Hope everyone is well.

its been a while but just wanted to quickly drop in and say everything is going well, starting to show finally and we have a doctors appointment tomorrow. Cant wait for the 18 week scan which we will then be able to decide what to do re tests etc, this will ease my mind a lot.
Hope everyone is having a great time watching their bellies grow.

Dammit I always miss getting in 1st!!
Sorry no personals at the mo - just popping in with an update on Today's OB appt.
All is well, twins are fine, one is breech and one is cephalic (is that the right word/spelling) but of course that will probably change a million times before they are born. The Dr couldnt determine sexes yet he said the 19 week scan people have a much more awesome machine and they should be able to. I dont mind - its more DH that wants to know impatiently. Heartbeats are both around 140, which is apparently fine. And my BP is perfect! HOORAY!! I think one of the Placentas is anterior but not sure about the other - he didnt say. But that probably explains why I can feel one more than the other. They look like little people now, its awesome. Although I stupidly forgot to ask for printouts of them, but never mind, only 2 weeks to the 19week scan.
Anyway, enough of the me me me post, sorry about that, hope everyone is well!

Don't worry about me posts Trudy, I for one love hearing how the twinnies are going!
Glad to hear things are going well MissM. When is your 18 weeks scan? Must be coming up pretty soon!
No updates here, just procrastinating again

Oh, very exciting news! I did some shopping for my hospital bag today, oh I know but it was exciting for me LOL! I also bought a pair of Bonds navy blue footless tights, I figure they could be used for a girl or a boy, I am actually tempted to find out the gender now, it would make things so much easier in the buying department, especially as I have next to no NB clothes anymore, but at the same time, I really like NOT knowing.
Oh decisions, decisions!
What else? Nothing really happening, it's all very boring & ho hum here ATM.
I hope everyone is feeling ok, might BBL, depending on if I crash & burn once the kids go to bed, which seems to be happening a lot lately, early nights seem to be the way to go & it's lovely mind you. It particularly good when I wake to go to the toilet, I've been asleep for three hours & it's still only 11.30pm (I normally go to bed about midnight)!
Ahh it's the small things that make us happy PMSL!

Another me me me post I'm afraid.
Yippee we have finally found a car and as long as nothing else goes wrong we should be picking it up 2weeks on monday. Bit peeved though as DH has to work on Monday so have had to move our scan to Thursday so a few more days to wait to find out and see bubs again.
Is anyone else a worrier this pregnancy? I was fine with the first 2, but this time I'm forever thinking something is wrong, even to the point I'm worrying something maybe wrong at the scan. Really need to snap out of it, at the mo I'm worried cos I ain't felt anything for awhile, lots of cramps and pains but no movement. I really hope this next scan is going to put my mind at rest.
Hope everyone else is fine.

Is anyone else a worrier this pregnancy?
ohhh yes! it's my 1st and i'm always thinking what was thatt, should i do this or not and the list goes on i know i am eating healthy and getting a bit of exercise and i'm past the 1st trimester now so i should be ok.
MummyPig you can shop when ever you like!! dont worry about it Today i went to target for their sale and got myself 2 cot sheet sets, 3 pack of polar fleece blankies and a 4 pack of muslins for $50 and i was quite chuffed they were all 30% off! Had a quick browse at the clothes and have decided that i will buy only a few things as we aren't finding out the sex (even though i WANT TO!!) and buy some boy/girl things later or send my mum out when baby is born to buy blue or pinks
Kitty-N oh not long now til your 19 week scan, so i assume you are finding out the sex of the twinnies?

Is anyone else a worrier this pregnancy?
I am about BF, only because I had problems with DD3. I think I just got so uptight about everything back then and she was born a couple of days before Xmas and I couldn't relax.
I just felt like everyone was in my face. WARNING - first time mums advice coming - take it easy after the birth, don't push yourselves too much and put you and the baby first, especially if you are trying to establish BF.
I went to Target yesterday and got some unisex suits and one blue stripey navy bonds suit because it was so cute and 30% off, I figured a girl can wear navy, I'll just stick a pink hat on.

