Oh Ty she's amazing. She looks so perfect. I think I have just disolved into a gooey, oozy puddle of cluckiness (possibly a good thing under the circumstances!!!)

She is the same size and head circ as my Biggest Bug was, so I understand just how deliciously tiny she is. wub.gif

huge CONGRATULATIONS Ty and family!! Aerynn is absolutely beautiful (how do you pronounce her name BTW?) Hope you are recovering nicely after a quick labour.

Big HI to everyone else and welcome to all the newbies, hope you have a long and comfy stay here.

I'm just reading along as I am starting to freak out that I only have about 11w to go and DS is still driving me mad with his TT, or should I say lack there of, in the poos department!!! I know he can do it, I'm sure he is just doing it to pee me off!!!

Thinking of you Jen.

Love to all

Kat- I actually gasped! she is so beautiful. Those are some good looking kids

Oh holy crap Tygrays - she is just adorable! As with mamabug I could cry, what a perfect bundle of gorgeousness. Sob, ramble, hormones!

Mama - I'm sorry but I really hope baby brother arrives before you hit 38 weeks original.gif in fact I hope he's here asap!!

DF - I'm afraid the people on FB are mostly not the same people who are suddenly interested in the baby for the first time in 25 weeks (since announced). People are going to be even madder this time too because I learned from last time I don't want ANY visitors in hospital! I know at least two people who will hate that!

Kate - Why did you go out after DH's 30th? You're a better wife than me, I reckon I wouldve been gone by midnight (if I lasted past dessert which is pretty unlikely!)

I forced myself to walk this arvo and by goodness if it wasn't the slowest, sorest walk in the world. I hope that at least means he's fully engaged - last night I said to DH I felt like if I wanted to I could reach in and touch his head (and how could it possibly take him 12 hours to travel 3 inches?)

Ob at 9am - everyone cross everything for either labour before that, or at least have favourable conditions for a S&S!

I'll report in after seeing Ob (unless of course something magic happens beforehand roll2.gif)

I had 101 visitors the 1st time and wished they'd given me a break so it was good with #2 as we moved to Brisbane and hardly knew anyone lol. Tho with #3 I had a few more visitors but so was good that it was only a handful of ppl. This time I am still umming and arring whether to do the move to Sydney earlier and go to total different hospital (and again have a handful of visitors) or stay here. I try not to visit ppl until they have settled in at home for a few weeks - more relaxing I find.

I know someone who actually turned their phone off for the last two weeks of their pg to avoid the constant calls. I wish I could help but will send huge **hug** and wish they would have been interested the whole way thru.

awwww....so beautiful  wub.gif

Jen hope the appointment gos well, you are doing your damndest to get him out, surely it has to pay off somehow!

DF, I'm the same. I have two good friends (they are related to each other), and they all do the family thing with millions of visitors and they have people there all day and night with all the kids. How tiresome!
dd#1 I had a few friends, but mostly dh's family as we lived in his home state with his family.
So that was sisters/nieces/nephews/grandparents and one visit in 6 days from my mil rant.gif  You would think that when your only son has his first baby you would be keen to visit. But it appears that she is scared of kids. (she had 5...I wonder how!)
I had few visitors with dd#2 as she was prem and I think that scared people off. I was rather upset at the time that no one even asked to come! I had my cousin (one of the mothers in the above statement) and my parents and brother. That was it.

I'm not sure if my friends here in singapore will visit, mainly because some of them are chinese and in their culture they go into like an isolation for the first month (confinement). I have told them that I wont be doing anything of the sort and that isnt how I do it.
So might get a visitor or two...who knows!
lol. they only have you in hospital for two days here, so expecting they will visit me at home anyhow.

Waiting patiently for news from you Jen hhugs.gif

Good luck to all those having testing & welcome to any new ladies.

Rightyo - I'm on the ctg to be sure but it doesn't look like baby brother is coming today (or anytime soon).

My cervix is soft, 1-2cm but still high and back - Ob can "bounce" baby brothers head quite easily so he's not fully engaged and seems to have plenty of room/fluid still - damn him!

On top of that my BP has gone up again, so while it's not bad enough to evict him yet, it's not good.

Ob said keep an eye on my BSL in case BP messes with them, if they go up he's coming out and if BP goes up again he's coming out.

Next appointment is on Sunday, another internal exam, ctg, BP etc at the labour ward (Ob confident?!!) and we'll go from there. Ob is not confident baby brother will come on his own and is worried about my BP combined with the other factors and thinks it would be too dangerous to be going as far as 42 weeks at this point sad.gif

I asked him if there was anything I could do - he said relax and rest and enjoy this time while I can original.gif I do like my Ob even if he continues to refuse to tell me lies!

So it's looking like baby brother will be here by next week at the latest - I will still ignore my Ob and go for another walk up that darn hill just in case original.gif

BBL with no news I expect!

Morning Ladies,

Ty - You have a very beautiful baby there!!  I almost cried when I saw those pictures.  Did you take them yourself or get someone professional??

