    Hi Satya. You are most welcome and congratulations on your pregnancy. Hope all is wonderful at your scan today. It must be very stressful for you - but you're already almost 12 weeks, which is great.



    I know what you mean about the 10-point turn in bed Kimbe - it takes a fair bit of effort (and grunting to be honest) to shift positions. And i need to do it so often too cause everything's uncomfortable after a while. It's not great for DH either, and now with the body pillow there's even less room for him in bed.

    Hope the week goes quickly for everyone
    bye

    Nothing ever goes straight forward for me where medical things are concerned and yet again its happened again. On my way to the scan I got a call to say the Dr had been delayed at the hospital birthing twins -call back at 3pm. I just got back to work and got a call to say come back he's on his way here now. I walk in the front door, he walks in the back one and says to me sorry but I have to go back to the hospital. My scan is now booked for Friday.

    Hi Satya and welcome to the gang!!!! I have tried for this little one for 10years and 1month before any success at all so I know a little of what you must be feeling. Hope you get to friday quickly so you can get your good news and relax a little. It must be very stressful for you. Not long now though, and you will have the best chrismas news ever!
    hehe, I agree with the grunting Marcellus, that is me for sure. Sometimes I am so tired that I wake up after 3 hours of sleeping in one position and that is even harder to move then cause I'm all sore too. Poor Dh sleeping with a beached whale and a concoction of pillows, me sweating and pulling at the sheets, him lying on the very edge of the bed trying to get the covers back on hehe. He doesnt complain though, just as well!
    Had my GP today and have to go for a scan tomorrow in Adelaide as Im measuring 40weeks (at 37) but not yet engaged and they want to see why so big and if it is really head down? hope I dont have to get a c-section cause it is bum down and ready to go? Will wait and see, nothing much I can do. Maybe spend a bit of time on the gymball, rolling my hips to see if I can get it to go down?
    We have our last antenatal class tonight and it will be a big one with all the baby care stuff and breastfeeding ppl coming so that should be interesting. Looking forward to feeling totally prepared.
    Cheers all, hope its not too hot for you.

    Damn Satya! I know it's probably pointless to say this, but try not to stress too much for the next two days...

    Oh Sazz, that sounds just like DH and me... Getting on the ball sounds like a good idea. According to my pg yoga book, squatting and hands-and-knees positions are good for encouraging anterior, head-down positioning of baby in the pelvis. (just in case you hadn't been told that a half-dozen times already.)

    Thanks for the warm welcome ladies. Sorry for being such a drama queen today, but it's been a bad day today.... so many tears shed.... wish I could control those damn hormones.

    It's ok Satya, you don't need to apologise.

    Sazz, please let us know how your scan goes... could be a chrissy baby!

    Welcome Satya and congrat's - good luck tomorrow, hope Dr makes you feel like the only woman in the world given the extra wait time - both for you long term and after the other day's stuff around.

    Sazz, wow on the 3week progress...you got a little champion grower in there (cause it's not like they could get IVF EDD's wrong!) Hope all goes well and that the ball rockin gets bubba turning for you.

    Oh gosh Traceylee...didn't even know about the warm milk issue - have been having warm hot choc's on milk often to avoid coffee, maybe i should revert to smoothies and milkshakes.

    Well for me, it's only 1 day left of work before holiday's - and yippy, i've finished the Chrissy shopping so no more squishing through isles!

    Sleep well ladies (as best you can!)

    Hi gang,
    Scan went well, even though we had to drive 130km then wait an hour to get it done, wait half hour for films and drive 130km home again.....
    Bubs was head down all along, just the GP being cautious. Reason he/she isnt engaged is probably cause he/she plans on being there for another 3 weeks yet as the size is only 2.6kg/ 5lb12oz!!! Liquor volume is completely normal so I dont know how he is getting these big measurements as I have only put on around 8kg... maybe he measures everyone bigger??? Anyhow, I am feeling a lot better about it all and am happy for bubs to stay on the boiler for another few weeks yet. Another good thing, the head circumference is only 32.6cm Happy about that too.
    After the scan we went to the shops cause we thought we better get some 0000clothes (only got things a bit bigger as that is what we were expecting) and what a nightmare! Final late night trading before christmas isnt a good idea when enormous, grumpy and really sore from all the prodding.Wowsers, that radiographer was a meany with all that pushing and poking, I am sooooo sore now.
    Off to laze on the lounge and think of my lovely little bub.

    Sazz - glad the scan went well. Sounds like it was an epic journey.

    Kimbe - I didn't know about warm milk either. I've been reading up heaps and nowhere have I come across that one.

    I live in Melbourne and just after the huge storm that went through the South East yesterday afternoon I got drenched by the hugest puddle whilst waiting for my DF to pick me up. We only took one car to work as we had a family gathering to get to but because of the storm the traffic was the worst I've ever seen. Some idiot deliberately drove through the puddle at fast speed (he was going in the opposite direction to where all the rest of the traffic was going therefore able to speed and soaked me. I had mud and grit from head to toe. There were tears. I'd just got over that and moved on a little and I got struck by another smaller puddle. I laughed that one off. We then had to go home (weren't planning on it) so I could shower and change. We arrived at the dinner to find they'd already eaten and we just got leftovers.

    In the middle of all this drama I got the worst pain in my nipples. They were just so sore. I've noticed over the last couple of weeks if I get cold they get sore but this was excruciating. Oh well, I guess that's just the hormones, so I guess it's a good sign. It only lasted about 10 minutes til I warmed up again.

    Anyway, today is another day, and it's going to be a better one today. The scan is at 11 and I can't wait. I'm really looking forward to seeing bub.

