    Notes: Fell pregnant for the third time in the year in 2007 when not TTCing after having been told our only hope was to use IVF. Wasn't on vitamins, was drinking way too much coffee & was stressed at the time. Didn't expect it to stick but it did. Trouble free pregnancy despite mums age (42 at time of birth). Gave birth at 37w4d.

    Baby's Stats: 3440 grams, 49cm long and HC 34cm
    Angel Babies: 30th October 2008
    Notes: After 5 years TTC, 4 using IVF we conceived both our miracles naturally. Suffered hyperemisis and spent a lot of time medicated and on a drip but at the end I had no idea what a beautiful experience it would be to naturally birth our perfect little miracle! I honestly didnt believe I would actually bring a baby home when I went to hospital That first look at those big chubby cheeks, squinty eyes and pouty little lips was simply amazing.

    Angel Babies: Noah Thomas stillborn @ 20w5d in 2006, 8w2d in 2007 and 5w2d in 2010
    Notes: Anelise's birth was basically perfect. I laboured at home for most of it. After I arrived at the hospital, Anelise was born an hour later. She was born into her daddy's arms and watched over by her older siblings. We had a totally natural delivery as well as delayed cord clamping. We went home 4 hrs after her birth and have been enjoying every second of our gorgeous little girl.

    Baby's Name: Jaycen John Russel
    Baby's DOB: 23/12/2008 (Was due 11/12/2008)
    Baby's Stats: 3.774kg (8Ib3oz), 51cm, 34cm
    Angel Babies: 7wk 4d January 2005, approx 8wk January 2006, Approx 6wk July 2006, Approx 3.5-4wk August 2007 - All prior to Jaycen being born.
    Notes: Difficult pregnancy with hip and back problems. Early cramping (apparently from Corpus Luteum) raised concerns of ectopic pregnancy, early scan ruled this out. Braxton Hicks pretended to be the real deal, coming every 5-9mins and lasting for 20-30sec from 15wks onwards, coming on every few weeks and sticking around for 6-12 hours at a time. Was induced at 41+3, and he was born at 41+5 via emergency c-section due to apparent Cephalo-Pelvic Disproportion, meaning that my pelvis was too small for his head to fit out of - which resulted in Jaycen becoming distressed and both of us becoming Tacchychardic after a total labour of 41h 31min from the moment contractions started. A vacuum extraction was attempted twice before the c-section was done.
    I also suffered from constant all day sickness (half nausea/half throwing up for every day) for 30 weeks out of the 41wk+5d of the pregnancy.

    Baby's Name: Elise Prudence Elizabeth
    Baby's DOB: 30th of March 2011 @ 40+2
    Baby's Stats: (e.g. birth weight, length, head circumference) 8pound (3.65kg), 52cm long, HC 34cm, apgars - 1min: 5, 5min - 10
    Angel Babies: 4wk 3d January 2010, 5wk 3d March 2010 (both between Jaycen and this bub) & 4 prior to Jaycen.
    Notes: ms started early (had it right from the start) and left around 18wks, came back again in the last 10 weeks.
    Several bouts of bleeding leading up to 13ks, numerous scans couldn't find the source.
    Constant BHs all throughou the pregnancy, resulting in several hospital visits, including one lot of real contractions around 21wks lasting for 6-7 hours and leaving me shaky ans sore for over a week which caused me to loose part of the plug.
    Diagnosed witg GD at 31wks, started insulin around 34wks.
    Had the membranes artifcially ruptured at 40+2 after 3.2wks of constant irregular contractions (pre-labour) and she was born 4hrs 43mins later in a successful VBAC delivery. he cord was wrapped once around her neck and she had made a 300 degree turn during labour to end up in the anterior position.

    Baby's Stats: 2790grms 46cms
    Angel Babies: 7weeks - August 2009, 13weeks October 2009
    Notes: I had a really big bleed at about 13weeks with Pearl - I was sure it was all over again but miraculously she was fine. Was in hossie for a week and on bed rest for another week. She was also breech and we were scheduled to have a c-sec at about 39weeks but she had other ideas and my waters broke at 37weeks so we ended up having an emergency c-sec. We are so lucky to have a happy and healthy little girl - if you are trying have had problems there is definantly light at the end of the tunnel.
