Hope everyone is going well. Time is just flying by.
I really need to start thinking of what I need to buy for this baby. I pulled out DD1's baby clothes today, they were in storage, and some of them have stains on them, I'm sure they were clean when I packed them away, I guess it's just from 2 years of storage. Does anyone have any good tips for getting stains out of baby clothes?

ive been busy on holidays hope your all doing well. SKS 2009 i just tried nappy san and worked well with mine made it extra concentrated...hope it works.
DP, sent you a PM re trying to get on facebook as im still not on there i think dangersgirl added me but its not on there only her profile is, but also i do get those rare pains (mine is like a major stretchie pain) where sometimes cant stand straight, sometimes i even get them after going to the toilet- no 1's. Its just round ligament pain my OB said and this can be worse in subsequent pregnancies he advised.
Hope everyone else is chugging along fine . Ive been feeling well, this bub never stops though....moves...moves...moves. I'm already getting legs, elbows prodding out will have to post a belly pic soon...

Hi all, it's been AGES since I last logged on!
I hope everyone is travelling well and enjoying their pregnancy.
AFM...I simply can't wait for this to be over...after having goodness knows how long of horrible MS, I've now been diagnosed with Pelvic Instability (PI). This is all very new to me, my previous pregnancies I simply didn't have any pelvis or extreme back pain...but boy oh boy I'm finding out about it now!
Work is extremely difficult, I'm having a month of long service leave just to try and keep me on my feet.
Has anyone else experienced this??
I'm going to try and make a point this year to keep in touch with this group, might take me a fortnight to catch up atm!!

Hi girls hope you are all well.
I thought should give an update on how this pg is going. So I am now 29 weeks 4 days bump is measuring 3 weeks ahead currently. I had my GTT last monday and have GD which I did not have with Alanna.
I had an appointment at the hospital today where I was issued with a blood sugar monitor and have to check my levels 4 times a day from now on until bub is born.
I see Dr at hospital next week to get the referral for my 34 week scan to check if placenta has moved or not since my morph scan was done.
I only have 4-5 weeks of work left as it is a policy with them that I finish up and go on leave 6 weeks before I have bub.

29 weeks today. Feeling GIGANTIC compared to last time. Far more uncomfortable and suffering PSD again. Apart from that, all is good!
Planning another home waterbirth for this next bub, providing all runs smoothly.

Congratulations ladies on the birth of your baby boys!
My husband and I also welcomed a baby boy, Izak Harlie into the world on the 3rd of May (1 week early), weighing in a 9lbs 6oz. Izak was named in memory of his twin sisters Izabella and Hollie who passed away in March last year shortly after their birth. He is so beautiful and has brought an overwhelming sense of joy and happiness into our world.
