Spotty, I am so so sorry. This is so heart-wrenching and  I know no amount of comforting words will help.  sad.gif  Will be thinking of you.

Indigo, I wanted to say Happy 40th birthday hun!!! i am sure your baby and its racing heartbeat were the greatest birthday pressie for you. I am very happy for you. You deserve this.

Wishful, glad that DH was so sweet and you are feeeling better.

AFM : Thanks ladies for your wishes. I wasnt really myself honestly as the days neared scan, feeling really unsettled and increasingly anxious...I am really hopeless I know...thank you all for putting up with me. Even when DH came back to fetch us out for lunch before the scan, I was experiencing shortness in breath...I was just jittery and moody. Felt like I was going to drop dead anytime from the anxious unknown!

We had two embies transferred and scan showed we are having a single pregnancy. Our little bean is 1cm and heartbeat 148bpm. All is well. I finally was able to breathe properly. Sonographer says I am 7weeks4days so my due date is 20 Oct.

M2ODS - congratulations on your scan!
Spotty - I'm so sorry.... There's really nothing else I can say. I've just typed five different sentences and none of them sum up what I'd like to convey. My thoughts are with you and your family x

M2ODS, congratulations hun! A huge relief, I'm sure.

Wishful, I hope you haven't had any more worrying brown CM? Definitely take it easy if you can. I imagine it's not easy with another little one to look after.

Big hi to everyone else! Just a quick post from me today as I sneak in a teeny bit of Internet time. The birthday festival is going well.

Hi guys

I'm due in June after 3 cycles of IVF- so this isn't the BG for me but my personal messenger is playing up and I really wanted to say congratulations to three ladies from my old DOR and PGD buddy groups.  I hope you don't mind mellow.gif

BIG FAT HOORAYS AND ALL THE BEST to Indigo, Mum2OneDS and Wishful Thinking- I absolutely couldn't believe my eyes when I had a stalk of the old threads last night.  I tried to PM each of you but to no avail and couldn't walk away without offering my most sincere fist pumps and happy dance waddles. biggrin.gif

Indigo I hope you enjoy switching up from one end of the Terrace to the other- my twins are also being delivered by a very popular female obs...we must have the same taste in medical practitioners cool.gif

Okay I'll take my big tummy and scram now- good luck to everyone with their upcoming nuchals and so on!

xxxx

Hi Siohan1980, thank you so much original.gif! Congratulations to you too! I remember we pm each other before. Not long now to June. You are always welcome, we are all on the same road. original.gif

How's everybody feeling? I seem to have a bit of right side headache  since yesterday...very mild but I hardly get headaches. Tried to sleep it off but even when I feel tired, I cannot fall asleep at bed-time. I really dont like struggling to fall asleep. Was telling DS how lucky he is being able to zonk out once his head hit the sack. I also experienced some prickly cramps yesterday late arvo and at night...like there was a little cactus in my womb  biggrin.gif

Do you girls still drop hair at this stage? I thought pregnant women dont drop hair (I remember not when I was pregnant with DS though not sure when that started) but I still am having hair fall out as per normal days.

When are you ladies seeing your OB for the first time? I think mine is end of this month.

Tomorrow I will be 8 weeks.

Thanks Siobhan1980 and good luck for the arrival of your twins in June. You'll definitely have your hands full!

Mum2one, I am getting headaches at the moment too but the main thing I can't get over is the tiredness. I can't remember when/if that stops. I am still having hair fall too, same as normal. It does stop falling out at some stage but again, can't remember. Think My brain has already become mushy preggo brain!
I have my ob appt Monday week, I'll be 9 weeks exactly. Congrats on crossing the 8 wk mark.

Hi to everyone else.

Wishful.