I had a scary night last night my bestie went into hospital at 33.5weeks with contractions every 10/11 mins....this is bubs DS3 so she knows what she is doing when it comes to labor and contraction pains. They sent her home this am and said she's 1cm dilated and still having good strong contractions and that he will be fine to come and it may take a few days. Well when I spoke to her last night she could just talk through the contractions but today not at all. Today they have been all over the place anywhere from 2mins to 15mins apart but strong. I hope her little man will be ok. They said he's strong and as all her bubs have IUGR inter uterine growth retardation he was going to be brought on at 36.5wks anyway as they grow better once they are out. It has worried me all night and today. poor thing. anyway I am good feeling big today but hey some days you do I guess. Kitty I am glad the twinies are doing well but what is cephalic?
Jax amiee and IWTBSB....I'm with you constantly worried but still loving it all just the same.
Missm I hope all goes well for your 18 wk scan keep us posted!!
mummypig I need to go shopping yay for school holidays is all I can say...I'm going to hit the shops big time!!!
My darling mum bought us a capsule yesterday it looks so cute sitting by my desk in my office...had to get it out the box!!!
ali I am with you bring on the twinies stories I would love to have a boy/girl set of twins but am so glad I have one beautiful little person 18wks cooked!!!
Posted 02 July 2009 - 08:40 PM
just a quick one as Im on my way out the door. I had a scan today and its a BOY yay. Now I can start buying stuff.

Have been missing in action the last week or so. The whole family has been sick and of course I have finally succumbed to it as well! Doesn't help that the ms fairy has been back this week as well
I think I have missed too much to do personals so will go back and read and then maybe post again tomorrow. Just wanted to say....
Congratulations mrsjt on the beautiful news!
Waves to everyone!

