Glad to hear your nephew is doing well.

I completely get where you come from, there were a few people that said to my partner about it being his last father's day before being a dad but to us he already is. Yes this is his first child but he's done more for Leo then some people that already have kids. I got him a card and a little present and wrote a message in from both me and baby. Mothers day this year was the first time I've never received anything, we had only just had the news about baby's condition so my partner didn't get me anything. Since I lost my son his dad had always sent me something even if it was just a message but this year he's cut all ties and didn't do anything. I sent him a message yesterday to wish him a happy father's day but got nothing in return not even sure he has the same phone number and tbh it hurt because like you said no one seems to count you as a parent when you didn't get to take your baby home. Its like when people say you wouldnt understand your not a parent or wait till your a parent but to me I am a mum and I have been to my little boy for the past 7 years.

The wedding was great, but I was so uncomfortable so glad it wasn't a full day event. I was also very emotional think it was the pregnancy hormones as I had to stop myself crying during the ceremony. It also made us come to the decision that once baby is home we are going to start planning our wedding properly for in 2021.

Glad you met people that live close it's always nice to have friends close as your kids can grow up together etc. How is your nephew doing?

Nikkilou how are you doing?

Honestly if he faints il kill him. 32 weeks today, its scary to think I only have about 6 weeks left. Today is my best friends wedding though and I'm so looking forward to it even if its going to be a long day with being in work after. Just not got dressed up in a long time and will be good to be a bit more then just a pregnant person.

Haha I'm so scared of Aaron passing out during my section. I've just told him to keep his eyes on me and behind the curtain haha. I've been told some classes really help but if not there good to build a support network.

That's great that he is doing well Angela. Hopefully he will be back home again soon. Hope you enjoy your NCT class I cancelled my bookings as one was a tour which were now at a different hospital, one being breastfeeding but we have a breastfeeding nurse at the hospital we're at that will help more with expressing and one was a new parents one but we won't be able to do a lot of the things for a while. There meant to be really good though xx

It's great that your scan went well Angela. I can't wait for ours next week. And sorry to hear about your nephew and hope he recovers quickly and gets back home. My god son had bronchitis when he was a baby and it was horrible to see him like it but obviously will be harder for your nephew with him being a prem baby.

I saw my midwife today and we have gone from 50th centile to above the 95th. I am so proud of my little man and how well he is doing.

Ah that's good, yeah I was told if 2 lots of reduced movements they usually refer for a scan. How did the scan go?
Leo did the same when we went in started moving when mo itors were on. He doesn't like things in his space, like if I am leaning my hands on him while in my phone or anything like that he starts kicking till I move haha.

Hey Angela, how did the hospital go? Nearly ended up there today myself as had pink blood on tissue this morning but was told to just keep an eye on it and had nothing since.
I made the decision today to bring my maternity leave forward a bit as I'm really starting to struggle. I now finish on the 26th of this month, which is good as gives me more time to be home and relax and make sure everything is ready. And will help as I will have a lot of appointments in my last few weeks so will be easier then having to sort everything out with work. Can't believe I'm 31 weeks, or that I'm even pregnant after all this time. Just hoping that the little blood this morning was not the start of showing and that he stays put a little longer.

Hi ladies, just read to catch up on everything.
Angela I hope your nephew makes a quick recovery and continues to do well.

Nikkilou, sorry to hear you lost one of the triplets but let's hope the other 2 keep progressing and doing well. I think it's more common then people think to loose one baby with multiples as I've heard a lot of stories on my ivf pregnancy page of loosing one of twins or triplets. It's a lot harder on the body and a lot more complications.

Me and Leo are doing well, haven't had anymore appointments since my midwife one 2 weeks ago and I will see her again next week. We went to MAU last week with reduced movements and once monitors were on he started moving but not as much as normal but went back to normal the next day and the hospital was concerned. Our next scan isn't till 20th but hoping we will get our c section date then to start the planning and going to ask about having a spinal block instead of epidural as heard its meant to be better recovery and more effective. Also starting to really struggle with work and being exhausted so possibly going to talk about going off a little earlier as it will be more worth it then reducing my hours.

