Suz:)

Hello everyone! My name is Susanna, and everyone calls me Suz!