Congratulations MrsJT on your little boy - that is so exciting. I was thinking about it last night and I'm going to be impossible on the day of the scan - I just can't wait to find out.
I'm 17 weeks day. The last month or so seems to have gone so quickly. My cold is still hanging around and it's driving me nuts. Had a bad day yesterday and wasn't coping with anything. But have had a decent night's sleep so today is looking brighter.
Posted 03 July 2009 - 12:02 PM
Hey there folks
Avoiding work for a little bit here, so catching up.
Alibaba - know how you feel. How was the holiday?
IWTBSB - thank you. Just under a week to go.
Mich*mum2three - EOFY eek!! That reminds me I have 2 VERY disorganised clients who I will get a panicked phone call from. I don't do their bookwork but man, they make a mess of doing it themselves...
maren - good luck on the housing and getting the $$ right. I hope the little one settles soon to antipodean time.
mrsjt - excellent about having an obbie you feel comfortable with! And a boy - hooray!!
jax - ha ha at your hubby not being able to find you! Given his aural (and olfactory) cues he should have that much trouble!! Good luck on Thursday.
missm - hi there! Hoping all goes well next week for you.
kittyn - I too am someone ignorant of cephalic, but I hope that they dance nicely to avoid the final breech.
MummyPig - you sound like you are having fun shopping!! Any baby looks good in navy - I am a big one for not colour coding children and used to get in trouble for not pinkifying my girl according to the "rules"!
aimee - great news about the car - I do hope that you and DH get a break soon on his work issues! I am worrying like crazy.
hoping4bubs - I do hope your girlfriend and her bub are okay - my cousins twins arrived at 33 weeks recently. Very scary, but I am so amazed at what modern miracles in medicine there are. (oh - and hers were boy/girl)
fifi - oh go AWAY ms fairy!! That just sucks and it so unfair.
Great list MOH!! Everything looks better after sleep.
AFM - well, I am currently at my sister's place doing work/housesitting and I have had absolutely crap sleep every night!
It seems at least 2 hours every early morning is dedicated to trying to resume sleep and that is VERY hard work. Fluffy pillows and inordinate worrying don't help.
TMI, but last week while doing the deed there was a slight show, which freaked V out and I reassured him but was freaking myself. (There has been nothing since)
The next morning I had a nightmare that the baby had disappeared and I am sure my tum is slacker.
Since then I have alternately convinced myself that nothing is wrong and I am still feeling things move, and the rest of the time I am scared that that is just gas an I wish to goodness I had some morning sickness or something to give me proof positive that it is all systems go.
My SIL has had to go to hospital a few times to be rehydrated due to her MS, and she doesn't know just how serious I am when I am offering to take a percentage of that off her hands.
So next Thursday (because before then I have a combination of no time/no access to facilities) my first question will be to find the heartbeat because it is really doing my head in.
After that, despite my assurance at the beginning that we weren't going to find out sex, if it is presented we will find out because this is likely to be the last one and knowing whether I will be a girl specialist or on a completely different trip would be nice.
Posted 03 July 2009 - 12:05 PM
I am 16 weeks today and my doctor said blood pressure etc good, I have put on 1.3kg since my first doctors appointment, which is good apparently.
Can i please be added to the list
Meredith aka missm
Location: Sunshine Coast
Due: 15 December 2009
Other Kids: DD 7.10.2006
Finding Out: No
AFM: So excited I beat all the crowds yesterday at Big W and was able to put a trampoline on layby for DD 3rd birthday and a swing on layby for Christmas for her. These are joint presents from us and her grandparents so thats my shopping for her done for the rest of the year.
Have a lovely weekend everyone and will drop in next week.
Posted 03 July 2009 - 12:15 PM
MOH- thanks for the list. I think I have your cold though It's not too bad but kept me up last night so am taking it pretty easy today hoping it will just disappear
Fifi, sorry you've not been well again Hope things pick up for you soon!
mrsjt- OMG how exciting!! Congrats on having a boy! I can't believe we're already up to the stage where we can find out already! (quickly losing my resolve to have a surprise, must stay strong... )
hoping4bubsin09- oh no how scary for your bestie! Sounds like things will work out ok, please update us on how she and bubs go ok? Wishing her all the best. Yay for your mum buying a capsule
*jax*- that's the kind of first-time-mum advice I can handle! Yay for shopping- and girls can definitely wear navy!
*iwanttobakesomebuns*- I agree, I always have some kind of worry in the back of my mind, but overall am staying fairly relaxed about things, as long as I'm looking after myself. I feel like I'm the queen of googling since becoming PG though!
aimee78- Yay for the new car!! Bummer about the scan being delayed, but I'm sure time will fly and you'll be there in no time
suzie- I also had a bit of a freakout moment after DTD the other night, when my uterus seemed to scrunch up into a tight little ball!!! After some googling () I found this is quite normal and not a problem, but gosh it was weird!!!! I'm still not sure if it is the same thing as a braxton hicks or not, having not experienced them before...
MissM- Great work with the shopping! Glad your appointment went well! (Eek, I think I'm nearly up to 5kg!!)...
AFM, not much to report here. Have been getting some sensations in my belly this morning, but not willing to commit to them being the baby as I'm still unsure! Will wait for some more definite signs Not feeling well at all so taking it easy, drinking lots of hot lemon and honey drinks, and eating lots of curried lentil and vegie soup that I made last night
Bought a couple of baby outfits at the op shop the other day- both pink, even though I'm still pretty sure I'm having a boy. They were so cheap! And in good nic
Hope you're all doing well ladies

