Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks Lisa for your Congrats. Lachlan is doing well but still no set routine so suffering.g sleep deprivation. How r u going?
Hi Lisa, how's your pregnancy going?
Hi Lis, how are you? thanks for the note. yes i am so relieved i dont have GD. although i am getting huger by the minute and now no longer have any clothes that look smart for work. I may go out and get myself some nice track suit pants, since will probably wearing them alot around the house for the next 6 - 12 months.
Cant wait for bub to arrive. How are you going? My hip pain has returned in full force in third trimester and also fatigue has returned. I finally got my hubby to help me set up the nursery so at least that is one weight of my mind.
How are you feeling now?
Thank you so much!
We were so relieved and excited when we learned everything was fine.
We've decided to leave finding out the sex of our baby as a surprise on the day.
I've started 'expanding' and am loving every moment!
Thanks for your note. Its strange since i am not overweight and never have been. i have had no cravings at all and am not even snacking, just eating 3 normal meals a day. have my 2 hour glucose test next week and hope by that time my sugar level has gone down a bit. without short of starving myself, i dont really know what i can do.
My hip pain is still bad. My hubby and I went out on the weekend and bought a new mattress for our bed. Cross your fingers it gives me a few more nights of sleep before bub comes. how are you going? love to hear all of your goss.
Your belly bump looks great!! are people nice to you now that you are visibly pregnant? I am finding a few people are actually standing up for me on the train (but only girls, the men dont seem to care). I have been going to an exercise class once a week and my hip pain is not improving and neither is my sleep. I have two appointments this week. One today to see a psychiatrist at the hospital, since they want to go through some things about postnatal depression ( i could be suseptable since had a brief bout of depression in my early 30's). I have a physio appointment tomorrow to discuss wearing a hip brace.
This may help my pain.
What's new in your world. Cant believe you are 30 weeks!! Wow! I wish i was that far along. The due date for me seems so far away.
Thanks for your note . I went ahead with my CVS appointment..funny enough it was on Valentines Day. The nurse said that it could be a good sign, anyhow I was actually pretty scared of the needle to be honest. The procedure is similar to the amnio from memory..They place a local anestetic in my tummy then another needle through to the outside of the baby's sack and take a few samples of fluids. They had to do it twice as I requested a FISH result aswell. The anestetic wasn't that bad at all however the 2nd needle did put some pressure on something in my tummy that caused some pain pain. My FISH result came back that I'm having a healthy baby girl. I was over the moon.
I'm still waiting for the actuall CVS result, thankgod for the FISH result. Hows your pregnancy going?
Hi Lisa, puppy and older dog Daisy now tolerate eachother, however house training is becoming extremely trying!
He just doesnt want to go outside or on any paper. I hope we can get him house trained before the new baby arrives.
How are you going? I am getting fed up of everyone always trying to get out of us, what the sex is. They think they all know it is a boy and even though we have found it is a boy, dont want to tell anyone. We want it to be a surprise for everyone, but they are all ruining it, but continually saying that they all know. My mother in law thinks she saw a bump on the Ultrasound video between the legs!
She even bought me blue baby clothes, which i find infuriating considering we havent told anyone the sex.
Are you telling all your friends and family the sex?
Wow! cant believe your're lucky enough to have your work pay your medical bills. how did you get them to do that?
I couldnt afford an Obs, so am just going public with midwifes. Hope it will be okay.
The appt went well, nothing much to report except my measurement from my belly button to pubic bone is 18 cms, spot on for 18 weeks. They do not weight women anymore since it doesnt have much correlation with the size of the baby. No US taken, just a doppler.
Still cant feel any movement??? Bought a new little puppy on the weekend to keep my older dog company. Thought it would be a good idea and remove any jealousy when baby comes. Hasnt quite worked that way, since my existing dog hates the new puppy. Its only been a week, so I am hoping they bond very soon!!!
How are you going?
I'm going really well over the nausea now, just found out i'm having a boy and now stuck for names, hope everything is gping wel on you end
Just got my results, and all is well!! I am having a boy too! So relieved and happy.
Thanks, Lisa! It's certainly been on my mind, lately. Mine is Monday morning.... yours is Tues, right? Hey, with the time difference maybe they'll be nearly at the same time. I'm in Vancouver, BC.
adding you as a friend so I don't forget to let you know how my amnio goes (please let me know about yours!)... we're one day apart with that appointment.
Really hoping things go well for both of us.
