Fxd for the NT scan cat! I had that done, though a lot of people choose not to have it. I have had a huge appetite all the way through! Though been off certain foods. I need to slow down as now bump getting bigger I feel like a whale after a big tea/dinner. Scan pic?

Aww daydream sorry he's got to have the op, hope everything goes well, keep us posted

Katie my friend has been almost crying with her heartburn, her OH has a big Afro so they're expecting a hairy baby! She asked the mw about it & apparently it's true! I had no hair (well hardly any) til I was 2 & expecting my LO to be the same, but I don't know with the heartburn tale!

not sure how i missed this link before! Daydream, glad the surgery is common, although it sucks that harrison has to go through any sort of surgery. You are in my thoughts!

I have had a good experience with bf, so if anyone has any questions i can hopefully offer some insight. Gabby is a super latcher, and i must make super milk as she has steadily gained about 2 oz a day. average is 1 oz!

Can't wait to hear your birth stories, MrsP, Katie and Cat! I love birth stories. and we need bump pics!

Gabby is sleeping on me now, so i get 2 hands to use the computer and i am watching tv. love when she sleeps on me, even tho it means i get nothing done, and right now i really need to get stuff done. Just moved and my house is full of dust. we had kitchen and baths redone, and some new drywall in bedrooms, so there is a layer of dust and grime all over every surface. We dont even have counter tops yet, so we are eating a lot of frozen meals and everything with paper plates and plastic forks. I have been slowly trying to clean but its so hard with a baby. You will all find out soon enough

Enjoy sleep while you can, pregnant ladies! Your body will quickly adjust to sleep deprivation tho once you have your babies and you will learn to function on less sleep. Gabby usually goes down between 10 and 11, and wakes up sometime between 3 and 6, and then again between 8 and 9. I consider myself lucky to have a baby who knows when night is, who will give me a stretch of at least 4 hours to sleep, and who doesn't have colic. She requires attention when awake, likes to be walked around, and has just started liking the baby carrier. I love my moby wrap! I also have a maya ring sling and have yet to figure out how to use it, so i pretty much hate it.

Aww she's lovely Chloe! I could pinch those chubby cheeks I think I'll defo be asking you ladies for bf'ing advice! Though I don't plan on doing it for too long, or forcing it, I'd still like to give it a go great that Gabby's sleeping well. I've never been a good sleeper so think I should be ok with the sleep deprivation, though dh will struggle! Not sleeping very well at the minute, I keep getting leg cramp

I know exactly what you mean about the dust! We're half way through a kitchen extension, hopefully the building work will be finished in a week, then dh & his friend are fitting the gorgeous new kitchen, I can't wait! We've been without a kitchen 2 weeks now so been using the dining room with microwave, kettle, mini fridge & a George foreman grill! Had problems with heating too, snowy outside yet the radiators are only luke warm!

We're home! We had the surgery this afternoon. I was a crying mess all day bc of nerves and bc DS couldn't eat from 4am to the surgery but they kept pushing it back. He was starving and crying all day. Once we got in, it was quick and went perfectly. He wasn't even that groggy afterward and was ready to eat. I am so relieved and exhausted.

Glad everything went well, Daydream! I can't imagine keeping food from an infant for that long. He must have been screaming! I would have been a crying mess too.

I just remembered that my birthday is next week. It's amazing what things become important and what is insignificant when there is a newborn at home! I told DH all i want for my birthday is for him to wake up in the middle of the night with gabby and to give me an evening off to drink beer and wine, and not have to worry about feeding her! But I think the best i'll get is wine and beer during evening hours. I'll still be waking up with her at 4am.

Daydream, so happy everything went smoothly and it's over, I kept thinking about you. Wishing Harrison a quick and easy recovery

Chloe, thank you for sharing the picture, she is so adorable, makes me eager to meet my own little girl. I'd like to bf, but I'm already thinking about different ways to sneak in a glass of wine or a pint of beer here and there, some meals just taste so much better with it. I better get those baby bottles ready.

All the moving and remodeling on top of being pregnant or having a newborn is exhausting. When we moved this summer I couldn't help much, because I was considered high risk. I'm finally done with settling in, all things have their own place, pictures are hanging etc. and we just found out that we might have to move again this summer, that should be interesting...

MrsP, thanks again for starting a new thread, I'm glad we can still share our experiences and not feel guilty about it. It's nice to continue following your journeys!