Jen - Sorry baby brother isn't any closer to meeting you and that your BP is rising.  Put your feet up and maybe this afternoon go for that walk.  I have High BP and everyone keeps telling me exercise is good in getting it down.  Maybe the walk might kill 2 birds with one stone so to speak.

mrsnorthman - Just breathe!! And take each day at a time.

Kate - How are you feeling after all those lollies?  I think I did the same with Mars Bar cookies last night.  1 to many I think!!

Key - Sorry hun but I can't help you with the u/s.  Not very good at working out what everything is.

DF - Glad everything went well at your appointment yesterday.  

Hi Bigmum, chocmudcake, angel, Mama, Ty and everyone else waves.gif

Day off today and it didn't stat very well.  Had a sleep in this morning and woke up to dead silence.  Not normal with 2 staffys in the back yard.  Went out side to call them...nothing looked down the side and the gate was open.  So then I ran inside put my trackies on and started running down the street like a mad woman calling out for my dogs.  (I had no shoes on, no bra (yes ouch!!) and didn't even brush my hair!!).  They were all the way down the other end of the street so I decided to get my car and drive down there and get them into the car.  (They ate their collars last week so I couldn't put their leads on them).  So after grabbing them and shoving them into the car I got them home!!  Let me tell you DH got an ear full when I got home as he is the only one who uses the side gate.  

So now I am nerviously waiting until 1.30pm for my OB appointment.  Will check in latter hopefully a little bit more reassured everything is progressing nicely.

morning all!

I do like my Ob even if he continues to refuse to tell me lies!
The truth might get you in a frame of mind ready for delivering Tounge1.gif
Sorry to hear about the bp, and baby brother not being right down yet. Heres hoping something happens during the week. If not I'm sure it wont be too long till you meet BB !!

Jen1607! GRRR to men. My dh has done a few things like that. Irritating so and so! Glad your doggies are home safe and sound. Try and rest up before your appointment! although buy your time its not too long till then anyway! I am on perth time here in sg lol

Had a bugger of a night. SI pain radiating from the si round to the right front. Agony doesnt even describe it! SOooooooo painful!
That'll be because of sitting in front of the computer for the best part of yesterday sad.gif and sittingo n the couch for the rest of the day.
Time for a swim to click things back into place and rest those ligaments.
Sigh. I dont want another 4 months of this pain. Its excrutiating and worries me because I feel like I'm in labour sometimes! it hurts so bad!
Ah well. a new day. maybe yoga or pilates? haha!

Awww  thanks all original.gif  We soooo love our littlest princess original.gif  She had a rough first night with a belly full of wind and a lot of mucous to clear from her system but she's sleeping like a little doll now wub.gif  I've overdone things this morning and feeling really light headed and giddy - that'll teach me haha  I guess if we were in hospital it's an enforced rest, at home life goes on - to the point it's almost incomprehensible that Aerynn is only 1 day old, it feels like she'd been around a lot longer!!!

Anyhoos, possibly about to lock horns with parents here... eing told that I'm going to spoil Aerynn by holding and nursing her and that she's being spoiled Grrrr  Augh  got the same thing with each bubba so nothing new, just not in the mood at the moment to be tactful LOL

Jen - lurking for news - hoping and praying that things get started for you like NOW!!!  original.gif

off to feed the littlest miss original.gif  Will continue to lurk for news

**belly rubs** for all


BTW  The pics of Aerynn I took myself original.gif  Love my camera!!!

Bigmum - I feel your pain...literally! I had an emergency physio appt today to try and get me moving again. The last two days have been agony. I feel as though someone has the jaws of life in my middle, forcing my hips apart, with the pain radiating down both thighs and through my si. sad.gif

jen - so the race is still on, then??!! Have they given you an absolute deadline date as yet?

#40 Mrs Dinosaurus

Posted 09 August 2011 - 02:37 PM

Mama - no absolute deadline yet but to be honest after all this I'm thinking Monday 15th anyway - if things have progressed Sunday and are looking like I'll go into labour on my own 'soon' I will leave things to take their course, but if things are unchanged or my BP is up still I am tempted to have him and have at least a couple of days alone before my Mum arrives Wednesday, my mum is pretty good but with Oliver I would have happily seen no one for weeks! I expect to feel the same anti-social hormones this time! I'm still hoping to go naturally before Sunday and will continue trying to get these bloody contractions to turn into labour (they must be for something surely?) I think the longer it goes on and the worse I feel the more open I am to a c/s - I just hope if I do have one I still feel happy about it afterwards!

Yabber yabber yabber!

Off to have a bath before getting DS from day care. I'm soooo tired!

Oh - and in a completely unrelated vent, my mum has organised a surprise party for my step dads 60th. The invite says:

Cocktail Party

Dress - casual

drinks - bar prices

venue - golf club


I'm sorry Ma, but if you don't have cocktails, you don't dress cocktail you aren't having a cocktail party - although there is a good chance of cocktail sav's. Wanna come mamabug - I know how you like cocktail sav's laughing2.gif

DF- exciting on the first MCN. They are so addictive. I've had to put my purchases on hold (I've told myself it's only till the move, then all bets are off!) I'm sure your baby won't be overcooked! Speak with TNMN- she went to nearly 43 weeks and her little one is gorgeous!

