Wow - what a big week it has been for scans!!!
Danielle - congrats on the news of having a boy!! How exciting!!!
Tam - ohhhh your first kick!! Isn't it just the best feeling!!
Ali - so nice to hear your scan went well. Good news
LittleBear - oh a girl!! Congratulations!!!
Renae - congrats to you too on having a boy!!!!
And you get to see your little cherub again next week. Good luck - I am sure it will all be fine!
Rhonda - love the new house!!! Very 'housewives' indeed! I am sure you will love it too. Sounds perfect. Congrats on your news about having a boy too!!
Kendall - Another boy!! Congrats to you too!!! Jake is a lovely name. Love your nursery too! I can't believe how organised you are. Looks great.
Ali - can you add me to the list.... having #3 at Birallee (Box Hill) in VIc - and we didn't find out the gender
4forme - I am not organised at all! LOL We will have to put the girls in to share as we only have 3 BR's for the moment. We are either extending or moving but won't be doing so for at least a year at this stage. So bubs will have a nice corner in our room for a while
Congrats on feeling your first kick!!! awwwwwww Still not sure when I am going to finish work. I am a nurse so it can be quite exhausting - but then I don't work full time anymore since having my cherubs and only work one shift a week - so could probably manage getting to 36 weeks?? We'll see!
DKD - we also have a short surname so long names are on our list. I really love Indiana (Indy) for a girl as it goes great with our daughter's names too. (Bella & Alex)
Angela - the maxi riders are great!! My eldest has one and I have also just bought her a tethered booster seat for our 4wd. The beauty is that you can use a h-harness AND a tethered booster seat! Perfect! I am a bit anal when it comes to carseats! LOL And yes, I was rather anxious prior to my scan today (more on that later). I think I went to the loo like 6 times before we left
I am sure your 2 little beans will be fine.
Motocyclemummy - congrats on feeling your fist kicks!!! YIPPEEEE
TaraNicole - oh yippeee for you too on having a little brother for Isaac!!
It will be great to have brothers close in age. My girls are just the best of friends!!!
Janxsprit / Kerry - oh what a scare it must have been for you guys. But I am so glad that everything is ok with your tater!! Congrats on having a boy!!
Sarah - in regards to capsules... I have used them both times with my girls and they were fantastic. I have heard that you shouldn't use cloth nappies folded with the pad in the center when using the capsules as it can affect their spine. So if going on a long car trip to use disposable nappies in the capsule. My MCH nurse gave me a pamphlet on this a few years back as we were using cloth. Other than that - I guess if it was a daily thing for hours then it wouldn't be good - but every now and then I am sure it would be fine.
hayley - welcome to the group and congratulations on your pregnancy!!
PHEW!!! man we have been a chatty group!!!
Oh and don't forget to start saving your huggies barcodes! Their latest promotion is great!!!
Ok , will start a new message about today's scan
Well our scan today went great!!
The girls were more excited than anyone I think and just loved seeing bub's feet moving about and bubs scratching the back of his head! (I say his and hers randomly!).
Everything seemed healthy and normal and the heart rate was 136bpm (could the rush of boys be causing this??). Funny as at the 12w scan the HR was over 160. I am only measuring 5 days ahead too... but who knows as our conception date is anyone's guess! LOL
We couldn't get a lot of good face images
as bubs was snuggled up into the placenta with her hands covering her face. It was so cute though!!!
I didn't find out the sex as I just LOVE the suprise at the birth - but DH did!!! He also found out with our first daughter but kept it nice and quiet. I didn't really want him to know but he has as much right to find out as I have NOT to! LOL
I do have some pics though and will let you know when I get a chance to post them at my blog.
Even though everything seems fine with bubs and we are delighted... I was very very teary today. I found myself escaping to the loo just so I could burst into tears. pah... hormones!
