    Well done, shell. I had a steaky beak at it. What a bargain! It really looks sturdy, and I love the colour!

    Tam, your av is stunning! And as someone who has met her, I can tell the rest of you girls, it ain't far off the real thing!

    DH, DS and I just spent the evening setting up all the nursery furniture. Most were flat packed, so we had a lot of assembling to do. But it all looks great so once I've dressed the cot and cradle, and my glider chair comes in, I'll take piccies for the little'un's website.

    Also got the capsule fitted today while I was having the car serviced. Now to pack the hospital bags.... yes, I still haven't done that! Lol!

    love

    Ok, I got it right from the nurse today:
    1661 is Oestrogen
    28 is progesterone
    73 is hcg
    I'm not really sure on my days, (blast transfer on 10/2, help may be required) but the nurse said it was ok.
    Repeat test is next Wednesday, so until I see that it's not quite sinking in (& especially with such a low P4). We'll see, I'm doing my 8 pessaries a day now so as long as that holds off any bleeding my fingers are crossed.

    Thanks

    I just looked back on the hcg levels discussion at the beginning of the month & I think mine look low (unless late implanter, that's what my EP did in October) And the nurse said it was ok. I'm a bit confused.
    And it's another week for testing. That's a bit long too isn't it?

    Hi there!

    I know ages ago I made a promise that I wouldn't read about potential problems on the internet....famous last words. Now with my 12 week u/s fast approaching I'm getting worried that a. one of the twins won't be there, and b. incompetent cervix ](*,) I don't really know why the latter one's bothering me, I have no reason to suspect it. Too much time on my hands...

    I haven't had any spotting, no cramps etc... so why on earth do I feel the need to torture myself? I even felt a movement this morning - felt like they were turning a half somersault, was pretty cool. And I'm already sticking out, and I've got porno boobs (this is pretty something given they used to be too small to fit comfortably in a bra, could've used a band-aid to hold them up

    Ok...enough of my weird dramas.

    Hope everyone's well. Congrats again to Tam, that's excellent news sweet.

    Hello Girls,

    Sorry I have been so slack and not keeping up... but it is unbelievable where the time in the day goes.

    I guess if I was just breastfeeding rather than expressing 1/2 hr, then feeding, then playing, then washing bottles, and then getting Munchy to sleep so I can express and basically do it all again, I would probably have more time, LOL!!

    All is well with us, Munchy is a big boy, so we started some rice cereal and banana, apple and pear a bit early, but he is anticipating, mouth opening and not spitting a drop out, so I guess he is ready.... With the rice cereal at night we are at least getting 3-4 hrs between feeds rather than every 2 hours. So things are looking up!

    I have finally posted some new piccies on the website.... sorry it has taken so long.

    I apologise that I have not caught up with your posts to see how you are all going, but my thoughts are with you, and I hope that you are all going reall well - mustn't be too long to go for many of you!! Nice to also see some new names!!

    Take care, and I look forward to reading about all your good newses (too much time with the Munchy, gooo, gaahh, baaah....)

    Hi Girls,

    I just found out about our last Friday, my first ever after 4 years TTC, we are SO excited but also not trying to get too delirious until we see that little heart beat in a couple of week's time. Sigh, so much for patient-rose!

    Tam, my beta was 180 on 17dpo but I have read that it's not so much the level that is the issue it's how quickly it is increasing, so if your nurse says it's fine I think it should be. I still can't believe I'm pg and every time I go to the loo I still expect to see dear old AF there. I can't wait to find out if I have one or two in there! At first I thought I might have two because 180 seemed like a big beta but then I read Digde's was 988 on 15dpo, well maybe not!. Who know's I'll just have to wait. sigh ](*,)

    Congratulations Tam and Rose! Wonderful news from both of you and so good to have you with us.

    Tam - my beta was 75 I remember so hoping that yours will show similar signs of improvement at the next test ... yes a week does seem a long time between drinks really. Is it possible for them to squeeze you in a bit sooner? And I just have to say that I love the avatar.