Aussie- 11 weeks to go does sound really close! That's me tomorrow ohmy.gif

Bigmum- I will be in Coffs with my baby, so we won't have any visitors at first. I think it might be nice to have the bonding time together as a family. I hope that swim fixed things in your pelvis

MrsNorthman- I hope the vampires were nice to you today. Not long till the scan. I love scans, but yes, they are nervewracking. Keep talking to us. As you can see by my day, the panic never ends.

TNMN- Carys is beautiful- love the new sig

Jens- I hope DH was suitable humble when he got home to find he let the dogs out. How did you go at the OB?

Ty- you have to watch those 35 hour olds the most- they are so manipulative  biggrin.gif

Mama- I hope the physio did a miracle job on your body today original.gif

Jen- that's no cocktail party! I'm still of the opinion baby will come on his due date

AFM- bit of a panic today- I woke at 2am with lots of wriggling and tightenings. Couldn't get back to sleep for ages. Still went to work today  wacko.gif , the wriggling and tightenings continue all morning. Did some reading on BH and the advice is if it continues for more than 2 hours or you have two within 12 mins of each other, go to hospital. Went and had a lie down in sick bay and had 3 'BH' in 10 mins. Took myself off to hospital and they monitored me for an hour- no BH. It's just baby kicking me non stop. He is so strong. They are still going! He has hardly let up all day. The OB said it's better to have too many than too few. I agree that movement is good, but this is ridiculous. I need to sleep at some stage!

It was a good outcome (not early labour, yay!) but I felt a bit silly and there is no relief. I am taking tomorrow off work. I'm sure that will help

I am just having a nightmare that bub will be 4/5 weeks over and 10 pound something. In end I know I wont go full term so its just a "thought". So agree, TNMN little on is so gorgeous...

Jen42: Hope BP stays level for you.

Mumabug and Bigmum: Hope the pain has settled for you

Jens1607: How did your apt go?

Tygrays: Love the shots!!!

Hi to ChocMud, Indah, Hernette, Key4 and all I have missed, hope you are all well.

AFM: Nothing to exciting happening here, bedrest, bedrest etc....Cant get into skin specialist until next January so tht will be a waste of time as really want to deal with now. Pain pretty bad today so hopefully can rest more tomorrow. Bub is going to be born and the 1st thing bub is going to do is lay there poking my stomach and say "do you like that?" as I keep seeing if bub is ok lol.....

#44 Mrs Dinosaurus

Posted 09 August 2011 - 08:34 PM

Kate - don't ever be embarrassed by checking everything is ok original.gif

DF - I'm nearly 40 weeks and I STILL poke him to make sure he's ok!

If ANYONE else calls or sms's to ask "how I'm going" I'm turning the phone off. rant.gif

Grrr! Grrr some more!

#45 Caramel Latte

Posted 09 August 2011 - 09:21 PM

Jen42: Somewhat glad I am not the only one that pokes bub to see if bub is ok!

Kate-ko: I forgot to add that every time I have to go to the hospital or the OB for a check etc after a bleed etc... they have always said "they would rather check and all is ok, than for the patient to wait and have something wrong. Yes, it may all be ok BUT they actually do like when they get the good outcomes, it's a break from the bad". This is said after I have apologised for wasting their time - in reply to that I also get "You are not wasting our time".... check will at least put your mind at ease!!!

AFM: EBAY is now an addiction - have the parts for the stroller - parent console, tray, car seat adaptor. Just need the bassinet and the travel bag (for when I have to return to Brissy to work - if still working there). Was able to pick up a double breast pump for a fraction of the new cost, so will just get some new parts for it. Now up to 9 MCNS too... so need a new hobby otherwise will be able to open my own baby shop soon lol.

#46 Mrs Dinosaurus

Posted 09 August 2011 - 10:19 PM

Cross everything - contractions 10 minutely but quite painful and after 4 pads and much checking I am definitely not weeing myself! Not sure if it's a show/mucus plug or amniotic fluid so I've come to bed to lay down and see if it gets more or less leaky! DH will be very chuffed if baby brother comes tomorrow (his Dads birthday!)

I'll be sure to let you know if I go in, meanwhile just send me both labour vibes and pain management vibes!

Posted 09 August 2011 - 10:24 PM

Good luck Jen: will keep fx and hopefully lurk for baby news!!!!!

ETA: OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG! DH and I just agreed on a name... "Charlotte" so not sure if it fits in with siblings or even if bub is a girl lol but looks like bub is a "Charlotte" no matter what as that so far is the ONLY name we both said yes too! Though I do think is close to youngests name, but I have never really one who (until this bub and reading EB) worried if bubs name suited siblings etc.

Well it's 3.30am and contractions are about 6-7 minutes apart but lasting around a minute each time. They hurt too much to sleep through but I continue to try as I know there's still a while to go! I'm worried the pain is centred down low, not all over, if this is another fake there's no way DH can go to work because I definitely can't take care of DS all day!

Hopefully things will progress slowly enough to get DS to day care then quickly to have baby brother before day care ends! I'll keep you posted original.gif