alibaba - If you're not 100% sure about finding out the sex we had friends who asked the for the sex to be written on a piece of paper and put in an envelope. They opened it on a special occasion about a month later with family. May be a thought if you think you'd be kicking yourself if you don't find out. And sorry for sharing my cold with you
Missm - I'll add you to the list. Good on you with the sales. We're thinking of getting DS a trampoline for christmas. Our neighbour has one and he was on it for ages yesterday.
suziej - that is a scary dream. I'm sure things are okay but if you are really worried pop to a GP and ask them to check with a doppler for a heartbeat.
fifi - being sick really sucks. Hope you're back to 100% in no time.
hoping4bubs - best wishes for your bestie. Hope bubs is all good. My bestie's step daughter had a little girl at 31 weeks about 3 months ago. Bubs had no probs breathing and was home within 3 weeks.
jax - I'm going to buy something as soon as we find out the sex. We already have tonnes of littel boy clothes but I'll still get something special for hospital.
iwanttobakesomebuns - DS was only in neutrals for 2 days and people were bringing pre-washed 'blue' clothes to the hospital that we could use.
aimee - great new about the car. Nice to have one thing sorted! I've worried more this pregnancy than I did my first one. But if you do the things you can then the rest is really out of our hands. It is hard at times but worrying only adds anxiety to the pregnancy that for the most part is not warranted.
AFM - made myself a bit omelette for lunch and it was really tasty. It was just what I felt like. Just craving something sweet now! I also cleaned our ensuite today. Bit embarrassed because it had been over a fortnight since I'd done it and it was revolting. But just haven't been up to it. Glad it's done now though!
Posted 03 July 2009 - 01:22 PM
Popping in before the weekend.
h4bi09 - hope everything goes well for your friend, I'm sure she and bubs will be fine.
mrsjt - congratulations - OMG i am so impatient to find out, roll on Thursday.
mumofhayden - thank you for updating the list.
alibaba~81 - sorry to hear you are sick. I'm an incubator for disease at the moment. I have worked out in the last 9 weeks I have had the flu (I don't think it was swine flu although I got sick one day after getting off a plane so who knows) that laid me up for a week, 2 normal colds, a bout of gastro and 3 icky COLD SORES.
Hi fifi - sorry you have been unwell
Anyway have a great weekend
Posted 03 July 2009 - 06:38 PM
Hi all - yay for the weekend!
We went to see our obst on Thursday, told her I'm not coping with work with my back so sore as well. She has dropped me down to 5 hours per day at work - YAYYY
So starting Monday I can get a bit more sleep and actually contribute to the household a little, DH is happy too.
We have our big ultrasound on Tuesday, DH hasn't seen Nugget live so that will be special. Trying not to find out the sex but very tempting!
Last night I dreamt I gave birth, but to a cat, a ginger and white fully grown cat that talked and was wearing a MCN! What the?
Something that made me sad: I was lurking on the Due in 16-30th Nov thread only to find they have lost 2 babies this week, at or after 19 weeks. I hope they are coping as well as possible, and I hope so much none of us have to deal with something so horrible.
Personals: I just can't keep up with the goss like some more organised souls, my compliments to those that can. I hope everyone is well or at least getting better!
Have lovely weekends all - I have a massage booked on saturday arvo which I am Sooooo looking forward to!
Belly rubs to all.
Posted 03 July 2009 - 07:41 PM
madreader - yes the threads have left me unsettled as well. Read Lara (TheCrone)'s story about going for her 19 week ultrasound and being told her baby had died. We know we're pretty safe now but it does bring home that things can still go wrong. I only saw Lara's story and not the other one - how terrible for two families to be going through that.
Posted 03 July 2009 - 10:13 PM
Oh my goodness....I just read Lara, Kirsty and Louise's stories from the 16th -30th nov dig I can't stop crying. I am so terrified of anything happening to our babies. Lousie was a woman pregnant with twins who was suffering from a bit of dizziness and difficulty breathing she collapsed in her hubby's arms and died after lots of cpr. She had DVT it had gone to her lungs. I pray for you all and hope we can all have happy and healthy pregnancies with beautiful babies born full of life in dec 2010. I just feel so sad.

Those poor families, my heart aches for them. It is my sisters DIG and I can't even to begin to imagine how those ladies are coping. It seems so unfair.
Posted 04 July 2009 - 11:24 AM
Oh how terrible, giving me goosebumps already and I haven't even read the stories yet, not sure if I'm brave enough to. This is the thing I am panicing about the most that I get to the scan and there is no heart beat, it is so weird with the other 2 I was excited about my 19wk scan this time I'm dreading it. Don't think I could take any more bad news, the car has already fallen through this week so back to the drawing board on that one.
Hoping4bubs - not sure bout u but I don't think I could stand being pregnant for another yr so I'm praying for a bubs in Dec 09!! LOL - although I did one of those silly things on facebook and it said I was going to have a boy on Dec 25 2010!!! Which really settled my worries NOT!!!
Hope everyone else is ok and not worrying too much.
