Hi girls

 

Sorry, I have been missing for a couple of days as our internet connection has been playing up.

 

I'm pretty well, generally, just mild nausea that is mostly improved as long as I eat, and I'm really, really tired all the time. Nothing too strange.

 

I am about to take my girlfriend to the acupuncturist as she is starting the induction process. She doesn't expect anything to happen today, but I told her I would prefer it if she wasn't on her own, just in case. She's 38.5 weeks and can't go over as she's trying for a VBAC.

 

It's so beautiful and sunny in Melb today, I can't do any work and would love to just sit outside.

 

Have a great day everyone.

 

Julia

Hi girls, I'm still around as well, just fence sitting as I do so I haven't really had anything interesting to report.

 

I hope everyone is well, there seem to be more pregnant mums now than those of us fence sitting LOL.

Hello girls

Thought I'd come in here and do you the honours of sharing my 500th post YAY!!! Only took me over 2 years pffftt!! :p

 

Still here, still sick but eating lots, snacking every hour or two, constanly have yucky 'sloshy' tummy but its ok if I keep eating, if I stop eating I feel very nauseous!! On maxolon 3 times a day until about 12 weeks hopefully then I can go off it. Very tired but also not sleeping well, but I get to see my OB next Mon at 9 am!!!

So will find out then when I can get my 1st scan (around the middle of November) and then if all is okay I will tell parents, in-laws, relatives eeekk!!

Gee cant wait for their responses!!

 

Better go, hope all of you are well!

Take care

Hi girls,

 

Lara hopefully you will be joining the BFP club earlier than later. Good luck and keep us posted. How exciting to be actually at the stage of TTC. That in itself make me want to try for #4 LOL.

 

Kylie I didn't even take any notice of the # of posts ticker until you mentioned it and I found it, I must talk a lot because I haven't been around for that long and mine was up to 160 something I think LOL. All sounds like it's going well with you, my doctor always said he loves it when women tell him how sick they were, it's a good sign. I only have girls, but had shocking m/s with each one, did you have m/s with your boys as well?

 

I've been busy with family down from Brisbane and just the general raising 3 young girls and dh, looking after the house, kinder, swimming lessons, mothers group, working p/t, catching up with friends when we can. Nothing out of sorts. I'm still not taking any contraception, but haven't got my period back and Annelise is nearly 7 months old. How silly is this, I bought a large pack of HPTs on ebay and I've been taking a test every week or so (I bought 100 LOL) and part of me is hoping to see 2 lines come up then that way the decision has been taken out of my hands and I could tell people "we weren't trying really, it just happened, but we are happy none the less", that sounds really silly doesn't it.

 

How is everyone else going, this thread has really died off at the moment, I think everyone got scared LOL.

Hi everyone. I'm back :blush: This last week I've been very strongly back on the #4 bandwagon. So, where to go with this desire, why here of course. :) We have sorted out our move very definitely over the last 2 weeks after quite a while of thinking about making decisions. We've purchased a block of land, found a builder, found a rental for the next 6 months or so, my dh has a new job and the two older kids have got into kinder (there was a waiting list for both). Yay! Yay! Yay! However we will have to move in with my parents for the first 3 weeks of December and then move into the rental on Dec 23rd!

Maybe now that everyone else is sorted out I'm back to thinking about me and thus the desire for #4 has come back. I feel like I could survive the ms, the putting on weight (which I hate, especially as I've just got my body back as I like it) the first 6 months of babyworld; whereas in the past that has been the downside for me.

Now I just have to work on dh.

So I have been lurking a little and so pleased to see all the bfp's, and Rach I'm sure you and I could compete in the number of splinters competition. lol

KristyMum-

Crikey Natalie when I read 'fall' I thought you'd fallen as in stacked it and I thought hey when did I miss reading that post and hoped you were ok then I realised what you meant... derr me... :)

 

Ooh Lara... you might be ne-ext! :)

 

Heya Rach... no, not scared off, just flat out atm - Open Day preparations, sewing, gymnastics, school, house etc etc etc (you all know how it goes!)

 

HoneyBlonde - strange but you know what I found stopped that funny tummy feeling? (I think it was just empty tummy coz I never had m/s as such) was mint - as in Mentos, or Arnotts Mint Choc biscuits etc... worth a go! :)

 

Jane - well you never know... things seem to happen in this thread! :) Funny thing was I contemplated going a la naturele tonight and thought... 'nah'... so is that a not good sign?

 

I think once UNI is out of the way (wheres a vomit smiley when you need one! ;p ) that might be a good thing. I SO don't want to go back next year... really hoping DP new business takes off coz it might be the excuse I'm looking for not to go back... but I know I have to and I only have a year and a half left, so I know, get it out of the way... but I've got 2 hideous compulsory subjects (year-long ones) and UNI is so not family friendly... anyhoo... blah blah... yeck. About sums it all up for me!

 

How's everyone else? And are all the BFP ladies well and doing good? Whispers to all the bellies... :)

 

Big grins and dumb yabbering...

Hi girls, glad to see everyone coming back, I was really missing all the chatter that goes on in here!!! My MS has dropped right off, hooray, and now just bites me when I get hungry. My nuchal scan came back with fantastic results which pleased me no end. I was at my booking-in appointment at the hospital the other day and had left the kids at home with their grandma. While I was waiting the ante-natal classes were going on in another part of the room, the topic was birth - the midwife (and entire class) looked at me and said, you might not want to listen to this just yet!!! "Oh, I said, it's OK this is my fourth", well you should have seen the jaws drop!!! I felt like saying "would you like some idea of what it's really like???" I could have PMSL but just smirked to myself instead. Anyhow, off for a night away with DH, first night away from my DD who is 17 months old!! Oh well, at least I can't get pregnant!!

hugs for all and sympathies to all suffering with MS...