    Gab- So glad to hear it is all going well with you and Munchy. Can't believe he is two months old!

    Sush - the nursery sounds great ... you are very organised. Don't worry, my hospital bag is only half packed too. I'll be finishing it off this weekend.

    Shell - hope these last couple of work weeks fly quickly for you. Not long for us now ...

    Didge - what's life without something to worry about? That's what I keep telling myself anyway. I guess we may as well get used to it because apparently, once they are born, you NEVER stop worrying!

    Trish - yes the avatars are beautiful aren't they ... they never have bad hair days and they always look so serene. Love your website by the way ... the baby's pictures look great.

    Well I finished work today .... (pause for exhalation). Now I can just rest and put a few finishing touches on the cleaning around here. Was feeling a bit nervous a couple of weeks back as I've been getting Braxton Hicks for a while now and was concerned that this meant possibly imminent labour, maybe even before I finished work. Fortunately that hasn't happened. I really wanted this time to myself.

    Guess this means I'll be on BB a bit more so can catch up on all the happenings for once. Should be an exciting few weeks coming up.

    Hoping Amy is going okay. Yes, Sush, I remember her saying something about being induced but for some reason I was thinking it would be closer to her due date. Cailin is also due soon. She is having Kelly attend the birth ... can't wait to hear how it all goes.

    Love to all,

    Mel

    Hello Everyone

    Sorry to have been MIA, but so wonderful to see so many new names in here now - so great to see the ranks filling up again!

    No news from me either. Went down to Invercargill for a second opinion from the ob down there and he is happy for me to go until 40 weeks and if no luck on our own then we will have to head to the hospital there to be induced. He doesn't necessarily think baby is too big so that was a relief. Damn scan...! They're just there to play with our minds again!!

    Am at home and computerless but trying to rectify the problem so I can get on here a bit more often.

    Take care all

    Back soon

    Hello all,

    Amy, glad to see you're still around, though really not long to go for you. I hope you get your homebirth, hunny.

    Mel, yay on finishing work! I am starting to get used to being home now. I'm sure you'll setlle right in and enjoy the calm before the storm.

    Welcome Rose and Tam! Hello everyone else!

    Well, I saw Dr on Thurs and he did a mini scan coz my fundal height hadn't changed from 3 weeks previously and baby hadn't completely engaged. But the good news is that not only is baby happy as larry, it's size is still quite advanced for where I'm at, and there's still heaps of amniotic fluid. I was worried, of course, but Dr reassured me that fundal height is only a guide, and from what he saw on the u/s, bub is still a 'whopper'! Lol! He did agree that my tummy had changed shape though, and that could be what is affecting the fundal height.

    So I see Dr again in 2 weeks and then it's weekly from there.

    Our antenatal class is next Sat, then it's my pre-admission appt and then it's all about waiting...

    love

    Hi all,

    just wanted to post in this (very quiet) thread that I've just put a new belly shot on bubby's website, plus a couple of preliminary pics of the nursery as I'm setting it up! I don't think my belly grown much actually, just gotten firmer and lower slung.

    And the nursery still has some way to go yet!

    Also had to shoo my bl**dy cat out of the cradle a couple of days ago. Lucky I hadn't dressed the cradle or taken the plastic off the mattress, but must keep the door closed all the time now until I can figure out a way to keep it a cat free zone!

    love

    Hi All

    Hope Everyone is going along brilliantly!!!

    I am doing really well, pretty tired and sick of work but other than that all is good.

    Sushee- What a gorgeous belly you have!!!!!!!!!!!!! not to mention the nursery, it looks fantastic. I'm so glad your appt went well.....Not long to go now. It seems like just yesterday that you were posting the BFP news on the other site.

    Sheree - How are you going? Haven't got my msn up and running again yet but will do it soon.

    Everyone else - Hope to get to know you all better really soon.

    Love

    Alicia
