    Welcome tt40!

    I had my Mw appointment today. When I laid down I thought I felt kicking but you don't want to be a wolly saying it too early but bam the cheeky monkey was kicking the probe off or trying to, hard to hear the heart beat for long as it was wriggling around but 155bpm. Another appointment for 4 weeks time after my morph scan how many more appointments do you think it's going to take for it all to sink in that this is happening? I still left today on a high "oh there really is something in there' crazy women


    Ladybug just realised you asked in the other thread and I didn't answer but nope not finding out the sex

    I am in such a similar state Tegam! We have so much going on I seem to have it in my head that the pregnancy is going to last forever. I feel like I'm still in my first trimester and just getting used to it all. I had the same feeling when about my MW hearing the baby's heartbeat- we really ARE having a baby! Like the massive belly, morning sickness and no period weren't enough?

    I feel exactly the same Tegam! I bet I get to 39 weeks and think ***** we're about to have a baby, better get organized!!
    I've been feeling lots of wriggles today!!

    I am almost 33 weeks, carrying around a ginormous belly and still need convincing it is all real some days lol.

    Yay for all the kicks and wriggles, such a great feeling.

    Hahha thank you ladies for reassuring me in not insane. Meow, ladybug, ozstar I have moments when I think I'll be like 'gee my tummy is sore today' and a kid will pop out 8) hoping some maternal shower will hit me soon! Oh and meow, I'm loving the no period, over the morning sickness and wish I could blame all this belly on the baby.... Hehe

    Welcome TT4, so happy to have you here! Congrats and looking forward to hearing how this pg and birth goes.

    Three mths yesterday since DD3 arrived and I still can hardly believe how her birth happened. Have my HB group get together tomorrow and our topic is waterbirth. Although I don't think that means the shower. Lol

    Ok....so i had to totally giggle at that But you did use water for pain relief! You can totally take that lol!

    TT40: CONGRATULATIONS!!!! So exciting to be planning a HB!

    Tegam: oh I reckon that I am the same...takes me ages to realise that there really is a little being growing inside of me. And I think that i have *forever* to organise the birth, the blessingway (so much so that i didnt get the blessingway at all!) I spend the vast majority of my pg thinking that it is such a long time away...and then BAM! I am 36 weeks and I have to wrap my head around the fact that a baby can pop out at any moment lol.

    Meow: urgh. morning sickness does suck...i reckon it is the numero uno reason why i would really really consider not going for another baby. that sounds awful doesnt it?! but it was just so rotten for way too long....of course the disgusting fried meat smell coming from the "in and out" burger joint across the road didnt help any lol.

    SJ: Hope you are travelling well in your babymoon x

    Oz! tick tick! not long now!

    Quick one from me... My blood test came back all clear for hep A already! So no need to think about it and the possibility of having to find an unlicensed MW to free birth anymore. Yay!
