    Ive been quiet because Dh has been home and its all out war for the computer when he is.
    Yay congrats on 12wks Skye!!! We both have our NT scans on Monday, how exciting although Im not sure when I'll be able to update. I have to work in the arvo and then we're having a bqq that night. Im sure I can scrounge up some time to post pics.

    Feeling good except Im having problems with my arms and hands aching and swelling. Most days its mild to moderate but some days its a huge pain. Might make an appointment with my GP for Tuesday morning to see if we can find out whats wrong. Shouldnt be blood pressure, its always perfect :-k

    Carrie, WTG on the shoppin. I was just talkin to a friend yesterday who's nephew was born premmie & is now 7mths old too (3mths adjusted), he was 1pd6oz born at 24.5wks & is now 7pd11oz. :-)

    Melbo, wow u look so good in that pickie, i've not only put on my belly but everywhere else too, u only look to just have the belly. :-)
    William's bed looks so cute. I got my mobile (rabbits, to match in with looney tunes) at BabiesGalore, was $40, most were $30-40.

    Sush, it's funny the dreams we have huh & sometimes such wierd ones, crazy preggy hormones, LOL.

    Skye, we'll be waiting for the good news & pickies on Mon & what a cute lil tum u have now. :-)
    Anna, you too on ur scan. It's probably preggy related Carpal Tunnel, which can be caused by the swelling, blocking the nerve, I couldnt wear any rings from late 1st tri, just have to try to elevate hands when can. Hope ur doc says its nothing serious. It should all subside shortly after birth when all the fluid does.

    Trish, awesome, b4 u know it u'll be at 8-9mths.

    Well had my last day of work on Fri, so am now officially on leave. My supervisor asked if I'll be up for another wk, I politely declined.
    Got another pizza lunch, another pressie (beautiful baby scrapbooking album) & cakes in arvo, spoilt, hehe. Then wouldn't u know it, supervisor sprung us with some last min work 4:15pm in arvo to do with daylight savings. I was still tying up loose ends on a job that has to be handed onto someone else, so didnt get out until 6pm or so & still hadn't finished, so got to take my laptop home so I can get everything off it & someone else can drop it back at work on Mon.

    :shock: Isnt carpal tunnel bad??????????????
    I was thinking it could be my thyroid, I had similar issues to this around 2 years back which is why we decided to TTC as they thought it was the pill causing it. Quite obviously not that now
    Ugh I just know this pregnancy is going to drive me up the wall, I will get every complication known to man ](*,) Im already at high risk for eclampsia and GD.

    Anna, preggy related carpal tunnel generally disappears afterwards, so should be fine. Yeah my thyroid is swollen too & gets worse at night, so snore & have trouble breathin & keep wakin myself up, DH has resorted to the spare room so he can sleep, LOL. I had carpal tunnel b4 preggie though & had surgery on worst hand Dec04, got bout 75% relief from that, but then preggy makin worse again, but should go back to what it was b4 preggy, so dont be too concerned, unfortunately just another preggy symptom. :-) It just means u have swellin blockin the nerve, which runs thru the carpal tunnel (hole in wrist) which causes burning,swelling,numbness,pain,stiffness... My hypothyroidism is controlled with tablets though so thyroid swelling is just a preggy symptom too, along with my facial & feet swelling, no sign of pre-ecl, which is fantastic. I really hope u get the all clear & that it doesnt eventuate to anything, but yeah definitely discuss with ur doc. :-)

    Carpal Tunnel isn't too bad. What it is, in your hands you have fluids & it moves round alot when you're pregnant and you get swelling the fluid can't move round as much causing you to have sore wrists & tingling in your fingers. It can help to wear a wrist brace overnight or before gettting to that stage rest your hands on pillows so they are higher than your heart. It gets worse because you aren't moving your hands when you sleep - do you find it worse when you wake up in the morning? Also try to rotate your wrists keep them moving while you're up, it will hurt at first, but after a few mins of rotations you can really feel the difference. The good thing is that within a week of delivery (at least for me) it goes away. No consolation when you have it though.

    Hi everyone, I'm back from my holiday. I had a quick scan of old posts and looks like everyone is still here. Not long for you Mel - next month is going to be very exciting around here.

    Well, I'm well and truly buggered. Had a lovely 6 days up the north coast but we got the tail end of the Queensland storms so didn't get to swim much (lucky for the surrounding people - no-one needs to see my big white butt at the moment, but my belly is pretty sexy). DS loved it but has increased clinginess 10 fold and I'm starting to worry how he'll cope in 4.5 months. Back to day care dramas this week I guess. I'm looking forward to seeing my OB on Tuesday as it's been 2 months. I think I shall get him to check between the legs again - just to be sure

    Time is flying isn't it girls!!! I'm a bit like you Sush - this is my last pregnancy and I want to enjoy it and last forever. Once they're out they grow up so fast. I have 2 embies on ice and don't know what to do with them. We only ever wanted 2 children but I feel like these little ones are part of us and can't let go of them. What should I do?