Bud, first good luck in your journey and welcome to the group. Your cramps could be a few things such as ovulation or just normal stomach cramps. Nothing to worry about. Are you tracking your ovulation?

Angela, I have no idea how I haven't put on more as even though my appetite isn't great and I do cook healthy meals I have had takeaways and a lot of sweets and cake etc.

Chantelle good luck, I never found out the levels of hcg just got told it was very high so possibly twins but ended up just being one. All I have to say about the scan is to relax it can take them a few minutes to find baby which really scared me but he implanted as far away as he could haha. Also doesn't help because your ovaries will still be a little big especially if you have any OHSS symptoms.

Saw my gp yesterday who confirmed it is oral thrush, not sure if it's the medicine for that or baby but started with heartburn last night too. Suppose I've got off lightly symptom wise during this pregnancy so can't complain.

Hi, didn't manage to get an appointment other then for this afternoon but I don't have the energy to go up there again so going to try tomorrow. Its not sore so isn't massively bothering me. My midwife has said with us now definitely having the section they don't want me to start collecting till 37 weeks as they don't want me going into spontaneous labour but she said the nurses at the hospital may advise different and if they do go with them. I may have a look I to that book, thank you. I've managed to only put on 4kg so far in pregnancy too which I'm really proud of considering baby is around 3 pound now, it was something I wasn't too bothered about but I didn't want to put too much on with doing so well to loose all my weight to have ivf.

Chantelle, that's really good we only got 4 eggs with 3 fertilising and one put back in, none were able to be frozen. They usually tell you to keep taking the pessaries until either after your first scan if your having a early one with them or until your 12 weeks. Just it helps to lower chance of miscarriage, I know people that have been given them without ivf because of reoccurring miscarriage. I didn't mind egg collection as I was sedated but was awake during the whole thing just talking to the nurses, I could feel them poking around but no pain and went straight to sleep after. I hated transfer as with a tilted uterous it was very painful for me and I was scared of contracting.

Angela I think I'm going to call up my gp this morning and see if I can get an appointment around my midwife one just don't want to go up for my midwife appointment and then go back later to see the doctor, especially when back at work tomorrow.

Although on the bright side I started leaking a bit of colestrum yesterday which hopefully means my milk will come through when he's here and I can use breatmilk to help him fight infections.

Fair enough loads of people have said to me why you packing you've got plenty of time. But at the same time I have baby's bag to pack, my bag for in the hospital and then a suitcase for our accommodation. I'm glad I've started as I feel a bit more relaxed and I have what they think may be thrush in my mouth and been told it will be stress. Got to go see my gp (well a gp because mine walked out the surgery and said he's never coming back) and see what I can have for it as chemist didn't want to suggest anything and wasn't sure if it was definitely thrush as he said if it is its only early stages. Not sure if my midwife can check tomorrow.

Yeah I get that. I think the reason I am packing early because its the o ly thing I really have control over at the minute. Its helped me to remember all the little things I'd forgot to get too. Plus obviously he will be here up to 2 weeks early so only have around 10 weeks left.

Nikkilou, so glad everything is going well at the minute. I had no explanation for the bleeds I had either. I can imagine it was definitely hard for them to try see all 3 heartbeats, I only have one and he's always been a bugger when it comes to checking his heartbeat even at my scan at 7 weeks because he implanted at the furthest point possible.

Congratulations chantelle, I hope the Ivf process was kind to you as I know some people have a really hard time with the medications. Are you still having pessaries or progesterone injections?

Angela glad the baby show went well seen there were some celebs about and someone I know had a stall on there and said it was a good weekend. I wished I lived closer to them.

So update on me, my pain in my hips and below the bump I think is made worse by my ibs as the other day I was bunged up (sorry for tmi) and I was in agony. Still going o speak to my midwife about it tomorrow as also had a few dizzy spells where I've felt faint but I don't know if that's the warm weather. I started our packing yesterday got a few more bits to get but think it's helped me to relax and sort out some of baby's room. Hoping my partner wakes up feeling better today to put his furniture together but he's having a lot of stomach problems so not sure yet.