Hi girls

 

Great to see everyone back.

 

Jane great to hear that you have everything sorted. Lol that you're back on the fence!

 

Stella PMSL at the antenatal class. Wouldn't you love to give them just a little idea?!

 

Lara any news?

 

Kristy I know what you mean about uni. Our original plans included me going back for 1st semester next year, and although it would have been the sensible thing to do, I am so rapt that I don't have to. With being due in June, I really couldn't even if I wanted to and I am so looking forward to some time off. I am going to finish the last few subjects really slowly.

 

As for me, just really tired and mushy brained. I could sleep 23 out of 24 hours.

 

I am babysitting my adorable 21.5mth old nephew. He has always been the one baby to really trigger my cluckiness and DH just loves him too. What a darling! I am really glad we did this as I have been feeling a big anxious about things and kind of thinking - what have I done? I think this is just hormonal, but really upsetting as you all know how much I wanted #4. I think it might be because we did this one deliberately whereas all the others were accidents, so we didn't really have to take "responsibility" IYKWIM. I suppose I'll feel happier when we have told people and (hopefully) had some positive reactions.

 

I can tell I won't be out of bed for much longer so...

 

GOODNIGHT!

 

Julia

KristyMum-

Oh Julia - don't tell me that!

I've decided that UNI can evolve into the modern world and work around me for a change instead of me bending over backward for them. Most of the lecturers allow their lectures to be available online (so I can listen at night when everyone's in bed)

BUT

there are a few stubborn ones who say oh technology is too hard (really the media mob set it up, all the lect has to do is press ONE button... *sigh*)

BUT all the students HAVE to have access to email and to be able to access online materials, exam results etc etc so heck if it's good enough for us then they can bloomin well get with it. It's supposed to be the 'top' UNI in WA... well get into the year 2000 then - for goodness sake, workplaces have had to adjust (most of them anyway)... I dribble once more...

 

Stella I would have enjoyed being a fly on the wall for that one re the classes... :) We even were at a class for previously pregnant people ie who already had children and when we said this is our third child people went quiet...

 

anyway, DP has gone into a baking frenzy this afternoon - Date and chocolate pecan pudding, chocolate something cake, made apple and pear for DS2 this morning and froze extra for the next few breakfasts, did the grocery shopping and layby'd DS1 birthday present, did some dishes etc and took all three little people this morning so I could have a sleep in... don't you like days when it all 'comes together'... :) better than when you have to do the lot yourself.

DD is up there now chopping pecans and dates w her Daddy... :)

 

right. now that all you pregnant ladies are either drooling or hurling, I had better get something done. :) will come back later and finish saying hello's...

Hi everyone

I am absolutely doing my head in at the moment. I am one of those people who is a bit of a perfectionist in life, and as much as I try to relax and let life happen, I'm not very good at it. I like to plan!! So, re the fourth baby or not, I am really 'scared' about making the wrong decision. Sounds so silly when I type it, but it's how i really feel.

Worst case scenario if we have #4? I am absolutely exhausted and cranky all the time and we can never afford to do anything.

Worst case scenario if we don't have #4? There's a hole in my heart.

I just don't know how to find an answer I can go forward with. I also feel that I only have a window of about 6 months if I want to have another child ( a whole lot of reasons including age, time out of work force, sibing spacing etc. etc.)

Does anyone have any advice on how to reach some sort of resolution? I'm really struggling with this.

Thanks in advance

Jane, hugs, hugs and more hugs. I know how hard this decision is as I am going through the same thing myself as we will be TTC in the next 6 months if we go ahead with #4. I keep telling people my heart says yes and my head is saying no, so who wins the heart or the head, I just don't know. How did you feel going from #2 - #3, I ask this because I had exactly the same doubts in my mind as I have now and I couldn't be happier with my 3rd little princess. I worried the whole time, how will I cope with 3, will my 2 girls miss out on things with another baby, can I spread myself around with another one. I too am a perfectionist and I am a big planner, I'm a control freak if you like, I like to know what the future holds and so on, so for me this is a huge factor that I hate not knowing where we are going with this decision. My dh and I are going out for dinner on Saturday night for our anniversary and we plan on sitting down and talking it out so hopefully come Sunday morning we may have a decision, but then I will get scared by the following week and wonder if we have made the right decision, will I always be tired and cranky. One minute I'm so positive about it, then all it takes is a bad day or someone to talk me out of it. I know we will never regret having #4. Jane I know I haven't been any help, I just wanted you to know you are not alone and hopefully some of the girls can help you more.

Quick update!

We have a heartbeat!! YAY!!

Saw my OB for first time yesterday and surprise he did a quick U/S to check on baby and there was my tiny 2 cm baby with a heartbeat and measuring as being due on 5th June (Im due 4th) so pretty close for dates!

 

So relieved that baby seems ok, was getting worried there as I am used to being soooo sick and cos I wasn't I thought maybe something was wrong! I am booked into the midwife-led care program where I have my own 'primary carer' midwife plus a team of 3 other midwives who get to know me in case my primary midwife is sick etc, she will see me for all my antenatal checkups and be there for me during labour and birth, then early release from hospital and then she comes to visit me every day for 5 days.

 

I am booked in for my 12 weeks scan on 21st November so hoping all goes well then.

Hope you are all having fun on the fence, I am still in shock but seeing that little 'blob' on screen yesterday helped it seem a bit more real, I couldnt believe there was actually something in my uterus!! LOL

Aaarrgghh! It's REAL!! I'm having baby number 4!!

 

Better go as typing makes me feel sicker!

Take care,