    Hello to everyone else. I hope you all have a great weekend.

    Had the scan. Looks like I'll have to have an amnio, but I kinda expected that anyway at my age. The NT measurement was "a little high". I wont know til I get the results on Thursday. Damn Xmas, otherwise I would know on Monday. Got a great DVD for $20 with great footage of bubs and a fantastic 4D photo as well that was thrown in for free.

    Hi y'all! I'm still around, but have been laying low due to the sillyness of the silly season. I hope you're all happy and well. I have a LOT of catching up to do, and probably won't get a chance to do so until after Chrissy, but just wanted to say all's well with me, and MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone. I hope you get spoilt rotten!

    Belly rubs to you all!

    XO

    Hi everyone,

    Can I also please join your post? I am almost 7 weeks pregnant after IVF/ICSI and don't know who to talk to. It has been 2 years of trying before we were sent for testing, and finally IVF. This will be our second child, our first concieved naturally with no problems. I have had a few scares, spotting, but my ultrasound the other day showed a heart beat and everything where it should be, so I am over the moon. Just trying to relax over christmas and not do too much at all!!!!

    Congratulations on everyone elses pregnancies also. I look forward to keeping in touch with you all and your progress.

    Kel x

    Hi Kenziesmum. Big congrats to you. What a great christmas pressie.

    I was hoping to log on here and read some great 'sleeping tips' from you all. But no, it sounds like a good night sleep is evading us all I had a good laugh at the 10point turn. That's me too! I have told DH that if i don't get a good night sleep soon - i'm cancelling christmas. My parents arrived last night for 2 weeks and the rest of the family get here tomorrow. At least i have finished work until the 7th - and i will probably drop back to part-time sometime though January once i have caught everything up. I am very lucky - I know!

    Marcellus - nice one DH! You're the buggy now! These kiwi blokes need some training don't they. Mine had the [email protected] to say he had some lower back pain too the other day. Then he told his grandma we were having a dream pregnancy! (Oh, are WE!)

    Sazz - thinking of you, and i hope you take it easy this festive season! Can't wait to hear a BA from your way soon

    I guess it will be a bit quiet here for a while - I hope you all have a great christmas!

    Welcome Kenziesmum. Congratulations. I bet that scan was the best Xmas present you've ever had. I too had a couple of scares earlier on which ended up with me taking 7 days off work over a two week period. It turned out to be nothing, but it sure put me behind at work, I'm still trying to catch up.

    Lenny - I obviously haven't got to that uncomfortable stage yet, but I've always found that if I'm having trouble sleeping counting backwards from 100 in my head helps. Sometimes you have to do it two or three times but it works well for me. Hope it works when I get more advanced.

    Hi girls, I am back..... Byron was great, so what we needed before the baby.

    welcome to Satia and Kenziesmum, wishing you both stress free pregnancies....lots of hugs and belly rubs to you both.

    just finished reading all the posts, it looks like everyone is doing well, apart from a little sleep depravation, and tears caused by hormonal changes.
    I am so far doing well, had two more episodes of a tinge of blood in discharge not sure is that is part of the mucus plug but all seems ok. Baby finds it really comfy under my ribs and that is causing a pit of pain.....My due date is 12th of Feb so not long to go.

    Talk soon girls.

    Hi Kenziesmum and welcome to you!!
    Welcome home Ltlpanda, glad the break was just what you needed.
    We survived the other half of our chrismas family do yesterday which wasnt as bad as expected except I was a little underwhelmed by the reaction of the family we havent seen for 6months. Not one of them said anything about my enormous belly, be it good or bad, etc. The lovely thing though was that most bought a pressie for our baby this year as well as the other kids. That was very sweet. One interesting thing: we had our scan the other day and were telling them all that bubs wont be a big one etc and MIL went into her 20min talk on the exact size etc of all the kids. Blah, blah, blah except for "XX who was a whopper (she was the biggest at only 7lb3oz!) who ripped me to shredds!" Not what anyone there including the children want to hear about her vag I can tell you lol. And not what you say to someone about to have their first child!!! Very icky.
    Enough about me. hope everyone has a lovely chrissy day. We are staying home alone so I may even pop on here but most of you will be busy for the next few days I guess... have a good one!

    Merry Christmas everyone - and welcome Kz'sMum, congrats on such great news, it sounds like the news has been long awaited.

    Ltl Panda - Glad to hear the hol's were good.

    Well, the school hol's have begun for me and i'm happy as. Yesterday was a little food shopping for Chrissy then sitting back reading the paper and my current book, over a light lunch. Today, decided to do bubby washing and after separating colours,it was 2 white washes, then a yellow, then a green and then a pink/purple/blue/red combo. All bubba's things are ready for snuggling! It's amazing how many little things fit in the machine, I mean, it covered all the muslin wraps, blankets, sheet sets, a godzillion singlets and coveralls and everything else, I couldn't believe it, but gosh it was fun. I didn't even mind the walk up and down the steps from the line to the nursery and then back to the washing machine each time.
    And yep, I know it's a little early, but i figured better to get it done whilst i'm feeling good and pumped rather than when i'm too exhausted by the peak of summer. Anyway, in between washes it was another day of lazing in the sun with the papers and my book, a light lunch, yummy nana smoothie, and lots of naughty little snacks. I am loving Christmas already!

    Girls (and DH's and unborns!) have a great Christmas however you all celebrate it, hope it's full of laughs (and is also as relaxing as it can be for you all). Speak to you post Chrissy, am looking forward to hearing all the family and MIL stories!!! LOL.
