star and dog, thanks! i am eager for that next growth scan cause my belly is really getting big now it seems!!!

dancing, good to hear from you... how is balancing work and home life going? i am sure it is a juggle and will take some time for routines, but so good the babies are in daddys good hands!!!!!

star, i have been thinking about you today!!!! so tomorrow is your thursday right? i bet you are so excited! are you being induced or csec,,,? i can't remember your plan, as baby brain is seriously taking over in my head. i hope everything goes smoothly! looking forward to hear about it when you have the time!! enjoy your little guy and all those snuggles!

i am starting to get more like uncomfortable with moving, sleeping, getting up and down, and even sitting on the couch i feel like is a challenge to go from stand to sit without causing some discomfort like the couch back feels too far away... maybe i need to set up tons of pillows so its a quicker transition. i told hubby today that i can tell February is going to be tough but march will be hell. BUT i am happy i am pregnant (i know many people would love to be in our shoes!) and i feel so excited and blessed to have this sweet little boy, it will all be worth it... just the end is always hard for me!! i guess if i have him around 4/14, then i am almost two months away. it feels like it should be closer!! thankfully some appointments will come up on the 26 of this month and then march 13th is the growth scan. not to mention all the kids appointments, like conferences with teachers and kindergarten tours, etc! and valentine celebration! all exciting and it just helps to have things on the calendar ya know?

so how are all the new mommas and babies?!?! seriously need to hear how everyone is doing!

Good luck star!!!

Juliet, wonderful news that everything looks ok! 30 weeks is right when I started to get really uncomfortable too.

Dancing- so happy to hear the twins are thriving! My DH & I are toying with the idea of him sometimes staying home while I work. He's a great dad!

Wish, dogmommy, October & koj how are all of you guys?

Life is pretty good here. My little man Finn is asleep on my chest as I type he's a real sweetie (except for when he's hungry & then he goes insane lol). Starting to settle into a good routine now, which is nice. Very tired but it's all worth it

Juliet, hope the last 10 weeks or so fly by for you. I also always struggled so much in the end of pregnancy, come think of it my pregnancies were basically just awful almost the entire way through which is a large part of having my tubes removed this time. I hope that you can manage some rest with your other kiddos around.

star - thinking of you today! Can't wait to hear the good news and see photos of your little squish! You've been way more patient than I would have managed.

scooby - newborn snoozes on your chest are the best things ever. My DS was really big so he kind of grew out of that stage super fast but now I have a tiny little dancer and she will be able to do it for a long time.

We are doing well here. Tessa is finally emerging out of her preemie sleepiness and spending more time awake and alert every day. Which is good in terms of feeding her (she was hard to wake before) but I won't lie part of me will miss being able to just relax and cuddle her all day rather than trying to entertain and put her down for a nap.

Hi all, glad to hear you are all well

Caleb Noah arrived at 21:38 last night 8lb 15oz

Ended up being pretty quick, thu broke waters at 12:30, drip went up at 2:30 as contractions weren’t happening, they upped the dose 3 times before contractions properly got going about 8pm, before that didn’t really feel anything much, by 9pm they we’re pretty bad and I was 6cm then 38 minutes later he was here!

Had another episiotomy and haemorrhaged but half the amount I lost with dd so don’t feel as bad as I did after with her, my placenta was bloody huge though haha

He’s so squidgy and dd will be here soon to meet him for the first time

Juliet, hope you can get some rest but sounds like you’re doing an amazing job with your other children too!

Congrats star!!! You make it sound like a piece of cake enjoy him and DD!

Juliet I hope it goes by quickly for you. It does seem to drag after 32 weeks. But you're already 30 weeks down.

Scooby and 3c I can't wait for those snuggles!

Afm induction is scheduled next Friday!

I take it back about losing half the amount as with dd, it was 850ml so not quite as much but enough

Dogmommy, haha it didn’t feel like it at the time, I was just in shock at how quickly I suddenly felt his head coming! Good luck next Friday but sure will be on here before then

Happy birthday little Caleb! Great name too!

Yikes, that's a lot of blood star. Hopefully you can replenish your iron and feel strong soon. He is a big boy, you did great!

Thanks everyone for the positive thoughts! I’m about 30 weeks now so thinking I’ll have 9 weeks left !! They are just going to be long ! Had a bit of a cry today. Pregnant emotions i guess !

Thank you everyone for the congrats, we’re all very happy

Sat night he had a marathon 12hr feed, unfortunately this started at 5pm so carried on all night, eventually I got an hr and a half’s sleep
Sun night was better, managed about 5 hrs sleep but he didn’t settle til 1am as was very windy
Last night was better between 9pm and 6:30am he was up 3 times and I managed 7hrs sleep so feeling better today
Other than that he is very calm and content, he’s much happier in his cot during the day too than what Madeleine used to be as she was always sleeping on us so I hope this is a good sign

3c or Anyone with Frosties, do you know what you will do with them if you don’t plan on using them? I’ve got 4 and at the moment we have said we won’t try again but I’m not so sure as who knows how I might feel one day
I had a dream last night we were donating one to a single man, it meant I had to be pregnant and we were going for a scan and I couldn’t go through with it and said I was keeping it, it felt so real like I really had to give away a baby and really made me think About my embryos and how I don’t like any of the options other than using the more myself!

Juliet, how are you feeling?

How are all the babies?
