Good morning wonderful ladies!
We're having babies this year - how exciting is that ::goofy grin::
I really should join the facebook group, I held off because the DIG I was in with DD has a FB group which started about the same time and I thought I'd get confused if I joined two at once, since there were some people in there who I'd not met before (it was for both DIGs from June 2009 so half the people I didn't know and I was sure I'd get confused). Who do I PM for an invite?
Kristie, I am in Sydney too and would be all over a meet up
good luck with camping - we were invited to go with my siblings and some friends over this weekend but Susannah has not been sleeping well with the heat and I am already struggling to roll over in bed
So we said we'd come next year instead.
HH123 - I thought I may have felt a flutter the other day as well, but it probably wasn't. I know what I'm waiting to feel this time so I should feel it earlier than last time. It was almost like a little buzz in my uterus, like really fast butterflies. Probably just my imagination at this stage
Last time I felt it at 18 weeks too which was earlier than I was expecting, so hopefully it will happen for me soon - I just love those flutters
Fran - OMG I have had unbelievable amounts of CM this pregnancy too! It was fairly normal with DD but this baby seems to have pushed my body into overdrive
It can be quite alarming, can't it! It freaks me out because that was how I lost my mucus plug with DD, it came out in bits over a few days and was never bloody, and this looks exactly the same
So sometimes I panic. But then I have to remind myself, "This happens to heaps of women... Nobody said it would be the same the second time around... You're fine etc etc etc". Why do we freak ourselves out over the most benign things?
Justine - did you make it to the end of the movie? Lol
Purplestone - I have been under the weather too, you poor thing. It sucks not being able to take the good drugs LOL! I hope you feel better soon. If you have anything like I did, it will be mostly over in about a week. I'm feeling 100x better than I was a few days back. Still a scratchy throat and lots of junk in my chest though
Lils - good luck with the OB and the scan
Those first few appointments are exciting! I have mine next Tuesday, I get to see my birthing centre, I can't wait! I am weirdly excited about giving birth this time
PJ - I've got a Birman
They are a lot like ragdolls. I think our next cat might be a ragdoll, if the time comes for us to acquire another
AFM - I'm on the mend. It was a rough virus, it knocked me about a bit but I've come out the other side. DD got it but only mildly, I think the BF might have something to do with that. She hasn't been sleeping well though, we've had a bit of a regression
she was a fabulous sleeper until she was five months old, and then we had eleven months of hell with her sleep (or, rather, her lack of it). That is the only thing that makes me nervous about having a second baby - the sleep deprivation. We have had her back on track for a few months now, but these last Few nights in the heat, the wheels have really fallen off. She has eczema and the heat irritates her, so it isn't her fault. I just cry for her, poor itchy little thing
we have an appointment with a paediatric allergist in February but that still seems so far away!
Here's hoping summer remains relatively cool in Syd, for her sake.