    I did get some great news whilst away. I got a call from a competition I had entered to win an ultimate kids backyard - includes sandpit, swingset, trampolene, basketball ring, infaltable pool, cricket set, cubby house, supa soakers. YAY!!! Isaac will love me when I get it.

    I've got to go to bed so will check in again tomorrow.

    Geez Humph I could have typed that myself! We also have 2 on ice & don't know what to do. I thought this would be it for us but DH has said he couldn't possibly leave any behind. We will probably go ahead & have them put back in when this one is between 6-12 months old.
    My first thought was to donate them, but I am hesitant as they are embys not eggs, I am sure I'd spend the rest of my life eyeballing every child that walked past thinking they looked like us!

    Good luck in whatever you decide to do!
    What have others done/suggest we do?

    Hi Lovelies,

    Humphrey - It's good to see you back and I'm glad you had a nice break. Hope DS will settle into daycare a bit more as time goes by. He sounds like a little sweetie.

    Shell - congrats on finishing work! It's about time you could put your poor feet up or at least give them a nice long soaking in something fragrant. Well done! Now it's time to nest until the little one decides to arrive ...

    Anna - the carpal tunnel sounds painful. I had read something about it going away after pg (as the other girls have mentioned) so I hope that is the case for you. Hope you can get some relief for it in the meantime.

    Trish - You're making those milestones pretty quickly now. It won't be long till the boys are here! In answer to your question, yes, I'm accepting labour vibes (I also take Visa and Mastercard). I set up the satellite dish last weekend but all I could get was Swedish porn. Crikey!

    Thanks Carrie, Skye and Shell for your tips with the mobiles and where to find them. Skye, would love to look at a pic so feel free to email me and we can chat about it more if you like.

    Okay, time to have a shower and go fruit shopping. Hope everyone has a lovely Sunday.

    Mel

    Hi girls

    Good to see everyone is travelling along well in here, Melbo, Shell and Sush not long now ladies... no doubt you guys are getting excited but also a bit hesitant???

    Glad things are well with you too, Trish.... I hope the boys are being nice in your tummy and not giving you to much greif under the ribs and on the bladder....

    Hope you guys are still keeping that seat warm, hoping to maybe be in here by Christmas!!! With a few of you moving out soon, i think those that are left will need the company!!!

    love and hugs

    leis xx

    Thought I'd pop in to let you know that I've seen Sushee do her waddle, and that is definately what it is, lol.
    Lovely tum too.

    But we know it's all worth it!

    Take care.

    Hi Girls and a special hello to Keen and Tam =)

    This is just a quickie by necessity. Don't be concerned if you don't see me post for a few days or maybe more. Hayseed will definitely let you know what's going on with me. The thing is, our computer is on the fritz. DH tried to upgrade some components and it all went horribly wrong. Sometimes, the computer will allow us to use it in Safe mode but sometimes not. He's reading and re-reading his manuals and trying to fix it so I hope he manages to do that in the next few days.

    Take care girls.

    Mel

    Tam,

    But you were so nice about my waddle at the time! Lol! But at least you can confirm for the girls here that the butterflie-d belly is really me!

    Keen, how exciting that you're started your FET cycle. AF seems to have taken forever for you. I am expecting you, Leis, Tam et all to come over very shortly, as Mel, Shell and I don't have very long to go now. Plus Shazz isn't far behind us either!

    Shell, you are a trooper with work. I have very much settled into being at home now. Can't imagine having gone on for as long as you have.

    Trish, OMG 15 weeks. that went so fast! I too saw Kelly W's belly pic in the April Belly Buddies thread, absolutely amazing! It'll be you soon!

    Justine, sounds like you need a rest from your holiday! Lol! As for the two embies on ice, well you know I'm going back for the one I have left. I can't imagine being a mum of five either, but if it happens, we will be so blessed! The rest will have to take care of itself!

    As for mobiles, I got a Tiny Love Symphony in Motion, which was $99 on sale, but now I'm thinking I should have gotten one that matched with my decor too. Though I seriously doubt bub would notice that stuff didn't match!

    Last bit of news, I was getting BHs from 4pm yesterday afternoon to 4am this morning, 10 mins apart and increasing in intensity. I slept in between, but they were strong enough to wake me from sleep when they occurred. Finally at 4am, they eased and then completely stopped. If this pg is anything like Zaki's, this pattern will continue for a couple of weeks before becoming full blown labour, so I suspect maybe my days are numbered.

    But in the meantime, will start a watch for Shell too!

    Only 9 days until we meet Mel's little William!

    Only 16 days until we meet Shell's little Holly!

    OMG Mel, just realised you're in single digits now!

    love
    sushee
