I agree with Angela 38 is definitely not too old to have a baby and a relaxed approach is definitely the best way.

How's everyone doing?

I'm 36 weeks today and only 18 days left to go, countdown is on as my back and ligament pains are getting a lot worse. Also sitting in a cinema for nearly 3 hours this far pregnant is definitely not a good idea, was so uncomfortable. We met with babies consultants a few days ago and they explained his surgerys and the rough plan we have in a lot more detail which was great. They have said they will look into us storing baby's stem cells but they will not do the treatment we were hoping for. It did sort of upset me a bit but I completely understand as it's still in testing stages in America and they do not have any evidence to say it will help him. My mum thinks we should speak to the specialist in America and go have the trial but I just think it's too risky, plus its a whole team of doctors we don't know and we wouldn't have our family around us or a proper income as my OH would have to take unpaid leave. So at the moment that croute stops here and we just have to keep our faith and trust in the doctors we have met so far and the others we will meet along our journey.

Finally been able to get back on this app. I had issues saying my internet connection was not connected.

Ria wow your so close, hope it all goes well for you.

Nikki so sorry that you have lost two. That must be hard to take it. Wishing for you that this one holds on. How many weeks are you? I think we might be close.

Angela you haven't got too much longer either. Hope everything is going well.

Time has flown by, I'm already 12 weeks. I've had my 12 weeks scan and did a NIPT test and got my results this morning. Everything came back all clear for chromosomal abnormalities. This was such a relief... now we can announce to rest of family and friends. Just not sure how to approach it.

Is anyone else having issues with this app? It’s not showing the latest comments for me and logging me out and not letting me log in at times etc.

Yes. I am too. I think Ría has had the baby already. It’s been 40 weeks I think. Angela how are you these day? Ready for the big day? Please let us know once the baby arrives. I bet your almost there. Just a few more days I guess.

This app is frustrating! I can’t see any comments from July 19th. Next comments are August 7th. Anyways I hope everyone is doing well. I’m 18 weeks now and starting to feel baby move around at times which is super exciting.
I hope everything is ok with Ria and baby Leo.
Hopefully your little one is all good and just getting ready for their grand entrance Angela.

Hi ladies, hope your all doing well and sorry I didn't get on to update. Leo was born on the 1st August at 10:40. He was just perfect and needed immediate intervention and surgery. He did have some complications but recovered well. Unfortunately after a few days he started to struggle with his lungs and got a suspected diagnosis of lymphangiectasia as well as his heart condition. They started steroids and other things to try help strength his lungs but yesterday was he's last day of them and they saw no improvement. They explored every option possible but he wasn't strong enough for surgery and there was no other options. Yesterday we got to spend to spend a perfect day with him being able to hold him for the first time, bath, dress him and create memories. He was just amazing and carried on fighting to the very end, but at quarter to 11 last night he passed away in our arms.

When you are ready I found it quite helpful to read a book written by elle Wright ask me his name. Her son passed away few days old. She also has instgram page called featheringtheemptynest. I am sure you would share similar emotions and it might help you to feel not alone.
