Lots to read now we are combined!! I havent experienced any leakage but Oh my gosh has my sex drive gone crazy
My poor partner - LOL - I am sure a month ago he never thought he would complain about me needing it too much.
Anyway I am telling him to make me happy and store up these sessions cause when our little boy arrives I will be too tired and a milk machine.
Hope everyone is enjoying this time

First I’d like to thank all of you for your honest and frank conversations about pregnancy. I am the first from my family and friends to have a baby and apart from some lovely well meaning woman at work, that are the same age (and older) as Mum, I really have no one to discuss these things with. So thank you!I know pregnancy hasn't changed in 30 years but technologies have and often my colleagues can’t remember little things such as leaking breasts. Lol!
Petalle- My DH (what does this stand for? Dad/Husband? Sorry I’m new to these abbreviations) also takes the same approach to the name search as well. I suggest names and he says nope! Then makes a rather silly suggestion which I strongly reject. I love Indianna for a girl, he’s suggests Inda? Inda?? What the hell is Inda? I state, do you mean India, he says, no just Inda. Then suggests names from the 1950's and 1960's such as Barbra. (Nothing against all the lovely Barbra's of the world)
red2012:Thanks for the recommendations for mamaway.com safe maternity underwire bras. I’m a massive underwire fan and was concerned that these are unsafe for breastfeeding and would have to resort with no underwire for the next 12 months. So thankyou for the advice.
want_to_be_a_mum: I’m so sorry your 20 week ultra sound experience was so bad. What an insensitive jerk. Where do you live? I live in Gippsland Victoria and traveled to Warragul for my 20 week scan. I was there for an hour or more. The sonographer was an amazing woman with 16 years’ experience. My scan was also bulk billed.... that's right FREE!!!! I did have to travel an hour to get there, but locally the scan would cost me $280. So I saved a small fortune.
Take care ladies
Lots of love Bec

I had post of the day once, until GQ took it away
sg- good advice to your hubby there, tends to be a feast or famine with pregnancy/breastfeeding
mcbabys mum- pregnancy has changed in 30 years, and not to mention people forget, even just between pregnancies how hard it can all be, so nice to have people to chat ti!
mumma to a-I'm in southern river! We'll have to organise a perth catch up at some point! I'm tempted to have one of those scnas to double check the gender, mostly cos I'm SO not sure I saw anything convincing, which place did you go to and how much was the scan. Hope baby is in a better mood for your next one so they can get all the measurements!
mks81-I've done plenty of public spewing, it sucks, but you get over it eventually. HOpe you are done falling over now, sounds very scary!
hopefully- I hope it was just a generic term, would suck if you were hoping for a surprise, but I find the not being sure even harder. She said she "thinks" boy but I didn't see anything convincing and "thinks" isn't very sure sounding, so we'll see.
AFM- very routine boring OB appt, just the way I like em. Back in a month for another. Am feeling SO much better altely, just the last week or so things seem to have settled so the spewing is less of an event, even did a few days in a row without spewing (tho my other 2 had gastro over the weekend, so broke that spell!) Have been getting heaps of headaches but am putting that down to life stress atm rather than pregnancy.
Hope everyone is feeling well.

Oo I love hearing about everyone's scans. It's getting exciting!
Question for you: I have no permanent doctor here (it changes every week or so, so every time I go it's someone different) and my midwife is next to useless. She called me to remind me to book my 20 week u/s when I was AT 20 weeks, knowing full well there's a two month waiting list for an u/s down south....
Anyway, I was wandering what comes next? Are there any other routine scans or tests that need doing, or am I just sitting and waiting for baby to arrive now? I'm assuming when I go down south (a month before my due date) that I'll have to find a doctor at the hospital, and midwives and such, but no one has told me anything, and everyone I ask seems as confused as I am!
I'm also wandering about classes and such. Breastfeeding ones, or labour ones.. I have NO idea really. But if I know what's available out there, I can book for the week I am down south, as I'm sure they have waiting lists too, and would rather not get there and be stuck in the apartment doing nothing for four weeks! Then get handed a baby at the end and told to go home! That's scary!
If anyone has any ideas, or things you've done previously, or anything it would be great. I'll be having bubs at Port Augusta Hospital, which I know no one else is, but it's only a few hours from Adelaide, so I can go there for classes and things if I feel like it.
